I am so saddened at what is happening in our beautiful country right now. It is so evil, so dark. Most of the time I try to live in my own little sheltered world. I stay daydreaming, picturing a world I want to live in. I don’t live in reality. Reality is too painful.
I don’t watch or read the news. My heart can’t take it. I prefer to stay ignorant not because I don’t care but because I do and can do nothing to help.
Now that I am seeing what is going on it makes me want to put on war paint and start a revolution! A love revolution! I want to stand up to this evil. I want to protect the rights of the innocent. I want to fight the injustices!
This is not OK...
I know people are saying stop complaining or focusing on the negative. Look to the good etc . I’m always that person. I turn a blind eye and carry on with my cushy little life. But People are being burned alive in the streets in the current xenophobic attacks. It is not being negative, it is standing up for those who don’t have a voice! Itis bringing attention to the Femicide and Violence that is so prevalent in our nation so that it can be stopped! I’m not trying to be negative at all but this stuff is happening and we can not ignore it!
❤️We do have to look for the beauty in the mess as a friend of mine says. We just have to remember none of us is good but for God. Not one. Yet he makes us righteous. It’s a balance. We walk a tight rope between worlds. We have to have to Focus on God.
But what can we do?
1. Pray! our God is powerful and with him comes a mighty army!
2. Make a stand where you are. Do not stay silent. Protect those you can. help those in need.
3 LOVE. Show love to the people in your life.show it in kind words, in serving and in generosity. Fight this disease of evil with the cure of love!
4. Make sure you are right with God. Be ready for anything.
Peace out✌️ .
“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,”
2 Timothy 3:1-4 ESV
