Words of Wisdom

I’ve been having a hard time with grace & mercy, justice & kindness this week.
I’m wrestling through some tough situations, & my emotions are running high.

{Blame it on the pregnancy if you’d like, but I don’t think it’d be any different if I wasn’t pregnant. It just makes all these situations that much more impeccably awful timing.}

I’m hurt. I’m angry. I feel bitterness building. I’m tired. I feel my willingness to love, sacrifice, & die to my self are slowly waning.

This morning especially, I’m reminded of

Micah 6:8

He has shown you, O man, what is Good.
And what does the Lord require of you, but to
do justly,
to love kindness & mercy,
& to walk humbly with your God?

Just what I needed to be reminded of.

I looked at a few hundred photos of the oil spill on a news site this morning, and I can’t help but think that it’s so much bigger, so much deeper, so much more of an impact globally than the initial thoughts on it.
It has to be, because everything is connected.

Amidst these photos, there are all sorts of hate signs against BP, which I understand, but the thing is, BP really isn’t the problem. (Not that they’re innocent, by any means.)

They’re responsible for this ONE devastating situation. (1 of 100 in as many years)
So am I. Continue reading “B**ches”
