Like the song says, give us clean hands, give us pure hearts, and let us be a generation that seeks Him above all else.
Can we go back to reading the bible and turn off the media? We weren’t getting the answers from them anyways.
Your story may be the very thing that helps someone realize that where they are is not where they will end up.
So today, I ask you to make the memories. Do the mundane things that seem pointless and unrewarding. Keep the traditions. Take the pictures.
I know the end of the story. And it’s beautiful.
In other words, the more room I make for Him, the more I crowd out the enemy.
Jesus died on that cross, knowing that one day, we would be here. That we would still sin.
Maybe this week, even if you don’t have a TV, you could find an inspiring playlist. And in those times where you are tempted to tune out the world, you could instead turn in to God. He’s the only one who can truly offer us that peace we’re seeking anyways.
That little nudge is a chance. It’s a gift that He’s giving you to reach out to someone else. To feel connected. And maybe even to plant a seed that He will grow into beautiful, bountiful fruit.
I will purpose to turn off the words that are instilling fear and hopelessness. I will turn to the words and presence of Him to find my peace. I will listen to music loud enough to drown out the words of doubt. And I will give my smile to each person I pass.
