Help Me!

I’m asking everyone of my readers if they can help me out of a situation.

I usually don’t like to do this, but I’ve hit a wall and I see no way out!

My auto insurance lapsed February 10th of this year. For some reason the notices from the insurance company never made it to my mailbox. They repeatedly tried to call me, but the house number had been disconnected when we switched over to cel phones only.

I got my auto insurance reinstated, but now I need to come up with either $501 dollars in seven days, or $751 dollars after that to reinstate my vehicle registration. Otherwise, I can’t move and can’t take care of myself

Below is the link to a gofundme account I’ve set up. It’s only for $500, but I will go for that.

Please share this with everyone you believe will help. Thank you!

God Made Weed

This is a good article written by angel.
Before reading the article, please be aware that if you are a Christian who chooses to smoke weed, you are really not setting yourself apart from the rest of the world. Your witness should be one that is flowing with the fruit of the spirit:  love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.… Also, keep in mind that while doctors have “sort of” declared that cannabis is helpful, it is, in fact a drug.

There are many “non-medical” articles out there that cite that pot helps people.
I’m not a doctor, and I don’t know the facts. But as a Christian I do believe that we should lean on Jesus for all our help.

Remember that pot as a very strong odor associated with it. Some people can’t handle that smell. It may end up hurting your Christian witness towards them.

Always do your own research, don’t follow the crowd.

He wants you to suffer, not prosper!

I once took a yoga class.

Yeah.

My main, ok…my only reason for doing so was to hang out with some friends.

Did you know that a whale shouldn’t do yoga?

I mean, it just doesn’t look right. It doesn’t feel natural.

It’s kind of performing a somersault in gym class in school. It just went wrong.

I have a hard time accepting other’s people’s religions. While everybody seems to be on the same page, a lot of time there’s a bit of difference. It’s not much, but it effectively tells you “I’m not going to do that again.”

Since Jesus walked among us there has  been talk of who He was, and what He was doing, and what He was sent to do.  Jesus, in His rather peaceful, but bloody mission, broke all the molds of what people thought He would be. I don’t know why it was that people expected Him to be a conquering King. I’ve seen the results of war overseas (and on the dirt of our country) in my young life, and it’s never pretty. Women raped, children beaten, houses burned….And Christianity has, indeed been one of the most bloody religions ever to exist.

Did Jesus come to stop all this? Many would say yes. And they may be right. But before we receive any kind of blessing, there has to be bloodshed. The blood may be real, or it may be spiritual. But the Christian must suffer. The suffering may be separation of family, death, poverty, and even down to a total and ultimate reliance on God!

Thankfully, I haven’t been to that last part in my life. Not yet… Physically and to a point, needfully, God has blessed me. I may be low on what is inside my cupboards. But I eat every day. I have a roof over my head, and clothes on my back. I may not have a lot of money, but I make it through day to day just fine.

Here’s the deal: there are many people heading to church to hear the good news of the Gospel. These people are either in a rough place, or they are suffering. But someone has given them the idea, or they have had the idea, that God is a provider of wealth, and that God is going to deliver them from so and so.

That was never God’s plan! God’s plan was to reconcile the lost to Himself. God wanted His children in total communion with Him. He wanted, and wants to close the great divide that was and is caused by sin.

That’s the rich, prosperous life right there.

It’s not about lessening the pain, the suffering, the poverty that life has given us. We WILL have hardship in this life. It’s not going to be a smooth ride. (Just ask any parent who worries about their children!)  If it were then the image of Jesus carrying the cross through the streets of His Holy city is a false representation of what the future holds for the Christian.

WE SHALL SHARE IN HIS SUFFERING!

But the end of that suffering…is every bit worth it.

I STRONGLY suggest that if you are a God loving Christian, and you are in a church that teaches nothing but blessings, that you pick up the Bible and read it in it’s entirety. Not just the nice parts, but all the parts that your Pastor doesn’t cover. I also suggest that you watch movies about the Passion of Christ (Yes, watch Mel Gibson’s the Passion of Christ!) And just remember:  God never said it would be easy.

But yeah, it will be worth it!
