The Ugliness is from we the People

” There is always light at the end of all the darkness, we just have to get through the darkness to truly see the light”

We all walk a path through this journey of life, so to did Jesus when he came here with us, Jesus saw all the ugliness we brought to each other, but he stayed true to himself and showed his love for us all, with every step of his journey. We the people are what’s wrong with this Society, as we will stop at nothing to bring this ugliness to each other with our actions.

Way back when Adam took that forbidden fruit is when the ugliness of sin started, which we have never learned through all these years, that ugliness is bad and only keeps that wedge buried deep between us all, until we all truly feel the love that Jesus showed us, that the same love is deep within us as well, we will never change and the darkness of all the ugliness, will forever hang over all our heads. When we truly feel this love within us and then share it with each other, that is when the darkness over head will disappear and we all can truly see the light, which will bring us to the path of righteousness, so we all can be at peace and happiness with each step of this journey.

We all start this journey very much the same way and no one is any different from another, okay we may have a different color, gender, or even religion, but these difference are what makes us unique to each other, it is just we have never learned to use the uniqueness the proper way, even after Jesus came here with us and showed us all. As we grow into this Society, there are plenty of ways along our paths for us to learn properly, but instead we attack one another in any way we can. Just like a school Bully will try to control us, we do the same to each other, when one looks a bit different, or maybe slow or challenged as we grow up as a child, we then mock and make fun of that person, showing no empathy or compassion for that person, we don’t think of that person at all, we only think of ourselves and how we look towards others if we don’t follow along. God forbid when that person gets hurt physically, then we proceed to laugh and make fun of even more, this is not of who we truly are, but it is who we have become over the years, because we have never learned by the error of our ways.

Now within this Society of great technology, with all the social media and the news media whether print or what we see on the television, we have created such great drama with all these gadgets we have in our hands, it has made it even easier to further all the ugliness, simply because we can hide behind these gadgets, without facing what we fear most in this society and that is, we fear the confrontation of each other above everything else around us. We have forgotten just how to simply talk to each other face to face, a lot of this comes from the Political correction we let in to our lives, we become offended very easily because this correction has weakened us so, through this political correction we have lost the ability to respect and have dignity of one another, which furthers the ugliness and makes the darkness even darker, with no light in sight.

With the light comes peace and when we are at peace, we are happy as we walk our paths of this journey. First we have to get over ourselves, even with all the technology we have, we really are not as smart as we think we are, everything we do we think we do it better than each other, we get so caught up within our own heads and our own little world, we then let the clouds of our judgments, simply cloud all our actions we may take. Just look within the walls of Washington DC, all these Individuals show nothing but ugliness and hate, we are going to have a Presidential election coming up in 2020 and already the Democrats and the Republicans are attacking one another. They have already turned the most powerful position on the land into one, with no respect or dignity, they have turned the office of President into nothing but a Hollywood celebrity contest, this next election is already shaping up into a three ring circus show, with zero respect for the office they are running for, we the people need to be smarter, we need to vote smarter and end all this corruption and hate, that flows within the walls of Washington DC.

We all have our troubles, but when we don’t fix those troubles properly, this is when we bring the troubles to each other, which furthers the ugliness around us. Through all this ugliness shows just how dumb we have become through the years of our existence, you would think we would of become smarter by now, we will never become any smarter as we keep attacking each other, as we mock and make fun of each other with each step, it really does not matter what part of this planet you are from, or who you may think you are, we are all Humans walking a path through this journey, the journey may have a lot to deal with, but when we do it correctly and while we truly feel the love of Jesus within us, then share that love with each other, this is how we make the journey feel easier, while the ugliness disappears and true peace and happiness comes to us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” The hatred comes from the ugliness we the people bring to the society, we need more love to truly be of who we are”

” Technology is supposed to be better and make this journey easier for all, but we have totally gone the opposite way from it’s intention”

” We the people started this ugliness, we the people can end this ugliness as well”

Life is not about buying your way into a status………….

I get the fact that each generation through this society, should be better than the one of the past, but at what cost are we really paying, when we buy our way into anything, without working hard and paying the dues as we should? With this latest scandal of the paying big money to get your child into an elite college, who are the ones really being hurt here? It’s the ones that were rejected because someone paid big dollars to get their child in, without even working hard to be accepted into that college. The ones that were rejected may have just done everything right and everything as they should, but because someone has money, doesn’t give them the right to jump ahead of the pack, just to give their child the prestige, or the right to claim a higher status over their Peers.

