“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Another week draws to a close. Once again I praise my God. He has been with me day and night. The aching of this life cannot drown out his voice that continually whispers to me "Be still and know that I am God."[1] 

The culture may say it will help me kill myself. It's another way of saying "We can't handle your pain so we won't handle your pain." My culture would rather dispose of people like me than find solutions to our anguish (and theirs'). 

When I'm told I have no friends, I know it is not true. I will worship the Holy name of Jesus. He is a friend like no other. 

Jesus loves me. Nothing the world does to me can separate me from His love. [2] That same love is available to all who call on His name and believe in Him. [3]

No matter what comes my way, at the end of each week I still have countless reasons to be thankful for the love of God.
