Yesterday, I watched a little preaching on tv before going to church. The speaker told of how he, a preacher in 2017, has a preacher friend who has a church with their own beer brand. Another preacher, he said, brought a message in front of his congregation while relaxing in a recliner with a beer in hand. Ag! I’d say what is this world coming to, but I know. I’ve read the end of the Book. Between the Revelation chapter 3 thoughts, the Church of Laodicea, 1 Timothy 4: 1: “The Spirit clearly says that in later times, some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons….”, I know what’s coming.
I have openly confessed to living a rather sheltered life. I’m glad for this. I know of some people who have abandoned the faith, refuse to marry, and don’t recognize these things as Satanic manipulation. I pray.
I thank God: I’ve recently been praying in the Spirit, because there’s so much to pray for and out of obedience, I don’t want to merely put my opinionated take on my prayer requests to God.
We went to church and the kids sang. This was great. The choir director had a child, under the age of 10, pray aloud before the whole church. As I write this, my eyes are filling with tears of emotion…. The child prayed: “Dear God, please protect us all from drugs, alcohol, and guns. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.”
That’s where our world, in America, is now, folks……..ag!!! That wasn’t the world I grew up in………. I know other countries have it worse……but, this child innocently prayed this aloud……….heart-felt…..
End times, folks……………
EXPLOSION, I heard, a recent Gallop poll said only 20 % of Americans believe the Bible is really the pertinent, inspired direct Word of God…..
So many scriptures come to mind, including ones that refer to these as being “the last days”. But, ya see, if there are those who don’t believe scripture, this won’t mean anything to them……How bout history? How many years ago was it that We the People learned in a one room school house and didn’t have Houghton Miflin texts…….? We had The Bible…………………….Folks learned to read, recite, and memorize from God’s Word……………
Bring those days backkkkkkkkkkkk…..
People and animals bond better if they have the chance to have siblings.
I know terribly lonely people who grew up, and live sibling-less.
I enjoy watching my cats. We have 2 that we got separately. They don’t have blood relatives. They are very quirky. We have 4 that we got: they were bonded siblings that couldn’t be separated. Those 4 groom each other. They play together. They give way to letting the others go first to the food bowls.
Ever watched “The Big Bang Theory” on tv?
Have you ever heard of Dark Matter? It’s so dark, it repels all light. See Exodus 10: 22 and 23 “And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days.”
“They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.”
Jesus is the Light of the world
Think about it…if you have Him, you’ll never be in curse of darkness
“All or Nothing” Jesus Save Me From Lukewarmness
Let’s all start bombarding the publisher to get this published. It’s taking quite a while. I submitted it a month ago. There I go being impatient again. My first book took 2 weeks to get published and birthed.
This book stems from God’s Word: Revelation 3: 15- 17. God wants us passionate about and for Him. If we are merely lukewarm, He will spue us out of His mouth, have nothing to do with us, and He won’t answer our prayers; nor will He bless us.
The author refers to how we aren’t to have gray areas in our relationship with God. She tells life testimony and scriptures how we are to include God in every part of our lives, including our marriages, health, and joy and laughter. We are to stay away from temptations and little foxes that try to pull us off the path of God’s perfect will. We are to for-go feelings of nothingness and worthlessness because, after all: God is faithful.
Contact the publisher at catholiclifeinternational.org “Please get Lori Church’s third book published as soon as possible. We want to read “All or Nothing” via e-book or flip book.” You can tell them you want to read it as a physical, paperback book, also, if you want………..
Wanting can be a positive thing. We want the best for our loved ones, right?
What else do you want? When do you want it?
We want what we want–Now! This book includes testimony of the author’s adventure to sell two houses in one year and to move to another state. She kept her faith in God and He was faithful. The author strove to not be found wanting in God’s eyes. She desired to retain her Christ-given fruits of the Spirit. She named her chapters after these.
You know, even God has wants. He wants our love. He wants our faith. There are many scriptures in this book including the main theme based one from the book of Daniel: “You have been weighed in the balances and have been found wanting”. God was judging a sinful king.
One Amazon review of this book says: “I found this book to be refreshing. We tend to get caught up in wanting things so easily (like breathing). Reading this book took me back to the story of Nebuchadnezzar, in the Bible. He was found wanting just like we do. I started catching myself saying I WANT a lot and had to re-evaluate my thinking process. I have to often remind myself that God is my Shepherd, I shall not Want.”

The author was waiting. She had many things she was waiting for. God inspired her to write of her experience. She was impatient, but trusted God. There were every day trials, family situations, finances and more to deal with. Everyone has these kinds of things, right? All creatures have had times of waiting. My cats even wait to be fed….
Have you ever gotten impatient waiting? As a Christian, you don’t want to lose your cool while impatience is eating you alive. What kind of testimony would that be? So, this book is to encourage and inspire others to seek God and His Word. It’s the story of the author’s adventure while selling two houses in one year. She had major faith in God. She had trials! Some trials reminded her of stuff from her past. So, she shares some of that: yet, God was faithful.
As one review states on Amazon, “Lori expresses such honesty; she really helps the reader going through stressful situations , have hope in knowing all will be well, just hang in there.”
Yes, from experience and a husband in his mid-fifties, I can tell you prostates change with time. Average men probably should not need Cialis in their fifties. When we are in our sixties and seventies, we will see. We will be sure and let you know………
Educational moment brought to you by Me……….(Lol)
