Happy 8th Birthday, LwL!

Today,
is a special day
here on
Life with Lynnie (LwL).
 
It's
Life with Lynnie's
8th
birthday!
 
 
Happy Birthday
Life with Lynnie!
 
Wow!
For eight (8) years,
LwL
has been active.
 
Now, the ninth (9th) year
has begun.
 
What a blessing!
 
Thinking about how
LwL
has been blessed,
made me think of...
James 1:25,
"But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed."
 
Amen!
 
Even though
Life with Lynnie
is not a man,
LwL
is
a doer of the work...
and shall be
blessed
for doing... 
all...
for...
 God.
 
For this,
I
am truly thankful.
And, always will be.
 
Thank You, Lord!
 
 
Until next time...

It Is!

I'll be discussing something, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL). 

It's something that I realize many people wouldn't care about.  But, I do.

What is it?

It has to do with the problem I'm having on Facebook (FB).

As I've mentioned in the past, FB has been blocking me for a week, about every 2nd week, since the end of September. 

Being blocked means that I am not able to share my blog entries for Life with Lynnie (LwL), on groups I've created, groups I am an administrator for, or any of the other groups I am a member of.  Even though each group is a Christian group, and I am a Christian writer.

For a long time, I didn't have any idea why that was happening. 

Then, as I mentioned previously, I saw and shared articles letting everyone know that the German government has created a law that they told FB about.  You see, FB can be sued if they allow any postings that the German government doesn't like to see.

Sigh...

How could this affect me?  At first, I didn't have any idea.

Later, after finding out that many, many other Christian FB friends were being treated the same way, I realized that FB must feel that Christianity is not acceptable.  Other than saying we love Jesus, which seems okay.

Then, a Christian FB friend who I've known for many years, shared a posting on my FB wall/timeline.  It was shocking, also!

I am sharing the article with you.  It's by cbc.ca and is entitled, Federal government blocking social media users, deleting postshttp://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/twitter-facebook-socialmedia-porn-1.4394127

If you read the article, you'll know what I'm sharing with you (I copied/pasted):

Canadian government departments have quietly blocked nearly 22,000 Facebook and Twitter users, with Global Affairs Canada accounting for nearly 20,000 of the blocked accounts, CBC News has learned.

Moreover, nearly 1,500 posts — a combination of official messages and comments from readers — have been deleted from various government social media accounts since January 2016.

However, there could be even more blocked accounts and deleted posts. In answer to questions tabled by Opposition MPs in the House of Commons, several departments said they don't keep track of how often they block users or delete posts.

It is not known how many of the affected people are Canadian.

It's also not known how many posts were deleted or users were blocked prior to the arrival of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government.
But the numbers shed new light on how Ottawa navigates the world of social media — where it can be difficult to strike a balance between reaching out to Canadians while preventing government accounts from becoming a destination for porn, hate speech and abuse.

Sigh...

Believe me when I say that on FB... my postings have never been deleted.  I've only been prevented/blocked from being able to share postings, as I mentioned, previously.

Even so, some FB friends had told me that some of their postings had been deleted.  So, they must have been deleted by our Canadian government.

Sigh...

This just confirms to me that there are people in our Canadian government who also hate Christians.  Much like what we see happens in USA.

Are you shocked I said that? 

Well, please don't be.  Just click on this link to see a video on YouTube entitled, BREAKING:  BERNIE SANDERS LASHES OUT ON CHRISTIAN WHEN HE REFUSES TO DENY FAITH TO CONGRESS:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2n_5F873JU.

Hopefully, you clicked on that link, and watched the entire video.  If you did, you'll know that I am again speaking truth, regarding Christians being hated.

Christians being hated, are actually suffering persecution.  But, it's okay.

Just as we read, in Matthew 5:10, "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

Amen! 

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven!

That means that we can know for sure that even though some of us Christians are being hated and being persecuted, we are being treated that way, because we truly belong to God, who we will someday be with in the kingdom of Heaven.

Being hurt isn't easy. 

But, God is good.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...

Worship & More!

This is another time when I will let you know, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) about how busy my weekend was!

Yes, as you hopefully read, you'll know that on Friday evening, I attended an event at a friend's church.  Then, on Saturday evening, I attended an event at another friend's church.

Now, I'm going to let you know that on Saturday, I also worked hard, making an extremely large amount of pasta salad.

Hopefully, you won't mind that I am not going to give you the recipe on how to make it.  But, I will let you know that I made a lot, because on SONday, I needed to bring a large amount of food to... two (2) church events!

Of course, the first (1st) church event was attending where I have been worshiping.  First Baptist Church does not yet have it's own website, but here is a link, for you to read about it:  http://swoda.uwindsor.ca/node/2043.

After our worship service, we all enjoyed a pot-luck luncheon.  It was truly a blessing spending time with everyone. 

Although, I felt badly that a friend of mine, wasn't there, due to being ill.  So, please... join me in prayer that, J... will be healed, quickly.  Thank you!  Blessings...

After seeing some family members, I made my way to where Pastor Brad Mayer was worshiping with fellow Christians

Here's a link, for you to read about Bible Community Church, even though the address is now different:  http://biblecommunitychurchofwindsor.webstarts.com/.  If you want information, feel free to e-mail Pastor Brad Mayer.

Just so you know, in the past, I used to worship with this church group, in addition to where I worshipped, many years ago.  Just so you know, I did it to assist Pastor Brad Mayer.  And, for a while, he had me as the music person.  :)

This worship service has almost always been at 4:00 p.m., so it seemed good to try and join in to worship there, again.  And, they were also going to have a pot-luck meal, afterwards... so, I brought pasta salad, there also!  Mmmm... thank you!  That meal was also delicious! 

I must admit, it was truly a blessing being there to worship!

Not just because I knew Pastor Brad Mayer.  But, also because I knew a couple of people who worship there, now!  :)

Plus, the worship service was a true blessing!  For this, I praised God.

