What do YOU lift your eyes up to?

Psalm 123:1, Unto you I lift my eyes. How many people in our post-Christian era lift their eyes to Elohim anymore for anything? Not many. Even most so called believers put their trust in just about everything else besides Elohim in their time of need whether it’s in medical doctors, money, .self-help psychology, the government, or themselves. For example, when they are sick, most people instinctively call their doctors first before praying to Elohim for wisdom and healing. They seldom seek YHVH when making major decisions in their lives. They rarely seek YHVH’s guidance, direction, wisdom and counsel on anything. They spend more times lifting their eyes up to their electronic devices (a modern version of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil) instead of to YHVH and his Word, and they are to addicted to the things of this world and, at the same time, blind to their own idol-worshipping habits to even recognize it. We are a lukewarm and idolatrous people. This was a concern of John, which is why he ended his first epistle with these words, “Little children, keep yourselves from idols” (1 John 5:21). If this was true then, how much more so now? YHVH help us!


Florida girl, 11, wearing headphones, looking at phone hit and killed by train

Parents and those who care for young people: PLEASE teach the young people in your life the basic rules of common sense and the necessary survival skills to function in modern life thus protecting them from needless tragedies! We are all too addicted to our electronic devices. If we’re not careful, we’re going to have a society full of mindless, zombified idiots who can’t even walk down the street without getting injured or killed.

My wife and I can’t tell you how many people we encounter in our town whose heads are glued downward to their electronic devices when crossing a busy street. They don’t even look up to check on-coming traffic before stepping off the curb. They just assume the cars will stop. Is life so cheap to them that there’s no fear of death? Are they so addicted to your devices that their brains have become mush? Dear Lord, please save us from our own stupidity! Do you anyone out there know what I mean?

An 11-year-old girl was hit and killed by an Amtrak train in Florida Wednesday after she failed to hear the train conductor’s horn blow while she was crossing the tracks, investigators said.

Yazmin White was on the way home from a supermarket before walking through a wooded area and trying to cross over the railroad tracks, according to a media release.

Polk County detectives investigating the death said the conductor blew the train horn and started braking when he saw the girl attempting to cross the tracks. Investigators said Yazmin didn’t make any indication she was aware the train was approaching — and evidence revealed she was wearing headphones at the time.

The conductor also told police she was looking down at her phone while she was walking.

The train, which had 12 passenger cars and two engines, was going about 68 miles per hour when it struck the 11-year-old.

“We are completely heartbroken and send our deepest condolences to Yazmin White’s family,” said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. “This is a tragedy no parent or family should have to go through. Please keep them in your prayers.”

Yazmin attended Davenport School of the Arts where she studied piano, according to Fox 13 Tampa.
