As a society we are completely broken. Like a piece of shattered glass- fear, division, injustice, lack of compassion, pride, ignorance, and selfish motives have left us…broken in our wrongness. My heart breaks for everyone who suffers in injustice, whatever form it has come to them. God does not look away from those that cry out to him, the needy, orphaned, widowed, trafficked, abused, wrongly accused, murdered… so neither should we his children. In our heartache we must decide to do everything we can, to pursue all that is right, and to defend those that may be powerless against the dark powers of injustice. We need fearless men and women of honor, integrity, and compassion to rise up and become the leaders and power holders within our community, nation, and world. We need to care more about what actually matters and less about the empty things we try to fill our lives with. We need more unity and less division, more hope and less fear, more love and compassion and less hate. If we want to see change happen, we need to first change ourselves. I would love to see our society come together to resolve it’s issues instead of fighting, dividing, and drowning in fear, violence, and hate. I will do my part, however I can, with all the love I can to make our world better and right…I will also try to make the future brighter by teaching my daughters and sons to love God and follow his command to love their neighbors to the extent of loving their enemies as well. I will teach them to respect everyone and to do their best to remain humble before others and God. Lastly I will teach them that love conquers fear every time and we need to use that love to serve and protect others. We have the ability to make it right,to pursue all that is just, and to unite and fight together instead of against each other. We also have the power to lead our children to make right choices for their families, communities, and their world. The choice is ours, will we allow ourselves to live in love and be moved in love on behalf of others so they may live…
He leads us to places we can’t see. Beside us, along the winding path, He is our guide.
Even though there is mystery in the plan, our dreams and our life surrendered, we’re safe in His hands.
Quieting our spirit, we remain in His love.
Resting our hearts in His, we keep our eyes fixed above…
To the heavenly throne and a heavenly home, where He sees and establishes all that will be.
Because of His salvation our spirit remains secure. With hope, every step we walk, we walk sure.
Confident of His love in this place, living for all that endures and what will remain.
Letting it all go, following the One who knows… our path, His plans, and the way our unknown journey goes.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all of your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. -Proverbs 3:5&6
