Twenty One

I held back and didn't say too much on social media. 
I waited for some pastors to speak out and then I could share what they were saying on my wall.
But there was nothing.


Silence.

Can you hear it?


Are we in shock?


Are we afraid?



Finally, Dr. Reverad Graham. 
Ann Voskamp.
Where is everybody else?

"But about that day or hour


no one knows,


not even the angels in heaven,


nor the Son,



but only the Father.
Mark13:32


Are we in shock?


Shock because maybe the truth is too undeniable.
Shock because this is just too horrific. 
Who posts a video of a brutal beheading of anybody?


 I couldn't sleep.
I just prayed.
Are we here?
Are we near the end?


I don't want to be.
I'm going to be honest. 
I've been silent at times because of tolerance and political correctness.



 Not this time.
"Take heed, keep on the alert; because we don't know when the appointed time will come..." Mark 13:33
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you, I do not give to you as the world gives. 
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
John 14:27
Hear the cries of your people, Lord!

P.S. Groups of churches did rise up and join together for a moment of silence on Sunday.

  1. We are living in scary times that get scarier and scarier. I don't understand WHY there is not more of an outcry against the terrible injustices that are going on. That might be the worst sin of all.....xo Diana

  2. I do think people are afraid to say what they think. esp. putting their words out there. We have to pray and hope somehow this can be stopped. It is horrible. HUGS

  3. I think it was Ben Franklin who said "people who trade their freedom for security have neither."

  4. What are you referring to here? Is it the uptake in violence again? I know how you feel; it is getting scarier and scarier. This morning on the news I heard about the military wives here have received threats and pictures. It is horrible that these things are back on our soil and so in our faces! This is truly a battle of good and very evil. All we can do is try to stay out of fear and stay in love and stay strong in our beliefs, no matter how we believe. Peace.
