something to think about

Worldly Wordy Chatter part 1

wordly wordy chatter

words gone wrong

what’s the matter?

prince of the air

got your tongue?

he’s having a heyday

having fun..

using your mouth

for evil

 to incite strife

nothing good and nothing right..

Prince of Peace

sadly looks on

where did the children

of God go wrong?

no longer discerning

between darkness and light

only puffed up

and following the crowd..

who think being louder

is ok

to prove their point

in what really is unsound..

Which way?

And you He made alive, who were dead in trepasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience. among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature the children of wrath, just as the others. But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us. Even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved). and raised us up together and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. That in ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.

                                                                                                           Ephesians 2: 1-8

As a child of God we are in the world but not of it. That means we are different. To be different. Not mean. not contentious, not vulgar, nor crude. We don’t follow the crowd of disobedience but on the path of right standing..

The Hiding Place

20160423_152620

My feather’s were ruffled this morning when I heard about a young woman,that got beat up, while riding a train in Chicago..My heart broke for her as she described the experience and expressed her disappointment that no one came to her rescue. The month of April is recognized as Child Abuse Prevention month. Each time  I scan the land of internet, I read about atrocities committed against young children. There is a song that says, you are my hiding place, you always fill my heart with songs of deliverance, whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you. We all need a hiding place. A place of safety, a place of peace, a place to be still and refuel. My sister told me the other day, that I can’t save the world, and I know that, but I know the one that knows the number of hairs  on our heads . Almighty God cares about every single human being on earth.He sees the tears that stream down the faces of each child, teen and adult.He sees…He hears the cry of our hearts, He hears the pain…There is nothing unnoticed.

He gives, He loves, He cares for you..As the world turns, it would be very easy to lose faith in mankind, but deep in my heart I know that there are good Samaritan’s on planet earth. Maybe they are far and few apart, but there are unsung heroes, that we never hear about…Where is your hiding place?

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most high, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Psalm 91:1

spiritual warfare

Bummer

This morning I had a visit from the code enforcement lady, and she informed us that someone, a neighbor emailed a complaint about our bees.. This is totally upsetting as they have become dear to us. We live in our little house with our four cats, that have been spayed, we have beautified our front and backyard.. I take pictures and we don’t bother anyone, so I would like think. Apparently there is something about us that is bugging someone….So, how can this be? Who is out to get us for being people who care about maintaining our home and making it look pleasing to the eye.

As disturbing as it is, I understand that there are forces of darkness that thrive on taking out peaceful people, people who are trying to make a difference in some manner. People just wanting to live life, honoring God, respecting the land, people and animals.

DSC_0014Ok, I’m busted!

DSCN7924We just need more catnip..we’ll be fine

Hmm.. yes, it’s  perplexing…human nature.. to want to kill, steal and destroy. I know it’s a spiritual battle and I know who wins, I know the outcome. And I  know that greater is He that is in me, than he…that rotten devil, that is in this world. And yes, he is a loser…
