  1. It's really awful how mixed up they are in their minds. That leader was planning attacks on our people in Iraq so the President did what he deemed best.
  2. @Tiana M Learn to look away fast when you are suddenly exposed to such art work. It actually is repulsive stuff. Why fill your eyes and mind with it. There is much beauty in the world to see.
  3. Hi, welcome! Enjoy the fellowship.

    Greetings

    Hi again. You should be able to post in the other areas now. Some active areas are general discussion, theology, prayer requests, fellowship and even TV section.
  5. My cat had two lumps removed, both benign. Just fatty tumors. One of them was growing quite a bit, she is a long hair so I didn't find it too soon. Hopefully your baby's is benign, too.
  6. One thing good though about Iran....they have the fastest growing amount of Christians! I think they have alot of young people, probably tired of living under Sharia law.
  7. Yes, the top general (similar to our Secretary of State) of Iran was killed by our rockets in Iraq. Will Iran act up now? I heard this general was planning attacks on our people in Iraq.
  8. This devotional by Charles Spurgeon is very encouraging, especially if we feel we can't do too much. Faith's Checkbook, Charles Spurgeon Blessing on Littleness He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great. (Psalm 115:13) This is a word of cheer to those who are of humble station and mean estate. Our God has a very gracious consideration for those of small property, small talent, small influence, small weight. God careth for the small things in creation and even regards sparrows in their lighting upon the ground. Nothing is small to God, for He makes use of insignificant agents for the accomplishment of His purposes. Let the least among men seek of God a blessing upon his littleness, and he shall find his contracted sphere to be a happy one. Among those who fear the Lord there are little and great. Some are babes, and others are giants. But these are all blessed. Little faith is blessed faith. Trembling hope is blessed hope. Every grace of the Holy Spirit, even though it be only in the bud, bears a blessing within it. Moreover, the Lord Jesus bought both the small and the great with the same precious blood, and He has engaged to preserve the lambs as well as the full-grown sheep. No mother overlooks her child because it is little; nay, the smaller it is, the more tenderly does she nurse it. If there be any preference with the Lord, He does not arrange them as "great and small" but as "small and great."
  9. BURDEN-BEARING "Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ."-- Gal_6:2. IN THESE words the Apostle is evidently thinking more especially of the trespasses and sins into which men and women fall. We are not to rejoice over their failure, nor talk about it to others, but to consider ourselves, remembering our own liability to fall in the event of temptation. We are to be tender, gentle, and compassionate, helping to bear the burden of temptation, remorse, and shame. There is great comfort for us all in these words, for surely, if our Lord expects us to forgive and restore our brother, we may count on Him to do as much for us! But sin is not the only burden we are to bear with our brethren. The young man or girl who fails to make good; the business man who meets with sudden reverse; those who suffer bitter disappointment; when faces are averted, and tongues are busily engaged in criticism--let us seek out the one who has consciously disappointed everybody, and help by our strong and tender sympathy. It is like the coming of the good Ananias into Saul's darkness, with the greeting: "Brother Saul!" We may help to bear the burden of bereavement--when the husband is suddenly stricken down, or the mother is taken away and there is no one to care for the children, then we may show our practical sympathy and helpfulness. All through His life on earth our Lord sought to carry the burdens of the people, and we are to follow in His steps. Sympathy means suffering with; and as we endeavour to enter into the griefs and sorrows of those around us, in proportion to the burden of grief that we carry do we succeed in lightening another's load. You cannot bear a burden without feeling its pressure; and in bearing the burdens of others, we must be prepared to suffer with them. This was the law of Christ, the principle of His life, and the precept which He enjoined on His followers to fulfil. Let us remember, also, that in carrying the burdens of others, we often lose our own. PRAYER For friends above; for friends still left below; For the rare links invisible between. For sweet hearts tuned to noblest charity; For great hearts toiling in the outer dark; For friendly hands stretched out in time of need, For every gracious thought and word and deed; We thank Thee Lord! AMEN. _______________________ Written by F. B. Meyer The F. B. Meyer devotions are distributed freely and Internationally in the excellent freeware Bible Study package called e-Sword.
  10. Please pray for my neighbor, Gustavo. He is not too old, maybe 40 or so. He was coming home tonight being pushed in a wheelchair by his roommate. He also had a surgical mask on. He told me he is under treatment for colon cancer. He also caught an infection in his throat. He would appreciate your prayers.
