Lord, “This, I Can Do!”

images

Lord, society wants me to accept abortion and pro-choice.  Even those who call themselves, “Children of God.”  How can I do this Lord, and my soul reach You, when my body is laid to rest?   Lord, I cannot.

Lord, society wants me to accept the teachings and beliefs of other religions, even those who deny You.  Lord, I cannot.

Lord, society wants me to accept sin because of their agenda’s and right’s.  Lord, I cannot.

Lord, society wants me to accept persecution, imprisonment, and even the death of Your children, for simply loving You.  Lord, I cannot.

Lord, society wants me to accept foul language, deceit,  hatred, and mockery of all which You taught to us.  Lord, I cannot.

Lord, society wants me to accept turning a deaf ear and blind eye, to the suffering, the disabled, the poor and the aged.  Even to accepting putting them to death as they are viewed as a costly burden and of no use to society anymore.  Lord, I cannot.

Lord, society wants me to accept the Catholic Church is the “Whore of Babylon,” “The bastardization of faith,”  and the “Pope is the Beast.”  Lord, I cannot.  

“You will be handed over by your parents, brothers, relatives, and friends, and they will put some of you to death.”

Lord, how do I live in this society?  How do I live in a society, which You lived in?  A society which Crucified You on a Cross, simply because You taught and gave love and forgiveness?

I get tired of this society, Lord.  I get tired of all the evil and wickedness, and I wonder if it will ever end? 

“How long will the wicked prevail, Lord?”

At times Lord, I think I cannot go on from the fear of what the future holds for Your children, in this nation?

How does one go on Lord, when surrounded by so much evil, deaths of millions of babies, and hatred?  When so many in a nation desire doing away with your children’s freedom to worship You?

How do I carry this cross Lord, day after day?  How do I carry this cross Lord and not give way to the temptations, fears and heaviness of it, thereby losing my life? 

How?

“You will be hated by all because of my name, but not a hair on your head will be destroyed.”

“By your perseverance you will secure your lives.”

Lord, “This I can do!”

Being Molested Took Away My Right to Life????

I have wondered what good could possibly come out of me being molested for four years?  Now I have it, and I thank God so much for it.

This past week I have read and even been told by “Christians” and those of the Catholic Church, that babies who have been born poor, been abused, and been born addicted to drugs, should have been aborted.  Thank you very much, “YOU BROOD OF VIPERS!”  Thank you for telling me because this happened to me, I had not right to life!!!

So in saying this you are telling me:

I never had the right to know and love my Dad, Mom, brother and sister.  I should have never of had the right to have my wonderful children, and enjoy my lovely grandchildren.  I never had the right to learn how to ride a horse, get an education, enjoy my friends, and share the worship of God with you.  I never had the right to take care of my Mom, before she died.

I never had the right to breathe God’s air, and be a part of His wonderful earth.  I never had the right to feel His love and mercy in my life, because according to you “I SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABORTED!”

Oh, and let us not forget my Mom who could have condemned her soul to hell.  But all of this is all right with you, as long as you can justify that abortion is okay?  You care so much, don’t you?

I was molested for four years from the ages of nine to thirteen.  When my therapist asked me how that felt I told her:

“It was like one day I was a beautiful little girl, with a pretty dress on and a bow in my hair of curls.  I was picking flowers in a field.  In this field of flowers there was a snake lying in wait for me, with his forked tongue going in and out of his mouth.  He coiled himself around me, and suffocated me.  When he uncoiled himself and I got up, my dress was dirty and tattered, my bow was gone, and my field of flowers was nothing but weeds.”

Yes, I was molested for four years.  To this day I suffer from the feeling of being suffocated in too close of quarters, because the weight of his body always “suffocated me.”

I made good decisions and bad ones during my life, because of this.

But let me tell you one thing:

I had the RIGHT TO LIFE!!!!  I did not deserve to be aborted, because something happened to me of which I had no control.  I did not deserve to be denied my “RIGHT TO LIFE” because I suffered as a child and most of my adult life, with flashbacks!

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THIS????

I did not deserve to have taken away from me:

MY RIGHT TO KNOW MY FAMILY, TO HAVE CHILDREN, AND GRANDCHILDREN.  MY RIGHT TO BE LOVED!

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT???

Don’t you dare try to defend your belief in abortion with a statement such as this to me!!!

YOU ARE NOW THAT SERPENT TO ME, THAT LAID IN MY FIELD OF FLOWERS, WAITING TO COIL YOURSELF AROUND ME, AND STICKING YOUR FORKED TONGUES IN AND OUT OF YOUR MOUTHS!

HOW DARE YOU SAY THINGS LIKE THIS TO THE MILLIONS OF CHILDREN AND ADULTS WHO ARE AND HAVE SUFFERED ABUSE!

MAY GOD FORGIVE YOU AND PRAY FOR ME THAT I CAN. 

