Second Civil War III

This is a final post on the subject and a final encouragement for change in our lives. Above is a map I found on a Reddit thread on alternative maps. This is supposedly after a second civil war. I just thought it looked interesting and others hopefully thought the same and clicked to read this post.
     You see I can only change me and you can only change you. When we all individually change for the better the country will change for the better. So one final thought from the lessons of Jesus that will hopefully at least give you pause in your life and help you have introspection about your daily walk.

     For this country to heal and receive all the blessings from above, we have to learn to forgive. We continue to hate each other because we cannot forgive. We don't forgive because we think that means the other person or people win if we do. We think that means that there will be no justice or repayment or consequence for actions if we forgive. We think about all of that instead of focusing on the truth that we forgive others not for them, but for ourselves. We do it so that we can stand before the MOST HIGH and pray knowing that he forgives us for what we have done.
     I encourage everyone in this country and around the world that we humble ourselves and think about what we have done. Think about how we are not perfect and no matter how great we are or how great our life is, we don't deserve the blessings that we have. We can't earn it and are no more deserving than anyone else. If you recognize this notion then you know that you are forgiven and should in turn forgive.
     For all of us there is probably a person, or group, or political party, or politician, or entire country, or religion, or famous person, or even family member that you have something against. Maybe they did wrong or maybe you just have something against them though they have done nothing to you. We can't hold onto that forever. We endanger our forgiveness from above because we cannot forgive here below.
     Only being concerned with winning on earth could cost you heaven.

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
