So, what’s your pleasure?

Help comes when in your heart you really want a change to come. Otherwise, you will fall back into whatever addiction you’re in. Simply denying your desires won’t be good enough, particularly when they lead to any type of life destroying addiction.

When you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, when things get played out, when life sends you around the same trip, you may be ready to release the stronghold that you yourself, by your own compulsions or cravings, are holding onto. Once you release, then, you can submit [James 4:4-8].

Throwing a pity party and expecting others to show mercy on you won’t help you. Do you wish to get well? When you are faced with this question, you will know if you’re serious about change or not [John 5:1-15]. What is your answer?

Three things I never pray for

Recently, I wrote a blog about the ten tools to tread through tough times.  In the blog, one of the tools was faith.  Now, there are three things that I desperately need in my life yet I have learned not to ever pray for.  The ten tools, if you will recall, are: love, peace, joy, happiness, contentment, fulfillment, commonsense, intelligence, wisdom, and Faith.  Nine of these tools will automatically produce in your life the three things that I never pray for.

What are the three things?  Well, you know the first one.  It’s faith.  It is the last of the ten tools to tread through tough times.  The next one is hope.  The last thing is patience.  Through my experiences whenever I pray for these three things I am put in circumstances that call upon me to utilize and exercise these three things.

Thus, when I’m in a long line, I get anxious and need patience.  When I pray for hope and/or faith, it seems that I’m placed in demoralizing dilemmas.  I feel discouraged and defeated and I need hope to stay optimistic and faith that God is with me in order to keep me from making equally demoralizing decisions.  I have learned that I don’t need to pray for these things.  I only need to operate in the nine tools mentioned above and faith, hope, and patience will appear.

Ten Tools To Tread Through Tough Times

There are ten tools I believe are necessary in order to do life right and to do life well.  They are: Love, Joy, Peace, Happiness, Contentment, Fulfillment, Commonsense, Intelligence, Wisdom, and Faith.

Six are necessary for emotional health and stability during tough times:  Love, Joy, Peace, Happiness, Contentment, and a sense of Fulfillment.

Three are necessary in order to develop mental strategies to learn, master, apply towards, and maneuver around tough times:  Commonsense, Intelligence, and Wisdom.

One is necessary for spiritual strength, support, and discipline needed to operate in all of the above tools:  Faith.

When bad things happen to good people… and when bad people don’t suffer

This is just my personal opinion.  Based on His favor with certain people, His forgiving heart, His power and authority to choose what He chooses and neglect what He neglects I can understand how God can look out for people who seemingly don’t deserve it and seem to abandon people who appear to be good in spirit. Based off of His promises to the Old Testament players, God was good to the later generations of offspring until their wickedness had to be dealt with. Likely, when He didn’t have His hand on a nation, they and their children suffered whether it was because of their disobedience or them not being guarded by His spirit. This calls into account free choice and responsibility for our consequences here on earth. We still reap what we sow but if God makes a promise to a person, He keeps it even when it doesn’t seem fair to others and if He hadn’t made a covenant with us because we don’t represent who He is, then our offspring, even the good ones, may suffer. But, this is just my belief based off of Old Testament reading, my observations of worldly events, and my personal experiences.
