A Writer's Journey of a Secluded Mind

It is not through good works one will be saved. Not through obeying the law and persecuting others. Is this not judgement in itself? Are we to judge knowing in our hearts that we have sinned? But what sin is not pardoned if we follow the greatest  commandment: to love. For in true love there is no judgement. 

And the only work required:

“The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.” (NIV John 6:29)

How then can we spew hate and persecute those “different” than us.  Do not quote scripture at me when you yourself have left your children to fend for themselves. 

I can only apologize that I have not a way to help. The snares in my own life are far more than I can handle. I can only preach love, though I cannot feel it. My own child is with his father, not because of man, because of courts and judgement: but in a moment of clear lucidity I knew his father had a far greater capacity to love than myself. There he is safe from this self-destuctive spiral I find myself on. This merry-go-round has room for but one passenger and I would wish it on noone. 

Be careful how you raise your children so that sins of the father do not reap what you have sown. In man’s quest for excellence we have so poluted the world that what was once cured by faith may no longer be. I am how I am for a reason, though I know not what it is. It is through faith that I put one step in front of the other. Yes look both ways, but move forward.

For man will read something, and based on his beliefs and experience interpret it one way. 

A man full of love will see hope and redemption. 

A man scorned, bitter and angry will seejustification for his lashing out. 

How much of the languages have been interpreted through a lover’s rejection?

In our hunt for rigteousness we forget what is good. “‘ I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Matt. 9:13) We forget what it means to survive, not live. We seek glory and riches at the expense of others. The saddest part? We glorify the evil, the things of this world. Our media is full of lies and contempt. We are Shocked when something is shown in a good light. As a whole those who are ‘good’ are ridiculed and made less. It appears we have forgotten to hope. 

Mercy, not condemnation. Love not pity. Hope.

What if,

Everytime the human race gets closer to a break through in science or theology

The higher power, however you describe him/her ( I claim God), says, “Wait! Woops, uh no. Here’s a…” Now fill in that space with a natural disaster, a man made disaster, a change in global politics, a change in a political leader. It could be grand scale, local, global, your back yard. What if, these “oh my the world is going to end it’s the apocolypse” momemts, they were tests?

Have we ever stopped to look? Scary thought. And I leave on that note.

I have had my Kindle Fire for years now. Couldn’t tell you how long but, well, there are thousands of books on it. I have had to reset back to original programming a few times because I had used up all the space on the Fire.

Well, now I have bought a Kindle 8. Still trying to decide. Its black and white. Doesn’t light up. Very much like a book. It is smaller and lighter than the Fire. Not so sure how I am supposed to listen to the audio. Thought I saw somewhere about Bluetooth. I’ll find that one out. Is easy to hold in one hand. A bit sensitive on the touch screen. There’s no home button so getting there isn’t the easiest. I had actually bought so I could get the Bible in the original script, which the Fire wouldn’t support. I actually need to connect it to the WiFi at home and not just at work, so I can see if that is true.

Not so good of a review? I’ll say this the 8 fits in my purse a lot easier and works as a work book. No glare from the florescent lights. I’d read it at home, but it doesn’t light up. So the Fire I’ll keep for home. It lights up at night. Reading a single book between the two has been okay. They have been keeping in sync with minimal fuss.

If you want the actual specs, you’ll have to go to Amazon. While I was shocked at how small it is, I am not too upset with it. It’s done okay. I’m a Kindle lover all the way so… Unless it doesn’t support the Hebrew and Aramaic script, I’ll keep it. Now too see how long it will hold a charge?
