Will Power (what is that?)

I realized today that I don’t have a theme or journey or anything day to day type blog. I just write or type when I feel compelled or lead to.

After thinking about it and going back to read my older posts, I can see a maturity growing. So I think that this blog is diagramming my writing and Christian maturity.

See now, as all stories go, well the ones with happy endings, the one’s who know that they have the happy ending, they have to have some bad bits too. If your whole life is cake and then you can actually eat the cake without getting fat, well you have no idea how lucky you are and most likely take it so far for granted that it would make other people sick.

On the other hand when you walk through the ruff and fire and come out still in one piece you can truly appreciate the good and happy ending.

Now I am not saying that being saved later in life makes you more of a christian, I am just saying when you live half your life really truly believing that you will rot in a wooden casket six feet under ground getting chewed through by bugs. Not a pretty picture. But when you can wake up one day and say no that won’t be me. Maybe my human body but not me, the part that really makes me me. That part is not my skin, my weight, my eye color, my crooked teeth. My soul is me. The never ending me. The last forever live in heaven me. So thankful for that.

So even though we should take care of ourselves, our bodies are not the most important. When we take care of our souls, I truly believe the rest can follow, if we so desire. The best quote I’ve heard was “not to rely on self will- power but to rely on God’s power.” That is from the Daniel Plan book, haven’t read the whole thing, but I think that may just be the best line in it. Because it is the truth, by ourselves nothing is possible, but with God anything is possible. Yes, thank you for that truth.

I am praying AND begging God to take the power, oh how do I wish He would just take my will away and give me a map, how many heartaches and mistakes could I of avoided if He worked that way. But He doesn’t, but He will guide us, if we take the time to ask Him.

So scared to think out loud…

I am so tired of everyone’s politically correct outrages and outbursts. I wish we could all just be honest. I am not completely honest either. I am so scared to offend someone, that I have been keeping my beliefs and opinions all bottled up. and here I am exploding. So I wish I could apologize if I offend you. But all this nonsense is offending me and NO one will apologize to me. So sorry if hurt your feelings but I’m not sorry for the way I feel.

I believe in God.

I believe Jesus is God’s son, the He died for our sins and came back.

I believe that we are Male or Female, I don’t believe God makes mistakes.

I believe that marriage in God’s eyes are between and man and a woman. For the sake of children. ( I am not judging).

I believe that COPS are good and helpful.

I believe that if you run from cops or attack them, they have the right to stop you by any means, so please teach your children to respect and listen to them. Or they might get shot.

I believe that every child is different and deserves options of different types of teaching.

I believe that common core is a joke.

I believe that federal government as NO place in education.

I believe that parents know their kids better than teachers.

I believe that children are unique and priceless.

I believe that prayer should be allowed at schools, not only prisons.

I believe that Hillary is not our best option.

I believe that Trump is our best option out of the two, but not hand picked by me.

I believe that God is in control so we should not dislike other’s for their opinions or voting records.

I believe that Guns are powerful and not a toy to be played with.

I believe that it would be terrible if the only people who could buy them were out of trunks and in alleys.

I believe we should have the right and option to protect ourselves, homes, and families by any means necessary.

I believe that we are all individuals made by God and that we are our own people, with brains and hearts, to use them, have your own feelings and thoughts.

I believe that originality has died.
