Within the Kingdom of God, Jesus cultivates us all

” To what shall we compare the Kingdom of God? It is like a Mustard seed…once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants”

MK 4:30a, 31a, 32

The Kingdom of God is far and wide, It holds so much within it, that we would never see it all, even if we went out and explored every day throughout this journey of life. Then you have Mother Nature within this Kingdom, even when you get out and explore one area, as mother nature then changes it with even more beauty for us to see. The Kingdom of God is so vast, but yet, we take so for granted just how vast it truly is. God created all this around us, not so we can attack one another, not so we can take it all for granted, he did so, for us all to come together in unity, to walk through this journey, in the peace and joy, his son Jesus showed us when he came and walked his path here with us on this journey.

This bird flying freely within the Kingdom of God, without a care or a worry with each flap of the wings, simply taking in all the true beauty of what is God’s Country, this is what God had in mind for all of us, until we the people started getting away, for what this journey truly is all about. The trees within this picture started as a seed, then mother nature became the Farmer and sown these trees into a beautiful part of all the beauty we see around us. Look deeply into the horizon of this picture, take in mind that throughout all these mountains, there is plenty of wildlife that lives within them. That’s the problem in this society, if we can not see something, we then lose all belief in anything else out there, which explains why so many have walked away from the house of the Lord today. When you truly look deeply into that horizon, then you will totally see everything and not just a picture of a landscape.

A Farmer is one who cultivates the land, throughout the many societies the Farmer’s job has always stayed the same, to take care of the land, so they can bring the fruits of their labor to us all. Throughout time, the tools for the Farmer have changed, just like mother nature has changed the landscape throughout God’s country, to bring even more beauty to us all. There are many trades within this journey, with all the trades, there are also many tools for each trade. Now, these tools will be very different from one another, as they are specific to the job they were designed for. Very true all these tools have changed over time, only because they are designed to make our jobs easier, so we can enjoy the fruits of our labor, as we walk our paths to be better and stronger moving forward.

In many ways we the people of this society have failed each other throughout this journey, we have stopped short of coming together in unity, as we attack one another, we have stopped looking deeply within what we see, and totally judge one another from a glance, without truly knowing each other deeply. We say we want to get out within mother nature, then we leave a big mess in our wake, we do not clean up properly as we walk the trails of nature, yes mother nature will cultivate this land and keep it beautiful, but when we the people leave our trash, instead of disposing of it properly, eventually there will be no more beauty for any of us to see.

God was the first farmer as he created all this for us all to enjoy, then came the farmer to cultivate the land, bringing much fruit to us all, but mother nature has always been there to cultivate the landscape that God brought us. We the people and when we stay true to who we are, with the faith in ourselves, as well as Jesus Christ, can and will bring much hope to each other, but with our actions toward each other, the hope has become lost, while the faith has become buried deep within us, as we have become so divided, that we can not even say a simple hello to our neighbors anymore. This journey through life is so much better when we come together in unity, it is this division that will bring to us, all the hatred, ugliness, and chaos that we see today. We the people started all this ugliness, we the people can end it as well, if only we come together in unity, come together within the house of the Lord, so we can truly see deeply of what we see within the horizon, of the true landscape that God created for us all. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, with unity we can overcome anything we set out to do, as we walk within the peace and joy that Jesus taught us, at the time of his journey here with us.

” God gave us the farmer to help mother nature cultivate and sow the seeds, for all the fruits of this land”

” The birds fly through the skies with ease as they glide into the horizon of life, so we can look deeply into that horizon to truly see all its beauty”

Setting a table we all share

” He said to them. This is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed for many”

MK 14:24

The Priest sets the table at the Alter, as he gets ready to share the most Holy, Body, and Blood of Christ, with us all. Jesus Christ is everywhere around us and all we need to do is, have complete faith and acknowledge his presence, then we shall feel his blood flowing through our hearts, just like the water flows over the falls and into the pool below. When at church and receiving these gifts, this is the physical way of accepting Jesus within us, the spiritual way is, us believing in him with every fiber of our being.

