Ownership

world-in-his-hands

 

The world and universe belong to our Beautiful, Wonderful Creator, the living God. He owns every atom, every molecule, every square inch, every heartbeat and every breath on its surface. We own nothing. We are just temporarily using His stuff. We have only an artificial, man-made system of ownership which tries to keep us from stealing from each other. God even owns us. It doesn’t matter whether we like it or not.

John the Baptist said He(God) can raise up sons of Abraham from the stones. He is in control of everything. Fortunately for us, He loves us completely even to the point of taking the punishment that should have been ours upon Himself. Spend time in His scriptures to get to know Him better. He wants to meet you there and spend time with you. Praise God and may He bless your week!!

Light!!

lightgod

Light
Beams, thick shafts
This light
So clear, illuminating
The air
Around me

Enclosed, surrounded
In the middle
I stand
Inside this pure essence
Of light

I look to see, observe
feel
Raise a hand
I too am made
Of light

Mingling, becoming,
Blending
Transfixed, held by,
Composed of the
ephemeral Light

From overhead.
Until
I join, melt into
The material falling
From above

No longer separate,
Joined now,
Together with,
No longer the I
Of me

Only the us
Of we, together
I stand
Within the essence of
You

Every human on this planet has an inner need to be joined with our Creator. We are made of the same eternal spiritual material as our Father. We get ourselves into trouble when we go trying to meet that need in the wrong places: sex, alcohol, drugs, ego, temporary pleasure. Only a close, intimate relationship with Him can give the fulfillment, joy and contentment that only He can give. Praise God!!

In America we have become a nation of entitlement. People feel like they are entitled to everything the earth can produce, but the truth is we actually own nothing of this earth. We are just very temporarily using God’s property. God owns all of it for the ‘earth is the Lord’s and the fullness therein’. God owns every atom, molecule, square inch, every heartbeat, every breath on it because He made all of it and us. He owns us and can do with us whatever He desires. Fortunately for us, He is trying to love us into Paradise with Himself. John the Baptist said ‘He can raise up children of Abraham from the stones’. He is in control of everything.

Today women  in this country even think they’re entitled to kill their own unborn children while still in the womb, and so many of the ones we let live we don’t try to teach them about Christ, God and the Holy Spirit at all. No wonder they feel so lost. They have no moral compass by which to steer their lives. We don’t even try to hold our marriages together for the sake of our own little babies! Don’t think as a nation we will not have to answer for this before the Living God.

Our country is in trouble spiritually. We should all get down on our knees before the Living God, praise Him and beg for forgiveness. We are so blessed that He is the most loving, kindest and most forgiving Spirit in existence. Praise God!!

Victory!!!

fractalovercomeworld#2overcomeworld#3

When Christ died on that cross our Victory was assured. The same power that raised Him out of that cold, dark grave wants to come and live inside of you, His Holy Spirit. The more we step out of the way and let this Spirit live in us, the more of His Victory over this world you will experience.

Were you a victim of abuse? Were you taught by parents to be an alcoholic, drug addict? Were you taught to be irresponsible with money, mean-hearted, negative, hypercritical? You do not have to be caught up in any of that anymore. Christ can give you His overcoming power to leave all of that behind you and step into His Victory!! He has overcome all the problems of this world, and can give you the power to overcome them also!!

He did that for me and will for you. I have had to have help, but do not be afraid to ask for help. Become a part of his spiritual family somewhere (church) and let them help you as well. Praise God for his unfailing love, mercy, compassion, grace and forgiveness. May you have a blessed day!!

Tears

crystaltears

Tears

Crystal tears
Polished with pain
Glisten, shine
Amidst life’s
Long, twisting lanes

Chimes in wind
Tinkling with sound
They slip, slide
Fall to ground.

Call out my name
These harbingers,
Past pains warn
Of future hurts

No one escapes
Travails, sorrows
We glide forward
Unknown indeed are
All tomorrows

Only one promise
Stands so clear
Voiced from heaven
To mortals so mere

Look up, see
My arms await
Each who tries to follow
My beckoning Son through
These opened gates

My tears also fall
To soak a thirsty earth
For all my lost children
Who turn their backs
On their gift of
this glorious new birth!

 

A Repeat

 

 

Here is a repeat of a blog I wrote in October of 2018. I will never forget this experience and hope that it helps your faith in some way. Praise God!!

For years now, I guess about 7 or 8, I have been wanting to talk about, tell, something that happened to me one night. I have only told family members about it since I’m not very good at standing up and talking in front of people or telling things to people. I guess I was afraid they wouldn’t believe me.

I have sleep apnea. I don’t know if you know what that is, but that’s where when you lay down on your back to sleep the muscles that hold up your soft palette at the back of your throat relax so much that the palette itself collapses downward and completely closes your airway. In other words, you stop breathing. It is dangerous and can kill you. I do not think I could sleep with one of the breathing machines they use so I sleep with the head of my bed raised and try to stay on my sides.

However, one night I went to sleep and somehow must have gotten off my side and into a position that was not safe. I woke up suddenly, fully awake and conscious, and was in a different place.

I remember feeling a slight tinge of fear but was mostly confused, thinking where am I?? All around me was nothing but deep blackness until suddenly I could see this spiral of beautiful, puffy white clouds spiraling off into the distance. I did not want to look at the far distant end of the spiral because I had this sudden knowledge that if I looked at it, there would be no going back. Somehow I just knew that. Don’t know how, but I just did, but I was not given a choice. I had to look at the end of the spiral, and so I did.

Next, let me say that I had no physical sensation at all. I was fully conscious, but there were no physical sensations. I had no awareness of a body.

To get back to where I was, as soon as I looked at the end of the spiral of clouds, I was in the other place, but this one was different. This beautiful, beautiful light was everywhere. It glistened and shone like nothing I have ever seen. But the light was alive. There was an intelligence or presence inside the light. Like nothing I have ever experienced.

It was so bright it almost hurt to look at it and the colors of the rainbow were moving through it constantly. It was so bright that I turned to look away, but again, I was not given a choice. I had to look at the light so I did.

When I turned to look at it again, suddenly it felt like somebody had taken me and thrown me as hard as they could up against a brick wall. There was this really hard boom, and I was back inside my body. Totally awake but back inside of my body going “What just happened to me?”

I laid there for a few minutes, thinking about what I had just seen and experienced. I moved around a little trying to get my bearings back and then decided the only thing it could have been was for a few minutes or less, because it happened so quickly, so very quickly, is I think I died! It is the only explanation I can think of.

I believe for a very few brief seconds, I was allowed to see some of the glory of the Living God. The light was beautiful beyond words. I wish everyone could have seen it. Unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.

The only reason I wanted to tell this is I hope it will reassure everyone that there really is life after death, and that God is more beautiful than any of my weak human words could ever express.

I pray that the living God Himself will bless your day and your whole life and that you can get to know Him better. He really does love you profoundly, passionately and completely. God Bless You.

Daily Distractions

GodvsSatan

You have an ancient enemy, Satan, the devil, whatever word, both are the same. He is the father of all lies, and he wants to distract you, however he can, to take your attention off of your real created purpose which is to be in intimate fellowship with your beautiful, wonderful living Creator God. We are to be reflections of His beauty, love and glory to the rest of His creation. Focus. He will use anything, lust for money, love, ego, attention. Don’t let him deter or distract you. God wants to share all of His beauty with you and let you find Him and get to know Him. Praise God!!
