Blind by Feelings can Lead to a Deadly Outcome

Standard

Yes, I am writing on this again. My daughter called me and told me someone who worked in her building was murdered by her boyfriend. The female went to the home they both had previously shared to retrieve her belongings and as soon as the guy answered the door, he shot her point blank in the face. This is so awful, sad, and could have been avoided.

I’ve always said and will continue to say is if you wait until things get bad in a relationship you may never get to leave. You may die in the relationship. Everyone has signs concerning our relationships, whether we adhere to them is another thing.

When initially starting a relationship people must first know who they are (self). You must first love yourself, know and understand the difference between your wants, desires, and needs. Most people don’t have a clue there are differences. When people don’t first love self, they are looking for something in somoene else that they don’t possess in self. They are led by emotions and feelings. They think because it looks good or feels good it is good for them. Wrong!! They are led solely by their flesh! They get into relationships with the wrong people for the wrong reasons.

People get into bad relationships thinking they can save or change the individaul. They think their sex is so great or whatever they’re offering is so great it will change the other person. No, it doesn’t work! You may give a person a reason to want to change, you may encourage them to change, but change ONLY occurs because the person needing to change decided it was time. If they change before they are ready they will ALWAYS revert back to who they really are, because the change was for you and not for them.

You can love a person with everything in you, it’s NOT enough if they’re an individual with a lot of issues. They need to work on self, therefore until they do they will ALWAYS have chaos following them where they go. You can’t fix, save, or change them. Those who get involved with these types of individuals oftentimes have their own issues as well. Let me put it this way. Those who stay definitely have their own issues. People who know who they are as individuals (self) will adhere to the signs and run for the hills!

I don’t care what you feel about a person, make sure you can see through the fog. People will ALWAYS in some form or fashion show you who they are and show you their tendencies early on. If you’re blind by your feelings and overwhelmed then you will most likely NOT see the signs staring you in the face! This is why people get into relationships for all the wrong reasons, with the wrong people, and in the wrong ways. They are being led by their thoughts and feelings about the person while missing all the signs the person is giving as to who they are.

People are cussed out, disrespected, physically assaulted, obssessed over, controlled early on, they are kept from other people, etc. etc. This isn’t love. Some individuals think it’s cute how a person goes crazy over them to the point of wanting to fight someone. They think it’s cute a person tells them what to wear, who they can and can’t be around, tell them what to do or demand them to do this or that. They think it’s cute how the person wants to spend all their time with them and not allow them around anyone else. They think the person playfully cursing them or smacking them is okay when they present it in a playful way. I can go on for days. These are signs of what’s to come. It is NOT LOVE! It’s a clear indication of what you can expect in the future.

The problem is many people stay; they try to work it out. Then they get to a point where they’ve stayed too long. The person is possessive, obsessive, controlling, and ALL THE ABOVE, now it’s a problem with leaving. People are afraid to leave because they know how the person will react. Some stay because they want security or they like what the person does for them, completely looking over the fact how they are treated. Many, many people have died in their unhealthy relationships when they shouldn’t have. They should have left long before the point of no return.

Stop being quick to tell a person where you live and other information you should keep to yourself until you really know who you’re dealing with. Stop being quick to have sex with people thinking it will make them want you; sex hasn’t EVER kept a relationship together. People will act according to what you tell them you want so they can give you exactly what you say you want TO GET YOU! The very thing you tell them you went through many will put you through, they will manipulate you into a relationship, because you allowed it before.

Both parties are to blame. They will be who they are, but you should always leave when you see potential for trouble. People show you who they are, but many think it’s a fluke, (a one time thing). NO it’s the real deal and many will see it! People show potential problems that individuals ignore! There are consequences of failing to adhere to the signs. People end up in miserably unhealthy and unhappy relationships or they end up dead!

Not every person with issues will allow nonsense in their lives. Some people despite their many issues still has sense enough to walk away. Thank God! However, there are a lot of people who won’t walk away. They stay and endure unnecessary drama from individauls they think they love.

