I pray that God would have mercy on the people, and bless this country I live in. I've been deplorable here some but am not alone.
“For justice will prevail, and all the morally upright will be vindicated.” Psalm 94:15
To many, God’s people seem deplorable to those of this lost world, but that doesn’t mean we need to act deplorable as some kind of bad witnesses. Who are the so called “peculiar people” in 1 Peter 2:9? Jews? Gentiles? From the text they are those who believe in Jesus Christ.
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light..” 1 Pet 2:9 (KJV).
“Those who are perishing, we are a dreadful smell of death and doom. But to those who are being saved, we are a life-giving perfume. And who is adequate for such a task as this?” 2 Cor. 2:16 knowGod.org

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." Psalm 19:1
"Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth." Psalm 57:5
"O Lord our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!" Psalm 8:9
Help me live in such a way on this earth that I clearly reflect Your strong grace, beautiful majesty, kind and tender compassion–yea, reflect who You really are Lord.
It's cuz if You don't with grace flow through me, and I somehow fail to let you.. MAN, I could SO quickly mess up my witness here. People need Jesus so please empower.
Failed You before ..I have.. with such unplanned, independent, vain efforts. Don't want to again.
It's so imperative to worship biblically and from the heart. And this is a testimony even to unbelievers who sometimes it to watch and listen.
That road labeled ‘perhaps one day’ leads on toward a village of real smallness called 'prob'ly ain't gunna happen at all’. KnowGod.org
Do you long work your beads, a wailing prayer-wall.. do you "say your prayers" or do you actually get through with God the way you were always meant to break through? Shouldn't be a hard thing--gettin' your communication through and hearin' clear for direction.
Tears, crocodile tears even.. we shed em at times.. but they alone aren't the reason for answers comin' down to us.
And God doesn't necessarily move in your life when you just struggle though He can empathize and does deeply care about you. Sure He does. Listen, He answers and moves when you pray believing. : )
Hey, I didn't write the rules.
Jesus told us in the Bible that His real sheep hear His voice and follow Him. We are called to obey Him first and foremost.

Most pregnant women tend not to know the exact day, but get ready just the same. As this world more quickly spins out of kilter with each passing day, it simply means that the coming of the Lord is very soon.
As the people of the world, of it's Media, of the U.N., of State Churches, of Social Networks, of Governments, and of the airwaves go after "the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience" (see context of Eph. 2:2), we will fix our eyes on Jesus.
As they keep doin' their thing while falsely assuring everyone "All is okay. Move along now, nothing to see here", we will with a sense of urgency opt to be about the Task (you remember Christ's Great Commandment and Great Commission Matt. 28:16-20..) our Lord has given us.
"Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While PEOPLE ARE SAYING, "PEACE AND SAFETY," destruction will come on them SUDDENLY, as LABOR PAINS on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape." 1 Thessalonians 5: 1-3 #emph.mine #Fish4Peeps

"Every single day we are either sowing to the flesh or we are sowing to the Spirit." ~ Erwin W. Lutzer
Heaven is for you and your friends. Feed your faith not your doubts. Help others too. Heard an old song today sayin' "We hear so much from so many that we don’t really know much at all. ‘Everyone talkin’ 'bout heaven ain’t a goin’ there."
You were born with gifts to use.. for God's glory, for others too. If you don’t feel comfortable with the idea that you have gobs of potential inside, soul-winnning and edifying sorta potential.. you just need to pray n start gettin’ comfortable with it. Cuz how else will reach it, Buttercup?
