"This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all." - I John 1:5
"This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him." - Psalm 18:30
You are in control and You are good. Today, God, many of us mourn for what was our great nation. We mourn because with today's inauguration, a liar who is against the least of these and whose party is hellbent on killing off the least of these takes control. A soulless man who thinks he does not need forgiveness from You and thinks it is okay to just grab women. Soulless men who think it's acceptable to cut off access to healthcare, food, shelter, etc. from the least of these. Soulless men who wish to destroy all the press and freedoms of the press and who want to kill the arts and sciences. God, through all these things I cannot understand how You can possibly be in control. There is no darkness in You. That being said please destroy the darkness before it takes over this country and destroys every single one of us. I pray that You give us strength and courage to stand for what is right and that You empower us to stay strong in the face of adversity and to never fall asleep to what is going on. Keep us alert for what is about to come.
In Jesus' Name,
