The push of humanism disguised as psychological and spiritual truths is that self-awareness and introspection and self-thought in of itself is noble and a high goal. As if we created ourselves and that would be a moment of greatness. That is a dangerous lie really. The power of introspection is only when a filter of the Bible is applied. Searching your heart and knowing yourself better is only noble and powerfully strong and good is when we are evaluating whether we are focusing on and serving God and others for God and to please Him. Checking ourselves that we are obeying the Bible and humbly praying every step of the way is true power because of God and not us. God rewards obedience. Focusing on God and humble prayer is obedience.❤
I sit in my silence
Alone in my room to sleep
And silence speaks to me.
It beckons me remember
That which I should forget
It speaks lies of another’s silence
Which speaks differently.
I detest the silence.
The silence speaks peace
In an alternate story.
The silence beckons my repose,
Assuring that all is well.
I love the silence.
The voice of silence, then,
Appears my choice.
My perspective loves or hates.
Silence’s story is in my interpretation.❤
The closer I get to Jesus Christ, the more spiritually I am thinking of things. Today I saw a preacher speak on it and it clicked. What is released in the world right now is this strong demonic leviathan spirit at work because it is the end times. This spirit uses pride of men and women and even children to control their minds and cause division. It uses tactics of division and false convictions and misunderstanding through a lie filter to divide and conquer and control. The purpose: our annihilation and taking as many to hell as possible when he is forced there by Jesus’ eminent return. The counter measure is constant prayer and Bible reading. And when anger rises up in you and misunderstandings are looming, immediately take away the evil spirit’s power by humble prayer and Bible reading, pray for a discerning Holy Spirit and go about your business for the kingdom of God. We are given a reprieve via President Trump’s fighting for our rights and freedoms and punishing evil ones who have given in to the leviathan spirit to spread the Good News of Jesus and do what we can do to spread truth. This is our opportunity to enlighten masses and remind them of the simple truth that “United We Stand and Divided We Fall.” The beautiful news is that God is way stronger and He wins. We stay close to Him and we win.❤
We become what we listen to. This is why lyrics are important. What we feed our brain is what we end up like. Feed the brain good words, we are good. Truth in, truth out. Lies and corruption in, lies and corruption out. Bad words turns people bad. Good songs produce good people and bad songs produce bad people. There are exceptions but they are few. So my rule with myself and my kids is Christian songs only and Bible reading every day. Seems harsh? Think about it. If I feed my impressionable children’s brain sex and sleeping around and throwing people away and selfish things like “getting mine” and gotta have this or that, will that not impress the wrong ideals on their minds and encourage them to develop a strong lack of moral character? I think so. If I feed them truth, won’t they be more likely to embed that into a strong moral character and know the truth and discern lies when they see them? I think so too. So, have a wonderful day listening to some good songs with truth lyrics!❤
Always been easy for me to chase shiny objects. Not to own them but to study them and explore. That is why I went into science and medicine. I want to know how things work and love people- insatiable and most naturally curious. So distracting me is outrageously easy. And I realize more and more as I study myself objectively and study the people around me… distractions are the enemy’s greatest tool in his toolbox. It works remarkably well, I must say, and to great effect. If we lose focus on eternity and especially Jesus, we can be separated from Him so much more easily. We must always be soberly aware that our focus has to be on Jesus to stay close to Him- keep in His strength and the fruits of the Spirit and His rich, powerful love. He will not walk away from us but we sure can wander away running after shiny objects.❤
My daughter is raised to be truthful. Not that we always get it right, but she knows full well what is truth and what is lie. Her friend does not, she mixes truth and lies up together in a big bowl and dishes it up according to what she wants at the moment- attention, things, pleasures, etc. Sounds like half of society these days and me a while back, I confess it. So how is it I believe I am instructing my child in knowing truth versus lie? How can I tell? What is truth? Is it all relative, which is the latest fad of knowledge? Do we guess or reason and come up with our own truth? Who decides what truth is? How do we know what is truth internally? Why is there a truth? Aren’t absolutes square and rigid and boring and limiting and antique/archaic?
I know and we all know what truth is because we are all created with live by the Creator of truth/One which can not ever lie. Our Creator can not lie, there is no lie in Him. And He planted a moral code in our brain. We can choose to attend to it or not for we were also given free will. But the moral truth code is embedded on our brain harddrive. Think about it. Why do we gasp in horror when someone hits a pregnant woman or leaves their dog in the car on a hot summer day or kill someone or rise in anger at a bully? Why? Did someone tell everyone this is bad and wrong, lying is bad and wrong. When we lie, do we feel good or bad? Think about it. Someone had to have done so. God pre-wired us to know it. He wanted our happiness because of His love for us so gave us the moral code of truth to follow to be happy. And He was generous enough to write it down in the Bible for we who are too distracted and self-involved to hear our internal moral truth programming code gift from God. We need to get back to it for our happiness and connection to God. 😄❤
We had to let our lead singer go in our band for a myriad of reasons which everyone left agreed upon. And he did not accept our decision that was best for him/his deteriorating health as well as the band, so he decided to be divisive by calling other band members and causing problems and whining like a child. So, here we have a problem, a potentially big one. But his tactics were ineffectual. Why? How do you nip problems in the bud? Here is the easiest way… good communication. We talk. My husband says “Adults talk”. Children whine, adults talk. That is it. We talked. I talked and explained for the decision we had wrestled over for a freakishly long time and our line of reasoning beforehand. Then the band was prepared for his childish antics and knew we were on the right page. Some people’s pride will not release them of wanting to do what they feel good doing even if their health is compromised and a good friend steps in to intervene and save them from their self. And my conscience is clear and everyone is good and excited about our new members and energy and new songs again and we are moving forward together, more united for it and clear of conscience knowing we did the right thing for him and us. Good communication accomplishes that. And of course before any communication occurs, we pray first and God provides the right words at the right time for the right reasons. So really it is two fold… good communication with God and with everyone else. And then the details, good or bad, will work themselves out. ❤
