Doug Bolton, the founder of Signs of Hope, is writing a new book, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” It reaches out the military and veterans who may be battling anxiety, fear, depression, addictions, rejections, PTSD, and many other usual suspects. There are 22 military connected suicides every day. That is almost one every hour. We need to help stop those statistics. Be looking for more details about the new book. Look for updates here.
UPDATE!! In the final stages of having the book finished. Much of it is already sent off to my editor. The countdown begins!!
Do you remember “Leave it to Beaver? (It was a family show on TV back in the 50’s) I loved that show. A family crises, but resolved by the end of the show. You moved on and all was well.
We have really changed since then don’t you think? Massive amount of divorces. Suicide rates are rising fast. Many children only have one parent.
I could say a lot more, but it hurts too much to even type the words.
What has happened? Why such a different world?
We fight each other! We attack, and try to make others look bad so we can look better.
We need to understand this:
Our battle are not against people, but with the forces of evil.
The bottom line is that we all need a heart transplant. Our hearts have become corrupted. We have allowed the world to overcome us.
Friends, We are not part of this world if we truly believe.
I understand how hard it is to try to stay out of the muck and more of life. I have been to the bottom of the pits struggling to stay alive.
Here is what I have learned:
- We need to put on the armor of God. The armor is really the character and faith that you have.
- We need to talk to others with gentleness and respect. What a difference this would make.
- Suffering for what right is hard, at best, but it is right with God.
- We should never be shaken or frightened. Be bold in your faith.
It is hard to catch your breath in this day and age. We are in what they call the rat race. Well, even rats rest.
We need to go back to the basic of the Bible and live by them. The United States has been walking down the wrong path for the last eight years. Hopefully it will turn the corner and walk a new path now.
Stay the course! Talk the talk, and walk the walk. Never waver. Never give in to this world. Walk the path of righteousness, with God.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
