It’s An Insane World We Live In
The hearts of the sons of men are full of evil, and insanity is in their hearts throughout their lives. (Eccl. 9:3)
Last Sunday brought another mass shooting, this time in a small church in a tiny town in Texas. I heard on the news that the death toll equaled 7% of the population of the town. Our hearts cry, How can someone do that, Lord? But we know how. We know that, until Jesus returns in His glory, evil still roams this earth, taking down those it can, causing havoc wherever it might.
These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)
And So We Are Thankful
It would be so easy to become bogged down in the sorrows of this world. But Jesus has overcome the world. As people who follow Christ, we are called to something better. We are called to live lives full of hope and joy. We are called to be light and to serve others. We are called to persevere in the midst of tribulation. We are called to be thankful in all circumstances.
For those of you who accepted my Gratitude Challenge for the month of November, I hope the month is off to a great start. Below I’m sharing my gratitude journal entries for days 1-5 and one of my Bible entries as well.
Praise God from Whom all blessings flow.
