I am still a bit bummed and stunned that so many people do not care about the tragedy in Nigeria. Because some journalists were killed in Paris, the media was up in arms and they still are. I totally get it. It was tragic, but other parts of the world are going through so much more on such a much larger scale and it bugs me. It more than bugs me. It upsets me. Haunts me. Scares me. I guess I get angered because no one seems to care. I know we should live every day like it is our last, but Jeez. I wish people would shows some compassion.
So, I am sitting here, watching one of my fave movies and trying to not eat an entire bag of red grapes. I had a good dinner, but sometimes at night I want a snack. I guess it could be worse. I guess it is typical for people to be concerned about things at night. In my case, night-time after my kid is asleep, everything comes flooding forward. Every concern or fear is magnified 10 fold. I guess because I worry for my child’s future and hate the way the world is for her.
What I need to do instead of lose sleep and eat take more calories in is exercise and pray. I have a hard time sitting quietly with my Bible open and reading the Word or eyes closed and pouring my heart out to the Lord. I can pick the phone up and call a friend and spill basically everything that is on my heart. Why is it so difficult for me to do the same with my savior aka Jesus aka the whole reason I am on this earth?
I have my Bible in my purse. I am doing my devotional everyday. But I have to learn to Let Go and Let God as they say. I am going to try tonight to do that. Because as much as I hurt and feel for people who are persecuted all over the world, particularly Jews and Christians, I cannot fix what is wrong. I can only pray that God turn their hearts.
Night my friends, I am going to try to give al of my sorrows to God tonight and see how my day goes tomorrow. I suggest you do the same.
