Happy New Year and as Paul wrote to Timothy, “Grace, mercy and peace from GOD the FATHER and CHRIST JESUS our LORD”!
2 Corinthians 5:17 New King James Version (NKJV) 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
I haven’t been social much last few days. Wanted to just take a step back, forget about the news and all the “Talking Points” for a little and the weather here has been so great just wanted to get out and enjoy GOD’s handiwork for awhile. I really enjoyed and related to this mornings devotional. Don’t read everyday but most days and when I do of course GOD speaks to my heart! Check it out
“SHOW AND TELL”
“I’m NOT one to wear my faith on my sleeve. Christians can do a disservice to unbelievers by being obnoxious or judgmental.
I’m a chapel leader and have been since my second year in the minors.
People know where I I’m coming from with out my having to harp on it all the time. I know that the message of CHRIST offends because it calls sin sin and says we are all sinners.
There’s no way to soften the truth. It’s jarring and can alienate people until they begin to realize that it’s true.
My pushing it down everyone’s throat will not make it any easier for them to investigate what it’s all about.
I just tell people about GOD naturally, when opportunities arise or when I’m asked. It’s amazing how many people notice when you’re straight.
If your not a carouser, not a womanizer, not foul-mouthed, not a gossip, it get’s around!
We’re far from perfect. We fail. There are people who may think we are insincere or who think we’re judgmental.
I can’t defend myself against people who say I’m phony. Only my family, my true friends and I know who I really am inside. I’ll have to answer for that someday.
I can only do and be what I think GOD want’s me to do and be. I never want to embarrass HIM or bring HIM shame.”

I can relate to this, it just really speaks and encourages me and is how I feel. Remember GOD didn’t make us all pastor’s, evangelists so on. He made us all different, with different gifts and callings, our job is to be as faithful as we can to what HE’s called us to do and be.
As 2013 passes and 2014 begins there is a lot ahead of us. A couple of things I hope we all remember is what a few truly Conservative and bibles believing Christians did in 2013.
A handful of true Conservative with the backing of “The People” did some pretty amazing things if you think about and took a stand against “The Status Quo”, the establishment GOP and the Progressive movement that is dead set on the “Fundamental Chang of America” and the removal of GOD from our history, remembrance and country.
“The People” stood up, stood together and backed a man for his right to say in public the TRUTH of the bible. “The People” saw that it IS possible to take a stand against the progressive’s and the liberal GOD denying democrat party and the fewer then ( being generous here) 5% of the population that is hell bent on “The fundamental Change of America”.
2013 brought to light what a lot of Conservative had been warning about for years. The I.R.S scandal, Benghazi, the massive failure of the administrations foreign polices and more often then not siding with Americas enemy’s then her allies, N.S.A., election fraud the out right lying and miss guidance of the American people and of course Obamacare.
Let’s not forget the defining silence from this administration as Christian around the world are being purged from the earth and in this country being silenced and attacked by the very government it helped set up in the begging of this great country.
2014 is the year when we can start to take our country back. It will take years to fix what the Progressives and the most recently administration has done to this country but in 2014 we can start to finish what started in 2010 but has been paused because people believed the establishment GOP and the politicians that didn’t keep there promises to defend the Constitution and Conservative values.
“If we Christians banded together and took a stand, perhaps we wouldn’t be losing so much ground in what the media is calling the “cultural war.” However, it is not a cultural war—it is a religious war against Christians and the biblical truths we stand for. Some churches have fallen into the trap of being politically correct, under the disguise of tolerance.” Read more, Franklin Graham: Duck Dynasty and the Ducking Church
So, my hope and prayer for the new year is that people will remember, pray, stand together and start on the road to bring this country back to it’s former glory and the “Light on The Hill” status that set us apart from all others lead by GOD. There is a definite choice to be maid between the GOD denying Democrats led by the Progressive movement, the GOP establishment and RINO’s and the TRUE Conservatives and bible believing Americans with respect for all.
2 Timothy 1:7 New English Translation (NET) 7 “For God did not give us a Spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
GOD bless America and you.
