…hearts full of evil

November 8, 2008

I’ve been  thinking about the ugliness that I have seen this week since the historic event that took place November 4  here in  the United States of America.  These thoughts have sometimes kept me up at night.  Barack Obama has been elected as our new president.  I have heard terrible things being said about a man who has not yet taken office.  It has caused my heart to ache to see the bigotry that had been hidden and cloaked in garments of niceness and tolerance. Now the big event has uncovered the true nature of some.  Hate speak abounds.  Nothing is held back.  The  feelings of the heart are being exposed.  It has made me sick.   I searched for answers in the Holy scriptures.  King Solomon offered an explanation in the 9th book of Ecclesiastes verse 3.  This explanation has calmed my spirit and brought understanding.

“This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all:  yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.”

Hearts full of evil and madness. The only explanation that has brought definition to what I have seen and heard. I want to be a child of God.  I want my heart to be filled with love and understanding.  Creator God please help me.

Just thinking……….

Grace and Love

September 27, 2008

 

The great Creator of all gave us everything He had to save us from this present evil world. He gave us His only son, and His son was more then willing to come from a beautiful place to this raggedy place to show that it is possible to be light in darkness.  And then this son; His only son, gave up his life to save mine.  I have not given Him anything to receive this grace and love but it is there just the same whether I want it or not.
