A friend saw the title of this post on a T-shirt. I think I want one.

My Pastor started a new series this Sunday called, the end times. I thought, this could depressing. I was totally wrong.

The end times will end up being a wonderful time if you are a Christian. Think on this:

Everyone who believes will be pulled up into heaven all at once during the rapture. There will be no pain or agony during this moment.

Grace came to you through Jesus dying on the cross. It will come again during the rapture.

____________________________________________________________________________________

If you are not sure if you will be sent during the rapture, do the following:

  1. Repent. Ask God to forgive you.
  2. Return to fellowship at your church, there is so much support for you there.
  3. Remember…no matter how old you are, God is not through with you yet.

___________________________________________________________________________________

Jesus came in as the lamb and he will come back as a lion.

___________________________________________________________________________________

Never think you are beyond being accepted during the rapture. God loves you as you are. Just confess your sins and enjoy the ride.

___________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

We had our home built. It was fun to watch it growling into a beautiful home. That was 22 years ago and we are still here. One thing that I noticed is how much the trees have grown. They were planted as little starts, and now they are 40 feet high.

That reminds me of our life. We are were little starts at one time, and grew up. It is what we grew up into that counts.

______________________________________________________________________________________

You can grow up to be an outstanding citizen who achieved may things, or you can be a drunkard lying in the gutter. Pretty stark comparison, but it happens over and over again.

How do I make sure I am on the right path?

  1. I stay with the truth. God is real, and He is my guide.
  2. I never try to create a new doctrine. the bible is my doctrine.
  3. I could have been that guy drunk in the gutter, but I chose the right path, and I am very proud of the many things I have accomplished.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

How about you? Are you the drunkard, or do you like where you are at? If you do not like where you are at, it is never too late to change. God is always eager to open up to you. He will guide you the rest of the way.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Do you ever get tired of the daily frustrations? I sure do. Wouldn’t life be great if we could wear rose colored glasses?

It seems like we face more walls than clear paths. Everything seems to be a struggle.

Now that I have torn you down terribly, let me share how I make it through each day to fight all of the above:

  1. Never let day get to you. Each day has it ups and down. Go with the flow.
  2. Go for walks every day. That seems to clear my mind, and gives me fresh air.
  3. Sit down and read a book. The Bible is a good one to read.
  4. Remember, God is with you always. He walks with you on your walks. He speaks to you through the Bible. He guides you on your paths.

_____________________________________________

I try to be upbeat all the time. Yes, it is hard sometimes, but when you are always upbeat it rubs off on others.

It is much easier to smile than to try to have a frown all day.

______________________________________________

Face your storms head on. Never back down.

______________________________________________

The thought for the day.

_______________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I can truthfully say that I am over COVID. I can say I am 95% better. I just have bouts with fatigue now and then.

It was a huge struggle. It took almost the whole month of July to get over it.

_____________________________________________

My last post I talked about bitterness. How it can ruin our lives. Well, I have some thoughts on other demons that can destroy us. Let’s compare them to what we should be like:

  1. Bitterness-happiness
  2. angry-joyful
  3. Sad-thankful
  4. disappointed-glad
  5. bad self image-love yourself
  6. Lost-found

______________________________________________

This list can go on and you can add to it if you want. But, you can see we have choices in our lives. We can either self-destruct or give praises.

Which choice to see for yourself above?

If you can’t choice the second choice on all of them, take inventory and see why. Ask God to help you through your storms and hurts. He is there for you 24/7.

_______________________________________________

Another thought for today:

Take the im off of impossible and everything is possible.

_______________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Some Have Been Betrayed, and are Bitter Because of it

Some of you have been betrayed, and you feel bitter. You aren’t alone. I have been there myself. You think you are a victim. We want to know how we can get justice. We live with resentment, which is recalling the event.

_____________________________________________

Don’t sit there and lick your wounds. Get up and praise God for the day!

  1. Make sure that no one misses your grace.
  2. Make sure no bitter roots spring up.
  3. Make sure that no one is immoral, or worshiping other gods.

