May God bless our new President
May God bless our new President
O come, let us sing unto the Lord:
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving,
and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the deep places of the earth:
the strength of the hills is his also.
The sea is his, and he made it:
and his hands formed the dry land.
O come, let us worship and bow down:
let us kneel before the Lord our maker.
For he is our God;
and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
Last night I stayed up into the early morning hours in amazement at what was transpiring with the election of Donald Trump for the office of POTUS. Full disclosure here: I didn't vote for Mr. Trump though he was clearly the better choice of the two, and I'm pleasantly surprised that he won. Please don't misunderstand - I did NOT vote for that criminal, heathen Hillary. I CAN not, HAVE not & WILL not ever vote for a Democrat for dog catcher, much less POTUS as I simply can't cast my vote for a democrat because of the social platform upon which they stand - regardless of what they 'personally' feel on abortion, sodomite rights, etc... The company you keep matters... we are not to be unequally yoked in any relationship (2Cor. 6:14), and a platform that is for the murder of babies & for the right for sodomites to marry is ANTI-Bible & ultimately ANTI-Christ! <read more>
The Bible says in Daniel 2:21 that '...he changeth the times and the seasons:
he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:'
It doesn't take a highly educated Christian scholar to see that just the choice put before the American people this election year is the beginning of the Judgment of a Righteous God against this once great nation. And given the sins & spiritual state of this country, it's rightly deserved.
Amid the glory & honor that was bestowed upon this man upon his death, I decided it was imperative to remind those who would listen to what Paul Harvey would call 'the rest of the story'...
Much can be said about the verdicts that came down from the high court on Wednesday. One could start with the irony of Justice Kennedy’s remark about DOMA infringing on states’ rights, when the high court has never had any problem infringing upon the individual rights of states assured to our founders by the 10th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. For instance, did not the decision made by the high court legalizing the murder of the unborn in Roe v. Wade infringe upon Texas state law which determined that the willful termination of pregnancy illegal with the exception of rape or incest? Speaking of Texas,
in Lawrence v. Texas the court with their decision not only struck down the sodomy law in that state, but thirteen other states as well. If this weren’t contradictory enough, with another ruling released yesterday the court upheld the famously liberal ninth circuit court’s ruling invalidating proposition eight, which was a constitutional amendment voted on – and passed by popular vote in the state of California deeming that marriage is defined solely between one man and one woman. <read more>
I’m not a Starbuck’s kind of guy. The only thing I am particular about when it comes to coffee is that I’m not particular about my coffee. I’d just as soon as have the $1.09 convenience store variety as the mocha-frappe-latte mess they’re somehow are able to charge $5 for. I’ve grown accustomed to non-decaf, scalding hot black coffee – no cream, no sugar, no ice – shaved or otherwise, no French vanilla NOTHING. <read more>
I was driving through town yesterday when I was fortunate to have one of those convenient moments that we all enjoy… Just before I was about to lift my foot of the accelerator and apply the brake as I approached a stoplight, it changed from ‘red’ to ‘green’. (I’m a little strange in that it’s simple pleasures such as this that just make my day). As I passed through the light I looked at the cars coming from both direction of the cross traffic at the intersection and noted how they had to stop so that I could continue uninhibited – I felt like that guy... <read more>
Psalms 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
Wow! What a wonderful verse concerning self-examination.
So many people can gaze at the faults and flaws of others with an air of superiority without ever taking a moment to examine their own hearts, thoughts, deeds and words… And when they do examine themselves, they judge their words and actions based... <read more>
First, I want to say that my heart goes out to all those affected by the shooting at Sandy Creek Elem. School - especially those parents who have lost a child... I shutter to think of what they must be experiencing at this moment, and they will be in my prayers.
After reading the many stories relating to the tragedy on various news websites today, I want to offer some a perspective that is not being reported... <read more>

Something that never ceases to amaze me is the arrogance of man. I've never met anyone who deep down in their heart does not expect to have tomorrow there waiting on them. Now the thing is, if you say to someone "you don't know if you'll have tomorrow, you may die today" they will say, "yeah, you're right - we never know when we're going to go"... but deep down in their heart they expect tomorrow - young or old, rich or poor, sick or healthy - IT MATTERS NOT! (say Amen, because you're just as guilty as everyone else!) <read more>
There's a man in our fellowship that raises chickens. Much to my excitement, and due to the abundance of eggs that they generate, I am presented with a dozen eggs completely free of charge just about every week. (This is truly a blessing to me, because I like eggs, and my wife likes to cook). In addition to that, with inflation being the way it is, added up it saves me a lot of money! <read more>
I spoke to someone recently who through various trials and changes in their life, had begun to question their self-worth. I have wondered myself in times past what value my life is, or what good am I to my family, my friends and society in general. I mean, I know what I've done and I know how I've failed and fallen short of the Glory of God - much better than anybody else. I think many people struggle with this question from time to time - and this post is directed specifically toward them today. <read more>
