A strange day takes a Holy turn!

March 16, 2015

I had absolutely NO intention of writing this. NONE at all. I lay down because of the weakness of my back, and I needed to put heat on my back because the pain is overwhelming. I was feeling terrible and thought about the meaning of hope. With all sincerity, I put the laptop on my lap, and the words below just came tumbling out of my head. No forethought, no thought at all of what to write in this post….except to write what is posted below: Verbatim.  I haven’t even re-read what I wrote – 100% honestly!  I will later….
——————————————–

No wonder we cannot understand why God allows terrible things to happen. It’s all a dream. From a perspective that assumes I have an inkling of really KNOWING all about God, I think I get it.

We are God’s creations, but in order for God to understand the human being, mind, body and soul, He sent His son to see if we are worth all the trouble. Jesus knows a great many of us are, and just needed a teacher to show the Way.

Jesus knows. He understands everything is REAL to us. He knows that pain and torture are real to us. He knows that the suffering of man is almost unbearable – enough to ask God Himself NOT to follow through with the plan. He was also afraid and did not want to face the torture man can inflict upon another. He saw the pain the death of others caused those who truly loved each other.  He saw the questioning of God’s existence when a child was lost…

He had an edge. He could have used his power, as the ONLY begotten Son of God, to perform a miracle and not sacrifice Himself. But He also understood the power of CHOICE that man has within himself.

He chose to take on “the world” and all the “sins of man” to become the ultimate mentor and advocate for God Himself. He died so that when our earthly death comes to take us, we are not lost forever into oblivion. He chose to be our Shepherd and guide. He was and is, the Way, the Truth and the Life.

He took upon Himself, within His mind and body, ALL of our mistakes, and the evil behavior of many of us. He carried the burden to His death….and Resurrection.

Here is an absolute post script. I didn’t remember this even until I had written the post, and then the preface. It just came to me. One of those epiphany moments. I had gotten out of bed this morning (and I confess – I have been on a spiritual low for a while) – and I got on bended knees next to the bed. That’s no easy trick for me since my back surgeries. I simply asked that the Holy Spirit be activated and fill me.

I feel at peace right now, and I am breathing easier. Sweet!  I also just read the post, and it is exactly what I do believe but more in terms the common man (myself included) can comprehend.  Sometimes the Bible is a tad difficult and confusing.

Just a quick post.  Was reading my favorite book this morning and came across these passages.  I’ve read them before but it’s always great to remember what the “Manual for Life” says. That’s what I call the Bible, because over all the years I’ve been studying it, without fail, help in how to live our lives optimally comes to fruition. 

There isn’t anything going on today that isn’t covered in this book.  It is amazing.  I am not a college graduate, just someone that has had the good fortune to find out how profitable the Bible can be to YOU in creating a wonderful life and great peace for you.  It’s done it for me.

Even if your Spiritual beliefs are vastly different than mine, or you are someone who does not believe in God, this book is a plethora of knowledge.  Vastly different in the lives they were living, and the years lived, the Bible writers are simply delivering a Divine message to us all.  How cool is that!

So enjoy, and God bless you and your loved ones……If you think you don’t have any loved ones – you do; God and this little blogger, who really cares!

“He gives power to the tired and worn out, and strength to the weak.  Even the youths shall be exhausted and the young men will all give up.  BUT THEY THAT WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH.  THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH WINGS LIKE EAGLES; THEY SHALL RUN AND NOT BE WEAR; THEY SHALL WALK AND NOT FAINT.”

                           Isaiah 40:29-31
