Covid-19: A Time to Reflect on Life.

To Prepare or Not to Prepare

To Prepare or Not to Prepare

(Or should an alarm be sounded)

There are many tangible and intangible warfares taking place in our world today. When I pray and study the Bible, I get a deep impression about the state of our world that I wonder how our future generations will make it.

I strongly believe that the earth has life and voice of her own- (See the book of Romans 8:22 in the Bible). She has been convulsing, sending us warning signs that she is tired of the horrible attitudes of mankind towards her. The vileness is suffocating her, and so, she can no longer breathe comfortably. Restlessness has taken her over, to the point, where she behaves worse than a pregnant mother who is about to give birth to her baby; the pangs are beginning to consume her.

The world system may take charge over terrorists, but not without a fight. For the nations suffer at the hands of terror. A new and embedded terrorism that will trigger the hearts of mankind to give up all hope, and to pine away in dark silence.

Ah, who is that I hear, fanning the wind in the West; to pick up the seeds that have been planted in the minds of fearless and fierce souls. Tell me, high intelligence of the West, do you have any solutions? For I see nothing in your world to give hope. You prepare your people to hate the very world that they should love- your sinister complots continue to wipe out the souls of the righteous.

Now tell me West, again, is that the way you’re leading us to be like washed up debris– our great cities, our structures taken away to the wrong places? And by the year 3000 and beyond, our artifacts would be found by vile men whose kisses will still defile the earth who has no regard for high empires of philosophical entities, education, scientists, celebrities, money, etcetera.

Ah, money, it will be useless. We willed the evil, but we are not paying attention. We see it, but we are like the ostrich; she is woefully forgetful or ignorant.

Then I lifted my eyes to see the elements of spiritual warfare taking form-

Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood; but, against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

So to prepare, I say yes.

I am preparing my spirit by praying and studying God’s word, to be careful that I listen to the Holy Spirit because many fake spirits are speaking today and to help at least one soul. Wise people win souls unto righteousness!

By observing the signs of the time, my soul is in constant preparation like the ant; storing for the harsh season. Like the snake, keeping a watchful eye; like the dove, causing no harm; like the lioness, ready to pounce at the trumpet’s announce. Are you preparing? Remember you cannot live this life without the savior, we all need the Light of the world.

My act of contrition: Forgive me Father, my bad thoughts- I wish that the typhoon set to rage an atmospheric war on a nation, would spin in another direction with determined mind sweep away the darkness of the EVIL acronym: emotional viral disease incubating lifes, into the abyss.

Oh, how I wish, that I could destroy the letters of my alphabet that show me words and meanings used for deceptive voices to destroy the good which can bring hope.

There are no powers among the greatest psychic, prophet, priest, guru, or spiritual eye of today who can give the answers to satisfy souls who are leaping blindly into heavy rings of fire-

Shout to the psychologist, the psychiatrist, and all other scientist:

I will no longer enjoy the rising of the sun;

If the continuum of your discourse cannot find an answer;

For the ailing spirits of my children, and my children’s children, who may no longer embrace words of freedom but live to see the hatchlings of evil.

To prepare, yes, watch the signs, they are everywhere.

To prepare, yes, for there is hope beyond the minds and hearts of mankind.

To prepare, yes, just be prepared.

No Satisfaction

(Random from my journal -A season of backsliding October 2014)

No Satisfaction

Today for the good part of the morning, I felt angry and frustrated, giving heed to all the negative thoughts encircling my mind. The negative energy I was creating was only fueling my discomfort about how easy it is for others to misunderstand or twist what you meant for good. Have you tried helping out a friend in a situation- giving them your time, your space, and your energy?  Even at the last minute, you run for them-you know; like a-go-for!  They get you so involved in their world that when you least expect it, your own personal world is crumbling piece by piece, as if bitten by some type of rodent. I am surrounded by rodents: the squirrels who love burying their nuts in my garden; the field rats or mice that the wild cats kill and leave, soon to foul up the air; and then there are the  beavers down by the big canal whose job is to chew on the bark of young trees, also attempting to chew on the bark of the old trees, but I guess chewing on the old trees can be detrimental to their time and energy.

Nothing satisfies I kept on saying out loud in my mind. Then it came out like a whisper under my breath, nothing satisfies.I mean nothing-no man, no sex, no club, no education- squat, nil, zero.  A very unusual mantra because I said it over and over again. I was very upset (saying so quite mildly). I didn’t want the children around me to hear my muttering as I continued my self-condemning,  nothing satisfies.  I was just about to raise my voice to say something derogatory in light of how I was feeling.  The horrible F word was forming, ready to be fueled out. But the gentle touch of a child almost made me jump out of my brown, patchy skin…

Then I said: ‘Forgive me Father for I have sinned.’

Now I  have to love my enemies.

Let Me Be Convicted

Light breaking through the darkness

Let me be convicted

I want to listen to what will challenge

my thoughts, my heart, and my soul

I will embrace the conviction

that will bring the good out of me

I choose to be convicted

by the one who convinces me that His love

has redeemed me from the shackles set to imprison

my heart

His conviction may seem bitter at first

but after proper digestion of truth

It will be good to walk in renewed strength

To walk fully exonerated on the pathway of righteousness

I want to be convicted-my pain will be used for His gain.
