GIVE ME MY FLOWERS?

The clock has been ticking down on my life for quite some time now, and I am still wondering why is it so hard to praise those that have at least a few perfect gifts; like being kind, supportive, helpful, caring, concerned, a team player, etc…

We all have crossed paths with people from all walks of life and some of them traveled with us, but it seems as if in my world, the only stories we share are the ones full of gloom and doom.  Some folks love having a pity party.

From experience alone, I know there are plenty of grace stories that we can pull up from the road of life that deserves to be appreciated, which has me wondering why don’t we Praise God more often?  Some say they do all day long, the problem for me is when they do is it after getting through a hard time or something worst.

Where is the praise when it was just a good day?  

While Praising and Thanking God; which is mostly about asking for something; if this is not you step back.  I just want to know why don’t we elaborate on the good times with as much vigor and details as we do when things are going badly? 

Oh, I understand; I wouldn’t tell too many people my business either.  It’s a known fact that jealousy and coveting, including things I choose not to name, are running rampant these days, coupled with the means to carry evil to a whole new level.

Let’s blame it on The New Norm; The World full of scared and secretive people, causing most good news to be far and in-between.

It is what it is and everyone won’t get a ticker tape parade because of it, even when they have accomplished something special, it’s the regular guys I am talking about, you know them; me our friends and family, someone down the street or who we met in passing.  Why don’t we praise these living beings more often for the small things that are huge, like their character?

In order to lift ourselves and others up, we must interact with each other fairly, and as we all know a little pat on the back never hurt.  We have to do what we can when we can every chance we get because the Bible says: Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.  James 4:14  KJV

Since I am still here, some things have me baffled, for instance, why do we get together and feast in the presence of the dead, knowing they can’t participate or hear us?  This is not a fight, I just think we have it backward.  You have your opinions and am just speaking up about mine.  But…

Because of these types of questions, I now understand and believe the meaning of Give Me My Flowers Here On Earth.

THE JOURNEY CONTINUES?

THE JOURNEY CONTINUES?

Everyone’s Earthly Journey starts at birth, but our Journey with God began long before then.  In Jeremiah 1:5 God said, Before I formed thee in the womb I knew thee.

Because of the direction, my Earthly Journey has taken, I now understand and believe past knowledge is there for future use, and not to be suppressed because of gut-wrenching personal reasons (rape, diseases, selfishness, etc.).  For some this means nothing.  They pride themselves on Woe Is Me.

I believe during our lifetime we experience things that are designed to benefit others as well as ourselves. The blessings come when we choose to share learned information from the School of Hard Knocks with others.  I am not one to say or claim things at the spur of the moment; I like to know what am talking about, so if I was to say to you, I have Been There and Done That, you had better believe I know how to fix that, change that, or live with that.  Some way or another, I am going to get that blankly right.

With prior experience, we have to have the ability to move forward in order to use and turn those unpleasant experiences into helpmates.  This can be manufactured by converting as much negative energy as possible into positive energy that pulsates with previous knowledge.  Most negative experiences carry a payload of useful information if you know how to access it; if not, Ask Somebody!  Especially someone who has knowledge of Jesus Christ and who is in the Church, but not there as a false witness.

Find a Bible Believing Bible, Bible Teaching Pastor or those like-minded in Christ.

Oftentimes, on our Journey, we keep running into the same dilemmas.  It’s possible that elephant in the room drama may not have been resolved?  Perhaps God is trying to tell you something?  The main reasons Preachers keep repeating themselves, is in hopes someone out there will finally understand.  But just in case you are listening and want to stop repeating that same pattern, do something different like Go To Church.

We need to get personal with Jesus so he can help us dodge the temptations of Sin throughout Our Journey.  He’s not going to help us if we don’t try to help ourselves, so I tend to lean towards Christ because those devils and devellets have a ton of UN-welcomed and UN-proven experiences that can bring us down.  Another reason I never take the advice from someone who has never experienced the situation.  You do you, I’ll do Jesus Christ who has done it all.

If we keep living, something unacceptable will happen, and when it does, I will go to my knees in prayer in order to gain control of self-defeating thoughts, plans, and actions that should have been let go of long ago, instead of hanging on to My Way.  With Christ I am better educated and able to move on to better times while helping others, coupled with defeating Satan at his own game.

Stay strong!  Win or lose Satan will still be waiting for the past to come roaring back in a moment of weakness; A perfect time to cry out to Jesus instead of using that other word.  🙂

Just by incorporating a Christ-like thought process, we can learn from our past, enabling times gone by to be useful in our current position.  So, I have concluded that all things good, especially the bad, can turn into Godly Gifts, even placed into divine order, as they bring about Great Worth to the hearers and believers of God’s Word, including ourselves as The Journey Continues…

It’s Something To Think About!

To God Be The Glory!  It is in Jesus name that we pray.  Amen
