Just because you do not see him…….

” My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me”

Psalm 101:6

Hope for today:

It’s tempting to look at men and women in scripture and think they were superhuman or ultra holy. The same God who walked with them walks with us, we just need to remain faithful knowing his eyes are on us.

The time that Jesus Christ came and walked his journey here with us is so far removed, that within todays society we just do not acknowledge his existence? This is the problem today, and what has led us into a life of non faithfulness, which then leads us into a world of no hope, as without faith there will never be hope. Jesus is within us all and when we keep our faith in him as well as ourselves, we can clearly feel his warmth within our hearts and souls. That warmth you feel in your heart, that is the love of Jesus comforting you, which then you share that love with all those around you. This love is all natural to us and very easy to share, the hatred we see is not natural, and is learned from other sources such as Satan himself, with the hate only shows not just how cold our hearts have become, but how cold we have become toward one another.

There are three words that best describe this society today, power, control and greed. With the far left liberal media and the so called leader’s within the walls of Washington DC taking center stage through it all. All these Individuals have an agenda whether they admit it or not? These agendas will benefit them only and leave the rest of us out in the cold. Their biggest agenda is to bring more unwanted drama to us all, they will tell us only what they want us to know, and never tell us the real truth, they will tell us so many lies that they themselves will then become engulfed in the world of denial, which has them telling so many lies, that they lose touch with true reality. The power of denial is so strong, that it will strip you of who you truly are, as now you yourself will not even recognize yourself, even when looking into the mirror.

Throughout this journey of life, we never know what lurks around each corner that is in front of us? Just like this picture as you stare into the thick forest, you do not know what lurks deep within the thick woods? This is where the faith and the trust in yourself and in Jesus Christ comes in, as then you can have the hope to walk through with confidence, as now you have become better and stronger for it, as you walk your path of this journey through life with great hope moving forward. Our so called leaders and the far left liberal media with their sick twisted agendas, have lost this concept, which they then bring us their far fetched rhetoric and propaganda’s.

These storm clouds hovering above these mountains may look mean and nasty? Yes the storms can wreak havoc and bring damage, but when you are prepared, and keep to your faith in yourself as well as Jesus Christ, this is the confidence you need, to walk through these storms unscathed, as now you have reached the light and the bright sun on the other side, which brings you the peace and the joy that you are searching for. This journey of life has many paths for us to walk, yes we may take the wrong path that will bring us many storms, but if we never keep to the faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, we will never get to the right path, that will bring us great hope, within the peace and the joy, that we all are searching for.

Just because you do not see Jesus Christ, does not mean he does not exist? He is within us all, he warms our hearts with his love for us then to share with each other, he lives within our souls and guides us along our paths, as we then move forward throughout this journey, so we can get to that path of righteousness, which brings us all the peace and happiness we so deserve. Just as God brought to us his son, Jesus one day will bring to us his son, so we can be renewed into the faith, and see all the hope right before us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. What we all lose sight of today is, the fact that we all have lost that feeling deep within of the love of Jesus Christ within our hearts and soul, we let the power of denial control every fiber of our being. Then when denial is front and center within us, we then lose who we truly are and suppress it so deep within, that know we move forward portraying this fake self to those around us and we black out what is real, to replace it with what is fake. Just like we have many streets to drive within this society, so to are their many paths to walk throughout this journey, without the faith of ourselves and Jesus Christ, there will never be any hope moving forward.

” Just because you do not see Jesus Christ, does not mean he does not exist”

” We drive many streets in our lives, we forget that there are also many paths to walk through this journey as well”

” When the storms encompass us all, we need faith and confidence to have the hope to get through them unscathed”

” 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”

” For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you prepared in the sight of all the peoples”.

*** LK 2:30-31***

With yet another Christmas in our rear view mirror and a New Year lurking in our future, let’s look a bit deeper into what is Christmas. Christmas is a whole lot more then giving gifts or even receiving gifts, Christmas is the birth of Jesus Christ and even further, it is the creation of a family between Mary, Joseph, and Jesus. When Jesus came and walked his path here with us, we all focused on him, while Mary and Joseph went to the back burner of life, but if you took the time to notice, both of them were never to far from their son. Even at the time of death for Jesus, his mother Mary was right there with her son, while her love spoke loudly among us all. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph became a family when Jesus was born, they then built that strong foundation and bond that family is, which today we have gotten away from, and all the ugliness and hatred around us today, proves even further, of just how much we have swayed away from what a true family is.

The last few decades we as a society have wandered away from the true meaning of family, we have wandered so far away that, families have become broken, and through all the divorces, there is a whole generation that have grown up with only one parent, making them incomplete. True of the family foundation being solid and strong, but over time and without tending to the decay of the foundation, it then will crumble and fall, which is what we are seeing, with all the ugliness and the hatred around us. Family is what helps us all grow into a society of many, each parent in their own way, teaches everything we need to know to be better and stronger with each step moving forward, The Mother will teach us love, compassion as well as many other factors, the Father will teach us strength, respect as well as many other factors, we need both to be complete, when one is missing, we then are incomplete, the foundation then stops being built, and is so weak, that it does not take much to corrupt who we are.

Our family here on Earth is, a Mother, a Father and Siblings, our spiritual family encompasses a whole lot more, as each of us are brothers and sisters within the society of God. This spiritual family is a lot bigger then our family here on Earth, the family foundation starts being built within our family here on Earth, then continues as we grow within the society, so when we are within a broken family and the foundation stops being built, now we have no basis to build from within the society of many. With all the problems and the troubles that the year 2020 has brought to us all, is a bi product from the last 10+ years, and the fact that we all have been suffering from the effects of all the broken families around us. Now the family you are in may be complete and you may be complete, but all the other families around us and especially the broken ones, whether we want to admit it or not, have effected each of us, in one way shape or form.

Nothing really ever lasts and there will be much change all around us, just like the rock in this picture, you think a rock is solid? but when the rock is submerged in the water for a long time, and then becomes free from the water and into the rays of the sun, it can break in two just like this one. Well the family foundation is much like this rock and needs constant work all the time, to keep it strong and to stand up to the test of time. Each member of the family has their own part in building the foundation, and when one of those parts are missing, now the building stops and the incompletion begins, leaving all to try to find something to fill the void, from the broken family foundation.

Yes it is true that we can succeed along this journey with only one parent, but to truly succeed along this journey, and to feel totally complete as we walk our path of this journey, it takes a complete family, for each of us to feel complete, as we grow into a society of many. Throughout the years all our lives have changed in a negative way, now it is on we the people, that can change it back in a positive way, and in a way that Jesus showed us here on his journey, right now we are all hurting with all this negative change, the time is now to change positively, so we all can get back to peace and happiness, and away from all this ugliness and hatred. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, and it starts with family helping us grow correctly within the society of many.

” Family Time whether spiritual or Earthly, has a foundation to nurture and grow”

” The birth of Jesus Christ brought forth the feeling of family and the building of the family foundation”
