Obama Tripping

Friends in Arabia

Those who aren’t in the know, wonder why “The Man” cut a State visit short to India and took a flight to Arabia for a chat.

Perhaps there are some valid reasons for doing so, but one can’t help to believe it had something to do with raising the price of oil.

As Obama fights the development of oil resources here at home, it makes the increase in the price of a barrel of oil more likely.

We can be assured he indebted the U.S.A. to the Saudi Monarch in some way.

In any case we will be the last to know the real reason why.

Is anyone naïve enough to believe his blocking the Keystone project is about the environment??

The question girls need to ask the night before

A Foolish Girl
The question girls need to ask the night before

Tonight you're mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting treasure?
Or just a moment's pleasure?
Can I believe the magic of your sighs?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight with words unspoken
You say that I'm the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning sun?

I'd like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of?
So tell me now, and I won't ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

The answer is; probably not for the moment of passion has passed
He will love you again (temporally) when the cycle of passion returns
Tis the price you pay for temporary love

Every so often I realize that I talk too much, most of it is to myself and while it can be encouraging, sometimes it borders on the ridiculous.  

I believe there is a distinction between thinking and talking to myself.

Thinking has the quality of problem solving, evaluation, and decision based on known and projected facts. Talking does some of the above but includes the emotions and produces a plethora, what ifs, desire and fantasy. It isn’t always based on “sound thinking” but accommodates wistful ideas.  

Because of this phenomenon, the faith of the believer often suffers.  

There is a story in the Old Testament, where Jacob gave a coat of many colors to his son Joseph.  And like this coat, faith has many colors or facets. It may be; faith in, faith for, faith of and faith which, all these kinds of faith are for our use and benefit.

Faith in, is the core of the Christian life and experience. It is the entrance into eternal life and relationship with ALMIGHTY GOD. Your faith will be under attack each and every day of your Christian walk. It is the umbilical chord that connects you to GOD, through which you receive all your sustenance.

At times these attacks will make you feel like you are in a vice and you are being squeezed so severe that you can’t survive it. They will come from every source and will continually test you at every level.

The main thing to do is to firmly establish, once for all and forever your faith in GOD and refuse to allow any thing to shake you from that position. Do not let temporal education (that is always changing) riches, poverty, health, sickness, disappointments, relationships, failures or any other thing, in any way affect or weaken this faith in HIM.

Paul said it like this in Romans 8:33-39

Romans 8:35 Who can separate us from Christ's love? Can trouble, distress, persecution, hunger, nakedness, danger, or a sword?  36 As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all day long. We are thought of as sheep to be slaughtered."  37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through the one who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,  39 nor anything above, nor anything below, nor anything else in all creation can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Under no circumstances, ever - - let the battle be fought about your faith in GOD, keep it separate from that.   Let the battles be about defeating satanic forces and whether you win or lose a particular fight you still are firmly fixed in faith, in GOD.

Do not let self talk be a player in your faith in GOD for it changes with the wind and circumstances, but our GOD stands firm and unchangeable.

Last thought, we are created in his image. Let us be firm and unchangeable even as HE is in our faith.

This is not a true story - -
But It certainly could be true to some families.

Un-Wiser - Non Wiser - Bud wiser

“Daddy, Daddy give me a drink of that stuff you’re drinking.”

“Naw son this stuff is too hard for you but get a bottle of beer out of the fridge that is your speed.”

“Okay, Daddy this is good stuff.”

“Yeah son you can drink that stuff all night and still not get drunk.”

“When can I have some of the hard stuff daddy?”

“Well now son, let me tell you something and don’t you ever forget it. Stick to the beer and you will never go down the road I’m on.”

“This hard stuff had lost its punch and I have to drink a jug full of it to get any kind of a buzz now-a-days.”

“Maybe you’re right Daddy I’ll stick to beer and not go ape over the hard stuff.”

That was many years ago and Daddy is gone where the hard drinkers go but the preacher said some nice thing about him at his funeral.

As for me I have stayed the course and stuck with the Bud, you know the “wiser.”

As far as I can tell it hasn’t affected me like the Jim Daniels did to dad.

I tell my kids to lay off the stuff but I think they do a few cans a week behind my back.

I used to get by with a six-pack each night but am now up to a twelve-er.

My supplier suggested I buy several cases at a time and he could have the delivery truck just drop them off at my house so that is what I do now.  I have done this for twenty-five years now.

My wife and kids are gone.
She claims I beat her up several times but I can’t remember doing it. It isn’t like I was on the hard stuff. After all “It’s only beer.”

I have been downing a couple big cans before work for I can run those machines with my eyes closed.  It wasn’t my fault the main line machine broke down. Even so the boss misread the whole thing and fired me.

He said my drinking was interfering with my work. I tried to explain its only beer. He said I had earned a pension and he wouldn’t contest me getting it. He talked like that pension was going to keep me. That isn’t hardly enough to pay my beer bill.

Another thing, now the wife is asking for child support and I don’t have it because I have to pay my beer bill or be cut off.  Things don’t look good for the future…

For food I play the mission circuit and get a bed there on occasion. They are trying to take my pension now for child support and if I don’t sign it over to her I go to jail.  If that happens I would lose the three friends I have left… Bud-wiser, Non-wiser, and Un-wiser.

God is Accustomed to My Face !!

In “My fair lady” the song “Accustomed to his face” has the lines “Are second nature to me now, like breathing out and breathing in.

When your baby is first born you look adoringly at every bit of them. Then as time goes by you don’t have the same urge to focus on them for you are so familiar with them. They grow up and only when they are not there, do you miss them.

One custom that every mom and/or dad should do is to take their children’s face in your hands and look into their eyes for a few seconds, this moment of bonding will last for a lifetime.

Being accustomed to a person at times can cause a relationship to become “a run of the mill” relational but with a faded intimacy. This is not to say that there is anything wrong with being comfortable with one another; in other words; be able to ”let your hair down.” Doing marriage people do things they wouldn’t have done before the wedding day.

As I was thinking (musing) about some of the previous posts I wrote concerning the indwelling Holy Spirit, I began to wonder if I had become to accustom to the presence of Him to the point of taking His presence for granted? 
Was being too accustomed to His presence lessened His impact on His indwelling in me.  There is a difference in being comfortable with someone and an acceptance with indifference of their personage.

I recalled the time when I was first born again, when His Spirit only was convicting me of my sin and then the difference when He came in to stay, how real His presence was.  It is a realty I can’t afford to lose and so I must not let my lethargic nature dull my spiritual sense of his presence.

Ephesians.4:30 And do not bring sorrow to God's Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption.

Charles Finney; You see why so many persons often pray for the influences of the Holy Spirit and yet do not receive his influences. It may be and doubtless often is because they have grieved him entirely away.

Your entire spiritual life depends upon the ministry of the Holy Spirit’s interaction within you and if He is prevented by your rejecting His leading then there is little more He can do but withdraw until you as Finney says; “Let us see wherein we have been and are grieving the Holy Spirit.

And now let us all go down upon our knees, and confess our infinite guilt, in having, in so many ways and for so long a time, grieved the Holy Spirit.”
