Happy 4th Everyone!I'm currently boiling some potatoes and carrots for a nice side dish for the mini-BBQ at a friend's. In the mean time I just wanted to wish you all a wonderful Independence Day!
Hoping for America to stay freer than ever before and always remember who we are.
My 4th of July Prayer:
Thank you that we have a place to try and come and pursue righteousness and our dreams in the doing of good to others and the exercising of our gifts. Thank you for the sacrifices that people have paid on our behalf and we honor that and all our veterans who sacrifice their bodies for us. Please provide for them and give them the honor they deserve and the mental/physical healing they need along with their families.
YHWH, deliver us from dead-end work, greed, and corporate cruelty. I rebuke Mammon, the worship of money, in the name of Jesus Christ our High Priest. Loose our finances so that we can have an inheritance for our children. Cause us to start our own businesses that functio
Trust Pattern"Trusting is being confident of what we hope for, convinced about things we do not see. ."-Hebrews 11:1
Faith simply means trust and your trust is only as valid as the object of that trust. God has given me many reasons to trust him. Having already experienced past reward for my trust, I KNOW that any future trust will also be honored according to this established pattern. He's got good cred with me and I can vouch or his goodness and character
It's like I KNOW most people will stop when the light turns red because it has proven true in the past. Only God is way more reliable than a stop light.
That first step in trust is always the most challenging but what made it more palatable for me to step in this direction, even before I knew anything about God and the Bible, was that insane degree of love I sensed from Jesus Christ and his purity. Two things I did not have and hungered for. It was like a massive reservoir of it
It's a JourneyYou'll get there one day,
To that place you need to be.
It might seem far away,
But half the adventure
Is in the journey.
Demons will attack you,
And try to drag you down;
But if you keep fighting,
You will wear a crown.
It's okay to struggle
And to want to give up,
The harder it is
The stronger you are;
If you keep on going,
You will go far.
Love, Faith and SacrificeWhat of life? What of death?
Can we face the fact we are going to die?
Where is the insight? We cannot last~
Only in someone else’s memory.
What happens when there is no one to remember?
Are we unheard, like the tree in the forest?
Can we please celebrate the victory~
Without the constant reminder of defeat?
We cannot because of our sin
It becomes an endless battle, an endless defeat.
You cannot celebrate victory in a sea of sin, immortality and deceit.
We can never find peace without our Lord and Saviour.
His death is misunderstood, His death is not really comprehended.
God’s Love, the Sacrifice of His Son
Who but Christ would willingly be crucified?
No one else. He is the One!
The One you need to talk to about your death.
I asked, I prayed for God’s help
Is this the answer?
My pain and death?
I hope and pray
Can’t stop crying, so much pain watching the world:
People suffering in the streets,
Nations’ Leaders with their lies and deceit
