Joel 3:14-16

Multitudes, multitudes
in the valley of decision!
For the day of the LORD is near
in the valley of decision.

The sun and moon will be darkened,
and the stars no longer shine.

The LORD will roar from Zion
and thunder from Jerusalem;
the earth and the sky will tremble.
But the LORD will be a refuge for his people,
a stronghold for the people of Israel.

As I venture into today, I remember how beautiful the moon and sun were BOTH shining early this morning as I took the kids to school. It was beautiful.

I remember that as I walked Maria out to her car very early this morning before the sun came up we saw several very bright stars shining in a clear, clear sky. It was breathtaking.

And then I think of a day when the sun, moon, and stars might not shine.

The fear that would overtake even the most evil of men.

Why does fear have to motivate us so much more frequently than simply faith?

Why can’t we choose to follow Him today……….even when we don’t feel great fear?

I want my children to love me not out of fear but out of a genuine faith that I love them and that I am here for them……….unconditionally.

God wants nothing less from us.

I hope you’ll choose Him today.
