What next, what next? That is what I keep hearing people say about the world's current state. The Great Flood of 2010 in Nashville has certainly allowed folks to show their true spirit. So many have answered the call to action. Faith without works is just emptiness. Allowing God to use you for greatness is such a blessing. I encourage everyone to try it sometimes. I was so moved this morning on the way to work. The latest Casting Crowns song came on. It is called If We Ever Needed You. It certainly captures the situation of the world at present. With the massive oil disaster in the once beautiful Gulf of Mexico on top of the other disasters that have been coming at us combined with the lack of leadership in the White House, we are indeed in need of God's hand now. I am praying for all of the folks who depend on the Gulf for their livelihood. The oil spill is threatening to wipe out a way of live for so many people. It is truly devastating to sit and watch as the oil keeps spewing and humankind is helpless. The best scientific minds in the word are clueless when it comes to stopping this disaster. Pray mightily that the Lord will put an end to this oil spill. He is the only one that can do it at this point. Hopefully our magnificent Gulf will be restored to its incredible beauty but it may take years. Of course, with God all things are possible and I am praying that He reveals his majesty in this task. As Casting Crowns sing, "With shipwrecked faith, the idols rise. We do what is right in our own eyes. Our children now will pay the price. We need Your light, Lord, shine Your light. Amen!
