In the beginning there were the heavens and earth. All things living in a harmonistic atomsphere . Here comes man, greedy, filled with hate. Unappreciative . Full of destruction. God made this place in which we live acceptable and adaptable to all living things. What gives man the right to destroy? This same philosophy and practice by man has lead to the extinction of whole civilizations. We need to love and honor our place in which we live both physically and spiritually. God is grace and mercy.

As we go through each day , the canvas of life presents us with challenge and change. Some find it extremely difficult to get through. Others embrace except and muddle through. With faith. With knowing God . Life's challenges can be lessened.
I John 5:14
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

As we March through life, you can't help but notice the categories of people. You have plenty of judges, critics, and hypocrites. However, on occasion there are those sacred moments when you have friends and or family who are proven to be so very meaningful. And so very valuable . Life is what you make it. You can be humble, greatful and wise. Or you can live amongst the cruel and evil with a destiny uncertain. God gives us direction. It is up to us to follow it.

There are many who have no idea who and what God is. There are those who have no faith at all in any of Gods stories or wonderment. Sadly that is ok . But when the day comes when your earthly body turns to dust, and your spirit need be at rest. You will lose out on the end of life. Believing in God and knowing how we must go through Jesus Christ to gain access to the kingdom gives us a sense of peace. Knowing that are souls have a resting place. That our deaths are not in vain. We shall be judged in that day by God himself. Which begs the question, how do I conduct myself on earth to work towards that peace?

Many get praying to God wrong. You see God sees all. He wants us to recognize that. He wants us to acknowledge him. He wants us to have faith. Above all he wants us to be merciful and gracious for our blessings. We are to learn from the lessons in life. Ask for discernment, wisdom and understanding. Repent of our sins. And leave guilt and shame at the cross. So when we pray it's all about thankfulness.

There are times when our thoughts get the best of us. We retreat and succumb to doubt. Guilt. We tend to take on burdens bigger then we can handle. All the while forgetting who our father is. First of all Jesus suffered and died for all of our sins. Guilt and shame went with him as well. Secondly our God is a mighty God. We can leave all of our burdens with him. So when the enemy eases those thoughts in, simply reject them " devil get thee behind me, Jesus is my lord and savior" once that is done, have a one on one with God. Give your burdens to him. " cast your burdens on The Lord and he will sustain you"

Less can sometimes be better. Less talk, more action. Less oppression more fruitfulness. Less hurt and pain more happiness. Less decrease more increase. God is not a God of confusion. When he is working in your life, you will know it. And your faith will become strong and prevelant.

It does get difficult at times to continue life with all the rough edges. There are so many who are ill equip to understand the wiles of the enemy. The words of Jesus ring supreme " Ye have little faith". You see faith is the key. It is our faith that is always being challenged. We must remain vigilant. No matter the challenge. Keeping in mind that many before us have gone through insurmountable faith testing. And they passed.

There is nothing complicated , nor confusing when it comes to a one on one relationship with God. When you have it( a relationship with God) you know it. His grace and mercy stays ever present. Also the fiery darts are constant. One must stay in faith as hard as it is fighting the enemy, God will prevail.

It is said, that our lives are writen all over our faces. That the "good life" shows and keeps us alive longer. Which is the complete opposite when life is full of stress and strain. When faced with the evils and wiles of the world, our bodies take on the negative. Sickness, emotional disfunction. If we had the coping skills and methods in place we would not have such chronic illness. In the bible you can see story after story of the rough and hard times on the people of the era. You do also see how the spiritual conviction was turned from paganism to the belief in God. Imagine the slow following. Imagine the anger and killing behind changing belief systems. Much like our modern day society. There is only one God. He has many names but there is only one.

Life is as good as you make it. Nothing is easy. Many many things happen along the way, that may deter you from living comfortably. But when you have love unconditional in your daily life, things will not seem as difficult. Trust and believe in God. He will see you through.

