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.

During this pandemic, here is a bible verse of encouragement.

shutterstock_ThePowerOfWordsWP2.8.20

7.11.20 This post was written back in March of this year. God brought to attention that perhaps there are people out there looking for places to find the words and correlating scripture for things like protection, healing, breaking fear etc.

When He did that, I decided to repost this. Remember how powerful prayer is. Never doubt its power and never allow anyone to talk you out of prayer because they believe it is useless.

Our prayer is pure power.  It is our communication with our God who is all powerful and holds all power. Our prayer asks Him to intervene in our lives and situations. Remember God’s word in Deuteronomy 31:6.

Never give up on prayers.  If possible, come in agreement with someone about the things you are praying for. Our agreed prayer is power multiplied.

What does God’s name say about Him? Do you know all the names of God?
Here are just a few of them.
Emmanuel – God with us.
https://www.ibelieve.com/faith/10-powerful-names-of-god-and-what-they-mean-for-us-today.html
God’s word is unchangeable, unfaltering, unwavering, and will stand forever(Matt24:35).
God’s word cannot be altered even by Him.
God holds His word above Himself.
What does this mean for us? Well, this says that God’s word will not fail us. His word will come to pass. His word is our weapon to use against the chaos of this world.
As we apply our daily armor of God, His word is referenced as our sword, which is our weapon!
His name is our peace, our healing, our provision, our protection, our restorer, our defender, our victory, etc.
His name is all the things we will ever need during our lifetime.
So how can you benefit from His word and His name right now? Well, that is the perfect question to ask.
If you believe God is God, that He is who He says He is, that His word cannot fail and that His word is a powerful weapon, then you have won half the battle.
Right now, we are facing a deadly disease. Now is the time we need God’s presence, His direction, and His answers for this difficult time.
God is not like us, and He does not do things the way we do. His ideas, His thoughts, His wisdom, His knowledge is above our same traits. This is why He is God.
We think words aren’t a big deal. We say whatever we want whenever we want, never giving a second thought about the impact those spoken words will have.
The words we speak will either cause life or death. Our words will take us on a path of blessings or curses. Whomever we speak words over, we, therefore, have impacted their life in some way, shape, or form.
Negative words spoken by other people over us can be denied or unaccepted by us.
Again, using the utterance of spoken words, we have the right to accept words spoken by someone over us.
Again, using the power of words, we have the right to deny spoken words of death over our lives.
See, words are potent! God used words to create the universe. He spoke the sun, the moon, the starts, the plant, all wildlife, the ocean, etc. into existence with His mere words.
Just like our Father in heaven, our words have power too!
We can speak things into existence, as long as they align with God’s will for our lives, according to God’s word.
If we are sick, we can speak our healing into existence using God’s word (https://www.openbible.info/topics/with_his_stripes_we_are_healed).
If we are addicted, we can break the power of addiction over our lives using God’s word (https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/bible-verses-about-addiction/).
If we are afflicted with depression, we can speak God’s word over our lives or the lives of our loved ones and break depression (https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/depression-bible-verses/).
If we are facing a world pandemic, we can speak God’s word to call for His safety and protection over our family and our loved ones (https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/bible-verses-about-protection/).
If we are facing the loss of a job and the ability to provide a living for our family, we can speak God’s word of blessings and prosperity over our lives (https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/God~s-Provision).
We need to remind God of His word all the time. Not that He forgets His word but to build our faith.
In essence, to tell God, this is who You are, and this is what You said You would do.
Hence the verse faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of Christ (Rom10:17).
We must hear, speak, and proclaim His word, His goodness, and His love for us all the time.
When we utter His living word over our lives at all times, this builds faith and stirs the atmosphere with our expectations.
We sit in anticipation, waiting, and watching for the miracles of God. And they must appear because we are stirring the atmosphere with our spoken utterances and with our worship.
You must know how powerful words are. Our words can bless or curse. They can lift or tear down, or they can build up or destroy.
Please don’t think that you can apply God’s principle of blessing over your life for one day and expect to see miracles the next day.
The process of speaking life, protection, provision is a lifetime daily job.
Now, I know what you are thinking. You probably think that this will be exhausting.
We are so used to instant gratification. The majority of the time, God is NOT an immediate gratification type of God.
He wants you to be in it for the long haul. He wants you to pursue Him diligently with your whole heart.
Now once you see the manifestation of God’s spoken word in your life, this will become like second nature.
At this point, you will continue to go from level to level in your faith, your blessings, and your prosperity.
Some of us will find this a little challenging to speak positive words all the time. Some of us will find it a little difficult to think before we speak.
God will help with this too. If you want to pursue this, you will have to go to God in prayer to ask for His help.
Do not be ashamed or embarrassed to ask God for help. God is not the God of guilt, shame, and embarrassment. He is always the God of caring, love, nurturing, and peace.

God’s protection – surely He will protect us from this deadly pestilence!

deadly-virus_2.29.20WP

The word on most of all the news channels is PANIC!
This world is saying panic, buy months of supplies, prepare for the worse, be afraid, be very afraid, don’t buy that car, or that house right now, hold onto all your money.
These words are fear talking! Fear blurs your vision. Fear makes you do things you would never do.
Fear opens the opportunity for those peddling the fear to control you. Fear lets them dictate your actions.
Fear takes your power and gives it to someone or something else.
Do not let fear and panic dictate your life.
There is only one person that should have control over your life and your decisions. That is God.
Never give up the right to make your own decisions up to anyone. Even when you seek God’s guidance and instructions, we still have the right to do what we want. We are not forced by God to choose His direction after we seek it.
Now, it is time to stop, pray, plan, and prepare.
There is a way to prepare. Don’t prepare in a panic!

