WE LOVE YOU JAPAN: IT JUST SEEMS SO TRITE TO SAY IT!

I finally found some words-- a small tribute in the face of tragedy and loss beyond compare....
WE LOVE YOU, BEAUTIFUL SOULS OF JAPAN: IT JUST SEEMS SO TRITE TO SAY IT!
WE HURT AS MUCH AS WE CAN WITH YOU!


POSTED ON FB TODAY:

Sep.11th(NY), Jan.11th(Haiti), Mar.11th(Japan)...Luke 21:10, 11 says...Then Jesus said to his Disciples: Nation will rise against Nation & Kingdom against Kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines, & pestilences in various places & fearful events & signs from Heaven. Jesus says "For behold, I come quickly...(so ask yourself, Are U Ready?) . 

Thanks for this Peggy G.- you are awesome!!!!





As always, with Scripture--be sure to take it in CONTEXT. Who is speaking, Who is (He) speaking to, What are the circumstances, Where is He speaking, Is it Literal, Figurative, Allegory, Prophetic...? etc.

Having said that:  IF
1. HOW DO WE RECONCILE EVENTS LIKE THOSE MENTIONED ABOVE, WITH A LOVING GOD?
2. IS THERE ANY NEED TO PRAY, IF THESE THINGS ARE PREDICTED TO HAPPEN ANYWAY? IF SO, HOW DO WE PRAY?
3. SHOULD RELIGIOUS VIEWS BE KEPT PRIVATE? Are they Germain to current world events?
JUST ASKING? THESE QUESTIONS ARE MY PERSONAL REFLECTION, ON RECENT EVENTS AND THE STATE OF THE WORLD IN GENERAL.

 I FIRMLY BELIEVE IN PRAYER....BUT ACTIONS SPEAK VOLUMES TOO!
(FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD!)
FATHER,

 Help us to Forgive, Love, and accept (YOU), Your Personal Sacrifice for us, while we still have time! 
 &
MAY MIRACLES, HOPE AND HEALING, BE WITH THE PEOPLE OF JAPAN, AND ALL THOSE AFFECTED! MAY THEY FIND SOLACE AND COMFORT ANY WAY THEY CAN!

AMEN

FORGIVENESS THROUGH SACRIFICE?

Joshua 24:15 (New International Version, ©2011)

15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” 

 I LOVE YOU ALL AND RESPECT ANY AND ALL "RELIGIOUS OR PHILOSOPHICAL CHOICES",  I CHOOSE JESUS AS LORD. IT WORKS FOR ME.
