I have so many things I want to say in this blog post . So many thoughts going through my head because there is so much , well , just plain junk going on in the world. But one thing remains God is on the throne and there is only one way to Him. That is through Jesus Christ.
I have been so busy hence why no blog post lately. Between a injured husband, a miscarriage, a new pregnancy, everyday life in a large family, a daughter with gall bladder issues, and so much more I couldn't begin to get into, along with sick kids the past two weeks. But I have had a lot on my heart. I am trying to get my thoughts in order but the kids are screaming and running around like crazy people so I hope I even make sense.
First, I want to talk about the transgender bathroom issue. I know, I know. I hear you saying ugh right about now. Yes, we are all tired of hearing about it and many of us are REALLY tired of our president pushing his agenda on us. But... this is my only time I am going to blog about this. Hopefully,lol! This is not a transgender issue. Not in the least little bit. While that is a sin that is a whole different post and a whole different subject. The people that are boycotting and are upset are not upset because of the transgender issue. They are upset because Target and now the government(with the passing of the public school thing) just said it is completely ok for anyone to use the bathroom they want. And it has already been shown what is going to happen. Tell the mother whose daughter just got choked out in a bathroom that she is overreacting when she says people should be using the bathroom of the sexual orientation they were born. This completely allows SATAN literally a straight shot into the bathroom of our children. Do you honestly think perverts are not gonna use this???? Honestly? I am also so sick of every time Christians stand up for what is right we are called names or saying we are spewing hate. Yes, some Christians go about things the wrong way but so do a lot of people. But really this isn't a christian , non christian issue either(although if you are a christian you better start standing up for what is just and right). It is a issue of safety. I cannot see how some are so blinded. This world is a sad place. I wish you could just trust people but sadly that is not the case anymore. Sin has blinded so many. Do you really think a father and husband is going to stand outside a bathroom and watch a man(because he supposedly feels like a woman that day) go into the bathroom with his wife and daughter and not do anything. This is bound to start all kinds of problems. And while all this is going on the president continues to pass things behind our backs and do things we have no idea of. WAKE UP PEOPLE! There I said my piece, now I will get off this soapbox and just continue to pray for this nation. And in the meantime NOT be shopping at Target.
Secondly , Don't get caught up in the world. Geez, it is so especially easy to do and so very hard to continue following the Lord. But the rewards are greater than any struggle we face. This is just my temporary home and I have to remember that. I am going to be completely honest here. I did for a little while get caught up in the world and I am trying to put my focus back on where it should be. I won't go into all it did to me but I will say I lost my JOY. Nobody on this earth can feel the void in your life besides Jesus. People will let you down. I even wondered if I could continuing following the Lord's will for life. Told you I was going to be completely honest. Especially after my miscarriage. But God again has remained faithful and just. He will never leave us or forsake us. Doesn't mean he won't spank us so to say but He is always with us and his grace is sufficient. My most favorite verse I think is 2 Cor. 12:9. -"But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made
perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about
my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me." So, I will continue putting my trust where it belongs no matter what comes my way because He has blessed me so very much.
Lastly, I just want to say do not let the devil have a foothold in your life. There is so many ways he can get in. his goal is to steal, kill, and destroy. We have become so immune to sin and such in our society we just keep going on about our business. We including myself are so self absorbed in our own lives and in ourselves we fail to see so many out there that are hurting. When did we stop loving others and being so very hateful to each other. When did the church(talking about the people not a building) stop being there for each other in their times of need. I see how beautifully the church meets some needs but then I also see how it is failed miserably with some. I want to be salt and light. Don't get me wrong. I will stand up for what I believe is just and right but I also want to just love on people. I do not hate the sinner , I hate the sin!!! My challenge to you this week is to open your eyes. Get off your phones. Talk to people. Check on others and find someone to love on this week. Someone to help. And most importantly make sure your children are okay. Spend time with them, talk to them, because they are your most important mission.
God is bigger than all of this!
