Never Give Up, God Needs You

Suicide.

Most of us have thought about it, maybe even tried it ourselves or know someone who actually succeeded.  Don’t be blindsided by the enemy or those who try to glamorize it in prose.   Everyone gets tired.

I had a weird thought as someone who believes in heaven and hell.  I really don’t want to believe that God damns anyone in so much pain that they can’t go on anymore.  He gave us all a way to go on whether we like it or not and that’s just a fact that no one can deny that recognizes the truth.

And that truth is Jesus is the only way to eternal life.  And the only way in this material world that we can fight the devil down with His everlasting Power of Love.

When you feel weak, humble yourself to God and ask for the help you need to fight your earthly battles.  It will be given unto you.  Is it not easy, but you can do it, you know you can because you are the best thing that this world has ever seen.  You are the only you there is and ever will be.  Do it for God and for the world while you are blessed to be here for the short time we are afforded.  Dare to be a hero and continue on in faith.  No matter who or what comes against you.  Christ has you covered in His blood.

Daily Prompt: A Few Facts We Can’t Ignore

Facts of Life

There is no real “law” of reciprocity in life.  You will not always reap what you sow but many times what you sow will somehow disappear, usually by being ignored or stolen by someone else.

That being said, life is seldom if ever fair.  Once you face this, you will understand a lot in your life and hopefully live it with great care to your decisions and how they effect you and everything around you.

Not everything is your fault or your responsibility.  You cannot control other people or situations to a large degree so don’t try.  Do what you can, what you must, but sometimes you just have to let things play out.

It is said that “things will pass” but that does not mean that it will not damage or even destroy some of us.  We have seen it or sadly experienced it.

We all differ in our resilience but developing intestinal fortitude will carry you though most of life’s challenges.

It’s OK to let someone else do it.  Regardless of some of the hype, you can’t have it all or even some of it at times regardless of how hard you try or how much you want it.

Just “believing” means nothing.  What do you believe in?  It could be a Fairy tale and that would be foolish.  Believe in yourself to keep trying.  Believing in God to give you the strength to keep your faith is something worth believing.

Daily Prompt: The Present State of Existence

Things wrong with our society, culture, world…

Chain migration, forced busing, anything where any human beings are artificially moved and placed where they don’t belong or don’t really wish to be is wrong and the fact that no one appears to notice this is worse. It is completely unfair to all the people involved and those doing the forcing and the manipulation of others need to be forcibly stopped themselves. Those who use force must be shown force for the good of everyone.

Some of our problems have been caused by simply choosing to ignore bad or dangerous behavior of others for what ever reason, especially those that have deemed themselves better than the rest of their society. Humans tend to go along with others they think superior to themselves. Being falsely told this repeatedly by the mainstream media makes some believe the lies spoken must be true. I notice all of the changes they demand on others never effect where or how they personally live. This needs to be brought to their attention because if it isn’t there is a huge possibility that their detached, unreasonable and dangerous decisions will bring about actions and much needed reactions in others that will not bode well for them in the end.

Jews were forced places as well, so were the Japanese, blacks and many others throughout history. Men need to stop trying to force their issues and ideas onto others that really want no part of it. They need to learn to live and let others live their own lives. They especially need to learn to share, stop playing corrupt, manipulative games for their own personal gains while everyone else loses.

We are not on this earth to be forced to do anything to help a few achieve their own selfish goals to our own detriment.   This selfish behavior is considered normal because of their careful indoctrination of the peasants.   Humans are such control freaks by nature, the most dangerous of all the species and will sooner or later cause their own extinction. Maybe this is a good thing.   You have to wonder what our problem really is.

Now that I am older, wiser and fully awake I no longer pray very much except to thank Him for everything. I now speak to God because I have so many questions.   One of the main ones is why on earth of all the animals we have such an intelligent mind over any other life form but are also so much more devious and dangerous than any of them. Since when does a higher intellect make anyone more evil?   Maybe when you look to yourself for guidance and not to God? Seems clear as crystal to me. How did His Son tell us to live? “LOVE ONE ANOTHER!”

Never in any spiritual teaching are we supposed to harm and take advantage of anyone. Never are we supposed to be destroyers and liars, but builders and teachers of truth. Our culture is now being run by narcissistic psychopaths who answer to no one and mock the very idea of God. They are completely at a loss to explain everything created with design around them, so they come out with “Intelligent Design” or some completely fictional “Science” theory. They think by using the word “Science,” which is the study of facts that I believe have a physical basis in fact, in front of the word “Theory” which is complete fiction someone thought up, it makes it believable or true. To someone who is naive or well indoctrinated to this nonsense it passes as fact.

The insanity of this is these scientific theories are now given more credence by the mainstream of our culture than religion, but in fact there is more proof of a God’s existence than any fictional narcissistic theory someone cooks up. My theory is that man will render himself extinct with his own diabolical ego. That we are a species of evil, demonic as the fallen angel himself and we only have one chance to prove ourselves, one life. We can continue our selfishness and stupidity or we can humble ourselves before God and ask Him for the wisdom and guidance to live in His world the way He intended. No one else can make this choice for you no matter who they think they are.

