In Which Groovy is Finally Ready to Whine About the Weather

...But I won't because there are waaaaaaaaay worse things than winters that never seem to end.

Like the earthquake and tsunami reported in Japan this morning that now threatens the whole Pacific rim.

Or the ugliness of divorce.

Or abuse.

Or slavery.

Or__________________________________. You fill in the blank; There's plenty of gloom and doom in the world to choose from.

However, there is also Hope. There is personal hope for each one of us in the Lord Jesus Christ. Do you know Him? More importantly, do you trust Him? In these very troubled times, we need an anchor that holds. After a multitude of years in His service, I can testify that Jesus is a rock we can cling to. None of the events in the world today take Him by surprise and none of the events in your life are hidden from Him.

He IS in control and He cares about you. Please, trust Him today - with your past, your present, and your future - and find PEACE!

Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come and see what the LORD has done,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the shields with fire.

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”

The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
