Rise Up

This was the tune of my day.

How are you doing?

Turn off your Facebook, Twitter, Insta-everything. Shut your door. Close your eyes. Remember that you are loved. Listen to this song. You will rise up again.

We need more love. More patience for each other. No one is perfect. You, nor I, could ever be everything that anyone could ever need. But, a smile, a hug, a friendly gesture – whatever you can do to restore peace – do that.

Philippians 4:8 says, “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

I can humbly accept the outcome of this election. In fact, I welcome it, for the sole reason that what has followed has been peace in my heart, and others. Because the fighting has subsided.

A vaccine is on the way, treatments are gaining traction, civility has begun to overcome unrest and common sense has entered the minds of those who make decisions. Friends, we have a long way to go, but I pray that we all remember that God sits on the throne, and that He loves each and every one of us for who we are. My life has been challenging the last couple of weeks as anyone else’s – but I’m thankful for my family, and the support that they have given me in these crazy times.
