We Cannot Let This Election Be Stolen!

“We cannot let this election be stolen – we need to be loud, bold, and persistent. We need to contact the legislators in Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia. We need to contact them all and let them feel the heat. These Republican legislators are afraid of the Democrats, afraid of the mob. But it’s not Democrats who put them in office. It’s Republicans and just as Republican voters put them into office, they can kick them right back out again.”

Patriots, True Americans, Don’t Fret Because of the Evildoers

Anti-Terrorists Script (Domestic & Global)
Psalm 37[a]
Of David.

1
Do not fret because of those who are evil
or be envious of those who do wrong;
2
for like the grass they will soon wither,
like green plants they will soon die away.

3
Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4
Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

5
Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:
6
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun.

7
Be still before the Lord
and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.

8
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
do not fret—it leads only to evil.
9
For those who are evil will be destroyed,
but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

10
A little while, and the wicked will be no more;
though you look for them, they will not be found.
11
But the meek will inherit the land
and enjoy peace and prosperity.

12
The wicked plot against the righteous
and gnash their teeth at them;
13
but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
for he knows their day is coming.

14
The wicked draw the sword
and bend the bow
to bring down the poor and needy,
to slay those whose ways are upright.
15
But their swords will pierce their own hearts,
and their bows will be broken.

16
Better the little that the righteous have
than the wealth of many wicked;
17
for the power of the wicked will be broken,
but the Lord upholds the righteous.

18
The blameless spend their days under the Lord’s care,
and their inheritance will endure forever.
19
In times of disaster they will not wither;
in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.

20
But the wicked will perish:
Though the Lord’s enemies are like the flowers of the field,
they will be consumed, they will go up in smoke.

21
The wicked borrow and do not repay,
but the righteous give generously;
22
those the Lord blesses will inherit the land,
but those He curses will be destroyed.

23
The Lord makes firm the steps
of the one who delights in Him;
24
though he may stumble, he will not fall,
for the Lord upholds him with His hand.

25
I was young and now I am old,
yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken
or their children begging bread.
26
They are always generous and lend freely;
their children will be a blessing.[b]

27
Turn from evil and do good;
then you will dwell in the land forever.
28
For the Lord loves the just
and will not forsake his faithful ones.

Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed[c];
the offspring of the wicked will perish.
29
The righteous will inherit the land
and dwell in it forever.

30
The mouths of the righteous utter wisdom,
and their tongues speak what is just.
31
The law of their God is in their hearts;
their feet do not slip.

32
The wicked lie in wait for the righteous,
intent on putting them to death;
33
but the Lord will not leave them in the power of the wicked
or let them be condemned when brought to trial.

34
Hope in the Lord
and keep his way.
He will exalt you to inherit the land;
when the wicked are destroyed, you will see it.

35
I have seen a wicked and ruthless man
flourishing like a luxuriant native tree,
36
but he soon passed away and was no more;
though I looked for him, he could not be found.

37
Consider the blameless, observe the upright;
a future awaits those who seek peace.[d]
38
But all sinners will be destroyed;
there will be no future[e] for the wicked.

39
The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;
he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
40
The Lord helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.

~ Psalm 37: 1 – 40
NIV

Wrong Believing & Right Believing

“If we’re honest, we all have some measure of wrong believing in our lives.
If you don’t believe this, all you need to do is ask yourself,
‘Have I often felt anxious, worried, or fearful that the worst
would happen to me and my loved ones?

What you believe is very powerful. If you have toxic emotions of fear, guilt and depression,
it is because you have wrong thinking, and you have wrong thinking because of wrong believing.

Wrong believing puts people in a prison. Even though there are no physical shackles,
wrong believing causes its inmates to behave as though they were incarcerated in a
maximum-security penitentiary. What you believe is powerful.


If you can change what you believe, you can change your life!”
~ Joseph Prince,
Author, Co-Founder & Pastor – New Creation Church

Failing Yourself

That Color on Purpose

“People are valuable regardless of the color of their skin.
You can be open about it and talk about it. You don’t have to pretend that you are not different,
but you can learn about those differences God didn’t say, ‘Ooh, I made you brown on accident.’
He made them that color on purpose. And if you do not have friendships with other races,
then ask God to bring you some. He will.”

Your Biggest Success in Life

True Faith: God is Not Afraid of Our Questions

“God is not afraid of our inquiries. The question we must ask ourselves is whether we are we afraid of His.
If questioning exposes truth, let us question. A faith that is threatened by doctrinal inquiries and evaluation of certain tenets is no faith at all.
A faith that blindly demands belief subjugates the very inquisitive soul that God gave us.
What is more, it disqualifies itself from being a faith and more accurately falls under the category of a cult.
True faith welcomes questions; false faiths discourage and prohibit them.”

Sometimes I’m hiding away from the madness around me

All things are possible; I can mount on wings like eagles’ and soar.
When I call on Jesus, mountains are gonna fall
’cause He’ll move Heaven and Earth to come rescue me, when I call.
Weary brother, broken daughter,
Widowed, widowed lover, you’re not alone.
If you’re tired and scared of the madness around you,
If you can’t find the strength to carry on
call Him in the morning, in the afternoon time
late in the evening. He’ll be there.
When your heart is broken,
And you feel discouraged,
You can just remember that He said
He’ll be there.”

Glory & Imperfections

“There are two, basic
motivating forces:
Fear & Love.
When we are afraid,
we pull back from life.
When we are in love,
we open to all that life has to offer

We need to learn to love ourselves first,
in all our glory and our imperfections.
If we cannot love ourselves,
we cannot fully open to our ability to love others
or our potential to create.
Evolution and all hopes for a better world
rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision
of people who embrace life.”