People must wake up!!! Deal with your many issues before getting into relationships. Face your problems and work them out, because your problems and your significant other problems together can be a ticking time bomb! People with a lot of unresolved issues ends up with other people with unresolved issues. People are eager and some desperate for love, when they don’t really love self. People will treat you EXACTLY how you allow.

We’re all his Children, yet not all Children of God

Standard

God wishes for none of us to perish. We are all His children, but we aren’t all children of God, because we all don’t believe. He doesn’t wish for one single soul to be lost. There are so many things that happens to us which we consider as unfortunate. However, many times God allow things to happen to get our attention. Many times we go through things and don’t learn anything. God allows us to do it our way. He isn’t a God who throws Himself on us, but He does sometimes do things to try and get our attention.

There are many people who refuse to listen to Jesus speaking to them, because they want to do things their way. They don’t want to give up the wrong for the right. They want to use the bits and pieces of the Bible when feasible for them. He speaks to us, but many won’t listen, because they are too busy doing what they do. Sometimes God throws something at us to knock us down and into reality. Some people stop and listen for a moment, but soon as their crisis is over they go right back to doing what they used to do. He doesn’t force Himself into our lives. He’s standing and waiting for all of His children, but many won’t answer the call.

I have a friend who just got out of ICU, he fell and cracked his skull causing bleeding on the brain. He told me God spoke to Him and now he’s running for Jesus. It made me cry, because I know the type of person he once was. He acknowledged Jesus and God the Father, but He wasn’t running the race. He had a clear revelation and now he is a messenger. He said falling busting his skull was the best thing ever happened to him. He had an unfortunate thing to happen to get his attention, the fortunate part it all is it worked. He is now on Jesus’s side spreading the good news!! I’m ecstatic!

I’ve known plenty of people who had accidents, but they weren’t granted the opportunity to live and tell it. It’s sad, but it happens. That’s why it’s important to stop playing with God, stop mocking God, stop mimicking the Holy Spirit, and so forth, because we don’t know when He’s to return. People don’t know if they will have a chance to repent or not. Me, personally I wouldn’t EVER risk the chance of losing my soul. Nothing or no one is more important to me than Jesus my Lord and Savior and our Father God.

Salvation is free bought with a price which was the crucifixion of Jesus for our sins. We don’t have to live in sin, people choose too! Living right is as easy as living wrong. It’s all about choices! I have gone through a lot, but I’ve learned from it all. When Jesus removed the scales from my eyes I never missed what I gave up, not one single bit. I don’t play church nor do I play with God. I live for Him daily!!

No one knows what the next second will bring or if there will be time for repentance. He’s standing at the door of all hearts knocking ready to come in. Many are constantly risking their souls because they want to live how they want to live and not according to the Word of God the Father and His Son Jesus. Some people’s attention He will get others He won’t. It depends on what the individual chooses.

Many want to blame Him when things go wrong, but never acknowledged Him in the first place. People easily accepts good, but don’t want to accept evil. You can’t have one without the other. No matter what Jesus is there. If you give up on Him, you never REALLY had Him. If you don’t have Him, it’s because you don’t believe. If you don’t believe, it’s your personal choice! There’s only ONE way to the Father and it’s not through the universe, it’s through His Son Jesus! He loves you all and wishes for none of you to perish, but the choice to choose is yours!

Gone in an Instant

Standard

None of us knows how, when, or where! I lost an uncle and my grandson’s young father over the Thanksgiving holiday 2016. There are many of my posts about getting our lives together before it’s too late. DEATH is real and it’s coming for each of us. My uncle was quickly taken by cancer, my grandson’s dad quickly and tragically taken by being struck by 2 vehicles.

Life is far too short to not want to be the best we can be. Too many choose to live their lives as if they’re never going to die. NEWS FLASH, we will ALL someday die and unfortunately many lives will be gone in an instant without a chance to repent. If we die in our mess that’s it!! Eternal damnation will be the choice made. No one knows the day or the hour, this is why it’s so important to get your lives together while you’re able to repent and change your ways. Don’t be a person who God has turned over to a reprobated mind.

I’ve written many times and will continue to write; nothing in this world is worth losing your soul over. If we die in the midst of our sins we don’t get any do over’s. Right now is it! Right now is our opportunities to get it right and live a life that’s pleasing in the sight of Jesus. We can play too long until we’ve played out and it’s too late. Don’t let it be you!

