The many Changes throughout this journey of life

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

Psalm 46:1

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

Billy Graham

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The many journeys

” We all walk a path through this journey of life, we tend to forget that along the path are many smaller journeys that make up the bigger journey for us to be better and stronger moving forward”

***BowlingChef***

We all have our own likes and dislikes, and the only way for us to find out what they are, is to explore everything around us, so we can find out just what those likes and dislikes really are. There are so many things to chat about in order to determine what you like or dislike? The only one that can determine this, is you yourself. others may support you, or they may guide you, but ultimately, it is you, who truly knows what you like or dislike, as others can only speculate, or simply just give you ideas.

Yes we all walk this big journey called life, but within this journey are so many paths to choose from, we can become so overwhelmed, that quite frequently we will choose the wrong path, and as we keep choosing many paths, can and will become so lost within this big journey, that we then stop walking and start wandering, with no true direction of where we are going? It is okay to explore other paths, as this is the way we find what is the true path for us, not everybody will walk the same path, as we all have very different likes and dislikes. Yes we need to explore each path to find out if it is the right path, but when we get to deep into the path and lose sight of how to get back to the crossroad that turned us down this path, now we become lost along this journey, as now the clouds of our judgments have clouded what is in front of us.

This journey through life will also throw us curve balls, it will also have these life events that come to us. These events are very different to each of us, they are also either very hard to deal with or very miniscule and easy to deal with, yes they can control us as well, and when we let them control us, now we become someone for who we truly are not. These life events are part of life and yes they can come to us by another, who want nothing but to control us moving forward. So as you become lost within this journey, the only way to truly find your way back, is to keep exploring other paths, and stop hiding within yourself, for this does nothing but keep you wandering, without truly walking a path of this journey through life.

Everybody has their own way of dealing with the ups and downs this journey brings to us, some may find different ways to explore and clean the cobwebs that life will bring to us, for me, I love the outdoors and exploring all it has, plus the getting away from the rat race for even a short time, helps with the healing of the mind, body and soul. Mother Nature has her way of giving you a different outlook of what is around you. It is when you do not explore what life has out there, now you continue down a path, that is not really for you, and you then become bitter and unhappy, as you walk through this journey. The more bitter you become, the more hatred you develop, as you can clearly see all the hatred within this society we all walk our paths within.

Hiking, off grid camping, kayaking, these are great outlets to totally relax and clear the cobwebs, now true some may not like these, but there are so many more outlets, you just have to explore and find the right outlet for you. These outlets will help us refocus, determine things we have forgotten about, so we can get to truly of who we are, then get back to walking with confidence, along the path of this journey through life. Now some may not want us to remember any history, but it is the history we need to remember, so we don’t repeat it moving forward, plus it is the history, that helps us glance back and fix what we need to fix, as we move forward better and stronger, while we escape within Mother Nature and heal ourselves, not too mention, look at all the true beauty all around you.

Look out into the horizon, it may seem endless at first glance, but as we grow and learn correctly along this journey, we find many horizons for us to explore. Whether your looking at a horizon from the top of a mountain, as you paddle a kayak along the river, or maybe sit along the sandy shoreline and staring into the ocean, the place we look into the horizon may be different, as each path we walk, but the horizon is all the same, just like this journey through life we all walk together. There are so many similarities all around us, but if we do not truly see them, then all will always be different, no matter how we look at them. When your path is full of bumps that will bruise you and leave a scar, it becomes all about how you get up from the fall, dust yourself off, heal the bruises correctly, so you than can move forward better then you were. Some may get right back up like nothing happened, while others either never get up, or take a very long time to get up, it is not about the time it takes you to get up, it is about how you get up from the fall, how you stay true to who you are, without hiding within yourself, and never really reaching your true potential.

There are so many little journeys within the even bigger journey we all walk, the key, is for us all to explore and find the right one that best fits us, then excel within that journey, so we can be truly of who we are, so when we walk our path we choose, we actually do the work of clearing that path of the obstructions, so we can move forward better and stronger, within the peace and happiness we all so need and deserve, as we walk through this journey of life.

” This journey comes with many ups and downs that will knock you down and bruise you, which then makes it of how you pick yourself up and heal from the bruises of life”

” Just as you look deeply into the Abyss, look deeply into the horizon and ask yourself, of just how to get to that point and explore all that comes before you”

The Super bowl now has seven rings

” The journey to the top of the mountain, is a strenuous one, much like reaching the pinnacle of your career, within the world of sports”

*** BowlingChef***

Super Bowl Sunday, we all witnessed an Individual setting the bar so high, at the position he play’s, that we may never in our lifetimes, see this done again. I am not saying it will never be duplicated, but this kind of stuff is a once in a lifetime kind of stuff. Tom Brady is the Quarter Back, and he is greatness personified. Tom was drafted by the New England Patriots in the 6th round, at pick number 199? So to say this was predicted is not even in the mention, nobody could of predicted this, not even Tom himself. Tom worked very hard everyday to perfect his craft, not just in the Pro’s, but even as a young child, now it is true that, he might of been a gifted Athlete, seeing he was also drafted in baseball as well, but this gift just doesn’t happen, as the Individual needs to put the work in, to perfect the craft he seeks. We all, if we put in the work, can achieve some success in whatever we want, maybe not quite like Tom, but we also can be successful at whatever we want.

