Read a great post this morning. Sometimes just watching the news is overwhelming. There is so much hate. It feels like a “hate snowball” going downhill.
How do you react?
Tiffany shares with us :
“I begin my day with prayer, not knowing how to pray. My heart churns with the overwhelming tide of global unrest, seeking a stabilizing point on which I can plant my feet.”
Here is her post :
Overcoming Evil – http://wp.me/p47uuH-pG
Are we supposed to just sit by and watch? Or are we called to do something more?
But what can I do? The overwhelming nature of the problems tempts me to a victim’s mentality of helplessness. But the all-powerful nature of God calls me to an overcomer’s mentality of proactive love.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:21)
Thanks Tiffany. I needed a plan of how to deal with all this stuff. You have called us out of our comfort zone, and into the ProActive stance of standing up to the evil. Let us love one another as Christ has loved us. Let us stand and kneel in prayer together. There is good and there is evil. God calls us to stand with the Good . Wrong is wrong. God knows and God sees. Let us shine as lights in the darkness in this wicked time, in Jesus Name.
