one if by water/two if by land

” He walked along a little farther and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They too were in a boat, mending their nets. Then he called them. So they left their father Zebedee in the boat along with the hired men and followed him”

MK 1:19-20

You can be a Fisherman, or you can be a Fisher of Men? No matter which you chose, the reward will fill your heart with warmth, as Jesus Christ fills it with love. Both paths need maintenance, both paths are within this journey of life, and like all paths, there will be many up’s and down’s. Nobody ever said the journey was easy, and those that do, are only kidding themselves as they really haven’t lived the journey.

A Fisherman can and will catch many fish, to not just feed himself, but will feed many throughout his journey, yes will come maintenance at every turn, and not just maintenance of himself, but maintenance of all his supplies and equipment as well. The Fisherman will need a boat to sail out and catch the bigger prize, as the bigger the fish, the more it feeds. A Fisherman needs plenty of faith, cause when he has faith in the days journey, there will be much hope, to return with a boat load of fish, to feed himself and all the Town’s people.

As Jesus walked his path among us, within this journey of life, there were many who followed, but the twelve main followers, were his most loyal, and the ones that were to further his teachings, after he sacrificed himself, for us all. The Fishermen is very much like the Fisher of Men, as one has the followers in the sea, within the net, then hauled into the boat, for the days catch. The Fisher of Men, walk along the land, with their followers, walking behind them, and learning the ways of Jesus through them, sharing the love of Jesus within their hearts, with all those around them, on their journey through their lives.

Now within this society, of which we all walk our paths, the problem before us is, we have strayed away from the house of God, we have buried the warmth of the love of Jesus within our hearts, as our hearts then become cold and bitter. We take to the sea’s on our boat’s, not just for the scenic views, but we only catch the daily catch, for our own consumption, with no thought of anyone around us. Then as we walk our paths along this land, we do so by ourselves, not just making it a lonely journey, but losing the faith of each other, which then has us become divided from each other, and as we are divided, and as our hearts have become cold, we then lose the trust and faith of each other, leaving us with no hope moving forward.

As much as we do not want to admit to, we do need each other, as we walk our paths along this journey of life, this is what makes us complete, and when we enter the doors, of the house of God, and truly believe in his son Jesus, then our hearts become warm with his love, so we than can share that love with each other, as all the ugliness of Satan, disappears from all that is around us. When we all stand as one, with nothing between us to divide us, then there is nothing we can not do, there is nothing to stand in our way, so we then can get to that path of righteousness, which lights up our paths very brightly, with much peace and happiness, and when we are all at our happiest, then it becomes very easy, to show respect, and dignity of each other. Without the love of Jesus within our hearts, it then turns very cold with bitterness, the wall between us, divides us greatly, which makes everything seem so bleak, we then feel very lonely and isolate ourselves further, to try to protect ourselves from all that is around us, this makes for a very rough journey, with great darkness, and no light anywhere, as far as we can see.

” True there will be some darkness to walk through, so the light will come strong and bright”

” A Fisherman will catch the catch of the day, a Fisher of Men will gather us all in faith with great hope moving forward”

Being Emotional and True Emotions

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

There are many different bodies of water all through this planet Earth, where we all walk our paths through this journey of life. There are many different emotions that may come to us all, that will affect us different ways, these emotions are within us always and never leave us, these emotions will bring water from within us, in the form of tears, you have tears of joy, as well as tears of sadness, some may think when you cry for whatever reason is a sign of weakness, on the contrary they are just the opposite, they help us heal, and bring us strength, so we can be better moving forward. In this society we have become afraid to cry, because we think others will see us as weak? We then bury these feelings deep within and hide our true selves from each other, it is when we hide within, that we then separate ourselves from one another, which we then get away from being of who we truly are, then as we get away from who we truly are, now we never heal properly, so we can fix the pain and hurt that affects us so much, and with this society of, hatred, and ugliness, we can clearly see all that have deep pain within, that need to heal, so they can move forward better and stronger.

There are many different feelings of emotions within us all, the one that effects us greatly is, passion. When we are passionate about something, we then with all our beliefs, and faith, believe in that passion with all our being. Yes you can be too passionate to the point that, now it affects you in the wrong way, as a leader and being passionate about something, you can lose of how to be a true leader, which then has you become someone for who you truly are not. It is totally okay to be passionate of anything, just be careful of crossing that fine line of believing 100% of the passion, that now your judgments become clouded and you can’t see true facts that are right in front of you. Then there is the fact of the passion being 100% correct, and your beliefs are strong, but others around you may not share that passion and now you try to push this on them, whether true or not, now you risk trying to push them away and then lose of how to be a true leader. We all share this passion and it is within each of us with our emotions, just like we are all unique to each other, we also will have differences in what we become passionate on.