Thinking of this, made me think of Psalm 146:1, "Praise ye the Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul."

Amen!  Praise Ye, Lord!  

It truly touched my heart being with this church group, again.  Even though there were some people I had never met before, in the past.

It was truly a blessing to me.

Thank you, Pastor Brad Mayer.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...

Music & Prayer...

If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday, then you'll know I attended a church event.

Well, I also attended another church event on the evening of Saturday, November 18th!  Click on this link, to find out about The Gathering Churchhttps://www.tgcw.org/.

Once again, I must say that it wasn't an event held where I worship on SONdays.  It was an event that another Christian friend of mine had invited me to, on Facebook (FB)!

This event was an evening of music, and prayer.

What a wonderful event it was for me to attend!  I was so thankful, being invited.  Thank you, D!

Just so you know, D also let me know that he needs to find a place to live.  For some reason, he's basically without somewhere to call... home.

Sigh...

This truly touched my heart.  I prayed with D, at the end of the event.  And, later asked some Christians if they knew where D could have as a new address.

By the way, if you know anyone or anywhere in Windsor, Ontario, Canada that is available for D to live, please e-mail me, and I'll be happy to pass the information on to, D.

After all, I want to be able to help, D... find what he needs.  After all, since he is a Christian partially disabled friend, I hope to do good for him.

This brought to mind, Hebrews 13:16, "But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased."

Amen!  To do good and communicate, God is well pleased.


Another way of pleasing God, would be to pray for, D.


So, please... join me in prayer.  Thank you for praying.


May God bless you!



Until next time...

Blessed!

There's something I need to tell you about, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  It's what I did on Friday, November 17, 2017.

It was a busy day for me.  However, I was able to attend an event I was invited to, in the evening.

The event was at Banwell Community Church.  Here's a link for you to check out this place of worship:  http://banwellchurch.org/.

Did I go there on Friday evening, to worship?  No.

My friend, D who works there, had placed on Facebook (FB) an invitation to the event.  It was an event where a movie was shown.

The Christian movie was entitled, Paper Angels.  Please click on this link, to check it out:  https://www.christianfilmdatabase.com/review/paper-angels/.

I have to admit, it was wonderful for me to go and attend that movie event!

Yes, the movie was wonderful.  Especially, since it was a Christian film.

However, it made me feel good to attend watching the movie.

Why?

Because, everyone who attended had to bring either a financial donation, or a donation of some food, to be given to those who are in need of assistance.

This truly touched my heart, and made me feel that I and all who attended, would be blessed helping those in need.

Thinking of this, made me think of Proverbs 22:9, "He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor."

Amen!

It is so important to help those who truly need assistance in feeding them.  After all, those in need may be considered poor, since they are receiving gifts.

But, God blesses everyone who giving to them.

Just in case you want to know, I truly enjoyed the movie.

Hopefully, you will... also!


Until next time...

True Colors

From time to time, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), there is something I do. 

Especially on our day of worship.  Like today!

You can probably guess what I'm referring to.

Music!  Because we can worship through music!

There's a song I've known for a long time, that I haven't shared with you, here on LwL, because it truly wasn't Christian music.  Even so, I decided to share it with you, because I could relate to our Lord, even so.

I hadn't heard it in a while.  However, a Facebook (FB) friend of mine, shared it on Google+, and I was able to listen to it.

The song was written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly, and is sung on this link with lyrics for you to see, by Cyndi Lauper.  It's called, True Colorshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7xjYeWOhbU.  Just so you know, my FB friend shared a different link, that I found to be beautiful, but since it didn't lyrics on the link, I didn't share it; here it is, if you'd like to listen to it:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=39&v=PR3Rzmr9Iqg.  The lyrics are below.

True Colors

You with the sad eyes
Don't be discouraged
Oh I realize
It's hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

Show me a smile then,
Don't be unhappy, can't remember
When I last saw you laughing

If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I'll be there

And I'll see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

[Whisper:] Can't remember, when I last saw you laugh.

If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I'll be there

And I'll see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors
True colors are shining through

I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow.


I see true colors in people.  Yes, I see the true color of love within people.

Thinking of this, made me think of 1 John 4:18, "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love."

Those who I have known who have the true color of love, have the love of God within them.

Yet, some people don't feel that way.  Some people have fear. 

As we read in today's Bible verse, there is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment.  He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

How are we made perfect in love?

By loving God.  Who we love, because He first loved us.

I love God.

Do you?

War...

Do you have any idea what I'll discuss today, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL)?

If you read LwL often, you'll probably understand that even though I don't do this, every single Saturday, I do it often.

What is it?

I discuss... movies!

Here are some movies I've recently watched:

Battle of Britain, starring Michael Caine, Christopher Plummer and many, many, many other actors.  Please... click on this link, so you can check out this British Second World War filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Britain_(film).  Knowing this was a WW2 movie, I was happy to see it!

Hanover Street, starring Harrison Ford, Lesley-Anne Down and Christopher Plummer.  If you'd like to check out this Anglo-American wartime romantic film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanover_Street_(film).  Even though this movie was about WW2, I truly enjoyed it!

The Devil's Brigade, starring William Holden, Cliff Robertson and many, many other actors.  Want to check out this American DeLuxe Color war film?  If so, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Devil%27s_Brigade_(film).  I must admit, I enjoyed this movie!

*  Alamo Bay, starring Amy MadiganEd Harris and Ho Nguyen.  To check out this drama film about a Vietnam war veteran, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alamo_Bay.  Even though movies about veterans can be sad, I enjoyed this movie.

The Dirty Dozen, starring Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Charles Bronson and many, many other actors.  Here is a link for you to click on, to check out this American war filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dirty_Dozen.  I enjoyed this movie, and all the actors in it!

Knowing that Remembrance Day here in Canada, and Veteran's Day in USA was on November 11th, I watched a lot of movies that related to war.  Not all were of the same war, but the American movie channels had many war films. 

For this, I was truly thankful. 

So, that's why I decided to share them with you.

