So many terrible things are happening. A 13 month old baby, my moms coworkers baby, was killed. Murdered by her boyfriend. She was a good mom, and the baby sure as hell didn’t deserve it!

I’ve been thinking on this a lot actually. Rather than ranting, (which I know helps sometimes and you really can’t help it other times) why not ask yourself “what can I do?” Though you may feel helpless, find something you are passionate about and DO SOMETHING 🙂 God’s got your back! Like Matthew West says “If not now then when will we see the end to all this pain. It’s not enough to do nothing, it’s time for us to do something” (Do Something by Matthew West) If you haven’t heard that song I highly recommend looking it up 🙂

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the terrible things happening around us to the point that we feel powerless, but the reality is that each of us really can bring about a lot of positive change! Not only that, but I found that when I began volunteering for a cause I feel strongly about, I began to be less pessimistic because, when you are focusing so much on improvement, it becomes a lot harder to only see what is bad 😉

Its easy to get overwhelmed by it all, and it all is terrible. But as I sat sobbing one night over the fact I have been sexually abused, raped, in a violent relationship, molested again, and 2 harassed at work 2x God made one thing clear. Its not his plan for this to happen, but He gave us free will because He loves us and does not want us to be robots. Unfortunately that means some people are going to do terrible things

Even I ponder that question many times. I feel sad about it and I’ve donated in the past, when I could. All I know is that one day things will get better. I still believe and I know the world will change. I can’t cure the world of it’s issues, but I can try to help. According to the faith one day God will bring peace on earth. I wonder why not know and why just in the future. Hope is a beautiful thing, and I never want to go without hope that the world can be better and people can learn to love without borders.

@celby. I wonder that too sometimes. But sometimes waiting produces an even better result than just getting everything now.

Hi Juanita. I know you probably won’t believe me when I say this, but I understand what you’re going through. The thing is it’s not the world thats horrible, it’s the things happening in it that are. What I try to do when I feel like this is think about the good things. I know it sounds lame and like it will do absolutely nothing, but trust me it helps a little. When I hear about a child thats been hurt I pray for the family and think God for keeping my young siblings safe. When I hear about men and women being hurt I think God for my parents. No matter what you just have to try to stay positive. It’s not going to be easy but it might help. So just remember when something bad happens think about the good things in life. No matter how little they are.

Well, the reason is, is because God gave people free will, if he hadn’t, there wouldn’t be death or sin, but we also would only be his puppets, so he gave us free will, and we chose to sin, so he doesn’t let it happen, we chose it, but he does care for us, and his heart aches at the evil in this world, and it’s our job as Christians to stand up against it. God is loving and caring, that’s why he gave us the choice, and free will.
