Chill Out

Whew. Our world, society, and the issues around us have me spinning. Until a few days ago really trying to grasp on to something steady.

My little world is most certainly being effected. I'm seeing family members of my blood relatives and my Christian family standing on opposing sides. Both sides making valid points. Our media fueling the tearing down of any unity we have. Red, yellow, black, white, blue.... Hilary or Trump.

Frankly it is too much. In my own personal opinion Facebook is becoming a breading ground for hurt, disapointment, and anger. A place where we can freely feel brave behind a computer and bash something or somebody without thought of "I'm going to see this person face to face tomorrow"


The hypocrisy of our leaders or future leaders makes me sick.

What can I do? I'm a Geargia preach that is now an East Tennessean. A SAHM. No political background. No platform (so to speak).

But I have this blog, I have my faith.

To be completely honest with you this world scares me. The fear of no control to stop this world becoming darker and darker. Less morals. Less respect.

Those feelings could overwhelm me, you, anyone...

But... BUT

I serve a great big God! A God who is greater than any election.

I serve a God who raises people from the dead. A God who heals. A God who opens wombs. A God who promises me hope and an eternal life with him.

A God who is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Nothing comes as a surprise to God.

I know I can rest in him!

No matter the circumstance, and I have faced some dark times, his words ring true in my heart

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. -1 John 4:4


The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom shall I be afraid? - Psalms 27:1


Rest easy my friends! God has got us! 

And above all remember what the word says 

Love God with all your heart, strength, mind, and soul. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. (Luke 10:27)

  1. I think on November 1st, I am boycotting Facebook for a week. It will be full of hate and arguments. I want this election over!! LOL! Candidates can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but they cannot fool God none of the time. I am going to pray that week before election day and try to fast some meals too. I am reminded of a book I read once on the Civil War. Families were divided with hate and furry then finally fighting and killing their very own. We need God back in our country quickly! Good post babe, don't worry we are strong, we are Christians, and we know who is in control! I love you, grams

  2. Awe, you are on my short list of people I still like reading about on Facebook. Ugh. You are always inspiring and hopeful. Beautifully written post. Countries and governments may come and go, but God is the same yesterday, today, and forever! Love you!
