As I watch the news reports on Moore, OK, I can not imagine the insurmountable pain this community is going through. I will say that we are not promised a trouble-free life, but we are promised to never be alone. God is with us!
Isn’t it funny that not even division, scandals, poverty, or destruction can keep Americans from helping one another. We pull together like puppies snuggled under their mother’s warm belly, to find our security and purpose again. Our strength comes not from our own knowing, but from knowing Jesus as our Lord and Savior!
Race, culture, age, and monetary status are only piles of dust blown away, because what really matters in life has now become crystal clear. Love! Jesus tells us we are to love others as He loves us. And, how does Jesus love us?
He died an excruciating death nailed to a cross for our sins. And when we come before God, Jesus stands in front of us! God looks through his perfect, sinless Son to see us. We are holy!
We could never, ever reach that level of love for our fellow-man/woman. But we can try. Moore, OK; West, TX; Boston, MA; hurricane Sandy Victims, need help now and for a long time to come. Pray, donate, and pledge to give your time. Where there is need and want, there is a place for someone or someones to find their own purpose in life.
Moore, OK…God is with you and so are we, the American people!
