These last few weeks and months have been overwhelming. We have faced some things we have never faced while also being forced to face something we have ignored for a long time. Our nation is more divided than ever before, and agendas are being politicized while hurting people are being used as bait rather than receiving and giving ministry.
I’m weary. An honest thought – I don’t know what to do, but I’m going to try to do something. The problem is too many good people are doing nothing. I’m reminded that while I don’t know what to do, it’s better to do something than nothing at all. If we get it wrong, let’s learn from our mistakes and try again. I have missed out on a lot of opportunities because of fear. I don’t want to miss out anymore. I want to pray. I want to hear from God. I want to walk in boldness and courage. I want to be here for all people. I made a commitment to God to be available to serve everyone I possibly can regardless of race, socioeconomic status, and any other labels, and I stick by that commitment. I’m here to listen. I’m here to love. And I will not rest until I have done all I can to be a part of the solution rather than the problem. God, I need your help, and I know You won’t let me down.
