It has been a difficult and emotional week. My heart is saddened at the tragic and unnecessary loss of life. Alton Sterling and Philando Castille should still be alive. I continue to pray and wrestle with God about these and other senseless killings.
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
However, it is the flesh and blood that is killing Black men and boys. How do we effect change and combat the powers at hand? God I know you have established the governing authorities.(Romans 13:1) You are sovereign and your will is perfect. It still hurts, we are hurting! Please help us to understand and trust your plan.
