The Power of Love:
Today, I am grateful to be a part of the human race. Because when you open your eyes and don’t keep them shut due to bitterness and shame, you can truly see some wonderful people doing some even more wonderful things. This life is so beautiful. This chance is so precious. It’s too easy to get caught up in the negative about what’s happening: the terror, the war, the hunger. This is always very important. And we cannot ignore that it is happening. This matters and these are real people. This life is only temporary. We are living this life for Life. When we focus on love, we can overcome through the darkest times. I just want to encourage you. Because dark times still may come. And we need to remember through the night that day is approaching. We need to remember that in the storm, calm awaits. We need to remember that we are so marvelously loved. With that as our weapon and shield, we can overcome any obstacle. We need to be patient with each other. We all cry. We all bleed. More than that, we all love. We share a similar experience. Don’t allow the world and things that are happening here to distort or confuse your understanding of love. “But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded” (2 Chronicles 15:7). I have faith in that. I will never lose faith in that.
