Create the plan, then work that plan

” Jesus summoned the twelve and began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over unclean spirits”

Mk 6:7

God didn’t just create all that is around us on a whim, he had a plan and he carried out that plan. What he never planned on was, the way we have taken his plan for granted, as we just move forward with our own intentions, whether how right or wrong those intentions are. God’s plan was for us all to live together in unity, so we could carry on with the creation of God and live in peace. God had help with his plan, as his son Jesus came to us and taught us many things, so we can continue to stay in unity, so we can prosper in many ways, there were many others like Moses, who came to lead us into the path of righteousness, but still today we venture away from that path and separate ourselves from each other, which now the ugliness of Satan has come to try to take us away from all the good.

There has been many who have walked this journey, who have tried to divide us and take us away from the good of this journey, but the good has always won out, simply because through good there is unity, and with unity there is strength in numbers, with evil comes division, as now you are alone to fight off the bad, which brings you much pain and hurt. God knows that none of us are perfect and we do make mistakes, but through his son’s journey here with us, he taught us how stay true to ourselves, stay true to Jesus Christ, so we then can have the faith and keep all hope right in front of us, as we walk our paths together, so the journey becomes peaceful, with much joy and happiness for us all.

Within this society of today, there are many trying really hard to divide us, so they can seek all the power over all. They will do anything they can for us to fear everything around us, so we look to them to lead us further into the darkness. What has been happening for many years now, especially the last couple years, has been nothing short of some, trying to gain all the power over each and every one of us. When we stay strong and true to ourselves, with the faith in Jesus Christ, then we will bring that to each other, so we all can stand up to the fear, see through the darkness, come together in unity and truly see the light at the horizon, as we keep moving forward toward that light and out of the darkness. Then we can get back to the peace of God and his plan he had for us all.

There is this trail here in the east known as the Appalachian trail, this trail takes a lot of careful planning, so you can walk the 2100 plus miles of this trail. With the right planning, setting up your replenishment spots along the trail, being prepared with the proper items within your pack and plenty of water to keep hydrated, now with the water it may be hard to actually carry the weight of all the water needed, so now you need to at least bring an empty bottle with a screw top, so you can have a filter sytem that screws onto the bottle, and as you fill the bottle with fresh water from the clean mountain streams, you now can drink clean water through the filter and stay plenty hydrated along the trail. There comes a lot of careful planning with this trail, mapping out the route, getting to the nightly rest areas to set camp for the night for a much needed sleep for the next days journey, when all is properly planned it makes for a safe and happy journey, but when it is not planned out correctly and your not prepared with the right items in your pack, this can make for a very bad and painful journey, with much hurt that can come to you for a very long time as well.

Jesus had his followers go out with a partner so they can show that, when there is another walking side by side, we can go much further and walk with confidence within the darkness, to reach the light on the other side. We can do so much more along this journey, when we come together in unity. We can work together on a plan, then come together and work that plan with confidence. Everything we do has a plan, just that Satan also has a plan, with his plan being, bring as much darkness to us all, so we fear everything that comes before us along our path. The fear is what keeps us from working the plan, as we know hide within, to try to stay away from all the pain and hurt of the darkness. This is what some among us want, they want us to get away from our plans and follow them with their sick twisted plans, to lead us further into the darkness and away from the light of Jesus Christ,

God had a plan when he created all this beauty around us, he wanted us to truly see this journey, as we create the plan the best we can to walk our paths through this journey, with much peace and happiness with each step. There are many plans being made all around us, so if we get caught up in the wrong plan, this could have us within great pain and fear, that will keep us from seeing the light of the right plan, to be one together in unity, so we all can walk our paths side by side, within the great plan that God made for us all. May we all come together in unity and create a great plan within the faith of Jesus Christ, as the hope for a well walked journey comes to us all, away from all the ugliness of Satan, as we see all the beauty of God, to continue in his peace, love and happiness, he envisioned for us all with the plan of his creation.

