Look up!

Psalms 46
8 Attention, all! See the marvels of God!
He plants flowers and trees all over the earth,
9 Bans war from pole to pole,
breaks all the weapons across his knee.
10 "Step out of the traffic! Take a long,
loving look at me, your High God,
above politics, above everything

This world has gone crazy.  It seems like every time I open a news website another disaster occurs.  War, famine, people trying to escape their countries for freedom only to die on the way.  The politics have gone way beyond what I've ever seen in my life.  Traffic is always heavy in New Jersey, people are annoyed, impatient, bosses demand schedules pushing drivers to do what they can to get through the traffic.  It's a treadmill that doesn't seem to end.  But above all is God.  He is still in control of the universe.  He created the flowers and trees.  He created us to live a simple life- it's us that made it all so complicated.  I am constantly challenged to find ways to simplify my days and find the priorities.  But the question always remains, how long God?  How long must we wait for peace on earth?  Here's what Jesus said,

John 3
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

That none should perish.
