CN: war, trauma
How do I write that my older brother could go to war? How do I write that I cannot comfort my godchildren, wipe their tears away and protect them from the injustice now taking place? How can I write that the peace in which my goddaughter believes does not exist?
Imagine the place you have always called home, the place where you planned to start a family, being bombed into terror and destruction. This is what I’m experiencing. And I am still struggling to believe it.
The country I proudly call my home is Ukraine. Let us not call this a ‘crisis’. Let us open our eyes to see that this is nothing short of a re-invasion by one aggressor. People are dying, families are being destroyed. Children, women and men are being killed every day. For what? For a rich man…

Not even night
brings relief from the heat.
What have we done
when pools boil
in lands where
forests have been slain?
Climates gone haywire
ice caps melting
waves of water wash
life away, pollution the norm.
What have we done?
Across the globe, people
gather to find solutions
to the destruction greed
has caused. Join their voice
start the change wherever you live.
Plant a tree, save water
stop buying that which
contributes to the loss
of this earth’s resources.
Each of us can make a difference.

Too many people have forgotten what went wrong in the early days of our universe, how the first man rebelled against God and how God gave them the right to take care of the things themselves.
Now the same people often blame God for the difficult times they get, not seeing that they themselves are at the cause of most of the problems in this world.
Coming closer to the times of the Greater Agony, we should make sure that more people come to recognise how Jesus is the way to God and to salvation, him having it made possible to enter the small gate, to a better world where there shall be no hate or war, but only place for peace and happiness.
Habakkuk 1:3 Why make me look at injustice? Why tolerate wrongdoing? Destruction & violence strife, & conflict
- Who isn’t totally frustrated & deeply concerned by what we see & read in the news every single day?
- How often do we begin to lose hope when we do not see immediate relief from our circumstances?
- God commanding us to look around us to see where He is working.
- God controlling all things for the ultimate perfect good of His children.
Through Jesus' Love
Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrongdoing? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and conflict abounds.
In this passage, Habakkuk is crying out to God in frustration because of the things he is seeing in the society of his day. Doesn’t this passage sound as if it could have been written today? Who isn’t totally frustrated and deeply concerned by what we see and read in the news every single day?
Perhaps this frustration is carrying over into our own personal lives. Who among us hasn’t cried out to God for relief from the struggles of work, relationships, addictions, afflictions or even sin itself? How often do we begin to lose hope when we do not see immediate relief from our circumstances?
God has a response for us just as he had for Habakkuk when He said, “Look among…
