The three plus years this page has been running are a demonstration of change.
In the beginning our desires for the page were built upon helping out the homeless through the selling of books, and maybe
The reality we desired then never really developed as we wanted.
We are still busy putting books out there and our motivations of helping the homeless have expanded.
We never came by resources to help the homeless on the scale we wanted to, but we will.
When I presented my thoughts in the beginning, I cared about things I considered as passions.
Today I realize those passions were for my own satisfaction. The motivations I desired weren't bad
they were just not in alignment with being humble.
My political passion is dead. I'll vote and participate in my duty as a citizen of our Great Country.
In as much as I spent time thinking on how badly things were going and even presented explanations for the reasons....
I can't do it anymore. It is a chronic exposure to poison. I am certain of very bad results coming from the Hypocronance of our people.
There is nothing I can do about it except watch it unfold while preparing myself for disaster.
For me I have learned the choices I make for myself bring nothing but trouble.
When I focus on the teachings of Jesus my life is more rewarding.
The above realization is written easily, but let me assure you that the work needed to know the difference
is the most difficult I have ever taken upon myself. I'm sure that folks spend fortunes in money and time over their lives
in therapy seeking what I have found without actually being rewarded with the desired result I possess.
The convictions I held at the pages inception have not been lost or exchanged. In fact the convictions I held then
are strengthened and altered for the work done. Previously I stated my case and realized frustration for the rejection of my finding.
Today my piece is more refined, more truthful and I know a widespread acceptance is even less likely than it had been previously.
As of late, I have invested my time working with individuals. What is surprising is that a few of them have made mention to me as a Pastor.
You won't hear me taking the title of Pastor, or Minister for myself; I can't even stand the thought of such a reality. Tracy just smiles
at the potential, I think she knows something I don't yet know.
Quite honestly I'm fine with being a disciple of Christ. I sleep better at nights, I have few regrets that lend me to a self loathing for being a disciple of Christ. I'm not quite sure what is in my future, but I sure do know what the future of the world is and tomorrow is only the beginning.
There is truthful need in this world and then there is invented need in this world. The invented need is about to be demonstrated through these occupod
gatherings we'll see throughout the nation and globe. Invented need is nothing more than aimless rage meant to distract the consensus of truthful reality. Most of the occutards live in denial, demanding a presence of global focus thinking what they do will make a difference.
Their actions will only contribute to chaos of a secular wisdom.
If we are to make changes in our world we must find those who will gain for our collective efforts. We must being willing to listen to their concerns
and address them practically. Our Steel becomes sharp when we forget ourselves in the helping of others. We are great as a nation because of the sacrifices given by those which came before us. We aren't great for living in today's denial. Without knowing a greater source than ourselves
we will only weaken our strength.
Our country is in the middle of the most important choice it will make as a country. Many of my friends are living in terrifying fear of what is coming.
Other folks I know don't care. Even fewer have no fear and do care deeply for our condition. All things of the natural world have to die or come to an end. Believing anything else is folly.
Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
Sharpened Steel demands an avoidance of worries and a service to those that have need. Some will listen, many won't. The trick of service is to
discern who'll gain from your efforts. We may only plant a seed. Although the germination of the seed is by your hand, the cultivating may fall to another disciple. This is a truth of God's mystery. That is how God's plan works. By the way, humans aren't the only tools God uses in seeing to His plan, but it is pointless to mention them for those who don't believe.
Christians who worry about conditions of man without being mindful of God's word are those that suffer terrifying fear. Those that don't care will likely remain the same. It is those in the middle that need the hope of Jesus' salvation. That is where God's blessings will be given.
