The worst feeling… Useless trash

Probably the hardest most frustrating thing, I’ve had to experienced is when things are totally out of my hands. Experiencing hopelessness, pain, struggling, loss, fighting, and sickness… just bad things at every turn and it’s out of my hands…. There’s nothing I can do to change it. It’s the absolute worst, most suffocating feeling, I have ever felt in my life.

When you think about things that you can’t choose, the first things that comes to mind for me, is being born and to whom, or how your treated as a child. These things can stick with you for a really long time… I know.

A positive experience as a child can be night and day, to a negative one for a child’s future. But at the same time, we heard of those who were born into awful situations…

The Day My World Stopped| Miss You Forever

Oh my gosh!

Warning!!! You will cry! This could be a trigger for some as well!

Sarah has bared her heart for us all to see. She shares her grief and her love for her cousin who passed away.

Having walked with Angie after losing Matthew I can understand everything. I’ve been there when a pair of socks in a store brings back memories and tears flow. And yet at the same time a smile. Grief is tough! It never goes away. One will always remember!

Sarah, thank you so much for sharing this heart wrenching poem that started your post! And I send a virtual hug my friend as you fondly remember your cousin🤗

A Poem

I went to a party, Mom. I remember what you said. You told me not to drink , Mom, so I drank soda instead.

I felt really proud, Mom, the way you said I would. I didn’t drink and drive, Mom, even though the others did.

I know I did the right thing, Mom. I know you’re always right. Now the party’s finally ending, Mom, as everyone drives out of sight.

As I get into my car, Mom, I know I’d get home in one piece. Because the way you raised me, Mom, so responsible and sweet.

I started to drive away, Mom, but as I pulled onto the road. The other car didn’t see me, Mom, and hit me like a load.

As I lie on the pavement, Mom, I wish you’d get here soon. How come it happen to me, Mom?…

Cancel Culture Movement

This post fits so well with my post from last night about how we cannot change God’s plan.

Told you someone more biblical than I could do much better! Mike nails it!

Michael (Mike) Copple

God has already identified the effects of man attempting to change culture. Of course the culture of a nation can be temporarily influenced. But the Lord Jesus Christ controls the eternal consequences.

Colossians 1:17   And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

Malachi 3:6a   “For I am the LORD, I do not change”  

Violent protesting, riots, lootings, boasters, shootings, murderers, lawlessness, releasing of felon criminals, decreasing funds for law enforcement, politicizing climate control, and indoctrinating children, teens, and young adults with opinions about sexual orientation can have detrimental, long term, end results. Consider the severe eternal consequences:

Broken… to do something!

I so thought I had shared James’ testimony prior to starting the Power Of Our Testimony section😥 I shared it on Facebook and not here. I am so sorry everyone!

Every single one of us deal with depression in one way or another over the years. Some have turned to sex and substance abuse as a means to cope. Others have chosen, sadly, to take there own lives.

We are all broken people. But there is hope. James found his hope in Jesus Christ.

I pray you will seek God during your brokenness instead of turning to the world’s way of coping. God heals! God guides! God nurtures! God loves when no one else does!

I AM for You!

I was in my young twenties, and went swimming at a public pool. The lifeguard was cute. But I knew I had no chance with her. You see, I was part of a group for which the pool had been exclusively reserved. We were a group of…
mental patients.

When you’re a mental patient you can get locked up. But after you get out you can getlocked out; locked out of people’s hearts. Sometimes once you reveal your mental illness, everything you do and say is interpreted by others through their lens of mental illness (they don’t seeyouanymore; they see every movie and newscast distortion of mental illness).

For example, you can’t get too upset about injustice, or they get worried about their safety around you. You can’t get too excited and animated, or they say you are agitated and worry about their safety around you. But the worst response…

Act As If Your Bibles Will Be Burned

This could happen folks! Have you memorized enough to have it etched in your heart and mind? I know I haven’t.

By David Ettinger

The Right Attitude
A reader recently wrote this in the comments section of one of my blogs: “Meanwhile, I suggest we start memorizing Scripture like never before. Then, when the Bibles are burned, we will have the Word of God still burning in our hearts.”

I concur! Her statement is based on the assumption that the U.S. is racing so far away from God that our political leaders will eventually enact laws forbidding reading, owning, and purchasing Bibles. If this happens, Bibles would be taken and burned, hence my friend’s counsel.

If believers knew for certain our Bibles were going to be confiscated, we should indeed begin memorizing large chunks of Scripture, and, I would add, reading the Bible in ample portions. This is the right attitude, and my blogger friend nailed it.

But, let me present a counter scenario. What if God spoke to every believer…