Going to college wherever that may be, should be respectful and full of knowledge, for whom ever the person is that is going. College should yes be a fun time for any student, as well as teach our children, just how to work hard and when you work hard, life will reward you with big rewards. You think those children whose Parents bought their way into the elite college, will work hard for their knowledge? Exactly!!! They are going to think that you can buy anything in life, plus they are going to party everyday, instead of working hard to achieve great things, as they walk their paths through this journey of life.

I agree we all deserve some breaks from time to time, but only because you have worked hard for what you have, or for where you are? But when you buy your way into something only means one thing and one thing only, you simply have cheated the system and robbed someone else, for trying to help themselves and move forward, so they to can live the dream and earn respect with every step. We all have dreams, we all have hopes, but when you buy into something, now your shattering all hope and destroying any dreams away from another, while you are only thinking of yourself and no other.

Life doesn’t have to be about any status, nor does it have to be about money, although………… Yes you need money to pay the bills and live, but really now, life really is about being happy, peaceful and sharing your love and compassion with each other. the money is only extracurricular and by no means do we truly need it, just that in this society full of greed, we have come to attached to it, which has divided us, instead of bringing us together within the love and joy, that Jesus Christ brought to each of us everyday. Money may buy us material things, money may help us cheat and jump ahead of each other, but money will never buy true happiness, money will never buy us love, as love is already within each of us, we can’t take the money with us when we depart this journey, so why are we so hell bent on trying to acquire all the money?

” The only status in life that should matter, is your status with Jesus Christ, to keep the faith with great hope always”

” Instead of trying to show off to others with our wealth, may we try showing off Jesus Christ , for the true love and happiness always”

” College is good to be there for the right reasons, but not just to achieve a status”

When the view becomes obstructed

Sometimes our view of whatever we are looking at becomes obstructed, we can’t see clearly enough to pass a correct judgment, so we then make up any judgment that we think will be okay and for us, to move forward in a way we think we are better for it. This journey through life has many obstructions and at times we get frustrated which then has us not thinking through our actions, when we do this we just don’t hurt ourselves, we hurt all those around us as well, when all we simply have to do is, think and see through anything, before we actually take the action, so we all can be spared any real pain and hurt,

Most of the time we don’t want to see clearly as to spare us any pain and hurt, but this journey through life comes in what is known as a life cycle and just like any cycle, everything revolves in a circle, while yes it may be away from us, but eventually like all circles, it will come around once again. This is why we all need to see through and see clearly everything, making our future actions more informed, saving us from any pain and hurt that we really need not feel.

This journey through life may have a lot of elements to it, but when managed properly, these elements will help us walk peacefully along our paths of this journey. Sometimes these life events will come to us and try to control and disrupt our lives, this makes it very easy to not look clearly at what we are looking at, just so we can try to control any pain and hurt from effecting us so, we then hide deeply within ourselves as if we become invisible to all that is around us, this only compounds the pain and hurt further, which when the pain becomes to much, will then come to the surface like an explosion that rocks us to the point we can not handle. Anything in life when managed properly can be handled easily, just that we have to clear the weeds from our sight, to see more clearly all that is around us, then we can move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

Look deeply into what you see, let your true feelings keep you in tune to all that is around you, so when the different cycles of life come a knocking, you will be ready, willing and able to deal with them properly, as you stay in control, without them controlling you. When we see clearly of all that is around you, we than can act properly , which will help us see through our actions, before we take the action, saving us all from the pain, the hurt and the sorrow, as we then walk our paths peacefully throughout this journey of life. With the pain and hurt we become to rash with our decisions and our actions, we react without thinking of the reactions, which then has us becoming way too negative and forces us come up with any solution, instead of the proper solution. Jesus came to us and showed us just how to walk our paths of this journey, so we all than can find that true path of righteousness, as we all live in the peace and happiness we all so deserve, without any of the ugliness we see around us today.

” Look deeply into what you see, to think of the reaction before you take the action”

” We all hurt from much pain and a lot of the pain can be avoided if we only saw more clearly before we react to what we think we saw”

” The journey of life has many elements, but when managed properly the elements never become to big too handle”

” All circles are connected with links, with wear and tear links become weak and break, why we need to see clearly to replace all broken links to be better and stronger”

As Jesus walked this journey, so do we

” How can you say to your brother, Brother let me remove that splinter in your eye, when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye?

