It is hard to think that the images that cover the TV screen are real. Are happening right now. To think of the emotions that someone is experiencing right now. I can not even pretend to imagine.
I should be packing right now since we are heading to FL in a few hours. When tragedies like this happen it is always hard to justify going on with life as normal, when for so many, it is not.
I don't understand how things like this are allowed to happen, how God allows them to occur. I know this is an idea that has kept many people from wanting to know the Lord. I too wrestle with it often and have accepted this as something I will not fully know or feel sure of my answer to this side of eternity.
Yet I must trust Him and know that He is fully good. I guess that is why the Bible refers to child-like faith so often. There are questions that can not be answered where faith, being confident in the One we can not see or fully comprehend, must suffice.
Today I will do the only thing that I can, the most effective thing I could do anyway. Pray for Japan. Pray for the people.
