The gates within the fires in Hell to the eternal salvation of peace within Heaven

” There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me”

*** Mk 9:39b***

 

We all walk through this journey of life, the same journey that Jesus walked, when he came to us. Jesus showed us of just how to walk this journey in peace and love, all the ugliness and hatred comes from we the people getting away from our weekly Sunday gatherings, within the walls of the house of God. Without the chance to speak quietly with God, in a setting of peace and joy, it then opens us up to the temptation of the fires of hell, which within this Society and all the ugliness and hatred that surrounds us now, simply proves further that, there are many that have given into that temptation, instead of truly accepting the peace and love of God within us.

Now you don’t always have to enter the house of God and many of us have found other ways to chat with God in their own ways, seeking not only his advice, but to keep the feeling of God’s love alive and strong deep within their hearts and souls. As when we do enter the house of God, we do so with respect, just as though we expect others to enter within our homes showing respect as well. The weekly gathering within the house of God, is us going to church, to not just attend a mass, but take part in the Lord’s prayer, the Lords feast and excepting the blood and body, of his son Jesus Christ, within ourselves, to love and share with all those around us.

It is so easy to simply blend in and get caught up within all the ugliness and hatred around us, the hard part is to except and truly feel the love of God within us, only because we in this society don’t want to be labeled or looked at as, different or a freak, because we then let everything around us affect us in a negative way, staying positive in this ugly society may seem hard, but it is a lot easier than we let on to, The biggest thing attending a mass within the house of God gives us is, keeping the faith in God alive within our souls, so we than can keep alive all hope, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Going to mass each week gives us a chance to get back touch with who we truly are, the love, faith and hope, not too mention the accepting of the blood and body of Jesus Christ deep within our hearts and souls. When you receive the body of Christ at communion, you don’t just chew it and swallow it, you let it melt in your mouth, as it then gets absorbed deep into your heart and soul, which then journey’s deeply within your whole being.

When we are all born within this society, we become baptized within the house of God, later we then make our first communions within God’s house, then still later we make our confirmations also within God’s house, we allow so much to happen to us within the walls of the house of God, but yet we still walk away from the house and for some, never to return? The house of God is everything of who we truly are, all the other crap only comes to take us away from who we are and forces us to become someone for who we truly are not.

The house of God keeps us in control of who we truly are, as we strive for the eternal peace, the faith and the love, so we then can always have hope in all we do, as we get to the true path of righteousness within this journey, which then will help us keep the fires of hell and the temptation to succumb to all the ugliness that may try to over come us, throughout this journey of life.

 

” The house of God is so much of who we truly are, but yet we walk away from it like it never existed”

” The house of God brings us love and peace, as the fires of hell brings us temptation and ugliness full of hate and chaos”

” Jesus died on the cross for the salvation of us all, but yet we repay him with the walking away from the house of his father”

Frozen in Time

” If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”

John 1:9

 

” create in me a clean heart o’ God and renew a steadfast spirit within me”

Psalm 51:10

 

Looks like a sheen of ice covering the rock in the middle of the picture, it’s just water frozen in time, as the camera snaps the shot at the perfect time. Just as this mountain stream flows peacefully down the mountain, we to can walk our paths of this journey in peace, when we truly believe and have faith in God, as he forgives us of our sins, so we can then forgive ourselves, to keep moving forward throughout this journey.

The mountain stream is more than water flowing down the mountain, it is a source to quench the thirst of all that is around it, The life of the stream is  of multi purpose, just like if we take a dresser we store clothes in and turn it into a desk for our home office. Everything has a purpose throughout this journey, just that we all have to find just what the purpose is, so we than can flow as peaceful as the stream down the mountain.

When we come back to the Lord, all we really have to do is, truly feel him within our hearts, so the warmth we feel passing through the heart, isn’t just our blood, but the blood of Christ his son, flowing through our hearts, throughout our bodies, filling us with his love, so we than can share that love with each other, while we all walk our paths of this journey, in the peace of God, just like the stream flowing down the mountain.

When you confess to God your sins, you are then wiping clean your slate, as God forgives you moving forward. When the slate is wiped clean, it is like starting over within a new life. When God forgives you, there is no trace of who you used to be, as now through God, you can truly be of who you truly are, so you now can walk your path with confidence and walk this journey in the peace and happiness, you so deserve. When we truly be who we are, keep in touch with our true feelings of love and empathy, there is really no room for any other crap to flow around us, as those obstructions come before us, we will always have the confidence to flow over them, instead of being stuck behind, or being hurt deeply when we fall over them. God is always the common denominator of all the good within this journey and when we don’t have that denominator, is when we get lost within this journey, which then we become confused with much doubt and struggle with different numerators, truly being of who we are not.

