Join Veteran SGT Steve McFarland for "Healing Through Faith!" with Warriors for Life (WFL) Virtual Group Support Community Services this Tuesday evening.
Topic: "What Is Our Only Hope? - The Lord Is My Shepherd"
We are faced with a crisis of hope in America today. Fewer people have true hope than at any time in the past. Two or three people have committed suicide since we started gathering, and before we are done, several more will have committed suicide. Someone commits suicide every thirteen minutes, twenty-fours a day, seven days a week, and one out of five is a Veteran. I probably don't have to remind you that Veteran suicide is one of the reasons Warriors For Life was started. Suicide is the ultimate expression of hopelessness. I am a spousal-suicide survivor. and some of our Brothers and Sisters on RallyPoint are suicide-survivors. Why are so many people living without hope?
We are broken people, living in a broken world, and if we are truly honest with ourselves, there is far more brokenness in us than we would like to admit, which is why we act like we are "okay" even when we aren't. We have learned to put on a "happy-face" even when we are crying inside because we don't want those around us to know how broken we are. Only God can heal our brokenness and make us whole again, but we have to trust Him to do what we can't do for ourselves. God, in the person of Jesus Christ, became a man so that He could bring us back into a right-relationship with God and with one another. He IS our ONLY hope.
We often ask "Where was God when...?", and you fill in the blank. We can list a thousand-and-one events when God was seemingly-absent, but was He? If we don't really know who Jesus is, we would be tempted to think of God merely as a detached observer, but we couldn't be farther from the truth.
David also lived in a broken world. He had spent many years running from King Saul before he finally ascended the throne, but in spite of all that he went through, he penned the words of the 23rd Psalm, because he came to understand that God was the only person who provide him the hope and security he craved. What can we learn from David and this great Psalm?
