So many altars of fear has taken over the altars of faith.
The Bible says FEAR has TORMENT — no wonder you are always afraid of people, things, or the dark.
But there is NO FEAR in LOVE (God) because God has not given you the spirit of FEAR! But of boldness and a SOUND MIND. •
How can you have sound mind when you think your enemy is “people” & you call people your “haters”???? — Satan is your adversary and he is your ONLY ENEMY!
Satan needs people to display his wickedness and likewise God needs people to represent Him on earth. These are agents of light and agents of darkness. •
It’s quite unfortunate that we now look unto people as our enemies and start avoiding people like plague when all you can do is bind the devil speaking through that person so they can be delivered.
When you soak in this fear, it keeps you in BONDAGE!
How then will you be able to keep The ONLY commandment required of you (Love God & your neighbor), When you are in CHAINS due to FEAR???? •
Look into the ROCK you were hewn from, the same ROCK your Father Abraham was cut from. We are called to FAITH! Love people by faith and keep the faith going no matter what it looks like. Never allow fear cripple your faith in God and His WORD! Amen. •
Keep or Mulligan?
This is a Hearthstone-style Battlebox starting hand, one I thought particularly good. Everyone can play one basic land per turn from the command zone, in addition to drawing a card from a library of only spells. (We also include 2 of each of the allied tap-lands.) Mulligans work the same way they do in Hearthstone: a one-time 1:1 card swap for each card you'd like to mull.
Bearing these rules in mind, would you have kept this hand?
The art on Demonic Torment is so goooood.
The greatest peril of misplaced #worry is that in keeping us constantly tensed against an imagined catastrophe, it prevents us from fully living. - Seneca - #anxiety
The truth is, we know so little about life, we don’t really know what the good news is and what the bad news is,”Kurt Vonnegut observed in discussing Hamlet during his influential lecture on the shapes of stories. “The whole process of nature is an integrated process of immense complexity, and it’s really impossible to tell whether anything that happens in it is good or bad,” Alan Watts wrote a generation earlier in his sobering case for learning not to think in terms of gain or loss. And yet most of us spend swaths of our days worrying about the prospect of events we judge to be negative, potential losses driven by what we perceive to be “bad news.” In the 1930s, one pastor itemized anxiety into five categories of worries, four of which imaginary and the fifth, “worries that have a real foundation,” occupying “possibly 8% of the total.” With an eye to the self-defeating & wearying human #habit of bracing ourselves for imaginary disaster, #Seneca counsels his young friend:
What I advise you to do is, not to be unhappy before the #crisis comes; since it may be that the dangers before which you paled as if they were threatening you, will never come upon you; they certainly have not yet come.
Accordingly, some things #torment us more than they ought; some torment us before they ought; and some torment us when they ought not to torment us at all. We are in the habit of exaggerating, or imagining, or anticipating, #sorrow . Via #dailygood .org #awareness#wakingtheguru
