STAND BY FOR A MESSAGE!

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

    Can I just say what a comfort to discover an individual who truly knows what they’re discussing on the internet.
    You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More and more people should read this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised that you’re not more popular because you certainly possess the gift.

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because
    I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at
    options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good
    platform.
