The day is at hand

” Put on the armor of light”

Romans 13:12

” Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not”

Lamentations 3:22

We all walk our paths through this journey of life, we each will go through many different times, with some of those times being the same and some, very different to one another. As we walk through the dark times, we may feel like we are alone? We are never alone and God is always there for us, for he is the spirit that holds a place deep within us all. We just have to truly believe, have complete faith, so he can guide us out of the darkness and into the light. God sent his only son to us, all wrapped in Human flesh, Jesus walked through his path of this journey here with us, as we crossed the many crossroads of these paths, he showed and taught us many things, so we can keep moving forward always, it is when we go backwards, that shows of how much we need to get back to the faith in God, so Jesus can lead us into the path of righteousness. It is when we have complete trust in Jesus, that we will keep moving forward, as we overcome all the battles we may encounter.

Sometimes we will feel so trapped within the darkness of our troubles, that we don’t even give a thought toward Jesus Christ, we become so consumed with the darkness and trying to find our way, that we become lost and lose all confidence in ourselves, lose all the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, to the point that we feel worthless and incapable. When we lose the drive to keep moving forward, we then doubt everything that may come to us, even that what Jesus will send us, so we can find that confidence and faith, to get out of the darkness and back into the light, to continue moving forward along our paths of this journey.

Jesus may be the blood that travels through our hearts and warms our bodies deeply with love, while God is that Holy Spirit that lives within our souls, so that when we truly feel the warmth passing through us, we can always not just get through the dark times, but see the light of salvation ahead of us, as we keep moving forward through this journey. Yes the dark times can seem really dark, with no signs of light? But when we keep to the faith and belief in God and his son Jesus, then these dark times will give way, to the brightest light we will ever know. Just because we do not see God, or Jesus, does not mean they do not exist? They are always there within us, we just need to truly feel their presence and love within us, so we can always have the trust that they will guide us out of the darkness and into the true light of salvation.

Easier said than done, as there are many who are totally afraid of the dark. Then you add in all the troubling times, the ugliness, now not only do many fear the dark, now they fear this journey with each step, and with all the ugliness of this society, only shows that there is more fear in this world, then there is love. God didn’t create all this so we could fear it all, he created all this for us to enjoy and be at peace, with each step throughout this journey. Some may put on that fake smile so others will think you are happy, while few actually feel the joy within our souls, which then God puts a real and true smile on your face, so you can share the love of Jesus, with all those around you. This journey through life is a lot more than the material things that we gather along our paths, this journey is more about the true feelings that is deep within our hearts and souls, so we then can have the trust, faith and love of Jesus always, as we then share that love with all those around us.

One of God’s ten conmandments is, ” love thy neighbor as yourself”, the way this society has grown today is, we have totally lost sight of this one. I can remember as a child, we all knew our neighbors and looked out for one another, today, not only did we forget this conmandment, we also forgot who our neighbors are, as we isolate ourselves from all those around us. This whole journey through life, is not just believing and having faith in God and Jesus, it is also of how we treat each other, help one another and just simply get along together in unity, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life. We have become so consumed in our own little worlds, that we also have lost all empathy for one another, when someone falls, we just walk by like they are not even there, when someone reaches out for help, we ignore them like the plague, why do we do this? Quite simply, we have totally lost sight of who our neighbors are and they are not just the ones who live next door, they actually walk their paths as we do, throughout this journey. Your neighbor is not just the person next door, they are the ones who live within your community, which you pass by without even a simple hello. We don’t have to be friends with everybody around us, but yes we should simply be friendly with those around us, show more compassion and empathy, which comes from the love of Jesus within us, so we all then travel through the darkness, to always see the light of salvation on the other side of the darkness.

When we all wake up each day, get ourselves ready for the days events, before we leave our houses, we first will put on this armor, which we feel it will protect us from all harm, protect us from whstever darkness will come to us? But what we are really doing is, putting on the mask with the fake smile, so we can seem to others as being happy? We are never truly happy, unless we feel the joy of God within ours souls, we are never truly happy, if we do not feel the blood of Jesus passing through our hearts and warming our bodies with his love. We have become so cold toward one another, that it is clear that we lost this love and empathy along our paths. Yes maybe there is some still there somewhere? But with the way the media brings to us all the ugliness and drama within their agendas, they don’t want us to see it, so they can keep bringing their fear agendas to us all. With all the fear and ugliness the media brings us daily, sometimes I think they are Satan, keeping us from feeling the true joy and love, that Jesus shares with us all, as we walk our paths through journey of life.

” With each day comes the light and with each night comes darkness, showing that the darkness never lasts with the light right around the corner”

” The sun may light up the day, but the true light is within us, as God lights up our souls even brighter than the sun”

What a difference a day makes

” Today we work on now, as yesterday is in the past, tomorrow may never come, as we should never live for tomorrow to escape yesterday, so just simply live in the present as each day comes”

One day may bring calm and clear skies, as the next day will bring clouds, a storm, with some rough water, everyday may never be a given, but what is a given, is the way we walk our paths, through this journey of life. No matter on how much the deck may get stacked against us from time to time, there is nothing we can not do throughout this journey, As the days shift from tomorrow to yesterday, and as time goes by like the wind going through the leaves on a tree, when we walk our paths correctly and within the present, this journey will always be, a journey of fulfillment and enrichment, as we strive to be better and stronger moving forward.

There will be many things that cross our paths, these things will bring much chaos and ugliness, that will bring to us real pain and hurt, just like the change in the weather and the sights within Mother Nature, change is one of those things that comes along our paths and many times at that, change is that thing that unless we learn to adapt to it, it will further the chaos and the ugliness, change will have us live within the yesterday’s and never look forward to any of the tomorrow’s, then as it clouds our judgments within our minds, never have us live within the present that today brings.

Yesterday is the past, tomorrow is never promised, but today is what we can control now, no matter what we may be going through along our paths, when we stay strong and have complete faith in who we truly are, there is nothing we can not do, there is nothing that will come across our path that will bring us down, when we keep the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, and when we adapt to change, this journey we walk, will always be as beautiful as the beauty of Mother Nature.

The quiet seclusion of being one with mother nature will, help us heal ourselves from our troubles, especially when that quietness is along the shoreline of a rocky beach, with the sounds of nature calming our minds and clearing away the clouds within, so we can see clearly moving forward within the future. The wind passing through the tree’s and whistling into our ears, kind of like the sound of music from a jukebox, the loons swimming in the lake and chatting with their peers, an Eagle soaring through the wild blue yonder, with the greatest of ease, maybe even a moose coming out of the woods to the water for it’s daily splash, this is how we truly relax and heal ourselves from all that pains us so. Just as change comes to us, and how we change over time, so does all within mother nature change, which is why we need to adapt to all change, so we can walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness that Jesus Christ brought to us within his journey here with us, we just have to let go of the yesterdays, do not expect any of the tomorrows, and just live within the present, as we become better and stronger moving forward.

” We should only look back to heal ourselves of our troubles. then we can see further of what is in front of us”

” The past will always be the past, as the future will always be something that hasn’t happened yet, while the present is the one thing that we can control now”
