Impossible Is Not In My Vocabulary

2   Corinthians  1 : 18 – 20

But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea or nay.

For Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached amoung you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea or nay, but in him was yea

For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

I always try to make the impossible possible. If someone tells me it is not possible to accomplish a goal I have set for myself I am more than determined to prove them absolutely wrong. Anything is possible with willpower and determination and an absolute drive to make your mission attainable.

Someone once told me I would not win a prize at the fair. You had to tell a farmer how to contour his land on his farm for the proper drainage for his crops. I told the farmer the exact contour for his farms land and won the prize. The prize outcome was about listening to the description of the land and finding a quick fix to fix wet crop land for optimal return on your investment compared to your input to fix the problem.

Impossible does have some limitations depending on your health. Always keep your eye on the prize and if you want it bad enough make it happen. It takes a lot of patience and practice and persistence to make the impossible possible. If you want to accomplish things in life do not be afraid to ask for help and advice as this is how you learn to make the impossible possible.

Draw out a plan of what you want to get done and stick with it. Even small accomplishments each and everyday can ad up to big rewards in your life. Fixing and remodeling can sometimes seem unattainable until you start noticing the wonderful makeover of your home as time progresses. Your home can look like the magnificent home that is was originally.

Persistence and keeping your eye on the prize and pure determination is the key to making the impossible possible in your life.

Blogging can be your main job or a hobby it is what you want it to be for yourself and others to read. Blog with a positive and informed attitude. Be fair to yourself and others when you blog. Never use vulgar and disgusting words . Love what you do in life and then you will be very successful at what you do. I have a passion for writing and sharing my ideas with others.

If I happen to think about a certain topic I want to blog about I write the post at that moment in time or I write it down on a piece of paper for future reference. Blobbing is like a release of ideas coming together in a published format. Bloggers are good at expressing themselves and I have found that all of the bloggers that I have met to be very friendly , kind and outgoing people.

Lost and Found

Ephesians 2 : 12

That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the common wealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the World :

Luke 15 : 8 -9

Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth light a candle, and sweep the house and seek diligently till she find it ?

And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbors together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.

When we have lost something we get anxious and nervous and start turning our house upside down until we once again have found our long lost treasure. We feel a great sense of relief once we have found our lost item and have returned it to its proper place in our home.

church

 

We get lost in the shuffle of life now and then and forget the truly important things in our life. We do not want to lose our relationship with God without our relationship with God our relationships with other people suffer greatly. Go to church and surround yourself with others that want a long and lasting relationship with God in their lives. Belong to groups that bring out the best in you and support you along all of life’s many challenges. Make time for friends and family in your life and do not take them for granted as life is short so spend your days wisely and effectively.

Comfort people when they feel like they are lost so they feel like they have been found again. God is always their for you when you have lost your way in life. A sickness or an illness might be a away for you to realign your relationship with God and spread Gods good works to others that have an illness or lose in their life so that we may all feel like we have been found again for a higher calling or purpose in our life here on Earth.

Spring

Genesis  1 : 11

And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth : and it was so.

Proverbs  27 : 25

The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and the herbs of the mountains are gathered.

I love Spring as it is a time of rebirth and re-awakenings. The seed that rested over the winter months burst into life again. The blossoms on the trees burst open showing pretty flowers. New life is coming into the world as baby calves are being born and small chicks break out of their shells to get their first look at the world.

The rains come and wash away the dirt that is left on the ground during the winter months. The earth is looking clean and bright and the buds on the trees are opening up more and more to show off their true amazing beauty. Bees are getting ready to pollinate are trees and gardens.

holly hocks

Birds have come back from their migration to build new nest and start up their new families again. The male birds are singing their lovely songs to attract their new mate for the year. All the birds are in beautiful song and plucking up insects and worms from the ground to eat and to feed to their offspring.

20151027_142925

Spring is a time of year for all of us to have a rebirth and to regain a better relationship with God. We should study our Bible more and be more attentive to the needs of others. Pray for those that are sick , poor or homeless and help them out however you can.

