I just watched “Moana” with my kids because it is on Netflix now. Talk about a great movie! I highly recommend it. I liked the story and character development and the hope. I did not need all the reincarnation spirit stuff or mysticism but I think writers think they need to do that or keep the kids’ attention nowadays, it’s lazy but akin to mythology. Nonetheless, taking the story to its heart, it yearns to push through to find your gift and meaning. And for that it is beautiful. I loved the friendships also. And we all loved the chicken. Life is, my friends, whatever we allow ourselves to pursue as God gifts us. He gives us the drive to do what he gives us to do, our purpose. And when we pursue that, things eventually fall into place. ❤
Looking on the bright side, heaven is coming up on the horizon. And as dark and deceitful as this world can possibly get, that makes the light of truth in heaven that much brighter! And while Muslims expect their 72 virgins in paradise for killing a Christian or Jew, the reality is that murder unrepented of gets you a direct ticket to hell but the Christian and Messianic Jew goes straight to that heaven/paradise they were expecting where we are as pure as virgins and that is the sad ironic truth (sad for them, pretty amazing for us). Heaven is coming soon and even better, we have a secure, eternal relationship as adopted children of God Almighty!! Woo hoo! I can not stand the thought of people being lost, but everyone has their own choice to make and I am so happy to be on the winning, loving, peaceful, joyful side with Jesus Christ our Messiah. Oh how I love Him!!! ❤❤❤
John 5:23. “that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him. 24. “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. 25. Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. 26. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. 27. And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man. 28. “Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice 29. and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned.”
When my throat hurts, I am very sleepy for no reason and feel got, I know I am fighting a bug and need to rest. When the air is windy, tree frogs croak and clouds come billowing in, I know rain is coming and I need to reschedule outdoor events. When Jerusalem is surrounded by enemies, evil is at an all time high and the earth is rumbling and quaking at greater frequency, I know Jesus is Coming soon and we need to get right with Him. Do not ignore the signs of it. Prevent disaster by doing what you need to do to get your house in order spiritually and in every way. Throw out distractions and things taking too much time, they are not worth losing heaven over. Nothing on this planet is worth separation from God. Cling to Jesus Christ, our hope and salvation. Love Him for He loves you more than anyone else can ot will.
Sin is the fire. We find we have lit a fire yet again, a habitual and automatic fire. Again it burns our hands or caused discomfort. We hover around it, getting as close as we can without burning. We pray for deliverance from the fire as we tend it and hover close to it. God tires of our game but wants to protect us so He blows the fire out and we are free if it for a few momen t s and can breathe unpoluted, nontoxic air for a while then we light it again, tired of cleanliness and bored of clean living. We want our soot and ashes. It is comfortable, familiar, comforting. Ish. But we ignore the scorching, the pain, the burns it brings. So I have learned that if God blows out the fire, to leave it along and find something else to do. God will provide such things if we ask Him. We can do something else and God will help. Put down the hat hehe matches and we can serve together. Other people need the fire extinguisher too. Help someone else. There is always an alternative to the constant fire which harms and can kill. There is God, our hope.
Ugly is everywhere, irrational evil and primitive primal evil practices and demoralizing of people and demeaning of people is prevailing many of our countries around the world and even shockingly in some states in our country. Many cults are filled and run by evil puppets on evil strings, all ignorant but greedy and lustful and all working for God’s enemy to destroy as many as Satan can in the short time he has left to do anything. Satan is like an opossum backed into a corner by a guard dog, knowing it is going to die but going to inflict as much damage as possible on his way out. And this is our world right now. Jesus is Coming back soon, and the sooner the final day is, the more damage evil will do if allowed. Do not try to reason with evil. Evil cannot be reasoned with because it only wants you dead after hurting you as much as possible. Nothing else interests it. Do not reason. Defend yourself and stand on the hope we have. Pray. Fast. Pray and fast. Those of us who have hope in God have eternal life waiting for us b in paradise with God. Only those who are saved by accepting Jesus’ free gift of salvation are guaranteed a happily ever after and have this hope. One we have it, God, the Winner of all wars, fights for us and we gave nothing to fear. God is everything! I have hope in God. Do you? It is as easy as a prayer with a humble heart and then start reading your Bible from God and pray. Then welcome to His peace and joy and love and all good things. Such beautiful hope!!!
So, turns out even the deepest of mourning and ugly sadness and loss and illness has an end. There is a corner you turn in the process of God’s healing, most probably be a use if we turn the corner too soon, we keep going back to it. It is a decision that cannot come too soon, there is a process. I tried to rush that as I try to rush much of life and recently God helped me make a conscience decision to relax, be quiet, simplify and wait it out. I did so and with the help of God, my husband and kids and a handful of amazing friends, I have indeed turned that corner. I went swimming with the kids yesterday, exercised last night, listened to good music, read, watched a little home improvement shows, and planned some of our own with my husband, whose patience and new encouragement I so appreciate. So there you go. I am living proof of the healing process. I have turned a corner and God’s hope is there. I have walked quite literally through the shadow of death and while I never feared because my faith is strong, I wondered if I would live there forever. And my Good Good Father brought me through the valley. And now I understand His quiet methods and timing much better for having gone through it and fully realize His strength and wisdom and not my own that saw me through and led me back to whole. He reseal ed my heart with His healing so it remembers but is renewed stronger. Praise God who is so good! Praise God wisdom go loves us! Praise God wisdom gogo is wise and loving and present!! How I love Him!!!