Jesus is everywhere around just like all the different bodies of water we see wherever we may be. No matter which way we travel along our paths, or whichever direction we go at the crossroads, there will be a body of water that we will pass by, Jesus will be with us at every step along this journey and especially when we truly believe with the faith in him as well as ourselves. When we Pray properly, this is the true communication with Jesus that he will communicate back, by giving us his signs, to follow along our paths, these signs we will see as we truly believe in him, so he can lead us to the path of righteousness and away from all the temptations of Satan himself.

With all the ugliness and the hatred we see all around us, should be a bright red flag to us all, that we need to get back to the power of Prayer, get back to sitting with the Priest as he sets the table at the Alter and gets ready to share the gifts with us all. So we then can truly feel the blood of Christ flowing through our hearts and warming our entire body with his love. Then we all can share this love with each other, as the hatred and the ugliness disappears from this journey. When we share the love of Jesus that’s within our hearts, it then becomes that much easier to walk our paths throughout this journey of life, we then will put in the work to clear the paths as we go, making for a smoother walk for all those who will be walking behind us. This world needs more good Shepard’s to lead properly, and will bring us onto the side of good, as right now we have some who say they are Shepards? Who is bringing us deeper into the darkness of evil?

Even though the days before Christ, you had the darkness of evil, just like we have this same darkness now, so very true that the darkness will always be there, as well as the light, the common denominator to all this is, ” We the People”. When you have darkness and light, just like the light of day and the dark of night, it then becomes totally on we the people and not just how we react to them, but how we put forth our actions within the dark or the light, toward each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. We all may think we are smarter than one another, we may think that attacking one another is okay? Well, you can clearly see just how this is turning out, no matter where you turn today. The problems of today clearly lie at the feet of each one of us, as with our actions, we don’t think through the ramifications of our actions moving forward. Then as we do not feel the blood of Jesus flowing through our hearts and warming our bodies, we now have lost all feelings of everything all around us.

With the true faith and belief in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, we will always feel his blood within us, then our bodies will be warm with his love, for then we can share with each other, but when our hearts are cold, we then have nothing to share and even worse, when it comes time for the journey to end, we know have run out of chances to accept the blood of Jesus within us and join him within the world of eternal salvation, which now we enter into the uncertain world of, Purgatory. Within Purgatory, we now enter into the unknown with no true direction, just like as we walked our paths of the journey, without feeling the blood of Christ within our hearts and souls, at least in this journey, we have a chance to fix what we need to fix, in the world of Purgatory, we have no clue if we will have any chances at all. So let’s set our tables at the Alter correctly, so we can truly feel the blood of Christ pass through our hearts and warm our bodies and souls with his love, as he guides us to the path of righteousness, and away from all temptation, so we can share his love with each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and joy of Jesus Christ. May we never lose sight of the signs that Jesus brings to us, so as we walk through the shadows of darkness, we will always get back to the true light of Jesus Christ.

” The body and blood of Jesus is always within us, we need to acknowledge him to truly feel his love”

” Set the table correctly everyday, to walk further each and every day throughout this journey”

You see what you want to see, but never really look at what you are seeing

” You are witnesses of these things”

LK 24:48

We of this society within this Political correct world, simply let other’s take control of who we truly are? Why? Because we let our perception of what we see cloud our judgments, as we lose the direction of where we are going along our paths of this journey. Perception is one of those things that we all will do differently, you can take one thing and have ten people look at it, and the result is, ten different perceptions of that one thing. Multiply that by each Individual on this planet… Well you get the picture? Now you add in the source of where the information comes from, example like the far left liberal media, and now you have perception on steroids’, with drama, agendas, and chaos all around us.

