This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalms 118:24 (KJV)

God Bless The Police

I do not intend for today’s post to be as long as usual, however I never intend for them to be that long so we will just have to see how it goes, the title I’ve chosen is chosen from the recent turmoil in U.S. Cities such as, Ferguson, and Baltimore, where hate towards those who put their life on the line for our protection has been rising more rapidly than I would like to admit, my friends.

police_tape_ss_img_3I remember as a kid that I would always be very loving and respecting of all police officers, whether they were a city cop, deputy, state trooper or whatever, I had great respect for them because I knew at such a young age and understood what type of job it is that they had. Their job is to die defending the law, criminals may die from time to time and in many incidents it is a sad sight to see, however it is a great difference in dying while defending the law and dying while breaking it, I’m here today to tell you that cops lives matter very much. Everyone wants them to go away but no matter how horrible we may treat them at times and no matter how tough the job can get, they keep right on protecting and serving, that is the job.

Is this to say that there are NO bad cops out there? No, absolutely not, that is not what I am saying. However we must remember that there are bad apples on every tree, it’s just a fact of life, you can live in the sweetest universe you can think of and i guarantee you will have some type of villain out there trying to ruin everything, like look at the old “My Little Pony” cartoon, even those folks in a land of puff and fluff had to face their enemies. We know that there will be bad cops, I have seen them myself, but that still does not change my opinion about police officers, nor does it take away my respect, it angers me to see bad cops making a bad impression on all the good cops just as it angers me seeing bad Christians making bad impressions on those who really put their hand to the plow without looking back.

Blessed Are The Peace Makers –

Jesus tells us in the Bible that the peacemakers are blessed, and that is true, and police officer are peacemakers, that is their main job in law enforcement. To help keep the peace, to maintain all situations so things do not escalate out of control and to keep us all from being seriously hurt.

Scripture:

 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Matthew 5:9 KJV

A poem I have written in honor of all the brave men and women that serve us every day and that deserve our respect.

He’s a young man, she’s a young girl, she’s a sister, he’s a brother, he’s a father, she’s a mother, they’ve got sons and daughters and their someone’s son and someone’s daughter too.

Out the door they go with a badge pinned on their chest, keeping their head up high putting their own life on the line. They do it every day and we don’t even bother to say thanks, most of the time.

To the mother, to the brother, to the daughter and to the father, to the son and the sister, to the families and to the giver, to the one who puts their own life on the line, you’re one of a kind.

What you do it ain’t easy, you knew that from the start, you’re judged on every little move you make and there’s so many that may hate but I hope you know that no matter what, we thank you, we thank you for your service, we thank you for your courage, we thank you for protecting us when no one else was. We thank you for keeping the peace and if I could real quick please, God bless the police.

Now it may seem like you are unappreciated, and it may feel like you’re not wanted, and maybe in some cases that’s true, but please don’t let that get to you, don’t lose your care and your love, because you are still needed and what a few folks say don’t count. So please dear police, don’t leave us now.

God bless you.

No conclusion for today’s post, that is all. Thank you for reading and I hope that it has blessed you in some special way, always keep in mind that when in doubt, do not pout, God will pull you out somehow. Until next time…

Hate – Fluff & The Bible

May
26

Life is like a chocolate cream filled Donut, if you cut it open in half, it can then be divided into two sides. Each side being what man considers to be right and wrong. However, it appears that there is still the cream to be dealt with. What is the cream? The cream is the truth, and the truth will forever abide.

IMG_3609

The Bible can be used for many things, comfort, peace, joy, relief. Something to help you cope with life or something to help you merely get by when things aren’t going the way you planned. You can use it to beat people down, or use it to raise them up. It can be used to fool people and it can be used to hurt people. Sometimes that hurt can be intentional, other times it isn’t completely intentional or it may not even be intentional at all. The Bible can make people cry tears of pain or laugh, laughs of mockery. Or it can make them cry tears of joy and sorrow for Christ’s death and laugh laughs of bubbling joy that only comes from the Spirit of God.

