WHAT’S NEXT, DREAMS OR DRAMA?

Comedy is often the sarcastic realization of inescapable tragedy.  Bryant H. McGill

Did you know the only way we can really live is to grow?  Growth brings about change; and old age?   🙂   So naturally as we age we learn most of the important skills we will need to go forth with a good perception of life, ready for What’s Next. 

Life is not all about wishing something into existence, but it can happen if you have Favor from God and Faith, but for the rest of us, it’s all about action coupled with faith?  Go ahead, intentionally put a plan in place instead of crying Why Me Lord the next time things aren’t going your way if only to see if you can Move Mountains.  (Drama, hardships, etc.)

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall no doubt in his heart; But shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.   Mark 11:23

I know there are some Saints out there that know what I am talking about.  Don’t You?

Most times life only offers a thin line of separation between laughter and pain that are hinged on emotions that include anger, things I cannot name, and tales told in dreams.  But, the oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is Fear, fear of the unknown.

Most know there are things known, and unknown, but somewhere in the middle is the act of perception, leaving us with some type of understanding of those things.  Friend or foe, dream come true or drama are the most problematic because we all perceive those things differently.

In other words, the optimist, who is a firm believer in That’s better than nothing, see the doughnut.  The pessimist, who habitually expects the worst only sees the hole.

Just because there are more than a few mysteries in the known world that doesn’t mean there are no answers.  And as always, in order to find those answers, we have to make decisions concerning them.  For instance, we can choose to give up, give in, or give it all we have.

Sholom Aleichem quoted: Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor?

It’s true, life is a dream to the wise, perhaps that’s because of the wise rising up to face life’s challenges, and some will enjoy the experience.  Maybe not so much for the foolish, they seem to have the gift of finding every reason to give up or do something stupid.

While we are on the subject and from experience, let me add a few more things:

I know not to let emotions make decisions for me, especially when they come from a place of arrogance coupled with egotistical nonsense, or just plain condescending.  Fool or not, rich or poor, black or white, we still need dignity, integrity, and respect, especially if we intend to live a productive life. 

Now don’t get it twisted, still, with all those assets none of us are entitled to anything, we just think we are.

And just so you know, Pain is a part of life too, and it’s something most of us are afraid of, but not if we look at it with a Positive Attitude knowing it’s a negative situation that calls for Jesus Christ, and possibly a few pills.  

God didn’t give us a spirit of fear, Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.   Corrie Ten Boom

It’s Something To Think About!

To God Be The Glory, and it is in Jesus name that we pray.

ORGANIZE, PRIORITIZE AND PRAY!

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post and sharing is encouraged.

ORGANIZE, PRIORITIZE AND PRAY!

I know victory is in the preparation, still, at times I have worried myself sick wondering if anyone is going to read my next post, only to realize what a waste of time being insecure is.  As I kept writing, I realized if God wanted me to be read I would be, and if my writings are A Test of Obedience just for Him, then So Be It.

Will you be prepared to be obedient to God’s call?

I believe we are put to the test from time to time in order to demonstrate our obedience.  I don’t know how you view things, but after an array of difficult trials coupled with a multitude of errors, I found the best way to conquer anything was to prepare for everything, starting with, You can do nothing without me.  (John 15:5  KJV

If we don’t prepare for success outside of praying it will somehow just drop into our laps, we will fail?  Whether we fall from the top of the leader board, topple off a middle step, or slip deeper down the rabbit hole, it won’t hurt any less when we hit the bottom. 

Why?  Because we were not prepared to soften the blow by utilizing Jesus Christ and Educated Options.

The Devil and the Details can be in our failures, and they will appear where we least expect them because Satan hits where we are the least prepared.  Normally we are our own worst enemy because of what we tell ourselves.  (I got this, etc.)  God speaks to this flaw in humankind when he warned us not to lean to our own understanding.   Proverbs 3:5-6

I can relate to An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so preparing our mind for the known and the unknown through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior is the first step to gaining the advantage.  So, with preparation and the Grace of God, an opportunity may turn into good fortune, but there seems to be far more opportunity than ability, or could it be we lack vision and do not recognize a real chance? 

