Christians, Individuals In A Group Experience

  1. GOOD MORNIN,…..lol,…I’m all in a good morning mood today!!! lol………….now, my confession,….it took me about two hours of nice reflective praying to get “here!!!!!!!” I’m not kiddin either! Yall ever have days like this??? For me, my morning was like those tests we had to take in grade school, the ones where we get to go out on the playground, but “ONLY AFTER” we, not only “finish” the test,…but PASS IT AS WELL,…WITH FLYING COLORS!!!! BIG OLD LOL!!!!!! BUT TRUE!!!

    THE LAST 12 HOURS OF MY LIFE HAVE BEEN NOTHING SHORT OF MIRACULOUS!!! WHY??? BECAUSE I “TRULY DESIRED” FOR THEM TO BE!!! I HAVE DISCOVERED, OR, BEEN SHOWN, MUCH CONCERNING WISDOM! most of us, as christians, especially with the availability of “GOOGLE” can (and do!) rapidly “quote” scriptures all day long! As for wisdom,…we “google” wisdom,…in mere seconds, there are all the scriptures about wisdom,…then we just copy and paste,….AND VOILA!!!!! WE LOOK TO BE A HIGHLY EDUCATED BIBLE SCOLAR!!!!!!! WEEEEHHHEEEEE, LOOK AT ME!!!!!!! I’M A “KNOW-IT-ALL!!!!!!!!

    OH,…BY THE WAY,……..THIS METHOD IS “NOWHERE REMOTELY CLOSE TO WHAT GODLY WISDOM IS!!!!!!” not at all…..jus sayin. is “wisdom”, something that we “HAVE?????” or, is “wisdom”, something that we “DO??????” the bible will reinforce that wisdom,….IS SOMETHING THAT WE DO!!!………………………..Solomon “had” wisdom, right???????? But,…it was “only” wisdom,..as long as he “used” it….correct??????? He built all the altars for his “too” many wives and concubines,…and he built them, on (in) high places,…right????? Solomon “compromised”,…correct??????? Why??????? Because HE, SOLOMON, WAS “NOT PRACTICING” WHAT HE “KNEW” TO BE THE “RIGHT” THING!!!!!!!……I think we know how it all ended for solomon, don’t we??? lol…if not, “google” it!!!! lol

    You ever heard the old saying, “there is more than one way to skin a cat??????” I have been really, RRREEAALLLLLLYYYYYYYY thinkin and prayin about this lately!!!!!!! I’m really diggin what I have learned too!!!! And, I admit, that because of how “profoundly beautiful” (AND EXTREMEMLY SIMPLE!!!) what I,…”HAVE NOW” learned is, that I am extremely excited to share it with “whomever!!!” why????? Because it (WHAT I HAVE LEARNED, AND ACCEPTED) will “help us all” grow closer as “christian” brothers and sisters!!!!!! “GOD HIMSELF GUARANTEES IT!!!!!!!”

    I am also a bit “nervous”, although nervous isn’t the correct word……….I AM “RESPECTFULLY FEARFUL”,…….WHICH MEANS THAT I AM “FEARFUL” IN A GODLY WAY! AND THIS IS THE BEST KIND OF FEAR TO HAVE!!!! IT MEANS THAT WE ARE (FREE) “WILLING”, AND HAVE A TRUE HEALTHY DESIRE TO LEARN A LESSON!!! IN OTHER WORDS,….WHEN WE LEARN GODLY LESSONS,……WE ARE MATURING. MEANING, WE ARE “GROWING UP!!!”

    I don’t wanna leave you hangin,…..so I’ll share a little more bout what I learned as I go,……more later…………

    1. hey tim! the reason that i posted what i’m writing, is because it has to do with what your post is exactly,……..even though it may not look like it yet???? it is about why we “as christians” don’t “always” get along so well,……as well as how we are “to get along” with each other…………

      as for the “turn the other cheek” part,……..that is the “key”,……..and it is way cool!!!!

      a hint,….jesus tells us,….when “struck”,…turn the other cheek, right????

      if i had a nickel for how many times i have heard someone say that jesus means to just leave the person alone, without fighting back!!!!! i would have a lot of nickels. tim!!!!!!

      what he is saying is much much deeper!!!!!!! ponder it if you wanna!!!! toss me your thoughts if you like! toksoon, tim……….

  2. Growing up, IS A HUGE PART OF “OUR” BEING CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF GOD’S SON!!!”……………….we had bettered “really” desire to let this sink in, folks!!!…it is crucial!!!

    HAVE YOU EVER REEEALLLLLLYYYYY THOUGHT DEEPLY ABOUT THE SCRIPTURE, “TURN THE OTHER CHEEK?????” HOW ABOUT, “PRAYERFULLY????????……….WHAT DID, AND DOES, (SINCE HE IS STILL ALIVE) JESUS MEAN BY THIS “SAYING???” HHHMMMMMMMMM,…….”TURN THE OTHER CHEEK??????????????”

    lookin back at my life,…I “remember,“ that I have been in a few fights. What we might call “fist fights.”
    Why am I tellin you this??? I’ll tell ya. As we sit with our eyes glued to the television screen, we see that in “movie fights“, most times the “fighters” take turns hitting one another.
    You know what I mean, right??? yup, “he hits him, and then him hits he, and he hits him, etc, etc“,………yup????? Movie fights are dumb!!!

    In reality,….it’s (fist fighting) a whole nuther ball game!!! in the times when I was pushed to the point of “losing control” (losing my cool, that is!!!) enough to ACTUALLY PHYSICALLY fight with the “instigator“, “THEN”,…it wasn’t about taking turns!!!
    MY, common sense GOAL WAS TO PUT AN ABRUPT END TO THE CRAP that had been “thrown“ my way!!!!

    Fact is, when it came to fighting, and finishing “what was started”, I did this, “finishing”,…as QUICKLY as POSSIBLE, too!!! Fighting is not a “game”, to me!!! It is something that must be taken very, very, seriously!!! There is a life on the line!!! “Mine!!!” And I intended to keep it!!!
    So, WHY did I put an end to it as quickly as possible??? well, as I have, “kind of” already explained, but since this subject should be, and needs to be, taken very seriously,…there are a COUPLE of reasons.

    But,…THERE IS ONE “reason” which would seem to be much more “OBVIOUS” than the OTHERS,…………I DID “NOT WANT” TO BE HURT!!!
    At least, truth be told,…I did NOT WANT TO BE HURT, ANY “MORE”,…THAN I “ALREADY WAS, and or, HAD BEEN HURT, THAT IS!!!
    Can anyone understand this????????? IT’S PRETTY MUCH DAY ONE STUFF,…YA KNOW!??? RIGHT???

    more in a few…
    Ooooppppssss,….before I go, though!…
    I ASK YOU THIS,…HAVE YOU EVER HEAR THE SCRIPTURE,….

    ”THE SPIRIT IS WILLING,…
    BUT THE FLESH IS WEAK??????????”…

    I’d like to encourage you to look “deep” into what “those” words “really” mean, and you will “SEE” it, clear as day,…and,…you will “HEAR” it, clear as a bell!!!
    And you will see it, PROBABLY, “EVEN BEFORE” I FINISH WRITING ABOUT THIS, TOO!!!

    OK,…more later………