Thinking about how my dad, and other relatives participated in the WW2 Normandy Invasion, my heart was truly touched. 

After all, war can be fearful. 

Thinking of those who fought to protect Freedom, for many people in many countries, truly touches my heart.  Especially, since many people looked to our God, to help them.

This made me think of Deuteronomy 20:1, "When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the Lord thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt."

Amen!  Many people went against enemies, during various wars.  And, even though some people were nervous, they were not truly afraid, for God was with them.

Hallelujah!

Even so, I feel badly that many people lost their lives.

Hopefully, they trusted in/believed upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  For, if they did... then they would have gained salvation. And, will spend eternity with Him, in Heaven.

Just as I will do, when my life, here on earth... ends.

Will I see you in Heaven?

Hopefully, so.


Until next time...

Truth & Satan Lucifer...

There's something I need to discuss, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  It's not something I wrote.  It's something someone else wrote.

It refers to both the Bible and the Qur'an.  Referring to meaning about both Christianity, and Islam.

Here's what I saw the person share as a posting (I copied/pasted):

SHOCKING! The Quran admits that Allah is Satan Lucifer!
Find out what you DON'T KNOW about what you believe.
The truth will SHOCK YOU! Muslims...you'll never b...e the same again if you are honest!
The Great Deceiver Allah from Quran is the SAME PERSON with Satan (Lucifer) The Great Deceiver from Bible! https://ok.ru/video/10666968472

Isaiah 14
12. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13. For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohim: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15. Yet thou shalt be brought down to HELL, to the sides of the pit.
___________________________
- Now, the word "Lucifer" means light bearer. The symbol for islam is the moon and the star, both present on most islamic flags, and upon minarets and mosques. (☾☆)
The moon is a bearer of light, which means that it has not emit his own light, but wearing, that reflects sunlight. Technically the moon it’s a “Lucifer”. -

If the Bible has been changed or has been corrupted, then that would mean the Quran is corrupt as well, since it is a confirmation of the Scriptures which came before it: Quran 10:37. Therefore, the Bible is truth, and the Quran is a lie. "Add thou not unto His Words, lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar."
(Proverbs 30:6) ~ See Also Revelation 22:18-19 ~ Muslims have been deceived by the greatest of all deceivers himself. Muslims, must repent and turn to Jesus Christ for the salvation of their soul before its too late! Jesus' Hebrew name is Yeshua, which literally means "salvation".
Those who have Him, have salvation. Those who do not, will perish in their sin and go to hell forever and ever. Jesus says: "I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I AM He, ye shall die in your sins." (John 8:24)
For all those Muslims who say that they love Jesus (Isa), listen to what He says:
"Jesus answered and said unto him: If a man love Me, he will KEEP My Words: and My Father will love him, and We will come unto him, and make Our abode with him. He that loveth Me not, keepeth not My sayings: and the Word which ye hear is not Mine, but the Father's which sent Me." (John 14:23-24)
Why is this so important?
"And if any man hear My Words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth Me, and receiveth not My Words, hath one that judgeth him: The Word [Bible] that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day." (John 12:47-48)


Find out what you DON'T KNOW about what you believe. The truth will SHOCK YOU! Muslims...you'll never be the same again if you are honest! The Great…

Wow!

Hopefully, you can see that I copied and pasted the entire posting, including the picture.

Here's a copy of the link available for you to see, on YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLoUq8vybzY.

Please, watch the video.

If you do, you will understand truth. 

Truth about our Christian God and what He's told us.  And, truth about what the Islamic god told everyone.

Thinking about truth, made me think of John 17:17, "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth."

Amen!  We need to be legitimate.  We need to speak truth, for Thy Word is truth.

What is Thy Word?  The Bible!

Please, take all the time needed to not only check out this posting.  Do all that you can, to research, and you will learn truth.

May God bless you.

Lithuanian Cell Phone Scammers!

There is something I need to discuss, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's not something great.  But, it is something that seems to be happening to people, and not just me.  After all, we are truly living in perilous times.

In the past, I've been approached by scammers

Yes, while on Facebook (FB).  However, not just on FB.

A while ago, I used to get faxed by scammers.  That faxing used to happen mainly in the middle of the night, where I live.

Those faxes wanted me to pay them money.

On FB, I've had some scammers who want the same thing, but did things by chatting, and not faxing.  Most of those people pretended to be someone other than who they truly are.

Then, on Wednesday, November 8th, 2017, I had something else happen.

At first, I didn't know who the person was who had called me on my cell phone.  But, I was glad I didn't get to answer the call, and saw it was a phone number that I hadn't ever known.

I thought I'd call back, but because I realized the country phone number was unknown to me, I searched on the internet.

Guess what I found?  I saw a link to an article that I decided to share with you, after I clicked on the link, and read it.

Here is the link to the article entitled, Mobile users targeted by phone scam involving Lithuanian numbershttp://www.thejournal.ie/phone-scam-lithuania-798200-Feb2013/.

Hopefully, you read the article.  If you did, you'll know it stated (I copied/pasted):

SEVERAL MOBILE PHONE users have reported being targeted by a phone scam involving calls from Lithuanian numbers.

Last night, Irish mobile users with 087 numbers received short or missed calls from a number starting with +37, the Lithuanian country code.

It emerged last month that mobile users were targeted by a Slovenian premium number scam which tried to encourage users to return the call and run up high charges.

Sigh...

Yes, the article was written in February, 2013.  However, it is still an article that is honest, even though we are in November 2017.  Meaning close to almost five (5) years!

Can you imagine how awful it is that for almost five (5) years, scammers have been treating people in a sinful way.  They have been doing fraud, and have been hurting others, to benefit themselves.

Those who are fraudulently scamming people are very different than people who are of my Lord, for they are not.

Scammers are of their father, the devil.

Just as we read, in John 8:44, "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

Amen.  That's exactly what Satan, the devil was like.  And, it matches totally, what scammers are like.  So, they truly belong to Satan, and not to God.

