A Good day!

me and TIm.jpg

     Tim and I had a great day the other day, I wanted to share about it. We didnt’ go to the Bahama’s and we didn’t go to Disneyland.

We BBQ’d and enjoyed some corn from a friend nearby, who brought me some corn on the cob, just because they remembered how much I love it. it’s funny how a still day, no wind hardly, BBQ smells emerging from the charcoal, and the dog laying there in anticipation of a bite can eminate such a wonderous atmosphere. 

Suddenly, all the pain, fear, and turbulence from the past months just went away. I don’t think it was because of the BBQ.

It was just a reflection of the peace that had emerged inside me from acceptance, love, forgiveness, and just letting go of all the pain and allowing God to take over. 

I know there are a lot of people who don’t believe in God, but then again, there are many who call on him in times of trouble, who don’t normally call on him otherwise. 

I do believe in God, as I have seen evidence he exists time and time again. I wrote books about it too, but they are not selling too well right now, but that’s okay! 🙂 

My success does not depend on what man has to say about me, so no worries there. Here’s the thing, God said in his word there is nothing better than to eat, drink, and enjoy the fruits of our labors. Isn’t that awesome?

He didn’t say there is nothing better than to work your buns off, or there is nothing better than to sacrifice to the flames, or be a huge success in this world’s eyes…..

He said “Via his Servant’ 

“So I commended enjoyment, because a man has nothing better under the sun than to eat, drink, and be merry; for this will remain with him in his labor all the days of his life which God gives him under the sun.” 
Ecclesiastes 8:15
Wow!
Why do you think this is? Nothing better, he says? I agree. That BBQ and Corn was just awesome. And so is the loving man I shared it with.  Just think, the wisest man in the world said these words…….so let’s not do over-kill on performance, shall we?

Religion has an ugly face…..

Yesterday I told someone my exciting news of What God had done (I was so full of Joy) and they gave me this dark evil look and tried to straighten me out with their big bible knowledge! What? so you are not happy for me? I have JOY PEACE and righteousness today! God’s kingdom! and you are not happy for me? Why is that? Judgemental    

The spirit of religion has a very ugly face. When you have joy in the Lord it wants to correct you, and point a withered finger at you and scold you. If you get closer to Jesus and you didn’t do it their way they will try to straighten you out.

Religion does terrible things to people and does not win anyone over to Christ. it makes people act like a know it all self-important bag of wind, and nobody is inspired to be closer to Jesus because of those who act like angry stodgy wind bags!

Does Jesus love them? Sure, but they won’t receive it. they are far too full of themselves and what they think they know! -Laura Grace
