I’m tired. I need to be renewed.  My strength is waning.  The world is making me faint.  I feel I can’t take another step. Then I realize that I can’t take a single step forward until I acknowledge that I am a sinner.  I could stand in judgment of all the ugliness occurring in the world today, but I’m just as guilty for the state that it’s in as anyone else.

We’ve all sinned.  We’ve fallen short of God’s expectations.  We shouldn’t be surprised by the events of the last week.  We shouldn’t sit back and say the world as we know it is doomed to the same destruction that befell Sodom and Gomorrah.  As with every generation from the beginning, we have all been marked with the darkness of sin.  It’s part of our DNA.

Sin is sin, no matter how great or small.  If it weren’t for the grace of God, each inhabitant of this earth would be facing an eternity in hell.  There is not one thing we can do to change that.  God is the only one who changes hearts.  He alone is the master of our life and eternity.

When Jesus said, “Let those without sin, cast the first stone,” He was referring to all of us.  I have to repent every day for the wrongs I’ve committed.  I can’t begin to itemize them, because I sin without even realizing it.  God promised a way out for sinners.  That way – the only way to be clean in God’s sight – purified of every dark blot – is Jesus, Christ.  Once forgiven, it’s our obligation to invite others to this knowledge.

We can’t hide in the walls of our churches or the safety of our own homes.  We need to be warriors for Christ.  It’s time to bring the Gospel to a sin driven world and restore what belongs to God.

Dear, God, heal our nation!



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    We all have to do what you’ve done in this post, which is to admit that we don’t have it all together and no basis on which to cast stones. But I take heart that recent events are sending us, the church, to our knees before God. There is no renewal in arguing, theologising, accusing or condemning. We wear ourselves out, and the world quite rightly ignores us, finding us irrelevant. Only in waiting on the Lord shall we find our strength renewed. He is the one to restore and make new. The battle is His.

      I absolutely agree that God will win in the end. We cannot change hearts. Only He can, but he has asked us to spread the good news and we should feel obligated to do so. Thanks for reading and for your encouragement.
