Yes, I See You

Yes I see you.  And isn’t that what you crave, to be seen.  Yeah, you.  The one with the beard shaped so carefully.  The one with just the right clothing.  The one who thinks that the way he looks and what he owns carves him a large portion.  Yeah. . . I saw you.

You have plans for the old man you will be.  Great boasting of what you were.  And when sickness and health comes near, you will “face it like a man”.

But I also see what you don’t see.  I see a man sniveling and groveling before the Most High God.  Or else I see a man spitting venomous hatred at the living God, because God does not respect the majestic nature of this one who stands before him.  Yeah. . . I see you.

Do you think this only applies to the self aggrandizement of a man?  I see you, the woman who has social etiquette down to an exquisite fine art.  I see the child who has everything he wants, except a desire for patience or obedience.  I see the drunkard who’s proud of his ability to kill himself.  So many who are proud of their mind.  Oh you millions of misguided ungodly folk, yes I see you!

I see you in the here, and I see you in the there.  How is it you only have eyes for today?

A Bear of a Time

Psychology only tells you what’s wrong.  It may or may not be able to identify how the wrong got there.  But it has no strength to help you defeat what’s wrong inside of you.

You’re in the woods.  You see the grizzly bear.  You know he sees you.  You know you’re about to die.  What good does all that knowledge have, if you can’t destroy the grizzly bear?  You need a gun, not knowledge.

Christ is the power to overcome your troubles.  He not only knows what’s wrong, and knows how it got there, he knows how to fix you from the inside out. 

Turning to psychology won’t help you.  Turning to religion won’t help you.  Turning to pacifiers of every sort, won’t help you.  Turning to the Living God’s Holy Son in prayer can help you.

No “Crap” Can Help!

Yes, I’ve decided to use the word.

With all the “Crap” that man imagines, to heal and to make life valuable, Christ Jesus is the answer.

I testify with all the strength of the Living God, Jesus’ strength is endless.  There is ZERO shame in me for saying so.  Is there too much shame in you to believe it?

You have faith to go to the doctor.  You have faith to believe in the pills he gives you.  You have faith to lie on a table and let him cut you to pieces.  Do you have the faith to believe that simple message I just wrote?

You will consider your life every moment of the day.  You will look at all your problems and all your troubles.  By some fairy tale hope, you think that man can heal you.  But I am telling you an absolute truth; Christ can heal you from the inside out.

He may not heal your ailments.  He may not take away all your troubles.  But he will teach you how to have joy in the midst of them.  He will take your tiny belief and make it an absolute fact.  You will come to believe that you will never die again.  You will come to believe that you are loved by the very one who can never lie.

He will teach you how to use all your difficulties for his Great and Magnificent Glory.  He will show you how to perceive this world from his point of view; love for His Heavenly Father, was the strength that allowed him to endure the cross for your sake.  He will teach you how to have that same strength.  He will show you how to love him.

Believe and pray.  Read his Holy story in the Bible.  Commit to Christ and He will commit to you.  That is the only release that is offered to mankind.  Who will take it and live life to the fullest?
