Written during Kavanaugh hearings some time ago, while replacing the duct work under our home as we were getting settled here:
Today men hauled out old grimy ducts from under our house, then replaced them. We will breath better. A hearing today also brought out buried grime, without really clearly clarifying who caused the pain (despite allegations made) in this fallen world. The god of this age (Satan) prowls around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. I think he had a big hand in all this. We needed new ducts. Our nation needs a Redeemer whose blood covers the sins and can bring some healing to those who have been wounded (on both sides). Far too much abuse happens, and people are enslaved to various lusts and addictions. The wages of sin is death. Darkness delights in wounded, broken lives, trauma and suffering. Christ came to heal the brokenhearted and set the captives free. Only He can bring beauty for ashes. Praying for us to turn to the only One with the power to cleanse hearts, forgive sin, and redeem and heal our broken land. God knows. Maybe we need to humble ourselves and seek His face.
