Here is a list of things that fatigue my soul:
A continuous chorus of shrill voices-
Angry responses to someone’s differing opinion-
Finger-pointing at those we deem the most guilty-
The latest and never-ending version of gotcha evidence-
Another offering of “this is a game-changer” kind of revelation-
This is a list of some things I see taking place that indicates someone is not moving in the peace of God. The peace of God is not a disengagement from the realities we currently face. It is an in-your-face expression of God’s peace – a peace that cannot be robbed, incited, or polluted by the frustration of what is taking place in our world.
Make your list. I am praying through the one I shared so that it becomes personal, not a distant and angry judgment against another person or group.
“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting” (Psalm 139: 23-24).