My mother often said, I buy you books and buy you books, and all you do is look at the pictures.

We live in a Country where anyone can receive an education, although it may not be the best in some situations, the bare minimal is still better than none.  Perhaps we should take what we can get until we can do better because giving up is not an option, nor is standing outside the doors of higher learning. 

Staying in School or in any position to learn is an option, whether it be the School of Life, Hard Knocks or Fate.  Nothing is easy, so there are harder lessons to be learned in our choices; Choose wisely.  I suggest you Organize, Prioritize and Pray before making any decision. 

Being afraid to commit and all the negativity that accompany fear can be a nightmare, but not if you know those are tools used by Satan With that knowledge, we can move any mountain.  In our lifetime there is little doubt Crisis will take us to the brink of our limits and then force us to keep moving, and the Word of God gives us the strength to carry on.  After all, we were not given a spirit of fear or failure

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.  2 Timothy 1:7 

There is a lot to be gained from the past, but I believe the only time we should look to the past is when we are preparing for the future.  The School of Trial and Error offer perfect reference points for where to start and possibly end with a win as we rely on experience and Jesus Christ to counsel us in our decision-making process.

The most dedicated of us can tell you when competing to reach our goals it’s not all about winning, which is a major part of becoming successful; It’s about being prepared and having a strong self-image of oneself, the stamina, and the courage to finish.

Taking the easy way out works against us, so to get the most from our endeavors, know, The more complicated the job the greater the success.  I would suggest working on the parts where we are the weakest to gain strength, which in turn may lead to a stronger outcome.

Remember, you are not the only one seeking that elusive prize, whatever it may be, and He who is best prepared can best serve his moment of inspiration.   Samuel Taylor Coleridge

By Organizing, Prioritizing, and Praying coupled with keeping an open mind, and a listening ear, we can master new skills while updating old ones.  But we will need a few things like preparation, explanations, observations, supervision, professionalism and integrity.   Following through is the hardest part.

FYI: Hard work and rehearsal is a major part of any successful venture, plus they build character while relieving pressure.  If you try to wing it, your unpreparedness will show, and may very well lead to your downfall.  Victory is the child of preparation and determination.  Sean Hampton

Thank you, Lord, for all you do and it is in Jesus name that we pray.  Amen

A CURE FOR THE AGING?

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post and sharing is encouraged.

A CURE FOR THE AGING?

Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life.   Proverbs 16:31

Most people hate the aging process because they fail to realize birth is a gift from God, and aging is a work of art.  So we go merrily on our way until the concept of time is understood, perhaps that first fine line was the tellng point, now time is no longer a friend to be taken for granted.

The battle begins; no more I have all the time in the world attitude, and how we fare depends on how long it takes us to realize how serious time, and the aging process really is.

Some try everything in their power to slow time down, especially some seniors.  Why not, we all know time is the reason we age, don’t we?  What most don’t know, or don’t care to know, and will not accept is, It is what it is, and it’s all up to God?
He said You can do nothing without me.   John 15:5  KJV

There are people who are banking on Science to find that one cell that controls the stay 21 forever gene.  The overly fit are keeping that heart rate up until it almost burst.  Often times we do things to keep us forever young that is killing us to no avail.  The Pharmacy for these remedies/creations is a testament to that.

I know some of these products appear to do what they say.  I think it just looks like it, God’s Go It All In Control. 

The only thing that slows down death is death.

I can understand us wanting to look and smell good, and there are ways.  Some dye their hair to gain that elusive youthful appearance, although the package clearly states this product may do this or that if you had or have this or that, among other warnings.  But who thinks or care about that when vanity and pride are at the forefront, and who believe Reading is Fundamental anymore?

It would be great if the shelves in the Pharmacies were full of products that affect wisdom, maturity and new opportunities, but there is no fun in that, especially when we are spending all our time and money trying to relive a time that has passed.  

