“Men, I can see that our voyage is going to be disastrous and bring great loss to ship and cargo, and to our own lives also.”
Paul (formerly Saul) suffered a lot for God’s glory, and we are blessed by it. He wouldn’t have had it any other way. Are we as accepting of our walk of faith?
Job 2:10 (NIV) BibleHub
He replied, “You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?” In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.
“Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord.” John 20:18
Imagine the joy welling up inside her after Jesus‘ words came true; He was raised 3 days after dying?
Walked by a surprise meeting on the street, when I heard my Lord’s name mentioned: a woman prayed for sight for a man named David, next to his wife. I agreed with them and worshipped God, too.
The woman stated she asked Father God to lead her to the right street and this is why, because of their chance encounter! Praise the Lord! Let us all be ready to bring God’s glory to earth with miracles and signs.
“Greater love has no one than this that a Man lay down His life for His friends.” John 15:13

Galatians 3:26-29 “You are Christ’s”
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

How did Germany overcome the sick, evil, degrading, dehumanizing treatment, torture and putting to death of their fellow man during the Holocaust?
How does America love our fellow man and overcome our dehumanizing history of slavery of Africans? What monument can we erect representing justice, to say we acknowledge our sins and wicked ways and no more do we harm descendants of Africans? No more double standards of who receives mercy & honor.
“Honor all people.” 1 Peter 2:17
Thank you for Bishop T.D. Jakes’ speaking out on our history of slavery on TBN, and how to stand together and support Black and Brown people during this time.
“For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak.”
“‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”
My friends take such loving care of their older parents. I wish they’d let the rest of the country how to care for their elders. Other countries keep them at home and honor them similar to my friends in the US, and there’s no such thing as nursing homes.
Sadly, many older Americans died in nursing homes during the Covid 19 virus. There’s enough blame to go around, but is there a solution for the condition of our hearts?
“Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old.”
