But I am praying for the World…
Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Tsunamis, disasters of all kinds. Terrorists who think they are better than everyone else. Governments gone crazy, or just stupid. So called human beings torturing and abusing women, children and animals and each other. Evil is becoming the norm. Or at least trying to. God is speaking to all of us and only a handful are listening. Sometimes it is hard for me to understand why evil still has a ruling hand. I sometimes ask God why He even allowed evil to make a stand at all.
A young man who lived in my home town of Topeka plots to set off a bomb at Fort Riley in Manhattan, Kansas. He grew up in Topeka then decides he hates America. People of all ages in other states and around the world are doing the same thing and wanting to join ISIS of all things.
The Illinois tornadoes brought back memories of my experience in the June 8, 1966 tornado in Topeka, Kansas.
And then this morning I hear a news story on our local news channel of a mother in Philadelphia, that left her severely handicapped son out in a wooded area with just a blanket and his Bible, and then went to another state to see her boyfriend.
I am a born again Christian, but I am not a perfect person. I struggle with understanding why things are as they are. I am not a preacher and don’t especially want to be. I am not very good at reading my Bible as I should and I don’t know all the answers. I do know and believe God is in control. I believe Jesus died for my sins and I will go to Heaven to meet Him some day. Then
maybe, no, I will know the answers to why things are as they are. These things listed in my post is just a drop in the bucket. I don’t know why I am getting on my soap box, but something about this morning’s story about the mother just hit me different I guess. I felt I needed to make a post about this. I can be mean and nasty and I get sooooo very MAD at my kids sometimes. But I can only hope and pray that I would never be so stupid, cruel or uncaring as to do what this mother did. I hope and pray that no one in my family, or friend’s families would ever be so stupid or hateful as to want to join the likes of ISIS. Or be cruel and evil to other humans or animals.
I guess maybe God wants me to do a little preaching and try and reach someone for Him. I don’t know. I really do pray for the whole world, including my readers and followers. I pray for their happiness, successes and whatever else is good for their lives. I hope I don’t lose anyone over this post. If I do, then so be it. I love you all as God loves us all. He wants the very best for us and maybe that is why He lets the world go on until everyone turns to Him and Jesus so they can be in Heaven with them. But it will end at sometime. No one but God knows when. Not even Jesus knows the final dead line. Whatever your beliefs are, please think about it. Think about how the world is today and what it may be like tomorrow.
Stay Safe and God Bless!
