My heart has been hurting lately and I haven’t felt much like writing. Sometimes it’s because it seems no one cares and others is because I know that sometimes no one cares what I think. I am not so ego driven that I think what I have to say is so extremely important to the world that the thoughts in my head need to be written down for all to see.
The reason my heart has been hurting is because I see what is happening in the world, heck the US, and I can’t believe what I am seeing. People no longer allowed to read books that they wish, statues being torn down, violence in the streets and brother pitted against brother.
Jesus told of this in Matthew 24, “4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.” In some translations the “sorrows” are called birth pangs or labor pains and my oh my that is sure what it feels like living in today’s world.
I have been called all sorts of names and labeled all sorts of things because of my steadfast belief in The Word. Belittled and blamed because I choose to live my life by the narrow path. I have been told I am on the wrong side of history, which may very well be true, but I would rather that than the wrong side of eternity.