 

” Frozen in time is when we are being truly of who we are not, flowing like the stream down the mountain is the cleanse of the clean slate”

” The blood that flows through our heart, does more than give us life, it is the blood of Christ flowing through our bodies with the warmth of  his love, so we than can share with all that is around us”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Working hard and moving up

” The best things in life are free, the air we breathe, the stars at night, the wonder of Human love, but the greatest gift of all is our salvation, purchased for us by Jesus Christ………….. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift”

2 Corinthians 9:15

 

Within today’s society of fast pace and full of technology that has made life easy for us all, we have also become lazy with our work ethnic, where we want the world to cater to us, but we do not want to work for what we want? Just like when we take a trek up a mountain, there comes work to get to our destination of the summit at the top of the mountain, yes you have to climb up hill and a lot of the up hills are very steep, as you climb quickly in elevation to get to the summit. Now to achieve the reward of the beauty and the great scenery at the summit, you first have to put in the work of climbing up a trail for which you trek.

Now I am not saying that all of us have lost that hard work ethnic that has made this country great, just that it is becoming instinct and needs to be fixed before it becomes lost for ever.  A good work ethnic is one that, when you start a job within a company, you are not afraid or not ashamed to start at the ground floor and work hard while you climb the ladder of success within that company, as you climb the ladder within that company, also comes the great rewards of pay raises, that simply shows you that, you are somebody of which others do notice your hard work ethnic within the job you do, not too mention of what it does to your spiritual being deep within your soul. This spiritual being is part of our DNA, our make up of who we truly are, this is what makes our self esteem grow, as we then feel good of ourselves, moving forward along the path we chose, through this journey of life.

We all want the toys of life, the material things for which we consume along this journey, but being lazy and not working a job, because we simply don’t like the job, will never have us achieve any success, so we than can buy whatever material item we wish to buy. Bouncing around from job to job, is no way to develop a good strong work ethnic, never mind of not only building a great foundation in your work life.

With a great work life and the starting on the ground floor of your life, is what completes us as a Human Being, we respect all the things around us more as we grow into this world, that little child within us grows better and stronger as well, which then has us on the exterior growing with a strong self esteem. Never think of your job as “work”, only work hard at what you do, so you than can move up the rungs of the ladder known as success, as you not only feel great inside, but it shows on the outside with your true actions, of who you truly are.

Starting out on the ground floor of life, or within our jobs is not a bad thing, nor should it be frowned upon, as it only builds strength, character and helps us grow inside and out, with that little child that is within us all, growing stronger and healthy year after year, as we walk this journey through life. In this country we have what we call the ” American Dream”? This is nothing more than all of us working very hard to achieve great success and when we achieve this great success, we then not only build a strong foundation and grow strong roots, we then accumulate the material things within this society. now sometimes with success we forget of who we truly are? we forget of that little child deep within our souls, which not only leads us to a little child with no true direction,  it will also lead us into a lifestyle of negativity, weakness and laziness, which then makes us vulnerable to all the ugliness we see around us today. With strength come happiness and with happiness comes peace for us all, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” With strength comes happiness and with happiness comes peace”

” We all want great success along this journey, we also have to work hard to achieve this peace and happiness”

” Work ethnic is within each of us, just that some have refused to unleash the hard work part of the ethnic”

” Work ethnic helps us grow stronger while we greatly respect all that is around us”

 

 

 

 

 

 

A formula for Peace………..

” 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”

Mark 7;21;22

 

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”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stay in Tune with the trail

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” You shall surround me with songs of deliverance”

Psalm 32:7

 

Through hope there will always be faith, there are many signs by God as we walk our paths of this journey, Sometimes we feel weary and worn out, we become desperate for things to change, through these times we simply need to ask God of where we have become so out of tune? God will always be faithful to you, giving you much hope moving forward along your path of this journey through life.

The journey of any trail for which we walk, very much calls for us to be in tune with that trail and as we switch to a different trail along this journey, we then become out of tune leaving us to skipping the beat and missing out on truly walking a finely tuned trail. Just as an out of tune musical instrument doesn’t play as smoothly as a tuned one, we also walk this journey  not truly feeling the heart beat of ourselves and what’s around us, as we then can’t find the tune of, faith in ourselves and
God, with no hope moving forward along this journey of life.

The tune of the trail will never be heard with your ears, it can only be felt from deep within your soul, as you become one with your surroundings, as we then sync up to the blue tooth of life, otherwise known as God. God our Heavenly Father is the Conductor for all the sounds of all the tunes within the Orchestra of life. When we become out of tune, we lose all faith and hope, this is when we need to sync up with life’s blue tooth, which is the power of prayer and the direct line to God himself. He may not answer us directly, but he will always put up the signs for us to see and all we need to do is, look deeply into what we see, so we than can become in tune with all our surroundings, along the path we walk, through this journey of life.

