Jesus is the Light!

Everything and I do mean everything that we have on this earth can be made into a parable to understand the ways of God. Take for instance our ways of traveling.  Roads, signs, bridges etc….  There are roads and on these roads are all sorts of signs that help us get to where we are going.  Life itself is a road and if we look around we can see signs everywhere that show us where we are going. If we ignore those signs we get lost and or suffer consequences. Sometimes that is death or an accident.  The same holds true with life in general and the paths we choose to take. 

The Bible says there is only one way to get to Heaven and that is through Jesus Christ! Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” (John 14:6)  One can take the wrong road and go someplace else besides Heaven if they do not follow the signs that God has given us!  The signs are all around us!  The world is in darkness and cannot see and some refuse to see these signs.  

The bible says that the wages of sin is death.  Most people have within their own hearts a moral compass that shows them what sin is. They know when they are doing right and when they are doing wrong.  This is built in to us because God created us that way!  It shows too as a lot of people that don’t even know Jesus as Lord are basically good hearted people. But it is also obvious that there are some that shut that compass off or decide not to pay attention to it.  😦  Sadly these people will follow the wrong path which ultimately leads to death.  

If you are seeking the right path know this.  Jesus is the light!  He will show you that path.  It isn’t that hard to understand really.  The biggest problem most times is our own foolish pride and or ego.  Some people think that Jesus is a crutch.  I am here to tell you right now that if He is I need that crutch!  But He really isn’t a crutch, He is a rock!  Jesus is THE ROCK on which I choose to build my life!  My faith is in Him and Him alone. There is no other way than through Him to reach the Father and this I know in my heart.  If you don’t know Jesus as the Lord of your life please do not wait any longer to seek Him out.  Time is short now and the time of Grace is nearing the end. Don’t wait until it is too late and you are thinking: I should have listened to those people I thought were crazy.  Jesus loves you! You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. It is a decision that you will never regret.

Matthew 7:7-8 (KJV)

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Psalm 89 Remembering the Covenant with David, and Sorrow for Lost Blessings

Psalm 89

New King James Version (NKJV)

A Contemplation[a] of Ethan the Ezrahite.

89 I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever;
With my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.
For I have said, “Mercy shall be built up forever;
Your faithfulness You shall establish in the very heavens.”

“I have made a covenant with My chosen,
I have sworn to My servant David:
‘Your seed I will establish forever,
And build up your throne to all generations.’” Selah

And the heavens will praise Your wonders, O Lord;
Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the saints.
For who in the heavens can be compared to the Lord?
Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened to theLord?
God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints,
And to be held in reverence by all those around Him.
Lord God of hosts,
Who is mighty like You, O Lord?
Your faithfulness also surrounds You.
You rule the raging of the sea;
When its waves rise, You still them.
10 You have broken Rahab in pieces, as one who is slain;
You have scattered Your enemies with Your mighty arm.

11 The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours;
The world and all its fullness, You have founded them.
12 The north and the south, You have created them;
Tabor and Hermon rejoice in Your name.
13 You have a mighty arm;
Strong is Your hand, and high is Your right hand.
14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne;
Mercy and truth go before Your face.
15 Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!
They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.
16 In Your name they rejoice all day long,
And in Your righteousness they are exalted.
17 For You are the glory of their strength,
And in Your favor our horn is exalted.
18 For our shield belongs to the Lord,
And our king to the Holy One of Israel.

19 Then You spoke in a vision to Your holy one,[b]
And said: “I have given help to one who is mighty;
I have exalted one chosen from the people.
20 I have found My servant David;
With My holy oil I have anointed him,
21 With whom My hand shall be established;
Also My arm shall strengthen him.
22 The enemy shall not outwit him,
Nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
23 I will beat down his foes before his face,
And plague those who hate him.

24 “But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him,
And in My name his horn shall be exalted.
25 Also I will set his hand over the sea,
And his right hand over the rivers.
26 He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father,
My God, and the rock of my salvation.’
27 Also I will make him My firstborn,
The highest of the kings of the earth.
28 My mercy I will keep for him forever,
And My covenant shall stand firm with him.
29 His seed also I will make to endure forever,
And his throne as the days of heaven.

30 “If his sons forsake My law
And do not walk in My judgments,
31 If they break My statutes
And do not keep My commandments,
32 Then I will punish their transgression with the rod,
And their iniquity with stripes.
33 Nevertheless My lovingkindness I will not utterly take from him,
Nor allow My faithfulness to fail.
34 My covenant I will not break,
Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.
35 Once I have sworn by My holiness;
I will not lie to David:
36 His seed shall endure forever,
And his throne as the sun before Me;
37 It shall be established forever like the moon,
Even like the faithful witness in the sky.” Selah

38 But You have cast off and abhorred,
You have been furious with Your anointed.
39 You have renounced the covenant of Your servant;
You have profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.
40 You have broken down all his hedges;
You have brought his strongholds to ruin.
41 All who pass by the way plunder him;
He is a reproach to his neighbors.
42 You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries;
You have made all his enemies rejoice.
43 You have also turned back the edge of his sword,
And have not sustained him in the battle.
44 You have made his glory cease,
And cast his throne down to the ground.
45 The days of his youth You have shortened;
You have covered him with shame. Selah

46 How long, Lord?
Will You hide Yourself forever?
Will Your wrath burn like fire?
47 Remember how short my time is;
For what futility have You created all the children of men?
48 What man can live and not see death?
Can he deliver his life from the power of the grave?Selah

49 Lord, where are Your former lovingkindnesses,
Which You swore to David in Your truth?
50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of Your servants—
How I bear in my bosom the reproach of all the many peoples,
51 With which Your enemies have reproached, O Lord,
With which they have reproached the footsteps of Your anointed.

