Prayer Thoughts for October - Bullying

Bullying Awareness

The birthday camping trip came as a surprise! All were looking forward to the weekend, even the birthday girl who only had a day to prepare! A few days at a National Park, full of camping, hiking, unexpected rainstorms, cookouts, and, of course, s’mores! The car trip was filled with talk of what they were going to eat and the trails they wanted to hike. Several specific trails were picked; some for the views they offered and others for the hiking challenge they offered.  No one expected a missing hiker would change their plans.

October 18, 2019, DAY 294: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR: Nahum 1-3

October 18, 2019

3The Lord is slow to anger but great in power;
    the Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished.
His way is in the whirlwind and the storm,
    and clouds are the dust of his feet.

7The Lord is good,
    a refuge in times of trouble.
He cares for those who trust in him,

(Nahum 1:3, 7, NIV)

The Journey of Life

The Journey 2019: Journey of Life

The class was silent, still reeling from the news of the weekend - an attack that led to dozens of deaths. Instead of continuing with the lesson as planned, the professor had asked the class what they wanted to talk about. Finally, one student burst forth. “This is why I can’t get behind a god, any god! Your God is supposed to be all knowing, loving, kind, caring. Then why does stuff like this happen? He is supposedly all powerful. Why doesn’t He stop it? Why doesn’t He…” “Make the world a better place? A perfect place?” The professor finished the student’s sentence. “He did. He made a perfect place, but humanity rejected it.” “I didn’t reject it!” Another student interrupted. The professor held up his hands, asking the class to calm down. The professor knew he had to handle this situation carefully, and briefly closed his eyes, asking for wisdom in guiding the class.