I must admit that I feel upset and sad, for I hate being scammed, in any way, or even having someone trying to scam me.  But, I feel like that for only for a short time. 

Why?  Because, I pray... and let my God know that I forgive the scammer who is doing what they can to hurt me.

Plus, as I've said in the past, praying for people who are hurtful to others, must be done.

Why?

If the hurtful, fraudulently scamming people are doing the evil things they shouldn't be doing, they truly need to come to Christ, and gain salvation, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Then, they will gain salvation after repenting of the sin in their lives.

Of course, if they or anyone else refuses to come to Christ, and gain salvation, then they will spend eternity in Hell, separated from God, with NO chance of escape.

Hopefully, I'll see you... in Heaven!


Until next time...

Gift, Help and Love...

Today, I'll be letting you know, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), about what happened last Friday, November 10th.

If you read LwL's blog entry that day, then you'd be aware that it was the day of my grandson, Z's birthday!

I must say that at lunch time, I didn't see Z.  I actually spent time with my friend, A.

A and I had lunch together at Red Lobster.  It's a restaurant that A and I hadn't been to for a long time.  :)

Not only did we enjoy the meal, we enjoyed our time together!

Of course, at suppertime, I went to be with my family.  And, truly enjoyed it!

We celebrated Z's birthday!

Yes, we had a lovely meal that Z likes!  Thank you, P... my loving daughter!

What a wonderful time we had!  It seemed like a gift to me.

Thinking of that, made me think of James 1:17, "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."

Amen!

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

He provided me with wonderful gifts that day.

I truly appreciated being with my family.  And, with my friend.

Of course, I absolutely appreciated that my grandson, D... helped me!

Before I left, D did for me, what I couldn't physically do.  For this, I was so truly thankful.

Thank you, D! 

Hopefully, you realize that I will always love my family and friends.

For them, I'm truly thankful.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...

Facebook Persecution...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I feel I want to discuss things that happened on November 9th, 2017.

As you may have read on LwL, that day was my daughter B's birthday.  So, it was truly nice being able to see her, when I took her the birthday gift and card!  Thank You, Lord!

Later, I was at home.  And, I was feeling tired and worn out.  Physically, not emotionally.

At midnight, after the LwL entry was posted on the internet, I decided I would share it on Facebook (FB), just as I normally do.

I posted on my wall/timeline. 

Then, on a group page I created.

When I went to share the posting on another group page I created, I had a problem.  And, wasn't able to share the posting, there.

Then, when I tried to post on a group page I am a member of, FB wouldn't let me share the posting.  I was again told that I wouldn't be able to share postings and/or comment on any group pages... for an entire week.

Sigh...

Here is what I posted on my wall/timeline (I copied/pasted):

(Lynn McKenzie)... is feeling frustrated, and feels badly that Facebook has once again blocked me from posting Christian entries, for another week. This is the 4th time in 8 weeks, where for a solid week each time, I've been prevented from sharing/posting on groups that I am a member of, and/or commenting. This is absolutely awful, especially since I haven't done anything bad to expect being treated this way. I forgive Facebook, but may God deal with those who are working for them and doing this to people like me. And, may God deal with the German government who let Facebook know that if any postings that they feel is offensive, is allowed too be posted, then they will sue Facebook. To me, this means that Facebook is hurting me and other Christians. Yes, being persecuted.  Please pray. Thank you. Blessings...

Then later, I commented to a sister in the Lord, who commented on this remark I posted (I copied/pasted):

Facebook seems to be afraid that Germany will not like any Christian postings, so FB doesn't want us to do it. I'm being treated like some other Christians have told me they are. Blessings, dear sis...

Sigh...

Knowing that I do all I can for my Lord, through writing here on LwL, and sharing/posting entries on FB so that people can read them, I realize that I am being persecuted... by Facebook, due to what the German government has told they would do to FB, if they don't like what FB allowed to be posted. 

Yes, I'm definitely persecuted.

Thinking about being persecuted, made me think of 2 Timothy 3:12, "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution."

Amen!  I live godly in Christ Jesus, and now suffer persecution.

Being persecuted definitely isn't fun.  Persecution is also not easy.

But, God is good.  And, my Lord, Jesus Christ will bless me, for I am doing all I can... for Him.

For this, I am thankful.

And, always will be.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...

H.B. T! & Prayer Request...

Something unusual will happen, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

What is it?

Well, since I don't usually comment about wishing a friend... Happy Birthday!.. today's LwL entry is very different.  Yes, I wish my friend, T... Happy Birthday!

Why did I do this, today?

My plan wasn't to mention about my friend's birthday.  The reason I decided to mention, T... is because T was injured at work several weeks ago.

Even though I prayed for healing for T, and even though T let me know that healing was happening, healing never became completely done.

After a few weeks, I found out from a relative of T's, that apparently T had so much pain, that T collapsed.  This caused more injury... a leg problem, in addition to the back, neck and head problem previously. 

When this happened, T went to the emergency department at the hospital to gain medical care/treatment.  But, it didn't just happen that day.  Apparently, T didn't just see a doctor in the emergency department.  T was admitted to the hospital.

After about 10 days, I found out that T, was a patient in the hospital, and will have to go to a rehabilitation unit, for further medical help/care.

This is what I decided to mention to you, so that you would join me in prayer, for T.

Prayer is so very important.

Especially, when two or three (2 or 3) or more people decide to pray together for an issue of any kind.

Thinking of this, made me think of Matthew 18:20, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

Amen!  Just as Jesus told us in today's Bible verse, where two or three (2 or 3) are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them! 

This means that as we pray together, Our Lord, is with us, in the midst of the group of people.

Hallelujah!

Just so you know, when I decided to write this, ask you for prayer, and post it here on LwL, I realized that this date, is actually T's birthday.  So, I decided to also wish T... Happy Birthday!

But, as I've mentioned, I am asking you to join me in prayer, asking our Lord, to heal T.  And, anyone/everyone else that we know needs healing.

