Loneliness – are you feeling it as you shelter in place?

god-bless-americaWP9.28.19

Today, we celebrate our Armed Forces. We say, “thank you” to each of them for their bravery, service, and dedication.
Right now, as I am typing these very words, our rights are being threatened. We have been told to stay at home, not go to work, not go outside, to only see our loved ones for medical emergencies, and not to go to our places of worship.
What?? How can this be? We are Americans. We love our freedoms! We are blessed with freedom of speech, worship, to protect ourselves, etc.
These rights are given to every citizen of America.
No law, no decree, no executive order can take these from us.
Yet, we have power-hungry government officials that seem to think they have the power to take our rights away.
We voted these officials into office, and we can vote them out of the office too. We can seek retribution in the courts. In some states, we can even recall officials.
We have to do something. We cannot lay down and let these officials strip away our rights.
If we allow our rights to be taken now, how long will it be until they do it again or find a way to take away our rights permanently.
We are being controlled and silenced. What is the tool they are using to silence us?  Fear of course.
We are silenced from speaking up about our rights and these atrocious attacks on them.
Our worship is being silenced.
That is one thing we cannot allow to happen because God desires and deserves our worship.
When we worship, mountains move, bodies are healed, minds are restored, marriages are made whole again, addictions are broken, and miracles happen.
When we worship, God moves!
Our worship makes all of heaven move on our behalf.
We cannot allow our worship to be silenced!
Our answer to this pandemic is in our worship. The answer to a vaccine is in our worship, and our economy’s recovery is in our worship. America’s breakthrough is in our worship.  America’s next level is in our worship.
Every answer is in our worship.
Whatever happens, do not allow your voice to be silenced! Do not let your worship to be taken away from you.
Now more than ever, it is crucial that you contact your senator, representative, governor, major, your city council, and even the President.
All of us have to take some action now. Call, write, email, sign a petition, start a petition, or peacefully protest.
Let them know that our voices will not be silenced and that we will not sit by as our rights are stripped away.
America, stand up now. If we don’t, God help us!
Don’t give up now. I see God in the midst of all of this. He is at work. He has not and will not ever forget us.
He sees our suffering, and He hears our prayers.
Keep praying, pushing forward, and keep worshiping Him.
Pray without ceasing because that is what His word tells us to do.
Pray fervently. God’s His word says that a fervent prayer availeth much.
As we pursue God fervently, I see a mighty move of God coming because we pushed through and didn’t give up.
God will avenge America. God will restore America and all Her citizens.
I know it easy to become hopeless with so much negativity surrounding us.
That negativity seeks to pull you into its grasps.
Now, let your faith arise. Your faith is what destroys the hopelessness. God will repay your faith because He always honors those with faith.

Are you feeling abandoned? Many are.

worship-written-in-vintage-type-WP

Many might be thinking, “where is God right now.” Perhaps they believe that He has left or abandoned us.
He hasn’t left us alone. Now don’t get me wrong when I say that because there will be a time when people will search for God, and He will not answer, but we are not there yet.
That means that you still have time to seek Him out. You still have time to ask Jesus to become your personal Savior.
That means that you still have time to seek God’s forgiveness.
God has not left us. He is aware of what we are facing and what we are going through.
God knows and sees all.
Many say how God can allow so many to die and suffer from this pandemic, food shortage, etc.
God is a God of order and process. He has a particular way of doing things.
We, as humans, have sinned and come short of God’s glory. We have not followed God’s instructions and directions on how to live our lives. We want to live our lives the way we see fit.
Most of the time, it is a life with God not included. We often think we can live without Him than when we find out we cannot; we cry out to Him in anguish to help us.
And He shows up, but remember that there will come a day when He won’t. Are you ready for that day?
When we sin, we cause doors to open that God never intended to open. With those open doors, we invite the enemy to wreak havoc on our lives and our family’s lives.
Every decision has consequences, and those consequences, depending on the decision, are either good or bad.
Right now, we are watching and feeling the effects of the human race, saying to God, please leave.
We asked Him to leave our schools by saying no more prayer and discussing God or religion.
Because of this decision, we now have school shootings, increased drug abuse, increased depression, increased anger, and frustration, and increased suicide.
We told God to leave our workplaces. Now we have work violence, hate, frustration, discord, racism, and bigotry.
We told God to leave our families. We told Him we didn’t need Him anymore. Due to that decision, we have more broken families, more teen pregnancies, more families without fathers, more poverty, and increased abortions.
And on and on it goes.
We told God to leave, and He did. In His absence, we essentially told sin, death, destruction, hate, bigotry to take over.
Now, here we are.
What are we going to do now? Well, we have two choices. We can not pray, gove up, and continue to watch as the world continues to deteriorate, or we can pray as we have never prayed before.
We cannot give up on our prayers. We cannot think that prayers aren’t working.
We can’t just say that we have prayed enough and decide to stop.
God tells us to pray until something happens. He tells us to pray fervently and continuously without stopping.
Now you may be saying that our prayers are not helping, but I think that they are. What evidence do I have?
Well, it’s the evidence of all the increased turmoil. With prayer, things always get worse before the breakthrough comes.
God shows up right on time. His timing is impeccable.
So pray and don’t stop praying. Pray together as a family. Pray in agreement. Pray a loud so that God, the enemy, and everyone listening can hear and keep praying. Don’t stop praying!
Then, the next step is to worship God for your prayers being answered. Even though everything is still chaotic with your human eyes, speak the opposite of what you see during your worship.
Speak life! Pray life and blessings. God will move! He has to because God cannot and will not fail!

