This is Just A Minute This is the…

This is Just-A-Minute. This is the beginning of a new year. As I look over the past year, the Holy Spirit teaches me, “in everything give thanks.” But I must admit, I am struggling as I think of where our country is headed; no, not headed, arrived! As I look back to November 6th and remember referendums affirming same-sex marriage and recreational marijuana, I am not grateful. As I see principle overcome by purse-strings, faith outstripped by finance, morality sacrificed for money, decency rejected for dollars, ethics overhauled for economics; I am not content. I will pray without ceasing, but I cannot in everything give thanks. The Spirit is quenched and the prophecies are despised and no one groans or trembles at His word. Where are the poor and contrite of spirit? The word commands, “Stand in the ways and seek the old paths, wherein is the good way” but the people say, “We will not walk in it.” Hear O earth and know O people, this shall not last, the end of all is yet, Jesus is coming.