*** LK 6:42a***

This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and as we enter into the forty day journey of Lent, let us remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us, showing just how deeply he loved us, while he to walked this journey, showing us all that yes, we to can share our love within, with each other.

Basically this quote talks of, before we can reach out to help another, we first need to help ourselves and over come all that we may be going through and struggling through. If you want to pull that splinter out of your brothers eye, then first clear the obstruction from your own, so you than can see clearly of what you are doing and as you see clearly, then the clouds of your judgments, will then be gone as the love within you, will then not only comfort you, but comfort your brother, as you remove the splinter, so he to can see clearly along this journey of life.

We all have our issues as we walk our paths of this journey, but yet we always see the faults of others and never see any faults of our own, we are always quick to point the finger towards others, but never point the finger at ourselves and accept any blame for whatever we do, others will surely pick up on our faults before we even recognize them ourselves. We are all guilty of this behavior, but we will never admit to any faults we may have.

A lot of times these faults will bring us great shame, shame that brings us great pain and when we hurt deeply inside, we then bury these faults deep within, so we than can try to move forward like there is nothing holding us back. So as we do this, we than never look at our own faults, instead we point out the faults of others, which then will stop us from truly getting to know one another, only forcing us to look at each other superficially, without truly looking deeply at what we see. There is always more than what we may see initially, just that we don’t truly want to see, cause then it will make us look deeper into ourselves.

Jesus as he walked this journey with us, showed us all that when we stay true to ourselves, truly feel our feelings within and feel the warmth of his love within us, then we to can not only love ourselves, but love all those around us, without any evil or unwanted thoughts. Nobody ever wants to show any fault, as this will bring out weakness and within a broken society as we are currently in, then any weakness will bring us more shame and pain, which we then will be open to becoming a victim of any kind, furthering the pain for which we already have.

Weakness brings pain and in a society of fakness, weakness makes you vulnerable over those who pretend to be strong, as they then seem to be more powerful than they really are. We never want to admit to our faults, so we than can bury them and seem strong to those around us, while we then point the finger of fault on those around us. We are all guilty of pointing the finger of blame, which does nothing but deflect any blame from ourselves, so we then never fix what we need to fix, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

So as we walk yet another Lenten journey, let us do so as Jesus did these next forty days, let us sacrifice as Jesus did for us, as we truly get back in touch with our true feelings, unbury those faults as we work to fix what we need to fix, then we can truly move forward better and stronger and treat each other with respect, to keep our dignity, showing our true love for each other, then we can walk confidently on our paths, through this journey of life.

” Lets walk this journey of lent and sacrifice as Jesus did for us, to be better and stronger moving forward”

” Faults can only be fixed when we stay true to who we are, without burying them like they are nothing but dirty laundry”

” The journey of lent is a forty day journey, to get back to who we truly are, to become better and stronger moving forward”

” Our issues do not have to define us on our paths, they should help us to be better and stronger moving forward”

Good decision/bad decision



We all walk through this journey of life, the journey is all the same, but through the decisions we make on the paths we chose, we all may find that the journey is different for each of us, but as we get caught up within these decisions, it is our perception that is what makes the journey seem so different. We can all look at the same thing, but through our perception of that something, we will all see that thing very differently, that is a fact of life and one of those true facts we take so for granted.

We make decisions everyday of our lives, some decisions we make very easy, as others we procrastinate and take time to make, some decisions we make through the clouds of our judgments, as we don’t think through the reaction, before we take the action. Sometimes the decisions are clearly of common sense, but within this society where we lack the common sense, then we make the decision without thinking through the decision, which then has us back peddling, instead of moving forward along this journey.

We work our whole lives to build up a good self image of not just ourselves, but a good self image for those to perceive us by, then in a blink of an eye, or with one bad decision, that self image is destroyed, bringing us lower than we were, before we even did any building at all. this is the part of life we all dread, that part of life that we all slip on the thin ice around us and then fall through the cracks of the journey, leaving us submerged in the chilly wet water, then as we go into damage mode and try to warm up and dry ourselves off from the fall, as all those around us then perceive us in a very different light.

