Midnight Prayer

Man Praying

Being a late night guy, I tend to get more sensitive the later it gets.

As it approaches midnight, I felt to offer this prayer.

I am aware of all the distress in the world.

The threat of ISIS, the feelings of hatred that is transpiring globally toward that which I consider holy.

To be naïve to these issues would be foolish.

Hope is the weapon to oppose hatred.

“God, it would seem that the world as we have known it, is truly approaching a precipice.  Once we, as a globalized community go over that precipice, there is little that can be done.  Except to hope in You.  May truly evil men come to their death.  May wicked men be caught in the snare of their own plan.  May those who oppose with violence your Gospel of Good News, either succumb to your reign, and seek violence no further, or may they be destroyed by Your love for those who You consider to be your own. May our children, be protected from any harm.  May we, as their parents realize that without you and the Hope of Christ, we have nothing to offer the next generation.  It is in the name and Hope of Christ that we pray.”  Amen.

It’s A Beautiful Day

A Beautiful Day

If you are alive, it is a beautiful day.

Discover something pretty and stare at it.

Find something exquisite and let it not out of your sight.

Visualize something beautiful and let it not escape your memory.

Then walk away from it knowing you have witnessed something beyond description.

A Big Purpose

Purpose

The text read like this.

“So let me ask you. I’ve been thinking cause we’ve been talking about it lately.  I feel like my purpose here on earth is to make people laugh and entertain others.  Is that not a reasonable thought?  It just seems like a small purpose, but maybe God will use that for something big someday.”

My response?  “It is reasonable and that is a HUGE purpose.”

“‘What’ and ‘if,’ two words as non-threatening as words come. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: ‘What if?’…”
