Walk with Faith, to see the Hope

” Simon Peter answered him, Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of Eternal Life”

Jn 6:68

With these words within the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, some may not truly understand, so they will turn away and give up on following Jesus Christ. This quote from the Gospel, couldn’t be truer of the way we are within this society. We all in one way or another, have walked away from something, we give up on working through something because it is the easy way out. Take marriages for instance, gone are the days of 40+ years together, only because, nobody wants to work together to get thru the tough times, so we think the grass will be greener with another at our side? In some cases, the marriage gets off on the wrong foot, as some will become someone they are not just to land what they say is the ” big catch”? If your basing a marriage on this philosophy, then you will be doomed from the very beginning. When you are not true to who you are at the beginning, then how do you expect for anyone to truly know the real you? Life is not about portraying some fake portion, or maybe someone that you yourself does not even know, because when you do this, then you are dividing yourself, from all others around you.

Then as we walk our paths of this journey, there will be many life events that will come to us, yes these events will control us if we let them. Some of these events will be brought on by ourselves and our actions, as other events will come from those around us. No matter how the event may come, when the going gets rough, we walk away to try to escape it, instead of facing it head on and working through our troubles, which will actually make us better and stronger moving forward. Jesus talks about his body and blood to his followers, he then passes around a bread loaf for each to rip off a piece, for his last supper, then passes around the red wine as his blood, for all to drink. When we eat this bread and drink this wine, we are acknowleding Jesus within our hearts and souls, as he then gives us eternal life within the world of his peace. It is when we do not keep to this faith, that any hope for our future, diminishes from our paths. Right now within this society, too many have lost this faith, as we see all the chaos and ugliness around us. Many have walked away from Jesus Christ, as they think they can do better as they walk this journey through life? Some may go to the house of the Lord on Sunday’s, then as they leave after service, will forget what was said and return to their own ways? But will say they believe? To truly believe in Jesus Christ, is believing with your mind, body and soul, listening to the words in the Gospel and implementing them within your current life, not forgeting what was said, then trying to move forward with your own version? Jesus was not about taking over the world, or killing others, this is totally on we the people, and with all the ugliness around us, we can clearly see, just how many have walked away and gave up on Jesus, taking the easy way out, instead of staying in the fight and working through the hard times, so we than can be within the peace and love of Jesus Christ.

To some within this society, it is all about me, me, me, they think that Jesus never exsisted and no matter right or wrong, their way is the only way? This is exactly the kind of attitude that is affecting us all as we walk our paths of this journey. With this attitude or Ideaology, we are on a path of division and destruction, unless we change our ways and attitudes, then one day there will be nothing left for further societies to come. We are our own worst enemy, we will walk away from anything that gives us troubles and find the easy way, as we have become too lazy, to work for anything that is worth it for our future. Yes, there are some that will try to push their ways on to us, they will Bully us into taking our control away from us, so they can only seem as powerful as they are? Those who are being Bullied, then walk away, instead of standing up to the Bully, because at the time it seems like the easy way out, but in reality, we are furthering the agenda of the Bully. We all have been bullied at some point along our paths, it is how we deal with these times and not walk away, that determines of how we move forward, better and stronger throughout this journey we walk.

Walking away from anything at the time, may seem like the best thing? But in reality, we are hurting ourselves and those around us. We have walked away from too many of our troubles in the past, only if we have stayed and fought harder to overcome the troubles, then maybe our futures wouldn’t be so bleak? With all the division and the destruction around us today, goes to show just how many have walked away, to take what they thought was the easy way out? Jesus walked through this journey, not to show us this division and destruction, this is on each of us within this society, Jesus walked this journey, to show us love, compassion for each other, how to get through the troubling times, to get through the storms, so we can get to the other side, the side of the light of the path of righteousness, as he brings us into his peace and joy, of the eternal world. This journey of life does not revolve around any certain one of us, it revolves around us all, and when we truly feel the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, when we truly have the faith in Jesus Christ, we then will see the hope right in front of us, as we keep moving forward along our paths, we also will be more able to walk through any storm and get to the other side, the side of the light along the path of righteousness, that is the path Jesus showed us to get to, for the eternal life, of the world of peace and happiness always.

