I’m Warrior, How About You? – Music Monday

I’ve had a lot on my mind lately but have been struggling to find the words to write about it so instead, I have remained silent. Today I have decided that I just can’t keep silent anymore and will let the words flow as they may… no corrections will be made so please forgive the typing errors.  Also – If you are alive and breathing then you’ve most likely seen or heard what I am getting ready to talk about and I have no idea what side of this you are on but hopefully you know me enough that what I write here comes from my heart and is said with love and that I am not trying to stir the pot in a bad way at all. Only love lives here on this blog ❤

Here goes….

Lately, the world seems to have gone a little crazy…make that a LOT crazy! People seem are so divided on everything and I’m really quite sick of it. Everywhere I turn I see people hurting others and making hate-filled comments on social media about everything you could ever imagine! I won’t bother listing them all here because I am sure you have already heard them all too.  If you can name it then I am pretty sure someone will most likely have a problem with it and say something negative.

Lately, it also seems like everyone is right… (according to themselves) And everyone who they think is wrong needs to be told publically about it in a mean way.

Am I right?… Or maybe I am wrong…

Does it really matter who is right or wrong?  We all have an opinion and we have a right to have that opinion, but is it really necessary to voice that opinion against one another all of the time?

What if we all just opened up our eyes one day and actually tried to really see the people we are around day in and day out as a fellow human being and then we just went ahead and loved them for who they are… no matter what they believe?!

Right now I have about 20 close people I know who are going through some very serious things in their lives. For them, there is a war going on right now and to them, it’s not against another person and it’s not about who’s right or wrong.  They have bigger fish to fry than that! So many are fighting very serious things right now, like the loss of a loved one, illnesses, drug and alcohol addiction, homelessness, seriously… I could list things forever and never end this list!  I’m sure you probably have a few of your own things that you could to add.

The struggle is real! and we all really need one another right now!

God didn’t put us here to go through things alone and he especially didn’t put us here to fight against each other!

What if we all just made the decision to become warriors FOR everyone else instead of only for our own agenda?

I’m not sure if today’s song goes with what I wrote today or not, but I really love this song and feel like no matter who we are…we all are… or we will be… warriors at one time or another in our lives. We all have struggles that we have to battle every single day.  I know I have been a warrior myself and hope I can say I am for others … No matter how hard we try there is always room for improvement.

Sooooo…..What do ya say, can we all be warriors for the same Team?

Let’s all give LOVE a try!

Here is the song, I hope you enjoy it and it makes you want to join me! – Warrior by Hannah Kerr

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. – Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

I hope you have a wonderful day!

    Although I agree T that Love must always motivate all we do and say as Christians especially towards each other in The Body of Christ, it is not Love to watch someone letting Satan get a foothold in their lives without warning them and God asks us to do this as confirmed in the Scriptures below. He also asks us who will Contend with Him against Evil, who will Stand up for His Truth.

    When I was getting involved in Gambling again T, two of my close Christian friends rebuked me, you can be sure it was not appreciated at the time and I kept a long distance from them, later I even stopped going to Church as the Gambling Addiction took over and I had no power to stop it but when I was delivered from the Addiction after almost committing Suicide and than being Miraculously healed, they were the first people I Thanked for warning me after Thanking God for His Love and Mercy and the Elder who Anointed me for his Faithfulness and Compassion. But it is not about judging other peoples weaknesses and shortcomings, we all have them and I have more than most.

    Ephesians 5:8-11 For you were once darkness but now you are Light in the Lord. Live as Children of Light for ( the fruit of the light consists in all Goodness, Righteousness and Truth) and find out what pleases the Lord.

And if he Trespass against thee seven times in a day and seven times in a day turn again to thee saying; I repent thou shalt forgive him. And the Apostles said unto the Lord Increase our Faith.

    1 Timothy 5:21-22 Them that Sin Rebuke before all that others also may fear. I charge thee before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect Angels that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality. Lay hands suddenly on no man neither be partaker of other Men’s Sins: keep thyself Pure.(KJV)

    Proverbs 9:8-9 Reprove not a scorner lest he hate thee Rebuke a Wise Man and he will Love thee. Give instruction to a Wise Man, and he will be yet Wiser, teach a just Man and he will increase in learning.(KJV)

    Ecclesiastes 7:4-6 The Heart of the Wise is in the house of mourning but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth. It is better to hear the Rebuke of the Wise, than for a Man to hear the song of fools. For as the crackling of thorns under a pot so is the laughter of the fool this also is vanity.(KJV)

    2 Timothy 4:1-3 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall Judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and His Kingdom; Preach the word be instant in season, out of season; Reprove, Rebuke, Exhort with all long suffering and Doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound Doctrine but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;(KJV)

    Titus 2 :11 -15 For the grace of God that bringeth Salvation hath appeared to all Men,Teaching us that denying ungodliness and worldly lusts we should live soberly, righteously and godly in this present World looking for that Blessed Hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave Himself for us that He might Redeem us from all iniquity and purify unto Himself a peculiar people zealous of Good Works. These things Speak and Exhort and Rebuke with all Authority. Let no Man despise thee..(KJV)

    Titus 1:12-14 One of themselves even a prophet of their own said, the Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore Rebuke them sharply that they may be sound in the Faith, Not giving heed to Jewish fables and Commandments of Men that turn from the Truth.(KJV)

    Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpeneth Iron so a Man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.(KJV)

    Ezekiel 33:8-9 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked Man thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked Man shall die in his iniquity but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it if he do not turn from his way he shall die in his iniquity but thou hast delivered thy Soul. (KJV)

    Leviticus 19:17 You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely Rebuke your Neighbor and not bear Sin because of him. (NKJV)

    James 5:19-20 Brethren, if any of you do err from the Truth and one convert him Let him know that he which converteth the Sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death and shall hide a multitude of Sins.

    2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is given by Inspiration of God, and is profitable for Doctrine, for Reproof, for Correction, for Instruction in Righteousness: That the man of God may be Perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all Good Works.

    Jeremiah 23:36 Thus shall ye say every one to his Neighbour and every one to his brother; What hath the Lord answered and what hath the Lord Spoken?(KJV)

    Revelation 3:19 As many as I Love I rebuke and chasten be zealous therefore and Repent.
