Tribulation: suffering with grievous trouble, great misery, and distress.
In life we sometimes ask ourselves, (well I do) why is this happening, is that really true, wow, did you see that, do I really know who I am, what I am doing with my life, and how can I do better?
Well, now those are some tough but common questions; and you and God can answer them. As a matter of fact, you’re the only two who know the truth about you. Maybe not you so much, but this still calls for us to have the ability to tell ourselves the Truth.
I am a Living Witness; (Evidence) for not only being a Cancer killer through Faith, but an array of other things, long forgotten. At some point I felt as if “no weapons formed against me would prosper.” When we are young we feel as if we are a force of nature to be dealt with. But like most, I experienced my share of ups and downs, and thru it all I learned what “Something’s Feel like.” ( A Testimony)
I know what it “feel like” to be paralyzed, to lay there and someone is next to me. Trapped in a living nightmare, and my friends cannot pick up on the panic in my eyes; and all the time, I was screaming in my head touch me, touch me.
Stretched out on a metal rocker, on the front porch, looking as if I was only relaxing; enjoying the sun on my face. As far as I knew before the scare, there was nothing wrong with me; but I still couldn’t move. This happened twice. This is the 1st time I told. It’s more than 45 years later, and I still know what it “feel like,” to be paralyzed and not tell. (Hiding things from ourselves.)
Now, I know how it feel to be a tad stupid. (Making poor decisions) Although it worked out, I should have spoken up and gotten tested.
I know how it feel to almost have my head smashed under the wheel of a car. It was close enough to take some hair out. The gear shift was busted, so I had to shift manually from under the right front wheel, one day it rolled back. “I Know How It Feel” to almost get killed by my own hand.
“I Know How It Feel” to have Cancer, receive a Mastectomy, the sting of Chemo; and the courage it take. All the things in the World which concerned me was moving full steam ahead. The bills still had to be paid, and I had to pay them. “Business is business, and life goes on.” Tribulations or not, “I Know How It Feel.”
I have worked in construction a great deal of my life and I know how it feel to fall off a scaffold into the thin air. I just walked off the end. I know how it feel to have bullets flying pass my head, breaking school records, owning businesses, getting accolades, and some I did not deserve. Things I don’t want to talk about now, or ever. I know how they feel too.
I know a lot about how things feel. So don’t let the things I write about go in vain. I had to experience “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,” to had these life experiences in order to tell you about them. I had to Survive. I pray you “Don’t Go There,” unless called.
It is my life, so I had to experienced the Cancer and all those terrible and sometimes good things that happened to and for me, to fulfill my life according to God’s Plan. I was to receive a Testimony, and at some point had to realize that. I knew God; but I was rebelling, and it ended up being the root cause of my problems.
Cancer was the wake up call; I blossomed late, but not too late in the Eyes of God. He still found use for me and my life. I was saved to declare; “Jesus Is Lord.”
And I am telling you how, “He saved my Life,” so with your permission, He can save yours. He gave us an informational manual called The Bible; Pastors, real life Testimonies, and sometimes a good read. All things pleasing unto God, and written under His authority. I tell you thru experience, you can achieve all things if you accept Christ into your heart.
All we have to do is submit ourselves unto the Lord, with a clean Heart. God want us to be humble, and give unto Him freely, our Love and Praise.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. Psalm 100:4
God doesn’t need money, slaves, somewhere to live. Everything is His, so there is no need for Him to require anything else. The acceptance of Jesus Christ, and living under his authority is all that is required from us. But it’s not going to be easy. Things are not always handed to us on a “Silver Platter,” after all, “Rules are rules.”
I know what the adversary, the Devil, feel like; I got the scars. I also know how it feels to defeat him thru Jesus Christ. I got the Salvation. (Redeemed)
” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
My life was spared because of FAITH, and a God Given Purpose for me. Jeremiah 1:5 say; “I knew thee before I formed you in the belly.”
I understand clearly, if we are not under the protection of Christ, and do not seek our purpose, or bother to care what that purpose is, it wouldn’t matter what; “We know or not know, or if things just happen?” Because it is what it is. “Get right or get left.”
What you need to know is how it feel to be “Covered, by the Blood,” and how it feel to be Saved?
For when we were without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6
My Lord armed me with life experiences, and I had to endure the process. “Failure was not an option.”
To say, I Know How It Felt is past tense. “I Know How It Feel” right now! As if it happened a second ago. I am loaded with information for all who will listen to help lift the load thru Jesus Christ. I suggest we let Jesus into our Hearts before it is “too late.” (Death)
Jesus declared in John 16:33; These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
