So much pain floods the headlines.
Earthquakes. Christian martyrs. Suicide. Discrimination. Riots.
Natural disasters break our hearts and stir our philanthropy, and that gives me hope when hatred seems to be winning the war.
All the world needs is love, right?
The Bite of Bread is not just about love this week, but it’s about God’s presence, his faithfulness, and our actions in the midst of pain and suffering.
Gather your journal and Bible. Jot down this reading plan.
Time alone. If only ten minutes. Everyday.
Spend time with Wisdom. Journal your thoughts and listen for HIS. Journal those too. You’ll be glad you did.
Which recent headline tragedy has haunted you?
