Stand for Right

Astand

We’re in a time when the spirit of perversion is running rampant and in full force on every level. People are confused about their identities, right seems wrong and wrong seems right. Some call evil good and what’s good some call evil good. Truth is considered fake and fake considered truth. Good deeds are misconstrued as something else and trickery well-spoken of. Words of encouragement are twisted and confused but words of foolishness and folly often praised. Seems the more you seek to get an understanding the more you are misunderstood. and ridiculed.

Some in the household of faith are converting to worldliness instead of encouraging others in the world to conform to the ways of the gospel. Holiness exchanged for hell and hell for holiness. We’re replacing praising for dancing and dancing for praising. The weapons of warfare are compromised for peace offerings so others will feel better instead of convicted. The pure in heart desiring to do right are shunned and ostracized and those doing evil deeds are gathering followers.

We’re in a time when you’re considered popular by the number of followers or likes on social media you receive instead of how many you encourage to follow you as you follow Christ. We will follow a solar eclipse with amazement but challenge the possibility of miracles, signs, and wonders. We will witness acts of nature with reverence and respect, but we will dismiss the possibility of a sovereign power higher than ourselves with disdain when it only takes faith to believe.

We choose to hate on others instead of loving on them. We often administer words to wound rather than heal. Things we can’t do a thing about, we talk about instead of pray about it. But, there will come a day of judgement for all our deeds. Justice will prevail over evil, evil will be exposed and brought to light. We all will be accountable for our actions.

So, if you are doing right, keep doing right. If you are doing wrong get right. Despite these signs of the time, right is still right, and wrong is still wrong. Don’t get weary in well-doing, fret not yourselves over evil doers, nor be envious because their work of iniquity will seem to prosper.

Be strong, be courageous. In due season, you shall reap if you faint not. The Lord will compensate for any wrong suffered doing His work. Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord. Be strong and courageous. There is a great reward for the righteous.

**I normally do not try to spiritualize my posts because I realize there are viewers from different walks of life and faith.  Only the Holy spirit can convict and deal with the hearts of man. I can only serve as a witness and spread the good news. I choose to use this venue in a creative manner which include practical truths of the gospel. However, with the things going on in this world and society, we must stand for right and not bury our heads in the sand as though wrong does not exist and truth is no longer necessary.

Success

SUccessful

Success is only a milestone. It’s an indicator a goal is accomplished. So, always remain teachable and open to learn because LIFE is a journey of endless possibilities. When you think you have arrived, then, you’ve limited your possibilities of accomplishing more.

Moments of Solitude

Solitary

asolitude.png

In my moments of solitude

when all voices are silent,

it’s you I hear the loudest.

It’s your voice which leads me.

In my moments of solitude,

it is a place from you

I am not tempted to waver.

In your presence,

I am not inadequate,

I am enough.

In my moments of solitude,

when all distractions cease,

we are one.

In the moments of solitude,

I am at peace.

I seek your face,

from you

I will not depart.

Asolitude

Tuesday’s Inspiration

Dalami

If you’re fulfilling the will

and purpose for your life,

don’t come down off the wall

to make others feel better

about not climbing up

to fulfill their purpose.

You’re more effective

pulling others up.

But, if you need pulling up,

always reach up

instead of pulling

others down.

 

`( Nehemiah 6:30)

A repost of my original entry

A Casual Kind of Day

Casual

Arelax

A casual kind of day is one unpretentious-

nothing more and nothing less.

No frills, no gimmicks, only spontaneity, and relaxation.

A casual kind of day is one without expectations-

just living in the moment and losing inhibitions.

No drama, no frustrations, only peace, and calm.

A casual kind of day, we should have more of them,

because on those days, we get to be ourselves.

A casual kind of day, we can have them every day.
