Good Cheer!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), there's something I feel I need to let you know about. 

It's not something I've let you know about in the past.  But, it is something that I've sort of discussed, in the past.

What is it?

Well, it's sort of a bit of information that confirms that Islam is gaining more rights.  I'm not referring to Canada, today. 

Today, I'm referring to USA.

Here is an article by foxnews.com entitled, NYC must pay $180G to 3 Muslim women forced to remove hijabs for mugshotshttp://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/02/28/nyc-must-pay-180g-to-3-muslim-women-forced-to-remove-hijabs-for-mugshots.html.

If you clicked on the link and read that article, you'll know it stated (I copied/pasted):

New York City will have to pay out $180,000 to three Muslim women after forcing them to take off their hijabs for mugshots.
 
Three lawsuits were settled Monday in Brooklyn federal court stemming from the NYPD policy of photographing people wearing religious head coverings, the New York Daily News reported. The three women settled for $60,000 each.
 
Some cases date to 2012, when a high school girl – identified as “G.E.” – was arrested after a brawl with two other girls whom she thought spread gossip about her.

Sigh...

Does it truly make a difference about whether or not any female should be allowed to wear something like what the Muslim women wear... a jihab?

I know that here in Canada, if I want to have a picture taken of me for my health card, my driver's license, passport or any other item that requires a picture, I'm not allowed to wear anything to cover me up. 

Why should Muslim women be able to do it? 

After all, I've heard so many Muslims say they claim that they are not required to wear jihabs.  Yet, they do.  Not due to their religion.  And, for no other reason other than they want to.

So, please understand that it upsets me about what happened in USA, because we are obtaining more and more Muslims living here in Canada, so it will probably happen here, as well.  I believe so for a couple of reasons.

After all, our Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau told everyone on news broadcasts during the time of election, that if he were elected to be our Canadian Prime Minister, that he would give Muslims more rights.

In addition though, I must say that in many ways and many things that happen in USA, usually ends up happening, here in Canada, later.

Sigh...

Even though things happen from time to time, things will probably will happen here in Canada, just as it did in USA for the Muslim women.

To me, it will contribute to us receiving trials in our lives.  However, if we look to our Lord, Jesus Christ, we know that He will help us.

Thinking of this, made me think of John 16:33, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."

Amen!  Just as Jesus told us that in Him, we may have peace.  In the world, we shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Absolutely!  He did overcome the world.

And, He's living in Heaven with God the Father, and the Holy Spirit.

For this, I'm thankful.  After all, He has provided for us.  And, we receive all He provides for us, in my ways.  Like overcoming trials and/or tribulations.

Yes, we need to overcome the world.

I do.  Even on a daily basis, even though life isn't easy.  For God is good.

And, all we need to do to be able to overcome, is to become part of His family. 

How?

Trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, to gain salvation, everlasting life, and the ability to overcome trials and tribulations.

If you haven't yet done this, do it... today.

Tomorrow, may be too late.


Until next time...
