You just never know what’s coming next your way and what you learn from it. I’ve had such a …… Confined way of living. When I was young, I was in a confined space. Then when I got older, I just continued in such a manner. I was taught to see no evil. Hear no evil. And all the rest. You could say that I’ve finally grew up from living in a dream. A perfect world.
I was washing out my balcony just now and I had this conversation with JESUS.
I can’t change the world. The world is a mess. It’s heading for hell. This is the truth.
Only JESUS can.
I feel so helpless and useless and unsympathetic.
You reap what you sow. This is for sure.
I’ve sowed God all my life and sought HIM with all my ❤ and mind and strength.
I’m lost for words to express the dilemma the world is in.
What can I say!
Christ died for all who believe.
HE ❤ s all, especially those who come to HIM.
There is only one answer to this.
Go to the ONE who saves.
As a matter a fact – all year long. All the decades and centuries. All time, really.
Just go to JESUS and HE will lead you to all righteousness.
53 Who has believed what he has heard from us?
And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
2 For he grew up before him like a young plant,
and like a root out of dry ground;
he had no form or majesty that we should look at him,
and no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He was despised and rejected by men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
rand the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
yet he opened not his mouth;
like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
so he opened not his mouth.
8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
and as for his generation, who considered
that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
stricken for the transgression of my people?
9 And they made his grave with the wicked
and with a rich man in his death,
although he had done no violence,
and there was no deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him;
he has put him to grief;
when his soul makes an offering for guilt,
he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
11 Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant,
make many to be accounted righteous,
and he shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many,
and he shall divide the spoil with the strong,
because he poured out his soul to death
and was numbered with the transgressors;
yet he bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors.
