#40WordPrayer on SIGHTS
I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
— Psalm 27:13
As I look into the world, I see death all around me:
so much suffering, so much despair,
so much injustice, so much hate.
God, help me to see through a lens of life to see healing,
to see hope, to see liberation,
to know love as you intend.
At times, when I hit a critical mass of the world’s struggles, I want to start running down the street with my fingers planted firmly in my ears and singing my favorite 80s’ tune at the top of my lungs. Yes, blocking everything out might protect me from the bad stuff. And yes, we all need to take a break, to retreat, and to re-energize our souls. But whether tuning out or taking a break, we can’t do so at the expense of seeing the beautiful alternatives that are all around us.
