THE SKY IS FALLING!!!

the-sky-is-falling-2

When I was a kid, it was always fun to hear a story right before going to bed.  I think some of them were meant to scare us to pieces, while others had a moral at the end.  We heard from Mother Goose, the Brothers Grimm (the scary guys,) the Happily Ever Afters and others based on folk tales.  One of them, “The Sky is Falling” was about a chicken named Chicken Little  The story doesn’t have much of a plot, but it shows how things get out of hand when we panic or exaggerate things.

A branch falls on Chicken Little’s tail and she believes the sky is falling down and she feels compelled to tell the others about it so they can save themselves.  The Villain, Foxy Loxy, eventually takes advantage of the situation and  invites her into his house for dinner.  Little does she know, she is  dinner.  Moral of the story – Don’t believe everything you hear, unless it’s backed up with some kind of proof or evidence or – fear mongering doesn’t accomplish anything, but put you into a stew.

If we were to focus too much on the events in the news today, we’d need treatment for depression.  Our world is in a terrible state.  Our own country is in moral decline; the world is constantly fighting terrorists; there are those seeking  political power driven only by greed and our media continues to paint a picture that all is well.  I wonder if they’d report the sky falling.

The media is often one of those crazies – spreading false news or news that incites and enrages normally calm and collected human beings.  Mobs of protestors are usually led by paid activists who could care less about what they are protesting and more about their easy paycheck.  Violence usually results and people are hurt or killed.  Why?

It’s time to reclaim the sky.  I can say for a fact, the last time I looked outside, the sun was shining and all is well.  Life goes on and there will be more of the same tomorrow.  That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be prepared for the end times.  In fact we must.

Our world will someday come to an end.  We’ve all sinned and don’t deserve anything but death and damnation.  God, the Father loves us so much that He became a man; He lived a perfect life, suffered a horrendous death, was buried, came back to life and rose to heaven.  He sent His Holy Spirit to live in us so we could share His love. We have been promised a new heaven and a new earth and we can be assured of eternal life.  He did this because He loves us. That is the Gospel in a nutshell – Good news that  you can trust and believe, because it’s true.

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.