When those troubling times come to you, when the darkness takes away all the light, this is when we need to be at our strongest, this is when we need to stand up and fight the good fight, keep the true faith in Jesus Christ as he will help guide us, as we dig down deep within, to not just walk through the storm, but walk through with faith, that the true hope will always be there on the other side, so we than can be within the peace and joy of Jesus Christ. This journey isn’t about walking away and taking the easy route, but when we fight the good fight and overcome our troubles, then this journey will become easy for us all, as now through the faith in Jesus and ourselves, the peace and joy is right in front of us along with the hope, which then dismisses all the division and the ugliness that may be around us. Satan is the one who will place the bumps along our paths, to trip us up away from Jesus Christ, he will bring to us many temptations, that will bring nothing but darkness to us all. This is why we need to keep the faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, so we can have the true hope before us, and not the false hope of, all the divisiion and ugliness that Satan will give us, when we give in to his temptations. The decision is ours to make, we can either feel the warmth of the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, or we can let our hearts become cold, within the world of Satan, full of division and destruction. When we truly follow Jesus as he guides us onto the path of righteousness, we will be within the eternal life of his peace and joy, but when we chose Satan, we then will be within all the division and ugliness, which then brings much pain and hurt to us all. With the true faith in Jesus and ourselves, we then can walk through the dark times, to get into the light of salvation and eternity, which then will bring to us, the peace and joy of Jesus Christ.

So the easy way out and to just walk away from your troubles, may seem like the best way? The grass is never greenest on the other side, as we need to work through our troubles, so we than can truly see the real green grass on the other side, as we become better and stronger moving forward. This is what Jesus taught us as he walked this journey with us, this is how we evolve with strength and how we move forward instead of backwards further into the darkness. We can walk away from everything that may be in front of us, but if we do not fight the good fight, we will never learn the true meaning of what Jesus taught us during his time with us. So as the Priest talks of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, he really means that, don’t just eat the bread and use the wine to chase it down, let the bread melt in your mouth, then let the blood of Christ bring it throughout your body, as you acknowledge Jesus is within you, then you can feel the true warmth of his love within your heart and soul, so with the true faith of Jesus and of yourself, now you can walk through any darkness, to get to the light of the hope in front of you, that will bring you to the eternal life of peace and joy always.

” The easy way is to never walk away and give up, to get through the troubles we must fight the good fight so this journey then becomes easy for us all”

” To walk away from the troubles we may think is easy, but we are just extending all the division and ugliness further along our paths”

” When the troubles come to us, this is Satan trying to tempt us into the darkness, we need to stand strong against him, so the darkness will give way to the light of salvation and the eternal life of Jesus Christ, for true faith and hope into his peace”

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”

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”

Just because you do not see him…….

” My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me”

Psalm 101:6

Hope for today:

It’s tempting to look at men and women in scripture and think they were superhuman or ultra holy. The same God who walked with them walks with us, we just need to remain faithful knowing his eyes are on us.

The time that Jesus Christ came and walked his journey here with us is so far removed, that within todays society we just do not acknowledge his existence? This is the problem today, and what has led us into a life of non faithfulness, which then leads us into a world of no hope, as without faith there will never be hope. Jesus is within us all and when we keep our faith in him as well as ourselves, we can clearly feel his warmth within our hearts and souls. That warmth you feel in your heart, that is the love of Jesus comforting you, which then you share that love with all those around you. This love is all natural to us and very easy to share, the hatred we see is not natural, and is learned from other sources such as Satan himself, with the hate only shows not just how cold our hearts have become, but how cold we have become toward one another.

There are three words that best describe this society today, power, control and greed. With the far left liberal media and the so called leader’s within the walls of Washington DC taking center stage through it all. All these Individuals have an agenda whether they admit it or not? These agendas will benefit them only and leave the rest of us out in the cold. Their biggest agenda is to bring more unwanted drama to us all, they will tell us only what they want us to know, and never tell us the real truth, they will tell us so many lies that they themselves will then become engulfed in the world of denial, which has them telling so many lies, that they lose touch with true reality. The power of denial is so strong, that it will strip you of who you truly are, as now you yourself will not even recognize yourself, even when looking into the mirror.

