[12/22/15]   The Lord has given me a strong warning not to think like everyone else does. He said,

“Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do,
and don’t live in dread of what frightens them.

Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life.
He is the one you should fear.

He is the one who should make you tremble.
He will keep you safe. Isaiah 8:11-14
