Anyway, around June, I got curious why my hubby's aunt and their family doctor's priest thought that Sept 23 is the end of the world. I googled "September 2015" and was amazed at the results~ there were a LOT of websites prophesying the end of the world in Sept 2015! The first website I clicked was September2015.com and until now, it remains a favorite of mine (go visit it!). The author, Phil Richardson, painstakingly studied for over 3 years the Book of Daniel which has more concise prophecies about the end-times than Revelation. I was hooked! That week, for the first time in ?? years, I opened my cute Dreamsicle Bible and read it.
While I was pondering this conundrum, July came and wham! The worst week ever of my life! And you know what's the only thing that kept me afloat through it and the next few weeks? My faith in God. Yes, my faith was restored in a very painful way! But it was purifying as well, praise God! Sometimes I can't help but think what if I wasn't studying God's words prior July? Would I have clung to Him in my darkest hour or blame and forsake Him? Truly, God works in mysterious ways, and I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason~ no matter how painful. The thing is, God has a plan for each one of us, and all we have to do is follow it and HAVE FAITH that it's for our best! :)
