Surely 10 more minutes can’t hurt?


“The universe is not short on wake up calls.
We’re just quick to hit the snooze button!”
~Brené Brown~

I was waiting for the alarm to go off. I had set it to go off at 6.45 am and then I had allowed myself to snooze… just another 10 minutes…

In my half sleep state I was slightly wondering when the next alarm was going to go off but I allowed the lull of the moment to keep me in bed and knowing the second alarm would surely go off when it was time…. The bed was warm, it was still dark enough, and it was cold outside. Perfect orders for staying in bed.

 

Finally I dragged myself into consciousness and looked at the clock… Hmmmm 7.26am. How did it get to that? Could it be that I didn’t hear the second alarm? Could it be that I slept through it? Either way I missed it and that meant not getting up for my morning walk.

 

It spoke to clearly to me how easy it is to miss the signs.Did you hear the first alarm? I heard it on this occasion but I dismissed it. After all I knew there’d be another. Surely 10 more minutes can’t hurt.

 

Are you like I was, waiting for the second alarm? Or like me did you miss it?

 

If you are waiting for an alarm that means you know it’s going to happen. No one has to convince you there will be one.

 

How long can you afford to wait? Have you missed the second alarm already and have lulled yourself into a false sense of security?

 

This is so true of all the situations in our lives? Can we afford to wait? But the signs are all there in regards to Jesus return. Of course it’s been said the signs have been signs for 100’s of years but the truth is bible prophecy has been fulfilled now right up to the time of his coming.

 

I understand it might sound totally mad to you! I get that! It sounds mad to me too. Maybe even if it sounded mad to you, you believe it but you’d rather be in denial. Even so that doesn’t change what you know.

 

And of course it’s much easier to believe this is wrong and there’s a new interpretation that has to be right. Let’s hope you have time to figure it out!

What the world can’t give, the world can’t take away…


 

It really makes me sad that it’s becoming harder to say how I feel about God and my Saviour Jesus and also what I believe. You raise your head you get shot at these days, questioned, interrogated almost. I’m finding that it’s not alright to question other ‘religion’ but it’s fine to tear mine down.

I could never be known as a bible basher, although I’m sure ALL those around me know exactly who I am and what I believe. Yes they may read what I write if they choose, (and if not then they are more than welcome to unfriended me rather than me being a nuisance to them), but unless they want to know more personally I won’t be shoving it down their throats.

I think I’m a good representation of Gods love because even if what people do or say or think is completely in opposition to what I believe or do, I truly love them, value their friendships and their company. I love all the people in my life.

Then on the other hand people can believe in other religions that call for all kinds of extremism but that’s not a problem to others is it??, ‘each to their own’ right??? But to love and follow Jesus is old school, conservative, closed and narrow-minded.

I am NOT into religion. I dislike religion. I dislike religious figures and leaders to some extent, and ‘the establishment’, who have, in their utter humanity given God a black name. They have dragged his Name in the mud. The one who sent His Son into this muddy earth for us.

I say, come to know God by what He did, by what He gave, by what He says and not by what PEOPLE do or say.

Did you know God loves everyone unconditionally? That doesn’t mean he agrees with how they live, people don’t like that bit, but if God is God then he can make rules for life, and if according to us He can’t, then that makes us God not him… but I don’t remember creating the universe???? Do you ?😉

He loves each person personally, uniquely, completely, more than they have ever known or could know love…

I’m so glad that my mum pursued her faith, way past religion, rules and regulations and met her Saviour and gave us the opportunity to know him too.

It’s fine for people who are intellectual to laugh me off, think I’m mad, wonder at the ridiculous things I believe, or think it’s all ridiculous. To continually try to find loopholes in everything around God and the bible, pull it all apart, even though I won’t pull their belief apart. But the joyous thing for me… is that NO ONE can take away my experience, the tangible things God has shown me, how he has revealed things into my life that NO ONE could have ever known and shown me his very very great love for ME, little me…. insignificant me in the grand scheme of things.

No one can argue any of that away for me, how he has changed me, changed my life, GIVEN me life, hope, peace, strength, supernaturally seen me through every trial in my life from the time I was a child…

There is so much more to this life than what we can see and touch. To live your life thinking that this is ‘it’ may be the easiest thing to do but in the end it’s the least rewarding.

‘Rewarding’ comes from giving to humanity, from loving, from building people up, from encouraging, from supporting, from generosity of heart, not from self-love, self-gratification, self-indulgence, caring for only you and your own. What a small world view you would have and receive.

The world is upside down but at the end of my life, were I to die and find there is nothing, which I do not for a second believe, I will have lived a life of love, of hope, of joy and satisfaction, I will have added to this world and not just taken my share.

There is such!!!! JOY in the lack of skepticism I can’t tell you!!!

Truth for Freedom


We are all sinners. Gods Word does describe all kind of sin. But we have all committed sin and still do.
We mustn’t take it personally if we have fallen in ANY area of sin… we just need to ask for forgiveness. I know what the bible says. There are some hard things to hear in there, but the world is turning upside down, what was black is now white what was white is now black… the thing is God is in the middle and He has NOT changed… Yes he is our judge, but he also sent his only Son to die to pay the price for ALL of OUR sins to make the way open because he is also LOVE ♥
There are some people whose focus is judging others. I don’t think that should be our focus but never the less truth is truth… And someone needs to speak truth as we are becoming scared to say what we believe in this society.
This is why Jesus came. To bring redemption from all our sin. To pay the price we couldn’t pay
If we have sinned we repent we ask Jesus to forgive us and heal us, then we no longer carry the sin as he has removed it as far as the east is from the west.
All kinds of things are wrong… or “sin”…
With all the FEEL GOOD messages of the world we can’t handle thinking we’ve done wrong but we have, that DOESN’T mean we ARE wrong, it means we have DONE wrong and that we are human, weak, frail. We need redemption. That’s why Jesus died.
There are enough things that we can focus on to divide us all. The devil loves that. We need to stay as close to God as possible. These things drive us away. Yes there are things that are wrong whether we like it or not though. My thought is what are the messages that I can share with people so that they recognize they need a Saviour.
