I was hit with a double whammy this week. My mother and my favorite actor, Robin Williams, both died on the same day. Both of their lives were marked by the darkness of depression
The book of revelation says that in the last days, we will see "The Abomination of Desolation", standing in the holy place.
I believe that we can see it all around us now. The desolation that the Bible talks about, is the desolation of absolute despair and heartache, without a hope.
Judas Iscariot hung himself on a tree, because he realised that there was no hope of entering God's kingdom and I'm sure that it would have impacted the other disciples and they would have felt a little sad about it, after all, they had come to know him.
As we are called to be a "light unto the world", especially in these dark and desolate times, I am giving away the Kindle version of my book "TO BE: An Inspiration". For the next three days, it will be available to download for free from Amazon, at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ERBEXU6
I pray that it will help to bring a little light into your life and that you will be encouraged to seek out God within yourself all the more.
