The Light in the Darkness

What do you say when the nation seems to be falling apart and you don't have the answers? There's so much to say, but yet, where do you even begin and what is right? If we believe fully the picture the media is painting or if we make assumptions when we don't know what really happened or if we let emotions override facts, and if we speak out, are we even saying the right thing or are we just adding fuel to the fire? Are we strengthening those walls when they should be torn down?

After everything that has happened in our country and in the state I grew up in, my heart is hurting. When does it end? When do we start doing what's right? When do we start working as a team to build each other up instead of tear each other down? When do we start recognizing who the real enemy is?

The enemy wants chaos. It wants uproar. It wants hatred to thrive. It wants segregation and division. It wants to shatter hearts. It wants to tear apart marriages. It wants us to fail. It wants us to sabotage our future. It wants us to deny God and live only for ourselves. It wants us to fall.

Who's going to start making Satan fall flat on his face for the mess he's caused? That's our job. If we do nothing, if we let him build walls and fuel the fear, if we don't work as a team in our own nation or in our own neighborhoods, how are we ever going to live the life God intended for us to live?

It's not always an easy road, but following God and trusting in Him every single day, even when times are tough, is a huge step in the right direction. It's ok to have a relationship with Him. He wants us to talk to Him. He is FOR us. If we will follow God with all our heart and teach our families to do the same, we can be the light that shines bright. Be the light that brightens someone's day. Be the change you want to see in your neighborhood. Spread the light.
