    Exclamation People SCREAMING to get God out of our public schools...BUT

    Who is the first person they call on in a tragedy? Who is the first person they want to blame when things don't go right???

    I am so tired of people not TRULY trusting in God, and then when something "bad" happens in their life, they say "Oh why has God forsaken us?". The Bible teaches us that we will all endure pain and tribulations and struggles. Just because you know God does not mean that you will go through the rest of your life smelling the daisies and floating on air. In fact, it means that satan is going to try even harder to attack you. You are going to have hard times, and God will bring you through them stronger than you went in.

    Truly trusting in God means that you know there is a light at the end of the tunnel, even when all you see is darkness. As our youth pastor preached last week, "True faith and trust in God is the ability to kill the fatty calf even BEFORE you see the prodigal son!".

    What brought this on...a couach at our local High School died in his sleep. He was only 26. The staff and students were devestated. Who did they call in? The local ministers/pastors/clergy. That's who!!! Why, because we all need God, but the "norm" is to only call on him in tragedy. That is what our schools have resorted to. Is it so hard to see that things would not be as they are in this nation if people would have left God in our schools???

    I can feel your frustration in your words. Aggravating isn't it? If people weren't so darn proud and stubborn to begin with - well, you know..

    Let's lift up the family of this 26 year old and ask for God's comforting love to envelope them as they struggle with this tragedy.

    In Him and For HIM!