The options are, we can grow up and live life as best we can in each season, and perhaps if we stop spending so much time staring in the mirror looking for signs of becoming decrepit, frail, and sick, we can eliminate the worry lines simply by drinking water.  A gift from God that can restore, replace and improve, but…

We are quick to buy anti-aging creams while claiming we don’t like the Bread of Life: (Water)  God gifted us with this miracle drink that is keeping us alive and we are taking it for granted.  Have you ever wondered why you are having so many leg and hand cramps, or itchy dry skin?  Have a glass or two.  Now you know.

When we can look at our aging selves and embrace this is who we are now while realizing age is not a loss of youth but a growing arsenal of knowledge, we’ll be okay.  And once we understand it’s not how old we are, it’s how good we feel, we will be able to do even more.  And know, aging isn’t a thief, it’s a way of life. 

I love my wrinkles, most times, after all, some of them were smiles.  Okay, frowns too.

FYI: The young are no more immune from death than the elders, although they think so.  The graveyard is a testament to that.  So as we try everything possible to get that youthful glow back, most remain annoyed and that make us look even older.

Other problems besides the loss of time and money, is worry and there is no doubt about it builds stress, plus that memory loss product didn’t do what it said it would do.  That alone help makes us old-looking.  Oh well, that’s advertisement for you.  May I suggest mind-challenging games.

At some point, we must draw the line and start living in our truth.  The Bible tells us in 2nd Corinthians 4:16, So do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.

There is a reason for this aging thing, and it’s all about The Glory of God, splendor, strength, wisdom, and understanding, not looks.  We are all made in the Image of God.  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:  Genesis 1:26   What’s wrong with that?

As quite as it’s kept, isn’t it everyone’s goal to live a long and fruitful life?  Well, it’s mine, and I know the Only way to get old, is to live.  I also know one of the Commandments suggest you Love your father and mother so that your days be long on this earth.  You don’t need a pill for that.

Just so you know, Wisdom is with the aged, and understanding in length of days.  Job 12:12  

Even Jesus Christ started in the womb and aged until he died on the cross, what make you the exception?

ASK ABOUT EVERYTHING!

 

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post and sharing is encouraged.

ASK ABOUT EVERYTHING!

Some people think asking questions is a show of weakness, I think not asking questions is a show of ignorance.  I Ask About Everything.  Especially the I don’t want to sound stupid questions.

Asking questions sounds as if you are aware of other things besides yourself (conscience) and looking for answers.  Who would have thought you had it in you?  Your willingness to learn just goes to show how much others don’t know about you.

Never be afraid to ask whomever, a mentor, parent, friend, teacher, especially God.  There is a penalty for not asking, and that is you’ll never learn if you fear its answer.

I know am only a speck it this Wide World but it’s my speck and I want it, and I want to have the ability to understand it.  How do we get there?  Asking the right questions is a good start coupled with at the right time and to the right source. 

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraided not; and it shall be given to him.  James 1:5  KJV

You can do it, you can Ask God for and about anything, something I can testify to.  I am a 3rd Stage Breast Cancer Survivor of nine years.  The key was I went to God even before I knew the Doctors weren’t optimistic I told God, he said all I needed was the Faith of a mustard seed.  Now with Cancer, it was the time to put His Word and My Faith to the test.

I know only needing the faith of a mustard seed sounds too small and too easy, and a lot of people don’t make it because of that, and it causes others to lose Faith when they feel God has failed them.  Everybody has to go at some point.

When it’s not our time to leave this Earth and we have a real relationship with Jesus Christ, we can defeat the hardships of this World, and when we can take Christ at his word while laying all our concerns on The Altar of Prayer without any doubt, we can achieve all he has promised.  He did it for me so I know he’ll do it for others.

Ask, and it will be given unto you; seek and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.  Matthew 7:7-8 KJV

Most know we don’t do that, we listen to ourselves and waddle in our misery because we never ask, or if we do bend our knees often we pray the Why Me, Lord prayer.  Our ears and mind shut down when we are in trouble or just plain ole stupid.

