ANGER AND RAGE AND HATE, OH MY!

Mark+Twain+and+anger

He tells it like it is and even though he’s not the average politician, he’s followed by those who have held their anger with the government within.  They yearn for new leadership without the ties to an overly corrupt body of administrators.  Still he has been involved in some questionable ventures and comes off as the neighborhood bully.

She screams for assistance for the poor and needy, yet her lies have jaded her over the past administration.  She continues to be investigated by the FBI and still  is allowed to run for president of the United States. Her husband’s administration was filled with lies and scandal.  Are we in for more of the same?

Our streets are filled with young people who haven’t had the benefit of learning how to respect authority , but they’re given more opportunities than the average guy.  They don’t respect parents, teachers, law enforcement, fellow men – nobody, because they have never been taught.  Now the protectors of the people have become the criminals.

Our classrooms are becoming unmanageable, because teachers’ hands are tied.  They’re not allowed to discipline, because these youngsters’ feelings will be hurt. When parents are confronted about bad behavior, they defend the child and say it was the teacher’s fault. Instead of turning to their family for encouragement, they’re being swept up by gangs or recruited by terrorists.

Terrorists roam in every part of the world.  Their insidious desire to be of value to anyone turns them into walking time bombs – hoping to go to heaven for the sake of their god.  They have invaded our neighborhoods, our schools, our workplace and our communities.  Terror is alive and well everywhere..

Churches fall away from the truth of God’s inspired Word – the Bible – and turn to “feel good” churches that refuse to mention the word sin. The devil loves to get into our churches and do his dirty work.

We are becoming a nation of political correctness and tolerance for just about any kind of behavior.  In an effort to be kind, we are giving up our own rights.

I am a sinner.  I know that I was born a sinner.  I will continue to sin against God until  I take my last breath.  I may look like any other nice, old lady, but I get angry.  I struggle over the state of our world.  I hate it when I hear about abortion and the possibility of ending life of those who prefer to die.  My temper flares when I see others being taken advantage of.  I get out of control when I see or hear about children being abused in any way. I long for the day of judgment, but I still fear the result, because I am a sinner.

A while back there was new guy in town who captivated his audience.  He was the current rock star – yet truly politically correct – willing to do anything for his fellow man.  The people adored him, yet only a few days after they honored him with a parade, they were shouting insults at him, spitting on him, throwing rocks at him.

When we get wrapped up in our own problems – when the world seems like it’s got to end right now – when anger and rage and hate fill every corner of our existence – when we feel like there’s no hope – an innocent, willing servant  comes to us.  His mission was to buy us back – to save and forgive us from all shame and guilt – to wash us clean so that God would finally accept us as His children.

This is our only hope in times like this.  God loves us in spite of our anger, hate and rage and He has everything under control.  Even the yucky stuff!

For further comfort read Psalm 91.

 

About atimetoshare.me

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 Amazon.com.

  2. I feel defeated today. There is so much evil in this crazy world. Evil without and evil within. I cry out to God, wondering if He hears.

    My daughter, an awesome loving mother, is in court today for guardianship of her severely disabled son who just turned 18. His father lies, his father has money to pay for legal help and witnesses to back up his lies. He never seemed to love their son like my daughter did, it appears to me that he is all about breaking my daughter, period. My daughter is working her way through graduate school and doesn’t have money for lawyers. I have been praying and praying and praying. Praying for justice, praying for God to deliver my daughter and my grandchildren out of the hands of the fowler.

    A little while ago my daughter sent me a text: “isn’t going well I can’t stop crying I need strength”

    A few minutes after that, I tried to talk to my husband and he blew me off. I told him how much it mattered to me and still he blew me off. Now I feel alone and defeated.

    Sorry to be a downer. The world is hurting everywhere, I know. Dear Lord Jesus please come quickly. I pray this, but don’t know if I am ready.

      I can’t imagine the suffering you’re going through. It hurts just as much when we see our kids going through stressful times. It’s like reliving all the pain we had to go through. Both of us have lived long enough to know that our suffering is only temporary and God will use it for his purpose. I will pray that God gives you the strength to endure. I’m always here if you need me.

        I am glad I was able to help. I think we can all help each other through our writing. I started blogging to share with others, but soon discovered that we can really be a network for caring for our fellow Christians as well. God bless you and give you peace.

      • God has blessed me with peace, just since I left my last comment. My husband came into the room and explained to me why he wasn’t able to talk right away when I wanted him to. We had a deep heart to heart talk and now we are ok again. Yay! We are still waiting to hear from my daughter. Praying for God’s will above all, knowing His ways are not our ways.

        God bless you and your husband, too. ❤

  3. Kathy this is so spot on—talk about holding in anger at what is taking place!!! I just might explode!!—this political business of ours is a mockery of our founding fathers—-it’s absolute craziness, sadness and so out of control–no wonder our young people have no respect, civility or morality, look at the older generations….All I have to say for the “she” of all of this is one word… Benghazi—-people died a heinous death under her watch and she has merrily been allowed to move on-never mind breaking laws over National Security—-
    and because I am exasperated by the inability of our current administration to reign in any of the craziness as young people are allowed to march and riot and loot when they don’t like a decision, which is being called “the right to protest,” I just don’t remember when protest meant to vandalize entire cities and beat, scorn and kill any police officer, or white person for that matter, because no one seems to be able to deal with the bedlam of anarchy—and I am amazed that so many are voting for the “bombastic one” yet are being ignored by the powers that be who are doing their darnedest to shut him up and remove him—does not the voice of the voters matter? They, me, we, have gravitated to the likes of someone like him because things for the middle American seems so hopeless—and truly frightening while we allow ISIS to go unchecked. As Europe is rocked by more tragedy, while our president sits with a dictator at a ball game—what is wrong with this picture!!!

      I know what you’re saying. I think the majority of people have had enough. Our voices have been silent for too long. I’m not sure how any of this is going to play out, but I do know that God is in control. If I did t have that to hang onto I would totally despair. The only way we can make our country great again is to repent of our sins and return to God. By doing so, he will heal our land.
