God is Calling…

Go up to Gilead and take balm, O virgin, the daughter of Egypt; In vain you will use many medicines; You shall not be cured. The nations have heard of your shame, And your cry has filled the land; For the mighty man has stumbled against the mighty; They both have fallen together.
Jeremiah 46:11-12 NKJV

God is calling…

Workers are worried, concerned about dying
Big money don’t care, the stock market is climbing

Liberty stands there with tears in her eyes
Acknowledging Justice has never been blind

This land that once welcomed has shuttered her door
Tariffs leave farmers desperate for more

Big Brother is watching us up from the Cloud
Systemic injustice, dead man on the ground

Stuck at crossroads, a wasted way station
In need of a Healer, our weak wounded nation


“…one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”


God is calling us to Him.

God is calling us to Pray.

God is calling us to love one another.

    Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21 NKJV

    1. I’m well on this end Lorrie, thanks so much for stopping by.
      I haven’t been on WP in a while but I guess God was calling me to write a bit. I hope all is well with you.
      And yes, we all can do our part to collectively shift toward the positive. Peace and love to you!


      1. I was so excited to see a post from you! I have noticed your absence…but what a wonderful post to come back with!! I am happy you are well. That is a very good thing given the current circumstances that surround us. I work hard each day to raise the energy…it has to make a difference…it just has to.
        I hope that God continues to call you to write…it is so obvious where your inspiration comes from 😉

      2. Thanks so much Lorrie. My retirement was short lived. I’ve been working a lot the past few months especially with Covid. It has definitely cut into my writing goals but I’m optimistic about the second part of the year. 🙂


      3. Love to hear you are optimistic!! It feels like so many terrible things had to happen to wake us up!
        Please stay safe…be well, Lilka. It is really nice to connect again. Thinking good thoughts…
