It’s been twelve years. I remember sitting here in my office when it happened. I was thinking to myself as I watched the whole thing unfold that I must be in a dream, but as the day went on I realized I wasn’t.
I post this just as a reminder to myself never to forget those who perished and the many who were physically and emotionally scared by the actions of men doing something morally evil. To anyone who doesn’t believe in moral evil I challenge them to describe what happened on 9/11/2001.
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others
better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but
also to the interests of others.”- Philippians
In this day and age it is hard to imagine people looking out for each other. I keep
hearing things like you got to look out for yourself, get your piece of the pie and
get what you deserve. Well since what I ‘deserve’ is death from my sin I am thankful
that God had a way better plan. I know I am no better than anyone else on this earth
and since we are all in the same boat let us look out for each other. We all should
have the common interest of getting right with God.
“Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.”- Psalm
Great peace and a solid walk require a great love for God and his commands. If I choose
to love God’s law I will see both of those in my life. Lord God teach me today and
everyday to love your law. I know that I do not always follow your law and I ask for
“When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your love, O LORD, supported me. When anxiety
was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.”- Psalm
After having a couple depressing days this verse really reminded me of the joy God
brings into my life each day. Lord please help me whenever my feet slip and help me
to remember how beautiful they are each day.
– In everyday language depression refers to any downturn in mood, which may be relatively
transitory and perhaps due to something trivial. This is differentiated from Clinical
depression which is marked by symptoms that last two weeks or more and are so severe
that they interfere with daily living.
Today I feel depressed. I don’t really know how to explain what I fell but I just
feel that way. I often wonder if Jesus got depressed. I don’t know what else to add
to this post except that I hope this never turns into Clinical Depression.