” First we must create a plan as God made a plan of his creation, then we work that plan as best we can Like God did, to be within all the beauty of that plan”

” There are good plans and there are bad plans, as we stay true to ourselves with the faith in Jesus Christ, then those plans are good and the ones we need to work as best we can”

Statue of Liberty for all

” If the son makes you free, you shall be free indeed”

John 8:36

” America is free because of the brave”

Bowlingchef

We all celebrate a birthday each year of our existence, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, so does this great country that America is celebrate her birthday each year since the creation of America. There may be many that want to come here to escape the perils of their Homelands, some may want to sneak onto the lands here in America and go unseen, there are rules to live by, so if you follow the rules, then you can be as free as you want and free to do as you do, while walking your path. Just as we have the Statue of Liberty here in America, symbolizing freedom, there is also a statue of Liberty on the hill outside Jerusalem, that lights the way toward eternal life. There are many statues throughout this country of America, with each on being a symbol of different times in the history of America. There have been many throughout the history of America that have given there all, so we today can be as free as we are, to do as we do everyday, all the statues are a tribute to these brave souls, that have given their all and paid the ultimate sacrifice for this country that America has become.

America needs its people more than ever now, so we can be as strong in the future, as we were is the past of this country, so America can celebrate many more birthdays to come. There is much ugliness right now in the world, and through this ugliness, there are some trying really hard to take down this country of America. As we the people of America unite and stand as one, without becoming divided as those who are trying to take us over wants us to be, we will show them that there is strength in numbers and they will lose if they bring harm to this great country. I get the fact that we are all equal in the eyes of God, no matter where your homeland may be? But you will always have good and evil, no matter where you travel throughout this world. Through evil there are some that will brainwash you with their sick and twisted ideologies, so they can achieve all the power, control and wealth throughout the world, sometimes it may seem like evil will win as it seems like it is everywhere, but God is everywhere and when we stay true to who we are, with the faith in God, good will always win over evil, especially when we all come together as one, just as the brave souls did, throughout the history of America, as now we here in America are as free as we want, to do freely what we do everyday.

America is the land of opportunity for all, while we are as free as we want, while we find the best opportunity that fits us perfectly. I get the fact that some may see otherwise as they may “think” they are less of, but they only think this way simply because, they have given up and are now looking for a handout. There are no handouts here in America, you want freedom, then you are going to have to work hard for it, as freedom isn’t free and does come with a price, just look back in the history of America, at all the brave souls, who have paid the ultimate sacrifice, so we today can be as free as we are. You have to work hard for any freedom, as the early Settlers did that came to America. They had to work at building a trust with the Natives that were already here, they had to build their communities grow their crops and learn of the new land they have come to. These are the ones who blazed the trails for us today, as we walk our paths through this journey. Now as America grew throughout this land, so did the people as well, as they had their families and others who may have heard and came to this land as well, now America will have its hardest test, how will we all work together in creating this land of freedom, that America has become? Yes you will have some who will try to disrupt and bring their twisted ways to the land, but when America stands tall, stands as one, the good will always win over evil, as America then survives for yet another birthday celebration, of joy and happiness.

America the beautiful and yes it is truly beautiful, with many areas standing tall and proud. America has so many resources among it, with the best resource being the people within this great country. There have been so many who have blazed the trails throughout America, these are the ones, through their blood, sweat and tears, worked very hard, to make our lives today that much easier. There are so many natural resources as well, that we here in America can survive greatly throughout the future. America also has had some great Leaders, who have helped bring us into the future better and stronger and yes, there have also been failed leadership that tried to bring this country down as well throughout her history, as you can see, America is still here and stronger than ever, cause the good always out weighs the bad, as America moves forward into the future, year after year. We the people of this country here in America, are our own worst enemies at times, some will divide us with their sick twisted ideologies, their twisted agendas, they will try to seek all the power, control and greed that they can, then they will try to force us away from truly being of who we are, so they can prosper over the rest of us. This is the situation in front of us now, we need to stand tall together, unite as one, so those who seek to divide us, will fail and go off into that goodnight, so the real America will prevail, as we walk our paths through this journey, as free as we want, to do as we want, while we enjoy all the true beauty that America has to offer.

May the real America stand up? I have the faith in this country that America will always stand tall, no matter what may come her way? True what is going on in this country may seem overwhelming? Buit if you look back in history, what is going on, has been tried before and failed. Then you have Leaders of other countries who want world dominence, and will do whatever they can to achieve it, this also has been tried throughout the history of the world, but some among us, want to take away all the history, so we have nothing to look back at, as we move forward better and stronger. When we glance back at the what was, we then can move forward with the what ifs, to be better with each step along our paths. For America to truly grow moving forward, we the people within this country, need to grow moving forward. America is as strong as its people, and when the people are weak, this is what makes this country ripe for a take over, from any other country within this world. Through weakness is division and when we are divided we then become ripe for others to walk all over us and our paths. When we unite as one and come together, this is how we build strength moving forward, when we reach out and help one another no matter who you may be, as we walk our paths through this journey, this is how you build strength and when we are strong, then there is no country that will come mess with this great country that America is.