America’s comeback – returning from the edge of destruction.

America, we have been asleep at the wheel for a long time.
We are waking up into what we believe was a horrible dream, but it is now our reality.
We put our lives on autopilot. We gave control of our final destination to other people.
We fully trusted what we were being told. We didn’t verify. We didn’t ask questions. We just went along quietly as others drove America into the ditch.
We allowed ourselves to be lied to. We let our American dreams be turned into a nightmare.
We let others go out and declare to the world that America was a racist country full of people who’s sins were unforgivable.
We allowed our leaders to turn our inner cities into war zones.
We allowed those same leaders to turn those cities into places that no human should have to live in.
We allowed those leaders to make those who were in poverty before even more impoverished.
We allowed those same leaders to enrich themselves as those in poverty turned poorer.
We allowed those same leaders to stop teaching our children in these large cities. We sat back as watched as our children did not even gain a primary education.
We allowed those same leaders to take away the right of school choice.
We allowed those same leaders to systematically turn large cities into outdoor homeless encampments.
We allowed those same leaders to kill off our population by flooding our streets with potent, highly addictive, and powerful illegal drugs.
We allowed those same leaders to give away our jobs and turn small towns into ghost towns.
We allowed prayer and the talk about God to be removed from our schools. Now, our children live in fear of school shootings.
We allowed political correctness to take over, and it made us conscientious of everything we were allowed to say. This political correctness chipped away our precious freedom of speech.
We allowed those same leaders to tell us that boys who “identified’ as girls could compete against our daughter’s in their sports events.
They also told us that those same “girls” could shower and use the same restrooms with our daughters. We were told that if we didn’t agree that we ourselves were racists.
We allowed our children to be indoctrinated in our colleges. We allowed these colleges to hire professors who hate America. We let their poisoned minds teach our children, thus filling their minds and hearts with that same poison and hate.
We allowed big corporations to grow into monopolies, thus driving small businesses into bankruptcies.
We voted in leaders who do not believe in criminal justice. These leaders see our justice system as racist.
Thus, they allow those guilty of serious crimes to roam the streets to create more victims.
We allowed these same leaders to leave our border unsecured. Thus we have now imported dangerous criminals from so many other countries.
We have allowed those leaders to leave our veterans out in the cold. These brave men and women fought for our nation, Her people, and Her freedoms.
We allowed so many of them to suffer.
We have allowed our military men and women to be wounded, maimed, and killed for no reason.
Then if that wasn’t enough, we allowed them to suffer in silence with PTSD once they returned home.
We have allowed those same leaders to keep us in endless wars. We have wasted so much money on wars that we should not be involved in.
On and one it goes. America, when is enough going to be enough?
When will we demand that those responsible for the near destruction of America have to be held accountable?
Yet, what do we do? We continue to re-elect the same politicians into office. They blatantly lie to our face, and we keep rewarding their lies by re-electing them. It is time to vote them out of office!
Now, we allowed radicals to be voted into office.
We are blessed to live in a democracy where we have the incredible gift of choosing our leaders, yet many of us never even bother to vote.
Now, we have voted into office those who do not even try to hold those guilty of crimes accountable.
We have allowed “no cash bail” to be implemented, allowing a revolving door for violent criminals.
America, we have allowed our wages to be driven down by not demanding that the entry of low skilled workers from other countries be held to a limit.
We allowed these leaders to place abortion clinics in our brown and black communities. We stood silent as these “clinics,” which are disguised as places for “women’s health,” murder innocent babies of color. If that wasn’t bad enough, we said nothing as they used our money, in the form of taxes, to commit these murders.
