” Jesus said the problem is within us: Out of the heart…….. proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: What a list! our real war is a rebellion against God- and it brings unending misery”
We all walk a path through this journey of life, just as Jesus did when he came to us. The difference between us within this society and the society back when Jesus walked his path is, we are far removed from the journey of Christ, so much so that it leaves us with much doubt and a lack of self confidence within the paths we walk. We are all so guilty of getting away from the house of God, because this society has become so fast paced, we use that as an excuse, to not enter the doors of the house of God on the Holy day of Sunday. But what we tend to forget in today’s world is, you don’t have to enter the house of God every Sunday if only you truly believe in God and Jesus Christ, they are deep within our hearts and souls, just that we have buried them so deep, we really can’t feel their love anymore. You can go to your favorite quiet place, whether in your home, or within nature, so you than can speak to God with your prayers, now some may say he never speaks back? Oh yes he does, just that you have to open your eyes and hearts wide, so not to only feel him within, but to see the signs he puts in front of you, to guide you along your path of this journey through life.
With all the ugliness and the hatred that surrounds us today, especially in the city of Chicago, where the violence is so bad, many are being killed in the streets daily, is all the proof we need to truly see of how true this quote from Mark really is. The evil will consume us when we don’t truly feel God’s love within our hearts and souls and when the evil consumes us so, we then bury deeply the true feelings of Christ, just so others won’t see us as weak? This is when we become someone for who we truly are not, this is when we not only lie to others, but we lie to ourselves, so we can try to be as normal as we think normal is. Now we are only doing what we need to do, to survive in this cruel and evil world.
God didn’t create this world, we ourselves created this world and we can only blame ourselves for all the ugliness and hatred that surrounds us. The solution is quite simple in that all we need to do is, bring Jesus back in our lives, truly feel his love deep within our hearts and souls, so we than can share this love with each other and not be ashamed of this feeling anymore. Out of love comes peace and joy, while out of evil brings all this hatred and ugliness, We the people of this society have to stand as one, against all the crap, then it will change over time, so we all can live in peace and true happiness.
I get the fact that fear has a strong hold on us today, simply because we have become to afraid of all the gangs and the violence they bring, we all have become a Victim of all these gangs, as we have let them just walk all over us? The time is now to basically treat these gangs as we did back as a child in school, when the Bully tried to control us with our fear and how do we handle this? stand up to these gangs and put the fear of God right back in them and when we do it together as one, then eventually these gangs will disappear simply because, the fear they used on us, will not work anymore, making them, fear us, as they cower away, like the true coward that they are.
There will always be evil within this journey of life, we the people that walk this journey just have to be smarter, better and stronger, never lose the feeling of Jesus’s love within our hearts and souls, when we become a Victim of whatever, just stand up to whom or what that has made us the Victim, so we than can fix what we need to fix, then move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey of life, in the peace and happiness that we all so deserve.
” The formula for peace is quite simple and within each of our hearts and souls”
” Good will always win over evil, just that we need to be stronger with more confidence in ourselves moving forward”
” The love of Jesus Christ is within us all, we just have to truly feel his love and acknowledge him as our savior who died for us all”
” Evil will always be within this journey, we just have to deal differently of the evil with confidence”