America will always be one generation away from extinction, just like each and every country throughout this world. The way each generation is raised and walks their paths of this journey, will determine of how we walk together in unity, so with all the technology out there and the way we stay behind it, with no interaction of each other anymore? This scares the hell out of me, and should scare the hell out of you as well, cause now all our futures and the what ifs, now look bleak as we all become victims of all our realities. It is time to stand tall and unite together, step away from the devices and interact with each other, so we all can move forward better and stronger throughout this journey. May God Bless this world, may God bless this great country of America, and may God bless each one of us, as we come together in unity, to walk our paths in peace, throughout this journey of life.

” Freedom is never free and comes with a price, but the price we pay for it is all worth it when you are free to do as you do and not rely on another to tell you what to do”

” A birthday comes every year, even a country will have a birthday, so as you may grow older each year, you are suppose to become better and stronger with each birthday”

The true light of Salvation

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

John 4:15

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

Corinthians 4:4

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Through Joy comes Happiness

” The joy of the Lord is our strength”

Nehemiah 8:10

Just like through faith there will be hope, the same is for, to be truly happy, you need to have true joy. The joy is deep within our souls and is what makes us happy on the outside. You may be smiling on the exterior, but do you have true joy, or is that a fake smile on your face, hiding the fact that, you are truly hurting deep within your soul? I think in this broken society, we have confused what happiness and joy are to us? Happiness is a feeling on our exterior, as joy is a feeling deep within our interior. Happiness is that smile on your face, that when something happens in a positive way, brings a smile, but to truly bring a smile of joy, then that positive needs to touch our souls deep within. We can not be truly happy, unless the joy in our souls, is truly happy as well. Jesus taught us this also, just that through time, we have lost that teaching, and have confused the difference between the two.

We all put on that ” happy face” whenever we are with each other, but is that a true happy face, or is that the fake smile that we have perfected over time? A true smile will make us truly happy, when we feel the warmth of joy within our soul, which will bring us true happiness as we walk our paths of this journey through life. We all go through many trying times that will bring us many issues, these are known as the troubling times of life, these times will rob us of our true happiness, but they can never rob us, of the joy within our souls, which comes from God and unless we acknowledge his faith within us. You will never really know the true joy within your soul, especially if you do not enter into the doors of the Lord, then accept his faith, as you then find that faith of yourself, to do whatever you want to, along your path of this journey. We of this society have confused the two, as we have combined them as the same, instead of looking at them as they truly are, Joy is within the soul, and happiness is that smile we put on our face.

Without truly feeling the warmth of joy within our souls, we will never truly put on that happy face, as we portray a fake self to those around us. Then with all the fakness going on, how can we be true to ourselves, let alone one another? Quick!!! Someone is coming, put on that fake smile, then as they leave, out comes the real face, the face of sadness, from all the pain and hurt deep within. The more we keep hiding from one another, the more this society stays within this fake world. When we really put our happy face on, really feel the warmth of the joy deep within our soul, now we all can be not just in true happiness, but we all can be within the true peace as well, the peace and happiness that Jesus showed us, as he walked his path, through this journey of life.

This journey through life has so many paths, it also brings us many facets within those paths as well, but when we walk our paths correctly and truly of who we are, then we will not put on that “fake” smile, cause we will not have to, as the warmth of the joy in our souls, will warm us all, with our true smiles of happiness, shining brighter then the sun, on a bright sunny day. I get the fact that this journey and others around us, will bring these things known as ” life events” to us, yes they will control us if we let them, but if we only could see through them, just maybe we can get around them easier, so we could never lose of who we truly are. When we are truly of who we are not, we then bury everything deep within our souls as it goes cold, the warmth within our hearts, that is the blood of Jesus goes cold as well, then as we try to keep the pain and hurt from hurting us further, we stop aknowledging them and even worse, we stop entering into the house of the Lord, that helps us stay true to who we are.

