Tips for your social media (Facebook) break

I absolutely loved this! I totally turned off all social media for a long time! was the best thing I ever did!! Even lately I haven’t had a lot of time for social media and I do mean even word press. I have been so busy in life accomplishing things and honestly it is great! and for years now instead of digging through needless post. I pick up good healthy books. the bible. I pick up so many useful things. I don’t miss all that useless time I use to be on social media. Just being honest. and it has been super nice making myself get off the box! it’s good to get hobbies. pick up side jobs. something productive you can show for your time. Instead of how many statues you liked. As we get older we think of time a little different then youngsters. Or I know I truly do. Are you investing your time wisely? I truly am trying to!

Boondock Ramblings

When bloggers and others talk about a social media break let’s be honest, we know they (we) are talking about Facebook. As far as social media goes, Facebook is the biggest time suck for most people. Not only that but Facebook has more information on you than anyone else and their tentacles reach into so many facets of the Internet, disconnecting from them for a while, or all together, is probably a pretty good idea.

You might be thinking to yourself, “I don’t spend that much time on Facebook” and while it may be true that you don’t spend a large, continuous block of time there I have a feeling you spend much more than you think. In the same way someone who wants to lose weight benefits from keeping a food diary, someone who is considering a break from social media should write down each time they log on…

Dead Friendships

I don’t call people I never see friends. if we are friends why do we not talk? why is there no conversation? I call these people strangers. In times of absences people can change. Who your best friend was ten years ago is not who they could be today. People can change. Cherish the ones who love you and keep them close. I feel only strangers barely talk. The ones I call friends are the ones in my circle.

I hear this stuff about ohhh my best friend, we don’t have to talk for years and when we do it is like we never stopped talking. Sorry My thinking is. if we are best friends why have we not talked in years? with all the cell phones, and facebook and so many ways to keep in touch why are we not talking? anyways that is how my brain thinks.

I am not forcing any to be around me. If you don’t want to talk to me don’t, but don’t be mad when I don’t consider you my friend. I am really picky with who I let in, so if you want to stay around act like it. Or be gone. Just how I feel about it. i am not desperate for friends and truly don’t mind being alone with Jesus,. won’t be the first time in my life it has been that way, and could not be the last either. 2019 is the year i got rid of dead relationships and dead friendships. may they rest in peace!

Sorry I mean no offense but with the world being the way it is. I know I am rare and because of such I am very picky with who i let be my friend. So many fakes and phonies in the world. it is hard to find good quality people in today’s times. and if you let too many losers in your life. they will break you and be gone and then what?

I put a lot of work in to be a good person. and because I do. I want my work to be appreciated. So many people think good people are stepping stones or door matts or something to be taken advantage of. You do not see we choose to be this way. so when you find a good person VALUE THEM! I mean open your eyes dear people, how much of the world is good in today’s times?

Either way i don’t think I am better then any but seriously if you are out there and you are being different, you are being the lamb in the midst of wolves. be careful beloveds. people don’t have to love you. people don’t have to be nice to you. so when you find someone who is CHERISH THEM! For it is indeed a choice! I pray many get over the entitled thinking because honestly if even one person loves you THAT IS A BLESSING! AND TRUTH be told one should cling to their blessing. Not take it for granted,. Just my thinking. in it.

random thought* Sorry don’t mean to offend any just my thinking. Treat people how you want to be treated and when you see someone treating you well. APPRECIATE THEM! For in today’s times so many a holes. but how many good people? then we find the good ones and be a holes to them? Something is truly wrong with this!

You can hate me,, not like me, don’t have to be around me, but please don’t say we are friends and never talk to me! Sorry in my mind that just doesn’t fit right but to each their own. I pray this be the year many of us examine our lives and go through our friends with a fine tooth comb and just start examining our lives and the ones we call homies. just my advice. have a blessed day beloveds!

Just saying Hi! Worry?

It has been a long two days. I have worked almost non stop 12 hours each day. Not complaining! I am truthfully happy and excited about it!  Making progress! But enough about me. I just came on to say, I pray the reader is blessed. I pray God uplift your mind. Uplift your heart, uplift your spirit, and just fill you with a wonderful spirit of joy and peace and comfort and God send you a sign, that everything is going to be fine!! God deliver us from our worries, from our doubts, from our fears, from our anxieties, and give us a spirit of peace and trust.  Help build up our faith and give us comfort God, in Jesus name Amen!

One thing I noticed in life, so much of my worrying was for nothing. I don’t think I am worried. I do think. But I learned to just trust God. There are things you can change in life and things you can’t.  Perfect planning is not always possible. Like for instance. let’s say you plan a vacation trip. You are all packed and good to go. then next thing, you get a flat tire. Great! you did not leave with that much time for this. So you cuss, you get angered, you say ok no big deal. I have a spare. I can fix this quick. So you do, and again all of a sudden you drive off, get about two miles down the road and all of a sudden the tire pops again.

