Oh come, Lord Jesus, comfort and heal those in Las Vegas; come, Holy Spirit, convict the lost of Truth; assure us, Father, in the midst of our fears & woundedness.

From a pastor/brother in Gulf Breeze Fl... and the Apostle Paul:
All creation groans in pain.
And not just creation.
Together we all groan. With an unfathomable grief.
Waiting. Eagerly.
Redemption. 
Not yet.
But sure. (J. Becker)
“For I consider
that the sufferings of this present time
are not worth comparing
with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
For the creation waits
with eager longing
for the revealing of the sons of God.
For the creation
was subjected to futility,
not willingly,
but because of him who subjected it,
in hope that the creation itself
will be set free
from its bondage to corruption
and obtain the freedom
of the glory of the children of God.
For we know that
the whole creation
has been groaning together
in the pains of childbirth until now.
And not only the creation,
but we ourselves,
who have the firstfruits of the Spirit,
groan inwardly
as we wait eagerly
for adoption as sons,
the redemption of our bodies.
For in this hope we were saved.
Now hope that is seen is not hope.
For who hopes for what he sees?
But if we hope for what we do not see,
we wait for it with patience.”
Romans 8:18-25 (to us from God thru Paul)
