Just a passing thought, that I seem to be dwelling on a lot lately:
The religious freedom that we now enjoy, is a phenomenon that has not been extended to very many generations of Christians. Infact in many many places around the world the ability to worship a risen savior is privedge that many still can't enjoy.

Daniel was thrown in the lions den for standing firm in his beliefs. Come to find out, it wasn't the lions den. It was Gods den.


Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown in a furnace for refusing to worship a "false" god. Come to find out that 4 men braved the flames the day.

I wish in a time, when we are free to worship, that more people would worship.

The unchurched cry for help, with their hopeless statements. Faith in themselves, faith in their abilities, faith in their money. Misplaced faith is pulling many of down.

Kinda gloom, and doom, and not very inspiring. It's just been on my mind for a couple of weeks now. Thought I would share.

Thought you might enjoy this prayer given in Kansas at the opening session of their Senate

Heavenly Father,

We come before You today to ask Your Forgiveness and seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, ''Woe to those who call evil good,'' but that's exactly what we have done. We have lost our Spiritual equilibrium and inverted our values. We confess that; we have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it pluralism; We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism; We have endorsed perversion and called it an alternative lifestyle; We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery; We have neglected the needy and called it self preservation; We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare; We have killed our unborn and called it choice; We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable; We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem; We have abused power and called it political savvy; We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition; We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression; We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, O God, and know our hearts today; try us and see if there be some wicked way in us; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent here by the people of this state and who have been ordained by You, to govern this great state of Kansas. Grant them your wisdom to rule and may their decisions direct us to the center of Your Will.

I ask in in the name of your Son, The Living Savior, Jesus Christ

Don't ever give up, ever give in, ever stop trying, ever sell out. If you get knocked down, pick yourself up, brush yourself off and start where you left off. But never, ever, ever give up

I wish I hadn't brought things down. I've had to remind myself a little lately, that if you read the bible to the end, you find a solemn truth. Jesus wins.

Ephesians 3:17-19

Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

A little snippet from our church newsletter last week : If "material things" are what you are talking about when you say "you are blessed" you have no idea what a blessing is!