Thank you.  May God bless you.

p.s.  By the way, even though I wrote this LwL entry a while ago and scheduled it to be posted today, I found out that my friend who I've asked you to pray for, was able to return home from the hospital.  Praise God!  Thank You, Lord! Even so, healing is still needed, so I would thank you again, for continuing to pray.  Blessings...


Until next time...

Friend... Draw Me Close...

If you don't mind, I'll be sharing something with you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's nothing personal.  After all, today is our special day.  It's our day of worship!

As I've said in the past, worshipping through music is wonderful.

So, today I will share with you some music.  It's not a hymn, but to me, it is something that touched my heart.

The music is by Michael W. Smith and is entitled, Draw Me Close.  Here is a link for you to listen to and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GA-rlIHFnh4&feature=youtu.be.  The lyrics are below.

Draw Me Close

Draw me close to You
Never let me go
I lay it all down again
To hear You say that I'm Your friend
You are my desire
No one else will do
Cause nothing else can take Your place
To feel the warmth of Your embrace
Help me find the way
Lord, bring me back to You

You're all I want
You're all I ever needed
You're all I want
Help me know You are near


Draw me close to You
Never let me go
I lay it all down again
To hear you say that I'm Your friend
You are my desire
No one else will do
Cause nothing else can take Your place
To feel the warmth of Your embrace
Help me find the way
Lord, bring me back to You


You're all I want
You're all I ever needed
You're all I want
Help me know You are near

You're all I want
You're all I ever needed
You're all I want
Help me know You are near

Help me know You are near
Help me know You are near
Help me know You are near
Help me know You are near
Help me know You are near

Amen!

I'm so thankful that a Facebook (FB) friend shared this music with me.  Thank you, dear friend!

There's something I feel I need to say. 

After I heard only the beginning of the music, I checked out the lyrics. Even though the lyrics I saw on the internet never showed words like You, or Your, but just showed it as... you, or your... I felt that the music drew me to Him.  And, thought I would have to let you know that.

However, when listening to the entire song, I was happy to hear that it was truly meant to rely upon our Lord!  For... Lord, was mentioned, even though the lyrics didn't say that.  So, I adjusted the lyrics here on LwL.

Hallelujah!  Praise God!

Thinking about how we are His friend, made me think of John 15:15, "Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you."

Amen!  Jesus doesn't call us servants, just as we just read He said, for servants knoweth not what his Lord doesth: but I have called you... friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father, I have made known unto you.

Again, all I can say is... hallelujah!

He has called us... friends

Does this mean He means it to everyone in the world?  No.

What was said, referred only to those of us who have gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ... and have repented of sin in our lives, and have created a relationship with Him.

I'm His friend.

Are you?

If you're not yet, please... come to Christ, today... and gain salvation.

Tomorrow, may be too late.


Until next time...

Remembrance Day!

As I mentioned over the past couple of days,
today...
is a special day
here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  

Why?
Because, it's a special day, for all who are
thankful...
to those who did all they could
to help us 
keep...
freedom.

It's Remembrance Day!

It's a day
when we 
honour those who fought for our freedom.
We need
to 
remember
and...
NOT
forget.


Those who should not be forgotten,
we need to
remember.
Just as we do, 
on...
Remembrance Day.

After all,
they showed us
great...
LOVE.

They did all they could
to help
protect us, and provide us with freedom,
by risking their lives...
and/or
losing their lives.

Thinking of this, made me think of...

John 15:13, " Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."

To those who have done all they could to help us have 
freedom,
whether you are alive,
or
whether your life ended,
I want you to know that
I love you...
and..
thank you!


May God bless you...


Until next time...

H.B. Z! & Honour...

Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I'd like to wish my grandson, Z... Happy Birthday!  I'm looking forward to celebrating with you.  Happy Birthday!

If you read yesterday's LwL entry, you'll know that World War 1 was mentioned.  Plus, you'll also know that honouring veterans from then, and/or any other wars may be dishonoured. 

Why? 

Because in USA a group of people are using law suits to try and remove honouring of veterans.  If it happens regarding the memorial for WW1, then it will open the door for any/all memorials to be removed. 

Not just in USA.  It may open the door for groups like that, to do the same in other countries.  Like where I live, and possibly where you live.

To me, it's truly evil that any group of people would want to dishonour those who fought for our freedom.

However, today... I'll be letting you know about how we in Canada honour those who have fought for our freedom.

We in Canada, celebrate November 11th, as our Remembrance Day!

Here's a link for you to click on, to check it out:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remembrance_Day.

Yes, Remembrance Day is a statutory holiday, here in Canada.  Here's a link for you to click on, to check it out:  https://www.statutoryholidays.com/remembrance_day.php.

Hopefully, you clicked on that link, and read the article.  If you did, you'll also know that there is someone who is speaking up, who wants our November 11th Remembrance Day to be no longer a statutory holiday.

If it happens to us, here in Canada, then it may open the door for someone or a group of people to do what they are trying to do in USA and/or other countries, regarding removing memorials.

Talk about evilness!  I believe that by removing memorials and/or statutory holidays honouring anyone, would be a way of dishonouring those who have done all they could to provide us our freedom.

After all, we need to honour those who do all they can for us.

Especially, since in life, there is time for war.

Just as we read, in Ecclesiastes 3:8, "A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace."

Amen!  Just as we read in today's Bible verse, there is... a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

We had a time of war, in the past.  And, in some ways have a time of war, even today.

But, it seems that since people want to dishonour by removing memorials of those who have fought for our freedom, there is also a time of hate.  For, they do not love, so it is not a time of love, for them.

But, it can be a time of love, if you speak up.  And, do whatever you can to help there be a time of peace, where those who deserve being honoured, will be.

Please, do what you can.

And, join me in prayer.

If you do, God will bless you.


Until next time...

H.B. B! & Evilness...

Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I would like to wish my daughter, B... Happy Birthday!  I'm looking forward to celebrating with you.  Happy Birthday!

