Waiting For Our Redemption

A Time to Live

Melody Hendrix

 

The words below are not mine and although I was unable to source some of these quotes,   I wanted to share them. Unless a source is listed, the source is unknown.

“It is our own mental attitude which makes the world what it is for us. Our thoughts make things beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly. We are what we think.”

“People where created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos, is because things are being loved, people are being used.”

“People at war with themselves will always cause collateral damage in the lives of those around them. “John Mark Green

“If you want to understand any problem in America, you need to focus on who profits from that problem, not who suffers from the problem.” Dr Amos Wilson

“Greed is not a financial issue. It’s a heart issue.” Andy Stanley

I feel that most people have pure hearts, good intentions and live a Christian spiritual life. So how is it that the very few heartless lumps of flesh and those of such evil intentions cause so much misery and chaos that even the earth itself groans in pain with us waiting for our redemption.

 

Romans 8:22-23

22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.

I am retired and enjoying life. My hobbies are my 5 grandchildren, son and daughter, and my loving husband. I am a photographer and extreme nature lover. I love spending time in my garden or in the wilderness connected to God my Creator.
