God’s Vision for Your New Year – Always 20/20!

How could it be that not only another year, but an entire decade has already passed us by?  What remains of those eventful times reflectively graces our memory banks and the family photo collection.  Without a doubt, certainly in the western world, the blessings from our Creator have far outnumbered the troubles. However many or few, deliberate or intentional – any mistakes we made can assuredly be forgiven and forgotten.  Best of all, they can be greatly minimized or prevented along the path of the new calendar that lies ahead.  If only we will purpose to acknowledge them – gaining significant insight from their valuable lessons.  Have we yet learned, for instance, that pardoning past wrongs, loving the unkind, selflessly serving others, replacing worry with prayerful action, and caring well for our bodies are all hallmarks of ultimate happiness?

The Savior of our souls, whose advent was just celebrated by Christians worldwide, is more than able to transform the failures of yesteryear into golden opportunities that draw us closer to full dependence upon Him.  God’s amazing grace and mercy underscore His desire for us to gain humility from our regrets – in order to equip us for advising others in preventing their anguish from similar wrong choices.  Our part is simply to confess each bad choice and ask Him to turn it all around for His glory – something that has always been His specialty.  The sin-riddled life of King David in the Scriptures is a great example of such redemption.  The secret of this imperfect monarch was continual confession and restoration in his relationship with God.  Whatever the misdeed, we can never underestimate the patience of the King of Kings.

Truly, on many occasions, the shortfalls in this realm seem completely beyond our control,  Company shut-downs with subsequent lay-offs, grief over family and friends, and numerous other difficult circumstances can hinder our hopefulness.  Even so, the familiar Bible stories of Joseph, Job and most notably – Jesus Christ – can appropriately remind us of how the Almighty rewards steadfast trust in His ability to see His people through seasons of horrific injustice and pain. Each of these severely tested souls refused to discount the sovereignty of our Heavenly Father. Each of them was the epitome of an overcomer – most exemplified, of course in our death-conquering Lord Jesus.  The same soul-lover of all such historical figures is able to work any difficult circumstance in the days and months before us together for our good – as well as to help us with faithful perseverance through even the darkest of trials yet unseen in the future.

So, yes! Each and every one of us can experience the wondrous presence of the Almighty in this new year that is already marching onward. The key to a supernatural relationship with Him is to prayerfully seek His guidance each day – along with continually giving thanks for our lessons learned, and for His many life provisions. Understanding this magnificent truth will bring the ultimate peace and endurance we need to face any trial that could possibly arise in the months ahead.  The confidence He bestows will enable every availing individual to make wise choices for this fleeting physical, mental, and spiritual existence.  The deep love of Christ will further equip us to improve the life conditions of those throughout the earth who are hurting and feeling forgotten.  May the ‘Keeper of all Time’ be our compass as we further navigate this temporal journey through the hills and valleys of 2020. May He provide us with the perfect vision in which abiding joy and unshakable strength empower us for every daily endeavor!

Gratefulness in a World of Grief

What a difficult task we have in cultivating thankful thoughts within this busy, self-indulgent culture of ours.  The most plausible explanation for the hurried human condition undoubtedly lies within this imperfect existence that we all inhabit. Since the fall of humanity, we have inherited a tendency not only to make immoral choices – but also to focus on negatives in a given situation. Certainly, from day to day, it is easy to think positively and remain content when all is going our way.   Yet, to the contrary, it requires a deep inner strength granted only by our Creator to feel joyful and confident when we face multiple trials.  The devastating loss of a loved one, a friend, a material possession, or another cherished treasure in life can really topple our world if we are not inwardly equipped for such tragedies. How then is it actually possible to weather the inevitable pitfalls throughout this lifetime while maintaining a hopeful outlook?

As a further complication for humanity, in this age of health epidemics, feeling chronically ill is a special challenge for so many. Over the millennia, we have acquired an escalating cascade of physically dangerous microbes, life-sucking parasites and severely toxic chemicals and metals. The lucrative processed food industry – as well as the apparent increasing greed of the medical establishment with its overzealous use of vaccines, antibiotics, and other pharmaceuticals – have greatly contributed to this disturbing reality, destroying the delicate balance the Creator designed within our bodies.  As a result, an increasing number of us have chronic health conditions and wonder how we can possibly be grateful for our plights.  We wonder, like the biblical figure, Job – how we can deal with such suffering – as we continue to love and serve our Lord. The answer to this tough inquiry may actually be found in the words of a simple old Christian hymn:  “When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost – count your many blessings, name them one by one – and it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.”  As these wise lyrics advise, taking stock of all that we have – rather than dwelling on the shortfalls – can continually enable us to praise God for our basic essentials and physical capabilities that we tend to take for granted.

