Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 10.5.18 ♥

🎶It’s alright
There comes a time
Got no patience to search
For peace of mind
Layin’ low
Want to take it slow
No more hiding or
Disguising truths I’ve sold
Everyday it’s something
Hits me all so cold
Find me sittin’ by myself
No excuses, then I know🎶

This song came out in 1994, I was at the hight of my alcohol and drug use. “No Excuses” off of Alice In Chains album Jar of Flies was written by Jerry Cantrell for Layne Staley about his drug use. As I listened to this Alice In Chains song again today, I can see it being more universal than that. I think everyone has a time in their life that they just don’t have the motivation and patience to deal with others. Even family and friends. Depression and addiction is a B#tch. But if you tell people “I’m depressed” most won’t understand. They’ll take it as just an excuse to get out of doing something, or an excuse to isolate, or an excuse to get drunk and high. I think the lyrics definitely seem to fit Layne’s attitude towards the last years of his life. He knew he was depressed and a drug addict. He knew he was throwing his talent away. He didn’t want to lie and give some bullcrap excuse for his bad behavior. He, unlike most people in that position, was honest. There was “No Excuses”, so he didn’t give any. In many many ways I was just like Layne in my old life in this fallen world. The difference is I didn’t die in my depression and addiction. Today thanks to YeHoVaH/God, I’m sober, strong in my faith and even writing a book (hope to have it out soon friends) YeHoVaH/God is calling me to make an impact with my book and He has provided me the means to fulfill that calling. Even Moses didn’t feel he was qualified to do what YeHoVaH/God had called him to do. All Moses could see was his own unworthiness. To YeHoVaH/God there are “No Excuses” for not fulfilling the calling that He has put on our lives. When He calls us we can say, “I’m not ready, I’m not worthy, I can’t do it, and so on. But listen, there are “No Excuses” that matter to YeHoVaH/God. When He gives us a calling in our lives, He already has a plan for us to fulfill that calling. The only thing that holds us back is US! Facebook friends, if your fighting addiction, depression, illness or a whole host of reasons your not fulfilling your calling and making an impact. Please remember, if you have given your heart to YeHoVaH/God through Yeshua/Jesus, there are “No Excuses.” You have been given everything you need to make an impact. All you have to do is step out in faith and do it. Have you given your heart to YeHoVaH/God through Yeshua/Jesus ? Have you accepted Him as you savior and accepted His forgiveness of your sins? If the answer is yes, then make an impact for the Kingdom. If your answer is no, then give Him your heart today and join those who are making a positive impact on our world. Amen?

Tonight You Are LOVED.

Child of God, if you feel you’re at the end of your rope, ask The Lord to tie a knot. If you’re torn apart and overflowing with tears, look in the mirror. You’re alive and still here. God saw you through countless other nights that you despised. God is ALL you need. GOD has to be ALL you need.

NOBODY ELSE can save you! NOBODY else WILL save you! NOBODY CAN complete you.

Like Brother Marcus Rogers is preaching, your mate should compliment you.

Nobody and nothing else can have that Sacred place in your heart. That’s for God. There’s places for others, but He is our TRUE and ONLY Rock and our first Love! The Son Of God is our Everything!

Revelation 2:4 “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.”

Hold onto The Lord tonight and every night.

He’s the only one that will ALWAYS be there.

He said He’d never leave us nor forsake us. He means it.

Jesus/Yeshua is The only MAN (The God Man) that will Forever catch EVERY tear you EVER cry.

He’s Perfect.

Don’t set your affections on the things of this world. We’re not here to stay anyways.

No matter how heavy your pain or even how dark the night, it’s temporary!

These light afflictions cannot compare to the glory that awaits us! Heaven is our Home!

Don’t look at what is seen! Be faith-driven, not fear driven. The Righteous are as bold as a lion.

Tonight He’s enough.

In every trial, Jesus/Yeshua is IT for us ❤️

Not just because He has to be or He should be.

He’s enough because we love Him.

He’s enough because He’s proven Himself Faithful and True! He holds the keys to death, Hell, and the grave and because of HIM and what He did for you, there is ABSOLUTE, Complete FREEDOM!

