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”

Advent…The coming of Jesus Christ

Digital Camera

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

Isaiah 63:17;64:4

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

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

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

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

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

The 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 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”

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”

 

 

 

Follow Jesus and be enlightened throughout this journey

” Come after me, and I will make you Fishers of men”

Mt: 4:19

 

 

 

We of this society would rather live in frustration for what we can not do than to truly follow and have complete faith in Jesus Christ, for he will truly lead us and never lead us astray anywhere on our paths of this journey. We of this society think that success comes from stepping on another’s shine, but true success comes from true faith in Jesus Christ to lead us to the path of righteousness, so we all can have hope moving forward with strength and be true of who we are.

Jesus Christ did not come here for himself, he came here for you and me to prosper on this journey, but yet we all within this society have gone the complete opposite of what he taught us as he walked his journey. We of this society think that we can do better at everything, that we do not need help with anything, we also think we are smarter than all those who have walked before us? We are all so confused within this society that we have lost the faith of everything that is good, which now leaves us with no hope moving forward through all the hatred around us.

This world today is so full of ugliness and hatred only because we have lost all faith in not just ourselves, but lost all faith in Jesus Christ our savior. This quote today is more than just what you may think of as being a Fishermen when you become a fisher of men, you have opened your heart and soul to Jesus Christ, you truly believe with true faith that Jesus is good and will never lead you astray, so now as you follow Jesus with your heart, you can then lead others to the same promise land, that Jesus has led you to as well. No matter how troubled you think you are, with the true faith and belief in Jesus Christ, you will always have the hope for a better and smoother path, as you walk through this journey of life.

No matter where you go throughout this planet, you can see all the corruption, you can see all the ugliness and hate, this is just how sad this society truly is today, it only goes to show just how many have lost all faith in themselves as well as Jesus Christ, which now leaves us with no hope moving forward and for those who still have the true faith, makes it that much harder for them to walk forward with confidence throughout this journey. Our so-called leaders can not truly lead anymore, even some who wear the cloth has lost this faith and have become corrupt with great ugliness, when all around us have become engulfed in this corruption, ugliness, and hatred, then where do we turn? We turn to Jesus Christ and reach down deep within, to truly feel his love for each of us, his love is always deep within our hearts and souls, just that we need to have complete trust in him, so we then can have complete faith and the hope will follow us all, all we need to do is, not only reach down deep within, but totally acknowledge Jesus, so he then can help us all no matter how troubled you think you are.

We all may walk our own paths, but the journey we walk them in is all the same, we all start out the same, then our paths bring us to different locations as some may intersect at different times, then we all have the same ending to this journey, but the biggest part is the fact that the time in the middle is where we all go wrong, especially when we lose touch with everything around us, lose touch with ourselves and most of all, lose touch with Jesus Christ our Savior. When we truly acknowledge Jesus and love him as he loves us, then no matter what trouble that may come to you, then our faith will never leave us as we will all move forward with the hope, to walk this journey in peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” A fisherman will catch the fish for all to eat and not starve, as a fisher of men will gather all in the love of Jesus to move forward to be better and stronger”

 

” Out of frustration we may do things not truly of who we are, out of love we can truly be of who we are”

 

” Corruption, ugliness and hatred are signs from Satan, as love comes from Jesus to help us grow in a positive way”

 

 

 

Even a Background has it’s Background

 

Just as this picture has a beautiful background full of tree’s and mountains, a  society with all its occupants has it’s background as well. There are so many backgrounds it can be very overwhelming to comprehend, not just we the people of a society have the background to live with, but everything around us has their backgrounds to live with as well, the background is part of our past whether we like it or not?

Now some backgrounds may come with much pain and hurt and some may be as smooth as silk? But the background is a background and they do not have to dictate how we walk our paths through this journey of life. Sometimes things happen in our past whether with our own actions or the actions of another towards us, then as we try to move forward, that makes our past become our background, whether we accept it or not? When we do not accept it and do not fix what we need to fix, now our futures become cluttered with self-doubt, lack of faith in ourselves with no hope, as we try to walk our paths. You can never erase any past no matter what, as the past is part of our background and will never go away. Now if you try to wipe out a past without addressing the background, then you will have many trying to move forward with a lot of unnecessary pain and hurt, not too mention trying to move forward not being true of who you are.

We all have a past that becomes our background with many issues and stuff we may not be proud of, but if we never address these issues and fix what we need to fix, now we have a society with many backgrounds that the pain and hurt becomes so great, we will do anything to rid ourselves from the pain, even if we then become someone for who we are not. There are a lot of good backgrounds out there, but yet there are many backgrounds that none of us can ever be proud of, with that said……… There is no background that can not be fixed, so we then can move forward better and stronger.

Throughout this society of backgrounds and pasts, we will never hold ourselves accountable whether the background was from our own actions or the actions of another, so instead, we then hide very deeply within a background that we are ashamed of, then let the shame of it all, take complete control of ourselves moving forward, when we are shamed into going into hiding, not only do we become fake on the outside, we also become fake on the inside, which then has us losing the feeling of our true emotions, to keep further pain and hurt from coming to us.

To some point, we all within this society have been shamed at one time or another, we all have at least one thing in our pasts that keep us hiding our background from each other, while we let the shame control of who we truly are. Shame is very like Denial and they both go hand and hand, they both will have you become part of a world that is not real, a world that you yourself try to make it as real as you can only to escape all the pain and hurt from the real reality. We become so lost along our paths that we never truly fix what we need, so we can truly move forward in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

What is truly in the background you ask? There are many different backgrounds within this society and we all have very different backgrounds from each other which makes us all unique to each other. Some backgrounds are not all good with much happiness, most backgrounds come with great pain and hurt, which then has us hiding in plain sight, just to try to escape all the pain and hurt, then through all the pain and hurt we then suffer from the shame and denial of these backgrounds, without trying to fix what we need to move forward in peace, so we then move forward with how we think is the best way, which is the burying of our true feelings and emotions, becoming someone we truly are not, as we then portray ourselves as okay, when in reality we are not.

The many facets of a background may come in many ways and within a society of many, now there are many backgrounds all around, but what we tend to overlook is, a background can be adjusted with the right fix, just that we have to want the fix, so we then can move forward along our paths, throughout this journey of life to be better and stronger with each step we take.

 

” A background is a past and you just can not erase a past to make the background better”

 

” Even Natures background isn’t all Roses, it to will come with some tragic events as well”

 

” We all have our backgrounds and we all have our pasts, they do not have to dictate how we walk through this journey of life”
