Not sure what is wrong. Seems a little worse than normal. When I read the picture I posted I think people who have battled depression might actually be able to look back on a time when they were happy.
I read it and I immediately thought that I don’t remember when that might be. I remember when I was 11 and sitting on my bed in my room alone and thinking there was something wrong with me and I just wanted to sit in there all alone. I am 52 and I still feel like that most of the time.
Happy days? I have had them. One here, one there. Days I have spent crying or simply lonely even though people are around are far more easy to remember.
I am happier left to myself. Is that ok? It seems like the world tells you that you must be surrounded by others to really be happy. Then again, why listen to this world? I cut myself off from this world because I do not feel apart of this horrible and wicked place. I don’t see a future for myself. No family around. Most people my age are wrapped up in grandchildren. Mine live far away and don’t even know me with the exception of hoping for $$ from that lady who always sends it at my birthday and at Christmas.
I know…I know….don’t go quoting scripture. I won’t go and kill myself. I have hope in Jesus Christ. If I had no hope then I certainly would not still be here. I assure you it would be pointless. I have hope. I am currently having a really hard time showing that hope right now. That distresses me even more because I don’t want to disappoint God. I know this is not His desire for me. Yet, this world is sick and it sickens me. It vexes my soul to the core. Should I not be full of joy of the Lord?
I really don’t even know what to say.
Pray for me please.
I find it rather frightening that the amount of people falling for this climate change is so large. People are very deceived. God tells us in Hosea ….
First scriptures are concerning those who want to argue climate change is killing the animals and the fish in the sea. The second group is for those talking about the heat.
Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
Hos 4:1 KJV
By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
Hos 4:2 KJV
Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
Hos 4:3 KJV
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Hos 4:6 KJV
(the below are about the heat)
Even all nations shall say, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger?
Deu 29:24 KJV
They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.
Deu 32:24 KJV
The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.
Deu 32:25 KJV
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
Rev 16:9 KJV
So this a Saturday night live skit?
My God controls the weather. Yes, we should live in a way to be taking care of our world but…..
In America we will continue to do the things we need to do. We will continue to become better. Why would other nations do less? We should not continue to send more funding to nations above what we are already doing. PEOPLE WAKE UP. You have terrorists killing people and you are worried about America not giving the world more money?
May this bless all who listen.
The scriptures are clear. How easily we can kid or should I say lie to ourselves not to mention others. Scripture tells us that our very own hearts deceive us. We cannot be trusted even to ourselves. Put your trust in the only one that has the power to save you. Jesus Christ is His name! So EASY for us (I have been guilty too), for us to throw stones at Kathy. I mean she makes it so easy. She needs Jesus Christ, she needs to repent and we do too. We should all be praying for ourselves AND for Kathy Griffin. Instead of stoning her. Yes, she needs to be called out for her actions and that’s been done. Now let’s all pray for her and pray she comes out of the darkness and sees herself for what she has become. Pray she stops making excuses to others but is first honest with herself. Right now she is being deceived by her very own heart as most of us from one degree or another. It is a heart issue.
Proverbs 16:9 (flesh leads us our way but the Spirit of God leads us to life)
A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.
Jeremiah 17:9-10 (we are easily deceived unless we stay in the word of God to be able to know and discern the truth even in our hearts)
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked :who can know it?
I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
Deuteronomy 30:6 (tells us the why)
And the LORD thy God will circumcise (means to cut away all the wickedness ) thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.
Matthew 22:37-38 (backs up old testament law)
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38- This is the first and great commandment.
For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
Today we see again that God is writing the “requirements of the law” on the hearts of people. This is the Holy Spirit of God transcribing on our hearts how we ought to live – by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. A day is coming when God will judge people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, and there will be absolutely no excuses on that day. We will not be able to say, “but Jesus, I…” and talk our way out of what is already plainly known. None of us are without conscience, which according to this verse bears witness impacting judgment. The Holy Spirit is not going to lead us down a path that lives a life “secret” from God (as if that is even possible). The power of God is at work showing your life for what it is, and we have choices of how we will respond to those revelations. Will we choose the light, or will we choose the shadows?

I stumbled upon this. In 2013 or around there the Great Passion Play in Eureka Springs Arkansas was about to close. I think this must have been like a fundraiser. This 6 minutes is worth listening to. Takes you back to the basics of what the Pledge of Allegiance is about.
So thankful God gave us this man! The church needed a stern talking to! Including me!
Thank you Pastor….powerful.
Preaching for this generation.
Before watching this one in-particular I had told a friend that the 6 day war suddenly reminded me of how God created the world and all in it in 6 days and then rested on the 7th. That suddenly came to my mind and then after I watched this and it mentioned the same. I could not help but to cry as I heard the shofar blow after they reached the wailing wall.
Are you watching? Are you reading the word of God? It is time for much more to happen!
You don’t like Israel you say? You have a list of reasons?
I would say that we each need to pray that the Lord God would show us where we are wrong in any way we think. Pray for God to circumcise (cut away) our hearts of anything wicked, of anything not in line with the will of our Father in Heaven. You see, it really does not matter what we think but only matters what God Almighty desires. His way is perfect, ALWAYS. One day we will see that.
3 That then the Lord thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath scattered thee.
4 If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the Lord thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:
5 And the Lord thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.
6 And the Lord thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.
7 And the Lord thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.
8 And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the Lord, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.
9 And the Lord thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the Lord will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:
10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.
11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.
12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.
15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
16 In that I command thee this day to love the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the Lord thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.
19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
20 That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
