I cried today for the world where the norm is to beat women, to abuse children, to rape, to murder, and to sin.
I cried today for the world where compassion is forgotten. Love is used as a weapon. Power is used to control instead of help.
I cried today for the world where people talk about abuse and do nothing about it. I cried today because children are going hungry.
I cried today for the world where self is more important than others.
I cried today for the world where alcohol and drugs are used as an escape to a pain that only God can heal.
I cried today for the world where God is Forgotten.
I cried for you today.
I asked today when will this wickedness end?
When will eternity begin?
I was reminded today of who/what God is.
A God who is slow to anger, abound in love and faithfulness,
Loving to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion, and sin.
Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished. (Exodus 34:6-7)
I was given hope for the world with kindness, laughter, love, and grace.
I was given God’s answer. Soon the day will come when none of this world’s hurt will matter.
I was given this: three things will remain faith, hope, and love and Love is the greatest of these. (1 Cor. 13:13)
I was given God’s Love.
I was given God’s peace.
I was given God’s compassion.
I was given God’s mercy.
I was given God’s Son for this wicked world to show me the way into eternity.
I was given a strength that only God can give.
I will not give up on this world and say to hell with it. God hasn’t yet.
