In an instant

There is so much talk, tweeting, texting and blogging going on right now about the devastation and heartbreak that happened and continues in Japan. I watched CNN last night with tears rolling down my cheeks. I can't imagine. The devastation. The death. The hurt. The heartbreak. The mess. The images bring horror and nightmares. 
In fact, I'm not even going to post pictures of the devastation on my blog.

My heart is broken for the people of Japan. You know what this ache makes me think about? How we break the Lords heart. This world that we live in is fallen. It's a mess, filled with filth, heartbreak, horrors and sin. I believe that God is trying to get our attention. Something big is about to happen. It's no coincidence that the #1 trending topic on twitter yesterday was #prayforjapan. It's no coincidence when you hear newscasters telling millions on air that we need to pray for the people of Japan. None of this comes to surprise to the Lord. It is hard to understand why He allows things like this to happen but I believe with all my heart that He is trying to catch the world's attention. What is it going to take??

These earthquakes are getting bigger, they are becoming more frequent, and are moving across all the nations. This world was not made to last forever and neither were we.  This world is in desperate need, we are in desperate need, I am in desperate need of a Savior. 
I am so thankful that I have the Lord in my life. I would be a mess without Him.

Is the Lord shaking your world? Is it in pieces? Think He might be trying to get your attention? Don't ignore Him and try to push Him away. He will crumble it until you let Him in. He wants your heart. He wants to clean up your life and put you back together. We were all created for something greater than this world.

What is it going to take for God to get your attention? Another disaster?

I encourage you to watch this short music video.
{you might want to mute the music at the bottom of this blog first}

I wanna love because You love

I wanna give because You gave

I wanna reach my hand out to the lost

because I know Your hand can save

Only You, Lord can save

And remember this..
