It’s been a little rough lately. So much has been going on. The world is scarier today than it was yesterday. It seems like with each growing second, there is more chaos and devastation being announced by the news. Technology makes us all aware of what is going on in the world. No more is technology simply an escape tool. So much corruption and manipulation is being accelerated, that it’s hard to keep up with everything.
That’s just talking about the world. This isn’t even including what is happening on your own home front. There used to be a show that came on about 10 years ago, that showed how homes in the nicest looking neighborhoods had “that craziness” going on. It was like a CSI show, but with a closer to home approach. I appreciated that show so much because the local news always seems surprised when the white-collar neighbor is a serial killer, but speaks with an expected tone when a killer is found living in the “hood”.
The world is a scary place, but my God said that He has not given me a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, a spirit of love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). So, I will live my life professing this even when fear attempts to frighten me and bring discomfort when I turn on the 6:00 news. I will live by this scripture as I go through my daily routines and continue to believe that He still has control even when it looks like the world is out of control.
The Lord is my light and salvation; whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1