I love to plant a garden and watch the seeds turn into healthy robust plants that I can eat and freeze and eat over the winter months. The corn fields are generally over knee high by the fourth of July. Remember that Spring is a time of renewal and rebirth for man, animals and plants.

Unreliable

Ecclesiastes  10 : 18

By much slothfulness the building decayeth: and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.

Deuteronomy  32 : 28

For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.

We always want to hire reliable people that we can trust to get the job done right the first time around. When you hire an unreliable person it is frustrating and annoying. I want things done in a professional and precise manner. I want a worker that I do not have to stand around and watch to make sure he is doing his job the way I would do it myself.

Years ago my Father hired a carpenter to put up ceiling tile. The carpenter cut around the light fixture instead of taking it down and making a small hole for the wires to fit through. My Father had to redo the ceiling tile himself. I had to tell a carpenter how to put a new windowsill in years ago.

An unreliable car can be beyond annoying. The car may not start when you need it or it never gets you from point A to point B. I sold that car and was glad to be rid of it. The car I sold was a 1987 car that I had bought used.

We need people in our lives that are reliable that we can always count on. God is always reliable and we can always count on God to be by our side in a crisis. God helps us when we need him the most.

red lighthouse

What does it mean to be reliable ? Being reliable means you will show up to work on time and get things done quickly and in  professional manner. You will be there when your friends,family, or relatives need you. There is no valid reason for people to be unreliable. God is reliable 24/7.

Cursing or Swearing

Psalms 109 :  17 – 18

As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him : as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.

As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.

One of the Ten Commandments is : Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.

Cursing will get you nowhere in life in fact it will set you back in life. Cursing or Swearing shows shows a lack of intelligence on your part for use of a better word that would express how you are feeling just as effectively or more so  than the swearword can. Do not take the name of our Lord thy God in vain for he is always listening and looking at what you are writing or saying to each other about him.

20150825_054109

I do not enjoy going to a movie that is using a swear word in every other  sentence. I do not enjoy talking to someone that is constantly swearing. I do not buy books to read that I knowingly know that they are swearing and cursing up a storm in the book. If you cannot write a book without swearing in it it is a huge problem as far as you respecting God. God found it easy and healthy to communicate with people without swearing or cursing.

Remember if you start swearing or cursing it will be harder for you to stop doing it because it actually will be like a garment that you cloth yourself with everyday. God and other people will lose respect for you. Always watch the words that come out of your mouth as you can never take them back again.

My Father once told me if you start swearing someday you will do it in the most inappropriate spot and feel totally embarrassed and ashamed of yourself. Remember you never want to take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. Speak to others and write to others without the use of swear words and it will take you far in life.

Triumph

         Genesis  4 : 7                                                                                                                                                                                                                         If thou doest  well, shalt thou not be accepted ? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire,  and   thou shalt rule over him.

2 Chronicles 14 : 11

And Asa cried unto the Lord his God, and said, Lord, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power : help us O lord our God; for we rest on thee and in thy name we go against this multitude. O Lord, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee.

Will you triumph with you relationship with God ? Will you stay away from the evil that knocks on your door and tries to influence your life and your values. If someone tries to lead you down the wrong path in your life avoid them at all cost your relationship with God is much more important then trying to fit in with a group of people that will only drag you down and harm you in the long run.

Choose your friends wisely as the old saying goes. You become exactly like the company you keep you start to believe in their values and develop their same mannerisms. Stand firm on your beliefs and values and you will triumph in life. Do not follow the multitude if you know they are wrong. Do not follow a herd of Elephants as you may be trampled and lose your values that make you the beautiful person that you are now.

crystal

 

You triumph in this life by spreading Gods good works and helping people in need. Be kind and considerate to people and animals. If you make a mess clean it up and don’t leave it for someone else to take care of. Have friends in your life that support you and have similar values to your own. Be firm on your Christian values and you will have triumphed with your relationship with God.

