This topic hits home to me. As a Prodigal, I was “All In”. daily, convinced that Mercy and Grace covered my transgression, I sailed along for decades, totally unaware of the bill coming due. Just prior to Christmas, 2016, I got the taste of the dish I had served the mother of my children over thirty years earlier and will never forget it. “Living together”, unmarried, violates God’s law and even though it is generally condoned, it comes with a cost. Adultery is not an unpardonable sin, but it places layers of hurts that soon damage the comfort zone. The price for sin, even though paid in full by Jesus Christ, can remain as garbage that continues to stink. The SINister minister continues to fight for victory, every day of a believer’s life. Each negative adds up and at just the right time, he whispers, “Enough is Enough!” and it is. What I thought was ‘true love’, must have been a sham. Today, depending on a very precious lady and her niece for care, I can see just how wrong my life-choices have been. To follow the meandering of my career could leave one out-of-breath and scratching your head in disbelief, but facts are that I have been presented too many wonderful opportunities to realize just how great is our God! Many spend their entire life never hearing applause. Too many very important citizens spend an entire life of ministry, never being even slapped in the back for a job well done. Mine has been exceptionally blessed. No way could the music of my life have been composed by other than “He who was and is and is to be”! I do know that for all who have faithfully invested that which God gave them, unselfishly, will have a very heavy, precious jewel-laden crown. And that’s what I get from MY box of chocolates. AMEN
Dear Elected Person,
We The People are fed up with your lack of respect of the office you hold. Some of you are totally confused as to why you are there. We do not give a “snap” about how YOU feel about issues! You are to represent US. You have hearing loss brought on by arrogance. If you continue ignoring us, we will bring you back home and find good folks who will do what is right for our common good.
We demand you to cease and desist deciding what’s what by your own understanding. We demand that you abandon your stinking practice of party loyalty and adhere to the Godly Principle of our Founding Fathers. Start with this scripture passage from 2 Peter:
“For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves.” Get it? The “ignorant talk” is the waste of time playing party politics that recent “Hearings” represent. And stop “covering up Evil”!
If you want to remain in office, then stop reading your own rhetoric and turn to God’s Will. Either you start doing your job, immediately, or look for employment elsewhere.
Fed up Electorate
Three men stood in a totally pitch black room one day. Gautama Buddha, Muhammad and Jesus Christ each spoke, one at a time, saying, “Let there be light!”. First it was Buddha, “Let there be light!”…nothing happened, so he said it once more and once more…there was only darkness. Muhammad then said, “Let there be light” and nothing happened, even after he tried three times. Jesus chuckled and they said, “OK, you do better”. And He did! Scripture says that Job declared that it snows when God says, “Let it snow”. When God asked for rain, it did so in abundance. It seems to me that for anyone to believe in anything other than God and His Word, they are in for great disappointment. My life has been blessed, even in times of terrible circumstances. I am, by the world’s standards, indigent and needy. When asked, “What’s In Your Wallet?”, I say nothing. If William Devane were to ask, I would say nothing. I’m a poor lonesome cowboy in appearance, yet an Heir to everything. I’ve been adopted by God, Himself. Though totally unworthy, my eternal life is secured and eternally guaranteed! I am a Child of the King of the Universe, not because of anything I can do, but for everything my Lord Jesus Christ did for me on a horrible cross.
Talk about a box of chocolates! HeeLawsey!!! AMEN
