I have been asking God for weeks, "What about those Christians in Iraq, Lord?! Why aren't you rescuing them? WHERE are their angels? Why isn't the Holy Spirit in them stronger than the evil spirit in those barbarians who are killing them? Why? Why? Why?
It is so hard to understand.
The desciples taught us in the New Testament about how we can stand on the Word and the promises of God, and we can overcome the devil and command a mountain to move, and we can have what we say. BUT, all those desciples of Christ died terrible deaths. Why?
I don't understand, and it doesn't matter that I don't understand, because I know "we see through a glass darkly" right now as the Bible says.
I DO want to know what -- if anything -- I can do about it. I pray every day for those Christian people in Iraq and Syria, and I pray that God will send millions of angels and will destroy every single warrior from ISIS. I pray that God will defend and protect Israel. I hate that America is like it is right now and doesn't make a strong stand for Israel or those innocent people being tortured for no reason at all other than their belief in God.
I pray that a strong Godly man rises up to take the helm of this ship called America before it totally sinks into the slime of sin and degradation of so-called political correctness and the refusal to recognize that our Constitution was founded on Bible principles and allowed for Separation OF Church and State -- NOT Separation FROM Church and State!
Anyway, Hagee's sermon is in there somewhere.
After church, I finished my royal blue jacket. It is Louise Cutting's pattern called A New Dimension. As with all of her patterns, I made a Small, and I had to keep taking it in. She really likes a LOT of ease in her patterns.
Here is a picture taken of the jacket DIRECTLY OUT OF THE DRIER. It has not been pressed. I wanted Phylly to see it because we had sort of a contest today to see if either one of us could finish something. I'm not sure if she did or not. This jacket has to be pressed, but then it is ready to wear.
I have to go back to work tomorrow and deal with some issues there. It will be good to see everyone. I really do enjoy being there, and I have to stop myself from standing around and talking to everyone all day long.
Have a MARVELOUS week my friends, and may God bless you all with health and happiness.
