Savior of the World

We are finding out just how true the Word of God really is right now in these end times (?)  So much of what was written in the Bible has already proven beyond all doubt that Jesus the Christ really is the Savior of the world & therefore the Son of God.

There is a reason that the Godless heathen hates Christians & mocks Christ all the while frantically trying to remove any influence of Christianity from this sorry world.  They know He’s the Christ or they wouldn’t try this hard.  If these unbelievers really didn’t believe, they would not care less if we made fools of ourselves praying to our “invisible friend” as some call Him.

Important to know He is invisible to the unworthy.  The ones with too much hate in their hearts & no room for God to dwell.

There is a reason that EVERY knee must bow & tongue confess that Christ is Lord.  Look what is currently happening.  God did not mean for this to be our life.  If we all believed we would treat each other with loving kindness & not the fake plastic smile kind meant to make you look good to others.  Real kindness with real love.

Daily Prompt: Sink or Swim?

So is a little thing like your life considered an overwhelming situation?

Funny that I have felt for so long like I have been dog paddling trying to survive in my life.  I never seem to get anywhere so it’s not like I am actually swimming.  With God’s help I have not sunk yet, but the older I get the more tired I become.

Most people have some kind of family support in their lives, but this has never been my case and I don’t say this to feel sorry for myself.  I come from a severely dysfunctional family of many secrets, but it helped me to become the strong woman I am.  It is very had being related to a family of mentally ill substance abusers because you never hear from anyone unless they need something.  None were ever in a position to help me and I dealt with that by shutting down emotionally and just kept swimming pretending that I was not dying inside.  I lied, because I died.

Now at least I can forgive myself for not making it to my imagined finish line that I drew for myself in my life because of the lovely surprise of our mortgage meltdown just a few years after finally purchasing my own home.  I think that was one of the finish anchors that finally told me to give up, I can’t win for losing.

Po Girl has to shine because she has no choice.  Jesus said he would never leave or forsake those that follow Him and I believe Him.  Good folk don’t usually cotton to those from the wrong side of the track as well as having to live in an all white neighborhood and our family is racially mixed though most of us look pretty white as far as that goes.  I was not allowed to play with a lot of the little white kids, I would get chased home even though I played very nicely with the other children.  It wasn’t until things were even pointed out to me about racial differences or skin colors that I even noticed I was a little darker than the other kids, especially in the summer when I was very dark, but that’s another blog post.

My outcome is that I will never give up because I don’t know how, thanks to God, and I still believe in miracles and following the Golden Rule.

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: BIG

Jesus has been the biggest hope and salvation this world has ever seen.  When it comes to the biggest difference to humanity, there is nothing that can challenge The Golden Rule and the stark simplicity and truth of concept.  When I think of big, I think of the big sacrifice one man of God made to save the world from themselves with the simple commandment of “Love One Another.”
