Earthquakes occur every day somewhere in the world. Yesterday there were 86 . . . and
624 earthquakes in the past 7 days,
2,970 earthquakes in the past month,
43,584 earthquakes in the past year.
In like manner, our world is sometimes shaken by earthquakes of the soul. A serious illness, the loss of a loved one, a shattered career, the betrayal of a friend. Our mountains sometimes shake and we are left with a life in shambles.
Yet there is always hope. We can take heart in the promise of scripture.
“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken, nor will my covenant of peace be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” – Isaiah 54:10
