WHY bother with all that's happening in our world today?

Friday, September 26, 2014

New York subways are under terrorist alert this morning~ Christians, children and people all over the world are being martyred or murdered. The world is at war!!

Teenagers and young people are committing suicide at a higher rate than ever.
So, why bother to take care of ourselves by eating emoticon right and exercising emoticon daily? Who really cares anyway?

We must continue to care! We must be ABLE to help others emoticon when all seems hopeless. If I can't function well because I'm not eating right or give into depression, I'm going to fall apart! True in the worldly view, I'm not important, but all around me people are suffering. I can make a difference emoticon and so can you if we emoticon remember to look up to our creator when we are tempted to give in and over indulge!!

Some people in the world don't have water to drink, and we fall down at drinking 8 glasses emoticon per day!
We must forgive ourselves and keep doing our best to follow after the highest reasonable goal we can set. Dont fall apart when others laugh or scorn at our attempt. Each of us have a battle we fight, after all.

We are as capable to today as we will ever be! It's by our position in faith that we can continue to fight this battle and eat emoticon right, drink emoticon water and emoticon exercise!! We are not alone......

I may not ever meet my Spark friends, but I pray for you! Let's pray emoticon for New York city and our world today!! We do MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!

Snoopy says it best!!

PS My scales are moving in the right direction now! emoticon emoticon

    What strength we have when we unite to strengthen God. Like minds to heal the planet. thanks for reminding everyone to not give in. it is very hard because we are human, and not super human. I hope your pain from the accident is getting the attention it needs to go in the right direction to heal. All healing seems to be time consuming, and takes a lot of patience and perseverance. hang in there. lol, eva

    Amen. Praise God we can be lights shining brightly in this dark world. Praise God we can point people to Christ and remind one another, that Heaven is our home , but until we reach this place Jesus has called us to occupy until he comes.

    This is beautiful ......... so sensitive and you say so many things we need to take to heart .......... When I recently watched SMALL children walking miles down dirt paths ........... barefoot to try to scrounge up a cup of water; then carry a pot (if found) back to their family ............... I cried! .......(not even clean water!)....... This happens daily .... and may we never take for granted that we have pure water at our fingertips .............. My heart aches for these innocent victims ......... How much abundance we have every day; You open our hearts to their outcry ............. we can give w/ our monies but certainly pray for this world ........ My oh my ................ (I watched the news today; crying again) .......... May we never become callous to innocent men being decapitated! .............. This is HORROR and now they did it to one of their own people too! ................. thank you for writing on this sensitive but real topic of things happening ............... and I do agree ............. NO one is or should ever be in a place of judging one another ............. Love them all. Also ............. thanks for writing on my blog today. ((hugs)) ................. Jan
