One Word: L O V E

In the light of recent events, I must bring my option to the table. I am fully aware most people will not agree with me and I am also aware that my opinion is not what most people believe to be the most effect way either. I also want to note that we are all entitled to our own opinions. I have found in my personal life that some people think their way is the only way and their opinion is the only correct one. However, I am not asking you to agree with me, but whether you agree with me or not and before you exit out of this post, please hear me out.

1 Corinthians 13:7 || Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

John 3:16 || For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

What this world is missing is Jesus and his overwhelming, never ending love. Now let me say this, I am not an expert in politics, nor do I follow every single thing that is going on in the White House or Congress, BUT I do think that there is only one way to fix these problems that are occurring over and over again within our country and the world: LOVE.  I don’t think there is any solution any politician can come up with to fix this God size mess we got going on in the world. From all the school shootings, to terrorist attacks, to differences between race…we all seem to be forgetting the fundamentals this country was built on. It’s in God we trust that our hope and peace should rest in.

God called us to LOVE, he called us to SERVE, he called us to TRUST in him. I believe that when we start approaching every situation with a Godly mindset, exhibiting love and mercy from the small situations to the big ones, we will see a change in our daily lives. I do think that there should be laws and consequences for the ones who are committing these horrible, horrible crimes and acts. And no matter what, there will always be evil in the world, always. It is important to remember where peace is lacking, you can always be sure the enemy is going to swoop on in and start attacking. That is why we must be on guard and aware when we start to lack in faith and trust in God. When we start to lack in our faith and trust, that is when the enemy will see you and come and attack.

1 Peter 5:8 || Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 

John 10:10 || The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

My solution and my opinion may not be in line with yours, but it is time for a change. It starts with our hearts and our trust in God. God love us even when we sin and disobey him… that is a love like no other. We don’t deserve his unconditional, unfailing love, BUT because he loves us more than we will ever know, he still gives us his love. Therefore we should be encouraged daily to love like our father loves us. 

I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, still You give Yourself away

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God.
