Football Anyone?

Football Anyone?

Cowboys and the Packers-

It’s football, not a fight;

Dear friends are sitting together

To make America right.

Both have different views

About how our nation should be-

Each stand for what they believe in:

To keep America free.

Yet what is freedom really?

To force our views on others?

To truly go against what we want …

And hate our sisters and brothers?

Hate is such a strong word-

But isn’t that what we do?

We look past the beliefs,

And hate people for points of view.

Couldn’t we instead be like Jesus,

And listen to their heart…

And make America great again

With a brand new start?

Begin with a game of football-

Or something that fancies your delight;

Become friends sitting together

To make America right.

Tick-Tock, Will It Stop?

Tick-Tock, Will It Stop?

Moments away before we turn a new year;

Walking with hope, ignoring our fear.

Will anything change? That’s up to me-

To make the right choices on how to be free.

I could easily sit in my pjs all day

ordering out; having my way…

as time leaks past… waiting for none-

everyone changes… but I am just one.

I’m safe with the choices that I make;

here in my pjs, there’s no give and take…

but what if I lived through another heartbeat;

Would I be happy? Would I be me?

What would I do? What choices surround?

Would I be lost? Could I be found?

Who would I follow? Who would I teach?

What are the tools with the world I would reach?

My blood would stay red; and as long as I have breath,

what good’s pajamas as long as there’s death?

Is it really freedom in my pjs I ignore,

life around the world, just outside my front door?

Moments away before we turn a new year;

walking with hope, ignoring our fear;

may I open my eyes and open my heart;

live like my Savior from the very start!

Jesus, help me improve lives… starting with mine;

I have to hurry up now before there’s no time.

Celebrate 😎

I passed my Eschatology test, praise God 💞

What Shall You Then Say?

It is Saturday. The elections are over and so is Thanksgiving. I’m preparing to take an eschatology test on Tuesday. Eschatology is the study of the end times events.
My textbook states on page 35 of ‘eschatology: a study of things to come’-

“in the past God spoke… Through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through him he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word” (Hebrews 1:1-3) 
I must ask myself “How am I reflecting Christ?”
My textbook continues:
Do not let many details of end-time prophecy take your mind off your friendship and relationship with this incomparable Christ. He loves each of us so much that he left his glorious abode, came down to live as one of us, and To die that we might be set free from the bondage of sin. What a wonderful, wonderful Savior!”
I am pondering how blessed I am. Yet, so many times I’ve been so frustrated with my husband (i’m not going to name his mistakes). During those times I spent too much time and energy on being mad at him; for a time that fire consumed me, it blinded me of what I am truly blessed with-my husband loves me! I know there are things I do that he hates, but what does it truly matter? We both have our differences, and we are not God. It’s so perfect that I am not God because I judge, hate, and criticize far too quickly! Yet God, he loves me …. knowing my mistakes. He wants me to forgive quickly because, despite what I am fool to believe, life is very short! Besides, I may learn something through trying to understand my husband. 
How dare I try to think that I am better than my husband; that I can be furious with him because of a mistake! Am I perfect? No. I don’t have enough fingers to count my mistakes. Perhaps instead of adding mistakes, I should use my hands to hold my hubby, to hug him for loving me the way I am. Jesus did. He stretched out his arms because of love. It’s why he came to this earth. Not to teach us to take sides, to build walls and wage war. Jesus came to give us love. 
The same Savior who made a way for me, will one day come back for me. Will he find me full of hate and criticism, full of judgment? Or will I mirror the same love and forgiveness Christ has shown me?
So I must ask myself, if I can’t trust God to help me forgive my husband now whom God gave to me, how Can I expect God to help me through to the very End?
Will I be with those in anguish, weeping, and gnashing their teeth (Matthew 22:13) because I allowed my heart to be full of hate, jealousy and fear? Or will will I be able to rejoice in Heaven because I was victorious because I choose to mirror Christ (Revelation 21:7)?
Jesus, we need you!!

Class tonight 

“Who in our community wants to be holy? We want to be helpful….but holy?”
–asked in my eschatology class ( the study of end times) tonight.
What are your thoughts?

Eschatology…Any Questions?


Tonight is my Eschatology class. Do you have any questions for my teacher? 💞

Find Me At The Library 

Find Me At The Library 
End Times? Is this the end of me?

What will I learn studying Eschatology?
I want my way, but I want His;

What way is the correct way to live?
I say I believe God, I better look at His Book…

And if I ever forget-take a second look.
Submission shows obedience, a Love so rare. 

What about my way? Does God even care?
My choices brought me trouble, I want to be set free!

I want to live in Heaven for an Eternity!
Yet, The End Times warns me the End is very near;

The Bible says if I really trust God, I don’t have to fear.
So each day I must make a choice, perhaps with every breath-

I choose to trust in Christ 

So I may win the Test!

Edited Version:
“Does the truth of Christ’s return energize our ministry as it did in the early church and the early twentieth century Pentecostals?” from Eschatology: A Study of Things to Come.
When I read this question to a friend, my answer was wanted. I don’t believe the truth of Christ’s return energizes our ministry as it did in the early church and the early 20th century Pentecostals for the most part because we have become too comfortable in our material world. Other countries are experiencing such a dependency on God. My cell phone with its games and apps won’t save me, nor will the comfort of my bed….even a fridge Full of fruits and Veggies and chicken while I add constant exercise won’t save me. They only reveal I’m looking for something. What will keep me company, what will comfort me, what will heal me.
I want to share with everyone that we can have surpassing peace, exploding joy, incomparable strength and all we need to face our days 💞 
Yet I am nervous. I know there are such severe trials that have left people hurting with what seems beyond repair. I wanna say I understand, but in reality I truly don’t because I’ve only walked in my shoes. I KNOW what God HAS brought me through….. And there were times that I thought God could do it differently and much better, but after a while I saw why He chose the directions He’s taken me. Those who know me see how I’ve grown. It is because I have trusted Christ, even when I didn’t want to. I have far to go as far as trusting Christ, but I love the change He’s given me. I want to see people healed, lives changed and wars ended 💕
