Is This the End?

WHat are we to make of the headlines?…
Rumors of earthquakes. Rumors of wars.
Rumors of famines and crises galore.
Rumors of Christians imprisoned and killed.
Rumors of truth taken hostage and stilled.
Alas, they're not rumors. It's what's going on.
It's what was predicted before time is gone.
The state of our union, the state of our world,
is frenzied and frazzled. Our globe is unfurled.
Our cosmos collapses. The moon turns to blood.
We're bankrupt of feeling. We're drowned by the flood.
Is this Armageddon? Is the end now in sight?
Dear God, help us trust You as day turns to night.