Most of all, speak God’s word over this situation! Every situation we will ever face, we can find God’s word/instructions for it in the bible.
You need to conquer fear, speak God’s word over it (Deuteronomy 31:6)!

You need God to spare you and your family for the wrath of Coronavirus? Speak God’s word over it (Psalm 91:1-16).
You need peace, speak God’s word over it(Phil4:7).
You need wisdom, speak God’s word over it(James 1:5).
You need protection, speak God’s word over it (2Thes3:3).
You need joy, speak God’s word over it(Romans 15:13).
You need healing, speak God’s word over it (Psalm 41:3).
Use God’s word! See, God’s word stands forever! It is so powerful that even God cannot change it, alter it, and He must abide by it.
The enemy knows God’s words too! And he knows that God’s word stands above all.
If you know who you are, who’s you are, what you deserve, your rights, and God’s word, there is nothing you cannot accomplish!
We are facing a battle in unknown territory right now but speak God’s word over it.
God has great plans for your life; premature death is not in His plans for your life!
God wants you to live an abundant life. How do I know that? God’s word says so.

Speak life! Open your mouth and proclaim God’s goodness via His word!
You have to continually remind yourself of what God says about you via His word. You, the devil, and God need to hear those words spoken on a repetitive basis.
Don’t think this is a one time and done deal. You must keep uttering these words aloud until you see the manifestation of God’s promises in your life.
In our society of instant fixes, instant answers, and immediate remedies, we have to show patience.
Once you hear these words spoken over, over, over, and over again, you will start to build your faith, your appreciation of God’s word, and the knowledge of your Godly inheritance.
You were created to flourish, prosper, and fulfill your Godly purpose.
Do not let anyone or anything steal that away from you.
Remember, God’s word says that heaven and earth shall pass away, BUT God’s word will stand forever! AMEN!!!

How do you find happiness?

 

Don'tWorryBeHappy

Right now, there are so many unhappy people in this world. Depression, drug use, addictions, etc. are all on the rise. Why? Because people are not happy.
For months, we have been locked in our homes due to the COVID-19 virus.
Many were not able to work. If these people had been able to work, that would have relieved some of the pressure of the lockdowns.
On top of that, we were told not to travel and not to see our families
Our leaders told us not to go to our places of worship and not to gather together for sporting events.
Now, just as things are easing up on the lockdowns, we have had mass protests, rioting, looting, and all-out chaos in the streets.
Next, we were told to stay inside to be safe and not get caught up in the craziness that could erupt.
Then, if there weren’t enough, people’s businesses were burned down, thus delaying the return to work for a lot of people. In some instances, this is a permanent job loss as those business owners could not afford fire insurance.
Every day is an opportunity to find happiness in your life.
Now there are more unhappy people than ever. For our sanity, we must find some happiness in our lives.
Happiness cannot be found in a thing or a person. It can’t be found in a new car, a new house, a new significant other, or in the hottest new tech gadget.
Happiness is found in the gratefulness of how blessed you are.
Many ask, “What is the key to happiness in life?  Many search for years looking for the answer.  Some pay lots of money to so called gurus, life coaches, or therapists searching for this answer.
Here is the answer plain and simple: It is gratefulness. Happiness begins with thankfulness.

I know it seems simple and you might not even thing that it works but try it.  Take one day and speak only thankfulness for everything in your life.

Speaking thankfulness changes your atmosphere.  It clears all the clouds of doubt and disbelief away.

It allows you to see better.  It opens ups your eyes to see new things. It lets you see just how bless you truly are.
Some people will think they have nothing to be happy for, but that is incorrect.
Find at least one thing you are grateful for in your life. No matter how small or minute it is.
Thank God that you woke up this morning safely in your own nice, warm, beautiful bed, that you had food to eat, that you woke up to live another day of life, that your family is going well.
If you are blessed enough to have a job at this time, be thankful for that. Be grateful that you have the opportunity to provide for your family. Be happy that you are not relying on anyone or anything to help take care of your family.
Remember, gratefulness always invites happiness in.
If you don’t think those things are not worthy of being grateful for, then you are not aware of the extreme poverty that a lot of people outside the U.S. are facing.
If you are an American citizen, you are more prosperous and incredibly blessed. More so than a majority of the world’s population.
With things so tense and ever-changing, we have to focus on things that will sustain us.
There is one thing that never changes. That is God. He is always loving, faithful, and dependable.
Start looking for the things in your life to give thanks for.
Don’t be embarrassed if it is a tiny thing. Starting little will always leave room for big things to take its place.
Giving thanks to God for small blessings opens your eyes to seeing all blessings He has bestowed upon you.

