The Book of Jeremiah Chapter 31 v-19
19 For after I turned away, I repented; after I came to myself, I struck my thigh; I was ashamed, even humiliated, because I bore the disgrace of my youth.
What do you look back on and regret from your youth? How many times did you use the Lord’s Name in vain? How many times did you steal from your family, friends or foes? What was the last straw that broke the Camel’s Back? When did you really strike your knee and say, “Enough is enough!” Jeremiah speaks of this repenting the absolute Truth of knowing God First; living in Reality! Amen. Every aspect of your life’s disrespect will one day become visible if not at the judgment day when God separates you from the right and/or the left. Something many aren’t sure will happen yet it is told by Christ Himself.
The Messiah Jeremiah once Prophesied about said in Matthew 25 verses 31 thru 36; “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’
Many have left the faith seeking comfort in a world of lies unable to recognize what God gave in His Son by establishing the Church that “the gates of Netherworld will not prevail against.” We have sought our own way denying Christ Himself by allowing others to thwart your true surrender. It’s such a shame to see others deny the faith for the comforts of the world yet the world will end and where will you spend eternity? In the valley of death you will see your Maker; what will He say to you? You persevered you maintained the faith and love has been given to others by the hope in Me you shared because you repented and believed in the True Presence of Me Soul and Divinity.
Today I’m sharing a picture of a Crucifix in Spain. In the Monastery of St. Anne and St. Joseph in Cordoba Spain a priest rejected a man's confession because of his frequent sinning, and as the priest denied him a noise was heard from the Crucifix and the right hand of Jesus came down and the Christ whispered, ‘I Am the One who shed My Blood for this man, not you.’ Remember to forgive just as He forgives all sin. Amen.
Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. Kairos 56. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. Deacon Sam health and well-being. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Shamed was I humiliating in my youth**
Away turned I choosing to repent
I finally settled down in Truth
Thigh mine struck as I was convinced
Shamed was I humiliating in my youth
Adolescence's disgrace bore I as proof
