THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX!

06 Jan

The last time I checked, I was still alive, but for a life to be wholesome, there has to be a “will to live;” coupled with a desire to “Think outside of the box.” So for me, I picked up the Bible and started to read.

Our youth go to an early grave because of a lack of will, skills, and knowledge, needed to carry them thru their present situations. “What happened?”

Most times when something goes wrong, it started as a small thing and grew. It could be something like a small word with a huge meaning. The word desire alone is so powerful it can add value; to greatly enhance some lives. There is a lot to be said about what some things mean, and what should be taught.

A desire is to; long for something to crave it. Not like a mad dog.” Everything has a limit, except Christ.

When we have a relationship with ChristChrist, we have an overwhelming desire for life everlasting. This type of relationship gives us something to look forward to; the “Promises of God.”  When we don’t know Him, we have no knowledge of a better life; let alone how to achieve it.

Those living in the shadows of the Devil are often kept in the dark and are trapped. Aware of the only difference between “stuck in a rut” and the grave are the dimensions. “Go to Church,” anywhere you can receive the Word of Christ in your life.  Read, Study, and Believe the Bible.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you. He that hears my word, and believe on him that sent me, have everlasting life. And shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from death unto life.”  John 5:24

What happened to rules, regulations, respect, manners, value, sympathy, concern? “Love thy neighbor as thyself.”  I know those traits are out there somewhere. The thing is; a godly type of personality has become as rare as finding a “lost sock;”  “It is what it is, and the truth hurts.” 

I disagree with that last statement, “the truth hurts.”  Not all the time. Plus, truth is a great healer.

What is wrong with some of us? We act as if nothing matters anymore. Some of us have become complacent? (Self-satisfied and unaware of the possible dangers.)  Then there are the ones who have become so deceitful; some say we are “marching straight to Hell in a hand basket.”

That’s the problem; we are headed in the wrong direction.  “My way or the highway.”  What is that suppose to mean? The World is not yours, but you can have it as far as I am concerned.

“And be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2

We are running around with our eyes wide open; being deceived, and our minds are shut down. Why are we angry all the time? Everyone except us seems to be doing well. Some just don’t get it. People only let you see what they want you to see. Maybe they don’t want you to know their business; unpaid bills, windfall, etc. Who does?

If you are under the impression that others know something you don’t, there is the possibility that you are right. That is why I am here, To tell you, some people “Know the Lord” and are receiving “Peace of Mind.”  

Although I can only speak for myself; I believe Christians and some others don’t shut their life down wondering about yours. We only concern ourselves with what really matters and most of the time it is not you; if anything it’s something for you. The choice is ours. We can continue to live our life watching others or we can open our minds and find creative ways to live our own.

“But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.”  Galatians 6:4

If we would just step back and take a good look at ourselves. A really good clean, honest look at “who we are.”  This may take time, and a certain degree of courage; because we have a hard time admitting things to ourselves. We even go so far as to say; “As if it is going to matter, anyway.”  OH! IT GOING TO MATTER.

We can be an outside show-off or an inside coward, “who knows?”  The meat of the matter is who we claim we are, and most of our biggest conflicts come from within:

We have the ability far beyond anyone else to make ourselves unhappy. Miserable; and “misery loves company.”  Yea, right, some may want to deliver misery, not hang around it. But we alone can inflict the greatest pain imaginable on ourselves. The sad part is we know that, and continue to do so. I know we can change this and give us the greatest joy. By understanding our Spirit, and what’s in our hearts.

“Fighting others is a hard battle, fighting ourselves is suicide.”  N. L. Cherry

We do not have to experience, extremities, if we know where they are coming from. Like I said, most likely they are self-inflicted. “Don’t dim your own shine?”  Seek the Peace of God and the love of yourself, including others.

“And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any praise, think on these things; those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.”   Philippians 4; 7-9

As for me, “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 3: 14

“Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speaking,  1st Peter 2:1

I pray you will consider the given Testimony and answer this: “What are you going to do about it?”

Come on now, start “Thinking Outside the Box.”  Following after others, hurting ourselves is really not what we want. Step away from what you know to be wrong. You know what I am talking about. That wrong thing you do over and over. Trial and error are over. Our way doesn’t work. Step “outside the box” and into your own, with  Christ.

You are a “unique individual,” someone to be reckoned with. Christ knows that too.

Take advantage of Jesus. That’s all I have to say about that.

    a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