The Bible can be dangerous to the soul when interpreted the wrong way or it can be wondrous to the soul when spoken in it’s full truth. It can either be used to hate everything and everyone to hell, or love everything and everyone to hell. Or it can be used to love people with true love, with truth and boldness for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Ultimately, the choice is left up entirely to us. Whether we decide to make the right one is another story. Let us not forget, the side of truth will always reign most high above all else. So let us stand for truth, let us teach truth and let us defend TRUTH.

There Is An Equal Balance –

I am constantly telling everyone I know that there IS an equal balance to the scriptures. You see, most Christian’s today either want to be so strict that they almost choke themselves off from God and others with rules, or they are so filled with a wishy washy lovey dubby love that they fall into the trap of using ‘grace’ as an excuse to sin. And neither of those are good ways to lead a walk with God, The Almighty. I see so much HATE today, whether it’s angry Christian’s or angry gay’s or angry atheists it does not make no difference. Hate is hate. If the Christian’s hold up a sign saying that “God Hates Gay People” then the atheists and gays are most likely to retaliate with an even bigger sign saying that “God Hate’s Signs” or “F*** this guy.”

But don’t get me wrong, the tables can turn and the events can go both ways. Gays and atheists can hold up their signs of hate to Christian’s and Christian’s have been known to retaliate right back in the same hateful ways, which in turn continues to feed into a never ending cycle of ‘fueling fire with fire.’ When will it end? Is it at all possible that we could BOTH just once stop trying to solve our problems with HATE and instead in turn try and actually LISTEN to one another? Will we agree? Probably not, but what is the point of hating? Where is that getting us? But let us not confuse HATE with TRUTH or strong held beliefs.

The Bible Speaks Truth –

As a Christian, I believe every single word of the bible. I will admit that there are many things I have yet to understand and many more things that I may never understand in this life, however. That is just fine. You know why? Not once in the scripture did Christ tell me that I MUST understand everything, rather he said this.

Scripture Verse:

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. – Mark 16:31 KJV

(I got that from one of Rev. Billy Graham’s old sermons.) A very smart and anointed man he is, and his son is stepping into his line of work just fine. Many times he is criticized for spewing ‘hate’ when in reality all he is doing is professing his faith, now what exactly is it any good to the world for a ‘Christian’ to not believe what he says he believes? Or even better, for a ‘Christian’ not to actually go out and ‘PRACTICE’ what he preaches. I mean, isn’t this the cause of us getting so harshly judged for by the left, is us not being ‘Christian’ enough? Yet, for whatever reason. When we actually DO show our faith, the liberal media and angry atheist’s just go into a wild frenzy making accusations of us ‘spewing hate’.

Scripture Verse:

Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? – Galatians 4:16 KJV

Well, I guess I am. And I would much rather be the enemy of MAN than be the enemy of an all powerful, all knowing and all seeing Almighty God. There are those among us in the church world today that do not believe we should call out sin in the church or in the world when we see it. They tell us that is not biblical, it’s judgmental. “You can’t judge other people’s convictions. We have ALL sinned and all have fallen short.” Yes, yes we have. However, we are meant to be free now. I have no problem with people falling in their walk with Christ ‘occasionally’ (meaning rarely) we are all prone to that, it is our human nature. However, our human nature is NO excuse to continue on in a willful sin. Just as Grace is no excuse either.

In Conclusion:

The lesson to be learned is this, be very wise in how you use your bible. Because there is only one right way to use it, but many wrong ways. And it can be so easy to use his word as an excuse and even easier to use it to hurt people. Using it as an excuse to sin is just as bad or worse than those who use it to torment people and crucify others and judge them in an unrighteous fashion. What may seem right can many times be wrong and what may seem wrong can be wrong.

