How are we supposed to stay positive when there is so much tragedy, despair & evil in our world right now? It feels impossible, but there are some things we can do.
Here’s my take.
#1 – Prayer. Please, please pray. Our world, our country, our leaders, our communities need prayer. Not only is prayer powerful, but there is something so freeing about giving it all to the only one who is truly in control.
#2 – FIND THE GOOD in anything & everything… Find something good in the tragedy. With the deadliest shooting in our country’s modern history happening less than 48 hours ago, we are all heartbroken. Adding to that brokenness is some of our leaders & the media. Instead of focusing on the lives lost and recognizing the humanity in each of us, people are making it POLITICAL. But folks, this is not political. WHO CARES if the victims were Republican / Democrat, Gay / Straight, Black / White, Male / Female, Old / Young, etc, etc. Stephen Paddock did not discriminate when he fired into the crowd. For some unknown reason, he wanted death, fear and destruction for everyone at that concert, and that’s just what he got. We all know the gory details, but what isn’t getting much coverage is the way our country is pulling together in light of this horrific event. Blood banks had people lined up all day yesterday, thousands and thousands of dollars have been donated to help the families of the victims. Try to find the good.
