The Reason We’re Obsessed With Animals And Not God.

Hey Guys 🙂

In the age of social media, we probably read more stories and see more pictures of animals than ever before.

Why is that?

I don’t know the exact answer but I do have my own theory.

Besides children, animals are the most innocent creatures on the planet. In a world that seems to be going to hell in a hand basket, there is not much left out there that is pure.

I feel that many of us cling to the pure innocence of animals (and children) as a way to cope with the world we live in today.

Animals are God’s creation. One we can see and hear. It’s tangible and since we are mere humans, we can’t help but see and hear to believe.

I for one am a huge animal lover. I fully admit that. When I see videos about dogs for example that have been abused and nursed back to health I cry. When I see pictures and videos of animals doing adorable things, I feel warm and fuzzy.

Animals have been known to provide healing for those of us suffering from illness in multiple forms.

Animals love unconditionally.

That is my theory in a nutshell and now I want to take a detour on the subject…

If we can extend that kind of love and adoration to animals, children and the like, why is it so many of us turn our backs to God? Why are so many of us on the fence or not even close to the fence at all regarding His presence?

God is the most pure, most divine, most loving. He is the Alpha and Omega. He is the healer. He loves us despite our sins. Animals are simply an extension of that in the physical form.

Everything we see around us – children, nature, animals. That is God’s doing! He knows the destiny of this earth. He understands more than anyone the suffering that the world endures now and that more is to come in the future. He has promised to deliver us from all of this.

We just have to believe.

So again, why do so many people turn their back with doubt and even spit at that notion?

Because we can’t see it. We can’t hear it but if you read the bible there are multiple accounts of  Jesus healing the literal blind and deaf through the power of God. They believed. They followed God’s instructions and they were healed and saved.

In fact, if you think God is not here in the physical form then in my opinion, you misunderstand that God is everywhere. You just have to open your heart. Stop thinking s assuming that God is a physical being. He is so much more than that. Quiet your mind and observe your surroundings. If you truly open your mind, heart and soul you will see God everyday.

God is the wind, the rain, the sun, the moon, the mountains, the ocean, the animals, the children…you have probably passed him on the street none the wiser.

He comes to us in all forms nudging us to acknowledge Him, to accept Him, to love Him as He does us…

Believe in Him.

We must trust God’s word and in an age where someone’s word doesn’t go far anymore, it’s understandable the doubts we may have that God is real and that He is coming back for us.

He is. ❤

So in closing, be careful when obsessing over God’s creation thinking it’s a separate entity and is in some way above God. Nothing on this earth is. Not even your own children for we here on earth are in fact His children. We are all created in His image and it’s time we start representing that more and more as the world grows dark.

Be the extension of God like the animals, nature and children. Embrace the purity, be the healer, the believer, the messenger.

Be obsessed with God in all that you do and you will see He is all around you always and forever. ❤

Letting Go Of “Daddy Issues”

Hey guys 🙂

I’m not exactly sure how I got to this topic but I think it’s one worth talking about.

The term “daddy issues” is usually directed towards women and their hot mess of past relationships…I should know, I would qualify as a women with said issues.

That being said, I don’t care for the term. It seems rather sexist in nature. A less than stellar father throws his daughter to the wolves and she has “daddy issues” yet it seems a man with the same type of father is extended some sympathy. Just my two cents.

The main point I want to make however is the fact that when the biological father dismisses his role it impacts the future of sons and daughters alike.

For example, my biological father was abusive towards my mother. Physically and emotionally. He was abusive in the same way towards me and my brothers. He cheated on my mother multiple times and ultimately his last cheating episode would be with my mother’s sister…yep…stay classy dad…

Oddly enough my father is still with my mother’s sister to this day and I can guarantee you she is being treated the same way my mother was…but hey she wanted him…she insisted on having him with no regard for anyone but herself…they deserve each other.

I have been home for a little over a year now and my father lives right here in this tiny town yet I have never crossed paths with him once…my brother had the “privilege”  of crossing paths with him at the mall one day…my father made brief eye contact and kept walking.

Despite this, I still wonder about my father. I feel that his current circumstances are a snowball of past ones.

My father had a very rough childhood. His father beat him, and when his mother ultimately left his father she would find herself  in a string of abusive relationships and would take my father along for the ride. No child should have to go through that.