Just like there are many different bodies of water around us, there are many feelings of emotions within us as well, these emotions will affect us in many ways, and they will either bring us to our knee’s, or they will bring us to be better and stronger as we walk our paths of this journey. We have to find that fine line of, being passionate and being too passionate, then never cross that line, so as a leader we can lead correctly, and not lose what being a true leader really is. There are many passions also, like for instance, I am very passionate about being within mother nature, sleeping in a tent and feeling the heartbeat of the earth, watching the animals thrive in their environment, all the true beauty around me, now some may not like getting out of the grid like I do? That is fine, as I like what I like, and you like what you like, there is nothing wrong with that, but what is wrong is to push your passion on another, which does nothing but create this big divide between us. We all have our our passions and we all must respect that others may have a different passion, which brings a point for another writing, the fact that we all have lost our true respect for one another, within this society of today.

We all have the feeling of emotion within us, and there are many different versions of this emotion, we just need to truly understand our true emotions, understand the why and the how of our emotions, so we then can heal properly with these emotions, so we than can move forward throughout this journey of life, to be better and stronger, as we respect each other, stop this division between us, which will help us all see more clearly, with no clouds clouding our judgments, as we now can be truly of who we are, to share our love of one another, to truly be the leader we need to be, then stop all this hatred and ugliness, that surrounds us now. This journey will never be easy when we are surrounded with ugliness, and hate, it is our passions that is dividing us, simply because we have lost the respect of one another’s passions, and the fact that, we believe that we all should have the same passions, which then has us all being divided, stripping us from being any kind of a true leader. Jesus Christ showed us all of how to truly lead with passion, but because so many have walked away from the house of God, there are very few of us, that can be the true leader, for which we all need, because we all have crossed that fine line of our passions, that have us all someone we truly are not, and from that, have lost what being a true leader really is.

” Cry me a river, when we do this correctly we can heal properly moving forward”

” When we become so passionate of anything and let this divide us, it is time to change and get back on the good side of the passion”

” Real strength comes when we let our emotions cry the right way, without feeling any weakness at all”

Family Time

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you prepared in the sight of all the peoples”.

*** LK 2:30-31***

With yet another Christmas in our rear view mirror and a New Year lurking in our future, let’s look a bit deeper into what is Christmas. Christmas is a whole lot more then giving gifts or even receiving gifts, Christmas is the birth of Jesus Christ and even further, it is the creation of a family between Mary, Joseph, and Jesus. When Jesus came and walked his path here with us, we all focused on him, while Mary and Joseph went to the back burner of life, but if you took the time to notice, both of them were never to far from their son. Even at the time of death for Jesus, his mother Mary was right there with her son, while her love spoke loudly among us all. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph became a family when Jesus was born, they then built that strong foundation and bond that family is, which today we have gotten away from, and all the ugliness and hatred around us today, proves even further, of just how much we have swayed away from what a true family is.

The last few decades we as a society have wandered away from the true meaning of family, we have wandered so far away that, families have become broken, and through all the divorces, there is a whole generation that have grown up with only one parent, making them incomplete. True of the family foundation being solid and strong, but over time and without tending to the decay of the foundation, it then will crumble and fall, which is what we are seeing, with all the ugliness and the hatred around us. Family is what helps us all grow into a society of many, each parent in their own way, teaches everything we need to know to be better and stronger with each step moving forward, The Mother will teach us love, compassion as well as many other factors, the Father will teach us strength, respect as well as many other factors, we need both to be complete, when one is missing, we then are incomplete, the foundation then stops being built, and is so weak, that it does not take much to corrupt who we are.

Our family here on Earth is, a Mother, a Father and Siblings, our spiritual family encompasses a whole lot more, as each of us are brothers and sisters within the society of God. This spiritual family is a lot bigger then our family here on Earth, the family foundation starts being built within our family here on Earth, then continues as we grow within the society, so when we are within a broken family and the foundation stops being built, now we have no basis to build from within the society of many. With all the problems and the troubles that the year 2020 has brought to us all, is a bi product from the last 10+ years, and the fact that we all have been suffering from the effects of all the broken families around us. Now the family you are in may be complete and you may be complete, but all the other families around us and especially the broken ones, whether we want to admit it or not, have effected each of us, in one way shape or form.

