Yesterday on Instagram stories, I shared some of my thoughts and feelings about what has been going on lately. It was a very scary thing for me to do because Instagram, (and Facebook) has been a VERY volatile place the past week.
I truly have never seen so much anger, hatred, and bullying in my lifetime. And it has saddened my heart. I have seen very kind, well-meaning instagrammers share their hearts and then get ripped to shreds and bullied in the comments by people who have never met them in real life.
I was silent for a few days to gather my thoughts and pray. And yesterday, I shared from my heart. I put my Instagram stories together on a video to share here on my blog.
My prayer is that it will be received with grace and love.
I asked on Instagram if anyone had any prayer needs to private message me and they did. And I had the honor of praying with them through voice text right on Instagram. So I am asking the same of you. If you have a prayer concern you would like me to pray about, you can leave it in the comments, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Edited to add: I know that I probably don’t even need to say this, but just in case….I would love to hear from you in the comments, but I do want to ask that no insensitive or divisive comments be made. They will be deleted. Thank you.)
I love you guys, and I pray that amidst the chaos in our world, you may experience the Peace that passes all understanding through Christ Jesus.
“My peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it me afraid.” John 14:27
