  • Still struggling

    Ok ya'll are going to think I need to be heavily medicated or need a therapist. Well I do have a therapist. I am still struggling with all of this. I live in the Dallas area and on the way to work this morning I heard of tiny little earthquakes in the area. We don't have those here. So I am really upset today and I can't concentrate.

    Whoa, I saw that on Channel 11's news and was just stunned. You're right we don't get those around here. I live where Haltom City, Watauga, and Fort Worth all touch each other, and we didn't "feel" a thing here.

    Jesus said in Matthew 24 there will be "earthquakes in various places" and that these are the beginning of "birth pains". So if the little temblor that DFW had this morning is really a part of that, it just means that we're getting closer to Jesus coming. That's the key to having peace about this. You need to focus on Jesus' return, not the Tribulation. The Tribulation is not the end of the world - it's the beginning of the world. Hang in there, Sister.

      I am receptionist and I am supposed to be nice to everyone that calls or walks in the door and I am having a tough time with it. I mean I know there have always been earthquakes maybe my ears are just a little more on it because of all I am struggling with. I can't sleep, I barely eat, and I am just a real grouch so please pray for me.

        Consider yourself prayed for.

            I'm scared of earthquakes too. I've never felt one though (we've had a few supposedly but I never felt them). I'm praying for you too.

              If I was out your way, I'd be more concerned about hurricanes.

                Here is a seismic risk map of Texas I found:
                http://earthquake.usgs.gov/regional/...as/hazards.php

                As you can see, Dallas is fairly close to a "moderate" area over in Oklahoma.

                I live on the West Coast of BC where we are still awaiting the "Big One" which occur about every 200-300 years.
                Do not say, “Why were the old days better than these?” For it is not wise to ask such questions.
                Ecc 7:10

                John777 exists to me only in quoted form.

                  We've had our share. I'd much rather deal with a hurricane than an earthquake, though. I'm rather fond of the ground, and not fond of it shaking under me.

                    Got that right. Thankfully, though, I am upstate. I'm more scared of the tornadoes the storm brings with it.

                      Texasgirl...I just prayed for you.

                      Everyday I ask God to let me go throughout the day free of fear and full of peace and serenity.

                      He is very generous with that!

                        Now that's something that we Texans can definitely relate to.

                          I don't know if you'll see this before it's time for you to pack up and go home for the weekend, but how did the day go for you?

                            Hi Texasgirl,
                            Why are you struggling?
                            Why can't you sleep or eat properly?
                            Yes I will pray for you.

                            If any of these reasons are because of the earthquakes, why is it these earthquakes have put fear into your heart? That's is what it seems like to me and the word of God tells us we do not need to fear.
                            John 8:31-32



                            31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

                              Well, don't worry I understand how you feel, did you know Malaysia last time didn't feel any earthquake...after Dec 24 2006, the Tsunami hit one part Penang...we are worried...you all know or not, near my school government flats felt tremor are force to come out from the building...the record of earthquake is getting worse and worse...
