Each day we hear of horrible acts of violence in other parts of the world and on our own city streets. I often wonder what’s going on – what’s happening to our morality – respect for life and for those who protect us. It’s all so ugly and depressing, we could easily get swallowed up by it.
In the movie, “THE PATRIOT” one phrase stood as a reminder to hang in there when things get tough. ‘Stay the course.’ Those words aren’t used much anymore. Now we think more in terms of the here and now without looking to the future God has planned for us. We have become used to instant gratification.
God made a covenant with His people when He spoke the words in Jeremiah 31:33-34.
“Know the Lord, because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, for I will forgive their wickedness and remember their sins no more.”
Now more than ever, we need to return to Him. He will always be there. Just stay the course.
