Monday BLOG time, Everyone, and I hope you all had a weekend filled with special gifts of joy, fellowship and love.
My heart is heavy today as our world is changing so quickly, that it hardly resembles anything we recognize anymore. A curse of hatred for mankind abounds, as is being demonstrated with the malicious satisfaction being taken in unthinkable acts of horror across the lands. What is happening to us? It’s abominable and it may not end anytime soon—if ever. The sad truth is that we’re in a hell of a mess, and we need help—probably the supernatural kind that’s going to require some serious praying. In my humanness, Prayer is my answer to everything!
GOD has given us all our own free will, and many have taken that awesome right and continue to abuse it with a disturbing smug glee, to destroy with a sick vengeance, anyone they don’t like. Period. It’s apparent that Satan is working overtime.
I’m certain I’m not alone in this, as I conjure up the horrific visions of recent atrocities as I write this; however, the purpose of my words here today is NOT to spread doom and gloom—NO, quite the opposite. I share my heartfelt feelings with you in order to ask you to PRAY, and to continue to PRAY for our country and our friends…all over the world. PRAYER is a mighty powerful weapon if one knows how to use it and will use it. Amen.
“Take Your Soul by the Hand”
I once had a dream—it was wonderful!!! I could do anything I please; I could fly above the rooftops on the whisper of a breeze. I knew just what I wanted, What I needed to be whole, I had no fear of failure, For I knew it in my soul. But then things changed, for as I grew My life was filled with learning—With books and school and rule—and yet—My heart was filled with yearning. I searched to find the answers, I searched to find my goal, Till finally it dawned on me—I was searching for my Soul. We have a dream inside ourselves, A gift to us at birth, To guide us and protect us On our journey on this earth. We all have something special, Each one of us’ unique, You have to find the courage, To find the peace you seek. So dream your dream and live your dream, Don’t be afraid to try, Just take your soul by the hand And let your Spirit fly.
This poem is a perfect example of what our precious freedom allows us to do while we’re here and I pray we will hold onto that incredible gift !!
May we all be blessed with the gift of prayer this week and delight in knowing that praying is precisely what is expected of us when we’re in trouble—no matter what the situation!
GOD is Good! GOD is Great!!
I love you all,
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. —Romans 12:21
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. —Colossians 4:2
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. —Matthew 6:6