I feel hopeless and alone. Have you heard yourself say that yet?

hands-disinfection.mask_8.2.20

 

Hopelessness. Can you feel it? Have you, at times, been feeling it?
I have. It isn’t all day every day that I have felt it, but it is there. I have been fighting hard to combat it.
It is a terrible feeling. Seeing everything as worthless and not worth the effort because there is no point.
I know I am not the only one dealing with this heaviness.
I am weary. I am tired of all this silliness of Covid-19. I am tired of the fighting, the name-calling, the blaming, the suffering, the horrible stories, face coverings, the death, the riots, and all the hate.
I miss our old way of life.
Funny, but it feels like so very long ago that things were different.
I miss kids sporting events, picnics, going to the movies, going to small gatherings, going out to dinner with a large group of friends.
I miss hugs, kisses, and snuggling close to the ones you love.
We all want the old way back, but I don’t think we will ever be there again.
As I mentioned, I have been fighting hard against this feeling of hopelessness. I know God doesn’t want me to feel this way.
So, I pray. I worship, and I thank God for what He has done for my family and where He has brought us from.
I have to say that thankfulness is vital in fighting hopelessness.
It helps to bring the most important things back into focus.
What’s most important to me? Well, of course, God is, my family is, our protection, our safety, our stability, and our beautiful nation.
I hate to see it torn apart by those who don’t appreciate what a blessing it is to live in America.
There are those living in America who see it as a racist nation full of citizens who hate them.
If you hate living in a particular town or city, don’t you make plans to move? I know we did. We didn’t like where we were living anymore and decided to leave. Now, we are more content in the place we live in.
If you hate America, why not leave? Why stay in a place that you hate? I don’t get that. That doesn’t make sense to me.
Life is too short to stay in a place that you hate.
Please don’t tell me that you can’t move because of the shortage of money. There are ways to solve this, but it is going to take hard work. Some have the means to move, but they stay put. They would rather stay where they are and complain all of the time about how miserable they are.
If America is so terrible, then why are so many foreigners fighting to get here? Why do they sometimes risk their lives to do so?
America is a place where all who work hard can accomplish great things.
America offers excellent opportunities to all Her citizens.
Yes, some people may have a harder road to follow to accomplish those great things, but I know it can be done.
Making excuses and lying to yourself about why you can’t get ahead or can’t make a decent living or get an adequate education isn’t going to change things.
Excuses are lies we tell ourselves to appease our guilt, shame, or inadequacies.
It takes hard work and determination, focus, and above all, God to accomplish great things.
If doing this were easy, everyone would do it. But that is our problem, right? We all want it easy. We all want instant access to money, a lovely home, beautiful cars, etc. but we don’t want to put in the hard work it takes to gain those blessings.
I am sorry, but America is not a nation full of systemic racism. If it were, how did Barack Obama get voted into the office of the President, twice?
If America were systemically racist, we wouldn’t have any senators, representatives, mayors, governors, or attorney generals of color.
In a nation of systemic racism, this would not be the case. It would never happen. Those individuals would have never been voted into their positions.
America’s economy is on the verge of collapse. She is teetering on the edge of destruction. Do you know what kind of world this will become if the American economy collapses?

The effect of such a horrific event would be felt throughout the world. This event would cause other economies to collapse too.
Every living human would feel that devastation. America would plummet into sheer chaos.
There are those fighting to destroy Her and those who are struggling to preserve Her.
Why can’t we stop the fighting and start discussing how exactly we got here?
It seems we can’t even talk anymore. Only yelling and shouting happen anymore.
What happened to listen to each other? That skill has gone out of the window.
We can’t keep saying that the other side is wrong and we are right. If we don’t stop thinking that way, we will never fix our problems. We need to stop blaming, name-calling, and hate.
What kind of nation are we leaving generations to come after us?
Despite what you say or how you think, America was founded on the principle that all Her citizens will have the same justice and that each person is equal to every other citizen.
Yes, some wrote our Constitution that were slave owners. Yes, they made mistakes, but so have you. We all have! That is what it is like to be a human. We make mistakes, but those mistakes don’t define our future and our legacy.
Stop focusing on the past. We can’t do anything to change it. It doesn’t matter how many people we blame, how many people we hate, how many names we call, how many statues we rip down, it will not change the past.
We have to find an amicable solution. For the sake of our children, we have to figure this out.
Our nation cannot survive without God. This is a fact because we have tried it without Him and look where we have ended up.
I know there are many of you out there who are searching for answers. You are wondering, is God real. Well, He is real. Call out to Him before it is too late.
He is there now answering us, but there will come a date when He won’t answer anymore. When will that day come? I don’t know. Only God knows when that fateful day will arrive, but don’t risk it. Call out to Him now.
God is our one real answer.
Do you remember how God allowed the destruction of a whole city when He was tired of humankind’s sins? Do you remember when He destroyed the entire world with rain because He had enough with the wickedness of humanity? I pray that we haven’t reached that point yet.
Now, God will not flood the whole earth again because of His promise not to do so.
I feel in my heart that God isn’t done with humanity yet.
I genuinely see one more great move of God before He is ready to take His hands of protection off of us.
I know so many of you are searching for peace, happiness, safety, and answers.
God is the answer to all the questions you have.

