PTL and...was able to make the connection easily, and arrive at this destination. Ah, miracles still happen!
It is a beautiful day here, with the sun shining, and pleasant temperatures. Yes, it is wonderful. What saddens me is the news that someone decided to kill 20+ young people at Virginia Tech. I think, Father, why would anyone do that - what kind of hatred boiled up inside this man and caused him to want to murder?
I do not understand, but I do trust, and believe...Scripture makes it clear that it is HE who rules in the affairs of man (read Daniel 4 - even applied to Nebuchadnezzar, surely an evil rules). The Lord does not explain - and Jesus never made excuses for or tried to explain what His Father did, was doing, and would do.
Therefore, in the face of this evil, and of all the evil in the world, I stand fast, knowing that evil will be with us only UNTIL such time as it has wrought whatever the Lord had in mind for it to accomplish, and then...it shall be taken out, and "the glory of the LORD will cover the earth as the water covers the sea," and the end shall be even more wondrous than the beginning. Amen!!
