Have you ever rolled your eyes to the side—and up at the sky—spent a minute, an hour, or even a day trying to figure out why people do certain things, why "you" do certain things, or why life happens the way it does?
I'd like to say I don't, but the truth is I do, and quite often too. You'd think, in this day and time, nothing would surprise me but in all actuality, life on this crazy blue planet is filled with human fails, stupid choices, bad ideas, random thoughts, dull moments, unanswered questions—all of which make you go hmm.
What about my selfie to the right?
Horrible quality photo, taken on a whim, off my phone, in a dark room, a few months back. At this point I couldn't even tell you what I was thinking—but you don't know that, hmm—and yet, I'm using it for this post. You want to know why?
Because when I share the link, to this post, with the world—also known as social media—I know you'll see a picture that may entice you enough to click the link.
And while the photo has some relevance—hence the eye roll—it's not the main reason for what I have to say. I chose an image that would get the most attention because that's the world we live in.
Moral of the story:
LIFE HAPPENS, AND SOME DAYS IT MAKES NO SENSE.
Yesterday morning, I woke up to the tragic news in Orlando, Florida. Innocent people lost their lives, and terrorism was to blame. I didn't care about the details, at that very moment, I begin to pray for the people who were killed and their families. Obviously I didn't know them, but what mattered to me was prayer, and lots of it.
Fast forward a few hours later and my stomach was sickened. This COWARDLY TERRORISTIC ATTACK somehow shifted focus and was now about gay pride. Hollywood starts a trend and middle America follows.
Are you that gullible? This isn't about sexuality, rainbows or nightclubs, that is so irrelevant.
It's about a terroristic attack on our country and innocent people who died. Rather than praying for those affected, the families who are mourning the death of their loved ones and the safety of our future—America's main focus is gay pride, parades and trying to outshine everyone on the internet by posting a better rainbow image. And we wonder why, as a country, we're not taken serious.
Currently, the hashtag #gaysbreaktheinternet is top trending, CASE IN POINT!
Get on your knees and shift focus in the right direction, the only direction; the way, the truth and the light. GOD! Because when you die, America isn't going to save you. The government isn't going to save you. The LGBT community surely isn't going to save you. Hollywood isn't going to save you, nor are your social media followers that you try so hard to please and emulate.
Sad to see that America has no problem—boldly—standing up for gay rights; but standing up for God is carefully orchestrated. What are you afraid of? Losing followers? Losing friends? Being laughed at? Mocked? Ridiculed?
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
Blessed are you! God says it clearly! Blessed are you...
