God is at work everywhere

When I find the violence and suffering of the world overwhelming, I remember that God is at work everywhere. Somewhere on this day, maybe in this hour, parents are welcoming their newborn baby, medicine is being delivered to a place with no permanent hospital, a homeless person is finding shelter, an adult who has never been able to read is sitting down with a tutor, and a patient is healing from a difficult surgery. In some spot on this globe a family is reconciling, someone is making a sacrificial gift to help another person, a prayer warrior is praying, and a troubled spirit is opening to faith. God's beautiful, loving power is at work throughout the world, and we can always hope in God's mercy and grace.
