Portion of HOPE FOR THE CAREGIVER Monologue 8/10

 

"...The whole point of this is to speak clarity to a caregiver so that we're not floundering around wondering, you know, where do we go next? What do we do? What's going on? And I go back to this whole thing with gun safety.

 I think a lot of people rush to push their political ideology and very few people are rushing to push this in a ministry capacity, and if you think about this, with all of our [United States’] clergy combined, even those from different faith, we can still ask the same question, are the firearms secured?

Think about praying with the mother in despair over her addicted child. You don't have to wait for legislation. You could go ahead and ask the question now, hey, does this kid have access to guns? 

And you know, you're not going to stop it. I mean, somebody just went on a rampage with a knife. I mean, we can't exactly go out there and pass legislation to get to knives.

Well, we can, but legislation doesn't do anything, y'all know that and even if it does, it's still not going to do anything until they pass it—I'm talking about something today, right now that you could do.

Think about, think about if this man yesterday who shot and killed his wife and then killed himself over healthcare issues down in Florida.  If somebody spoke life to this man, what a different outcome that would be. You can't insure it. You can't make it happen that way, but you give them a fighting chance and you know, results are in God's department, but we have a responsibility to be stewards of this message. Are we just glad we got our salvation, glad we got our knowledge —and then everybody else is just on their own. 

I mean, don't we have to be responsible with the information that God has entrusted to us to be the light of the world? And if we're not going to speak light into these situations, who, who are they going to listen to? You know, when you've got states passing medically assisted death and they're all just gung-ho to, to pass that so that you know, physicians could provide drugs that go ahead and take a patient out. How big a leap is it for a caregiver to go ahead and just take matters in their own hand and say, okay, let's just be done with this? When you got a governor of Virginia who is a doctor himself saying that if a child with special needs is born and it's severely deformed, we're going to put the child aside and make it comfortable and then we'll let the mother make the decision on whether or not we'll execute the child. 

How big a leap is it for a family with a special needs child that has pushed him to the breaking point to go ahead and just end that child's life? Don't tell me it doesn't happen, it just happened in Oregon a year ago this month. Well, the 28-year-old girl who took a gun and shot her child and then turned the gun on herself.  Over in Dixon, Tennessee, a father of a special needs boy, if nonverbal Autistic boy, beat him to death and the mother watched. Then he told the community that child ran off, which happens with Autism. There's a lot of problems with elopement.  There are dark thoughts that that get into these people's minds, to all our minds. [It] is scary. It gets into all our minds and if we're not hearing words of life on a regular basis, who are we listening to? What are we listening to?

The world is increasingly throwing death as a solution to us. Think about it. Look at all the headlines. Don't just take my word for it. Look at it yourself. The world is throwing death as a solution. Medically assisted death, abortion.  When Roe versus Wade was passed and set up as the law of the land …and I watched Bill de Blasio this week argue about it— and he was asked point blank by Sean Hannity, "Do you believe that an abortion, that a woman can have an abortion all the way to the moment of birth … and he wouldn't answer the question, he would just simply say, "I believe in Roe versus Wade."

Well, I don't believe in Roe versus Wade! I believe that our Savior bore the penalty of death and we don't need to use death as a solution. But these people are not going to be content until they can eliminate by killing anything that makes them feel uncomfortable or in any way unpleasant. 

Don't take my word for it. Look at the media every single day. “Well, I wouldn't want to live with this and this and this.”

Well, you don't know what you want to live with! My wife lives with more pain than anybody I know; her body is so broken and yet she has value with what she does, and she trusts God with her pain, and He speaks to her in it.

C.S Lewis said that you don't, suffering is God's megaphone to us. and the world is going to continue to reinforce this [Death] over and over and over, until we get rid of people with disabilities, people who are aging, who have outlived their usefulness according to the world, [or] children that we do not want.

You look at Barack Obama, he said some years ago that if his daughter makes a mistake, he doesn't want her to be punished with a baby. These were his words, they're not my words, they are his words. 

And "anything that is undesirable, we need to get rid of." That's what the world says, the scripture tells us something far different ...that we trust God with these things that come along in our lives that are, that are challenging, that are painful. 

We hang on to Him in this—not just look for some way to just go ahead and pull the trigger and be done with it. But our natural inclination is to want to be free of all this pain and sorrow and suffering and unpleasantness or fear, whatever it is we got to deal with. So, let's just kill it. We don't have any more money for, to, you know, healthcare, whatever but let's just go ahead and take our own lives and be done with it.

 This is happening now. It happened yesterday in Florida. Go look at the news.

So, what are we doing about it? What are we doing about it? 

This show is dedicated to speaking to those people who are watching this unfold, who are so discouraged as they watch someone else suffer—to go into that heartbreaking place, and point them to a path of safety.

I get it. I truly get it, but God has not abandoned you. God is not forsaking you. This is not some kind of goofy punishment. He's not arbitrary. He is not reckless. He is not whimsical. He is God all by himself, and He alone is working in ways that we cannot possibly fathom …and so, we learned to trust Him. A lady wrote me last week on her Facebook page. Her husband has seizures all the time, and their nine-year-old boys said, “Why would God do this to us?”  [Music starts]

I remember our nine-year-old asked when his mother (Gracie) just kept going through surgery, after surgery—losing legs and everything else. He said, “How can I trust God with my hurts … when I see what He allows mom to go through?”

And I answered him with wisdom that I didn't know, it wasn't my wisdom and I said, “You know what, I don't understand all these things, but I know that He stretched out his arms and gave his life for us.  If he loves us that much, I'm going to trust Him.

This is Hope for the Caregiver; we'll be right back.

