My life is not my own, to You I belong. I give myself. I give myself, to You. Giving ourselves to God is a choice. Loving God no matter what He does is a choice. Letting Him love us through everything is also a...you got it, a choice. When God puts a wrench in our plans, no wrench in our plans is too light...when something devastating happens like Ed loosing Rita, me loosing my mom at her young age 56 and my son loosing his dad age at even his younger age 40, it can be very difficult to let God in. In fact the most natural reaction is to shut Him out. It is natural to shut out those that help us most when we are hurting. Why? Perhaps because they know us best and know what we should do. What we should do and what we want to do is often very far from each other.
When my mom passed, I turned more to alcohol. I had been delivered from cocaine addiction before she passed. Thank God I never liked Marijuana. It made me lazy and want to eat all day. Ed shared he was introduced to Marijuana in the 60's and it made him hungry as well. Neither of us needed addition hunger starters. Marijuana is addictive. Pretty soon you can not function with out it. Just like every other unnatural vice we put in our bodies soon enough you need it every day. So many people becoming daily smokers of Marijuana because we can, it being legal.
Blows my mind the blindness that surrounds this movement. Who makes money from legalizing this DRUG. Might I remind you, it IS a drug and it is addictive. Coke A Cola had cocaine in it. I thought that was myth but my new friend who was there confirms it to be true. Why don't we ever get a documentary on that? You know why. MONEY. Bible says we can not serve two masters. Hollywood's master is money. Who are you serving? The makers of the drink had to take it out because it was addictive. Tobacco because it is inhaled destroys your lungs and it is addictive. Marijuana has both of these properties. How do we skip over that and call it Medical Marijuana?
The argument of Medical Marijuana, for the good of the Cancer patients and War Veterans propelled this movement forward. I tell you now, my mother when she lay dying in the hospital bed over 20 years ago received medical Marijuana in the form of a pill. It has NEVER been an issue for them nor our beloved Veterans. (Our beloved Veterans do not get treated well period.) In my mother's case, she had not eaten for to long to count. The chemo was brutal and left her with no appetite. That Medical Marijuana PILL sparked her appetite. I was amazed as I watched her take bite after bite of a fish sandwich. My mother stated as she munched away, "This is the best fish sandwich I have ever had."
There is a Bible verse that says: All liars go onto the lake which burns with fire. Revelations 21:8 Without repentance everyone who knows about this and pushed it forward will be in the lake of fire for eternity. Hell. Lets remember, Hell is not a swear word, it is a place. We were encouraged to not say that word when I was young. We were cautioned and corrected if we did say it so it would not be part of our lives. Remember what we speak about, what we think about is what we get.
There is a multitude of people walking around saying this word like it is nothing. Saying all swear words like they are nothing. Everything is something. Everything we do counts. Start talking about what you want in your life and for your families life. Do you want them to go to Hell? Of course not! Then do not let them speak about it. Think about it.
Lets stop giving that bugger of a devil so much attention. What we give attention to grows. If your child gets a bump on the head and you focus on symptoms of a head injury those symptoms will grow. If I think I look ugly those thoughts of ugliness will grow. If I think people are avoiding me everything will line up to support that thought. If I think people are talking about me...you get it! Lets stop it. Hey here is something you may not know, one is Marijuana side effects is paranoia! We must stop it. Our thoughts become things. Soon enough these things will be true but not for the original cause. For a cause I manifested in my mind which can be pure torture!
There was a saying my mom and people of her generation in the world said it went like this: "The whole world is going to pot!" And now look it IS! The saying was a "harm;less" observation one said when things were going wrong. And now with fulfilling prophecy evil will become good, good will become evil- this saying has not only manifested but it is viewed as GOOD. So many things that were evil now viewed as good. How many of these switches can you count today? Go ahead as your day moves take a little mental tally of what used to be viewed as evil and is now good. I dare you to do it. All that you see pray and tell others, "That used to be evil. Did you know that used to be evil?" People we must rise up and do it, because in God's eyes it still IS.
Here is the verse God has me focusing as of late:
What ever things are true, what ever things are honest, what ever things are just, what ever things are pure, what ever things are lovely, what ever things are of good report, if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8
I encourage you all to focus on this verse as well. What a Wonderful world it could be! Will be!
God IS Love IS Truth
These three are ONE.
