G’day to ya!
I do hope your day is starting out well or has been a wonderful one depending on when you read this post. It’s mid-morning for me.
I look out my eastwardly facing window watching the brisk wind chase the fallen leaves all around the yard. I see the small whimsical windmills spinning wildly in my flower garden. My plants have seemingly died but I know they are merely resting until the spring up next year. When the new season arrives, I will feed them a good diet that will enable them to grow strong and thrive!
What are you feeding on?
Hasn’t 2020 brought with it a boatload of multiple issues we’ve had to learn to deal with, learn new coping skills if you will. I personally struggle with a lot of the changes that have hit our society hard. Even so, I will not give up on the greatness of our nation. No wait a minute! The greatness of humanity!!
You see I am a firm believer in the saving grace of Jesus Christ and Him crucified on the cross for you and for me! Without Him I would not be here, and I know that without a doubt! I would either be dead or in an insane asylum because of all the horrors I’ve lived through.
The key word here is… ‘lived through’!!
And we also have choices every day to make that will assist us in making it through each day.
We have a grand choice laid out before us!
- We can give into the fear mongering by watching new 24 x 7 and reading every post on social media.
- We can say, ‘enough is enough’ and turn it off choosing instead to gain fresh insight and peace!
We take charge of just exactly what we chose to feed on during the day!
I am not saying to go off and do whatever to whomever you wish. No, that’s not right either! We use common sense and stay safe!
There are two sides: Good vs evil!
This is nothing new.
It’s been that way since the beginning of time way back in Genesis chapter 3. Check it out! It’s in the Word!
So, it is with what we choose to feed ourselves day in and day out!
It’s a choice again!
- We eat good, nutritious food.
- Or we eat junk food that is dead and does us not one bit of good!
You can often tell what kinda diet a person has by what comes outta their mouth!
Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV)
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, but his heart is not with you.
I firmly believe there is a remnant on this great planet watching and strategizing on doing the Father’s work to bring His Kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven. I assure you, there is no virus in Heaven! Nor is there any fear or anxiety! Those are tools of the evil one.
What do you think might happen if we as a people of all races, shapes and sizes, colors and beliefs suddenly began to rise up and say, ‘Enough is enough!’ We chose love and peace and humanity!
Oh, to many, maybe even you who are reading these words, may think this is a pipe dream!
I’ve even heard Christians say things like, ‘Well, the end is near! Jesus is coming soon. Ain’t much to do now but wait!’
I say to that, ‘Hogwash’!!
We are called to get off our blessed assurance and be about the Father’s business.
I know! I know!
What about those who do not believe in Jesus.
That’s totally your choice. The cool thing about Jesus is that He most certainly won’t beat you over the head to chose to follow Him. He loves you no matter. But your final destination may not be to spend eternity with Him if you chose otherwise.
Stop! Think! Examine! Research! Read! Strategize! Believe on Him! And breathe in His peace and comfort!
I’ll admit that during this year my anxiety has spiked numerous times. Yet, my trust is in the One who gave me life! I am choosing to let go and trust Him! I encourage you to join me!
What an exciting time to be alive!

I’d love to hear from you!
You are not alone!
I’m praying for you!
