Will You Still Love Him?

I preached, Sunday on the subject of September 11th. It is a bittersweet topic as I am a New Yorker by birth and even though I have lived away for decades, like so many others, I never left in my heart.

My Scripture was from Jeremiah...

Jeremiah 29: 11-13
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

...and my point was that even though the worst thing seemed to happen September 11th...

even though the world caved in on so many...

even though Taliban made indiscriminate war against innocent men, women and children...

even though America was hurt very badly...

even though the towers in your life sometimes collapse

and things seem to turn against you at every turn.

Even though you hurt so much you think it will surely kill you and hope that happens soon...

Will You Still Love Jesus Christ?

I cry every time I see the film of the towers coming down.

I cry when I hear the voice mail recordings of those poor souls who had a chance to call home and say I love you and be happy.

My tears would make a river but even so, I still love Him. I serve only Him. The intention of my life is to be worthy of being His child.

Will You Still Love Him????


  1. He will still love me.

    I love that quote.

  2. I will, because he still loves me.

    There is a quote I love from the movie, Love Comes Softly. It says: "The truth of God's love is not that he allows bad things to happen. It's His promise that he'll be there with us when they do."

  3. Yes, because He is sovereign. And because He is ever faithful. Thank you for this post!
