  1. Thanks for the fresh perspective, @FresnoJoe. For some reason, the end of the story brought this scripture to mind: Hebrews 4:12 New King James Version (NKJV) 12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. ...... And just in case anyone is wondering why..... Trolls beware! While here, you will receive a healthy dose of scripture. It just might pierce the heart.
  2. Reading this and thinking about difficult situations we all face in this life reminds me of especially one part of the original post of this thread. "Run to God!" I'm so glad that as Christians we can share the Good News about the hope we have in Christ. I hope someone shared with Samuel Clemens.
  3. "Third parties" are affected. Children are often adopted and raised by same-sex couples. Ask any teacher if the living arrangements affect these children. Even the teacher is affected when a confused 9 year old "Mark" wants to wear a dress and be called "Julie," and the teacher is forced to accept that choice and refer to him as a girl. When governmental legislation ignores God's authority, chaos reigns instead of order and peace. We all become affected third parties.
  4. Hi @HAZARD.... Personal pronouns don't stand just for mortal beings alone. Personification is the representation of a non-human thing as if it were human. In the book of Proverbs, for example, wisdom is personified as a woman and referred to as "she." Proverbs 1:20 says, "Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares;".... MANY more examples of personification exist in scripture: Law, sin, and death are personified in Romans 5-7. Floods clap their hands and hills sing in Psalm 98:8. Abel's blood cries out to God from the ground in Genesis 4:10.... Just saying....
  5. Praying this for you.... Romans 15:13 English Standard Version (ESV) 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
  6. We don't have to wait to see Jesus in a dream to know He is real. With eyes of understanding, we clearly see Him revealed in Scripture, and we believe. Isaiah 40:5 New King James Version (NKJV) 5 The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
  7. Really? Do you vote at all? If so, how do divorce your beliefs from the issues in an election? Just curious.
  8. Father, we praise You for knowing we need love and companionship and for providing us with family, friends, and precious animals. We know these are all gifts from you, but only temporary ones. Only You are eternally present for us. Help us all to trust in the sufficiency of Your love. Help us all to BE loving, caring ambassadors for You in the lives of those around us. Father, we all miss those we have loved and lost and yearn to see them again, even though we trust You and know all are in Your capable hands. Please ease our pain, Father, while keeping our wonderful memories intact. Draw us ever closer to You for the comfort we need, and help us to share what we receive from You with others. Ease our anxieties about those we are no longer able to care for, Father, for we know You ARE able and have a plan. Thank You so much, Father, for our brother David, who has been willing to share with us these feelings of grief that are common to all. Strengthen him with Your promises; calm him with Your Spirit; and give him rest. In Jesus name we pray.... Amen.
  9. I'd vote NO. Of course, I would have voted NO on passing the 21st Amendment to the Constitution, too. I've never seen anything very good come from the consumption of alcohol, but I've seen lots of bad.
  10. I look forward to reading your posts, @fileoflife. There are lots of nooks and crannies in these forums that can be blessed by a positive outlook and the joy of the LORD!
  11. Thanks so much for confessing this deception, @DDisconnect. I know you must feel better just being yourself--the you God made for His own special purpose. You are forgiven. And btw, I can testify that looking for new profile pics can be a lot of fun (unless you can't find a good cover photo to go within it). I change mine once in awhile, and so do many others. Enjoy the freedom of being yourself!
  12. fileoflife, and welcome! We're so glad you're here! You have our prayers now, in addition to your own; and we know how powerful the prayers of the saints are! Look what our Father has already done for you, and I am certain He has touched many more lives through your testimony. God is so good and so faithful! I know He will continue to bless you mightily with the comfort and joy of His presence. Enjoy the time you spend here at Worthy. We hope to be as encouraging to you as you have already been to us!
