What I Believe
QUOTE OF THE WEEK

Conscience is something, in a sense, apart from man. It has been put in him by God; it is a reminder of the voice of God within him, an inward monitor, and a man cannot really manipulate his conscience. He can go against it, but that is not manipulating it. It is possible, as this Apostle says again in writing to Timothy, for the conscience to be seared “with a hot iron”. But nevertheless it is true to say that the conscience is an independent witness.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones (God’s Sovereign Purpose)

Oblivious

“God speaks to me not through the thunder and the earthquake, nor through the ocean and the stars, but through the Son of Man, and speaks in a language adapted to my imperfect sight and hearing.” 

William Lyon Phelps

 It's a good thing that I need not attend to the voice of the earthquake in order to hear from God because I slept through our earthquake last night.  I would like to have been awake, though.  I've experienced several small earthquakes in my life and they are awe inspiring.

Did any of you feel this morning's earthquake in the Midwest? 

The quake occurred in the Illinois basin-Ozark dome region that covers parts of Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas and stretches from Indianapolis and St. Louis to Memphis, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The organization's Web site said earthquakes occur irregularly in the area, and that the largest historical earthquake in the region -- also a magnitude 5.4 -- caused damage in southern Illinois in 1968.

I heard about it this morning and was wondering if you felt anything :)

The epicenter was just a few miles from my hometown, where much of my family still lives. They certainly felt it. When I woke up this morning, the emails had been flying since the quake.

We're south of St. Louis. It woke my husband and me up, and we knew it was an earthquake, but I didn't feel compelled to get up and check on anything.

There was another one at 10:15 that I certainly felt, too. It was a 4.5.

The 1968 quake occurred on a day my father left his old company to start his own company. The family joke is that he knew it would shake them up when he left, but he didn't think they'd take it that far. BaDumBah.

Don't feel bad. I slept right through it too. :)

It woke us up (much to our annoyance) but we had no idea what it was.

My dad in Chattanooga, TN, said he felt it--just the bed slightly shaking. So he got up and looked outside their 12 story building and realized the whole thing was shaking. No damage, just a memory.
