Easily Said Than Done …?
I Know …
It’s now Saturday, September 23, 2023, at 8:31 am. What do I know? The things that I have tried to accomplish in the past to no avail. Now I can discern, I can appreciate the well meaning of words telling me to do one thing or the other to overcome my hurt feelings. The truth? The hurt persists whether I let affect me or not. It is not that easy to do what you wish to do when it comes to feelings among human beings. But!
The Reality? It’s Simple & Easy …?
Only we humans love to complicate matters in the guise of reasonable deductions from all visible matters. But, nothing is like it seems to be. There are no reasonable anything when it comes to the bottom of everything we can see & touch & feel.
Ha! I Sure Sound Like I Am a Troublemaker, Don’t I? …
Maybe I am. Maybe I am not! Let’s have some fun with these dilemmas of mine, shall we? To begin with let’s not forget that I have been in existence for the long 84 years since my birth. It’s now Saturday, September 23, 2023, at 8:19 pm. Sleepy. Head for bed.
- Up on Sunday, September 24, 2023, at 2:04 am.
- Wondering again on what I am to do?
- Should I drink coffee with sugar?
- How can I relate or express myself without condescending or bias of any kind?
- How am to reconcile the ambiguity in the Scriptures?
- How can I ignore my concerns about money & the waste of supplies?
Ha! The Boogeyman Is After Me …!
Boogeyman otherwise considered to be my fearful concerns or unnecessary worries. Guess what? Just yesterday I bumped into Hebrews 13:5-6. Isn’t that amazing? I got the answer before all those fearful concerns on waking up a little while ago.
(5) Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] [Jos_1:5]
(6) So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me? [Psa_27:1; Psa_118:6]
O! But O Me! No Wonder Why? Why What? …
No wonder why my precious children worry about me. No wonder they handle me with ‘kid gloves’ never knowing what’s going to upset my apricot. Bless our hearts. But guess what again? Things are changing for the best like magic. Just now? I done forgot all those fearful concerns on my waking up a while ago. Silly me! Ah! My drink, I guess I’ll include the teaspoon of instant coffee & white sugar fearless of all said about the no nos of sugar & coffee. Good choice! Unto the task.
Allow Myself to Indulge in Nostalgia From Time To Time …?
From time to time? Ha! I do it most of the time every single day, that’s for sure. That’s part of what keeps me on top of that ‘Boogeyman’ daily poking me! But reminiscing on those beautiful moments helps me to keep hope alive and believe in life’s great possibilities ahead of me. Especially when the echo of those lovely words reverberate from within my being.
“You are not alone My Beloved thiaBasilia. I am with you whether you feel or sense My Presence. I am not an illusion or a figment of your imagination. I am your reality. I am with you whether I am far or near. I am always with you. Wake up! I am giving you the power to walk alone into the unknown that only I know. Fear not!” end of quote.
Indeed! I Fear Not! …
It’s now Monday, September 25, 2023, at 12:34 am, I am up in excruciating pain, drinking a coffee mixture hoping for relief. I have no idea what has triggered this pain but the thoughts of Covid-19 have been knocking in my mind. What would happen if I could be infected? Would I be forced to take the vaccine? What would happen if I refused to take that dreadful vaccine? Would I die and my children curse my Beloved Master?
- Ha! What’s the matter with me?
- I will not die!
- Get up!
- Drink water, you are dehydrated.
- Fix yourself the coffee mixture even if you haven’t done that for a long time because it had ceased to work.
- Guess what?
Now I Just Realized Why the Drink Ceased to Work …?
Yes, all things are fitting together as if by magic. That coffee mixture had become a routine for me even when the migraines had stopped troubling me, but I thought. I don’t know what I thought, maybe I thought I had discovered the sure cure for migraines and for pain in general. Silly me!
- Even so, that lovely voice within my being warned me a long time ago not to get stuck in doing things because those things had worked before.
- It warned me how the practical routines practiced at rampart were leading people into spiritual stagnation.
- Those routines were the chains strangling the unsuspecting human beings.
Wow! Indeed! All Things Are Fitting Together As If By Magic …?
No kidding! The best part? I am to be still, to wait, to write & publish all inspired words at any moment as I observe it all developing in the midst of my present living setup. Ha! Guess what again.
- Big smile brightens up my face even when I am not looking in the mirror, but!
- The pain has subsided as well as all those dreadful thoughts.
What Does It All Mean? …
It all means I am not deluded nor mentally ill. It means I am perfectly set up for the Almighty Creator & Master of my being to fulfill His purpose for my life, but! By no means this setup is a garden of roses just for me to enjoy. Rather, this setup is a garden of roses with the thorns to prick me anytime I stick my hand to mess in the bush. Thank goodness I am finally learning how to handle my little rose bush gifted to me for Mother’s Day by my darling Roxana—what a gift!
Bless My Heart! What On Earth Am I Talking About …?
Well? I am so blessed to live under the loving care of Diana & Mike, but! It has taken 10 long months for me to begin to make sense of all happenings in that last 10 months since I arrived back to the USA. How is it all making sense on this Monday, September 25, 2023 as I struggled to take care of the miserable pain on waking up? Ah! That lovely voice again! It recalled John 16:19-33. Let me quote it for such passage of the Scriptures says it all quite clear.
Yahushua knew that they wanted to ask Him, so He said to them, Are you wondering and inquiring among yourselves what I meant when I said, In a little while you will no longer see Me, and again after a short while you will see Me?
I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that you shall weep and grieve, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.
A woman, when she gives birth to a child, has grief (anguish, agony) because her time has come. But when she has delivered the child, she no longer remembers her pain (trouble, anguish) because she is so glad that a man (a child, a human being) has been born into the world.
So for the present you are also in sorrow (in distress and depressed); but I will see you again and [then] your hearts will rejoice, and no one can take from you your joy (gladness, delight).
And when that time comes, you will ask nothing of Me [you will need to ask Me no questions]. I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that My Father will grant you whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]. [Exo_3:14]
Up to this time you have not asked a [single] thing in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy (gladness, delight) may be full and complete.
I have told you these things in parables (veiled language, allegories, dark sayings); the hour is now coming when I shall no longer speak to you in figures of speech, but I shall tell you about the Father in plain words and openly (without reserve).
At that time you will ask (pray) in My Name; and I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf [for it will be unnecessary].
For the Father Himself [tenderly] loves you because you have loved Me and have believed that I came out from the Father.
I came out from the Father and have come into the world; again, I am leaving the world and going to the Father.
His disciples said, Ah, now You are speaking plainly to us and not in parables (veiled language and figures of speech)!
Now we know that You are acquainted with everything and have no need to be asked questions. Because of this we believe that you [really] came from God.
Yahushua answered them, Do you now believe? [Do you believe it at last?]
But take notice, the hour is coming, and it has arrived, when you will all be dispersed and scattered, every man to his own home, leaving Me alone. Yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me.
I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]. End of quote.
- Yes, indeed! John 16:19-33 is coming to pass exactly as it is written.
- The best part?
- Reading like testimonies as mine, the elect shall begin the journey back home where they belong.
- Hope. There is always hope!
Hey! It’s Raining! What A Good Sign! …?
It’s now Monday, September 25, 2023, at 3:27 am. Just as I decided to end the post I heard the sound of copious rain. Wow! It has been quite dry & hot for the last few days. In a way so it has been for us three, Diana, Mike, and me. Isn’t significant how the rain is falling on this moment of my appreciation of the happenings in our midst? Magic! Isn’t it? Bless my heart!
Until the next post, lov, thia.
