I was reading in the Bible about the temptatons that Jesus faced with Satan. It was for forty days and nights. I can’t imagine that!

Jesus was hit by the Trifect: alone, tired and hungry.

Satan is the most prolific liar ever. Replace his lies with the truth of God’s Word.

Jesus has taken care of all of our sins in one moment. The moment He died on the cross.

Jesus succeeds where we fail, but on our own we will fail where Jesus has already succeeded.

As we wait for the return of Jesus, Satan can have minor victories in our lives, but he will not have the ultimante victory.

Remember: Our soul needs fuel. You can either learn from the Word, or from the world.

____________________________________________________________

Never let Satan put you up on his wall like a trophy. Fight the darkside with all your heart and pray for God’s help to do it.

_____________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I was hornered to be able to play college football. I was the center for the team. I wasn’t all that big, but I did my job, and blocked to the best of my ability.

I remember my coach pushing us hard. He demanded perfection. It was good for us to have that, but even so, our team was 0-9 in games.

_______________________________________________________

Sounds bad right? But in reality, I have never felt closer to a group of guys than I did then. We faced adversity evey game, but we showed up and played.

________________________________________________________

In real life, are you a blocker or builder?

In football blockers are important, but in life they are not wanted.

Here are some bad points to blockers in real life:

  1. Blockers keep others from reaching thier potential.
  2. Blockers cannot celebrate the success of others.
  3. Blockers look at life through the “me,” lens and not the, “we,” lens.
  4. Blockers criticize easily, and can’t praise.
  5. Blockers uses things to advance themslves, and not others.

__________________________________________________________
We need to unblock others so they can reach their true potential. However, helping others only comes from humility. We need to serve others and not ourselves.

To become a builder, we have to get rid of our pride and selfishness. We should wnat to serve and not be served.

___________________________________________________________

Look at the list of blockers up above again. Which ones do you struggle with the most?

Work on those and be a builder that all others respect, and look to for help.

____________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Satan is getting desparate, because he knows his time is short, and he wants to sabotage your efforts to serve the Lord.

The truth is, the closer we become with Jesus, the more intense our spiritual battles will be. We must be aware of Satan’s schemes.

It is God’s will that everyone will come closer to Jesus than to Satan. But Satan will do everything he can to distract you from following Him.

We need to let God establish our priorites.

Love God-Serve God

If we truly love God we will serve wherever we need to, for example:

  1. Your spouse…God has directed us to love and serve our spouses.
  2. Single? Serve your family and friends. Don’t let anybody distract you.

Knowing the truth doesn’t strengthen you, doing the truth does.

Whoever does the will of God will abide forever.

Don’t do what ever your are doing for yourself. Do it for others.

Back to Satan.. he wants you to feel awful about yourself. He wants to deceive us so we will disobey God. If he succeeds you are on his trophy wall.

To fight all of this we need God’s armor.

When we are attacked by Satan we need let the love of Jesus control us.

We don’t give into fear. We don’t look for the paths of least risistance. We follow Jesus weherever He leads us.

It is a nice sunny day today. It will be the last of some sun for a week or two. We had a great summer here, except it got over a hundred degress six times.

___________________________________________________________

I often wonder how things got to the way it is in our world right now. Pandemic going crazy, politicians attacking each other verbally, and continuous rioting in the big cities.

What is wrong with this picture?

Lots of, not so much fun, things happening. I have decided to be thankful for everything, because it is part of God’s plan. It is hard to accept some things that are happening, but God is working on it.

What to do if you are battling the situation:

  1. Take big breaths when you are getting stressed.
  2. There will be storms come, but they will pass.
  3. Never give in to the darkside, who would love for you to that.
  4. Read the bible for God’s promises. The book is loaded with them.
  5. Go for long walks(if it is sunny,) and release all the negative thoughts in your head.
  6. Keep on keeping on.

I can’t help but cry a river for you right now. I am so sad of the way our country is going. The southern border is wide open. The pandemic is worse than ever. Our military is getting trashed by the far left. (I say that, because I am a veteran.)

It is very hard to postive in our world these days. Even the churches are being attacked.

Our Pastor shared with us that, so called, Americans are trying to close down the churches. They want them to pay outlandish taxes. They want to stop having prayer in schools. They want any reference to God taken down from billboards, etc.

What do they fear? Is being a Christain a sin? Of course not. We are children of God, and He is in charge.

We never have to feel ashamned in what we believe. We never have to agree to let people disrupted our Christain values.

We, as Chrisians, need to be strong, and stand up to the attacks. We need to put on the armor of God and be like Christian soldiers.

__________________________________________________________

How is your life going? Do you feel persecuted for what you believe? Stand bold and strong in your beliefs. That is what is right in God’s eyes. He will reward you for doing that.

