Update to Confederate Flag Controversy

Within the last couple days of my posting, Warner Bros said that they are not removing the Confederate Flag from the General Lee. They stated that the previous report was not true.

Now as for how I feel about this, it is up to the state’s to decide what they want to do.

And this story I am sticking to it.

Marriage 

Here’s my story:
This week the highest court in the nation voted to make same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states. 

I may be old fashion but I support only one kind of marriage and that is between a man and a woman. I will however continue to love and be friends with those who commit to this relationship. I do not judge nor will I put down those who partake in same sex relations. But rather love them unconditionally according to what the Lord says. God would want us to love them and not their sin.

In Ephesians 5:31 Paul writes— For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and will be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. That is the definition of marriage–between one man and one woman.

My hope for those who are committed to a same-sex relationship is that you will be loved by our Lord and that He loves you as a sinner and not for the sin.

That’s my story and I am sticking to it.

Update to “Charleston SC Shooting” post

Here is my story:

As you know I posted a short blog about what happened in Charleston, SC at a black church.

I want to post an update to that blog.

Charles Cotton, a representative from the NRA(National Rifle Association) has blasted its Pastor(now deceased) and its victims for what he says is his position as a Pastor and a State Senator from S. Carolina is to blame for the slaughter of those 8 members.

HOLD ON RIGHT THERE MR COTTON!!!

YOU of ALL people and the NRA are to BLAME for the mess we are in. Your “left-sided Liberal” ways are to blame for this mess. You want gun control so bad, you are willing to slaughter those who believe that guns are not the way.

I am proud to say that I am against such gun-control laws. Guns will not solve everything.

Again I will say it in this post, it is the power of God, through the trust and Faith of Jesus, that will resolve differences, racial tension and other negative outcomes, if only we trust Him.

 

That’s my story and I am sticking to it.

Charleston S.C. shootings

Here’s my quick story:

Charleston S.C. had the worst shooting to ever occur this past week, in…of all places…a church. 9 innocent lives lost and one gunman who has some very serious mental illness.

Here is my take on this–
The President of the USA, the NRA and all the other “leftist” are wanting gun control. Personally, gun control WILL NOT solve everything. Only the love of Jesus will control it, if we just give our lives to Him. Eventually GOOD will win over EVIL, make no mistake about it.

And even the victims families are forgiving the gunman for this travesty. If you want to live by faith and not by sight, look to the families who have forgiven him. They are an example of faith in Jesus Christ. We need to live like that.

That’s my short story, and I am sticking to it.

Depression

Here’s my story:

Recently, we have seen stories of celebrities coming out telling of their battle of depression………Robin Williams, who had this, committed suicide. Now the latest is Wayne Brady.

I am coming out to tell you that, yes, even me, has and is still battling depression. It is a hard mental disease to shake off. It takes years to win the battle. There are days that I am “happy-go-lucky” and other days that I am “don’t-bother-me”. I had a breakdown as recent as a couple years ago when all the stress came down on me after my grandmother, Bess, passed away. I balled like a baby wondering, “Why me?”

You see, it is an ongoing disease that will never go away, unless you do something about it. That is why I am on medication to help curb “breakdowns” like I had a couple years ago. Sometimes after the breakdown, you have to “suck it up” and move on and not let it happen again. The winter months are going to be hard again this year as the days are shorter and the temperatures are colder. Just pray that I continue down the road to recovery and improve day by day. With medication, prayers and help from the Good Lord I will make it.

That’s my story and I am sticking to it.

Depression-Not a fun thing

With the recent passing of Comedian Robin Williams from an apparant suicide from his bout with depression, the subject of Depression has cropped up, revealing its ugly head.
Depression is not a fun thing, nor is the fact of suicide. I am proud to say that I am a survivor of suicide.

Some people have ridiculed Robin Williams as a coward or selfish killing himself. I am here to say that those people need to look at their own hearts and minds and look at the real reason why suicide happened.

For me, it was the death of my mother that prompted me to drive myself to depression later in my teen years. Also being pushed and bullied by classmates led me down to that road. As I said earlier, Depression is not a fun thing and neither is suicide.
I Tried suicide by suffocating or hanging. I came close several times but something told me DON’T. That something was the grace of God. God saw something in me that I can be used to witness to His glory. Through salvation only found in Jesus, I can say that I am a survivor of deepression and suicide. Now do I get depressed on occasion? Yes, but not as bad as back then. Do I think of suicide from time to time? Yea, but medication and a talk with God and my family curves me from that road.

If you or someone you know needs some help, be sure to talk to a Christian counselor, family member or friend and tell them you are thinking of ending your life by suicide.
There are very good resources to use like “Resources For Living”.

Please, get help!!!! That’s my plea to you.
Thank you.

That’s my story and I am sticking to it.

Losing a loved one

Here’s my story-

July 1st was the 35th Anniversary of the passing of my Mom. It has been a tough week for me, thinking of her. I was only 8 years old when my Mom passed away from Pneumonia(both lungs). Me and my sister was totally devastated when Dad came in to tell us.

She was only 27 years old. I know one day I will get to see her again at the gates of Heaven. First I want to get a hug from the Lord then that big hug from my mom. Can’t wait.

This also has been a tough week for a couple families that I know. Just over a month ago the families were united by two people who fell in love in college and now their love were witnessed in their marriage.

Now the two families are now in mourning as one of the two who were married has passed away and is joining Jesus in Heaven, suffering no more.

(Names are not going to be mentioned in this post)

When the couple came back from their honeymoon, the gentleman was feeling not too good. So they went to a doctor to get some tests to find out why he was not feeling well. Turns out he needed emergency surgery on his skull due to a clot. After surgery, his brain swelled and was put in to an induced coma. They found thru those tests that he had Lupus.

What is Lupus?

The Mayo Clinic has info via this link–Lupus–Definition, Symptom…..etc

On July 6, 2014 after considering all options, the wife and families made the tearful decision to take her husband off life-support and make his way to his heavenly home. He was a Christian.

When we lose loved ones usually it takes days, weeks, months or even years to get back to “normal” life, others just give up. I believe that God has a plan for the families involved and what that plan is, I do not know.

The only thing we can do is to pray over them that they will adhere to the plan that the Lord has laid before them. As an old saying goes, “God Will NEVER Give You More Than You Can Handle” and that is so true.

That’s My Story and I Am Sticking To It.