There is nothing that makes us more vulnerable to life's ills then the safety, and security of our children. When those issues are at stake, the pain is seering. We are humbled beyond conviction. We feel helpless when we cannot help. Oh what a heartfelt pain. Our children are the fruit of our loins. We would all love that fruit to be sweet and ripe. However things go wrong. Imagine God with his children. How many times did he have to show tough love? How many times did they make him cry? How many times did he teach them lessons? He never gave up, but he suffered over and over. He finally sent Jesus. Who lived a mans life. God could feel and sense what mankind had to endure. He was tempted, tormented and eventually killed. This sacred event saved wretches like us.

It is very hard for some to understand who God is. Less alone what he is. And what he is capable of doing. Belief isn't very well excepted by quite a few. In fact evil and its root are prevalent in many, many areas. Despite all God is powerful. God is good. And for those who believe Gods light shines ever so bright.

The thing to remember or note here: we did not have to have that sixth sense built into our human make up. God could have left that part out, but he did not. Instinct, intuition, what ever you want to call it, has saved many a life. Yes, we should listen when God speaks.

Each one of us has a destiny that was planned long ago. Some of us have paths that are easy, some of us have a daily uphill battle. Some of us have been broken beyond repair. Some have bounced back from oblivion. As stated our steps have been ordered. Our destiny includes the acknowledgement of God. Having the wear withal to know that no matter what through Jesus we have an opportunity to save our retched souls.

Kings 17:12-14 But she said, "As the LORD your God lives, I have no bread, only a handful of flour in the bowl and a little oil in the jar; and behold, I am gathering a few sticks that I may go in and prepare for me and my son, that we may eat it and die." Then Elijah said to her, "Do not fear; go, do as you have said, but make me a little bread cake from it first and bring it out to me, and afterward you may make one for yourself and for your son. For thus says the LORD God of Israel, 'The bowl of flour shall not be exhausted, nor shall the jar of oil be empty, until the day that the LORD sends rain on the face of the earth.

It is seen everyday, weather phenomenon. Or someone walking away from twisted mangled wrecks unscathed. Or someone near death with an ailment, who recovers completely. Yes, a mighty force is behind the above scenarios. I chose to call that force God.

Humble, grateful. These adjectives describe the precise keys to being close to God all day long. How dare we wonder through life entitled. We are not. Nothing says we have to awaken the next day. Nothing! Jesus is the truth and the light. Simple as that.

In today's battles the enemy hits you from all sides. However, when the playing field is riddled with land mines, you have to step up your game. The trick is not to let your mind accept that you have lost the battle or the war. God is there. Review your field. Prepare your armor. Keep your faith. Don't take it personal and get back out there. You have faith. And that is bigger then anything else. God never said it would be easy.

It is truly amazing to find people who have no idea what a relationship with God is. Oh they fumble. They dabble, they follow the lead of someone or something that "seems"knowledgable in the right things to do. But the bottom line is, that you have to develope your very own relationship with God. You and only you can do that. No there isn't fanfare when you do. And no the divine angels don't come down . No pomp and circumstance takes place. It's a uniqueness to you. It's subtle. You will know it when you feel it.

Before there was GPS there were maps. Yes, physical printed maps. You either were good at using them or like many had a co-pilot that helped navigate you through the quagmire. But technology has rescued us from that tedious task. We now hear a voice that gives us precise direction. God works the same way. There is a voice that gives us precise direction. We just have to listen.

Jesus had a group of men and one woman that followed his teachings. You might categorize them as his apprentices. Their job was to watch. Stay in faith and eventually be teachers of men in Gods way. So many times did they question the task at hand, giving in to the smoke screen the devil always seemed to throw at them. This took place up until Jesus' death. However once alone after severely beating themselves up for losing faith at the final hour, they picked themselves up and went out into the world to do their jobs.

Romans 11: 18-20
…18do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you. 19You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in." 20Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear;…

It is not what one says that makes the biggest impression. It is what one does that bears witness. Walking with faith will show if you are a genuine child of God. Not a word has to be said. Gods work is never hidden. It shows.
Matthew 5:16. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
