Hello, Blog. It’s June 11th. I have been computer access-less the passed four (4) days, which is why I haven’t posted for June! Right now all I have to say is this…
Life is precious. It is truly a gift from God, even if we have to live in this world which gets darker and terrifying and ridiculous every day. God created you in HIS image, whether you know Him or not; you were created in the image of the God of creation and He loves you, no matter what you have, are, or will go through. No matter what you’ve done, you’re doing, or you’re going to inevitably do! He loves you so much that he came into this world, born of a virgin, Jesus Christ lived and breathed on this earth, the son of God, and was later sacrificed, crucified, on a cross for YOU and ME! He gave His life in one of, if not the most brutal ways imaginable and it was all for us selfish humans and our sins. Our debt of eternal hell was paid by the blood of a perfect Lamb. When you ask God to forgive you of your sins, ask Jesus to wash you pure as snow with His blood you defeated death and the grave when He rose from the grave, and the Holy Spirit comes into your heart, your conscience, to convict you of your wrong ways, we; the miserable fools who can’t see passed our own noses most of the time, were given the gift and the choice in this life to live eternity in heaven! We are promised, all those who call upon the name of the Lord (For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13), to be saved and be granted when we die to live eternity in heaven with God, the created of man, creature, nature, universe, time, science, etc! You may not want to believe that or may have never known about it, but that right there, the decision of your eternity, is the most important decision you will ever make. This world is fallen, we will make bad choices, meet bad people, get involved with bad things, but God has forgiven you and will continue to forgive every sin as long as you confess them to Him. And you have full power over you decision to accept the Lord Jesus as your Savior! You get to choose! You’re not going to be forced to because it has to begin in your heart.
I say these things because I heard a very sad thing today, and yesterday I experienced an accident. Today I found out that a girl, 22-years-old, a very talented singer, she was on The Voice and also had over 3 million subscribers on YouTube, was shot last night, three times, and confirmed dead this morning. Someone took her life then took his own life and possibly the lives of other people there because he was upset (and crazy) about something?! See how selfish we are? It’s our second nature! Maybe our first. These days when everything is easy access and no one’s waiting for anything, kids are being deceived in every aspect of life, parents aren’t parenting their children well or caring for them well, everything is electronic, the list goes on. People are losing more and more sight of what’s important, and I hate to say it but YOU are not that important. Where were the people raising this guy when he was going through crap in his life to get to this point where he takes two shot guns and a knife to a concert and SHOOTS someone, kills her? What was going on in his mind? The reason these things keep happening with shooters at events (other then peoples/terrorist groups from other countries which is very different), is because they get a hold of weapons somehow and the majority of the time are on medication for mental disorders or depression, etc. People aren’t loving them or really trying to help them. Maybe some of these mental shooters have been paid, who knows! I’m getting a little excited here and I don’t want to ramble on and on. Ms. Christina Grimmie was shot, but from things she’s posted online it looks like she is in heaven with God and Jesus! Hallelujah! What is the point of this life if you cannot live with the hope of spending eternity with Jesus?! We’re fearful of death, and even I don’t want to die, but I know, because of my choice to accept Jesus into my life and my heart, that when, where, however I leave this world we all know my spirit, my soul, is going to heaven!
The accident I witnessed (to keep it short) was on the way to work I was going to turn left and I was yielding, a silver car drove by and slowed down to stop at a traffic light. Right then I decided to turn right instead of left, and as I switched my blinker, a red car came up behind the silver one (where I would have been if I turned left) and bashed right into the back of the car. It was a awful sound and the bumper/fender and headlights/tail lights shattered all over the road. Thankfully no one was hurt, but man! It was a close one for myself and a crappy start to the day for both of them!
So, I don’t wish to leave anyone feeling hopeless; that is the last thing I want to do! Please, if you have stopped by today, take this hope from what I have said: Jesus loves you so much that He died for you. You are made perfect and whole and are completely forgiven by the blood of Christ. All you need to do is realized you have sinned, go to Jesus confessing your sins and asking Him to forgive your sins and for the Spirit of God to come reside in your heart. For anyone who hasn’t done this who may be reading this post, I will leave some links at the end of this post of some wonderful resources (*I am NOT sponsored!).
Blessings to you. May you have an amazing day, a safe weekend, and tell those you love and hold close to you how much you love them. It’s so important to do that everyday. Not only does it lift your spirits, but it also lets people know that they are loved which prevents depression, for example, and awful accidents from happening.
Oh, and I have nothing against guns; I believe wholeheartedly that responsible, legal, gun owners should be able to defend themselves with their guns and defend people around them if they were ever in a shooting situation as such. No matter how much you out law something, people who want it are going to get it at any cost; even the cost of someone else’s life.
Okay! I will write tomorrow for sure and have a more cheery topic! Much love and many blessings.
P.S. I did not go back and proof read so I ask for you forgiveness of anything misspelled…
