The Season of Peace and Tranquility

I’m going to have to stop watching the news for awhile. I have gotten wayyyy too immersed in what’s going on, and the people I meet in my life–whether yellow, black, white, or red–are just as nice as they usually are.

One of my college relatives says that (at least at her school) she has not seen any of the nutty stuff that the national news is covering about angry college protests.

I don’t think I’ll be lending a blind eye to events around me. I think, rather, I won’t be as focused on what other people tell me I should be focused on.<br>

Anyway, I’ll be far less angry.

I really like what the Bible says in I Timothy 2:1-2:

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for everyone–for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all Godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”

What an unbelievable verse! There is so much power in prayer. Instead of being all caught up in negativity, I’m going to work at praying for our leaders just as the Bible says.<br>

I can’t think of a better time than the Christmas season to do just that.

Blessings!