There is a Spiritual order and I learned before we ask God for our desires, especially for our life, we should take care to think about what He has asked of us.  Laws were laid down long before our time; the first Ten, are Commandments.  Guidelines that need to be practiced to get to the finish line whether it is sooner than we think or not.

Most know talk doesn’t make things happen, prayer does and it’s a process that starts with the Commandments, and that requires action, so we should ask ourselves a number of questions before we consider what to ask God for, or what to say to others.

Try this: First, think about what you are asking for then ask God what to do and how to do it.  For instance, before lying ask why lie; ask is it worth it; how many will it hurt and can I live with the repercussions?  Ask what may happen if we choose not to lie, what will happen if we say nothing?

Saying nothing…sometimes says the most.   Emily Dickerson

I don’t mind asking God about anything, especially what is said by prophets and teachers.  I check in with Jesus Christ and then check their credentials for falsehoods.  You Do You, as for me, I’ll be asking questions and seeking answers at every turn, and Googling them is a part of it.

Can any hide in secret places that I cannot see him? saith the Lord. Do I not fill Heaven and Earth? saith the Lord. Jeremiah 23:24

Just so you know, while the false are looking in, am looking out and asking plenty of questions for protection.

There are a number of reasons that could hamper us from finding answers, one is not asking the question, another is we didn’t use common sense, etc… More importantly, we need to know when asking questions is not enough.  At some point, we may need to quit asking questions and take action.

Often we ask, more like beg for what we feel we deserve, for instance, happiness but with conditions.  That’s not how it works, happiness is something we feel; a choice we choose to embrace, and it can be found in achievements and creative efforts, not asking for God to give it to you, although you can.

I Ask About Everything for knowledge and understanding, at least it helps me to understand why I don’t get all I want.   ; )

Most days I ask myself if am doing what I believe in, and am I doing them for the right reasons, and I wonder if we don’t ask for help, will anyone get the opportunity to be helpful?  Aren’t we supposed to be in support of one another?

Asking questions is the source of knowledge, so in my defense, I believe my greatest strength is I am ignorant enough to ask a few.  Do we have that in common?

FYI: When asking questions concerning our sinful ways, The only thing to do with sin is to confess, ask for penance and then, after some kind of decent interval, ask for forgiveness.   Joseph J. Ellis

LOVE, HATE AND FAKES?

Contacts can be found on the bottom of each page and sharing is encouraged.

LOVE, HATE, AND FAKES?

The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and to also love our enemies; probably because our enemies are the same people.  G. K. Chesterton

Friends are people who are on good terms with each other, such as a patron, or supporters that are attached to one another by feelings or personal regard, next door neighbors.  In other words, they genuinely like each other.  But some say our friends could be our worst enemies, and in some cases, that’s true, but I also found them to be the reason I learned my most valuable lessons; The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

We can be on guard against our enemies, but it will take God to delivered us from a friend.  Charlotte Bronte

Just to stay on the safe side I believe we should be aware of any friend that turned into an enemy, they could have been hating on you from the beginning, and only God knows why.  Oh! By the way, the best way to keep your secrets from your enemies is to stop telling your business.

Enemies are people who feel hatred for, fosters harmful designs against, or engages in antagonistic activities against another; an adversary or opponent.  Perhaps The Devil himself.

A man who hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that stick closer than a brother.  Proverbs 18:24

FYI: If we want to know what the enemy look like, first check to see if he resembles you.  It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him into evil ways.  Buddha

I found it’s easy to find where a person stands as a friend, just have a bad day. 

Misfortune tests a friend and detects enemies, and I found most friends have the same enemy.  Well, good for them, but I’ll do my own assessments.  Sorry, I choose for myself and I can’t hate another because my friend does, but I will be cautious; I know friends come and go, and enemies accumulate.