Now you have no spare. this story can go so many ways. Let’s say some miracle happens and you get to your plane on time. or you cancel and find out later that plane crashes. I don’t really know the ending to the story. the point being you can make plans, plan things perfectly and things can happen you have no control of.

A lot of times when I was younger, I worried about everything. I really took it to prayer.  I heard God speak, why worry about things that could not be?  Have I not taken care of you all this time?  Are you alive now?  Things in life you can change. Some things you can not change and will just be.

I don’t know how to speak worry out of your life. But I do pray God help you not to worry friends, in Jesus name Amen! I am sharing this scripture with a prayer. I pray people learn to make better judgement. Although it is great not to worry, it not wise to not plan my friends. Worry is sometimes useless. Most of the time worrying is overrated. Make plans, make goals, make list. go through your life with a fine comb. Examine self.  Instead of worriers lets be people who make goals and get them done! What are you worrying about?  Is it in your hands? Can you change it?  If you can not change it, why are you worrying? Whatever will be will be and if you can change it, get er done! God bless us all! Love you guys! Have a blessed day dear people! ❤

Matthew 6:26-34 NKJV Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one [a]cubit to his[b]stature?

28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not [c]arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

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?

Comfortable Christianity

I love sitting in a crowd where people quote the scripture, where we talk God 24/7 I think it is beautiful. and I sat with many Christians. but then I started noticing none of these people left their circle. What is the point of being Christ like if you are hiding it in the closet? I don’t want to sit in a crowd where everyone knows the bible and high fives them self. I want to sit in the crowds nobody else does. I want to sit with criminals, with drug dealers, with addicts. I want to sit in the middle of broken people and say Hi my name is Michelle let me tell you of Jesus who saves. Jesus who heals, Jesus who delivers.

It is fun to sit with others who know God and high five each other. but my heart is in people like the former me.  I don’t want to sit with seven generation holy people. I mean no offense you don’t know my struggle, or the struggle of life and truth be told you should thank God if that is you. Thank God for keeping you sheltered. but I was not sheltered. I was in the wilderness. I was in the desert, in the valley of death is where I lived so I don’t care for comfortable Christianity. Especially when I noticed all my Christians had no problem telling me what was evil, and how I should act but can’t even speak the Gospel to the lost. I left that crowd.

I would rather sit with homeless people, drug dealers, addicts. people with problems who know they aren’t perfect. I see many say they love God, but they only speak God in the church. They only speak God in front of their other Christian friends. and that is fine and dandy. I don’t want to judge any but in my heart I just feel so this is why Jesus died? I asked God that one day and God told me to look at the scriptures deeper and so I did.

But then again I am one of the ones who was sent among wolves and maybe perhaps all Christian people can not do that. maybe there was a reason Paul was chosen and did not agree with others. I really don’t know. I just know I hardly want to sit among people who know the Lord, because honestly most of their hearts are not mine. I see many say Jehovah witness are false.Mormons are false but how many Christians you know that deliver the Gospel to you door to door? They are into comfortable Christianity.  Are they wrong? I don’t know all I know is my heart is not them.

I use to get so angry (kind of still do too honestly) nobody spoke about sin. Nobody called people out of sin. Then I said LORD here I am! I will go and so I did. I think that is one of the reasons I never took the Christian label. I never knew what it was most of my life. and now I know and I still don’t want the label. I would rather be Michelle. Because honestly some of today’s Christianity is worldly and that is truth and God says come out of these things, be not part of them! and so I did listen to God. Some, God calls separated and I am beginning to think I am one of them. Not boasting or bragging but seriously I do not care a lot for comfortable Christianity and those who can only speak Gospel in their church. it is people like that why so many go on broken and hurting, because they never know God can save them, because the ones with the knowledge sit among each other and never give it out to any new.

Sorry these words were not written to offend any but truly just how I feel. I understand all things work for God. Just truly glad to be out of the comfortable Christianity crowd and that is truth. I truly apologize if I offend any. That was not the purpose of this message. Was just mostly venting. have a blessed day dear people.

In the bible I read the justified are those who feed the homeless. those who heal the wounded. Those who are servants. Sitting in a crowd around people who know Jesus is not the only justification. I do truly pray many of us grow out of comfortable Christianity and may we be doers instead of people who preach to our self. For that is what comfortable Christianity is. I will stay where it is safe and speak Jesus among everyone else who speaks Jesus. The way of the world. I also believe in my heart the comfortable Christians are the ones who would flee in half a second when it came to needing help. Just something I observed in my own life.

Free to be

Free to be. I think in today’s time that sentence is like a dagger. it is ok to free who you are. But what it really means is you are free to be yourself as long as you follow the crowd. Conform to everything around and you are free to be. and in human thinking that is great but in God’s wisdom that is death. We are free to make any choice we want, but I do pray many people learn freedom of choices has freedom of repercussions.

