            It seems that more and more good morals and the values of the Word of God is shunned and disrespected.  Even when the world shows its terrible colors, and makes absolutely no sense some still profess the way wrong is right.  It is our choice do we follow God or do we go the way of the world?

How is Wrong Shown as Right?

How is it wrong is shown as right?
And the foul becomes acceptable in your sight?
What makes a man not see his rightful place?
He eats with the swine and refuses the table of grace.
When the world tumbles and begins to spin out of control,
How is it they do not reach for God’s loving-hold?
It is sad to see their stubborn stance,
That is so ready to fight God’s will in their circumstance.
They choose to dance to the tune of the world in its unholy light;
Remaining in the world’s mire they delight.
Utter nonsense piles up within,
Fueling the fire of their sins.
Far-reaching damage is inside done,
When the fool turns his heart from God’s Son.
Sin is the culprit- evil appetites are the result they reap.
The Good News that frees them they refuse to keep.
So they will not taste the things beautiful and healthy for them prepared.
To do your part pray and continue to the truth with them share.

Isaiah 42:6-7
I am the Lord; I have called you in righteousness;
I will take you by the hand and keep you;
I will give you as a covenant for the people,
a light for the nations,
 to open the eyes that are blind,
to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon,
from the prison those who sit in darkness.

Jeremiah 29:11-13
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.

Lies, Lies, Lies By Brenda Drake

Have you felt lately a little out of touch with reality?  Almost as if we are living in the twilight-zone.  When I begin to feel like this there is one place that can and does get me grounded and back on track…I go to the Lord in prayer and delve into the Scriptures. A new hope and faith rises up by hearing and heeding the truth and setting aside the many untruths that bombard us in the world with its unbelieving, faithless ways.

Lies, Lies, Lies

Manufactured, mass-produced lies,
Full of deception, behind masks disguised.
Tall tales and tiny innuendoes under the same name,
They are called and marked as a lie just the same.
In the world voices are heard; many things untrue.
They if heeded are meant to pull away in deception or to confuse.
When you are confused and muddled in your thinking,
Then you are sure to make decisions that are stinking.
Train your heart and spirit to hear God’s voice.
It will co-inside with Scripture to help you make the right choice.
Lies, lies, lies everywhere you turn.
There will be even more lies uttered until Jesus returns.
Jesus is the truth, He will show you the way right.
He is the Word God sent to cause your heart delight.
When you obey the Word and heed its direction,
You have the mind of Christ and will not be led astray in deception.

John 14:5
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

James 3:14-17
But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.  This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.  For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.  But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
