Now just 3 hours ago we had a even stronger and major earthquake which started as a 5.2 but was upgraded to a 5.6. There were more news report feeds on my Facebook and this time more damage. A good amount of damage reports have been reported from cracks to items off the wall. Some roads have been damaged and DOT is working to fix. I'm sure some of the structural damage won't be found until morning. This earthquake has been said to "beat" the old record from 1952 in El Reno, Oklahoma of 5.5. The last two years we have had blizzards, floods, tornadoes, 50+ days of heat over 100, drought and now earthquakes (which are not new but never in the same time frame).
Time - running through my head - how much time do we have? to live here on Earth? How much time to spend with our loved ones? Time is short my friends. Time - I'm reminded of a verse:
"whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow.
For what is your life?
It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away."
James 4:14The subject is about boasting even things tomorrow but in this verse the reminder that our life is short.
Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? He paid the price for us - the sacrifice for all our sins, redeeming us and making us white as snow. Without Jesus Christ, His forgiveness, we are apart from God Almighty and will not have eternal life. Will you choose today - life or death? Eternal life, I pray, is your answer. Asking Lord Jesus to forgive your sins and help you change your ways. Turning to Jesus with your whole heart, asking Him to heal, mend and shed His light on the areas in your life that need to change. He will forgive as this is a gift from God.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world through Him might be saved."
