What a wonderfully uplifting post by Sherry, of the “He Hath Said” blog. Be encouraged by the song “God Will Take Care of You” and by the “Prince of Preacher’s” sermon entitled “God Incarnate the End of Fear!”
Another gem by Deborah Ann…
The Lord is my Shepherd,
I want nothing more
then the joy and glory
for me He has in store.
He satisfies my thirst,
my hunger He fills
my anxiety and fears
He calms and stills.
The Lord is my Shepherd,
I want not a thing
for my heart is set
on the peace He’ll bring.
He is my saving Light,
He is my High Rock
I’m so blessed to be
a part of His flock.
The Lord is my Shepherd,
there’s nothing I lack
my faith in Him is all . . .
He want’s me to give back!
“The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.”
King James Version

I applaud PragerU for articulating the truth of America’s history. The men quoted here weren’t all necessarily Christians but they knew how important religion and particularly Judeo-Christian beliefs were to the establishment and continued welfare of the nation. Their words are as true today as they were when they spoke them over two hundred years ago.
I saw this on Dan’s “The Battle Cry” blog. The Gospel is an unpopular message in a world that has a sinful nature. I think this sums up Biblical teaching that separates by eons the God of the Bible from any other “god.” I’m not sure why they used the setting they did but I thought that it was significant. The “Church” appears to be falling apart in our day but it is not the case. The true Church of Jesus Christ will be saved by the mercy and grace of God alone. The great work has already been done on the cross at Calvary. I don’t know that it is the best presentation of the Gospel ever but I do think you should click on “view original post” below.
I saw this on Ingrid Schlueter’s The Hope Blog today.
I had to share it because it reminds me so much of the unmerited grace that God has had on me. There is pain, there is sadness, yet there is hope and joy.
A great message from one of the greatest Christian communicators of the last few centuries.
This isn’t the clearest picture of the man. You can find hundreds of better ones on the internet. Mr. Spurgeon’s words are the focus here. I hope these words bless and instruct you as they have me.
It is, once again, time to share information about worldwide human rights abuses. Back in April, I shared this video featuring children wearing shirts naming real abused Norwegian children. The song was written and performed by Cristian Cazacu. He explains the purpose of the song in a video below.
A modern worldwide movement has begun. The epicenter is the country of Norway.
Norway’s CPS, called the Barnevernet, has such an atrocious record when it comes to separating children from biological parents for little or no reason that cities all over the world held demonstrations earlier this year. Hot Springs, Arkansas was one of those cities. The demonstrations in Norway continue and the issue has made many aware of similar problems in other countries. There has been good news and bad news in Norway since this video was made.
The Good News
A few high profile cases have been won in court, not a common thing in Norway. The people of Norway are becoming more aware of the internal problems and, despite a great amount of pressure, the numbers of protesters is growing.
The Bad News
It appears that new laws are being discussed that will increase the powers of an already frightening and disastrous system. Norwegians continue to be intimidated and scared by a government “Child Protection” service that appears to fear nothing, even condemnation by international human rights groups.
Recently, a local state legislator whom I know discovered a similar problem with Arkansas’ DCFS. Evidence has surfaced in a local case that information was “covered up.” Unlike Norwegian politicians, my local State Senator is confronting the issue.
In a recent FB post, my State Senator wrote:
“The legislature passed laws dictating that DCFS and juvenile courts first try to place children with relatives before foster care. Some DCFS employees and some judges are reluctant to follow that law. They fear that a relative that has not been vetted “might” harm the child. That is a legitimate fear. But why is that more of a fear than that a foster parent may hurt a child? And how about the proven trauma to children when they are completely separated from their entire family and support network?”
He also pointed out how a mother from Los Angeles, California won $3,000,000 in a lawsuit and that similar lawsuits will be started in Arkansas if necessary. The Californian mother’s child had been taken for no good reason like so many cases in Norway.
The Norwegian Barnevernet seldom tries to place children with relatives. In cases that I am aware of, children are split up and never see their siblings again until they are 18 or older. The Barnevernet is not afraid of lawsuits because it has abused its power in many cases over many years without repercussion.
What can be done?
Like my State Senator, Norwegian politicians have to become concerned. My State Senator became concerned because of his Christian convictions and his decency as a human being. Norwegian politicians must know of this problem as their country has become the focus of worldwide attention.
I have tried to remember to contact the Norwegian Prime Minister every so often via her Facebook page. I will try and do this every other day, expressing my concerns, from this day forward. Her name is Ms. Erna Solberg and you can get to her facebook page by clicking HERE.
A Facebook friend of mine has created an excellent blog site with information about how you can contact important authorities in Norway. If enough of us make comments, along with pressure from within Norway, maybe Norwegian leaders will see that a change cannot be avoided.
Here is the website and a big thank you to Mike Snow who has rightly pointed out that, “A few people contacting politicians are only looked at as a nuisance. A thousand people posting and emailing information to them would feel like a Tsunami!”
At this site, you can click on a link to Solveig Horne’s (Minister of Children and Equality, Barnevernet head) Facebook Page.

Together, we can make a difference.
