God's Plan for Your Life!

Mom Recorded Herself Getting High On Meth Before Killing Her Kids

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Aide Mendez, 23, is one person whose life was destroyed. Her one year old daughter and her three year old son were cut off from any chance at life, and her boyfriend’s cousin also passed away.  Her boyfriend survived, broken and scarred for life.  The four family members involved in an apparent murder-suicide all died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

The woman who shot her two children, their father and a cousin before committing suicide took video of herself on her iPad as she smoked methamphetamine prior to the killings.  The world is crying out; desperate for answers.  They seek anything and everything to numb the pain, the fear and the rejection they feel from just being alive. There are millions of lives at stake.  But, for those of us who are alive in Christ, we have hope.

It is imperative that now, more than any other time in history, all who claim to be Christians begin to stand up for what we say we believe.  Certainly many of us have been taught that our “religion” is a private matter between us and God.  But the Word of God, the Holy Bible, says otherwise.  “Therefore, we may boldly say: The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” ~Hebrews 13:6  

God does not want us to shrink back or be wimpy about what we believe.  On the other hand, God also does not want us to beat people over the head, He says, "in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect"~1 Peter 3

So what is the right balance?  First, we must let our lives be our testimony.  Stop living a compromised life.  A couple of “white lies” here and there, a little flirting with someone who is not your spouse, having an attitude with someone just because they don’t look like you.  “Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].” ~Romans 12:2

Whether you choose to do these things or not, life will go on.  But, if you make the choice to follow the example that Jesus set for us, you will set yourself on a path so amazing, so wonderful, so joy filled, it will leave you breathless!
