Anonymous said: What does fearing the lord mean?
have you ever looked at the ocean? vast and unfathomable really. looking from a distance its beautiful and you have this sense of respect for it. You recognize you can never control it. Up close with your knees deep in water you have a greater sense of its beauty and touch but also of its power. You feel the small waves brush your knee caps. Now go take a swim and don’t stop swimming. You’re in the middle of the ocean and theres no land nearby. Panic hits you like a freight train when you realize how small you truly are and how powerless you are. Its a sense of helplessness when confronted with power thats to be in awe of
Thats what i see fearing the Lord to be. Being a distance away looking at the ocean but in your heart feeling as if you’re right in the middle. Its a power unimaginable yet its also a love that allows us to be His. Thats humbly frightening
All done for you and I. There’s nothing that any of us can do to change how much God loves us. He sent His only son to take away our sins so that we may have everlasting life. So many of us look for love all the while ignoring the greatest love story ever told. And it’s more than just a story. It’s reality. Christ died for each of us. If you ever doubt that you are loved and cherished, look up and all around. All that was made for you. Look in the mirror, that’s God’s work and you were created for a purpose. God doesn’t make mistakes, He creates masterpieces.
There was a HUGE fire in Valparaiso, Chile. More than 500 houses are destroyed, thousands of people lost everything, some people died, animals are injured and firefighters can’t stop it. The situation is out of control, and all of this happened just one week after an 8.0 earthquake.
I guess half of you didn’t know that this was happening on this side of the planet, so please, pray for Valparaiso, pray for Chile, these people need support!
Here are some pictures.
