168 remembered

23 years ago, 2 days before my son Chase’s first Birthday, the unthinkable happened. 168 lives were lost, many of those being children, because someone had hate for their own country. As a new father, I couldn’t imagine innocent children dying because of a selfish coward. 168 will never be forgotten.

John 16:33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.

Psalm 34:18 The Lord is near to the broken-hearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

Have a peace filled week my friends!!!

It took me a long time to figure out, but I’ve learned I can’t do life alone or in my own way. I have to go to God every day for guidance. I have to listen & do life His way. I’d be completely lost & a huge mess if not for Him. Doing things my way led to depression. It made me want to hide from the world & want to stop living. I am thankful that my Father in Heaven was looking out for me. Go to God for everything!

Psalm 34:17-18 When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears & delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the broken-hearted & saves the crushed in spirit.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends!!!

Trend Update: Evil In Our Time, Paris, November 2015

Ephesians 5:16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil.

The phrase “making the most” is an interesting translation. It is the Greek word exagorazo. Per Strong’s Concordance it means: to redeem; by payment of a price to recover from the power of another; to ransom; buy off.

Someone has purchased these days for us. See Jesus on the cross. Revelation 5:9b for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. See also 1 Corinthians 6:20, Colossians 1:14, Acts 20:28, Ephesians 1:7.

The days of our lives are precious and not to be wasted. Treasure these days and utilize them for good… because the days are evil.

Psalms 34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.

Another translation is Evil people shall self-destruct. Is this ever true. They will be punished. There are not 72 virgins.

Psalms 34:14 Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

… seek peace and pursue it. In the original Hebrew “seek” and “pursue” are not passive. The action is to be intensive and intentional. “Seek” or require, desire, exact, request, demand are the concepts. “Pursue” or put to flight, chase, dog, attend closely upon, persecute, harass, to follow after, and aim to secure are the ideas (Strong’s Concordance).

Evil needs to be confronted.

Galatians 1:4-5 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father…

Yes, evil exists in our time (November 2015). There are plenty of examples on display in our world. We can expect there will be more evil.

Take comfort, evil will not stand forever.

Revelation 21:4-5 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”

And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”
