Hype, Hype, and More Hype!

I sometimes wonder if I am the only one who is growing weary of the hype the media is always offering up. Flooding rains bring havoc and destruction . . . they are labeled "historic." A snow storm dumps piles of snow . . . it gets tagged as "Snowageddon." One news event brings about a situation "never seen before." And on and on and on it goes (ad infinitum ... and ad nauseu if you ask me!).

I am reminded of some words from the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes. In chapter one and verse nine we read, "What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun." All that we experience today ... in some form ... has been experienced before. People have populated this planet for many millennium. Flooding rains and tragic deaths are nothing new. So beware of the hype that is thrown your way!

But there is no hype when it comes to the God who designed and created this universe. He is the same God today as he was at the dawn of history. He was great and he was good then ... and he is great and good now.

So in the midst of all the media hype ... keep your hands firmly gripping the reality that the awesome Creator God is always with us ... and that is no hype!

Thanks for stopping by . . .

Are You Preparing for Eternity?

Our journey on earth is but a breath ... a heart beat when compared to the expanse of Eternity. We all must remember that how we live live in the here and now will impact our experience in the then and there.

Thoughts on how biblical truth impacts all of life.