Nothing really ever lasts and there will be much change all around us, just like the rock in this picture, you think a rock is solid? but when the rock is submerged in the water for a long time, and then becomes free from the water and into the rays of the sun, it can break in two just like this one. Well the family foundation is much like this rock and needs constant work all the time, to keep it strong and to stand up to the test of time. Each member of the family has their own part in building the foundation, and when one of those parts are missing, now the building stops and the incompletion begins, leaving all to try to find something to fill the void, from the broken family foundation.

Yes it is true that we can succeed along this journey with only one parent, but to truly succeed along this journey, and to feel totally complete as we walk our path of this journey, it takes a complete family, for each of us to feel complete, as we grow into a society of many. Throughout the years all our lives have changed in a negative way, now it is on we the people, that can change it back in a positive way, and in a way that Jesus showed us here on his journey, right now we are all hurting with all this negative change, the time is now to change positively, so we all can get back to peace and happiness, and away from all this ugliness and hatred. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, and it starts with family helping us grow correctly within the society of many.

” Family Time whether spiritual or Earthly, has a foundation to nurture and grow”

” The birth of Jesus Christ brought forth the feeling of family and the building of the family foundation”

Having Faith and truly Believing

Digital Camera

” And the Angel said to her in reply, the Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the most high will overshadow you, therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the son of God”

” For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Christ and Lord”

Within this society of today, do we truly have faith? I mean not just to have the faith to leave for work and return home later, but do we truly have the faith that everything happens for a reason, and yes we can over come whatever that may cross our paths, and when we do, then there will always be hope for us all, as we walk this journey of life. Belief…. this is something we do totally within our hearts, it is not just a word that is thrown out there, just to make like we understand something, when you truly believe 100% with your heart, there is no copy, or there is no faking the belief, because when you truly believe, not only will the faith be there, but there will always be hope as we move forward along our paths, of this journey through life.

True without faith there is no hope, also true that with no belief, there will be no faith or hope, which then leaves us all empty as we walk our paths of this journey through life. There are so many factors throughout this journey, true it can get overwhelming at times, we can lose our way and become lost, as then we are just wandering and not walking as we should. When we truly believe in something, we will always have the faith in that something, which then gives us great hope moving forward along our paths,

Jesus Christ is a great example of true belief, cause when we have complete faith within our hearts and souls for Jesus Christ, then not only can we feel his love within us, but he will help strengthen our faith in him, as he brings us great hope moving forward. True some may say we never see him, but when you truly believe in Jesus Christ, then we shall see the signs he leaves us, as we then discover the faith in not just ourselves, but the faith in Jesus Christ as well, which then leads us to great hope moving forward, which then helps this journey seem not as tough as we sometimes make it out to be. We may never see Jesus among us, but the signs he sends us to see, are all around us, which is why we always need to look deeply at what we see, because when we do not, this is when we will never see the signs, which then leads to zero belief, followed by no faith and the hope will never come to us throughout this journey.

This time of the year, the time of Christmas, is truly the most magical time and the most precious time as well. It is the birth of our savior Jesus Christ, it brings forth the belief in him, so we can truly feel his love within our hearts and souls, then with the belief the faith will then come, and not just in him, but in ourselves as well, while we truly see the signs that Jesus brings to each of us, then as our faith becomes stronger, then the hope we will find right in front of us, leading us into the path of righteousness. Even through the darkest of times, when we find that path of righteousness, the light of Jesus Christ will always light our way, throughout this journey of life. Jesus Christ is always there, he is always within us no matter what, it is us who lose the belief, which gives us no faith, to see no hope as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

” Merry Christmas to all and to all may you totally have the belief in Jesus Christ, which leads you to the faith in yourself and him, while the hope is in front of you”

” Jesus Christ is within us all, which is why we need to look deeply into what we see all the time throughout this journey”

” The three factors in life that we all need to be conscious of always, belief, faith, and hope”

Advent…The coming of Jesus Christ

Digital Camera

” Why do you let us wander, O Lord, from your ways, and harden our hearts so that we fear you not?… Behold, you are angry, and we are sinful, all of us have become like unclean people”.