However, there is indeed an equal balance to the scripture. We must not love or beat others to hell, and we cannot speak so softly that our words are misunderstood or so loudly that we scare everyone away. Rather we need to present his word and his truth with utmost sincerity, utmost love and utmost dedication to the cause of holiness and truth. Because even though the bible can be used for many things, it’s one true purpose is to guide people, to teach people.

To lead them to the truth of salvation and holiness, to lead them to God. Christ. I hope you enjoyed today’s blog post and until next time let me wish you a blessed day.

I Choose LOVE

May
15

Over the years I have been told that I have much reason to be a bitter, angry, no good for nothing out of control, wildly insane person that hates life and that hates everything and everyone in life but I have decided that I will not let my trials and hardships break me, nor will I ever let them shake me, they can and will not bend me nor will they crush me, however I will allow them to make me everything that I need to be and I will choose something better than hate.

blue-abstract-background-3439-hd-wallpapersI will choose love, even though there are times that socking someones brains out feels just right for the job I have to remind myself that in this life I have not made it this far to beat the living daylights out of a person that may very well deserve, no matter what comes my way I am determined to react in love and it may seem from time to time that I am bitter or angry. To those who have hurt me and caused me pain that is, and that’s absolutely fine but it’s also about as false as a counterfeit 100 dollar bill, because I love everyone and everything, I have a great love in my heart for those that are lost, for my friends, for those that pass away that I don’t even know, I have a great love and sorrow for them.

And If it seems that I’m bitter or angry in anyway then let me clarify what it is that I am actually feeling deep inside, I am feeling hurt, crushed, as if someone took me and tore me apart limb from limb, devastated, broken to pieces and outright shattered by some of the events that have gone on in the years gone by. I am terribly upset that something like this could ever happen again after I so willingly gave so much of my trust back again, however, no matter how bad it gets, I will let the devil know this, I REFUSE to get angry, I REFUSE to hate, I REFUSE to be consumed by bitterness and I REFUSE to let it break me, it will make me.

Be Better Not Bitter –

It’s not easy, it’s hard actually. But I will continue to do what I have always done, emotionally I will continue to make the best of it and I will continue to be the better person instead of the ‘bitter’ person, because it’s easy to be bitter, anyone can be filled with hate and anger, but it’s hard to be kind and loving even if you feel as though you can’t possibly be kind to one more person – it’s hard. Yet so right, nothing right ever comes easy, the good things are always gonna be a little bit harder or even much harder, because the good path is that much harder to come by.

People wonder why it’s so hard to be good, why life is a living hell for the Christian, one way I like to look at that is because it’s a lot harder to find an honest person then it is to find a lying no good for nothing scumbag, that liar is no threat to the enemy, but an honest Christian with a bright light for Christ. You my friend, you’re a threat. As long as you’re telling the truth and worshiping him with everything in you, fully committed to his word, his truth and his way, for as long as you do this you will constantly face attacks from the enemy, you’ll be unhappy from time to time, miserable even, you might even grow some hate in your spirit. Hate for your job, hate for your life in general, maybe even hate for people around you, but be not overcome with evil – overcome evil with good my dear brethren.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against powers, against principalities, against spiritual wickedness in high places, so don’t hate the person in your life that is causing you pain and turmoil. Don’t even hate your job, don’t even hate the enemy, don’t let yourself be filled with hate in any kind of way at all, instead choose to be better, choose love.

In Conclusion:

Love is far more powerful than hate or anger ever could be, love can bring down hate, love can destroy the enemy in mere seconds, as matter of fact that is exactly what ‘LOVE’ did on the cross when Jesus shed his blood for us, love took us away from satan, we were hell bound, we were nearly there when out of nowhere the most miraculous event in all of history occurs. God himself in human form DIES for our sins so that we might be saved and so that we might be forgiven if we would only accept him as our Lord and savior, if we would only believe upon him, if we would only believe that he loved us so much that he was willing to die for us in such a horrific way.