Thoughtfully consider that analysts have observed in studies how the wealthiest and healthiest are not necessarily the happiest of people. Very often in fact, it is the truly desperate among us who most readily receive the knowledge of God.  Most assuredly, numerous Scripture references instruct us on finding contentment in our poorest and sickest conditions – even viewing these trials as opportunities to grow in character and to magnify the greater strength of the Almighty.  Ideally, securing a solid relationship with our Creator, the most proficient of all problem-solvers – will enable us to experience the greatest comfort – and often total solutions – for whatever ails our bodies, minds and circumstances.  His Spirit can envelop our souls with thankful hearts that will sustain us through any tribulation we encounter and provide us with ultimate hope for complete wholeness for all eternity!

Contented Quote:  “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”  – Philippians 4:8

Healing Lessons of History

Since the fall of that first man and woman in the fertile Tigris-Euphrates River valley,  humanity has been continuously in need of healing – both physically and spiritually.   Though the Creator cursed the ground from that time on with many thorns and infectious agents, He still mercifully provided an abundance of nutrient-rich foods and healing herbs throughout that lush garden in Eden – and far beyond.  Descendants of Adam and Eve down through the ages have benefited from the tried and true remedies of their forefathers.

Even more amazingly than these gracious provisions, Old and New Testament Scriptures relate a number of accounts in which severe conditions were divinely healed by our great and loving God. Writers carefully detailed the restoration of lepers, barren women, the blind, deaf, lame – and incredibly, in some cases – those who had already physically perished.  What a testimony of His awesome power to those who witnessed such wondrous displays of goodness from the Almighty.  Then, most spectacularly of all, the Son of God Himself conquered death after His crucifixion – fulfilling the prophecies made millennia earlier.   Those who trust in the Messiah for the forgiveness of their sins and repentance were promised healing ‘by His stripes’ – in this life and for all eternity.

Over the centuries, post Biblical records worldwide have indicated that well-fed families with healthy, moral lifestyles have been quite successful in proliferating their genealogies – without modern interventions such as vaccines and antibiotics.  These same resourceful people were very astute in utilizing plant-derived medicines to remedy their temporary illnesses.  When Louis Pasteur’s terribly flawed germ theory became popularized in modern history, we began to follow a perilous road which has led more to financial prosperity for pharmaceuticals than to better health for citizens.  Toxicity related deaths continue to soar – especially throughout the western world, where access to medical care is most prevalent. The so-called experts never explain the most obvious error in their commonly applied theory on germs – why most people exposed to infectious diseases do not actually manifest any symptoms.  The truth is that we all receive the bad microbes – simply by breathing the air that carries them.  Even so, those who become ill are only the people in a weakened state of immunity due to being highly toxic, under-nourished or over-stressed.  The same is true of various types of non-contagious maladies – like cancer.  An adequate number of strong, flourishing cells in a person will prevent unhealthy ones from metastasizing and destroying the body tissues.

Our God created us so marvelously, with complex systems designed to resist the most harsh microbes and to overcome a vast number of potential interior malfunctions.   If we are wise stewards of these incredible bodies of ours, they can become fully healed and amazingly productive in this brief existence.  By choosing a balanced diet of unprocessed foods, reducing unnecessary stresses, and avoiding toxic exposures – we can be highly successful in optimizing our potentials to accomplish all the Creator intends for an influential contribution in this vast and needy world.

Spring into New Life – Healthy and Whole!

Tiny leaping lambs and sunny daffodils are cherished symbols of this most favored season – springtime! Many of us have long pined for its brighter days and warm breezes. Our Creator has been graciously FAITHFUL over many millennia to continually provide us with this hope of nature’s resurgence beyond the fallen dry leaves and frozen earth which so dutifully harbors hibernating life. As magnificent as this predictable cycle has proven to be, even more so is the immeasurable HOPE we are given through trusting in the provision of a Savior for the world – the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ. Whatever our physical, mental, or emotional struggles within each passing year – we have the promise of an eternal existence with perfect bodies and minds awaiting us through that inevitable gateway of fleshly death. God’s very own Son was the original death conqueror – as eye-witnessed by hundreds – even according to extra-biblical records. Thousands to this very day have literally lost their lives for refusing to deny what was evident to them through His divine revelations. Still countless others suffer in areas of the world where Christian persecution is seemingly relentless. Those in free countries must relish their opportunities to worship openly and bear witness of the LOVE that God has lavished upon all humanity. Every soul must individually discover the joy of knowing that Christ longs to walk with them daily in a very personal way. There is no experience like having a relationship with the Great I AM. One cannot come near imagining it – until actually receiving this gracious gift from Him – with a sincere and humble soul. The heated skepticism of many down through time has been amazingly transformed into a cooling breeze of faithful assurance from the Maker of heaven and earth. Acquiring this ultimate spiritual health brings an absolutely priceless temporal PEACE. Even so, this is only a foretaste of the incomparable, everlasting treasures – as fresh as springtime – lovingly prepared for those who determine to seek Him with all of their hearts!
