One of Those Weeks




It's been one of those weeks.




When you don't know which way is up as it all goes down. 

When you think about it as you go to asleep and when you wake up. 


When you want it all to stop and you want new beginnings. 


When you believe and doubt.


When you want to be right-thinking, not wrong-thinking.

When you think long and feel deep.

When you ask, Who's right? Who's wrong? Do I know? 

When you hate politics.





(When you think about the Muslims who lived next door, but you only ever waved.)

When the news makes you sick—except for the hope.


When you hate war and terror.

When you are supposed to love but it's hard.

When you want to protect and you want to reach out. When you want to do both. (Can't we do both?)


When you know Jesus was right about trouble in the world.

When you hang on to His words, “I have overcome.”*

When you hang on to His best word: love.


*John 16:33 NIV