Right at this moment, many of these leaders will not allow American’s to go back to work, to reopen their small businesses, to get back to school, and to start to get back to our everyday lives.
They have used their power to impose draconian lock-downs all in the efforts of making our economy fail! Why do they want our economy to fail? So that they will gain more power!
We have been lied to about how many American’s truly have passed away from this deadly virus. Again, inflating this number to gain more power, and to keep us in ultimate fear in order to control us.
Fearful people are so easy to control. They know this and are using it to the fullest extent!
Now, we have allowed our leaders to drive American race relations back to pre-1960 levels. Now racism is alive, thriving, and now on steroids.
We sit back and say nothing as they spoon-fed our youth with hate, blame, excuses, and racism.
We have allowed our leaders to tell us that people should be judged by their skin color and not their character.
First of all, who are we to judge, and second of all, no one should be elevated or held back because of their skin color.
We have allowed these same leaders to tell Caucasian Americans that they should be ashamed of their skin color and are guilty for all the racism in America from the beginning of Her conception.
We have allowed these same leaders to tell those Americans of color that Caucasians are the sole reason they can’t get ahead in life.
The ironic part of this all is that some of those leaders who are bringing shame to Caucasians are Americans of color who somehow managed to rise to leadership positions in a country full of racist.
How can so much “systemic racism” exist in America when America voted in Barack Obama for our President, twice? The answer is that it DOES not exist. It is made up, fabricated, and dishonest! All this dishonesty to keep America divided!
We have allowed these same leaders to lie to us over and over again.
They lied to tell us when they said they represented the working men and women of America. All the while, they were hiding a deep, dark secret. This secret is so vile that they would produce lies so audacious to cover up their secret hate of minorities.
As we gave into them over and over again, their hunger for power grew and grew. Now, it is a greedy monster.
Now, they will lie, kill, blame, and destroy to gain all power and control.
The lies they spew are so lethal that they don’t care who is destroyed in gaining all power and control over us.
America, it is time to pull over, grab a double-espresso, take a walk around the car, open all the windows all the way, and put the radio full-blast.
Wake up, America! We have allowed our vehicle to be taken down a road of destruction.
It is time to pull a U-turn and get back onto the road of recovery.
It is time to ask questions, demand answers, and demand that our nation be returned into the hands of “we the people.”
First and foremost, we are a nation under God, founded by God and blessed by God.
Second, no person should be judged by anyone other than God.
Thirdly, no person should be given favor or held back due to the color of their skin.
Fourth, God created us in His image. The original creator, God, wonderfully made each of us. God does not make mistakes. No person should be ashamed of their skin color, as this is how God created them.
Fifth, God does not operate in shame, guilt, hate, racism, or lies.
So if He does not operate in shame, how can we be ashamed by our skin color? Stand proudly in who God made you to be.
Sixth, we are all forgivable by God. No man can forgive our sins! We should never seek to be forgiven by a human. No person other than Jesus died for our sins. Therefore, only God, His father, can forgive our sins via Jesus.
These are trying times we are in now. Our answer is not to give up on God. He has not and will not give up on us.
We must press into Him even more. We must pursue Him with a hungry heart.
We must pray harder and more fervently than ever. America is in a spiritual battle.
If you are fearful, seek God. You are precious to Him, and He desires to protect that which is precious and unique to Him.
If you feel your faith failing, ask God to restore it. Let thankfulness and gratefulness lead the way to open your eyes to see all the goodness of God.
Hold on! Remember, it is always darkest right before the light breaks through.

