The true light of Salvation

” Whoever confesses that Jesus is the son of God, God abides in him”

John 4:15

” The light of the Gospell of the Glory of Christ, who is the image of God”

Corinthians 4:4

We as believer’s, will sometimes grow casual toward the cross, we become so clouded within our judgments, that we then over look the fact that, we are the ones who should of beared the shame of the cross and suffered the wrath of God. We also with our actions away from the house of the Lord, have let all the ugliness consume us greatly, as now we go from true believers, to non believers and trying to move forward through all the pain and hurt. God will be there no matter what, we just need to acknowledge and regain the belief, so we can get back the true faith, as all the hope will follow as well. God will always forgive us, as we stay true to who we are and keep strong the faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, he will rekindle the fire within, for sharing the Gospell with each other.

We will suffer through much throughout this journey of life, the suffering brings great pain and hurt, through the suffering we will be shamed in many ways as well, this shame can and will control every fiber of who we are if we let it, but, we should never fear the shame and face it head on, I know it is easier said then done, but when we do that, then the pain from the shame will not last, and as we stay true to who we are, stay true to the belief in God, he will forgive us and protect us as we walk our paths, he will guide us with the many signs he sends us, toward the path of righteousness, so the darkness from the shame, will soon turn into the bright light of that path, then we can truly move forward in strength, peace and happiness always.

The power of prayer does work, we just have to truly believe in Jesus Christ, as well as ourselves, so the prayers can work their magic. Sometimes when we pray, it seems like nothing is happening? I get that in this society we want everything now? But within the spiritual world, and within the true faith of Jesus Christ, if we do not believe we will never see the signs he sends us, which then leaves us in the purgatory of the prayers, which then brings us to the side of non belief, as now it feels like the prayers are not being answered? They are being answered, we just need to keep to the belief in Jesus and ourselves, so we can see the signs, as we now can keep moving forward, better and stronger.

Sometimes we will have these moments in time we can not explain, these kind of Ah! Ha! type moments, that will send a quiver down your spine and as you get this feeling of warmth travel throughout your body. It is these moments we need to pay close attention to and not discard them with the daily trash, this is the power of the Holy Spirit within us, trying to get us to see those signs that Jesus laid out for us to see from the prayers we send him. I know that within this society that, if you talk of these kind of moments, you are then looked at by others as a ” Quack”? But who cares what they think, this is your path and journey to walk, not theirs, so you need to pay attentiion to those moments in time, keep the true faith in Jesus and yourself, so you can see those signs, fix what you need to fix, as you keep moving forward without looking back. Yes it is okay to glance back to see where you went wrong and fix that, but a glance is not a look, as a look, you then can get stuck back there, in the what if’s, then the what may be”s, may never happen?

The History by some are trying to be taken from us, we need the history of our past, so we can then move forward even better. It is in the history’s of our pasts, that help us to keep moving forward, when the history of anything gets taken from us, then we have nothing to glance back at, to be better and stronger moving forward. Now I get the fact that there will be good and there will be evil within this journey, there are also good/evil within our paths as well, and even further, there is good and bad within our professions we choose as well. With that said, you have your good teacher’s as well as you have your bad teacher’s, but it is the Teacher’s Union’s that are the real serious problem among us today, these are the ones that control all the Teacher’s whether they are good or bad? The unions set all the curriculums that the Teacher’s teach, as right now, they are teaching our children all the wrong things. It is time for the Parent’s to step in and right this wrong, as it is their children they are corrupting into their sick twisted agendas. They do not want to teach the real history’s of our past, only a watered down version, that they want you to know, so they can keep all the power they have.

This journey through life really does not have to be that hard, and when we walk our paths correctly, this journey really isn’t hard, true maybe it does seem to fly by? But if it does not seem to go by fast, then that should be a red flag, that maybe you are doing something wrong? Jesus showed us the correct way of walking this journey, by staying true to who you are, feeling his love within our hearts, then sharing that love with each other, putting our trust in the right places, like in the faith of God, as we visit his house on Sunday’s, when we truly trust in the Lord, then the faith in him and ourselves, will bring us great hope. We have become so consumed in all the ugliness around for way too long, the time is now, to get back to the true faith in Jesus Christ, which will give us the hope to get away from the ugliness and flourish once again along our paths of this journey through life.

It is said that those who do harm to others, will meet their maker’s. Well the same can be said for all of us as well, cause this journey will end for each of us at some point, so when we get to those ” Pearly Gates” of Heaven, that is when we all meet our maker. This is when it gets to be determined whether or not you walked this journey correctly, or how you treated others along your path? Whether or not you serve your time here on this journey, you will serve your time in Heaven, now whether you spend it in Heaven, or whether you spend it in Purgatory? That all depends on you yourself and how you walked your path, through this journey of life? See, nobody really thinks of that today, simply because in this society of ugliness, we have taken far to for granted, of the faith and love that Jesus Christ has for us all. A lot do not even walk through the doors of the Lord anymore, that says a lot without even saying a word. If you can not walk through the doors of God, then how can you have true faith in Jesus, better yet, how can you have true faith in yourself? I get that some will pray and have true faith in their own privacy, that’s all good, if you truly walk your paths with that same faith. Now very true that even some who do walk into the house of God, once they leave those doors, they then forget what they have heard, that is even worse, as now you have disrespected God in the worst possible way known to man and yes, you will meet him at the gates of Heaven one day.

