Lasting Investments

Growing up I was always looking for something bigger. A greater meaning. You know like they say, “More than this.”

But now at 30 years old I know why. I see clearly know why I have always longed for more, for something else.

This world is not my home. My body wasn’t created for the clothing of this planet or its ideal woman body type and swimsuit figure.

There’s music running through my veins, songs that I can’t sing here…because I don’t know all the words. Once a Christian is living in Heaven in the new incorruptible body, there’s no sin, nor any mortal limits. I have the dance inside of me, but I can’t perform it out in the mortal body I currently operate in.  My body is not me. The body does not reflect who I am. My spirit does. The way I treat other human beings, the way I spend my time, the words I choose when I speak. What’s actually in my heart.

Kindness trumps being a single digit jean size at every moment.

When I was a kid I always heard adults say that it’s what’s on the inside that counts. I thought they were out of their mind and just trying to make us all feel better. I was wrong. Friend, it really IS what’s on the inside that counts.

Because it’s what is inside of you that LIVES ON eternally.

Believe it or not, you are a spirit being. You just have a temporary, mortal body of flesh for now. There are 2 eternal worlds.

It seems like so many people live their lives on fast forward in today’s world. They work overtime to pay the bills, the rent/mortgage and try to do the best they can. Looking forward to the summer vacation (if they are financially able to do so), and counting on that 401K unawares to the future ahead.  And it is all temporal.

Houses break and need fixing. Vacations don’t last and neither do the souvenirs. Make memories… Invest in the lives of your children, families, or spouse.  Investments like those are everlasting. The good things we leave behind us when we go are later exchanged for Heavenly rewards and Crowns. We are saved by Grace through faith, but we can’t harbor hatred and ill feelings toward others inside. We are to love others and love God with all our hearts. The first time I heard that, I was like uh-oh!!! I had some envy and bitterness, a few grudges on my back. I believed in my heart there was NO WAY I could possibly love EVERY one! Later on as I walked with Jesus, I found that we must, and we can!

Ezekiel 36:26-27 (KJV)

26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

 

We just have to ask God The Father for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, for Him to change us because we can’t do it ourselves. I have a new nature right now because of HIS work. I TRULY had stone in my heart! But Jesus made me new!!! If there’s something that you believe is just impossible to change or overcome, it is..without Jesus. Come to Christ today and find peace and healing. Find Salvation for eternity at The Cross 🙂

You are loved more than you could ever know by God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! The Rapture is about to happen any moment now. Jesus is taking His Church out before the 7 year Tribulation. We are at the end of the story of man.

Ready for Bed?

Lay down not only your body tonight, but all of your worries, doubts, & fears of anxiety as well. Spread out comfortably in bed and take a moment to ponder this night. All of today is now a memory and part of the past. If you see the dawn, you’ve received the gift of another day, another chance to do what it is you need to do, to make a difference in the lives of others, to share your story and inspire others. Tomorrow could be the best day of your life. That miracle you’ve been praying for could unravel this day.

Either way, my friend, remember that the absence of anxieties and fear is called faith. Where there is actual and 100% faith there is no doubt, fear, or worry. Faith is a growing thing. Over time and with practice and input it becomes greater, packing such a powerful punch. You know you’re gonna get knocked down from time to time. That’s life. But with faith…there is no doubt in all the fibers of your being on earth. You stand fearless, knowing there will be pain, which is unpleasant and uncomfortable…but you know in your heart…your SOUL. You know you can. You know who you are.

You know this because you know Him.

You know God.

He’s listening as you get into bed, and the rest of the time 24/7. Talking to Him can be as short and easy as “Help!” He knows what you need before you even ask.

The Creator of the Universe flung the shimmery stars into His velvety night sky, twinkling as diamonds. Like the moon, and the sun they testify to His great Power & Glory every moment in every day.

Close your eyes. No matter where you are. The eastern or western world. Persecuted, or tormented inside of yourself. God’s got this.

My Priorities Have Changed.

The things ‘I want for Christmas’ or in this life, have changed over the years. The new & shiny, black Cadillac, the fancy home in an untouchable neighborhood by the ocean side, that private practice I’m not opening, trips to Europe or exotic islands…that’s not me anymore. I want to ride home on the wings of Angels someday..to my mansion on streets of gold, by the River of Life, flowing from the Throne of God-that is incomparable to any body of water on this earth. I don’t have to have a PhD to get in.

Amen.

Jealousy: A Poison to both Mind & Body

Recently, I began thinking about how much time I spent in my younger years of life (and even now) looking at the lives of others, seeing how green their grass was as opposed to mine…

Taking the time to open the eyes of my heart and  addressing the blessings of another creates an awareness of jealousy. I’ve found that once we analyze this we can easily see the humanness behind it all. We see our insecurities, fears, and the comparison of our lives to those of others (which is pointless and only encouraged by evil to ultimately destroy us with the hardening of the heart). The feelings of anger and frustration steal our joy. If this isn’t addressed to be taken care of, all of the potential inside of us, along with our very own gifts is waste.

The amount of energy put into the concern of some other person’s success, blessings, and the fruits of their labor could be used to accomplish things in our own lives.

So, be yourself, changing the world in the way that only you can!

I know that I need to be vocal and take action to express my delight in the success of others. I must keep my eyes fixed on my own homework, as copying leads to failure. I need to practice selflessness, thanking God for it all in praise and prayers of gratitude. In being observant of the needs of others, and not mine alone, I will live a far more fulfilling life. The peace is like nothing else.

God bless, dear friends.
