A PERSPECTIVE OF THE SCALE OF LIFE

images

There are so many smart and wise people on this earth. They have a strong inner person to do right and make right choices. People who choose to do the right thing and treat others the way they want to be treated, because of the strong morals that have been either instilled in them or have been a conviction of their own heart.

People who by choosing right have received blessings for their wonderful choices. Not that they haven’t had struggles, because they have, but their strong will to choose right and do good no matter what, has benefited them greatly.

The only problem for a great majority of them is their struggle wrestling with, is there a God? A good majority have a hard time believing in a God because they see no need for God. They have done just fine without Him, or have they?

You see I hope you will be challenged by my perspective and my strong belief. Though unlike you, I didn’t begin with such a strong conviction to do good and choose right. Unfortunate or purposed, I under went many difficulties and poor role models, That tempted me to choose the opposite, I took the wrong course!

Which leads me to this topic (A PERSPECTIVE OF THE SCALE OF LIFE) You see the bible discuses Gods scale of blessing! His words are, you reap what you sow! So regardless if your a believer or not, His scale will never change. If you are sowing character by your great Choices, you will reap the blessing!

What does this mean at the end of your life? Will God remember all of your good even though you never believed in Him?

Romans 3:23 NIV 23: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

So even if you do right and choose good you still fall short of the glory of God!

Romans 3:10-18New King James Version (NKJV)

10 As it is written:

“There is none righteous, no, not one;
11 There is none who understands;
There is none who seeks after God.
12 They have all turned aside;

The scripture says none are righteous not one; none who seeks after God.

So is it harder for someone who is broken and chooses wrong or someone who chooses right to seek God?

I believe it is hard for both on the scale of life. I also think it might be easier for someone broken because they have great need which puts them in position to seek for help no matter where, and even last resort, seeking God!

So the challenge or greatest character choice for someone who does and chooses well within themselves is, to seek God regardless if they see their need!

The need might not be now, but what about the end of your life? You spent your whole life choosing right but missed the most important choice which is seeking God! When you do seek and receive Him, you get the greatest blessing of your life, salvation!

Yet if your own ability grows pride so you never do seek Him, find yourself guilty of that sin, and unrepentant leads to eternity in hell!

I pray and hope you will consider my perspective and belief and most importantly the word of God!

God bless you in seeking Him!

Who is it that found my wondering heart
This heart that leads me astray
A wanderer whom darkness falls
Memories of one who calls, to the lost
The markers along the way
Road signs that simply say
I am here, come this way
Ignored the signs so many times
Yet I find, your still here pointing the way
In my myopia, looking for a utopia
That I would never find
You patiently waited to remind
What I already knew in my heart
I’m not alone, there is one who walks with me
One who is faithful, who loves me
You have shown me the truth
Sunny days or stormy weather
Only one thing matters
You and I, together

TO LIFE AND NEW BEGINNINGS

TO LIFE AND NEW BEGINNINGS

A long and dark winter
A gloom hovers
Swallowing emotions
The feeling of loss
Seasons counting the cost
The old dying
Pressing forward in love
And faith I’m relying
On all that is written
Of one who died and rose
From the dead
A newness can be seen
In the face of the redeemed
A vine withered and cut off
A new branch forming
It feels so soft
A light breaks through
From all that seemed lost
Promise layers the sky with color
The rain seems to discover
The life it is bringing
All around an echo of singing
To life and new beginnings

OUR FIRST LOVE

First I felt the prodding of my heart
It took a little time, but then I began to start
Seeking to know you, for who you are
I began to see every time you reached out to me
Your longing for me to see, the life you had for me
I remember when I first felt your presence
The evidence that I was yours
Your still small voice, I came to adore
Your whisper that would begin to pour
Over my heart, how much you love me
The way you slowly transformed my life
These thoughts made me stop to realize
What I’m truly thankful for
Our first love

