I’ve been wondering, for a while, “what is going on!!!”
You have to love Facebook… Everyone’s business; all happily shared. I’m guilty of it. I do try and keep the really personal stuff off… I guess social media is the big difference between when I grew up and now. Maybe nothing has changed?? Maybe it’s just that now everyone puts it on FACEBOOK!?!!
For months, maybe even a year +, I have reading about all the young people who have killed themselves or would like to. Over anything and everything. It has been bothering me for just as long. When did everything become so hopelesS?? I know there has always been things going on with SOME people, it just seems like the numbers are growing…
This is where, perhaps, I have been nieve all this time. When I was in school there was no facebook so my friends, and others from school, weren’t posting about how hopeless their lives were and how broken hearted and damaged they were…
Perhaps the sadness has been there the whole time??
~Fighting must be our last resort, forgiveness our first. Just think where we would be if Jesus had fought his persecutors instead of forgiving them… We are not measured by how well we fight, but by how well we are able to forgive.~
We had bullies at school. People picked on people. It sucked (for the lack of a better word). It was not a reason to talk about beating people up or bragging after it happened. Sure, there is that small group that wants to see the fight, but those aren’t friends. Those are drama seeking teenagers. They aren’t going to be anymore a friend after the fight than before…
It was definitely no reason to kill yourself. An ignorant teenager running their mouth is just that…an ignorant teenager. Let it slide and move on. No beating them up; no ending life. Some day we are out of school and out of each others hair. Learn and move forward.
I fear that more and more of us are seeking approval from all the WRONG places. I fear, even more, that it will continue… It’s a downward slide with no uphill climbs insight… Or if we do come to the climbs, they seems “to hard”.
***McCrazy Daily Lesson: God always loves us and is always with us. Things of this world should not have such effects on us.***
Romans 12:2 ~ Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will
~I pray, tonight, for the healing of all the hurting hearts. Amen.~
