Running Dark

Good Morning !!

Have you ever been in a place or room where there was no light,,, I mean pitch black,,, where you can’t even see your hand, right in front of your face- It can be a pretty scary experience !! Well, here is my experience from the past with Pitch Black places !!

When I was in the Army basic training, decades ago, we had to have night training- I remember this one night the Drill Sargent herded us all into a big auditorium-Probably a couple of hundred trainees-One of the Sargent’s got up in front of us and said the lights were going out and just to set and remain quite !!!

Well a few seconds later all the lights went out, and it was completely dark, I mean pitch black, you couldn’t see a thing,,, for a bit- As we were sitting there in the dark he said to stay calm and start moving your eyes around,,, left,,, right,,, up ,,, down and low and behold you could start to see things in the dark-Little figurines they had placed high on the walls backlit with red dim light behind them !!! The more we looked around the more came to light,,, so to speak-Our eyes were adjusting to the dark,,, pretty amazing experience, I have to say the reason for the red lighting is that they told us that red light will not destroy our, “midnight purple”(eyes adjusting to taking in more light to see) they called it – That is why you see all the night lights in military units is backed in red lighting !!

Anyhow, the point of this story is that ,,,, to me,,, that is exactly what is happening to our soul/spirit inside us- We are all created with a soul/spirit that is separate from the mental or physical part of us !! We keep it locked away in a dark room inside, but we always have a feeling that we have to let it be free to truly be complete !! The question for all of us, even though we may not be aware of is, what is calling us to change !!

We can and do, try a lot of worldly things to release us from this urging,,, we try to Yoga it out,, Meditate it out,, work it out,, exercise it out, buy it out or Wish it out,, or Drug it out,, but nothing seems to work in the long term after the initial rush of deceptive change (Happiness, Joy, Mind Rush or Adrenaline charge, which is always short-lived) ,,,, we always return to the same place,,, Something is just not right inside !!!

Long and short of this deal,,,, You have to obtain the one and only key that will unlock the door inside to free your spirit/soul –

That key is Jesus Christ !!!

As soon as you find, believe, and accept him into your life the door to that dark room is opened,(His light shines in and that darkness is destroyed by his light) your spirit will soar into Heaven to join with God’s Holy Spirit – At that instance,,, you become completely free of the limits, limitations, and boundaries of this worldly existence !!! You will fly, like an Eagle, above this physical world and nothing here will ever be the same !!!

There may still be Evil and Darkness and Bad around you, but they will never, again, be able to imprison or destroy your spirit – You are protected by his light and darkness cannot penetrate this light ,,,, EVER !!!

You are now destined for eternity with God the Father and Jesus the Son !!! Nothing can ever change that,,,,,,, Nothing !!!

Enjoy your new freedom and amazing peace in your life !!!!

God Bless and have a GREAT Day !!!

ANGER

Anger, I believe, is the most destructive of all our emotions !!!

Looking back over my life,, I cannot think of a single time, when I got angry and acted on that anger, that I did not have real regret after I came to my senses !!

Came to my senses,,, that is exactly what uncontrolled anger causes,,, a loss of your basic common senses !!

You lose control of you tongue, your common sense, your physical restraint and your general well being !!! You blurt out vicious words that you usually don’t mean or end up regretting, you react before thinking about the consequences and you take your mind out of the game and let rage rule – Bad Bad combination !!!

So how do you fight it when you feel anger building inside,,, before it gets to the blow-up rage stage ???

Well there is an age old saying that apply’s and works as well today as when my Grandma told me long ago !!!

STOP,,, COUNT TO TEN and BITE YOUR TONGUE !!!

Do this and get your Brain back in the game and muzzle your tongue

You will be amazed at how well it works

God Bless and Wish for Peace in the World !!!

Bigger Then Us

Good Morning !!

In my experience,, we all seek for something to hold on to or associate with that seems Bigger Than Us,,, alone !!!

It might be a work organization or position, a club, a gang, a family or any organized group,,, but we all seem to seek something to bring satisfaction, accomplishment or joy into our ,,, less than perfect lives !!!

The problem is that most always, these groups come up lacking as we get into them- They are never what they seem to be or what we thought they were from the outside,,, once we get inside !!! Why is that ??

Well, they all have one common hidden flaw ,,, they are all organized and managed by ,,, humans !!!

Humans with all our hidden traits,,,, love, hate, forgiveness, lack of forgiveness, war and peace, arrogance, pride, selfishness, anger, hypocrisy and discontent all wrapped up to appear, from the outside, like the other people we think we want to associate with !!!

Problem is,, we are all unique and there is not one person on this earth that is exactly like you,, inside or out !!!

So we join organizations, thinking they are just what we need to be “Bigger Than Us” and hopefully fulfill what we feel we are lacking in our lives !!! What do we find ??? We find, as we get inside, that they are not exactly what they are cracked up to be on the outside !! Human organized and Human operated !!!

Long and Short ,,,, there is only one “association ” that we can join freely, that is truly “Bigger Than Us” that knows each one of us intimately, down to the smallest cell, deepest feeling and hidden hope- An association that is not human run or managed,,, that association is run and operated by Jesus Christ !!!

So if you want to truly be part of something that is “Bigger Than Yourself” to fulfill and redirect your mind and spirit to true happiness and joy and contentment and peace,,, Join Jesus Christ !!!

God Bless Everyone and Pray for Peace in this world !!!

Question Answered

I firmly believe that God, through Jesus Christ, is in charge of this world !! He knows every heart, because he created every heart!!

He has a plan, his will, that is moving forward each day !! No one or no thing or no being, can open a door he has closed or close a door he has opened without his blessing !!!

So a question has bugged me for a while

If he is in charge of all, and knows the beginning from the end and end from the beginning, and every instant is under his control and set in stone,,,, so to speak ,,,, how can I, a mire human, change anything that he has destined ???

I asked myself why,, why should I ask for something that seems completely out of his plan or against his will ???

An example- If you follow and study Biblical prophecy, you will learn that the United States is not mentioned as a major player in end times prophecy !! So that means that the US has to fall from prominence during the final days, which I believe is beginning as we speak !!

Okay, so I would ask, why would I pray for the US when it seems to be against his prophecies and thus his will ???

Well I received the answer to my question this morning , as I was reading, from a quote by Oswald Chambers who passed on a hundred years ago !!

God alters the inevitable when we get in touch with him

So there it is ,,,, plain as day,,, we just need to be in touch with God

Okay,,, How do we do that ???

Through belief in prayer, that he is in charge and can alter the inevitable !!!

So pray for the impossible and believe in your heart that God can make it happen and he will answer your prayers !!!

From my experience, God always answers my sincere heart pleading prayers,,,, (Qualifier) if I have unwavering faith – It may not be the answer I wanted but he always answers and the answer is always the best answer to my prayer ,,, usually beyond my comprehension when asking !!!

So love Jesus and talk with him as the true friend he will become and he will bring overwhelming joy and unimaginable peace to your heart and life,,, even though chaos is all around you !!!

God Bless and have a GREAT DAY !!!!
