Find happiness when you seek the Lord

 

People seek happiness in other people, jobs, money, the government and other worldly things.  The only true happiness is in Jesus.  We have to choose to be happy everyday.  Psalm 37:4 (NIV) says “Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.”  There is song called “Happiness is the Lord” and real joy is only found in Jesus.

There is another song  about choosing to be happy.  Are we going to be happy today?  I know I will and choose to praise Jesus.

Ron Paul will not bow to the media

Daniel 3:16-18 says:  Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before in this matter.  If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king.  But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Ron Paul is very humble man of God.

Here a story of Veggie Tales

Ron Paul stands up for what he believes in

The media is like bunny in this song

Here is Gaither song

For far too long, America has been bowing before the idol of Molech. The god of gold. The god of money. Easy, false profits. Corporate America has combined with Washington D. C. Together, they have erected their monuments to their false gods, and those false gods have seemed to reward them with quick riches, immense power, and everything that goes with that.

Its time that we remembered what is important. God. Jesus Christ. Family. Liberty. Our Constitution. Fulfilling our promises. Serving each other, instead of only serving ourselves. Lets do the right thing, this time around. Instead of mindlessly voting for the lesser of two evils, as we have done for the last 24 years, lets vote for someone who stands for the same things we do. Who believes the same things we do. And who votes for the things they believe. This time around, let’s vote for Ron Paul.

Christianity is the cornerstone of our republic

The Emancipation Proclamation will turn 150 this year. Today is not the anniversary…..but Washington D. C. is celebrating Emancipation Day. Because, 150 years ago today, Lincoln freed all of the slaves in the District of Columbia. This was seen by many as the beginning of the end of slavery.

Abraham Lincoln has always been one of my heroes. There are many reasons why, but the top of the list is the freeing of the slaves. I’ve always had this place in my heart for freedom fighters, and lovers of liberty. Leonidas, Spartacus, Moses, Jesus, the Founding Fathers, William Wallace….their names and their stories bring a chill to my spine, a tear to my eye, and fill my tired old heart with some dim vestige of hope.

Ron Paul Kenobi....your my only hope....

I don’t think I’m the only one with this dream in his heart. Lets face it….one of the reasons Star Wars became so famous was because it was a group of heroic freedom fighters trying to rebel against an oppressive evil Empire. Sure we all loved the lasers and fight scenes and space chase scenes. I was a kid then….all the cool aliens were spiffy keen. But the movie still resonates with me. I can identify with Luke’s longing to get away from the petty hum drum of every day life and make an impact on the world around him. It makes sense that you’d rather be dead than a slave. And then there are the themes of family, forgiveness, and redemption.

Most of us have forgotten where a lot of those themes came from. Star Wars is awesome, and I love how it is

Sometimes I am frightened, but I'm willing to learn the power of myth....

so strongly influenced by Joseph Campbell’s wonderful book, The Power of Myth. I’ve read the book, but I don’t own it. Because I think that sometimes, we forget that not all things are merely metaphors. Don’t get me wrong…I love symbolism. Its one of the reasons why I am attracted by conspiracy theories (and that temptation gets stronger as I see the rotten things the media has done to Ron Paul). But I know that not all things are merely metaphors. And that metaphors are not as powerful as the real things themselves.

Every nation on earth has a myth of the Man-God who lives, dies, and is born again…and in so doing, saves humanity and All Good Things. A lot of people use that as evidence that there is no God. There can’t be…all turns out to be is our own Freudian wishful thinking. We want an all-powerful, all loving Father (or Mother), and so, we imagine He exists.

Its even in Star Wars, a little. Ben Kenobi lives, dies, and lives again as the ghost like guide of Luke. Han Solo lives, “dies” when he’s frozen in carbonite, and lives again as a better man (he even gets his eyes opened from his previous blindness). And of course, Vader himself. He lived as Anakin, died to become Vader, and was reborn as Luke’s father at the very end, when he chooses the love of his son over the dark Power granted him by the Dark Side.

This bothered me a lot as a freshman in college. Were all the things I believed about God merely

And God help us if we don't learn from experience....."Duncan Mcshame" 1971-????

day dreams and wish fulfillment? Had the difficult life that I had led caused me simply to take the false opiate of religion? Was the despair of this life so unbearable, that I had to invent fairy tales of a better world, in order to have enough false hope to bear this one? I brooded long over these dismal thoughts, and went to and fro in my Bible, like a devil wandering the world alone.

One of the papers I wrote for my honors English course was on C. S. Lewis’ The Abolition of Man. I’d already read The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Screwtape Letters. These were good, but they were fiction. As much as I might long to go to Narnia, as a grown man, I had to admit that there was no Narnia.

But Lewis showed that it was very highly possible that some of the higher things I believed might not be all shadows and chicanery, after all. I will try to write more about this later, as I’ve written enough, now. For now….happy Emancipation Day!
