Shake, Rattle, and Roll
I had a piece I wrote back in February that I found and feel I should share now. God Bless
2-27-10 Earthquakes and shakings
I stand in awe of the recent earthquakes, including the Chilean earthquake that just happened today that was 8.8. It tore asunder huge cement highways, thick pillars, and buildings. It broke apart things that have been around a long time.
I feel this is a symbol and analogy of what God is doing out of his love as he woos our heart to turn from our sin, false structures, developments, and imaginations. If we chose to not tear down, restore, and make them right he is forced to remove them as gently as possible before we are totally “self destroyed”. Our Father holds all power and it is nothing for him to bring to dust these huge, seemingly invincible, mammoth, structures we have built.
They have stood even unknowingly as memorials to our futility, self exaltation, lust of the eye, lust of the flesh, and pride of life. Today is their last day and they will come down at a moments notice. Years of our futile investment made to nothing. What can be shaken will be shaken and what is left will be beautiful. What is left has shown its strength and worth. Oh what beauty in Gods strength. He shakes the things that need to fall through to leave what is beautiful, what is just, what is pure, what is noteworthy, what is love.
