Do you worry about life?

I wrote this in 2005.  This was a time when i was just starting to get back into a relationship with the lord.  I have always known him.  But just like any other person who has walked on the face of the earh, as I got older, I prayed and talked to him less and less.  In 2005, life started to be real.  I got married, started a family, bought a house, etc. etc.  Then something happened that made me a nervous wreck.  I couldnt eat, sleep, interact with anyone.  I was a shell of myself.  I then started to wrtie my feelings on paper.  It was soothing but still the sleepless nights came.  It was then I asked my wife (girlfriend at the time to go to church with me).  At church, I never felt so alive.  How could i be so dumb and not allow myself these feelings for so long!!!

Sometime after thatr visit, I wrote this on my journal.  I don’t remember exactly what i was feeling at the moment, but reading it still has a comforting effect on my soul.  I do remember writing this after meditating on what God would be saying to me if we were face to face.

 

Please son, do not worry in life.

Always trust me, even though I am not in sight.

Problems & troubles continue to arise,

temptations & sin comes always as a surprise.

Remember that life is not always easy,

My son Jesus is the perfect example.

They laughed, hurt, & lied to him;

Yet, his love was endless and still.

He died on the cross for all of Man’s sins.

When the devil attacks you;

He will come at you from different angles.

Just remember to trust me;

And soon you’ll be in greener pastures.

I will never leave your side.

You are my son.

Surely a father always watches his son.

So tell me all your worries & worry no more.

I know its not perfect.  But it did its job in showing me God’s love that day.  It shows me God’s love even now.  I pray that it will help out somebody out there as well.

 

In Jesus Name,

AMEN

Christians know the truth, yet do not follow

As Christians, we know where our ultimate destination is…HEAVEN.   We believe that by accepting Jesus Christ as our lord, song of the living God, and through him our sins are forgiven.  HEAVEN IS OURS!!!

 

My question is..If we know this, why do we still love living an earthly life? We worry about making our life fomfortable here, yet neglet our life to come.  I do that everyday.   I worry about earthly problems so much.  My priorities are not in order.  I am working to hard for my earthly life and not hard enough on my heavenly life.  ARE YOU DOING THE SAME THING?

 

Do not store up for yourselves treasure on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where theives break in and steal.  But store for yourselves in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, ahd where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will follow

Matthew 6: 19-21

 

In Jesus we are all cleansed,

AMEN

This moment of clarity.

Thank you father for granting me a moment of clarity.  Tough I do not deserve anything I have, you have blessed me 100 times more than i truly deserve.  I am humble and ashamed. I lie, cheat, steal, break your commandments on an everyday basis, YET YOU ARE STILL THERE.  How great is your love that you would tolerate my actions!!!  My moment of clarity is that i now fully understand what you expect from me.  I have taken from you , without  giving back.  I have tremendous gifts and abilities, yet i do not use it to glorigy your name.

2011 is the year I glorify your name. This is going to be an amazing journey.  Through God anything is possible.  What surprises will be awaiting me on this journey.  I ask that you pray for me.  Pray that i may do my share in bring people to Jesus

 

In his name I live,

 

AMEN

Spiritual Warefare

I have experienced spiritual warfare first hand. Last week, was probably the most depressing week that I have experienced. I couldn’t sleep, eat, concentrate; I simply couldn’t function. When I would pray, I felt nothing.

It was only when I stopped focusing on the negative and started focusing on all that I AM BLESSED with was I able to snap out of it. When I realized the need to recommit my life to the lord, the floodgates opened.

I thank rich Dewees for talking with me today. It feels great to be back in line with Jesus.
Looking forward to getting off the “sidelines” and getting back into the game of doing the Lords will.
