|Our Beautiful Daughter|
Today seems to be the day of doubt and the feeling of defeat for so many and for different reasons. For our family it is financial crunch time as the hubby works for the RV Company, called Keystone, which is shut down for 2 weeks for the 4th of July. For others it may be personal reasons I cannot share.
Friday June 26, 2015 many were celebrating the fact that same sex marriage is now legal in all 50 states, however, for the Bible and Jesus believing Christians it is a huge set back for our nation.
It grieves me to think how many people think that being gay and or homosexual is quite normal, even people who claim to be a Christian or attend church. How does it make God our Father, the creator of the world and author of the Bible feel?
Many places in the Bible it is quite clear that living a homosexual life is a sin. It is not a bigger sin than any other sin, however, still a sin. How can Christians turn their eyes against God and his word? How can they say drinking and or drug use is wrong and a sin and yet agree to the homosexual lifestyle simply because they know the person. Yes love that person and it is the greatest commandment, however not the sin.
“Praise You in this Storm” by Casting Crowns came to my mind Friday morning and “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” to my sister while she was at work.
Our family, a big family with 10 siblings, was raised going to church and believing in God the Father, the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ the son. It has gotten us through many a hard time and I often wonder how others do it without a faith-based life.
Newsboys Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
Now, while the song she first remembered was the old hymn we once sang in church, Turn your eyes upon Jesus, the Newsboys a few years back, took that song and gave it an up beat and even a better song. Many will be familiar with the old hymn; however, in case you do not know the words, here are the lyrics to follow along with the You Tube video.
Our family has undergone test and trials, however, we know where to place our trust, turn our eyes and give praise, do you?
