Daily Prompt: The Danger in “Believing”

The secular world has borrowed and defiled many of God’s holy words and truths.  Man is becoming famous for stealing the Words of God and pretending they are their own unique ideas to sell books or speak to the lost in our world.  If you are knowledgeable in the Word, you will not be fooled into believing the false doctrine of others.

Many times I see just the word “Believe” on a plaque or canvas and I wonder, “Believe what?”  You can believe anything but it helps to believe in the truth, always.  People of the world feel foolish or simple-minded to believe in anything as simple a concept as “God.”  They feel they are too intelligent and educated to be fooled into such a primitive belief.  This is a world-wide belief as far back as man existed and continues today for good reason.  It’s true.  Is it explainable?  Not really, but those of us who believe, know it.

Who can explain the spiritual truth of Faith?  If you don’t have it, it does not exist for you.  It is something between your heart and God and God cannot be fooled.  It has to do with genuine love inside and need to humble yourself because you love and really desire God because you need Him.  We all do need God but few get this because the world does it’s best to make you feel foolish in this desire by making you prideful and “empowered” within yourself.

Anyone that has even the slightest spiritual enlightenment or sensitivity knows that there is something more in our world than meets the eye.  Many of us have experienced it and know there is another realm to this world that cannot be seen with the eye, but can be felt in the spirit.  This is where your “good vibes” bad vibes” idea comes from and we all know this is true.  Some are completely thick-skinned or oblivious to others “feelings” towards them while others pick up on that right away.

There is that feeling of peace and serenity with prayer and meditation and the unsettled or angry feelings that come with fighting and cursing.  There are definite intents and intent is everything.  Just like someone smiling while stabbing another in the back, literally or figuratively.  Just because you are smiling does not mean you have “good vibes.”  This is what many are finding out with those who currently control our mainstream media news, entertainment and governments.

The world’s art and entertainment has long been on a slippery slope of ugliness, negativity, hypocrisy, insincerity as well as perversion and downright evil.  A society’s culture represents the society and right now it’s not good.  Most people are basically still good, still pretty down to earth and knowledgeable BUT the media currently representing all of us does not represent us fairly or accurately for the most part because it’s only there to serve the needs of the few who control it.

Believe things are going to get better and then make it so!

God Bless Everyone This Easter Season

It was such a beautiful morning out here I decided to make a photo shoot out of my little stroll on the grounds.

the sin of growing old in a vain culture

and various dealings with the fickle finger of fate.

There is a core of strength and protection all around me.  It is called faith.  Faith from the living Word that never fails.

Daily Prompt: Sink or Swim?

So is a little thing like your life considered an overwhelming situation?

Funny that I have felt for so long like I have been dog paddling trying to survive in my life.  I never seem to get anywhere so it’s not like I am actually swimming.  With God’s help I have not sunk yet, but the older I get the more tired I become.

Most people have some kind of family support in their lives, but this has never been my case and I don’t say this to feel sorry for myself.  I come from a severely dysfunctional family of many secrets, but it helped me to become the strong woman I am.  It is very had being related to a family of mentally ill substance abusers because you never hear from anyone unless they need something.  None were ever in a position to help me and I dealt with that by shutting down emotionally and just kept swimming pretending that I was not dying inside.  I lied, because I died.

Now at least I can forgive myself for not making it to my imagined finish line that I drew for myself in my life because of the lovely surprise of our mortgage meltdown just a few years after finally purchasing my own home.  I think that was one of the finish anchors that finally told me to give up, I can’t win for losing.

Po Girl has to shine because she has no choice.  Jesus said he would never leave or forsake those that follow Him and I believe Him.  Good folk don’t usually cotton to those from the wrong side of the track as well as having to live in an all white neighborhood and our family is racially mixed though most of us look pretty white as far as that goes.  I was not allowed to play with a lot of the little white kids, I would get chased home even though I played very nicely with the other children.  It wasn’t until things were even pointed out to me about racial differences or skin colors that I even noticed I was a little darker than the other kids, especially in the summer when I was very dark, but that’s another blog post.

My outcome is that I will never give up because I don’t know how, thanks to God, and I still believe in miracles and following the Golden Rule.

 

 

Daily Prompt: Forever Faithful and Grateful

Faithful2006Jesusfluffyclouds1enhancedwillofmyFather

You can’t be faithful to God and have an ungrateful heart.  Most that don’t believe in God or do believe but choose to hate Him and try to defile Him in all that they do seem to have a childish mindset that God is like a genie that grants wishes.  They don’t get what they want out of their life so blame God or think because they make bad choices and have poor impulse control that God does not exist.

The only people who can think this way are those that were not taught spiritual truth.  The term is “walking in the dark.”  They say ignorance is bliss but in the long run it really is death.  Man will be held accountable for deliberate ignorance.  God knows if you know something is wrong but choose to do it anyway or when you find something out that you know is true but try to pretend that it’s not and try to blame it on our current liberal propaganda that is obviously destroying His world.  I think we were all born with certain inner knowledge, as most creatures, of what to do and what not to do.  It is called instinct.  Since man is very selfish by nature because of that survival instinct, it is important to temper this selfishness with civility or spiritual training or any kind of civilization would be quite impossible.  Sometimes it truly looks like many are completely brainwashed by the low-grade movies churned out by the greedy and depraved.  Just cause you watch it on a screen, does not make it real life or anything worth imitating.  Man is very easily influenced by others, that’s how we learn.  It’s shameful that most of any entertainment that exists in America has so much gratuitous sex and violence instead of instilling values and reinforcing the positive qualities of mankind.

FaithfulAbstain

People seem to forget, that much like our earth is being mindlessly trashed, if we are not mindful of how we are raising human beings and treating one another, there could come a point of no return for everything.  We are not guaranteed tomorrow, we are not guaranteed the use of this earth, especially if we don’t take care of it.  The same goes for others in our lives that are not treated with the love and kindness that Jesus spoke of.  This is exactly why He is the truth, the life and the only way.

So yes, I consider myself faithful.  How could I not be faithful to someone who loved me enough to die for me?
