Your Monday Muse featuring TobyMac_January 2021
It’s been a rough few days, y’all. Waking up this morning with these song lyrics on my lips.
The name calling. The fighting. The judgment. The broken relationships. The loss of life.
It’s hard … so hard.
Where can we turn during these difficult days?
Who can we trust to tell us the truth?
How do we keep moving forward?
“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters, He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23: 1-4
We need Jesus!
He is the one we can trust.
His Word is a light in the darkness.
He walks with us through the easy moments and the difficult times.
He never leaves us morning, noon, or night.
We need Jesus whether there is a vaccine or not.
We need Jesus no matter who is president or which political party controls Congress.
We need Jesus in January of 2021, and in February and March, and beyond.
Call out to Him today if you’re weary and your heart is burdened.
Be near to us today, Lord. This world is falling apart and it doesn’t feel like there is anywhere to turn for safety. But, You are near to the brokenhearted and hurting. We ask you to heal our country from the inside out. Help us to be kind one to another and to stand for what is right in your sight. Amen.
