The Brokenness…

Mar
26

If you were to ask me to write a post about being broken, broken things and ‘brokenness’ I would have to accept your proposal and I would also have to write the post in a story type fashion. You see, sometimes, the only way for me to get my point across crisp and clear is with a story.

IMG_2631

So let me begin with a story of ‘Brokenness’ on this day.

The silence in the room was deafening as it echoed throughout the night. The boy lie awake, tormented by his emotions, restless and weary of fighting them hours on end. Trying his best not to give in. He stares up at the blank ceiling. There in that white void in the late hour of the night he finds solitude, comfort and assurance. But not peace. He stares for hours at this ceiling, dwelling on things of the past, dreaming, praying, hoping, wishing. Crying. Crying out, crying for and crying about, the things of the past. Can he find comfort in his tears? Is there rest for the weary? Is there solitude and peace for those who weep and mourn in the late hour of the lonely night? Or is there just pain and despair? Hurt and grief? To what end? How can this be? The boy cries harder with his face buried in his pillow like a weak and feeble infant with no shame. Why would God permit such heartache to pierce the soul of such a young child, a servant of Christ? A doer of good. How could it be? Does the good Lord not hear the cries that is bellowed throughout the night by this young boy? Does he have no care at all for what happens to this child? Does it not concern God one bit? Why, oh why must the good suffer so, while the evil receive so much goodness with so little turmoil or hardships? This is the question the heartbroken boy cries out into the dark and silent lonely night.

Are there answers for this young soul? Is there hope? Or is there only pain and heartache? Alone and tired and broken and scared and so afraid of losing all he has left, for he’s already lost so much. Friends, loved ones, beloved pets. How can such a tormented person go on in this life? Expected to always be smiling, always be shining, always a comfort to those in need in the late hour of their lonely grief. To what end is this tragic pain? To what end? Can others simply not understand? Or can they understand and just not care? Is it selfishness for this child to seek solitude and comfort and confine in others? Is it selfish to want one lonely night to himself to grieve, to weep, to mourn and cry out for his Father’s help?

So many have asked of this boy, “can you talk?” and no matter the late hour, he responds. “Yes.” No matter the events that are happening in his own life, he sets them aside and finds temporary comfort in paying attention to the heartache and brokenness of those around him. But, again I must ask. To what end? How can one go on? How can one be expected to smile through the tears? How can one be expected to forget, expected to move on so quickly from such turmoil, such torment. How can that be, how can it be? Now, let us discuss this child’s Family.

There is a Family:

A Mother, a Father, a Daughter a Son. And the Daughter’s two children as well. And in these days, what are families most prone to? What is most likely to happen to families? From a biblical perspective, heartache, pain, turmoil and yes… Brokenness, the enemy works it all out  so well. That it seems as if Mother is against Daughter and Daughter is against Mother. Father against Son, and Son is against Father, and on and on and on when will the brokenness be gone? There is so much division, separation and hurt. The boy often finds himself crying himself to sleep at night. Crying out, asking, why wondering If,  if his family is so divided, if there is so much strife and so much anger and heartache. How can his family ever make it to heaven together? How?

With the thoughts of Daughter against Mother and the thoughts of Mother against daughter, constant arguing and never ending fighting and inevitable division, how can there ever be a path to heaven for his family or anyone? How? Why must it be him? Why must this hurt and tragedy happen to him and to his family? Sickness, confusion, strife and pain. Why must this happen? Does God not hear the cries of the young boy in the middle of the  lonely night? Does he simply not care? Why must the world be so broken? When the boy is finally able to sleep, he wakes with one thought and one question on his mind.

I wake up this morning to families torn apart and I wish I could fix it, give them a brand new start. But I can’t. I know you’re hurting and I know you’re in pain. I know how you feel. But don’t give up yet, just believe. You are stronger than you think. You’ve been through the trials and you’ve been through the pain. You have been hurt so severe. But don’t give up, you’ve made it through and yes, you are stronger than you think. And if you’ve made it through this, just think what you can do. You could change the whole world and help others too. Because you are stronger than you think.

In Conclusion:

So there you have it, my short story for “Brokenness” broken things. There will always be brokenness in one’s life and there will always be heartache and turmoil. There will always be hurting children and there will always be families torn apart. Not because of anything that God has done, but because of what man has done. The world is corrupt and the enemy is on the warpath. And more and more each day we are giving in to his ways and that just makes the world that much darker. While the boy in my story may face some hardships from time to time and while he may grieve greatly in the late hour of the lonely night. He never once let himself become consumed by darkness, and that is where we must tread ever so carefully. It is alright to grieve, it’s perfectly normally to cry and to feel sad from time to time, it is even normal to be completely overwhelmed by heartache, we are only human. But we can’t let that determine us as a person. We must keep strong and we must move on.

