Things We Never Dreamed

Please… Help If You Can

They give it a name—preferably, one that has a cool sounding acronym—and, BAM, it’s a disease and they have a pill and/or treatment for it. Both are usually quite expensive, but, hey, you’ve got health insurance, right? If you don’t have health insurance, the IRS (<— coolest acronym ever, right?) would like to talk to you.

That said, I saw one—a disease I’d never heard of–this morning, which led me to announcing one of my own. I’m not going to tell you what the one I saw was (Holy cow! Did you know “was” spelled backward is “saw”?), because sure-as-shootin’, you, a friend, or a relative—maybe just somebody you know—will “think” they have it, and chastise me ear tuck quote 2for making light of your/their malady.

Anyway, the one I’ve invented (I think most of them are invented), and diagnosed my wife, Sherry as having it, is AHS (I checked, that one is not currently being used by Big Pharma). Yes, I am sad to inform you, she is suffering (I do NOT use that word lightly) from Annoying Husband Syndrome.

I’ll be setting up one of those donation site thingy’s later today. Please… help if you can.

What We’re Afraid Of

It is my contention that if we are truly filled with faith, we will have no fear.

The United States of America was once a nation of faith, but this is no longer true. Yes, there are still millions of people who profess a faith in God, and a few of them truly trust and believe in Him. Too many do not.

A state of fearChurches change their messages and subvert their belief systems for fear of losing their tax exempt status, or losing members. Their fears center on money.

Today’s Christians, following the example of their respective pastors and church leaders, live in fear as well. Their fear is also based on money.

“For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.” Job 3:25

Just Another Word

In my younger days, I was afraid of nothing, but not for the same reason I’m unafraid today. Back then, I was unafraid because I foolishly thought myself to be invincible.

Nowadays, I still consider myself invincible but for good reason; my firm belief God is my protector. I believe I’m part of God’s plan, and until my part is completed no terror of night, nor arrow that flies by day, can harm me. He says it is so.

With God as our shelter and protector, we free ourselves from worry and stress—both of which do nothing except keep us from the solution. Instead of worrying about the bad things, we should dwell on the good things, knowing God is our keeper and protector, and we have nothing to fear.

another word for worry

You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day. Psalm 91:5

Works For Me!

rv-park-2-quote (2)

We’re all unique individuals, and our needs and solutions will be unique too. What works for me might not work for you.

For example, some contend it’s important to say things of the Lord, and I agree to an extent. But, when things of this world assail me, I don’t quote Bible verses and call on God to protect me because, I know He will. There’s a saying: “God said it, I believe it, and that settles it.” That’s the way I see it.

If we set our eyes upon Jesus, we will have no fear, and nothing can harm us. God is our refuge and our fortress, and as we dwell in His shelter and shadow, we are safe within the sturdy walls of His love. And as we continue to learn about Him and understand His unconditional love, the fortress grows even stronger.

I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust. Psalm 91:2

I’m No Expert

wws gc 23 quoteOne afternoon, after hitting a bad shot, my favorite golfing buddy said, “I need to go to the practice range.” Without hesitation, I replied, “That’d be a waste of time, because you’d just be practicing doing it wrong.” He thought about it for a moment, and had to admit I had a valid point.
