Counting On Dad (Sunday Inspiration)

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.” (Psalms 91:3)

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn…..” (Isaiah 54:17)

What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.” (Psalm 56:3)

Ya know we live in a dangerous world with both positives and negatives. The positives are easy and required, no, desired more than its opposite. However, when these evils and negatives arise and they will, our preps will only go so far. We have limits.

But God in His infinite love and grace, steps in and navigates us through the rough. And in those times, our confidence should never be placed in ourselves not in our skills or equipment but take relax in that which dwells in most of us. As we place our confidence in and count on His faithfulness in our Heavenly Dad we are guaranteed to overcome all adversities.

A true story was related to me recently of a rancher who lived in the lowlands of Southwest Texas. The father had promised his young son a fishing trip. On a set day, they traveled to the river for the adventure; they arrived about mid-morning. After the two spent some time fishing, the father noticed that a storm was moving in. He thought about how quickly the river could flood in heavy rain, so he decided that they should head home. The father and son began their homeward journey. They had traveled a quarter of the way and were nearly home, when their Jeep got stuck and they could go no further.

knowing that he would have to walk a mile or so for help, he instructed his son to stay inside the Jeep. After being gone a while, the father approached the Jeep and entering the vehicle he was delighted to see his son asleep in the back seat.

The father looked at the son and asked, “Son, weren’t you worried or scared?” The son looked innocently at his Dad and in all sincerity replied, “Dad, I was counting on you.”

How much faith do we have in God, our Heavenly Father? He has said, “....I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Heb. 13:5) Can we confidently claim that promise? If so will we be able to say as Moses did at the Red Sea: “…Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD…….” (Exodus 14:13).

Daily here and there, so many of us people on Earth face great rials, strange weapons, negatives on supers levels, poor decisions with terrible consequences, physical ailments, financial hardships, spiritual adversities, wicked lies, bondage enriched laws, governmental disruptions to all our lives, man-made atrocities, extreme weather…all this and more; all the while breathing the same air space as these things most wicked. What is one to do?

When these floodwaters threaten to drown us, a calm trust in God, and hearing His voice will enable us to lie down in the “back seat” and rest (sleep)- because we are counting on our Heavenly Father (our Dad!).

When all hope is lost, we can always count on God

Comparing Heaven And Hell (Sunday Inspiration)

True Story

Years ago I met a man who lived for a while in Costa Rica; near the Arenal Volcano which for a while was active. He said that he hiked up about halfway and there seeing a crater to which many people from the United States grab guided tours. If you were standing near the crater, you’d see this red-hot dome with this steam and sulfur dioxide coming out.

At the base of the volcano was this discharge of lava, consisting of huge boulder that had come through a great heat and if was covering a lot of acres of pasture land. In seeing this, you could almost hear the words of Isaiah saying, “Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure:…………”

Looking at Arenal Volcano can help you visualize HELL as Jesus described it in Luke 16:19-31 and Revelation 21:8. Jesus spoke of HELL so vividly because He doesn’t want people to go there for eternity but rather enjoy Heaven forever. A volcano is surely not HELL, but it’s a vivid reminder of the real HELL Jesus talked about. In Revelation 21 we have a striking picture of Heaven and also of HELL. The choice of where we go is ours to make in this life.

I knew of this woman who got stung in her neck by a yellow jacket and she passed out. Her heart even stopped beating for a while, but she was revived by a person nearby who had medical training. After she regained consciousness, the first thing she said to her husband who was with her was “I saw Jesus on the throne.!” Later on the way home she mentioned that she was “almost there,” and that “Heaven was so beautiful!”

We may not have the hope of inheriting great wealth here in this world, but Revelation 21:7 says, “He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.” What a glorious anticipation! And,…what an awful contrast is the fate of unrepentant people that want to do their own thing, their own mind and end up staying a lost sinner headed to the lake of fire and brimstone!!

The woman’s husband was the one who lived in Costa Rica.

Matthew 25:46 says, “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

This world affords no pleasure so great to cause a person to say, “It was worth it!” as they are squirming in an unquenchable hellfire.