We all will be a witness of many things, but one thing some may not witness because they take it for granted is, stepping outside and seeing the true beauty of mother nature. Mother Nature will always be there to show us her beauty, but instead of focusing on her fury that the media will surround us with, we will never see past that, in order to truly look at her shine in her finest moments. Most will never go off grid camping, pitch a tent to make your bed within, so you can lay down and truly feel the heartbeat of this planet, they would rather stay in a hotel, order room service, and look out the window, then say they saw mother natures beauty? Most will see this waterfall, but only a few will truly look at this waterfall and ask questions like, how did this waterfall get here? This waterfall was formed by a Glacier that happened way before any of us were alive. The Glacier formed the rocks, as the mountain stream flowed so fluently over the rocks and into a pool of water below. Most will just see it as water that flows over a cliff of rock, as few of us truly look at it in awe! Of the true beauty that mother nature holds for us all.

Today within this crazy society, when we say witness? We immediately think of, being a witness of a crime that has been committed? We forget or take advantage of the fact, we all have eyes to see with, for which now we are all witnesses of everything around us, whether good or bad. If a dog runs in circles now we are the witness of watching that dog run in circles, when the sun moves from one side of the sky to the other, now we are witnessing the movement of both the sun and the earth in harmony. You see an Eagle fly through the sky high above you, now you have just witnessed that Eagle in flight. We are all witnesses everyday as we walk our paths through this journey, but the problem is, we take so for granted of everything, that we don’t truly look at what we are seeing.

Even if you only see the same things day to day as you commute to your daily 9 to 5’s, you are still a witness of what you are seeing on a daily basis, just that we don’t look at it in that way? There is so much beauty right there in front of us everyday, but the sad part is, we do not allow ourselves to truly see what we are looking at, we may glance at something, but we never truly look, because we so fear this politically correct world we are in today. A lot of the problem is not we ourselves, it is all the agendas and the drama, that is forced down our throats by all the media types, and our so called leader’s around us, they will only tell us what they want us to know, so they can keep to their agendas, which happens to be, the power, the greed, and the control of every one of us throughout this society.

This journey of life does not have to be this way, but it will never change if we ourselves do not change. Yes change can be difficult and hard, but when change comes for the better, then it can be even more beautiful, then mother nature herself. Change will never come if we keep to the status Quo, which makes it even more important for us all to step outside our comfort zones, and let the change come, so we all can accept it, to move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Change, is all around us everyday, just like mother natures beauty is all around us. They both can bring us fury as well as bring us beauty, but like the world of political correction, we fear greatly all the change, as we let it cloud our judgments and never truly see the beauty right in front of us. Unless we can all truly be a witness of what we are seeing, we may never look at any beauty around us, and truly see how beautiful it really is? This journey of life really is not that hard, but we ourselves make it hard with our actions, and how we perceive everything around us. May the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, as we all walk our paths through this peace, throughout this journey of life.

” Do you truly see what you are looking at? Or do you perceive what you see without truly looking at what you see”

” Political correction is making us all weak, we need to truly see it for what it is, so we can look deeper into all the true beauty around us”

” Don’t be afraid”

Matthew 28:10

” Love the Lord your God with all your heart… and your neighbor as yourself”

Luke 10:27

Come my Shepard, let’s lead the Sheep to peace, happiness, and a good feast, but never shall we lead them astray, or into the great Abyss of the deep dark unknown. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, as the paths being different from one another, the journey is the same for us all, with the beginning and the ending being the same for us all, it is the middle part that our paths we chose will help define who we truly are. Now as we walk through this journey there will be much that will come to us, there is so much that we will encounter, we may get lost from time to time trying to find our way. The growth and the change that comes to us can, and will be over whelming, so over whelming they may have us lose our way? We not only grow on the outside with how tall or short we are, we also grow on the inside with our true feelings and emotions. We will also grow within a society of many to be better and stronger, but if we do not grow properly within the society, then we get left behind and ridiculed from all others. If we do not grow properly on the inside as well as the outside, then the change that will come is either going to be positive or negative.

