The air has been thick with smoke many days now making it hard to breathe easy. I can’t help but to equate it with the news channels also bombarding people with how awful everything is. It reminds me of those schoolmates who loved to stir up trouble where there was little to be had. I don’t dismiss that it is a struggle with the current condition of our economy but I will never understand the need of our own national and local news to bury people with discouragement.
On the other hand I don’t believe that putting one’s head in the sand is an answer. We really should look more closely at the truth of our situation. We have an opportunity to be reconciled with our King both for ourselves and our nation but we have to first admit we need help.
2 Ch 7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