If only.. Choose love today my friends, no matter how heartbroken or hurt it is that you may be and no matter how angry you are starting to feel about how it is that someone could harm you so badly, especially someone you loved dearly. No matter how bad the pain, choose to love, because choosing to love will help you move on quicker, it won’t be easy, but it won’t be impossible. Thanks for joining me today and I hope that you leave greatly encouraged in all your spirit, and I hope you be uplifted as well.

Until next time…

Imagine…

Mar
24

I’d like to share with you today, the last audio recording of mine for quite awhile.

imagine

I titled this piece “Imagine A World” because if you listen to the background music, which comes from “The Secession” on youtube; I was inspired just by listening to this song called “Move Forth” it’s amazing. I love listening to music, I really love everything that music has to offer us and if I do say so myself well, sometimes I can get a bit carried away.

However, as I was watching youtube one night thinking as always, I ran across this song and while It’s not the first time I’ve listened to this group, I have to say that this time I was truly consumed with inspiration, I immediately started writing the words that I heard as I was listening and then I went on to make an audio recording of it, which was almost impossible trying to get done because of the limited space on the computer (which is now full.)

I was struggling but eventually I got it done, and I’m pretty proud at how it turned out, and when I get the first chance I can I am going to make a video along with it and launch a campaign  called –

Be A Difference – See A Difference:

Because these are some of the most important things that I can think of that we as a society can do to make our world a better place, because if we don’t do these things then we will sadly continue to rush down this hill of hate, anger, angst, racism, violence, discrimination and cruelty.

I’m sure no one wants that, I sure don’t. But sadly I see it everywhere, Hate – I see it in the schoolrooms of our children’s schools, I see it in the big shot businesses of our society, it is easily spotted in the dark shadows of our media, our politics, our ‘religions’ in Christianity.

It can be spotted from all corners of this earth, with old hatred rising in the Middle East against the Jewish people, with what is happening in Ferguson, it seems to me that no one is really looking around for a solution. It seems to me that everyone is too busy blaming each other totally completely ignoring all facts and all logic, making it about race, oh the liberals have been doing that for years, Al Sharpton and others spew their hate against the Whites and I don’t deny there are White people doing the same against blacks.

But fire with fire will only cause more fire my friends, we have to fight this thing with real love, real truth, real equality, not a wishy washy love – not a half truth, not a liberal equality, but to get down to the core of this we need to reach deep within ourselves and start looking beyond race, color and sex.

Be Better:

It is incredibly painful to me how the hate is rising in our country from all sides against all people, of all types in all faiths, races, political agendas and society over all is deteriorating something fierce. It’s deeply disturbing, It angers me that people do what they do, people’s stupidity angers me, peoples lack of facts, ignorance and blindness to the truth it all angers every last fiber of my being. I might even rant and rave, but we have got to quit pouring gasoline on fire that will indeed create more fire.

We’ve got to be better, we’ve got to look at each other as people. #LIFEMATTERS ALL Life matters because if it doesn’t then what type of society are we? I don’t deny Racism, when I notice it or sense it I get upset, but everyone plays the race card, discrimination and it’s ruled out any possibility of real racism and it’s affected those people, it’s only stirred up more hate sadly, and things are not as racist as the left keeps trying to make them out to be.

If you’re somebody that really wants to see a difference, then be a difference.

Because once we start doing that, that my friends, that is when we will truly SEE a difference.

Imagine A World:

Imagine a world where anything is possible, where dreams always come true hearts never break, tears are never shed, lies are never told, pain isn’t a reality. Imagine a world filled with pure bliss, joy, love, peace, kindness, friendship, togetherness, laughter.

No cancer, no sickness or disease at all.

Imagine a world without hate a world without crime a world without war a world without hunger.

Imagine the best world your mind can possibly imagine, now open your eyes and go out to make that world – your world.

Life is precious, make it count.
