Are you comfortably numb to government abuse of power yet?
Do you willingly trade liberty for a keeper giving food, housing and false promises of safety and even revenge.
Get your priorities right and value God’s laws of Nature over ever changing government laws.
Getting into acceptance of where we are and working from there makes sense. I have been there for a while and do try to push for a Zion society as we are learning in Priesthood or Relief Society lately. You cannot separate parts of life from living the gospel so I can see why some would see Lenny Henderson as preachy.
Army officer Scott Smiley who was blinded in duty, is inspirational. He makes the point about needing to accept and move on with life, making changes as needed but not excuses. Captain Smiley has written a book called “Hope Unseen” available here or probably at most bookstores. His story needs another look for me and as I love inspirational and spiritual stories, I may just get this book. I heard him say yesterday his life is better now than it ever was before. Blindness has given him more uses for God in showing His Glory (my words).
“Since that day, Scotty Smiley has surfed in Hawaii, skied in Vail, skydived, climbed Mount Rainier, completed a triathlon, and graduated from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business with his MBA. The Army Times named Scotty its Soldier of the Year in 2007 and in 2008 he won an ESPY as the world’s Best Outdoor Athlete. Scotty, a recipient of the Bronze Star and Purple Heart, recently taught the core course in leadership at West Point and now commands the Warrior Transition Unit at West Point’s Keller Army Medical Center.” from Blue Rudder
