Another Day, Another Storm

We had a severe thunderstorm warning here today. There was a possibility of tornadoes, again. The wind got up and it rained a bit.

The storm passed to one side of our location.

On the plus side the new weather radio worked like a charm.

I’ve mentioned on here before about the tornado that passed over our home last year. I get nervous when we have severe weather. It’s just a little bit of PTSD from the aforementioned storm last year.

I’ve gotten better. I’m prepared for what might happen. And that’s what I can do.

Because, in reality, there isn’t a thing I can do about the storm itself. I have no control. I’m just a man.

I can pray.

I can trust God to get me through them.

To protect my home and my family. And to help us through what comes next.

And that’s all there is.

Faith.

That’s it. That’s the post.

Calmed Before The Storm

We’re about to have some severe weather here in the southeastern United States. I have been nervous about storms since last year when a tornado passed over (thank God) our home.

This morning I’m stressing out about the storms coming driving to work and I’m thinking.

I read that you don’t pray for God to stop the storm, you pray for him to help you get through the storm.

And then in my head pops, β€œSufficient for the day are it’s own troubles.” I can’t remember chapter and verse, but that’s Bible. It wasn’t just a thought. It was like it was spoken to me but I could only hear it in my head.

Y’all, this tingle hit the back of my head and ran down my spine and I can only describe it as something touched me. I’m concerned about the storms coming, but I have a calm that has just descended on me.

I think He spoke to me and comforted me this morning.

It’s the only way I can describe it.

It was spiritual.

Prayers for our area are welcome.

That’s it. That’s the post.

I don’t know what may happen in the next couple of days, do we ever? I may not be able to post.

But then, anything could happen at any time. I could die today in an accident. And there wouldn’t be anything marking my passing here in this blog. It would be another blog that just stopped.

And that’s not this blog. I post every day. I’ll be back. Unless I can’t come back at all.

Just had to get that bit outta my head.

Hate

I was looking at something a friend responded to today on Twitter. Some guy was asking how to handle a situation with his twelve year old. The child didn’t like their given name and instead wanted to be called Ace. They wanted to change their name. Legally.

Well, be a parent. If the child wants to be called that as a nickname, sure. Bit no on the legal change. They’re twelve. You’re a parent not a best friend. As a matter of fact, if you’re looking to Twitter for parenting advice, maybe you shouldn’t be taking care of children.

It amazes me that someone would do that. So I clicked on the profile and I found the problem.

Screenshot follows.

That’s a lot of hate. I don’t know for sure if this guy has ever met POTUS. But my first question is how can you hate someone so vehemently that you don’t know? How can you hate an entire group of people that you don’t know? What drives a heart like that?

I often say that both sides of our political system force me to the middle. It’s a circus, and I’m not their clown. But I can’t hate. I can think a lot of things. But I cannot bring myself to hate.

Hate consumes the heart and mind. It takes over your life.

In looking to the Bible about hate I found this:

β€œThere are six things the Lord hatesβ€” no, seven things he detests: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a false witness who pours out lies, a person who sows discord in a family.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭6:16-19‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Hate is becoming very popular in Newmerica. It’s the order of the day.

Better to spend your time making the world better around you.

Watch out for family, friends, and those who would do right by you.

Ignore the haters and fools.

Faith

I’m not ashamed to say I’m a Christian. I pray every day. I read my bible. I go to church.

I’m scared of few things. But one thing I am scared of is big storms. Lightning terrifies me.

I always say a prayer and ask the Lord to watch over my house and family during storms.

Last night He did just that.

Graveyard wall. Buffalo Baptist Church, Kershaw, SC.

The graveyard wall at my old church here in the neighborhood took a hit. It got busted up pretty bad. There’s more damage than is shown in the picture but that’s not what this is about.

Prayers are answered all the time. It might not be what you want, but it’s always exactly what you need.
