James 1:21 (MSG)

 

Act on What You Hear

 

19-21 Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow-up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear. God’s righteousness doesn’t grow from human anger. So throw all spoiled virtue and cancerous evil in the garbage. In simple humility, let our gardener, God, landscape you with the Word, making a salvation-garden of your life.

 

In truth, the verdict was not totally unexpected, yet there was still a moment of disappointment.  Watching and listening my heart continues to cry out to the Lord.  Comfort came as I read James 1:21.  God’s righteousness will prevail.  In every situation, for every child lost or harmed, family broken and disasters, God has the final say.  Like many in this country, I paid attention to the Trayvon Martin case.

 

I  am humbly grateful for the freedoms that I enjoy, said freedoms that have been paid for on the backs, bones and efforts of others.  My heart aches for every family that will never again wrap their arms around their loved ones.  I weep because the world seems to be careening so horribly out of kilter and I pray.    Prayers  for the peace of God to move this country and world forward.  I pray for hearts to open and recognize that God has the final say and that  He is always just.    There is solace in repeating and meditating on Psalm 30:5  (KJ21) 5 For His anger endureth but a moment, and in His favor is life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

 

Making His praise glorious!
