Daily Devotional – 4/24/13 “What is going on?”

With husbands murdering wives, police taking lives, children being taken or running away, news not worth watching on any day, politicians lying, more kids dying, reality TV ratings being raised, cemetery expanding because they need more graves, terrorist attacks on the rise and they don’t even try to hide behind a disguise, weather acting crazy and more folks getting lazy, drugs being pushed into more veins and everyday our men are being slain. Parents are burying children when that’s not the way it should be but what are they to do when they’re in the streets because violence is all they see? Domestic abuse is more common in the house because men and women have stopped respecting their spouse. Folk would rather steal than get a job to make a living because they’d rather take than to be given. What is going on? What is really going on? Some say it’s the end of the world or we are living in the final days but does that give us the right to not heed to what God says? He said we should love one another, help those who have fallen and prop up those who lean and not act like hypocrites being messy with gossip or just being mean. What is going on? What is really going on? Where are the Christian, bible toting, prayer warriors who sometime sin yet they repent? Where are those who aren’t afraid of going where they are being sent? Where are the ones who don’t judge others because they sometimes make a mistake because they are on the same course as you, trying to get to Heaven’s gate? Where are those folk who don’t mind showing that they are on God’s side because they understand the sacrifice He made when His only Son died? What is going on in this world today? I’m just trying to understand. And please stop blaming the President because he is only one man. Try blaming the mess that you tune in to watch every day or blame those dang rappers, some you can’t even make out what they say. Blame the violent words that are being blasted in our children’s ears or the fact that sometimes things are just the way it is. Yea, you can raise children to do right or to say the right words but that doesn’t mean it’ll always happen like it did when they were small boys or girls. Things happen, most of the stuff we can’t control but don’t stop living, loving, making plans and setting and beating goals. I don’t know what’s going on but I’m trying to figure it out but in the meantime I’ll continue to do what I know to do and that’s simply not to doubt. Not to doubt God but to take Him at His word and be the best person I can be while living in this world! Yea, time is getting harder and harder to understand but I’ll continue to trust in the Man.