There's something I think you should hear about, here on LwL.

To me, it's not something that is good.

Why?

Well, if you click on this link, you can read the article by foxnews.com entitled, Federal court rules World War 1 memorial cross must be torn downhttp://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/10/18/federal-court-rules-world-war-memorial-cross-must-be-torn-down.html.

Hopefully, you read the article.  If you weren't able to, I shared some of what the article stated (I copied/pasted):

Back in 1925, the American Legion erected a memorial in Bladensburg, Md., to honor the memory of 49 men who perished during World War I.

The 40-foot tall memorial became known as the "Peace Cross."

It also stated (I copied/pasted):

In 2014, the American Humanist Association -- a group that believes in "being good without a god" -- filed a lawsuit alleging the cross-shaped memorial is unconstitutional and demanding it be demolished, altered, or removed. 

They alleged the cross carries "an inherently religious message and creates the unmistakable appearance of honoring only Christian servicemen."

Since the entire article is important, I decided to share the rest of it with you (I copied/pasted):

On Wednesday, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals agreed and ruled the historic memorial must be torn down -- all because the Bladensburg Memorial is in the shape of a cross. 

The Fourth Circuit said the memorial excessively entangles the government in religion because the cross is the “core symbol of Christianity” and “breaches” the wall separating church and state.

Writing separately, Chief Judge Gregory wrote, “This Memorial stands in witness to the VALOR, ENDURANCE, COURAGE, and DEVOTION of the forty-nine residents of Prince George’s County, Maryland ‘who lost their lives in the Great War for the liberty of the world.’  I cannot agree that a monument so conceived and dedicated and that bears such witness violates the letter or spirit of the very Constitution these heroes died to defend.”

The American Legion could appeal directly to the Supreme Court.

"Today's decision sets dangerous precedent by completely ignoring history, and it threatens removal and destruction of veterans memorials across America," First Liberty Institute attorney Hiram Sasser said. 

First Liberty Institute and the Jones Day law firm are representing the American Legion in their fight.

“This memorial has stood in honor of local veterans for almost 100 years and is lawful under the First Amendment,” Jones Day attorney Michael Carvin said. “To remove it would be a tremendous dishonor to the local men who gave their lives during The Great War.”

I warned Americans in my new book, “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again,” that the war against religious liberty and traditional American values is far from over. 

A militant group of atheists, agnostics and free-thinkers want to eradicate Christianity in the public marketplace. The only way to stop this evil scourge is for people of faith to stand together and fight back in the courts.

Just so you know, it also stated (I copied/pasted):

Todd Starnes is host of Fox News & Commentary. His latest book is “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again.” Follow him on Twitter @ToddStarnes and find him on Facebook.

Sigh...

I appreciated what the Chief Judge Gregory wrote in favour of the memorial. 

However, I also agree with what the Frist Liberty Institute attorney Hiram Sasser said about how this threatens removal and destruction of veterans memorials across America.  :'(

To me, what is happening is truly sad.  And, heartbreaking to me.

It's truly evil.  Not good.

After all, everyone who fought in World War 1, fought to help people in USA.  And, veterans in other countries fought to help people in their countries.  Like veterans in Canada did, where I live.

Their strength came from our Lord.

Just as we read, in Psalm 144:1, "Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:"

Amen!  Blessed be the LORD my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight.

He strengthened people, who fought for our freedom.  Even those who didn't survive.

For this, we truly must be thankful.

Knowing that the militant group is fighting against honouring, please join me in prayer.

Pray, for all veterans.

And, pray that the memorials in various countries, including USA... won't be removed.

Thank you.

May God bless you.


Until next time...

I Am...

There's something I want to share with you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  Unfortunately, I realize that not everyone will be able to see it.

Why?

Well, a Facebook (FB) friend of mine, posted a video that I adored! 

Knowing that I knew the voice of the preacher/teacher who was speaking God's word, I tried to locate the video on YouTube.  But, couldn't find it, even though I searched for a l-o-n-g period of time, trying to find it.

My FB friend let me know that it was received by him by a friend, through What's App, not through YouTube, or from any site that could be found.

Knowing that I can share the link for the video that only people on FB could see, I was about to share it with you, here.  But, the Lord touched my heart. 

I went back on YouTube and searched in a different way, realizing that the title, was not what was shown on FB.  And, guess what?  I found it! 

Hallelujah!

Here is a link for the YouTube video entitled, The Supremacy of Jesus Christhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4GjU7H4haI.  If you click on that link, you'll be happy to hear Ravi Zacharias speaking truth.

If you can't do that, and if you're on FB, please click on this link that is named differently, but is the same video:  https://www.facebook.com/soencekonnayilthomas/videos/10209516686701799/.

Hopefully, you watched the video.  And, hopefully... it touched your heart the way it touched mine!

Yes, what Ravi Zacharias spoke about is a true blessing.  However, what the artist had drawn truly touched my heart, as well!

After all, he spoke about our Lord, Jesus... and the artist confirmed that everything referred to... the way, the truth and the life.

Just as we read, in John 14:6, "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

Amen!  Just as Jesus said... I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Hallelujah!  We have a way, of being with God!

And, since Jesus is the way, the truth and the life... all we need to do is to have a relationship with Jesus.

Trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Repent of your sin. And, dedicate your life to Him.  When you do this, you'll have a truly blessed relationship with Jesus... who will provide you with salvation, for He is the way, the truth and the life.

I've done this.

Have you?

If not, come to Christ, today.

Tomorrow, may be too late.


Until next time...

Injured Workers & Info...

If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday, you'll know that I experienced terrible trouble with my van. 

Even so, I praise God for helping me.  Thank You, Lord!

I made it home in the middle of the night.  As you can probably guess, I didn't have much sleep.

However, the rest of the day was busy, last Thursday.

Then, in the evening, I had a meeting to attend.  This was for injured workers.

There were several people in attendance at the injured workers meeting.  For this, I was thankful.

Plus, we had a speaker.  The speaker was a paralegal worker. 