TWO SIDES OF WEAKNESS

maxresdefault

Today my mind has drifted on thoughts of my own personal weakness. Remembering back when I first surrendered my life to Christ. What a mess!
The thought that caught my attention this morning was weakness, and I realized the power weakness had over my life. I realized my weakness has the power to turn into one of two things. My weakness can be turned to strength, or my weakness can make me hard inside, which is like fools Gold. In my past I allowed my weakness to harden my heart, giving me the impression of a renewed strength. Anger hid my weakness and gave the appearance of how strong I really was! This defense to my weakness worked at times, but long term was destroying my heart and person. Dealing with many insecurities due to childhood experiences, I found the only way to survive, was to put on thicker skin, like they say! The thing I didn’t realize was every layer of thick skin I put on, was going directly over my heart. After so many layers, the heart begins not to feel, and when something did penetrate, I found other ways to cover my weakness. Alcohol certainly seemed to do the job. You can begin to see my point about hardening the heart, hardening our heart makes it sick, and once it’s sick, it only gets worse in time.

This is one of our enemies biggest temptations he places on us, and the reason is because of one of Gods promises. When we place our weakness in God, He promises to make us strong. A real spiritual strength, not a false empty strength that comes with chains. I will talk more about this in a minute. Let me continue to talk about how satin uses our weakness to separate us from God and take us far away from God. Hopefully you saw the Movie Batman, The Dark Night. In the movie the evil Joker knew that Harvey Dent was Gotham’s hope, The White Knight, so the Joker knew if he could damage Harvey’s heart, he could possibly turn him bad and his plan worked, turning Harvey Dent into Two Face. Isn’t that how it works in all of us, when difficulties and pain come, the choice we have to allowing them to harden our hearts, allowing anger, pride, putting on masks, listening to lies and allowing them to turn to rage in our hearts.

Weakness is such a vulnerable characteristic we all have. Most of us have been vulnerable around other and have found it not to be safe, only a cause of pain and rejection. This is what leads to temptation and to harden our hearts and putting on masks.

In Gods word it says!

2 Corinthians 12:9 New King James Version (NKJV)

9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Isaiah 40:29
29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Psalm 119:28

28 My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word.

Philippians 4:13

13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Isaiah 40:31

31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

So the answer is to bring our weakness to Him, repenting of our pride and ungodly anger, praying for Him to turn our weakness into strength remaining humble and waiting on Him. God bless you! I hope this spoke to you as it did to me!

TRULY LOVE ME

I sit here waiting on you
A place so dear and true
The place I first heard your voice
As you quieted my thoughts, my heart rejoiced
From the peace that came over me
There, came your still small voice
Speaking kindness to my damaged heart
It was here, you would start
To show me who I am
You gave me beauty, from the ashes
You took my my sin, by the lashes
That exposed, your devotion and love
You revealed your amazing presence
The sweetness, the essence, of your love
You captured my heart, changed me from within
You became my invisible friend
You unveiled faith to me
You gave me eyes to see
You guided me to the door, I knocked
You opened, and my life unfolded
To the process of knowing, you
Truly love me

I’M SIMPLY BROKEN

A MOMENT IN HEAVEN

If I am honest, and look deep inside
There is nothing I can hide from you
The deep wounds I try to cover
The mountains of pain I refuse to discover
Everyday I act as if I am OK
Everything remains the same
I know there is a work you want to do
A change you want to walk me through
There is healing you desire to bring
If I would be vulnerable and cling to you
This battle between my spirit and flesh
The spirit leading me to water and rest
The flesh feeding my desires, bringing stress
How can I, the clay, say to the Master
Why did you make me like this
I can continue this path and wish
Things were different, or I can submit
To your will and admit, I can’t do it without you
Cleanse me from the inside and make me new
I’m simply broken