God is our fortress, he is our refuge and he is our mighty tower. While it may not seem like he cares for all those little children that weep and mourn in the lonely night. He does and he does listen to them, he is listening to them and he will answer them. Which is why I do my part in praying every night for every child all over the world. The abandoned child, the broken child. The child that is neglected and abused, they could use all the prayers they could get and if we can do more, then we should do that too. Until next time my friends, remember that we cannot choose the events that happen to us but we CAN choose how we respond to them. Just remember God is the great Physician and he can mend all broken things. It won’t be easy, it will take time. But nothing is impossible with God, some things may not be mended until that day in heaven when he wipes the tears from our eyes but he can and he will.

Peace – Hope – Life

Mar
19

Ladies and Gentlemen. Men, Women, Boys and Girls. While this blog post can be read entirely on it’s own, it is part of another which is entirely separate from this one. For those of you who haven’t read that, CLICK HERE. Today I will be continuing that post by discussing the last three topics I mentioned in last weeks post.

picjumbo.com_DSC_3274

I would like to get straight to the point as I wish to take up as little space as possible due to my nonsense rambling. Let us begin then shall we? First, let me begin with…

PEACE –

What is peace? Can anyone apart from God ever know true peace? Many non-believers and some modern day preachers would pose the argument that one can achieve peace without God. But what kind of peace exactly? Better locks on the doors of your home? Or a more secure security system? A vault of weapons and ammunition? How about a bunker deep beneath your feet for you to go to when ‘It all hits the fan’? Perhaps it is a $10,000 mattress? Or a $1,000 pillow? Is that how you achieve peace? Possibly, that is somewhat of a pathway to peace. But is it true peace? Is it real peace? Many people think that peace is ignoring the storms in life, they believe that if one has peace, then they are totally obliterate to the chaos around them. For that last statement, in some ways this is true. Meaning that, the chaos around one with true peace does not affect them nearly as much as it would someone without true peace.

Why?

Jesus Christ. Often times, many modern day preachers and Christians will make the case that once you come to Christ, all of your problems and worries will go away. This could not be further from the truth. In fact, once you agree to commit your life to Christ, your life is just going to begin getting chaotic and interesting! So how is this achieving true peace, you might ask? I have said this a many times and I will say it again. Being a Christian does not mean you live without storms. It means, because of Christ, you can come out of the storm VICTORIOUS! One who has true peace, does not ignore or is not obliterate to the chaos around them, they face it every single day. But because of their peace, they can conquer it and emerge from it, victorious.

The bible tells us that those who are without God do not and cannot ever have true peace. It also tells us that, peace found within God is a peace like no other. We may be able to find temporary comfort in this world, but that is all it will be. Temporary. The peace that can be found in Christ, is something to last for eternity.

HOPE –

I cannot write about this subject enough. Hope, it’s an amazing thing. And the most amazing part about hope, is not when you have a lot of it. It’s when you have very little of it. Because that, my friends… THAT is when HOPE will shine the most. How? Let me go on and explain what I mean by this. I have seen time and time and time and again where I am on my last thread of hope, just about to give up and sometimes I even have given up. But then, hope surprises me. And I am blessed and shocked in ways I could have never even predicted in a million years. You have to understand, unlike so many people I know, I have always been quite an optimistic person. I don’t know why. But I am. At this time in particular, I am very optimistic that Ted Cruz can win the Republican Nomination, but am I saying that I put my hope in HIM? No, of course not. One cannot simply put their faith in MAN and expect to get anywhere. Now, hold up. I hear you, I hear you. You’re thinking to yourself right now, shouting in your mind.

“JESUS CHRIST WAS A MAN!”

True… That’s True, Jesus Christ was IN FACT a man. But here’s the thing. A man alone, he was not. There are some Christians to this day that believe Christ is nothing more then JUST a man. Then there are those who believe that he is a ‘god’ separate from ‘God’ and both of these groups of people could not be more wrong. The scripture is clear, God was manifested in the flesh. He came to earth as a child. He ate with us, walked with us, talked with us. He felt actual pain, he felt our pain. He was in every sense of the word, a MAN. However, here’s the thing. At the same time, he WAS in every sense of the word, GOD. He healed the sick, raised the dead, cast out demons and rose from the dead. He’s God in the Father, He’s GOD in the Son, and he is GOD in the Holy Ghost. He was, he IS God.

