During a great Tribulation in my life the only thing I wanted was to know people were praying for me & the situation. Sadly no one was .. even my church family faded. As a result I now make that my priority when I encounter situations where someone is hurting!
Years ago, I decided that Buddhism's "beliefs" were similar to my own so I began practicing it. I DO NOT hate anyone. I DO "pray" that everyone achieves enlightenment. Even those people who hate me or wish me harm. I am a pacifist but I love and support our soldiers. I believe in compassion for every living being. Yeah, that means you too. I believe in a Creator but one that has given us the power of wonder not one who would stifle us with dogma. I am far more than you will ever see.
Tonight I am in shock, sadness, I am confused, concerned, disappointed, fearful. I hold my friends and peers beliefs, identities & loved ones close to my heart. Tomorrow I wake up stronger, ready to fight for a better future together. I will never stop loving & caring about humanity, no matter who is in charge. I will pray every day that we continue our progress and that the future continues to look bright even in the darkest hour. God Bless America, we will CONTINUE to make you great.
I've heard that when one door closes, another opens. I say, CLOSE THEM BOTH! YOU'RE LETTING OUT ALL THE HEAT! I know how difficult the cold is on the human body, mind, and spirit. Today keep praying for all of those who are experiencing the cold especially the homeless. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie Spiritual Advisor
May this prayer for hope inspire you to trust in God’s providence for your life. Things may not turn out exactly as you like, but our hope in Jesus allows us to face any trial. Don’t give up hope. Remember, God always has the last word.
