Christian Pens: October 2018

I was thinking about doing something about possessed souls and/or Demons that the Bible actually admits are real, but then, on the way home yesterday, God spoke to me with a message that several of us need to hear right now. I don't know about every one of you, but I'm tired of this world dragging me down. I'm tired of supposed friends hurting me, and I'm tired of being taken for granted and being used. I'm tired of so much of the pain and stress of this world. And although I do not know about you all, I do know that I am not alone in these thoughts -- or in the thought that so often runs through my head that I want to go home. A thought that even comes to me when I'm at home, when I'm surrounded with my babies, and sometimes even when Drew's here too. But the thing is, this is not my home. We're all waiting to go home. We're all waiting to go home to be with the ones who love us who we've lost, and with our Heavenly Father, the Father of us all who is always there for us even when our own Earthly fathers let us down or are taken from us.

No wonder we're yearning for home.

So that brought about this month's challenge.

Every participant has a choice and can use either of the following challenges to create anything they like as long as the message is in there somewhere.

Our Verse:
"For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal."
-2 Corinthians 4: 17-18

Our Alternative Challenge:
The Promise, by The Martins

I never said that I would give you silver or gold
Or that you would never feel the fire or shiver in the cold
But I did say you'd never walk through this world alone
And I did say, don't make this world your home
I never said that fear wouldn't find you in the night
Or that loneliness was something you'd never have to fight
But I did say I'd be right there by your side
And I did say I'll always help you fight
'Cause you know I made a promise that I intend to keep
My grace will be sufficient in every time of need
My love will be the anchor that you can hold onto
This is the promise, this is the promise I made to you
I never said that friends would never turn their backs on you
Or that the world around you wouldn't see you as a fool
But I did say like me, you'll surely be despised
And I did say my ways confound the wise
I didn't say you'd never taste the bitter kiss of death
Or have to walk through chilly Jordan to enter into rest
But I did say I'd be waiting right on the other side (yeah, yeah)
And I did say I'll dry every tear you cry
'Cause you know I made a promise that I've prepared a place
And some day sooner than you think you'll see me face to face
And you'll sing with the angels and a countless multitude
This is the promise, this is the promise I've made to you
So just keep on walkin', don't turn to the left or right
And in the midst of darkness, let this be your light
That hell can't separate us and you're gonna make it through
This is the promise, this is the promise I made to you, oh
This is the promise, this is the promise I made to you

And here's our one entry from last month, my own Toward the Future starring DC Comics' Catwoman and Alfred with some mild Batman/Catwoman.

Happy creating, and Be Blessed, one and all!