One does not simply deny that Jesus is God. However, so many do on a daily basis. But this is besides the actual point. My hope is not in Ted Cruz. His hope is not in Ted Cruz. His hope and my hope is in Jesus Christ. So when I believe with all my heart that Cruz can and will win. It’s because I myself (and I know Ted does) put my hope In Jesus. My grandparent’s sing a song. I have shared this song over and over again. It is an oldie, but a goodie. They sing this song which was written by their pastors long ago. It is called – “Jesus My Hope Is In You” Anytime my grandma goes to sing it, often throughout the song she makes the point that hope in Christ is all we’ve got. And when you think about, it is. Scripture tells us –

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28 KJV

Brother & Sister Tune Singing “Jesus My Hope Is In You”

In Conclusion:

At this point, you are probably asking yourselves, what about ‘LIFE’? Well, that is just the thing. The key to a whole and fulfilling life is in finding true Love, Joy, Peace and Hope IN Christ! Life without Christ, is not life at all. The scripture says, to live is Christ and, to die is gain. Why? What does this mean? Without Christ, we would have no life. He died on the cross for our sins, without that sacrifice he made. None of us would be here today. He died for us, can we not at least bring ourselves to live for him? In knowing the truth of the Gospel, we know that after death, there is glory. Heaven. We should not fear death, because our reward in heaven is great. So I would like to take this moment to pose this simple question. You do not have to answer right away, but at least ponder it would you? OK, here it goes, you ready?

What Hinders You From Committing Your Life To Christ Today?

I know, I have asked this question before. But it’s a very important question that we must all come to face one day, I’ve heard so many different answers, and I find each and every single one of them interesting. But the fact is, while you sit and think you have tomorrow to choose whom ye will serve, what happens tomorrow is uncertain. Over 150,000 people die each and every single day, how many of those were saved? The answer is unknown. But the time to get right with God could not be any better, and the time to start warning all that you know and claim to love, could not be any sooner. The time is now, Christianity is not a game. It’s not, go to Church every Sunday and where your finest attire while you sit and listen to a guy preach for an hour or so. Those things are good, but Christianity is taking that message with you, out to the streets and letting others know. JESUS IS ALIVE and he SAVES.

Until next time, my dear friends.

200 Blog Posts Later…

Mar
12

If you haven’t guessed it by the title yet, or the big picture below with bold letters stating it, then you need glasses or something. Because today is my 200th blog post! Greetings, fellas, fellows, ladies, girls, gals, gentlemen, hobbitses and dwarves. I don’t know half of you as well as I should like and I like less then half of you half as well as you deserve. (Sorry, I could not resist the urge)

maxresdefault (1)

Today’ I would like to begin to talk with you about love, joy, peace, hope and life. And how one might go about obtaining these things. Win the lottery perhaps? Find a nice place to settle down with your soulmate perhaps? Install a new and improved high tech security system? Buy into the stock market to put in for your future? While all these things are perfectly acceptable actions, none of them will ever help you obtain ‘true’ love, joy, peace, hope and life. In fact, some of these things may even cause you stress, pain, heartache and cause you to grow jealous and envious and greedy of what others might have.

But for now, let us start with my basis of this entire post. This is a big number, it means that I have published 200 blog posts to this site, most of them mine and some of them guest posts, either way I have come quite a long ways since I first started blogging. It is not always easy to write and there are many occasions I feel as if I’m just writing to the wind, (most likely because most the time I am) I do not get many views, however I am fine with that.

My goal has never been about popularity, It’s always been to share a moral message with others and if I can reach one person, out of everyone in the entire world, then to me it is worth it all, because I’m not doing this for anyone else, I’m doing what I love and I’ll continue to do this, as long as I am given the opportunity to do so. Finally, let us start with the first and most important attribute of all.

LOVE:

What is ‘true’ love? What is love? It’s something that many of us wonder about and something that is still unanswered in many ways. It’s unlike anything we can explain. I don’t believe that it is something  anyone can properly explain. Words can be written, beautiful words can be written, words that make the heart warm and happy. Words that can be said to one another in the little dark moments  of ones greatest tragedies, words of passion. But then there are actions, big, little, in between. Buying a loved one that special something they’ve wanted all their life. Making a scrapbook of all the good times, or just taking that call in the late hour when a friend is in need. Love is a wonderful thing, but just how much of a wonderful thing?

