OFF THE CUFF Writing
Today finalizes June, which spread a chaotic wave of two sides arguing, slandering and hating each other with no compassion and conflict resolution in sight. The media goes nowhere, it just wants to crush us, and that can be demoralizing. I shout out ‘Bunk!’ Instead it suffices me to hear just one hour of news from each side daily, then cradle a Bible verse I can mull over for guidance. Like moi, why not try this to realize how much more peace will permeate your daily living.
“The one who prays is not afraid of the future.” –-Mary at Medjugorje
Like the Centurion spoke to Jesus, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant will be healed.” –Matthew 8:5
Let us be like Jesus who with compassion: “Took away our infirmities and bore our diseases.” —Matthew 8:-17
“And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have obtained the requests made of him.” —1 John 5:15
Prayerfully may July be less notorious and families enjoy some kind of summertime fun.