Later in life, my father would be told he had what was then called manic depression. My father rejected this claim and never bothered to seek treatment. It’s unfortunate during that time, you still didn’t talk about things like mental illness.

I wonder what my father’s life would have been like if he had went ahead with treatment. At his core my father is not a bad person…he’s a lost one.

I have not spoken to or seen my father in nearly 13 years. I have a wonderful father figure in my life who I consider to be my father at this point. My mother managed to survive that whole ordeal and end up with a wonderful man. He’s wonderful to all of us and I have nothing but mad love for him ❤ It makes me happy to see my mother thrive after all she has been through. She deserves it and then some. ❤

That being said, I suppose I am somewhat traditional in nature. My father may have given up his title but he is still my father by blood. In between all the mess, my father and I did share some good times and I like to try and remember those little moments as opposed to all the negative ones.

I feel I managed to get some of his better traits. He is the type of man who will give you the clothes off his back. He used to have his own business repairing electronics and he was always good and fair to his customers. His people skills have always been through the roof and I like to think I inherited some of that.

My father is also incredibly smart…I like to think I got a little of that too.

He also introduced me to awesome music. Queen, CCR, Boston, Journey…the classics that I still love to this day.

Lastly, my father played an instrumental role in introducing me and my brother’s to God. We said our prayers with him at night. He would read the bible to us after supper. He was and I hope he still is, a firm believer in God and I sincerely hope God is watching over him.

I have to say both my parents play a part in my spiritual beliefs but I always felt like I had an extra bond with my father on that level.

I look at present day and I wonder when I will cross paths with my father again if ever. Perhaps at his funeral? Provided I even know about it. I know it sounds so morbid but when I do manage to talk about my father it’s always in past tense as if he has already passed away…

Fathers, don’t be a distant memory to your children. Don’t leave them with little moments that they will try to hang on to despite all you have put them through. Don’t let your past become your children’s.

I am not trying to take away the impact of a mother’s actions. It happens on both sides of the coin but there is something about a strong father including a father figure that is crucial to the development of a child. If you are a father with a difficult past, choose to rise above it and show your children what it really means to be a father. Be the one who breaks the cycle of abuse and start a new generation of healthy and happy adults…who will show their children the strong and awesome example you laid out for them ❤

Proverbs 20:7

The righteous who walks in his integrity— blessed are his children after him!

Let Live and Let God

Hey guys 🙂

Sorry it’s been a few days since my last post but I needed to recharge my writing batteries. I am sure my fellow writers can relate! 🙂

Today I want to talk about something we are all faced with at some point. Letting go.

There are many things we are faced with in life that prompt the question  “Should I stay or should I go.” (great song by the way)

In the past, letting go was something I seriously struggled with. It never really crossed my mind to turn to God during these times and allow Him to take over. Sometimes, in order for God to work through us we have to be willing to step aside and let Him do his work.

Philippians 4:6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Letting go can be frightening. Even if we know that deep down we need to walk away, many of us will hang on to bad relationships, jobs, influences etc. for we drown ourselves  in fear of the unknown. But God knows. He is leaps and bounds ahead of us and He knows what he wants for us even if we can’t see it at the time.

If we are not willing to jump, how is God supposed to catch us?

let your faith

Even if we stray from God, He manages to whisper to our soul the wishes He has for us. It manifests into that gut feeling we get when we know something needs to change for the better. He’s always there.

Always. ❤

When we feel pain and despair. When we feel stuck, when we cry at night thinking no one is watching, God cries with us. He wishes not to hurt us only to lift us up.

Let Him. ❤

It’s been my personal experience that the hardest thing to do is walk away from the people we love. Especially if we are worried for their wellbeing. We ask –

“If I walk away from this person, who will take care of them?”

God will.

It has also been my experience that when you face your fear of letting go and take the plunge, it’s never as bad as you think it’s going to be. On the contrary, it is in fact one of the most liberating things you can do! Once we free ourself from the chains of fear, God rewards us! It makes Him so happy that you put your faith in Him and in turn he blesses you with His love, joy and comfort.

If life were easy, there would be no need for faith. God puts our faith to the test not to punish us but to draw us closer and closer to Him so that He can protect us from the evil that roams this earth. Being true to God means you have to be true to yourself. We are a reflection of God’s image.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

In closing, know that you are not alone. There may be dark clouds in the sky but when you rise above those clouds, you see the sun is shining bright! Allow yourself to place your burdens on God. He can handle it. He is God after all. You are a reflection of God and by loving yourself enough to let go, you love God.

