Sometimes We Feel Like . . .

Circling the Wagons!

There are so many things going on around us these days. Our values, our way of life, our morals--which we try to base on Biblical standards --are under attack. Our Nation just elected a President representing a party which 3 times rejected God in their platform. The unborn appear to be in  more peril than ever. The family as God designed it seems to be moving closer and closer to extinction. 
No, it isn't about the economy.
What do we do?
Pray for forgiveness of our sins. Pray that we please Him with our lives and values.
Circle the wagons for a little while--continue teaching your children what is right and what is not. 
LIVE Deuteronomy 6! 
Eschew the world and its values. Scripture tells us not to be conformed to it. We have to live in it, but we don't have to be like it, Praise God. 
When we come out of the wagons, they will still be shooting at us, but "take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day . . ."

"Have faith in God.
He's on His Throne.
Have Faith in God.
He watches o'er His own."

And a special note to my friend BRM; Let's turn off the news and open our hymnbooks! I'd rather spend my night with Fanny Crosby than Bill O'Reilly any night!


  1. No news for me tonight.

    As I was driving home from work I wondered what is it going to take? How many natural disasters? How many terror attacks? How many have to be murdered? What is it going to take for America to get on her knees.and turn to God? I once heard a deacon at church say in his wise 80 something year old voice "People used to run to God in times of war and trouble..pews would fill up...folks were saved. Now folks think they don't need God or saving."

    When those great men signed their name across that great document giving birth to this this what they wanted? When those who really marched for the right reasons...was this their plan?

    Do we fully appreciate how good God is? How blessed we are? I'm so thankful for mercies anew each morning, thankful for The Cross, and so thankful for an empty tomb.

  2. Thank you for your comments. I have heard the Books of Isaiah and Jeremiah come up many times recently in Bible Study and conversation. I wonder if the time for "adjustment" is over, and men have made their choices. These are scary times for sure--but our fear should be for those who have rejected Christ.
