"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love." (1 John 4:18)
God, himself, assures every believer of His Eternal Guarantee of "Safe and Secure"! I am very certain that those with whom I have had the pleasure to share some of this life, are just that now. I stand on the promise that says, "Love One Another", will get me there also. I do not need further assurance than that. I live with my daughter and her daughter. I have weekly care for three hours daily from caring Angels. They do it as a labor of Love. My entire life is spent loving others. I learned that from my father. "We" have allowed ourselves to be 'taken advangtage of', even if it was painful, for the very reason that our Lord Jesus Christ did the same. Being a "pushover" has its rewards, Donchaknow, Really. Mistakes and all, Sam and Jim Austin were "covered". My children know of that inheritance. They were daily witnesses of honest labor of love.
We are experiencing life at its "bumpiest". Savage hearts are at play. The party in charge will continue to play our their political spite to no avail. Those who practice laws of abomination and hatred will reap the proverbial whirlwind. For me and my family of believers, we shall sail away, safe and secure from all the detritus resulting of others efforts that deviate from Truth!
I do not wish to know what Donald J Trump is planning. I am certain, should he continue to do as God would have him do, his course will work for the good of us all. Pretenders persist with pitiful performance. All we who are Children of a Holy God will win in the end since, "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love."
And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.
