It’s another Wednesday! I completely skipped posting my “how can I pray for you?” post on Facebook last week. My heart was tired from all of the angst in our society. I redirected myself on some life-affirming projects (like my Heartbeat presentation which goes live in a couple of hours!) to lift my spirits. I don’t believe in hiding from the world, tempting though it may be but I do believe in the importance of being cautious of how much “news” we absorb. Actual news is hard to come by these days. We must guard our hearts.
Too many people are too afraid of too many people, and of too much stuff! I get it. I am afraid of some things happening in our world (have been for a while) but I am working on releasing that fear.
This verse hit home with me today.
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear…” (1 John 4:18)
Perfect love drives out fear. Wow. That means my love is far from perfect! Each of us can grow in love – love for family and friends, but also love for people with whom we disagree. Let us stop the ranting and start reconnecting on a human level.
I almost forgot…How can I pray for you this week?
