THE HOLIDAYS WERE TIGHT, AND WE MANAGED TO SQUEAK THROUGH IN A FASHION. THERE WERE MANY THAT WENT WITHOUT, BUT FAITH HAS KEPT US ALL GOING.
I RECEIVED A WONDERFUL MESSAGE THAT SAID THAT FAITH PRODUCES PERSISTENCE AMONGST OTHER THINGS.
THIS REALLY STUCK AS MY FAITH IN WHAT I DO HAS KEPT ME GOING FOR MANY YEARS AT THE EXPENSE OF EVERYTHING I HAD.
OUR HUMANITY IS WORTH IT. OUR PLANET IS WORTH IT. A LONG TIME AGO I MADE A COVENANT WITH MOTHER TO HELP HER AND HER KIDS. I AM KEEPING THAT PROMISE.
BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS, OPTIMISM WAS HIGH THAT THE TRUST WOULD HAVE RELEASED THE FUNDS FOR THE START OF THE PROJECT SIDE, AND THEY DID.
BUT THE HOLIDAYS TOOK THEIR TOLL AND THE SENIOR BANKERS THAT WERE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE TRANSFERS WENT AWAY TO ENJOY THE TIMES AND LEFT US HIGH AND VERY DRY.
I COULD NOT DO WHAT I INTENDED TO DO FOR SO MANY THIS CHRISTMAS, AND THAT HAD TO BE PUT OFF TO THE NEW YEAR.
I GUESS THERE IS A REASON FOR EVERYTHING, BUT THIS WAS A BLOW THAT WAS HARD TO TAKE AS SO MANY OUT THERE REALLY NEEDED A HELPING HAND TO GET THEM THROUGH AND I HAD TO HAUL OUT THE KLEENEX. IT WAS TOUGH. STILL IS.
BUT, I HAVE FAITH THAT WE WILL GET THROUGH SOMEHOW, AND BEGIN THE WORK AHEAD OF US ALL.
I RECEIVED THIS WONDERFUL INSIGHT FROM RICK WARREN. IT RESONATES DEEPLY AND WHY I STARTED WITH FAITH ABOVE.
By Rick Warren — Dec 29, 2015
“We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.” (2 Corinthians 4:8-9)
Faith unlocks the promises of God and it shows us the power of God and it turns dreams into reality and it gives us the power to hold on in tough times.
But faith doesn’t always take you out of the problem. Faith often takes you through the problem. Faith doesn’t always take away the pain. Faith gives you the ability to handle the pain. Faith doesn’t take you out of the storm. Faith calms you in the midst of the storm.
I remember reading the stories of Corrie ten Boom, a young Dutch Christian who helped many Jews escape the Holocaust before being sent to the Nazi death camps.
She said that the people who lasted in those camps were those who had the deepest faith. Why? Because faith gives you the power to hold on in tough times. It produces persistence.
Study after study has shown that probably the most important characteristic you could teach a child (and that you need in your own life) is resilience. It’s the ability to bounce back. It’s the ability to keep going.
Nobody goes through life with an unbroken chain of successes. Everybody has failures and mistakes. We all embarrass ourselves. We all have pain. We all have problems. We all have pressures. The people who make it in life have resilience.
Do you know how many times I’ve wanted to resign as pastor at Saddleback Church? Just every Monday morning. I go, “God, it’s too big. It’s too many people, too much responsibility. I’m not smart enough. What am I supposed to say to that many people? Get somebody else who can do a better job than this.”
Yet God says, “Keep going.”
Where do you get the resilience to keep going? Faith. It’s believing God could do something any moment that could change the direction of your life, and you don’t want to miss it, so you keep going.
DO NOT FORGET THAT FEAR IS AN ILLUSION. WHY? BECAUSE FEAR IS BASED ON SOMETHING THAT HAS NOT HAPPENED YET, SO YOU GET TO STRESS ABOUT SOMETHING IMAGINARY. THAT IS INSANITY.
STAY AWAY FROM FEAR. FAITH, HOPE AND CHARITY ARE A BEAUTIFUL TRIO OF THE RIGHT STUFF AND MUCH BETTER. WALK ON.
12/28/15 – Status Update
Although it has already been YEARS, we are yet still waiting. However, the final denouement is in process, as many or most required things have already taken place. “IT” has happened for many but hasn’t happened for you and I; it simply has not gotten to be our turn yet.
I do want to take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you Happy Holidays and a very, very Happy New Year. As I am constrained regarding release of information, let me simply leave you for now with the following:
The signs are all there if you know where to look. Understanding can’t come just reading a book.
Open your mind; see not just what you’re told. But, explore on your own like panning for gold.
New wealth will be yours – soon for receiving. Pain for some others results from deceiving.
Changes in the world soon will be told. For all of the truths are ‘bout to unfold.
You’ve learned by now what’s left to do. So prepare yourself and do follow-through.
Trust in your instincts, and do not feel strange. All of the signs DO point to a really Big Change. Blessings, AH
GREAT INSIGHT AND GOOD ADVICE…WELL SAID AH, AND IF I MAY ADD….
