Search It

I was on my yahoo email yesterday, and I saw that the most searched thing was Psalm 46:

Psalm 46[a]
    For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth.[b] A song.
 1 God is our refuge and strength,
   an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
   and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
   and the mountains quake with their surging.[c]

 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
   the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
   God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
   he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

 7 The LORD Almighty is with us;
   the God of Jacob is our fortress.

 8 Come and see what the LORD has done,
   the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
   to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
   he burns the shields[d] with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
   I will be exalted among the nations,
   I will be exalted in the earth.”

 11 The LORD Almighty is with us;
   the God of Jacob is our fortress. 

You see, Christians are scared about their futures right now. You can tell by the things that are searched most. Listen to the lyrics to a lot of all of the popular Christian music right now--so many of them are about overcoming brokenness (with God). People may look strong, but they are really so vulnerable and in-secure. So today, I'm encouraging you to go out, to help people know that they aren't alone in their struggles. And, when you do that, you'll find that your own struggles began to fade as you engulf yourself in the needs of those around you. Because, if it's not about you, your issues don't seem half as important.~Elizabeth
