“People ask me, ‘How can you...not be friggin’ mad at God?' "

Where do you go when you want to tell someone something, or maybe you just want someone else to know? Alot of times the Daily Paul is one of those places for me. My sister's husband, a Pastor, is dying and there was a write-up in the Kansas City Star on Saturday. So I have attached the article below. There are also some pics and a video at the site.

My brother-in-law has an 11 year old daugher. He is the love of my sister's life. Their 2 sons are in college. Pharma couldn't do a thing for him, but he is Walking with God. Even when facing death one can experience peace and liberty!

God’s Next Assignment for Joey Butler: dying

Despite an operation that took his left kidney, numerous treatments and trips to the University of Kansas Cancer Center and to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, nothing worked. He has decided there will be no more treatments.

“It’s been a raging hand-to-hand combat internally with discouragement. Because you know your body is not the same. It can’t do things that you used to do...Look, I could have never orchestrated these last 14 months more perfectly with the amount of people I’ve been able to talk to,” he says. “People ask me, ‘How can you go through this heavy trial and not be friggin’ mad at God? Or scared out of your mind?’ ”

This life is but a breath away from Eternity

I have walked thru the valley of the shadow of death. Multiple surgeries and multiple chemo treatments and I rested in the Shadow of the Almighty, not knowing the future of my present life, but knowing all was and would be well.

Job 1:21 KJV
And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.

Job 13:15 KJV
Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.

Psalm 116:15 KJV
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the deathof his saints.

Revelation 21:4 KJV
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Revelation 21:8 KJV
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Oooo

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."

God better hurry, Pharma is working on that plan, too. Well, Pharma is good with the death part but they have a pill for every other one of those disorders.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

The good news!

When God does it, He won't just be masking the symptoms! Those things will be gone, gone, gone…Jubilee will be for eternity! Oh, and Pharma will be gone, gone, gone too!

Thanks for stopping in Fishy. My brother-in-law has an 11 year old daugher. He is the love of my sister's life. Their 2 sons are in college. Pharma couldn't do a thing for him, but he is Walking with God.

Shame on me!

Bear, that was a lovely post about a very serious situation, and I went for the cheap joke.
My VERY best to you and yours, and thank you for taking the joke well.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Hi Fishy, I didn't take it as

Hi Fishy, I didn't take it as a cheap joke. I was glad to see you stop in and say something. Thanks for the well wishes, oh and the apology too, that was kind of you. Especially since I am feeling blue anyway, so now I smile :)
