The Lord’s Saving Grace: Our Ways Are Not His Ways

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. – Isaiah 55:8-9

Taking the road to the narrow gate of heaven is not easy.  We must walk this road alone, no one can do this for us.

We are naked and afraid, not knowing exactly how to find heaven nor what to say or do in forgiveness of our sins; knowing that Christ somehow is involved. Continue reading

Finding The Narrow Gate

Enter by the narrow gate.  For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.  – Matthew 7:13

John MacArthur’s sermon today was taken from Matthew 7:13-27; how to enter through the narrow gate.

He said that the narrow gate is narrow because only one person can go through it at a time.  We must go alone as individual persons.  We cannot go as a group being dragged along with others.   Continue reading

A Homeless Industrial Society?

my-own-private-studiho-1210324-639x961So I was writing on my other site,  Christianhope.net, where I’ve turned a corner about how I will use the site: treating drug addiction.

As I have watched a youtuber develop a message where he presents interviewing and factual content, giving a real life view in documentary style about the homeless issue, I feel I have the skills to be a voice that addresses the problem. Continue reading

Here’s a great service in case you did not go to church today, for whatever reason.  John MacArthur is one of my pastoral mainstays; I have learned so much from his sermons.  I highly recommend him as someone to learn the bible from since he is so good at providing such in-depth messages.  I hope you will watch him on his Grace To You ministry site where he has all his broadcasts saved.

Thoughts On Not Working In Mental Health-Lake Hills GreenBelt Park Bellevue WA

Here’s a video I did while walking in a park while I sorted out my thoughts about not working in the mental health field.  I did this video over a year ago while working on my thoughts about God who is managing my life.  I turn to him every day – I live a simple life but I do not know where he is taking me – through hills and dales and training me.

Students Having To Become Homeless So They Can Pay For College: Pray

homeless-3301347_640The internet is full of videos about the homeless and about drug addiction.  Since this is a growing problem and is at a crisis already, more people should speak out about the homeless problem which is not only mentally ill people and drug addiction, but students living in cars (or tents) because of the high cost of housing.

Doing Taxes And Being Disciplined With Our Budgets

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us – yes, establish the work of our hands. – Psalm 90:17

You may already know that taxes are due to be post-marked no later than Monday, April 15th, to be on time, otherwise request an extension.  I did my taxes but will have to mail them on Monday morning, after I get to work where I will print them off to mail them.  Some of you may have been able to file your taxes online; that’s wonderful, but for some reason mine wouldn’t go through to be filed online, hence I must mail them in.

Addiction To Heroin Should Be Treated As A Serious Mental Illness: Make Mandatory Treatment A Requirement

addict-2713620_640My concern with homelessness is that most people are addicted to some form of alcohol or drugs, or both.  Many videos I have watched on homelessness report that a growing addiction of the homeless is to fentanyl, an opiate that is 50 times stronger than heroin where the addicted must use in order to keep from feeling sick much more often than if they were on heroin.  Continue reading
