Procrastination Can Have Eternal Consequences

We humans often put off doing some hard work until we feel more like it or want to or are ready to. But as we know, tomorrow never comes. It is always today.

When people procrastinate with important things like salvation, forgiveness, working for the Lord, serving others, helping people, using the gifts God gave us, it can have eternal consequences.

We do not know the day or the hour of the rapture. No one does. We don’t even know the day or hour we will die. Accidents can and do happen every day. Our next breath is never guaranteed us. We ought to live today in such a way that eternity can come upon us at any moments and that would be great.

So stop procrastinating. If you need to forgive someone, forgive them. If you need to confess, confess. If you need to repent, repent. Think eternally and be ready at any time to live eternally with the Lord. He loves you and wants you to.❤

Beautiful Recovery

We are all in one of three conditions:

1. In need of recovery,

2. In recovery, or

3. Through recovery.

This recovery may be something such as lying, porn involvement/adultery, alcoholism, anorexia, bulemia, drug addiction, gossip, murder, judgmentalism, hypocricy, gluttony, gambling, selfishness, fear, worry, timidity, couch potatoism, tech addiction, idolatry, laziness, workaholism, abusiveness, omission, whatever you fill in.

We all, because we are living on a sinful Earth right now, have this sin problem to recover from. Those who have been through the horrors of recovery are amazing and obedient and God is pleased. I am amazed by the strength God provides these valiant and pure souls who humbly admit they screwed up and take action to correct it and repent.

Recovery is repentence.

You can call it whatever you want, but when you recover, and while going through that process, you are working on and succeeding in repenting from your whatever. And that is gorgeous.

How rich and luxurious is the heart and soul of the person who has repented/recovered! How wise is the person who was headed toward eternal separation from God and is now close to Him!

To those who have recovered/repented (and I am right in there too), praise God and I am so very proud of and pleased with you.

Those who are still lying that it is no big deal, it is not too late and feels really great to be on the other side. It is worth every discomfort and the pain will teach more than a thousand lies.

Praise God for recovery and never forget how much Jesus loves you to help you through it.❤

The Beauty of Jesus

People use “glorious” to describe Jesus. This is of course true, but through these eyeballs, I see it as “beautiful”. Glory is seen through the eyes of the spirit. It is easily discarded by those who deny the spirit’s importance. So I say “beautiful”, a term over-used but understood by our physical selves.

Beauty is looking a deep sinner in the eye and seeing a sick person that needs help.

Beauty is a tree rustling in the gentle wind while dropping flower petals.

Beauty is healing someone with disease.

Beauty is providing salvation to anyone and wanting everyone to be saved.

Beauty is leaving the glory and superiority of heaven and putting on flesh to experience our physical life to relate to us and then sacrifice Himself for us.

Beauty is seeing every person as beautiful and precious.

Beauty is loving children and especially orphans and widows and commanding their care.

Beauty is standing bravely alone in the face of the worst betrayal and misunderstanding in history.

Beauty is deciding we are more important somehow than the Creator of the universe’s comfort.

Jesus is the most beautiful man who walked the earth. I would have loved to sit with Hj I’m and look into His eyes. I bet the whole world could be seen in them. And you know, someday soon I will be blessed to do so for eternity. And anyone can who calls on the name of Jesus Christ to be saved. That, my friend, is beautiful.❤❤❤

Mother’s Day Finery

So, we took my Mom out to Golden Corral for lunch last Sunday. It was her idea, because it was less crowd (no line) and she likes very few people around (lol) but likes their variety of foods, and one day is as good as the next to celebrate. And she has never been practical with money (learned that from Daddy lol), but she is practical with things like this. And she is right. What is an arbitrary day to celebrate something that is a part of who I am? Yeah, I know, not a romantic notion, but I am proud of my kids, I know I carried them for 9 hard sickly months each and gave birth without meds (rah!), and they are amazing people so I must have done all right so far despite it all. They both love God, love me and are doing great in school and life. Both are artists like me and both musicians now (piano first with theory then whatever they want). One is great at baseball and basketball now and one loves dance. I feel grateful for the opportunity to be these kids’ mommy. I always wanted to be a mommy and I am so thankful God blessed me with my own children. So one day out of the year to say, “Hey, you’re a mom” is kinda weird really. I am really not all that. I do the best I can but I have screwed up a lot and try not to but probably will again some other way. I fight the same balancing blended families act so many also work on. I try to keep everyone healthy but just got over being sick as a dog for not wearing a mask while scraping popcorn off a ceiling and sanding. In trying to make my kids more n independent, I always wonder if I and ignoring them too much. I teach them laid back and calm by exemplifying that mostly at home but teach them anger by erupting when driving surrounded by “idiot drivers”. So many things I do wrong. My kids see the best and the worst of me. But there is some good there, I hope. And in the end, I pray a lot and trust God will fill in for my deficiencies. And if they want to do something nice for me, that is nice but I would rather they obey. Lol Either way, I’ll take it and keep loving them the best way I can, as my mom did for us and her mom did for them and my Daddy’s mom did for them and my amazing Aunt did for them. I really had incredible role models of motherhood. I just hope the good parts carry forward. 🙂 Happy Mommy’s Day!!!!!!!! 🙂

Daniel 3 

Daniel 3:5. “As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. 6. Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.” 7. Therefore, as soon as they heard the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp and all kinds of music, all the nations and peoples of every language fell down and worshiped the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up. 15. Now when you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, if you are ready to fall down and worship the image I made, very good. But if you do not worship it, you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace. Then what god will be able to rescue you from my hand?” 16. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to him, “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. 18. But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.” 19. Then Nebuchadnezzar was furious with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and his attitude toward them changed. He ordered the furnace heated seven times hotter than usual 20. and commanded some of the strongest soldiers in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace. 24. Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?” They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.” 25. He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.” 26. Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!” So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire, 27. and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them. 28. Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. 29. Therefore I decree that the people of any nation or language who say anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego be cut into pieces and their houses be turned into piles of rubble, for no other god can save in this way.” 30. Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the province of Babylon.”

1 John 4:17-21

1 John 4:17. “This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. 18. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 19. We love because he first loved us. 20. Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. 21. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.”
