Remembering the goodness...

Nine years ago today things changed in the world, as we knew it. People with hate as their agenda stepped over the threshold into pure evil. I give honor to those men and women whose lives were taken in such a horrible way.

I was reading this morning in Romans 12… about evil and goodness. Evil is never overcome with hate… evil can only be overcome with goodness. And truly pure goodness can only be found in God through His Son, Jesus Christ. I can hate what these people did, and I do, but I must ask Papa God for His goodness to work in me to forgive and actually love these people that hate us and what we stand for… not sure if I am there yet with that… but my awareness of it is a first step in the right direction. I do know that my focus can’t be on the evil… in has to be on God’s goodness… Christ died for ALL, sometimes that is a “hard pill” to swallow when evil has caused such personal devastation… I guess that is why we need God, because there is NO way to do that on our own.

"I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth." – Psalm 121:1-2
"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." - Romans 12:21

“As light overcomes darkness, goodness can overcome evil.”

with a grateFUL HEART, carin
