Broken, but not abandoned...





It is at time like these that the most natural questions are asked.
Why?
What could we have done?
What did we do?
Where is God?
Why these people?
What can I do?
one person?
I challenge you... What can one person do?
Einstein
Darwin
Galileo
Gandhi
Mother Theresa
Churchill
C.S. Lewis
Martin Luther
Martin Luther KING
Jesus ~ behold I have come to make all things new.
What can one person do?
Hitler?
Stalin?
Qaddafi?
Hussein?
Bin Laden?
McVeigh?
Klebold?
Harris?
Oswald?
Booth?
one question recently posed to me... Why not you?
Are you immune to trial tribulation?
What is your response to your affliction?
I challenge you to ask yourself... these questions... and ultimately not necessarily answer them but not be so quick to dismiss them.
Especially
the Where is God...
I believe He is the fresh water being shipped.
The food being delivered.
The tens of millions being donated....
the thankless hours that the volunteers give carrying the dead, wounded and debased.
He is the airplanes delivering the supplies...
the shovels digging for life... He is in the ray of hope the separated are resting on.
Is it a perfect response to an imperfect disaster... no.
Is it a outpouring of brotherly love, sacrifice... irrational comfort and generosity?
I think so...
the question is what do you think?
Love you.
