Lord, We Are Stupid Sheep

Lord, we are stupid sheep. We, the people of USA need You. Even though we don’t deserve it, please intervene for us. Have mercy on us. At this time we are in the middle of a pandemic, mass confusion, rioting, and an election year.

Over 2000 yrs. ago, You told how the Good Shephard would  leave 99 to find the one lost. Lord, we are a mass population of stupid sheep and we have completely lost our way.

To begin with, we ask You to intervene for those sick with CV-19. And we thank you for those who have recovered. Comfort those who have lost their loved ones in this pandemic. And Lord, we, I ask that this CV-19 be gone in one day like the plagues in Your Word.

Lord, let the people in ICU at the hospitals suddenly be healed in such a way that the doctors are shocked and amazed. Let the sick rise up out of their sickbeds.

Lord, let families be restored to one another. Let those in long care facilities be visited by their families. Let hugs began again.

Lord, our land needs healing. Our people need healing. But do it in such a  way that only YOU get the credit, not science, not medical treatment or knowledge- only YOU.

As a people we have turned away from You. Please forgive us. Turn our hearts back to You. Show us how to reach out and love each other as You love us. And help us to turn our hearts to You in response to Your love.

Lord, we need You to intervene in behalf of our nation and all the people throughout the world. As of now we have leaders who are seeking their own agendas, not Your will. We have leaders who have increased the size of their pockets, but not for the benefit of the people.

Lord, You said in Your Word if you don’t work, you don’t eat. Solomon said happiness and satisfaction comes from a man’s work. As a nation we need to return to work. Although we know true happiness and peace comes from You, satisfaction from a job well done helps.

Lord, we ask that You remove ALL politicians who think it’s more important to save or protect grass and animals versus jobs so that parents can feed their children.

We have politicians who approve of infant sacrifice on the altar of “self” and “convenience”. Furthermore, they want to tax working people to pay for this child murder.

Lord, You led men long ago to help form this country and bring freedom to all, with the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness. Lord, You are the true source of life, liberty, and happiness. And when You are told to “butt-out” of our lives, our government, our schools, and our churches, there is no life, no liberty, and no happiness.

Lord, we need You for we have no power to save ourselves. Even though we are stupid sheep who follow stupid leaders, who are wolves in sheep’s clothing, liars, and thieves, deliver us from this evil.

I watched a video where one politician actually said, quote, unquote: “We tell a lie, let the media report it, then it becomes truth. That’s how we work.” Then she smiled at her audience. Lord, deliver USA from these liars, especially her.

Lord, remove all politicians who lie to manipulate the hearts and minds of the people. Remove all those in the media who are happy to repeat these lies in exchange for financial increase.

Lord, children have disappeared and the hearts of their parents and families grieve. I know You know what has happened to each child. Not only destroy all the evil people who hurt children, but also destroy those who kill infants in their mother’s wombs or at birth. And destroy their industry too.

We read of people long ago who sacrificed their babies to false gods by throwing them in the river to drown, or by burning them in a fire sacrifice, or throwing them off a cliff in order to sacrifice their babies to the false gods of water, fire, or land.

It’s still going on today only now it’s in sterile medical offices with so-called doctors sacrificing babies to the gods of “self” and “convenience”. Lord, I ask that You grant USA leaders who will completely destroy these medical altars of child sacrifice to false gods.

Throughout this land, the blood of these innocents cry out for revenge. Revenge them Lord. Destroy and erase these altars of murder and the blood stain of child sacrifice across our land.

Overall Lord, our land is covered with filth, sin filth, blood, and murder.

we are stupid sheep

Bring revival to our land, revival to our dead hearts, and awaken us to Your love. We are stupid sheep. Make us all “woke” to You and Your love for us. Even though we don’t deserve it, we humbly ask for Your forgiveness and healing.

In fact You are our only hope.

Finally thank you for listening to my words. Change our hearts and our minds. Cleanse our land. Forgive our sin. Thank you Lord , amen.

We are stupid sheep

Our Coronavirus Experience

Thought I’d share our coronavirus experience. It’s not over yet, but what a month it’s been. Hope this never happens again.

"Stay Home"
Stay Home

Overall we do have a lot to be thankful for. To begin with, we’ve escaped getting the virus. Although a friend went to the hospital for emergency stomach surgery, he didn’t get CV-19. Although a sister-in-law went to the hospital for emergency surgery due to a kidney stone, she didn’t get CV-19. To me, the worst part of their hospital stay for over a week was that they could not have any family with them. Both are safely home now. Thank you Lord.

At this time, our city has the highest number of cases in our state. But no one I personally know has gotten the virus. It seems the greatest number of cases are in the rest homes. (Lord, bring Your healing power to these precious elders.)

