Whew. Our world, society, and the issues around us have me spinning. Until a few days ago really trying to grasp on to something steady.
My little world is most certainly being effected. I'm seeing family members of my blood relatives and my Christian family standing on opposing sides. Both sides making valid points. Our media fueling the tearing down of any unity we have. Red, yellow, black, white, blue.... Hilary or Trump.
Frankly it is too much. In my own personal opinion Facebook is becoming a breading ground for hurt, disapointment, and anger. A place where we can freely feel brave behind a computer and bash something or somebody without thought of "I'm going to see this person face to face tomorrow"
The hypocrisy of our leaders or future leaders makes me sick.
What can I do? I'm a Geargia preach that is now an East Tennessean. A SAHM. No political background. No platform (so to speak).
But I have this blog, I have my faith.
To be completely honest with you this world scares me. The fear of no control to stop this world becoming darker and darker. Less morals. Less respect.
Those feelings could overwhelm me, you, anyone...
I serve a great big God! A God who is greater than any election.
I serve a God who raises people from the dead. A God who heals. A God who opens wombs. A God who promises me hope and an eternal life with him.
A God who is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Nothing comes as a surprise to God.
I know I can rest in him!
No matter the circumstance, and I have faced some dark times, his words ring true in my heart
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. -1 John 4:4
The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom shall I be afraid? - Psalms 27:1
Rest easy my friends! God has got us!
And above all remember what the word says
Love God with all your heart, strength, mind, and soul. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. (Luke 10:27)
