Do Not Be Deceived

Spiritual Warfare is real. It happens every day. Satan is battling for weak souls and our Lord God is calling his people to Him. The Lord will win but there will be terrible events that people on earth will have to endure.

In today's high tech world, news and "entertainment" programs are presented in such a way to encourage sin, confusion, and discontent. 

People need to consider their responses to the horrific events they see in social media and in person.

Violence does not solve difference of opinion; it only promotes chaos and sometimes leads to death.

Damaging property and disobeying laws leads only to more time and funds wasted by individuals making negative choices.

So how do we solve these issues?

Love more, pray more, adher to the policy - when you see something, say something?

In the Holy Bible it is written that we should be very careful what we experience on a regular basis.

Philippians 4:8 New International Version (NIV)
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Why? Because before you know it, a thought could become an action.

Learn how to control your thoughts:

Put on the full armor of God - for your protection and others!

In Case You Missed It! - Kentucky Derby 2018 - Jesus Honored by Mike Smith's Verbiage

So pleased this year to view the very short race from the comfort of my purple chair in front of my TV. I bet I had a better view than most who attended. :)

I prayed many times that no jockey or horse would be hurt as the rain was pouring on the muddy track in large drops. 

My Lord hears all!

No injuries happened and it was icing on the cake to hear the winning jockey Mike Smith, age 52, give credit to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for his first place finish atop the horse Justify. 

The first video here is not the best quality, but you'll be able to hear the praise!

Why War?

Why War? Is it too crowded here? Do people not have enough space? 
Is it because everyone wants what someone else has? 
These 2 sites offer some explanation. 

My theory is that if we all asked Jesus to meet our every need that the people who exist now and in the future would not have acts of war.

"Being born again by the Spirit is an unmistakable work of God, as mysterious as the wind, and as surprising as God himself. Being born again from above is an enduring, perpetual, and eternal beginning. It provides a freshness all the time in thinking, talking, and living--a continual surprise of the life of God. Being born of the Spirit gives us new vision and keeps us absolutely fresh for everything through the never-ending supply of the life of God."

Peace is so necessary in these challenging times. Rest assured that the Lord of the Universe is in control! 

Philippians 4:4-9 New International Version (NIV)
Final Exhortations
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

The Art of Waiting

I am not always good at waiting. I work hard at filling the minutes of my day by being constructive in a positive manner but lately I find I have more available time to fill while waiting for my dreams and goals to come to fruition! 

So I did some research on waiting today. Two links are below with valuable data to consider as one learns to wait. 

I'll resolve to push forward, training myself to wait with contentment! 
Moments are so precious.