Do not repay evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.  1st Peter 3:9

A Frenemy (fake) is a person or group that is friendly toward another because the relationship brings benefits, but harbors feelings or resentment including rivalry.  A fake is a person that makes themselves as attractive as possible, in any aspect, to trick or deceive.

Since the word frenemy is new, I also understand it to mean, a person disguised as a friend who is not interested in keeping your best interest at heart, but you wouldn’t know they despise you or know that they are saying and doing you wrong, behind your back. 

Our false friends are like our shadow, keeping close to us while we walk in the sunshine, but leaving us the instance we cross into the shade.  Christen Nestell Bovee

Okay, I have to admit, Frenemies give us one advantage: It gives good reasons to appreciate good friends.   🙂

I would suggest in order to protect ourselves from these predators, we invest in the people we know will feed us just as much goodness as we do them because The man of God is competent, equipped for every good work.  2nd Timothy 3:17  Are you?

CHANGE DIRECTIONS?

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post and sharing is encouraged.

CHANGE DIRECTIONS?

Satan is very crafty, he will guide us to the wrong path without our knowledge, causing life to go in a direction, not of our choosing.  That’s why we need to adjust from time to time.

Having a goal will allow us to control the direction we want our life to go in order to pursue our dreams.  Look at it this way if you find it suitable.  We have choices.

The Pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.  William Arthur Ward

Some things stick with us all our lives and there are times when some of those things are not clear.  We wonder if it happened, did we read it somewhere, if so is it true, all the while wondering if we have been lying about something so long we don’t remember what really happened?

Often we get so wrapped up in our own misconceptions we miss the truth.  A sure sign we need to Change Directions.

Any type of change will require effort, courage, purpose and direction; it was not meant to be easy nor was it meant to be all bad.  Don’t despair when things don’t go your way, maybe you were meant to be deterred.   Lori Noebe

When I was a little girl I had a recurring dream; a snake was chasing me with a Big Red Kisser. (lips)  This snake chased me all through the house night after night between the ages of five and eight.  In my dream, I ran up and down the stairs barely escaping this snake so large it had a difficult time navigating space in our tiny home.

Although I ran passed windows that showed the light of day and children playing in the street, I did not think to escape by going outside. 

I will never forget the relief I felt when I finally ran out of the house, with the sun shining on my face I was without fear.  Nowadays I wonder what took me so long to do something different.

What matters is I did and I learned a lesson that influences my decision-making to this day.

It was a Go into the light Carolan moment when I took a different route to except the Serpent.  I even remember the end of the dream; which is rare.  I was standing outside with the rest of the kids, and while looking at the house, I was hoping the snake was trapped.  I worried if I went back in would he still be there?  I never dreamed that dream again… until years later when I was a grown woman.

I believe the dream was a lesson and an awareness that if I wanted something to change, I have to be the one willing to do something different to make that Change Happen.  It took a long time for me to realize I had to stop running in circles in the middle of a task.  Now if it doesn’t work on the second try, I Change Directions.

The moral of the story is when we step outside the box and abandon what we usually do, situations can make dramatic changes in our favor.  Maybe we were on the wrong path trying to go the right way?  We need to understand we can’t run away from our problems, but we can change the situation for the better if we make some adjustments.

As a young adult, there came a time when I was having problems I couldn’t resolve.

On one of those sleepless nights I dreamed about that serpent with the Big Red Kisser; it had been years.  I believe that dream I dreamed as a child was meant to help me as an adult if only to remind me, I had to change directions again, but this time by coming up with a new plan that included Jesus Christ.

We need God in our lives. 

The Spirit embedded in me as a child, gave me the knowledge and strength as an adult to stop hiding from whatever is chasing me, which included the knowledge that there is more than one way to skin a cat, Change Directions.  Sometimes we get addicted to the same ole same ole; look around, you may be going South when you should be headed North.

I believe we have been warned and each of us in their own way no matter how silly it is to our peers.  Am sure most have had their moments, I just don’t know if anyone is paying attention.  We all should know circles start and end in the same place, and just because the road is crooked doesn’t mean it won’t get us where we’re going.

