Vainglory and Strife

IMG_9087

I was sitting, looking at the lovely reflection in my living room mirror.  For an instant I saw beauty, peace, comfort and yet . . .  In just a short time my thoughts changed to something that has bothered me for a long time.  The chaos, deceit, and hate I see happening here in America in Washington D. C.

I Timothy 2:1-3 “I exhort therefore that first of all, supplications, prayers, and intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men.  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.  For this is good an acceptable in the sight of God our savior.”

It truly is hard to pray for those in authority in this country.  They are like unruly, squabbling children.  In my heart I do not see them turning into responsible adults.

Ecclesiastes 10:16 “Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and thy princes eat in the morning!”

Ecclesiastes 10:12 “The words of a wise man’s mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.”

I find myself depressed and full of hopelessness; due to the childish behavior of the democrats and the republicans. I see them all acting like 5 year old children.Each of them is trying to get a piece of the pie, but there is not enough pie to go around. My wise Mother, who is with the Lord now, would have laughed at that statement and agreed with me. I truly believe our new president needs to learn to control the words that come out of his mouth.  He needs to cease the childish statements on Twitter.  A wise man thinks and is silent, but a fool spews foolishness from his mouth.

Philippians 2:3 “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.”

I will leave you with another bit of the wisdom of King Solomon.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”

May God bless America and instill upon the foolish men of this country – Wisdom.

Let’s Become Better People

img_7733

I wish I were a great literary writer.  A person who could sway men from hate; with words of compassion and love.  The events surrounding the recent U.S. Presidential Election have grieved my soul.  There has been enough malicious hate and hostility over this election.

Mankind needs to sit quietly, read God’s word, and ask themselves how God would deal with a situation like this.  Love one another.  Love is the fatherly concern of God for humankind.  Romans 12:21 – Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

No matter how a person paraphrases their message of love – Evil people turn a deaf ear. It seems impossible to sway the hateful from their course.  Yet, we must let our light shine for good in this world.

I am tired of hate, destructive demonstrations, and cruel words.  God is the ruler of this universe and he shall prevail against the workers of iniquity.

At least give the new U.S. President – Donald J. Trump – a chance.  Everyone deserves a chance to prove themselves.  Did you ever think that God might have a reason for the outcome of this election?

Just as you till the soil in your garden each Spring – a renewing of the earth – let’s have a renewing of Faith in our God.

What Matters – Love

img_0681

I sat and watched the news on television this morning.  A sadness engulfed my heart.  The riots, vandalism, and hatred done by protesters is absolutely terrible.  As adults – these people are setting horrible examples for our children.  Yes, this hatred is spilling over into our schools and hurting our children.  When  I ventured on the internet this morning I saw that same hatred on Face book.

The Bible tells us – God is love.  Since the Bible also says we are made in God’s image – We should be filled with Love.  I know God is looking down on this world and he is very displeased with the hatred of mankind.  God tells us to love our neighbor.  The hate in this world must stop.  Hate destroys the good in this world and in our lives.

It does not matter how much you dislike the fact that Donald Trump will become our 45th president – He was elected and he will be our next president.  No, I did not vote for Trump or Hillary Clinton.  I will not degrade either of these people and cause more hate in this world or let hate enter my heart and mind.  I will pray for God to help America become a better nation.  Before I condemn him – I choose to give Donald Trump a chance to lead this county.  Put your hate aside and unite America.  May God Bless America. ♥

Midnight Dream

img_4255

I have been having a lot of dreams lately.  I forget most of my dreams shortly after I wake up.  Since most of my dreams seem stupid (and I remember they are) I am glad I forget them.  I had a dream a few nights ago and I remembered this dream, because it upset me very much.

DREAM:  There was a somewhat elderly lady (in her 60s).  She was very disagreeable and very mean.  She lied throughout my entire dream.  She constantly did evil acts to everyone during this very long dream.  She followed me everywhere I ventured in the dream.  She accused me of being the person performing all of the despicable acts that were transpiring; although she was the perpetrator of these awful acts.  Others were believing her lies about me.  She was very convincing.  I constantly tied to tell everyone that she was the person who was stealing and lying.  No one would believe what I was saying about this woman.  I kept remembering she stole a set of dishes from someone.  She said, that I stole these dishes; a place setting for 7.  Who ever heard of an uneven set of dishes.  Dishes are always sold in even sets of 4, 6, 8, etc.  I decided I needed to leave and get away from this woman; before I was arrested for theft.  I woke up and was very relieved it was only a dream.

Who was this dishonorable lady you ask?  Why, it was Democrat Hillary Clinton.  Yes, I knew who she was through my entire dream.  I was surprised I could remember this dream so vividly.

I realized the explanation for this dream.  The upcoming U. S. Presidential Election in November.  I dislike the 2 presidential candidates: Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump.  I will not vote for either of these candidates and I do not wish either to win.  I do not want anyone to blame me for voting for either of these unsavory people.  They have both done many appalling things in the past and will probably do the same in the future.  I hope I do not follow this dream about Hillary Clinton, with a nightmare about Donald Trump.  These 2 unscrupulous candidates are an embarrassment to the American people.

I have chosen to either vote for the Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson or write in the name Ben Carson (a Republican who was eliminated early in the race for a presidential nominee).  Ben Carson was doing well with his campaign, until Hillary Clinton sabotaged his campaign.

 

Vote?

I took a ride to the lake the other day.  To relax and think about the political scene in America.  I have tried everything to decide, who to vote for in this upcoming U.S. presidential election in November.  Trump needs a piece of tape over his mouth.  If he becomes president we will surely be headed for World War III;  after he insults some world leader from another country.  Hillary Clinton has secrets that are horrible.  I have read many stories of the things her and hubby Bill have been doing for decades.  Not nice. So, I have chosen NOT TO VOTE FOR EITHER OF THESE CANDIDATES.  I am going to choose to vote for JOHNSON from the Libertarian party.  Of course he will not win. They never put much on the news about the Libertarian or Green parties. But, no one is going to say I contributed to the chaos of voting for Clinton or Trump.  Neither of these two are worthy of the office of President!
