Preaching the Gospel, Preparing a People
Thank you for reading my thoughts on how Lamentations reflects my feelings for the descent of our nation. Without a turn to the morality we once upheld we face the same fate.
Thank you Chris. We have so much to look forward to and one of those is having the opportunity to get to know all of our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Thank you for this article. Excellent picture of what is going on in our world behind the scenes. Those in our government see themselves as on board with a morally superior agenda and they really don't care how it will impact our nation and the people they are supposed to represent. They are already promoting all debt being forgiven-but what they don't say is that it also means all property will be held in common and dictated by those who lead this New World Order. Thankfully as you pointed out, Revelation shows it will not end there.
I guess I missed this when it came out. This is exactly where I have felt on these issues, but get push back that I am a conspiracy theorist for seeing the direction these things are going. Many refuse to see how the media will not portray what is happening in our country to show how it really is. Thank you for speaking out plainly and calling out the falsehood that this is all politics.
I am a morning person too. It gives me quiet time alone and I love this time of year when spring is on the horizon. Thank you for your comment and the add to the concept of being thankful for each new day. I really like your statement: "Begin the day with being Loved and pass it on through the day."
Very sobering. We are indeed sick from head to toe.
Terri thank you for this article. I recognize now that I have been dealing with weariness. I have tried to beat myself up for being lazy-which has never been a big issue for me-and could not understand why I could not just pull out of it. I plan to use your steps and may purchase Forty Days to a Joy Filled Life. I get even more frustrated with myself knowing this is just the beginning of sorrows, and if I struggle to cope now, how will I when the birth pains come closer together? I went from a long bout with Shingles straight into the Coronavirus scare and have realized I have to turn this inability to act consistently around. Your article has shown up with perfect timing. A couple of my friends lost their husbands right before this started so I have been thankful to at least have my husband who is always very even tempered and understanding. That will be at the top of my list of things to be thankful for.
Thank you for your comments. It will be incredible when the lame will leap, the blind will see and the deaf will hear. I think an eye care professional can test a person's eyes to see if they have the type of colorblindness that these glasses will help. I have often wondered about how it would be to completely lose my hearing, as you have. I have a constant ringing in my ears that seems to grow louder the older I become-but I can mostly tune it out until I am in a quiet room. I have seen videos of people getting cochlear implants and how amazing it is to be able to hear. Someday none of these devices will be needed. Amazing future we have to look forward to, no matter how crazy this world gets before then.
Thank you David for taking the time to let me know you appreciated the article. The proverb really spoke to me about the need to show honor to our parents and not hold mistakes against them. Many, if not all, can look back to things our parents did that were less than perfect and our children will do the same.
I have a son around your age.
I try to look at the fact I was yelled at a lot as a child as a part of who I am. Would I have compassion for others who go through this if I had no first hand experience?
My abusive dad died young and my mom became a gentler person as she aged, but still made critical hurtful remarks to me. She was unable to comprehend that they were hurtful.
I struggled with respecting the hard work my mom did as a single parent and the apparent mental breakdown she went through when she knew it was all on her. I now realize the struggle she faced and the less than perfect childhood she had.
I do not think it is healthy to allow a parent to continue to be abusive toward us, but I just look for the things I can understand and respect.
It sounds like you have made a life for yourself where you know you did not deserve the negative childhood you had.
The scars of childhood run deep and like a scar on the outside, they never really go away. All we can do is realize we do not have to be shaped by those scars all of our life and ask God to help us not keep them as an open painful wound.
I will add you to my prayers.