__________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Americans are still trapped in Afghanistan. Thousands are coming across our southern border. The pandemic is more powerful than ever.

With all of this happening, why are we here anyway?

It is true that our faith is being challenged more each day. It is hard to be a positive Christian. What good are we?

We all have a purpose designed by God.

It doesn’t matter what you do, God wants you doing it.

The education problems we are having today with the teaching of racism, etc, what good can a teacher do? I am a retired teacher, and I know that if you are a teacher you are very importnat in God’s eyes. He wants you there to nuture, and show compassion for those children. They are with you more than they are with their parents. You could have great influence with them. Thank God He placed you there.

How about a hair dresser. They are at the prime spot, becasue so many clients come and unload on the haidresser while they are getting cut their hair done. You can talk to them to console them and give them hope. Thank God he Placed you there.

How about parents, and grandparents? They are vital to the proper growing up of the children as well. Raise the child in a way that pleases God.

______________________________________________________________________

Never wonder why you are here. No matter what you do, use it to give others hope. Use it to show you care, and that you are loving and compassionate. This is a perfect way to get through to the people who are depressed, and wavering.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

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!

I am battling fatigue and pain. My right Achilles tendon is very sore, and I seem exhausted all the time. I see my physical therapist this afternoon to help me with my foot.

Does the daily routine seem to lead to extreme fatigue for you as well? Do you have aches and pains?

You certainly are not alone.

Many people are in this same battle. They feel depressed and wondering why it is happening to them.

What I try to do is some suggestions I have for you to try as well:

  1. Get out and walk. It may be very short at first, but extend yourself everyday, and you will start feeling more energy, and less fatigue.
  2. Stop allowing negative thoughts to enter you brain. Think of only positive thoughts and that will drive the depression away.
  3. Reach out to others and give the help they need. This is one of my favorite things to do. It makes them feel better, and it lifts you up as well.
  4. Know that God is with you 24/7. He knows what you are going through. Lean on Him to give you peace.
  5. Never, ever, give up! Face your storms and conquer them.

It has been over week since I last posted. Sorry about that. I went with my two sons, and son-in-law fishing last Friday through Sunday. Then doctor’s appointments, and a trip to the coast wiped out the other two days I should have posted.

______________________________________________

Speaking of the fishing trip……..

We went to Diamond Lake, Oregon. It is absolutely my favorite place to go fishing. Beautiful mountains on both sides of the lake, and great fishing. We caught 28 trout in two hours the last time we had been there.

Well, we got to the lake on Friday night. The lake was quiet and beautiful. We ate dinner and did a lot of laughing to telling stories of yester years.

Then it cam Saturday. We rented a very comfortable looking pontoon boat that was big enough for several people.

However, as we went to get the boat it started raining. I mean real hard rain. We decided to go out on the lake anyway and try to fish.

That lasted 45 minutes only. Only one bite, and soaked down to our under ware.

We went back to our cabin and that was it for the whole weekend. It rained hard all the rest of the day Saturday. It did let up towards evening, but then the wind came and turned the lake into solid whitecaps.

So our whole weekend of fishing was for 45 minutes of drenching rain.

_______________________________________________

Has that happened to you? Have you had plans for something and then have it disrupted with something that caused you to have to cancel it?

You certainly aren’t alone. The storms come into our life often, like it did on our fishing trip.

_______________________________________________

We need to face the storms and make something good happen from them. In our case at the lake we had a wonderful time in the cabin watching football, eating great food, and joking a lot. It turned out to be a blessing for me to be with my two sons, and son-in-law. We were much closer by the end of the week.

________________________________________________

This is what you need to do as well. Make storms into special times, by adjusting to it. Let God provide you with a wonderful substitute like it did for my family.

________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

So Many Storms Come, Pray for God’s Help

It is the last sunny day for a few days. Heavy rain is coming, and we are glad for it. Has been a very dry summer, and we have had 100’s of wildfires.

This shows that sometimes storms are wanted.

__________________________________________________

But! Do we like storms in our own lives? I think not! Storms could be lost jobs, lost loved ones, lost sanity, and much more.

The pandemic is causing most of the storms in our lives. So sad to lose a loved ones to this horrible virus. There is nothing anyone can say that makes up for that loss.

How do we fight back to survive?

  1. God is our fortress during our troubling times.
  2. He is always there for us during the bad times and the good times.
  3. We need to cling to His robe and pray for His protection from the storms.
  4. Never, ever, think you are alone in this world.
  5. Be strong and reach out to others who are suffering.

____________________________________________________

That last thought is something I really try to do. I find that when someone is hurting, my idea is to console them. It makes them feel better, and it does me as well.

_____________________________________________________

So, if you are struggling with too many storms in your life, know that God loves you and He knows what is happening to you. Reach out to Him and He will give you peace.

_____________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
