There is always an answer, and there is with this one, but I will tell you that each separate visit with these men started with an overwhelming amount of burden that we ourselves have placed on ourselves as a whole.
Many people are taking every type of drug in the world, prescription and not, medical or not. (Have you noticed the amount of prescription drug ads on tv? Why is it in our faces so much? Don't you think the Dr's can tell us what drugs we need? Why the programming and conditioning?") Many people are entertaining themselves in bars, or in promiscuous relationships, basing love on sex and not being able to distinguish between the two. Let's give our children protection shots against STD's because we assume that we are a multi-partner society and that our children are going to start between the ages of 11-12. We live in debt and greed, and fight over property when our loved ones die.
Now I'm not judging you, so tear down that wall now before you build it up.
Sometimes we need to throw a little truth in there to allow ourselves to know that the way we are living may not be the way, and that we don't have to continue that direction.
Colossians 1:13-14 tells us For he (God) has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, (Jesus) in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
That's where my story ads value.
Every conversation I had yesterday was that, we are living in a chaotic world, and that everyone has opinions and ideas, laws, and rules, but when you want to know foundation or truth, go back to the one thing that never fails, and that's the Bible, God's word, which never fails.
I hate Politics, but you don't have to go very far to know that we are completely dissatisfied with our current governmental situation. Well, did you vote? Let's take some responsibility. I remember the election well, I didn't vote for our current President, not because he was "not white" but because I didn't agree with his beliefs and my belly and my conscious was screaming NO! I remember going on Facebook and sharing my thoughts and being very loudly disagreed with, and accused of being racist. I smile, because I hate racism of every sort, and anyone that knows me knows it's true. I have an issue with unfair treatment which drives my passion. But when we want something bad enough, we will find away to tear others down if they don't.
I don't understand Science much either, but the big topic in our house and has been for years, is that Pluto is now a planet again. When I went to school, Scientists said, Pluto was a planet, when my children when to school, Pluto wasn't. Boy did we have arguments over that. Well the other day Scientists said, it's a planet again.
My point in the last two paragraphs is certainly not to point fingers at our Presidents or our Scientists, but to point fingers at God. Listen, we need to build each other up, we need to continue to point to truth, to help those that may not know or understand. A Christian is not meant to look like ISIS or like the world. A Christian should look a little strange to you, you should call them "different", "bible thumpers" "holy rollers", you should be able to tell the difference between the world and Christ... You can put the blame on the "one bad cop", the "one bad attorney" "the one bad President" or the "one bad Christian", but until we come together under "one Great God" we will continue to go the same way we are heading.
Sometimes it's ok to stand alone...especially if you are on God's side, he multiplies the two into many....just like loaves of bread and fish.
Give Thanks! Choose you this day, in whom you will serve...as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord!
