I have been praying that a call for a ‘week of mourning’ in the United States would be called by our leaders….I have heard nothing. National Day of Mourning? I had a wise woman tell me, “Men have forgotten how to cry.”
We need to mourn, weep, repent, to reflect on our sins as a nation, we need to seek the face of Jesus and ask for forgiveness.
Have we become so numb here in America, so out of touch with God, that we cannot weep and mourn?
Are we going to let politics define who we are? Are we going to be defined by God? Are we going to become once again a Godly nation? Are we going to continue our path into darkness?
I feel so sad that many in the Body of Christ feel that politics is the way out of this darkness in America, many Pastors are doing the same! Politics is not the answer, GOD is the answer. GOD rules over everything! It is foolish behavior to put politics over GOD! One of the main reasons we are a morally corrupt nation, is politics. Politicians are not GOD, they spew ‘nothing noise’ 24/7.
Mark my word, if we as a nation continue to politicize everything, we are done.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4
A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. Ecclesiastes 3:4
Are these shootings just another expected tragedy every month in America? Is it becoming a part of the everyday life here?
Are these massacres becoming part of the fabric of America?
Last night as we prayed after our doubleheader, the man praying from the other team pleaded, “Lord help us, we have become such a corrupt nation, help us.”
Amen to that!
Kelly Snelgrove posted this today at FGGAM:
The law of the LORD is perfect,
refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The precepts of the LORD are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the LORD are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the LORD is pure,
The decrees of the LORD are firm,
and all of them are righteous.
They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the honeycomb.
By them your servant is warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
In many more ways than one, this tragedy has touched many lives here in New Mexico and all over the world. I have many friends from El Paso, or who have lived there.
We just got news of a lovely lady from Santa Fe, NM that was killed in the El Paso shootings. ABQ Journal Story