IT IS A HELL OF A STATEMENT TO BE TOLD:

“I SHOULD HAVE NEVER OF BEEN BORN,” BECAUSE OF SOMETHING LIKE THIS.  ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE MY BROTHER’S AND SISTER’S IN CHRIST!

WHAT’S THE MATTER:

ARE YOU JUST TOO BUSY TO HELP TAKE CARE OF THOSE LIKE ME?  IT’S JUST EASIER FOR YOUR BUSY LIVES, IF WE HAD BEEN DESTROYED FROM THE MOMENT WE WERE CONCEIVED.

STAY AWAY FROM ME AND THOSE LIKE ME.  WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH PAIN AND SUFFERING IN OUR LIVES.

WE DO NOT NEED ANYMORE FROM YOU MOST:

“LOVING CHRISTIANS AND THOSE OF MY OWN CHURCH!’

Please Pray “THIS PRAYER” With Me Today For This Nation

This is the prayer of Azariah in the furnace.

Blessed are You, and praiseworthy O Lord, the God of our fathers, and glorious forever is Your name.

For You are just in all You have done; all Your deeds are faultless, all Your ways right, and all Your judgments proper.

For we have sinned and transgressed by departing from You, and we have done every kind of evil.

For Your name’s sake, do not deliver us up forever or make void Your covenant.

Do not take away Your mercy from us, for the sake of Abraham, Your beloved, Isaac Your servant, and Israel Your holy one,  to whom You promised to multiply their offspring like the stars of heaven, or the sand on the shore of the sea.

For we are reduced, O Lord, beyond any other nation, brought low everywhere in the world this day because of our sins. 

We have in our day no prince, prophet, or leader, no holocaust, sacrifice, oblation, or incense, no place to offer first fruits, to find favor with You.

But with contrite heart and humble spirit let us be received; as though it were holocausts of rams and bullocks, or thousand of fat lambs, so let our sacrifice [Jesus] be in Your presence today as we follow You unreservedly; for those who trust in You cannot be put to shame.

And now we follow You with our whole heart, we fear You and we pray to You.  + Amen

I ask all of you to remember “aborted babies,” today!  Hear their cries and screams in your hearts and souls, because God does.  Make no mistake about it, one day, He will be their justice!  Abortion is an “ABOMINATION” to God.

Before you push the button or pull the lever on the voting booth say,


“In Your Name Lord, I cast this vote!”

God Bless, SR

 

Lord, Direct My Heart Towards the Love of God

imagese98v3kk9Many times in my life, I have claimed my “heart” as my own.  It has followed it’s own directions and paths. 

It has done good and bad things. 

It has loved and been kind.  It has also, not loved and not been so kind.

My heart at times, has wanted the best and the worst for others. 

In my life my heart has been a heart “split in two.”  Half of it going in the Lord’s direction, and half of it going in my own direction.  Half of it being strong and half of it being weak.

Many times the endurance of my heart has wanted to give up and let go.  The struggle just seemed too much for me.

Today:

I give ALL of my heart to God.   I do so, that it may become a heart of peace, love, and charity to God and others always.   Following one path instead of many.

“May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the endurance of Christ.”

Letting our Feet, “Dance a Jig!”

The other day I was watching the movie about St. Therese.  One of the scenes is where her father, and the girls were in the living room.  The father was at the organ making music, and his girl’s were dancing.  One of the girls asked their father:

“Did you and Mama dance?”

Father’s reply:

“No, I never danced with your mother.  I wish I had.  I guess we were too pious.”  (The mother had died.)

My thoughts begin to drift to when we take our “piety” too far.  So far, that we will not do a simple dance.  I think all too often, many of us are so guilty of this.  How can we set an example to others regarding the “joys of Christ,” when we walk around in “gloom?”

St. Teresa of Avila spoke also of the “deadly seriousness” of Catholicism in many of her quotes.  Being “protected from a gloomy soul,” was one of those quotes.  I see this not only in some Catholics (including myself) but in those of different religions also.

I thought about the “Wedding at Cana.”  Jesus and the Blessed Mother were at a wedding! A Jewish wedding I am sure.  A wedding which we know had wine.  Music being played.  Toast being made to the bride and groom.  People dancing, laughing, and talking together. 

Sharing a fun filled day, yet these, I am sure, were very “pious people,” when it came to their religion and faith.  After all they were “Jews.”

We must remember, it was at this setting, Jesus “turned the water into wine.”

I think we can “overdo” piety.  I think we can “overdo” it so much, that it is actually does more harm to ourselves and others, than good.

I am not saying, “We do not need to be pious.”  Of course we do.  There are times and moments in our daily lives, we are called to be just “this.”

There are also times we are called to “dance.”  To let our “agenda’s” go, for the sake of breathing fresh air.  To laugh at a joke.  To have a great big ice cream cone once a week, even though we are going to have to eat celery for the rest of it.  To have humor in our lives, even in our spiritual lives. 

