“Joan of Arc” in mind
Psalm 11 – In the Lord I put my trust;
How can you say to my soul,
“Flee as a bird to your mountain”?
2 For look! The wicked bend their bow,
They make ready their arrow on the string,
That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart.
3 If the foundations are destroyed,
What can the righteous do?
4 The Lord is in His holy temple,
The Lord’s throne is in heaven;
His eyes behold,
His eyelids test the sons of men.
5 The Lord tests the righteous,
But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.
6 Upon the wicked He will rain coals;
Fire and brimstone and a burning wind
Shall be the portion of their cup.

Every little detail of the Bible is available for review by any man, woman, or child to be tested and either denied, accepted, and/or activated. There are some who are unable to even contemplate the written word of God let alone find a safe place to hear it. GOD knows, Child. God knows. Some honestly don’t care. Who are we to tell them “You must do this and that!!”. God wants us to make our choices based on our free will not by what someone else thinks should happen. (Hey, writing that out was easier than I thought it would be). All of us, at one point or another, think we are God and think we understand more than we actually even know. [#Truth] Been there; done that. Continue reading
