THE GOLDEN RULE?

parker_hart_wizardofid4

I have turned off the TV this morning – I refuse to read the headlines on the internet – I am going back to bed and bury my head in the sand.  NO I’M NOT!

This world is out of control.  The devil has been unleashed in every corner of it – including what once was a most precious gem within it.  No, I’m not talking about some far off country.  I’m referring to the good old USA.  This place that I’ve been proud of for a lifetime has become unrecognizably tarnished.

There is corruption in the government, which isn’t new. There’s defiance in the streets to the point of disgust.  There’s hatred all around and somehow that simply rule which God gave to His people, centuries ago, has been long forgotten.

Matthew 7:12  Matthew 7:12 So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

Now we live in a place that accepts all kinds of behavior because we’re told to be tolerant.  Disrespect is shown to anyone who doesn’t go along with your beliefs – those in authority or the peacemakers – and the is no longer satisfaction with our governing leaders.  We are taught to  take what we can get in life because we deserve it.  Good behavior has been substituted with bad and right and wrong are invisible concepts.  We have a media that judges crimes before they ever go to court. We have politicians that lie and cheat and continue to get away with it.  Our society is all for self and forget about your neighbor.  We have become so complacent and desensitized, that nothing seems to bother us anymore.  ANYTHING GOES!

So, does it make sense  to simply ignore what’s happening?  Do we quarantine ourselves from the rest of the world and hope it will magically go away?  Only God can change hearts.  This is a time for His intercession.  This is a time that we get back to His basic principles and start to put ourselves on the back burner.  We need a huge revival of faith in God for this country.  It’s the only thing that will save her.

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.

    Amen. I wish I could shut it out, but I can’t.

    The only joy I have is knowing that I’ve been allowed to be a citizen of a kingdom that cannot be shaken or corrupted—God’s kingdom. This world is not my home.

      I wish I could just shut it out too, but
      God tells us that we are in the world, not of it. I have to continue to look ahead to heaven. Can’t wait.