Death is coming like a thief in the night and without warning. No matter the situation or circumstance no one knows exactly down to the sec when they will take their last breath and depart from this physical world to a spirit realm. As long as we have breath in our bodies and blood running warm in our veins it’s NOT too late to get it right.

People of today are out of control. Many are lost souls who has submitted to the works of the darkness. They are out to do harm to others for no legitimate reasons. Their minds are controlled by evil thoughts; with raw emotions and feelings behind those evil thoughts until they end up doing the unthinkable. People are doing all sorts of foolishness. It comes from what’s truly in the hearts of people. When they are full of darkness (envy, jealousy, anger, malice, strife for WHATEVER reason/s) they are overcome by this darkness and it shows in their actions. They do things, because those things are what they have been thinking about for a long while, those things are eventually put into actions. They are seeking to belong, to be loved, or something they lack. They are easily persuaded and manipulated into foolishness. This is the work of evil which is here to kill, steal, and destroy. Look around; no matter where you are, you will see and hear about the madness going on in this world. People are broken all over the world, they are lost. They are young and old. They are of all races!

People are committing all kinds of evil acts and many are killed in the midst of committing those acts. These people have chose eternal damnation when they didn’t have to. People must stop being so easily influenced, brainwashed, manipulated, and persuaded by others. We all have a brain to think on our own and for ourselves. Even if you had a twin one was born before the other, therefore we are all birthed into this world alone. It’s great to have people who love you and are there for you, but in case you don’t have this; we ALL must be able to stand alone and make the right decisions and choices for ourselves. People must stop being influenced by others to do the wrong things.

To kill or harm in the name of ANY form of religion or hate is ludicrous. To kill or harm in the name of what a person thinks is love is ludicrous. To kill or harm, because you can’t deal with who you are is ludicrous. To live a life full of balled up pain when you don’t have to is ludicrous, because it keeps you captive by your own mind and it causes nothing but havoc in your lives.

I still believe nothing but love conquers hate. Some people are full of hate for all kinds of reasons, but it does nothing but feed the darkness they hold inside. These people don’t have a chance for eternal life if they die in the midst of their sins and darkness. We don’t know where, how, or when it will be our time to leave this world. Right now is the chance for change, but it’s up to each individual what they choose. In one blink of an eye any one of us could be gone. Think about today, how you choose to continue to live; because your life can be gone in an instant. Today is all we have, tomorrow isn’t promised, and yesterday is gone forever!

 

 

 

 

 

Backdoor of Life Leads to Death

Standard

Have you ever thought of this? The older I get I find myself thinking about death. I’m not afraid to die, but there are ways I don’t want to die. The reason I’m not afraid to die, is because I believe we are created to live forever either in Heaven or Hell. I choose Heaven all day, everyday. It’s all about what we believe. No matter what comes out of a person’s mouth, what a person believe is demonstrated in how they live. Many people live something other than what they profess, but at the end of the day when that back door opens and we have to step out into eternity, how we chose to live determines the path we will take.

I’ve always stressed the fact that I am not trying to push my beliefs on anyone, however I will always speak and write about my belief/faith. As God’s children we are supposed to be messengers and it’s my duty to provide what Jesus has given me. God wishes for none of His children to perish. The world we live in isn’t our home, we’re only passing through. We’re not here forever, but only for a little while. Everyday we live it’s our chance to right any wrong, but unfortunately many don’t believe therefore they don’t change their ways. You also have those who say they believe but are only pretending.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t want to be caught with my work undone. I want to be caught up in the rapture! People who know me think I am quite peculiar, but isn’t that what the Bible says about His people (we are peculiar people). When I put away my old ways I didn’t go back to them. I made up my mind and I never turned back. There are many people who meet me and without knowing me they don’t like me because I am different. I don’t act like them, do what they do, talk like them, or see things as they do. I live 24 hours a day, 365 days a year believing that God the Father and His Son Jesus are watching me. At one point in my life my eyes were on man only to realize every man’s knees shall one day bow. I had to find out for myself that every man has to stand for his or herself. I decided to put my eyes on who has the power and authority over Heaven and Hell. He’s the Author and the Finisher of our Fate. After doing this everything in my life changed. I am still me, but I am completely renewed. I could have been dead many times (literally), but for some reason I was spared. I can’t thank Him enough, I wouldn’t serve no other.

