Truth or Lie: Reality Check – I’m Heartsick!

Christians Are Us:

Christians, or maybe you aren’t yet, I want to take this chance to say that I mimik the thoughts that Cheryl says here. I have been feeling the same way for months now, that is why I have started blogging and trying to “train” Christians on how to grow in their new Christian lives.

I read these words today and it makes me cry to think that all of this is true, and yet I know it is true. I share Cheryl’s burden here. If you have read my story, you know that I came from a similar past. Notice that I said that “I came from”… that past is past. It no longer has to be the present and definitely doesn’t have to be the future.

God has changed my life as well. Sometimes, God brings other people into our lives to help keep us in check and give us a reason to get in line and stay in line. My person is my wife! She is my reason that I want to change, besides the fact that I have given my life to Christ and want to please Him instead of anything else. I too, had to give up cigarettes and alcohol and some drugs and many other things that I don’t need to go into here.

My point is that if He can bring me out of it, He can do it for anyone! I mean that with all my heart, that is why I do what I do here on my blog. You see, before I fully gave my life to Christ (yes, I was already saved and doing those things – it can happen), I had become partially paralyzed from the chest down, I’d had 2 broken marriages, and I had just been told that I had terminal cancer. God didn’t do these things to me – I did. My life was terrible and these things proved it.

I was able to start a wonderful new chapter in my life with my new beautiful bride and her 2 kids (mine too now) and the greatest thing about it is that we are all now doing it in God’s power, not our own and we are not doing it for ourselves but for the Lord.

That was a little over 5 years ago. I wasn’t supposed to live that much longer but God has kept me going, and I do it all for Him.

Friends, please, listen to the words on this page and not only with your (ears) eyes but with your hearts. If it points fingers at you, you need to do something about it and get right with God and give HIM your problems and let HIM change your life. He WILL do it but only if you LET Him. Thank you Cheryl for sharing this with us.

Do you ever feel heartsick for the church? I’m not talking about the various places that we visit on Sundays and sometimes through the week. I’m talking about the body of Christ, those people who claim to be children of God. Do you ever feel like picking her up and shaking her? Do you ever get angry and outraged at some of the foolish things she does, because you know that she’s playing with fire, and endangering her own life, as well as the lives of others? Do you ever feel like weeping and wailing and grieving and mourning for her?

I do. My heart weighs heavily on me, and I’m so deeply troubled and grieved for the people who comprise the church. You see, somewhere along the way, many of the men, women and children were taught a lie, and because that lie felt more comfortable…

For those who don’t know, a nonet is 9 syllables on the first line, going down to 8 the next, 7 next, and so on, all the way down to 1 syllable on the last line.

37 “And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
38 “And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said,
Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee
in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive
thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.