We need God more than ever before!

God, where did America take a wrong turn?

no-hate-2019922_1920

God hears our prayers. God hears our cries. Right now, God knows our hearts are breaking. I believe His heart is breaking too as He watches us tear everything apart.
We are heartbroken for all the people who have died, lost their businesses, and now, are losing their faith. We have watched as our historic buildings and statues have been vandalized.
We are heartbroken at all the hate swirling around America right now.
Night after night, we watch as people devolve into the most terrible versions of themselves.
We watch as innocent Americas are beaten in the streets sometimes within an inch of their lives. What is their “crime”? They were only trying to protect themselves, their property, or their businesses.
We keep hearing that black lives matter. Yes, of course, black lives are important, but what about other lives?
When did our legal process approve for crowds of people to become judge, jury, and executioners?
When was it deemed okay to murder innocent people in the streets because we perceived they have hatred for us?
Don’t all lives matter? Aren’t all lives extraordinary?
Does God sit in heaven and say that this person’s life is more important than this other person’s?
Does He say that He will only hear a black person’s prayers because they are more important than any other white person?
No, He does not. He never will.
We are all God’s children made in His image.
His word tells us to love each other as Jesus loves us.
Will all these killings, destruction, stealing, and looting resolve the hate in our hearts? No, it will not.
Nothing we do will bring back the lives that have been lost.
Killing is wrong! God’s word tells us that.
I keep hearing that that police forling unarmed minorities is the genocide of the black race, but how can that be?
Is this true? According to statistics, there were approximately ten shootings last year that involved unarmed black individuals and the police.
Also, let me make this VERY clear. I am in no way justifying what happened to Mr. Floyd. Those officers deserve the punishment that our legal system deems appropriate. Their judgment will come from 12 of their peers and a judge.
No life should be lost to hate. Every life is remarkable and planned for by God Himself.
Now, do we truly know all the facts behind all the killings of innocent unarmed black individuals? Could it be that we are just going off of what we heard on the news?
Have we been used as pawns to do the bidding of certain people in America that want to see Her destroyed?
Some other things are bothering me too.
If black lives matter above all other lives, and we are watching genocide of the black race, why isn’t there more protesting at all the abortion clinics strategically placed in our black and brown communities?
How many innocent black and brown babies are murdered in America at these abortion clinics? Every murdered baby is a life that will never exist. Some might see this as a way to control the minority population.
To me, this is the genocide of black and brown people.
These clinics were open for business during the recent lock downs and were deemed essential businesses by some politicians.
Why aren’t we outraged by EVERY brown and black lives lost? Why are only some black lives being focused on?
Why isn’t hate in general being focused on? There are many types of hate in this world. There isn’t just hate against black people.
What about the hate that blacks have towards whites?
What about the hate that Hispanic people have towards blacks or whites?
Why aren’t we focusing on hate altogether?
Why aren’t we focusing on the hate taught to our children?
That is where hate starts. Hate is taught because no one is born with hate in their heart.
Why do we feel the need to teach hate?
What motivates that?
These are all fair questions.
We have failed at discussing the hate bubbling up from underneath us.
We have had years to discuss it, and yet we didn’t.
We let it fester. We swept it under the rug, and now we are paying the price.
I see these as all fair questions. When will we ever sit down to discuss them? Can we ever go back to have a civil discussion?
Can we even discuss things anymore without yelling and screaming at each other?
When did we lose our civility and our respect for other people?
If we focus on only one type of hate, can we ever get a handle on hate altogether?
Things will not change unless we change the hearts of humankind. Civil unrest will continue until we figure out that there is only one answer to all the hate in the world.
That answer is God! Only God can truly change a person’s heart and touch someone to restore their lives fully.
God and our Savior, Jesus are the answers.
How do we get God involved? It is simple: we pray, fast, and plant seeds for healing and restoration of America.
We must turn it over to God.
We cannot lose faith in God! No matter what we are facing and no matter how impossible it seems, God will turn it around.
Our God is a miracle-working God. Our God works in the realm of the impossible!
Time to let Him heal our wounds. Pray fervently and without ceasing. Fast a meal or a day’s meals towards this hate and civil unrest. Fast so that all anger, hatred, frustrations, fear, and anxieties will be broken off of America and off the American people.

Let’s pray:
God, forgive us. We have sinned against You, and we have taken justice into our own hands. We have broken man’s laws that You told us to obey.
God, we have murdered because we perceived someone hated us.
God, we have destroyed because we saw others doing it. We allowed anger, frustration, and a mob mentality to cloud our judgment.
God, we laughed at the suffering of others.
God, forgive us. We repent.
God, forgive us for the injustices of humanity.
God, forgive us for letting hate, anger, and frustration control and overtake us.
God, forgive us for blaming others for the shortcomings in our own lives.
God, help us.
God, hear our cries, and don’t turn away from us.
God, we are desperate for You.
God, we restore peace and civility to our nation. God let us respect each other once again.
God, place kindness, forgiveness, and love in our hearts for one another once again.
God, turn our hearts that have become cold and stone into hearts of flesh.
God, unroot all hate, frustrations, bitterness, anger, and blame from our hearts.
Father, let love grow there instead.
Father God, heal every broken heart and dissolve all fears and anxieties.
God, help our nation recover for the destruction we have caused. God, help every person and family recover what was lost. Let their new livelihoods and businesses flourish like never before. God, let this recovery be quick.
God, expose all those individuals behind this unrest. Expose all the lies told to us to make us pawns in their evil plans.
God, let them be held accountable for all the death and destruction they caused with their lies and evil plans.
God, if they did it for money or more power, expose that.
Once You expose these things, God, we will not seek revenge on them. We will let You avenge your people instead.
God, restore America quickly. God, bring back our jobs and livelihoods restore America back to Her glory.
In the name of Jesus, we pray in agreement. Amen.

If you want to accept Jesus as your Savior, here is your prayer:
God, forgive me for my sins. God, cleanse me of all unrighteousness.
God, I believe Jesus is Your Son. I believe He took my place on the cross. I accept Him as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.

God, we sent out the invitation for hate, chaos, and destruction to take over.

