Anguished family members who are tormented by the unknown are photographed and their pictures remind us that this is a mystery that is not a movie or book, but involves real lives.
What does this mystery tell us about our world?
1. It is dangerous. There are accidents, attacks and injustices every day.
2. It is connected. The world is watching this drama unfold. A variety of countries are mobilizing military, professional and amateur search and rescue efforts.
3. It is compassionate. People are moved with compassion to help in big and small ways. Some ways are directed in the search efforts and some are directed towards those waiting to hear word of their loved ones who are missing.
4. It is critical. Frustration over information that lacks accuracy or timeliness results in anger from one agency or country to another.
My prayer is that the LORD would reveal the whereabouts of missing Flight 370 and every passenger would be rescued.
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