Isaiah 63:17;64:4

We of this society are completely in the darkness of this storm, and this year of 2020 has darkened the clouds greatly. The weeks of Advent leading to the coming of Jesus Christ on Christmas day, is all about the Hope, the love, the Joy, and the peace, all elements that we as a society have lost, and especially during this year of 2020. We have let the hatred and the ugliness consume us so much, that we do not look at the little things anymore, it’s the little things that have become so unimportant to us, because we look for that big homerun, and forget that it is the base hits that win the game. Because we have let the darkness cloud our judgments, we don’t look for those little things anymore, we don’t look at the big picture, or what is right in front of us, instead we reach for the bright and shiny, so we then shy away from putting in any kind of work, that will help us move forward out of the darkness.

With this Advent is not just the coming of Jesus, it is a magical time of year as well, the magic comes when we have true faith, which then gives us the hope moving forward, then when we truly feel the warmth of love within our hearts, then the empathy within us shines brightly, then as our paths shine a bit of light, the joy brightens even further the path, as through joy comes happiness, and when we are happy, now Jesus is happy and finally the light comes, with the darkness slipping away, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Faith, Love, Joy and Happiness plus the complete faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, these are the ingredients that help the magic, which helps us heal, so the dark clouds can be lifted, and replaced with the bright light of the path of righteousness. Sometimes through the darkness, we just can’t see clearly of what is right in front of us, we become lost and become someone who we truly are not, we hide a big piece of who we are, just to keep from being hurt with real pain, but when we let faith work it’s magic, now the hope will brighten us up, to feel the love and be happy, so we then can be finally in peace, leaving all the ugliness behind.

Jesus Christ came to us on Christmas day, he walked this journey here with us and taught us many things, he shared his love for us and sacrificed himself for us as well, Jesus died for every one of us, no matter of who you are, and with the way 2020 has gone, this is how we pay him back? We let the ugliness, the hatred and the corruption consume us so….. We have become so divided of one another, that we can’t even look each other in the eye, we all need to stop dwelling in the past, so we all can move forward in peace, and with this being the first day of Advent, may we all dig deep, find that true faith, that will give us great hope, so we can be filled with love within our hearts, as the empathy fills our souls, then as our hearts become warm once again, let the Joy bring us much happiness, so as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we all can be at peace, as Jesus becomes proud of us once again and the magic of this special time of year, reaches us all, to heal us better and stronger moving forward.

” Hope, Love, Joy and Peace are all part of the Advent season and what brings the magic of Christmas to us all”

” The love of Jesus Christ is always within our hearts and keeps us warm, but when we don’t acknowledge this love, our hearts become cold”

The light of Jesus Christ is with us all throughout this journey of life

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The light of Jesus Christ is within all our souls and beats within our hearts, Jesus is always there when we need, he will always heal us of our troubles. Jesus came and walked this journey here with us while sharing his love with us all, he sacrificed and died for each of us, so we can be free, not just as we walk our paths through this journey, but free of anything that we may encounter along this journey. This journey may not be perfect, we may not be perfect, but when we acknowledge Jesus Christ within us, this journey will be as close to perfect as perfect can be.

The darkness that encompasses us all today within this society, only comes to us as we have lost touch with the love of Jesus within our hearts, we have strayed away from the house of the Lord and put ourselves above Jesus Christ. The result of all this crap around us today, is a direct result of the fact that we all have lost the feeling of the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls. Our hearts have become cold towards each other as we only think of ourselves and put ourselves above one another, this is not what Jesus taught us when he walked this journey here with us, The problem of this society lies within each us and the solution is also within us, if only we could truly feel the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls. Within this fast paced society, where we want everything now and become impatient, most do not visit the house of God anymore, which the excuse ” I am too busy”, is the excuse of the day, instead of making a weekly trip and praying to Jesus, so we can heal ourselves of our troubles, when we do not heal properly, now we suppress and bury our troubles and try to move forward, but when we suppress we are only delaying til a later time, just we do not realize it at the time. Faith is a key component in our lives, not just faith in ourselves, but having the complete faith in Jesus Christ, as we walk our paths of this journey through life. When we lose the faith and have no confidence in ourselves, it is Jesus that helps us find it, so we than can have hope moving forward, as when there is faith there will always be hope.