Nobody can love you like The Son Of God.

Hold onto Him.

He’s holding onto you.

He’s holding onto all of us far more than we’ll ever know this side of Heaven.

Amen. Rest well in The Lord, Precious Ones.

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 9.6.18 ♥

🎶We chase misprinted lies
We face the path of time
And yet I fight
And yet I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home🎶

I always thought Nutshell by Alice In Chains as Layne’s living suicide note. Beautiful vocals & some of the most tasteful and soulful guitar playing you’ll ever hear. The singer Layne Staley died from a mixture of heroin and cocaine, known as speedball. The death certificate reads Staley’s death resulted from “an acute intoxication due to the combined effects of opiate (heroin) and cocaine.” The autopsy concluded that Staley died on April 5, two weeks before his body was found, and the same day that fellow grunge pioneer Kurt Cobain died by suicide in 1994. Staley’s death was classified as “accidental.” When I heard Layne passed I felt, “Layne wore his soul on the outside. He was luminous … too tender for this world. He was an amazing musician, an inspiration, and a comfort to so many. He made great music and gifted it to the world.” Anyone can become addicted to anything. There are many addictions in life, eating, smoking, booze, sex, pornography, the stock market, gambling, tattoos, lying, stealing, gossiping, et cetera. Addiction has a very subtle nature about it, a deceptive element, overcoming the victim before one even realizes what has happened. The nature of addiction is that a person gets sucked in before they know it, entangled hopelessly in the web of a deadly Black Widow spider. That is the nature of sin and addiction, the more you try to escape and free yourself, the more entangled you become. This is why it is so critically important that a person be born again, having the Holy Spirit coming to live within them (Romans 8:9). The very second you trust upon Yeshua/Jesus, the only begotten Son of YeHoVaH/God, your sins are forgiven and the Holy Spirit comes to indwell your body. This is the only true and lasting hope for addicts. Believe me I’ve been there! Life is too short to allow sin to overcome and ruin one’s life. The way to avoid addiction is to be aware that it can easily happen if you’re not careful. Our sicko society places all sorts of temptations, evil influences, lusts, worldly music, and other harmful things in front of our youth, while never warning them of what can happen. You never hear warnings about the consequences of fornication, abortion, pornography, homosexuality, feminism, divorce, or other sins. Instead teens are handed condemns at government schools and Planned Herodhood is invited into each school. It’s insane! The safest way to prevent becoming addicted is to have the Biblical mindset of 1st Timothy 6:8, “And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.” Hasatan’s crowd can only tempt you if you desire something. YeHoVaH/God says to be satisfied with simply food and clothing. In all honesty, you don’t need all the electronic toys and gadgets, cellphones, internet, new car, et cetera. Those who live for materialistic things are some of the most miserable, mean, and angry people in the world. Death is right around the corner. You cannot take any of it with you. Only what’s done for Yeshua/Jesus will last. Certainly it is ok to own possessions and a nice home, car, whatever, but don’t ever prioritize money, career, or things above truth, doing what’s right, treating people as you want to be treated, and obeying YeHoVaH/God with a grateful heart. Facebook friends, the most important decision you’ll ever make is where you’re going to spend eternity after the resurrection. The decision is in fact yours alone to make. I’ve already made my choice. How about you?

Personal Journey

Do You Know What it’s like?

Have you ever had a friend come to you for advice or just looking for a shoulder to cry on? Maybe on some accounts you had no idea what to say. Maybe their pain was too heavy. Maybe you just could not relate at all, so all you could do was listen?

Jesus/Yeshua knows what it’s like every time.

Yeshua knows what the worst of the worst feels like.

Sometimes as human beings we just feel alone. Sometimes we feel like absolutely NOBODY gets it! We sit and scream in frustration. We grit our teeth and throw punches. Maybe you hang up on people… Maybe you don’t answer the door. Maybe you keep a journal. Maybe you pray. Whatever the case, we all suffer and have hard times in this life.  That is when you can look to The Cross and see that The Lord Jesus/Yeshua paid for you and every moment of pain is not in vain. God has plans for all of us. ♥

All this reminds me of these lyrics:

“When you feel like you’re alone in your sadness
And it seems like no one in this whole world cares
And you want to get away from the madness
You just call my name and I’ll be there
You just call my name and I’ll be there.”   

