When evil visited our beautiful City; we cried, we prayed, we hugged, we questioned,we came through stronger! Evil lost.
When Evil Came to my Town
Evil entered into my backyard, close to home, too close for comfort!
Yesterday we all cried, I cried.
Yesterday we all prayed, I prayed!
I will continue to pray, but
I am just angry!
Yes, you can be a Christian and you can be pissed-off, all at the same time.
It's allowed, we're only human, after all!
It is infuriating to me what Political Correctness has done and continues to do to us.
It has weakened us!
It has people; including acquaintances and loved ones, including the media, including the President of the United States, Barack Obama....scrambling to find something, anything tangible, to place all of the blame on, instead of calling it what it is!
Evil in the form of radical Islamists created the carnage in Benghazi...Paris...Fort Hood...San Bernardino and so on and so on and now, evil is responsible for the carnage in Orlando.
Guns, pipe bombs, box-cutters, machetes, knives, vehicles, improvised explosive devices, (basically anything and everything that they can get their wicked, wrong-doing, evil hands on) are tangible tools...a means utilized by all of these Evil doers, as they seek to conquer, maim, kill, destroy....they aren't picky!
Evil wins, when evil is ignored!
Evil thrives, when it is packaged up into little packages and labeled 'something else', 'anything else', 'other', 'unsolved'...as long as it is Politically Correct little tangible packages.
Every time these 'labeled' little packages are put away, closed off and ignored in some back storeroom, evil triumphs.
With each mislabeling, evil gains more of a stronghold!
These individuals, these evil doers, have chosen the wrong path, a path far removed from Holy God and his Holy Word.
A path far removed from The Way, The Truth and The Life!
It is pure unadulterated evil and it is high time we start calling it what it is.....
for crying out Loud.
For crying out Loud!
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!
I am working on containing this anger.
In the meantime,
I will continue to pray for my City, the beautiful City of Orlando!
I will continue to pray for this Nation!
I will continue to pray for the World!
- I am praying for the families of all those senselessly murdered and for the survivors of this latest massacre, to be able to move on with their lives, in as healthy a way as is humanly possible.
- We cannot begin to understand their mental and physical pain, but God does!
- I pray that if they do not already know Jesus Christ and have a personal relationship with him, they'll get to know him.
Also, for those on the path, far removed from God, I pray that they can be reached. I pray that their children can be reached, before another City awakens to such horrific News.
Holding on, in Faith....
Personally, I do not understand how anyone gets through the day to day or through these trying times that we are in, without it!
We must be resolute and unwavering in defeating evil, but a very important first step, is recognizing it and calling it by its name.
Evil abounds, but God is Ever-Present!
The City failed to recognize or call evil by its name! Another sad day!
It deeply saddens me that Orlando's Mayor, along with the City of Orlando, chose not to recognize Evil, nor call it by its name, but chose instead...to look to the past for something, anything 'tangible' to place all blame on.
They needed to make a sacrificial offering to please the Political Correctness crowd and so.....
they chose to place all blame, target all hate, toward a statue, one which has stood in Central Florida, in Orlando 'the City Beautiful' for over one hunded years.
In amazing, record-breaking time, the statue was dismantled and it is scheduled to be relocated to a cemetery. (so they say)
The statue's crime?
It has stood In Memoriam to fallen Confederate soldiers that lost their lives during the war between the North and the South.
- I need someone to put all of this, (erasing of History) into perspective and make some kind of sense out of it, because, I can't get there!
Once again, I find myself working on containing my anger, well aware that if every single piece of America's History is replaced or destroyed - renamed or banned.....
Evil will still exist, as it has since the beginning of time.
Once again, reminding myself that ignorance thrives and Evil abounds, but...
Orlando, the (still) beautiful, City!
...God is ever-present and good wins in the end!
- This City still stands
- This City still thrives
- This City still shines
This City is STILL Beautiful!
