My friends, I have realized that I simply cannot care about everything and everyone in the world. It’s not that I don’t care, but I can’t. My heart can’t handle any more.
Believe me, I wish I had tons of money, effort, and thought to give in every direction because all of the things that have popped up this week. Not this year, this WEEK, and my heart’s heaviness shows it.
Sex trafficking and prostitution of the innocent. Children in horrific conditions. Homeless and helpless people on the street. Pesticides and herbicides showing up in our food supply. Mandated mask-wearing and personal freedom. Churches submitting to leaders but also called to be light in dark places. Riots for injustice done. Political abuse of power. Statistics and numbers constantly changing, being questioned, and changed again. Selfishness, fear, and greed taking over common sense.
I see all these hard things and I wonder…now what? What do I do, knowing what I know, knowing who I am and what I am capable of? I’ve been genuinely asking this question for months now. I’ve heard no good answer other than to pray.
Pray for truth to win out over lies.
Pray for peace and hope to overthrow horror and fear.
Pray for the Light to break through the darkness that we find ourselves in.
Pray for strength to carry a burden for others who cannot carry their own.
Pray for our leaders. Just pray for them.
Pray for humility when faced with anger and fear.
Pray for grace to fill the church and for us to be an example to those who do not believe.
Pray for wisdom to know when to speak and when to stay silent.
Pray to know when to sit and when to stand.
Pray to find Truth and to know Him well.
Pray. Then act on the things you can.