This Ah! Ha! moment may not happen all to often, but when it does, we need to pay attention with our hearts and souls, so when Jesus sends us the signs, we will see them and let him guide us to the true path of righteousness, that will bring us into the light, away from the darkness, so we can forget about all the ugliness, get back to truly of who we are, with the faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, as we keep moving forward along our paths, through this journey of life. That special moment that will come, is the true magic of Jesus and when we truly feel it, the affects are truly amazing, not only does your body become warm, not only does your spine quiver, but you also become in touch with your emotions as well, which is something that a lot of us do not feel anymore. Maybe we do? But because of the ugliness we do not acknowledge when it happens, we just brush it off as, what is this? Am I coming down with a cold? Jesus Christ is there for us all, we just need to acknowledge him, so we can truly feel his blood traveling through our hearts, so the true joy can warm our souls, as we all walk our paths in his peace and happiness, throughout this journey we all walk. Yes this journey will end at some point and we all will meet our maker at the gates of Heaven, so lets walk correctly, so we do not go within Purgatory, to stay in limbo, not knowing anything of the future, let alone, laying in waste, to further stinking up the ground for where we lay.

” The true light of Jesus Christ is within our hearts, as the light of the Holy Spirit is within our souls, so when we feel that special moment that warms us and sends quivers down our spine, truly acknowledge it and let Jesus speak to you as he knows best”

” We will all meet the maker at the gates of heaven, so let that meeting go perfectly, as we walk our paths correctly throughout this journey of life”

The Miracles of life will always be there within us

” So he went in and said to them, ” Why this commotion and weeping”? The child is not dead but asleep”

Mk 5:39

It is said that everything happens for a reason? It is just that we lost our way to finding that reason, so we can move forward, better and stronger along this journey through life. We all go through many events throughout this journey, that will alter the way we walk our paths, With the disruption of these events, we then get lost in the reasons, while we also lose the faith in ourselves, as well as the faith in Jesus Christ. This journey will throw many curve balls at us, it will also test us in many ways as well, but when we stay true to who we are, keep the faith in ourselves, as well as Jesus Christ, there will be no curveball, that we can not hit and make it on base safely, on the playing field of this journey through life.

With the last couple of years we all have gone through, may this be a sign from Jesus to us all, showing all of us that, he is here for us all, he will guide us back to the light of the path of righteousness, all we need to do is, keep the faith in ourselves and in him, so we then can walk through the dark clouds of the storm, to get into the bright lights of God, as we all move forward into the peace and serenity, that the path of righteousness holds for us all.

One of the biggest miracles of this journey is, we all take so for granted that each day we wake to a new day. Just like the sun rises to a new day over the horizon, we rise to the light of a new day. such a peaceful picture this is, of the sun rising to shine on a new day, the quietness of the crack of dawn, only to be interrupted by the beautiful sounds of the birds, singing their morning tunes. As everything wakes to the new light, so do we wake, only we take it for granted, simply because we have to get ready for the day within our jobs. Now some may be within their dream job? Do they really exist? Or do we just lie to ourselves to make it seem like a dream? Nonetheless, we still wake so we can earn the living, which helps us walk our paths, as peacefully as we can. Everything happens for a reason, it is on us to find that reason, so we can fix what we need to fix, stay true to who we are, then keep moving forward along our paths, of this journey through life.

The Eagle sits atop the tree and keeps an eye on all that is below. Jesus also watches all of us from high above and at the right side of his father. He sends us the needed signs, just that when we lose the faith in him, we never truly see these signs. Jesus is always watching us, his blood as it warms our souls runs through our hearts with his love, when we stay true to our feelings, we will feel his warmth and love within us, as we then will, share this love with each other. But as we lose all faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, now our hearts turn cold, and we bury our true selves so deep within, that we now become someone for who we truly are not. This is when Satan shows up and tempts us with many temptations, that bring much ugliness, pain, and hurt to us all. There will always be good and evil, only if we stay true to who we are, we will know that good will always win over evil. But when we are someone who we are not, then the dark clouds of the storm will never leave us, as the light of the new day becomes even further from us.

Sometimes as we walk our paths of this journey, things will happen that we can’t explain? These are the miracles that Jesus puts forth in front of us, these are the signs he sends us, so we can, with the faith in him, see the signs, as we keep moving forward along our paths. Miracles do happen, just that through the ugliness of Satan, we never see them as we should. Jesus Christ trusts us in so many ways, we also need to trust him in the same ways, but when those life events come to us, scorn us in the wrong ways, this is when we hide deep within ourselves and portray a fake self to all those around, as we try to minimize the pain and the hurt that will come to us. There is so much to this journey of life, there is so much that will come to us, that we then become lost as we walk our paths. When we become lost, we then trip on the bumps of the path, sometimes these bumps will knock us down, but if we do not get up in the correct way, we then do not walk our paths the same way, as we once did.

