September 11th – a short devotional

I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:20-23, NIV)

It’s September 11th. Currently, the Devotional Diva posting schedule is Tuesdays and Thursdays. On significant days like this, I never quite know what to publish, to be perfectly honest. It’s not like this is a happy holiday or a gift-giving occasion.

But it deserves some recognition.

Should I post a normal guest story, business as usual? Should I write something really relevant for the day? (What pressure!) Or should I publish nothing?

Isn’t that kind of a dilemma in everyday life as well? I mean, how does the average person recognize the attacks on September 11th?

I know some people do a moment of silence and refrain from social media, which I think is pretty cool. Maybe you’re reading this after the fact because you partook in that tradition!

This year, I decided to not just let a solemn day of remembrance pass by without a word.

Let us pray upon the scripture above. Let us pray for this earth.
