Life is good, most people say. Nevertheless, life has its difficulties; giving and taking the struggles of life wears one’s emotions out like clothing. There’s many reason why I have issue with life, one of which centers on keeping my spiritual being in control over my flesh being.
The bible states, “To love the world is to not have love for God” I love God and try to fulfill that principal. While most people live for the world and all it has to offer today. I struggle and have conflict with my personal interactions with people of this generation. Take for instance Japan recently experienced a devastating earthquake killing over 13,000 people and a property replacement cost of trillions of dollars. In addition, a nuclear power plant lost power, preventing the core reactor and rod containment pool, from receiving water, for cooling purposes. After several containment-building explosions, the power company was instructed to cap the expose reactors with concrete, but they didn’t. Millions of radioactive particles have and continues to pour into the air and seawater around the power plant. Bring dismay and health issue to the region, a month after the original earthquake. If the Japanese Gov. and Sr. Management of the power plant would listen to good advice, many people would not have died or going to die as a result of their negligent behavior. I struggle with life where sound advice is not acted upon costing many lives. This is the reason I dislike the world.
Just like the U.S. Gov, voted to slash some $38B dollars from the 2010 budget coming from social programs depriving the underserved people the necessities of life. Let me identify one of the underserved people, successful farmers who have no claims, and a rebate for insurance premiums already subsidized by the federal government. Now, over the years, America Farmers, the ones doing well, receive subsidizes for insurance and a rebate for the balance? What other rewards have they received over the years? Well, they still paid taxes unlike GE who in 2010 paid no Fed Tax on some $14B in profit. What kind of “Tiger Blood” is the Fed Gov drinking, the best kind.
The world is not right; I seek a newest of life, free from fear, lack, and worry. I seek to transform my mind from the vision that the world projects and contribute to serve the better good. Not serving what my ego or the egos want but lead by a spiritual life. The life connected to God and Jesus Christ. A life proven through trials and testing of faith by placing my fleshly desires on the cross that Jesus delivered through salvation. This lifestyle is not one the world seeks. The world wants people to engage in discord and play out drama-filled interactions to develop strife between cultures and each other.
I dislike the world and all it has to offer. I don’t like discord and drama. I know this world will end some day. Until then the songs of my heart practices, faith in a greater awareness of what life offers. Not someone or something to bow down too for if my back is straight; I’m not bowing to anything or one.
I have a solid perception that the sun does not raise in the east and sets in the west. The sun is stationary we circle around it. The sun is always shinning when the earth is covered with clouds. Just like my heart always pumping not stopping. The same way God is always listening and knowing our every movement.
I want to know more about how to stop sinning. How to keep my spirit strong when circumstances raise that God is with me. How do the Holy Spirit, God, and Jesus know when exercise redeeming grace? I guess we just need to believe and stop asking why and just obey and be thankful that we have reached the place of knowing God is compassionate to restore us through the work of Jesus Christ.