Throughout this journey of life, we never know what lurks around each corner that is in front of us? Just like this picture as you stare into the thick forest, you do not know what lurks deep within the thick woods? This is where the faith and the trust in yourself and in Jesus Christ comes in, as then you can have the hope to walk through with confidence, as now you have become better and stronger for it, as you walk your path of this journey through life with great hope moving forward. Our so called leaders and the far left liberal media with their sick twisted agendas, have lost this concept, which they then bring us their far fetched rhetoric and propaganda’s.

These storm clouds hovering above these mountains may look mean and nasty? Yes the storms can wreak havoc and bring damage, but when you are prepared, and keep to your faith in yourself as well as Jesus Christ, this is the confidence you need, to walk through these storms unscathed, as now you have reached the light and the bright sun on the other side, which brings you the peace and the joy that you are searching for. This journey of life has many paths for us to walk, yes we may take the wrong path that will bring us many storms, but if we never keep to the faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, we will never get to the right path, that will bring us great hope, within the peace and the joy, that we all are searching for.

Just because you do not see Jesus Christ, does not mean he does not exist? He is within us all, he warms our hearts with his love for us then to share with each other, he lives within our souls and guides us along our paths, as we then move forward throughout this journey, so we can get to that path of righteousness, which brings us all the peace and happiness we so deserve. Just as God brought to us his son, Jesus one day will bring to us his son, so we can be renewed into the faith, and see all the hope right before us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. What we all lose sight of today is, the fact that we all have lost that feeling deep within of the love of Jesus Christ within our hearts and soul, we let the power of denial control every fiber of our being. Then when denial is front and center within us, we then lose who we truly are and suppress it so deep within, that know we move forward portraying this fake self to those around us and we black out what is real, to replace it with what is fake. Just like we have many streets to drive within this society, so to are their many paths to walk throughout this journey, without the faith of ourselves and Jesus Christ, there will never be any hope moving forward.

” Just because you do not see Jesus Christ, does not mean he does not exist”

” We drive many streets in our lives, we forget that there are also many paths to walk through this journey as well”

” When the storms encompass us all, we need faith and confidence to have the hope to get through them unscathed”

Yet another Lenten journey

da9b9-lent_2013_40days

” A Leper came to Jesus and kneeling down begged him and said, “if you wish, you can make me clean”. Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand, touched him, and said to him, I do will it, be made clean”

MK 1:40-41

With yet another Lenten journey about to embark and open it’s gates to us all, may we all first take the trek back into the house of God, so we can rekindle our relationship with Jesus, to let our hearts be warmed with his love, to fill our souls, then bring the same warmth and love to one another, as we then take the 40 day journey of Lent, through this journey of life.

As we take this journey of Lent, we do so as we sacrifice something, just as Jesus sacrificed himself, for us all. When Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he did so while showing us all, just how to not only love ourselves, but to love all those around us as well. Jesus is the one who healed us from all the ugliness around us, he healed many from their sicknesses and their diseases, all we need was, to have complete faith in ourselves as well as in him, so we then can have great hope moving forward. Jesus has done a great deal for each of us, now as the journey of Lent is upon us, let us show him Respect, by honoring him, and sacrificing a part of us, through this journey of Lent.

When the Leper stepped forward into the eyes of Jesus, those around him flinched with his looks, but Jesus never flinched as he called him near, The Leper asked Jesus to cleanse him, and Jesus did just that with no regret. Those that were there and witnessed the cleansing, were in complete awe of this, as they to wanted Jesus to heal them moving forward. Even though we of this society have never seen or heard from Jesus, he is there, not only there, but with the faith in him, he gives us hope moving forward, as we walk our paths through this journey. The love of Jesus is always within us, and will never leave us, only that, with our actions and the clouds of our judgments, does then the love become buried deeply, as our hearts then become cold.

