” Put on the armor of light”
” Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not”
We all walk our paths through this journey of life, we each will go through many different times, with some of those times being the same and some, very different to one another. As we walk through the dark times, we may feel like we are alone? We are never alone and God is always there for us, for he is the spirit that holds a place deep within us all. We just have to truly believe, have complete faith, so he can guide us out of the darkness and into the light. God sent his only son to us, all wrapped in Human flesh, Jesus walked through his path of this journey here with us, as we crossed the many crossroads of these paths, he showed and taught us many things, so we can keep moving forward always, it is when we go backwards, that shows of how much we need to get back to the faith in God, so Jesus can lead us into the path of righteousness. It is when we have complete trust in Jesus, that we will keep moving forward, as we overcome all the battles we may encounter.
Sometimes we will feel so trapped within the darkness of our troubles, that we don’t even give a thought toward Jesus Christ, we become so consumed with the darkness and trying to find our way, that we become lost and lose all confidence in ourselves, lose all the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, to the point that we feel worthless and incapable. When we lose the drive to keep moving forward, we then doubt everything that may come to us, even that what Jesus will send us, so we can find that confidence and faith, to get out of the darkness and back into the light, to continue moving forward along our paths of this journey.
Jesus may be the blood that travels through our hearts and warms our bodies deeply with love, while God is that Holy Spirit that lives within our souls, so that when we truly feel the warmth passing through us, we can always not just get through the dark times, but see the light of salvation ahead of us, as we keep moving forward through this journey. Yes the dark times can seem really dark, with no signs of light? But when we keep to the faith and belief in God and his son Jesus, then these dark times will give way, to the brightest light we will ever know. Just because we do not see God, or Jesus, does not mean they do not exist? They are always there within us, we just need to truly feel their presence and love within us, so we can always have the trust that they will guide us out of the darkness and into the true light of salvation.
Easier said than done, as there are many who are totally afraid of the dark. Then you add in all the troubling times, the ugliness, now not only do many fear the dark, now they fear this journey with each step, and with all the ugliness of this society, only shows that there is more fear in this world, then there is love. God didn’t create all this so we could fear it all, he created all this for us to enjoy and be at peace, with each step throughout this journey. Some may put on that fake smile so others will think you are happy, while few actually feel the joy within our souls, which then God puts a real and true smile on your face, so you can share the love of Jesus, with all those around you. This journey through life is a lot more than the material things that we gather along our paths, this journey is more about the true feelings that is deep within our hearts and souls, so we then can have the trust, faith and love of Jesus always, as we then share that love with all those around us.
One of God’s ten conmandments is, ” love thy neighbor as yourself”, the way this society has grown today is, we have totally lost sight of this one. I can remember as a child, we all knew our neighbors and looked out for one another, today, not only did we forget this conmandment, we also forgot who our neighbors are, as we isolate ourselves from all those around us. This whole journey through life, is not just believing and having faith in God and Jesus, it is also of how we treat each other, help one another and just simply get along together in unity, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life. We have become so consumed in our own little worlds, that we also have lost all empathy for one another, when someone falls, we just walk by like they are not even there, when someone reaches out for help, we ignore them like the plague, why do we do this? Quite simply, we have totally lost sight of who our neighbors are and they are not just the ones who live next door, they actually walk their paths as we do, throughout this journey. Your neighbor is not just the person next door, they are the ones who live within your community, which you pass by without even a simple hello. We don’t have to be friends with everybody around us, but yes we should simply be friendly with those around us, show more compassion and empathy, which comes from the love of Jesus within us, so we all then travel through the darkness, to always see the light of salvation on the other side of the darkness.
When we all wake up each day, get ourselves ready for the days events, before we leave our houses, we first will put on this armor, which we feel it will protect us from all harm, protect us from whstever darkness will come to us? But what we are really doing is, putting on the mask with the fake smile, so we can seem to others as being happy? We are never truly happy, unless we feel the joy of God within ours souls, we are never truly happy, if we do not feel the blood of Jesus passing through our hearts and warming our bodies with his love. We have become so cold toward one another, that it is clear that we lost this love and empathy along our paths. Yes maybe there is some still there somewhere? But with the way the media brings to us all the ugliness and drama within their agendas, they don’t want us to see it, so they can keep bringing their fear agendas to us all. With all the fear and ugliness the media brings us daily, sometimes I think they are Satan, keeping us from feeling the true joy and love, that Jesus shares with us all, as we walk our paths through journey of life.
” With each day comes the light and with each night comes darkness, showing that the darkness never lasts with the light right around the corner”
” The sun may light up the day, but the true light is within us, as God lights up our souls even brighter than the sun”
