To Paris with love

As I sit here in the cool breeze, with clear blue skies, and birds flying overhead you would think I am the picture of tranquility.  Deep inside, in my spirit-woman, I am.  I have that profound sense of peace that passes all understanding.  I know I live in a fallen world and I believe that God is still sovereign, in the midst of chaos and tragedy.

However, my emotions are another story.  I mourn for the victims of yet another senseless massacre.  I think of the multitude of family members who are finding out today that the people they love won’t be coming home.  The husbands, wives, children, parents and other loved ones who will get a phone call or a visit that will change their lives forever.  The numbers of the fatalities keep changing; 100, 120, 148 and although high; the victims are considerably higher.  They will all be in my prayers today.

Let us also remember the others, numbering in the thousands by now, who have lost their lives due to acts of terrorism.  Many countries have been affected and as we focus our prayers and thoughts on France today, let us not fail to pray for the World and for our governing authorities to have wisdom in dealing with this situation.  We need strong leaders who listen to God for instruction.

In the times we are living in, it’s more imperative than ever that we all remember that tomorrow is never promised.  Do whatever God has called you to do, today.   Forgive that person, send those flowers, show that love, pick up that phone now; don’t delay.  Do not live in fear, but make the most of every moment.

Obviously, I am a Christ follower and I would encourage you to glean your strength from Him; the only Omnipotent, Omnipresent strength I’ve ever known.

Praying for Paris ❤

Father God, I pray for strength, wisdom and comfort for all of those touched by this senseless tragedy

Let them feel Your Divine love and that peace that only You can give

Touch each and every loved one as their hearts are broken today

and touch every worker at every scene and give them the strength they need to continue their work.

Give the leaders in Paris and those around the world the insight and wisdom needed to handle this catastrophe

Help us to love in word and in deed as we mourn with those who mourn

In Jesus’ name, amen
