When Things Fall Apart
Our lives are filled with hazards and tragedies; at times they can be overconsuming and overbearing. It is very scary when things begin falling apart. I shudder to think of what lies beneath the frail surface of my days. Chaos can so easily overpower our confidence.
It is during these times that I make the effort to open my heart to God, the bulwark of my being. I ask God to unroot the evil that permeates my life and my society. I pray that the fire of love, God’s Love, as Jesus taught, overpowers the devastating fires of evil and trauma. I root myself in God’s presence. Finally, I am calm and assured that whatever happens, I have the Holy Spirit walking with me.