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Transformation Within

Life is constant change but many of us remain stagnant in who we are as people our entire lives.  We stick to wrong and false beliefs that we learned from other dysfunctional people in our lives.  We do what the world tells us to do, not what God means for us to do in our lives.  We are not letting God do a transformation within us.

It was written that God called from heaven when Jesus was baptized telling Him who He was to God.  How many of us will never hear what God thinks of us because we have all kinds of stumbling blocks by not living the life destined for us,  being disobedient, selfish & self-centered or being distracted by all the other things in the world in our lives everyday.How many of us will ever really be up to the challenge of “Taking up our cross to follow Jesus?”  How many of us let the Holy Spirit minister to us with an open spirit ourselves?  Are any of us really willing to be obedient “even unto death” with all the pleasures and treasures tempting us here on earth?It is a hard and narrow to path to walk in righteousness and hence the reason Jesus said few will enter the gates of heaven.  You have to have the heart for God to be willing to sacrifice personal gain and pleasure to serve Him.  Peace be to all who read and understand.

We Are All Worthy of Love

I was in jail before I was born.

Very unique start for anyone and I don’t really want to go into details of why this is so, other than I come from a severely dysfunctional family and sometimes this happens to folks like us who never asked to be born in the first place. That’s why when I hear the heartless say that some “just make excuses” for their lives, I wish that they could take a walk in their shoes, if only for a day.

September has been declared National Suicide Prevention Awareness month. I hate all these “National this and that” but I guess if they did not do this, some things would be forgotten until they happen to us personally.   This is a subject that needs to be thought about since it adversely effects so many people.

There are many reasons that people decide they would “rather not be here.” These are the people that do not know their true worth and internalize guilt. They do not realize that life is very hard and horrible for most of us and that we really do have to remember that our “second wind” will come very shortly because life is nothing but change. They probably take everything way too seriously and personally maybe keep expecting things to work out exactly how they planned. Anyone who as ever tried or contemplated suicide knows exactly what I am talking about.

As someone who has survived a suicide attempt as a teenager, I know the dangers of our thought process, especially when we don’t know any better, and just how much anger has to do with this decision.   I would honestly say that anger, not sadness, is more to do with this act. Supposedly depression is anger internalized. I could never express anger when I was young or I would have been severely punished. I saw anger all the time from my parents and even siblings, but thought I just didn’t have it in me to be mad until I started getting older. I would react in fear all the time. Fear turns to anger after a while, that’s just a fact. You can only fear for so long then you begin to get very angry at that intimidating factor, whatever it may be. This is how revolutions are born, by the way.

Jesus saves, even today. LOVE ONE ANOTHER! It is commanded, which means it’s not if you feel like it, but it’s something you must do and I wonder why? Look around and if you cannot see that Jesus is the only truth, life and way, then you are kidding yourself.  Everyone deserves love and should act like it by giving this needed love to others as well.

Chorus from Casting Crowns “Who Am I?”

“I am a flower quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow

            a wave tossed in the ocean, a vapor in the wind.

            Still you hear me when I’m calling, Lord, you catch me

            when I’m falling and you’ve told me who I am.

                                           I am yours!”

Daily Post: Mistake

What many of my decisions turn out to be.

This is strangely through no fault of my own.  If I was lazy, irresponsible or didn’t bother to think things through I would blame myself but since I do think things through and look at different scenarios, even worse case, it is odd to me for the fact that something completely out of the realm of possibility and out of my control pops up.  Even when this happens I still want to kick myself for doing anything at all, which is ridiculous of course.  I actually had a third-party, not a friend that I confide in that these kinds of things happen to me, ask me if I had a little cloud over my head that followed me around because they could see that odd, bad things would happen to me that did not make any sense.

When I was about 10 years old I could see that something very strange was being done to me and I asked my mother “Mom, how come every time I get to do something really fun, something bad happens to me.”  She said that wasn’t true, but I knew better.  It was not a self-fulfilling prophesy because in fact my mother always told me to “stop having my hopes up so high all the time.”  Granted I was around family members that were not reliable and very disappointing.  I never relied on them, but just on things like performing for the school play and then getting horribly ill with scarlet fever, not some psychosomatic illness because I was nervous.  I really could not wait and then “BLAM!”  Right before I was about to perform.  It was always something that I thought I could realistically foresee and yet something unexpected and shocking was sure to come my way.

I totally rebuke krap like that now, but do you think this stops it?  Just like finally buying my own home only to have the mortgage meltdown that no one could have foreseen.  I told myself worst case scenario is I get what I paid for my home when I sell it a number of years down the road because I was fixing it up with new windows and real ceramic tiling.  I finally stopped improvements when the property began losing value in 2007 or 2008.  Still hung onto it hoping that it would bounce back but I just found out that this home I was forced to give back to the bank sold at auction a couple of months ago for $60,000 and it held the full $134,000 mortgage at the time of bankruptcy and foreclosure.  You just never know and I will be a son of a mother if I will stop doing things because of this kind of stupid krap.  I will still keep on keeping on within reason and if nothing turns out right for me on this planet, so be it.  God’s will be done.  Why good things always happen to bad people and bad stuff happens to good people all the time is something I will never know for sure but I have my ideas.
