The Hardness of Life

You get to a spot where you are feeling good physically ascend spiritually and then someone you love attacks you and your son emotionally the next minute then blames you. What do you do? Here is the problem with this temporary world. It is full of evil, even in your personal life around you. Evil is everywhere preying on you. Even after great celebrations with friends, even during or on car rides to and from. It seems hopeless and horrible. And so it is an endless cycle on this rock and we move to humbly waving the white flag and praying for help and wisdom. And God always provides, I just have to change my thinking and remember that our fights are very personal but that people are sometimes unassuming pawns of evil spirits trying always to seek and destroy and ruin everything. I have to write that down and put it on my mirror and fridge. God is bigger than this and has already won this battle. I need to find shelter AGAIN in His capable arms. God is good!❤❤❤

That Which Matters, Matters a Lot; That Which Doesn’t, Doesn’t at All

We live in a world of distraction, even chaos, if we let it escalate. We live in a world where people allow the wrong things go unopposed and the good, important things to be undefended. So we must be more intentional in our lives because that which matter is everything- God and things of God and set up by God. And things which do not matter do not matter in the least on a permanent, eternal basis. We must fix our eyes on Jesus, on the eternal, for our faith is much more valuable than our comfort. The things not eternal we must discern whether to simply ignore or to stand up for the Lord, and only the Holy Spirit can tell you which is which, but we will not hear Him if we allow distractions to in cringe on our spiritual health like little bacteria building up to try hard to make us sick. We must take our vitamins and vaccines, even medicine, specifically through constant prayer, throwing off of distractions, Bible reading and study/truth injections. We must do this because what really matters matters more than you can imagine and yhat which doesn’t (the temporary, evil, distractions, entertainment, antisocial media, etc.), not only doesn’t matter to our eternal life but can keep is from it. Ouch. Please pay attention with me. Let’s walk this together. God helps the second we humbly ask Him and we can encourage each other with truth. I love you! ❤

The Goal of Smallness

By smallness, I do not mean the size of physical form. Just to get that right from the start. The one good thing about evil being so dominant in the fake news entertainment (as there are few and far between true journalists anymore but I digress) or anti-social media or entertainment media is that whatever they are saying, the opposite is true. If they say he did, you can bet he didn’t. If they say families are healthy without a mom and dad, you can bet they are unhealthy. If they say follow your heart, follow your head because your heart is the most easily tricked. If they say true, it is a lie. It is so laughably predictable with all the evil/lie prevalence around us. So if the world says your goal should be to get rich and powerful and popular and well known, you can bet my goal is to get smaller, meaning humble. If man is god, mine isn’t, I’ll stick to God being God. So look with these truth eyes and invert every line you are given and you will be closer to the truth than you imagined. ☺

Silence is Telling

Nothing says “I want nothing to do with you” like a big heaping plate of silence. When you are pursuing and they are not reciprocating your pursuit, that is telling. They do not want the same thing. When you reach out to someone and keep reaching out and they are silent and moving further away, that is telling. They don’t want you. Silence is telling. It says more sometimes than words do. When someone is silent to you and you have been reaching out, they are lost to you, they don’t want you. This is a humbling notion but one when mastered will hurt in the short run but prevent further hurt in the long run. And God can give you both discernment and comfort, whichever is needed at the moment. The key is sticking humbly close to Him in prayer and reading. He is way smarter than we are (and loves us very much). ❤
