This past fortnight has been a tough one.
In the aftermath, these are my thoughts:
I believe that God,
Loves me supremely,
He understands us when humans misunderstand.
He values us when we are un-valued.
He represents us when we are misrepresented.
I believe God speaks through the Bible.
Through other people
Through my heart and my mind.
I believe that God can
And often does
But that doesn't mean we should settle for less than the best.
I believe that humans make mistakes.
When we do,
We should admit it,
And move on.
I believe that God works in our lives over periods of time.
He prepares us for what lies ahead.
He gives us courage.
He whispers words of love,
Through the storm.
I believe that God fights for us,
as a family,
and not just for our situations.
I believe that wounds from friendly fire
Cut deeper than those of enemy fire.
I believe that God is healer.
He soothes our pain and calms our fears.
I believe that bystander apathy is a natural response.
But there comes a time when we should have the courage to voice our concerns on behalf of the hurting.
I believe that truth always rises to the surface.
I believe that God sees our distress,
and sends his ministering angels in the form of friends and family.
And send chocolate.
Thank you my friends.
