Scotland Voting to secede the UK Union?

Democratic Scotland Voting to secede from the UK?

Let’s hope PM Cameron doesn’t start a Civil War to keep them from doing so…

Because what President, PM or Country would be STUPID enough do that?

Launch a war that kills 800,000 people to keep them from legally  doing what they want to do.

Huh?

Lord’s Day: My Utmost. “…you have to obey it clear”

Imagination V. Inspiration

Simplicity is the secret of seeing things clearly. A saint does not think clearly for a long while, but a saint ought to see clearly without any difficulty. You cannot think a spiritual muddle clear, you have to obey it clear. In intellectual matters you can think things out, but in spiritual matters you will think yourself into cotton wool. If there is something upon which God has put His pressure, obey in that matter, bring your imagination into captivity to the obedience of Christ with regard to it and everything will become as clear as daylight. The reasoning capacity comes afterwards, but we never see along that line, we see like children; when we try to be wise we see nothing (Matthew 11:25).

The tiniest thing we allow in our lives that is not under the control of the Holy Spirit is quite sufficient to account for spiritual muddle, and all the thinking we like to spend on it will never make it clear. Spiritual muddle is only made plain by obedience. Immediately we obey, we discern. This is humiliating, because when we are muddled we know the reason is in the temper of our mind. When the natural power of vision is devoted to the Holy Spirit, it becomes the power of perceiving God’s will and the whole life is kept in simplicity.

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest

What Most People Don’t Know About Eggs

mike and brandy:

All,
This is where your eggs come from. Please consider removing Eggs from your Table.

Did you make the switch from regular eggs, to “cage-free” eggs? It may sound like the chickens get to run free in the fields all day, but they don’t. So what does “cage-free” really mean?

Companies are using marketing terms to make you believe that “cage-free” hens are living under better conditions. But do they? Well, cage-free does, in fact, mean that the situations are improved, but just by how much?

This video below mentions that cage-free eggs are much more sterile, and humans have a smaller risk of getting a salmonella infection. With the importance of animal welfare currently rising in popularity, things do seem to be shifting for the better. Though, is it enough?

But, this next video makes it very clear that cage-free is not as great as you really think it is. A poultry farmer explains the real difference. It turns out, the chickens are still held in industrial factory farms:

We are meant to flow as God provides

“Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” Jesus, John 4:13-14

I thought that I was pretty tough.  Hey, after all I was born in a third world country. But I guess I’ve forgotten my roots because since I got back to Honduras a little over a month ago, there’s this one thing that I keep doing constantly…

Complaining.

I know in Philippians 2:14 it says “do everything without complaining”.  I love being that missionary guy that wears sack cloth and carries nothing but the trust in God. I love being that missionary guy that goes door to door preaching hope and still beaming with compassion and love even after being shooed away.

I am not that kind of missionary.

Just not.

I’m going to be honest, I am not selfless, humble, strong, pure nor compassionate enough to be a good missionary. I work with this wonderful ministry that cares for 105 Honduran children that have had challenges in…