Check out this song by Christian rock band Third Day called “Call My Name.”

“Call My Name” lyrics

It’s been so long since you felt like you were loved
So what went wrong
But do you know there’s a place where you belong
Here in my armsWhen you feel like you’re alone in your sadness
And it seems like no one in this whole world cares
And you want to get away from the madness
You just call my name and I’ll be there
You just call my name and I’ll be there

The pain inside has erased your hope for love
But soon you will find
That I’ll give you all that your heart could ever want
And so much more

You just call my name
You just call my name

Call my name, say it now
I want you to never doubt
The love I have for you is so alive

Call my name, say it now
I want you to never doubt
The love I have for you is so alive

You just call my name
You just call my name
You just call my name now

The love I have for you is so alive
The love I have for you is so alive
You just call my name
You just call my name
You just call my name


All of this brings me to my point. The Lord started this blog post with His own Word. Here are a couple of Amazing Verses from The Bible. My personal favorite chapter in The Word of God is Isaiah 53 because I really appreciate how my Savior poured out His Soul, for my broken soul and all the rest of the brokenhearted. For ALL the world… ♥

Isaiah 53:11-12 King James Version (KJV)

11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.


 

Precious readers, you are beautiful. God loves you so much that He gave His only Begotten Son for you. In all honesty, I don’t fully understand it myself. Day by Day The Spirit of God teaches me and The Lord Yeshua Himself opens up His Heart and my eyes to help me understand The Cross and what He did for me, for ALL of the world. All of us!

I love Yeshua because He is so good, He is so tender. God became a man and took EVERYTHING for us, so The most Precious Fellowship between Father God (our Creator) and His Creation would be restored! It’s a learning process. The human heart can harden. The human heart can break. The soul can be broken. Our pain can clog up our feelings. This is why we read of Amazing verses like this one below:

Psalm 51:10  (KJV)

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Have you ever heard of being jaded?

According to Merriam-Webster,

Definition of jaded

1 : fatigued by overwork : exhausted

  • a jaded horse

2 : made dull, apathetic, or cynical by experience or by having or seeing too much of something

  • jaded network viewers
  • jaded voters

The Aerosmith song Jaded comes to mind. I am not promoting it, but I remember when I was a teenager and the song Jaded was a smash hit on mainstream radio. I recall the music video. According to ultimateclassicrock.com the video synopsis is this:

A young woman who’s numb to the touch of reality and eventually comes to her senses by escaping the decadence of her grand surroundings.

 

Lyrics to Jaded by Aerosmith

[Verse 1]
Hey j-j-jaded, you got your mama’s style
But you’re yesterday’s child to me
So jaded
You think that’s where it’s at
But is that where it’s supposed to be
You’re getting it all over me, ex-rated

[Chorus]
My my baby blue
Yeah I been thinking about you
My my baby blue
Yeah you’re so jaded
And I’m the one that jaded you

[Verse 2]
Hey j-j-jaded
In all it’s misery
It will always be what I love and hated

And maybe take a ride to the other side
We’re thinking of
We’ll slip into the velvet glove
And be jaded

[Chorus]
My my baby blue
Yeah I’m thinking about you
My my baby blue
Yeah I’m so jaded
And baby I’m afraid of you

[Verse 3]
Your thinking’s so complicated
I’ve had it all up to here

But it’s so overrated
Love and hated
Wouldn’t trade it
Love me jaded
Hey j-j-jaded
There ain’t no baby please
When I’m shooting the breeze with her
When everything you see is a blur
And ecstasy’s what you prefer

[Outro]
My my baby blue
Yeah I’m talking about you

My my baby blue
Yeah I’ve been thinking about you
My my baby blue
Yeah you’re so jaded
Baby
Jaded
Baby
You’re so jaded
Because I’m the one that jaded you


White Oleander

I like the above quote from The Movie White Oleander. That’s another blog post in itself, but I think that’s really cool. I can personally relate to that as well…

Glory to God, all of this stuff so far brings back even more discussion.

