_______________ SIN ________________   Leave a comment

Intentional Sin is an unrighteous act, committed by someone who is aware that such behavior is wrong.
*For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwells no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwells in me. (Romans 7:18-20)
Untrolled Sin is the lack of self-control over wrongful acts committed, despite having the knowledge to know better than to do such things.
Self- Discipline
Self-discipline is needed to control our weakness: anger management, behavior management, health habits, self- abuse, and the abuse of others.

How Do We Find The Source To Solve Such Problems?
Self- Abuse
Engaging in unprotected sexual acts with different or various people, put a person at risk of contracting infectious and sexually transmitted diseases.
Poor Eating Habits
An unhealthy diet of food and drinks, can lead to poor health. Poor health, weaken the body defences to fight against germs that causes sicknesses.
The Complete Person is Body Mind and Soul
*What? Know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own? (1 Corinthians 6:19)
Good Health
When the whole person is in good health, the body will function properly for a great number of many years, because the aging process is very slow.
* And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper. (Psalm 1:3)
*Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers. (3 John 2)

The End Results of Sin Is Destruction
* Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death. (James 1:15)
* For the wages of sin is death; but the gift, of God is eternal life. (Roman 6:23)

Never Assume Anything   Leave a comment

An assumption about a situation is likely to result in poor judgment, that can cause embarrassment, or harm, due to misunderstanding.
When the word “we” is misunderstood to mean “us” as in a couple
A man comes home on a Saturday, at noon, and hurriedly takes the luggage from a closet, and frantically, start knocking things around while putting items in the luggage. His partner hears the noise and runs out of the bedroom, sees the living room in a mess, and ask, “Why, are you packing?” He answered, “We are leaving town!” His partner assumes, “We” means “Us” as in relation to the two of them as a couple, grabs two of the luggage and begin packing them, excited to be leaving with him.
After the luggage were packed, the partner, returns to the living room and find all the other luggage gone, and the man was not there. Standing alone with a luggage in each hand, and hearing the words like a broken record of a sad song, that won’t stop playing, echoing “We are leaving town!” The words are stuck in the partner’s head, and all the emotions a human being can feel in such a situation are present within the body, mind, and soul, of such a person.
There were clues that the partner should have seen, that would have led to asking more questions that could have avoided being caught off guard.

Fear Without Evidence   Leave a comment

No one or anything should be condemned, without justification of evidence.

Fear without justification of evidence, has condemned those who were innocent of the things they were accused of, and caused them harm. God help us to overcome fear of the unknown. Teach us to know what is right. Your wisdom and knowledge is greater and is above all others. Therefore, power is in your hands; and condemnation is justified according to your judgment.

Bull Snake: Bite is not venomous
Food consumption: The bull snake consumes birds and birds eggs, ground squirrels, gophers, rabbits, and rodents. The bull snake like others, have been falsely accused of being a threat that could cause harm to others. And the need to prevent a threat against its species, without evidence, they have been condemned without justification, and killed because of fear. The purpose of the bull snake is a great asset to help protect the food exchange, from the destruction of animals, that destroy seeds and plants.

This is the bull snake that drove away the field mice, and the gophers from our yard, that were pests; and stopped the big ugly mounds of dirt made by the gophers on our lawn. We no longer see any mice around. When I told my husband about this snake, he went in search of it, to get rid of its existence. I pointed out to him, all of the good things the snake had done for us. After considering the evidence, he agreed that the snake should stay. And he warned me, that snake is going to get bigger. My response was, he will still be the same. It is an innocent harmless, living creature.

Perhaps, this is the same belief, those who fear others, believe they should be removed from society, because of their appearance, and not the contributions they made to make our society a better place for all people and animals to live in peace.

The Mirror of My Soul   Leave a comment

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.

Amen

Exercise Is Not Enough   1 comment

Exercise Is Not Enough

“My holy of holies is the human body; health, intelligence, talent, inspiration, love, and absolute freedom-freedom from violence and falsehood, no matter how the last two manifest themselves.” Anton Chekhov

When we view the statement above and the thoughts of the Apostle Paul on the human body, we can agree that exercise alone, is not enough to qualify for complete fulfillment of a healthy body; that would include the mind and soul within each individual.

The Apostle Paul clearly believed that there are benefits for the body through exercising, but more is needed to fully benefit the whole person.  Paul stated “For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.” 1Timothy 4:8 (King James Version)

Spirituality plays an Important Role in Good Health

“Look to your health; and if you have it, praise God, and value it next to a good conscience; for health is the second blessing that we mortals are capable of; a blessing that money cannot buy.”_Izaak Walton

Health is something that is very valuable and should never be taken for granted.  We should do all that is possible to take good care of our health. And encourage others to do the same. Prayers are always needed for God’s intervention, being that he is the one who designed our body.

In order for a person to be complete and to have a healthy body, a healthy diet, and a healthy mind is needed, along with a good exercising program.  When a person only exercise, eat unhealthy foods, and have no spiritual consciousness they will tire quicker, and their stress level will be higher.

Be blessed in health and happiness,

Keeping Your Business Safe   Leave a comment

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: to shew forth thy loving-kindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night, Psalm 92:1, 2 (K.J.V)

Note: Giving thanks to God and singing praises inspires hope, and produces courage, determination, and strength. It also, gives us comfort and peace. Those who possess find satisfaction. Surveys have been done with positive results for prayer regarding those who pray frequently.

There are times when every individual need to empty their mind to someone without having their personal business being publicized to others who can make things worse by spreading false rumors.

Prayer works for me.

Flesh vs. Spirit: the War Within   Leave a comment

Whether trying to maintain a desired weight, remaining faithful to a spouse or reaching a goal, temptation exists – causing its victim to make a choice and sometimes several choices. When the individual feels guilty and want to do good by correcting mistakes, but finds themselves powerless against the temptation, the battle is within -thereby, causing the individual to become imbalanced. The flesh and the spirit are now at war.

Paul, the Apostle, clearly understood these things. He stated, ” For I know that in me [that is, in my flesh] dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but  the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.” Romans 7:18-20.

No human being, is empowered to live above temptation. But, we can find ways to control our fleshly desires, and to reach our goals. It is too difficult to fight these battles alone – to do so, often leads to self destruction. For more information, I recommend this book to inspire courage, hope and strength.
