When one listens to the news on the radio or TV or reads it on line or in the newspaper it doesn't take long before you hear news that is less than good. Some days that is all you ever get. Another violent storm, and earthquake, flooding, drought, war, someone goes off their rocker and starts shooting away, a mother drives into a river, the economy is going down hill, morality is going down hill, prices are going up, up, up. but there is hope. Someday int he future God will remove this corrupted world and replace it with something new - that is His promise.
2 Peter 3:13 - But God made a promise to us, and we are waiting for a new heaven and a new earth where goodness lives. (NCV)
