Fear Not


There is so much going on in our nation and frankly, it's scary.

However, when I see things that are frightening, I look to my savior and my courage begins to rise.  

I've never before seen where people who live in the areas where there are fires (CA, OR, WA) and they are saying on their social media that people are setting these fires on purpose, and yet 'official' media and even in one case an FBI section saying that that isn't true.

Friends, it has come down to becoming aware that the mainstream media is lying to us.  They are now just a mouth piece for a particular political viewpoint, and even when it is shown over and over that they didn't tell the truth, they still do it hoping that at least some will believe them.

Tim and I watched an Clackamas county supervisors meeting online last night.  They are available for people to watch.  The local sheriff's department was briefing them on what was going on.  The media is lying to us.

I think big things are going to happen in the next weeks leading up to the election, and I just want to encourage you that when you hear something from the mainstream media, to take a deep breath, and do a bit of online research from some non mainstream media, locals in an area etc. Don't automatically trust that what the media is reporting is truth.

Also, if I am looking up anything about vaccines, the fires, election information I use a different search engine than g**gle.  They are blocking searches of some information.  Just like FB etc, who are fact checking you.  Tim and I looked up one fact checker site that is commonly used, and found it is funded by the Tides Foundation.  Look and see who is behind that foundation.  I use Duck Duck Go right now for searches.

I told Tim this weekend that the Lord reminded me that my hope is not in a political party or in any person.  My hope is only in the Lord!

'Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

Isaiah 41:10

We are in a spiritual battle, friends.  Darkness vs Light.  It seems as if darkness has had the upper hand, but I sense that Light is on the move.

Keep trusting, keep looking to the source of LIGHT.  We are not alone, God is with us.

"The So-Called-News" has an agenda.

They lie, to push their agenda.

They do not report facts, which do not agree, with their agenda.

Use for Searching.

Use Bill O' for independent and fully sourced information, and analysis. It is worth joining.

Amen and Amen!! Our sermon at church yesterday was about remembering where our citizenship truly is.

Yes. Absolutely, we are being lied to. It's the reason that I gave up the alphabets years ago. My sister and I have these ongoing conversations. I mention something and she'll say that that wasn't on the news. Sigh. Right. And it never will be. They are completely compromised. As they say, "follow the money." It leads to some dastardly sources who are bent on destroying this country. Thanks for the post. Thinking of you folks in PA these days. There is so much to pray about in so many parts of the country.

"I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,"

Amen to this. A LOUD amen. Thank you.

I almost get sick just watching any news. I have quit watching it. It seems pointless. I have tried to take every scary thought and turn it over. I have been using Duck Duck Go for years. I try to avoid the G one at all cost. I try to seek out those other sources too.
You are not alone in those thoughts. I am what they call the silent majority I suppose. I hope I am still the majority though.

GREAT post! Thank you! "Fear NOT for I am with you"... needs to be repeated over and over in our hearts. Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

Every single word you have written, I have to agree 100%. With all that has been going on with the virus, and the Riots in our cities, I have no doubt that the horrible fires were started by someone on purpose. What is wrong with some of them, I have no idea. But like you, I look to God, and I pray. We have God on our side...stay safe, Hugs from Wisconsin


  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
