I have been in a fragile state of mind of late. When they announced on the news that we sent missiles to Libya yesterday, all I could do was cry. All I could think was "another war" to send our innocent young citizens to and to have it change their lives forever.
I know God is in this, and I know He is allowing it. I know we all have to trust in God's purpose. I'm scared. I'm praying for God to take away my fear and replace it with calm, peace of mind, even Joy. I have to trust Him and His word, for without it, I have nothing.
We will never escape war, as much as I wish that was true. Our parents had to deal with it, as did their parents and so on. But will we ever really understand the full reason for war? Does it really just come down to "power"? And how do these leaders become so charismatic that they can get so many followers, even over God?
Of course, we see that in churches, too. Even movie stars, sports figures, and other big talent. People worship them! Shame on us. We have to recognize there is only one God and worship that one God. We all become guilty at one time or another, but we do need to be more aware of what we're doing. Who are we giving all of our power to?
Until next time,
Keep it from the heart,