Death and Compassion

Isaiah 38 : 10 I said in the cutting off of my days, I shall go to the gates of the grave; I am deprived of the residue of my years.

Exodus 3 : 7 And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmaster ; for I know their sorrows.

Death comes like a thief in the night. You are never prepared for it and you do not know the day that your death will occur. Death does not care if you are rich or poor it treats us all equally and comes to all of us.

What you do while you are living on this earth affects many more people than you are even aware of. A simple act of kindness could save someones life or a kind word. If you are in the hospital a visit from a friend may give you the will to carry on and spread Gods wonderful works to other people that are in need. All of us are put here on earth to serve God in a way that he will be able to see us at our best.

20161214_161549

Do random acts of kindness for people that they least expect and make their day brighter. God always answers our prayers sometimes in ways that we are not aware of until we think it through for awhile. I have always grown closer to God when loved ones in my life have died. God is my  anchor and my salvation on earth. The lord came to serve not to be served and we should follow the same example. Always follow the Golden Rule.

I want to spread Gods good works while I can on earth. I want to visit the elderly in rest homes and the people in the Hospice program.  The elderly have spent  a lot of time teaching us through the years the least we can do for them is to visit them while they are on their final journey in life.

Think about what you can do to spread Gods good works to people. Give food to the food bank, clothes to Goodwill, money to the salvation army for kids Christmas presents and always listen to, be kind , considerate and carrying and giving to other people. Fill peoples lives with joy, hope, peace, love and compassion each and everyday that you are here on earth.

Closer to Thee

Deuteronomy   4 : 7

For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the Lord our God is in all things that we call upon him for ?

James  4 : 8

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners ; and purify your hearts, ye double – minded.

Getting closer to God is all about how you act around other people and reading the Bible and if you follow the teachings in the Bible. Be kind to one another each and everyday of your life. Help someone who is in need of a friendly voice , the elderly, the sick, the poor,and the downtrodden-ed. Remember you will be on the receiving end someday yourself and probably much sooner than you even imagined possible.

20150830_072601

Live each day of your life like it might be your last day on earth because it will be your last day on earth eventually. Ask yourself did I give help where it was needed today, did I make someone smile today, did I help someone carry their groceries out to their car and did I accomplish all of the goals that I could have today to help someone in need.

Visiting with people on a regular basis lifts up their spirits and yours. When someone comes into a room welcome them with open arms and they will feel welcomed and will return to the group again soon. Do not ignore people as it makes them feel uncomfortable and not welcome.  Treat people with respect and do not judge people for you have no idea whatsoever what they have been through or had to endure in their lifetime. People have had to deal with horrific and terrible things in their life through the years , so be kind, considerate and compassionate when it comes to your fellow man.

United We Stand Divided We Fall

Titus  1 : 4

To Titus, mine own son after the common faith; Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.

Galatians   3 : 28

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians   2 : 14

For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

Without Unity or a common cause a United Church could not exist. Members come to church with a common cause to Worship God and to have fellowship. By having people come together with a common cause a lot of good things can get done quickly and efficiently. Mission work gets done by having different individuals donate items and each person brings their individual talents to the table and the group has become as one in the common cause. Unity takes time and relationships must be established and grow in trust, faith, and understanding.

20151027_142913

People all excel in different hidden talents which can enhance the growth of their church. Some people are good at singing, reaching out to others in Christian Love, cooking or baking, book work and so much more.

If is church is divided on what they want to get done nothing will get done and the church will suffer greatly because of the divide. A good church leader can mend the divide. The leader will help them see the bigger picture which is to spread Gods good works. You cannot spread Gods good works without unity in your church.

I am glad that I belong to a United Church and that we have fellowship, mission groups, church breakfast, a wonderful pastor and we are all United in a common cause which is to spread Gods good works each and everyday of our lives here on Earth. May everyone find peace, hope, faith, love, grace, and joy in your life today and always.
