When information was leaked this week concerning the bombing in Manchester, England, leave it to an American newspaper to be the first to make money from the deaths of children! I am ashamed and disgusted with the New York Times and whoever made the decision to publish confidential information pertaining to the bombing.
And I sincerely apologize to Manchester and all of England for their unscrupulous decision. Manchester and England, we support you here in America and we grieve with you! Please do not let one erroneous decision block out the fact that we are family. And family stands with each other during good times and during the unthinkable one. Please know there is no death with those who know Jesus Christ! Only an untimely separation between you and your loved ones. For your children and loved ones are royalty within the Kingdom of Heaven, waiting on the day when you will be together again!
But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” Matthew 19:14
Americans; the war on terrorism is just as important as winning World War II was, and standing with our allies is even more necessary today. How an American publication could publish the items of the bombing, almost seems like they are aiding the terrorists rather than protecting our own country of America and her allies. Americans need to step up and stop this ridiculous “make money at all costs” mentality of American media outlets. They are only hurting America and our allies.
Theses media outlets release themselves of all responsibilities, because sitting on a fat pile of money softens their conscious. We know where their brains are located! And if another act of terrorism occurs harming more innocent, because they alerted them and the terrorists were able to relocate operations, then the media outlets can stuff their ears with the money. Thus, muffling the cries of the innocent’s dying.
Yes, money makes all decisions right. Or do they?
Aren’t you sick of our media outlets yet, America! I am! The truth and ethics are too far from their reach, so they grab what makes them big bucks instead.
How long will we allow American media outlets to make harmful decisions which affect our country, our allies, and even the future of our children?
Well, the decision to support these outlets by watching, buying, or advertising with them is up to you.
I made mine years ago.
God Bless You!
God Bless America, England, and Manchester!
I tried to write a note to the Martinez family concerning their loss of their beloved child Jonathan. My own mother and grandmother’s heart is shattered into pieces for what they are going through. A child should never, never go through the shooting which happened in their classroom on Monday! And a parent should not have to bury their child!
Off to my prayer closet I went this morning, to discuss it over with Jesus before I began to write.
At first my tears and words were hot with anger. Angry at every adult who has let evil take a child away from their earthly home and family. I proclaimed to Jesus that if I were head of education in America, I would fight like a lioness against every local, state, and national representative in America for the money they waste. I would blast my disgust every day and in every way I could, over the mere pennies they spend on the children of America in comparison to the millions they spend on their own self-serving agendas. And in their pruned up faces, I would plaster the children’s faces who have lost their lives, not because of a gun but because of them and their greed!
“Read your devotion, Joni.” I heard Him say.
My devotion book is called Mornings with the Holy Spirit by Jennifer LeClaire.
April 11 is titled “Be Quick to Forgive.”
When you are angry and frustrated, you have to ask yourself an honest question: Have you let resentment build up in your heart? Unless you are intentional about forgiving and are quick to forgive – a residue of resentment will build up over your heart the way dirt builds up on a windshield. Over time it will sink down into your heart and form a root of bitterness. Anger and frustration are often rooted in a failure to forgive the little annoyances as they occur. Eventually, the resentment pot boils over. Be quick to forgive – every time you get slightly annoyed. Be quick to forgive.
Suggested reading…Hebrews 12:15; Colossians 3:13; 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7.
Wow! God came in loud and clear!
I serve a mighty God. One who loves me and the whole world! Even if you don’t believe in Him, He believes in you!
After God set me straight, it took awhile before I was composed enough to exit my prayer closet.
I was ready to write the Martinez family a note…
Dear Martinez Family,
I will be praying for you and you will become a part of my permanent daily prayer list. Jesus is the only one who can get you through this over whelming grief and heal your heart until you are with Jonathan again.
Today Jesus gave me this bible verse and I believe it is for you…
Matthew 18: 1-5
At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
He called a little child and had him stand among them. And He said:
“I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven,”
“And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.”
Jonathan is that child with Jesus and I know the angels are rejoicing because one of their own angels has returned home.
May God hold you in His loving arms always!
All my love and prayers, Joni
Now, I ask you to join me in praying for the Martinez family. Prayer is the greatest blessing we can do for one another on this earth!
God Bless You! God Bless the families affected by Monday’s classroom shooting.
OH YES THEY CAN! Their new album, Lifer, is amazing, incredible and so uplifting! Having a bad day? Then go to YouTube and listen to the audio versions, or better yet go to iTunes and just buy it. I pre-ordered Lifer and received teaser songs one at a time and then bam! The whole album.
Most of the time, when I get a new album, there are maybe 5 or 6 songs I really like. Rarely do I like all of the songs on an album. Lifer is one album that I love all of the songs.
The song “Even If” is a good reminder that Pastors, Praise Leaders, and Church teachers, get up on stage every Sunday and lift us up. It does not matter what has been happening in their lives or the struggles they may be going through. Have you looked at your Pastor as a human being with the same temptations as the rest of us fallen beings? We are men and women, male and female traveling through this time together for God’s reason.
OK, I won’t tease you too much. The song I am putting on my site is called “Grace Got You.” Now, I am going to stop writing so I can start dancing to the song.
God Bless You!
