An Apology, Sir

Abba, I can’t fix this. Why do people — no. Wrong question. I am sorry this fallen humanity of which I am, is so evil. Thank You LORD that You have shown us so much grace and mercy.  I ask for more; not because we deserve it but because we are lost without You.  Forgive us for our unbelief, our willful blindness and our hell-bent propensity to separate ourselves from right and cling to evil. I am so sad that we live like we can keep You locked up in one little closet of our lives; say we are believers, say we are Christians and yet we refuse to allow Your Word to change us. We refuse to let You into all our living. We proclaim we know You and yet our wants have not changed since we said we met You. We are still the same people; still do what we have always done, still talk and walk like before. We are lying and have deceived ourselves, haven’t we? (Titus 3)
I am weary of the boxes we think we can put You in. I am weary of us assigning You to the four walls of a building with various labels denoting worship.  I am weary of You and Your Word legislated out of our places of academia,  halls of law, military, commerce – just the whole of it.  I am sorry, Abba. We act like You are deaf, blind and dumb. Like You don’t have sense enough to maintain our lives, and certainly not a country, and we depraved humans know just what to do.  It’s so stupid to me. Help me not be a part of this mass suicide of sound reason. I pray for a hunger for Your Word that surpasses any hunger I have even known. And I pray to grow to be like Paul and Silas, Peter, James and John; that I will refuse to shut up about You anywhere and everywhere that You open my mouth or pen. This sick world wounds my soul – thank You for Your healing balm – Your Word and Your Spirit that comforts me, challenges me and day by day as I submit to You will grow me up into a woman who does some good. 


James 2: 19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?  source 



Today’s Headline

Psalm 12  (CSB)

Help, Lord, for no faithful one remains;
the loyal have disappeared from the human race.
They lie to one another;
they speak with flattering lips and deceptive hearts.
May the Lord cut off all flattering lips
and the tongue that speaks boastfully.
They say, “Through our tongues we have power;
our lips are our own—who can be our master?”

“Because of the devastation of the needy and the groaning of the poor, I will now rise up,” says the Lord. “I will provide safety for the one who longs for it.”

The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times.

You, Lord, will guard us; you will protect us from this generation forever. The wicked prowl all around, and what is worthless is exalted by the human race. source

As I said. Today’s headline.  But there is Good News! The LORD has come!
For the One who longs for Him.  Whoever that One is. However many Ones. He has come. 


Few Words

When we are in our right minds, we put some clothes on. 

Mark 5:15 Now they came to Yeshua and saw the madman who had had the legion. He was sitting there, dressed in clothes and in his right mind. The people were scared. source

And when we start talking about modesty and being clothed in the righteousness of Jesus, people get scared.

Riding Again

What’s most frustrating about prayer to you? 

Some of these thought trains I ride wouldn’t reveal so much if I kept the ride to myself but, alas, I often don’t. 😊

Like this morning’s. The most frustrating for me is no, not the waiting so much, unless the waiting is ascribed to waiting for the people I am praying for to actually cooperate with GOD so He can give them a happier life. 

It frustrates me and if I am not really careful will tick me off at them for being so  — well, something. . .  like stubborn to  keep on doing what does not work and getting the same hurtful results year after year. 

I’ll just be blunt sin makes us stupid and unhappy! 

1 Timothy 1:15 (NKJV) 15 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.  source
