Today already has been a crazy day. Joel Rosenberg simply said, "SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS SOCIALIZED MEDICINE: Implosion more likely." America took a treasonous blow, thanks to SCOTUS and the failure to see the Obamacare bill for what it is, Colorado is charred in catastrophic fires, dangerous heat waves are affecting millions, and in the Philippines tropical storm Doksuri, AKA the Giant Eyeball of Death, is blowing up to a deep convection never before seen by trackers.
America is scorched and burning. America's President welcomes the Egyptian Jihadist, caliphate-seeking enemy of Israel to power. Are the two related? I believe indisputably! Things are only going to get worse from here.
Sometimes when the world is going crazy, the best thing to do is simply read some scripture. Feed on it, be bathed in its refreshing waters of truth, let it wash over you and calm your spirit. On days like this, when there is so much calamity, I just read. It is different than studying, or searching, or listening, or skimming. I just read His word and He restores me to equilibrium.
"As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country." (Proverbs 25:25) Let His word wash over you as cold water, refreshing you in good news!
I found John 15:1-11 and its parallel passages in Isaiah 5 to be my refreshment. How about you?