I believe that the greatest example,  an amazing demonstration and the most beautiful act of love that was ever made, was made by the most high. Jesus Christ, he loved the world so much that he died in agonizing pain on a cross for our sins, I’ve said it before and I will say it again. My dear friends, THAT is LOVE. Only in Christ can one find TRUE love, within themselves.

Moving on to attribute number two.

JOY:

The scripture often speaks of ‘Joy’ unspeakable. Can you imagine, being so joyful that you could not even utter a single word of it? It is most definitely achievable, not in any way is it impossible, and as matter of fact. You can achieve it  today. Whether you are a believer or a non-believer, you found this blog post somehow. You are most likely searching for something, whether that is love, ‘joy’, peace – hope or a better life. You were led here. Do not worry, I bring good news. The good news of the gospel actually.

Of course one can find joy in many things, but to find ‘true’ joy, you have to first learn to enjoy the smaller things in life. Like the way the wind blows through the leaves on the trees in the middle of a hot summers day. Nothing is more refreshing at that time is it? (Other then a tall glass of ice cold homemade fresh squeezed lemonade) Wouldn’t you like your life to be like that? Well, you may ridicule me all you want. But I only speak the truth.

Jesus can give you that, he can come into your life like a cool breeze or a refreshing glass of real old fashioned lemonade and he can refresh you. He can fill your heart with Joy unspeakable. But how is he to do this you might ask? The answer is very simple and you are only a few words away from true love and true joy in your life. I will not ask you to repeat after me, but if you are serious about having Jesus Christ come into your life and having him refresh you and give you true love and joy in your heart. Then the very first step, is believing that he can, accepting that he can and asking him to do so, ask him to come into your life.

In Conclusion:

While there are many ways to find love, often it may not be true, and love that is fake is not love at all it is just an empty black hole that you are trying to fill an even much bigger empty black hole with and you will feel even more empty. You can find true love in a soulmate, you can find true love in friends and family. But it will not be as true a love as you will find in Christ, because there will be times when your soulmate cannot understand how you feel, your friends or your family even, but Christ will be able to.

Joy cannot be found in riches, materialistic possessions, not TRUE joy anyways, true joy can only be found in Christ. Because the fact is, you can have all the riches and all the worldly possessions there is. And still be the saddest person alive, too many celebrities have taught us this valuable lesson.

I will be back next week with my two hundredth and first blog post, to continue discussing the rest of the attributes I listed above, until then however, always remember. “There’s still good in this world Mister Frodo.”

Just ‘Steep’ A Little While…

Mar
05

No, I said that right the first time,It’s meant to be ‘Steep’ not ‘Sit.’ Yes, STEEP. S T E E P. You know, like steeping a good cuppa? A nice hot British brew? C’mon, really? You seriously got nothing at all? Ahh…

576A2A15-2A1C-46F5-8FD6-B4E9659C9ED1 (1)

Of course! Gone are the days of classic British Tea-Making techniques aren’t they? This is Murica’ we drink ‘Coffee’.Believe me, I’m not a diddly squat against coffee, I love it. Tea can often be so much better for us, on so many different levels. There are many different types of teas out there, with many different proven, and ‘effective’ benefits for all kinds of symptoms. However, today I would just like to talk about one plain type of tea in general.

BLACK TEA –

  • The specific brand in general that I prefer the most is known as England’s #1 Tea, which is called pg_tips_logo_beau(PG TIPS) as featured in the picture to your left, and above. If you’d like to get some of your own, I have found the greatest deal for you, just click on the image to your left. It’s the best price around, trust me. It is good quality Tea, and worth it.

 

For people with high blood pressure, a large consumption of caffeine is simply not healthy at all. As we know, Coffee has the strongest, and highest amounts of caffeine levels in it among all other caffeinated beverages, including soda. In addition, there are many great tasting teas without any caffeine at all. Well, for those of us who need a little bit of a pick me up in the mornings, a bit of a caffeine can do the trick. Which is why I have chosen Black tea to be my sole choice of drink in the morning. While it is a tea with the most caffeine among it’s kind, It has a significant lower amount of caffeine then a cup of coffee. The darkest, and strongest brew of coffee has almost double the amount of a good cuppa.

