Travel in the Face of Terrorists

I'm boarding an airplane to travel to Korea this coming Tuesday. I feel excited as well as somewhat strange. Just this week, the media reported a lapse in the local airport security. Someone was able to enter and assemble a bomb inside the airplane. He didn't push the button. But he was able to get away with it, undetected! Honestly, I wonder, of all times, this has to be the occasion for me to board a plane!

These past few weeks, there's heightened security preparation all over the world against recently renewed terrorist threats. After the 9/11 airplane tragedy where over 3,000 innocent men, women, and children as well as internationals from 80 different countries were slaughtered, the world has been on the alert. There is a global war going on. And like many others, I wonder when the war will end.

As a Christian, my response to terrorism is, "Have Faith in God" (Mark 11:22). My purpose in life is to trust God. "But without Faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6).

All the commotions in the world should only serve to confirm my confidence in the LORD as my Refuge, Strength, and Present Help in trouble. "God is our Refuge and Strength, a very Present Help in trouble. Therefore I will NOT we fear, though the Earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah" (Psalm 46:1-3).

I don't mean to imagine things. But in case something bad happens and God allows it, I'd be thankful to God. I say this because I know that the life He lent me on this earth has significance. More times I can count, He also gave me good memories of love and fun with my wife Imelda and kids Christine, Paul, and Angel.
Especially my wife Imelda, who shared both my joys and pains. She's God's gift to me to be my companion in the journey, even well beyond earthly existence.

I'm naturally not interested in war, because I have a family. We want to live. And continue serving the Lord in peace. But so long as there is a danger called terrorism we'll continue to protect ourselves. Of course, our life is in His hands. The way of faith is always the best way to remove the fear and danger from the terrorism in our world.
