Weirdest title ever, I know. 😉 We could just call it late-night musings. Y’all could talk to me… we could have a conversation?
Listening to Thru the Bible this week, Dr. McGee is going through his introduction to the book of Micah. He talked about how there is a point at which nations have a no-turning back moment, a moment when, not because God lacks grace, but because the nation lacks the will to climb back into the Lord’s hands. (Today is 7/17/15 http://www.oneplace.com/ministries/thru-the-bible-with-j-vernon-mcgee/listen/)*
Serendipitously, Keoni’s latest blog post is about America jumping the shark. http://hawaiianlibertarian.blogspot.com/2015/07/are-we-there-yet.html And that’s how I’ve been feeling … like this latest thing is just the straw on the camel’s back. I mean, nothing is surprising me now. Planned Parenthood selling baby parts? Eh. They hook pimps up and ignore child molesters already… Trans folks okay in the military (has anyone thought about how they’ll figure out the fitness qualifiers)? Just another day in the neighborhood.
God’s just not *wanted* around these parts, and that’s darn clear. One day I feel like “popcorn! What’s next? What could *possibly* be next?” and the next day I’m mourning, wanting a pile of ashes and some torn clothes so that I can sit and weep over what’s been lost.
I know I’ve been watching the skies and heavily into eschatology for years now, am I just crying Chicken Little once again? (FWIW I am, at this point, looking for the demonization and marginalization of committed Christians before I am betting on the Trumpet’s sound. Of course I have no clue and don’t claim to. After all my time and study, I agree with my hubs. LOL that happens to me a lot!).
I’m a pre-tribber, and y’all know that by now. I’ve got work to do every day God gives me on this earth. But I’m wondering if those days are getting short… one way or t’other?
Oh well, if there’s one lesson God is pounding home to me in this season, it’s that He’s got this! Whatever comes, I can trust in Him for everything, big and small.
*Y’all know that Dr. McGee has been with the Lord since before I got out of high school, hopefully. Serendipity.