This journey through life has many decisions for each of us, decisions that can weaken us, or make us stronger as we move forward throughout this journey. Without common sense these decisions can and will bring us down, especially if we don’t think through the decision, before we take action on the decision. These decisions should never take control of us, nor should they ever be our destiny either. We should be the master of our own destiny and by doing that, we should always think through the decision, before we take the action of the decision. The best way to be able to take control of our destiny is, to never lose sight of our common sense, never bury that common sense so deep within, that we then forget that it is within us. This journey through life really doesn’t have to be that hard, but it is we who make it hard, when we make bad decisions, because we didn’t use our common sense, nor did we think through the decision, before we acted on the decision.

” Common sense isn’t too common within this society, only because each one of us is responsible for that”

” We have to live with whatever decisions we make, so why not think through the decision and make the most of every decision”

” To perceive what we see, is not truly of what we are looking at”

” The thin ice of this journey is only from the bad decisions we make for not thinking through the decision before we take action”

Hate belongs no where within this journey we all walk

” Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you or insult you, denounce your name as evil, on account of the son of man. Behold your reward will be great in Heaven”.

***LK 6:22, 23b***

The son of man or otherwise known as Jesus Christ, when Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he never did so out of hate, he never even acted as if there was even any hatred as part of him, Jesus treated us all as equals and yes there are no two of us alike, so tell me who you are and I am welcoming you with open arms.

As calm and as beautiful as this picture is within Nature, is all that we could ever imagine of what to expect within Heaven. First we all have to drop all the hate, as this is what just may stop us from truly meeting Jesus within the beauty of Heaven. Jesus showed zero hate of anybody while he walked his journey here with us, hate comes from right here with us, as we are the ones that developed this hatred that is among us today. Socialism breeds hatred and the dividing of each one of us, against each other, even while the love of Jesus Christ is within the hearts and souls within us.

Hatred takes a lot of work everyday from each of us, as love is very natural and within us all and takes zero effort to spread it with all who is around us. Why this hatred has spread among us today, I really have no answer for this, because this is not truly of who we are and it is not of what Jesus taught us along his journey with us. I get the fact that we are all very diverse of each other, but this diversity should never be of what divides us so, we are all very unique to each other, which when we bring forward our uniqueness, then we can move forward better and stronger, out of the love of Jesus, with zero hatred anywhere along our paths.

When those among us call us names, hate on us, or simply exclude and insult us, only means one thing of those who do this, which is the fact that these Individuals have zero self esteem of themselves and have zero belief or faith in Jesus Christ our savior. If only these Individuals could have any faith in Jesus Christ, then there could be hope for us all as we walk our paths of this journey through life, so we all can be in the peace of God, with nothing but true happiness at every turn of the journey.

The love of God within us all will warm us so,

The belief and faith in Jesus will give us much hope,

As we all search for the entrance of the pearly gates to Heaven,

Let us forever end the hate, to share the love that is within us all.

” Hate is the ugliness that surrounds us today, love will always turn the ugliness into great beauty”

” Socialism is nothing but hatred and division and is truly of who we are not”

” Love is within us all with great beauty and warmth as through love there will never be any hatred”

Be careful what you wish for

a group of people standing in front of a sign: Ocasio-Cortez forced to clarify Green New Deal details after rollout

” Change is good when done correctly, new ideas with the change can be a great combination, but when the ideas are so far fetched, makes for more chaos, corruption and ugliness”

I am sorry but this woman scares the heck out of me, with her far left Socialist ways and whacked out ideas, I mean really you simply can not take this woman too serious. This woman was voted into Congress by the state of New York, now I do not know the who voted for her, so I will just say, New York is responsible for any damage this woman does, while she serves her term in the 116th Congress.

Ms. Cortez has this new green deal, that basically has me saying………WOW!!! Eliminating air travel, guess work around a Cow’s flatulence and economic security for those not willing to work? These are the very Socialistic ideas that scare the crap out of me and it should you as well. Socialism never works and if you look into the past, like at the old USSR and even the present, with what’s happening in Venezuela, You can clearly see the corruption, the anger and the ugliness of which Socialism brings.

” Be careful of what you wish for”, yes this sounds cliche, but when we are a country in dire need of true change, we sometimes over look the fact that, when we try to send a message to the ones already serving as our so called leaders, we don’t truly look deeply into what we see, in order to truly vote in the right Candidate, that has our best interest, within their minds, instead they think they can make a name for themselves, for pushing forward something that makes completely no sense at all.

