From within the mirror of my soul, God sees my complete makeup of who I am. He hears
my unspoken words, because he reads my thoughts. Man judge me by my outer appearance, because he can not know me as God, know me. Man condemn me, for the things that God find to be justified of me. Man hates me, for the things God Love about me.
There is no secret or thought, I can keep from him. And there is no secret place I can dwell in to hide from him. Wherever I go, he is there. Therefore, he is forever present with me.
Father in heaven,
When I fall on my knees before you, please show me your grace and mercy. I need to know that sin, will not cause you to withhold the answer to my desires and needs that I request from you. In my life, where I am weak, strengthen me, lead me in the way of righteousness, and guide my path with your wisdom. God help me to do the things that pleases you. Help me to feel compassion, empathy, and sympathy for others.

And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
And all these blessings shall come upon thee and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
Deuteronomy 28: 1,2 (K.J.V)
Note: As with all Valuable things that comes with a price tag, so does God’s blessings.
There are conditions that God requires before he hands out his blessings. Some of us are too busy meddling in other people’s affairs that we are allowing our own requirement to go unchecked; flaws in the fabric of our own lives are cause for not receiving God’s blessings.
As parents, we don’t reward our children with gifts when they disobey us. Neither does our Father in Heaven reward us when we disobey him.
In times of tragedies, and loss of loved ones, we seek for answers and for strength to deal with the pain that causes discomfort. We know that within our souls, only our creator can comfort us, and give the needed strength within us, to enable us to rise up! And deal with the situation that we have encountered, victoriously. Each individual have to find the courage and strength to continue to live their lives at their own pace. Not everyone deal with tragedies and losses the same as others. Some people need a longer time and a slower pace.
Some ask, Why?
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 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.
Ephesians 6:10, 12
God holds accountable those who inflict pain and cause the death of another individual without justifiable cause such as in the case of self-defense, or to save another individual’s life. He will not allow such individual to go unpunished by his own judgment and time.
He also, will judge those in leadership positions who are using politics and passing laws and are using their influences that are not helping to better the nations, but are rather destroying its people and separating them.
When a tragedy happen, each one of us should ask ourselves, what can I do to make this world safer?
As a parent, we should ask, am I being the parent that I need to be?
Am I living the example for my children that will help them to be respectful to others and to value the life of others?
We live in a society that is addicted to violence. It is up to us to teach our children, and other children not to commit wrongful acts. It is time for all parents to work together, with teachers, and with other leadership individuals, to help our young people avoid violence.
A young person should be able to have the knowledge to make a righteous decision, about what they view. A song, or a movie, or book that portrays a violent act, is no cause for anyone to commit those acts upon another individual. Acting is what it is! It is not real! The people are entertainers, who are paid to do their job. They don’t commit the acts of the individuals they are portraying.
Case in Point:
The Bible is filled with violent acts committed by young and old. Those things were recorded for our learning, for the purpose that we shouldn’t commit them. And to know that those things displeases God, and to expect his punishment.
God is to us what the potter is to clay that is molded into beautiful vessels. He has the wisdom to make us better. There are times when our lives become marred with unrighteous behavior toward God, and toward other people. Somewhere along the way, we stopped caring about how we treated others, and became selfish, arrogant and lifted up in pride.
We lost our human-feeling of kindness, respect for ourselves and for others. We forgot what it feels like to be lied on, to be cheated out of something that belonged to us, to be treated equal with others, we forgot how to love and how to like. And developed a lack of caring.
Such individuals have ended up in a prison they built for themselves – that is one of sadness, shame and loneliness. They became angry with themselves, and developed hate toward others. Therefore, the spirits of destruction controls their bodies and souls. They have become a danger to themselves and to society. The demons living within such individuals hold them in a prison of madness, one of which they can never escape without the power of God.
*Demons are evil spirits. They have no conscious. Their purpose is to destroy.
Scripture: In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me. Psalm 120:1
“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee. ~ Psalm 21:8
When we talk less and listen closely to things that are published, we can gather lots of information, including some negative things that are being said about us. Some of the talk that is “heard through the grapevine,” comes from people who we discover to be our enemies. That’s when we have to use our knowledge to determine how we want to deal with those who hate us.
Hating those who hate us is too great a burden to bear. But, we know we can’t ever turn our back to our enemies. We have to watch and pray, and always be prepared to defend ourselves with a sound and righteous plan. Our enemies are always plotting and looking for ways to destroy us.
The enemy doesn’t care how he or she destroys. Their only purpose is to win. They have no remorse. They see their accomplishment as a victory. An enemy can’t be a friend. That would be impossible.