We may walk many paths through this journey, but there is only one journey in our lives as we all have the same beginning and the same ending. The paths may change as other variables may change in our lives, these variables will come to us in many different ways, with some bringing much pain and hurt, there are many of us feeling the pain and hurt, and we all deal with it in our own way, we never talk to anybody of what ails us, because we don’t want to admit to any weakness, but as they say talk is cheap, on the contrary, talk will make us all rich, as it heals us within our souls, so we can keep moving forward better and stronger. For the most part, the pain and hurt will keep us from being true to ourselves as well as each other, it will have us hide within and become someone for who we truly are not, there are many today who are hurting, but we will never know, as they keep to themselves in this world of fast pace.

This journey may have many variables, but when we keep the variables to a minimum, this journey will then reward us with a journey well walked, Throughout this journey, Jesus is always within us no matter of what path we may walk, we just need to acknowledge him, so he than can help us heal from all our troubles. Jesus can’t help us unless we acknowledge him and when we distent ourselves from him, that is when our confidence goes away and the troubles seem to get bigger then they really are, which then the light turns to darkness and we become cold to everything around us.

” The light turns to darkness, then with faith and hope the darkness will then go back to the bright lights, that light up our paths moving forward”

” Talk is never cheap as true talk will help us become even richer then any amount of money will bring us to”

Crazy Society for which we live today

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Today’s Society is so full of crap, makes me want to go the bathroom every five min. There is so much going on that you can very easily get overwhelmed if you do not pay attention, with the Political correction it will have you walking on egg shells, fearing you do not offend anyone? Then there is the corruption, it is so deep that it may seem like a daunting task just to stay a float, without sinking deeper into the depths of the unknown. With all the fear mongoring and hatred all around us, it will leave a scar as we try to heal from all the pain and the hurt, these are just a few of the ugliness around us, as some will do whatever they can, just to grab all the power and control, over each and everyone of us, that try to move forward throughout this journey of life.

The Corona Virus or for a better and more truthful way of saying it, ” the China Virus”, as it did originate in china, the reason is still to be determined? But I think we who have a brain and are not deep within the walls of denial, can figure out the why that this virus has infected so many. Then throughout all this crap, you have a far left liberal media that has done nothing but create even more fear, bringing us more drama, as to try to scare the Hell out of each one of us, so we fall into their trap of them controlling us, then as we fear to leave our homes, they walk the streets freely and live their plush exotic lifestyles. I
think it is time that we the people take all the power back from the media, as we never buy into their propaganda, or their far left liberal agenda.

Then there are these ones that we vote into office, that then get way to complecent, that they forget about you and me, and have their hand out for the highest price, that they can get, to live high off the hog, with their fancy cars, multiple homes and within their gated communities. Now we the people within this society can be at fault for the ones within the walls of Washington DC, as we have become to lazy to actually research whoever it is that we vote for, instead we then keep the ones in that are already there and use the excuse that, Oh well!!! might as well keep them there and not bring in new blood? I have a news flash for you, we are living a product of our laziness within this society, as now we try to move forward as best we can, throughout this journey of life.

I have been saying for a long time now that we are within this ” all about me” society, we are all out for ourselves, as we have lost the true empathy that is deep within our souls. Because we have lost this true empathy, we have lost touch with each other and have lost touch with true reality all around us. We are all walking on a thin sheet of ice, as we fear with each step that we do not fall through to the unknown below. It is so sad that within this society that, some will do whatever they can for all the control, as this journey is something we all walk, true we all walk our own paths, but the journey is the same and God left plenty of room for us all, just that lately we have this ” I” in our Team and are not willing to share, let alone try to help one another. Life is not just about you, as there are many that also walk through this journey, true the paths we walk may be different, but the journey is all the same and Jesus did come here and walk this journey among us, while not just showing us, but teaching us many things along his way.

” If the ice is really that thin beneath our feet, then why the hell are we out there walking for?”

” Through power and control comes much pain and hurt, then why do we want all the power and control for then?”

” Don’t become a sheep among the herd, step out of the comfort zone and walk your path as a Wolf and explore all that is around you”

The Division, reality or not…..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” Some may want to divide us to gain all the control of all that is around them, but when we stand in unity there will be no division”

After spending some time off the grid and meeting a few who were also out there off the grid within the wilderness, there is no division in this screwed up society, the only division comes to us from the far left liberal media and those on the far left of the party in denial, AKA………. The Democrats.

