Speaking of diets, it is not just in my head: Carbs begat carbs, meaning, of course, that the more I eat them, the more I want them, and that vicious cycle is a bottomless pit of not being satisfied! I meant what I said HERE. Only His grace and love will set me free.
Libtards and Repugs? If you ever read the comment sections on news sites (not an activity I can whole-heartedly recommend) you’d notice that commenters are not nice to each other. They are all saying pretty the same thing to and about each other…name-calling and accusations...and each one is so convinced they are 100% correct. Truth is, none of us have all the answers.
Christians shouldn’t fall into that pit. We can comment and express our opinion, but we don’t have to slip into the mire and join the force of ugliness when someone is rude and unfair to us…even when we are convinced we are 100% correct! If you like to comment, then you are putting yourself “out there” and you will have people who disagree. Be nice. You are representing Christ, for Heaven’s sake. (Let me get my mirror out and preach to myself. I really need to work on my own sarcasm…and letting people in front when they need to be in my lane…even if she didn’t put on a blinker.)
I stand with Rick Perry. I think what has happened to him is an abuse of power to the highest degree. Justice demands that the tables are turned and those who are behind these accusations stand accused and indicted.
Do you realize that God is very serious about justice? I need a soapbox! Justice is mentioned over 500 times in the Bible…the Lord loves justice! (Isaiah 61:8) It displeased the Lord when there was no justice, and he marveled that there was no intercessor. (Isaiah 59) The foundation of the throne is righteousness and justice (Psalm 89:14), and Jesus, Himself, called it the weightier matter. (Matthew 23:23)
I’ll write more about this later…but Christian friends, it’s time to get our praying boots on for the plight of our country! I’ve never made any secret of the fact that I felt Barak Obama was the wrong choice for America. I know there have been times of social unrest and racial tensions before, but I’ve never personally seen it as bad as it is right now. Friends, America is in peril! Freedoms are being methodically stripped away. It’s more important than ever that we pray for our president and for the leaders of our great country…otherwise, I fear we will not be a great country for very much longer. There is blindness and deception at every turn. Pray for light in this dark, dark world!