Hubby’s niece works as a speech therapist in a quality rest home. Although the report is they now have 45 cases, she has not gotten the virus. For this we are thankful. She has two small children to care for. (But Lord, please intervene in behalf of these elders who have served others throughout their lives.)

To begin our coronavirus experience story, we must begin at the grocery store. At the beginning of our story I was still working part time. So I wasn’t able to go grocery shopping at that time. But when I did go, was I ever surprised. I’ve never seen the shelves this empty in all my life, not even when a hurricane was coming.

Coronavirus Experience
The milk case- Almost no milk

I was shocked. It took seven trips to purchase what I thought we might need. What if we were quarantined in our house for two weeks and couldn’t even leave for groceries? Getting sick didn’t make me panic  or fearful, but seeing empty food shelves did.

Coronavirus Experience
The lunchmeat and sliced cheese case.
The orange juice case-
The boxed goods case

And you couldn’t find toilet paper anywhere. Why? There were no extra rolls at my house. So I bought boxes of Kleenex. It was all I could find and I felt lucky to find that.

One afternoon, Hubby came in and said he had a gift for me. Then he handed me this package of toilet paper. I was so thrilled, you’ve thought he gave me diamonds.

Diamonds

For me, one of the worst parts was not being able to see my grandchildren. We did use facetime, but it just wasn’t the same. I like hugs from my grandbabies.

Watching her jump on her trampoline via facetime.

And we weren’t able to be there to help granddaughters celebrate their birthdays. So we made a video for each one on their birthday.

 

 

 

Happy Birthday

We  watched as the Stock Market crashed. Goodbye Hubby’s IRA, 25 years of his life savings disappearing daily.

But overall, the saddest event of our coronavirus experience was the death of Hubby’s brother. No, he didn’t have CV-19. He was cutting limbs out of an oak tree at his church. Somehow he fell off the ladder. We suppose he hit his head on some landscaping rocks. Even though they rushed him by helicopter he passed away on the way.

At his funeral we could only have 10 people and we had to social distance one another. In the chapel, we had to sit on every other pew. They did livestream the service for others to watch. So sad and so surreal.

After the funeral we ate a family meal together and hugged each other in his home. To heck with social distancing. We were grieving and didn’t care about social distancing at all.

Later that night I developed a fever of 100.6. I cried myself to sleep thinking that I had exposed the entire family to CV-19. It turned out to be a bad tooth. Thank God and antibiotics, it quit hurting. But I’m still waiting to see a dentist.

Drive-up church

One of my favorite holidays is Easter. But this year was the saddest Easter ever. Two days after the funeral.  It felt so strange, having no grandchildren to give a basket too. No dressing up for church, no singing in the choir, and no family celebration.

We did go to drive-up church which was nice, but it just wasn’t the same as having Resurrection Sunday celebration in the sanctuary.

Now media has been talking about a possible food shortage due to CV-19. After hearing that a full-fledge panic set in. After all, I am a Foodie. But then I had to remember- faith. God provided manna. So I need to keep the faith.

Regardless of all, God is still good. There’s no reason to fear for God has promised to be with us. We can trust Him, no matter what.

WORDS OF FAITH

And we know that all things work together for good to those who are the called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust. Psalm 91: 1,2 

The red ribbon represents praying for our USA and all CV-!9 sufferers.

“Stay Home”- Victory Plan

Here’s part of my Victory Plan journal for the “Stay Home” order. Due to this mandate, for several weeks I’ve mostly ate and watched TV. So now I’ve gained over 10 pounds. How depressing.

Then last week God gave me a dream- I was in my classroom, my students were acting crazy, I had no lesson plan, and the principal walks in to observe me. I panicked. What am I going to do?- Then when I woke up and God spoke to my heart, “You need discipline and a plan.” (Note: I am a retired teacher.)

So I’m sharing my Victory Plan Journal for your “Stay Home” mandate. Hope it helps you as well. It’s free for you to print and use for yourself.

My goal is 40 days of victory, in eating and in life general. So here’s my plan, to work through this journal for 40 days. Presently I’m working on Day 5 and I’ve already lost 2 pounds. Yay!

I’ll post more Victory Plans next week. Hopefully this’ll help you begin 40 days of victory for your “Stay Home” mandate. I’m hoping soon we’ll be released from this order soon. Some states are opening up slowly and some states are extending their stay at home order. Hopefully soon, we can return to our so-called normal lives again. What is normal, anyway? What is our new normal?

May God bless you and keep you safe. May you experience success from this day forward. Let me know what you think.

Lord, help them prosper in all their endeavors. Keep all well and safe.

Deborah
