RUN!!

doesn’t it seem like people are against you a lot? in today’s world everyone fights against each other always seeing the bad in each other…it’s getting kind of sickening if you ask me.
i’m not a pessimist, by any means, yet this troubles me. i hate seeing everyone backbiting, going for each other’s throats over silly things.

where’s the love these days?
i’ve come to terms with it and finally concluded, people are truly lovers of themselves and don’t care who they hurt or who they step on to get things they want..they’ve forgotten how to love others and deny themselves…what a crazy world we live in huh? it’s all a sick game don’tcha think?
well, the more i gave it thought, the more frustrated i became and started my own little version of how the game should be played…i’ve asked myself this, if someone has it in for me b/c they don’t like the color of my hair, skin or eyes, then should i extend grace to that person or make them feel the pain they’re causing me? should i spew my mouth off at them or turn in silence and walk away avoiding strife at any cost? the more i thought about it, the more scenarios my little mind came up with! i tried my best to be christian in my thinking until i heard about a young boy i knew who was bullied and beat up in school and i became a bit different for that moment in time! that’s when i realized sometimes one must stand up to some people…and that’s when i figured out my human side made a decision…and it was this…”take your best shot, and it better be good, because if i get up you’re gonna wish i didn’t!!!!!
is that a good example? probably not, but if you think about it, the flesh can make one lose control, espeicially if you hurt any of my loved ones!!!

obviously it’s time i change my focus and let my flesh sit down for a spell…ya think?

as i did that and surrendered my thoughts i began to look from a different perspectiveHis perspective instead of mine (ouchie)…i realized i was thinking from human thoughts and not with the mind and heart of the spirit. as i refocused, i began to see it from another side, His side…i saw hurting people who lashed out because they were unhappy with themselves. i saw hurting people who were never taught how to manage their emotions. i saw hurting people who never tasted love, pure lovemy heart hurts now

soooooo, now, i felt the pain of some and realized maybe if i pray for them, maybe their life can be changed…maybe if i could touch one or two or three of them i can show them what love is…maybe if i smile at them, they’ll sense i’m not against them, but for them…maybe, just maybe, that will help them move toward the warmer side of love and succumb to the truth of His great love…hmmmm…

got lots to think about now…

peace out

ps…in answer to my own question …yes, i should extend grace to them…but if they’re on the dark side’s team…then, they should run… (sorry, there’s still some human blood running through my veins) 😉

LOOK AHEAD!

CANCELLED...your past has been cancelled...move ahead to your futureHappy 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?

believelet’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!!

peace out…

to those of us who love the Jersey Shore, here’s a video a NJ Reporter made after the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy…for those of us who hold treasured memories of all the great, fun times we held dear…lets hope one day soon, it will be rebuilt and will bring many more memories for us and future generations…
we can only hope and pray it will and once again bring happiness to all the surrounding areas of people who came from everywhere, near and far, just to get a taste of our beautiful beaches, our boardwalks and lots of fun times together with friends and family…
if you lived in or visited the Jersey Shore, you were blessed with wonderful memories..,
here to all those working hard at bringing it all back… remember, we’re Jersey Strong!