When Tom was here in New England, we all know about his work ethnic, he was first in the building in the morning, and last to leave in the evening, he studied multiple tapes and video, time in the gym, on the practice field, many reps at everything it took, to make him perfect his craft. Tom’s greatness did not happen overnight, it took a lot of years, starting from a very young age. This wasn’t all him, as when he was young, he needed great support from his family, especially from his Mom and Dad, They could of steered him in a different direction, but instead, they guided him to follow his passion, and we all know just how much passion, Tom has for the sport of football.

Passion is deep within us all, but if we do not release it, we will never know our true potential. We all work our current 9 to 5’s, but how many of us have a true passion for what we do? Exactly!!! not many and Tom Brady is one that does. Not having passion for what we do, explains all the bitterness out there, the jealousy of each other, which then is followed by the hate of each other. You seen all the big smiles and then followed by big joy after the game by the Buccaneer’s, this was from them achieving their passion and becoming the winner of the Super Bowl, as the NFL’s best team. Then you saw sorrow, sadness, bitterness, some forgetting about the passion and letting their emotions, take them to a very ugly place, just because they didn’t win the Super Bowl, sports can be very emotional on both sides, whether happy or sad, this is what the competitive nature of each player, will bring to each other.

Being competitive is what gives each player, the drive to bring out the passion of their craft, this is how great players are made, and how they achieve the greatness within their sport. The ones who have no drive, or have no competitive spirit, these are the ones who do not last in the sport they play, guys like Tom Brady, Zedna Chara, Patrice Bergeron to name a few, totally have the drive and competitive spirit, not to mention, the passion of the game they play. You can not teach this passion, it is totally up to the player to let the passion, flow throughout their blood. The hard work, the drive, the enjoyment of what you do, the competition, are all the factors, of what it takes to release the passion throughout your veins, as it turns to the blood and who you become moving forward.

Sometimes the mountain top may seem to high, or maybe too difficult and you just walk away from attempting it, but if you do not attempt it, if you do not find the competition in it, if you can not find the passion to take that first step, now you will never see the true beauty that the summit holds for you, you will never let any passion, flow through your veins, as it turns into the blood that drives you everyday. Tom Brady has become more then just a 7 time Super Bowl Champion, more than just an Individual on a field playing a game, more than a person that works very hard to succeed at his craft, Tom has become an Icon to not just all of us, but an Icon for the many children looking up to him and to try to be like him, and even more, he has become an inspiration to us all, from this point on, as he as well as all of us, move forward, on our paths, throughout this journey of life.

” The journey to the top is never easy, but with hard work and passion, anything will seem easy over time”

” Passion is deep within us all and when we unleash it, the sky is the limit as to what we can achieve”

The Swamp Creatures within to release its great talents

You think by the title I may write of the swamp within Washington DC? Why waste two great pictures within Mother Nature. Even Mother Nature has swamps within it, the difference is, mother nature takes care of them so they can thrive, within Washington DC, the ones within that swamp only takes care of themselves and totally forgets of all those around them. Not that I want many getting out within mother nature to take away all the beauty I come across on my journey’s, but within this screwed up society only proves further that, a high percentage of us, have totally forgotten and taken for granted, all the true beauty within mother nature.

No matter where you go within mother nature, there is so much beauty with every turn, not just all the plant life, or the landscapes, but there are many wild animals that roam within mother nature, these animals call mother nature their home, just like we have homes and want others to respect our homes, we to need to respect their homes, while we are out there within mother nature. The beauty of mother nature is everywhere around us, even as we drive to our jobs, but sadly we take this so for granted, that we do not look at it as being within mother nature, instead, because we are so caught up in all the ugliness, we see no beauty.

With another Veterans day upon us, let us take the time to thank a Veteran, for it is the veterans that keep us free to do as we want within this country, there are some that do show respect to our Veterans, but there are some who totally take them for granted, as not only do they not thank a Veteran, but they can’t see what they do for each and every one of us. A real Veteran will never see a swamp and see it as ugly, he will do what he has to, in order to clean it, so it’s future will be nothing but beauty for all.

