“Remember your Creator
in the days of your youth,
before the days of trouble come
and the years approach when you will say,
“I find no pleasure in them”—
before the sun and the light
and the moon and the stars grow dark,
and the clouds return after the rain.”
Remember those days? Mud-pies, sleepovers, tag, hopscotch, pickup games of soccer, hide and go seek? What did we have to worry about? I am not ignorant to say that those days for some are best left in the yesteryear. For those, today may be different. Your decisions are now yours, but are they? Living can be such a drag, moving from one dark experience to another.
But wait! It says “Remember The LORD in your youth.” The hard times pass, why? We cherish our creator, we were sent here for a reason, each of us has their predetermined path. I would be ignorant to say “find it.” But, rather will say “Pray it into being.” You were created for a purpose- live it through prayer! Be led. We were created and are for a reason. For all the abused individuals, you are for a reason! You made it this far. No illness, accident, abuse has placed you 6 feet under, into ashes of cast into the sea
So many times there are ‘messages’ that refer to past messages. We DO NOT do that. YOU are here for a reason. In some circles it is quoted:
“Brethren, I do not consider that I have made it ‘on’ my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:13-14 http://www.patheos.com/blogs/christiancrier/2015/10/13/top-7-bible-verses-about-putting-the-past-behind-you/#bLhQIhmF8rqqxr3I.99
Many a time we find it spoken in chastisement that we base our all on Jesus. He came to set the clock of ‘time’ back, we are now co-heirs,to The Kingdom:
“Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
For those who are led by The Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by Him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in His Glory.”
We see that in no way does the past influence the future. Now could affect the always in your life. Yes, I did say all ways. The Father, our creator is with us in Spirit. Can you stare straight at the Sun without ‘undue’ harm to your eyes? (UNDUE because no one asked you to do it.) Amazing how the sun in ALL its brightness and splendour is the center of the Universe. Yes, there are theories of ‘black hole’s’ and an alternate Universe. Has that been proven beside physics? What we see is what is. Have we mastered what we have? I ask these questions with a cause, to make you think. What is out there?
We have what is seen and known, have we mastered that yet? There are advances. Once there was nothing flying beside birds now kites, planes, rochett ships, satellites. Technology advances, still much more to come, but in this whole morass of information, where are you? Not a challenge but a question.
Fine, we can now address each person experiencing this message in one form or another. Who, what, where are you? Let us start at the tippy top. Billionaires- What next? Has there ever been a trillionaire? Then what? Yes, you have, but what do you take to the beyond? Get buried in your finest suit, in the most expensive coffin, construct your own mausoleum. Then what? Will you ‘take’ anything with you to wherever people go after this. Yes, there are crippled. They are limited in movement. We have for the most part when chanced,communicated with some. They are all there. Sans paralysis- Love makes them smile. Once,again you are taken back to communicating with a child. Remember where we started, in the days of your youth, remember The LORS. What makes them ‘smile?’ In youth, there is so much innocence as we pointed out: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/christiancrier/2015/11/25/7-bible-verses-for-the-young/
Time to make a life changing (absolutely guaranteed) decision.
“We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren”
1 John 3:16
Perhaps it is a little difficult to find the words to say. Let’s move right ahead:
LORD You are my everything. I am here for a reason. Thank You for all I have been through. I ask for Your forgiveness for each time I have strayed and found reason in temporal things. You are mt reason, The reason I am here. Cause me to see Your way, hold me close. Guide me and lead me. Give strength to my weary bones. You are my cause, my reason. Be with me as I live my every moment is and for you. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen
Amazing things will happen as you learn to let go, and let God.
