Is It All Getting to You?

Are you tired of the same old thing? Are you frustrated with your relationships, your job (or lack of)? Are you depressed and living in despair? All is bleak, you’re broken and worn. Can’t take it anymore… What’s the point of it all?

The world is hurting right now. So many people are currently facing these dead-end type of situations and obstacles in their lives. More people than you can imagine are at their wits end right now. These problems are just monumental! They are like giant walls. We cannot get around nor climb over.

It’s no coincidence. Everything has gone haywire, but the world is too busy and spinning so fast that nobody can see what’s happening before their very eyes and in their very lives. And face it. We are distracted on every side with the smart phones, tablets, all sorts of electronic gadgets. Social Media..keeping up with everyone…spending lots of time online…movies, T.V. and all…

The point is that most people don’t want to deal with it. The truth isn’t always friendly. We don’t like being told we’re wrong-at least I know I don’t. But I was wrong about it all. Then I woke up to reality and saw the world for what it really is.  And what a rude awakening is was when I realized how deep the pit was. The rut that I found myself in. I couldn’t cut it with today’s world and I was self medicating.

Making changes in our lives is quite uncomfortable. But one day I answered the door when The Lord Jesus Christ, The Son of The Living God Jehovah (The God of The Bible) came knocking. I could have ignored Him as many times before, but He came to me at a time when I just couldn’t make it anymore. I couldn’t do this thing called life. He set me free from the bondage of sin. The old me is gone forever and I’m forgiven, reconciled to God by the Blood our Lord Jesus shed on The Cross. He saved a wretch like me. If I can trust Jesus to get me out of the pit, you can too. It’s more than a decision. It’s a new way of life!

We come to God just as we are with our dirtiness and brokenness and open wounds. Then God makes us clean, BRAND NEW through Jesus Christ! You don’t come to God perfect. He accepts us as we are and erases the past!

Things are growing darker in this world today-and if you seek to know God through His Son Jesus, you will be able to see with spiritual eyes for yourself. Friend, things are only going to get worse and coming to Christ, belonging to God is the only way out. Jesus is going to come and take those that are His away from the looming 7 year Tribulation written of in the Bible, The Word of God.  The New World Order is complete but cannot be implemented until The true followers of Christ are taken out of the way. The new one-world government, currency, Mark of The Beast (in the right hand or forehead…see Revelation Chapter 13) and revealing of the Antichrist (most likely Barack Obama, see Bible Verses About The Antichrist),  Right now it’s considered “not cool” to stand for God through Jesus Christ, the ONLY WAY to God, unlike what Oprah and many other deceivers are teaching. It is considered hate speech to stand for an absolute right and believe in an absolute wrong.  Nobody wants to offend anyone…

The Time is NOW. We aren’t guaranteed another breath. Choose Jesus and eternity in Heaven this moment BEFORE The Rapture!

Those who are left behind after the Rapture of the Church (When we are caught up with Jesus) will be faced with an excruciating choice—accept the mark of the beast in order to survive or face starvation and horrific persecution by the Antichrist and his followers. But those who come to Christ during this time, those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life (Revelation 13:8), will choose to endure, even to martyrdom.

My Greatest Struggle: I choose to carry my Cross. (a poem)

My Greatest Struggle

The Devil keeps throwin’ flames my way.
When my jeans are tight cuz of Chocolate Cake…

Brings me down & makes me gain weight.
It seems happiness I can no longer fake.

Sunday Mornings, its all I can take,
To just get dressed and not be late.

Time & time I’ve questioned why God did make me this way.
I fight the scales and morning walks, and the pounds just stay.

Sometimes I’m enabled, I cave, and have a bad day.
Sometimes I’m stronger, no workout delay.

I’m tired of fighting, on the ground I lay.

But, No more!
I choose to carry my cross, follow Jesus…come what may.

The Power of Our Words & The Tongue.

Death & Life are in the power of the tongue… -Proverbs 18:21

I found this poster via Google. It’s song lyrics to Speak Life by Christian artist, Toby Mac.

I never stop and think about how powerful what we say with our tongues really is. Whether it be truth or lie, it spreads. People remember it. It leaves them feeling a certain way. Positive or negative, once you shout it into the universe, its there. Forever. You can’t take it back.

Words can be like bullets, piercing the tender hearts of our fellow human beings, scarring their insides, and creating deception.

However, words can also be like the sweetest, comforting embrace from your mother, or the mother you never had. Kind of like the warmest blanket, fresh from the dryer, wrapped all around you, after coming in from a terrible storm.

We can discourage or encourage one another.

We can curse, we can pray.

We can criticize, we can motivate.

We can Speak Life or speak death.

I choose life.

You are not alone. You are not over. You are just beginning. This is the first day of the rest of your life!

God bless everyone!

Amen! ❤

Not The Number on The Scale…

“For years, I refused to think of my eating struggles as anything more than just a physical issue.

I didn’t pray about it, and I certainly didn’t ask God for help. I just mentally beat myself up over my lack of self-control.

My ever-increasing waistline and poor food choices were wreaking havoc on my body and honestly also my soul. Being ruled by anything other than God isn’t healthy spiritually, mentally or physically.

For years, I was overweight physically but underweight spiritually. Tying those two things together has finally allowed me to see why so many of my diet attempts failed. I needed to dig past the surface to the real heart and soul of my issues.

Yes, I want to get healthy, but my real goal isn’t a number on the scale, it’s peace.” – Lysa TerKeurst

Sentimental on this Sunday.

I found some old photos in one of my old, Oak desk’s drawers. I picked my favorite 4 and made this collage.

My daddy and mom top left, then over on the right top is where I’ve just put our pictures beside each other…

Below I’m in red for a high school Homecoming dance, and then the right bottom is my drum major pic for Marching Band. I had no clue how good I had it, and just how awesome things really were.

Leaving Heaven…

This beautiful song is from Christian singer/songwriter  Matthew West’s Christmas album, The Heart of Christmas & it features Vince Gill on guitar.

“Leaving Heaven”

Well, it’s been real nice living way up here
In paradise, over the atmosphere
But I can’t stay long, gotta make my way
I’m leaving Heaven todayYou see the world is dark and it needs a light
I’m gonna hang a star in the eastern sky
So everybody’s gonna know where I touch down
I’m leaving Heaven right now

I’m gonna walk around that broken Earth
Trading in these streets of gold
So if you ever wonder how much you’re worth
You should know
That you’re the reason why I’m leaving Heaven

Ain’t gonna be no kingdom, ain’t gonna be no crown
Just a little old manger, in a little old town
But it’ll do just fine for this humble King
I’m leaving Heaven let all the angels sing

I’m gonna walk around that broken Earth
Trading in these streets of gold
So if you ever wonder how much you’re worth
You should know
You’re the reason why I’m leaving Heaven

And when my time comes to an end
I’ll lay down my life like a truest friend
And when I get back home, I’m gonna make some room
So, don’t you worry, ‘cause I’m coming back for you

And you will say goodbye to that broken Earth
You’re gonna walk on streets of gold
And if you ever wonder what my love is worth
Well you should know
That I’m the reason you’ll be seeing Heaven
Oh, you’re the reason why I’m leaving Heaven
I’m leaving Heaven

Our King left Paradise…and became a man, only to be rejected, to punish and die for mankind. That’s Love. God is Love. This song is full of Love. I hope you will give it a listen 🙂

God bless, and Have a Merry Christmas!