Life within the beauty of Mother Nature is the most perfect life there is, the peace, the serenity, and even when you become so stressed in your everyday daily grind, you step out within Mother Nature and the stress simply melts away, and you can actually feel it, like a huge weight being lifted off of your shoulders. With all this craziness around us and coming to us like bullets out of a machine gun by the far left liberal media, will make us totally forget everything else around us, will make us forget that there is true beauty out there, but the media don’t want us to see that, as they pull out all the stops to brainwash us and control everything around us. Then there is social media, something that we all have become addicted to, the addiction is the hook that all the big tech companies like twitter and facebook, will use to reel us all deeper into the ugliness and the hatred all around us.

Mother Nature is God’s country, God created this beauty so we all can enjoy it, the problem in this society is, we don’t get out enough to fully enjoy it. We get so engulfed with all the ugliness, corruption and the hate that is around us, we become afraid to step outside our comfort zones, that we neglect everything that Mother Nature has to offer. The beauty is so deep within the wilderness, it is like it never ends, every where you turn there is more beauty as far as the eye can see, the far left liberal media do not want us to see the beauty, as they will keep bombarding us with much hatred and ugliness.

True there are other animals around us, we become so afraid of them we then will not step outside within Mother Nature with them, but we tend to forget that, they have a home just like you and I, and we have to respect their home just as we want others to respect our home. Respect is a two way street and when you walk your path of this journey through life with a lack of respect, then Karma gets involved and you do not want to deal with Karma, as with Karma comes the saying, ” pay back is a B!@#$”. Some may think they are entitled to everything around them, but in reality you are only entitled to what you earn and if you do not earn that something, then you are entitled to nothing. Life is of what you make it and if you make it hard then life will be hard, in today’s society we have foregotten this, which because of the actions of some, is why we see all the hatred and ugliness that is around us today.

Camping off the grid is something we all should do from time to time, not only does it help you relax, and let the stress melt away from our souls, but it helps you get back to who you truly are, helps you get back in touch with all the good around you, and when you come across others out there and they all wave and say hello, it proves that we are all in unity walking this journey, and this journey is not at all like what the far left liberal media wants us to believe, or like what the party of denial wants us to believe in as well, we all may walk our own paths, but this journey through life is all the same, whether you are on the left, the right, or within the middle, and when we unite together is when we can walk in peace and be as happy as we can be, throughout this journey of life.

” The only division in this society comes from the far left liberal media with their twisted agendas”

” Mother Nature is a beauty we all take for granted and never experience it as we should”

Rest for the Weary

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

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

Matthew 11:28

Within this fast paced society of today, that is driven by greed and self righteousness, we do become very weary daily, how do you rest or re-charge your body? For some maybe load up on coffee for plenty of caffeine, maybe a mid day power nap? Or maybe even a weekend away? But these things are simply a temporary fix that passes quickly and the weariness returns, as the faith in Jesus Christ is what gives us the true rest deep within our souls, we just need to come to him, so we than can get the true rest our body needs.

With our daily routines comes frustration and chaos within the world around us as well, When we don’t get what we want, we become frustrated, when our jobs push us to our brink, we then become very weary which brings a whole host of chaos to our lives, when we become so tired from the stress, the chaos and the work from the push, we then will enter into burnout and if we do not handle the burnout correctly, we then will become bitter, have a wide variety of health problems, which then brings us much pain and hurt. Within the fast paced society we forget to truly heal ourselves in mind, body and soul, because we get so caught up in the chaos and our minds get lost within the clouds of our judgments, that we forget to take the time for ourselves, to regain the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ. When we heal properly and when we get the proper rest we need, then not only can we walk freely of our paths on this journey of life, but we can also walk together with each other, without bringing hatred, chaos or ugliness to all that is around us.

We all will walk our own paths but the journey is the same, throughout this journey there will be many events that will tesgt us, there will be many who may cross our paths that will bring us much pain and hurt, as well as many that will come to us to help us when we need help the most, the problem then becomes we ourselves and when we do not be truthful to ourselves, how then can we be truthful with each other? The bigger picture of this is, not being truthful with ourselves, we then can never be truthful with Jesus Christ, which then becomes the number one reason why, we stop going within the house of God, to not just pray, but to hide deep within ourselves and not acknowledge of who we truly are. When we all come together in unity while being truthful of ourselves, with the faith of ourselves and Jesus Christ, then the love within our hearts will shine at it’s brightest, as all the hatred and ugliness disappears from all around us.

