Our world changed very fast in the last two years. I believe it’s slowly been edging towards this for a long time, but once it came together, wow…life as we knew it was gone. Shattered, dismantled, broken.
How have we held up mentally, emotionally, and spiritually? The world, the WHOLE world, changed so quickly. Were we able to keep up? Suicide and depression, along with drug overdoses are at an all-time high. I know I’ve had a harder time with focus and direction.
Life is pretty confusing right now. Actually, it’s infuriating when you think of the inconsistencies and hypocrisy of the elite over the last two years that have ruined and destroyed the lives of so many. Not one of us has come out unscathed. All of this is under the guise of control. And sadly, it’s not over.
But regardless, God is still the One and Only in control. And in Him we need to seek wisdom, strength, and refuge.
1 O LORD, I call upon you; hasten to me! Give ear to my voice when I call to you!
2 Let my prayer be counted as incense before you, and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice!
3 Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!
4 Do not let my heart incline to any evil, to busy myself with wicked deeds
in company with men who work iniquity, and let me not eat of their delicacies!
5 Let a righteous man strike me—it is a kindness; let him rebuke me—it is oil for my head; let my head not refuse it. Yet my prayer is continually against their evil deeds.
6 When their judges are thrown over the cliff, then they shall hear my words, for they are pleasant.
7 As when one plows and breaks up the earth, so shall our bones be scattered at the mouth of Sheol.
8 But my eyes are toward you, O GOD, my Lord; In you I seek refuge; leave me not defenseless!
9 Keep me from the trap that they have laid for me and from the snares of evildoers!
10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by safely.
It might be difficult to stay focused on spiritual things when our physical lives are attacked daily from multiple angles and forces. Yet, we need to do our best to stay grounded in God. He is our refuge. He is our comfort. Gather with like-minded people to pull positive strength from each other. Praise God that He reigns above all powers on this earth and be grateful that He loves us. ♥️