In the eyes of Jesus Christ, there really is no right or wrong way to walk this journey, we just need to stay true to who we are, stay true to the faith in ourselves, as well as the faith in Jesus also, so he then can send us those signs for us to see, he can give us those miracles that help guide us to the light of the path of righteousness, so as the bright light of the sun lights up the horizon each and every day, we to can wake up to the bright light of a new day, as we keep moving forward with the warmth of the blood of Jesus flowing through our hearts, his love warming our souls, as we then share that love with each other. May we all truly see and feel the miracles that Jesus puts forth along our paths, so we all can walk through this journey, in the peace and happiness, that Jesus wants for us all.

” The miracles of Jesus Christ are all around and with the true faith we can feel these miracles as we stay true to who we are”

” As the sun wakes up over the horizon and brings the light of a new day, The faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ will wake us up to a new day always”

With faith, the storm will never last

” He woke up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, ” Quiet! Be still”. The wind ceased and there was a great calm, Then he asked them, ” Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith”?”.

Mk 4:39-40

When Jesus came to us and walked his path of this journey here with us, he was so calm always, but some never wondered of his calmness, with each turn along his path. Jesus was always calm with each step along his path simply because, he had total faith in his father, the creator of all Mankind, to provide him with the right tools needed to walk with confidence, so he could walk through any storm, to get to the calmness of the light on the other side. Faith is the keyword here, and faith is something we today have lost, through all the chaos around us today.

With all the chaos around us today, the clouds of our judgments have become really thick, so thick that we can not see clearly what is right in front of us. We overlook all the little things in life, then make like everything that we do see, is only for us ourselves, without giving a thought that, what may be in front of us, is also in front of all others around us. We have become so self-centered that, not only have we lost empathy for others, we have lost all faith in ourselves, as well as everything around us. Without any kind of faith, there is no confidence, and when we have no confidence, then whatever we may do will never be easy, as we think that we are totally alone, within this journey we walk.

Jesus Christ showed us many things as he walked this journey with us, the one thing that he showed us, that today we take so for granted is, to not only have faith in ourselves, but to have total faith in him, so we to can walk through this journey with the confidence he had, plus be as calm as he was while walking with the faith in his father. Without the confidence and the faith, you can see where that is taking us, we have become so consumed with the chaos, that we do not look at the little things anymore, and we look at everything around us as bigger than life, that will bring great pain and hurt, to which we then fear everything that will come before us along our paths of this journey.

When we walk our paths of this journey as Jesus showed us, we can truly see that we all walk the same journey, just different paths. We will also see that, when we have empathy for each other, we then will help each other, without even thinking about it. When we help one another, this is where the confidence in what we do comes to us, this is how we learn from the little things, so everything else does not surprise us and bring us pain and hurt. Yes, we will go through many storms in this journey, but with the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, the storms will pass, bringing us to the other side, within the light and away from the darkness of the storm.

Sometimes the dark clouds above us will seem so thick, and seem like they will never end? This is where our faith in ourselves and in Jesus needs to be at its strongest, Without faith, we will never get to the light, we will never have any confidence, which then leads us to great pain and bitterness along the paths we walk of this journey. We then let the doubt of all things around us, which then leads us into the power of denial, that then strips us of who we truly are. Yes, the grip of denial is very powerful, and it will control every fiber of your mind, body, and soul, but when we have the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, then the doubt and the denial of the storm above us, will never last, as the dark clouds above us, become thinner and the light starts to shine through them, that then leads us to the path of righteousness, that Jesus showed through this journey.

When the dark clouds are so thick above us, and we have lost all faith, we know become all wrapped up deep within ourselves, and never put forth our hands, to give anyone around us something to hold on to, as they try to pull us from the storm that surrounds us along our path. We are so deep within ourselves, that we see nothing or no one that may be around us. As we are deep within ourselves, yes we may cry, but because we are so deep, the tears fill up all the cracks around us, and we may seem like we are drowning? The wet tears may not have a place to go away from us, only because we hold them back, which then make it seem like the waters of the storm, are violently attacking us, which make it seem like there is no end to the storm? Only when we keep the faith in ourselves, as well as Jesus Christ, do we find that the tears will flow away from us, which help us extend our hand, so the hand of another can and will, pull us from the storm and help us into the light, leaving the storm behind us, as we move forward along our path, through this journey of life.

There will be other smaller journeys within this bigger journey of life, these are the journeys that help us with our faith and our confidence, like for instance, climbing that mountain before us. Sometimes when the weather becomes bad, that has the mountain within the darkest of the clouds, it is the faith and the confidence that tells you to hike another day, but with no faith or confidence, you will proceed up the mountain, within the strongest part of the storm, that they can and will, lead you to much pain and hurt before you. Because of the lack of faith and confidence, you have then put yourself into more troubling times, which now your better judgment becomes clouded, with much doubt and denial. The mountains will always be there, so when they become socked in from the dark clouds of the storm, then hike another day, so you can be rewarded with great views of the better day, be rewarded with a clear day within the light, as the darkness of clouds, are nowhere near, making for a quiet path, through this journey of life. Each reward that comes to us will bring us not just the faith and confidence in ourselves, but the faith and confidence in Jesus Christ as well, so we all can walk through the darkness of the storm, to get to the light on the other side, which is the peace and happiness, that Jesus showed us along his journey.