When this song came out, I was a very troubled young girl. I loved this song because that is how I felt. Jaded.

bulimiame

I was constantly being rejected by people, especially men (boys at the time) in the romantic sense of relationships. It all goes back to my testimony that The Lord revealed this year.

I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. All of these feelings ran on and on like a broken record until after many giant, heavy mistakes, The Lord intervened and saved me. He’s so Good! God has resurrected me in all my ashes, giving me His Beauty. I am far better off than when I was first broken. I am no longer jaded. I AM ALIVE.

I Praise The LORD for resurrecting my brain and intellect.

I Praise The LORD for healing and restoring my body and soul.

I Praise The LORD that He has made me FREE!

Freedom is for EVERYBODY and it’s FREE! Glory to God!

PRAISE YESHUA!  †

My Favorite Song in The Whole World! “The Dark Hills” by Day of Fire

This is my most favorite song of all time EVER, in the whole world!

This is RAW EMOTION. The human soul crying out for his Creator like NEVER before! This is pain and pure anguish crying out for LIFE, which is Jesus Christ alone. Yeshua!

This song means everything to me and The LORD wants me to share it with you all tonight. It was shared with me by a very special person. This person is very dear to my heart. He knows Jesus. I never knew a man could be kind. Christ manifesting in someone is a Marvelous thing. The Spirit of God blows my mind. I have personally had bad experiences with men all my life. It starts with my testimony which I’ve yet to share. The Lord has revealed a lifetime worth of new information about everything. I never thought possible. To God be the Glory for all this!

Anyways, Father God wants you to receive this HOPE tonight!

Salvation in Jesus Christ ALONE is only one breath away. Cry out, friend. I pray these lyrics stir your soul with a longing like you never thought possible. A longing for LOVE. A longing and a yearning for Jesus Christ. Yeshua.

Praise THE LORD!!! 🙂

Day Of Fire Lyrics

“The Dark Hills”

[Verse 1:]
Sittin in the dark shakin in a cold wind dyin to get well keep trying but I’m broken
A kiss on my lips that use to thrill me, if I go another day it’s gonna kill me
Slipped into a dream woke up in a nightmare scars on my skin don’t know how they got there
How heavy was the crown of thorns? I wonder if I’m to far gone?

[Chorus:]
They say Jesus walked the dark hills He broke bread with beggars and thieves
If I cry out in this darkness, if I fall down on my knees
If He walks the dark hills, will He come for me? Will He come save me?

[Verse 2:]
Searching for the truth through stained glass windows covered up in shame things that only I know
Strike a match and light another candle, raise my hands a sing a pretty song.
If anybody knew this ugliness inside me would they throw a stone would the crucify me?
How Heavy was the crown of thorns? I wonder if I’m to far gone?

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
How Heavy was the crown of thorns? I wonder if I’m to far gone?

[Chorus 3:]
They say Jesus walks the dark hills He breaks bread with beggars and thieves
When I cry out in this darkness, When I fall down on my knees
When He walks the dark hills, I know He’ll come for me. I know He’ll come save me.

What Must I do to be saved? Where Can I do it? And Where Must I Go?

From Brother Chad’s YouTube Channel:

Most people when you ask them claim to be Born Again..Most people claimed to be saved..but what does that Truly mean????

As we race toward the soon coming of the Lord Jesus Christ….the deception is ramping up….

This Is My Most Important Video I Have Ever Done. Time is truly Short…The Prophetic Superstorm is gaining speed like never before as we approach the Glorious Coming of the Messiah Jesus Christ . The Most Important Message that needs to go out is the only Truth that matters….That Truth is Jesus Christ…Him and Him alone is the only entrance into the Kingdom of God…Just as it was in the Days of Noah…there was one door into the Ark for safety…everyone aboard the Ark was spared from the horrors of the flood that destroyed everything else….Jesus Christ is that door! You must enter into that door for eternal safety! The door is still open but it is closing fast….the best decision of your eternity can be made right now! Right where you stand! Jesus Is knocking at the door of your heart! Will you let him in???? Help me share this with as many friends and family members as possible…because truly the Day is Approaching! The King is coming!

Romans 10:9-10King James Version (KJV)