Have Faith in God, sometimes we have to slow down even speed it up, change our ways or step back when necessary in order for Jesus Christ to clear the path, or build us a brand new road to take.

IT WASN’T MEANT TO BE?

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post, and sharing is encouraged.

IT WASN’T MEANT TO BE?

From personal experiences, I have come to realize when a door closes, 99.9% of the time It wasn’t meant to stay open.

Every vision will not see the light and every goal will not be fulfilled, often they serve only as rungs up the ladder to success.  For instance, take the caterpillar; What the caterpillar calls the end the world The Master call a butterfly.  Richard Bach.

Somethings happen for a reason and we never know what’s in store until God bring what is Meant To Be to the present.  I knew thee before I formed thee in the womb.  Jeremiah 1:5 KJV 

Everything has its time and place.  For those who read me on a regular basis know, I am a firm believer in what is for you is for you, and it will align itself perfectly with the Will of God for those who Believe. 

With God in control, there is no reason to be afraid to lose what wasn’t meant to be.  First of all, if it wasn’t meant to be, it was never yours to lose.

Most want to be loved and appreciated, and I know how hard it can be when a loved one walk away while your pride, suffer.  Maybe the object of your desire knew what was between the two of you wasn’t going to last.  Proving once again we are not always on the receiving end of what we want no matter how much we love or finagle (cheat, trick, and lie) our way to keep it.

Satan is constantly testing us, so we have to make common sense decisions that acknowledge What Is, opposed to what we want something to be.  This could be the crossroads for some, so stay diligent, the Devil uses our desires to destroy the truth as we know it.

Deep down in our heart where the Spirit Lives, we may know the truth but don’t want to admit not everyone’s intentions line up with our own.  Once we realize life is not only a personal journey that searches for love and happiness, it’s also A Crusade for Jesus Christ, then we can get our priories in order.

You can do nothing without me.  John 15:5

There have been plenty of times I have or had too squashed my desires and stepped out, although I was hurt, I still had confident in who I am.  Let’s make this clear, I don’t want anything or anybody that doesn’t want me.  And I try to never make decisions that take me outside of my beliefs for the sake of aligning myself with others because of fear, lust or the sake of just fitting in.

I Trust God, so in my opinion, if It’s Not Meant To Be, It Won’t Happen.  With Jesus Christ, I’ll do all I can to stand fearlessly through Faith.  For God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power; and of love; and of a sound mind.  2 Timothy 1:7 KJV

It’s up to each of us to accept the Bible at its word, just be aware of the fact that there is no such thing as believing only the parts that suit us best.  That’s our choice, but it all boils down to It’s the Whole Bible or Nothing.

Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.”  John 20:20

I know it’s hard to break from what we know and think is best for us, but if we put anyone or anything before God, including our family, we can become Godless.  There shall be No Other Gods Before Me; The First Commandment, and there are heavy consequences when we don’t put God first, like finding ourselves under the Influence of Satan and whatever comes with it.

The lovelorn call their feelings a Crush, perhaps that’s the problem.  If what you are feeling was meant to be, fate would have made it happen, not us pushing for it.  If we obey God, and it is his will, he will give us the desires of our heart.  A crush is a force that destroys or deform, it squeezes the life out of…

It’s just my opinion but if a loved one can just walk away from you, perhaps they never intended to stay, and it is also of my opinion, if a loved one cheated, among other things, (abuse,etc.) they may have confirmed the relationship Wasn’t meant to be. 

When we let go, we become who God made us be, we don’t need a crutch to be all that and more.  We need to get back on track so when that awakening occurs we can accept rejection for what it is Rejection.   Some try too hard to make ourselves out to be perfect, even to the point we may conjure up fiction.

If your desires go that far to the left, It Wasn’t Meant To Be.  That phase is one of the Greatest truths every told and it is one of the Greatest excuses ever used.  You can believe, it is what it is if it is from God, but if it is from the Devil, you can believe it’s not what you think.
