Waiting–For God’s Intervention!

Waiting–For God’s Intervention!

Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith. But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you. And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ. 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5

Waiting to exhale–hoping every breath will not be our last–since the crazy just won’t stop!

Since God is not speaking to 45’s heart or if He is–45 is not listening, we can pray for those in Congress to hear God and obey and grow a pair.

So many adjectives–none with a positive connotation–were used in describing the press conference reporters were subjected to yesterday. “Unhinged, crazy, bizarre, off meds” are just a few terms used to describe the maniacal, dishonest comments made by 45.

He didn’t inherit a mess–country is in better shape than it was 8 years ago.

He didn’t win more electoral votes than anyone since Reagan–Obama won with 365 to his 304 (he said 306), and Bush with 425. Apparently his math skills are no better than his reading comprehension skills.

The White House is not running like a fine-tuned machine and we hear about all the chaos on a daily basis–if a person knows where to tune in–that is.

Every time he opens his mouth–insecurities are shown–he has to keep talking about the election win because he knows it was rigged in his favor and he’s fearful evidence will soon be produced. He’s getting ready to campaign for 2020 so he can keep the campaign funds raised for 2016. So much for his feigned riches–he garners by unethical use of other’s money.

His obvious lack of knowledge is continually demonstrated regarding other groups of people, and how he conceives what we know–so blatantly fascist–like he knows best for everyone, when he doesn’t know what’s best for him. We know fake when we see it and hear it–and nothing 45 says is true; it’s his alterative truth–lacking facts.

So, yes, I’m praying for Congress to get it gear and realize they work for Americans, not the president. Americans voted for them and Americans can vote them out! This country has been subjected to the greatest humiliation and embarrassment by a given leader since Bush. World leaders and their people are laughing themselves silly at him and us by proxy!

This is not funny--lives are at stake–all of our lives since he doesn’t think we understand the devastation of a nuclear war. I’d rather not find out and with all of the crazy he’s demonstrated, it’s possible that he’ll start a nuclear war because he’s so petulant and obnoxious, he’ll bully others into reacting rather than ignoring him. And since our republican congress members are reluctant to intervene (when they should), we simply need to ask for God’s intervention–stop the crazy.

Lord,

We’re waiting for You to intervene on behalf of those who love You and obey. We thank You for loving us enough to bring the insanity to an end and that right quickly. We thank You for exposing truth across Congressional members–and whoever is guilty of wrong-doing, bring it to the forefront so we can re-elect those who will care more about the country, than a political party’s agenda. We thank You for keeping us from the evil one and the evil residing in the White House and from those who promoted the evil–the pseudo-christians. Lord, shut the mouths of the liars and seal them with a hot sword–and bring repentance and peace to the land.  In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen!

Facing Reality!

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6).

Sometimes, we miss the simple truth of this verse of scripture. Parents must train children to deal with the realities of life and not just allow them to think they will have everything they want; unless, of course, the parents have absolutely everything they want and obtained it through legal and moral means.

This a good article and unfortunately, not the first time it has been brought to the forefront. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/Mickey-goodman/are-we-raising-a-generati_b_1249706.html If parents are not allowing their children to take responsibility for their actions, when will they learn–When they are sitting behind bars serving time or lying in a morgue? Hard work, integrity, and having morals have never harmed anyone. Allowing children to think that these attributes are not important, has harmed many.

The bottom line for me is very simple. Parents have to learn to parent before they can raise responsible children. Giving a child everything they want (not need) is not good parenting. If they “earn” rewards, give it to them. If they don’t, don’t give in to their demands. Who is a child anyway that they can “demand” anything? Are they paying for the roof over their heads and all the bills that sustain them? Who gave birth to whom? I have never understood parents who allow children to “run their houses” and then cower in fear of them.

Some may think that I’m a horrible parent when I  say that no child lives in my house who cannot abide by my rules (I have put children out of my house). I make the rules, not them. If they can’t handle it, they must leave and some have left. Children don’t learn by osmosis; they must be taught–everything. They must be taught about personal hygiene, organizational skills, the importance of good grades, respect for others and their property, self-respect (and so much more) and knowing how to think–about the consequences for the actions–the good and the bad.

Many parents cannot teach their children to think because they never learned to think first before doing anything. When I look at a number of teenage mothers, inevitably we discover their mother was also a teenage mother and so was the great-grandmother. One would think (at least, I would think) that someone would have figured out that being a teenage mother, with no education or job skills, would discourage others from following in their footsteps; that would make sense to me. Encouraging stupidity has never made sense to me and it is stupid to keep having children when you know you cannot take care of them, but keep expecting a state welfare system to do it for you.

The pattern I see–people dropped the ball in training the children in what they should do to become productive, respectable citizens. If they were not trained, they nothing to hold onto when they become older.

Please stop and think before it’s too late–train the children in behaviors that are responsible, legal and moral and pray their training sustains them throughout life.