Rest is key for us all and not just resting from the work we put in from our jobs, but the rest that will help us heal from all our troubles, the rest that gives us spiritual healing deep within our soul. Getting out deep within Mother Nature and within her peace and serenity, will help us get the true rest we need, so we can heal within our mind, body and soul, from all that troubles us, so we than can move forward better and stronger. Some may want to vacation in an exotic place, with many others around and become stressed as they try to fit in everything in a short period of time, but thats not true rest, as it does nothing but add to the already tension within us. Step outside, step out deep within the woods of nature, listen to the peace and the sounds of nature, the birds singing their songs, the wind passing through the leaves of the tree, the water slapping against the shoreline, even a woodpecker pecking away at the tree. When you get out within Mother Nature and totally relax, you can feel the stress melt away from your body, kind of like a heavy weight being lifted off of your shoulders, spend a week out there and now you will recieve the proper healing within your mind, body and soul, plus you will also will trust yourself and while this takes place, learn to trust in Jesus Christ once again, as he led you to this special place, so you can truly heal as he wants you to. This is the biggest problem in this fast paced society, we don’t trust as we once did for whatever reason? We then hide deep within ourselves as we think we are protecting ourselves from any or further harm, but as the clouds then over come our judgments, we lose sight of who we truly are as we keep the foot on the gas and speed up further the pace throughout this journey, what do not realize is that while we bury deeper of who we truly are, our trust of each other gets buried as well. So as we move forward throughout this journey, we then hurt deeply each other and never show any love or empathy of each other. All this is on us the people of this society and all this can change if only we the people change our ways moving forward, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Rest for the weary isn’t just falling asleep, it’s the healing of the mind, body and soul”

” The power of mother nature can change everything within it, just simply trust in her and the healing will begin”

The sun still shines even through the clouds

“Help me, Lord, not to allow the clouds of the day prevent me from seeking your face. May I, like Moses, be bold enough to approach the thick darkness if that is where your presence is found”

Exodus 20:21

” They looked… and behold, the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud”

Exodus 16:10

We all walk a path through this journey of life, each of us as we walk our paths will experience the darkness of the clouds from time to time and some may struggle, while others simply flow through the clouds. The clouds at times are really thick and dark, as the light may seem like it is not passing through them? But as we tend to fear the darkness, we over look the fact that Jesus is the light and he is seeing us through the thick dark clouds to watch over us as we try to keep moving forward in the darkness. Jesus will send us signs through the darkness, but it is up to us to see these signs, no matter how dark or how thick the clouds may seem.

Sometimes throughout this journey we all get discouraged, we all will have these life events that may derail us, we all will stumble, trip and fall along our paths and this will bring us much pain and hurt, the pain and hurt will leave scars, yes, but those scars do not have to dictate, how we then move forward throughout the rest of our journey’s. The scars are there to remind us what was? So we than can move forward with confidence to be better and stronger, but unfortunatly, we don’t let the scars heal properly and we then continue to struggle, as we then become someone for who we truly are not.

Even Jesus experienced the darkness within the clouds, as Satan himself came to him and tempted him to come to the side of the darkness, we to get tempted in many ways, but unlike Jesus with his confidence and the light of his father, we get caught up within the thick dark clouds, we let the fear of the dark overwhelm us, and we then let the power of temptation suck us into it’s grip, as the claws dig in never letting us go. The darkness may be scary, yes, but if we truly keep the faith in ourselves and the faith in Jesus Christ our saviour, then there will always be hope each and every day as we walk our paths through this journey of life. It is the faith and the hope that guide us through the darkness, regardless of how thick or how dark the clouds may be, it is the faith and the hope that keep us from getting to deep within the fear of the darkness. Jesus had that faith in his father and himself, which then gave him the hope to keep moving forward, as he then shared his love with us all, showing us of how to walk our paths and leading us to the path of righteousness, that is full of the light of God, above all the clouds and away from the darkness and the fear. Know matter how thick the clouds, no matter how dark the clouds may look with no light streaming through them, the fear will then come to us in order to control us into becoming someone who we truly are not, thats where the confidence in ourselves comes in and helps us keep the faith, so the hope everyday will always help heal the scars, that will keep us better and stronger, throughout this journey of life, as we walk our paths with as little pain and hurt as we can.

” Temptation is the root to all the evil as it will have us become someone for who we are not”

” Pain and hurt will bring us discouragment, but faith and hope will lead us to the light and peace”