We of this society, and we of little faith today, have lost sight of the hope that is in front of us, because of some among us, we are forced to see all the ugliness, forced to bury the love deep within, which then fills our hearts with the cold of hatred, that clouds our judgments, that brings us into denial, without seeing the reality that is right in front of us. We are better than this, we are stronger than this, Jesus didn’t teach us this when he came to us, this is totally on us, the people who walk their paths of this journey, we have become so engulfed with the negatives, that the clouds are stopping us from seeing any positives. It really doesn’t have to be this way, this is not of who we truly are, as the love is always within us, and the hate is a learned behavior, of which we learn it from somewhere, or someone. Today we all have become the Leper of this society, and with this Lenten journey in front of us, may we all then, come before Jesus Christ and kneel, as we then ask him to heal us from this ugliness around us, so we than can dig down deep, get back in touch with his love, let the love warm our hearts once again, so the hate will disappear from us all, share the love with each other. Then as we are back in touch with our true selves, and as we keep the faith of ourselves and Jesus front and center, then the hope will always be there in front of us as well, so we then can move forward in strength, walk our paths to be better, throughout this journey of life, as Jesus showed us, when he came to us and walked his path among us.

The ugliness and the hatred within this society is totally on all of us, this is not of who we truly are. Just like the society back when Jesus came and walked his path, we of this society have let some, engulf us with their power, control and greed grab, that has forced us into the darkness, and away from the light. It is okay to travel through the darkness, as this helps heal us from our troubles, but when we get stuck in the darkness, with no light in sight, this is when we bury the love of Jesus deeply, as we try to minimize the pain, to keep the hurt as little as we can, the darkness keeps us in touch with reality, as the light is right around the corner. Even the light of the day, gives way to the darkness, but only for a short time, as the light comes back even brighter the next day, We are all encompassed within the darkness of the ugliness around us, this darkness does not have to last, so as we enter in this Lenten journey once again, may we all sacrifice something as Jesus did, so at the end of this 40 day journey of Lent, we then, can move into the light, with complete faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, as the hope brings the love up out of the darkness within us, warms our hearts greatly, so we than can share this love with each other, as we now can walk our paths better and stronger, which then, brings the peace and happiness to us all throughout this journey of life.

” Through the darkness comes the light, just like when there is faith there is also hope”

” When the Leper steps out of the darkness we turn away, which further deepens the love within us”

” The 40 days of Lent is just a small sacrifice, then the sacrifice Jesus made for all throughout this journey”

The flow through this journey of life

” God so loved the world that he gave his only son so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life”

Jn 3:16

 

Just as the creek flows down off the mountain, we to flow along our paths on this journey through life. The creek will encounter obstacles to overcome on its journey, so do we encounter obstacles as we walk our paths of this journey. The journeys may differ, but the concept is the same, unlike the creek we the people take so much for granted along our path, as one is the true beauty all around us, there is so much beauty, but as we become so engulfed in the ugliness and the hate, we then become someone for who we truly are not and bury deep within who we truly are, as well as our true feelings and emotions.

This journey through life for all of us will have the same beginning as well as the same ending, but what lies in between determines on the path you choose to walk, some paths will have many bumps and pitfalls that will knock you down, which then will be determined by the way you get up from the many falls, some paths may be well-groomed, which then doesn’t prepare you for the pitfalls, but we still have to work hard along our paths in order to make this journey well walked.

The birds singing their many beautiful songs, the vegetation so alive and vibrant, feeling the true heartbeat of this planet Earth, some of the most beautiful things around us. Each one of us sharing our love and empathy that is within us with each other, this is the most precious thing we have, but yet as we get so engulfed with all the ugliness, we lose this as our hearts go so cold. The beauty of Mother Nature is beyond beautiful, it has the power to heal us from our troubles when the daily grind has us in its clutches, escape within Mother Nature and feel the weight of the grind simply melt from your body. When you become engulfed in your routine, doing the same thing day in and day out, escape within Mother Nature and see new things, the type of things you will never see in your daily routine. We all need to escape the grind that is life from time to time, as this is what heals us and helps us become better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” The journey is supposed to flow like the creek down the side of the mountain”

 

” Mother Nature is more beautiful, its power can change us all moving forward throughout this journey of life”

 

” The journey up the mountain can seem like a lot of work, but it is work that soothes us from our daily struggles when we look deeply into all the beauty around us”

 

 

The Fire burns deep within us all

 