” With true faith and confidence, the darkness of the storm will never last, as the light will always light up the end of the storm as we move forward”

” Without any faith or confidence, the clouds become thicker and darker as they consume us dearly, into the power of doubt and denial”

The Brevity of Life

” What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes”

James 4:14

The band named Kansas has a song out there that sums it up in the title of the song, ” Dust in the wind”. We are all just dust in the wind, that blows around as we walk our paths of this journey, we are a blade of grass that gets blown in the wind, and are just a part of the landscape around us. There is nothing here within this journey that is forever, just look at this tree, or what’s left of it after the power of lightning got a hold of it. Just like we need to do the cultivating along our paths, mother nature does the cultivating of all the landscape around us. You just do not know how long this journey will last for you, either you are here for a short time, or a bit longer, so you need to cultivate properly so this journey will bring you all the fruit, instead of the pits, of all that is around you.

We all need to face it sooner or later, face the facts that one day this journey will end for us, yes this is a sad day, but one even sadder to all those we hold dear, as now you are taken from them. Can you ever be ready for this day? Who knows, as once this journey ends, it is not like you can communicate this to those around you. All we can do while we are here is, prepare ourselves for this day, prepare our paths to the best ability we can, so those that walk behind us can keep moving forward in your honor. Some may ask, why do some need to die on this journey? Maybe simply look deep within mother nature, to see that much of nature also die off, so the future can be greener and more vibrant. With all the ugliness, hatred, and the attacking of one another, maybe this is the way of the Lord, sending us a message that we need to come together in unity or die apart from another in the division?

Grief is a part of life within this journey, when we do not grieve properly, now we open ourselves up, to a whole lot of issues as we walk our paths, It’s these issues then, that turn us into someone/something we are not. From the process of not grieving properly, this is what has us, not cultivating our paths as we should, so this journey can be full of peace and joy at every turn. The Brevity of life may be short, but life itself does not have to bring great pain either.

The grass is green and vibrant, but just don’t look at the grass, look through the grass and see all the vibrancy all around that blade of grass. Sometimes we never look around us to see what is there, we walk around with blinders on and see only what we want to see, as we totally miss what we need to see, so we can walk through our paths properly, along this journey of life. There are so many cancers throughout this journey, sometimes we let our focus become blurry of the rest of what is around us, the cancers of life, when you look deeper into the cancer, it goes a lot deeper than any disease, there are many cancers that will come to us, and many more that we never truly understand, only because we chose not to understand, only to walk around, instead of hitting it head-on.

Sometimes like within the world we live in today, we think that we are entitled to everything around us, we do not want to share anything with anybody, we take so much for granted, that we then lose sight of everything around us. We can’t have everything and we also can not take it with us, when this journey comes to a close either. So there is no real answer to any of what is going on around us today, just that we have not only lost sight of reality, even worse, we have lost sight of each other as well, which would explain all the division all around us. What is happening all around us, is not true of who we are, cause when we are who we are in the eyes of God, there is zero negativity, there is zero bitterness, this is all on us, and we need to fix our wrongs before it becomes too late, then the ride through this journey comes to an end, leaving us all with regret, for what we should have done, instead of what we failed to do. Life is full of Brevity, we need to understand totally from it, or forever be within the doubt and the regret that will keep us from walking our paths through this journey, in the peace, joy, and serenity, for which we all so deserve.

” Through Brevity comes longevity, it is time we truly understand before it becomes too late”

” We are the cultivators of our paths, like mother nature is the cultivator of all the landscape around us”

Setting a table we all share

” He said to them. This is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed for many”

MK 14:24

The Priest sets the table at the Alter, as he gets ready to share the most Holy, Body, and Blood of Christ, with us all. Jesus Christ is everywhere around us and all we need to do is, have complete faith and acknowledge his presence, then we shall feel his blood flowing through our hearts, just like the water flows over the falls and into the pool below. When at church and receiving these gifts, this is the physical way of accepting Jesus within us, the spiritual way is, us believing in him with every fiber of our being.

Jesus is everywhere around just like all the different bodies of water we see wherever we may be. No matter which way we travel along our paths, or whichever direction we go at the crossroads, there will be a body of water that we will pass by, Jesus will be with us at every step along this journey and especially when we truly believe with the faith in him as well as ourselves. When we Pray properly, this is the true communication with Jesus that he will communicate back, by giving us his signs, to follow along our paths, these signs we will see as we truly believe in him, so he can lead us to the path of righteousness and away from all the temptations of Satan himself.

With all the ugliness and the hatred we see all around us, should be a bright red flag to us all, that we need to get back to the power of Prayer, get back to sitting with the Priest as he sets the table at the Alter and gets ready to share the gifts with us all. So we then can truly feel the blood of Christ flowing through our hearts and warming our entire body with his love. Then we all can share this love with each other, as the hatred and the ugliness disappears from this journey. When we share the love of Jesus that’s within our hearts, it then becomes that much easier to walk our paths throughout this journey of life, we then will put in the work to clear the paths as we go, making for a smoother walk for all those who will be walking behind us. This world needs more good Shepard’s to lead properly, and will bring us onto the side of good, as right now we have some who say they are Shepards? Who is bringing us deeper into the darkness of evil?

