In fact, what the enemy meant for evil, I know my God meant for good. It is a humbling thing to be brought down to our knees and realize what we do have. We have our life. If we're still breathing, He is not done with us yet. As Americans especially, we are the lucky ones. We are a privileged people. Let us not take that for granted.
Now, I'm not undermining the darkness of this recent horrific incident but just pause for a moment. Let me open your eyes. Listen closely. There are about 1 billion people that don't have access to clean water worldwide; that's a lot more than every single person living in the U.S. right now! Another billion (approximately) are hungry which means that if they don't get the proper nutrition, they will die. Children are nothing but skin and bones in other places in the world. Hungry, thirsty, forgotten... In Africa, the LRA is abducting KIDS to kill each other and their families in a senseless war. This is happening right now. Every day. Children are dying from preventable causes, including diarrhea. Many of which are slow, long-drawn out painful deaths. You think the Newtown tragedy was bad? Well, what if we really saw what was going on around the world? Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it's not real. It's time for us to unite together as the human race, all people with hearts and brains, to do something about the unnecessary killings.
Some think that the rain is a sign of misery and hopelessness. I believe that the raindrops are God's tears, sometimes tears of joy and sometimes of sadness. However, the end result is always the same. There is always a rainbow and with that, there is always hope.
