My life has taken me on many paths and journeys. But never did I think that I would end up in the geo-area of my family roots. And that my values would be converted to their values.
Let me tell you a story.
In 2007 I was very concerned about a presidential candidate that Claire McCaskill was starting the talking-head spin about, as I remembered him as the “senator from Kenya” from local news. As well I was concerned that George W. Bush had us in an unwarranted war, searching for mythical weapons of mass destruction. It was during this time frame that I Woke UP to what our nation was and where we were going.
As the years progressed and 0bama gained the position of the highest in the land, my concerns grew as I saw the destructive direction of our nation. I did not know what to do, so I turned to God.
Christ and I have had an off and on relationship. Unfortunately I am sad and ashamed to state that most of it has been off, until about 2009, when I finally found Him again and let Him into my heart and soul. Since I have given Him my Will and allowed Him to lead me He has directed me on an amazing and bewildering path. I will expand on this over the summer, as the Rhodes-Proffers clan are infamous story tellers 🙂
Let me introduce you to my Uncle Luther Rhodes. In 2014, Uncle Luther was invited back to the church where he had been minister for twenty-five years. Unfortunately, he was ill and needed surgery, but by the Grace of God, he was allowed to preach his last sermon. This sermon has helped me over the last few years. Uncle Luther was wise, please listen to his words.
I believe all we have to do as Christians is to Wake UP and work together. We cannot be divided by issues that involve hate, as that is not a Christian thing to do! We cannot judge others, as we are not at that pay grade! But in the same token, we will not be judged by others that do not believe in our Faith, as we are Christian soldiers! WE have to remember what it is to be Christian again or we have failed Gods test. I will not be the chaff on the thrashing floor!
Galatians 6:7King James Version (KJV)
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