Even though the days before Christ, you had the darkness of evil, just like we have this same darkness now, so very true that the darkness will always be there, as well as the light, the common denominator to all this is, ” We the People”. When you have darkness and light, just like the light of day and the dark of night, it then becomes totally on we the people and not just how we react to them, but how we put forth our actions within the dark or the light, toward each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. We all may think we are smarter than one another, we may think that attacking one another is okay? Well, you can clearly see just how this is turning out, no matter where you turn today. The problems of today clearly lie at the feet of each one of us, as with our actions, we don’t think through the ramifications of our actions moving forward. Then as we do not feel the blood of Jesus flowing through our hearts and warming our bodies, we now have lost all feelings of everything all around us.

With the true faith and belief in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, we will always feel his blood within us, then our bodies will be warm with his love, for then we can share with each other, but when our hearts are cold, we then have nothing to share and even worse, when it comes time for the journey to end, we know have run out of chances to accept the blood of Jesus within us and join him within the world of eternal salvation, which now we enter into the uncertain world of, Purgatory. Within Purgatory, we now enter into the unknown with no true direction, just like as we walked our paths of the journey, without feeling the blood of Christ within our hearts and souls, at least in this journey, we have a chance to fix what we need to fix, in the world of Purgatory, we have no clue if we will have any chances at all. So let’s set our tables at the Alter correctly, so we can truly feel the blood of Christ pass through our hearts and warm our bodies and souls with his love, as he guides us to the path of righteousness, and away from all temptation, so we can share his love with each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and joy of Jesus Christ. May we never lose sight of the signs that Jesus brings to us, so as we walk through the shadows of darkness, we will always get back to the true light of Jesus Christ.

” The body and blood of Jesus is always within us, we need to acknowledge him to truly feel his love”

” Set the table correctly everyday, to walk further each and every day throughout this journey”

The many Changes throughout this journey of life

” God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble”

Psalm 46:1

” Lord may every earthly loss serve to lead me to the cross, whatever good things come and go in this life, let the cry of my heart always be, ” God is all I need””

Billy Graham

Throughout this journey of life, there will be so many changes that will cross our paths, they will have our heads spinning, and even so much, we will then become so confused, we get lost with which direction to go. The loved ones that we lose, the friendships that get lost, these are just two of the changes we face, that will change who we are or become, there are so many other changes and very different changes from each other, that no wonder why we of this society have become so broken and confused, not too mention the fact that, we have lost who we truly are as well.

These two pictures I have here, are of the same quarry, but two different looks into the quarry. This is a slate quarry within the state of Vermont, back in a time way before ours within this society, these slate quarries were happening, and a thriving industry, settlements, and townships were created around these quarries, just so they had the labor to keep mining these quarries. Now, these quarries are not so thriving and a lot of the townships, have become Ghost towns, for us to explore as we wish. Back within this time, they did not have the technology of today, but if you explore these Ghost towns, it makes you wonder, just how they built up these towns, with many of the buildings still standing today. Those back in these times really knew how to build, and as I look at some of the buildings of today, those from that time, have built a better product than those of today. Makes you really think of, just how out of focus we have become, simply because of all the power, control, and greed.

Each society throughout this journey is supposed to be better than the last, I get that, but in so many ways, we of this society have taken so many steps backward, than we have taken forward. With all the technology at our fingertips today, but yet how dumb we have become as well, yes, we have some of the smartest minds among us, but as they step out of their labs, they then become so dumb within everyday life. We all want to either invent or be part of the next best thing so bad, that now we lose sight of all the everyday things and not just lose sight, but now we look at all those around us as, not being on the same level as each other anymore. I get that some may be more gifted than others, the IQ of some may be higher than others, but that does not mean, we are different than each other. It is totally on us the people of this society, that this great technology we have, has in some ways, knocked us backward, instead of forward.

Just like in societies of the past, not everybody had a hand in the next best thing, the problem within this society is, we get so jealous of each other for this, that now hatred for one another comes into play, and when hatred gets involved, now you add in a whole different beast, that will grab a hold of us and bring us into a world so ugly, that now we all become someone for who we are not, just to try to avoid all the pain and hurt that will come to us as well. You have leaders of countries today, that are so focused on world dominance, that they will do anything they can to get away with, just so they can achieve this. They do not care who they hurt, maim, or kill either, they want all the power, control, and greed they can get, and when they get it, then we all will suffer such great pain, that none of us will be of who we truly are anymore.

Sumer, located within Mesopotamia, was the first known society of Mankind. There have been many societies within Mankind, but we of this society, have become so out of focus lately, that we think we are the first and only society, that really matters throughout this journey of life. I have a newsflash for you, sometimes it is okay to glance back, not just to see what happened back then, but to see where we once were, so we can fix what we need to fix, in order to move forward better and stronger. Each society throughout this journey, is so very different from one another, that sometimes we need to see what they did, whether right or wrong, so we don’t fall into the same traps they fell into as they moved forward. Some of the Engineers back then, in some ways, were as smart or even smarter than the ones of today. but like all other societies throughout this journey, we all go through many changes as well, and when we do not accept and adapt, to these changes correctly, this is what makes or breaks the entire society, not to mention, the people within the society that want nothing for each other, but everything for themselves.

