We Are Broken

IMG_3175

Enough. We are broken…Hearts raw and bleeding at the growing devastation in our world and the mess we have become.

I am struck by the fact that the media loves to feed on misery and destruction. Hollywood and writers want their nickel’s worth of camera and print time to push their opinion (like we really care or that it really matters). Politicians love it…they feed their campaigns with divisiveness. Pick a side…any side…Let’s polarize and split . They look for like minded constituents with closed ears, and they play that agenda like an old 45. The 4th grade teacher in me wants to clap my hands and shout…”STOP. IT.”

Your “side” doesn’t matter…Your personal agenda doesn’t matter. It is not solving a thing. I have only one answer and his name is Jesus. Where is the Gospel in all of this? Simplistic? Yeah. But…after spending 10 weeks studying the Sermon on the Mount, I have realized…there are NO sides…just sinners…We…ALL…OF…US. There is ONE…

Here’s the thing…It’s not about the side you chose…or where you stand on issues…It’s about STANDING in the gap…and praying. Stand with me…Bend a knee on the 6’s each day…Let’s pray for our communities, our state, our nations. our politicians…ALL POLITICIANS…Let’s pray for those devastated by hurt, hate, and destruction around the world…

2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Humble…Pray…Seek His face…Turn…