Can we pray together?
God, forgive me for feeling so hopeless. God, I know You are not the one causing all this turmoil, chaos, and fighting.
Father, I know You only want the best for my loved ones and me.
God, restore my faith. Help me see the good still in this world. Help me to speak life into every waking moment that I am alive.
Thank You that You have provided us with a weapon to protect ourselves. It is called the bible.
Thank You, God, that Your word is alive and endures forever.
Thank you that You must abide by Your words of protection, peace, prosperity, hope, happiness, and love.
God, help me stay focused on You. God, when my heart feels heavy with sadness and hopelessness, please convict me.
Holy Spirit, remind me that with my mere words, I can break the spirit of hopelessness, helplessness, fear, depression, and hate off both myself and my family. Remind me that my words have power. My words can make impossible mountains move because God said so.
God, Your word tells us that You will protect us from the deadly pestilence.
God, remind me to read and pray Psalm 91 every day. Help me teach it to my family so they can too be safe.
God, remind me to pray and put on God’s full armor daily for both myself and my loved ones.
Father, remind me to pray to help rebuild the hedges of protection around my nation, my community, my city, my family, and myself.
Holy Spirit, please remind us to use thankful words to change the atmosphere of our emotions, our outlook, and our feelings.
God, restore my ability to listen to the ideas and thoughts of others. God, give me patience when I met with someone who’s outlook is different than mine.
God restore humanity’s decencies. Help us, Father, to no hate one another but to love and cherish each other once again.
Father, take our hearts of stone and cause them to become flesh again.
God, teach us to respect one another again.
God, remove the anger and frustration out of our hearts and minds.
Father, most of all, turn our hearts back to You. God, help our children!
God, help us to stop teaching our children how to hate others. Help us teach our children love and patience.
God, we ask all these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.

If you would like to receive Jesus as your personal 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.

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.

I feel hopeless and alone. Have you heard yourself say that yet?

hands-disinfection.mask_8.2.20

 

Hopelessness. Can you feel it? Have you, at times, been feeling it?
I have. It isn’t all day every day that I have felt it, but it is there. I have been fighting hard to combat it.
It is a terrible feeling. Seeing everything as worthless and not worth the effort because there is no point.
I know I am not the only one dealing with this heaviness.
I am weary. I am tired of all this silliness of Covid-19. I am tired of the fighting, the name-calling, the blaming, the suffering, the horrible stories, face coverings, the death, the riots, and all the hate.
I miss our old way of life.
Funny, but it feels like so very long ago that things were different.
I miss kids sporting events, picnics, going to the movies, going to small gatherings, going out to dinner with a large group of friends.
I miss hugs, kisses, and snuggling close to the ones you love.
We all want the old way back, but I don’t think we will ever be there again.
As I mentioned, I have been fighting hard against this feeling of hopelessness. I know God doesn’t want me to feel this way.
So, I pray. I worship, and I thank God for what He has done for my family and where He has brought us from.
I have to say that thankfulness is vital in fighting hopelessness.
It helps to bring the most important things back into focus.
What’s most important to me? Well, of course, God is, my family is, our protection, our safety, our stability, and our beautiful nation.
I hate to see it torn apart by those who don’t appreciate what a blessing it is to live in America.
There are those living in America who see it as a racist nation full of citizens who hate them.
If you hate living in a particular town or city, don’t you make plans to move? I know we did. We didn’t like where we were living anymore and decided to leave. Now, we are more content in the place we live in.
If you hate America, why not leave? Why stay in a place that you hate? I don’t get that. That doesn’t make sense to me.
Life is too short to stay in a place that you hate.
Please don’t tell me that you can’t move because of the shortage of money. There are ways to solve this, but it is going to take hard work. Some have the means to move, but they stay put. They would rather stay where they are and complain all of the time about how miserable they are.
If America is so terrible, then why are so many foreigners fighting to get here? Why do they sometimes risk their lives to do so?
America is a place where all who work hard can accomplish great things.
America offers excellent opportunities to all Her citizens.
Yes, some people may have a harder road to follow to accomplish those great things, but I know it can be done.
Making excuses and lying to yourself about why you can’t get ahead or can’t make a decent living or get an adequate education isn’t going to change things.
Excuses are lies we tell ourselves to appease our guilt, shame, or inadequacies.
It takes hard work and determination, focus, and above all, God to accomplish great things.
If doing this were easy, everyone would do it. But that is our problem, right? We all want it easy. We all want instant access to money, a lovely home, beautiful cars, etc. but we don’t want to put in the hard work it takes to gain those blessings.
I am sorry, but America is not a nation full of systemic racism. If it were, how did Barack Obama get voted into the office of the President, twice?
If America were systemically racist, we wouldn’t have any senators, representatives, mayors, governors, or attorney generals of color.
In a nation of systemic racism, this would not be the case. It would never happen. Those individuals would have never been voted into their positions.
America’s economy is on the verge of collapse. She is teetering on the edge of destruction. Do you know what kind of world this will become if the American economy collapses?