Drinking lots of coffee will leave you crashing hard later, while tea will give you a nice boost without the groggy caffeine crash afterwards. Well, enough with all this, I’m sure most of you reading this right now are getting quite bored with my talks of tea aren’t you? I’m not entirely finished yet, but I will take a moment to explain.

Today, I would like to teach y’all how to make a classic, and proper cuppa British Tea. Which not even all, most, or possibly any British people even drink, and know how to make, or even care about it anymore, but I do. In the process of this, I would also like to help you learn how a good cuppa, and a good relationship with Christ, can go hand in hand. Please, for a moment do just bear with me. Furthermore, you see my friends, the term ‘Steep’ means to ‘soak’  a kind of something (most likely tea leaves) in hot water. The longer it steeps, the stronger it will soon become.

Let’s start with step one of making a proper cuppa British Tea. (Taught to me from a Youtube Video I found by a British Tea-Making Master himself)

Step 1:

Fill the Kettle with water, (YES an ACTUAL Kettle) not some sort of modern age coffee pot hot water heater/ boiler metal/plastic machine thing. Why use a Kettle instead of something else? Something else like one of those little hot water heaters on the side of your coffee pot? Not because it’s wrong. No, It’s OK to do that, I’ve done it, but the results are not the same as they are when you boil the water yourself until the little tea pot screams like a wild bob-cat in the wilderness. Whichever one seems more appealing to you, it’s your choice. When the tea isn’t as strong or bold, and It appears to be weaker, I believe it’s because those little water heaters do not get the water as hot as your stove top burner can. I’ve never used one of those electric kettle’s, but I know that many real live British people have, and it seems to work fine. Me, I’ll just use what I have.

How can this relate you to Christ in anyway? Through studying God’s word, a good cuppa, and a good bible verse should go hand in hand. Nowadays, you see, too many churches have become too modernized.This is coming from someone who should embrace the modernism!. Everyone wants an easier, and faster way to do things. As a result, with easy, and with fast you end up with weak, and feeble Spiritual influence. It takes time to become good, and strong in God. As it takes time with a good cuppa, as anything good takes time. Back to the tea, if you are making a pot of tea for 6 people, then you want to have 6 ounces of water per person which would be a little over 36 ounces of water.

Set that to boil.

Note: *For those of you who want your tea to be extra ‘British-y’ OR to stay hot longer while it’s setting all by it’s lonesome in the pot. First, just boil a kettle of water, then pour it into the teapot covering it, and let it set a few minutes while you start your measured amount of water to boil, and then pour out that water, and place the lid back on.*

Step 2:

Once the water has boiled, either place your tea leaves into the pot or your tea bags. Then, you want to have one teaspoon of tea leaves per person, and one teaspoon for the pot to make it stronger to your taste. Once your tea leaves/bags are properly placed, that is when you will pour the hot water OVER them evenly. Then, cover it with the lid, and let it steep for at least 5 minutes exactly, not a second more, or a second less. This step is crucial to achieve the perfect, and utmost proper cuppa. The reason being is this, as we learned earlier in this post, the longer the tea steeps/soaks in the hot water, the stronger and bolder it will get.

So, it is the same with us, and Christ! How, you ask? The longer we steep/soak (STUDY) In His Word, the stronger, and bolder for Christ we will become! It is true! The more we root ourselves in His Word, the more likely we are to stand strongly, and boldly for His truth. Yet, at the same time, we cannot allow ourselves to steep/soak/study too long. Yes, It can be too much sometimes, and even the Bible can be a bad thing. Please, don’t get it twisted. Moreover, the reason for timing your tea’s steeping process is so crucial to the tea-making process.

If the tea steeps for a minute longer then it is supposed to, it will likely become too bitter for your tasting. There is a great difference in being strong, bold, and bitter. Strong, it’s good, it is what you look for in a good British cuppa. Bold is also good, but bitter is not. Bitter is not strength, bitter is not bold, and it can go the other way as well. Bold isn’t bitter, and strength is not bitter either. Sometimes many people will study themselves out of God’s truth, completely ignoring His truths, and convincing themselves that they don’t even matter anymore.

Then there are those who study to the point that they think they know it all, and one could not ever know it all. Therein lies your reasons why studying too much can often be a bad thing. As long as you study with a humble heart, you can get as much of His Word as you like without ever going down these dark paths. That’s just the thing though, to read His Word, one must read it with an open, and humbled heart. Otherwise, you can also become downright haughty, and bitter to all the world around. You’ll be consumed with wanting to save the world, and in your mind you may think that your reasoning’s are right, but in your heart you will have forgotten the most important thing of all, LOVE.

