Don't Wait

As I continue to live in this world I continue to see others leave it. I sees some leave behind peace and others leave behind war. When I was little these things didn't matter a whole lot. I was child and the thought of not being alive wasn't even in the picture. I grew up, but still I seemed immortal, death was not something for me to worry about. Then I got a dose of reality that showed me I was not immune to death's touch, and it made me think about how I would leave and what I would leave behind.
     I can't help but think of the song "Shower The People" where he talks about showing people how you really feel about them. While your here, and their here, let people know you love them. Don't let squabbles over petty things keep you from expressing love if that is how you truly feel. Ask yourself these two questions. If you left, what would you leave behind? If someone left you, what would you do?
     Do you have a purpose, or maybe you used to and now you don't. Maybe your like me and you used to help your church and community, but now your so caught up in the fast pace of this world you can't seem to slowdown and do the things that really matter. Distractions keep you from having an impact on this world. Hurt feelings keep you from going to people and places that you know need help.
     Yet maybe what you used to do isn't what you can do now. Circumstances change and so can we if we decide to adapt and overcome. As long as we keep our hearts right we can find many ways to make positive contributions.
     Search for a purpose, even in the mist of trials and storms. Give of yourself even when you feel you have nothing. Show love even in the face of hate.
     I say these things for encouragement. Not as much to those who read this blog as it is meant to encourage myself. Like I said I feel like I used to make more positive contributions to this world, and I have slacked off in my adult years. I've let disappointments, anger, and fear keep me from living a purpose driven life. I pray I can find that purpose and do more. 
     These words above are maybe just ramblings. Maybe there thoughts from someone who has reflected on life, and maybe just rantings from a wanna be writer that thinks his words are meaningful. Nonetheless they are written not to speak of death and regret, but of life and fulfillment. While you have the time don't leave it up to chance. Do what you can while you can. Make the life that you live mean something. Help leave the world better than how you found it.

VISION 11/4/2020

Behold, I woke on Wednesday morning November 4, 2020. I was happy to be blessed by the Most High with another day. I headed out into the world and there was great sorrow for some and great joy for others. I had great joy because I knew how much grace had been shown to me by the Savior, and I thought maybe the others who were happy shared this same feeling and the ones who were sad were that way because they don't know the Savior. I found out that all of their feelings were based off the election of a new king, and nothing to do with blessings that they had received from their Heavenly Father.      I continued on until I came to a sight that amazed me. Their was a crowd of people that wanted to fight each other. They were evenly divided and some had various weapons and wore the armor of their chosen side. There was red and blue and letters and symbols like 'Q' and 'BLM'. None of them said anything that sounded like it came from the Holy Word, they quoted only from th

FAILURE (Personal)

Throughout my life I have had failures. Anyone that saw me try to play basketball, run track, and wrestle in high school can attest that my athletic career was a failure. I took test in school that I should have got an 'A' on if I had studied and applied myself, and the times I didn't prepare and didn't get an 'A' I consider it a failure. Even more so in the academic realm, I never finished my bachelor's degree in Engineering. Just years worth of credits sitting in limbo to remind me of my failure to finish when many people made sacrifices so I could achieve a higher education. As many know I have never been married and have no children, which I also consider to be a failure on my part. Most importantly, in my walk I have committed sins knowing that it separates my from my savior. Doing it in full knowledge of what Jesus did for me. I have been a failure at living the life that he wants me to live. I say these things to let you know that I understand failure

The Great Divide I

  I actually started on this post back in October 2020. It was all over the place, but I just recently looked at it and got it more focused.       So something has been on my heart for a while, and I have finally decided to write down a few words that will hopefully explain some things about my actions. First off let me state unequivocally that I believe in Matthew 5:43-45 (Love your enemies) and Matthew 22:37-40 (Love your neighbors). So if anyone ever needs help, be they stranger, family, friend, or even enemy, you have but to ask.       With that out of the way let me get to what this is about. I wrote a post called Fence Jumping a while back.   Check it out if you get a chance. I tried back then to let people know some things that are going on. Tried to explain why I'm choosing not to be as social of a person these days. I get the sense however that either people don't care or I haven't withdrawn myself enough f
