The Bible says that when you are weak, then you are strong. Doesn’t sound right does it?

It is true though. When we, as Christians are down and out, we turn to God and He gives us strength.

Thoughts:

  1. God doesn’t choose the few who are qualified, he Qualifies the the few that He chooses. (Peter, David, Paul)
  2. We need to grow completely dependent on God.
  3. Know that you have been called by God to do greatness.
  4. Truth faith will not happen without facts to go by.
  5. True faith takes us beyond mere facts to trust.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Not a Very uplifting title today, but unfortunately it is true. We face storms every day. I have some thoughts that we as Christians need to be aware of:

  1. Be prepared to suffer.
  2. Rejoice in suffering. You are sharing with jesus.
  3. The Bible says suffering is a gift.
  4. Suffering for Jesus brings future glory.
  5. Let suffering purify your heart.
  6. Be more concerned for God’s glory than for your relief.
  7. You are never alone in your suffering.
  8. Entrust yourself to God.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

The reason I am approaching this post with these thoughts is that there is a growing dislike for the church. I have had people tell me that it is wrong that the church doesn’t pay taxes. I have had others think that Christians are “stuckup,” and look down on others. Of course none of this is true, and we need to be strong in these attacks. We don’t need to get angry, but be firm in our beliefs.

________________________________________________________________________________________

How are you doing. Are you strong in your belief? Is it hard to continue your faith? Remember, Jesus paid the supreme sacrifice. He went through more torture we can imagine, and He died for us. The little harassments that we get is nothing compared to what He did for us.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken,

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Feeling a little blue today. I want things to happen and everything is very slow. It happens to all of us. We want something yesterday, not a week from now.

I need to relax and know that God has a plan that is on His schedule not mine.

___________________________________________

Have you been there? Do you want something now, but it isn’t happening? You certainly are not alone. I can hear the people saying, I want a new car! That boat should be mine! I want a new home! The list goes on and on.

You know what stops me in my tracks? I think of the people of Ukraine who just want peace, and return to normal without anyone else dying.

___________________________________________

So simple and much needed. Why can’t people just get along instead of fighting for more power?

___________________________________________

Remember…never give in to the darkside! Time heals all wants and wounds. You will get what you need to survive. That is all we should be asking for.

___________________________________________

Be a leader in helping others who are fighting depression, because they feel they want more and don’t have it. Share with them that God has a plan for them and it may take time.

__________________________________________

God be with you and give you peace. May His light shine upon you.

__________________________________________

Remember:

You are not alone.

You are not forsaken.

You are not unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Sorry I missed a couple of posts. I was in the hospital.

Here is the whole story…

I started having dark stools. I mean pitch black. I called the gastro clinic, and tried to make an appointment. The lady that answered looked for some openings and told me it would be a least a month out to get an appointment. She then told me that she would put me on long a waiting list, and hope for an opening would come from a cancelation.

I thought it would be dangerous to wait that long and was checking other cities for their gastro people.

Before I could make an appointment, the same lady called me back and said there was a cancelation. THAT HAD TO BE GOD!!

I got in to a PA lady, and she told me that I needed to go to the ER. I asked why. She said it would take to long to treat me there.

So, my wife and I went to the ER. When we got there the waiting was pretty light. It still took us three hours to get in.

I got in and a lady doctor came in and asked me questions, and said turn over. She whipped my rear and walked out. (Embarrassing moment.)

They decided I needed to have the resident gastro doctor come in to see me. He did come in and asked a bunch of questions. He decided I needed to have him look inside me, and that would happen within the next hour.

The time came and they sent me to la-la land. When I woke up they told me that I had four polyps in my stomach that was causing the bleeding. They took them all out and said I should be OK.

They kept me over night to make sure that it was success. My next “sit down,” showed a beautiful brown stool.

I was able to go home later that day.

_________________________________________________________________________________

This was pretty traumatic for me. This is because they told me what it could be before they did the procedure. I didn’t like any of the choices.

Colon cancer

Stomach cancer

Ulcer

__________________________________________________________________________________

It was none of the above..

It was that the polyps were bleeding.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Have you had something similar to this? Have you wondered if you were going to be OK?

FEAR NOT!! I have no question in my mind that God was in charge in my situation.

  1. a canceled appointment the same day I called? Impossible!
  2. They found nothing from their scary list? Amazing!
  3. The quick recovery? Thank you Lord!

God made everything work for me, and He will for you too. You just have to believe He will.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Never think everything is lost. God is right there with you. He will guide you through the storms.

I always say, 99% of what we worry about never happens. Give the rest to God.

“One day older and deeper in debt.” Those lyrics from a country western song fits perfectly in our world today.

  1. Inflation is running wild.
  2. Gas prices are soaring.
  3. Food prices are skyrocketing.
  4. The pandemic is causing many to look for ways to pay for it.

__________________________________________

How can we survive in this kind of world?

The simple answer is that God even feeds the little sparrows. Don’t you think He will take care of us?

