When it’s easier to go along with the crowd


Isaiah 59:15
 There is no truth-telling anymore, and anyone who tries to do right finds he is the next target. It’s true. The Eternal One saw it all and was understandably perturbed at the absence of justice.


When you stand for #truth and against
 #deception and wickedness, you become the bad guy in the eyes of many. – Pastor Adrian Rogers #quote


I’ve been mulling over this blog post until I listed to Pastor Adrian Roger’s sermon titled “A Nation in Crisis.” We are a people who are falling away quickly, and most of us are going along for the ride.

When the Lord changed my life, I resisted because it meant leaving the comfort zone of my own perfect little world. It meant allowing God to show me the things I needed to change. It meant changing the things I believed and the things I did that weren't in God’s plan. 

It also meant stepping out for Biblical truth and stepping on lots of toes.



The fact remains: It’s not okay for two men or two women to get married. It’s not Biblical, and since the Bible is my Book of the Law, then I stand by it – albeit alone. I'm not compromising God's word and I'm not going along with the crowd. I did that for far too many years.   



No more.


I’ll take the road less travelled.

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…
