Daily Prompt: Understanding

On earth, there isn’t much found.  And judging by the number of wars since recorded time, I doubt there ever will be understanding.  We may very well be a species that will end up destroying ourselves so that other animals can live safer, cleaner lives on this planet as long as it keeps spinning.

The heart of man will never change.  Jesus was born over 2000 years ago and His words of love and forgiveness have been preached for as long.  His words are mocked by most, but I am not sure what they find funny about it.  Are most really so far gone spiritually that they think of love as something to laugh at?  Yet when horrible things happen in this world, our corrupt news sources print stories about “people getting together in love and peace.”  The words of Christ, yet they make no mention of Him.  Why is there no real understanding?  Why are most still like stubborn, ignorant, disobedient children when it comes to worship and thanks?

# ALL LIVES MATTER!

GunsDontKillFaith

No one needs to prove that the ignorance of man knows no bounds.  All one need do is to review the history of man.

The fact that some think they are so evolved and that many feel we are an advanced civilization is ludicrous to me.  It defies logic in the face of the facts.

There is a movement that thinks they are a good idea and that movement is known as “Black Lives Matter.”  They’re not wrong, but they’re not correct either because this is called discrimination and their race has supposedly fought against discrimination being used against them for many years.  I am flabbergasted at anyone who cannot see the gross hypocrisy in this phrase and then have the audacity to become angry when they hear the phrase “All Lives Matter.”  The fact that some do not get this is the reason that so many innocent have died.

All Lives Matter is simply stating a fact.  Black Lives Matter shrieks of discrimination, hypocrisy and hate.  Maybe we should blame the white race for all these years for remaining quiet after slowly being slaughtered at the hands of the black man.  Blame the white man for being scared to speak the truth that “We are all mad as hell and not going to take it any more!”  If I can feel this way, I can only imagine what some drunk, red-neck is thinking right about now after hearing of yet more innocent white victims at the hands of some demented, evil black man.

If we were keeping score, there would be no contest as to who is the enemy to anyone and shame on anyone for being part of the problem and not the solution no matter what race you are.  Not the one that forgives, not the one that saves, not the one that takes that high road.  Whatever you do to others shows what you think of yourself.  Anyone who can take another’s life so callously hates themselves and that’s sad enough, but how dare they try to take as many with them as so many love to do.  This is evil 101 and they don’t get the fact that we are all going to die anyway and the rest of us go to heaven.  They won’t, according to the Word.

There is a hell and not just here on earth.  You will bring your anger with you when you leave this world and it ain’t gonna be like some cool horror movie where you will get to be one of the devil’s henchman’s in hell for your evil, you will be the lowest and suffer eternal torment, brewing in that same hell you created and brought with you.  You will always be with you and imagine this if you cannot stand to be with yourself because you never learned to forgive or love, even yourself.  Don’t you owe yourself at least this much?  If you don’t feel the world loves you, then love yourself that much more and not in a selfish way.

This is why Jesus preached the Word of love and forgiveness to His people, so they would finally be free of the burden of the lies of the enemy.  They could learn to forgive and love themselves and for this reason, love and forgive others.  It’s OK that you are not perfect.  It’s OK to be mad at times.  It’s not OK to act out in bad ways when you are.  Forgiveness of self is paramount to finding love in this world, even if others don’t love you.  Once you achieve this, everything else in life is easy.  This is why prayer is so important in asking God to help you in the name of Jesus.  Don’t be too prideful for this.  If you can’t get to this place, may God have mercy on you.  It’s the very least you owe the world.  If you can’t contribute anything, at least don’t take away from it.

God bless all who read my message.  Peace be yours in the name of Jesus.

Life’s Hopes and Dreams

If I were to imagine that the only use for my life would be to live and work diligently as insects do and then just die, I would say what I always thought as a child.  “What’s the point?”  When I became painfully aware of death as a young child, many times I wondered why I was doing anything.  Why any of us even bothered.

I then became aware of those that changed the world for others.  I felt strongly that this is the reason we are all here.  To make a difference for the better.  I find it very disturbing that most people are not very intelligent or wise.  That most don’t share my belief that we can all be someone else’s hero.  That many use other people for their selfish ends and proceed to lash out like a small child at the least provocation to anything or anyone that does not agree with them.  Most have absolutely no knowledge as to the miracle of life and just how precious every one of us are.

It’s really not their fault if they are not taught this in some way.  Humans only know what they learn from others.

I have suffered through a very hard and cruel life and when I was a young woman I made up my mind that I was going to write an autobiography, anonymously of course, in the hopes to help others that have shared similar fates and to warn women, especially mothers, of what not to do to their children.

Most don’t really have a clue what they are doing in life and will never realize this while they are here so there’s no problem for them at all.  Everyone I know that is content in his or her ignorance does not appear to have the ability to look beyond what they are automatically doing.  They never question any bad decision made even when confronted by others they have hurt.  Any accusation is incredulous to them.  What an odd way to live.  Socrates said “The unexamined life is not worth living” but I don’t know if I agree sometimes.  Some of the most self-deluded ignorant people are the amongst the most content that I know.  Ignorance is bliss to many but I just don’t understand how.

I believe an individual’s cloak should be removed from their sins if they are hurting others.  Jesus believed this as well.  He said this was why he was hated by many.  We should all be allowed to live as we wish as long as it doesn’t effect others adversely.  This almost never happens.  Anything we do does somehow effect others.  Even the act of hiding one’s head under the sand and committing the sin of omission.

Writing 101: Opposite Tuesday

Today’s writing challenge was to writing about my worst fear in a style that is not my own.  Rebel that I am, I refuse to talk of anything that is negative.  Fear makes one weak and I plan on staying strong.  Also I wouldn’t have a clue on how to be someone other than who I was born to be.

Good to know that if you hadn’t asked us to write about something negative, I would be bitching about something.  I guess my fear is that I will become a slave to what I have learned from my life experiences and not a slave to the truth.

Luckily I know better.  I know Jesus.  The thing that I love the most about Him is His human side.  The parts where I heard He cried because He dared to care about a world that didn’t love Him back.  The parts in the New Testament that say He chose to give His life because He loved us anyway.  This is the part that tells me He was not completely human because most of us would do the opposite.  Even though I know Christ, I still don’t want to do things for those that are my enemy.  I will pray for them and not harm them, but I seldom will actually go out of my way to help someone that is against me.  Why would I?  Why would anyone?  We know there is a good chance that the enemy will become strong with this help and destroy us.  This is the way of the world.  The way that Jesus told us was wrong.

I loved the part where He warned us that when the world hates us for walking in love and the light, remember that it hated Him first.  Most of us hate being hated so we are careful how we walk, careful not to rock any boats and provoke our enemies.  I love the part that most forget about and that is the believers will do even greater works than He because He goes to the Father.

Writing 101: Cereal Postmortem

Calumetcemetaryerasetexture2Woke up refreshed for the first time in a while after sleeping approximately 8 hours.  That’s a huge deal for me.

I can just recall the part of my dream before waking of looking out of a large window onto a funeral procession of old.

I felt relaxed and calm, not sad or upset so I don’t know what it really represented to me.

With new eyes and a different outlook, I was able to find some important information to resolve one of the problems I have been working on.  Finding this out has made a difference on what I will be doing in the near future and has given me hope.  I still have a lot of things up in the air, but I finally have my hope back which is everything to me.
