In my mind, I think if I tell half of the things that have happened to me; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, I would be diagnosed as delusional. Beyond belief, fact and or fiction are not that distant anymore. Technology has begun proving to the non-believers and showing the Faithful what we already know; it’s what we don’t see and what some don’t know that’s running things; A Creator, I call God. (Jesus Christ)
For others, it doesn’t matter what is believed or not because of blinders. (The Devil) These distractions are keeping us from what our purpose is in life. Being hardheaded and self-centered is detrimental and will not allow growth to persevere.
We have a choice, an opinion, and an option. We can choose a course that is best suited to our personal needs to achieve our hearts desires, or we can choose to follow the leaders of the Carnal World, (Politician’s, teacher’s etc.) We also can straddle the fence between right and wrong.
I have the same privileges as the rest, so I made a decision. I chose to believe and understand Jesus Christ died on Calvary to save me from Hell and all that comes with it, and I believe by making that decision I am covered by the blood. I believe we receive Miracles, and they are not illusions or delusional; I call them blessings.
I know as a believer, I have something to look forward too. A positive attitude, Faith, and a better life thru Jesus Christ our Lord and Savor. I am not knocking anyone or their beliefs; we all see the world according to what we have been given and that did not revolve from a roll of the dice, it is written in Jeremiah 1:5
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou came forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
So I am spreading the word that Christ knows the outcome of our endeavors even when we don’t. I believe if we work with a Spirit-filled conscience, we can be and have a wonderful life, filled with all that comes with just being alive; death, wealth, joy and disappointments are all a part of the bigger picture.
I want and I believe most want to be rich in the pocket, mind, spirit, and soul, needing or asking no one for anything. A meager pay has some living like kings, healthy, happy and wise, because of their Love for Christ.
In life, it’s not the quantity, it’s the quality that’s important. Seeing the same thing over, and over, and not tossing useless things aside from time to time, will clutter our lives, and have the ability to stop our momentum. We are wasting time hanging on to obsolete items, mentally like hate and revenge, the very things that can consume us all.
When we attend school as small children, one of the 1st things we are taught is one plus one equal two; until we are sure-sure, (believe it to be correct) we will not advance to two plus two equal four. The same applies to faith, reasoning, reassurance and plain ole common sense. How long will it take for us to understand if the results are never positive, leave the negative approach behind in order to move forward?
I had to learn there are more ways than just mine that can and will lead to the correct response; and I thought I had all the bases covered, until I learned there are more ways than one to come to a good decision, and others have different opinions that also can be right concerning the same situation. While taking all this into consideration, I learned and finally came to the conclusion that most things have several correct answers, except for our Lord and Savior and math. “It is what it is.”
In truth, there is danger, and I believe we can survive any distraction if we face it with faith, expecting a miracle.
I don’t believe only the strong survive, I know a few of the weak that have squeaked through the wormhole.
I believe in life after death because It is Written, and my mother told me so.
When in trouble we sometimes dig a deeper hole for ourselves, we need to know how and when to stop.
I don’t let this or that from someone else’s beliefs determine my outcome, I have a mind and a godly source of my own.
I don’t let anger cause me to become unhinged, the danger in that emotion can get me killed.
Proclaiming what I will or will not do causes me to take it all back; anyway that was yesterday.
I do realize life is challenging, and it requires incredible strengths and knowledge. I Pray for mine.
I use to be stuck in my ways, now I can adapt, give in, admit I am wrong in different situations, in order to pursue a different outcome. To make it work I had to adopt different approaches such as; a new plan, the ability to accept another’s plan, and follow it.
When I add Jesus to the mix, I get desired results.
When I hear of a leak concerning someone else, I pray the next one don’t come from my mouth.
Being shot to the moon is not high enough; Heaven is the goal, and my Sunday Best should include the rest of the week.
I know the best holiday is every day when we celebrate the Life of Christ.
It’s not Rocket Science, it’s the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And like the rest of the world, he knows everything too.
Thank you Jesus for this day, and all to come, with you as our ever Faithful Savior; To God be the Glory. Amen