Shocking Survey Finds That Americans Find More Meaning In Life From “Money” Than They Do From “Faith” (LINK)

People often quote that “money” is the root of all evil. No. It’s the “LOVE” of it, things, bling, money, riches…that IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL. It’s ok to have things as long as things don’t have you. Where your heart is, there will also be your treasure. 

1 Timothy 6:10 “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” KJV

What gives you a sense of meaning and purpose in life?  That may seem like a very unusual question, but I believe that it is a very important one considering how deeply unhappy our society currently is.  Everyone needs a reason to get out of bed in the morning, because there wouldn’t seem to be much point to living a life that was completely void of meaning and purpose.

So what motivates most Americans to do what they do?  Well, a new survey that was just released by the Pew Research Center has some rather startling results.  When people were asked an open-ended question about what gives them a sense of purpose and meaning in life, 69 percent mentioned family, 34 percent mentioned career, 23 percent mentioned “money” and only 20 percent mentioned faith……….”

How Heavy is Your Glass? (Of the Story Inspiration)

Once upon a time a psychology professor walked around on a stage while teaching stress management principles to an auditorium filled with students.

As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the typical “glass half empty or glass half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, the professor asked, “How heavy is this glass of water I’m holding?”

Students shouted out answers ranging from eight ounces to a couple pounds.

She replied, “From my perspective, the absolute weight of this glass doesn’t matter. It all depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute or two, it’s fairly light. If I hold it for an hour straight, its weight might make my arm ache a little. If I hold it for a day straight, my arm will likely cramp up and feel completely numb and paralyzed, forcing me to drop the glass to the floor. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it feels to me.”

As the class shook their heads in agreement, she continued, “Your stresses and worries in life are very much like this glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and you begin to ache a little. Think about them all day long, and you will feel completely numb and paralyzed – incapable of doing anything else until you drop them.”…….

The moral OF THE STORY: It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses and worries. 90% of the things we worry about happening…Never happen.

No matter what happens during the day, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the night and into the next day with you. If you still feel the weight of yesterday’s stress, it’s a strong sign that it’s time to put the glass down……..and there is always a place to leave it 😉

1 Peter 5:7 “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” Peter, Disciple of Jesus

Luke 21:34And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.” Jesus

“Do Not Love The World Nor The Things In The World” (LINK)

Do Not Love The World Nor The Things In The World

Happy Sunday people. I ran across this I believe looking for something else. It’s an older article from June and in reading it, well, just puts things into perspective. A lot of what we see and hear is according to one’s own “perception.” Evidence and faith are called upon whenever we examine things (instead of listening to the official narrative the world produces); many times on a “spur of the moment” basis. With that in mind it’s always good to remember this, that God is God, and we are not Him. And the greatest of His commandments are that we should…… ‘Mk 12:30 “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.”‘

There are a lot of things in this world that “might” seem like it craves and begs our love, but we cannot love the world over the One who created such. The world and the things in it, are temporal…temporary. God is eternal. It’s that simple 🙂  Anyway, I thought this article had some good points. Hopefully those who read it will find it uplifting and maybe today, consider the Lord above our temporal “things” that surround us. Have a very blessed and peaceful Sunday. A new week is nearly here- hope yours is a good one!

 

 

Will Our Lack of Humanity Be the END of Humanity? (LINK)

“………It seems that I can publish the most heart-wrenching thing and if it doesn’t fall in line with somebody’s political opinion, they can turn it around and say something that makes me doubt they even have a soul……..” -Daisy Luther [Read more from Daisy at link below]

Thanks Daisy!! 🙂

Will Our Lack of Humanity Be the END of Humanity?

https://www.theorganicprepper.com/end-humanity/

I’ve seen the same thing. Thanks Daisy for expressing your feelings in this awesome tell-tale article. I believe (albeit very few) that there are still a few people that have souls left; that somehow they still have a natural compassion for the weaker more needy person. I hope that we have not dissed humans in favor of say, “trees, plants and animals;” while these are blessed in their own created right, they are not made in the image of God such as we are and we have hearts and emotions that can be expressed and even understood. No plant, vegetable or mineral can do that. As for animals, yes, they have souls I believe, but for the greater of humanity, I recommend we put people over animals always! Without us, they’rd be no them…at least happy ones. If there were no humans to be guardians, they’d be awful lonely“. -Moraldiplomat