The effect of such a horrific event would be felt throughout the world. This event would cause other economies to collapse too.
Every living human would feel that devastation. America would plummet into sheer chaos.
There are those fighting to destroy Her and those who are struggling to preserve Her.
Why can’t we stop the fighting and start discussing how exactly we got here?
It seems we can’t even talk anymore. Only yelling and shouting happen anymore.
What happened to listen to each other? That skill has gone out of the window.
We can’t keep saying that the other side is wrong and we are right. If we don’t stop thinking that way, we will never fix our problems. We need to stop blaming, name-calling, and hate.
What kind of nation are we leaving generations to come after us?
Despite what you say or how you think, America was founded on the principle that all Her citizens will have the same justice and that each person is equal to every other citizen.
Yes, some wrote our Constitution that were slave owners. Yes, they made mistakes, but so have you. We all have! That is what it is like to be a human. We make mistakes, but those mistakes don’t define our future and our legacy.
Stop focusing on the past. We can’t do anything to change it. It doesn’t matter how many people we blame, how many people we hate, how many names we call, how many statues we rip down, it will not change the past.
We have to find an amicable solution. For the sake of our children, we have to figure this out.
Our nation cannot survive without God. This is a fact because we have tried it without Him and look where we have ended up.
I know there are many of you out there who are searching for answers. You are wondering, is God real. Well, He is real. Call out to Him before it is too late.
He is there now answering us, but there will come a date when He won’t answer anymore. When will that day come? I don’t know. Only God knows when that fateful day will arrive, but don’t risk it. Call out to Him now.
God is our one real answer.
Do you remember how God allowed the destruction of a whole city when He was tired of humankind’s sins? Do you remember when He destroyed the entire world with rain because He had enough with the wickedness of humanity? I pray that we haven’t reached that point yet.
Now, God will not flood the whole earth again because of His promise not to do so.
I feel in my heart that God isn’t done with humanity yet.
I genuinely see one more great move of God before He is ready to take His hands of protection off of us.
I know so many of you are searching for peace, happiness, safety, and answers.
God is the answer to all the questions you have.

Can we pray together?
God, forgive me for feeling so hopeless. God, I know You are not the one causing all this turmoil, chaos, and fighting.
Father, I know You only want the best for my loved ones and me.
God, restore my faith. Help me see the good still in this world. Help me to speak life into every waking moment that I am alive.
Thank You that You have provided us with a weapon to protect ourselves. It is called the bible.
Thank You, God, that Your word is alive and endures forever.
Thank you that You must abide by Your words of protection, peace, prosperity, hope, happiness, and love.
God, help me stay focused on You. God, when my heart feels heavy with sadness and hopelessness, please convict me.
Holy Spirit, remind me that with my mere words, I can break the spirit of hopelessness, helplessness, fear, depression, and hate off both myself and my family. Remind me that my words have power. My words can make impossible mountains move because God said so.
God, Your word tells us that You will protect us from the deadly pestilence.
God, remind me to read and pray Psalm 91 every day. Help me teach it to my family so they can too be safe.
God, remind me to pray and put on God’s full armor daily for both myself and my loved ones.
Father, remind me to pray to help rebuild the hedges of protection around my nation, my community, my city, my family, and myself.
Holy Spirit, please remind us to use thankful words to change the atmosphere of our emotions, our outlook, and our feelings.
God, restore my ability to listen to the ideas and thoughts of others. God, give me patience when I met with someone who’s outlook is different than mine.
God restore humanity’s decencies. Help us, Father, to no hate one another but to love and cherish each other once again.
Father, take our hearts of stone and cause them to become flesh again.
God, teach us to respect one another again.
God, remove the anger and frustration out of our hearts and minds.
Father, most of all, turn our hearts back to You. God, help our children!
God, help us to stop teaching our children how to hate others. Help us teach our children love and patience.
God, we ask all these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.

If you would like to receive Jesus as your personal 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 will not allow this pandemic to destroy America.

 

VirusInRedLetter-4884862_1920

 

