As I watch events being played out across the world stage, particularly what appears to be the increasing marginalization of America and the daily ratcheting up of the outcry against Israel to make even more concessions to those who would destroy Her, I am left with an ever increasing sense that time is short. It is almost as if the "birth pains" are now increasing in intensity by the day.

As the world looks on with dismay and perplexity, we as Believers need to focus our attention more and more on the "author and finisher of our faith," the Word, and the need to take inventory of those things in our lives that may hinder us from "running the race that is set before us."

And as we focus our attention on those things that are above and not on the temporal, may our Yahweh instill in our hearts a sense of urgency to redeem the time, that we may serve Him boldly and that our lives may in every way glorify the King of Glory.

Update From Sderot 10/30/10

As I awoke early this morning, I got out of bed and went to the window. I stood there with a rare cool morning breeze upon my face. The morning sky was filled with clouds. As I stood there in the early morning silence I heard the words, “Baruch Ha’ Shem”; barely a whisper from my lips… almost as if no sound was made. It was raining. Baruch Ha’Shem!

The LORD continues to bless in regards to the shipped container for the “war boxes”. The financial cost of having a container sit in the port of entry while unforeseen details are taken care of can be outrageously high. Efforts to ask the right questions and seek advice have been met with positive response as Ha’Shem gives favor with those in the Port Authority office.

Elana, the new mommy of twin girls, is doing well as are the babies. The organization Be’ad Chaim has offered to come along side in the effort to help this family. Together we will be bringing a gift package of clothing, diapers, and formula to this new family.

Both Hope for Sderot and Hands of Mercy will be hosting volunteers this coming week. We lift them up in prayer and ask that their time with us will be fruitful and rich in blessings.

Shabbat Shalom
