Introspection — what better way to start a week.
A thought to ponder: What if God told you, “You win!”
Psalms 13, David starts with:
This passages in the bible always remind me of my many sexual predators in childhood and beyond. They are the “wicked ones” I’ve known the most. I’ve watched them live out these words that David writes.
It can be very distressing to witness how many of these abusers walk on – seemingly unscathed by their filthy actions. I do believe a very different ending to their story than they do.
David ends that Psalms with:
Justice and accountability will be served, of this I am sure. God is a God of justice. It’s the foundation of His throne. He holds accountable for each of us.
It is sometimes difficult not to stop and look at the lack of justice I’ve seen. My father died and literally got away with murder. His own mouth spoke about the “child molestation” hours before he died. His best friend and accomplice is those days just died last week.
You think that eternity doesn’t hold a reckoning for these actions? If you are a God-fearing person that respects the lessons He left for us through the words of the bible, you have HOPE.
My legs grow weary with the lack of accountability I see, that’s true. It seems sometimes the wicked even gain ground as they move about, mocking their victims through what looks like a successful life.
Don’t be fooled. God isn’t.
I am not sure what God has in store for my future and the future of my children, but I know that it’s good. That is where my hope lives.
