Your definitely welcome BlackOps719!!
Naw, I wasn't taking ya cynical or being funny either; when it comes to rl issues, I'm all about being serious and giving everyone a second chance,
like someone did for me once.
~~Faith is a deadly vice, especially blind faith. It would be nice to know that there is a higher power in charge of this crazy world and that
everything in the end will be ok.
*looks at you seriously**... I REALLY know what you mean!! Even as a Christian, I see all this crap going on in the world and the nation we once
called One Nation under God.. but it's SO far from God... I seriously doubt we'll ever be the same. It challenges my faith to it's very core. It
will only be ok when Jesus returns and makes it ok.
It's sad BlackOps, as a Christian, I see the Christian community as a whole playing 'church' ya know? I get so angry because like the Jews we are
suppose to be 'changing' the world for the better .. but, it's all about how many people we can fill the pews with and just like in the days of
Jesus, they didn't even make room for the non-Jews to worship God and turned it into a market place to ........make money. Much .. like .....today.
the world is going to hell .. litterly and it's sing a few songs on Sunday morning and Easter and Christmas and we feel better.
However, 6 months ago, my wife was out of a job, rent was due (875.00) in 2 weeks, bills , IRS, Bankruptcy.. name it.. it was bad..I walked over to my
wife who was sitting on the couch and gave me a look of such depair, I buried my face in my couch and wept out load and said these very words...
"God, if you don't save us NOW, then no one is. Save us God! Save our finances, our children, because if you don't save us now, not tomorrow, not
yesterday.. not in 5 minutes from now ... THEN NO ONE CAN!!. Save us Lord!" As I pounded my fist on the pillows in earnest plea.
After 10 minutes of weeping my eyes out, we went to bed. The next day, my wife called me at work, crying and said...."Honey....i'm ok.. but I wanted
to let you know I just got a job.. for $20.00 an hour" I looked at the clock....it's was 10am.....
That's the God of the Universe I know!
BlackOps, There IS hope in God! There NEVER will be hope in the world, But, we all have to reach out to the hand that is always there.
LORD, I say unto my Lord, ....
Father in Heaven, I ask, that you do something, special for BlackOps today, something from you that will bring Hope to him and all his struggles and
every day trails. Something that will fan the small light of faith you've given to every man woman and child on earth .. I ask Lord for Mercy, and
Grace in BlackOps world because he needs a second chance....like you gave me...remember? When no one gave me the time of day....you did Lord. Speak
to BlackOps today and to everyone that is in despair and is looking for that Hope that only you can give.
In Jesus Name.

Thanks for sharing Kimodo, I will have to take your word for it. Im not being cynical or attempting to be funny, I just find some things to be les
than believable when it comes to matters of faith.
Faith is a deadly vice, especially blind faith. It would be nice to know that there is a higher power in charge of this crazy world and that
everything in the end will be ok. Unfortunately I only know the here and now, and the rest to me is just opinion.
