Where is the Love?

What’s wrong with the world, mama

People livin’ like they ain’t got no mamas

When I heard about the sad story of the Fallen 44, I immediately sent a message to a friend who is married to a soldier. I admire her unshakable bravery. How on earth will you be able to sleep soundly at night thinking that your other half is fighting for his dear life to save our country, uncertain if he will return home still alive and kicking? How on earth will you stand the possibility of your husband getting killed in such a very outrageous act of violence? The sacrifice our soldiers and their family should be instilled in every citizens head. Watch reunited soldiers and families in YouTube and you will get teary-eyed. Two words—Heart-melting! If the world is peaceful, then there is no need for them to leave their families. On the other side of the story, there are those who had fallen from fighting for our liberty and safety.They did not only leave their family but their countrymen who are reliant on them.

But if you only have love for your own race

Then you only leave space to discriminate

And to discriminate only generates hate

And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate, yeah

Brutal killing of 44 Special Action Force Members, burning of the Jordan pilot alive, execution of 21 Christians, what’s next? Terrorism. All-out war. Bombings. Non-stop exchange of firings. When will all these things stop? Vengeance. Getting even. There is no end point here. Lives are at stake. The mentality of revenge is the wrong way of attaining justice. For the reason that a life was taken away, life must also be taken from the foes side? And what do we get from it? Can we return back the life that was lost by killing someone else’s life?

Madness is what you demonstrate

And that’s exactly how anger works and operates

Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight

Take control of your mind and meditate

Let your soul gravitate to the love, y’all, y’all

Fulfillment. Fairness. Is that what the Jordan government felt when they launch a bomb to kill a group of ISIS? For sure, ISIS will execute other kidnapped victims and the cycles goes on and on and on.

People killin’, people dyin’

Children hurt and you hear them cryin’

Aren’t these rebels get tired of it? Because I really am sick of watching negative headlines every single day. And if each team is pleased with every victory they achieve in defeating the opponent, they should bear in mind that there are innocent people who are dying to attain the elusive peace for the country. These civilians are the real losers of the game which in the first place, they were not even players! Disturbing stories of innocent children sold, young women raped and beaten, stomach-churning pictures of toddler kicking a severed head of a dead soldier and a boy holding decapitated Syrian soldier’s head is really shocking and alarming. They should be in school, in the playground, not in the warzone. Yet, the ISIS still continue such outrageous acts and they are even increasing in number in all parts of the world.

Father, Father, Father help us

Send some guidance from above

‘Cause people got me, got me questionin

Where is the love (Love)

gOD'S LOVE My heart goes to the 21 Egyptian Christians who were beheaded mercilessly. At the very last minute, they stood up for Christ. They chose to die and now for sure they are sitting next to our Father. A question popped while I was researching about their tragic story. At the time that they were abducted, probably they had prayed for salvation from captivity, right?Because that is what I am going to do if I was in their shoes! However, as we all know, it was not answered.

Hasn’t it entered your mind? Why does God seem silent? Why does he seem absent when He was needed the most? Why did He not respond to their prayers? For sure, people who live in the warzones are always praying for peace. Why does it seem so out of reach? Where is the love? Where is God who is love? God is love

God doesn’t like to see people that He loves to hurt each other. But the problem is we live in a world that is not perfect. And there are things He allow because He has given us freedom to choose for ourselves even though He doesn’t like it.

We cannot solve all jigsaw puzzles to think that it is just a man’s creation. How much more can we fathom the depths of God’s wisdom? For sure, He knows what He is doing. He is good, all the time. He is loving, always! He will fight for us. These wars, these pain, these sufferings just prove to us that this is not our home.

When God seem silent?Trust! When God’s love seem absent?Pray! All these sorrows will come to an end. For He is coming back again. And all these wars will be eradicated. We will conquer because in the very first place, the Alpha and Omega had already won the victory.

Where is love? God, who is love, is in our hearts. But here is the thing,He will dwell there if you had allowed Him to be there.

You know the reason love seems not evident to others? That is because they do not know Him yet.That is why they do not know how to love. Let us pray that they too may know God and learn how to love like Him. Therefore, the secret to world peace is evident—it’s knowing God and allowing God to reside in our hearts.

Must we take for granted the lives that were killed? No, absolutely not. But we should not risk another life as a payment. Let God do the making. Vengeance is His! Our role is to pray for the victims as well as the evildoers and proclaim His words because He is coming near!

REVENGE

One World. One Love. One God.