We all walk a path through this journey of life, as we walk these paths there are many crossroads that we come upon, there are many storms we will walk through there are also many dark days that will overwhelm us, we will get so overwhelmed that we will then will fear many things and then become lost along our path and lose all sight of any light at the end of darkness.
We all may like sitting around a campfire with the ambiance it gives us as well as the warmth on a cloudy cool night, staring into the hot coals of the embers of the fire puts us into a deep trance that will hypnotize us into a better place, a place that we can melt away the ugliness and clouds within our judgments and leave us with a clear head that will heal us from our troubles. There is also a fire that burns deep within our soul, this fire gives us the strength to be better at all we do, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When this fire is burning properly it makes for a happier place as we walk our paths, but when this fire goes out, now we then become troubled with many issues and become lost as we struggle to move forward through this journey.
Robin Williams was one that suffered more than we truly now as the depression ate at him from the inside out, he used his comedy to make us all laugh, so we wouldn’t see the true pain he was in, he buried this pain so deep that it put out the flames of his fire in his soul, but he used the comedy to keep trying to move forward as he walked his path of this journey. We all have our issues to some degree, we all suffer in our own way, but what truly hurts each of us more than we know, is the fact that, within this society of power, greed and ugliness, we are all guilty of hurting one another by the actions we take toward one another, we are so busy trying to get to the front, that we totally take for granted everything around us and we also over look all the true beauty that is around us as well.
With everything going around as we speak within this society, this virus that has consumed the World has also divided us and brought us all into the darkness. We the people can turn this around but we have to do so together, we need to change ourselves, so the right change will then come to this society, of which we then can move forward properly throughout this journey. This includes our so called leaders and this virus has proved thoroughly that they are so divided, that even they have stooped into the lows of the power of denial, they are so consumed with their own agendas, that they have lost sight of the true reality that is around them, they have lost sight of the ones that have put them into the offices they hold, they have becomes so corrupt that they not only can not hold themselves accountable, that they can not hold each other accountable as well. Through their corruption, their hatred of our seated President has become so strong, that they have lost the true feeling of love that is within us all. The one thing that President Trump said as Candidate Trump was, that he would drain the swamp, well he is doing just that, except the fact that we didn’t know just how deep that swamp truly was? The swamp goes so deep that, not only does it spread within the walls of Washington DC, it also spreads throughout all the leaders of the World and is exactly why, the hatred of this President is so great from our so called leaders. True that President Trump likes to chat and very true he may put his foot in his mouth from talking to much, but seriously, we have all done this a time or two ourselves, just that we also have a corrupt far left liberal media, that also has a strong hatred of this seated President, to the point that they will twist around his words, to try to turn all against him.
The fires of Hell couldn’t be more prevalent then right now in this society, they have become so hot, that they have extinguished the fires within us all, which has brought forth all this hatred and division around us, we have let Satan into our lives because we have taken God out of everything we do, which then has us all with lost faith, which then gives us no hope as we move forward within this society. With the lack of faith we then have let conspiracy theories, doubt and hateful chats take the place of hope as we try to make sense of what is around us, the fear of true change has become so strong that we do not want to go there, which the change of who we have become has totally scared the crap out of us to the point, that we have buried who we truly are deep within us and as we move forward showing only this fake self, this person that even we ourselves do not know, but Satan knows and he totally is in control, which in this society of control, totally makes sense. We need to change ourselves, change who we have become, bring back God into our lives, so we then can regain the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, which will restore the power of the Holy Spirit within our souls, as the hope will then return to us all moving forward, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” The embers of the campfire we gaze into will hypnotize us into a better place helping to heal us from our troubles”

” Change may be scary when we do not understand, but change can also be very good especially from the inside out”

” The fires of Hell will burn us deeply with a great scar, but the fire that burns within us leaves no scar and burns very cleanly”

The current of the waves throughout this journey

 

 

 

This journey through life will not only throw you a curve, but it will also pull you into the current, even as you try to fight it to get out of it. When the current gets churned up by the winds above, it creates these waves that have you weave and bob your way forward, yes you can get tired real fast as you work hard at the weaving and the bobbing, through the feelings of being tired it can and will make you want to give up and what we do not know at the time, we become stronger when we keep fighting instead of giving up. When we give in and give up, now we become successive to a whole slew of other issues, which makes this journey even harder than it really needs to be.