There are plenty more within the walls of Washington DC that just don’t get it, some are newly appointed and some have been there a while, who should be gone and one of those who have over stayed his welcome is, Congressman Markey, who is in this picture to the right. He has also gone to the far side of the left and has adopted these Socialistic ways for the simple common sense, that is deep within us all, not too mention……… I can’t stand the way he speaks, like he is talking down to us and he has all the power?

Now here is a stat that we all over look when we go into the voting booth, the fact that some within the walls of Washington DC, go in with little or no money, but when they leave they all of a sudden, have become multi millionaires? They do this on not just our watch, but also on our dime and they do not even care, as they are only thinking of themselves, with not even an after thought of you and I. The facts are the facts and it is time we all hold them accountable for their actions. The one point to make in all this is, all our Politicians are Lawyers, who think nothing at switching around some words, to what they think of as, justifying what they are doing.

Getting voted in to an office within the walls of Washington DC, should never be about making it a career, as now they are more focused on the power for themselves, instead of actually working for the American people and making this journey through life, better and stronger for all, as we all walk in the peace and happiness of Jesus Christ.

” Facts are the facts and actions will always speak louder than any spoken word”

” The spoken word can be twisted to fit into any narrative, but actions you own and are held accountable”

” True change is never forced, as it is always natural with zero pain of any kind, to trip you up along your path”

Drama versus Common Sense

” With Drama a society will look in chaos like these washed up tree’s, with Common Sense a society will be as beautiful as this sunset”

***BowlingChef***

Drama is not of who we truly are, drama is brought on by a few who do nothing but stir the pot, to make the rest of our lives seem worthless and out of whack, just so those few can earn a buck on our pain. The problem lies with those of us who get caught up in the drama, as we get blinded to the point we can not see anyway out. This is what the Media tries hard to do, so we then buy their publications and they get rich from our stupidity. There is no media out there that does not have this mentality, even though some may try to hide it just to keep us hanging on their every word, then strip us of not just our hard earned money, but of our dignity as well.

Common Sense is something that is deep within each of us, just that through the drama it becomes lost from all our everyday lives. When we release the Common Sense from within, then as we walk our paths through this journey of life, it will then become as beautiful as all the different sunsets we may see within our lives. Common Sense is far from common within this society, only because we are all lost within the clouds of our judgments, instead of treating each other with respect and dignity, we chose to treat each other with disrespect, only because we simply don’t look at the ramifications of our actions and don’t think before we react. It is so much easier to use the Common Sense within, than it is too build any kind of drama around us, but because the drama is all around us, we then get caught up in it, without even taking a breathe and realizing of what we are doing.

All the media outlets out there today, use this drama to suck us in, as they try to control each one of us. Some of these outlets will use more fiction than truth, only because it plays right into their agendas, it plays right into the building of the drama all around us, to which we then think we have no control to any of this, but on the contrary…………. We do have all the control and all we have to do is, stop listening or reading their content, stop buying their publications, for when they feel the lighter bottom lines of their publications, then they have no choice but to change their ways, or quite simply………….. cease to exist within this society we are all within.

The beauty of Mother Nature isn’t just out there in nature for us to visit, that same beauty is within each one of us, just that through the drama, we forget to reach down deep and let it show. With the beauty within us is also the love of Jesus within us, it is this love that brings us peace and happiness, the love like the common sense when we keep it hidden deep within, we will then only see chaos and ugliness around us and then we become lost within the clouds of our judgments, we let the drama take control of who we are, instead of letting the love and common sense out, so we all than can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve and as Jesus taught us, when he came to us and walked his journey here with us.

” Drama is not natural as common sense is within us all and as natural as mother natures beauty”

” The true beauty is not just out there within mother nature, it is within each one of us as well”

” The drama of the media can be changed by each of us and by no means does it have to control who we are either”

Leave the hatred in the rear view mirror

” Through hatred we will always be checking the rear view mirror”

***BowlingChef***

Hatred is Satan taking over control of who we are, when we control of who we truly are, this is how we accept and recognize Jesus Christ within our hearts and souls. Nothing ever came out of hatred, except maybe ugliness like we see around us today. To look at what hatred does, all we need to do is, look back within the history of Mankind, to a point known as the Holocaust, this is what hatred does and nothing good ever comes out of hatred, not too mention the fact that some of us think that, Socialism is the best thing since the invention of the car? I got a news flash for you, just look at what Socialism has done to the country of Venezuela. Okay maybe some think it will never happen here in America? I got another news flash, Socialism is all about a one person rule, with that same person controlling all that you do, so unless we the people keep aware of whats happening, yes then it will happen here, whether you like it or not. Socialism is full of hatred and hatred is not truly of who we are. let’s learn from our history and leave the hatred behind, so we can move forward better and stronger within the peace of Jesus Christ.

