When negativity bombards the air waves, the best thing you can do is disconnect, unplug from a world that appears to be falling apart. Unless you do, you might be swayed to join in the blame game, casting stones instead of developing solutions for these problems. However, the moment you allow silence to draw near, you will find the lone source of hope.
It’s sad to see grown adults act like children throwing a tantrum on television. In the absence of real leadership, kids follow in the footsteps of their parents, thinking this is normal behavior. This isn’t the America that I remember, the place where I grew up. Instead I see souls who have given up, become dejected and are now filled with bitterness.
Once you escape voices of the disenfranchised, beyond the sunrise and sunset, you will find one who is worthy to be praised, Psalm 113:3. Like the words of David in his days of doubt, the Lord was his rock, providing a place where he could stand, Psalm 40:1-3. The next time the media causes you to become depressed, just turn it off. When you do, turn your eyes toward heaven, for this is the only place you will find the lone source of hope.
