I don't know about you but, what in the world has happened to the month of July? It is gone and here we are in August already.
It seems that the same things that were concerns last month are concerns this month. As I watch the news on TV and read newspapers I shake my head at what I hear and read. All I can think of is, "what the heck?" I continue to do my best to give it to God. The advice I use for myself and I think the best thing to do is to just keep our eyes on Jesus. Don't let the world troubles keep us from doing what God would want us to do. Stay in the scriptures as much as possible to strengthen us in God's way in a crazy world. If you must, turn off the TV and radio. Don't read all the gossip on Facebook and don't let others drag you into an unhealthy conversation. You know the kind. All it does is lead to feeling bad and angry. Do whatever it takes to keep in the peace of Christ.
