This world is moving faster and faster, day by day. Every time you turn on the news, or read a newspaper, there is always some tragedy taking place around our world. We never know what to expect as we hold our breath daily, praying for good news.
Wars and rumors of wars have plagued our existence since the beginning of time. Climate change talks with promises but no real solutions. Cancer, diabetes and other diseases kills people daily. Mass shootings are becoming the norm and threaten stability in our nation. Terrorism keeps us in a state of fear. Now on our home soil, gun violence destroys innocent lives and their families for years to come.
In this time and in periods of stress, one must exercise caution. God did say in the Word that, “there will be trials and tribulation.” Life can be a struggle, however, we must strive to move forward in spite of daily negative events. We must stand firm and trust God to assist us through these turbulent times. Pray for those who are suffering.
In conclusion: “Trust in the lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him that he may direct your path.”
