Don’t invest in politics, the television screen or the screamers who work at turning the Western world upside down. Invest in eternity and how—hard as it may be—you can make it there

No Matter Who or Where You Are, Someone Waits for You

Don’t wait until someone falls gravely ill to pray for them.  Pray every day for other people in the most sincere way of them all: prayers fervently offered on your knees in the privacy of silence, with no one but the Creator even knowing that you are at prayer.

Keep a generic prayer for strangers close to your lips: ’For any and all of those in trouble at this particular time”.

We all struggle through life on earth in the Valley of Tears where there is always someone in trouble, in need of prayer.

Pray for strangers no matter how far away with a hopeful prayer that they may also be praying for you.

Prayers, when offered fervently, always come back to you.

Akin to the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s ‘The Arrow and the Song:

“I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

“I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

“Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.”

Don’t wait for someone else to lead you in prayer.  When it comers to something as important as prayer, you are your own leader.

“A group of senators prayed together Wednesday night after learning that Arizona Sen. John McCain had been diagnosed with a brain tumor, according to one of the lawmakers. (Fox News, July 19, 2017)

“Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., said he asked Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., who has a master’s degree in divinity, to lead the group in prayer.”

It’s wonderful to have a master’s degree in divinity but it doesn’t take one to lead a group in prayer.

The nightly bedside prayers of a child, the prayers of an unschooled person talking directly to God, are every bit as powerful.

In spite of the ridicule they faced, the evangelicals who laid their hands on President Donald Trump bestowed upon him a powerful gift—particularly if they continued to pray for him after leaving the White House.

Catholics floundering in their faith because the current pope seems more interested in the politics of Social Justice rather than the Gospel, should never give up on their faith, but instead go straight over his head, directly to Jesus Christ.

Ditto for Protestants who depend on pastors for salvation.

Though so many seem to ignore it, the Creator of all life didn’t just give wings to the birds and the butterflies.  He gave us all wings in helping us to make our way to Him.

Ignoring all allegiance to the Almighty, the pop culture of the day, tromps firmly on the wings of mankind.

Getting out from under the culture starts by finding the wings the Creator gave you allowing you to send your soul soaring sky high.

Turn the counter-culture era phrase by Timothy Leary, “Turn on, tune in, drop out” from the gathering of 30,000 hippies in 1966, in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco inside out, converting it over to the good. 

The good is there if you are willing to look for it.

Tune out on the talking heads of the media, start off each new day by letting the Creator’s orchestra of birdsong begin it.


The chattering of birdsong is so much more eloquent than that of social media like Twitter.

Bask in the Good Night the Almighty sends by signing off day with heavenly stars.

Don’t stop there.

Sign yourself in each morning with the Sign of the Cross: ‘In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit”.  Sign yourself out as the last thing you do before falling asleep at night.

Pray as much as possible throughout the day even if your prayer is a short one.  “Thank You God for your Creation”.

Pray for your family and friends and ask them to pray for you.

Ignore naysayers, media scribes and pharisees that ridicule you between sips of cafe lattes.  We all live in the Valley of Tears, from which there is no known escape.  Politicians and MSM do, too.  They just don’t realize it.

In the Valley of Tears we must all live through, everything seems alright, then one day doctors tell you that you have a particularly aggressive type of brain cancer.

Remember the one truth that a happy-go-lucky, hedonistic media cannot possibly deny you.

No matter who you are; no matter where you are, Someone waits for you. Whichever state you happen to be in upon arrival is up to you.

Rich or poor, fat or thin, handsome or not, He is there, has always been and always will be

Rich or poor, fat or thin, handsome or not, He is there, has always been and always will be.

At the end of the day in the Valley of Tears, we hurry home to someone who’s waiting.  It may be a husband, wife, children or even a pet, to whom you continue to want to rush back home.

The joy of thinking of whomever waits for you at home is beyond human comprehension when applied to that ‘Someone’  who is waiting at the end of your days on Earth.

It is indeed discouraging and depressing to see the visceral hatred on display by all of those who want to rid America of its duly elected president.

But all things are passing, including the vitriol of a Fake News MSM.

Don’t invest in politics, the television screen or the screamers who work at turning the Western world upside down.

Invest in eternity and how—hard as it may be—you can make it there.

If you want your president, don’t count on the media changing course to tell the truth about him; don;t count on self-serving politicians supposedly on his side, who won’t lift a finger to help him, pray for him.

If you want to keep your president, pray—and pray profoundly and unceasingly— for him.