People think by living in the world they can’t separate themselves from the world. I believe people do exactly what they choose. I know you can separate yourself and in order to live for Heaven you must separate yourselves. The problem with most is they don’t want to give up their foolishness; not  understanding not giving it up will cause them to miss Heaven. There’s absolutely nothing in this world worth losing your soul. Many live as if they’re not going to die, but rest assure one day each  of us must step out our back door of life; there is nothing on earth that will stop it from happening. It will someday happen to every one of us.

My prayer is that people who believe get on the right side and stay there, stop flip flopping, and stop playing games. If you say you believe then live like you do! For those who don’t believe I recommend Jesus on today, I’m not saying you should, must, have to, (I’m only recommending), the choice is yours. One day the lights in our eyes will go out and our lids will close for the last time we will then step out through lives backdoor into the choice we made while we had blood running through our veins.

The world we live is becoming more and more unstable. People are fighting, killing, stealing, no love, no values or morals, families are divided, hatred running rampant, destruction on every hand. There’s things going on in all corners of the world. For me and my house I will serve the Lord. Many people worrying about fixing up their physical and natural homes, but they don’t think about getting right their spiritual homes. Everything else we have will pass away, but our spiritual bodies is what will live forever. Our spiritual houses is what we step into once we step out of life’s backdoor.

 

 

Here Today, Gone Today

Standard

I chose to write about this, because I traveled to the burial of my very good friend on yesterday. I still can’t believe my good friend of 16 years is gone. She had the biggest heart of anyone I’ve known. She passed on at the age of 41. I’m happy I got to spend her birthday with her in June. We had no idea on earth it would be her last one.

There were so many beautiful flowers at her home going. I told the people although the flowers were beautiful they were no good to her, because she couldn’t smell or appreciate them. I gave her flowers while she lived and was able to appreciate them. It’s one reason I didn’t have to get up and say this and that, because my friend heard what I had to say during the 16 years of our friendship. She heard the words while she could appreciate and value them.

When a person die people have so much to say, but when the person was alive those same people had nothing to do with the person. People love chiming in at funerals, but couldn’t be found when the people were alive. In my friend’s case it was no different.

My challenge to you is to give your family and friends their flowers while they live. Saying you love them when they’re dead means nothing. It’s a waste of breath. You should tell them while they live. Treat them right while they live and let them know what they mean to you. Stop wasting time being mad over things that don’t really matter.

Although some people act as if they are, no one is here to stay. Not one single person. Death can come at any given time whether you’re ready or not. That’s why it’s important to get both your physical and spiritual business straight. You won’t have time when death come knocking. You can’t ask death to come back later. When it’s time, it’s time.

Most people don’t like to talk about death (they’re afraid to die and don’t want to die), but not talking about it won’t stop it from coming. It will come for us all some day. Right now this very moment is really all we have. Nothing else is promised. The next second we can be gone. If you’re having issues with someone you love talk to them, don’t let things go, because tomorrow may be too late. A lot of people live with regrets, because they let bitterness keep them from their loved one or they treated their loved one wrong and then it was too late to rectify the situation. Don’t let that be you. Treat your loved ones right and give them their flowers while they live and can appreciate them. When I say flowers it’s a metaphor for showing good deeds, love, appreciation etc. Please whatever it is, get it straight right now, before it’s too late.

Husbands against wives, wives against husbands, mothers against daughters and vice versa, fathers against sons and vice versa, family against one another, friends fighting, etc. etc. Stop the madness! Don’t let another day go by, because once they’re gone nothing you say or do will matter.

I am so thankful for the sixteen years my friend and I shared. I’m glad I have the sense to show those I love what they mean to me while they live. I don’t allow anything to keep me from showing love and appreciation to others. I realize and understand that right now is all we have. I pray that you do too! When a person dies you can’t take back any wrong you’ve done or said. Right now is the time to get things right!
