Teenagers drum up drama in their heads. Their hormones lead them one way and their imaginations expound on that in a narcissistic way to produce drama after drama for the real world from their perspective. My daughter said it best, “He’s either nice or mean or sad all the time now.” Anout sums it up.
Some people never outgrow that level of dealing with the world. They remain in teenager hormone imagination land creating drama forever. My ex is like that. If there is no drama, he will invent some to be happy or contentedly unhappy rather. It is exhausting. Now he is getting back together with his crazy wife I thought we had been blessed to be done with. And this is going on and this is and blah blah blah. Neverending drama. And my stepdaughter is teeming with that same narcissistic teenage hormone imagination drama too. Just goes on and on. My mom also has this . I think it is an epidemic, like the plague or something.
Momma’s tired of drama. You know who else wants us to get off the crazy drama train? God does. He wants us to live in perfect peace and keep our mind stayed on Him. He wants us to be joyful always and pray continuously. This is His will forum in Christ Jesus. So, simple is better and eternity-with-God minded is the ticket there. We need to let go of being included in the drama and as fast as they want to drag us there is just as quickly as we turn back to our view of the cross and rolled away stone. And I am looking forward to Easter and will work on celebrating that excellent day all year long. That was pretty dramatic.😄❤
“Christianity is not always easy….
But it is always simple.”
– God is Not Dead 2 movie
Greatest quote I’ve heard in a long time. Truth!❤
I screw up, you screw up, everyone screws up. It is called sin in the Bible… a mistake of disobedience, a work of pride, intentional or even inintentional. It is gonna happen, it may be happening now. But God has a plan through the redemptive blood of Jesus who died and arose for our sins. God loves us so much and knows we need constant forgiving, so gives us grace and pardon when we ask but we need to do the work of being humble and accepting His living, free gift and then making it right on our end. That is it. So simple. Then we are free of it and burdens are lifted away. It is simply beautiful! Praise God!😄❤
God’s truth is simple and clear. That is one if the great ways to know it is true. Simplicity. Peace. Joy. Love.
The lies of the enemy are convaluded and confusing, murky and mixed up, dark and secretive. Lies hate being exposed and will often quite literally fight to the death puffed up with pride rather than face consequences or humbly confess and repent. And die eternally for it too.
God’s truth is so clear. God loves you dearly and made you to love Him and others and be saved by Jesus Christ. That is it. Confusion gone. Darkness disappears. Light floods in. Truth is simple and easy to understand and grasp. However, it is not stupid and does not lack sophistication but presents that deep truth simply so everyone can understand and be saved, even children or disabled or very elderly with neural deficiencies. All are welcome to heaven but must decide that here on earth. Simple message, simple open truth.❤
There are times life is cloudy, unclear, hidden. Christianity should be clear, the clear light in the darkness. The message of God is very clear and here it is in its entirety: “Sin screwed things up and we need a Savior and Jesus Christ is that Savior and accepting Him and obediently living for and with God is what is expected of us and rewards us now and forever and we will be judged accordingly.” That is a very simple, clear message. It could not be more clear. That is the Good News God has given for us through the Bible. Clear, concise, simple, vital to our eternal lives, the hope and light and truth everyone is to hear, learn and follow. Every single person. Clear. Clear message. Cloudy Christianity is where people added something to the clear message. This is wrong. Biases, opinions, pride, selfishness, egos, desires, traditions, dogma, flawed perspectives, etc. all cloud the clear message, so as such are sins. If the message is not clear, God will hold accountable the person who added to His message. Read the Bible for the truth, and you can start in Mark. You are accountable to learn God’s message. Every person is. On judgment day, which is coming in the near future, God will ask you to account for your knowledge and acceptance of God’s simple message about Jesus and prayer life with Him. And you will be rewarded by being with Him if you follow Jesus and punished if not. So simple. Just make the right choice now before it is too late. ❤
In an ever increasingly complex and ever decreasingly user friendly world we live in, seemingly quite tense and hostile and quite literally playing out wars between good and evil, we need to breathe in some simplicity. We need a mental break. We need to go to a good church. We need to read God’s Bible. We need to pray. And we need to put on some I Love Lucy reruns and just laugh. We need park time, movie time, hiking time, ice cream rime, sitting on a porch swing time, baking and eating time, beach time, sunset watching, whatever give you enjoyment and simple joys. These are the positive tings we need to balance the weight of the world pushing in on us all the time. It is important. Schedule it in. Demand a break for yourself and those around you who feel your inner tension. Exploding onto them too. Be a humanitarian, for heaven’s sake (lol) and enjoy some simple joy therapy. Laugh. Relax. God is still very much in control and we need to be ready for Him. 🙂
