The constant struggle

image

There is so much going in the world that it is overwhelming, like…  My prayer list is super long. It may be because we have more access to global events,  but it is some good and a lot of BAD! From the sheer racism that are happening on college campuses, the ongoing killings of POC by some law enforcement, to the most atrocious slaughters that have happened just within this week alone. I just wish the teachings of love and community were more permissible and accepted as opposed to worthless material gains and ridiculous aspirations to “fame”.

When was the last time you really enjoyed your family and friends,  without looking at your phone, without trying to keep up with the Jones’ of soc. Media? I mean when was the last time you even thanked the Higher Power for what he has done for you and your loved ones?  I mean,  I can’t even do the “#prayfor[inserttheatrocityhere]” because it does not feel right to me. I stay prayed up no matter what. So pray to whomever or whatever suits all conditions,  and do it wholeheartedly because the whole world needs it. Remember:

Prayer should be your first response,  not your last resort. 

Allow that to marinate. Have a great weekend to all.

  1. N^2, you are so right, we have to pray for now, tomorrow and the future. We shouldn’t wait till something happens to be thankful or pray. We should always hope, pray and wish for good tidings on earth, becos a lot is happening whether we read or hear about it or not. We have to learn to love each other and appreciate the differences that make us each unique in our own ways. No one person or group owns the world, so we shouldn’t be too quick to peg ownership on things that aren’t really ours. But like you said, we have to show love to the people around us and begin to appreciate the little and big things in life, of course with gratitude to the Maker who made it possible. # Breathe, Live Love!
