Letter 293 – Do You Have Hope?

HOPE…

Without Hope, our life is miserable… we die inside. We become lost and give up. We have to have Hope without which we would never survive. We receive Hope thru Faith, Belief, and finally through the Father of Hope… Jesus Christ.

How do we apply the principles of Hope to ourselves? We seek the Lord. We turn our life over to Him and receive The Holy Spirit. Through The Holy Spirit, we talk with the Lord. He guides us through the rocky trails of life and gives us Hope.

Hope can come and go… Grab on to it. Don’t let it slip away. It gives us strength and courage. It gives us peace. It gives us a positive attitude. As long as we apply the principles of Hope to ourselves through the Lord, we will win the battle ahead of us.

 

DO YOU HAVE HOPE?

Letter 293 – Do You Have Hope?

Letter From an Old Geezer: December 10, 2018

A little over 2000 years ago, Love was born, and His Name was Jesus. His Love for us is beyond measure.

 

Jesus’ LOVE for us rings with:

 

  1. When someone we care for cries, We taste their tears.

 

  1. When someone we care for hurts, We feel their pain.

 

  1. When someone we care for reaches out, We touch them.

 

  1. When someone we care for finds the Lord’s Love, We rejoice.

 

“LOVE: suffers long and is kind…Bears all things, Believes all things, Hopes all things, Endures all things… Love never fails… And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”

1 Corinthians 13: 4,7,8,13 [ NKJV

Letter From an Old Geezer: November 24, 2018 – Taste the Fruits of the Spirit

Accepting Jesus into our lives blends our Spirit with His Spirit. From this union comes the fruit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. As we begin our Christian walk, we need to live the integrity of the Spiritual Fruits.

The Fruit of Love is the most important fruit that we can taste. We are to love our fellow man as our selves. Without love, nothing else matters.

JoyHappiness, a great pleasure, delight.

PeaceCan only be drawn from the Lord.

LongsufferingLong, patient endurance of injuries, insults, trouble.

Kindness…Sympathetic, tenderhearted, generous.

Goodness…Honorable, respectable, morally sound.

Faithfulness…Unquestioning belief in God.

Gentleness…Courteous, calm, tranquil, quiet.

Self Control…Control our emotions, desires, actions.

 

The Fruits of the Spirit that we receive while here on earth is just a beginning of what we will encounter when we meet the Lord. With this in mind, reach forward for those things which are ahead.

Letter 258 – GOD PROMISES A SAFE LANDING AT OUR DESTINATION, BUT NOT NECESSARILY A CALM PASSAGE

Our real life begins when we give our hearts to Jesus and begin a journey and a commitment that at first we do not fully understand. As we begin to know Jesus, a point is reached where we can never go back to the old ways.

 

Journeying this unknown path, more and more is learned about Jesus plans for us. In order to sustain our commitment to Him, we have to stay focused and be overcomers. This means to simply recognize our choices, confess them, and then chose to turn around and go God’s way.

 

There are times when we drift off course and begin to lose our intensity for the Lord. We need to shore up these transgressions and never lose sight of our eternal goal, which is Jesus, and remember this…

 

GOD PROMISES A SAFE LANDING AT OUR DESTINATION;

BUT, NOT NECESSARILY A CALM PASSAGE

Letter 257 – WE WILL DRAW GOD’S PEACE FROM THIS

I’d like to share an earlier Letter…

There are unlimited ways that we can stay focused on the Lord. If you consider the whole of God’s creation, and look at the things He has created, starting from our inner being and expanding to the outer reaches of the universe; you will get a picture of what I am talking about, Staying Focused on the Lord Thru Viewing His Creation.

If we attempt to focus on the things of God…

-The Trees with their leaves of seasonal colors,

-The Bees and their busy trips to beautiful flowers,

-Looking up at the Blue Sky as a back drop to awesome Thunder Storm displays of lightning and thunder,

-And as we travel outward from earth, where our first encounter with the universe is Our Moon…

If we would put everything out of our mind except what we are seeing as we meditate on some of His wonders, we than begin to realize how truly great our God is; and begin to see His beauty around us, which draws us closer to Him.

 

WE WILL DRAW GOD’S PEACE FROM THIS

Letter 251 – CAN YOU CHANGE COURSE?

People in this world are changing like we have never seen before. Their mindset is on a course we could never have imagined. I believe they are on a course of destruction. This change has been going on for years and now it is out of control.

 

For those of us who grew up in an earlier era, our longevity highlights this change. For those from a later generation, they don’t realize the potential dangers that are lurking just around the corner. People are now lovers of themselves, and pleasure, but even more worrisome they are proud, unthankful, unforgiving, without self-control, traitors, and becoming brutal.

 

Strange times have blinded them to the point of not caring…to the point that the truth is not the truth. Falsehoods are the theme of the day. All of these manifestations are prophesized to be as in the Days of Noah…These days are here now. We are there.

 

For those, young and old, who are caught up in the struggles of this life, seek a better way. If you have eyes to see, seek the Creator of all things.

 

CAN YOU CHANGE COURSE?

Letter 250 – WHAT IS YOUR REFLECTION?

When you look into a mirror, you generally use it for cosmetic needs or other areas of personal hygiene; however, there is another reason to use it.

 

This other reason is for self-reflection. This is to see who you really are. As you contemplate this, what do you see?

 

Do you see a person of the world who is entrapped with the destructive things in life? Is your life full of turmoil with no hope on the horizon, or is your life filled with peace, tranquility, and hope?

 

Have you ever asked yourself these questions? Do yourself a favor…ASK.

 

As you ask these questions, you can begin to see who you really are. Just remember this…When you were created, you were created in the image of God. He gave you everything that you needed to walk His Way in your life. After contemplation, you will see that life has two reflections for you to choose from in the mirror. One is the way of the world, and the other is to live the Life that God wanted you to live.

 

WHAT IS YOUR REFLECTION?
