Someone posted this as their status on Facebook, and I thought it was beyond interesting. I never realized the dates, but I have noticed the destruction of human kind for some time now and I think it's about time someone is on the same page as me. The media is full of these stories, and for the most part I really try not to listen. I bury my head and pretend that this world is not falling apart, but it is, even if I try not to notice. Now some would argue that earthquakes, murders and (insert horrible thing here) have been happening forever. Yes, they have, and in some cases, the murder rate is probably down a percentage or two and earthquakes that kill hundreds of thousands of people only happen every hundred years or so, but you wouldn't know that if you watched the news. They take any horrible story and exploit the heck out of it until you are left balled up in a corner, crying your eyes out. Okay, maybe it's not to that extreme, or maybe it is, and you are like me and bury your head. Media aside, there is a lot of destruction in this world. I think I may be noticing it more now that I am raising a child, because it's scary to think your child has to grow up with murders, pedophiles and terrorists falling from the sky onto our buildings.
As I was sitting in church the other day, I was thinking about the Lord's Coming and I was disguraged by the fact that I did not see any signs of it. To tell you the truth, I really wouldn't know what to look for. I mean if you take the biblical quote above literally then it could be any day now, but it could have been any day in the past too, when there has been wars, food shortages, and natural disasters. I would like to think that the Lord is coming in my lifetime. What an amazing experience. I cannot fathom what that day would be like, but how glorious to never have to lose a loved one ever again and to be with them and Him forever. An eternity without pain, murder, famine, disease. I'm ready for it! Are you?
