Do you ever wonder what happens between the moments? I mean... do you ever think about all the things that are happening around the world even as you take one breath?  There are babies being born, people dieing, a child tripping on a rock and falling over, a student receiving their first A, a young woman being abused, a man in his 25th year of prison for something he never did, someone being stung by a jellyfish, a new couple moving into their first home.  All these things are happening in every moment that we live our lives.

When pondering this, I find it easy to become sad. So many negative things happen around the world in one split second, yet at the same time so many wonderful things are happening. I know it doesn't mean much to mention this, but 

"I wish for one moment I could stop time
and reach out to all the people who
are hurting and give them a glimpse of hope,
a moment of relief, or a touch of grace." 

I wish that the Lord would prevent bad things from happening... unfortunately free will happened first. Even as I am sitting here, typing away, what is happening in the world?  I feel that if I knew, I wouldn't now what to do.  What I have now is faith that the Lord loves His people, and that each of our futures are to be with Him if we love Him and act out in His love enough for us to end up with him.  



Little children, you are from God and have overcome them,
for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world,
and the world listens to them. We are from God.
Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from
God does not listen to us. By this we know the
Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and
whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.
Anyone who does not love does not know God,
because God is love. In this the love of God was
made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son
into the world, so that we might live through him.
10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but
that he loved us and sent his Son to be the
propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us,
we also ought to love one another.12 No one has
ever seen God; if we love one another,
God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.



In love and hope,
Christine

Hi lady,

I really love this post. And I really love your perspective on these things. And keep joy knowing that God has a purpose and reason for all these good and bad things. He has a plan and a future for you and all His creations. He will redeem it all one day. I do not know how, but this is the God who created the heavens and earth, and I do not doubt He can redeem anything He likes. Keep loving and being faithful to His calling for you life.

MISS YOU!

Hi dear,

I love this post and your perspective on these matters. And I love these verse you have written. But keep hope and know God has a reason and purpose in all these things as well, and He has a plan to redeem it all to Him once more. I do not know how, but we are talking about an amazing God who sends huge floods and does amazing things. I do not doubt He knows what He is doing.

I love you and MISS you!

I feel the same way as you. Sometimes you kinda feel helpless for not being able to help people and just watch them feel negative about themselves.

Anyway the pictures are beautiful. I love the flower crown on you. Been long since i am reading blogs. I hope you are doing well! :)