Riotportland-3935418_1920

Due to a unseen virus, most of the world has been on lock down for several months.
People are frustrated, angry, and confused.
We are bombarded with an onslaught of fear nonstop by a majority of the media.
Some people are desperate to go back to work, open their business, and make much-needed funds to pay their bills and feed their families.
Yet, we are being told to continue to stay home.
For the last week, we have seen the frustrations of being sheltered in place for months on end pour out onto our American streets and cities.
Along with all these frustrations, we have seen hate, bigotry, and destruction accompany it.
We have seen a man brutally killed by a police officer with a history of wrongdoing.
This officer was allowed to continue to work as a police officer by the very people we appointed and placed into office.
They did not protect us from this officer. They did not protect a man from dying in the streets in front of our eyes.
Everyone is pointing the finger of blame at everyone else. No one wants to take responsibility for this man’s death or the riots that followed, but the truth is we are all too blame.
We have allowed this. We have our children, our families, our schools, our laws to close the door on God.
We told Him we no longer needed Him. We told Him to get out with our lives with our laws.
We told Him He was no longer relevant to us and that we could handle our lives all by ourselves.
Boy, what a mistake we made! What a mess we have made!
We cannot live our lives separate from God!
What you are seeing is the frustrations of years and years of injustice spilling into our streets.
Our political leaders have overlooked many people. We allowed them to stay in control while they got more prosperous and more influential, and the American people fell deeper and deeper into poverty.
We allowed them to stay in the office while they dismantle our middle class.
We let them stay in office while one by one, they gave away our jobs.
We allowed them to stay in office while they continued to look them another way as injustices happened to their constituents.
We allowed them to stay in office while they made silly laws to help only themselves.
We allowed them to stay in control year after year.
We allowed them to stay in office year after year while allowing foreign governments to affect our laws and policies, which only benefited them.
We allowed them to make laws to murder innocent babies. We let them take our tax money and fund those murders.
They took our money, which says, “In God, we trust” to fund the murder of the most innocent of us.
Now, we have blood on our hands! We are just as guilty as they are if we said nothing and did nothing!
We have a voice, and we must use that voice. Whether it be with our votes, our calls, our emails, we must use our voice and speak up!
We allowed these individuals to stay in office, and now in some states, people cannot even go back to work.
Now, we are allowing them to trample on our God-given rights as Americans.
They told us we could not go to our houses of worship. We are instructed to stay home and not go to church.
We are told not to worship, not to pray, and not to seek God.
If anything, we need to pray more, We need to worship God more than ever.
Only God can stop all this chaos, confusion, and anger.
We must repent now! We must seek God’s face now.
We must seek Him harder than ever.
We cannot be turned away from Him. We must press in now.
Little do they know that God is omnipresent. He is everywhere at all times.
We cannot be kept from Him. He doesn’t live only in our places of worship, for He lives where we are! All He needs to show up is our worship.
Call out to Him today.
If you seek Him with a truly repentant heart, He will forgive you. Seek Him for all those who are hurting and for those who have murdered the innocent. Seek God for all of them. Stand in the gap for each of them.
Pray for the healing and restoration of our land.
Do this daily and fervently. Pursue God with a renewed passion. If you need a renewed passion, ask God for it.
I know you have been praying already. The evidence of anger, hate, and destruction is evidence of our increased prayer.
Don’t give up now even though it seems worse and hopeless. Do not give up your hope.
Hopelessness comes when our faith is lost.
Ask God for a renewed faith.
I believe we are on the verge of significant restoration and move of God.
We have to push through with our fervent prayer, faith, and our love of God.

Our American rights are under attack

god-bless-americaWP9.28.19

Today, we celebrate our Armed Forces. We say, “thank you” to each of them for their bravery, service, and dedication.
Right now, as I am typing these very words, our rights are being threatened. We have been told to stay at home, not go to work, not go outside, to only see our loved ones for medical emergencies, and not to go to our places of worship.
What?? How can this be? We are Americans. We love our freedoms! We are blessed with freedom of speech, worship, to protect ourselves, etc.
These rights are given to every citizen of America.
No law, no decree, no executive order can take these from us.
Yet, we have power-hungry government officials that seem to think they have the power to take our rights away.
We voted these officials into office, and we can vote them out of the office too. We can seek retribution in the courts. In some states, we can even recall officials.
We have to do something. We cannot lay down and let these officials strip away our rights.
If we allow our rights to be taken now, how long will it be until they do it again or find a way to take away our rights permanently.
We are being controlled and silenced.
We are silenced from speaking up about our rights and these atrocious attacks on them.
Our worship is being silenced.
That is one thing we cannot allow to happen because God desires and deserves our worship.
When we worship, mountains move, bodies are healed, minds are restored, marriages are made whole again, addictions are broken, and miracles happen.
When we worship, God moves!
Our worship makes all of heaven move on our behalf.
We cannot allow our worship to be silenced!
Our answer to this pandemic is in our worship. The answer to a vaccine is in our worship, and our economy’s recovery is in our worship. America’s breakthrough is in our worship.  America’s next level is in our worship.
Every answer is in our worship.
Whatever happens, do not allow your voice to be silenced! Do not let your worship to be taken away from you.
Now more than ever, it is crucial that you contact your Senator, Representative, Governor, major, and even the President.
All of us have to take some action now. Call, write, email, sign a petition, start a petition, or peacefully protest.
Let them know that our voices will not be silenced and that we will not sit by as our rights are stripped away.
America, stand up now. If we don’t, God help us!
Don’t give up now. I see God in the midst of all of this. He is at work. He has not and will not ever forget us.
He sees our suffering, and He hears our prayers.
Keep praying, pushing forward, and keep worshiping Him.
Pray without ceasing because that is what His word tells us to do.
Pray fervently. God’s His word says that a fervent prayer availeth much.
As we pursue God fervently, I see a mighty move of God coming because we pushed through and didn’t give up.
God will avenge America. God will restore America and all Her citizens.
I know it easy to become hopeless with so much negativity around us.
That negativity seeks to pull you into its grasps.
Now, let your faith arise. Your faith is what destroys the hopelessness. God will repay your faith because He always honors those with faith.