There will be many storms that will come to us as we walk our paths through this journey of life, but each storm will pass and we will keep moving forward, sometimes with each storm, we get so caught up within the twisted whirlwinds, that we become lost with no sense of direction, we get so pushed around by the current that we become dazed and confused for the true direction of our path so we then give up and just drift in the direction of the wind, till the winds die down and stop, then we begin to try to find where we are and pick up the pieces, so we can attempt to move forward like we knew what was going on. The storms may overwhelm us as they show their fury, but when we stay true to who we are, we will weather the storm and move forward into the light of the sun and calmer days.

When Jesus came to us and walked his journey here with us, he showed us how to walk through the storm, how to have complete faith in self and in him so we then can move forward stronger, he never showed us nor did it ever come to him to show us how to give up that is totally on us with our actions or maybe in our inactions. Jesus was tempted by Satan to walk with him and leave his father in heaven, but he stayed true to his faith in himself and his father, showing us all, that having true faith will always lead us to the hope to move forward better and stronger, so we will always find the light of the path of righteousness, which then leads us to love, happiness and peace always.

 

” When life has you struggling to stay afloat, paddle harder so you find the calmer waters and smoother water moving forward along the journey”

 

” Never let the rigorous flow decide your fate, work harder and let your destiny be that of happiness, peace and smooth sailing”

 

” The storms will always cross our paths, the storms will always seem overwhelming, but with true faith, there will always be hope to pass through the storm, get through the darkness of the storm, to reach the light of the path of righteousness”

 

 

 

 

National day of Prayer

20170810_123212.jpg

” Jesus answered and said to her ” if you knew the gift of God and who is saying to you” ‘give me a drink’, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water”

Jn 4:10

 

Basically with this passage, it is saying that we in this society have not only walked away from Jesus Christ but because of that, we also have lost the true faith and hope that Jesus gives us, when we acknowledge him and his love for us that is deep within our hearts and souls always and forever, then Jesus will always walk this journey with us, as we move forward better and stronger.

 

May we all join together in Prayer today not just for ourselves, but for each other asking Jesus to waive his healing hand over the world, so this virus that has encompassed the world, will disappear, leaving us all with good health and prosperity. Prayer is something that we have lost the faith in, now yes I get the fact that Jesus may not seem real to us in this society and I get the fact that it may be hard to have faith in someone that we have never seen, but that is what having true faith in someone or something is all about. When we have true faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, this is what gives us all hope moving forward to be better and stronger.

 

This picture shows the calm peacefulness of the water while showing the true beauty of what is around you,  very true that the water can be churned up and show us a very different picture, but when we truly feel the love of Jesus deep within our hearts and souls, truly have the faith of ourselves and Jesus Christ, then we all can see the hope of goodness always right in front of us, with zero ugliness like we see today. The love of Jesus Christ is that bridge helping us over the troubled waters when the water becomes churned up,

 

Currently, right now we are walking the forty-day journey known as Lent, which quite frankly does not surprise me that such a virus would run rampant among us, only because this should be all the proof we need to show us, just how much we have distent ourselves from the love of Jesus. When we truly feel the love of Jesus within us, this will then help us all not only be in touch with our true feelings of love but will also let us share this love with each other, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

Through love is where the quaint peacefulness comes from, with faith is where we have hope for anything, then when the waters become churned up, the storm will never last as with Jesus it will only be a passing storm that will cleanse the earth of all the bad, leaving nothing but good with the bright sunshine of all our love at every turn of this journey. May the peace of God be with you always, as the love of Jesus Christ within our hearts and souls shines as brightly as the sun on a clear day, so we all can walk our paths in peace and walk this journey together in harmony with each other throughout the world, leaving the ugliness of Satan and all the viruses behind us forever throughout this journey.

 

” National day of Prayer so we all can heal from the ugliness and become one with each other, while we renew the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls”

 

” True the waters can be churned up and become ugly, but with the faith of Jesus he can be the bridge to help us cross the churned-up waters”

 

” The forty-day journey is for us all to renew ourselves with Jesus, so we can cleanse ourselves of all the ugliness that has consumed us”

 

” With faith, we will always have the hope to get through anything that may try to knock us off course and avoid the bumps and bruises that Satan may try to inflict on us”

 

 

40-day journey well worth any sacrifice

 

 

da9b9-lent_2013_40days

 

With yet another Lenten season upon us and as the 40-day journey has begun with us going to church and having the ashes placed on our foreheads, let us all sacrifice something within our lives much the same as Jesus did, showing our faith in the Lord and we haven’t forgotten what he did for us all when he walked his journey here with us.

