KEEPERS OF CASTLES…con’t

1)  PHYSICAL CASTLES (discussed in previous post, dated 5/24/14)

a.  Weight Keeper

b.  Skin Keeper

2)  MENTAL CASTLES:  READY?  HERE WE GO…

a.  Mind Keeper.

WOW!!!  “Mind Keeper,” folks.  DOUBLE WOW, WOW!!!  In order to be a good “Mind Gate Keeper,” we have got to feed our brains “POSITIVE THOUGHTS”!!!  Numerous times… DAILY!!!  Get it?  Positive… “FOOD”… for thoughts!!!  HA!!!  Now, “CHEW” on that nugget!!!  😉  (Yep, I’m chuckling…)

So, feeding our minds positive thoughts is the MAIN criteria for being GOOD MENTAL GATE KEEPERS?  WOW!!!  These positive thoughts, however, MUST be comprised of… THE TRUTH!!!  And… ONLY…the truth.   ACCORDING TO GOD’S WORD!!!  DOUBLE WOW, WOW!!!

Satan will try to insert “LIES” by filling minds with negative, hurtful, and evil thoughts.  “GOOD”… MIND GATE KEEPERS, however… must NEVER allow those thoughts to gain ENTRANCE!!!  To get rid of those thoughts, I will simply say something like this:  “BACK OFF, SATAN!!!  MY GOD IS GREATER!!!”  BAM!!!  And then my mind-set, magically…shifts from “bad” to “good” thoughts.  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  IT IS “THAT” SIMPLE, folks!!!

3)  SPIRITUAL CASTLES:    Ready?  Let’s keep moving…

a.  Faith Keepers

OMG!!!  “Faith Gate Keepers”…  I’ve got chills, folks.  “THIS”… simply blows my mind!!!  DOUBLE OMG, OMG!!!  “FAITH” keepers… “keeping” our “FAITH” S-T-R-O-N-G!!!  Keeping our “FAITH” … A-L-I-V-E!!!  “IT’S  A-L-I-V-E!!!”  😉

So, what is “FAITH”?  Simply…”IT” is belief that Jesus died on that cross as payment for our sins and that He rose again, 3 days later as proof that this payment was deemed sufficient.  Our sins have been “forgiven”.  ALL past, present and future sins that were, are, and will be committed.  Now, do you accept HIS FREE gift of “ETERNAL LIFE”?  If so, then let your walk with Jesus begin…or continue on-ward!!!  Amen.  Now, “THIS” is what is referred to as “SAVING FAITH”.  KNOWING.  BELIEVING, without a doubt, that you WILL meet your Maker in His Kingdom of Heaven,  ONE FINE DAY!!!  ALLELUIA!!!  

The brief outline of this entire discussion, “KEEPERS OF CASTLES,” is as follows:

KEEPERS OF CASTLES…

WOW!!!  “KEEPERS of CASTLES.”  DOUBLE WOW, WOW!!!

“THAT”… is what we are, folks!!!  EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US… are T-H-E  “KEEPER” of our “CASTLES”!!!  Please notice how that is worded… “WE” (ALL of us) are each the “KEEPER” (singular) of our individual “CASTLES” (plural)!!!

So, what “CASTLES” are we each, individually, responsible for?  Think, THink, THINK!!!  Are YOU thinking???  WOW, “THIS” is DEEP, folks.  Really, REally, REALLY… D-E-E-P!!!  Please come along on another trip to “Jill’s World”.  READY???  HERE… WE… GO…

Okay, “THIS” is an idea I’ve been tossing around in my brain (Jill’s world) for awhile now, partially.  “IT” (the idea) has recently expanded and “IT”… simply “BLOWS MY MIND”!!!  What are those castles?  I propose that those “CASTLES” each of us are the “KEEPER” of, include the following:  1) PHYSICAL;  2) MENTAL;   and 3) SPIRITUAL.  “THINK ABOUT IT!!!” (Ppsssttt… another tribute to my brother, Bob 🙂    Our physical bodies represent that first “CASTLE” in “MY” mind.  Now, let’s examine each separately…

#1)  Our “PHYSICAL” CASTLE = our bodies.  Subgroup A.) The WEIGHT KEEPER.  Folks, my “weight” has been a problem much of my life.  I am not saying that I have been over-weight…“REALLY”… I don’t think.  The emotional/psychological “difficulties” I suffered from resulted in… “weight issues”, most similar to anorexia.  My weight issues began at around age 20 and got sidetracked shortly after my 22nd B-day… due to the accident.  The emotional/psychological difficulties, however, did continue after the accident.   AND… so did the weight issues, which remain an emotional problem to date.  I’d have to admit that the difficulties encountered post the accident have involved “OVER” eating which then involved “OVER” exercising (due to anxiety)… OR… “UNDER” exercising (due to depression), resulting in my being dissatisfied with my body, A.K.A.:  my  PHYSICAL CASTLE”.  WHEW!!!  Now, what constitutes a good “WEIGHT KEEPER” of the “PHYSICAL CASTLE”?  Any thoughts?

Subgroup B.) The SKIN KEEPER.  This may include, but is not limited to, piercings and tattoos.  I think I “OVER-pierced” a bit in my early 20’s.  AFTER… the accident.  3 in my right ear, 4 in the left.  More, MOre, MORE!!!  Now, was that cool?  Just how many are too many?  Or was it compensation for a perceived deficit…somewhere???  “I”AM NOT SURE, folks.  And what about tattoos?  Are they cool?  How many are too many?  Or are they meant to be a distraction from a perceived deficit…somewhere???

The SKIN KEEPER is also in charge of cleanliness.  And grooming.  How does each “GATE KEEPER” choose to present their “PHYSICAL BODY CASTLE”?  Many, many choices  involved for the “GATE KEEPER” of this “CASTLE”.  My head is swimming, folks.  I do not feel capable of addressing the last 2 categories at this time:  #2) MENTAL  and
#3) SPIRITUAL…  “CASTLES”.  More later, folks…

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
