Maybe I’m just tired, or maybe I’m noticing it more… but the sheer evil in this world has been wearing me down. Turn on the television- violence, open the paper or a magazine- more stories of violence, and don’t even look at social media unless you want to see graphic pictures and graphic writing.
The stories that really hit hard are the ones about crimes against children. I am sick to my stomach about these things. How can children be abused so horribly? I thought I had seen and been through some bad things, but lately, oh my goodness…. I cry out to God to save these poor innocent babies.
We are in the process of opening a foster home. It’s been a long process, and yes, I am tired and stressed…. but oh, how amazing it is going to be to welcome in a child to our home and help rebuild what someone else has destroyed. I suppose the whole point of this post is to encourage you to find hope, give hope, be hope to someone out there, regardless of age, race, male or female– give someone hope today. In return, you may find yourself being hopeful again. For when two or more are gathered, God is present.