In my early days of marriage we were so poor that we had to turn the oven on to help heat the house. We were not sure we was going to make it until the next paycheck.

Somehow money kept coming in that we didn’t expect. It paid the bills, and kept us fed.

___________________________________________

God is there for you. He knows your problems. He knows you are struggling. Never feel you have been abandoned by God. He will never forsake you or turn hIs back on you.

___________________________________________

Never let the darkside convince you that all is lost. Look to the light of Jesus. Pray for protection from poverty, and worries.

___________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Pray For God’s Help When Sickness Comes Into Your Life

My wife just got home, and she is sick. Prayers would be nice.

____________________________________________

Have you had sickness in your family lately? Did it worry you alot lot like I am worrying right now.

My wife has too many of the bad symptoms for the virus. I made her lay down, and I have the test kit to check to see if she has it.

____________________________________________

God just reminded me that 99% of what we worry about never happens. He wants me to turn my worries over to Him.

I have a chapter in my first book called, “Worry is the dark room where negatives are developed.” That is so fitting for me right now.

I need to be calm and trust God to care for my wife. He knows what is going on and I need to turn her situation over to Him.

____________________________________________

Never think God doesn’t want to listen. He just needs us to reach out to Him for help and He will be there for us.

____________________________________________

My thoughts are…pray always, and without ceasing. Paul tells us that.

____________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

We have so much turmoil in our lives these Days. Nothing we can’t handle right? Maybe!

We live by not seeing, but trusting and hearing.

_____________________________________________

  • Things happening in our world today are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
  • Light Affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond any comparison.
  • We all have hope, joy, and faith.

You will have tribulations in this world.

  1. Our trials are temporary.
  2. God will protect, confirm, strengthen, and establish us.
  3. Our trials refines us.

_____________________________________________

Where do pain and suffering come from?

  • Some comes from our own decisions.
  • Some comes from living in a fallen world.
  • Some comes from the discipline from God who loves us.
  • All this is the ultimate strengthening of faith.

______________________________________________

Cling to all of the promises of God. Be Strong and resist the darkside.

______________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

6 Ways to Cope in This Not So Friendly World

+If you like what you see, please subscribe at the top of this page where it says, “subscribe.” When you do, all future posts will come directly to your inbox. Also, if you know some else who could benefit from this site, please let them know.

_____________________________________________

I am going to concentrate on you and I today and not the rest of the world. There is just too much turmoil to deal with out there.

Why do we get sucked into fear? Why have we allowed negative thoughts to enter our minds?

This is something we need to deal with. We need to look at the days in a different way.

___________________________________________

Here is what I am trying to do to cope in this not so friendly world:

  1. You have heard that we need to live one day at a time. Well, in this day and age we have to live one minute at a time.
  2. Stop watching the worldly news.
  3. Concentrate on your family and friends.
  4. Go for long walks, and do not think of anything negative. You will come home refreshed.
  5. Read positive books. The Bible is a good start.
  6. Never say, “There was nothing I could do.” There is always something you could do.

__________________________________________

Of course, we always need to lean on God for His help. He is there for us wherever we are and even knows the hairs on our head. Lean on Him for strength.

___________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

What a world we live in! Wars and rumors of wars. A pandemic taking many lives. A severely divided country, and much more. God has it all planned, and all the worrying we can muster will not change that.

______________________________________________

I would rather take care of those around me. I have reached an age that is getting difficult, but I will not waver until my last breath!

______________________________________________

The war in Ukraine is devastating, and horrific. However, what it has done is united many countries together. This is the most unity we have had in years and years.

This could be God’s plan for us. The Bible refers to the great enemy of Gog. Today that would be Russia. According to that same Bible they will be destroyed.

Worrying should not be in our lives. Things will be amazingly wonderful in the end. The shortest verse in the Bible is, FEAR NOT!

Cling to God’s promises and be strong!

Great Faith is Believing We Are Not Worthy

You look at that title and go WHAT? If I am not worthy, how can I have good faith? Read on.

Jesus had just finished His sermon on the mount. It was grueling and long. He was very tired. As He was heading away, a Centurion came up to Him and begged him to help his servant who was very ill and about to die.

This doesn’t sound like a true Centurion. They were ruthless. They found joy in torturing people. They killed many.

Jesus stopped to listen. He then said, “I will come and heal you servant.” The Centurion told Him. “I am not worthy of you to come to my home. Just say it and he will be healed.”

Jesus was astounded by this man’s faith. He told every one about him. A man had such strong faith that He knew that Jesus was capable to just saying his servant was healed that it would happen.

The Centurion thought he was not worthy and yet he had great faith.

_______________________________________________

More thought on great faith…

  1. Great faith looks beyond ourselves to help others.
  2. Great faith asks for less.

_______________________________________________

Do you have great faith? Do you know Jesus can do anything in your life? Be strong and rely on Him to walk with you and guide you through this not so friendly world.

________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
