I don't think many of us can really express our feelings right now about our country. This has been a sad and disturbing week that seems very dark. I love this verse and it is helping me to get my thoughts together on this Sunday morning. I have reasons to rejoice and am so thankful I have the Lord in my life. This world is not my home and I know I am just passing through. But as I am on that journey, I know the Lord expects me to be a loving person, to do His work whenever I can, to trust Him and to know that even when this world seems so crazy, He is in control and there is a plan.
The other part of this verse that I like is to pray without ceasing...pray WITHOUT CEASING! Not just in the morning or at church or at bible study, but all day. So, that is what I am going to work on this upcoming week.
