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”

Learn History to be better moving forward

Our memories throughout the journey we walk, plus learning the history of others before us that also walked this journey before us, this is how we grow to move forward better and stronger with each step throughout this journey of life. It is pretty cool knowing those who walked before us and what they did, to make their journey better for themselves. When we look into our history and look deeply into the other societies before us, we can learn of what works, versus what does not work, but when we try to erase History or even worse do not teach history within our schools, now you can very easily repeat history and take huge steps backward instead of moving forward.

These Native Tribes back in Ancient times in the area of Mount Kineo did not have any technology like we of today, they had no telephones but yet they communicated far better than we do today. These people didn’t procrastinate and whatever they found they turned it into something useful to make their lives better. They learned how to hunt so they can eat, they learned how to barter as there were no monies back then, they were survivors and learned how to survive and were not lazy at anything they did. Now unlike those of us within this society with all the technology and gadgets we have, we have become lazy and expect things to come to us, instead of actually getting out and working hard, so we then can move forward better and stronger. We in this society have become disconnected from each other even with all the connections we have, we hide behind all our devices and have no clue as to what true social interaction is? We think that FaceBook is our modern-day interaction, I have a news flash people, time to step out of our comfort zone before there is no more comfort to enjoy.

There are so much ugliness and chaos among us today, so much that it has become hard to see any light at the end of this darkness. Those who are creating this chaos and unrest, quite simply have lost sight of what is around them, plus none of them are looking through their actions before they actually take the action. I am willing to bet that most of these individuals who are creating this ugliness have zero clues of what they are doing? They are simply a follower and will never be a trailblazer as they walk the path they are on, through this journey of life.

The unfortunate part through all this ugliness and chaos is, we of this society are becoming Victims from it, not only are we becoming trapped in our homes from a virus, but we are also becoming trapped within our homes, for the fear of becoming a true Victim from the ones creating all the ugliness and chaos. Very true that the ones with boots on the ground delivering all this ugliness are merely a puppet for an even bigger puppeteer, so with that said…….. maybe it is time we find the puppeteer so we all can escape this ugliness and get back to the true beauty within this journey of life, find the one holding the puppet strings so we then can cut these strings, showing that they can not hurt us anymore and we are done being a Victim of their ugliness. In this society, it is all about three things, the power, the greed, and the control, these three things will have you lose all sight of reality, not to mention the fact that you become a victim of denial and with denial, you then become someone for who you truly are not. Very true there is a silent majority that says not all that much but is much smarter because they let there true actions speak even louder than even themselves, so when the time is right, the silent majority will let their true actions speak and all the ugliness and chaos will leave us, bringing back the true peace, the true love and the beauty that is around us, as we then move forward along our paths of this journey through life.

 

” Open the history books again cause what you may learn will help you move forward better”

 

” Memories become the history and when we do not glance back to fix the error of our ways, then the future becomes in jeopardy”

 

” Ugliness and chaos are ingredients of evil, as love and faith will bring us good full of peace”

 

 

The flow through this journey of life

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

Jn 3:16

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

The Black clouds over this society

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

These black clouds are coming from a whole slew of issues over time, they come from we the people and the fact that instead of sharing our love within, with each other, we have become lost within the clouds of our judgments. The hate out there is learned from somewhere, from someone? This hate when we let it will control every fiber of our being, it will turn us into someone for who we truly are not, with all that is going on in this society, you can clearly see that we the people within this journey through life, are in the dire need to heal from all this hatred, so we can move forward in peace, with no ugliness getting in our way.

The year 2020 has become a year that we all so want to put an end to and fast, started with a virus that ultimately lockdown many worldwide, has all the so-called leaders getting deep within the power…… the control and the greed of us all, proving that these same leaders care nothing for who they lead and everything for their own agendas, a true leader will lead the herd to prosperity,  a true leader will never put himself above anybody and will always lead by example, to which they will never ask of others something that they wouldn’t do themselves. Through all this virus chit chat and the ones who are looked at as the experts, are they really an expert? Maybe they simply are someone that is trying to fill their pockets, or maybe they enjoy gaining power over others? It really does not matter to which, as they both will turn us into somebody we truly are not, not too mention the fact that, now trust and respect then enter the picture, without these two components, will then have us rationalize away whatever actions we take and when there is zero accountability, the issues then compound one after the other and on top of each other, until the weight of these issues then become a factor as well, as we become someone for who we truly are not.

