Here is hope, precious addicted soul! My late fiance died at the tender age of 41 (on the very day he was going to propose to me) because of the holes drilled in his heart by the cocaine he was addicted to. The doctors knew immediately what he had done and offered no hope save a heart transplant. Precious soul, seek Jesus for your salvation and deliverance! I know this personally is truth, tried and proven true.
We carry about us always infirmities and corruptions. What use shall we make of them? Not to trust to our own righteousness, which is ‘as a defiled cloth’ (Isa. 64:6), but fly to Christ’s righteousness, which is the righteousness of the God-man, all being as dung and dross in regard of that.
Often think with thyself, What am I? a poor sinful creature, but I have a righteousness in Christ that answers all. I am weak in myself, but Christ is strong, and I am strong in him. I am foolish in myself, but I am wise in him. What I want in myself I have in him. He is mine, and his righteousness is mine, which is the righteousness of the God-man. Being clothed with this, I stand safe against conscience, hell, wrath, and whatsoever. Though I have daily experience of my sins, yet there is more righteousness in…

Covfefe’ (pronounced “cuv – fee- fae”) is an Antediluvian term for “In the end we win.” It was commonly used by the sons of Adam to rail against the evil actions of the fallen who had led man astray.
The term gained popularity prior to the great deluge and was rarely used after the flood subsided. It regained favor around the time Nimrod was building his tower, after which it was entirely lost in translation at Babel.
A few years ago, I and my friends DJ and Sarah, married for 2.25 years, took a road trip to Seattle. We were visiting our respective families, and as a bonus, DJ and I were going to catch a Seahawks game (during what turned out to be their Super Bowl season).
As we drove along a remote highway with the sun just dawning behind us, I remembered that I needed to check something on our online tickets. I’ve never bothered keeping up with the Joneses, so I had no smartphone. I asked DJ if I could borrow his, and I went to Google to type in my mailbox’s address. Well, as you know, when you use Google, it brings up the user’s Google “search history”. Here’s how DJ’s search history looked:
“what to eat while pregnant”
“how to exercise while pregnant”
My mouth dropped open. I showed the screen to DJ with…

“Ah, sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, offspring of evildoers, children who deal corruptly! They have forsaken the Lord, they have despised the Holy One…they are utterly estranged. Hear the word of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom! Give ear to the teaching of our God you people of Gomorrah! When you come to appear before Me, who has required of you this trampling of My courts? When you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I will not listen; your hands are full of blood. (ed. note: abortions)
Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before My eyes; cease to do evil,…If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.” (Isaiah 1: 4,10,12,15-17a, 19)

National Day of Repentance website
Consecrate a fast,
Call a sacred assembly;
Gather the elders
And all the inhabitants of the land
Into the house of the Lord your God,
And cry out to the Lord.
Alas for the day!
For the day of the Lord is at hand;
It shall come as destruction from the Almighty.
“Repent” was the very first word Jesus preached. It’s the key to come into His Kingdom. It’s a privilege and a vital spiritual discipline to purify as a member of His royal priesthood. The Risen Christ calls each of us daily to be zealous to repent so that we can overcome and sit on His throne as He overcame and sits on His Father’s throne. (Revelation 3:19-21)
The need for personal and national repentance has never been more obvious. We need the help of the Lord to resolve our problems in every nation. His strategy needs to be followed: IF His people called by His name humble themselves and pray, seek His face, and turn from their wicked ways, then He will hear from heaven, forgive sin, and heal a land. (2 Chronicles 7:14).
In the United States April 30 has, since 2011, been proclaimed by a growing number of believers as a “national day of repentance” for several reasons: it was the day George Washington “so help me God” was inaugurated in 1789; it was the day set aside by Congress and President Lincoln in 1863 for a “National Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer”; it was the day picked by Oregon Senator Mark Hatfield for the same purpose in 1973; it precedes the first Thursday in May, the National Day of Prayer each year. Placing repentance before prayer is a prerequisite for God to hear our prayers. And this year a call has gone out for a National Day of Worship on April 29, the day before this day of repentance.

America, bless God!
A reminder for me FTA: We must be honest, but your long-simmering annoyance over all things Joel Osteen (and no, I’m not a fan) is not a license to emotionally lambast every slightly misled blogger you just learned existed. If you can’t correct without being abrasive or petty…well, I’m not sure how much credibility a teacher of the Word has when violating one part of Scripture to uphold another, but I can’t imagine much. Win people over with the graciousness of your words.
Trying to draw more traffic to your WordPress blog, Christian? For those trying to build a larger audience (say, to snag a potential publisher), here are five things I’ve found helpful.
1. Go to them
So you start a blog. What then? Drop it in front of Facebook friends and sit back, counting on them to bring you newcomers? That might not work. Your friends are loyal, but not necessarily doctrinally compatible, voracious readers, or oozing spare time out the ears. To widen your base, you’ll need to find new “regulars” who are. And you aren’t going to find them by waiting for them to stumble upon a blog they don’t know exists. You’ll have to go to them.

I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great assembly.-Psalm 40:10
I need not quote to you the old Latin proverb which says that truth is mighty and must prevail. Truth is, and truth shall be. It alone is substance, and must outlast the lapse of ages. Falsehoods are soon swollen to their perfection of development, like the bubbles with rainbow hues which children blow, but they are dispersed as easily as they are fashioned; they are children of the hour, while truth is the offspring and heir of eternity. Falsehood dies, pierced through the heart by the arrows of time, but truth, in her impenetrable mail bids defiance to all foes. Men who love the truth are building gold and silver, and precious stones; and though their…
