Tragedy has struck… again. Full of sorrow, pain, questions, and anger. Minds racing a mile a minute, we just don’t know what to do. We feel trapped and confused. But let us not forget Who has always rescued us. Who has always delighted us. Given us shelter. We do not now have to carry this alone. God will be out stronghold.
He hears our cries and He weeps with us.
“The world is not as it should be. Not everything that happens is God’s will. There is also His enemy.”
Remember that. & take comfort in His words & promises. Band together, as children of The Lord and rebuild what has been torn down; remember what has been lost; fight for a better day.
Matthew 16:19 – “I will give you the keys of the #kingdom of heaven…” Christ speaks of keys in a means of abilities to open and explain the Gospel truths, and a mission and commission from Him to make use of them.
How are you making use of them? Have you strived to take this mission and love out the Gospel in a way that brings glory and light to it?
It is truly a beautiful day here at Olivet Nazarene University.
I will be the first to admit that this was and still is not my first choice.
I’ll also admit that I tend to have a negative outlook on this school.
I commute. I drive to class on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Go to class. Go home.
I tend to nit-pick the teachers and criticize the way things are ran.
I keep to myself and avoid others.
It’s hard to see the awesome and the good in life when our nation has had this kind of week.
Seems like every day we wake up to more bad news.
A new tragedy or trauma.
As if it just keeps piling on and boiling over.
How much more can we take?
Whether it affects us personally or not, it’s still hard to swallow.
It’s dark, and dim.
Cold, and hollow.
