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.

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!

This month is Military appreciation month. As a veteran I am very proud to have served my country. I come from a military family. I had three uncles who fought in WWII. Two of them earned a Purple Heart. I was in the Army and was deployed to Korea. My son was a career soldier and retired as a Colonel.

The theme of the post on this sight are “Ways to survive in an unfriendly world.” I feel that we need to have the military to help us survive. I’m not a war monger that thinks we should fight in every skirmish in the world, but I do think we need to help those who are defenseless, and needing help.

___________________________________________

That said, I want to check in with you. Are you struggling? Do the days seem too long for you? Would you rather sleep in bed all day rather than face the world?

There is much to think about as far as the reason you may be struggling:

  1. The pandemic.
  2. The Ukraine war.
  3. Inflation out of control.
  4. Our southern border over flowing with illegal immigrants.
  5. Gas prices through the roof.

__________________________________________

I know there is more, but I am sure you get the picture. What can we do to overcome all of this stress and Chaos?

  1. Do not watch negative news.
  2. Keep you mind on positive things.
  3. Wear blinders that horses use to block out what is happen around you.
  4. READ THE BIBLE! All of God’s promises are there.
  5. Pray that God will protect you and give you peace.

___________________________________________

Be strong for yourself and for those around you. Never give in to the darkside.

___________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Going to have Botox done in a couple of hours. No, not for beauty, but for a tremor in my left hand. They can now use Botox to calm your tremors to where there isn’t much happening.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Have you needed some special type of treatment to help you survive? Have you had doctors or even friends suggest many things you can do and none of them work?

This is happening to many people these days.

I suggest you pray about this is it is happening to you. God listens and He cares. He can perform miracles for even the smallest thing.

If Jesus can heal everyone for any affliction they have, you know that it can done for you too.

Don’t be shy. Cry out to God and he will take action. It may not be the solution you were looking for, but God knows what is best for each of us.

____________________________________________________________________________________

Suffering is a part of life. Some have more suffering than others. I see so many people I wish I could help in some way to ease their pain, but God knows everything that is going on and deals with suffering.

So, be strong and face the storms of life. God will guide you through them.

I tore a muscle in my chest. My doctor said that because of my age, it will take much longer to heal. Lovely!

I am living with the pain, and taking Tylenol. It seems to help a little.

_____________________________________________

Have you had sudden things happen to you caused you physical and mental pain?

There are many of us like that.

I have some thoughts on how to face the world with this happening to us:

  1. Pain only last for a while, and then it is gone.
  2. Suffering is a part of a Christians life. I am not saying we should suffer as a Christian, but God knows we are suffering and He is writing it down in our book.
  3. Use your pain to help others who are suffering. Helping others helps you with your pain.

The situation in Ukraine is pulling me down like a huge magnate. If I was able, I would be going there to help the people fight.

Many civilians are dying from direct bombing of their homes. This is not an accident. Many are Christians or Jews. Sounds like WWII all over again. Putin has been called the new Hitler and rightfully so.

Please pray daily for peace and protection for all the suffering Ukrainians.

We also need to pray for our own country. We are at a pivotal spot. New decisions by the supreme court can change our country.

________________________________________________

If you are battling depression and anxiety from everything that is happening, be strong in knowing God is with you if you are a Christian. He knows your situation. He knows your pains. Pray for His promises, and love.

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

Some Say it is Bad to Be Rich. Really?

+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 was reading the Bible the other day and had a big awakening. I read Mark Chapter 10. It told about being rich and how that can hard on you. Being rich hard? I had a hard time accepting that until I read the whole chapter.

This chapter is about rich ruler who comes up to Jesus and asks him what He needs to do to be a follower. Jesus told him, “Sell everything you have and give it to the poor and then follow me.”

The ruler looked very sad because he felt he was doing all right things in the eyes of God. Jesus told him different.

Later Jesus said in Mark 10:25 “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the Kingdom of god.”

I came up with some thoughts from this.

  1. We need to give away the things that’s blocking Jesus’ way.
  2. Give away barriers like that new boat, car house; give to the poor.
  3. The one thing you lack is everything you need, and that is Jesus.

___________________________________________

I also thought, “The cross before me and the world behind me.” Which way should I go?

