When I heard about the tragic events in Syria, and the debate over whether or not America should respond by military strike, I was troubled.
Being such a complex issue, one wants to be sure they have all the facts straight. I know how I feel about the issue personally, but I also know that God governs with greater intelligence, wisdom, justice, mercy, and love than I can.
I pray to see that God is in control and that God governs us with reason. The divine is so much higher than mortal wills and emotions.
One can never be afraid when working towards a decision that is the result of wisdom, integrity and grace. Whatever direction is received through divine wisdom — and reflects more of the qualities of the Kingdom of Heaven such as grace, peace, and love — can be followed fearlessly.
As I follow this issue on CSMonitor.com, I continue to pray to know that regardless of the human outcome, God’s love, compassion and health-giving power can be seen and felt by all.
