In The Storms

After reading the news and watching the images and videos of those catastrophes in Burma and China. These images of suffering and hopelessness burned right into my memory and watered my eyes.

What the heck is going on???

God, I want to praise you in this storm.
Fill my head with more understanding of their suffering.
Move my heart to care and compassion for the people.
Use my hands to do something about it.

Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. 5For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many. 6You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8All these are the beginning of birth pains.

9"Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

- Matthew 24:4-14 (emphasis added)