What if there were a terrible pandemic in the world, and it hit America in the worst way? What if there was hope in several medicines during this pandemic, but these medications were being downplayed or even talked about as being too harmful?
What if during this pandemic, all you heard on most of the significant newscasts, newspapers, or internet news sites were negative news purposely poised to instill fear at all times?
What if you were told to stay in your home during this pandemic, not go to work, and only travel to and from specific places for food or essential goods?
What if during this pandemic, only certain people were allowed to work and make a living while others were at home drawing money from the government?
What if, during this pandemic, you were told not to celebrate our nation’s birthday? What if you were told that if you did, you are a racist?
What if you were told that if you were caucasian during this pandemic, you were guilty of something silly like “white privilege”?
What if, during this pandemic, you were told that you are a racist? Racism in your family line was predetermined because you belong to Caucasian parents, great grandparents, and great-great-grandparents. Since they were white, they were automatically racist. And because you are white and related to them, this predetermines you as a racist too.
What if, during this pandemic, you were told that only the lives of black Americans mattered?
What if during this pandemic, there were riots, looting, buildings set on fire, and mobs of people in the street beating up ordinary American citizens who were only trying to defend themselves, their homes, or their businesses?
What if, during the pandemic, some cities started to dismantle their police force due to these mobs’ demands?
What if you saw statues of our American history being torn down by these mobs of angry individuals during this pandemic?
What if thousands of Americans lost their businesses or lost their jobs because these angry mobs of individuals set fire to those places of business?
What if, during this pandemic, there was news of another looming pandemic on the horizon?
What if, during this pandemic, people would not go to church. Those who attended services were told not to sing at church because they would help spread this virus?
What if during this pandemic, individuals were losing their Constitutional rights because majors, governors, city councils, or sitting congressmen and women would not protect the rights of certain Americans?
What if during a pandemic, you were told things then later down the line, those things changed?
What if you were told not to wear a mask several months later, you were mandated to wear a mask?
What if you were told to stay at home to “flatten the curve” of this pandemic? Then, several months later, you were told to stay at home until a vaccine was found?
What if after positive news came out about a possible vaccine, you were told not to count on the vaccine because it would have no to little impact on the virus?
What if certain government officials didn’t want to get our economy on track to seek vengeance on someone they hated? That vengeance they sought was based on hate so vile that it was on the verge of a sick, deep, and disturbing sickness that affected every part of their life?
What if, during this pandemic, the Constitutional rights of Americans were starting to be depleted?
What if you watched as police officers were told not to engage looters, rioters, and angry mobs during this pandemic?
What if those individuals who were arrested by the police, were then released back onto the streets? As they were released, they were cleared to pay no bail or fines?
What if you saw crime spike and spiral out of control because law enforcement officers were told not to protect innocent Americans?
What if you saw innocent people and children being murdered in the streets of our biggest cities because there was little to no police presence?
What if certain government officials were releasing prisoners back onto the streets where there was little to no police presence during this pandemic? The reasoning given to the American people was, of course, “racism.”
What if during this pandemic, certain groups of people were allowed to cause mayhem, wreak havoc, destroy, burn down, riot, and loot. At the same time, law-abiding citizens were arrested for defending their homes, families, and themselves?
What if our police force was defunded and dismantled. While this happened, we were told something silly like “reimagine” how the police could be utilized or revamped?
What if there were food shortages during this pandemic? What if the demand for food pantries increased exponentially?
What if, during this pandemic, there rose several organizations that were dishonest. They lied about who they are and what they stand for?
What if these organizations managed to fool lots of people about who they wanted to protect, what was important to them, their history, and their intentions?
What if hundreds of Americans and companies poured funds into these organizations, then those organizations, in turn, had those funds funneled into one particular political party?
Everything listed above is not hypothetical. All these events have occurred.
During the last five months, we have endured a lot. We are exhausted, angry, tired, and frustrated.
We have been lied to and mislead. We have been manipulated and used.
We have been used as leverage. We have been used as a vice against one particular person.
These events are a lot to endure. No wonder suicides, illicit drug use, violence, depression are surging. No wonder people are losing hope.
All of this is a plan to destroy America as we know it. To kill our economy and forever silence conservative America, most of which hold a strong belief in God.
If we are exhausted, we won’t fight back. If we are scared out of our minds, we will quickly give up all our God-given Constitutional rights.
If we feel hopeless, we will not pray, not go to church and not call out to God.
If we are afraid to speak up out of fear that we will be labeled a racist, we will not say a word.
If we fear to lose our jobs in this tough economy, we won’t speak up and complain to our Senators, governors, or our President.
Here are some things to remember in these difficult times were are facing. We are more durable than we want to admit. If we give up our rights now, we will never gain them back.
Fear, coercion, lies, manipulation, dishonesty, guilt, shame, hate, racism are NOT things from God.
They are tools used by those who want to control and manipulate us.
The hate these individuals feel is sick and twisted and not from God.
Those that seek to hurt, lie, kill, maim, and destroy other human beings are dealing with some wicked demons.
Somewhere, there is a mastermind of all these wicked plans to destroy America, Its citizens, our Constitutional rights, our futures, and our booming economy.
That person or those people must be exposed.
Again, we turn to the only one who can do that. That, of course, is God.
God is the one who can change a person’s heart. He is the only one who can make someone do something way out of their character.
God knows and sees all. God knows the plots of evil which have set out upon America.
Now is not the time to give up on our prayers. Now is not the time to throw in the towel.
Now is not the time to give up. Now is not the time to stop fighting.
Now is the time to fight harder, pray harder, pray more often, to worship God, even more. Now is the time to pray, fast, and give God to move, expose, and heal our land.
I keep hearing that our hedges of protection have been let down. Now is the time for all our prayer warriors to pray and rebuild those hedges and protection walls.

Let’s pray:
God, we worship You and thank You for Your mercy and grace that never ends. We thank you for your forgiveness that is endless.
We thank You for our home in America. We thank you for this beautiful land and all our freedoms. We thank You for all those who fought and died to defend and preserve our freedoms.
God, forgive us for our sins. Forgive America for Her sins, forgive our leaders, and forgive every citizen who has sinned against You.
God, America is in turmoil right now. God, calm all anger and frustrations in all of our hearts.
God, we call upon Your divine protection for our homes and our families.
God, we call upon Your provision to continue to sustain us during these difficult times.
God, we call on You to heal human hearts that feel then need to destroy things and hurt other people.
God, we ask for healing in our nation. Father, heal every place of racism and bigotry.
God, help us see the division we are causing with our words and actions.
God, restore our unity and faith in one another.
God, expose every ounce of hate and racism in our police forces.
God, expose every person who is purposely seeking to destroy America, Its citizens, our Constitutional rights, our futures, and our booming economy.
God, expose these organizations that have emerged for who and what they are.
God, open our eyes and ears to see and hear the truth according to Your word.
God, expose every plot and ploy to destroy our current President. God, expose all lies and wickedness.
God, what every plot, plans, ploys are in place let them ensnare those who plotted and planned.
Let every fiery dart meant to cause death and destruction return to its sender.
God, expose the pure hate and disdain these individuals have towards our current administration and towards America and Her citizens.
God, let us pray to build up our hedges of protection.
God, let us seek You never like before. Place inside of us new hope and passions to see America strong once again.
God, we thank You and pray in agreement. We pray in the name above all other names, Jesus is that name.
Amen.

