Wars raging. Epidemics spreading. Volcanoes exploding. Persecutions and attacks. Devastation every where you turn these days. People’s lives are in utter chaos and disarray. Heart-breaking and gut-wrenching photos and video, streaming live throughout the world. Reporters losing their emotional battle while attempting to bring us the horrific stories. Instantly, lives are changed and we all feel the impact.
Yet, in their darkest hour, citizens show amazing courage, strength, hope, love, and compassion. With every dramatic scene; another story of heroism emerges. Neighbors, strangers, and first-responders, frantically trying to help those affected. Hoping they can help save one more person.
Everyday, somewhere and in some way, someone is showing the essence of heroism, hope, and encouragement. None of these people are looking for fame. None of them realize their simple act is impacting someone else deeply.
There are countless stories of how teachers keep calm and shielded their precious children. Men and women who have lost everything in a devastating storm can thank God they are alive and have the courage to say “I knew my maker and I had hope in Him. God protected us. We are alive and everything else can be rebuilt.”
That is a powerful reminder to us all. No matter what you are facing today, God can make a way. Whatever you have lost, God can rebuild. There is absolutely nothing more important than to know your maker. It is in times like these that we are to show true courage, hope, and faith that in the midst of all the chaos, one small glimpse of hope can make all the difference.
Life is the most precious commodity and everything else can be rebuilt. So today, no matter what you face, allow your light to shine brightly upon others. Because in the midst of all your chaos, “The Lord is good, a Strength and Stronghold in the day of trouble.” (Nahum 1:7)
And, you never know when He will take your mess and create the most BEAUTIFUL MESSAGE for everyone else to see.
