During my devotional time I have begun reading Max Lucado's book, When God Whispers Your Name. It's a great book filled with lessons written by a master of the English language. Max Lucado expresses in word what most of us are thinking. To that end, today the entry was entitled, "Late Night Good News" and we all just LOVE last night news, right? Doom and gloom is the prevalent forecast topped with rain, floods or a possible hurricane. Anyway, the end of this selection was a dose of good sense and I am passing it along. If you wonder where God is and why hasn't He upset the current direction of today's society, don't think for one minute this stuff is flying under His radar. Our Lord is alive and well. As Max so eloquently expresses:
"The engineer has not abandoned the train. Nuclear war is no threat to God. Yo-yo economies don't intimidate the heavens. Immoral leaders have never derailed the plan.
God keeps his promise.
See for yourself. In the manger. He's there.
See for yourself. In the tomb. He's gone.

When God Whispers Your Name
Father God, may we continue to worship You and trust You are in complete control. From the moment of creation until the day You call us home, our El Roi, our Jehovah-shammah holds the whole wide world in Your hands. Amen!
