Reclaiming the Choices We Have Forgotten; Taking the USA back from the "Menu Makers"
  • Personal choice and courage may be called on to, over time, reclaim and embrace new found strengths which will result in the richest and fullest life possible. This fast food nation seduces many to settle for a prison sentence of status quot living. The menu's choices are limited. Will we settle for the movement controlled by the "menu makers"? Soon we give up thinking we have choices outside the menu. Is this something we will protest in the streets and be willing to lay down in front of tanks for? The menu makers count on us to settle for what only appears available. Will settling for the menu makers choices make the phrase "getting out of the box" obsolete? When we settle for just the menu, it becomes a death sentence of giving up choices. Hopefully the 2010's will make the 60' look like the 50's.
  • Old dogs can learn new tricks. Those of us who go inside to wrestle our demons, blooded by the battle, find that the inner battle must first be fought. The sword may then be drawn from the sheath, screaming the impassioned beliefs they are willing to die for. Some of us would rather be dead then have our freedoms taken by the "menu". Look out The battle ahead will make the 60's look like the 50's.

By Oswald Chambers:

If ya'll don't mind, I've been reading Oswald Chambers and this spoke to me:

There is no heaven with a little corner of hell in it. God is determined to make you pure and holy and right; He will not allow you to escape for one moment from the scrutiny of the Holy Spirit. He urged you to come to judgement right away when He convicted you [about this something, or that something] but you did not; the inevitable process began to work and now you are in prison and you only get out when you have paid the uttermost farthing (Matthew 5:26) " Is this a God of mercy, and of love?" you say. Seen from God's side, it is a glorious ministry of love. God is going to bring you out pure and spotless and undefiled; but He wants you to recognize the disposition you were showing-the disposition of your right to yourself. The moment you are willing that God should alter your disposition, His re-creating forces will begin to work. The moment you realize God's purpose, which is to get you rightly related to Himself and then to your fellow men, He will tax the last limit of the universe to help you take the right road. Decide it now - "yes, Lord, I will writer that letter tonight" or " I will be reconciled to that man now." These messages of Jesus Christ are for the will and the conscience, not for the head. If you dispute the Sermon on the Mount with your head you will blunt the appeal to your heart. "I wonder why I don't go on with God?" Are you paying your debts from God's standpoint? Do now what you will have to do some day. Every moral call has "ought" behind it. [Or "listen NOW to the little voice inside ..." that's kind of basic, but my ears get dull.]
