Alice and I are spending our last day here in Fort Lauderdale today. Tomorrow morning we will go back down to Miami, turn in our rental car, and take a cab over to the port to board the MSC Armonia for our (now) week long cruise. We have done all that we can, having dealt with people from the cruise line and the booking agent all this past week trying to correct the problems caused by the line booking us into a cabin that had already been assigned to other people.
I am thankful that, as the apostle Paul wrote, we serve a God who is not a God of confusion, and I feel sorrow for those of the world around us who are controlled by the god of this world. Because, just as it says in Psalms 85:5, "They do not know nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness."
So it has been a real blessing this week that we have had the opportunity after opportunity to bring Jesus, the light and the truth, to so many people, sharing the peace, the love and the word of God into this situation.
"But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place." (2 Corinthians 2:14)
