What a morning it’s been. I misjudged how long my sourdough needed to rise, so I was in the kitchen at 5 am today to make sourdough cinnamon rolls. I had been tossing and turning all night, and I figured I might as well get up. At least then I was doing something useful with my time. My husband would be blessed by the cinnamon rolls, too!
One of the reasons I didn’t sleep so well is because my husband showed a news article to me right before bed. Now, I try to stay away from the news. I’ve discovered that news stories often make me feel sad, and there is usually nothing I can do about the situation. Besides pray, of course. It does bring me comfort to know that the Lord is near to me.
I’m going to link the article I saw here. It is about a new Disney film called Lightyear, which supposedly has a homosexual scene. Not surprising. We cancelled Disney + some time ago, and have pretty much decided that we do not want to give that company our business in any way, shape, or form.
This is what the person who plays the voice of Buzz Lightyear said about those who oppose the scene in an interview:
“The real truth is those people are idiots,” Evans said during an interview with Reuters Television.
“There’s always going to be people who are afraid and unaware and trying to hold on to what was before. But those people die off like dinosaurs. I think the goal is to pay them no mind, march forward and embrace the growth that makes us human.”
While I don’t appreciate being called an idiot, what saddened me most about the article is that Muslim countries are banning it, but Christian countries are not. I do not understand how “Christianity” has come to this.
We have slid down a slippery slope, where entertainment is more important than godliness. Of course there will be some that take a stand against it, but most of us will continue to funnel our dollars to Disney and other entertainment companies just like them.
I don’t know about you, but I feel like “Pride” month is difficult to live through. It is getting bolder and worse each year. How we’ve accepted this as a culture is beyond my comprehension. I will be so glad once it is over.
Muslim countries don’t play when it comes to this. But ours is fully involved.
Our nation is not doing so well. A country who turned it’s back on God cannot be blessed by Him.
We must continue to teach our children about real truth and love from the Scriptures. It also would be a good idea to thoroughly screen all entertainment that enters our home.
I would like to leave you with a few Scriptures that Garlands of Grace compiled together on their Instagram account. If you are walking in these sins, know that our Great God loves you so much. You can repent! But as a mama, there is no way that I can teach my children that sin is okay. This is out of love for them since my hope is that they will one day inherit the kingdom of God.
“But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.” -Mark 10:6
•Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.- 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
•Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.-Romans 1:24-32
•Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out…-Acts 3:19
•If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.-1 John 1:9
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today, friends. While I know this post isn’t the most encouraging, please remember that we have great hope if we truly trust in Jesus/Yeshua, turn from our sins, and follow God. He is so good, loving, and faithful.
