Merry Christmas and the best New Year ever. Things are changing in our world and we need to get up to date. Our phones, software computers and such force us to update to stay current and operational. It is just as needful in real life awareness. The days ahead will me more and more taxing as we near the return of Jesus. The holiday season reminds of the power of giving. Contrary to popular belief it is not a magical but a miraculous season. Jesus is the gift that keeps on giving. His gifts are good and perfect and they have eternal value. Time we receive the wonder of eternal security through Christ Jesus. See Why Jesus
Well it really is a new season for us all. Time we get out the box of same old ways, attitudes, and results. We can blame the world around us but what we can change is our responses to it. This is our due/do season. The literal high time to make it happen for us. Time to go after and get what you keep putting off for later. Join me as I endeavor to live my dreams and have and enjoy my life daily not some time out there. So lets do what it takes to tap into the plans and promises of God.
Happy New Year. We made it out of last year with all the challenges, storms and victories. No matter how it appears life can turn direction in a moment and loss or defeat are not terminal just disappointing and sometimes difficult. I am concerned about the challenges our nation is currently facing. I for one am sick and tired of the fighting. Somebody better get the important news. It is time we start to fight FOR instead of with each other. We look like incompetent children in front of the whole world. We have loss focus and direction anytime we can make choices that put American citizens out of work to exercise a right to withhold assistance to support each other in efforts to make us safe and strong. No matter our opinion of our president he is our president and it is our duty to help him succeed. Any party that is more interested in any agenda that puts people out of work must rethink your purpose. Power, party goals, or personal agendas should never divide us to the point of public humiliation and unnecessary hardship for American citizens. Stop it already. We have become one nation suffering from too many gods because we have become our own. Pray America we need the help of a real God to restore order in our government and nation. Fight for what we stand for not just your personal agendas. We need each other to agree to do what is right because it is right. To those who thought it worth it to partially shut down the government I for one think you need an experience with that helpless victim position to prompt you to seek alternatives more aggressively. I further believe Americans should vote for you to fund the support of these workers with your pay until the matter is settled. How about that for some righteous order.
Looks like Halloween may get rained out where I am. Alright with me since I am not one of the people that thinks fear is funny or fun. So no tricks or treats be safe. Thanksgiving came and went since I drafted this post and the shopping frenzy has begun. We really do have much to be thankful for and celebrate despite the many challenges of the day. Imagine being one of those still without lights and all their stuff gone. Life is still a gift and an opportunity to live it better now. Feelings and emotions can hold us hostage to pain and misery. Freedom from the bondage of emotional pain is a choice that begins with a change of mind. It is not stuff and things that are irreplaceable but life. Time to live it to the full and not let loss or presumed failure rain on your today and infect your future. The future is not promised is the lesson we all learn when we get unexpected lessons from close encounters with death and the reality that we are not prepared for what is next. To build a tomorrow free of frets and regrets and guaranteed success. Jesus is the answer to it all. See Why Jesus.
I am concerned about the back to back storms and the devastation they leave. There is a story in the bible about Jesus telling a storm ” peace be still.” I know everybody does not believes as I do but we are sure in enough peril to try anything. It is far better than allowing bad news to spark fears into a blazing fire that fuels fear and hopelessness. Faith works and I for one want to practice until it works with precision to resist fear and avoid devastation. Time we resist the fear frenzy that draws devastation like a magnet. Shout out if you agree.
Is your life an example of lies that steal life, peace, opportunities, health, relationships, money, or identity. Take this moment to reflect on your personal life or that of some one you know and consider what is the truth from your perspective. Example a person ruled by low self esteem or pride and arrogance. There is a truth that governs their behavior for better or worse and a challenge to that core belief can bring about a change. The bible says as a man thinks so is he. We all know we can be wrong or mistaken in an assessment what many do not realize is a simple change of mind or heart is the way to re-direct. If I approach life believing I cannot help who I am and how I am, I am saying there is no ability to change. Not true. There may be an unwillingness to change, a sense of why try when you expect to fail but the limit is not on your potential to succeed but your approach to the issue. Win the battle in the mind and then proceed. Be willing to challenge your truth to discover a new one.
Like the four seasons of a year life has cycles of change and challenges. Fair weather or storms life goes on. To enjoy smooth sailing the right focus and priorities are most valuable. If stuff, things, wants, and feelings determine your joy and peace any storm or threat can leave you off balance or wounded. Life is our most valuable commodity and time a close second. All life is of great value no matter the season, age, gender, culture or financial status. Spend life and time like your most valuable assets. Don’t waste them or treat them as worthless and do no allow anyone else to. We are all important and valuable if we know it or not, God says so. He thought we were important enough to send His Son Jesus to make away for us to spend eternity with Him. See why Jesus.
Thanks for all the encouragement. To answer some of the questions and respond to my readers. Much of what I say is from a biblical rather than any other world view. That is because after much study of the alternatives Love is what we all need. The world is having a lot of all kinds of sex but millions are dying for the need of love. God is love and His way is the way that works if we learn of it and align with it.
To the suggestion that I chose Jesus because it was the best I could do at the time. The suggestion was to consider self -acceptance rather than a destructive course of action. Jesus is not destructive but healing; a course of both enlightenment and recovery. Self- acceptance on the other hand has a tendency to imply this is as good as it gets and that’s Ok with me. The human experience does not lean in that direction. For instance I would never grow up or would just agree with being a rapist or child abuser. Self-acceptance must leave room for self-assessment and a desire to be the best you can be. Jesus is my ability to do just that. Thanks for the feed back and keep coming back.
If you have not found the books on this site I invite you to go deeper into true spiritual enlightenment. I will be starting classes and a question and answer forum to gather material for my next, “Lies that Steal Life,” installment. I will site and give credit for any material I use but there will be no monetary compensation. You can also request in writing that I do not share your material and I will honor your request. There will be a prize for the best testimony and we will publish it for all our readers and participants. All are invited to this next phase of interaction. Talk to you soon. Hopeful for your comments and feedback.
Please do not use this blog sight for your off topic sales agendas. This blog is not to promote sales but to transform lives. Thanks.
The holidays are upon us again time is moving quickly now. Ever notice how the years seem to be speeding by? Why is that? Any comments? I think time is colliding with eternity and life as we know it will soon be no more. What are you doing to prepare? Money, influence, friends networks cannot protect us from storms, terrorist, or diseases. What is the answer we need to secure our futures if none of what we have trusted in the past can do it? If you been following me for anytime you know what’s next. God is the answer to it all and Jesus is the open door to Him. See Why Jesus.
Wow there’s a lot going on in our world. Like a woman in labor the contractions get closer and the pains keep coming. It is time to prepare for what comes after this. Many do not believe in God but believe heaven exits. Tomorrow is not promised and the storms of life are raging out of control. Thousands of people die daily with less confidence in life as we know it. People tend to major in things that have no guarantees or lack value. Unfortunately opinions vary and often don’t matter. It amazes me the important decision we make based on feelings and agreement with other people. Concepts like fading into nothingness or return in other forms until we get it right may be appealing but truth? We need trust worthy insight and wisdom to make important decisions. We can start with actually caring about the important things. How about we answer some important questions. Exactly what does happen next? Is there life after death? Is there a guaranteed way to make heaven your home after death on earth? Does God have the answers that we do not have? Give me a shout out with your answers or questions we so can start a dialogue of something actually important to discuss.
