Dear God, a lot of things are happening in the world lately. The Coronavirus pandemic, political issues, racial injustices, and recently, the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon. Moreover, when this year started, bad things were already happening and were making headlines from different parts of the world. And to be honest, I was really scared. I thought, ‘Is it the end of the world?’ because that’s what I always see on the news. Little did I know that fear was slowly creeping in on me without realizing that it’s making me lose sight of You. I became worried about many things, especially all the future uncertainties. Sometimes I cried myself to sleep and was really distracted. But then, You whispered into my heart again. And You told me to fix my eyes on You.
So, I choose to fix my eyes on You, God.
I’m sorry for not trusting You. I was so distracted, I allowed the enemy to win, play with my heart, and forget all Your promises. But no, I won’t ever listen to the enemy again.
You are my certainty in this world full of uncertainties. You are my security when this world seems like it’s fading away. LORD, You are my peace when the world is deafening. You give me stillness when overwhelming things are trying to distract me. You are my strength and my courage when I’m scared. God, You are my world. Help me not to lose sight of who You are, and who I am to You. Once again, I place my trust in You.
More than what all the earthly wisdom tries to offer as a solution to this broken world, I know You are the only hope of the world. Help me always see things from Your perspective. Especially when I think the world is beyond repair. I place everything into Your hands, LORD. You are God alone and You reign forever and ever. Amen.
