SARAH SPEAKS: IN DARK TIMES
We are living in dark times, my people. The word is sadly turning into something else. I don't even know what to say or where to begin. We all know what is going on in the world, racial killings in the United States, Boko Haram in Nigeria, ISIS in Syria, Bombing and natural disasters happening all around which are just a few of the many things going on.
I've never really been one to listen to news for the simple fact that it's too depressing but now it's my profession to stay informed. And each time I see these reports, I just get numb and feel helpless. My heart goes out to the people all around the world facing all these struggles.
I mean it's easy to post on social media about the issues or write about it but what does it accomplish really? We saw what happened with the #Bringbackourgirls campaign for the missing 200 Chibok girls in Nigeria, the world forgot about it after a while. It seems like all we can do is pray and hope for a better tomorrow.
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that"
(Martin Luther King Jr.)
I honestly don't know what I'm trying to say in this post. I just know that I have to say something. My heart goes out to each and every one of you experiencing dark times. Take heart and comfort and don't lose hope because without hope life is meaningless. What I will say is that the end times are near people, turn to God and serve him more than ever. The Bible prophesies in Mark 13 and Mathew 24 have already come and gone.
"For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilence and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of Sorrow."
(Mathew 24: 7-8 NKJV)
