WE PRAY FOR AND SUPPORT

INDIANA’S ANTI L.G.B.T. BILL!


 

 

WORDS TO LIVE BYGeoWashington

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religious and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness.”   

George Washington, First President of the U.S.A.

 

A THOUGHT FOR EVERY DAY…

Always Remember; “God’s Word will not return to Him void…” Isaiah  55:11

And; “He who does not love does not know God, for God is love”. 1 John 4:8

“In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

1 Thessalonians 5:18

 

The Story; Today, upon a bus, I saw a very beautiful woman and wished I were as beautiful. When suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobble down the aisle. She had one leg and used a crutch. But as she passed, she passed a smile. Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I have two legs; the world is mine. I stopped to buy some candy. The lad who sold it had such charm. I talked with him, he seemed so glad. If I were late, it'd do no harm. And as I left, he said to me, "I thank you, you've been so kind. It's nice to talk with folks like you. You see," he said, "I'm blind." Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I have two eyes; the world is mine. Later while walking down the street, I saw a child I knew. He stood and watched the others play, but he did not know what to do. I stopped a moment and then I said, Why don't you join them dear?" He looked ahead without a word. I forgot, he couldn't hear. Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I have two ears; the world is mine. With feet to take me where I'd go.. With eyes to see the sunset's glow. With ears to hear what I'd know. Oh, God, forgive me when I whine. I've been blessed indeed, the world is mine. If this poem makes you feel thankful, share your joy with others. After all, it's just a simple reminder that we have so much to be thankful for! Give the gift of love. It never comes back empty! We have been truly blessed by AWESOME FRIENDS LIKE YOU.

HEAR YE THE WORD OF THE LORD!

Proverbs 3;5-6, (NKJV) “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.”

Some ask, are we in America being abandoned by God, and if so, why?Well, I would like to shed some light on this question by looking more closely at the above Scripture. In this Scripture we read; “Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart… in ALL your ways acknowledge HIM”, We can know that in this Scripture, All means All! In All your heart…in All your ways. Not just as we feel like doing so.

How do we acknowledge Him? We acknowledge Him by learning of Him, getting to know Him, studying His Word, following His precepts and advice (We have been given the freedom to choose to acknowledge Him, or not acknowledge Him, the choice is ours). And  we are sure to reap the consequences of our choices.

We also, know that the “HIM”,  referred to is the Lord God (Jesus Christ). We are to “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” 2 Tim. 2:15 (NKJV) WE ARE TO “LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL OF OUR HEART AND ALL OF OUR MIND.” Matthew 22:27-28

If I were young, what would I do?

I WOULD GROW UP! 

In I Cor. 13:11,the Apostle Paul makes a very profound assertion:  He said, “I put away childish things.”   You’ll note he did not say, “I put away childlike things.”  That would not be a triumph; that would be a tragedy.  We look upon a new born baby weighing in at  6 lbs. 4 ounces.  We count all the fingers and toes; we check him all over and our hearts are thrilled that the baby is perfectly normal.  For him to coo and cry is perfectly normal.  The baby is a new born child, but supposed the baby is instead of weighing in at  6 lbs., he weighs in at 160 lbs.  That would not be a laughing matter; it would call for tears.  In fact the immaturity of the grown-up is one of life’s crowning tragedies.

         I believe the writer of the Hebrews had this thought in mind when he dealt with one of the seven dangers in this book, the Bible.  In chapter 5 and vss. 11-14 he deals with the Danger of Dwarfism, and then in Ch. 6:1, he says, “Let us go onto maturity” (perfection)  They were adults in age, but infants in maturity.  This is one of the most common maladies in today’s church and if this is speaking to you, “I WOULD GROW UP.”  In other words, “I WOULD PUT AWAY CHILDISH THINGS.”  I would recognize the serious nature of life and I would rise up to meet the challenges it presents.

         For instance, unlike a child, I would not get upset over trifles.  I would not take offense over every little thing that happens to me, that is, if it didn’t go my way.  Unlike a child, I would not always seek to be the center of attention; if I’m not allowed to be the pitcher or bat first, then I won’t take my ball and bat and go home.  Life seems to be filled with immature cry babies, and their number seems to be multiplying.

         A few years ago there was a period of time when young people would say to their parents, “I didn’t ask to be born.”  And that was true, but what was also true is, if the parents had known that their child was going to be such miserable ingrate, they may have aborted them, the medical technology was there.  When I think of immaturity, my mind always seems to gravitate to the parable of the two sons in Luke 15.  Both of these boys were very childish in there action.  One was childish in his demanding to have his inheritance, and the other was childish in his attitude.  Neither one had a lick of maturity in them.  Neither one was willing to put away childish things.  The younger one will go down as one who wasted his life in the far country; the other one wasted his life on the farm, sulking. 

Let’s grow up folks!
