Thankful Thursdays

Wow, what the heck? People are being crazy and cruel. Some are ruining whatever they’re passionate about with negative and hurtful behavior, instead of turning all that energy into right action. Who or what are they letting rule their inner voice? You know, the voice – conscience – that God-given gift that guides us and motivates us to do [albeit sometimes reluctantly] what is right and good. For me, sometimes a soft whisper is all I need. Other times, depending on my thoughts, a loud scream that I just can’t ignore. But watching the crazies these days, it seems like they are tuned in to a different frequency all together. What a shame.

I admit that it [my conscience] can be a little confusing, and that can weaken me. But the Holy Spirit, in which I so strongly believe, is what keeps my Jiminy Cricket in check. And for that, I am so thankful.

Who or what are you letting rule your conscience? And what are you thankful for today?

“You can spend your time arguing about national politics or getting involved in your local government. One pleases the ego, the other makes a difference.”
K. Eschenroeder

“Don’t cut your conscience to fit this year’s fashions.”
-L. Hellman

“Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind,
that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
– Romans 12:2

  1. That is because a lot of people on BOTH sides of the coin are not interested in creating a dialogue, they just want to create chaos and mayhem and the news media gives them a platform because it creates ratings … I remember Dr. King who was the epitome of grace under pressure. He was a leader. Today there are no leaders. Just mouthpieces and bat-crap crazies … You would think racism and xenophobia had no place in today’s society, but nope. What really gets me going are the ones that incite, spew hatred and vitriol and then claim they are Christians and “true” Americans. REALLY? Ay ay ay!
