From that night on chains began snapping all over the place.... I find myself imagining all sorts of scenarios where God is using me to help lost and hurting souls.... No sense at all that I am crossing an invisible line such as me should never cross.... No sense at all of unworthiness....
Because satans lies were being exposed.... I began to see and find things out even before that night.... Such as how hurt and confused my mother was over the course of those early years....
One night in early 2010.... I was in church and Pastor Francis was saying "It doesn't matter what has hold of you.... Jesus can save you from it.... It doesn't matter what vice you struggle with.... He can deliver you from it.... It doesn't matter if it is drugs or alcohol or tobacco...."
And my heart caught fire....
Not literally.... I just knew that word about tobacco was for me.... I had tossed the last in my pack out half smoked.... Thinking for the billionth
I went to the laundromat friday with loads and loads of laundry to do.... We pull up just as "Jesus Saves" by Jeremy Camp comes on.... I do as I have always done since the second or third time I heard it.... I turned it up full blast and rolled the windows down.... While my son took the clothes in the mat I sat and watched to see if anyone hearing it would approach me.... Not that I had any idea (outside of "Jesus Saves!") of what to say.... I figured the Lord would put the words
The Complaining Heart
Hush now, my complaining heart, be silent!
Desist this pounding, pounding in my ears!
Must your ill tempered beat be so violent
To bang its war drums announcing my fears?
Retrieve your molten anger from my face.
It burns with the hatred which I abhore,
And leads down the path to my disgrace;
A path I've traveled many times before.
Beat! Beat in time with God's sweet charity!

1 Thessalonians 4:16, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout”
It was just one man’s opinion and an educated guess at that. Given all the scientific data at his disposal, a scientist stated many years ago that an earthquake of disastrous proportions was quite imminent in the state of Missouri. On the basis of his prediction, thousands of people stocked up on supplies, schools were closed, and residents practiced emergency procedures.
