Gratitude

The messages that come to us through television, the internet, social media, and many other ways usually have a sense of negativity and complaining within them.  The world is full of despair and suffering.  We humans are inviting sin and darkness into our lives when we sit and consume hours of screen time and look only to serve ourselves…this is not a judgement it is a fact and it happens to me far too often as well.  It is so easy to get sucked in to misery and despair…while it is important to recognize a time for sadness, and mourning, depending upon the battle you are fighting, it is not a state of mind or place to stay and live constantly.  There should always be a time for hope and gratitude to coincide with sadness and despair…with everything in life there should be a healthy balance.  The one place I can trust in hope is in the Word of God…the bible is not a fairy tale it is history and recorded observations.  Jesus Christ came into the world to save us from our sins and He sacrificed himself to death to reconcile us with God…for that I am eternally grateful.  May God’s peace be with you.  (If you are wondering we got the computer working again)
