bear with me on this one…it’s long, i know…i apologize for the lengthy rant…
obviously most know we are in the Lenten season, and many Christians celebrate it and finish off with Easter, Resurrection Sunday…but here’s a thought…how about we celebrate His victory every day?…
why do we only celebrate it once a year?
don’t get me wrong, celebrating Him is good, NO MATTER WHEN IT IS… but i can’t seem to understand this, if He is your Savior and you say you love Him, why enjoy Him only one season a year?(well, two counting Christmas)…am i missing something here?
i don’t want to belabor this one, but it truly messes with my head knowing so many christians declare this specific day or season, and i know it’s sincere to them, and then in one day it’s over and becomes like a flat tire afterward…they seem to forget who (whom?) they’ve just celebrated!! is it me, am i missing something here?
oh, and btw, this pic i posted about celebrating the weekend? well, it caught my eye and caused a stir in me, and that’s where this post was sparked…come on, the weekend only? hello? isn’t He worth more than just a weekend? what are we to do with Him the rest of the year?
ok, obviously i’ve made my point…and please believe me, i’m NOT judging, honestly, i’m NOT…i just don’t understand all the hoopla… forgive me for not understanding, i’m trying….i guess my heart runs different…i can’t get by one day without celebrating His great love for me and being comforted knowing He died and rose again after all that horrendous punishment He went through…again, forgive me, but He only gets one day? noooooo, i can’t do that…He gets all my days, even if i slack off a day here or there, i find myself running after Him when i realize i didn’t give Him my attention that day…He means too much to me to not acknowledge Him and bow my heart to Him every day…
but here’s another reason of why i am so in love with Him…i love when He says, be of good cheer!!! do you see that? don’t you see how He celebrates us!!! He did it all for us!!! He delights in His pain on that horrific day, and tells us to be of good cheer!!! wow!!! how can i NOT celebrate Him every day? YES!!! be of good cheer!!!!! our Lord laid down His life for us on that glorious Good Friday! and 3 Days later He rose again!!! AND, He raised us with Him and said we would sit with Him at the right hand of His Father (who is also NOW our daddy !) what a GLORIOUS day (and every day) for us to celebrate… and, He has given us authority to declare He HAS overcome the world!!! what a God we serve!!! isn’t that reason enough to be celebrating Him EVERY DAY? come on now, we should celebrating Him daily and live it like we believe it? didn’t He do enough for us, isn’t He worth it? i think so…how about you?
i have little to say on this…except…
MERCY truly does TRIUMPH over judgement…
sprinkle on a little love and VOILA!
Happy New Year!
everyone is wishing each other a Happy New Year today, and Yes, i too, am wishing you all the same!
i hope and pray it’s a beautiful and blessed one for you…but i’m also praying that you all will leave your past year (or years) behind you and step into what’s ahead…imagine you’re past has been cancelled…because it has!!
the future is a beautiful thing if you look at it from our true Father’s standpoint…take a peek from His perspective and see the way He sees!
this could be a divine year for you…why not take a different approach this year and grab hold of the new things that lie ahead? why not trust Him and believe that He can make all things new and bring good things into your future?
let’s start the New Year off right and BELIEVE… it won’t cost you anything, but it may payoff in the end and you could be happier and blessed beyond your dreams….
go ahead…i dare ya to dream and believe…
i double dog dare ya…so what’do ya say? are you in? i am!!
of course it’s me with another rant…and away we go!!
guess there are things we can’t explain or figure out…BUT, one thing’s for sure, i can’t tolerate people staring you dead in the face and not even flinch while lying…grrrrr…
this, to me, is what i’ve been experiencing for quite some time (as i’m sure many of you have as well)…and may i ask, isn’t it the most irritating thing ever?
i think what freaks me the most is when it’s the “so-called” christian brothers/sisters that do it (honestly, i expect it from the world, duh).
i’ve spent decades believing there are still good in people, but these christians make (us) look like total hypocrites, and seriously, i’m done with it all at this point in time…
i have my few “mainstay” christian friends who are real and aren’t afraid of being who they really are, and honestly that’s refreshing these days, AND i’m very thankful for them!
don’t mean to sound so down on our brothers and sisters, but come on now, stop with the churchy faces and facades y’all put on and be real…this is a good part of why we have so many problems today!!
GET WITH THE PROGRAM PEOPLE!!! stop living the lie and be true to who you really are…do you really think others don’t see through your false identity? if you can’t love you for who you were created to be, how in heaven’s name can you love anyone else?
i’m leaving this with you guys and gals…is it me?
sometimes I have to say, I can understand if my angels feel like this !
Life can be hectic and wear you to the bone...that’s when I wonder if the Angels assigned to us feel like we do? Ya think?
Days pass and time flies by faster than a speeding bullet!!!! And through it all, my strength gets zapped and I just want to fall down and close my eyes, falling into a deep sleep!
does life really continue this way? This is when I wonder how much do our angels have to endure? I’m convinced mine are sitting in this exact position, asking the good Lord if they can be put on disability for a long stretch of time!
am I the only one who feels this way? Am I crazy?
Feel free to add your thoughts …I’m really wondering About this…I’m slowly crashing and not liking it…obviously I’m not getting any younger 😉