I should follow Jesus and leave the world behind me. We are only here for a short while, and the rest is eternity. Eternity can be with the Lord, or with the dark one. Which one do you choose?

___________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

It is a great day, because I have no negative thoughts floating around in my head.

_____________________________________________

Can God perform miracles? Of course we know He can, but do we really believe that?

It is hard to believe in some things, but we need to believe. There is a verse in the Bible that says, “I believe, help my unbelief.”(Mark 9:24)

The whole chapter is about a man whose son was taken over by demons. The boy would have convulsions, and foam at the mouth. He did this from his birth.

The father cried out to Jesus to save his son because the disciples could not. That made Jesus very upset and He said, “O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you?: (Mark 9:19)

He was talking to His disciples who couldn’t chase the demon away.

Jesus had the father bring his son to Him and he healed the boy right there.

____________________________________________

We need to expect miracles. God can perform many miracles. We need to pray without ceasing that He will do it for our loved ones or ourselves.

He is just a prayer away. He wants to hear from you. Lean on His promises and talk to Him in earnest.

____________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

My take on the Ukraine war.

Russia has lost over 9,000 soldiers in this war. Russian Convoys are stranded because they are out of gas. Tanks are stuck in the mud. Warriors from many other nations are volunteering to help fight with the Ukrainians. Many Russian soldiers are giving up, because they are hungry, and didn’t want to fight in this war.

One Ukrainian pilot personally shot down 6 Russian airplanes.

______________________________________________

Please understand that because of the mass numbers of Russian military, (138,000) it looks hopeless for the Ukrainian people.

They need our prayers.

______________________________________________

I am not feeling all that well today. My back has erupted, and I seem exhausted even after I thought I had a good nights sleep.

Have you had one of those kind of days yourself? Has the turmoil of our world caused your anxiety to skyrocket? I certainly hear you.

I try to remain positive around people. People I talk to need to hear positive things. Smile at them. It is contagious, and you will probably make their day.
_______________________________________________

God hears our prayers, so pray without ceasing. Pray for protection. Pray for peace. Pray our government will make good choices. They are many other things to pray for, so make up your own list.

_______________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Don’t Fear Threats of Man, Rely On God For Comfort

There are far too many threats in our country. People seem to be going crazy. A man drove his truck into a bunch of people walking in a parade. Killing five of them. WHY? He was caught and will spend the rest of his life in prison.

There are many incidents like this. It is spreading.

I am finding, and I am sure you are too, that the Christian life is not easy.

____________________________________________________________________

The word Sovereign means, in complete control. God is sovereign. Why?

  1. He is the creator of all things.
  2. God makes Himself known.
  3. God decides what happens in this world.
  4. We send all of our pleas to a sovereign God.

_____________________________________________________________________

We need to let God use us, and we need to speak with boldness and courage. Will this get us persecuted? Yes, but it is God’s will.

We have our part to do, and God has His part.

I always talk to others about what God has done for me. I do not call them sinners, I just share my life.

One thing I have taken for granted all these years is the Holy Spirit. We all know of God and Jesus, but we forget the final part of the three. The Holy Spirit. When you are a Christian, the Holy Spirit dwells in you, and helps you through the storms. He helps you to say the right things when needed.

The Holy Spirit is God’s presence.

We Need Strong Prayer to Survive in This World

Prayer is very powerful. Things can happen when you Pray. Daniel from the Bible is a shining example of that. He was thrown in a den of lions, and his strong prayer for help from God was answered, by calming the lions and they did not kill him

_______________________________________________________

Have you had to pray for something and God answered you? I have.

In 2001 I was sitting in my Ford Explorer in a highschool parking lot. I was contmeplating ending my life. I finally cried out to God, “I can’t take this anymore. Please help me!” Instantly I felt much clamer, and felt that God was there with me. My life changed completely that day. I went home and wrote my first book called, Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in a Not so Friendly World. It won a national award.

________________________________________________________

How about you? Have you been struggling? Does the world seem to be spinning too fast for you?

PRAY!

God listens. God answers. It may not be the answer you wanted, but God does what He feels is best for you.

Never take on the not so friendly world alone. Lean on God.

There is no authority on this earth that should dictate to you. God is your authority.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, gve up!
