You Can

You’ve awakened to tragic news this morning: the attack on Ohio State University students, the crash of a chartered plane carrying members of a Brazilian soccer team and the raging fires literally engulfing Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Sadly, these events are but the tip of the iceberg of what happens to people around the world every single hour of every day. It’s heartbreaking. And it’s also so overwhelming you probably feel virtually powerless to do anything. But you can. You can pray that God’s grace will come in exactly the way it is needed at exactly the time it is needed. You can pray that God will show you what you can do to respond in the way you can at the time you can. And you can seek to grow in your love of God and neighbor every single day. You’ll never be able to magically fix anything. But you can be a channel of God’s love that makes more difference than you’ll ever dream possible.
