Thoughts for troubled times - 1

There are many things happening in our world
to give us pause for thought
environment and sustainability
surfeit and hunger
consumerism and financial security
individualism and community
war and peace.
While the problems abroad in the world may be new to this generation, the nations and peoples of the world have been troubled before. And, if the Lord tarries in His coming, such troubles may come again.
In this light, I thought it might be time to go back to another troublesome period in history, and look to some of the words of that period. So, beginning with this post, we will pay some brief visits to the words of Jeremiah. I hope these words can be taken to your heart, store there, reflected on, and perhaps they - in turn - will lead to further reading and reflection. Indeed, these are meant to be thoughts for The Journey.
".......I am watching over my word to perform it"
God's words to Jeremiah as a young man
Reported in The Book of Jeremiah 1: 11