We are all responsible for getting America back on track.

blessed-by-godWP8.24.19

Where did America skew off the tracks of morality, civility, and tolerance? When did we allow money to be the end-all and say all? Many say that money is the root of all evil. Therefore they attest money as the blame on what has happened to America. But the truth is that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil, not money itself!
We have looked the other way as some who are super-wealthy have bulldozed the little guy. While this was taking place, we have managed to soothe ourselves with prescription drugs and illicit drugs. We have eased our tiresome burdens of providing for ourselves and our families by numbing ourselves with too much alcohol, drugs, prescriptions, or other addictions.
The little guy, the average American citizen, has been bulldozed as our factories closed, and our jobs were shipped overseas so that men, women, and children in a foreign nation could earn very little money doing these same jobs.
So you see, it is not only the American citizens that have been bulldozed. Citizens in many nations have become the pawns of greedy business people and their corporate boards.
The American citizen has been played by slick politicians who lie, deceive, and rob us.
While many Americans have become less prosperous, these deceivers in our government get more abundantly wealthy and more prosperous. They dare to enrich their family members, too, with their schemes and tricks.
They bask in their riches while we are forced to work 2, 3, or 4 jobs to survive.
This survival does not include healthcare, dental care, or family vacations. It only includes working ourselves almost to death to have a decent place to live, reliable transportation, food on our tables, and clothes on our backs.
Why did we stop caring? Why did we become so gullible to their deception and tricks? Why did we look the other way as they pushed our abundant nation into ruins?
We listened to the media who tell us what to think and what to do. We became like robots doing the very thing that they wanted us to do.
We became so wrapped up in trying to survive that we told ourselves it wasn’t necessary to vote. We said to ourselves that it was okay to let someone else step in and decide for us with their votes
Now I am no way mocking anyone or blaming anyone. I, too, became too wrapped up in making a living that I didn’t pay attention to what was happening. We trusted those who took advantage of us.
But I have decided that I can no longer sit by and watch as people squander God’s gift of America.
The policies of the politically correct have utterly destroyed the once beautiful state of California.
I am tired of being told that our rights don’t matter and that the Constitution is no longer valid because it is too old, outdated, and needs to be rewritten, revamped, or done away with.
Our rights do matter! We elect the individuals in our government. The only reason they are in a position of power is that we put them there. As we placed them there, we can remove them.
I am very tired of political promises from candidates that never fulfill their campaign promises. Even now, for example, some candidates have packaged insurance for all into a slick marketing package.
What is a government-run medical system where all insurance companies are eliminated? That means no more private insurance. It also means more taxes for the middle class and those at or below the poverty line. How else will this massage undertaking get paid for? These false advertising campaigns are misleading the American people. It is time to discover the real truth underneath their promises instead of just listening to their “promises.”
We need to decide to get involved. American’s future is at stake. Our futures are too crucial to continue to do the same, which has been very little.
I am not telling you who to vote for. That is between God and you, but you cannot vote on feelings. Ask your self what is right and wrong. Seek God in prayer to ask for direction, wisdom, and discernment.
We all have to remember that God gave us a voice with our vote, and we must use it. We all will be held responsible by God Himself for our actions, and that includes our voting.
We cannot sit on the sidelines and complain and do nothing with our vote.
Now, you must ask yourself which candidate believes and upholds life. Who of all the candidates believes that life begins at conception? We are all children of God. There are no grey areas in God’s word, and one of His commandments instructs us not to kill.
Each life is precious, planned for, and anticipated. Abortion is the murder of innocent life. This issue may make you uncomfortable to hear or perhaps even angry, but it is the truth. God sees abortion as murder. Now there are a lot of opposing messages out there, but remember, I am the only a messenger. I can only end this paragraph by saying, “thank God” for His never-ending forgiveness!
God’s word is God’s word. It is so powerful that not even He can change or alter it. Both of these items are, of course, two whole separate blogs by themselves. Once you are face to face with God, you will have the ability to verify if this is true or not, but for now, we must stay focused on the current issue.
Ask yourself which candidate has created jobs, made it possible for more businesses to add more jobs, and brought jobs back to America from other countries, etc.
Ask yourself which candidate wants all citizens of America to prosper, to achieve the American dream.
Ask yourself which candidate plans to uphold ALL our Constitutional rights.
Ask yourself which candidate wants a smaller government so that we are not trampled on by a significant and overbearing government.
Ask yourself which candidate wants the very best for America and all Her citizens.
Ask yourself which candidate wants to protect America and Her citizens at all costs.
Ask yourself which candidate wants to make sure America has top-notch airports, schools, roads, and bridges.
Ask yourself which candidate wants America to stay on Her successful road of capitalism.
Ask yourself which candidate wants to decrease homelessness by encouraging drug treatment, by not allowing it to become so easy to become homeless in the first place.
Ask yourself which candidate wants to end the corruption in our government by exposing and rooting it out.
I could go on and on, but these are just a few of the most critical issues America is facing.
Let your decision be based on facts and do not let your feelings or emotions lead you.
Ask yourself which candidate will point America in the right direction and keep our foundation of God in place.
We are a great country because of our tolerance, our acceptance, our love, our generosity, our graciousness, and mostly because we love God.
America was founded on God, and therefore, we must stay founded on Him. He will guide us through these difficult times. He is the light of our righteousness.
Seek Him before election day so that He can guild you.
Please remember, if you pick a candidate that does not win, do not become bitter, hateful, and spiteful about it. See it as God’s will and move on. Do not let your heart grow infested with hate and anger. Seek God in this, too, to ask Him to help you to move on and not become bitter and angry.
We must not diminish who and what God is. He is there for every situation we face in life.