 

For those of you who want to ask Jesus to be your personal 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.

During this pandemic, here is a bible verse of encouragement.

shutterstock_ThePowerOfWordsWP2.8.20

7.11.20 This post was written back in March of this year. God brought to attention that perhaps there are people out there looking for places to find the words and correlating scripture for things like protection, healing, breaking fear etc.

When He did that, I decided to repost this. Remember how powerful prayer is. Never doubt its power and never allow anyone to talk you out of prayer because they believe it is useless.

Our prayer is pure power.  It is our communication with our God who is all powerful and holds all power. Our prayer asks Him to intervene in our lives and situations. Remember God’s word in Deuteronomy 31:6.

Never give up on prayers.  If possible, come in agreement with someone about the things you are praying for. Our agreed prayer is power multiplied.

What does God’s name say about Him? Do you know all the names of God?
Here are just a few of them.
Emmanuel – God with us.
https://www.ibelieve.com/faith/10-powerful-names-of-god-and-what-they-mean-for-us-today.html
God’s word is unchangeable, unfaltering, unwavering, and will stand forever(Matt24:35).
God’s word cannot be altered even by Him.
God holds His word above Himself.
What does this mean for us? Well, this says that God’s word will not fail us. His word will come to pass. His word is our weapon to use against the chaos of this world.
As we apply our daily armor of God, His word is referenced as our sword, which is our weapon!
His name is our peace, our healing, our provision, our protection, our restorer, our defender, our victory, etc.
His name is all the things we will ever need during our lifetime.
So how can you benefit from His word and His name right now? Well, that is the perfect question to ask.
If you believe God is God, that He is who He says He is, that His word cannot fail and that His word is a powerful weapon, then you have won half the battle.
Right now, we are facing a deadly disease. Now is the time we need God’s presence, His direction, and His answers for this difficult time.
God is not like us, and He does not do things the way we do. His ideas, His thoughts, His wisdom, His knowledge is above our same traits. This is why He is God.
We think words aren’t a big deal. We say whatever we want whenever we want, never giving a second thought about the impact those spoken words will have.
The words we speak will either cause life or death. Our words will take us on a path of blessings or curses. Whomever we speak words over, we, therefore, have impacted their life in some way, shape, or form.
Negative words spoken by other people over us can be denied or unaccepted by us.
Again, using the utterance of spoken words, we have the right to accept words spoken by someone over us.
Again, using the power of words, we have the right to deny spoken words of death over our lives.
See, words are potent! God used words to create the universe. He spoke the sun, the moon, the starts, the plant, all wildlife, the ocean, etc. into existence with His mere words.
Just like our Father in heaven, our words have power too!
We can speak things into existence, as long as they align with God’s will for our lives, according to God’s word.
If we are sick, we can speak our healing into existence using God’s word (https://www.openbible.info/topics/with_his_stripes_we_are_healed).
If we are addicted, we can break the power of addiction over our lives using God’s word (https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/bible-verses-about-addiction/).
If we are afflicted with depression, we can speak God’s word over our lives or the lives of our loved ones and break depression (https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/depression-bible-verses/).
If we are facing a world pandemic, we can speak God’s word to call for His safety and protection over our family and our loved ones (https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/bible-verses-about-protection/).
If we are facing the loss of a job and the ability to provide a living for our family, we can speak God’s word of blessings and prosperity over our lives (https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/God~s-Provision).
We need to remind God of His word all the time. Not that He forgets His word but to build our faith.
In essence, to tell God, this is who You are, and this is what You said You would do.
Hence the verse faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of Christ (Rom10:17).
We must hear, speak, and proclaim His word, His goodness, and His love for us all the time.
When we utter His living word over our lives at all times, this builds faith and stirs the atmosphere with our expectations.
We sit in anticipation, waiting, and watching for the miracles of God. And they must appear because we are stirring the atmosphere with our spoken utterances and with our worship.
You must know how powerful words are. Our words can bless or curse. They can lift or tear down, or they can build up or destroy.
Please don’t think that you can apply God’s principle of blessing over your life for one day and expect to see miracles the next day.
The process of speaking life, protection, provision is a lifetime daily job.
Now, I know what you are thinking. You probably think that this will be exhausting.
We are so used to instant gratification. The majority of the time, God is NOT an immediate gratification type of God.
He wants you to be in it for the long haul. He wants you to pursue Him diligently with your whole heart.
Now once you see the manifestation of God’s spoken word in your life, this will become like second nature.
At this point, you will continue to go from level to level in your faith, your blessings, and your prosperity.
Some of us will find this a little challenging to speak positive words all the time. Some of us will find it a little difficult to think before we speak.
God will help with this too. If you want to pursue this, you will have to go to God in prayer to ask for His help.
Do not be ashamed or embarrassed to ask God for help. God is not the God of guilt, shame, and embarrassment. He is always the God of caring, love, nurturing, and peace.

Destroying our statues does not erase the past.

