It’s apparent, more than ever that there are a lot of problems going on in the world….in our own country. The divisiveness is deep and love seems conditional at best. Human nature is running it’s course, rearing it’s ugly head in the form of racism, hate, hostility, selfishness, pride…the list goes on and on.
In light of all of this, my prayer is for a revival to happen….revival in our communities, revival in our families, revival in our country and revival around the world.
That the hearts of those who trust Jesus would be emboldened to share the truth IN LOVE, NOT JUDGEMENT OR CONDEMNATION!
That good, solid, life-changing conviction would guide us, stir us and awaken our souls to our own conditions and to the folks around us.
That BECAUSE of our hope in Jesus, our hearts would sloppily and unceasingly overflow with love, generosity and grace onto all those around us.
That our eyes and actions would be so beaming with love, bringing up Jesus isn’t even necessary….just His radiation of love through our actions would be enough to touch lives.
That folks who have condemned Jesus as false, would yearn to know Him as truth.
That stomachs would churn, restlessness would occur and the uneasy prodding of “maybe there’s something more” would infiltrate souls, minds and hearts…..leading to the discovery of truth, freedom, hope and peace that is only found in Jesus and His grace.
That those who wish evil on others would be brought to their knees, seek forgiveness and find the God who loves them.
The truth is that when things are dark, light shines even brighter. May God light our lamps, strengthen our bones and embolden our spirits as we slog through the stinky, murky, slimy reality of evilness so prevalent in this world.
May our bland lives pop with flavor and may the God who created us all direct our steps. Most of all, may we have the courage to follow His steps, which always lead to life and jaw-dropping change. May we be the change that this world needs friends!