Hope for the Caregiver is the family caregiver outreach of Standing With Hope - a ministry committed to the wounded and those who care for them.

The whole point of this is to speak clarity to a caregiver so that we are not floundering around wondering you know what where we go next. What we do what was going on and I go back to this whole thing with gun safety and in this is a real, this is a real bird my saddle and I'm doing this show from out here in Montana so I was out riding this week. I did go out in the clear my head little bit on Monday and settle it with the couple local Cowboys some 5050 cows got away from the herd way for the national force for their grazing and so we went out to find him and we evidently went to the wrong place because we were looking for cows at all the wrong places, and the yogurt left that that's that's actually very funny in and out but that was a that was modified to skip after trail run little bit drunk. Funny scales were not were not in nice areas. A bit steep, but it's but it's beautiful area but that's a bird, my saddle, assisting with guns because I think a lot of people rushed push their political ideology and very few people are rushing to to push this into ministry capacity and it if you you think about this that that all of our clergy combined. Even though some different faith, we can still ask the same question are the firearm secured, you know, think about praying with her mother in despair over her addicted child. You don't have to wait for legislation.

You can go the question now. I does this kid have access to guns and you stop them.

So we just went on a rampage with a knife but we can't exactly go out there pass legislation against knives. We can would legislation doesn't do anything, you'll know that. And even if it does, it still doesn't do anything until they pass it on to my something today, right now, that you could do think about think about if this this man yesterday who shot and killed his wife and then killed himself over healthcare issues that Florida and if somebody was speaking life to this man, what a different outcome.

It would be you can ensure it you can't make it happen that way, but you give them a fighting chance and you don't results are in God's department, but we have a responsibility to be stewards of this message, you know, do we just glad we got our salvation and we glad we got our knowledge and then everybody else is just on their own. I mean, don't we have to be responsible with the information that God has entrusted us with artwork to be the light of the world it if were not to speak light into the situations who, what really can listen to you when you got states passing medically assisted death and they're all just gung ho to to pass that so the little physicians can provide drugs to go ahead and take a patient out how big a leap is it for a caregiver to go ahead and just take matters in their own hands.

Okay, let's just be done with this when you got a governor of Virginia who is a doctor himself saying that if the child with special needs is boredom in it.

It's it's severely deformed working to put the child aside make you comfortable. That will let the mother make the decision on whether that will execute the child how big a leap is it for family with a special needs child that is pushing the breaking point to go ahead and just in that child's life and don't tell me doesn't happen, it just happened in Oregon a year ago this month with a 28-year-old girl who took a gun and shot her child and then turned the gun on herself. Madison County, Tennessee, or maybe Dixon goes over Dixon Tennessee, a father of a special needs boy of nonverbal autistic boy beat him to death.

The mother watched. Then he told the community the child read off, which happens with autism. There's a lot of problems with elopement. These are dark thoughts that that get into these people's minds to all of us are about to scare it affect. He gets in all overabundance if were not hearing words of life on a regular basis who we listening to what we listening to because the world is increasingly throwing death as a solution to us.

Think about looking all the head.

I don't just take my word for looking at yourself, the world is throwing death as a solution medically assisted death. Abortion you know what what would would Roe versus Wade was passed in and set up as a law of the land and I was watching Bill de Blasio this week argue about it and he was asked point-blank was Sean Hannity. You know, do you believe that a that abortion that a woman can have an abortion all the way to the moment of birth and he wouldn't answer the question just simply say I believe in Roe versus Wade.

Well, I don't believe in Roe versus Wade. I believe that our our Savior bore the penalty of death and we don't need to use death is a solution but these people are not to be content until they can eliminate by killing anything that makes them feel uncomfortable or in any way unpleasant. Don't take my word for it.

Look at the media every single day is what I would want to live with this.

It is this what you don't know what you want to live with my wife lives with more pain than anybody I know. Her body is so broken in yet she has value with what she doesn't she trust God with her pain and he speaks to her in it. CS Lewis said that suffering is God's megaphone to us and and and in the world is going to continue to reinforce this over and over and over till we get rid of people with disabilities. People who are aging who about you live there useless. According to the world children that we do not want you look at Barack Obama.

He said some years ago that it if his daughter makes a mistake. You don't want to be punished with a baby within the these were his words are not my words are his words and anything that is undesirable. We did get rid of what the world says Scripture tells us something far different than we trust God with these things that come along in our lives that are there challenging their painful that we we hang onto him in this.

Not just look for some way to just go ahead and pull the trigger be done with it, but our natural inclination is to want to be free of all this pain and sorrow and suffering and unpleasantness or fear or whatever it is we got it.

It was a list just kill it but I mean more money for you healthcare whatever is just go ahead take our lives be done with this is happening now it happened yesterday in Florida. Look at the news. So what are we doing about what are we doing about it. This show is dedicated to speaking to those people who are watching this unfold, who are so discouraged as they want someone else suffer and to to go into that heartbreaking place, and point them to a path of safety. I get it. I truly get it. But God has not abandoned you got is not forsaking you. This is not some kind of goofy punishment. He's not arbitrary. He is not reckless.

He is not whimsical. He is God all by himself and he alone is working in ways that we cannot possibly fathom. And so we learn to trust that lady wrote to me last week on her Facebook page and her husband has seizures all the time and their nine-year-old boy said no. Why would God do this to us remember our nine-year-old mother to scapegoat surgery surgery losing legs. Everything else is how can I trust God with my hurt with us see what he allows mom to go through and I answered him with wisdom that I didn't know it when my wisdom said you know what I don't understand But I know that he stretched out his arms and gave his life That trust is his hope became
