I'm going out on a limb here today because I want to discuss fear. I also want to talk about God. So if you are uncomfortable click on another site. I'll also be ranting a bit.
All around us is fear mongering. Ebola, The Illuminati, the economy, the government doing unheard of illegal activity, predators, and so much more
Last night a post came up on my Facebook page that declared the government is putting RF chips in the Ebola vaccine. That could be true, IF there was an actual vaccine available. I checked it out and asked a friend - who is a great researcher- to check it out also. Neither of us could find information on the person who was suppose to be the whistle blower or who owned the 'news' site that the report came from. Although I don't trust Snopes to be entirely on the truth side of things, I also checked on their site.
Reading this was the straw that broke the camel's back. I was on overload with fear induced information. I became very tired in an instant.
I have no doubt that the scales of good vs. evil are unbalanced. The important question is why is that? Why are children suffering with deadly diseases? Why are marriages failing at a more than 50% rate? Where do we point the finger?
A friend of mine always said when we point a finger at someone, four are pointing back at us. Very wise words. Is it time mainstream society begin to take responsibility for their actions? This country needs a change of heart. We need to recognize and bring God back into our personal lives and homes.
I'm not saying to try to evangelize our friends and family. I'm saying that each of us needs to bring God into our lives. That would be the God of Christianity. Jesus Christ, who died for our sins and inequities. He did the sacrifice before we committed the sins. Now that's love and trust.
Marriage is a union. It is about loving and caring for the other person more than you care for yourself. It's never giving up on the other person and turning to God to reach a person's heart. That place where no person can reach. (The exception is ay kind of abuse - physical or emotional. Then we pray for the person from a distance.)
How about having a family? Children are a blessing straight from heaven. Look at how many people disregard the needs of children. Needs include time, sheltering from evil, and loving discipline. I really don't want to hear how things have changed and we need to keep up with the times. Look at what is out there and then decide if you think children should keep up with the times.
Greeting each day with a simple prayer and putting your day in God's hands is so simple, but how many people in this country do this today? Ebola? God knows about it. He knows every under handed thing anyone has planned. He can thwart plans of evil, we only need to ask and leave it in His hands. Let Him do what He promised us - to care for every living soul that is created. He is not a God of fear. He wants what's best for us, but does not force it on us because He has given us free will to make our choices. He wants to be loved, not because of who He is, but because we choose to love Him. Just like we want friends to like us for who we are, so does God.
Even if you are having a difficult time believing my words, God knows this. He also knows why and what trauma caused a person's response. What would it hurt to ask Him about heaven even if you do not believe? If nothing happens, then you go on you way just as before. But, I will make you a promise. He will reveal Himself to you in a way that you can relate.
Please know one thing. We don't have to be afraid of all the garbage out there that is quietly sneaking and stealing peace from our hearts and spirits. We don't have to pay attention to the half truths. We can live a peaceful and simple life by putting our trust in God and what He offers us. Enjoy your day in peace.
