My OP (obstinate procrastination) set in or maybe it's life or maybe I wasn't suppose to write. I do know my heart breaks for what's happened in Orlando! Very, very sad. I grieve for any untimely death. Christians are being martyred every day around the world and some in very horrific ways. Rom.12:15, "Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with them that weep." We weep for those in Orlando! Amen.
My prayer in the tragedy of what happened, the evil of the gunman is overshadowed by the outpouring of human compassion and Jesus' words of Matt. 5:4 comes to volition. As well as Rom. 12:21b, "... but overcome evil with good!" Amen!
I also pray the assurance we Christians have about death and the life after. Those in Orlando that died left their shell, body, but in that temporary shell is a soul that lives on. Now it's up to God to judge those souls. Read Matt.10:28. Christian's heaven is not the paradise bought by killing someone but by Jesus, who died and rose again to assure us passage there. And death is just a passing over as Paul says in 1 Cor. 15:54d&55, "Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" This is yours for the asking, Jesus is the way, the only way!
I'm glad my letter before this one never made, this one was more God's heart and not my interpretation. God is good, even when we can't see it, it's called faith and faith will get you through! Amen. God bless!