This journey through life is more than just an outward appearence, it is more about what is deep within us, as we then bring it towards one another. We can keep putting on that fake smile, but is that really fixing what is going on within us? If we never acknowledge what is truly within us, then our exterior will be full of many holes, as all those around us will see right through us. We all have a heart, as we all have a soul, but unless we use them and use them correctly, then this journey really will never change for any of us, life is a constent battle, but when we stay on top of that battle, then life will never become a war, making it very difficult for anyone to walk their paths within. When we stay on top of the paths we walk, while staying true to who we are, we will always feel the warmth of the blood of Jesus warming our hearts, we will always feel the warmth of joy within our souls, as now we will never have to use those fake smiles anymore, cause they will not be of any use anymore. To be truly happy is to really feel the warmth of the joy within your soul, so just like we share the love of Jesus within us with each other, we also will bring the true joy within us, to all those around us also, as we smile a true smile of happiness, everyday as we walk our paths, through this journey of life.

Right now in this society, we have let the battles become a war, with all the ugliness and the division around us. We can end this war around us very simply, we can end all this fakness around us as well, just that we have to want it bad enough, change what we have become, get back to truly of who we are, so the love and the blood of Jesus can warm our hearts again, let the warmth of joy warm our souls, as the real smiles come back to our faces. When the true warmth of this journey comes back to us, that is when we all walk our paths in the peace, joy and happiness of Jesus Christ, throughout this journey of life.

” The joy is within our souls, as the happiness that comes from that joy, brings a true smile to our faces”

” Faith is to hope, like joy is to happiness, we just need to acknowledge them, to truly feel them deep within us”

The Miracles of life will always be there within us

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

Mk 5:39

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

With faith, the storm will never last

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

Mk 4:39-40

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Brevity of Life

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

James 4:14

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Be Free


“Draw near to God and he will draw near to you”

James 4:8

You ever get your hand stuck inside a vase, then call for help to get it out, the help says for you to outstretch your hand, as they try to pull the vase from your hand, but you say back to them, if I do that then I drop whatever it is within my hand? We of this society are very similar to this situation, we are so afraid to let go, so we can be free from whatever it is that is holding us back.

We of this society will let fear of anything control who we truly are, this fear will stop us from moving forward and keep us running in circles with no true direction. When the fear of anything comes to us, we then shut down, bury who we truly are deep within, as to try to keep all the pain and hurt away from us. All our true feelings and emotions get buried so deep within along with our true selves, that we then feel nothing and our hearts go cold. When our hearts are cold, we then stop acknowledging Jesus Christ, which then his blood doesn’t flow through and warm our hearts, and even worse, his love gets lost among all the ugliness that surrounds us.

Trust is the word of the day. Trust is what helps us keep all fear at bay, trust is when you truly have trust in yourself, to overcome anything that may come to you. When we have trust in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, there is no fear that will come to us and bring us great pain. I get the fact that there may be some life events that we can not control and come to wreak havoc on us, but when these events come, it is more important than ever, for us to have complete trust in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ. Simply because once the fear takes a hold of us, once the fear grabs us within the big cold hands, it is very hard to break free from that fear. it is not impossible to break free, but it then takes very hard work on us, as it then consumes us so much, that, yes we may get back to who we are, just not totally of who we could have been, as we have used up so much energy, that now we struggle to get away from any fear moving forward, plus now we even fear the fear.

We can be as free as we want to be, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. We get so focused on just keeping up with the Jones sort of speak, that we totally forget about walking this path for ourselves. We let everything affect us, and struggle with letting go of anything, so we can move forward better and stronger. This journey is not about us walking it for another, this journey works best if we walk it for ourselves, then as others see this and do the same, now you have a healthy journey, where we all can walk our paths in peace and happiness. Plus when we acknowledge the blood of Christ within our hearts, he then warms our body and soul as well, while his love leaks out of us, and into all those around us.

When my journey finally comes to a close, I want to be an Eagle. A big powerful bird that flies through the skies with no worries, they are so strong they fly so effortlessly no matter how strong the winds are. Watching an Eagle take to the sky and flap those wings with such a force to get really high in the sky, then just simply glide all through the ” big blue yonder”, as they catch those wind currents just right. The Eagle is such a Majestic bird, a bird that its beauty shines from afar, a bird that sees his dinner from so high above and within the waters below, then swoops down and snatches it with the greatest of ease. The Eagle just does its thing along its journey and does not let the fear get in its way, or it wouldn’t be able to soar at such high heights, with the greatest of ease.