The paralegal worker made clear to us, some changes that may affect us.  Including law.

For this, I must admit, I am truly thankful. And, as I'm sure, so were others who were in attendance at the meeting.

You see, to me... what I heard was very important. 

Thinking about this, made me think of those who are truly against all injured workers, and not just me.

After all, I realize that God will deal with everyone who is against us.

Why do I think this? 

Read, Isaiah 41:11, "Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish."

Amen!

Hallelujah!

Yes, all they that were angry/incensed against me, and other injured workers, will be ashamed and confounded; they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.

For this, I'm trusting God.  And, always will, for He will not just help us injured workers.  He'll also deal with those who are against us.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...

Fear? Helped!

Today, I'll tell you about something, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

Although I can't really explain everything about the issue at this time, I will let you know that I went quite a distance away, here in Ontario, to pick up a van I own.

Why it was there, I can't explain about at this time.  However, I will let you know that I was happy being able to pick up my van, there... even though I had to drive up there twice in the last month, drive home back to Windsor each time, and then eventually, take a train to the area, and take a taxi to go pick it up.

When I went to see my van, I was so very upset.  That is also something I can't explain at this time.

Once I was able to drive it, I drove to an area in which I lived many years ago, when I was young.

As I drove past the home I lived in, I also drove past a few other homes of friends.  This touched my heart, and made me happy.

Even though there was only one (1) friend I could text, I did so, so that my friend could know that I thought about not just the home, but my friend as well.

It was nice hearing back from my friend.  For this, I am truly thankful.

As I drove into another area, I was on a busy street. 

I realized that my van seemed to be overheating, just as I saw a retail store where I could turn in to pick up coolant, and I did park there.  Yes, I realized that there couldn't have been much coolant, since it was overheating. 

As I parked my van, it massively overheated!

When I went into the store, the male salesperson carried out a couple of jugs of coolant for me.  As we approached my van, he suggested I needed to see a mechanic that was only a couple of doors away.  So, I did.

The mechanic let me know about the problem.  Since I couldn't stay in that area for the few days it would have taken for him to obtain what was needed to fully repair the problem, he did a temporary repair for me.

For this, I was truly thankful.  And, still am.

You see, it took several hours to have my van repaired enough for me to be able to drive home.  And, I planned to see a friend, also.

And, even though this horrible issue happened, I didn't feel afraid.  Even though I was upset, I didn't have fear.  And, was thankful that I hadn't gone directly onto a highway, to head home.  If I had, then my van would have overheated on the highway, and I would have been hurt even worse.

Thinking about fear, made me recall Isaiah 41:10, " Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not  dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."

Amen!  He was with me!

He not only didn't make me fear as my van overheated and needed repair, He also gave me strength, and helped me.

Why?

Because... He is my God.  And, I am truly thankful to Him.

Is He your God?

Have you gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ?

If not, do it now.  Don't wait.

Come to Christ, today. 

You'll be blessed.  And, you will not fear, but will be strengthened and helped.

I'll Fly Away...

Today, is a special day, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL)!

It's a day, when I mention how I honour God by worshipping.  After all, it's SONday!

We need to worship in spirit and in truth.  Amen!

Of course, as I've said in the past, we can also worship through music.  So, I'll share with you some music, today!

The song I'm sharing with you, is by Randy Travis and is entitled, I'll Fly Away.  Here's a link, for you to click on, so you can listen to and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEhdQKRH620.  The lyrics are below.

I'll Fly Away

Some glad morning when this life is o'er
I'll fly away
To a home on God's celestial shore
I'll fly away

I'll fly away, oh glory
I'll fly away
When I die, hallelujah, by and by
I'll fly away

When the shadows of this life have gone
I'll fly away
Like a bird from prison bars has flown
I'll fly away

I'll fly away, oh glory
I'll fly away
When I die, hallelujah, by and by
I'll fly away

Just a few more weary days and then
I'll fly away
To that land where joy shall never end
I'll fly away

I'll fly away, oh glory
I'll fly away
When I die, hallelujah, by and by
I'll fly away


I'll fly away, oh glory
I'll fly away
When I die, hallelujah, by and by
I'll fly away

When I die, hallelujah, by and by

Amen!  I can relate to what the lyrics say.

Why?  Well, when my life ends, I'll fly away!

This will happen either when my life ends here on earth through death, or when the rapture happens.  For even though the Bible doesn't contain the word... rapture... it is what we call it today, when Jesus will open the door and take us to Heaven.

To me, it's so very important.

Much like we read, in 2 Corinthians 5:8, "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord."

Amen!  We who are saved, are confident and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord!

If you want this to happen to you, please come to Christ today, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ..

Tomorrow, may be too late.


Until next time...

Focus!

Guess what I'll be doing today, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL)?  I'll be doing something I've done at times, in the past.

What is it?

Movies!

Here are some movies I've watched:

Laura, starring Gene Tierney, Clifton Webb and other actors.  If you'd like to check out this American film noir, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_(1944_film).  Even though this movie related to murder, I enjoyed watching it.

Christina's House, starring Brendon Fehr, Brad Rowe and other actors.  Would you like to check out this drama mystery film?  If so, please click on this link:  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0216620/.  Even though this was a horror movie, I made sure I watched the whole thing!

Mad Max, starring Mel Gibson, Roger Ward and other actors. Click on this link, to check out this Australian Dystoplan action filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mad_Max.  To me, it was a strange movie, but I watched it.

To Die For, starring Nicole Kidman, Joaquin Phoenix and Matt Dillon.  To check out this American criminal comedy drama, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/To_Die_For.  Even though this movie involved death, I watched it.

*  April Fool's Day, starring Jay Baker, Deborah Foreman and many other actors.  Click on this link, if you'd like to check out this American mystery horror filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_Fool%27s_Day_(1986_film)  Even though it seemed murder was happening over and over again, it's interesting to see the ending.

Yes, I realize it's not even close to April Fool's Day, but most of these films sort of reminded me of the sinfulness of this time of the year.

