I am at the Oregon coast. Spending a few days to try to relax. It’s working. Beautiful sunsets, and great restaurants.

______________________________________________________________________________________

It seems to me That this country I going in the wrong direction. Everything is off from where it should be, High inflation, gas, groceries, restaurant prices. Then there is the border crises, the war in Ukraine, and it goes on and on.

______________________________________________________________________________________

I know, it seems like I am whining, but I love my country. I am a veteran who served, and want what is best for our country. That isn’t happening right now.

______________________________________________________________________________________

I must be active, and share my dislike for what is going on. I need to write my congressmen and women. Never sit on your couch and allow the waves to come in over your head.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Always be strong in your beliefs. Honor God, because as we all know, He is in charge. Pray for His wisdom in your life. Seek His promises. It seems He is allowing too much pain, but in reality He has a plan for us, and we must be patient and wait.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

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!

Last week I went to four doctor’s appointments. FOUR! I wish I could go to Walmart and buy me a new body!

______________________________________________________________________________________

Do you feel age creeping upon you? Does it seem harder to do some things? I certainly hear you.

What does all this mean. My top ten thoughts….

  1. I am still above the daisies.
  2. People understand me when I repeat myself.
  3. Aging is good excuse to miss out on some yard work.
  4. Your children start calling you “Old man.”
  5. You just can’t find that watch you are looking for.
  6. You can watch the same TV shows, and not remember the first time you watched it.
  7. Tying shoes gets very hard.
  8. I used to walk, now I stroll.
  9. Driving is now not my favorite thing to do.
  10. Naps are wonderful.

______________________________________________________________________________________

You can see that this is the way I handle my aging. Humor!! It is not the end of the world to get older, and the alternative is not good.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Enjoy your life. You only do it once. The good news is that your getting another day closer to being with the Lord. I’m ready.

________________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

______________________________________________________________________________________

Does it sometimes seem like things are one-sided? Do you love someone, but don’t feel their love back to you?

There is one person who loves you forever. That is God.

______________________________________________________________________________________

We have this minds set that we need to love this world and what it has for us. If we do there is no room for God.

What are the loves of the world?

  1. Desires of the flesh.
  2. Desires of the eyes.
  3. Pride of our lives.

How do we block out wrong desires?

  1. Spend time thinking about God.
  2. Be willing to part with your stuff.
  3. Be satisfied with what you have.
  4. Serve more than consume.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I John 2: 15-17 says…. 15 Do not love the world. If anyone love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For the all that is in the world-the desires of the flesh, and of the eyes and pride of life- is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

That says it like it is, and should be.

Always serve the Lord, God, and your days will be bountiful with much joy.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I have had days when I seem to be going in circles. I think one thing and seem to do the opposite.

Examples:

  1. I sometimes say you ALWAYS do this or that. When I should be saying I am glad that you do that.
  2. I will love you FOREVER, but then there are days I become angry.
  3. You keep doing this EVERYTIME. Instead of why do you do this every time?
  4. You are CONSTANTLY pushing me farther than I want to go. I need to think that it is because they want me to do better.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Have you been there. Do you have to use absolutes to describe your live?

  1. Always-never.
  2. Forever-seldom
  3. Every time- not so often.
  4. Constantly-once and a while.

______________________________________________________________________________________

You never…you always… aren’t positive words to use. Think of what you are going to say before you speak. Don’t try to intiminant someone. A softer voice goes a long way in a conversation.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Lean on God and the Holy Spirit to guide your conversations. They will help you to come across as an understanding and loving person.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up.

I lost a couple of battles, but won the war. I am now clear of COVID-19.

I had some scars from it. I was told that I have lost hearing in my left ear. The doctor thinks it may come out of that though.

I had a horrible iron reading from a blood test I took. The high is not supposed to be over 300, mine is 752. That could cause huge damage to my liver. I did an ultra sound yesterday and I am OK for now.

Some wonderful news is that I had A-fib for years, but I had testing this week and the girl said I was back in regular beat since July 24th.

The COVID virus can cause some serious side effects, but can help you on occasion.

_____________________________________________

Have you had some struggles with you health? Have you had a doctor tell you some bad news?

There are many people like that.

So what can we do to counter attack all of this?

  1. 99% of what we worry about never happens. Give the rest to God.
  2. Be strong and help others who are going through the same things.
  3. Know that God is with you 24/7.
  4. Persevere through the storms of life.

__________________________________________

I know it can be hard at times. I have been there, but your strong example to others will go a long way in their lives.

