What a sad state of affairs America, and this world, is currently in right now. With these recent two suicides, people are starting to take notice of a trend that has been going on for quite awhile now. I didn’t know either of these famous people that tragically ended their lives. I don’t watch television, nor subscribe to a news service, so I’m not up on current trends. However, it’s still a warning call. Any life ended by the one living it is a major red flag, no matter who it is!
We are seeing rising numbers of suicides, murder, and bullying, just to name a few. What’s more disconcerting to me is the amount of effort put into “activism” and “awareness”, all to absolutely no avail.
Wonder why that is?
Looking For Answers in All the Wrong Places
They say the answer to ending school shootings is gun control. But it seems to me, those doing the shooting couldn’t even get a gun under the regulations currently in place. Last time I checked, murder is still illegal, and yet people choose to do it anyway. So how, please tell me, is making stricter gun laws going to slow the reign of terror inflicted by those who take no thought to laws and regulations in the first place? It just doesn’t make sense, in my humble opinion.
They say the answer to bullying is to enforce stricter regulations on the act of bullying. Well, that doesn’t seem to be working either. My own daughter was a victim of bullying. In fact, she went through some extreme trauma at the hands of relentless bullies that told her, among many other things, that she should simply kill herself. Nothing was ever done about it and after countless times of being bullied, and millions of tears shed, she reacted. The result? SHE got in trouble. Still, I don’t blame the parents of the children that did the bullying. I don’t even blame the school. Because if there’s one truth in life, it’s that kids are CRUEL. And so far, I’ve seen nothing that can stop that fact. But we don’t need to teach more victim mentality. Because that obviously isn’t working.
In essence, no matter what “crisis” we’re dealing with at any given time, the answer seems obvious. At least to me. We are currently a Godless society, living with Godless laws and with Godless people “running the show”. I don’t care if you’re an atheist, pagan, satanist or any other title that leaves God out of the equation. By American standards, yes, you have a right to your beliefs. I do not buck the system so as to say that you don’t. But the consequences of the actions of many who fall under that category are being felt by all of us.
The only chance we have, as a nation, as a country, as a society, as a community…is God.
Many of you reading this may not believe that, but I believe it with all my heart. I know what He can do. I’ve seen it, experienced it myself. I have complete trust in Him, with absolutely NO reservations at all, because He’s never failed me yet! Praise God, when I was at my lowest, He opened my eyes to more Truth than I had ever known before. He lifted me up out of junk I’d been a slave to for longer than I care to admit. And He’s no respecter of persons…He can do it over and over again, for as many that call on His Name.
I will continue to pray that the hearts of the people will once again, someday, return to God.
Without Him, we have no hope.
