I wonder how many Americans truly mourn as to what is happening in our Country? When we suffer from mass shooting’s almost weekly, innocent people being killed, do you truly mourn? I think a lot of people say, “Oh, that’s so sad.” “God bless the families.” “I will be praying.” Americans are no longer safe in their own homes or cars, have not been for awhile. We are unraveling at a rapid pace. Many pray, but do not repent, they do not change their behavior. True repentance is a change in behavior. So many prayer meetings are being held. BUT, a change of behavior of Americans is not happening. We are a failing nation. New America Values

Got Questions explains True Repentance this way: The word repentance in the Bible literally means “the act of changing one’s mind.” True biblical repentance goes beyond remorse, regret, or feeling bad about one’s sin. It involves more than merely turning away from sin. Eerdmans Bible Dictionary includes this definition of repentance: “In its fullest sense it is a term for a complete change of orientation involving a judgment upon the past and a deliberate redirection for the future.” More Here

Reason Our Prayers Are Not Answered

I encourage you to go to a hospital, a nursing home and a funeral once a month. I was told this years ago. It really has affected my life. I love and care for all. Sharon and I attempt to share our hearts with all as we travel. My Daddy always told me, “Put yourself in their shoes.” I feel the sadness and the burden so very much. It at times is a heavy load on my soul, heart and mind. I am preparing to officiate a Memorial service on Friday. A Mother and Father are burying their daughter.

Got Questions puts it this way: Mourning is the state of being in deep grief. We mourn over a profound loss, such as the death of a loved one or a crippling accident. We also mourn over our own sins or mistakes. We mourn for the purity of heart we once enjoyed or for a future our choices have destroyed. Mourning is part of being human. It is an expression of our hearts when something we value has been taken from us. It can also be a way to convey our agreement with God’s moral law that we have violated. Mourning, although painful, can help us align our hearts with the heart of God: “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” (Matthew 5:4). More Here
