We are the ones
"It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes."
Yes, the world seems decidedly short of princes these days. One has to really look to find them. Our faith in human beings can easily wane when we look around at who the world admires; athletes, billionaires, Kardashians. But as we look around for seemingly absent heroes, what if WE are being called to be the heroes? We look around for people to trust but how trustworthy are we? We can complain about the lack of good in the world, but WE are to be the good we seek. We can sit around and watch for good to happen, but, WE are the ones God has put here to bring good into our world. It is up to us, in our time, to bring the healing and comfort we need to experience in our lives and in our world today. When we look around for heroes, we should look in the mirror. It's a tall order, I realize, but, thankfully, we are not alone--we can trust in the Lord to help us. Love, heidi