Be the helper.

Be the supporter.

Be the calmer.

You are never alone.

We Don’t Talk About Sin, But Maybe We Should

______________________________________________

Yes, we do not talk about sin. It is hard to tell someone they are sinning. It is hard to hear from someone that you are sinning.

_______________________________________________

However, we need to confront those who have wavered. We are all tempted. So is a temptation a sin? No, only if you give into the temptation. Jesus, was tempted.

Share with others that you think need help, and be ready to bear your own sins.

God gives us the power and confidence to face others who are sinning. God also wakes us up to others who tell us we are sinning.

Three things we need to remember:

  1. We should always walk in the spirit.
  2. We are accountable to each other.
  3. We are accountable to God.

Go and sin no more is what Jesus told the woman. Hear Him speak to you in the same way.

Take Care of Yourself During the Tremendously Heat

I am slowly getting my strength back from a bout with COVID. It has been a battle, but the last of the symptoms seem to be going away.

_____________________________________________

The temperature has been sky rocketing the last few days. It was 101 yesterday, and it will be 99 today. Not a good day to run a race. At the moment our AC is working great and that is a relief.

_____________________________________________

What has your days been like? Are you also sweltering in the heat? Most of the country is.

I wonder what we can do during this time of overwhelming heat.

  1. Drink lots of liquid. This is a very high time for getting dehydrated.
  2. Wear loose and light clothing. Let the air penetrate your clothing.
  3. Stay inside as much as possible. If you have to go somewhere, make sure there is air-conditioning where you are going.

_________________________________________

I have also been struggling weakness in my legs. I have to use a walker now to get around. It isn’t fun, but I like the security I have when I try to walk. Do you also have some things you are struggling with? Do you need help? You certainly not alone.

__________________________________________

If you need help ask for it. Do not hide your discomfort. People would love to help you that love you.

Remember that God is with you 24/7. He loves you and made you in His own image. He would do that for no reason. He wants what is best for you. Pray for His protection and love and He will deliver it to you.

___________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I have had quiet a ride the last week. I was hit hard with COVID. I seem to have won the battle. I see my doctor today to verify that. I am very sure that if I hadn’t taken my shots I would be gone now.

______________________________________________

Have you had similar things happen to you? Have you been hit with a sudden illness? You certainly are not alone. Over a million people have died from COVID. Doesn’t seem to be any let up insight.

______________________________________________

We need to rely on God. We need to cling to His promises. He is in charge and He will take care of us if we ask.

______________________________________________

Humility isn’t thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.

C.S. Lewis

Pretty much shows us the right path to walk.

______________________________________________

Many people feel the world owes them something. What follows is a list of what many people strive for when they have pride.

Manifestations of Pride (appear one at a time)

  • A lack of gratitude in general (2 Chronicles 32:25).
  • Being irritated when people don’t see your gifts, your abilities, or your importance. (1 Corinthians 4:7)
  • Being consumed with what others think (Galatians 1:10)
  • A lack of service (Galatians 5:13, Ephesians 2:10)
  • Being disrespectful to authorities (1 Peter 2:13-17)
  • Not having close relationships (Proverbs 18:1-2, Hebrews 10:24-25). Self-sufficient, don’t need other people.

Do you relate to anything on this lists? If so, do a check on what you need to do to escape this trap.

You are not alone.

You are not forsaken.

You are not unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

I am having a bad hair day. I fell yesterday and the second day aches and pains are here visiting me. It was at my niece’s house and didn’t see that her living room was a step down to get into it. I hit my grand nephew’s stroller and landed directly on my right knee. It scraped up my knee, but today it is hurting on the inside of knee in the bones as well.

______________________________________________

Have you had some falls? Do you have aches and pains from everyday efforts? You certainly are not alone. For people my age, (82) falling is not an uncommon thing. I am now living with a cane.

______________________________________________

Do not let this drag you down like a huge magnate. We will always have aches and pains.

I could say, “Buck up and quite whining,” But I feel for you. Getting older is not for sissies.

______________________________________________

Here is my list to cling to during my aches and pains:

  1. Remember the pain that Jesus had to go through for us. Our pain is nothing compared to that.
  2. I use my ailments to reach out to others. It helps them, and makes me feel good.
  3. Never let the darkside control your thinking. It is easy to be depressed all the time if you let that happen.

______________________________________________

I know that if you cling to God’s promises the pain won’t feel as bad. He is there for you. He knows your aches and pains. Pray for His protection, and comfort. He listens.

______________________________________________

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
