Good morning everyone,
Next time something good happens in your life, take the time to praise the One from which it comes. Amen?
Have a blessed day everyone,
Hope all my peeps are having a great Friday!! Be blessed.
SMILE and BELIEVE
Merry Christmas Eve everyone. As I’m sure everyone else has as well, a lot going on the next 2 days so no long post just a big thank you to those that read my blog and especially those that have offered such great input and advice along the way. Enjoy today and be on the lookout for Santa!
For any Miami fans out there are you ready for these two to be back at it next year?
That will make me SMILE!!
Hey everyone! Sorry this is coming late but I had one heck of a morning. However, here I am and by the above photo can you tell what is about to happen?? Oh yeah…
The above picture is what will be happening tomorrow starting at 7AM. Me and my boys will be watching the above compliment of movies to get prepared for our 9:30 PM showing of The Last Jedi. Other than my family I have two huge passions; the Miami Dolphins and Star Wars. I have been a fan ever since Return of the Jedi premiered and Vader tossed the Emperor overboard and teased up as the audience stood up and applauded.
Some make think its weird but Star Wars inspires me; it shows that even in this fictional world Good overcomes the darkest of Evil. It shows that sometimes that journey requires much sacrifice but in the end if your desire is to do good, it will prevail. I have no doubt that The Last Jedi will continue this journey in a special way and in time I will give you all my review.
Until tomorrow friends, May the Force be with You!!
Good morning everyone!If you are reading this then you made it through Monday, congrats! See, Monday’s aren’t that bad are they? (Pointing myself to corner in shame…) Seriously though, we made it and Friday is just a couple of days away. Actually there really is no difference between the days, we just like to give an excuse why we hate going to work so much lol. Anyways, here we go.
One of the main reasons I started this blog was to, in my view, lift the veil of deception out there that the 21st Century Church and others have brought to the table. Deception that has turned our following of Christ into a man-made religion that the Pharisees of old would be very proud of. One of these such deceptions is going on as we speak; more specifically the events that took place this past weekend. I don’t know all of the details because quite honestly I keep a far distance from the news outlets since they clearly have their own agenda. I know enough, however, to speak intelligently about it and to give you this fresh perspective….
See everyone wants this to be about race, President Trump, white supremacist groups, nazis, etc. Or we want this to be about the “left” and how they take distort everything to counter. Well, it really isn’t folks; it may be under the guise of these descriptions but it is something much simplier and more evil than you think. Good vs. Evil. That is it, that is all, don’t forget to tip your waitress, have a great night. You might be like “what?”, it can’t be that simple! (It really is….) You can package it however you like but ALL of this comes down to Good vs. Evil, God vs. Satan, Jesus vs. Lucifer, call it what you will but its good vs evil.
See we have pushed God and His Son out of our lives, our government, our schools, and our homes. WHAT THE HECK DID YOU EXPECT WOULD HAPPEN? Did you think that all would be rosy because you put this person or that person in the White House? Did your 8 years of democratic rule make things better? Has electing Trump made it all better? No and it hasn’t because we as a HUMAN race, are ignoring the true problem. We have asked God to get lost and folks situations like this past weekend will happen as a result. The old saying is true; you never know what you had until its gone…..
Lucifer has tricked you my friends; he has tricked you into thinking you don’t need God. That somehow we would all live more peacefully if we removed God from the equation. Well, I ask you, HAS IT?? You have been fooled and going to your buildings once a week and lifting your hands is not the answer, we need to TRULY repent! (Turn away). We need to turn from these lifestyles and paths in our lives that only evil can provide and turn to the One True God that can restore and make all things new. Want racism to go away? Put God first. It’s not a skin thing, its a SOUL thing. End of story folks; as always the choice is up to you. Keep living in the Lie or take off the veil and ask God to take over, truly take over. Then and only then can Love really exist among us…
Peace and Love,
Good Monday morning! Just a very quick post to say remember this; no matter how bad your Monday is today, someone is always got it worse. Be thankful for the blessings God has given you and move forward!