Truth – Love – Boldness

It’s a phrase that I’ve been preaching constantly. You can be a Bold and Strong Christian for Christ without ever losing one ounce of LOVE or Truth. The Modern day churches are so consumed with the concept of  ‘love, love, love’ these days. And not without entire biblical ground. But missing parts of the bible nevertheless. Love is a huge and sole part of the bible and it is the foundation of Grace and everything we hold dear and primarily what Christ stands for. But not entirely.

If there is Love without condemnation of sin, then there is no love at all. Christ spoke boldly and he did so in love. In the scripture that many modern day believers like to quote where he said he did not come to condemn the world but to save it, he goes on to say that the world is already condemned if it does not believe in him and to believe in him is to turn away from your sins and commit yourself to him.

Therefore, one can have a strong, bold tasting cuppa, without having that bitter aftertaste. It just takes time, patience and a little bit of humbling of yourselves to take a slower, harder path. Because the easy way, isn’t necessarily the best way. Nor the fast way, or the most accepted way.

Finally, we find ourselves at the final step.

Step 3:

Once your tea has steeped for the proper time, remove your teabags, or if you chose to use loose tea leaves, then use a strainer to pour your cuppa, but not so fast, there is still a few more things to be done. If you like cream in your tea (which for a perfect cuppa is desired, but not required) you will want to take this moment to put a small amount of creamer into your cup.

That’s right! Put the cream (in) your cup BEFORE you pour the tea. The reason for this being is many, but the most believable is this, It is said that back in the day, common-folk who did not have much money couldn’t afford sturdy cups. The fragile cups would break, and crack when the hot liquid would be poured into it, so to keep this from happening they added creamer to the cup beforehand. Whatever the reason, all these seemingly ‘silly’ tea-making steps are what truly helps you to achieve the utmost proper cuppa.

Finally, sit down, and enjoy your nice hot cuppa with some lumps of sugar, or sugar cubes, or even a natural sugar free sweetener. With a friend, or by yourself early in the morning, or late in the evening to warm you up, have a hot cuppa of tea. As a result, the hot cuppa of tea will settle you down, or cheer you up all while digesting one of your favorite biblical passages.

In Conclusion:

Coffee Or Tea? (Just for the sake of today’s blog post, not for the rest of your life. I, myself still enjoy a nice hot cup of dark roasted coffee). As an experiment for this bog post, tell me in the comment section. Which will you go have yourself right now? Coffee, or Tea? It’s just fine, and dandy if you choose coffee over tea, that is your choice. I’d still like to know, and along with it, I would like to know why. My reasoning of writing this post was not to persuade you into drinking black tea over coffee for the rest of your lives, I could never hope to do that in my wildest dreams.

My true purposes for writing this blog was to simply explain the importance of how a strong relationship with Christ is like a good cuppa tea. Christ said He would prefer that we be hot, or we be cold. I enjoy iced cold sweet tea like any other southerner, and I most definitely enjoy a nice hot cuppa black tea. When my tea is lukewarm, it’s very distasteful, and it causes me to spew it out. Just as Christ will spew us out as it is written in the book of Revelation 3:16, So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.
. Make your stand with God, be on fire for Christ, be strong, bold, and robust in His truths. You can do so without having one ounce of bitterness in you. Because, it’s who we are called to be. My family, and I by many of our relatives, including my mom have been called us bitter for the stands we take on God’s truths.  Those who truly know us best, truly know me best, they know better.

With my all the pain my Mother has chosen to cause me throughout my life, and even with all the hatred my family, and I have received from our relatives, I, myself have chosen to be better, not bitter. Furthermore, nothing can or ever will break me. I will only continue to grow stronger in Christ,so when the fire comes, I’ll be ready. As I always am, as we all should let ourselves be, because those who come to harm us wish to see us destroyed, and wish to see us turned into something utterly disgusting, and pitiful, damaged by the flames.

However, we will use the flames to our advantage, we will come out better, stronger, and more praising of God then ever. Why? Because, we will come through, and how can we not praise God for bringing us through? People ask me why I believe like I do. The answer is very simple, I have seen what faith does, and to think what I’ve seen is just a small taste. It is a small fraction of how big, and mighty our God is. That should excite us all.

Until next time my good friends, God bless y’all.
