Let’s Cry About It
The Old Testament prophet Jeremiah
Both were rejected and mistreated.
Though Jeremiah’s story can be depressing,
it CAN encourage us.
He was called a liar, (Jeremiah 43:2) . . .
was left in the mud at the bottom of a well to die . . . (Jeremiah 38:6), his Bible was burned (Jeremiah 36:23) . . .
he received a death sentence (Jeremiah 26:11) . . .
and he was beaten and put in stocks (Jeremiah 20:1-2).
No wonder he was called the “weeping prophet!”
I’d blubber like a baby if I were in his shoes.
But Jeremiah wasn’t weeping for himself!
He was weeping for those who had rejected Christ.
He was broken-hearted for the lost.
When was the last time you wept for someone who doesn’t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?
Let’s ask God to break our hearts for the lost.
Jeremiah experienced rejection and a lot of suffering.
But he kept preaching to those who refused to listen.
We can, too!
I’m speaking in Naperville, IL this weekend.
Will you pray for me?
Thank you all for your kind words of support.Hayyim, I mean that they come from opposite angles towards a reading of the flags, from the perspective of overall society vs the perspective of the unique role of the individual.I’m always happy to see supporting texts from Leonard Cohen, I’ve quoted him directly in one of these essays as well!
Thank you, Phyllis. I try to share a tidbit on facebook to give people the flavor of the blog. they aren’t always serious. Sometimes they’re just silly and fun. I will be writing articles a lot more often. I’m going to shoot for an article every two weeks like I did when writing for the Write Team. My goal is to gain followers who will return to read each new article. It worked for Erma Bombeck, and my voice has been compared favorably to hers.

Are you a redneck? And if you are, so what.Hmmm, isn't one of the elements of red neckery being a fundamentalist, Earth-is-5000 years-old- the-rapture-is-upon-us Christian?Don't you mean soul-less heathen hell spawn lefty athiest?

mmm! My mouth of watering, I’ve already had breakfast, and it’s only 9:51 in the morning. Is is lunchtime yet? And we ARE having cranberry pecan muffins and roast chicken for lunch aren’t we! So glad Tony has his appetite back. That’s a sure sign he’s getting better.
>La_MerEncore une fois (oh comme jÂ´avance) merci de votres vagues qui effacent mes erreurs sur cette sable virtuelle.CÂ´est bon que la langue franÃ§aise nÂ´admets pas lÂ´Antichrist. Je viens de lire que ce mot on Ã¨crit comme Ã§a en dÂ´autres langues (comme lÂ´espagnol). CÂ´est un cas pareil aux mots â€œantidiluvianoâ€ et â€œantediluvianoâ€dÃ©jÃ parlÃ© pour moi.Pour dichotomies, je suis comme lÂ´Ã¢ne de Buridan. PSLe com de Zerbquipique a Ã©tÃ© effacÃ© pour les correcteurs.
mir tut’s um die leute leid, die entlassen werden aber sonst… wayne? oder besser:das passiert, wenn man die leute mehr und mehr und mittlerweile mit einer dummdreistigkeit scheiÃŸpropaganda und nullthemen zuballert bis es nicht mehr zu ertragen ist und eine dermaÃŸene lÃ¼cke klafft zwischen realitÃ¤t und den lÃ¼gen!
Tricia, your blog is just wonderful! I will visit again, often. I haven't photographed barns in awhile, and this really inspires me. We have so many centenial barns within minutes of my house. I love viewing others' photography!
…Solo che i “mercanti armeni, ebrei e greci” erano minoranza assoluta in gruppi culturali -poi promossi a millet, nientemeno!- che, lÃ¬ come altrove, penavano da Capodanno a San Silvestro per mandare avanti la baracca. Senza neanche la soddisfazione di potersi sfogare con qualcuna di quelle furibonde bestemmie che solo la lingua toscana permette di ideare!
Is my spouse eligible to receive LASIK or PRK surgery the same way I am?I know that I can receive free refractive surgery after getting a thorough eye exam, getting my commander’s authorization, and then placed onto a waiting list, but is my wife also able to get such treatment?

that she is free to leave North Carolina with my grandson,whenever she chooses and that my son has no say in the matter, although the temporary custody order states that neither of the parents are permitted to remove the child from North Carolina. The order has been in effect since October 2009.
Great Video! Thanks for Sharing. I can’t wait to see more of your videos and hope you do one of Trinidad also. Love your work!Charlie
Aprtlenapy this is what the esteemed Willis was talkin’ ’bout.
I love these thoughts, Susie. I just recently led a ladies study on the book of Jeremiah, and it has been on of my favorites as it definitely has relevance to our day and age.
We always keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
Praying for you Susie. Haven’t checked email for awhile
