“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you” (Matt. 5:44).
Like you, I was sickened, grieved, outraged and angered almost beyond reason when once again I saw Islamic militants marching orange-clad men along the seashore in Libya. Instead of Egyptians, this time they were Ethiopians. And they were all beheaded because they were Christians.
I have felt helpless with my thoughts and emotions in turmoil as though I have been caught up in the funnel of an evil tornado and lost my perspective … my sense of direction. Which way is up? Then I saw the YouTube video that is linked below.
Thank you, dear Father, Son and Holy Spirit, for calming my heart, sharpening the focus of my faith and drawing me to my knees once again … for them.
