There have been many things that are happening that are pulling us all down like a huge magnate. Inflation, war in Ukraine, high crime rates, our southern border, gas prices. All this seems to be on the shoulders of our current president.

______________________________________________________________________________________

In reality it is something that probably would have happened no matter who the president is. Of course some of the things can be avoided, and I wish the president could see that.

Still struggling with arthritis in my right hip. I am taking Tylenol Arthritis pills t but there is still some pain there. I will see a specialist, soon to see if there is something they can do that isn’t surgery. I am told that I am too old for any kind of surgery.

How is your day going. Do you often wish you could just stay in bed all day? I certainly have been there.

Life is not a beautiful rose garden. There are too many thorns that can hurt us.

Lost relationships, overpowering bills to pay, lost job, depression. What can we do to overcome all of this:

  1. One day at a time.
  2. Face the storms, and you will become stronger.
  3. Never, ever, give up!
  4. Pray to God for His help.

___________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

On my last post I talked about prayer.

The future doesn’t look too exciting right now. Wars, Border crisis, inflation skyrocketing, Gas prices soaring. This is enough to makes us want to go hide in a cave.

Living for the moment is getting harder each day. The future doesn’t look all that good.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

So, let’s concentrate on prayer. Pray can change the world. We need to spend daily moments in prayer. We need to learn how to pray, to pray how to learn. When we pray we are at our best.

Here is my thoughts on planning to pray:

  1. Have a prayer plan.
  2. Have a special place to pray.
  3. Schedule your prayer time for every day.
  4. Even have a prayer partner.

______________________________________________________________________________________

This looks like a very simple guide, but it is powerful. If you follow it daily, I guarantee you it will change you life.

God is listening. He hears your prayer. He loves to talk with you. Reach out to Him daily. Your life will be much better.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I have been on a rollercoaster ride. I’m at the age when many physical things happen. They are painful. They are not life threatening at this point. However, the constant pain and suffering is not acceptable.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Now that I have been whining and trying to have a pity party, let’s move n in life.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Lie is not for sissies. There are trials everyday. We need to be patient, and strong. There are ways to overcome the darkside, and it all begins with turning to God.

God knows every hair on our head. He knows what we are going through. He wants the best for us. All we have to do is ask.

Prayer is a very powerful thing. I have seen it change lives many times.

  1. I had a grand nephew somehow live after the doctors said there is no chance he would make it. Even the doctors considered a miracle. He is now 15 years old and going strong.
  2. I had a friend in stage four lung cancer, and she is still live today, several years later.
  3. A friend lost her husband suddenly, and her only way to manage was to turn her live over to God. She is thriving now.

_________________________________________________________________________________

I could go on with many other answered prayers. They are never ending in my life.

Test it yourself. If you are overwhelmed with trials, Turn to God a pray for His intervention. He is listening.

_________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

On December 7th, 1941 The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, and killed several thousands of Americans. I was only two years old at the time, so I didn’t really know what was going on.

Three of my uncles, fought in WWII and two of them received Purple Hearts. Their heroics helped stop the war and our freedom.

I enlisted in 1959 in the Army. I did it to honor my uncles who fought ahead of me. Each of them was a hero to me.

I am proud to have served my country, and I would do it again if I could.

It is getting close to the most important holiday of the year. It is Christmas. The word Christmas means the mass for Christ. During this hectic time many people have completely forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. Christ seems to have disappeared out of their lives during this holiday.

Jesus was born on Christmas day. he became the savior for the world. He paid the supreme price by dying for each of us on the cross. That means you too. Jesus doesn’t hand pick His favorites. He loves ALL of us no matter what our beliefs are.

All we have to do is invite Him into out hearts and we are Christians. You become His child.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I mentioned before that this time of year is very hectic. Do not let the stress of the holiday pull you down like a huge magnate. Keep being positive, and share your joy with others, who are suffering.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Today is Veteran’s Day. I am a veteran from waaaay back. I was in the service from 1959-1962. I am proud to say that I served, and I thank all of you who are serving, or have served. The sacrifice you did for your country is honorable.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

It seems like many people do not appreciate the military and what it does for us. I hate to think what our country would be like if we didn’t have a military. Can you speak German, or Japanese?

The great generation fought hard for our freedoms, and they won. I had three uncles who fought in WWII, against both the Germans, and the Japanese. Two earned the Purple Heart.

__________________________________________________________________________________

It was hard for me to serve. I was a Christian and had feelings about being a conscientious objector. I was raised in a Quaker church that was against going to the military.

