Perhaps it is the time of year. Perhaps the time of the decade. Perhaps an end is about to begin.
I listened to a prediction of the end of the world. That didn’t happen. And has now been revised. In this case I’m sure the prediction is man-made, not God-based.
Nevertheless, the tornado season has been strong – destroying towns and making even the strong heart faint.
Which reminds me to check out my own time clock. How close is the end? Just around the corner?
I add to these considerations the stories of friends with cancer and other physically debilitating diseases. Life is only alive by the grace and sustenance of God.
That’s not a bad thing. In fact, I would say that is a reassuring thing. When this life ends, if we are in God’s hands through the wounded hands of Jesus, we are headed to a great beginning.
Doesn’t make the leaving any easier. Does make the reunion even sweeter!