UNCERTAINTY

Dim the lights, take the white candle by your hand
Then light it, place it on it’s stand
Focus on it’s flame and understand
All that it represents, Holy is He
The pure fire that burns in me
The light that came into our darkness
Light my heart and may it never part with this
The King of Kings called my name
My life in Him, will never be the same
His flame burns all my transgressions
His spirit guides my daily lessons
The growing and learning of who He is
A life that was saved and now lives
For Him and Him alone
His love and grace has set the tone
Of His unwavering light
A light that burns eternally bright
A mercy, we one day, shall fully know
It was on the cross, devotion and love was shown
He will never leave or forsake us
Though we are faithless, He is faithful and we can trust
Every word that comes from the mouth of God
So gaze at the flame, let it, your heart be prod
By the light of truth, and let it burn in you
Allow your heart to be burdened free
Open your eyes, to His burning flame and see
No longer, living in
uncertainty

BLESSING WILL RAIN

I FOUND CHRIST_edited-1

Blessing will rain

As a child he struggled, he didn’t feel smart
He was skinny and weak, and walked with a sad heart
He hated his ears, the other kids would cause tears
That would flow for years, from the teasing
He had a small bladder and wet his bed
Can there be anymore said, of the challenges he faced
His family was like the Brady Bunch from hell
Nine kids in all, what a story to tell
Of the division in that house
If you were a mouse living there, you would have moved
On Halloween, liqueur bottles would sing, as they crashed on the front porch
His mother torched with anger from his fathers drinking
I wonder what his neighbors were thinking
He grew up also, with a problem drinking
He had the feeling his life was sinking
Into a life not worth living
His thoughts were unforgiving, filled with lies
Of who he was, when the change came it wasn’t because
Of the pit he fell in
It was because of the one who picked him up and forgave his sin
It was only then his life would begin
All of the lies crushed by the truth
From the present all of the way back to his youth
He began to understand, his life had purpose
All of the pain could be used for others to gain
As his heart began to change from helping others
No matter what you have gone through, he said
You can rise from the dead, to the living in Christ
Set yourself aside and care for peoples pain
Blessing will rain

HE TAKES US PLACES OF A DIFFERENT KIND

A MOMENT IN HEAVEN

HE TAKES US PLACES OF A DIFFERENT KIND

From the hill top, all I see is green
The rain that falls is seen
As it falls over the forest
and reflects off the leaves
The sun breaking through the clouds
Beams of light, as it gleams through the trees
Beautiful is not the word to describe, but glory
He took His time to tell a story
As I walk down the hill, the rain is pouring
It strikes my face with a slight sting
I’m ready for shelter
Very little on this journey did I bring
As I get to the edge of the the forest
I get out my sheer to cut a path
Looking forward to begin drying from the bath
The forest is very dark, with sunlight in certain places
Giants leaves, vines, bushes, and trees
Sounds of birds singing, and the buzzing of bees
little did I know what this journey would bring
I found shelter and a place to lay my head and then I dreamed
There was an Angel that glided down from the sky
Terrified, I asked myself, why, she was here
She said, this rain forest is a magical place
Where you will find the wonders of Gods grace
Everything here symbolizes spiritual truth
It is here if you open your heart, you’ll regain your youth
Your mind will open, your eyes will see, Him in everything
Journey, discover, enjoy the wonders of this holy ground
Look around and listen for His still small voice
when you wake, you can come back to visit, it’s a choice
At anytime open your heart and your mind to the spirit
In no time you will hear it, the rain pouring down
The wonderful sound of the trees blowing their leaves
You will see the unicorn glowing through the trees
As she makes her way to the falls, where the river calls to Him
Glory is the God on high, when we enter into the presence of the divine
He takes us places of a different kind

Jeremiah 33:3New International Version (NIV)

3 ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’

Is it wrong to put things like unicorns, the word magic, and female angels in a Christian post? Have things gotten so legalistic that simple imagination is seen as evil or mythology. Is it not possible there are creatures of beauty in heaven we have no concept of. I love to write, and I love figures of beauty. By no means do I desire to mislead anyone’s beliefs. Or add something that isn’t in the bible. I believe God knows our hearts and loves us to dream of beautiful things even if they are not mentioned in the bible. If it bothers you I will remove them, let me know!
