Hate:

Hate: a strong word, that describes a feeling towards someone that has done you wrong. It is used so often that people don’t care how much it hurts a person. To most people it feels like being stabbed with a knife. Just as most of you have been told “I Hate You”, I also have been told that numerous times, I have also told other people that, even said it to people that didn’t deserve it. The that I feel should have been told that was my father was never told. Was it out of RESPECT, or was it the fact I was trying to hold onto something I thought was still there.
I have come to the point however that I can’t recall the last time I have actually said that to someone. I Pray that all you parents, friends, children, and and especially the bullies, will learn how much just the simple, lonely word hate can cut the soul of someone deep and this can cause people to do things to do some very serious crimes or worse.
Even though I have many times thought about using it, I just couldn’t even after it has been said to me, which has been to many times, Thank God.

The time it really hurts to the point that you  really get upset and want to do something such as smack the person, go off some place and cry is when it comes from a child, that just got a little scolding for something they did wrong, you try to explain to them what they did wrong, their consequences, and then there comes that three word statement, I HATE YOU, then what do you do. Myself all I do is look at the person I am talking to is say you will see, it may take awhile but what you do to others will come back to haunt you.
Love all , no matter what he does, show them that you will continue to love them no matter what they have done.

I have also told many people that you will say the I hate you to some one, they will take it to heart and that will be the last time you will see him/her until their funeral, if you’re even notified at that time. It is easy to say I am sorry for the harsh words I have said to you, after the person(s) is gone. So with that being let me end with this piece of advice, Please choose your words carefully. Remember the statement, ( If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say nothing.

Peace and War

Many people know about peace and war involving the military, know as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Some know about the struggles with depression that comes with years of abuse mentally, physically, emotionally ,ect.  And yet there is the third kind of Peace and War, that people know but yet most don’t acknowledge it don’t understand it or just don’t care to understand it. It is the Peace and WAR between GOD and satan. This is the Peace and War I would like to talk about in this post today. Let me first say, we all know there is no Peace when it comes to GOD and satan,  There is only peace when you have pushed satan completely out of your  life and opened the door for God to enter, take the wheel and lead your life. However when you do this it will cause a hardship between you and others. Satan will start to put numerous dead ends, challenges, and obstacles, in your paths, and sometimes even use people you know to discourage you and make you turn your back towards him and say I have had it with you God now leave me alone. I know I have, but the one thing I also know about God is he is a sovereign God, and that he forgives no matter how many times you make a mistake.  Matthew 18:21-22 21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times. Now Jesus tells us in the first books of the bible that he was sent to do his Fathers’ Will, so when Jesus said not seven times but seventy – seven times he was telling us this is what God was telling him. Everything that is being preached from the bible is from God, through the mouth of his son Jesus Christ.  The Bible also says  in John  14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. That also states in itself that Jesus is doing what he was sent to do the work of God. Either way you look at it, prayers are answered by the Sovereign God through Jesus.

There are so many people that think they can’t let the Lord take the lead, that they have to be in the front and just have the Lord there only when they are struggling when there has been a road block dropped across the road or a fork in the road and they don’t know which path to take. Then they say to the Lord you can have the front. For I know not which path to take, or how do I get passed this road block. I am one of those people. For numerous times I have wanted to take that tandem bike and lead until I have come to a struggle  and one time I was told by the Lord, I am sorry but this is one time you must find your way out.

Well let me say this, at one time I was stuck in a huge circle of rose bushes and no matter how many times I asked God to help me get out without stepping on or walking through a branch or thorn it never worked because I wasn’t following God, so when I did get out I was all scratched up with thorns sticking out of my feet arms legs ect.  I know I did when I was stuck amongst that patch of rose bushes. So when you feel you are stuck in a moment you can’t get out of

Another example of wanting to lead the way until a trial or tribulation comes dropping in your lap. My son has had that happen to him recently and I hope he finds comfort in the Road of Life.

So let me end this by saying there will be times when you are asking for guidance and it will feel as though the Lord is not listening, but you have to understand He is there and all it is, is he wants you to walk through this a little while before he steps in to help or he knows that you can handle this situation on your own, or you just haven’t found the way that he has showed you because you weren’t listening to him, when he gave you the answers before.