Just like with faith there will be hope same goes for, when you grow properly, then the change that will come will be positive. anything or anyone will never escape change of any kind, it is part of this journey. Everything around us changes even we ourselves will change as we grow. We are not the same person from when we are born, till the day of our last breathe, the things we can do at a young age, we find we can’t do as we become older, and when we are older we are much wiser then when we are young. Our bodies will go through many changes on the exterior as well as the interior, which is why we need to grow properly, so we can accept any and all the change that will come to us, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

Somewhere along this journey we all have become disconnected with each other, We think we are better than one another and that we are smarter than one another? Yes we are all unique to each other, but we are all very similar with all the same faculties and parts. True some may look different with their skin color, but in the eyes of God, we are all the same no matter who you are. Very true that we all serve a purpose as we walk this journey, just that the problem then is, some may find that purpose, while other’s wander aimlessly along their paths. Some because of other factors never truly live up to who they are, they get passed up and left behind, then the ones who passed them think now they are better and smarter? Some may learn faster as others, but this is no way to determine that you are better? We all learn at our own pace as we grow within the society, then as the change comes to us, we all then become wiser as we grow old.

Within this society we all live today, there are some who think they are better than us all, as they try to achieve all the power, control and greed over the rest of us. I have a news flash for you: Nobody is better than anyone, we are all similar and equal to each other, the only difference is, we are all unique to each other, and when we come together with this uniqueness, then we all can change and grow properly and be better and stronger moving forward. There is nothing we can not do when we grow properly and accept change with confidence, there is no one who is smarter or better then ourselves, only that we all learn at our own pace, and when we take care of that inner child within us properly, then we can not only grow properly on the exterior, we can also grow properly on the interior as well.

Not only do we grow and change as we walk our paths of this journey, there is the plant life, the wildlife, the sky, the bodies of water, mother nature, etc. Everything around us grows and changes as well. There is so much growth and change going on within the calendar year of the four seasons, it is hard to keep up with and at times take totally for granted, the death within the season of Fall of all the plant life, to the white Winter blanket of the cold winter months, then the re-birth of the Spring months, to the vibrancy of the Summer months, the change within the seasons is enough to very easily lose track of. From year to year as you venture out within mother nature, you can clearly see all the changes, one thing you may see one year, may not be the same the next year. Everything throughout this journey of life will go through change, which then leads to how we grow properly, so we can walk our paths in peace and happiness always.

” With faith there will be hope, through change there will be growth”

” The Shepard will lead the Sheep throughout their journey, but that does not mean the Sheep can not lead themselves or that we can not be the Shepard ”

The many Journey’s within the Journey

” In my Father’s house are many mansions”

John 14:2

” Only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things he has done for you”

1 Samuel 12:24

With everything that we have gone through in the last year, some may take everything a bit personal, some may just laugh it off, but the sad part of the last year is, there are some that will exploit the dark days, in order to take advantage of the rest of us, so they through their denial, can achieve all the power, control and greed of everything around them.

This Journey through life will always have many smaller journeys within it, it is these smaller journeys that make each of us into what we are and become. It is how we learn and who we learn from as we grow into this society of many, yes very true we can be taught the wrong information, but through this journey of life, there are no books to fall back on, we only learn from what we see and are taught. Some may say, ” your facts are wrong”, but who are they to say that, as there are no real fact checkers and we all walk this bigger journey together. Now there are some who are born with a silver spoon in their mouth, then get taught nothing as they grow, only get told that, you will have great amounts of money, which makes you more powerful. Sorry, but there is no amount of money that makes you better than another, it is just your arrogance that makes you think this? This is not what Jesus taught here as he walked this bigger journey with us, what he taught us is, this journey and how we become affected by it is, totally on how we treat each other, how we love one another, how our actions and as little as they can be at times, will affect one another. Then as we respect one another is on how we treat each other, when you disrespect someone you then do not see truly of who they are, we all in this society have become engulfed in the ugliness and the hatred, to the point that none of really show who we are anymore, simply because we are protecting ourselves from the pain and hurt that may come to us. It is when we do not walk the bigger journey correctly, that the smaller journey’s then become clouded with no true path among them, having faith in ourselves comes from the faith in Jesus Christ, so we than can have the hope in all we do moving forward.

