Trouble Putting Thoughts Together

I have been wanting to finish the raw milk series, but I am having a difficult time of it. The reason is that I am having trouble focusing on informational articles and furthering my own education because of "things of this world". I am currently consumed, and depressed, with the state of affairs in our once great nation.

I can't seem to get my mind off of certain legislations that are looming down upon farmers and backyard growers, alike.

I fear for my family, as Christians, as this "one world movement" progresses. I see the very real possability that believers will be taken out and shot.

I am trying to buy ammo, but can't because nobody has any.

I am trying to keep my eyes on the Lord, but find myself weak.

I also find myself wrestling between being affraid and living in fear. I can be affraid, but must fear nothing. The victory is won.

The more I listen to the news, the more I fall into this funk. Christ is all and in all, He is my sufficiency. So, I am asking for prayer. Pray that Christ fills my thoughts and directs my paths. Pray that He comes soon. Pray that Obama gets saved (along with the rest of our government).

I apologize for the lack of direction in this post. This is just where my mind is right now. Thanks for listening, but do pray.

Christ warns that these things must happen before the end comes.....rejoice that we are close the the end of the encouraged that we can see prophesy unfolding in our watchful, we can tell the season, he calls us to be is not the time to lay down in despair, but to reach out to the multitudes......even if I can no longer live the agricultural life I desire I can't stand down here and shake my fist at the Lord for his judgment on this country.....all this will pass away.....although I want to fight the oppression....I have to realize it is the Lords judgment on this nation.....Do I fight against the Lord, or do I do what is most important in the end.....For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.......But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.......Is your family saved? Then they are safe. Have you reached out to your extended family, friends, neighbors? Do I put my earthly achievements over and above the soul of another? These are real questions I have to ask myself in this age...... I continue on, but there may be a day when I have to put my agricultural ambitions behind me (although I will continue to grow food no matter), and give up my rights (come Lord Jesus, come), and lose the right to be able to buy and sell, and see brothers and sisters persecuted in this country for their faith (its already here) These things may happen soon. Let us be wise as serpents and innocent as doves in this age. Be encouraged by his word. We have hope of a future.....Praise be to God.
