Happy Thanksgiving

When we take the time to consider all the blessings we have to enjoy right now and have received this year, it can give us a proper perspective about the Christmas holiday and the expectations surrounding it.  When you consider yourself full and content already, The Lord can easily be the focus that He should be and giving be done in proper motivation.  Take time this Thanksgiving to be truly thankful, full and content.   Let the holiday season be ritual with reality.

Keep Sailing,

Every Thought Matters

I cannot see for myself the deceptions that I fall under, the ones that specifically are taking me away from Gods plan.  By definition if you are deceived you don’t know it.   I rely on the Lord to reveal them to me(He always does).  I also cannot see the deceptions up ahead, the planned attacks from the kingdom of darkness(that very organized invisible system and army that deceives the whole world) to neutralize my part in God’s plan(essentially to knock me out of the game).  Our current lessons have been a very strong warning that we must actively remove ourselves from cosmic influence (stop hanging out with wrong thinking) and watch for the “little foxes” the small thoughts, the subtle, friendly attack of cosmic thinking (often brought to us by unsuspecting friends or family). I know I can trust the Lord in bringing me the warning before the attack comes. 

It can appear as though a little cosmic dabble will do no harm; a little whining, a little complaining, a little unchecked thinking, just a little time with the wrong person.  It can’t hurt, right?  Wrong!  I end up way out of God’s plan, totally unfocused on the Lord and completely focused on me.  The result is guilt and fear, no fellowship with God and becoming a cosmic tool.  Getting back in fellowship is amazing.  Instantly, there is peace and focus, determination instead of self pity,  no fear, no guilt, just confidence.  Total grace from God to live the spiritual life.

The Ghost In My Genes

This house is haunted, so am I,

I saw a spector with my eye,

It wore my clothes and had my hair

It said that death wasn’t fair,

It wanted life again from me

It promised I could make it free,

It promised it would go away

No more fearful ghostly ray,

I brought it daily all it asked

I obeyed its every task,

When to my horror I did discover

The thing I fed did not recover,

Instead my life was sucked away

each time I gave it its own way.

 

The Ghost in us was born in death

We cannot give it life and breath,

For life, it hungers endlessly,

Crucified with Christ, upon a tree,

There it lost its power over us

Who have believed in Christ Jesus,

We who believe are something new

Brought to life with Christ it’s true!

Ghost and Life in one small frame

Being haunted by it, is no shame,

The ghost reminds us where we’d be

Without The Christ who set us free.

 

Keep Sailing,(happy halloween)