There were many people in each society, this society is no different than those societies in that respect, which goes to a good point, it is the people of each society and the actions they take, that will either make or break a society. Then you add into the equation of, power, control, and greed, now you have a beast so big, and so strong, that it may seem like we are doomed at whatever we do within the society. We of this society are at such a crossroad right now, we totally think that some will achieve this world dominance? Well, that is determined if we the people step up to the plate, wake up to the coffee of life, look the Bully square in the eyes, so we can put the fear of God right back into them, so they cower away like the true coward they are. You want to think or be better than the previous society? then step up to the plate, accept and adapt properly to all the changes that come our way, so we can end this great divide that divides us so much, to truly move forward and be better and stronger than the previous society. This journey through life isn’t all about me, it is about us, and how I can contribute, so we can totally be better for it, then just maybe this society in the name of God, can truly be, the best society moving forward. We have all the tools to do it, now it is on we the people, and our actions toward one another, that will determine our fate, as we move forward along our paths, through this journey of life.

” Change is something that none of us can avoid, which is why it becomes so much on how we accept and adapt to the change moving forward”

” Each society throughout this journey has had their greatness as well as their downfalls, that’s why we need to learn from the bad to be at our greatest”

Material things

” What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul”

Mark 8:36

” The Bible says, is not with money itself, but with our love of money”, ” The love of money is a root of all kinds of Evil”

1 Timothy 6:10

We of this society have become so consumed with money and of material things, that we have lost total sight of were we are truly going along this journey of life. Through our need of money, it has turned us into someone that, not even we ourselves know truly of who we are and even as we look into any mirror. The greed of everything around us, has us look at everything with the eyes of, how much does that cost? The real true beauty around has no price and is priceless when we view them from the right angle, most of the time if something has no price and cost us nothing, then because of our need of money, we then look at that item as worthless and not worth it? Then we move past that item and forget about whatever it is.

When Jesus came to us and walked his path of this journey, he did so with the clothes on his back, and looked like what we see in any city, a homeless man. Today when we see anyone living out in the streets, we look away as if they have some kind of crazy and very infectious disease? Now true some may have made that choice to live that way, but most did not, as they were forced onto the streets, not just of bad times, but for reasons that greed had taken everything from them. Because of greed, we essentially have put a price on all our lives as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Look at the Leaders of some of the other countries today, with them it is all about, power, control and greed. They value more of what can you do for me, instead of what can I do for you, greed is the root of everything Evil and if you follow the money, then you as well will be led to a path of destruction sooner or later. I get the fact we all want to be comfortable, but really just how comfortable can you be, when there is a hefty price tag, on everything you do, say, or even buy. Greed has become so powerful to all of us, gone are the days of a simple thing like Bartering, now most in this society have no clue what Bartering is because of greed, it is quite simple, when you exchange something with another for a service, with no monies exchanging hands, well then you have done the simple act of bartering, not too mention the fact that, now you have done something even greater like, you have now created a trust and a bond with another, that can and will last a lifetime.

We have fallen so deep within the bubble of greed, that now we will purchase all the material things, just so we will look more powerful than those around us, we will purchase land to build a home on, without thinking of the lives that will get disrupted, when the land gets cleared? But what we never think of when we purchase that land is, all the wildlife in that area now has to relocate. Through greed all of our judgments are thickly settled with clouds, as now we can not think clearly anymore, Plus through greed, we now only think of ourselves, with zero empathy or remorse for anything, or anyone that may be around us.

When you add in the technology like we have today, to the equation of greed, now everything has multiplied even greater, don’t get me wrong, technology can and will help us, but in a lot of ways it has hurt us to the point that, we have taken huge steps backwards instead of moving forward. For instance all th social media platforms today, when they were created they were very good and actually kept us communicating with those a far, but!!! Now we the people have turned even these platforms into our worst nightmares, and you think the creator’s of these platforms really care? They have not lost a nights sleep over it, even more, they are laughing all the way to the bank, over all our anger issues and attacks we make on their platforms.

This society is in need of a major fix, we the people have put ourselves into this, we the people need to wake up to reality, and pull ourselves out of the huge hole we dug, from the appetite of trying to achieve all the power, control and greed of each other. Jesus showed us how to walk our paths of this journey, so we can get to that path of righteousness, but with our actions within this society, is this really the way we thank him? Jesus is within all our souls and his blood warms our hearts as it flows freely throughout our bodies, but when we do not acknowledge him, then our hearts and souls become so cold, we lose all empathy for everything and everyone around us, which then lets all the greed take ahold of us and control every fiber of our being. It is never to late to fix this, Jesus will always be there for us, but only when we truly feel his love within us, truly have complete faith in him, so we than can move forward with hope, so that we can fix what is wrong, then get back to walking our paths in peace, and move forward on this journey with the joy for everything around us.

” The darkness will only last as long as we let it, then the true light will brighten our paths of this journey”

” The trees will lose their leaves in the fall and may look bare, then in the spring new life prevails with fresh leaves on all the trees”

” God created all this beauty for us all to come together, not to separate and destroy everything around us”

This Journey

” Here we spend our time, and what we see”

” What we think about matter”

Psalm 119:37

Corinthians 10:5

It is the many smaller journeys, within this bigger journey called Life, that make us up to be who we are? The Perspectives, the visions, the way we take actions from what we see, to inmplement them in our own way, this not only forms who we become, but what we tend to forget is, it forms many others around us, whether in a negative way, or a positive way.

