They say when you pray to God, go to your alone place. So I went and this is what i saw.
This place was over an hour hike from my car. I put my bible in my pack along with some water. I went there for the sole purpose of spending time in prayer with God. I expected nothing but a view that might remind of the greatness of God. I was just sitting down when this site appeared. I wondered about what I was seeing. Is anyone else seeing this? I thought. The longer I remained in prayer the closer the sun came. After I had finished I stood to my feet and as I collected myself for the journey back the sun spot just disappeared. Maybe this was just a gift for me.
For a perspective, the pine tree next to the trail is 25 ft high. The hill I'm standing on is 165 ft above the water level. The sun spot stayed for over 25 minits coming closer to shore the longer it stayed.

Choose "your" interpretation of the facts very carefully. The way you interpret information and conversation will ultimately say something about your own character as you attempt to relay, or possibly dramatize the information.

I recently heard local news report that a man that had a sighting of a "Bigfoot". And before the actual interview with the man the news reporting headline said; "A man had a sighting of Bigfoot and said it looked like Farrah Fawcett".

When they actually interviewed him, he said nothing of the sort. He simply described the beast as having "light colored blondish hair".

When people choose to add or subtract information it skews the original information. It contorts it. It leads the perception of the information down a different path. It is also considered deceitful or manipulative. It makes people believe something other than what was said.

When a person practices this informational contortion, then they leave others with no choice but treat those individuals character and information as questionable.

What is it about a movie or song that can make a person cry?
Is it really about the movie or a song?
Or is it about the person who is crying?

There is something very deep inside a person that is affected by a movie or a song that they feel a spiritual expression through crying as a uncontrolable way of identifing with it. Or an actknowelgement of it. There is something that makes things so clear and real that its undeniable. Something that is so moving that it can't be kept inside of us.

John 11:33
When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled.
Luke 19:41
As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it

I've seen this before

"Going to church doesn't make you a christian any more
than standing in a garage makes you a car."

I've seen this post a few places now and i don't disagree with this, but I think a few things could be added.
You're more likely to be a Christian if you go to church but you'll never become a car standing in a garage.

What makes you a Christian?
Did a Christian quote this or a non-Christian?

As Christians and non Christians, it should be evidence to all that, those who know Christ will carry the same love of Jesus the living water.
The love He puts in you will pour out onto others. This will be the evidence of those who follow Christ.

There is a dark side.

What is it that makes up a good side and an evil side and how is it that we know the difference?
When I was 3 1/2 years old I lived in a place that had a safe environment that allowed me to go outside without the fear of anything ever happening to me. I stayed around the house and back then I was a pretty good boy by most parents standards. I pretty much did what I was told so then was trusted outside by myself I presume for short periods of time.
During one of those periods I got adventurous and crossed the street in front of my house which couldn’t have more than 100 feet away from the house. I went there because the grass was as tall as me. I couldn’t go more than 10 feet into it because the grass just got too thick plus there was a fence. But when I got into the grass I saw a toad and I think I freaked out just a little. So I went a little further up the street where previously I had seen a brick that I once turned over to find a worm. I picked up the brick and took it over where the toad was. When I located it, I threw the brick onto it. I don’t know what I thought would happen but, when I picked the brick up off from the toad and I felt distraught at what I saw. The toad was dying. And I felt something I wasn’t prepared for. I had never heard of death before, never seen it before, I had no concept of it whatsoever. But my heart knew what it meant. I threw the block back onto the toad to cover up what had just happened and went back into my house. I remember my mom asking me what was wrong. And I said; “nothing”. And I went to my room to wait for supper.
So I believed that I had done something wrong but I didn’t know what it was. I didn’t dare talk about it because I thought there might be a possible punishment involved. A lot for a three year old, but I swear these were my thoughts back then.
It was later on in life that I asked myself how did I know that there was something wrong in death? Death did not appear to be good and it looked like the end of something good. Is there an inherent good in us? Do we have a “God stamp in our lives”? Do we carry with us, the very nature of God? I believe we do and I believe God does speak to us. I also think that we shut God out. We live so much of our time in the noise of everyday life that we don’t give ourselves the opportunity let God have a voice in our lives.
Did you know that the gift of free will is from God? Do you know why he gave it to us? There is a reason and I know what it is. Do you?

2 Peter 1:3,4
His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

Its been too long

Too long since my last post.
Some have the highest expectation of others while others have the highest expectations for themselves. When we fail ourselves--------shame on you that think only others fail you. When we fail ourselves we cant imagine the cost. Our hearts yield to failure and the promoter tries to win by keeping us down. It can be difficult to bring ourselves back up out of despair. Prayer to God for strength can and will bring us out of it. but we have to embrace it. Meet up with it. Our lives are to help others and to let others help us when they offer help. We cannot be effective leaders for those that need leadership if we allow failure to take a hold of us. Stand up and dust you feet off and get back on track as soon as possible.
Make no mistake of who is the evil force behind keeping us from God grace. It is satan.
He is the tempter and the promoter and the accuser. He tempts us to sin then he promotes it through our own selfish desires by saying things like, "just this once" or "nobody will know" or "you wont get caught". Then, after we commit the sin, he is right there being the accuser saying, "and you think you're a good person, look at what you did, God is not going to forget this one.".
He wants us to be separate from God. This is his last ditch effort to steal our souls from God.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Hebrews 8:12
For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."

Psalm 23:3
he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Want to See God?

If you don't really care then don't bother reading the rest of this. Unless you can imagine yourself going through it all.

If you really want to see God, Look into the eyes of a person who experiences deep pain for the sake of others.

Look into the eyes of the poor or the lost and the broken, the child without hope, the person who lost the only person they ever loved. The person that has nobody in their lives. The parent who knew his son was going to be in agony for the last hours before his death.

See, God put himself in the pain and suffering of his own son. So we can know that he is the God of compassion and love. He knows first hand what it is to feel human.
