After waiting impatiently for the news from the first hand about the Biggest Earthquake in Japan, finally this morning I could read “Tales from Japan” posted by our blogger friend Stephen Barrett who live there, as I quoted a part of it below.
Well, there is not a whole much to stay that hasn`t already been said, not a lot to see that hasn`t already been seen
As we were out, I made it a plan to get some food and other supplies we might need, especially in light of the news of blackouts to come. And of course scarcity was before me; from convenient stores to grocery and even gasoline stands, there was little to nothing left of useful items nor gasoline. A sign of more difficulty to come.
Today I prayed with all my heart for those who are crying out in need and desperation. May their cries be heard and may aid swiftly come and may they know of His kindness and genuine love for them. It is better to enter into the Kingdom maimed then to lose oneself completely. If we are to suffer let it not be meaningless but bring forth good of every kind.
I am amazed at the goodness of heart that can be borne of great tragedy, yet, it is sad that it takes such disaster to move the human heart to such kindness. It seems though without great catastrophe humanity would easily lose itself to apathy and indifference.
So what is next? What is in store for tomorrow and the days to come? I do not know, but I must entrust myself to Him that makes all things to work towards His ultimate "good" purpose. If He holds the words of life, (as the apostle Peter said) where else can we go?
