She was only 18 and she went missing. Along with so many others I prayed she would be found safe. Though I didn’t know her personally, her parents attended the university I once worked for. After many days, they found her remains buried in the desert. They have a suspect in custody. Why, Lord? It’s a fair question, as long as you realize God didn’t create robots. He created flesh and blood beings free to make choices, good or evil. Sex was created by God as a good gift, but for decades sex and sexual fantasies have been used to sell products. The old fashioned word chastity, for any reason, seems odd now. To think otherwise is not politically correct. Sexual promiscuousness is not new, of course, but now it’s acceptable, even preferable. The result is confusion, emotional pain and sexual abuse of all forms. Such horrifying news motivates me and I hope you to pray even more fervently for God’s Kingdom to fully come.
