Why are you angry at the cops?

Lamentations 3:39-40
Why should any living man complain when punished for his sins?
Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord.

Lamentations 3:22-23
Because of the Lord's great love we
are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness...

Repent people...
Hell is for real!

I love my job...

when I happen upon scenes like this.  His grace in the midst of day to day crime reports.

We oftentimes take the little things for granted.  Father, I am grateful for this window next to my desk.

And although i oftentimes feel like i'm not making a difference, Lord, You remind me that I am.  For that, I'M GRATEFUL!

The Image of Me...

August 30, 2012, at 12:11 p.m. the Monarch fluttered by my window. I’m doing case reviews and intermittently daydreaming and I could have missed her. I saw her gracefully pass by my window and then flutter across the median.

Thank you God for creating such a quiet, graceful, beautiful creature. She is surely me. Lol

The flesh is weak...

Psalm 56:3-4

When I am afraid,
I will trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; I will not be afraid.
What can mortal man do to me?

~ If your life isn't working out the way "you" planned it, try putting your HOPE in God and not MAN.

Love for a great day,

God we need you

Crime is up in the Nation's Capitol.  Our youth are so lost and it only leads me to believe that our society is not as concerned as we should be.  I'd hate to think you're one of "those" people who look the other way as long as you're not the one being victimized.  That sounds harsh but most people simply do not want to get involved.

This WORLD that we all live in and share is headed for disaster.  Sure, it looks good in some aspects...sunshine, green grass, butterflies and flowers in every color, but our human spirits are in desperate need of mending.  I have to believe that more people are wounded and hurting and that's the root of this chaos as opposed to living a life of joy and contentment.  That and the fact that SATAN has completely convinced the mind that it's all about self.

This war, the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes, the assaults, the thefts...cheating, lying, greed, will all come to pass when the Creator of the Universe, the maker of Heaven and Earth brings down his wrath on the evil ones.

You simply will not be able to face him if your life is not pleasing in His sight.  He offers Salvation to everyone and please, take it from me, His loves heals.  His love is unconditional.  His love is Universal.  He has no favorites and He is most merciful and forgiving.

Please talk about Him every chance you get.  Tell your children and your children's children.  His word, His truth and His presence can and will transform lives.  Even if it's one soul...knowing that you had a hand in that will have a rippling effect. someone, save someone or just hug someone.

Love, peace and blessings.

Lord, this is my prayer...

Love's On Its Way ~

Oh Father,
I wish I had understanding.
Never known more
Never been so well informed
We know the score
Heard it all before,
But I've never felt more powerless

There's so much blood on the streets
So much hope refused
So much grainy teenage photographs on the evening news

Oo, when everywhere's violence
Silently I go

Love's on its way
I hope it won't be too late

When the day comes
And I've counted all my sins
How mant I'll see
I want to be able to say that I did more, more than pray
I did more
Than just spend my money
Just writing letters
Than just going out marching
I did more than talking and saying the right thing
Wearing the right thing
It's time for an uprising

Love's on its way
Hope it won't be too late

Love's on its way
Love's on its way
Love's on its way

Hope it won't be too late

Can we save our youth?

What are we lacking in today's society?  Is that we don't fear authority, our parents or just out right don't fear the Lord?

Deuteronomy 6:5-9
Love the Lord Your God

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.  These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children.  Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them to your foreheads.  Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates."

Mark me on the scene

we all have a twin and this is mine, pictured above.
last week i was on the scene of multiple crimes and it saddens me that so many members of our society have no regard for the human life.  and as i post this, my inner voice is saying that a life without god is no life at all. yes, you may have a heartbeat, but do you have a soul?

What is burnout?

When you are constantly spinning your wheels doing something that you don't like and aren't good at as opposed to something you love and find pure delight in.

A new begining

How faithful is our God?

Last year was difficult for many of us.  I think a lot of people blamed the government and the economy.  Mostly true.  But if we are honest with ourselves and look deeply within ourselves, we are contributing factors as well.  As a community, we are not connected.  There are just as many Liquor Stores as there are Churches and today's youth have no idea what it means to worship.

Oftentimes, people think that the law doesn't apply to them and that is to include God's law.  His book of truth and His guide to our every day living.  Yes, it can be difficult to understand how something written over 2,000 years ago can apply to "us" today.  But trust me, I have found it to work whole heartedly.  It isn't easy, and you cannot do it alone.  But if you get involved in your local Church, root yourself in His promises and truth and then apply that to your life, someone close to you will notice your change, your faith and your light. God is seeking obedience, not perfection.

It will become a domino effect.  I've seen it happen in my life.  I wasn't always saved, believe it or not, my son was saved first.  He lived with his dad and that's a whole another topic.  But after my Salvation, I prayed fervently for my daughter and a year later, she was saved. 

My Lord and Savior can take me to Heaven whenever He so desires.  My children's names have been added to the book of life and I can rest in peace.

Let's believe that this year, God's presence will show up in a mighty way.  That fewer kids will be arrested and more parents, adults, teachers and the like will get involved to unite in love.  In the end, love is the key.

Love for a great start in this year of new Grace.
