I don’t know if it’s just me but the world seems to be going crazy right now. Things feel so unsettled and everything is shifting. The times have become overwhelming and heavy. At times I want to bury my head in the sand and hope everything gets better. But I believe the only way that things get better is if we cling to our purpose and get to work.
When the world around us gets crazy it’s our job to call on our higher selves to move our world in the right direction. We have to remember that we are not alone in this fight, but God is with us. He is calling on you and me to be the people he has purposed us to be. He has not called us to shrink back in fear and wait for someone else to save us. There isn’t a someone else, we only have ourselves. We are the change that we want to see in our lives.
I am reminded of this, even when tears fall from my eyes from the concerns and pressures of life. As I cast my cares on Him, God empowers me into greater purpose. As stated above, we are not in this alone. God has promised to never leave nor forsake us. Not only do we have to believe this but we have to rest in this understanding. The world has called on us to be brave and to go after the dreams that God has set in our hearts. We can’t give up and we can’t give in to the pressure. Even when things seem dark, we have to search for the inner light inside to guide us through. The world doesn’t need someone, it needs you and me to stand in solidarity and make the difference.
Happy MLK Day!
