SIT DOWN WITH (ME!) Sandra, tvgp
An imaginary conversation with a very real friend: come sit down with me. Answer a few simple questions: k, now.. When you walked through the door, did you walk into a hostile environment? No. You were greeted with a warm and sincere smile. We are glad to see you. -and are you blind? No. You have full vision, you can SEE us. Isn't that a miracle... A great gift; being able to see... And hear... And hug.. And is there not food, healthy, safe food available to you, write now. You barely get a hint of hunger and have access to safe food immediately. Why, you can even have it DELIVERED to your room.. No hunting or gathering. Just point to what you want.. Make a call. And you can talk! You have a voice.. Isn't that awesome! Amazing! I know people who can't hear well, and have to talk with their hands.. You can talk! Pick up the phone! Order food write to your door step! See it, smell it, taste it, eat it! Digest it, be energized by it! ... And guess what else.. You have safe drinking water! As much as you want! Any time you want it! My God! Not only can you drink as much as you want... You can shower in it! Take a long shower and gets even better! You can adjust the temperature! A long, amazing, hot shower... Glory be to God! And when you're done... A bed waiting for you to rest in.. Tv with a hundred channels! Or music! Or silence if you'd like that... I know people who would give anything for just a little peace and quiet.. And it's here for the taking.. If you want it. Or.. You can hop on that fancy phone of yours and talk LIVE to someone on the other side of the planet... Is not that friggin' amazing! And guess what else... Guess what else.. You don't have to shovel snow to get to your horse and buggy... You are going to wake to a beautiful day and a CAR -with temperature control, and music, and wheels is going to help you get wherever it is you need to go.. And I see you have plenty of money for putting the necessary gas in the tank... And now I ask you, brothers and sisters, here in the tri valley California.. Those of you with perfectly healthy physical bodies, who can see, and smell, and touch, and talk, and walk and run... Taking long hot showers, drinking safe free water, eating 3 plus meals a day, with automobiles, and technology.. And living in a free society.. With friends, family, a job... How can you be still miserable? ..I'll answer for you: 1. Peter 5:8. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. And now, I already told you, if every time the devil attacks you, you immediately praise God and become even closer to God.. The devil will flee. The devil's objective is to separate you from God. Connect with God and become conscious and aware of all your blessings, and the miracles, and love.. Or 2. You could be suffering from clinical depression, in which case, only medicines can adjust the biological problem. God works through people.. And doctors ...and medicines... To heal and restore, so don't be afraid or reluctant to seek medical attention if a severe, long term depression is preventing you from being able to appreciate the value of your miraculous life. or 3. You could be putting off a difficult decision... I have experienced and observed, that sometimes if you need to get a divorce, or change a job, or relocate where you live.. But keep trying to stay somewhere, or with someone, whom or where you really don't belong.. This can take a terrible toll on your heart, mind and spirit. -pray for wisdom. Sometimes it is the write thing to stick it out.. Sometimes it is not. The important thing to see here... Is that even with every potential comfort, and a healthy body, and abundant material blessings... We can still be -empty. And it is sooo important to pay attention to what money can and cannot buy.. And if you have every material blessing, and a healthy body, and are still -empty, or sad, or still wanting.. Might this lead us to a deeper discussion and awareness of God and the Holy Spirit. -what really satisfies the human... Heart. Love.
