This is not my usual type of post, it is however proof that I am human. I confess I don’t have peace inside at the moment. This struggle will probably last for more than a day or even a week. I am not the only one so rattled by the news, so are many others. While my head knows God is in control, my heart has apparently completely forgotten.
I don’t like making this post, this is not enjoyable.
To give you some background, I am an American of Ukrainian descent. My parents escaped Russian occupation and came to America. I am the firstborn here in this country. I learned Ukrainian at home and English off the Television.
To this day, I have more cousins in Ukraine than here in America.
I confess my inner core is disrupted today. More than I expected as I thought I was stronger than this. The invasion of Ukraine is ripping the human part of me into many pieces. Yes, I know in my head that God is still in control (I just told my daughter this!) and I know that in the end, all will be alright.
I could list those with whom I am very disappointed, but that’s not fair to them, or to me. It’s not fair to you the reader, either.
Prayer, please. I want God’s peace to overcome my heart. I know He forgives my anxiety which I cannot control at this moment. I am not alone in this. Many are in the same place as I am, please pray for them as well.
I am far away from the conflict, I will not suffer physically. However, of those onsite, caught in this war, many will suffer. On both sides. There will be many personal losses. Both Russian families and Ukrainian families will undergo pain far beyond what is usual.
Hold both sides up in prayer.
Hold up in prayer the people of neighboring countries that now have proof of how Russian Leadership lies to the world.
Hold up Western leaders and their advisors as all seek a solution. This is not easy on them.
Thank you so much for your concern and prayers.