Then there are the media,  let’s be real here, the ” fake news media”, who hide behind an amendment that they think will protect them as they then ram their agenda down our throats. They also will try to gain control over us with their drama, their twisting of the spoken word to fit their agenda, they too are deep within the power of denial like the entire Democratic party, they think we the people do not see what they are doing, but I have a news flash for all you media types, we do see you, but we the people have been the silent way too long, the time we hold all of them accountable and end all this ugliness, hatred and control before there is nothing more to end.

Now even more ugliness has come in the form of murder by an officer of the law, of a civilian and through the video out there he never resisted arrest, now justice would be these officers involved get what they deserve, but some with the coldest of hearts and full of hatred think that taking justice in their hands is the answer, here is another news flash!!! Two wrongs do not make a right better, it only compounds the issues further, to the point it brings chaos to us all. Rioting, looting, and burning everything up is not the answer, this only shows just how much, we the people have turned on each other through all this so-called, power, control, and greed that has infected us all. This is not the vision God had when he created all of Mankind, this is not what Jesus taught us when he came to us and walked his journey here with us, We the people are not truly like this, we have learned this hatred from somewhere or someone? Our hearts are filled with the love of Jesus Christ, but somewhere along our paths of this journey, our hearts have become cold, instead of the warmth of the love of Jesus, because of all the issues we have buried deeply our true feelings and emotions, leaving us that someone that not even ourselves recognize. We the people have started all this and it’s been going on for some time now, but we the people can end this if only we truly get back to who we are, get back the warmth of the love of Jesus within our hearts, get back our true feelings and emotions we have buried for way too long. We the people need to change our ways, change our actions, feel the empathy we all have within, so the black cloud over this society will pass by and disappear, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” The black cloud that hovers above will not last forever, we have to stay strong and get back to who we truly are”

 

” Love and empathy can defeat this hatred and evil, we all need the faith to give us hope moving forward”

 

” We the people started this with our actions, we the people can end this with our actions and being truly of who we are”

 

 

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”

40-day journey well worth any sacrifice

 

 

da9b9-lent_2013_40days

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

 

 

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”

 

 

 

The many Gaps throughout this journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

These rocks have many gaps with one main gap, which is the one that the water flows through and down forming the falls, no matter where we may look, there are many gaps all around us, with the biggest gap being between each one of us also known as the ” Generation Gap”. The Generation Gap can be so very far apart or it can be closer than we would like, but none the less there is a Generation Gap of the entire Human race whether we learn to accept it or not?

The Grand Canyon has many big gaps from one side to another, just as we as well like, the younger generation and the golden year’s generation, now unlike what some may want to accept, those in their golden years are definitely more experienced along this journey, now true that they may not have all the answers as they also might not have taken the same path through this journey, but also very true that they also have walked this journey and have seen many moons, as well as many sunsets and sunrises as well. Throughout this journey of life for some reason or another, we tend to think we ourselves have all the answers and that we know more than the other and with that, we then think that even with the path we walk and that no other has walked the same path, that we know everything and the rest need to learn from me? There is so much we all need to learn of this journey if only we could set aside our differences, then just maybe we all could coincide as we walk our paths, through this journey of life in the peace and serenity we all so deserve.

There are so many Gaps from time to time we will step within them instead of over them, some of these Gaps are quite deep and can hurt very deeply as well, which is why it is just as important to pick ourselves up properly, or the pain will overcome us so much that, we may never walk through this journey correctly because we then let the pain dictate how we walk, instead of us dictating just how we step on our paths of this journey through life. For us to step over the gaps is a lot different than the water flowing down the gaps and over the rocks, then down into the pool below, now we may not be able to flow like the water over the falls, but we can flow just as easy along our paths when our steps along the path we chose, don’t become too spread out and force us to get out of sync with what is around us.

The Waterfall of life so gracious as it flows along the path of its journey, one of the many beauties we can see when we step outside and take an adventure, then as we see all of its beauty, we then can heal ourselves of all our troubles and pain, so we can move forward to be better and stronger always throughout this journey, there are many gaps throughout this journey, it is when we let the gaps dictate the way we walk our paths, that makes the journey a bit rougher than it should be, but when we dictate how we step over the gaps, then it is as easy as one foot in front of the other.

 

” The Generation Gap could be wide or it could be narrow, so no matter what we all still need to coincide to move forward better and stronger”

 

 

” The Grand Canyon has many Gaps as it is the Gaps that stand out through all else”

 

 

” The beauty of a waterfall within the mountains is as beautiful as it gets with no question”

 

” With the many Gaps along the journey never let the gaps dictate of just how you walk your path”
