Can’t Get Out of Bed?

If all you got left is a whisper, praise HIM, for HE is worthy!

Ask JESUS for the will and ability to get out of bed today. Maybe you want to go back to bed when you finish your cereal after reading this. Believe me, I understand that. Maybe you have grown to hate the sunlight and just can’t face the days anymore. You don’t have it in you to go to the mailbox much less the gym…

But there is hope! JESUS CHRIST is The Answer! He is The Way, The Truth and The Life! No one comes to The Father but by Him. Why don’t you surrender this day, let it all out in a prayer. Maybe you can’t leave your house, but you can cry out to Jesus. He will never ever fail you. You will NEVER be alone ever again because The Holy Spirit of God will come to dwell inside of you and He will quicken you to a new Life in Christ.

It won’t be easy, but it’s beyond worth it and it is the best decision you could ever make. Jesus said in   Matthew 11:28-30,  

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.


The benefits of Christ are INFINITELY BEYOND THIS LIFE. The point of it all is truly the salvation of your soul! Don’t put it off another day. You don’t have to hurt alone anymore in this life. Jesus changes everything. And If your circumstances don’t change, you will have Someone AMAZING to help bear your burdens. There is life in Christ. Without Jesus you are dead. Your worst day as a Christian is incomparable to your best day as a lost sinner in a dark and dying world. Find ETERNAL LIFE and rest for your souls in Jesus alone, Beloved. God bless you dearly. Take it from someone whose been there.  ♥

Human-beings. Things that Shimmer.

Flesh melts like wax.

Cars bend and fall apart.

Houses need new roofs, plumbing…repairs.

Careers are solid until/if your health declines.

Money is hard for most to come by, yet so quickly it goes.

The things of this world will never truly make anyone happy.

We can’t ever completely catch up. The madness is endless.

We see the richest of rich having affairs, plastic surgery, sex changes, and all sorts of things because even having it ALL on earth is not enough (Just being very wealthy doesn’t mean that you are doing these). There’s always going to be a longing for something more, no matter what your place in society concerning money and all else.

It’s amazing how the majority of what’s on television today is reality t.v. & It’s also amazing what passes the approval to become a reality show. People seem to eat it up. Human beings are very much caught up in the things of this life while missing the point. What happened to classic sitcoms-fictional characters facing everyday life stuff? The world is all grown up now, and far less censored than when I was a kid.

How much further can we take it?

The person most dedicated to his or her faith is not immune. It is very easy to become distracted by the things that shimmer, the things the flood our homepages and Facebook News-feeds.

Human beings are silly little creatures. I mean, we really can be. It is so mortal, so fleshy of us, and so carnal to become envious, and eat jealousy. To hate people for things they’ve done to us, when the truth is, we are just as capable of doing the same stuff to them, whether we believe so or not. Forgiveness.

Nobody is better than anybody else in this world. I don’t see reason for one mortal to be great and another small. It doesn’t matter what your life looks like to someone else, its what it feels like to you.

What are you living for?

You may be in a place of peace, happiness, any of all sorts of points across the spectrum. Perhaps the opposite end, severely depressed, and even suicidal.

This is another thing about us human beings. We experience sadness or darkness, and deal with our circumstances in our own ways, but the thing is, there’s more than just what we think or believe. I suppose when you are asked what you are living for, the question of why are you here may arise. It’s because these 2 things are tied together.

You were given life because you are supposed to be here. It may not make sense. Ever. But it is truth. Your life matters. Wherever you are, and whatever you believe or consider to be that makes up your very identity.

There’s so much more to think about than what we have here. Look at the headlines of the news, via paper or online. Anybody at least 20 years old can tell things have really taken a dramatic turn around in the last…years. Point is, we mustn’t take anything for granted, nor get too comfy here in this crazy world that is growing crazier day by day.

Do you know Jesus?

There’s more than this. The Fountain of Living Water is outpouring, free of charge to all who ask.

You Are Beautiful.

You Are Beautiful.

Today’s world is hovering all over us, telling us that we aren’t good enough, not smart enough, not pretty enough…all sorts of negativity. We must help one another, in a reminder that ‘being different’ is really ‘being special’. I think there’s around 7 or 8 billion people on earth-that’s far too many for there to be just ‘1 correct body type’ for all women or men to conform to. Don’t let the lies of society corrupt your precious minds. You were created with purpose, and your own, original beauty, that only you posses-no one else can be that. Rock what ya got, cuz you are beautiful!
