B Moment, senseless murders

This is a raw and uncut B Moment today.

I have so much on my heart.

I feel like my words can go in so many different directions.

We are staring at these senseless murders; the first occurring in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the other occurring in Falcon Heights, Minnesota.

It rips me apart. It angers me. As an African American mother of three sons, oh my goodness, is this what we are reduced to!

I’m angry. I’m frustrated. I’m hurt.

My seventeen year old son is coming to me with tears in his eyes. He’s just witnessed the fifteen year old son of the man in Baton Rouge who just lost his life in a senseless way break down on national television over the loss of his father.

You feel these vibes coming through, whatever medium you’re listening to, be it the television or the radio, or the internet.

This is very difficult.

My over-arching thought is that a Christian’s work is tough. It feels like it’s never done. But we’re also being challenged to press beyond where we are. I’m telling you, this is what I feel. I’m speaking to you from my heart. But we have to press beyond this and allow God to use us as His Light.

Right now, we need light shone into dark places.

The Words that are keeping me grounded and focused are, “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10 (NIV)

I need to cling to that, to press beyond where my heart is right now.

Share this B Moment as others need to press beyond this too, and be used as God’s light.
