You are light. This world is filled with darkness and negativity, but you have provided a way that I can be joyful, thankful, and content. However, the ignorance of our world really saddens me.... It is real; there ARE children being manipulated and mutilated, stolen and forced to do terrible acts. Why must people be so apathetic to decry a powerful cause so they don’t actually have to get up and DO something in this world? It’s awful Lord; the world is so lacking in compassion and brotherly love.
Help me to be someone who burns away the darkness of their negativity with light. We have so much to be thankful for. While some people devote their lives in hatred of something.
Darkness will not be my default.
