a sweet friend shared the following,
and i thought it
to share it with you as well.
i'm humbled by the words
of the Revelation passage,
in light of the current
martyrdom at this time,
and bowing low...
in His love,
"considering the state of the world...
pray for those being martyred..."
"When he opened the fifth seal,
I saw under the altar the souls
of those who had been slain
for the word of God
and for the witness they had borne.
They cried out with a loud voice,
"O Sovereign Lord, holy and true,
how long before you will judge
and avenge our blood
on those who dwell on the earth?"
Then they were each given a white robe
and told to rest a little longer,
until the number of their
fellow servants and their brothers
should be complete,
who were to be killed
as they themselves had been."
