Earlier today I posted the following to my Facebook feed; perhaps exposure here will land on a couple more screens. 🙂
Today. August 1.
Often I look at this world and the people in it beginning with family and friends and I feel overwhelmed. Overwhelmed with the needs, the loss, the lack, the too much, the illness, the disease, death, and life, too often just utter chaos swirling around many. And I would despair was it not for our GOD.
PSALM 27:13 I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. 14 Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. source
And so I pray. What can I do for my world of people? How can I encourage them? How can I help them love You first? How can I help them yield to You? How can I help them live holy? How can I help them embrace their potential in this world and Your Eternity?
And then I know the first step is to yield myself in all these things.
