Dave those are encouraging words and I also feel for what you have been through, yeah the feeling of turning your own in is so bad, yet it has to be done ... I don't know how I could have endured the thought of some bikers running off with my grand kids, and finding the pram off a cliff ... only God can hold a person up while going through such an ordeal ... much love back for my brother in Christ Jesus.
this sermon hit the spot, Don Green is blessed of God and I believe God moved to have it posted at such a time.

I'm the exception that proves the rule ... 5th child of 12 and that went horribly wrong ... had four myself and that is no better ...
I have been praying for all of you and for deliverance from my situation and finally called the police on my son, and God used the police to break the terror and abuse cycle, I'm still sick at heart for doing it, yet feel better that it has stopped, still having panic attacks about the past abuse, (post traumatic, still scared it will happen again) I will try my level best to give it up to Jesus, let go and let God heal me.
wishing all of you well, may God Bless you and keep all of you in His tender mercies as well.
Great Sermon! I think our cats love us, you are right, God created them for us to take care of them, Adam named them, Proverbs 12:10 A righteous man has regard for the life of his animal,
my cat story is this ... I saved a red tabby kitten in a blizzard, I thought it was a chunk of ice and went to kick it out of the way of the sidewalk but it ran before I could put a foot to it, I grabbed it quick and low and behold it was a kitten with its whiskers cut off, someone did this kitten wrong, I noticed it had a lung infection when I brought it home and named it Razzmick cause of the way it breathed, it survived and became the best cat I ever saw, it was just like a dog~! it would walk with me to the market and wait for me outside till I got done shopping and walk with me home.
My heart break was when I had to leave town for a week and left it with my friends and when I got back it was gone ... gone forever, the best cat ever and it was gone, I was so sad and looked everywhere, every time I saw a red cat I ran up to it and checked to see if it was Razzmick... I never got over that and never got another cat ...
thank you again Mourner, I really wish we were in person chopping tomatoes and talking, what a treat that would be~! thank you for all your kind counsel, you have a way with giving sisterly succor, God Bless you.
Christopher,I'm sorry to have mistaken your comment, please forgive me
It's not all about me, and if anyone else has things they would like to share, misery in life they need to speak about and prayer requests please~! let us know, all are welcome. just don't let it be a political thing unless it's directly affecting your ability to live life, we are speaking to personal tribulation, May god keep us all in His tender mercies.
Dave thank you for your kind words and prayers, you too are a top bloke always remember that I'm praying for you too.
Christopher, I had no idea you were in so much pain, I look forward to your and Dave's and well basically, everyone's posts because they are edifying and cheerful, all of us will hang in there because God will sustain us if we have faith that He will.
May God keep us from falling into hopelessness and despair, Bless us and bring us to happier days in this life, may we see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. lets keep praying for each other and like Lurker said, keep posting, keep supporting each other, God Bless you Lurker and Mourner your support is so welcome and needed.
God Bless you Mourner, Lurker, and Penned, for I woke up crying and troubled and logged on to find all of your kind words, comforting scripture references, well wishes, and prayers.
I agree Youtube "teachers" lead people in all the wrong ways, and I have been avoiding them. I will make an effort to not fret, for I fret so much, mostly I worry that they will kill me, I question if my husband does nothing to help me and defends them, am I allowed to leave him and become a grass widow? and even if I left how would I survive having no job or family or money and poor health?
I need to wait on God, cast my cares on the Lord, trust Him. You have no idea of how much your words (all of you) cheer me and give me strength, words can't describe, I can only thank you and beg God to Bless you also.
I find humor has helped me too, but the problem is that some days I can find nothing to laugh about and the daily news is so distressing, so when I log on and find safe humor here it's great
wow, Christopher, I posted and then saw your comments, so wonderful, so hopeful, thank you and God Bless, if I didn't edit I would have no way to let you know your encouraging words were read and appreciated too~!
I have had dissociative disorder since I near drowned as a kid, and then My doctor had me tested for dementia about 15 years ago, I had lost my medical insurance and don't have a Doctor now, save for emergency room visits, one where I passed out and fell headfirst down a staircase, and extreme digestive disorder where I could not be "treated and streeted" I have developed a tremor in my right hand and feel the beginning of sundowning I am in hyper vigilance mode about my son upstairs, he likes to come down and threaten to beat me and smashes my property, as well as my two daughters, he has hooked up with a fellow drug abusing girlfriend who is on methadone who likes to scream at me, she has just given birth to my granddaughter who was born methadone addicted, my husband is of no help, he watches them do this and won't raise a finger to stop them ...
yes sometimes I have a difficult time believing God is not wroth with me every day,sometimes my faith feels so weak, then I remember Luke 16:20 and know that some of us were chosen to live these lives, I feel shattered and scattered, and ... I'm still drawing a blank on the posting you speak of, and again I beg of you please forgive me and thank you for the comforting scripture verses, God Bless, I need sleep, till tomorrow.

Mourner, For the life of me I can't remember our last conversation, I am having memory problems and wish I could remember, I have been in a state of panic nearing hysteria and have to take time to calm myself down and think, sometimes I forget how the Lords Prayer goes, not sure if it's panic or what.
Psalm 34: 17-19 17. The righteous cry, and the LORD hears And delivers them out of all their troubles. 18. The LORD is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit. 19. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them all
Thank you Mourner for the insightful reply, I beg of you forgiveness for the way I acted, I started to flounder spiritually and could not tell you where my head was at, your words are edifying and encouraging, we are all a work in progress, I still pray for everyone here no matter how I come across, I really do care about you all, and intend to keep the Faith and struggle through the tough learning times, God Bless you and keep you in His tender mercies forever.
Thank You Dave, I'm hoping that with this most recent setback in health that I would grow up, before I felt like my spiritual age was at belligerent teenager and I was sure God was mad at me for my behavior and withdrew from posting here figuring that I wasn't doing any thing right ... so God Bless you and any that said a few words on my behalf that I would endure and reap a spiritual benefit of growth.

The secular news media played it up a lot and focused especially on how wonderful the church was in extending forgiveness to the shooter. I didn't see that reported in SA News; I wonder why.
why thank you for the opening ... i have heard how the black lives matter people say they NEVER hear about cops killing white people ... well they don't live up north ... our police have shot an otherwise murdered so many ... here is Ben's story ... 33 Bullets: The Story of Ben Sonnenberg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vgW3eAWIqc