Letting go isn’t all about cleaning out the basement, or cleaning out the car. To really let go is about cleaning out yourself, taking stock in your life, seeing where you were, where you are, to get to where you want moving forward. It is kind of like being a hoarder, where you are so afraid to throw anything away, so your house becomes so cluttered with crap, you can’t even walk around the house correctly. The difference is, you have become a Hoarder of your life, where there is so much clutter within yourself, that now you can’t see clearly along your path of the journey. The journey then becomes so heavy that now, you don’t even want to walk anywhere anymore, not just that you don’t want to, you just have no clue of the direction, because of all the inner clutter. Let go, be free, fly the open skies like the bird in this picture, as you let go, so does the heaviness of trying to take off and be free, then you can see clearly along your path, to walk through this journey, to be free, within the peace and happiness, that Jesus Christ showed us, on his journey here with us. Let go and be free, so we all can be everything we want, throughout this journey of life, as peace and happiness surround us all.

” Fly away, be free, don’t let the clutter weigh you down and bring great pain in all you do”

” Focus on yourself more and get away from the focus of others, so you can truly be free to fly the heights you want throughout this journey”

What is Lurking around the next corner?

” The morning dew of the great outdoors, with all its mysterious views”

The many journeys within this journey of life will have you exploring all that you want while enjoying all the true beauty that Mother Nature holds for us to see.

The night sky gives way to the light of day, you roll over in your sleeping bag, to get a peek out the window of the tent and all you see is the fog of the morning dew. The night sky within the wilderness has no lights from a city sky, it is total darkness, with your senses going crazy with all the sounds off in the distance. You sit by the campfire and relax within the sounds of silence, then a sudden sound of a twig snapping, races the heart alarms your excitement. Your adrenaline level is now full, as now you jump at any kind of sound that is out of your normal. With each passing minute of the dark sky, you hear different sounds that not just intrigue, but have you reaching for a weapon, as you do not know what it is? Then a sound of an Owl chatting with another, then a pack of coyotes howling at the night’s moon, all while the crickets consume most of the noise, from the night sky. You go back to the campfire as now you need to add more wood before it goes out, and with your adrenaline level at its peak, the last thing is for the fire to go out, now you have zero light within the night sky.

With all the different noises of the night sky around you, you walk to the banks of the rivers shore, to look out within the darkness, to look up into the night sky, you can not see too far out into the river, but as you look up into the night sky, you can see more stars than you have ever seen before, you can actually see all the other planets, that are also within the orbit of space, just like the planet that you walk your journey within. now your imagination wakes up and has your mind wandering on many things, as now you forget about the coyotes in the distance and your adrenaline level goes down a bit, so you can let the night sky relax you within the unknown.

You go back to the campfire to restoke the fire and sit to watch the flames, as you become hypnotized from the dancing flames. The campfire is like a form of therapy and therapy so strong, that without saying a word, your body is so relaxed, it becomes hard to get up out of the chair. Your eyes are getting heavy, your head is bopping up and down, you glance at your watch and decide it’s time to retire to the tent, so you go through your nightly checklist to secure everything from maybe a bear or whatever may visit in the night? You poke at the fire and add a log or two? to keep a dim light within your camp, to hopefully keep the animals at bay? You now enter into the tent and ready your bed for the night, as you slip into the sleeping bag, you then just lay there with eyes closed, as the night sky puts you to sleep for the night.

As you wake to the sounds of the morning birds singing their tunes, you stretch your arms as you yawn from a good night’s rest. As you sit up in the bed, you open the window of the tent to look out, you see the morning dew has created a thick fog and you can’t see much at all. You also notice the temperature drop overnight as you get a bit of a chill, so you exit the tent to start a fire for some warmth and put on a pot of coffee to perk its fresh aroma within the sounds of the morning sky. While by the campfire and waiting for the coffee to perk, you look around and notice a Deer out for its stroll, this makes you forget about the morning chill, as you watch the true beauty of nature right before your eyes. You never know what will lurk out of the morning fog, but this time was nothing but beauty as far as you can see. Now your eyes are opening wide to all that is around, the fire burning within the pit, and the coffee is ready for consumption, so as you sip the coffee and look out into the river, the sun begins to break, as it begins to clear the morning fog, you think to yourself, it is going to be a good day within the beauty of mother nature.