If we do not have balance in our lives with such, I am beginning to see how our “piety becomes a great big glop of vanity.”  We are going to miss out on so many things which could actually place a smile on our faces and in our hearts. 

We have to be willing to let go of some of the seriousness within us.   Most of all, we have to learn to laugh at ourselves.

God is a God of mercy, love, and compassion.  All of us have weaknesses, fears, and failures.  We cannot be so “pious,” that we let these things consume us to the point of detriment to our souls and the souls of others.

If we are “too busy,” we need to get a little “less busy.”  If we walk around daily with “fear” in our heart’s because of a sin or failure, we need to start trusting in the “forgiveness of the Cross.”  Most of all:

If we are walking around in nothing but “serious piety” and a “gloomy soul,”  we need to let our feet:

“Dance a Jig!”

Trust me:

Our “vain piety” will survive!”

Lord, If You Came to My House Today, How Would I Receive You?

zacchaeus2

Jesus is passing by me today, but I am stuck up in a tree. 

He sees me, calls me down and says:

“Come down quickly, for today I must stay at your house.”

How am I going to receive Him?

With a feeling of dread and unworthiness, because I am such a sinner?  A sinner who is afraid of  His condemnation?  Who is afraid because myself and others know I deserve it?

Or am I going to receive Him with:

“Joy?” 

Opening my heart, home, and all that I have to His love, for me?

And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man too [Zaccheus] is a descendant of Abraham.  For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost.”

Finally Figuring it Out!

I have often wondered how “Christians” could be “pro-choice” and call themselves a “Christian.”  I finally figured it out. 

If this post offends you, so be it.  I do not really care!  I am fighting for those who have no voice if they live or die.  They are called the “unborn baby in the womb.”  A human being, a baby.  Not a “blob of tissue.”  So here goes.

I read this on another blog by a self “professed Christian.”  I cannot even wrap my mind or heart around it, and I wonder if God can?

“There is a huge difference between pro-choice and pro-abortion.”

Really?  Pro-choice is the exact law which gives anyone the right to abort a baby.

“I am a Christian, pro-choice And pro-life, many of us are.”

Hmmm… I wonder if God’s view is the same on this?  See a “Christian” is a child of God, but guess what?  So is an unborn baby!  God sees them both as the same.  It does not matter if they are in the womb or walking the face of the earth!

“Most women find the idea of abortion abhorrent – yes, even those of us who want abortion to remain legal.”

So, this “Christian” finds “abortion abhorrent” but wants “abortion to remain legal.”   Hmmm, I wonder if that aborted baby finds it “abhorrent” and wants it “to remain legal?”  Especially after it has been burnt to death with salt, and it’s body parts ripped apart, and supposedly sold for profit?  Talk about a contradiction in terms???

“I just wanted you and your readers to know one can be Christian, pro-choice and pro-life.”

Now this one here got me!  Talk about the devil twisting God’s word in someone’s heart????  God never gave us the RIGHT to kill His children.  They are His, whether we like it or not!!!!  We have no RIGHT to deny them life in any form or fashion.  Again, pro-choice gives every single woman the right to kill “His” CHILD!  Whom He “Knitted in the Womb,” not us!

“I do not want the government making any decisions about “MY HEALTH AND MY BODY.”

Really?  It is okay though for a decision to be made about murdering an innocent baby!!!!  What about that baby’s “health and body?”  What about that baby’s “life?”   Oh, that is right isn’t it?  See it cannot see, hear, nor speak.  It is helpless against thoughts and actions such as this.  I guarantee you it feels the pain when it is being aborted!  It has no other choice but to die!  It is all about that “woman” and her “health” and her “body.”  She is not the one who is dying though, is she?  I wonder if their little heart’s ever scream, “Let me live!”

“I agree with Hillary that the choice needs to remain between a woman, her doctor and God.”

People do you honestly believe one is not going to answer for upholding a “belief such as this?”  Do you honestly believe when God has had His full of this, He is not going to stand up and stop it???  Do you honestly believe, when your belief is such as this, you are not going to be held accountable for the “slaughtering of the innocent????” 

Abortion is in the Bible. 

Thus says the Lord, “For three transgressions of the Ammonites, and for four I will not revoke the punishment; because they have ripped up pregnant women in Gilead, that they might enlarge their border. ”  (Get this whole entire Scripture?)

“So I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah, and it shall devour her strongholds, with shouting in the day of the battle, with a tempest in the day of the whirlwind; and their king shall go into exile, he and his princes together.”  Amos 1:13

So this is what we have to look forward to in this nation if not worse, if we do not quit “killing these babies!”

I have often wondered how Christians justify all of this to themselves.  Now I understand.  They twist God and His word, to suit what they want to believe!

Like I said, “I don’t really care if this offends you.”  Millions of slaughtered babies “offends the hell” out of me!  I just wish it did everyone else!

God Bless, SR
