As I sat down to listen to the horror that filled my laptop screen 3 nights ago. My body shook! Nowhere is safe anymore. God my world NEEDS YOU!
The London bombing (like every other terror attack) took everyone by surprise. Seven were were killed, 48 injured (16 out of the 48 in critical condition), I can't even imagine the feeling of hopelessness and pain the families of the decease will be feeling right now. This is not about me, so I won't make it about my feelings, instead please give a moment of silence to honour the innocent souls that suffered the result of human wickedness.
I pray for those injured and in critical condition to have healthy and safe recovery. To those that have pasted away, may your souls rest in peace. You won't be forgotten.
As I sat down to listen to the song above. I couldn't help but cry my eyes out. As I meditate on the lyrics of this song, it dawned on me more and more that we need God. The war and strife has got to stop. I cry, "please God no more terror attacks, no more wars, no more strife between men, no more evil, no more pain. God."
God please protect the innocent that will also be blamed as a result of this attack. The ones that would be grouped along with the people who have chosen to take the life of others, under a false illusion of doing good.
God please comfort the crying and hurting families, and protect the scared and strong. Amen.
I pray "The LORD will keep you from all harm-- he will watch over your life " Psalm 121 vs 7.
Something happened to me recently that got me thinking so much. No matter how much I tried to get it off my mind, it all came flooding back, and left me pondering and asking myself so many unanswered questions.
The summary of these questions is 'why?'. I was baffled, smitten and dawn right shocked and I just couldn't figure out, no, process the actions or reasoning of people. One thing that I have come to realised is that, we are all human. Nobody is perfect. We all jump into conclusion and explosions based on our feelings with just the right amount of trigger for each individual.
When we are exploding, and unleashing, we should all be reminded that the people on the receiving end of our out bursts are also human, and also have feeling to be triggered.
A painful experience has thought me that even the people you hold a high amount of regard for, can let you down. They can say hurtful words you haven't even dreamt of hearing, just purely out of hurt. They (just like you) can jump into conclusions, and assumptions, and let surrounding situations, be it past or present, cloud there judgment. No one is beyond mistakes. No one is beyond reasoning imperfection. No one is beyond being human.
Knowing that has helped me to realise that pain is temporary, but love is long lasting, unconditional and true. So even when you are hurt and let down, don't dwell in pain, let love sip through and refresh your heart. Let it heal, mould you, and fix the broken pieces. It might take a while, but that's what makes you durable.
No one's perfect but Love is.
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 john 4 v 7-8
