I haven’t been writing much as of late because JJ, Liam, and I are out of town visiting family. The situation in Afghanistan has been heavy on my heart, however, and I have felt compelled to write about it. Perhaps I’ll write a longer post regarding my thoughts when we get back home next week, but for now, I find comfort in the following words from the song This Is My Father’s World (you can listen to the complete version here–https://youtu.be/32dsCyNCYGE):
This is my Father's world
O let me never forget
That though the wrongs seem oft so strong
God is the Ruler yet
God is the ruler yet, and I’m praying that this truth will become evident to the Afghan people in the days to come and that many will be drawn into a personal relationship with Jesus as a result.
Although I cannot pretend to understand why God is allowing this situation to take place, I am grateful for how He is drawing believers around the world to pray for this nation and do not doubt that He will draw men and women to Him as we pray. So, let’s continue to lift up the Afghan people in prayer and to trust God to work in powerful ways on their behalf.
The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.James 5:16b ESV
