HAPPY THANKSGIVING, 2015!!!

PSALM 118:24
This is the day the Lord has made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it.

COLOSSIANS 3: 15-17
And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts.  For as members of one body you are called to live in peace.  And always be thankful.
Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives.  Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom He gives.  Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.  And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.

1 THESSALONIANS  5:16-18
Always be joyful.  Never stop praying.  Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

COUNT ALL YOUR BLESSINGS,  my friends.  And then…“THANK GOD”…for each one of them!!!  Hoping you ALL enjoy a safe and Happy Thanksgiving Day, 2015!!!

“‘TIS THE SEASON!!!”  AGAIN???!!!???!!!???!!!  ALREADY???!!!???!!!???!!!  😉

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

Choosing “GOOD” Over “BAD”

BAM!!!  “I am so very, Very, VERY THANKFUL that I can hardly STAND IT!!!  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  Hhhmmm…now “THAT” was the statement I started my day with…YESTERDAY (Wed.,11/25/15)…at work.

My, how that positive energy was QUICKLY changed by such negativity.  OUCH!!!  I was, SADLY, reminded how MOST teammates are so, So, SO quick to “THROW YOU UNDER THE BUS” as opposed to simply “HELPING” as needed.  DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!

I was a bit frustrated, no…I was a bit angry, by what I perceived as negativity.  Forgive me, Father.  I STILL have difficulty finding your Goodness in ALL situations.  One teammate reminded me to…”LET IT GO.  LET IT GO”…and that worked for a second as I sang the Disney tune, but I sadly admit that I allowed the negativity to quickly return and torment me for a good little while.  OUCH!!! 

“BACK OFF SATAN!!!  MY GOD’S GREATER THAN YOU!!!”  I was shouting that statement inside my own mind, folks, as I stood next to my patient in therapy.  IT WORKED!!!  Thank you, Jesus.  LIFE is so much better when negativity (Satan) is NOT allowed to dominate my thoughts.

REMINDER:  “We are who we are based on where we’ve been and how we’ve responded to situations while simply seeking to survive LIFE”.  I DO think we ALL do our BEST to respond to situations right here…right now.  And I also believe most of us “HOPE” that we will respond to similar situations even BETTER…the NEXT time.

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

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

“COMPASSION???”

My heart aches, folks.  I FINALLY “GET IT”…better today than yesterday…but NOT as good as tomorrow.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I “GET” IT, I “GET” IT, I “GET” IT!!!  MOST people DO tend to “CARE” about others.  I care.  YOU care.  He cares.  She cares.  MOST OF US “CARE”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I must admit that I ALSO entered the altruistic snare called “COMPASSION” in an earlier stage of My Spiritual Life Journey, folks.  “COMPASSION”…can be a savvy trap, folks.  Set by Satan himself, seeking to draw-in caring individuals and to veer them off their path of “HELPING” others to accept God’s FREE GIFT of ETERNAL LIFE.  YEP…I was getting sucked into that trap called “COMPASSION,” as well.  The trap of denying God under the guise of liking and accepting people “AS-IS” without seeking to share the GOOD NEWS forward to ALL.  OUCH!!!

ALL PEOPLE…A-L-L   P-E-O-P-L-E…are worthy of Eternal Life in Heaven.  And we are ALL worthy BECAUSE…Jesus paid the FULL price for ALL of our sins through His horrible death.  Thank you, Jesus.  AMEN and AMEN.

“LIFE IS DIFFICULT,” folks!!!  For everybody.  Everywhere.  NOW…can we PLEASE just try to “HELP” each other along the way???

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

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day.

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
