John 17:15

Would Facebook or Twitter censor Jesus?

Have a great day!

arlin report thought(s) of the day: who is that knocking at my door? do i let him in?


Are you willing to answer the Door?

I may or may not be speaking from a literal sense. I believe I am not……..as the door could be your mind, or most likely your soul.

If (or when) the antichrist knocks on your door, will you answer? Will you recognize him? He may knock (on your soul). You may answer. But……will you let him in? He is/will be deceitful, powerful, and hateful. I pray I will recognize him for who and what he is. I pray I will recognize him in the moment. I pray I will not let him in.

god……are we leaving him out during this time?


metta prayer for world healing
It’s the prayer, it does not matter the source

I know some never include God in their lives, as they either are non-believers or they blame him for our hard times. This COVID-19 could be one of those times, especially when we’ve not seen anything like this in most (any) of our lifetimes.

I was thinking about people quarantined, those that are ill and just about everyone, all of us. I haven’t heard much about people speaking of prayer or God. Maybe you’d say “that’s because I don’t discuss it, I just do it.” Or “I’ve been too busy trying to take care of my family”. Or “I can’t pray to God, I blame Him”. I am sure there is some of that.

I’ve thought about this for a couple of days now, it just seems to me many of us haven’t included God in on what we are going through, a time we may need Him the most. I may be thinking that way because I know a lot of the church masses/services aren’t being held…..due to congregation bans. Even that word seems to have a different meaning now. No, I don’t expect everyone to go on YouTube and broadcast your prayer time. I could be wrong about all this, it just seems this way to me and it’s been on my mind.

I believe there are materials, sources and resources on this planet that are solutions to problems like disease, literally everything we face. They are here for a reason, and they were planted by God for us to discover, use and consume. It wasn’t by accident, Amen to that!

Jesus Always — Three Iron Nails


When anxiety is great within you, turn to Me for consolation. Other words for “consolation” are comfort, compassion, empathy, help, encouragement, reassurance, and relief. I gladly provide all of this—and much more—for My children. Yet your natural tendency when you’re feeling anxious is to focus on yourself or your problems. The more you do this, […]

Jesus Always — Three Iron Nails

I don’t think it was an accident that I found this particular post, during a moment I was feeling impatience, some anger, and maybe a bit of self pity. I must have been searching for something, as I was also thinking I haven’t spoken to God much lately, especially when I needed him the most. I remembered too I hadn’t thanked the Lord that my prostate surgery (a little over a week ago) had gone perfectly and that my pathology report showed I was now cancer free. It was confined in the prostate and had not spread anywhere else. While I was extremely grateful, I hadn’t spoken to God, and realized it during my moment of impatience and anger. Then I felt guilty.

I came to my computer to search for information in addition to what my doctor has advised because of my feelings. Why do I feel impatient, angry, and annoyed? I am experiencing these feelings during my early recovery period, which is about 4-5 weeks. I won’t go into detail, except there are some inconveniences, annoying body malfunctions that should improve over time, but like I said I am impatient. I also know it could take a year to improve and I may never be 100% again. See how easy it is to feel sorry for yourself? I feel ashamed as there are children suffering from cancer and many will not survive, yet I am bothered by this INCONVENIENCE. These inconveniences are normal things you deal with following prostate surgery. But, things I haven’t dealt with before. I am dealing with it and it won’t last forever, I just don’t have much patience. It isn’t one of my greatest attributes.

I do thank God for being one of the fortunate ones. I pray for everyone suffering from cancer and other disease. How quickly we can forget that God never leaves us. But we must call on him, call His name to praise Him, to thank Him, and yes to ask for help, if only for patience and strength. I don’t think it was an accident I found this post “Jesus Always” – (Thank you to Three Iron Nails) just moments after these feelings and possibly doubt. I needed a reminder. The Lord delivered!
