The Background Noise Of Grief

Thankfully, I’m not suffering from any specific grief at this time. I have a few friends right now that are going through the pain of loss. I was praying with how best to help and be the friend that Jesus wants me to be. God graciously sent me two messages yesterday, one from my women’s daily devotional (Journey – below) and as we drove to town via GNN Radio (Christian). We were going to town to take care of a few things and meet our beloved Niece for a rare lunch. I treasure all my time with her. She’s a bright spot in our lives. She too has known these sufferings from the hands of a brutish relative. I want to be this kind of friend and Aunt to her she needs.

Life is not a straight line. Grief has no simplistic answer, way of dealing with it or time limit, although love does cover all ‘sins’ (pain). God tells us, “I love those who love Me; those who seek Me will find Me.” [Proverbs 8:17] We’ve all suffered that sudden bend in the road – abuse, betrayal, financial setbacks, fear, disappointments, loss of a cherished loved one, fear, poor health. All us still in this mortal coil have pain, fear and disappointments. No one’s life is truly “easy”. God promises that if we walk with Him, His grace will see us through it all. He’s been to this day and to Eternity. He wrote the Book! ❤ So have courage dear Brothers and Sisters. When we are suffering it is when we should be reaching out to others in their fear and pain. Soon our burdens are diminished and each day will get easier. Don’t fear the curve. Lean into it for the coming Resurrection that is near and feel at peace with Christ.

I love and pray for you all daily. Ride safe!

America’s Terminal Decline Or Survival Against The Odds

Right now, there is a great struggle to see which one wins over all citizens in the United States of America. Either there will be a total Marxist takeover under the Biden Administration which will bring starvation, want, devastation, imprisonment and finally death. Or the population will turn their hearts and minds to Jesus Christ, worship God not Gov, seek forgiveness, and choose life giving liberty. I’m not going to try and guess which one will win. Time will reveal all.

For now, keeping in mind that there are cesspool areas in all the States in the Union, according to most news reports all the so-called “blue” (Democrat/Marxist) States are in terminal decline. While the rest of us, for instance like here in Georgia (Republican/Capitalist), we are hanging on and are actively thriving because we refuse to play along with the Communists. States have to power to say “No”. It seems like almost every weekly news cycle in our local rag it touts a new start-up in the tri-county area. Small businesses seem to be doing well. Just north of here, in Jesup, I am happy to say that they are also thriving in leaps and bounds. We drove through the town today and there are lots of lovely little shops, restaurants, a coffee shop, and other things to entertain even the most discerning shopper. 

Gas did shoot up to $3.29 a gallon, then slipped back down to $3.23. Some stations are as “low” as $3.15, I see. There are numerous discussions about the inflationary prices of food, paper products, etc. but almost everyone who wants to work is. No empty shelves nor supply problems have been reported. We’re not seeing any of the suddenly homeless like under that Marxist Obama (many abandoned their house pets too). What happened then is emblazoned in my memory. It was a terrible time. There is a great need for truck drivers at the moment and it’s all daily hauls, not long distance. Makes me almost wish I had a CDL License when I saw their hourly pay rate.

Fox News states that the illegal President is overseas giving away more our sovereignty or trying to. Most of the world is reverting back to worshiping the creation again by sacrificing their children to Moloch, encouraging sexual sins, and other sacrifices to the devil to stop the “climate change” so their crops won’t fail. We’re reverting into barbarianism.

In closing, every day, more than once a day, I pray that nothing that the Biden Administration wants to do to us will come to pass, especially the poorly named Infrastructure Bill (it’s 100% Satanic). We don’t need an Obama 2.0 Administration as the Leftists obviously desire. I pray that none of these demonic Bills in the House or Senate will pass. They all need to be cast into the pit. I pray that God will cast those who wish us harm into the swine, then drive them off the cliff never to trouble us again. Praise His name forever for He has kept His restraining hand on their evil. We are battling demonic forces with human faces. I hope all who believe in Him are also praying. He is our only hope and chance of survival.

Go with God.

Ephesians 6:10-11

A Heartfelt Prayer

A part of my morning devotional is dedicated to reading a chapter in Psalms. Today, as I read Psalm 83 He really touched my heart. I read it again but this time as intended: a prayer in the form of a song. My heartfelt request is for all those who profess Jesus Christ as their personal LORD and Saviour would please pray this prayer for America and the world in general. The G7 Summit is this weekend, or very soon, but we are in deep trouble folks. Pray that all the wickedness the devil worshiping Left wants to inflict on us and others falls apart. Their plans become like the sand on the beach and are washed out to sea never to take root. Please, pray for us. We are in grave danger from their harmful plans. May God’s will be done, of course, and may it please Him to forgive us our sins and protect us. The devil is on the prowl looking for victims. God bless you for praying.

Psalm 83

A song. A psalm of Asaph.

O God, do not remain silent;
    do not turn a deaf ear,
    do not stand aloof, O God.
See how your enemies growl,
    how your foes rear their heads.
With cunning they conspire against your people;
    they plot against those you cherish.
“Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,
    so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”

With one mind they plot together;
    they form an alliance against you—
the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
    of Moab and the Hagrites,
Byblos, Ammon and Amalek,
    Philistia, with the people of Tyre.
Even Assyria has joined them
    to reinforce Lot’s descendants.

Do to them as you did to Midian,
    as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon,
10 who perished at Endor
    and became like dung on the ground.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb,
    all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
12 who said, “Let us take possession
    of the pasturelands of God.”

13 Make them like tumbleweed, my God,
    like chaff before the wind.
14 As fire consumes the forest
    or a flame sets the mountains ablaze,
15 so pursue them with your tempest
    and terrify them with your storm.
16 Cover their faces with shame, Lord,
    so that they will seek your name.

17 May they ever be ashamed and dismayed;
    may they perish in disgrace.
18 Let them know that you, whose name is the Lord—
    that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.

Thursday Thoughts

There are dark clouds all around us. A storm is approaching. When it’s at its darkest, it seems to make colors brighter. Reds are redder. Greens are greener. Birds seem to know when the dark clouds are approaching before we do. They scurry quickly gathering seeds or insects. Bringing them back to the nest. Unless one is a farmer, we humans tend to ignore the warnings all around even when God’s simplest creatures make plans. Those who don’t heed the warnings of danger will perish.

There are dark clouds forming all around. Europe is already in a very bad way, now it’s come to America. “Democrats To Unveil Court-Packing Bill“. Our very lives and all we hold dear are in peril as the devil wanders our Country like a roaring lion looking for the lost to devour. He’s even in the White House right now. He’s no longer hiding behind placating words like “socialism” or “social justice” or “stimulus”.

Since the time of Genesis it’s been a spiritual war: good against evil, right against wrong. Now here in America our circumstances are almost sure to quickly digress into a physical one. If the Left are not defeated, and soon, I pray we’re ready for the devastation that will follow. We’ve been warned to not build a house on sand (following the devil), but to build it on the Rock (Jesus Christ) and be saved.

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.
27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
Matthew 7:24-27 NIV
