As I was sitting here on my computer tonight I felt this sadness I have known for years. I don’t know why it’s there or when it started. Part of the reason I think is from all of the things that are happening in the world. Every single day the only thing you see on the news is man died from… bombing… attack on…. man arrested… and your just like when is this going to END??!?! I find myself often thinking about these things all of the time just like another issue… great I can’t do anything about it. These things just pop up all of the time and you wonder what am I doing? Like seriously what is going ON? I find that now in my life I feel like I am just wondering here and I have no purpose and I hear about these things day after day then it just becomes normal and you just try to ignore it and just glide on with life. It’s like we just ignore these things and we just push them back not realizing the reality. What about once it gets to us here? Europe is already having lots of problems with the refugees coming over. What’s going to happen here once we bring people in? Same thing? Worse? Nothing? Is life just going to continue gliding along and we aren’t going to do nothing? Continue saying “This is just life we can’t do anything about it.”
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
All of these verses have put thoughts and questions and answers into my mind. I am trying to make these verses true in myself. So that I am aware of what is going on and that I can do something about it but also I can do this without being worried or scared. I would encourage many of you to do this as well. No matter where you may be. Canada, USA, Europe, Russia, Asia, anywhere you may be. If you are in the midst of this as well I would encourage you to stay strong and know that you Are Not Alone. I have a song that I would encourage you to listen you as well.