Peace and Love,
Good morning everyone and welcome to Sunday! Hope you all had a great Saturday, I know I did. Got to spend some time with my soon to be Daughter early in the day then with my youngest son later watching a scare the poop out of you movie. (It is kind of our thing since no one else in the family likes them). Also had a relatively sick free day which was definitely needed; I almost feel human again. My hip what my hip is; learning to live with it I guess until the doctor can fix me haha. Now onto the meat……
I posted this quote from Ted Dekker because he has such a grasp on what has happened to us as believers. I mean, do we not always try to analyze things with our brains? God did give us our brains to use but He gave us something even more powerful to use; our hearts. He also tells us that our lives are not encapsulated in one moment but in a series of moments throughout our lives; in essence, our journey. A journey that is often filled with many “noises”. Everywhere we go we have something trying to distract us; our phones, our tablets, our PC’s, our TV’s, all filled with one purpose; to distract us and keep us moving like the pervebial gerbil on his wheel…….
However, before we can truly start on our journey that God has laid out for us every day, we must be still. Be still in our thoughts, in our actions, and in our hearts. We must be still so when God speaks to us we can actually hear what He is saying and not just assume that something is “what God put on my heart”. How do we know when we are so distracted? More often than not its really what WE want, not necessarily what God has for us. To know for sure we must be still so God can truly transform our hearts and our minds. Have a great Sunday everyone! Love to hear from you and welcome to the new people that started following this writer yesterday; he very much appreciates it 😉
Peace and Love,
Good morning everyone and welcome to Saturday! Sorry that I haven’t posted anything in a couple of days but it has been a bit of a crappy stretch for me health wise and just didn’t have it in me to write anything. I’m about 85% or so; still have the lingering cough and of course the hip issue (which I will get to in a minute) but overall feel like I’m at least on the right path again. Hope everyone is doing well out there and would love to hear from you guys. You can communicate to me through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and of course right here as well.
So, apparently I am officially mortal…..For those that don’t know a lot of my backstory, one of the more finer moments in my life happened when I thought it would be a great idea to not tackle other people but instead up the ante and try and tackle a car. Didn’t work out real well for either of us but I think the car probably got the worst of it lol. Seriously though I was getting off the city bus at the ripe old age of 14 and didn’t look both ways, darted out and BAM! Got flipped up in the air, somehow landed enough on my feet that I was able to walk about 20 yards before collapsing over a railing….I don’t remember much after that except for waking up in the hospital about 12 hours later not having any idea what happened. I was truly blessed that day because one half second either way in time and I would not be here writing this blog. God was in control even then….
I tell you this backdrop story of mine because I had thought that all my wounds had healed; not so much. See many people have told me I waddle rather than walk because one leg is shorter than the other. Really though its not my leg but my hip and back area got knocked pretty good and I never really got it taken care of; so now at the ripe old age of 46 its back and back with a vengeance…
Now, keep in mind my pain tolerance is pretty low, even for a guy, but this pain I knew was different so I went to doc about it. He did some X-rays and I got the call yesterday that I have some “very significant” arthritis in said hip and need to go to an Orthopedic specialist. I do understand this is not life threatening or anything like that, but it did give me my very first sense that “hey, goofball, you really won’t live forever”. It also reminded me of a very dark time in my life where by all rights I should have died that day. (Satan has been trying to take me out ever since). It reminds me that I’m over half way done with this crazy thing called life and my physical body will never be the same. Again, there are those in my life that are dealing with so much worse, but for me, this is a little bit of a sobering reminder of my mortality. Make sense?
I’m very aware that me losing weight couldn’t hurt the situation, however, I also know I would be dealing with this heavy or not. Back in the 80’s cars were still made with steel and so were not as forgiving as they may be today. This pain in my hip is that constant reminder; maybe the new doc will be able to help, maybe not, but as for me the first reminder that my days are not as many as they used to be just creeped up and said hello. Cute thing though that I will continue to remember as well that even though my earthly days are getting smaller, my eternal days are just around the corner. Maybe someone out there is also dealing with a similar experience? I would love to hear from you about it! Leave a comment in the comments section or however you see fit. In the meantime remember also that God is still in control and while the earth will reclaim your body, God has your eternal soul which if given to Him will live for all eternity where pain does not exist…..
Peace and love my friends, Happy Saturday!!
