We Shall Over Come



Have we given up on spirituality? Have we as men made in the image and likeness of God tossed aside hope, kindness, good deeds, and hard work for a better world and future?
Spirituality: an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of his/her being; or the deepest values and meanings by which people live.
The world is a cycle, what was is bound to be again. Except in this twenty first century life is scarier than ever before. Men are viler, less tender, less loving to one another, a wicked and treacherous generation. Young men do not set out to make their family proud anymore.
They are not thinking of life, responsibilities, school and learning wisdom. On their minds are sexual immoral thoughts, or how will they get that money fast. Men and women alike are thieves, murderers, and back stabbers, indecent and unjust.
Young ladies are selling a pound of their flesh (bodies) for gains. They are having babies at young ages, even “brawling” like men with each other.
Men are killing children and women, due to differences of beliefs and opinions. Separation of the family is on the rise. We have turned on each other like animals in the wild. Idols are what we worship in this decade (such as cars, money, sex, self-indulgences, and all means of materials).
The importance of the spiritual life does not seem as significant to many anymore. Be careful of Babylon, it can pull you away from the Almighty. The bible does say that in the last days the heart of many will be cold.
Brothers and sisters (I am not speaking only to Christians) that is why we need to pray for each other. Work out our differences; love one another as Jesus intended for us to do. Love your neighbor as yourself and send a prayer through the clouds to heaven for your enemies. Jesus said you should turn the other cheek. Revenge and a heart full of hatred will get you no glory in the end. I am pleading with you today to take refuge in Christ. He died for all, come to Him with all your faults, and He will mend you and give you rest in His bosom.
2 Timothy 3:1-9 (NIV) but mark this: there will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. Having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them. They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evils desires. Always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth. Just as Jannes and jambres opposed Moses, so also these men oppose the truth- men of depraved minds, who as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far, because as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.
 This is our future, how do you feel looking at the future? When I looked at these images I cried "this could be my children or yours one day". Pray for the children of this world if nothing else. These images are from the atlantic.com and  world street children news.
