God's Word for Today: I was visiting with a man the other night who wanted to vent. His main question was "How did everything get turned so upside down?" He pointed at the TV and talked about how we are force fed so many things that he doesn't understand. He referred to the music of this era that doesn't make sense. He questioned the removal of prayer in public schools and the attempt to remove God from the Pledge of Allegiance. I believe he could have gone on all night about every negative in this world. I finally interjected and said "You know, all of these things you talk about are our fault. We are the generation that has let all of this come to pass."
He then stopped and started to smile. At that moment, he realized our parents were confused by us too, and their parents about them, and so on. Yes, this world is filled with its problems. We question if the next generation is going to be able to handle it.
The one main stay that has always been passed on, the one part of our lives that has been handed through the generations is the Love we receive from God. The one thing we can count on in this life time is God's forgiveness and mercy. The one thing that will always overcome our worldly struggles is the strength and guidance we receive thru prayer.
Today, pray to Him that loves us, to help this world. Pray for Him to work thru us, our children, and our children's children to make this world a better place. Today, thank God for still being in our lives and to help us to pass this Love down for generations to come......
