The attack by the Hamas is horrendous. They did awful things, like decapitating baby’s heads. Tying parents up and torturing them to death in front of their children. 1600 civilians killed, and hundreds held hostage. There are 11 Americans dead, and many are hostages.

It will be interesting how President Biden responds this. I say take no prisoners. They would do the same to us.

I am an old retired soldier that would go help any country if they allowed me to do that. My age is just too old for that to happen.

I have had Drs. appointments everyday this week. I have another one today. I need to remind you that getting old is not for sissies.

Thoughts to ponder:

  1. The gospel is not just for your pastor.
  2. It is not just for the evangelist.
  3. It is for every believer to share.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

That is you and me. We are laymen, but we are also commissioned to share the gospel.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

So much turmoil in our world today. Wars, and rumors of war. Inflation, southern border, corruption, gas prices, and much more. It is hard to be optimistic during these times.

So what can we do to overcome this?

  1. Be strong in your belief.
  2. Never let the darkside overcome you.
  3. Know that God is right there for you holding your hand.
  4. Reach out to others who may be suffering.

I have been doing way too much ranting and I apologize for that. I am so frustrated with how our country is moving in the wrong direction.

I promise to share signs of hope today, which is the title of my blog.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

I am writing a new book called, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the trenches of life.

It is a book written just for my fellow veterans from the military. It reaches out to those who suffer from PTSD, TBI, depression, wounds, etc.

I have had many wonderful endorsements from leaders in the military. One I am especially proud of the following endorsement:

Endorsement

Doug is a veteran turned counselor, blogger, and prayer warrior.  His most recent book provides the ammunition that we need to turn the tide in the battle against PTSD and suicide.

Doug Bolton’s “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life” is a powerful tool in the battle against PTSD. He provides the insights that we…. that you need to stem the tide of hopelessness that many of our veterans and first responders experience.

Doug is a counselor and author, but most importantly an “encourager” who knows the daily pain and discouragement that so many experience.  You can feel Doug walking beside you acknowledging the hurt and depression.  But at the same time that he validates what you are feeling, Doug provides down to earth guidance and encouragement to move you forward.

Most importantly, Doug “walks the talk.”  Whether through his blogs or his leadership in several veteran’s organizations, Doug is engaged in this battle daily.  He is a founding member of the board of directors of Victory for Veterans actively encouraging the Board and senior leaders to raise funds and provide the tools so desperately need in the battle against PTSD.

Jim Jaeger, Brig Gen, USAF ret.

Jim Jaeger is a retired USAF Brigadier General and was the founding President of Arete Incident Response.  He continues to fight cybercrime as Partner and Senior Cyber Strategist at Arete .

General Jaeger read the book and was very impressed.

I will be sharing more endorsements in future posts.

If you suffer with any afflictions like above. Know that God is there for you. He knows your hurts, your disappointments, or fears.

He will guide you down the right path, and hold you in His arms, with love.

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

A friend called me an audiophile this morning. I didn’t know how to receive that. Was it a slam, or a compliment? I looked it up in a dictionary and it is good thing. It is a person who as a great interest in high fidelity reproductions. In other words. I like music.

I had a big sigh of relief when I saw that.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Have you had someone call you a name and you had to look it up in a dictionary? Was you upset until you found out what it meant?

We have all been called something that we may like from time to time.

What should we do about it if it isn’t pleasant?

  1. Remember you were made by a loving God.
  2. Never let others try to label you.
  3. Do not strike back with your own bad words.
  4. Tell them you will pray for them.

I told one guy I would pray for him after he called me a not so nice name, and he blew up saying, “Do not pray for me a get out of my face.!” I turned and started to walk away. As I left I told him I would pray for him anyway.

He didn’t say anymore.

I have been spinning around in circles lately. Too much turmoil in our world. In one country four youths were captured and they were beaten. They also had urine forced down their throats. They turned them loose, but the scares will last forever.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

It is hard to be optimistic when all of this is happening. There are children all over the world being tortured and murdered. It breaks my heart when people think it is OK to do this to children.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Pray for these little ones daily.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Thoughts to ponder:

  1. An idol is anything that absorbs your imagination more than God.
  2. God is the creator of all the universe. He created you.
  3. In the final days, God will judge you.

You are never alone.

We seem to be Facing daily Afflictions. We Often Ask God, “Why me?’

Still struggling with pain. It is hard to face the day when you know pain is around. My right hip is not responding to meds. I have been referred to a PT specialist, and I hope he can do something for me.

____________________________________________________________________________________

How can we overcome the afflictions of life? We often ask God, “Why me?” It is not easy to explain, but I have thoughts on how I handle it:

  1. Take every day one day at a time. I know this is an old thought, but it works for me.
  2. Never let the darkside try to blame it on God. God loves us, and knows what we are going through.
  3. Read the Bible! It is full of love, and compassion.
  4. Help others that are the same boat with you. You helping others soothes the soul and brings a smile to others faces.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Stay strong and rely on the Lord to protect you. He is just a prayer away.

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

There are dangerous and Fearful Times. What Should We do?

As I look out the window here at Sun River, Oregon, I see crews cutting down trees near me. They are huge trees. It is amazing what they can do without too much danger.

Have you ever taken on some projects that were a little dangerous? Dis you fear for your life? Did it make you anxious?

We all face those kinds of days. What to do? How to handle it?

_____________________________________________________________________________________

There are two ways to handle them.

  1. Panic, and scream for help.
  2. Pray for God’s help who is there 24/7 to protect you.

Which one would you choose?

____________________________________________________________________________________

The obvious choice for me is too always depend on God for my help. He has always been there for me during dangerous and fearful times.

I could give you a long list where He has helped me. Most was physical help through afflictions.

____________________________________________________________________________________

Don’t allow fearful events overcome you. Cling to God’s promises like, “I will not forsake you.” Never let the dark side overcome you.

____________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I did some ranting in my last post. Sounds like I thought the world was coming to a horrible end.

I will be more optimistic today.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I am on vacation this week with my family. We are at Sun River, Oregon. A beautiful setting, and lots of fun for everyone.

As I look out the window I see deer grazing. Chipmunks climbing, and people riding their bikes. Perfect weather.

When I see all of this I am thankful for the years I served my country in the military. There isn’t too many countries that have the freedoms that we have. Thank a veteran for that.

Have you had days where you would rather stay in bed all day rather than face the world? I have been there. I won’t go into the reasons I sometimes feel that way, but we need to get past those days.

My way of handling it is pray! I pray to go to help me through the day. I ask him to soften some pain I may be going through. He knows our hurts and disappointments. He loves us, and will answer our prayers.

It seems to me that we are living in a progressively failing world. So much is not going right around our country.

  1. Iran is pushing hard to capture our merchant ships that are not even in their area.
  2. Russia, is still trying to overcome Ukraine. It is a bloody battle.
  3. China is circling Taiwan and getting closer to attacking them.
  4. North Korea is still shotting missiles even thought the US wants them to stop.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

There are four possible wars right there.

__________________________________________________________________________________

In our country there is:

  1. High inflation.
  2. High gas prices.
  3. Grocery bills skyrocketing.
  4. Interest rates are soaring, making it very hard to buy a home.
  5. Norms are collapsing.

___________________________________________________________________________________

It is hard to be optimistic in this kind of environment.

____________________________________________________________________________________

It is time for prayer!! We need to ask God for His intervention. He knows what is going on. He knows things are not all good.

Why does He allow all this to happen? It is because He gave us all choices. We can decide what to do, and then face the consequences later. We need just to put up with our pleas for Him to have mercy on those who love Him.