We have to be careful, because the seeds of bitterness makes us by-pass the cross. The seed of bitterness hurts us. Bitterness harbors hostility. There is devastation with bitterness.

People who are bitter:

  1. Are very sensitive.
  2. Have no gratitude.
  3. Harshly criticizes others.
  4. Hold grudges.
  5. Have mood swings.

So how do we get rid of bitterness?

  1. Repent and confess before God. Open your heart.
  2. Focus on God’s grace towards you.
  3. Replace your bitterness with the pursuit of holiness.

Final thought:

Death’s power over me is as dead as my sin.

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.

Sorry I missed Wednesday. Not feeling all that well right now.

I have made a list of things I need to follow through on offering spiritual sacrifices:

  1. Worship.
  2. Pray.
  3. Encourage.
  4. Comfort.
  5. Proclaim.

Each of those are a priority for those who want to reach out to help those who are suffering, and need help for themselves.

A. Worship-Hebrews 13:15

B. Prayer-I Thessalonians 5:5:16-18

C. Sharing-Hebrews Philippians 2:1

D. Encouraging-Hebrews 3:13

E. Comfort-2Corinthians 1:3-6

F. Proclaim- I Peter 2:9

____________________________________________

  1. Worship-Therefore, let us continually offer a sacrifice of praise.
  2. Prayer-Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances.
  3. Sharing-Command them to do good, to be good in reach deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.
  4. Encouraging-But encourage one another daily.
  5. Comfort-Trust that you have not failed the test.
  6. Proclaim-Praise Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.

Today is Memorial Day. A day where we honor those who gave their all to protect our country. It is fitting to say thank you to every veteran also you see today and in the future. I am a veteran myself and am proud I could serve.

_____________________________________________

I am going to do some rambling today. First I want to talk about Jesus feeding 5,000 people with one basket of fish and bread. He said, “We need to feed all of these people, who has food to share? Well, with 5,000 people there you know many had food with them to feed their children or themselves. None one stepped up.

Finally a little boy came up with a basket of two fish and a loaf of bread and said, “This is all I have Lord, but maybe it will help.” Jesus smiled at him and he started feeding all the people out of that one little basket. He kept reaching in and pulling out fish and bread.

The faith of a little child. We all need that.

____________________________________________

Now I am going to really shift gears and share some things I have learned from reading the Bible. These are negative words found in the Bible and their meaning:

1.Deceit-The act of lying or cheating.

2. Malice- Wishing harm on someone else.

3. Hypocrisy- A person who pretend to be different or better than he really is.

4. Envy- A feeling of wanting what someone else has.

5. Slander- A false statement or statements made to hurt ones reputation.

______________________________________________

General thoughts

  1. Read God’s Word.
  2. Ask..What do I need to get rid of?
  3. Who can I share with about God?
  4. Families are valuable.

_______________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

“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!

Being Impatient is Something We All Struggle With

_____________________________________________

Have you ever had a time when you couldn’t wait? Was there something you really wanted, but it hadn’t come yet. We have all been there and done that.

  1. We wait for the right relationship.
  2. We want our careers to be much better. NOW!

Being impatient can happen to us as Christians as well. We want our prayers to be answered fast. We pray for peace and it doesn’t happen.

___________________________________________

We need to regroup and remember that God is in charge. He knows our needs, He hears our wants. He answers prayer for what He feels is best for us. Wants and needs are totally different things. God know our needs and waits on our wants.

One thing we never have to be impatient for is the reading the Bible. The Word of God lasts forever. Even though there are many translations God’s Word never changes.

I just went outside to look at our roses. There are many buds ready to open up[.God gave those to me to see. But even to flowers fade and die away. God’s love never fades. His love is sincere for us forever.

_________________________________________

We need to realize that everything we have was given to us by God. That is why I never hesitate to tithe at church. The money was all God’s in the first place.

___________________________________________

My thoughts are…Take everything Lord. It is yours.

___________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