I am free to drink as much as I like, sleep with who I want, say what I want, do what I do without being judged. This is today’s mentality. and don’t you dare say a word to me. So how long before people realize we can be free so much we are held captive by our own freedom? I will give an example.

Now I know not the legalistic terms to the laws that are trying to be passed about same sex bathrooms. So honestly I can not speak that much on it. But I start wondering. Does that mean men and woman can go to the same bathroom? So how much freedom is freedom before we are captive to our own freedom?

So I am going to take it as, they are trying to have men and woman use the same bathrooms. So do people know kids are raped? Molesting is real? Do people know kids molest kids? This is not a joke friends, it happens all the time. So are we now promoters of this stuff? This is what freedom now means?

Why am I persecuted for speaking life, and it seems the killer, rapers and molesters are like getting hand slaps or even laws promoted for them to be better in society. I do not mean better them self, the monsters are given power to grow it seems. We now make laws so we can be free.  Free to be anything but don’t speak truth. Don’t speak life. Or somehow you will become the bad guy.

I just wonder, I wonder how long until they just lead us in a line straight to the ocean and just say jump in and push the ones who won’t go. because honestly some of the things that are being called freedom seem to be freeing monsters.

You are free to be anything you want. But to those who come to my wall. I love you. Love does not push you off the bridge. love gives you a life jacket. love teaches you how to swim. Love says because there is a ditch you may fall in, be careful! Take my hand! I will help you! Love says hey man consider your actions. Love says sin is death and in this generation I can understand why many do not know such stuff, but I truthfully pray some people consider.

There are monsters in the world and it is all fun and games until it is your child that gets hurt, you that gets raped. how many people were ever molested in their life? and if you were, do you want it done to others? So much of my life many have testified of being raped, being molested and soooooooooooooooo many of them keep it a secret. If we all sit silent and nobody thinks about our actions or what becomes of them. how free are we friends?

I freely love God. and as we are all free to love many things, I pray God help me just freely worship you unashamed nor afraid. let me bold with my praises as they are bold in their freedom! I pray God your Holy Spirit win and as I praise you GOD tear down these lies! Help them see truth and change their hearts oh God. help them see things at a different level that will help them consider, and also God bring them of remembrance of the future generations to come. because what happens when monsters breed my friends? they grow and reproduce. and that is truth! Free to be? What?

Written for people to consider friends. food for thought.. Shalom!

Out of the normal.

I am going to do something out of the normal. Only because I thought this was right on time to the things I wrote. I am going to share something and I want to say from the get go. I do not know who this man is. and someone shared this picture  with this quote;

“This is profound! Bearing in mind this, namely that Osho does not believe in God, and yet [as a theist] i did not reject his quote, not only because i can see the value and truth entailed in his quote, but because the value of truth is more important than who said it and what he or she believes.”

As I went to read the comments I saw this written, “you do know the scandal this man was involve in ? yeah?”

So I am going to paste my reply and share the image but again, I don’t know who this man is, but I also appreciate the words written on the picture as did the original poster. and this was my response. Thought it was appropriate since I wrote about, The Power of Words. But first lets share the picture I speak of.

 46022109_10218245211630481_4171024860643852288_n

This was written in response to this. Again I do not know who this man is but I do appreciate the saying also.

My response, People don’t understand God can use a donkey if need be and whether good or bad all things leave an example. And sometimes even murders speak words that bring us life. look at Paul how many did this murder’s words save? I just think that is the power of God!! I wonder how many sat and gossiped and talked about Paul and all the things Paul did. I just think it amazing how God can use any. Just because God uses us doesn’t mean we are God’s though. I do not want to thank God for evil but even evil teaches us what we ought not do. God gave us a mind to make sound decisions. Well to those of us who know God anyways, but even then some who know God may stumble or fall, but honestly I am not a judge and I don’t know the deeds of this man, and I praise not the person, but this quote is beautiful!!! and that i do know! I am always offended when men buy me roses, especially when they say this is a token of my love. Great i think,You know these roses will die in like three days? better to have bought me socks or something that last longer. I know many woman do not think as me but a plucked rose is just dead. and if you spent money on a dozen. Should buy a bush at least then you can see it each season. Anyways just how I think! have a blessed day!”

I imagine this man’s deeds (speaking of the guy in picture) must of been bad, so before anyone tries and twist me into something I am not. I am going to just add this in. God calls us out of sin. Not into it my friends. That is what I consider sound mind doctrine. One more time for clarity I am not a follower of that man’s words for I don’t know them. I do like the words written on the picture and I am a follower of God’s Words and God’s wisdom. Just thought I would put that out there, before someone tries to come and pervert my words. let the scriptures speak. Have a blessed day dear people!

Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