We are His children and He is the Father. ❤

God

Devil In Disguise

devil-disguise-29160994

Hey guys!

Today I want to present a warning to you in order to help restore your ability to be a critical thinker. A crucial weapon we need to arm ourselves with in order to fight this volatile world we live in right now.

It is no secret that the world we live in today is in major turmoil and it does not seem to be getting any better as time goes on. Clearly, the devil is at work as more and more people are losing hope for humanity and many are losing their faith in God as a result.

As the devil brings out the obvious big guns like war, mass shootings, angry protests, hate crimes, government scandals, and the list goes on, it does not compare to the devil’s biggest weapon of mass destruction and that is his deceit.

 

The Bible warns us of this deceit-

2 Corinthians 11:14

No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

 

It is my personal belief that as we continue to approach the last days, the biggest single danger we face is not global warfare with threats of mass destruction but a war on our minds and spirit and it’s attacking you everyday right in your own home.

Let’s take the mainstream music industry for example. It is riddled with satanic messages and imagery and yet the masses happily take it all in.

You have children mimicking their favourite artists having no clue what they are portraying and you have the parents of those children posting videos of how cute their child is as they attempt to dance and sing as provocatively as their idols..

You have shows like Toddlers and Tiaras where parents pimp out their children to the masses in sexually provocative song and dance…they are forced to dress and dance like women 6 times their age and yet people find it adorable and cute.

But it’s not folks…I want you to think for a moment how many pedophiles must be having a field day in the comfort of their own homes with this mainstream child porn. It’s right in front of our faces and we allow it to be so.

We are bombarded with commercials pushing us to buy the latest products that are also riddled with sexual imagery and a message that we must keep up in a shallow and materialistic society.

Turn on the news and tell me how happy you feel…

You have a radical left agenda forcing you to accept everyone and their dog despite the fact much of it goes against the word of God.

This agenda is pushed on us more and more everyday and if you don’t accept it, you are persecuted.

Good honest people have lost their jobs and even their lives over this kind of thinking because this persecution spreads like wildfire on social media.

Parents are now starting to be forced by schools to go to their kids and get them to figure out which gender they most associate with before they start their first year of school! What on earth is happening here?

Free speech and the ability to raise our children without the PC rhetoric being forced upon us is going out the window…

And what’s worse, you have the devil’s presence even in spiritual safe havens like your own church. New Age religions promote seemingly harmless practices designed to make you a better person but it strays away from the word of God and encourages you to look within yourself and discover your own path to destiny on your own terms.

I posted this bible verse before but I am going to post it again –

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

 

When I finally decided I was going to clean up my act and truly follow God’s path, the first thing I did was get rid of television. I have not watched anything on TV in 8 months now and you know what? It’s awesome to go about my day blissfully unaware of the crap that was constantly allowed to be pushed on me, especially in the news.

That is not to say I don’t watch anything anymore or that I tune out the media entirely but I am rather selective now of what I allow burned into my ears and retinas.

You see, the devil does not want you or I to be capable of critical thinking because that requires free will. The single most powerful weapon God made sure we would have. He gave us this free will so that those of us who choose to follow Him, do so willingly and honestly.

The devil hates this and wants to destroy your free will and numb your mind with entertainment and he will sink his teeth into any form of it that he can to promote his message while you sit there, a brainwashed automaton who is unaware that you are being controlled and losing your free will by the second.

However the devil believe it or not, allows for free will because he has to and when you willingly choose his side disguised as something good, by the time you realize what’s really going on, it’s too late and what does the devil do?

He laughs at you and says “Why are you upset? It was your choice! I did not force you to do anything.”

If anyone has ever watched The Devil’s Advocate, you will remember Al Pacino playing the role of the devil. Keanu Reeve’s character finally realises he has been deceived by the devil and in turn blames the devil for his misfortune.

Al Pacino replies –

Free will. It’s like butterfly wings: once touched, they never get off the ground. I only set the stage. You pull your own strings.

Free will is a grey area ripe for manipulation but it is necessary if we are to serve God with true intentions. In the book of John, he tells us to be critical thinkers –

 

1 John 4:1

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
