Hello friends. You know, the day started out good enough, that should have been my notice that things were going to happen. I can’t really get into specifics because I would be digging my own grave so to speak; with that said I will have to speak in more general terms. Another post that, for the most part is simply my own version of therapy I guess. Not many people can understand how I process things so at least writing it down helps I guess. Maybe someone can relate, not sure.
So in very general terms, I guess I’m just tired of being screwed over. Every time I turn around people are achieving things and obtaining their goals all the while being as fake as a 3.00 bill. I know that I could be a better person, I know I could go to church more, blah blah blah. I also could shout from the rooftops all the good things I do but, oh wait, Jesus told us not to that. So, which is it; be fake and get what you want or be real and get screwed over? Just another battle I know but one that I am increasingly getting tired of fighting. I wish I could be more specific but alas I can only speak in general terms today I’m afraid. Just needed a forum to vent with. I’m not the easiest person to understand; most people don’t, heck most people don’t even try. Maybe someone out there can relate….Maybe that is why I go through this crap so people know they aren’t alone. Right now I have no idea but if you are reading this; thank you.
Peace and Love,
Good morning everyone! Another day, another cup of coffee. Can we all be in agreement that coffee is the only thing that makes the morning bright? Can I get an amen? Lol
I mean of course there is the whole God thing but alas God created coffee so if God is good, so is coffee! In all seriousness friends, my prayer for you, me, and everyone around us today is that somehow, someway, we would tell Lucifer to go to where he belongs and tap into that power that God has given us through His Holy Spirit. Power that we can not even fathom yet somehow we deny it. Aren’t we all just all little tired of the games our Enemy plays? How about a new game, we allow the Spirit to give us the power to defeat our trials and bring the Light and Truth in our lives in ALL we do. It is possible you know, I’m on this journey with you; we can do this! Have a great day everyone.
Peace and Love,
May God comfort and guide us as we sleep, amen?
Good evening friends. Just a quick thought of the night before starting the new week. I have been thinking a lot about the state of the Church as we know it today. My thought for the night is this; Jesus tells us to not love the world or anything in it, so, if we are “doing church” the same way the world does entertainment is it still church?
Would love to hear your thoughts,
Peace and Love,
Good morning and I am back! So here goes!
Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! This has been a long time coming and I want to thank my son Josh for being the tech support here to set all of this up. I used to just post on Facebook but quite honestly there are some things I would like to express that might just get me in trouble there; so with my passion for writing and to help others here I am! You might be thinking, “why is this blog different than all the others”? Well, I’m glad you asked! For so long I have felt something is wrong with the Church and with religion in general. I asked Jesus into my heart back in 1989 and for a long time I played the religious dogma game. Read my Bible, go to church on Sunday’s and Wednesday’s, serve in any way possible, don’t cuss, blah blah blah. Now don’t get me wrong, those are all great things to strive for, but what if all that serving is really going against what Christ Himself called us to do? What if instead of a haven for the lost, we have created just another Idol for us to serve? What if the very reason Christ formed the Church died years ago and now we are really serving and following the Enemy of our souls.
If you are still here, great! You have taken the first step in removing that veil, I veil that I believe has been set on purpose. On purpose to deceive, destroy, and distort God’s purpose for us and His Church. I have so much more to share with you all, along with some daily insights so I am glad you are here and I look forward to interacting with you all very soon.
Peace and Love,
Good morning everyone and welcome to the weekend! Woot Woot! I must admit that this past week was really tough; a lot of drama going on in places that I have never dealt with before and just some emotional and physical trials. However, I serve a God that stand by me through it all and makes me stronger for it when I get to the other side. Awesome is He!
Every day lately it seems as if God is teaching me a new lesson. I don’t know about all of you but sometimes, while exciting, I’m like, “God, I haven’t even learned the last lesson slow down!” Well God’s timing and pace is definitely not ours so He continues to throw things at me at a feverish pace. While I am not mastering any of them I am learning gradually and what I want to share today is the lesson of the Flesh VS. The Spirit. I must add this disclaimer, if you are not a believer of Christ Jesus and have turned your life over to Him, this lesson will mean nothing. You simply do not have the ability or the resources to truly learn this lesson; neither do I , however He does and that is Whom I turn things over to. So if you have never made that decision to give your life over to Him and accept His free (to you) gift of eternal life, please do so today! If you have any questions on this at all, I will leave my email address at the end of this message. Now, on to it!
See, my friends, as believers we have a choice daily. We can either die to ourselves and let the Spirit of Christ lead us in all things, or we can give in to that nasty flesh that Jesus died such a horrible death to get rid of. (Of course he did rise again, ya know). For me, that struggle seems to revolve around weight. I have been heavy my whole life and to be honest its getting to a dangerous point. While I gave up smoking some 21 years ago, I just replaced that addiction with food and now I am up to a staggering 355 pounds. God has been very gracious in that I have had relatively few health problems but I can tell now that I am almost 43 years old, His patience and Grace on this is wearing thin. For a long time I thought it was so simple; just stop eating as much right? Well for us as believers it goes a little bit deeper than that. For anyone that has weight issues like me, many times the food intake becomes less about fulfilling a hunger pain as it is about satisfying the taste buds. “Man, I’m really not hungry but I know how awesome that chocolate shake would taste”. The examples could go on and on; so what God showed me is that by doing that, I am not satisfying a natural desire to eat but instead a sinful one that only satisfies the flesh and does nothing for the Spirit. So again, it all comes down to choice. Do I satisfy me body or INSTEAD turn to the Spirit for direction?
My friends, maybe your problem isn’t food maybe its lust, maybe its money obsession, it could be anything but in all things that we struggle with, it always comes down to a simple word; choice. This day, in all that you do, make the choice to not follow your fleshly mind and heart but instead do as the Scriptures command us to do and “die” to yourself and LIVE through the Spirit of Jesus Christ that He paid such a high price to give you. Amen? Thanks everyone and if you have been helped by any of my blog entries, please let me hear your feedback and share this blog with other. God bless everyone and have a great day!
