What a weird week I have had. Some days were good, others were very bad. It was a rollercoaster ride.

It is very hard to face each day not knowing what kind of day it might be.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Have you had this happen to you? Have you had days you would rather have stayed in bed?

You certainly are not alone. They are things happening in our lives that drag us down.

Inflation, wars, gas prices, southern board, country shutting down, and many more problems.

No wonder that so many people feel lost.

__________________________________________________________________________

We all have to be strong, and pray for help from God. He wants what is best for us. He will not forsake you or abandon you.

Lean on God. Cry out to Him for Help.

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

We all know we need a good foundation in our lives. The Bible talks about building a house on sand. It will get destroyed. It also says building a house on Rock is what we all should do.

What about you? What is your foundation?

A good foundation is stable, solid, fixed, predictable.

______________________________________________________________________________________

The best foundation is trusting God. He can provide all your needs. He can hold you hand during your trials. If you have sinned, God is the only one who can bear the weight.

______________________________________________________________________________________

Think of what you have for a foundation. Is it strong enough to carry you through this world. Do you need to reevaluate your foundation?

______________________________________________________________________________________

Remember:

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Being a veteran I am overcome with shame to find out that 1.5 million veterans do not have enough food to eat. I know they were taught to be tough in the military, but they need to seek help anyway.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Have you had times when you needed something , but was too proud to ask for help?

There are many of you out there doing that. It is not shameful to seek help. Allow your friends and neighbors to help you.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

God will also provide for you if you ask. He wants you to be strong and healthy. He is just a prayer away.

You are never alone,

Another whining day. I have been living with tremendous pain for awhile lately.

  1. I have a right leg that is very painful, and I can hardly walk at times.
  2. My lower back is a mess. Can’t stand for more than five minutes.
  3. My left should has a tendon that is in the wrong place and I get sharp pain if I move my arm in a certain way.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Other than that I am doing fine!!

So how do I handle all of this pain. When I meet with someone and they tell my they have any of the three afflictions above, I share with them how God is with me to ease the pain. He gives me strength and perseverance.

That is called witnessing. It is a nature for me, and I am somewhat glad that I am able to do that.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

How do you handle you pain and other afflictions? Do you not want to share with other people about it.?

Try being positive and sharing with others how God is helping you through you pain. I have seen many smiling faces when I do that. It also make you feel good, because you are helping someone.

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.

You are never alone,

You are never forsaken.

The Bible says that when you are weak, then you are strong. Doesn’t sound right does it?

It is true though. When we, as Christians are down and out, we turn to God and He gives us strength.

Thoughts:

  1. God doesn’t choose the few who are qualified, he Qualifies the the few that He chooses. (Peter, David, Paul)
  2. We need to grow completely dependent on God.
  3. Know that you have been called by God to do greatness.
  4. Truth faith will not happen without facts to go by.
  5. True faith takes us beyond mere facts to trust.

Are you a “Fair Weather” Christian? Be a Strong-Witness.

Are you a “fair weather,’ Christian. A fair weather Christian is one who only calls on God when there is panic. The rest of the time everything is great so why need God?

When we call on God there is no busy tone. We get directly to him every time.

However, we often have a busy tone, because we are too busy to pray. Too busy to care.

There should be no busy tones from us!

______________________________________________________________________________________

We often act like a turtle. When there is a problem, we climb into our shell, and hide. We often do that when we should be witnessing to others.

Be brave and share the good news openly.

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.

You are never forsaken.
