Thoughts

A COUPLE of disclaimers first…

1. My Mother in Law is in the hospital from where I am typing this message.

2. She came in last night so I did not get to sleep until 4am and was back up here at 12 PM.

I give those disclaimers because my words may be all over the place so forgive me in advance…..

As I sit here and watch what my Mother in Law go through what she is going through, it is like a slap in the face reality check of just how frail our bodies really are. A week ago she was pretty good; today she can’t put a whole sentence together and may have a heart infection. Just like that the world does a 180 and here we are.

Must be something in the air because I myself have not felt quite right this week; almost passed out once and just have had this foreboding feeling that something is not right. Spiritual? Maybe; if it is though its manifesting itself physical which is an interesting twist in events.

Something is definitely off though; even the nurse that just came in said, “You just don’t know who or what to trust anymore”; such a sad world that now exists..A world without morals, a world without direction, and a world hanging on to itself for dear life. A world just wanting answers; answers we as believers should be giving them.

I used to have hope; hope that at some point things would change…I still know in my heart that God has already won the war but right now I feel like my head and body are swimming against a current that will engulf me at any second.

Please keep our family in our prayers; especially my Mother in Law whose immediate situation is still fluid to say the least…..

Prayers

Hey fellow bloggers; if you pray, please keep my health in your prayers. I have a ugly stomach bug that kept me home from work today. It takes a lot to keep me out so hopefully it’s just a 24 hour things.

Thanks everyone and Agape Love!

You Can Do It!

“Lessons From Thomas The Train” By Casey Treat

When Julius said to me, “Big Red, you can change,” I really didn’t know if I could. I wanted to. I hated the life I was living and was ashamed of who I was, but I didn’t know if I actually could change. I saw the way my parents lived, and I thought that was all that was ahead of me. I didn’t know if I could have a loving marriage. I didn’t know if I could have a job I enjoyed. I doubted every positive scripture and message I heard.

I say that because you might be in that same place or you may know someone who is in that spot right now. The Bible doesn’t make these claims to mock us. The Bible doesn’t say that we are strong and able to live victorious lives purely to poke fun at our insecurities and inadequacies. The Bible tells us these things because we are able! You may not fully believe me yet, but you can change. You can go a day without being angry, or swearing, or going to the bottle for solace. It may seem impossible now, but just like that little blue engine that could, you can do more than you think because you have more than enough on the inside of you empowering you and strengthening you to win.

Renewal Thought: God has given you strength and boldness on the inside of you! You are able to win with God on your side. The greatest source of strength lives in you, and that power is yours for the taking. Even through our unbelief, keep trusting that you are able.

Prayer: Thank you, God, for the spirit of power, love and a sound mind. I pray the spirit of fear will have no place in my life. You did not give me a spirit of fear, so I refuse to be controlled by it. I pray Your power and love will lead me and all I do. My life, my spouse, and my children are free from fear; we walk in the Spirit of God.

Agape Love,

I grew up in Florida so this once again hits close to home. There is such anger in our world; more of this to come I’m afraid.

Let us share the Good News to all so they know there is a better way!
