Happy New Year! 2015

WOW, 2015 already, it just amazes me!

Doesn’t it you? Time, time is something that is here, yet it isn’t, one minute something is one way and the next minute things are completely different.

It always amazes me how time changes things, the way it shapes people’s lives, how it pushes us to move on, because the reality is when one life ends, life itself keeps on going.

I have seen many things happen this past year of 2014 starting early on in February when my grandpa had his first heart attack of the year, to May 17th the day my mom announced she was taking back the man my grandparents worked so hard to help her get away from.

To meeting my friends across the seas, In the U.K. and Australia from across the states to Wisconsin, California, Indiana, and the list could probably go on, even in Canada, so many people that I was able to meet and become friends with through the internet this year that certainly has made a good impact in my life as they are all remarkable and unique.

In October I met (the now new Governor of Texas) AG Greg Abbott who was out campaigning  for Governor at the time at a meet and greet in Tyler Texas! That’s not all, I also was able to meet the one and only Chuck Norris! Now, Chuck Norris is someone that I have always admired since I was a little kid, being able to meet him in person was absolutely amazing.

Yes, looking back I now realize that there have been both good and bad events of chaos in this year especially when you get down to the nitty gritty, but isn’t that the way all years are? Yet you don’t necessarily ever know what a year may bring, you can never in a million years guess that out of heartache God will bring bliss and outright miracles into your life.

Miracles:

Yes, I said MIRACLES, I am a strong believer in “Miracles” because I have seen many of them placed upon mine and my family life throughout the years, if it wasn’t for God’s grace his sheer blessings and outright miracles in our life I don’t know where we would be today, of course it did take much action on our part, we had to be faithful, we had to believe, we had to stand still and let God move.

And when you put your life into God’s hands, what better place is there for it to be? When you rest assured in the assurance of his sufficient grace, that is when you will be able to conquer all that is thrown your way, I am ready for 2015, I know it will be a year that will most likely be filled with much adventure, trials, heartache, joy, peace, love,  forgiveness, and miracles.

They are all around us, Miracles, that is, both big and small, we just have to be willing to look for them.

When we can do that, THAT is when we will begin to see the bigger picture, I am still a very strong believer that everything happens for a reason and for a purpose, a good reason and a good purpose, sometimes it may become hard to understand what that purpose and reason really is and as matter of fact, we may never actually know in this life time, but all we can do is trust God that in the end it’ll all work out.

Embrace 2015!

Welcome this year with open arms my friends, be not afraid, be bold, be courageous, share the truth in love with BOLDNESS. It CAN be done, I have seen it, I have done it.

Make this a year that counts for something, quit loving people into hell and actually love them with a real love, they may not always listen, they may not always agree with you but that’s fine it’s not about what they think it’s about what YOU do.

 

It is our individual choices the way WE live OUR lives that MAKE the difference.  – Glenn Beck

 

Again, I don’t know if that actually is a GB quote but that’s where I heard it from, and it’s true my friends, we are responsible and accountable to God for our own actions, we must share the gospel in truth with love and BOLDNESS.

My aim for this year is to do this myself and encourage others to do this as well, to share:

 TRUTH (IN) – LOVE (WITH) – BOLDNESS.

  As I have said many, many, MANY times it CAN be done, WE just have to DO it.

 HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Where Is God?

Dec
02

Interesting question right? Now, I’m sure many of you might of taken to that a different way.

Where-is-God-HDBut fear not, just listen…

Because I know for a fact that there are many out there who genuinely ask that question every single waken moment, with all the blood, the guts and absolute most wicked vile events taking place in our every day life. How can you NOT ask yourself that very simple question,

“WHERE IS GOD?”

For some believers it’s hard to understand that sometimes.

Now, just imagine how much harder it is for someone that DOESN’T believe, Eh. Catching on yet my friends? Imagine how much more difficult it is for someone who has never ever in their lives experienced God’s love, his grace, his compassion and his light. Imagine how much more impossible it is for them to see the good in today’s world. To see HIM in anything.

The fact of the matter is, it all goes back to “Free Will” man is just evil, wicked and vile in nature. Now, we can either choose to live a sinful life of hatred, murder, crime and filth.

OR – How About:

We choose hope, we can choose to live a life filled with God’s love, his hope, his kindness, his mercy, his never ending sufficient grace. Yes, we can indeed make the world a better place all on our own, I’ve said this many times. But we have simply got to stop worrying about what everyone around us IS doing and start to ask ourself “What are we NOT doing?”

What is it that I have left out in my every day life that could better this world? What is it that I could do today to make someones life a bit less stressful? Could I give them some money? Buy them some food to eat? Give them a nice warm coat this winter? Put them up in an apartment to help them get back on their feet? Give them a family for the holidays? What if I don’t have money though, then what can I possibly do? Can I do anything at all then?

The answer my brothers and sisters is YES, YES WE CAN!

We can smile, we can offer a listening ear, a shoulder for them to cry on, a heart to give them love, a message of hope from their maker above.

A simple “Hello, how are you?” will do just fine. It’s not about the quantity of who we help that matters, it’s about the “quality” of our help to them that matters. It doesn’t always come in gold, green, silver or fancy cars and millions of dollars.

Sometimes the greatest gifts and the smallest acts of kindness can mean so much more to someone than any of those things, all it takes is US reaching out to a dying destitute world that is asking “WHERE IS GOD?”

So, I guess the answer to that question would be this, my friends…

God is right there within you, If you are a Christian today, asking yourself where God is in all this mess, just look in the mirror,  he’s supposed to be dwelling within YOU. YOU are his hands and feet, YOU are the one who can make a difference if YOU just will. That’s where God is, he’s inside of YOU and me, and the rest of those that follow him.

To those who don’t believe in God and for an unfortunate reason don’t see God in his proclaimed followers, do me a favor. Please, KEEP looking. SEEK and you WILL find him.

He’s right there my beloved friend, he’s reaching out to you in more ways then one but because you are so resistant to him you are purposely blinding yourself from him and he wants you to see him, but you choose not to look for him.

Do please choose today to start looking again, if you’ve somehow stumbled upon this blog and my website, I hope that you can see God in me and the words I choose to share.

 

For God So Loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever BELIEVETH In him should NOT perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE. – John 3:16

 

That scripture stands true for you today my friend, he’s reaching out to you, don’t give up, it’s worth it; just keep trying.  God loves you my dear friend, and if you need to contact me personally, you can do so by clicking HERE.

May God be with you this moment, wherever you are. He loves you.

Until next time…

SHALOM –
