I was going to do a post about my weekend tonight, however because of what happened in Boston this afternoon, you'll have to wait. I think today I just wanna express that my thoughts and prayers are with the victims and the families that were affected by the bombs at the Boston Marathon.
This all reminds me that my life is a gift and it could be ended at any moment at any time of the day. God gives the the blessing of life everyday and I know that I wouldn't be alive without him, but I always wonder when something like this happens why I get to live another day when people of all ages all over the world die everyday.
Why am I so blessed?
Jeremiah 29:11 says "For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'He plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future."
That is a very bold statement but I believe every word of it! At times like this, some people might doubt God and all Christians have doubts somewhere down the line, but I know that this is all part of God's plan. He will use this for good!
They say it might be a terrorist attack, but no terrorist groups have come forward yet, so they don't know. Well, I personally have no idea, it could be anybody. I plumb scares me though to think that terrorists are striking the US and with North Korea's threats, we could be in a little trouble. That terrifies me. At times like this, I do think the best thing for me to do would be to rely on God and to pray for the victims and others involved. My favorite Bible verse is something that I like to say to myself as well.
John 14:1, my favorite verse, says "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; Trust also in me."
Please pray for Boston,
