FOOD FOR THOUGHT
We live in a broken world plagued by sin and complex societal issues that can be overwhelming at times. With societal challenges including racism, educational disparities, health crises and homelessness, it is easy to want to withdraw. We may say to ourselves, “it’s all too much. The problem is too big. What role do I play? Where is God?”
In addition to collective brokenness, we also deal with individual sin that attempts to keep us broken and separated from God. Our individual sin can keep us isolated and feeling empty. Broken relationships, anxiety, depression, and fear can consume us, keeping us distracted and hopeless.
Despite how bleak it may look at times, do not lose heart. God desires for our minds, relationships, societal challenges, hope, and peace to be restored. God wants to restore our broken world and build His Kingdom!
