Deadened by Destruction

5"Look around at the godless nations. Look long and hard. Brace yourself for a shock. Something's about to take place and you're going to find it hard to believe."
Habakkuk 1:5 (The message)

How much destruction can you see before you simply stop feeling? As I continue to watch the news coverage of things happening in New Orleans I cannot tear my eyes away, but at the same time, I wonder why don't I feel anything? When 9/11 happened I had emotions all over the place: anger, sadness, hope, fear and more. I watched anxiously when Florida was hit by hurricane after hurricane, cried when the tsunami hit, watched in grief as the Israelies were evacuated from their homes in gaza... but this,as we watch New Orleans sink into the sea like Atlantis, I only watch in shock and awe and wonder what next? My prayer today is "How much can we handle God before we break? Before we turn to You and ask for help?" It feels like the end times, but maybe it's just a bad year.

God, come to our aide.
