I want to become an ostrich, plunge my head into the sand and pretend all the mess in our world would go away, and some semblance of right would make a come back.
But I can’t, my neck isn’t long enough!
I don’t want to see another person abused, another person mistreated or one more person killed.
I want to see prejudice eradicated.
I want to see love overcome evil.
The news and social media seem to be filled with yet another tragedy. It completely makes me Weary by Wednesday!
About the time I’m ready for that mouthful of sand, I remember there is hope.
I’m reminded that no matter what, I can love and show grace to all…everyone, no matter who they are.
I can pray, assured that the One who has stood firm until now, still stands firm and will bring all this evil to rest.
The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty;
the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength;
indeed, the world is established, firm and secure.
Your throne was established long ago;
you are from all eternity.
The seas have lifted up, Lord,
the seas have lifted up their voice;
the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.
Mightier than the thunder of the great waters,
mightier than the breakers of the
the Lord on high is mighty.
Your statutes, Lord, stand firm;
holiness adorns your house
for endless days.
He stands firm, no matter what.
Thank you Father for being unshakable!
What is causing you to want to stick your head in the sand this week? How is the Lord helping you through it?
Thank you for sharing your Wednesday with me.
