I saw this post (while procrastinating about writing on my book) my heart was crushed as tears formed at the thought of who would do such a thing and why, rushed in. While we enjoyed the fruits of the eighties and now that the trees are bare and the consequences of our neglect of family, friends and the Savior are coming into fruition, it has caused us as a people to argue over the root cause of these disastrous times.
We argue over why the police kill, religion and the source of religion, religion vs. spirituality, how to eat healthier at McDonald’s, did the government kill Martin Luther King, did God allow Hitler to kill the Jews because of their beliefs regarding God, to tithe or not to tithe. Some of us have still not come to the place where we can totally accept and follow the One who knows all, sees, all and hears all. Interrupted by the constant ringtone of yet another post on Facebook, or the Twitter tweets and other social media platforms; we have begun an endless cycle of refusal to heed the calling of a much higher Authority than social media. While we argue about this and that, there is one who is reaping the fruits of our inability to “learn his ways” and the fruits of his labor are working in overtime mode.
There is a place where only true peace resides; where the killing of young black men and women, the rage of the lions in Washington, DC, the need to draw a line in the sand of religious differences has no relevance. A place where one can make sense of tragedy or at least come to terms with it, a place where self-reliance has no value. There is a place here on earth, that when tapped into will answer all questions, straighten every crooked line, lower what seems like an immovable mountain, and raise the valleys for easier passing. I know, I know, it sounds like something you heard in a church or a line in a sermon or even in a Book you may have read, but the reality is, it’s true.
I don’t know who glued the baby’s lips shut or why, but I know the source from which it came and I know a Greater source that take care of it, there are always consequences…
Of David. Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. …