52 Blessed be the Lord forevermore!
Amen and Amen.

Do Not Be Afraid! God is in Control!

So many things are going on around us every day. Things are happening so fast and furious and many of them are frightening and even terrifying to some.
Please try to focus your eyes and hearts on Jesus. Remember that God is still in control! He loves us very very much and all these things are happening for a reason.
Though many of us feel helpless there is something we can do. We can put our trust in Him and Him alone. All of what is happening, is being allowed to make us redirect our trust from the things of this world to the Lord of Lord’s and King of King’s sweet Jesus. (Although the enemy would have it be the other way around. Don’t let him win.)
Jesus is our infallible King! So therefore it is to Him we must direct our trust, allegiance, obedience, and faith. If you believe in God and worship Jesus the world government is not your government but Jesus IS THE KING! We must crown Him King of King’s and Lord of Lords in all things and in all ways! He is the one that should Govern our lives! He can move mountains and so can we when we walk in His will. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Nothing is impossible with God!
Because the “world” lacks the knowledge of God is it truly in captivity to the evil that rules this world. Our leaders are not Godly and they are leading us down a path of destruction for without the knowledge of God we all shall surely perish. Seek Him today while He can still be found. The Bible says in Romans 8:28 ” And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. ”
Do you love God? If so then seek His will in your life that you may be called according to His purpose in these last days. The fields are ripe for harvest! There is no such thing as too many workers! Be encouraged today knowing that God is in control and He has a plan and all these things that are happening are part of that plan in some way. His love is greater than we can even imagine. Put your life in His hands today. You won’t regret it!Imageriss

Thoughts and Sharing Current events

Just thought I would talk a little about what I have been up to lately and share a little of my own thoughts.  Much of my time is being spent trying to list things on the internet to sell.  I have been working on a  little web site and am now adding things to it for sell. After much thought I decided to just put things in my stores on Etsy, and Bonanza and just link the items in on my page.
I am not a web master and had to find an easy and free wysiwyg editor to work with which is truly easier said than done. And I know nothing about CSS and can not even figure out how to make a style sheet.  The point here is that one gains a new respect for people who build web sites when they pursue a project of this sort.
My main reason for the web page is that people are always asking me where I list my things.  I have more than one place and with the web page I can share all of those places at one time.  Seems like a great idea anyway!  The problem is that it is very time consuming and trying to juggle buiding the web site and accomplishing the other things that I have to do in my life is difficult to say the least.  And yes I am saying that with a smile on my face.
It is a challenge and one that I hope I can accomplish.  Slowly I am adding some things to my stores and I do mean slowly. Hopefully as I get going I will gain momentum and get things listed faster.  When I look around on the web and see stores that have 100’s and thousands of items I think; “Wow! These people have put a lot into that.  I bet they had help.”  It is a lot to do by yourself and involves a lot more than people understand.  I am the photographer, book keeper, lister, web page builder, writer, buyer, seller, mail clerk, bargain finder, social media person, computer operator, and then on top of that wife, chief cook and bottle washer, and overall household manager. I guess one might say I am a multi tasker.  Not a very good one either!
One thing I know for sure is this.  If it were not for my relationship with Jesus I would go completely stark raving mad. A lot of things get put off til tomorrow that I thought I might get done today. Many things sit on the back burner for the day when I might be able to get to them. Sometimes I tend to put God on the back burner and then I remember that He belongs front and center, in my heart and Lord of my life.
It is when I keep Him there that things don’t seem so tough.  You see He carries me most of the time.  When I get too tired to walk He tells me everything is going to be ok.  This is just a season and soon it will all be in the past and I will be able to breath a sigh of relief and know that at least I tried to do what I was supposed to do.
There have been times in my life that were much tougher than now. A time when I had no place to call home, times when freedom was a dream, times of hunger, fear for my life,  loneliness, despair, heartache and deep depression.  Grateful doesn’t even begin to express the way I feel about my life at this present time.  Blessed is more like it, although I know that through it all and because of it all I have been blessed.
Many things that might have been tragic in my life have been turned around for the good by an Almighty God that loved me and lifted me up no matter the situation. Many times it happened  in ways that I would not have chosen but God’s ways are higher than mine and He chose the way that would teach me a lesson that I would never forget.  I know He was right and am truly grateful for it.  Everything that I have gone through in my life serves a higher purpose. I can understand and empathize with others that have gone through similar situations or may be going through them now.  I am not one to judge people because when I point one finger at them there are 3 pointing back at me.
Yes everything happens for a reason and this is all just a season soon to pass.  We are in a day and age when any moment the Rapture may take place. Many terrible things are happening in the world what with all the active volcanoes, the earthquakes, floods, pestilence, disease, violence, wars and rumors of wars and signs in the heavens that tell us that the time is near. This Day of Grace is drawing to an end.  My heart is heavy for those that are lost or those that scoff at God. Those that call what is evil good and profane the Word of God to make a mockery of Him.  My hope is in God and it is in Him alone that we can find peace, salvation, and the safety and security that we really need.  An eternal security like none that anyone else can offer us is to be had if we have Jesus as Lord of our life!
Ask Jesus to be Lord of your life today. You will never regret it because His yoke is easy and His burden is light.  There is only one way to enter the gates of heaven and Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Light!  He is the Lamb of God that was slain for the sins of the World. Without Him there is no hope. Without Him all would perish.
