My Resting Place~29 January 2015

This past week, Israel has once again seen violence and death. Two young men died when a Hezbollah cell launched six anti-tank missiles towards the convoy they were in. Three of the missiles hit the unarmored vehicles and one hit a house in the nearby village of Ghajar.
The first missile was a direct hit which instantly killed Captain Yohai Kalangel, 25, and Sergeant Dor Nini, 20. Two others vehicles were damaged, and seven additional soldiers were wounded in the attack. The UN has reported the death of a Spanish Peace Keeper that occurred during the shelling that took place in the aftermath.
During the first funeral this afternoon on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem, the father of Yohai Kalengel stated:
“Where you should have buried me, I bury you.”

There are no words to describe the pain of a parent who must bury a beloved child. There are no answers for the ongoing hatred. Israel, and the Jewish people as a whole are under attack~this is nothing new.

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done:
and there is no new thing under the sun…Ecclesiastes 1:9 (KJV)

Our only rest is in The Lord~He Alone Can Ease The Pain~We must Seek His Face…

Seek Thy Face
Seek Thy Face
Seek Thy Face
Our lives are but a hands breadth wide,
We live as like the morning mist
Then set the world aside.

Early shall I seek you Lord
And late upon my bed
No rest for me or comfort shall I find
A place to rest my head.

Seek Thy Face
Seek Thy Face

That Still Small Voice
Is calling me.
Every day and evening
The living way your showing me.

I Seek Thy Face
I Seek Thy Face

Do not be timid and don’t be shy
Look up and smile for He is Watching
My only answer

Here Am I
