PULSE – ORLANDO

Before I even begin to blog my thoughts, can we just take a moment to step away from Guns, Islam, Religion,Sexuality and any other agenda as there is plenty of time for that. However can we just pause and try to walk a mile in the shoes of the hurt and mourn with those that mourn. This was not just another senseless or tragic incident, we are talking about loss of life. So before I begin can we just take a moment and feel the magnitude of what happened this weekend.

Before seeing the news and clocking onto what was going in Orlando, I remember logging onto my Facebook via my mobile and seeing one of my followers agonising about the fate of a loved one which led me to switch my telly on and straight to the news channel when it became clear what it is she was anxious about.

As I watched the news and events unfold, I couldn’t help it but weep for loved ones lost, for mothers and fathers, somebody’s sister or brother and for souls who probably didn’t anticipate that would be their last day to draw breath. The first thing I did was to pray for all those affected in one way or another as I reflected on on the word of God.

I eventually logged onto my laptop to catch up with the news and just general social media and I was shocked to see some of the horrible things people were saying about all those deceased and affected in that club. Whilst I am not one to make excuses for people’s lifestyle choices, I am certainly one also very aware that the bible commands us to;

Romans 12: 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly.[h] Never be wise in your own sight. 17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honourable in the sight of all.

Yes sometimes the LGBT community may mock us for our beliefs as Christians, but that is no reason for us to retaliate with horrid comments.Seeing what happened in Orlando helped me realise how it is easy to quote or misquote scriptures when calamity strikes but also helped me realise how in those moments we should be even more quick on our feet to extend a hand to help and show love, kindness and most of all compassion.

So for the email I received about why I haven’t written about what happened in Orlando, the answer is simple; I have purposely took a back seat and decided not to be quick to blog my thoughts on what had happened. It is so easy to cast judgement in the midst of calamity without thinking about the effect our speech will have on others.

Seldom do most of us take a back seat with our opinions because in today’s world everyone has a PHD in the school of opinion and we don’t like to hold back when it comes to speaking our mind even when it is important to do so. I so value my decision to stay on the sidelines and to simply observe, taking in the volume of information, misinformation, conjecture, invective, research, analysis, and shockingly genuine love.

Yes, whilst we may differ on theology, ideology, morals or values and any other isms with those whose lives were lost, let us not pretend this post is about compromise because it is not. I am fully aware of what the bible teaches about sin and I am sad that those who perished possibly didn’t get to make right with their maker. However, I am moved by the out pour of LOVE shown by most as compared to the few who decided to throw hideous comments around, because we are called to love and because of this genuine act, we may just heal the hurting and help them come to the truth about Jesus. So instead of spending all day speculating about what is what and who is who and what not, for now let us not.

I would like to leave you all with this thought: No one knows what tomorrow holds or even if it will grace you, so let us live each day as though it were our last and always be prepared so that when that moment comes unexpected, we have made right with our Maker.

Mark 13:33-37

 “Take heed, keep on the alert; for you do not know when the appointed time will come. “It is like a man away on a journey, who upon leaving his house and putting his slaves in charge, assigning to each one his task, also commanded the doorkeeper to stay on the alert. “Therefore, be on the alert–for you do not know when the master of the house is coming, whether in the evening, at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning…….

God Bless you all