We can no longer be silent as our magnificent nation is run into ruin!

god-bless-americaWP6.1.19

If you care about our nation, it is time to get involved in how this nation is being run.
If you are an American citizen, you are blessed! This nation is the best in the world. I am not bragging or being overly cocky as I am only stating the truth.
If you are blessed enough to travel around the world, you know this to be true. So many nations live in poverty with corrupt governments or leaders that do not care about its citizens.
America is a great nation! I am thankful that God bestowed me the gift of being an American citizen. I thank Him often for this gift.
This land was founded on God, blessed by God, and continues to be a beacon of God’s love and hope to all other nations.
We are blessed to live in a nation where we can elect the officials who run it.
Lately, we all have done a poor job of keeping tabs on these individuals.
I get it. I know you are super busy. You have a job or jobs, a family, and a ton of other responsibilities to tend to.
I am not criticizing any of you. I know how overwhelming life can become at times with all of our responsibilities.
I work two jobs, have a family, etc., but I made a decision that I had to get more involved in the way this nation was headed.
It appears that elected officials who have been in office for long periods have placed their pocketbooks, families, hunger for power, and their agenda in front of the good of America and Her citizens.
For many years now, they have gone unchecked and allegedly managed to become corrupt.
It seems that their main concern is not for the citizens for this mighty nation but for allowing, promoting, and protecting people who gain access to this nation through illegal methods.
Now, the people running to replace our current President have also shown loyalty to those who come here illegally. They have stated that they will take the hard-earned money of American taxpayers to foot the bill for social services to assist those who gained access to our country by breaking our laws.
They have also stated that they will raise the taxes of American citizens to take care of all these illegals immigrants.
One of these individuals stated that he would raise the taxes of people who make a mere $29,000 a year to help pay for all the social services that these illegal individuals will need.
What about our citizens? Who is taking care and looking out for our American citizens who are elderly, sick, have mental issues, disabled, a veteran, or those who are living in extreme poverty?
There is no option but to get involved. We can’t sit around anymore and complain and yet do nothing to help.
You may not have the time to take on every issue, but there are a few that are too important to be ignored anymore.
Pick 2 or 3 issues that are important to you, your family, and your community.
If I had to pick only 3, I would say that my top 3 are abortion, the budget deficit, and the revitalization of America, which includes, American jobs, American wages, etc.)
Apologies, but I would have to add one more to my plate. That being the reinstating of God back into our nation, our schools, our lives, and our families.
I truly believe God will ask each one of us on the day of judgment what we did to change things for the better.
We have a responsibility to each other to hold our leaders accountable for any corruption and lies that they have committed. If they have broken the law, they too must be held accountable.
If they refuse to do what is best for America, then it is time to vote them out of office.
We can no longer allow them to stay in office with the agenda of themselves first and foremost, illegals immigrants second, and American citizens in last place.
When they entered their position in government, they took an oath to uphold our Constitution and to protect the citizens of this nation above everything else.
They placed their hand on the bible and swore to uphold the Constitution and to protect us. I guess they think that this small action of their hand on the bible isn’t very significant.
Well, I hate to be the one to burst their bubble, but when they placed their hand on God’s word and swore with their very own words, they swore and promised to complete the responsibilities placed on them. They openly and willingly made a promise to us, but most of all, to God Himself.
Now, God honors His word and His promises, and He expects the same from us. If we placed our hand on His word and swore or affirmed that our actions and our words will conform to what is expected of us, we are entering into a covenant/contract/promise with God.
Affirming that we will speak the truth or that we promise to uphold certain things or people above all other things is a serious business.
Those who placed their hand on the bible and swore, to tell the truth, or to uphold certain things will have to answer to God Himself when they fall off that path.
Next time you have to place your hand on the bible and swore or affirmed, to tell the truth, please pick your words very carefully. Lying or purposely misleading people after you place your hand on the bible and affirm to be truthful is something not be messed with.
I, for one, do not want to know what the consequences are for misleading or lying after affirming I would be truthful and not misleading.
Each one of us will answer to God for every word we spoke, for actions that we purposely used or sought to bring hurt, despair, or agony to others.
Again, this also reflects how powerful our words are.
Again, this nation was a gift to us from God. We are responsible for how it is run. We must speak up when we see abuse. It is time to get America back on the right track.
Regardless of how much we have to go on in our lives, we have to get involved. When you are asked by God why you did nothing to change how specific individuals where corrupting His gift, what will you tell Him?
What excuse will you give God? There is no excuse good enough. And to stand in front of God and give excuses, which are mere lies we tell ourselves to ease our guilt, shame, or to make us feel better, will in no way suffice for our inaction.

