I sat quietly this past Sunday morning and watched a television show hosted by a famous personality, which she had a special guest speaking of vulnerability.
Ugh....okay so I am going to be a nasty critic. Maybe it is because I'm 50 now, and I see life in a different perspective. You almost inherit this attitude of "paaaleezze people" attitude, you are full of it. There are so many women in their tribes out there online hissing words at us like vulnerability, bliss, joy, yadda yadda. Honestly I am so over the word thing...even some of my artwork I sold has such things on it; and sadly I really do not want to give the impression I am on board with their soul train. I guess I am blissed out. What worries me are the conceptions or perceptions about God and what God is that they are representing. I'm not a big believer on tell it to the Universe and whap it will come back to you. I pray to my Lord, Jesus Christ. I hope that women do not get confused on who to talk to - God our Lord Jesus Christ or the Universe.
Jesus is the truth, life, light and the way. I am not trying to please "self" and get hung up on "me". I want to please God, and I want Him to feel joy with my choices, and trust me there are not always the greatest of choices...I tell you it's a age thing. In my 40's as a young unaware trying to be christian girl I was all over stuff like that. I was all about enlighten me, but now I know it simply isn't truth. The only phrase that you will probably hear me using is Be Still. That to me is important to be still and listen to God; not self. Scripture says always be full of JOY in the Lord! Rejoice; now there is a great word. Ladies be careful of what misconceptions someones art may be telling you. You've seen the art with ladies painted on the canvas with these words of what they feel is wisdom about them. I just ask you to be cautious what you soak in. I want your souls to be fed, but with the breath and words of Christ not the "universe." I invite you to stop by She Reads Truth to read just that...the truth. It is a wonderful daily devotional that is real and truthful.
There are many many things I am still learning please don't get me wrong; I will never ever be perfect by any means, nor do I want to be. But I want my soul to be right, and to be in joy whether life is good or bad. Asked in church yesterday was the question from Christ in Matthew 16. "Who do you say that I am?" The television show I watched said God was not catagorized; neither man nor woman just a open space of matter i.e. "the universe." To me my God is just as Peter said "thou art the Christ, Son of the living God. It is your choice what to believe; but my heart wants you to choose the right path. Hush and Be Still, listen to our God. ~ Mark 4.
FYI: I'm on Day 34 of my fast from Facebook & Instagram....it has been enlightning, difficult, lonely, and happy all in one. I will connect again when my discipline is over. But will be careful which connections I reconnect with.
