When Disaster Strikes
I needed to blog about the recent earthquake in China that had an unbearable aftermath. My mum and I were watching the victims of the tragedy trapped under piles and piles of heavy concrete. They were stuck like rats in a trap. Sometimes its just the humane thing to ask why? Why must disasters like this happen? Well, on Sunday, this preacher from my church gave a very good answer from the book of Revelations. The answer: Its Gods will for this to occur. This is because He wants all of us to realise that this earth is not ours and the world is not our true abode. Our home is in heaven and the place we live now is just temporary. Whatever challenges that come our way, remember that this is the will of God. Even if it might seem hard at first, every cloud has its silver lining. May the Lord keep them safe.
