“Sign” of the Times


You get up after hitting the snooze button 3 times (because everyone needs that extra 21 minutes to wake up, LOL), slip on the house shoes and a coat to get your morning paper.  While stirring your mandatory cup of coffee, you turn to the horoscopes; only to find out that you are not a Libra anymore!


That’s right! If you haven’t heard by now, astrological signs are about a month off.  Due to a wobble in the earth’s axis, according to astrologers, the sun is now in a different constellation that points in another direction. This shift has totally disrupted the charts. To add insult to stupidity, there is a 13th sign added, Ophiuchus. This “new” constellation is represented by a man wrestling a snake. So once again I say, WHAT THE DEVIL?!

For centuries people have made major, life altering decisions based on the charting of the stars, and how these heavenly bodies align themselves. My question is, how long have the stars been out of sync? When did anyone discover the change? And most of all, who decided that these changes had to be made? (I know that was 3 questions, but you get my point!)

I believe that the moral of this story is … wait for it … we can’t trust the things of this world. If God is real, and He is, he has given you a very clear blueprint for your life, everyday: Trust in the LORD with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know.  Remember the LORD in everything you do, and he will show you the right way.” (Proverbs 3:5-6, Today’s English Version).

I hear you asking : How can I trust God? How can I be sure? And the answer is simply to use the same faith you put in the stars. At least with Him there is a plan. Listen to what he says in Jeremiah  29:11-14 :

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”  (New International Version)

So know that in HIM, your future is great, because no matter what your sign is, the “SON” is never out of place!