“The one who had received five talents came forward bringing the additional five. He said, Master, you gave me five talents. See, I have made five more”

Mt: 25;20

We all in this society and as we walk through this journey, have special talents, we all have a purpose as we walk this journey, but unless we find that purpose, we will never unlock the talents that are within us, and without the purpose, we then will never not only show our talents, but we will never bring our talents to the next level, like building more talents upon the talents that are already within us. In order to truly find your purpose and your talents, you need the confidence within you and the confidence in Jesus Christ, so you can move forward along this journey and find that purpose, the problem within this society is a lot of us have lost that confidence and have lost of who we truly are, while we are all lost and within the clouds of our judgments, we will never see any beauty around us, we become full of fear that brings us much pain, as we never see us for who we are, we will never see anything around for what it truly is as well.

This journey through life is like that when we do not take care of ourselves as we should, when we truly take care of ourselves, fix what we need to fix, not only will we ourselves be better moving forward, everything around us will become better as well. This year of 2020 has been a very challenging year in so many different ways, with all the ugliness that has come across all our paths through this journey, proves that we all need to take care of ourselves, so we then move forward with each other, to become better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

When we take care of ourselves and see the talents within us that Jesus has supplied us with, we will then find that confidence that he sees in us, and bring that confidence out, to let the talents shine brightly as we walk our paths, as now those talents will help us achieve many more talents throughout our lives. The success for each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life is endless, with the confidence in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, then all our talents will shine as bright as the sun on it’s best day, which will then have us find many more talents to shine even brighter, so we all can move forward in the peace and happiness, that Jesus showed us when he came and walked this journey here with us.

We all have talents within us, these talents will help us find our purpose here within this journey, then as we find this purpose and our talents within, we will then find that there are many more talents for us to unlock within this journey as well, all we need is to have that confidence in ourselves, that confidence in Jesus Christ as well, so as we walk this journey through life, then the true success for each of us will be endless and all this ugliness we see today will disappear, as there will be no room for it to exist anymore. Just as Mother Nature has it’s true beauty for us to see, there is no better beauty than the beauty within each of us, especially when we are confident, release our true talents, and have found our purpose in life, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” A true talent goes a lot deeper then any kind of sporting or singing type of talent”

” The beauty of mother nature is definitely beautiful, but the beauty within us all is so much more precious and special”

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

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”

 

 

 

 

Sometimes the best precaution is…………..” common sense”

I guess you can say that I am with Mark Levin on this one, Mark is a V-Jay on the Blaze with Glen Beck, saying that he would rather take the advice of a healthcare official and not from Pelosi or Schumer. It is pretty sad when our so called leaders have to politicize even a virus, simply because they are so far in denial, they can not see the true reality of anything they look at. Now in this day and age with all the technology and social platforms, it is very true that everything spreads like wildfire in every direction around us, tragedies and natural disasters can be seen within minutes on all the social platforms, then you add in a media that will stop at nothing to achieve their big drama agendas, now you will have anything the size of a mogul, turn into the size of a mountain or even bigger.

Now I get the fact that this Coronavirus is crippling countries with many lives being lost, but unlike what some on the left are saying, there are safety measures being taken by all the countries, but what we of today simply forget is, when we use our common sense, we then don’t need our Governments to dictate what we should do and only aid us all to be safe moving forward. This Coronavirus is spreading around the world kind of like the virus of 1918, true 99% of us were not around then and maybe very few are still here from that time, but either way, we are not going to remember what happened 102 years ago, which makes it that much more important to glance back to move forward better and stronger, as the virus from 1918 took the lives of 50,000,000 people and what the media of today will not tell you is, both these viruses originated in China, so what is wrong with knowing the truth, so we can truly help fix what we need to fix, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life.

Very true there have been many more diseases and viruses that have overcome us throughout the history of us all walking through this journey of life, so instead of being like those on the far left and pointing the finger of blame in any way that they can for their agendas, maybe we should take a look back within history from time to time, so we then can be a bit more informed, use the common sense that is within us all, as we all move forward and not backward, throughout this journey of life. Yes within this society of great technology and the fact that we the people can be so dumb, that instead of using our social media platforms for good and informing us ahead of time for what may be coming, instead, we let the far-left liberal media dictate to us through their platforms of all the drama of everything, whether that drama be true or “Fake”. It is never too late to change what we may be doing, as change is also a huge part of this journey, the change will come to us in many different ways and when we accept change and adapt to the change, then the change shouldn’t be all that scary and come with minimal pain to us all, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Change can scare the crap out of us all, it can bring great pain as well, but when we accept and adapt to it properly can be just as beautiful than this journey of life”

 

” Precaution is kind of like preventive medicine, we document it within our brains and let common sense do its thing”

 

” Sometimes we need to glance back in time to adjust and fix what we may be doing wrong now moving forward”
