Not so much literally. But "the muck" is over-whelming. We need to redirect and refocus to God. A walk in God's creation with a friend of faith is a powerful option. So too is 5-10 minutes of quiet and prayer. Amen.
We can't be focused on what's going on around us, but what is ahead of us. Jesus lifts and guides us to our destination. Stay close; keep your eyes on what He does and your ears to what He says. With Him all things are possible. Amen.
The reality is some of our brothers and sisters didn't wake up today; and yet here we are. We don't know today's purpose or if we will even fulfill it. We can only do our small part. God does all of the rest. Amen.
Matthew 22:37-40 - "He said to him, “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.” Amen.
We try to fight the battles that are not ours; battles we cannot win on our own. It is too easy for us to become victims in the daily skirmishes. We just need to let God shelter us while He fights the war He has already won. Amen,
