12 Oct

An unhealthy mouth and an unclean body are by no means an advantage.  Some of us see unkempt people with poor speaking skills, and how they smell as threatening.  Unfairly judging and condemning some of these souls who were deemed dangerous, and are not.

Don’t try to read more into this than what I am saying.  I was very judgmental until I realized the one’s I didn’t like, at first sight, some how ended up being some of my closest friends; just to show you how much I know about prejudging.

This is a Testimony about how to put things into perspective; the things that are out of our control, and a willingness to accept that fact.

Everyone has to live according to their own understanding if God is not dominant in their lives.  Without the influences of Jesus Christ, we are at the mercy of the “World Wide Web,”  but more frightening is listening to ourselves.   Now, while the internet is full of helpful information, coupled with our personal opinions, I am still wondering where is our joy, peace, and salvation?

I can’t find those things including Everlasting Life, on a dot-com?  The ways and understandings of the carnal world are not to be trusted.  So, I recommend that we Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  Proverbs 3:5

Also know that, To be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.   Romans 8:5-6

Steve Maraboli’s opinion closely resembles my own.  He said, “The reason many people in our society are miserable, sick, and highly stressed is because of an unhealthy attachment to things they have no control over.”  (other people’s lives)

One of the biggest issues for me, including the majority of us, is our flesh.  And it could care less about allowing bad influences, (foods, drinks, ill-gotten gains, etc..) and all the other things that are designed to kill us, trumping our abilities to just “say no.”

The flesh wants what it wants, and don’t care how it go about getting what it wants, the majority of the time.

Now that we have that understanding, I am leery of appearances; but they are the ones that belong to the corporate and wall street types. This time it’s not the ones with their pants hanging low, or the girls up for financial display.  Although, this is a huge concern.

I am scared of “red bottom” shoes, $500 custom designed shirts, coupled with a huge attitude, and their disdain for the less fortunate, from a few of the wearers.  If the shoe don’t fit don’t wear it, I am talking about the ones that are “larger than life.”

Fancy cars and big cigars, scoundrels selling us a future that empty our bank accounts, leaving us, and the elderly devastated.  Plus, I don’t have a clue about the mind of a man, woman or child, like many do.  I am busy trying to figure me out, but I am willing to help, and receive help, if possible.

What I am not afraid of is the fact that we need our bodies, not what we put on it, which is important too, but what we put in it, and how we feel about ourselves.   We need our bodies, there is no existence without it.

Tell that to the invisible man.  But more importantly, it is the Temple in which our Lord God lives.  So, take care of your bodies and guard your mind; we never know who is watching for; “We Are Not Our Own.”

I understand the fact that we are dwellers in a body that God created, and with Jesus Christ taking up residency in the hearts of all who will allow Him in, there are a few things we need to know to stay healthy physically as well as emotionally, and be blessed in the Eyes of The Lord; try looking at the people of the world according to their places in The Beatitudes: Matthew 5:3-11

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. 

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. 

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. 

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. 

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. 

Blessed are they which are persecuted for rightness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 

Verse 12: Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and you are not your own?   1st Corinthians 6:19  K J V

It would be wise to get a grip on that lifestyle; everything that matters count, especially that Spirit (Jesus Christ) that lives in us.

It’s “Something to think about.”

Thank you Lord for this all wisdom.  In Jesus name we pray.  Amen,,

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get
    that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a excellent job with this.

    Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your blog.

    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?
    A couple of my blog audience have complained about my blog
    not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?

    Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to grasp so much approximately this, such
    as you wrote the guide in it or something. I think that you just
    could do with a few % to force the message house a bit, however other than that, this is excellent blog.

    A great read. I will certainly be back.

    May I just say what a comfort to uncover someone who really knows
    what they are discussing online. You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people should look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I can’t believe you’re not more popular given that you certainly possess the gift.

    First off I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do
    not mind. I was interested to find out how
    you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining,
    and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something relating to this.

    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for
    about a year and am concerned about switching to another
    platform. I have heard excellent things about
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    At this time it appears like Drupal is the top blogging platform available right
    now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using
    on your blog?

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s
    pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hello, Neat post. There is an issue along with your website
    in web explorer, might check this? IE still is the marketplace
    chief and a good element of people will omit your great writing due to this problem.

    onto a colleague who was doing a little research on this.
