Just got notice that my in-laws, who have been diligently serving Christ overseas in a troubled area, were robbed at gunpoint last night. They were forced to give over everything of value in their home. Among many other things, they’ve lost everything electronic in their possession – including my father-in-laws dissertation notes, all of their electronic files, and digital photos.
It’s a shocking reminder that all is not well in the world.
But that will not always be the case:
And then at last, the sign that the Son of Man is coming will appear in the heavens, and there will be deep mourning among all the peoples of the earth. And they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with the mighty blast of a trumpet, and they will gather his chosen ones from all over the world —from the farthest ends of the earth and heaven. – Matthew 24:30-31 (NLT)
Please join with me in praying for my mother and father-in-law, that God will bring peace, joy, and comfort in this time of adversity.
