Have mercy! Empathy, I believe, is influenced by acknowledging our own imperfections. A self examination in knowing I’m flawed lets me love myself. Creativity puts this into perspective. For instance, knowing what I appreciate, what I enjoy doing, gives prospects for improvement.
Love allows me to expect the best. The best outcome during unpredictable times, love nurtures hope. Quality of life follows sensible choices. Parents want happiness, joy, and certainly hope their babies choose wisdom. Unconditional love is unique. A loved one screws up, first instinct is to react with anger. Yet, forgiveness heals. Love and faith are known to defy all odds. That’s powerful!
Emotions cannot control us. Our reaction is a natural instinctive state of mind to circumstances, moods, or relationships. These are sentiments. My opinion is my own attitude. Opinions are subjective to change.
“[Prayer …] is not an attempt to force God’s hand, but a humble acknowledgment of helplessness and dependence. [… It] is not we who control the world; it is not in our power […] to supply our needs by our own independent efforts; every good thing that we desire for ourselves and for others must be sought from God, and will come, if it comes at all, as a gift from His hands.”
J. I. Packer

May we learn to trust in the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. People can be difficult to love. Perhaps it is difficult to love ourselves. Yes, we are flawed. Yet, flaws set us apart; a perfect example of overcoming the challenges this life has to offer.
Prayer is medicine for the soul. Belief is hope! My faith is in unseen forces, a divine comfort is always near. Prayer is the realm of serenity. Hope lives. Love thrives.
As a believer, I expect my loved ones to be joyful. Even through harsh times, rejoicing in the Lord above lifts my own spirit higher. Forget wickedness, the world, drugs, people, and myself. Lawlessness is abundant, rebellion against humanity exists. War is about destruction. History is clear on this. Scientific and biblical evidence coincide with living proof that rebellion against the Lord of Heaven’s Armies destroys. Exclude bitter, depressed, anxious, or serious illness and calamities. Even healthy people may refuse life over sorrow. Stop being sorry!
