Thank God that what we go through isn’t nearly half as horrific as what Christ went through FOR US. He endured storms so that we may live. I’ve seen so many negative commentary on how people are acting / reacting to this natural devastation and I just want to remind everyone that we are ALL human and therefore susceptible to sin. While many are judging others(sin), let’s not forget the biggest lessons about “judgement”.
Jesus said, “For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.” (Matthew 7:2 NLT) “They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”” (John 8:7 NLT)
We are all human so we all fall short of God’s glory! Let us not judge another person for their actions; instead pray for everything. Keep God first, NOT man! Place God on a pedestal, NOT man! Man IS flawed & WILL ALWAYS disappoint you. GOD DOESN’T DISAPPOINT!!!
Tragedies, trials, storms come for a reason. The reason is for us to turn to God! Troubles don’t last always and neither do life’s storms. They all have a season. So in tragic times, instead of judging or turning against one another, let us all COME TOGETHER as ONE NATION UNDER GOD and pray!
To me, that doesn’t mean one nation as in region. It means one nation as in one people that bleed the same color blood and that all benefited from the sacrifice / crucifixion of Jesus Christ. We are all God’s children. He loves us all equally no matter race, gender, finances, nationality, etc. Wake up people & turn to God instead of man.
How wonderful it is to know that God loves us in spite of our flaws. How wonderful it is to know that each day holds a possibility of a miracle. How wonderful it is to know that Christ suffered more than we could ever endure just for us to be saved. Put your trust in God and not in man.
Let’s come together as a nation and help one another in times of need. Let’s continue to pray for one another, keep positive energy & faith going. Do what you can do, be accountable for yourself & your actions. Pray instead of judging.
I pray for all of us during these troubled times. I pray that God’s will be done in cloaking us in His grace and love by bringing us all together under His umbrella. In Jesus name Amen.
Sincerely with love,