We are all within this broken society today simply because, we in one way shape or form, have failed each other with our own actions. We have lost sight of one of the biggest conmandments that Moses, brought forth to each of us, from our Father, and the creator of all the beauty around us, ” Love Thy Neighbor”. We do not even know our neighbors anymore, let alone a simple hello in passing, we all move around like we are the creator’s? Like we own everything around us, and are entitled to everything around us? Yes God created all this for us to enjoy, but to enjoy with each other in harmony, without trying to attack and kill each other. Until the day comes that we all get back to who we truly are, we may never get back to a good and healthy society, it all starts with the actions of each one of us, as we move forward within our own journeys, of this journey thru life.

This journey through life has much beauty for us all to see, but when we keep the current actions we are taking, all this beauty will turn to ugliness all around us. Now I get the fact that each society throughout this journey will grow from one to another, but when they do grow and when they are taught the wrong things, from the wrong actions, this is where we have gone so wrong. Plus the fact that we of this society are so far removed from the time when, Jesus Christ came to us and walked this journey with us, has led us away from the house of God, and so far away that, there are some who just do not believe, or have formed their own Idealologies about the son of man. Well!!! Unlike the so-called media of today, I have a real news-flash for you, without the belief in Jesus Christ, you can not have any faith, which then leads to no hope.

Faith in anything is key to us walking our paths confidently, to be better and stronger. With faith in our selves, we then can keep moving forward, without stepping backwards into the unknown, and with that faith, we than can have great hope, that helps us to not just be who we are, but succeed in everything we set out to do, as we walk our paths of this journey. Now some in this society who have no faith in anything, will try to bring their inabilities to the rest of us? Then say that, you need to do as I say, because it is the only way? Some and because of their inabilities, will try to wreak all the power over us, so they can seem ( only to themselves), as the most powerful over all others. Then you have the ones that, just simply go with the flow, as to not bring any unwanted pain and hurt, let alone anything that takes away their comfort. People today fear so much of all ugliness and hatred out there, that they forget how to actually take a stand to it, how to look the fear in the eyes, so they can end that fear around them, so they keep to the status Quo, cause they fear more of the actions that may come to them.

We need to change our actions we take toward each other, we attack each other at every turn, this is not what Jesus taught us within his journey here, some will be Politically correct to your face, then stab you in the back when you turn from them? These actions only promote more ugliness and hatred, we need to get back to ” Love Thy Neighbor”, so we then can get back to, our true feelings and emotions, show more love and empathy of each other, then we can actually take the right steps moving forward, of how to make not only this society better and stronger, but make ourselves better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

With each little journey within this bigger journey, there is so much beauty around us, there is so much to truly see of what God created for us, the only way to truly see it is, we need to step out of our comfort zones, step out of our in actions, and get back to our true actions, get back to who we truly are, get back into the house of God, so we can truly feel the blood of Jesus Christ warm our hearts and flow freely within our bodies. When the blood of Jesus flows within us, we then will have the empathy of one another, so we than can get away from the ugliness and hatred, as we move forward within the proper changes, for us all to be better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, within the peace and joy, that Jesus showed us as he walked this journey with us.

” The many journeys within this bigger journey, are what shapes us into who we truly are”

” Change is all around us throughout this journey, it is how we accept and adapt to the change, that shapes us into who we are”

His most precious Blood

” Jesus Christ, loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood”

Revelation 1:5

” The blood of Jesus Christ, cleanses, from all sins”

1 John 1:7

Even the very wealthy J. P. Morgan had found that, he to was powerless and just as dependant as the rest of us, on the mercy of God. What we take so for granted of today, is that no matter how rocky, or how uneven the land is, it is perfectly level when we all walk together in unity, especially when we walk within the faith of Jesus Christ, so we can feel the blood of our savior passing through our hearts, and throughout our bodies.

When we walk through the doors of the house of God, we all enter equally in guilt and full of sin, we all then leave equally forgiven and free. That same blood of Jesus Christ, is the blood that cleanses us and flows freely within our hearts, leaving us within the true faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, so we all can have the hope moving forward, to achieve all we can, throughout this journey of life.

Somewhere throughout this journey, we have become separated from the love of Jesus Christ, yes he did come walk this journey with us, just that in this society, some just can not truly believe. There will be much change that will come to us all throughout this journey, this change can and will change each one of us for better or worse, it will bring much pain to us as well, but if we do not except and adapt to the change correctly, then the change will always change us for the worse, bringing a pain so deep, that we will hurt deeply, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Within the faith in Jesus Christ, he then will bring us the hope, so we can except and adapt to all the change correctly, as we move forward instead of stepping backwards into the fires of Hell. We lose sight of where we are gong, when we don’t glance back at where we have been, seen what was good and bad back then, so we than can make the necessary adjustments, fix what we need to fix, as we then move forward, without repeating what was wrong and continuing it. This is what’s wrong in todays society, as some take away the past, just to keep all the control of today. These same ones are the ones who have buried the blood of Jesus, making their hearts cold, just as Satan has transformed them.

The great outdoors and walking through nature, is the best way to not only listen and feel the hearbeat of the Earth, it is a great way to get back in touch with the love of Jesus, as he unleashes the flow of his blood, back within your heart, so you can feel the true feelings all around you. Getting back within mother nature, is getting back in touch with the faith in Jesus Christ, as well as getting back the faith in yourself, with this faith, there will always be great hope for us all moving forward, so we can prosper and grow correctly, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, to be within the peace of the Lord, and the joy we all so look for. Then when we are all on the same page, and come together in unity, we will find that there is nothing that will ever try to derail us again.

