A lot I do remember, some is still fuzzy, and I have lost the memories of many a tumultuous year. And I have forgotten many deep wounds and remember others still (although the pain has been replaced by scars dripping with forgiveness), lots I appreciate and many great little moments worked in. I remember many guys, which led me to the decision that either most guys are selfish or more likely that I have not exhibited great wisdom in the past choosing guys, which is far more likely (or maybe 50/50 with college guys of which I am referring). And somewhere along this 43 year trek of road along this journey, not even sure of exactly when, but I believe God has tamed me. Through suffering and moments of glory, God has melted this wild girl into some semblance of a tame but strong, Godly woman. That is certainly not to brag, I am not sure if I know of many more humble, but it is to say that God is a miracle worker because me being tame is a miracle and only God could do that. I have been a fighter rebel, proud and strong, defending the weak (and me too) most of my life, living free and wild by hook or crook, desperate for adventure and attention and a kind word from anyone, no matter what it took to get one. And God shaped that sad soul into the woman I am, His little girl grown up to be momma to many. And that is why God is my Champion, my Lord and Master, my Savior, my Father and my Friend. He made me, I blew it, and He remade me. What story is more beautiful? Any that go like that. God is everything, friends. Don’t neglect Him for He does not neglect us. He is for us.❤
And why should we not be selfish creatures is the argument, right? We are, after all, the crowning achievement of creation and represent God’s glory and genius. We who think and reason and choose freely. Should we not honor ourselves? Are we not co-creators, precious to God? Yes. Yes, we are. However, we are still, in all our immeasurable importance and glory, still the created. I can be waited on, praised, idolized, deemed valuable to society at large and never be more than the created. No one ever will be but God. I repeat, we have one Creator God and we are not nor will ever be Him. Worship Him. He is the important One. Be who you were made to be. That is glorious enough.❤
I believe the greatest lie that Satan started and has used for generations now successfully is the lie of evolution, and in so doing taking the Majesty, Glory, Beauty, Love and Power away from God as Creator for those who buy into that crap. The religion being forced down the students’ and public’s throat is the biggest pile of hooey in existence. It is ridiculous and impossible that we slowly made ourselves and became more complex. Leave things alone in nature and what happens? More complexity? No, of course not. Things degrade, break down. I am a doctor and many times in college was reprimanded, put down, penalized with a lower grade for not supporting that moronic agenda. It is so ridiculous. They think people are too stupid to think for themselves and too lazy to want to. And they try to make it seem plausible by adding billions of years to it! Ha!! Put the parts of a watch on the ground and wait billions of years. Will the completed, fully functioning and powered watch be ready to go when you get back in a couple billion years? Really? We need to think, people. God made us good minds that can think. God made the mountains. God made the sun. Think of that for a minute. He made it. He made the power source for our galaxy. God made birds that sing and fly, reptiles, insects for pollenation, chinchillas because they are cute, mammals, marsupials for something different, sea creatures, trees, flowers, everything. God did all that, in full color and sound and reproducing perfect offspring to perpetuate itself. And God made us. That is no mistake. We are not by any stretch of the imagination powerful enough to make any of it, especially our own selves. It is plain foolish to believe that noise. And dangerous, because God IS powerful enough to make all this. So He is powerful enough to withdraw from supporting it if we are so bad and against Him as to piss Him off. Of course He is loving and gives grace for now. But we need to get our acts together and start doing what He wants. God can restore. He can heal. He wants to. Draw close to Him and keep doing so. Pray, read your Bible, return to our country’s spiritual roots, to creation’s spiritual roots. ❤
When I pray, God reveals truths to me. He teaches me things. I have to be quiet and listen and humbly pray and God teaches me things. For instance, this morning as I walked and talked with Him, He revealed to me that when people idolize and lift up someone for some great thing they have done or achieved, they very often neglect t doling out praise and worship and adoration to God who gave them them hat gift or ability to begin with. In essence, it is glorifying the receiver of the gift rather than the Giver of the gift (and the Maker of that person). It is all wrong. God should get your praise first. God should be worshipped and lifted up for it all!!!❤❤❤
Never having been “normal” and knowing a few boring people but absolutely no “normal” ones, I am convinced this term is both ignorant and against God’s original design when He made us. See, we were made on purpose, beautifully and excellently, full of our own specific abilities and gifts and upbringings. This refutes the ignorant “normal” claim and makes those who embrace their uniqueness feel “abnormal” and be bullied and pressed down. This is very dangerous for people may be tempted to not fulfill their original and beautiful and rather powerful design. Whoever countermands God’s design will have seriously bad and extensive consequences. So be careful that no one deceives you into a false reality of who you were designed to be and go all out in obedience to God as to your original and unique design. Be you and do ago with God. ❤
Let me tell you something. We are all united. We can act like we aren’t, we can get distracted, we can get mired down in details that truly don’t matter, we can be fooled by those who have a vested interest in our division. None of that changes the fact that we are united. I have readers in about 20 different countries and my heart feels good knowing how united and connected we rightfully and truly are. Here is how. We are all made on purpose by God Almighty. We are connected by our beginnings and the fingerprints we all share of God. So, my brothers and sisters, let us not forget our roots, our unity, our connectedness. And you are in my heart. Let us keep the spirit of unity no matter who tries to divide. Let’s not even hear the weasels and just love on each other. We got this. God is still our Father. Love you, precious!
Whatever we put up on a pedestal has the innate and inevitable ability to fall from that height. And the higher we put it/him/her/them, the greater the crash. This is because all idols are man or manmade. Everything we choose to put excessive or obsessive effort and worship and time and service and devotion into that is not God is an idol. God is the Maker of man. So it only makes sense He should be the only One we focus on, even during our regular duties and work. God is it. Everything else will fail you, no matter what it promises. The idols fall. And all of them will eventually bow before God just like you will. If you do it now, that will be a happy day. 🙂