There are some among us that totally take for granted this journey of life, to the point that they do not even see it as a journey? They see everything around them as theirs and they do not want to share any of it? We all get what we put into this journey and if you put in nothing, then don’t expect everything to be handed to you. There are many smaller journeys within this journey and some may not look at it in that way? They just walk through this life without truly seeing all that it entails, then look back with regret. These smaller journeys come with their ups and downs, with the downs can be many bumps that will bruise as well, yes these bruises will bring much pain and hurt, and will leave many scars as well, but as the pain and hurt become healed, yes the scars remain as they remind us of where we came from, they must never become of who we are, for this will stop us from truly walking this journey, as Jesus showed us, Then as we stop truly walking this journey, is when the clouds of doubt come to us, which forces us to hide within, without being truly of who we are.

Blake Shelton has a song out called ” This is God’s country”, it is a great song and one that helps you realize of the smaller journeys we all walk within this bigger journey. Now as much as we think, there are parts of this planet that God created, that are still untouched by man, but unless you get out and explore the true beauty of Mother Nature, you will never see the true beauty of this great country…..aka, God’s country. There are way too many negative and drama full people among us, these are the ones that have become so hurt within there lives, that they now bring to each of us, their own sick and twisted agendas, that do nothing but fuel the fire of all the ugliness and hatred all around us. Yes it takes many to make up a society, it also takes a few as well, to totally screw up this society with their sick and twisted agendas. It is one thing to wander through this journey, it is totally a very different thing to truly walk through as many little journeys as you can before the bigger journey ends, so not just to respect the journey, but to respect all others, as they to walk their journeys, through this bigger journey we all walk.

The many smaller journeys within this bigger journey will vary from one to another, not all of us will embark on the same smaller journeys either, you will know within your heart just which smaller journey is for you, and as you have complete faith in yourself as well as Jesus, then the hope will always guide you along your path that you embark on, so we all can then walk in peace and happiness, throughout this journey of life.

” We all will get bruised by the bumps of the journey, but never let the bruises dictate of how you walk through this journey”

“There are many smaller journeys through this bigger journey, reach into your heart to find just which journey is best for you with great happiness and peace”

” He walked along a little farther and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They too were in a boat, mending their nets. Then he called them. So they left their father Zebedee in the boat along with the hired men and followed him”

MK 1:19-20

You can be a Fisherman, or you can be a Fisher of Men? No matter which you chose, the reward will fill your heart with warmth, as Jesus Christ fills it with love. Both paths need maintenance, both paths are within this journey of life, and like all paths, there will be many up’s and down’s. Nobody ever said the journey was easy, and those that do, are only kidding themselves as they really haven’t lived the journey.

A Fisherman can and will catch many fish, to not just feed himself, but will feed many throughout his journey, yes will come maintenance at every turn, and not just maintenance of himself, but maintenance of all his supplies and equipment as well. The Fisherman will need a boat to sail out and catch the bigger prize, as the bigger the fish, the more it feeds. A Fisherman needs plenty of faith, cause when he has faith in the days journey, there will be much hope, to return with a boat load of fish, to feed himself and all the Town’s people.

As Jesus walked his path among us, within this journey of life, there were many who followed, but the twelve main followers, were his most loyal, and the ones that were to further his teachings, after he sacrificed himself, for us all. The Fishermen is very much like the Fisher of Men, as one has the followers in the sea, within the net, then hauled into the boat, for the days catch. The Fisher of Men, walk along the land, with their followers, walking behind them, and learning the ways of Jesus through them, sharing the love of Jesus within their hearts, with all those around them, on their journey through their lives.