How many American towns have been decimated by the greed of vulture capitalism?

GodKnowsWP9.1419

 

About three years ago, I wrote a blog about a trip we took to the beach. In that blog, I discussed how gutted our small town and cities had become. I also explained how these towns and small cities were littered with empty storefronts, empty factories, and run-down empty houses.
Has any of this changed, gotten better, or has it improved? In some aspects, it has and then again some cities or towns are still suffering from lack of jobs.
Is the economy still the culprit? I don’t think so, not in the way it was before. The improved economy has given way for a new way for small towns and cities to be depleted, left on life support, and nearly dead.
What is this new way that these small towns are being drained and left for dead? It is called vulture capitalism.
Have you heard of it? I only recently did myself. Large hedge fund companies come in, buy tons of stock at a low price, and influence the way a company they now own stock in conducts business. They don’t do it for the traditional thoughts of making things better for the community, its employees, etc., but do it strictly for all the money they will make.
These hedge fund companies are wealthy. I am talking about billion-dollar companies. They force the sale of large companies by purchasing large amounts of stock in that company then proceed to influence the current owners or board. This influence and pressure to sell will bring negative changes to its employees and in turn, the community and other businesses. The new owner that takes over will get rid of employees, often make employee benefits disappear, and they cut costs in every possible way.
This, in turn, affects its former employees. They no longer have a job, which in turn affects the other business in that community. That former employee no longer provides business to local grocery stores, building supply stores, etc. That one employee who loses a job has a negative trickle-down effect on other companies in that same community.
Now that negative trickle-down effect was multiplied in that same community by 2,000. That is how many people lost their jobs in that same community. When Cabala’s was forced to sell to Pro Bass Shop, 2000 people in the same town were instantly out of work.
Cabela’s was forced by the hedge fund company to sell even though they had a profitable business. While this sale was happening, the hedge fund company sat back and watched as the stock they owned in Cabela’s went from $38 per share to $68 per share. Once the stock rose, the hedge fund company bailed. They sold their soaring stocks, making a cool $90 million.
Once the hedge fund company was gone, the community was left to suffer the consequences of the decisions that they had no choice in making. They were left holding the bag while the hedge fund company walked away with millions and their plans to take over and destroy the next company and town.
Allowing these hedge fund companies to destroy the lives of innocent Americans should not be permitted. There should be some way to hold these hedge fund companies liable for destroying the lives of innocent Americans. There should be some way these Americans can regain their lives and livelihoods back.
Our President often talks about improving the lives of all Americans. I know in my heart that he means it. Often things happen, and we are left with no information that these things ever took place. Our media no longer brings attention to important stories/issues of people or companies that single-handedly destroy the lives and communities of our fellow Americans.
We have to demand better from our media. We need to ask our President to eliminate the carried interest tax loophole that enriches these hedge fund companies. After all, this was one of his promises.
We need to demand that vulture capitalism be banned in America. We need to request the change in our tax codes that allows these million dollar companies to pay little to no taxes.
If this can happen in one particular town in America, this can happen anywhere in America.
America has always done wonderfully with capitalism. Many Americans have achieved the American dream. Many more Americans will continue to pursue the American dream, but then, some are still suffering from poverty. They are still struggling and living paycheck to paycheck.
When did money and power become more important to America than God? When did massive greed take over the hearts of so many people and force, so man men to turn their worship of God to money?
We have to do better for all Americans. All Americans deserve the ability to achieve the American dream. If you wonder what exactly you can do about this, wonder no more. Contact your Congressperson, write the President, or write your Representative. Don’t just call or write once and call it a day. Try calling or writing multiple times. Also, contact the media channel you watch and demand more relevant stories. These types of stores would include stories that impact our fellow communities and our fellow Americans. We have to do something to help our American family.
