This isn’t for everyone

just those who said they love Jesus. I had an ah ha worship moment. God created worship to give His people insight into who He is. We repeat phrases over and over again because each repetition etches something deeper in our souls which opens our minds to what God is teaching us.

As we were singing tonight about a firm foundation, I heard it say a firm foundation is not shaken. I asked myself “how firm is this foundation I have built this life on?” Do I believe Jesus is who He says He is? If this is true, then I have to stop letting my foundation be shaken. I have to stop doubting His love because of what I see in this world.

God’s people are surrounded by darkness. We have to stop allowing the darkness determine our actions. We have to stop allowing circumstances to dictate our reactions. We can’t allow the negative to impact our love.

He has called us to love. In a place where everyone is hurting, He has called us to love. This message isn’t for everyone because everyone can’t handle it. He is calling us to love when they shoot us down in the streets. He is calling us to love when they shoot us down in our own homes. He is calling us to love when we can’t. He is calling us to love because He did.

So as you try to process all that the world offers you this week, love someone. Lots of people need it. None deserve it, but do it anyway.

This is for Atatiana. There is love and light in the midst of the darkness.
