The division in our world is even driving a stake between families and friends. Thoughts and understanding on everyday issues have become so totally polarized that its becoming increasingly difficult to have debate, discussions or disagreements anymore. Anyone not on the same page is wrong, they are either selfish or foolish depending which camp you are part of, and should therefore not be tolerated.
The funny thing about surrendering, is that it’s so easy to grab those surrendered things back. Choosing to pick up my cross has had to become a daily habit, daily surrendering the things of this life to the Lord and making the tough choices to follow Him, even when its not comfortable or easy.
Lord Jesus, thank you for being my strength when mine is not sufficient. Thank you for letting me see glimpses of You in the midst of the darkness. Thank you for drawing to me when I pray and seek Your face in the midst of the unknown.
