Not Out of the Woods: theunfetteredpreacher

My sister-in-law law, (Janet), is having a time of it. She walks towards daylight, when the woods close in around her.

It is a time of great concern. She was successfully operated on, for the brain aneurysm, and things looked good.

Then the little foxes began to spoil the vine. They keep running tests and changing meds, in an attempt to keep her on a path to recovery.

I ask you to pray with us for Wisdom and Knowledge for those who are treating her. For Grace, Peace, and Comfort for the families.

As I have mentioned, they are all committed Christians and believe all is possible with God.

Thanks for your continued prayer.

A Second Chance It Is! Tears of Joy: theunfetteredpreacher

My sister-in-law (Janet), came through the operation today in good shape. I understand this evening even her sense of humor works.

She’s going to be under the watchful eyes of the Medical people for a while, but it looks better than this am.

We thank you for your continued prayers, recovery is not going to be a walk in the park, but recovery brings tears of Joy and Thankfulness.

I know she will have the support and love of her family, and friends.

Thank you again for your love and prayers.

A Second Chance, or Just A Second? theunfetteredpreacher

A few years ago an older friend from church was diagnosed with brain cancer. He had not been sick, or even feeling poorly, but his life changed in a second.

He passed soon after.

Last year, my sweet wife Bette was diagnosed with stage four bone cancer. She had hurt her back she thought from lifting a heavy planter.

Our lives changed in a second.

Thankfully, the chemotherapy has delayed the progress of the disease, and she is doing well.

Last night we received a text from one of her sisters, the youngest of the six (Janet), has had a brain aneurysm, she is in the hospital, the family is gathering and prayer and love is being communicated to the Father.

Many lives, plans, and hopes have changed in a second.

We are praying and planning for a full recovery, for Wisdom and Knowledge for the Doctors, Nurses and others who are caring for her.

Special prayers for Comfort, Peace, and Grace for her daughters, grandchildren and her 5 sisters and their families.

She lives halfway across the country, so our current connection is in the Spiritual Realm. Please pray with us, that this change in a second, becomes a second chance.

I know no other family as full of love and faith as this family.

During our second of change, all the sisters, and some husbands rotated in and out of here to help and love us through. I know Janet will receive the same devotion.

Lord, heal her please.

True Lies: theunfetteredpreacher

The division of the right from the left, is not at all surprising.

The days of 3 tv channels and the NY Times as the paper of record are long gone.

The real problem now is the insistence that we have our ‘Own Set of Facts,’ that are more true than yours. CNN, MSNBC, NPR, ABC, CBS, NBC, all with one point of view, and the oddballs, FOX, along with Christian and Conservative talk with another.

WHAT ARE WE TO BELIEVE???

Oh to go back to the days when the News was the News, and we could trust it. Except, those days were never real. We only received one point of view.

We still only get one view from the Main Stream News. You can listen to any one or all of them, the same order, and opinions are given.

We cannot miss what they think or say. To find the other side you have to look for and listen for it.

If you can find a neutral poll and examine it, you find that 95% of News people are Liberals and voted for the Clintons and Obama.

If you look closer you find that Conservatives are better informed on politics. All you need to do to prove this is to watch any man on the street interviews.

It is funny, till you realize these people are allowed to vote. They do not know who the Vice President is, who is on the Supreme Court, or worse yet, who their Congressional Representatives are, Senate or House.

Yet they have opinions. Why? Even those who choose to avoid the News, cannot help but hearing the Main Stream Nonsense.

PLEASE, I BEG ALL YOU LIBERALS, LOOK BEYOND YOUR NORMAL NEWS SOURCE. FIND OUT THE REST OF THE STORY. Discern the truth.

What Happened? theunfetteredpreacher

What happened, that the Word, at this time, is not open and exciting to me. For the longest time, I cold read a verse and just sit in wonder and amazement at its power.

Now, it seems to be just words. Not Holy Words, or Spirit Empowering Words, but just words. Meaningless, Powerless, Worthless words. Not that the Word is at fault, it is within me. For some reason, I don’t get it.

I like to think I am still the man who hungers and thirsts for Righteousness. I understand that it is a dry season, that fasting and prayer will bring the refreshing, but I cannot seem to find that place.

It eludes me. I am done in.

Psalm 71:9-12

“Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth. For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together, Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him. O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.”
