Marching

protest

Good Saturday Morning friends; as promised I am back with another edition of who will be in uproar over my message. Just kidding (sort of), I am sure as time progresses my messages will become more controversial as the world spirals out of control. I had a little feedback from my message yesterday and I do so much appreciate those that stood with me. The silence from most though told a different story; it would seem that we are much more accepting of things than I thought. So to quote the Emperor, so be it. After all, where two or more are gathered in His name right?

Ok so onto today! First thing I wake up and see there is another march against gun control. Make no mistake, I applaud those that unite for a cause I just wonder something….is what we are marching for truly going to effect anything at this point? Gun control, pro-life, pro-choice, lifestyle choices, black, white, you name it we are marching for it. EXCEPT one very noticeable thing…Marching for God!

We have absolutely no problem marching with this on our shoulders but where is the march that will truly bring change? CHURCH…..WHERE ARE YOU??? Oh I forgot, you’ve got every Sunday booked. No time for that….Too busy making the coffee and donuts to understand that the world is burning outside and we are doing NOTHING to stop it. I apologize to those that are but come on, show me ONE march, of substance, proclaiming that Jesus is Lord and He is the answer to ALL of this, I’ll shut up. Ok, I’ll wait……

Friends, the time has come to stand up and start a revival! A revival like never before seen in America. We must let people know the Good News above all else. YOU or I will never change hearts and minds, its only God and His Holy Spirit that will do that. Amen?How many of you would be willing to march for Jesus? 1? 5?10? What kind of impact would it make if MILLIONS of us as believers marched as one to Washington DC proclaiming His name in love? Could we do it? I don’t know, but I know we NEED to do it.

Lets show the golden calf who God really is through His people!

Blessings,

David

Good Morning!

Good morning everyone and welcome to Saturday! Sorry that I haven’t posted anything in a couple of days but it has been a bit of a crappy stretch for me health wise and just didn’t have it in me to write anything. I’m about 85% or so; still have the lingering cough and of course the hip issue (which I will get to in a minute) but overall feel like I’m at least on the right path again. Hope everyone is doing well out there and would love to hear from you guys. You can communicate to me through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and of course right here as well.

So, apparently I am officially mortal…..For those that don’t know a lot of my backstory, one of the more finer moments in my life happened when I thought it would be a great idea to not tackle other people but instead up the ante and try and tackle a car. Didn’t work out real well for either of us but I think the car probably got the worst of it lol. Seriously though I was getting off the city bus at the ripe old age of 14 and didn’t look both ways, darted out and BAM! Got flipped up in the air, somehow landed enough on my feet that I was able to walk about 20 yards before collapsing over a railing….I don’t remember much after that except for waking up in the hospital about 12 hours later not having any idea what happened. I was truly blessed that day because one half second either way in time and I would not be here writing this blog. God was in control even then….

I tell you this backdrop story of mine because I had thought that all my wounds had healed; not so much. See many people have told me I waddle rather than walk because one leg is shorter than the other. Really though its not my leg but my hip and back area got knocked pretty good and I never really got it taken care of; so now at the ripe old age of 46 its back and back with a vengeance…


Now, keep in mind my pain tolerance is pretty low, even for a guy, but this pain I knew was different so I went to doc about it. He did some X-rays and I got the call yesterday that I have some “very significant” arthritis in said hip and need to go to an Orthopedic specialist. I do understand this is not life threatening or anything like that, but it did give me my very first sense that “hey, goofball, you really won’t live forever”. It also reminded me of a very dark time in my life where by all rights I should have died that day. (Satan has been trying to take me out ever since). It reminds me that I’m over half way done with this crazy thing called life and my physical body will never be the same. Again, there are those in my life that are dealing with so much worse, but for me, this is a little bit of a sobering reminder of my mortality. Make sense?

I’m very aware that me losing weight couldn’t hurt the situation, however, I also know I would be dealing with this heavy or not. Back in the 80’s cars were still made with steel and so were not as forgiving as they may be today. This pain in my hip is that constant reminder; maybe the new doc will be able to help, maybe not, but as for me the first reminder that my days are not as many as they used to be just creeped up and said hello. Cute thing though that I will continue to remember as well that even though my earthly days are getting smaller, my eternal days are just around the corner. Maybe someone out there is also dealing with a similar experience? I would love to hear from you about it! Leave a comment in the comments section or however you see fit. In the meantime remember also that God is still in control and while the earth will reclaim your body, God has your eternal soul which if given to Him will live for all eternity where pain does not exist…..

Peace and love my friends, Happy Saturday!!

I Wonder..

Good Thursday morning friends. I write this to you feeling pretty lousy. I get a lot of ribbing because its just a head cold, but I guess if that was the only thing I was dealing with it would be understandable. I deal with a lot of pain everyday, (yes, I know much of it is because of my weight), some days just getting up from my bed or my chair takes everything I have. My knees feel like they are rubbing against bone, my hip has started this new thing that makes me cringe and now I am sick on top of it…

I used to be able to mask my symptoms but as I have gotten older it becomes increasingly more difficult. I titled this I wonder because I wonder what it feels like to feel good. I wonder what it feels like to just wake up and not be in discomfort or sick. I wonder if there is ever going to be a path that gets me there. I know everyone has pain and deals with things that make my issues look pale in comparison, but it still doesn’t take away what I feel. I wish people could sympathize, I guess when you are going through your own pain it makes it difficult to see the forest through the trees so to speak…..

I ask for your prayers everyone. I am off to work in what I am sure is going to be a long day ahead. Thank you for reading my blog and have a peaceful day my friends.

With the love of Jesus,

David

Still Not Feeling Well…


Well good morning friends or should I say good afternoon. I had a restless night and woke up feeling pretty crappy, so at my age and current health status I stayed home and slept in. This usually happens about twice a year and this is the second of the two. I don’t think this will be as long lasting as the first, but lets face it, I am a guy so yeah feel like I’m dying….

So this blogging thing I can’t quite put my finger on. In this age of technology it would seem like writing a blog and getting it out there would be easier, however, I am finding that is not the case. I mean writing it is easy enough, however, getting it to where people will read it is entirely another deal. So I am taking the advice of one blogger that reached out to me and am just writing for myself. I hope others can be helped and would love the feedback, but, I just have to hope that will happen in time. (Heck, its like pulling teeth just to get my family to read them lol). With that said I will bid you a due and hope you have a good day. This old, sick guy is going back to lay down.

Peace and love,

David
