3 Days

Have you ever thought about how amazing and efficient our minds are !!! We still do not understand most of the workings of our brain’s !!! God definitely put his wisdom and knowledge on display when he gave us our brain !!!

Take for instance how our brain deals with time and memory !!!

It seems to me that our brain deals with past, present and future as 3 days ,,, yesterday, today and tomorrow !!!

For instance ,,, I can remember when I was about 2 years old throwing my first rock,,, through my mother’s favorite window !!! I can remember my 16th birthday and 25th birthday,,, getting rolled on by a horse on my 40th birthday,,, first day in the army,,, first day of college and my 60th and 70th birthday !!! These were all years and decades ago,,, but they seem like yesterday !!!

Now I am living in today,,, but only in the current moment,, after this moment is gone I can do nothing to change it and the next moment is in the future,,, which I can not do much about either !!!

So what should we gain from these 3 short days ??? The moment past is yesterday and moment future is tomorrow,, so I would say,,, we need to live to the fullest in this moment present, so tomorrow we have a wonderful memory from yesterday !!!

God Bless and Have a Beautiful Day for Tomorrow !!!

Momentary Gain ,, Eternal Pain

We used to have a saying when I was playing sports or working out in the Gym ,,, “No Pain,,, No Gain” – The theory being that unless you pushed your training to the point of complete muscle and body fatigue (muscle pain/failure) ,, you would not reach a higher level !!! It works for the most part depending on your dedication !!!

But what I am referring to with the Momentary Gain ,,, Eternal Pain reference is SIN !!!

All sin will bring you a moment of worldly Joy or Happiness or Wealth or Fame ,,, but in the end, after the glorious moment is past and it will for sure pass ,,, pain and suffering and destruction will follow ,,, no ifs,,, no ands,,, and no buts !!!

If there wasn’t that moment of worldly glory,,,, why would we sin ??? But it is a trap, a deception, a cruel joke instigated by Satan himself to try and destroy us !!!

If we don’t deal with this sin, it will only get worse and worse until it tears us apart !!!

If you have ever or are currently caught in one of these devilish deceptions ,,, as we all have been,,, there is only one way out !!! That is through the blood of Jesus Christ !! Only he can forgive us of our sins and defeat the Devil to restore peace to our lives !!

Only Jesus can break the vicious cycle of sin in our lives and forgive us our sins so we will not have to suffer eternal pain and suffering in Hell,,,, yes Hell !!!!

Invite Jesus into your heart and life and ask his forgiveness today so you can receive your forever gate pass into Heaven !!!

Do it now,,, as none of us knows what tomorrow will bring or even if we will still be here !!!

God Bless Every One of You !!!!

Air and Water

There are some things in our life and existence that we know, naturally, to be true !!!

For instance,,, Air,,, we know at a very early age that air is really important to our well-being- We may not understand it or know exactly what is in it that we need,,, but we know we need it-  Just hold your breath for a while and see how it becomes more and more important to have that next breath as just a short amount of time goes by !!!

Water is another essential part of our continued existence- Lack of water doesn’t work as fast as air to get our attention,,, but over time it becomes incredibly important- Water, or the lack of it, tends to work in a bit different way then lack of air in people !!

My case in point: After my leg amputation, I was staying at my daughter and her husband’s house for a bit getting healed and preparing for my prosthetic leg- I love latte’s, so I tend to drink more than I should, even at the expense of water-

Anyhow, one evening about nine o’clock, I was thinking about calling home to my wife and daughter – That is the last recollection I have of the rest of that evening until I woke up at 04:30, the next morning, on a gurney in the emergency room-

The story my daughter tells me is that they got a call from my wife stating that they needed to check on me downstairs as I was being really strange on the phone and couldn’t remember a lot of general information, like the dog’s name, grandma’s name and other things !! They checked and sure enough, there was a problem-

I was conscious but incoherent and babbling a bit- They immediately thought I had had a Stroke and loaded me in the car to go to town, about 40 miles away- My son-in-law said that I went into about a 2-minute circular cycle talking all the way to town- I would talk for about 2 minutes and then start over again from the same point, over and over- He even started timing me to see the loop timeframe !!! Interesting !!!

Well they started tests but the miracle thing they did, right off the bat,,, plug me into saline (liquid) – My daughter said that within about 5 minutes I began to make sense and recognize them – That was basically the point where I started to remember (I am, still, completely blank as to what happened for those 7 1/2 hours)-

Long and short,,, I was completely dehydrated, and my body was beginning to shut down, even with all the lattes!!!

All is good now,,, but it was a real eye-opener for me, my daughter, and her husband-

 I would highly recommend that you drink plenty of water first,,, and all the other good stuff later !!! I have heard that when you are thirsty, your body is already starting to dehydrate !!! Lesson Learned ,,,, DRINK, DRINK, DRINK plenty of WATER !!!

God Bless One and all and have a tall cool glass of water !!!!

Thought Provoking Wisdom

I ran across a good quote the other day that is worth sharing !!!

I saw it on a newsletter from the Denison Forum(Great site for Biblical Incites)

“If you are the only person in a dark room with a flashlight,,,, who is responsible for the light ” ???

As followers and believers in the Lord Jesus Christ,,, we have been filled with his light !!! We have the flashlight in this dark world !!!

I have owned and used a lot of flashlights in my 70 plus years ,,, but you know what ??? Not a one of them was ever any good to me until I turned it on !!!

if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ,,, you are filled with his light !!! Turn on your eternal flashlight by living and spreading the Good News of him !!!

If you are not a follower yet,,, I suggest you seek Jesus, learn of him, ask him into your heart and life and you will be issued your very own eternal flashlight !!!

Roman 10:9 states ,,, ” If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,,, you will be saved “

It is a dark world out there and time is short !!! This world needs all of his light we can offer in these dark times !!!

God Bless You Everyone,,,, Ohhh and don’t worry about batteries for your eternal flashlight ,,,, a complete recharge is just a prayer away !!!!
