Stepping stones

A lot of people are being stepping stones for the wrong people. and many others are waiting for everyone else to lift them up. The times we live in. So many suffering. there are a million 99 things wrong with the world as we speak.  Hardly any have compassion for any because who can afford to? I see many things. My eyes are open. but honestly, if your eyes are open all you can do is lift them to God, and even if they are closed. I would pray God help me to see, but then some who see pray to make them blind.

I don’t have enough money in the world to solve all the problems of the world. I don’t have much of anything to offer any. But honestly, I believe in God.  I know some will laugh at God. and you will make jokes about God in ways that I have heard before, and honestly I don’t want to change you, for I mostly have learned that there are not a lot of people who overcome hate. They have to want to. and those who hate don’t seem to want to.  They seem to enjoy being miserable. I would say that is not possible but it is. I have seen such with my own eyes.

Perhaps some really are not curable. I know some do die for real. but I do know I have seen miracles of all kinds, and God has answered so much of my prayers and prayers of others. I write as myself because this is who I am. I have lived so many lives, and I don’t mean other lives. I mean the things I lived in my short years. If I spoke everything some would say I was lying, others would have pity, some would say that is cool.

I don’t shun Christian people but I do realize sometimes online it appears that way. and honestly, if people know what I have been through the last decade they might be able to comprehend me better. but I honestly am not trying to get any to comprehend me. I truth be told pray I can say a word that gets you thinking about life. Thinking about God.

Thinking about your future. thinking about morals, values, integrity, virtue. the things that are dying in planet earth. Do noble things exist anymore? What is honor? respect? loyalty? all these things are now foreign words. Almost like the new cuss words. We can’t say those words in public! Oh no unless it is f bombs and vulgar speech, it is not allowed around here! When I was a kid it was the cussing we hid. Now integrity is hidden. Valor is forgotten. We sure do remember to celebrate Christmas though. and all the finer things are forgotten, stepped on, trampled all over and now we are stamped with useless tokens. kind words. empty meanings. broken promises, empty kisses. but don’t tell anybody it’s our secret!

God did not call us to be stepping stones but hey who wants these messages these days? if it is not sex, drugs, violence, death, anything but God, they will hear it. If the blind lead the blind both shall fall in the ditch. when the blind are in the ditch they don’t even know it because they are blind. and my people die for lack of knowledge but not even lack of, just no desire for it. I don’t know which is worst. being stepped on or trampled on in the mud?

First appearances by Michelle Stokes

To those who always think we can make accurate guesses on first appearances. How much time do you think you need to look at someone before you have them all figured out?  How long do we glance at someone and make an opinion on them? (label them, put them in a box) )5 seconds? 10 seconds? 30 seconds? two minutes? Seriously what is your honest answer? weeks, days? Ok, Now I have an exercise you can do.

Go to google, type something like houses, or dogs, or something that a variety of different things will pop up. make sure you are on image mode. don’t hit enter yet. just think about what you are going to google.

Now, whatever that time was, you said it took you to make an accurate judgment of someone is the time you get to spend on Google. Should grab a timer if some of you answered 2 seconds, don’t cheat give yourself two seconds. unless you said days. or weeks, if you said five minutes. if you said thirty minutes. If you said 2 seconds. go to google image, and look at the page for that amount of time. then close google. and grab a pen and write everything you saw. Don’t shut the page but take it out of view. minimize it. Also don’t open it back up. No cheating you only get the time you gave yourself at the beginning.

After you are done writing everything you saw and you are a 100 percent you did not forget one detail. open the page and compare what is on that page with what you wrote.  The exercise came from this article, Deceived By

If your answer was days, weeks, months. perhaps save the page. copy it or something and do yourself a favor and write down everything you see every day (meaning truly spend some time looking at it daily)  and look at your list in whatever time you gave yourself and enjoy the fruit of your labor!! ❤  for if you gave yourself a long time you should have books worth of details!

This exercise was created by Michelle Stokes. designed so hopefully we consider such things!  Food for thought! have a blessed day beloveds! 😀 ❤ Unless you have a photographic memory this exercise probably is good for many! I pray many find the deeper meaning in this message! Have a wonderful day dear people! ❤

Deceived By

life’s little instruction book, It is something I have read through a few times and it always makes me smile. This it is a good little simple book. You can buy it brand new for 20 dollars I see, and on ebook for a few dollars. (whispers I got mine for 75 cents! 😀 ) Not really trying to sell the book but hey at least you know what I am mentioning.

“Don’t be deceived by first impressions.” I was really thinking about this line. it is a quote from that book and one time I wrote an article called don’t judge a book by it’s cover.  But, But, but. we all do that. there is the old saying that says first impressions are everything. and that seems to be true but what happens when we judge something wrong from a first glance?

For half a second a woman can appear to be beautiful. She can seem attractive, but as you start hanging around her, you notice she is not the same inside as out.  Some of the best people in the world are ones you have to take a double glance at. Some of the best books in the world are dusty, torn and weathered.

Some of the most deadly things come in beautiful sizes and shapes and may even appear to be shiny. But after examination, we come to see it is deadly to our soul. I say when it comes to a job first impressions mean everything. maybe perhaps even dates. I honestly am the type of person I will many times show up to dates dressing down. I wear no makeup. I say if he runs now then good. and honestly, if you don’t like me at my worst, you don’t deserve my best.

I am well aware people judge and honestly dressing down gets rid of the people I don’t want around in my life. I mean I love feeling good about myself and being clean and what not, but some people are so obsessed with appearances, they forget the finer things in life. I have my own way of weeding out people I don’t want around me. But this message is not really about me. Just what a thing to consider! I also feel that way when it comes to the bible. Don’t believe what other’s tell you, see it with your own eyes. It is funny how a open heart lets you see things from a different perspective. “Don’t be deceived by first impressions.”

As I was going to go look up the link to share the book I was referencing, I saw this video and decided to share it. It has a couple of the quotes with some video. Thought it was entertaining and worth sharing! There was not really a point to this blog really. I was just sharing my thoughts. I pray the reader is blessed and filled with joy. My activity the next few days may be light, as I am in the process of finishing my goals I started. I don’t know, I seen in my life making first impressions may seem good, but a lot of times I noticed I was so glad I put the further investigation in. For many times first impressions are deceiving. (not accurate)

Either way, love you guys! Have a blessed day or night or even afternoon, when you read this! Shalom! Again there was really no point to this. it was so random. Welcome to my mind! I also do think this book was worth the buy. I picked my copy up for 75 cents at the local library book sale! 😀 What a steal! I mean deal! I mean seriously, what a good buy for 75 cents! Where can you get that for a dollar in today’s time?  I even got a quarter back! ❤  😀 ! GOOD BUY! and the e-version is like 2 bucks. just thought I would put that out there.  Have a blessed day dear people!
