"I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden.
Along with the sunshine,
There’s gotta be a little rain sometimes."
Rose Garden by Lynn Anderson


Sometimes I try to picture God watching us from heaven. He’s probably sitting up there with his head in his hands and reaching for the extra-strength Tylenol. I’m sure with everything going on down here; he must be rethinking the whole creation thing. In two thousand years, the men and women he created have learned absolutely nothing. We’re still listening to the snake that got Adam and Eve into all that trouble; we continue to socialize and intermarry with the pagans, and we’re totally incognito these days because no one can possibly tell us apart from the rest of the world.

As if that isn't enough, Christianity today suffers from several disorders. One is MDD (Multiple Denomination Disorder). We have splintered into so many different denominations and sects that the original host is no longer recognizable. In fact, when you respond “I am a Christian” when asked about your religion, the next question is always “Really? What kind?” Another is SHD (Selective Hearing Disorder). We all suffer with this one, some more than others. It is always an eye opener when we’re driving home from church and everyone is discussing the message. As I listen to what everyone thought they heard, I often wonder if we were actually in the same service. My favorite is the IWIN (I Want It Now) disorder. Talk about a bunch of whining, complaining brats. God is not into instant gratification. He never said it was going to be easy. In fact, he said quite the opposite. And yet we still act like we've been betrayed when trials hit us. So when you get a bunch of Christians with MDD, SHD and IWIN, you can understand why the Church is in trouble.

Go back to your Word, and this time, ask God to help you read with understanding instead of putting your own spin on it.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Wow, tough hearing, but so true.It reminds me of the words that Jesus spoke to His disciples in John 16. Some things were hard to hear but in the end Jesus said "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world" (John 16:33). We have to listen to what Jesus said, some of it may be hard to hear at first, but listen to the whole message and you will find hope in His words.
