Right In His Own Eyes…

“Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; but the LORD pondereth the hearts…”

(Proverbs 21:2 KJV).

Ever wondered why it is a challenge to deal with certain people? The answer can be found in the book of Proverbs. Unless a person walks daily with Christ as their personal Savior and is willing to submit to His Lordship, it is often quite difficult to show that person their wrong or error in any given situation or circumstance.

Unfortunately, the “pride of man” won’t allow us to see our own faults or errors, but be assured we are most willing to see others! For two or more people to truly find common ground to move forward in any matter they must both first remove the beam in their own eye before they can see clearly how to remove the speck from the other person’s eye. (Matthew 7:5) To self-reflect requires humility that comes only from the Hand and Heart of God. For one to be humble in any given situation it requires prayer asking God to “reveal” all deception, wrong motives, and self-will. As much as some folk would like, we cannot ALL be right! We can each share a piece of the pie which is made up of each person’s perspective, but to gain the whole pie we must put those pieces together!

Successful mediation takes great patience and hard work when the goal is to reach Peace and Understanding between two different perspectives or opinions. But, when it is finally reached the outcome is JOYFUL. Don’t be afraid to look at something from another person’s perspective as long as their perspective lines up with the Word of God; not their personal feelings, opinions, or thoughts. Opinions and feelings are likes noses; we all have one!

So, today remember that what you may feel is right may be right only in your own eyes. Take your feelings, thoughts, opinions, and motives to God in truthful and honest prayer seeking HIS guidance, understanding, and wisdom. God is the ONLY one who can ponder the hearts and intentions of ALL mankind; all stakeholders involved.

Remember, “Greater is He that is in us than he who is in the world!” (I John 4:4) Let’s take everything we do to God in prayer. Wishing you much Peace along the way. Amen.

Remember, God Loves You!

Election Day…It’s Time to be Heard

Election Day…It’s Time to be Heard…

Tomorrow, November 4, 2014, will be an important day in the lives of Americans. It is mid-term election day. Oh, how I wish that ALL Americans would take part in their civic duty to vote the convictions of their heart. It is a privilege as well as duty. But, sadly, too many people will neglect this most valued trust and allow “others” to be their voice. But, “It’s Time to be Heard.”

If you are like me you are probably wondering which “voice” will be heard? Will it be the super liberal voice that chooses to uphold every whim and wham that comes along with little to no restrictions or restraints whatsoever? Or, will it be the more conservative voice that upholds logical boundaries and standards to protect everyone within our society as a whole? If you are a follower of my blog, you already know where I stand…I am a conservative who upholds traditional family values and Christian principles. So, my voice will be heard as a conservative.

It’s not against the law to stand on one side or the other. I have the same right to vote as the super liberal; and the super liberal has the same right to vote as me. That’s the privilege of voting one’s own conscience and convictions. The problem lies within those who seek “not” to vote either way, but live with the choices of others.

As an American I have the right to speak out against abortion. I have the right to speak out against non-traditional marriages. However; I am for the protection of innocent life, and I am for the protection of traditional marriage. I am against Hollywood’s attempts to magnify sin and make fun of righteousness. I am for the promotion of righteousness and against the magnification of sin. I liked it better when the good guys won and the bad guys lost. Life was much simpler then.

I am for protecting our nation’s borders and protecting our citizens against wide-spread diseases such as Ebola. I am for the support of Israel and against the wide-spread terror of radical Islam. I am for a strong military and support of military families all across the globe. I am for the protection of our elderly and care for our poor who truly cannot fend for themselves. But, I am against the redistribution of wealth to give to those who do not seek to work, but rather seek to receive the benefits of someone else’s hard work. I support and uphold education; both public and private. And, I am persuaded in the belief that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and the only way to God. I believe that there is a Heaven to gain and a hell to shun for the Christian Believer.

This is who I am…And, currently within the borders of my nation, I have the right to stand on these principles whether they are currently popular or not. And, that my friend is what election day is all about. “It’s a Time to be Heard.” VOTE!

Remember, God Loves You!
