This is exactly what the enemy strives to do in our faith walk…he wants us to second guess our faith. But this time it didn’t work, the words tossed at me like some random trash was just that words. They did not hold merit or even make me question my God. But they did cause me to stop and pray for said individual who threw the words at me. I know that this person has questions regarding faith, how can I believe in a GOD that lets kids die? How can I believe in a God that allows cancer to be a part of our world. And for the first time in quite a long time I had no answer, no nugget of life, faith or experience could answer this person. I was thrown for a loop, how is it that I could not have an answer? Then it dawned on me, God is the answer for every question, it took me a moment then I answered her that God is over this world but not the ruler – satan is the ruler of this realm, and he loves mayhem, death, destruction, and wars. He presides in darkness and hates the light, he is the ruler of the things that happen here on earth because God is allowing him his time, then like a spoiled child he will reprimand him and put him in his place once and for all but until then things will happen in this world that are bad and don’t make sense.
So I am taking a bit off the track of the world and looking to my God for peace for the next 31 days I will be posting my thoughts of verses that were outlined by crosscards.com one of my favorite sites for ecards and great wallpaper – they had this peace 31 day writing challenge and I feel it is the perfect way to get back into the swing of writing – since its been since March from my last post. So sorry for being off the radar for so long but things got a bit crazy this spring besides foals on the ranch we also bought a bull calf (cute little guy) that we called Kristoff. Also had our first grand-daughter who is the apple of my eye…love to spend time spoiling her 🙂 then there was haying and other farm chores including fixing fence several times due to summer storms…I also was busy getting cemetery records in line for our local cemetery. I have volunteered since 2011 and before that time all records were kept on paper only I have been working to bring everything into the computer age…LOL
Sit back and enjoy the next posts since I am on day three already I am going to catch up right now
Here we are to hold peace within us and not hate, deceit or revenge we are called to be at peace with not only ourselves but others around us. And He tells us to be thankful not greedy, or lust after what we don’t have but love and be happy with what we have. Even if it is very little – He will pour out blessings when you least are looking for it.
Our spirit is supposed to be filled with good things not negative or hurtful things…God would not want pain and killing He wants PEACE and understanding. It’s sad to see our world ripped apart by people filled with hate, and greed for what others have, but then I am an alien here on this world my home is in HEAVEN!
Here again we are called to live in peace not violence. We are not to hate but to love. Until we get that thought in our minds down to our soul there will always be those seeking their own agenda wanting only for themselves. I am thankful that I live in America where most of the time we get along but lately there has been a huge unrest with groups in our land, they are out to make their point even if it goes and hurts others…as long as they get their message out there. Well that is just being self-centered and unloving…yet many call Christians the same thing but we are told in
1 John 4:4
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
This brings me great joy knowing that what is here is only temporary and that one day everything of this world will be gone and we will be residing in mansions and walk on streets of gold WOW how awesome will that be!