Jesus also walked this 40-day journey and was confronted by many a temptation, with the biggest temptation coming from Satan himself. We like Jesus get tempted by the power of temptation many times through this journey but as Jesus kept the faith in his father as well as himself, showed to us all that even with the power of temptation bearing down on our souls, when we stay true to who we are when we keep the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, we to can overcome all temptation and no matter how hard we struggle, we can walk our paths through this journey of life, better and stronger and reach for the stars as there is no force strong enough to conquer us as we move forward, just as Jesus did throughout the 40-day journey.

The Lenten season is one of the most special times of the year, but if you have lost all faith in yourself and Jesus Christ, have become a non-believer in any kind of higher power,  then this time of year will have you wondering with no direction and susceptible to any kind of temptation that may come your way. Temptation is a very powerful force that will control everything in its path, yes it can suck you in but it will also spit you out just as fast and it really does not care for the condition it may leave you. We all will be tempted by each other as well. we see one with a lifestyle you dream of, then wonder why you can not have the same? We may try but then end up with much more issues then we can handle, when we just simply be who we truly are, sacrifice when we need to move forward better, so we then can have the strength to resist all temptation that may knock us down and keep us stepping backward instead of moving forward.

Temptation is quite simply Satan trying to take control of us all as well as everything else within this world, temptation at times will come with a sugar coating surrounded by whip cream and cherries, it will promise us the world but never deliver on its promise. When we stay true to who we are, resist all that the temptation may bring to us, never lose the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, then we can resist and conquer all that temptation may bring to us, so we may prosper and walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness that God envisioned for us all. You can clearly see within this society of today, that there are so many that have given in to temptation, so many that have lost the faith in themselves as well as Jesus Christ and because of that we are all traveling in so many directions, that we all have lost our way and there is no GPS made that will bring us back in the right direction, only Jesus himself can do this, but as we have let Satan control us through the temptations, we do not even give Jesus a thought, let alone even having any faith at all.

So as we walk yet another 40-day journey through lent, let us walk it with a purpose, let us walk it with meaning, as we sacrifice as Jesus did, learn that when we resist the temptation that not all is lost and the world will not end, as with the total belief in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, we can get back to who we truly are, we can get back to walking our paths with confidence, so this journey through life will have a meaning once again, it will have a true direction without wandering in circles, through temptation we become stripped from being of who we truly are and lose sight of what this journey is really about. With the total belief in ourselves and Jesus Christ, we then can truly find that path of righteousness, which Jesus told us about as he walked this journey with us, but right now as we have become overwhelmed with the power of temptation, we are all walking in so many different directions, that we have lost the sight of true reality which will lead us nowhere and further away from, having any faith in ourselves or Jesus Christ.

That old saying of, ” keeping up with the Jones” is so far from the truth, but as we become tempted to do so, we find that what may be good for one, may not be good for another. This journey is full of many paths as well as many temptations, but the only way to walk this journey confidently is, to be truly of who we are and to have complete faith in Jesus Christ, as he showed us in his 40-day journey, just how much he loved us, by the true sacrifice he made for each one of us. It is not about forcing oneself and your beliefs on each other, as it is totally about loving one another, no matter of what may cross our paths and when we walk our paths correctly, then this journey through life will be that of peace and happiness for us all, so as we take stock in our lives in this Lenten season, let us all throw out what we do not need and sacrifice these things, so we then can move forward with what is important, as we then follow the lead of Jesus Christ, away from all temptation, to be better moving forward and as we show respect, dignity, and love toward one another always, throughout this journey of life.

 

” The season of lent is one of sacrifice, much like Jesus did while he showed his true love toward all”

 

” During the season of Lent, we should take stock in our lives sacrifice what we do not need and move forward better with only what we need”

 

” 40 days and 40 nights to get back to who we truly are and move forward better and stronger”

 

” Temptation is a strong force but we are stronger when we stay true to who we are”