 

” The songs of silence is the power of prayer, keeping us in tune with all that is around us”

” Just like with any song and it’s tune, we to become out of tune leaving us out of sync with the blue tooth of reality”

” You may never hear the tune of the trail before you, but you can truly feel it deep within your soul”

” The WiFi of life connects the blue tooth of reality to God, so he can keep us all in tune with the trail through the power of prayer”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Relax… Let go… trust the flow within the journey

 

 

 

 

We within this Society get so caught up in the now, that we then forget to just simply trust our instincts, trust our guts, we get so wound up that we never actually let ourselves truly relax, as we totally need in order to be free of all unwanted stress. Just as this Kayak is flowing within the wind and the waves bumping it from side to side, The driver of this Kayak and the Kayak itself, are one in the same, totally entrusting of the wind and the waves.

Starting from way back in the beginning of Mankind, there was Adam and Eve, as they walked the land with all the fruits, they were not supposed to eat from the apple tree, but one day Eve enticed Adam and the rest is history, as the flood gates opened, that we now know as Sin. God entrusted them to not eat from the apple tree, but they could not resist and now from their actions, they have to own up and live with their actions moving forward. Just because you have made a bad choice, or maybe even a costly mistake, it is not the end of the World, God will forgive you totally for your mistakes or your sins, you simply just have to, own up, accept responsibility of your actions to move forward and not backwards.

We all throughout this journey of life have created many sins and made many mistakes, we are not perfect, but when we totally have complete faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, There is no sin large enough nor any mistake complicated enough, that will detour us, from walking our paths through this journey of life. This journey is only of what you make it and will be either hard or easy, the choice is yours to make, just as it is also your choice to not show remorse, for any of your mistakes or sins. This journey has many twists and turns, but in no way should you be restricted from making any choices and when the mistakes come in, don’t try to hide them, as this is how we learn and move forward, to be better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

When we truly relax and let go of all the crap that may weigh us down, we will totally find that we can totally trust in ourselves, trust in Jesus Christ, which now we to can flow, very much like the Kayak within the water. Through Prayer we have learned to trust and have faith in Jesus Christ and with this faith, it will always give us hope in all we do as well. So yes Sin and mistakes will come to us, but when we totally accept them as such, take responsibility for our actions no matter how big or small, while we keep the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, so we than can have the hope to move forward throughout this journey and while we, walk in true peace and happiness always.

 

” Relax, trust, let go, so you can flow as smooth as the water flows down the stream”

” Sin and mistakes are par for the course along this journey, it’s what helps us learn and move forward better and stronger”

” Jesus Christ will always forgive us us for our sins and our wrongs, but first we have to forgive ourselves to receive his blessings and forgiveness”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Road less traveled

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The road less traveled or maybe the lonely road? Either way it is a road with zero traffic and zero drama within this journey through life. The road in this picture is as rural as rural can get, where the biggest thing to worry about is, watching out for the wild life, that may come to the road to cross to the other side. Where as all the roads in the cities you have to worry more on, watching the other driver, to not slam into you. Driving these lonely roads will have you truly see the true beauty around you, look deeply into what you see, as what you will see, just may be very different from what you are used to seeing.

The one thing we have gotten away from in this Society is, to truly go out and explore what is around you, go out and travel these lonely roads, see everything that is around you and not just, what is on our usual route or path. Okay true these roads do get driven on from time to time, but with all the busy lifestyles and some who may be afraid, to venture away from their comfort zones, these roads become so lonely that the wildlife will walk them, with no fear of being hit very often.

Just like these lonely roads, we to can become lonely or isolated for many reasons throughout our journey, the difference between the roads and us is, we are a living breathing thing the road is not. We have feelings deep within us, the road just lies there waiting for its next traveler. When our feelings get hurt, we hurt real pain, which then has us hiding within ourselves and isolating ourselves from all that is around us. Even as the road gets driven on, with no feelings the road still lays there as if nothing is there. The road less traveled is not really a lonely road, where when we are lonely or isolated with no one or thing around, now we can hurt real pain from our feelings, but when we get hurt more than we like, now we have to worry about something totally different and that is, numbing our feelings deep within us, where now we can become like the road and feel nothing with no pain.

Being lonely and isolated for us, is totally different than that of the road. Way too often we get lost within the loneliness and lose our way, we bury our true feelings deep within, as to not become hurt with real pain, when we do this we then, become someone for who we truly are not, so we can try to look as normal as normal can be. Being lonely and isolated will come with a price, but driving on the road less traveled and exploring, or truly seeing the beauty all around you is priceless, there is a huge difference between the two, which you will never see, unless you look deeply into what you see. We all will think we feel lonely and isolated, but we will never feel anything as our true feelings have been buried so deep that, we have numbed ourselves to all that is around us, which now has us just wandering , instead of walking our paths through this journey of life, to be better and stronger.

 

” Is the road really lonely or is it just lieing there as still as still can be”

” To go out and explore means to truly get out of your comfort zone and see new things”

” Feelings are deep within us all, even at the times when we numb ourselves from these feelings to escape the pain and hurt.
