“Enlightened”

“Enlightened” Born into a world of abuse and neglect, where abound the traps of self pity, addiction, and self contempt. Through Christ I am healed. The era of the pit of “the carrot” and “the dole” has ended. I will be the leader I was put on earth to be. 50 words…that was what they asked for. Tell us your story and why you … Read More “Enlightened”

Clarification on Where I Stand

Someone sent me a tweet that said “I look forward to reading your tweets!”. When I wrote a thank you back she had dropped me. It kind of rattled me. Chuckle, I guess it should not bother me, I want people to be free to do as they will. These are some of the thoughts I had as I reflected on the situation, just … Read More Clarification on Where I Stand

Freedom Comes With Giving The Reins To Christ

Freedom is what you feel when you are in line with the laws…all the laws, not man’s laws (I do not know if there is anyone who could be in line with all of  those, there are so many and they are so bizarre and “warp-able”) but this is not so with the laws of God…and this is the law that I am referring … Read More Freedom Comes With Giving The Reins To Christ

Freedom Means Knowing You Will Be Misjudged And You Have To “Chill”

If you are going to be free you are going to need to think for yourself and this is not something that is accepted in society. Even the “outliers” tend to have a group that they interact within and if you are going to be free you need to be autonomous or self sustaining. You need to understand that you will be misjudged, envied, … Read More Freedom Means Knowing You Will Be Misjudged And You Have To “Chill”

Organizaional Religion Should Not Take Your Personal Values Away

I re-read a statement in a book on leadership that I read a couple months ago. “When someone joins an organization, that organization’s values eventually take precedence over the individuals values.” I believe that this is why people are so afraid of organized religion and it is not found in the gospel of Jesus Christ…it may be found in the culture of the church … Read More Organizaional Religion Should Not Take Your Personal Values Away

Random thoughts on freedom…

verbalizing verbal/emotional abuse….recognizing it and doing something about it…mainly acknowledging it… there is a significant difference in being upset or even disgusted with an event and being disgusted with an individual…it is important to discern this sometimes subtle circumstance and address it…there may be no need to request an apology or that “the right thing be done” but to say this is what I … Read More Random thoughts on freedom…

Freedom Requires Leadership

Freedom requires leadership, first of the self, then for others. It is accountable. It is self reflecting and self analyzing. It is constantly changing in small ways to correct itself to the fullness of the inner truth that one seeks for like a miner panning for gold. It celebrates the small accomplishments but does not shy away from accepting the flaws within oneself. Freedom … Read More Freedom Requires Leadership

The Battle for Freedom is the Battle for the Right to Believe, to Exercise Faith As We See Fit

The battle for freedom is the battle for the right to believe. The right to exercise faith in truth or in falsehood, In that which brings growth, light, and life to intellect, spirit, and/or body or that which brings dead ends, darkness, and ultimately death to intellect, spirit, and/or body. Mankind lives by faith, the right to personal leadership if you will, the ability … Read More The Battle for Freedom is the Battle for the Right to Believe, to Exercise Faith As We See Fit

Recognition of Our Vulnerability and Complete Reliance On God

Freedom requires recognition of our vulnerability and complete reliance on God. This is intrinsic in the reality of all truth for only God is truth and only in God may truth be found. In fact, complete freedom requires that one recognize that the only thing that exists is God, once we understand that we will walk with God even as Jesus did. We will … Read More Recognition of Our Vulnerability and Complete Reliance On God

Freedom To Serve, Is To Acknowledge Ourselves In Others

Freedom to be part of something bigger than ourselves, at least our immediate, physical self. That is a gift given by the creator and that we may choose to give of ourselves. Births and weddings and tragically, deaths also bring this boldly to our minds. Freedom involves the ability to give of ourselves. It may be as simple as a smile or a hug … Read More Freedom To Serve, Is To Acknowledge Ourselves In Others

There Are Kindnesses All Around

I just had to add this footnote and say that I do know that there are those who do kindnesses all around us. And I am grateful for that. I have many in the branch (congregation) that I attend at church currently. That does not keep me from seeing a universal illness that needs to be addressed and come down with an impact that … Read More There Are Kindnesses All Around

Shattered and Shell Shocked

How do I let people know who I truly am and what I am feeling right now when I am so shell shocked, disappointed, and heart broken I have one of two choices, to crumble into a blob on the floor and take medication to numb my brain so I just do not care what is going on around me or allow the pain … Read More Shattered and Shell Shocked