Now within this society, of which we all walk our paths, the problem before us is, we have strayed away from the house of God, we have buried the warmth of the love of Jesus within our hearts, as our hearts then become cold and bitter. We take to the sea’s on our boat’s, not just for the scenic views, but we only catch the daily catch, for our own consumption, with no thought of anyone around us. Then as we walk our paths along this land, we do so by ourselves, not just making it a lonely journey, but losing the faith of each other, which then has us become divided from each other, and as we are divided, and as our hearts have become cold, we then lose the trust and faith of each other, leaving us with no hope moving forward.

As much as we do not want to admit to, we do need each other, as we walk our paths along this journey of life, this is what makes us complete, and when we enter the doors, of the house of God, and truly believe in his son Jesus, then our hearts become warm with his love, so we than can share that love with each other, as all the ugliness of Satan, disappears from all that is around us. When we all stand as one, with nothing between us to divide us, then there is nothing we can not do, there is nothing to stand in our way, so we then can get to that path of righteousness, which lights up our paths very brightly, with much peace and happiness, and when we are all at our happiest, then it becomes very easy, to show respect, and dignity of each other. Without the love of Jesus within our hearts, it then turns very cold with bitterness, the wall between us, divides us greatly, which makes everything seem so bleak, we then feel very lonely and isolate ourselves further, to try to protect ourselves from all that is around us, this makes for a very rough journey, with great darkness, and no light anywhere, as far as we can see.

” True there will be some darkness to walk through, so the light will come strong and bright”

” A Fisherman will catch the catch of the day, a Fisher of Men will gather us all in faith with great hope moving forward”

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”

 

 

 

 

Follow Jesus and be enlightened throughout this journey

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

 

The power of the Holy Spirit

” But when he comes, the spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth, he will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming” JN 16:13 The Holy Spirit is a very powerful force, this force is within us all, as it guides us like Jesus does, to walk this journey in peace and as we strive for the path of Righteousness. Today is Pentecostal Sunday, this is the celebration of the finding of the Catholic Church, the very place we enter into the house of God. This is also the day that Jesus came to his Disciples and spoke to them, giving them their direction for which to travel, from here the Disciples went each their own way and gathering others, to speak the true words of Jesus Christ, these gathering places are what we know today as the house of God, or the Catholic Church, where we go today to pray and ask for his forgiveness of our sins. The power of the Holy Spirit operates totally on trust, the trust we have of ourselves and all those around us, in a perfect world the power of the Holy Spirit is alive and well within our souls, when we trust in our selves and trust each other always, but unfortunately within this society of distrust, the Holy Spirit lies dormant within us, as we never give it a chance to shine within us. Trust within this society is our biggest disconnect, without the trust we struggle to move forward with confidence. We become so lost within the clouds of our judgments, we then try to move forward with no direction, with no trust we then become defiant and let the power of denial enter within us, as the Holy Spirit lies dormant within us, through denial we then lose all sight of what reality is, to which we then try to make up our own, which a lot of times, has us wandering this journey, instead of truly walking this journey with confidence. Pentecostal Sunday is a celebration of life for each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life, it is a time for us to rediscover Jesus Christ, as we get back to truly feeling that Holy Spirit that is within us. When we think we can’t do something and like a miracle, we suddenly are doing what we thought we couldn’t, that is the power of the Holy Spirit, through the trust of ourselves and the Holy spirit, Jesus speaks to us without talking, as then what we thought was impossible, suddenly becomes very possible and now, we walk with confidence on our paths of this journey through life. The trust goes both ways between us and Jesus, just as the trust goes both ways between us and all those around us. The Holy Spirit may seem like a Magician doing his magic, but it is more like when we have that AH HA!!! moment, when one minute we seem like we can’t do something, than the next minute we are doing it with confidence, as all comes together in harmony, so we than can walk our paths of this journey, not just with confidence, but in peace and happiness always. ” The power of the Holy Spirit is deep within all our souls, we just have to acknowledge it to truly feel it’s true power” ” Pentecostal Sunday is the birthday of the Catholic Church, where we all gather to listen as Jesus speaks to us and guides us to the path of righteousness” ” The Holy Spirit is the magician of our souls and with it’s power we can do anything we want to do” ” With the trust of ourselves and of each other, the power of the Holy Spirit will always be there with it’s magic, as we do anything we want to do”