Racism

First, does racism exist in America? Yes, I am sad to say that it does.
Is America a mostly a racist country? No, I don’t believe it is.
I believe most Americans are not racists and bigots.
I believe America is a great country where we fight for each other, stand up for what’s right, and defend the defenseless.
I see America as a shining beacon of hope for all the world to see.
Now, have we made mistakes? Of course, we have. No one but Jesus is perfect.
We have made tons of mistakes, but thank God for His grace and mercy!
Thank God for the blood of Jesus that redeems us! Can I get an AMEN for that!
Without that precious blood, we get the exact thing that we deserve. That would be death, and an eternity suffering in hell. God’s word tells us that the wages of our sin is death(Rom6:23)!
Now, America has erected statues and memorials to remind us of our past. This past is both bad and good.
We see those statues, and we know that we don’t want to ever go back to some of those mistakes we made and live them over again.
Why tear them down? Why destroy them? Destroying them does not erase the past and does not make us forget.
Destroying them does not make things right, and it never will right the wrongs America did.
I see those statues as reminders of where America should never go again.
Yes, we made those mistakes, but those mistakes do NOT define America.
Our nation is being torn apart by hate right now.
There is rioting, looting, protesting, burning buildings and American citizens are beaten in our streets.
When are we ever going to sit down and talk? Is it too late for discussions? Have we moved too far into our hate and anger that we can’t even talk to each other?
We have to talk about what is bothering us. We cannot keep ignoring it. Ignoring it is how we got here in the first place.
We can’t just keep telling people that they can never understand what living with racism feels like.
Of course, they will never understand, but discussions will help to make them see things in a different light.
We have to share our experiences. How else can we begin to fix what is wrong?
The shoe fits on other feet too. We will never know the road other people have walked in their lifetime. We can’t judge someone’s life experiences by the color of their skin. That is wrong!
Now, do I know what it is like to experience racism? Yes, I do. I have experienced racism in my lifetime.
It is ugly and hateful, and when it is happening to you, you know without any doubts that it is racism.
Now, by saying that, I have only been in a life-threatening situation driven by racism once. I was petrified!
There have been several other experiences that I knew I was being judged and looked at through the eyes of racism.
Believe me, when you are in the middle of these types of experiences, you know it. Again, no apologies were ever received.
Will I ever get an apology? No, I won’t, but those experiences did not make me see the world as a racist place that is full of hate. Those experiences did not taint my vision of this world.
Now, do I know what it is like to experience racism often? No, I don’t. I don’t think I could take so much hate directed at me all the time.
Is it fair? No, it is not! Racism has no place in our lives.
But remember, racism isn’t just directed at black people. Since racism is a taught trait, there is racism against Caucasians, Hispanics, Asians, etc. It goes on and on.
Somewhere that person that hates was taught to hate by a family member, a friend, a coworker, etc.
We have to stop teaching our children to hate! As parents, we will all have to answer to God for what we taught or did not teach our children. Did we teach them to love or hate? Did we teach them about God? We were supposed to teach them about God.
If we did teach them to hate, we are responsible for what they did with that knowledge when we stand in front of God to be judged.
Now acknowledging there are hate and racism in the world is not an excuse to hurt people, burn things, loot, and riot. And experiencing racism for yourself isn’t an excuse to do those things either.
Should we peacefully protest for things to change? Of course, we should. We should demand change. We should also require modification for all the injustices against people of color.
Failing schools, poverty, lack of jobs, low-paying jobs, and school choice are worth protesting for. We have to demand change peacefully. We also have to acknowledge and fix broken families. We have to realize that households with no fathers present are factors that negatively affect our children.
Now is it impossible to raise a child without a father’s present? No, it is not impossible. I have seen it done. But, this requires a strict single parent that will not tolerate excuses. This single parent will have to be involved in every area of their child’s life. It is a tremendous, difficult, sometime thank-less job, but it can be done and is extremely rewarding when all is said and done.
Now, acknowledging racism in our communities does not excuse us to fail in life.
We all have a divine destiny to fulfill for God. Once you know that and see that God is on your side, accomplishing that destiny is possible for nothing is impossible with God(Matt19:26).
A lot of us make excuses for not getting things done. We blame others for stopping us and for our failures. Excuses are lies we tell ourselves to appease our guilt and shortcomings.
When you know your destiny, no man, no hater, and no demon can stop you. Will it be an easy road? No, God does not do easy. We have to fight and scratch to get there. There are things God wants to show and teach us along the way.
Also, the enemy will oppose us. The last thing he wants is for us to step into our divine destiny.
So, in conclusion, we have to talk to each other, peacefully protest, demand change from our school board, our local leaders, our governors, our government, and our President.
We have to get involved! We cannot let the other voices speak up for us. We cannot make excuses anymore that we are too busy. We have to get involved. America, and other nations, we are teetering on the brink of collapse in our society. Now is the time and place to demand that changes are made. One voice does matter and can change things.
Most of all, we need to reestablish our prayer lives. We need more deep and fervent prayer(James5:16), fasting, and plated seeds. We need to rebuild the hedges of protection again.
The same is also true for other countries. God is the answer. Prayer works! Never doubt or give up on prayer. We need more prayer now. We need God’s hand involved in what is happening in our world. The hedges for all counties need to be rebuilt.
Don’t give up on God and America. America’s best days are ahead of Her. By the blood of Jesus, I decree and declare this to be so. Amen.
