An Opportunity to Turn Tragedy into Triumph

Written by Joyce C. Lock

Continued from page 1

Signing petitions won't make our world better. Neither will hanging flags or lighting candles (even though we continue to do so because we care). Though, if we really want to make a difference, we can start believing that God meant what He said.

Consider who might be on your throne. Is your opinionrepparttar ultimate authority? How about your religion? Or, your preacher? Or, maybe a church committee? Even your mate? Your children? Friends?

God wants His throne back. It's really that simple. The Kingdom of God comes not with observation; not from memorizing every verse of scripture or from beingrepparttar 132221 perfect example either.

Created in God's image, He gets lonely, too. More than anything we could possibly offer God, He desires an intimate relationship with us. Do we get our daily walk from a book of dead laws or from a Living God who walks and talks with us? God will come down and dwell with us once He is welcomed.

While it is never God's will for people to hurt people, anger is of concern in that - as long as we place blame elsewhere, we missrepparttar 132222 ultimate truth that 'we did it to ourselves'.

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Ch. 7:14

God wants to love us in ways we never dreamed. But, He can only do so once He has first place.
