God’s Little Nugget: Day 11

HiltlerMy husband loves to read and or watch documentaries on war.  As a result, I’ve found myself watching documentaries on certain wars and people of interest.  And the person that sparks my curiosity is Hitler.

Hitler was to have been among the world’s greatest orators and evil should also be added to his strong and warped personality traits when discussing him and his actions.

I believe he rose to power because of jealousy.  As why it was so easy for him to convince a nation of people that felt they were entitled.  Their greed and or laziness made them believe it was okay to kill Jews, people with disabilities and old folks.

To make matters worse, those individuals that went along with Hitler felt comfortable in plundering their victims personal possession after sentencing them to a life of torture and later death.  With that said, you would think what happen decades ago would influence how we treat people today.  Not.

Right here in America we have people that are being treated the same as the Jews from that horrid moment in time.

After watching documentaries and reading books about “man’s inhumanity to man” I’ve conclude evilness go hand in hand with delusion and denial.

So often dark hearted individuals are suspicious and jealous of joyful people.  Their evil mindset keep them from truly enjoying life and what they don’t understanding they tag as a threat.

Give them a wide birth.  Enjoy your life.  They will eventually fall on their own swords.

The Prayer’s of Black Women: What Does It Mean to Trust You Lord?

Dear Lord:

Your word says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”  My prayer today is about what does it mean to trust in you?  Or should I pray for answers to the following questions:  How does a person trust in you Lord?  Does this passage support our free will ?  And how does it support common sense?

Lord my questions are not original (although I wish they were).  But  many before me have asked the same during moments of spiritual isolation.  And, sadly, so many after me will pose the same question(s) during moments of uncertainty.  So, Lord, again, I ask what does it mean to trust in you?  Because sometimes Lord I’m afraid those that believe in you fail to know what it means to truly trust in you.

And for that reason Lord, I am asking that you help us to know what you mean in this passage.   Help us to merge the wisdom of God with our instinct to spiritually and physically survive.  Help us to refrain from blaming you when things don’t go as planned and according to our interpretation of your words.  Help us to accept defeat as well as our victories during moments of spiritual growth.  So, Lord, I ask again, help us to truly know what it means to trust in you.  Amen.

Your Loving Daughter