Hatred comes too us in many ways, but hatred within sports has you never being able to either play or watch the sport you love. There is another Superbowl upon us, for those who may not know, a Superbowl is the last football game of the season, with the winner being the champion of that season. Over the last twenty years, there are the New England Patriots, with a quarterback names Tom Brady and a head coach Bill Belichek, who will be in their ninth Superbowl together, which is a record for both coach and quarterback of the same team, but as those who will hate on this team, will only achieve one thing for you and that is, the straight up fact that you will never enjoy this game for what it truly is and that is, it is just a game that an athlete not just plays, but truly gets to play the game they love. Anybody that says they don’t like winning, is only fooling themselves. Anybody that says they hate Tom or the Patriots, don’t truly know what the game of football is. Football is a game of strategy that is hugely all about being competitive, Tom is as competitive as they come, maybe just a bit more than another, but that is no reason to hate on him. My theory to all you hater’s is, ” You want to be a champion like Tom, then step up to the plate and beat a true champion”.

Hatred has never been good or kind to any of us, it is pure Evil from Satan, that does nothing but turns us all against each other at every turn. When we work together as God wanted us to, then we will all feel that warm feeling of love within ourselves, which is the love of Jesus Christ that is always within our hearts and souls, just that through this hatred, we don’t give ourselves a chance to truly feel the warmth, as we push it so deep within, that it becomes non existent, without any of us giving it a thought, or even acknowledging it’s existence. The love of Jesus Christ is the most beautiful thing we will ever feel and know, all we need to do is, truly feel and acknowledge it, so we all can move forward without looking in the rear view mirror and walking this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

” Hatred is ugly, as love is beautiful just like the beauty within this picture”

” Hatred will have us moving backwards, as love will always have us move forward with each step”

” Football is a game of strategy with the best strategy on that day winning the game”

Rest for the Weary

” Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

When we all struggle in our daily grinds and become Weary, we grab a cup of coffee, maybe a power nap to energize us, sometimes even a weekend away, but these things are just temporary for our outer bodies, what Jesus Christ offers us is, rest for our souls and we just have to come to him in order to receive the true rest we deserve.

When Jesus gives us rest, he is truly giving us peace and contentment within our souls, so we than can breathe easier, breathe in the quality air around us, as we breathe deeply, which is totally relaxing the mind, body and soul. When Jesus gives us the ultimate rest, he is giving us the confidence we need, to escape the frustration and the chaos of the World around us. Rest in him and don’t worry about what lies ahead, as Jesus Christ has already taken care of the tomorrow for us.

The forty day journey of Lent is right around the corner, a time where Jesus walked his journey sacrificing for each of us and now, as we walk through these forty days, we to need to sacrifice a piece of us, so we than can become one with Jesus, as he helps us by giving us our ultimate rest. This Lenten journey we sacrifice, will help us flush all the bad from our mind, bodies and souls, so we than can be left with good, which will allow us to breathe deeply the love of Jesus and totally relax, to get the true rest we deserve.

Sometimes as we walk through our daily grinds, we think we are getting rest and sleep, but all we are doing is closing our eyes, while the thoughts of the day still flood our heads with negativity, this negativity keeps us from truly falling asleep, as the negativity consumes us, it then controls every fiber of our being and without the faith in Jesus, we then will never be able to come to him, as we then will give up trying to come to him, so we can have hope and truly be at rest within our souls. When our souls are at rest and we can feel the love of Jesus within us, this is when all the chaos of the world leaves us, this is when we breathe deeply all the beauty around us, this is when we all can be totally at peace, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Rest for the weary is more than just closing your eyes, it’s coming to Jesus so he can clear our souls of all the chaos of the world”

” The daily grind can and will consume us with the chaos and the negativity of the world”

” The coffee, the power nap, or even the weekend away are just a temporary fix, as Jesus fixes us permanently throughout this journey”

” The forty day journey of Lent is the time for us to sacrifice, as Jesus did for us”
