I thought I would should post something uplifting after all the doom. I was reading the book of Amos about the Day of the Lord. This was the way Amos described it:
"In that day you will be like a man who
runs from a lion— only to meet a bear.
Escaping from the bear, he leans his
hand against a wall in his house—
and he’s bitten by a snake".
That Amos, what a joker. Let me see if I can do the same.
Like a man who fled a Coronavirus and met a climate fire.
Who leaned his hand against the wall of his house
and it collapsed in a quake.
Several dead, hundreds hurt as quake hits eastern Turkey https://t.co/8jPLRupMkR— Al Jazeera English (@AJEnglish) January 24, 2020
It is all God’s fault
You can hear the cries already. How can a loving God do such things! How can God allow such suffering? Well as far as I am concerned we deserve everything that is coming. Frankly I am surprised that God has been patient for so long. There comes a point when something can no longer be fixed and it is better to start again. And yet. And yet. God is still merciful. He is still willing to forgive. Amazing grace. I am humbled.