TIS NOT OFTEN SUCH A BREEZE BLOWS THROUGH PLACING THE FOOT IN THE OTHER SHOE
GENTLY IT NUDGES THE MIND HERE AND THERE CLEARING THE COBWEBS BOTH DARK AND SO FAIR
DEAR SNUFFLES SAYS LOOK NOT ONLY BOTH WAYS WEARING HIS COAT OF LONG RAINBOW DAYS
MIGHTY DISCERNMENT PLAYS SUCH A KEY ROLE ALLOWING TO GLIMPSE THE ROOT OF THE SOUL
WITH SUCH GOOD MANNERS THE MIND WILL LOOK AND KNOW THE TREASURES THE CABAL RIGHT TOOK
FROM YOU AND FROM ME WITH SUCH ASTOUNDING GLEE LIKE PEBBLES DISAPPEARING NEATH BLUE SHINY SEA
NO MORE AH SAYS WITH A GLEAM IN HIS EYE THE BIG PLAN IS NOW HERE SO LOOK TO THE SKY
THE DIVINE PLAN IS HERE AND NOW AND ABOUT TO TAKE OFF WITH GREAT SPIRIT (NO PUN).
THE GREAT ONES, THE OLD ONES, THE HOSTS AND THE BOYS AND GIRLS UPSTAIRS ARE ALL ANTICIPATING THE RISE OF HUMANITY OUT OF THE DARK TIMES.
WE ARE ALL ABOUT TO GET TO THE WORK AHEAD OF US. MUCH WORK, BUT MUCH FUN TOO. WAR WILL BE A THING OF THE PAST.
BY THE WAY, DID YOU KNOW THAT WAR IS ILLEGAL? IT IS TRUE. ES SENT IN THIS SNIPPET AND IT EXPLAINS IT.
THE KELLOGG-BRIAND PACT of 1928 outlines PEACEFUL RESOLUTIONS AS A RULE OF LAW. It was signed by the US and many plenipotentiaries (see link).
This means that all wars since then have been illegal, and all military personnel engaged in war have a lawful right to stand down and refuse service in the military.
It is not only their moral duty, but their lawful duty to do so. Any military personnel continuing to engage in combat is a criminal act. It is illegal, as it breaches the Kellogg-Briand Pact.
AND SNUFFLES FINALLY GETS A GIRLFRIEND.
I found this blond for Snuffles. She was willing to do a photo opp. Check her out! Great set of teeth for sure. But buyer beware… I think she’s a gold digger! Blessings, G
WE WILL HAVE THE BACONATOR CHECK HER OUT. GOLD DIGGER OR NOT, SHE’S CUTE AND SNUFFLES LIKES HER AND SAID HE WILL DIGGER GOLD
BUT THERE IS A SIMPLE WAY TO MINIMIZE OR GET RID OF THE RADIATION WE INGEST THROUGH OUR FOODS.
GO GET SOME BENTONITE CLAY AND EAT IT FOR ONE (GOOGLE IT), AND FOR TWO, WASH AND SOAK YOUR FOOD IN IT LIKE YOUR VEGGIES (NOT THE ONES IN OFFICE).
THE CLAY IS EATABLE BY THE WAY, AND GETS RID OF HEAVY METALS IN YOU. BUT WASHING AND SOAKING YOUR VEGGIES…
GETS RID OF THE MAJORITY OF THE RADIATION IF NOT ALL THAT HAS BEEN DEPOSITED ON THE FOODSTUFF. (MISS PHIPPS!…GO BUY STOCK IN CLAY…)
THERE HAVE BEEN A TREMENDOUS NUMBER OF RUMORS IN RESPECT THE RV AND THE RESET.
MANY FORMS OF LOGIC AND PAST HISTORY HAS DECIDED WHICH DIRECTION THESE RUMORS TAKE,
BUT THE CURIOUS THING IS THAT ALL HAVE THE SAME FLAVOR NOW AS THOUGH THE UNDERLYING SUBSTRATE REACHED OUT AND TOUCHED EVERYBODY.
BESIDES THE OBVIOUS “RV TONIGHT AT 12:01” STUFF, THERE IS A GREAT MEASURE OF TRUTH IN ALL THE THREADS AS THE CULMINATION OF MANY MANY YEARS OF PATIENCE IS COMING TO FRUIT.
THERE ARE NOW MANY MANY TRILLIONS POISED TO START GIVING A HELPING HAND TO OUR HUMANITY,
AND WE ARE BLESSED TO BE LIVING IN THIS TIME RIGHT NOW WHEN IT ALL UNFOLDS. IT WILL BE WONDROUS.
MAY YOU HAVE THE PEACE, JOY AND PROSPERITY YOU DESERVE, ENJOY THESE LAST DAYS OF THE YEAR OF FOUNDATION, AND USHER IN THE YEAR OF PLENTY WITH GREAT GUSTO!
GOD BLESS AND HAPPY TRILLION NEW YEAR!
IN SURE GRATITUDE.
LOVE AND LIGHT IN OUR SERVICE ZAP
