Strive For Peace

It saddens me to see so much violence. It breaks my heart to see people in so much pain. It kills me when others can’t get along. People mistrust those in authority whose aim is to protect us. Humans warring against each other makes me ill. African Americans in particular mistrust those who are sworn to protect them and from what is being seen in the media for good reason. But it pains me to see that African Americans are tempted to fall into this trap of misgiving and many fall. I know for sure this is the work of the Evil one to divide people when this is the very time everyone needs to come together to war against violence. Violence does nothing but divide and causes horrible heartache for those involved. I hope we continue to keep communication open between us all and strive to get out of our comfort zones for the sake of others. Until my Lord and Savior comes back, the world will never ideally be at peace. However, God does call us to keep the peace as far as it depends on each of us (Romans 12:18). No more whining and moaning about the way things are, let’s do whatever we can to make the world a better place so God can be pleased with how we have lived our lives.

I pray for all those who are grieving the fallen police officers in Dallas, Philando Castile, and Alton Sterling. Violence is never the answer. Dr. Martin Luther King died trying to make that clear. Now, officers and families are the victims of the darkness in a person’s heart that festered in evil thoughts.