It's a time when many people do not focus on our Lord. 

Instead, they focus on Satan.  Even though many people don't realize it relates to Satan, by being sinful by honouring Halloween.

But, it does. 

And, we're not supposed to.

Just as we read, in Leviticus 19:31, "Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God."

Amen... He is the Lord, our God!

Wizards involve magical powers, warlock and sorcerers.  Don't believe me?  Google it, and you'll see that it's not just the Bible telling us the truth.

Of course, our Bible does tell us truth.  For God our Father created it for us to know what He wants for us, and for us to do.

Do you read the Bible?

I do.

Hopefully, you do.

Weep... and Rejoice!

This is another day, when I feel I need to share something with you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's not an e-mail I've received.  It's something that I saw online.

Msn.com posted an article entitled, Family freed returns to Canada, says 1 child killedhttps://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/canada/family-freed-returns-to-canada-says-1-child-killed/ar-AAtpQa5?li=AAadgLE&ocid=spartanntp.

If you haven't yet clicked on that link, please do so.  It's important for you to read about what happened to the Canadian family, when they were in Afghanistan.

In case you didn't or couldn't click on the link and read the article, I'm sharing some of the information stated (I copied/pasted):

TORONTO — Former hostage Joshua Boyle said upon arriving back in Canada that the Haqqani network in Afghanistan had killed his infant daughter and raped his American wife during the years they were held in captivity.

Boyle gave the statement shortly after landing in Canada late Friday with his wife, Caitlan Coleman, and three young children.

The couple was rescued Wednesday, five years after they had been abducted by the Taliban-linked extremist network while in Afghanistan as part of a backpacking trip. Coleman was pregnant at the time and had four children in captivity. The birth of the fourth child had not been publicly known before Boyle appeared before journalists at the Toronto airport.

Aww...  it also stated (I copied/pasted):

Dan Boyle, Joshua's younger brother, said outside the family home in Smiths Falls, Ontario, that he had spoken to his brother a few times in the past few days.

"He's doing very well. He sounds a lot like how he sounded five years ago. He sounds like he had his head on his shoulders and his wits about him," he said.

The Canadian government said in a statement they will "continue to support him and his family now that they have returned."

"Today, we join the Boyle family in rejoicing over the long-awaited return to Canada of their loved ones," the Canadian government said.

Sigh...

There's several reasons why it is sad what this family went through, while being in Afghanistan.

Plus, it is truly sad to me, that our Canadian government made that statement.

Please understand... that I am happy our Canadian government said they will continue to support him and his family, now that they have returned.

It confuses me as to why the Canadian government said that they join the Boyle family in rejoicing over the long-awaited to return to Canada of their loved ones.

Why does this confuse me?

Well, our Canadian government has a Prime Minister for Canada, who is in support of Muslims

Just as he, Justin Trudeau confirmed during the election time, through news videos, etc.  At that time, he let everyone know that he would give Muslims more rights here in Canada.

Is this what we need?

Absolutely, not.

After all, if they have enough rights here in Canada, they will be able to arrange for Sharia Law.

If this happens, Canada will become more like Afghanistan.  And, like other countries where Islam does what their god wants them to do.

Even so, I rejoice that this family returned to Canada.

This made me think of Romans 12:15, "Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep."

Amen!  We need to rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

Please, join me in rejoicing for this Canadian family.

And, please join me in weeping with them, for they also are weeping.

In addition, please join me in prayer for this family.

If you do, may God bless you.


Until next time...

World Hatred...

In the past, I've discussed something here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  What I discussed related mainly to where I live, here in Canada.

What was it?

It was about how our Canadian government has created law that removes our Freedom of Speech.

As I've said in the past, I believe Freedom is so very important.  After all, veterans... like my dad, mom and many, many, many others, fought to protect us, and to help us maintain freedom.

Recently, I read an article that touched my heart.

Not just for me!  But, also for anyone/everyone who lives in Germany.

Why?

Well, click on this link, to read the article by prophecynewswatch.com entitled, Germany:  Full Censorship Now Officialhttp://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=1710.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to copy/paste anything stated in that article, so I hope you clicked on it, and read it.

If you did, you'll know that the German government created a new law that requires Facebook (FB) and other social media platforms to censor their users on behalf of the German state, as was stated in the article.

It also states that if they refuse to delete or block what they consider to be online criminal offenses, then the German government can fine them up to 50 million euros for failing to comply with the law... as the article states.

Sigh...

I wonder if this is why FB has blocked me from posting/sharing on various group pages that I am a member of, even though they are Christian articles here on LwL, that I share/post on Christian groups that I am a member of.   This hasn't just happened to me.  It's also happened to other Christian FB friends, as well.

Apparently the article states that... a district court in Munich gave German journalist, Michael Sturzenburger a six-month suspended jail sentence for posting on his FB page a historical photo of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseni, shaking the hand of a senior Nazi official in Berlin in 1941.

Why is this being done?

By creating this law and hurting people for speaking/showing truth, freedom is being removed.

Yes, freedom.

Even though Germany didn't win the World War 2, don't you think that Germans received freedom?  I do.

Just as we all did in other countries of the world.

It seems that since freedom is being removed in various countries, people will be hurt.

Who?

I believe those being hurt, will be those who are not of this world.

For those who are not of this world, are with God.  And, speak truth, in some ways by educating people about history and how they will be affected.

So, many of us will be hated.

Why do I think this?

Because of what God's Word tells us, in John 15:19, "If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you."

Amen!  If we are of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

Sigh... how true this is.

After all, those who are loved by those who do not belong to God, are loved by others in the world.  But, when we come to Christ and gain salvation by trusting in/believing upon Jesus, repent and gain a relationship with Him, we then do what God would have us do.

And, we are then hated by those who are not saved.

Please, realize that we need to know truth.

For then, we can look to Him for help... every day of our life.  And, He will provide for us.  Just as He already does.

Thank You, Lord!