We may not see Jesus, but he is always there and will never leave us. It is we the people that, with our actions, make it like Jesus does not exist. When we lose the true faith, there will never be any hope, no matter how much we try otherwise. Jesus will send us his signs, but when we neglect to see them, this is the start of our hearts turning cold. when the warmth within our hearts goes away, this should be a red flag to us all, as this is the biggest sign Jesus sends us, so we can make the necessary changes moving forward. The signs of Jesus Christ are all around us, we just have to refocus our minds, so we can truly see these signs, as we move forward along our paths, of this journey through life, to be better and stronger, within the peace and joy of Jesus Christ, as he brings us to the path of righteousness, and cleanses us of our sins, with his own blood.

” The heart is warmed from the love of Jesus, so his blood can pass through it as well as our bodies”

” The cool carm serenity of the great outdoors, will help heal your mind, body and soul”

Victory over Sin

20200907_065549.jpg

” In all these things we are more than Conquerors through him who loved us”

Romans 8:37

” Resist the Devil and he will flee from you, draw near to God and he will draw near to you”

James 4:7-8

Thought of the day:

When Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he taught us how to be conquerors so the victory can be ours. When the blood of Jesus flows freely through our hearts, this draws us nearer to God to enjoy his protection, and we no longer need to fear the enemy.

Just as the day time sky gives way to the night sky, the good gives way to evil. The daytime may give way to the darkness for a short time, the evil can be the same, only sometimes we let it linger longer than it needs to. When we give into the temptation of Satan, the evil will then seem so strong, we get lost within the darkness. Sometimes we get caught up in the darkness around us, and with so much of it, we try to avoid it by hiding deep within ourselves. We forget that through the darkness there will always be the light of goodness. But as we hide within, we lose sight of where we are going and become lost as we walk through this journey of life.

True at times the darkness will seem stronger then anything we have seen, but the reality is, we forget that the goodness will always conquor the evil and the light will return to us all. While the darkness consumes us, sometimes other forces come into play, these forces will try to control every fiber of our being, and they will if we do nothing and let them, which is why we must never lose the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, so we all can have the hope, that we will get through the darkness, to once again be within the light of the good moving forward along this journey.

We all have this inner child within us, this child also needs to grow in a healthy way, just as we on the outside. When this inner child gets neglected, its kind of like a young child gets neglected within society, they do not grow properly, which then leads to a lot of issues later in life. When we become so troubled, we then put up these walls and let no one inside of the walls, even if that one is there to help? Once these walls go up, then we will never see any light, as the darkness goes wherever we go? This will make us all ripe for the pickings of Satan and all evil to control everything about us. The pain of this darkness becomes so painful, we will then do anything to rid ourselves from it, which means we will bury our true selves, then portray this fake self to all those around us, and as we portray this fake self, we then bury our true feelings and emotions very deep within, so that the blood of Jesus will not flow through our hearts, turning it so cold, that we feel nothing for anyone or anything around us.

Just as Jesus resisted the temptation of Satan, we to can resist the temptation as well. We need to stay strong to who we are, never bury our feeling and emotions, and always look all fear in the eyes, so that fear then melts away from us. When we put up these walls we will never face any fear head on, we will always take the easy way out and become someone we truly are not. There is no fear that is stronger then any of us, we only make it look strong as we give into it and let it totally control who we are. This includes the power of Addiction, yes an addiction is very powerful, but when we let it control us and not stand up to it, then like fear it will conquor us and take us deeper into the darkness, with zero light anywhere in front of us.

Sometimes we need to change what we are doing, in order to get to who we truly are, and for some that may seem harder then walking through a brick wall, but in a lot of ways, we are walking through that brick wall, as we have put up the wall to begin with. True there will be much pain to fix what we need in order to get to who we are, but that pain is nothing to the pain of not being of who we are, just that we have numbed ourselves so much from the pain, we do not feel it anymore. We feel nothing from anything, when we try to move forward without our true feelings and emotions, but there is no better feeling in the world, when we are true to ourselves, have complete faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, which then gives us hope to be whatever we want along this journey. When we resist the temptation of Satan, then Jesus will always be with us and guide to the path of righteousness, his blood will warm our hearts as it flows freely within us, his love will always be within us, so we can share that love with each other, and yes it is also okay to cry, as the tears are what heals us from our pain moving forward, just like mother nature rains on the earth, washing away the dirt and bringing out the flowers of life.

We may walk our own paths through this journey of life, but the journey is the same for each of us. We grow and heal in our own ways, but when we resist the temptation of Satan, Jesus will always be by our side as we walk our paths, its the faith that shows us that and brings us all the hope we need moving forward. The darkness does not have to be around long, which will give us all true light throughout this journey, as we see clearly of where we are going, with no obstructions to slow or stop us, and we move forward in the peace of Christ, with joy at every turn.

” The day sky gives way to the night sky, just as the darkness looms over us, the true light will always be around the next corner”

” We only fear the enemy because we let temptation control us and move further away from the power of Jesus Christ”
