Isaiah 55:8-9: Comfort In The Darkness

I do not pretend to understand why some things happen. But in times of deepest darkness, God chooses to shine His glorious plan into our hearts through stories such as this.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
~Isaiah 55:8-9

Armed with nothing but a flashlight and finding no signs of life, firefighter David Harmon made one final search of tornado wreckage and made the discovery of a lifetime.
“I shined the flashlight across it and said ‘I’ve got a baby doll.’ And before I got ‘I’ve got a baby doll’ out of my mouth, it moved,” Harmon said.
In pitch darkness, in the middle of a field, Harmon found a baby boy covered with mud and debris.
“As soon as we rolled the baby over, it took a gasp of air and started crying,” he said.

Babel

This sounds like a repeat of the Tower of Babel. On September 14, Nebraska Democratic State Senator Ernie Chambers filed a lawsuit against God.¬† The suit asks for a “permanent injunction ordering Defendant to cease certain harmful activities and the making of terroristic threats.” Chambers alleges that the harmful activities God could stop are “fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornados, pestilential plagues, ferocious famines, devastating droughts, genocidal wars, birth defects and the like.”

Chambers has represented Omaha, Nebraska, since 1970, and after nearly 40 years in office, it sounds like it’s time for the ancient Senator to move on. Although he probably does not expect the Defendant to respond (in a legal manner of speaking), he had better prepare to argue when when he actually does face the Defendant in court… the Defendant’s court.
