Does everything need to have a Reason?

A Reason Why?

A Reason Why?

If everything has a Reason, then, what’s the reason?

The reason is for us to seek from within and then know the reason why He lives and gives us the energy to give for no reason.  If you need a reason to do things for a reason, I would say find no reason to love for it’s the reason why you and I are here.

The Real Reason

Adam was the first man that opened the window for all men to sin, at the time, there were no laws to show his transgressions.  Therefore giving God a reason to create a law for man to know when he transgressed against it, he would be sinning.   Pay attention… It’s not the Law that make man righteous, it’s his faith, believing God has the power to do what he say He would do.  For instance, John 6:35 (NIV) “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. 

For Example:

Abraham was given credit for being a righteous man because he had faith and believed.  Although he was over the age of One Hundred years and Sarah, his wife, was over child bearing; when God promised him that he and his offspring would inherit the world and he would be the father of many nations, he had faith knowing that God had the power to make good on His promise.

The Law

Where there is a law there’s wrath. Where there is no law there’s no transgression.

Faith

We are justified through faith.  Calling things not seen; as though they were.  It’s better to believe in what you don’t see than in what you can see.  We’ve already been given a reason and yet many still will never believe that God gave His only begotten son for us to have our sins washed away and can’t find within their heart to ask for forgiveness.

Living in Abundance

God wants us to live an abundant life, therefore coming up with a plan filled with love that gives us an opportunity to enjoy love, peace and happiness in the world.  We should take the time to stop and think and listen for the reason our soul is crying out while the melody continues to play to keep us in tune for every season.  Knowing there’s a time and place for everything, and it’s up to us to find a reason to keep the faith, without wavering regardless of where we may be in life.  Faith causes long suffering and perseverance as it builds character to keep pushing through it all; never giving up the faith knowing that God will deliver on His word, giving credit for righteousness for us who believes in Him.

Romans 6:14 (NIV) For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law but under grace.

Change your mind, change your world.  Change your environment by changing your soil.

Help Get Me Out Of Here!

Close your eyes.. count to three... Now open!

Close your eyes.. count to three… Now open!

I understand where you R. Been there and at times will find myself going back there. Where? Where no one wants to be alone, where there are people and yet they don’t see or hear you, and yet you feel alone. Where everyone talks about what they want to talk about and hear and yet when it’s your turn, you’re left alone. You live in a house filled with people or a mind filled with voices and yet you feel alone. People are everywhere and still there’s no one to talk to…

So you walk around like a big tear drop waiting to fall. Knowing if and when you fall the rain will come and wash your tear drops away. So you hold back and keep going knowing one day the sun will shine and dry all your tears away…..

It seems as though it’s hard getting out of there. You get there and realize the grass is not as green over there. If you didn’t go there, you wouldn’t be here. Now can you see yourself getting here from there?

Help and get me from there to here!

Life may try to flip us from one side to the other. Even though I sleep on my right side, I find myself turning on to my left side. After lying there for a few hours, I managed to turn back onto the right side and all the time while laying on the side that’s uncomfortable I asked myself …”why am I sleeping on the side that’s uncomfortable”? my answer .. “the side that’s comfortable to sleep on got uncomfortable”. When we get to comfortable, the comfortable becomes uncomfortable and can cause us to switch sides. If you choose the right side to find comfort … He promises to keep you in perfect peace as long as your mind stays on Him…… for further discussion read Isaiah 26:3

Where are you?  How did you get there? 

It’s as simple to get out of there as it was getting here.

 

 

Describe yourself by color ….

Self-Help, Color choices

What color would you use to describe yourself ? 

There are many colors to choose.  So many, I truly don’t know where to start.  Let’s say I start with a recognizable movie title, “Lady sings the Blues”.  Does this mean we associate the color blue with a life filled with drugs, depression, drama, gifts and talents that were used and abused?  Or does it mean we color the day blue because of fear and hope intertwined that’s smoldering out a hopeless fire that’s never had an opportunity to burn.

All the fire inside heating up passion, that never gets a chance to ignite, from the gift of love.  Love is there in us; we were created with love.  Somewhere somehow, it was lost or never felt it was given.  This is a hard one to figure out for most, yet simple for myself to think about.

May I ask a question?  Do you love yourself?  To love, we must know love.  Love can’t be measured, only felt from a natural reaction when we act.  The organic roots have been lying dormant attempting to root to find ways around roots that are connected and not growing love, joy, passion, peace and wealth.  Only growing into a ball of confusion, if you don’t start pruning now, these roots will grow together, becoming one.

When we remain withdrawn from letting others into our life, we’re begging to find shelter elsewhere.  We want to be comfortable in our own space.  I understand, if it’s a place filled with love and you can’t wait to get there, if it’s a place to escape from reality and we make choices like drugs, alcohol, or letting others abuse us for sexual exploitation, male or female, remember, we always go back to reality. Even if we choose to live or die, either way, every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord!

We must return home (reality) sooner or later.
