“It was because of the Lord’s anger that all this happened to Jerusalem and Judah, and in the end he thrust them from his presence. Now Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon.”
Jeremiah 52:3 NIV.

For the past month I have been studying the book of Jeremiah. I have to tell you, it's been a little depressing. I can't help but see all the parallels to my own country. I am so saddened by the complete rejection of God. I just read a facebook post of 28 popular celebrities that are devout atheists. I was saddened to hear Amy Grant's theology. It doesn't much look like my own. Yes, I am saddened our country is turning away from God. We are rebelling just like Jerusalem. We have turned our backs on the creator of all things. I fear the punishment of the Lord for our blatant, unrepented sin. 

It's times like these we need to remain steadfast in the Lord. It's times like this we need to cling even tighter to our loving savior, lean on him, and trust in him. I praise God because he has promised to never forsake those that follow him. We need to focus on that Love while the world collapses all around us.
