OK, one tough year has gone by. At least for me and my family. And me personally. Tough financial times for us this year, but we're still makin' it. Lost my friend Bobo, and my favorite uncle passed away yesterday. I know many people on this site have had a very tough time. I feel so blessed to have my relationship with God, my family and friends, and this all seems to help keep things in perspective and get me through the tough times. I'd like to start a thread about what we do when times are tough, how we make it through, how we celebrate when times are good, how we enjoy success, the things we struggle with, the way we deal with those struggles, how we overcome them, favorite lyrics or poems or passages. What keeps us grounded and gives our life meaning and purpose. Non denominational, non- judgemental. I'll launch this sucker and see if she floats.
As we have gone through the year money has gotten tighter and tighter, and sometimes lately it has felt like I'm about to be strangled by worry. I used to pray at night, when I was lying there awake and tryig not to worry, that God would deliver us from this situation. But lately it's been more that God would give me the strength to see us through the situation. Once I started looking at it that way, everything changed. Money is still tight, especially just after Christmas, but all the pieces we have been putting together to build a more solid future seem to be about to fall into place. My attitude and patience have been much better since I changed the way I thought about it (or it was changed for me, whichever you prefer). Seems like so many times just a slight change in our perspective can give or lives a whole different look. I like this one alot better.

I read this the day you posted it and said a prayer for you (not so much for her, her place is secure ) that you're ok. I didn't post at the time out of respect to Gregg.

be well.

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

1John 5:13

and you too anthony.

Lost my last grandparent today. She was 91 years young and had lived a very eventful life raising my dad and his brothers and sisters. She was super religious and didn't put up with any nonsense but always supported them in their musical ventures wether it was buying an organ, drum set, or guitar and I think that is why music is in my genes. My dad and I thought Multi-Colored Lady and Will The Circle are a must at her funeral. Another Allman related story I wanted to share that my uncle told me is that she was never a fan of alcohol or drugs but she enjoyed good music. One day he came in from a "late night" and found her listening to an ABB album and she said, "Wow, Bob. They have a REALLY good drummer!" He then educated her that there were indeed 2 drummers making that magic happen. RIP Granny Spare, the road goes on forever.

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me

Break my heart for what breaks yours
Everything I am for Your kingdom's cause
As I walk from earth into eternity

Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame
And the cry of my heart
Is to bring You praise
From the inside out
Lord my soul cries out

I found them very compelling, in one, Jesus came to someone who was abducted by Isis, and he made the way for the guy, who was sentenced to death, to escape.

In the second one, another person from Hezbollah had a visit from Jesus who also saved him.

There is one more video I did not put up, where a young Muslim girl plans to kill herself, but her Mother was on the phone with a preacher and tried to get the girl to talk to the preacher, and she told the preacher she would give Jesus one week and if he did not deliver a miracle she would kill herself and her Mother. Within that week's time, the Mother who had been bedridden got up out of bed and walked. They went to the Doctor who told them she no longer had Multiple Sclerosis and that it was a miracle, all her blood work was now normal.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJUh-Jeqfrg

I saw another one of an Isis fighter who was given a task by his Commander to write a book on why the Bible was changed and was wrong and compare it to the Quran. The fighter converted to Christianity, that one was very good.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyKcAF-T_1veT0srqy3racg

God is aware of everyone, and as I have said, when the time comes, there will be an army of Muslim fighters who accompany Jesus and protect him in the battle of Armageddon. Those men will be a group of true believers.

I didn't watch or listen, having gotten the gist of those videos just from the titles. I suppose some would argue that Christ is preparing those He wants to save for His soon-to-be return, others, me included, believe that's something way down the road. People convert all the time, God is pretty powerful. I'm really not into that type of discussion, my thing is to keep my relationship as solid with Him as possible, as much as it rests on my shoulders, not His. That's about it for me...

The disciples came to him and asked, "Why do you speak to the people in parables?"

He replied, "The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them."

Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. "You of little faith", he said, "why did you doubt?"

Please pray for my mother who is suffering in pain with pancreatic cancer. A mother of eight. The hardest working, and most determined person there is. Unable to go to church, but watches every day on TV.

First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.

Therefore dear friends, since you already know this, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of lawless men and fall from your secure position.

2Peter 3:3, 3:17

At that time Jesus said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure."

Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world---the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does---comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.

1John 2:15-17

"So do not worry, saying , 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own".

Matthew 6: 31-34

Thank you, Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
