Fed up with it all now

29 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I'm fed up with hearing about Christians being murdered by Muslims and then people blaming it on anybody who believes in God.

 

I'm fed up with all the wars, invasions and threats in the World and then somehow Israel being blamed for it all.

 

I'm fed up with people mocking what I believe in.

 

I'm fed up with being peddled lies day after day and being expected to accept these as the truth.

 

I'm fed up with living in a morally inverted World where evil is called good and good is called evil.

 

I'm fed up of being expected to toe a political line that I don't believe in, and embrace things that I don't want to embrace..

 

I'm fed up with people complaining about the most trivial of things but ignoring the real problems that the World is facing.

 

I'm fed up with being laughed at and treated as a fool because I no longer do the things that the World expects me to.

 

 

I'm just fed up..................................

Psa 46:1  To the choirmaster. Of the Sons of Korah. According to Alamoth. A Song. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 

Psa 46:2  Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, 
Psa 46:3  though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah. 
 
1Pe 5:7  casting all your anxiety onto Him, for He cares for you. 
 
God Bless you Oak. 
 
Love Nigel.

I'm just down today. I've been paying a lot of attention to the news. It's not the wars, the suffering and all the tragedies that bother me so much - the news has always been like that. It's the lies behind it all.

Just my opinion, but if you look at your posts, it is all from the news, and all doom and gloom.

 

Paul tells us to renew our minds constantly. We can't do that by concentrating on the negative all the time, especially with stuff we have no control over.

 

Stuff like that rubs off after a while. When I am feeling like that I retreat into prayer and my bible for a spell....

Hey, man, I'm a newshound myself.  But I don't get down, I get angry.  And as Dr David Banner used to say, "You wouldn't like me when I'm angry."   So..........this verse helps:

 

In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  (John 16:33  KJV)

I usually get angry too but anger is getting me nowhere, so today I am down.

Hopefully, tomorrow I will be angry again.

Informing people and politics doesn't really get rid of the corporate slavery though. We're all pretty much programmed for greed at this point. It's the only way to survive.

I'm cheered up now. I just needed to vent my frustration amongst people who will understand and may feel the same from time to time.

 

The World can be so annoying at times.

No matter how bad we feel about any situation in this world, just remember you are a stranger here and your duty is to carry people safely to the father by proper evangelism. The world has nothing more to offer than what you are seeing now. It's all a lie, only Jesus is the way to true life. So looking onto Jesus the author and finisher of your faith. Thanks dear

You need to hear those news so that there will be a consciousness in your spirit to always keep you at alert. Not that the news keep you on your feet, but it puts a sensation in you that triggers your spirit into trusting God the more in an unreliable world of evil and deception

Hey Oakwood, I feel fed up too. Especially with the world calling good bad and what's bad as good. Although we must remember that God told us it would get like this. It did, and it keeps getting worse. I often wish God would remove me from this world because I'm fed up.  But when I go out, what do I do? I usually talk to people about God. Then I realize that doing that is not going to make God remove me. In the Lord's prayer Jesus said to pray for God's will to be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven. I take that line serious. I try to do God's will whenever I get the chance. I'm still fed up because I don't see a lot of other people doing this too. But sometimes I do, and I look for that. Then I'm less fed up. We all need to improve on our doing God's will on Earth. If enough of us did this, there would be less to be fed up about.

4th choice: Praise God anyway, because He is worthy. Praise Him because He still holds the world in His hands. Thank Him for loving us so much He sent His Son to redeem us.

Habakuk 3:17-18

Though the fig tree may not blossom,

Nor fruit be on the vines;

Though the labor of the olive may fail,

And the fields yield no food;

Though the flock may be cut off from the fold,

And there be no herd in the stalls--

Yet I will rejoice in the Lord,

I will joy in the God of my Salvation.

Psalm 37:1-2 Do not fret because of evildoers

Nor be envious of workers of iniquity,

For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,

And wither as the green herb.

V7 Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him;

Do no fret because of him who prospers in his way,

Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;

Do not fret--it only causes harm. NKJV

We are IN the world, but (thank Jesus!) NOT OF IT!!

I think it is of grave importance to always remember WHO we are IN CHRIST!

We are ambassadors, sojourners, aliens, reconcilers. We are to be so very careful not to love the world or the things of the world, but to love Christ first and serve him first. I believe that we should only expose ourselves to the world's version of "news" or anything else as we have the specific leading and approval of the Spirit. We need to live by the Spirit and not fulfill the endless curiosities and desires of the flesh. We live in dangerous and anti-spiritual times. We need to guard ourselves, and yet be ready to witness to that hard and cruel world that we know the Savior.

Blessings, Andy
