Scary Things

You just never know, do you, what a day may bring forth?

Today a good friend told me how her life was falling to pieces with one swoop of the ax.

Her soul is intact, mind you, but her outer life is a nightmare that makes Afghanistan look like a next door neighbor.

Which reminds me that He, the living Lord is here, as well as there. Good thing. My brother just signed up for the Army, and he may be sent to Afghanistan.

Scary things are everywhere.

The domestic situation in Jesus' day was no picnic either. He, the Prince of Peace, was born under life-threatening situations to poor people far away from the comfort of home. I guess He knows.

"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;)" 2 Corinthians 10:3,4

If we could see as God sees, we would see his protective love and light where there is darkness. Give us eyes!