May the weight of the world be not a burden anymore

With yet another season of Lent and this being the blessed Holy week, if you look deeply into this picture and have complete faith in Jesus Christ our Savior, then you can see the face of Jesus Christ wearing his crown, that he wore, while he sacrificed himself, for us all, showing of how deeply he loved us all.

We all walk a path through this journey of life and with this journey comes many ups and downs, many triumphs as well as pit falls, many life events that not only will change the course of our paths, but will also bring much change to ourselves as well. A lot of times these events come to us not of our own, but in ways from another, just looking to control all that is around them? When these life events come to us and we do not take care of them properly, we then become silent along our paths, as we try to move forward while burying deeply our true feelings and emotions, we then forget of truly who we are and project forward someone who is truly of who we are not, as we are now hiding from one another, but because we are hiding from our selves, to ease the pain and hurt from the event that has come to us. When we hide deep within ourselves, we then totally forget about that little child within us, we cramp that child to the point that, we do not let that child grow properly within us, as we then do not grow properly within the world around us, when that child is healthy, we then are healthy as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

To let that child grow properly, then not only it will be healthy and productive, we then become healthy and productive throughout this journey. True when things happen our true instinct is to protective ourselves I get that, but the growth of that inner child is just as important as well. When we become scarred from a young age and suppress everything deep inside, that child then has no room to grow and as we think it is not effecting us, it it effecting us deeper than we think at that time, nobody ever wants to admit to failure, as when we do then we think all will see us as weak? We are never weak, it is our perception that makes us think we are. Even if our troubles come from another, or another thing, these things still harm us so much, that we will do anything to hide the pain and hurt from them, so we then suppress a big part of who we are, so deep within, that we forget of truly who we are. When we do hurt and when we have buried deeply of who we truly are, we also forget that having a voice will help heal us from our troubles, by voice I mean not yelling and screaming so others will think we are some crazed lunatic? but actually speaking out in a civilized way, so we than can stay in touch with our true feelings and emotions, while keeping the feeling of empathy close to our hearts, which help us heal from our troubles to move forward better and not stepping backwards, which will keep us hurting deep within.

That little child within yes is always there, whether we chose to believe or not, just like Jesus is always there with his love for us, whether we chose to believe and have faith in him, the real problem then lies within us and how we deal with each event or situation that may come to us. the solution is to stay in the moment, stay in touch with your true feelings and emotions always, never lose sight of who you truly are, regardless of what others may say or do to you. When you project yourself as strong, others will see you as strong, keeping the control hungry ones at bay, so you than can move forward better and stronger, with each step through this journey of life.

We don’t have to be silent and we don’t have to be too voice tress, we just have to be true to ourselves, stay true to our inner child, stay true to our real feelings and emotions, so we all than can be healthy, we all can then be respectful of one another without bringing harm to each other and as we all do this, we all can move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths throughout this journey of life.

” Let the burden go as the weight becomes lighter, helping you move forward with ease”

” Holy week is a time to not just reflect of yourself, but reflect of Jesus Christ and truly feeling his love deep within your heart”

” We all perceive the same things differently which may divide us if we do not stay true to who we are”

” We all have an inner child within us, which helps us to grow in a healthy way when we don’t abuse or neglect that child”
