"Walk By Faith, Not By Sight" 2 Corinthians 5:7

Anniversary of a Tragedy

Just two days from now will mark the 12th anniversary of a fatal day in the United States of America’s history.  On September 11, 2001, the nation was shook when two planes crashed into the World Trade Center, commonly known as the Twin Towers.  Likewise, an attack on the Pentagon is Washington D.C. was executed.  Many innocent lives were lost that day, and have been lost since as a result to the war overseas.

World Trade Center, Sept. 11, 2001

The U.S. is coming upon this day with the brink of a possible war this year.  Things have been heating up with Syria.  It is truly a scary time in our history and I am not sure what to make of the future.

Keeping that in mind, it is important to remember that God has our future in His hands.  Though we may be disgusted or supportive of Obama’s choices, the events taking place around the world, or our government, we need to remember that the most important thing is to continue to trust in God and pray for our leaders, country, and planet, and humanity.  We need to remember the innocent ones who have been pushed into the middle of this out of choice; those that serve in our military or who have served.  They have risked so much for us, and continue to do so everyday.  God has blessed us with these strong and courageous individuals to help protect our mortality.  But, how can we protect our immortal lives?; those that will carry on either in heaven or in hell?  That is the big question.  We need to believe that God sent His son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins so that we can have an eternal place in heaven.  And, by saving those that we love, we need to share this great news with everyone!  The good, the bad.
