On your mark. Get ready. Get Set. Go! How many times have we often heard these words declared? Well for me it’s a charge to keep. Yesterday my pastor PREACHED a powerful message about the power of the tongue. And the fact that we have authority to speak our future into existence was a revelation out of this world. I heard that phrase before, but how he explained it is definitely liberating.
From now on….literally the rest of my life. I must recognize the power that God has given me through the use of my tongue. Never sway from operating in my authority and declare HIS WORD over every situation that I face.
Proverbs 18:1 “Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. ”
Speak life. Speak life. Speak life.
I Timothy 2:1-2 (NLT) I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. As you make your requests, plead for God’s mercy upon them, and give thanks. 2 Pray this way for kings and all others who are in authority, so that we can live in peace and quietness, in godliness and dignity.
Jesus said in Matthew 25:35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.

I’m reading this article on CNN about parents dropping their children off at various locations in Nebraska….mesmerized. http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/11/14/nebraska.safe.haven/index.html?iref=newssearch YOU MUST READ THIS STORY
I’ll admit as a parent it can be extremely difficult. However, the thought of leaving my child with total strangers is disturbing. How can it be? Children didn’t ask to come here. Many were born out the will of two adults.
Yes, there are things that happen such as rape. I don’t wish that upon anyone. But for the majority of births two grown folks knew exactly were they were doing. There must be other options for parents to avoid these beautiful gifts to the world being left without the certainty of care and compassion of a responsible adult.
Below are a few alternatives that come to mind about this awful trend that’s taking place as possible options for parents and guardians:
1. Speak with a church in Nebraska about available caretakers.
2. Speak with a church in Nebraska about residential services for a home if needed.
3. Speak with a church in Nebraska about financial assistance to continue provision of basic necessities.
4. Speak with a church in Nebraska about referral services.
5. Speak with a church in Nebraska regarding temporary options through any Health & Human Service agencies
