“Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist.” ~ Top Leader of a YUGE Rome-based organization

When their biz is supposed to be with Good News but it ain't then run, don't just walk to the exit door. Yeah, ditch when they're sayin' it's true but it's 100% fake news in-place of the Good News.

Comanche Indian wisdom declares, “When you discover that you’ve been riding on a very stationary (dead) horse, the best strategy is to dismount and then not go find another unhealthy or stationary decaying beast to mount up on.”

In business, in churches or denominations, in government and (sometimes) in education oftentimes strategies can be tried in vain with dead horses… including the following:
  • 1. Buying a stronger whip.
  • 2. Changing lead rider.  It’s good to first inspect the whole horse.
  • 3. Saying things like, “This is the way we have always ridden dead horses.”
  • 4. Appointing a committee to study the horse as maggots arrive.
  • 5. Arranging to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses.
  • 6. Increasing the standards to ride dead horses.
  • 7. Appointing a tiger team to revive the dead horse.
  • 8. Creating a training session to increase our riding ability.
  • 9. Comparing the state of dead horses in today’s environment vs. in history.
  • 10. Changing the requirements, declaring, “This horse is not actually dead.”
  • 11. Hiring contractors to ride the dead horse.
  • 12. Harnessing several dead horses together for increased speed.
  • 13. Declaring that “No horse is too dead to ride.”
  • 14. Providing additional funding to increase the horse’s performance.
  • 15. Funding a study to see if contractors can ride it cheaper.
  • 16. Purchasing a product to make dead horses run faster.
  • 17. Declaring the horse is “better, faster and cheaper dead.”
  • 18. Forming a quality circle to find uses for dead horses.
  • 19. Reviewing the performance requirements for horses.
  • 20. Saying this horse was procured with cost as an independent variable.
  • 21. “Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position.(My personal favorite!)

I just like the bright sunny days.. much better than other kind of days.

How about you? What's your day like?

When your world grows dark or real max-dark ..and it might do that at times… Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow Me, you won’t have to walk in darkness.”

Be encouraged friends.. yeah, regardless of what’s goin’ on outside or inside your tent so to speak. The Lord is there. He rad-loves you more than words can describe -- He closely watches over you, believer, and He’s the Answer no matter the question, the struggle, or the fierce trial. Loves you so much He can’t take His eyes off of you. It’s true! There for ya. 
Christ suffers with you if you are suffering. Can do a lot when we simply believe, but He feels what You feel right now. He didn't cause any of that negative fallout we see.. you know, from Adam's fall upon this now sin-cursed planet. He gave us all a free-will, a really good thing to do. And He understands you 100% ...what you're going through today. He'll hold your hand..tight and He totally knows your current struggles, pains, your hardships, your frustrating losses, li'l and apex-fears, your frustrations and shall I say mental anguish at times.

It's a bit too early to quit now. Fight on.. with that good fight of faith.

Jesus weeps with you when life goes lame, but He totally delights in you too. You don't have to remain in control of it all really -- perhaps you've tried to work diligently and do that at times. Just pause, pour out your heart to Him. Reach up, get candid, very real with Him when you need to. He gets it.. even hears all those unspoken requests from you. Duh--they WAY important to Him cuz you are to Him! He can indeed handle any brutal honesty from you on any day of the week. Just find some comfort in His strong arms and rest in His presence today! Sure, you're called "Beloved" cuz you indeed are.. rad-loved. (Should worry, but have a bit today. Am prayin' for my brother Kyle and his family today)

"For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 'Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you." ~ God
