There comes a time
Got no patience to search
For peace of mind
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?
Poem “Deception” written
By Bishop Dr. FS Bhatti
Purpose of Delilah
Blinding and deceiving
Purpose of world
Greening garden and deceiving
Purpose of Jacob
Receiving but deceiving
Purpose of Jezebel
Believing but deceiving
Purpose of Robber on Cross
Believing but receiving
Purpose of Prince of peace
Seeding but bleeding
Critical Summary of Poem “Deception”
• It is famous story of Old Testament “Samson and Delilah” How she did come purposely to “Samson” to deceive and she blinded his eyes for anger of his mother and king.
• The world shows green garden first of all but inwardly deceive.
• Jacob, Brother of Esau, Isaac loved Esau but his mother loved Jacob, she prepared him to deceive his father and his brother Esau to get the blessing of his father Isaac.
• Jezebel spirit is in Revelation of St. John in New Testament, spiritual polluted women who believes but deceives like Ahab’s of old testament had same belief
• Along with Jesus there was two more person on the cross, both were robbers and murderers, one of Robber accepted Jesus Christ as King by believing and receiving paradise by faith on the cross at that moment.
• Prince of peace, Lord of Lords and King of Kings is the title of Lord Jesus Christ who came according to the prophesies of prophets into this world for sinner and wrecked lives. In His holy love sow seeding righteousness in this world but he was crossed for not mixing up with world under the world’ control system. He did sow seeds of righteous, liberty, love, forgiveness. But he himself is blooded on the cross without any sin and mistakes for human.
I praise God for our Bother Farhad.
Please keep our persecuted Family in the east in prayer.
Remember The Faithfulness Of God in all of the previous “Red Seas” He’s parted in your life with His Great Mercy.
Glory to God for this revelation/reminder today! The people, variables, and circumstances may be different in every storm and season we go through, but God is consistent in His Sovereignty. God’s Favor and Faithfulness remain the same no matter what we are dealing with. Just as He provided for us in all the other seasons of life, He will do it again.
Praise God! I know that’s what I needed to hear today. The Holy Spirit is speaking. Are we listening?
God was with David as he took on the lion and the bear in The Bible. His Faithfulness was no different with Goliath. God is The same. He is steady. Your Heavenly Father is the only certainty you can count on down here under the sun.
The world is thirsty for new life and revival.
People are hurting and they need hope.
If you know Yeshua/Jesus, do not hesitate to share Him with the world! They need that Light!
There is a Kingdom of darkness on this earth under the rule of Satan, but don’t think for one minute that God cannot shake everything up in the blink of an eye! God OWNS all this.
Satan may be the prince of this world but God OWNS this world and everything else!
God will FIGHT for you and plead your cause if you just LET Him.
The only way to be Truly happy and at peace in this life (and the only way to Eternal life and to escape eternal damnation) is to surrender everything to Jesus Christ. To know Him is life and peace here and in the hereafter.
Cry out now. Help is only one prayer away.
You do not have to go to a church building to get help. Fellowship of Believers is vital and important, but we must all have our OWN personal relationship with God through His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ.
You are not over and no matter how dark it seems, know that with God ALL things are possible! ❤️
Standing in the hallway, I’m overwhelmed. My head is spinning. I feel just awful. Armies of racing thoughts invade my fresh-out-of-bed brain attacking in all out war. I ask myself why I feel down and drained and It’s like all at once, I get 5,000 responses in my head. Information overload.
The treadmill is broken and unrepairable, I need exercise. Because the area we live in now has mountains and we were in flat land for 2 years, my allergies are in full bloom this season. A bunch of other stuff trailed behind inside me until I went outside with the dogs. Still daylight at 8 p.m. and I remember why I love spring… I made sure the dogs were doing okay, then I just stood there beside this Bradford Pear tree in the middle of the lawn in front of the house. I gazed up at the sky, smoky gray. I thought about all of my problems and then just closed my eyes to feel God’s embrace. The evening breeze.
Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”
I felt a couple of drops hit my face a few minutes later and the dogs and I all went back inside.
It does the heart good to get out of the house and into nature. To look up at God so to speak, and away from my monitor sure felt good. I needed that hug. So bad!
God bless everyone tonight.

If you are reading this, perhaps the title caught your attention?
I share a message of truth, and a message of hope tonight.
For every scar, every battle lost, every tear… there is purpose.
Philippians 1:29 says “For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on Him, but also to suffer for his sake.”
That day when every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess, you will reap your reward. Don’t give up. And no matter what, do not ever stop praying. God is listening right now, waiting for you to ask Him for even greater things. Let us pray boldly, and pray in faith believing. For if we cannot believe God to heal a headache, how can we believe Him to heal a cancer? He’s got this.
May the Lord be with you tonight and keep you always.

I have found a beautiful video to show what it might look like if we were online chatting with God, or texting with Him. I would say this is pretty moving. 🙂
I found this through a friend. I love the other videos on this channel as well, and I wish there were many, many more! Enjoy!
“It is tomorrow that fills men with dread. God is there already. All the tomorrows of our life have to pass Him before they can get to us.”
