Tic Toc Tic Toc

How many more natural disasters can we survive? Numbers of 68,000 gone in an earthquake, how many more in an hurricane? How much more will we be willing to put our financial futures in our tanks? How many more Rwandas? How many more Darfurs? How many more Tibets?
How many more servants shall we give on the altar before we change? How many Luthers, Ghandis, RFKs? The epidemics are gathering and will demand submission or decision out. Without God in the picture, without His promise to return in the picture, time is on the out and i want to live like i know that, like i believe that. I don't want any more evidence of this to wake me up over and over again, i want to stay my eyes deliberately, i want to taste now how sweet judgment will be, i have a list growing of what i want justice for. In my life time friends, this is several dominoes in to the collapse. He is coming, soon and very soon. The signs are alarming and exciting if you look. Believe.

...we only got four minutes to save the world! I'm making light of something that's grave. It's true. The end is coming, no? I ended up not going to Chicago. But interestingly enough, my sister went with her church friends and got home super late/early. Will you be in at all tomorrow? I remember you mentioning that you'll be with your madre. Anyway, see you soon...

Do you think God ever gets discouraged?

Erica said...

i think god gets frustrated... we're way worse than the isrealites... we've lost the art of believing.

I'm not sure about discouraged because that would imply in my mind of no hope and thats totally not God, i would tend to think more on the frustrated side, in the book of Isaiah God is telling the Isrealites 'i'm done with your sacrifices, they make me sick, your lips are close to me but your hearts are far from me' That sounds like a wounded friend to me.

God is wanting an intimacy with us that we can't even have with each other, something so much more special and yet we trade it away for temporary solutions that have eternal repercussions.