Because of me thinking my uncles were heroes, I overcame that feeling and enlisted anyway.

___________________________________________________________________________________

Be sure to thank everyone you know that is a veteran. It will make them feel proud that they served.

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

FOREWORD


STORIES HAVE THEIR own unique way of teaching us things.
When Jesus taught the crowds from Capernaum to Jerusalem,
He chose stories about everyday people in everyday places to
teach us about ourselves and about the God we serve. With their
panoramic perspective, stories give us insight into the essential
matters of life. We learn from the truths embedded in the journey
of others.
In Signs of Hope, Douglas Bolton extracts wisdom from his
personal life experience, mining it for the faith lessons God
has urged his heart to pen for us. In his words, we fi nd simple
answers to the harrowing and the complicated as he shares timely
and powerful lessons on living with hope in the midst of this
challenging age.
Hope refreshes us when we feel overpowered by the world
around us. We observe bleakness in another’s eyes (and sometimes
in our own) and wonder how our peace can be restored. Self-generated resources are inadequate. But when we turn back toward
God, we discover His supply, an unending fountain for us to drink.

The power and richness of stories are themselves a fountain
when flowing with God’s eternal truth. It’s in this spirit that I
recommend the journey Douglas Bolton has arranged for his
readers. His experience of walking many years and miles with the
Lord has infused these pages. May Signs of Hope, with its offering
of refreshment, grow your faith in God and lead you to a closer
walk with Him.

Many People Have a Hard Time with Authority, and Submitting

I missed posting on Monday. My apologizes. Bad hair day.

I can say this is true for almost all of us, we resist authority, and find it hard to submit to others.

We want to choose what is right and what is wrong ourselves. We try to run our own lives without God. We hold off God ourselves. Here are some ideas to overcome that:

  1. We need to re-think our priorities.
  2. We can’t make our own rules. Our own rules can’t handle it.
  3. Be consistent.
  4. Don’t be one way way all week, and then Godly on Sundays.
  5. What we really are before God, is how we should act when no one is looking. ___________________________________________________________________________________

Humility is the key to righteousness. We need to humble ourselves before God and obey Him. We need to acknowledge that He is our authority, and submit to Him.

When we follow God we are free from sin, and free to earn righteousness.

________________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

  9. Walk away from those who try to change your values.
  10. Faith leads to action without fear.
  11. Are there any sins I don’t want to turn over to God?

Giving Into Authority and Summit, is Hard For People.

Giving into authority and submission. is one of the hardest things for people to do. We want to choose what is right and wrong for ourselves. We try to run our own lives.

______________________________________________________________________________________

What we really need to do is submit to the will of God. Being humble is the key. We try to hold off God ourselves.

Here is what we need to do:

  1. Rethink our priorities.
  2. Don’t make our own rules, because our own rules can’t handle it.
  3. Be consistent.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

What we REALLY need to do is how we act before God, is how we should react when no one is looking.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Take you own inventory on your life. Are you submitting to God, or you trying to walk on this earth on your own?

Today I am going to share some quotes I have picked up over the years for you to ponder:

  1. What do I do if a problem comes to me? Nothing! I need to go to God and pray.
  2. Do I think more about myself, or do I think more about God?
  3. God has abundant blessings for us, but the power of Satan is against us.
  4. How much Time do I spend reading God’s Word. Not nearly enough.
  5. A tea cup sitting along a coast line can be filled with water when a wave comes in. But just think how much water there in the ocean. That is how much love God has for us.
  6. Flee the bad things, and seek the righteous ones.
  7. Not everyone in your church is pleasant.
  8. How has God worked in unseen ways in me? What work has He prepared me for?
  9. We need to reach out to those with afflictions to show them ways to rid themselves from them.
  10. What work does God want me to do? What excuses do I use to not do them?
  11. I love my children and my grandchildren, but they are loved much more by God.
  12. There are billions of ways to be wrong, but only one way to be right.
  13. God does not make robots, but we become robots because we program our minds to walk down the path that heads away from God.
  14. We need to set a day aside to worship God through prayers, devotions, and reading the Bible.
  15. God is everywhere. You can be with God when you fish, travel, lie in bed, but to worship Him we should be in His Holy House to worship Him with others.
  16. Pagans can be very religious, but not follow the true God.
  17. There is no such things as a metaphor about same sex marriage from Genesis to Revelations.
  18. In the olden times one goat is sacrificed, and the other is the “Scape Goat,” who is released into the desert.
  19. Satan loves to nip away at us until we are beaten down, and our faith is fading way.
  20. Every person has an assignment from God.
