Question to God
What in this world is going on? Over the past year we’ve witnessed death and destruction of astronomical measure. Since yesterday, I’ve watched the death toll in the mid-east raise to over 20,000 due to the earthquake, and that number will undoubtedly climb substantially. 1,400 just died in Guatemala due to mudslides from Hurricane Stan. Hurricane Katrina took over 1000 lives and 226,000 perished in the Asian tsunami. All this, plus more, in less than a year!
Currently, the US government is scrambling like crazy to minimize the potential damage that the H5N1 Avian Flu poses. Some fear that this could be the next pandemic killing millions of Human Beings here very soon!
Heavenly Father, are we in the end-of-times here on Earth? If not, why is all this death and destruction happening? If this world is of the ego, then why isn’t it making us feel safe?
With all that’s going on, my ego is getting shaken to the core. At times, it seems I’d welcome death via disaster just to be free of the insanity of this upside-down world, then a real tragedy strikes and fear of death sets in. Another personal area that’s affected by all these deaths is my decreased drive to pursue health, financial, and educational goals. For all those people listed above, every ounce of energy spent towards their personal goals vanished in a blink of an eye. I know it’s detrimental to have that outlook but it’s difficult to ignore the logic behind it.
One positive out of all this chaos is my drive to intensify spirituality in my life is climbing exponentially.
While I have you here, I’d like to extend a massive appreciation for your daily words of Love dictated to Gloria. And to Gloria, who unselfishly shares them with the world. I really think you should give her a monetary raise!
I love you,
