Dedication to the Sandy Hook Victims
The new year has turned successfully beyond the 2012
end-of-the-world scare. For those of you who doubted, we are all still here. It
is no wonder that humanity suffers such insecurities and frailties. We come
face to face with our futility.
Through the ages it is prophesied that the world will come
to a scorching finale in the blink of an eye. We are expecting it. Science
gives proofs of this too, for those who are not driven by faith or are
I was ready to meet my maker, if that was the way things
went, and had deep peace with it, although I did not think everything would
come to its end just yet. Having said this, I do believe signs would show we
are in the End Days.
We can witness this by looking at all the duress and
cataclysmic events that are taking place and how depraved people have become.
This brings me to my next point. I am dedicating this space to all the victims
that perished in the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Connecticut just over one
week before Christmas under the hands of a more-than-troubled youth. It would
seem he lost his soul somewhere along his journey, and took first the life of
his mother, followed by innocent children and staff, some who died heroes.
As I watched children at play over the holiday season, I
kept being reminded of those little children whose laughter will never ring
again in this cold world as they lost the chance to enjoy life to the fullest
at the hands of a mad youth. God is sovereign and nothing is hidden from His
sight. We can rest assured those little ones are in glory with Him. Even so,
such a traumatic loss is tragic, and their families still need to be comforted.
It is for them we pray.
