Good Morning! A few thoughts to ponder
If you truly look around, you would have to be blinkered if you can’t see that times are indeed becoming increasingly violent and dysfunctional. Its almost is as if darkness is creeping over normal lifestyles and trying to smother the beauty and Hope out of folks who have no aggressive political agenda or evil intentions, but a genuine desire to go about their own lives.
Then, think on this quote for a moment.
Faith for desperate days. The Bible is FULL of such days. It’s record is made up of them. Its songs are inspired by them, its prophecy is concerned with them and ALL its revelation has come through them. Desperate days are the stepping-stones in the PATH of LIGHT
They seem to always have been God’s opportunity and man’s school of Wisdom.
I have no idea who S. Chadwick was but I certainly value the comment. .
If this is God’s opportunity. How desperate are we?
Are we praying? are we truly living the LIFE of Freedom in Him that is our destiny?
LOVE. PASSIONATE LOVE for HIM
and for our NEIGHBOURS……….not a select few but ALL of THEM.
It’s time for a miracle.
but…..Are we yet DESPERATE ENOUGH?
Blazing heart …….this weekend and this coming week. a-men.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

In times like this, instead of prayers and fervent love; fear reigns and evil abounds. May the Lord help our faith to be desperate enough to stand in the midst of these storms.
Inspirational post as usual, thanks for sharing this truths.

“(Desperate days) God’s opportunity for developing man’s wisdom.” Please Lord make this true. It is time to turn our faith to him.
Yup, desperate times call for desperately firm faith!