There is so much to explore within mother nature, but you never get ahead of yourself or even let any kind of stress dictate where you are going, simply because you forget about any kind of time frame, just relax and take it all in at your leisure. There is no honking of any horns to get you to speed up, it about simply taking in all the beauty that is around you, without any signs saying to rush or move faster. You are now on the time of nature, as you look up in the sky, see where the sun is, to determine the time of day. The longer you stay out within mother nature, the more in tune you become with all its beauty, the more you respect everything around, even the wildlife as you realize that you are within their home now. Just as mother nature can be full of mystery, so can everything else you may encounter throughout this journey, but as you get more in tune with everything, you clearly find that you need not let the fear keep you from enjoying all the true beauty that is everywhere around you.

” We fear so much along this journey, that there are times we do not truly walk our paths as properly as we should”

” Life is too short to let any kind of fear control us in any way, so get out and explore so the fear, we can not fear anymore”

Bridge over troubled waters


” Cast your burden on the Lord, and he shall sustain you”

Psalm 55:22

Years ago I came across this oft-quoted prayer:

” God grant me the serenity to accept things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference”

This prayer expresses an important thought, one we should all pray and live.

We all within our paths of this journey, are or have fought a hidden battle, maybe even many battles, it is these battles that make us into who we are, it is how we fight these battles, pick ourselves up from the falls of the battles, heal our scars from the battles, as we then try to move forward along our paths, to be better and stronger and walk with as little pain and hurt as we can. I get that we think we are alone in the battle and it may feel like it is you against the world, but in reality, there are many more fighting these battles, and even still, there are even many more, that are fighting the same battles as you, just they do not say anything, so they can try to portray as being strong to all those around them.

We all have become so comfortable with hiding our true selves to each other, that now we do not even think twice, to further bringing even more fake realities to all those around us, and even so that, for so many of us, this journey through life has become one big gigantic lie. Let’s not forget, when you say one small lie today, eventually that lie keeps getting bigger and bigger, as now we do not even know how to escape the hold, that the lie has on us, till it eventually suffocates us to a point of no return. Then as the lie suffocates us, now the power of denial gets a hold of us, and that’s a power that can and will, control every fiber of our being.

The battles that we may fight on the outside are nothing, compared to the battles that come to us on the inside. these battles strip us of everything that we are, we hide within ourselves, we bury very deeply our true feelings and emotions, our hearts go cold, as we do not let the blood of Jesus pass through and warm it and our souls, then without the blood of Jesus, now his love gets buried deeply as well. When the heart goes cold, it makes it very easy to no longer resist the temptations that Satan will bring to us, then as we let Satan control us, we know lose all the empathy and remorse within us as well.

This journey through life can and will be as long and as good as we want it to be, but we have to “want” it when we give up, then who knows where this journey will take us, or even worse, who really knows when we will be taken from this journey, and yet still, who knows what lies ahead after this journey comes to an end. With all the different cancers around the world, who really knows just when the journey will end? Whether a disease will get us, or maybe we will end each other, or for whatever reason, we end it ourselves? No matter what, we need to still walk through our paths of this journey, we need still to try to keep putting our best foot forward, no matter of how much pain we may go through, because when we keep plugging and never give up, this is how we then become rewarded, by keeping the faith in Jesus and ourselves, as now the hope will always be there, so the Holy Spirit will then give us the power to overcome the battles, heal ourselves of our troubles, as we keep moving forward along our paths, throughout this journey of life, no matter how long or short, this journey may-be?

There are many battles all around us, whether the battle is on a battlefield, or the battle is within us, it is still a battle and we need to overcome the battle, so we can keep moving forward on our paths of this journey. It then becomes on us for just how we fight the battle, or simply just ignore it, as it furthers us into a spinning turmoil, which we then lose the direction for which we were going. When the direction is lost before us, then a whole domino effect happens, which now we simply just wander in circles, instead of truly walking our paths through this journey of life. When you see someone walking in circles, don’t just keep walking like he/she does not exist? cause one day that may be you doing the circling, as we never know what battles are being fought within each other, so as you issue bad words out of your mouth at another, remember of the battles, and how if it were you, would you want it done to you? Life can be short, life can be long, no one really truly knows? So let’s walk together in unity and harmony, so we all can be at the peace and the joy, that Jesus wants for us all, throughout this journey of life.

” There have been so many battles fought throughout Mankind, but what we all forget is, we also have fought many battles deep within as well”

” The fake reality is nothing more than a lie that keeps getting bigger and bigger and consumes us all”
