Reasons for Riots

Like all of you, I have been dismayed by the state of our country in recent days…even years, to be honest.  I feel compelled to share this sermon that my husband and I listened to.  Never have I heard a better scriptural explanation for what is occurring in our cities, our homes, our hearts.  I pray that you who read this will take the time, open your Bibles, and listen with an open heart to this very powerful and sobering sermon.

I'm Patty and I write about our adult son who has Epilepsy and Autism, who still lives with my husband and me, and who is a package full of many surprises and joys and challenges and TALK! Lots of talking, which creates laughter and some other reactions as well. I also write about how God shows Himself to me in everyday life.

  1. Patty, thank you for sharing. Read the sermon. Unredeemed mankind has not changed. We all so need our Redeemer. We as Believers are called to be lights casting out the darkness. It is definitely a spiritual battle.

    Many years ago, I toured Dachau concentration camp in Germany. It was difficult and emotionally draining. There were 3 chapels in the camp and I went into the Protestant one, where I heard an amazing story. The Chaplin was a volunteer who had been interned in the camp for about 6 years. He was a pastor who spoke out against what Hitler was doing. He was regularly interrogated and tortured. He said he was in despair and wanted to commit suicide. He got a letter from his wife, with an uncensored scripture verse in it. Then another inmate handed him a piece of paper with the same scripture. He said he returned as a volunteer at Dachau as the light of Jesus is brighter than any evil man can do to man. He brought the light of Jesus to a place without hope. We do the same.

    Blessings!

    1. I love the Dachau story! God is so amazing! He’ll never leave us or forsake us. Our world is truly dark but we shouldn’t be surprised or without hope. May we rely on God’s strength in the days ahead. Thanks for commenting!
