The Sons of Glory: A space series??? (working title, not final title)

The idea of What Next has always captured my imagination... God completes what he's told us about (earth 6K, tribulation/ratpure, earth 1K reign of Christ, renewed heaven and earth...)... THEN what?
WHY are SO many people interested in space travel movies, and alien documentaries?
What if we ARE going to be in the stars traveling in ships to other worlds?
What would that look like?
What if the Son's of God (Romans 8) were the Prime Race, rulers of the galaxy, but other races were just as much a part of the plan of heaven? Humans were the Levites in a galactic sense? 
Other races of creation had the same struggles and rewards, same heaven and hell, but with a prime difference of not needing direct sacrifice/salvation. 
Ponder::
Jesus died for SIN not sins. Sins (actions) are the result of SIN (spiritual condition). ADAM was the first MAN, Son of God, Created in God's likeness. Angels pre-date MAN, and some of those sinned and fell, but only MAN had the right of redemption as he wa…

Power of Prayer (Series) | How to have a daily dynamic prayer life (Message) | Jimmy Evans

Power of Prayer (Series) | How to have a daily dynamic prayer life (Message) | Jimmy Evans @GatewayPeople Church, Southlake Texas | My Church Notes from service today
Why we pray: 
Acknowledge God, allowing Him access to us (generally and specifically)He knocks on the door of your heart, He doesn't kick it down. You need to open it to Him (not just once at salvation, but every single day). He will reside in you up to, but limited to, the space you give to Him willingly.A day without prayer is a boast against God, a day without prayer is a day without his FULL assistance, direction, provision, or  protection (to a point, one could say, your cooperation with it). You can't make the play, if you didn't show up to practice.We are sheep. There are no:Homing Sheep (Sheep can't find their own way).Pack Sheep (they can't bear burdens well).Attack Sheep (they can't defend themselves).You need a Shepherd to guide/lead you, bear your burdens, defend/protect. If you try to d…

*Sigh* Venting made me feel better...

Weeks now... I have no "get up and go". I haven't been able to focus at work or at home. I'm practically useless in both places.

I have a few fits of mental activity & acuity, usually not more than minutes at a time, followed by hours/days of *BLAH*.

I eat but I'm not satisfied, I really just want a drink. Sober since 2002 doesn't even mean anything to me anymore. Sober why? For what? What's the point?

Work why? To make money to pay bills to have a house so that I can eat so that I can live so that I can.. work? Vicious awful cycle.

I show at work with a never ending to-do list that will never be under control. Leadership that doesn't listen or understand. And for what? So some spoiled idiot that didn't read their contract or understand the basics of sales negotiations, and will probably vote for Hillary or Trump, can whine in my ear?

I want off this ride.

On the other hand...

I enjoyed reading DB McDowell's "Girl who stole tomorrow"…

Congratulations?

Can I use the word "Congratulate" in reference to someone who is happy about their decision, but I disagree with it?
If a person I meet is (in my opinion) about to take the wrong job, marry the wrong person, or make another choice that they see as good, right, and happy, but I know will bring them pain later... can I really be happy for them, or congratulate them?

That was the question my wife and I pondered the other night. So I looked up the meaning of the word "Congratulate".

congratulation (n.)mid-15c., from Latin congratulationem (nominative congratulatio), noun of action from past participle stem of congratulari "wish joy," from com-"together, with" (see com-) + gratulari "give thanks, show joy," from gratus "agreeable" (see grace (n.)).Congratulate (Dictionary.Com)verb (used with object), congratulated, congratulating.1. to express pleasure to (a person), as on a happy occasion: They congratulated him on his marriage.2.

Malaise... Listless...

When I thought about my mood lately... the words Malaise and Listless came to mind. So I looked them up:
ma·laiseNOUN :: a general feeling of discomfort, illness, or uneasiness whose exact cause is difficult to identify: Malaise is a non-specific symptom and can present in the slightest ailment, such as an emotion(causing fainting, a vasovagal response) or hunger (light hypoglycemia), to the most serious conditions (cancer, stroke, heart attack, internal bleeding, etc.). Malaise expresses a patient's uneasiness that "something is not right" that may need a medical examination to determine the significance.********
