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.
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.
A prayer for victory over all opposition, peace in every situation, and a healthy outlook no matter what you’re facing. If the first response was I wish. Stop wishing for dreams to come true and pray for a promise you know will come true. How is that possible you ask. The bible is full of promises from God that we can believe to receive. Better than a fairy tale or hard work is the decision to seek God to find Him and every good thing you need. Too good to be true right. Start to believe with this dare. Dare to believe someone you do not see loves you more than you do. Someone you do not know knows all about you and loves you anyway. All you have to do to meet Him and begin to learn of this great love is to ask. See Why Jesus. The evidence of His love is He gave His Son so you could reach Him. Jesus is the all access pass to the goodness of God. Too bad so many do not know it and so many die every day without finding out. You do not have to. We live in a time when it is hard to trust anyone or anything even ourselves. That is why it is so important to get to know God who knows everything. The bible tells us, “if we ask it will be given, if we seek we will find and if we knock He will open the door.” So use this opportunity to ask God to reveal Himself.
Good to be back this is another invitation to enjoy the books that prompted me to start this blog. It was to provide a forum for question with answers from a biblical perspective. Not to condemn but to provide information that is not common knowledge. I finally finished my most recent book and have started a cartoon series that I think we will enjoy. Until then I need material for the second installment to, “Lies That Steal Life.” It has some new insights and a lot of testimonials. There will be prizes for the top 10 will share what they are later. Hope this new year is your best ever, that your needs are met and you take every opportunity to live to your full potential. Remember with God nothing is impossible. It is why I choose life in Him. All limits are removed and the potential is limitless. If you have not yet accepted an invitation into the family of God see Why Jesus and find love without limits and power to live in your purpose to your full potential.
Hello out there. It has been special to say the least wow our world is so in need of divine assistance. As we have lost our moral compass we have lost access to a safe and secure way. We are now reaping the whirlwind of do your own thing. The bible tells about a time in history when every man did what was right in his own sight. We are in that condition today and we think the plans and agendas of other people will help us collectively. No one has a magic potion or a good enough plan to fix the mess we are in. The very idea that law suits, protest in the street, murder, mayhem, and organized chaos is a remedy for anything is a delusion. We are so, “like me follow me,” drunk we all want to lead if we are going somewhere good or not. The ability to inspire to follow does not mean a good leader. Where are you going and why do you believe it is a good idea for everyone. An internet sensation does not make a wise choice for inspiration or direction. We are all amazing wonders of God but only when we are lead by Him are we capable of good leadership to get to the right place in the right way. Confidence in any person is usually an invitation to disappointment. For one reason, we are all imperfect. Education, confidence, not even money making ability is a guarantee to success or satisfaction. Only God satisfies, knows the end at the beginning, and can get us to the place we want to be now and for eternity. Get right so you are not left behind when what happens next comes. We are all in for some trying days ahead but with God all things are possible. We are certainly in miracle territory so connect to the Miracle Worker to get the results you need. Jesus is the open door to every good and perfect gift from God and now is the time to connect. Tomorrow is not promised and there is no other way. See Why Jesus
Sorry guys going through a lot of transition and my main computer is out of commission but life goes on. I am so sorry I missed sharing during the Resurrection Season. There is so much the masses do not realize about this great celebration of new life. Many people just do the easter eggs, bunny rabbit, candy and family gathering version. Not a thing wrong with it. I like giving the details about the amazing gifts God gives to us because too many do not know and do not benefit from them.
A lot of people have heard of Jesus and many saw the Passion of Christ and had varying opinions. I hear all the time from people who do not understand. What kind of weak god would die for people who do not even respect Him. They would rather a warrior vengeful deity that would make things obey. This is true of many gods that men choose to align themselves with. Entities that demand rituals, allegiance, obedience to ordinances and organizations that govern with fear and control. Many who do not personally know God think it is true of the christian God too. It is at the core all about love and forgiveness which includes so much more than laws, rules, and edicts.
It is a way of life that that allows God to provide, protect, and preserve those who align with Him. That is the reason I dedicate my life to unveiling truth. It is not good to make decisions about things we do not know without some unbiased insight, Who would suffer such a cruel and public ordeal that ended in death if it were not necessary or critically important? What would be the motivation? Just as important who would reject such and obvious act of love? The bible says, “no greater love than a man would lay down his life for another.” What kind of love would do it for those who obviously do not love Him back? What dos He know that we do not know? Most do not know Him at all but make determinations that make light of His great sacrifice of love. I issue another invitation to get to know Him for yourself it would be the best decision you ever made. See Why Jesus.
Hope you had a pleasant Valentines day. It is a good thing to celebrate, validate and acknowledge Love. I do believe our world is suffering from the lack of understanding of what true love is. This morning I was thinking how glad I was I am connected to the true source of love so I can experience the depth of true love. Love is far more than a feeling and we all are made more alive by an encounter with it. Our definitions of love do not agree with God’s. I invite you to an encounter with the only love worth finding. It is kind, patient, not proud, selfish, or puffed up. Love does not remember offense, it does not envy and it is not rude. Love is long suffering it protects and preserves and is the only guarantee to heaven.
Many ask why do Christians insist there is only one way to God. The answer is simple that is what God said about it. God sent Jesus to give His life to make the way for us to get to Him. It was an act of love from God who is love and knew the one thing that would get the job done. That means the way He made is the only way He accepts because it was the only thing that works. No other deity, religious group or guru can say I laid down my life to give you access to eternal life with me. None of them can forgive and remove your sins and offenses and cast them into a sea of forgetfulness. No one knows all about you and loves you anyway and promises to guide, provide and protect you. The world at large is dying from the lack of love. Love would not use and discard someone for personal gratification, weaknesses, or mistakes. Love does not deny love, acceptance, or value to anyone because of how they look, dress, or smell. Love is not selfish, self absorbed, or self focused. Love is determined and committed to do good by the object of that love. Love would prevent someone from making a slave out of another human being for self gratification or money. Much of what we consider love is not about the object of our love but ourselves. This is not to imply their is no genuine emotional attachment to those we care about it is saying it is much more. Love allows us to grow with, not abandon for a new model, stand with the imperfect not quit on them. This kind of love is possible only for those who totally sell out to God and surrender to His ways . It is impossible for us to love like Him when we are not connected to Him. If you are interested in making that connection today see Why Jesus and accept His invitation into the family of God.
