Rules, regulations, is there anyway to trap him, the more laws, the more traps, those used to controlling others, have raised the interest of the Almighty, well, a loving father does at times, look in on the progress of the children, there being, so many weird minds out there, even in Heaven they notice, those sly tricks, the little habits, the about turns, the choices, the thoughts we have, the hair is a mess by the way, not a complaint, an interest, the way we view the world, crossing the road, the head back in focus, traffic, the cars whizzing by, is this why we experience events in life, some awful, why, a man see’s a building blow up before him, a woman races across the road, is mowed down in day time traffic, what is the result, what did we experience it, this constant flow, everyday.
Jesus sighs Solomon, the Spirit is a living thing, never dies, amen, mind your soul.
The steps, what do we do, how do we follow Jesus. The bus stops, the man gets on board, the trip, he is going to follow Jesus. The tour begins, how is the state of your heart, the voice over the P.A. announces, the man looks around, notices, he is the only one on the bus, so it’s me your talking to. The heart, he thinks of his heart felt deeds, how he thinks of his neighbors, his judging of others, does he, then the ache, do others judge him similarly. The heart passes the test, anxiety eases as he continues on the trip. Following Jesus, how do we get it, do we set up a score card and count our shots, is it that simple, are we too late. The voice over again, do you let scorn and anxiety take you over, does it consume you, the thoughts you have of others, is this your focus point. The man on the bus shakes his head, what’s the meaning of this, I just want to follow Jesus.
No thoughts, the man is speechless, he thinks while the fields pass by, waves to the occasional cow, he is thinking, reflecting, wondering, self examining, the bus driver smiles, at least he is listening. The man can’t think, it’s as if an alien entity has taken over his mind, well, that is the feeling, your life invaded, those thoughts, all self needs, all self desire, all self will, all consuming, it is hard to think of anything else. The bigger this the better that, wish i had this, that too, more, prefer that, looks great, what, the drift from the thoughts of Jesus, how self absorbed we become, sometimes a need but not a way to live a life, unless, well, there are exceptions.
The bus driver getting no response to the prompts, stops the bus at a shop. The man decides to leave the bus, and go on foot, in his dream to follow Jesus. The lesson, a simple one, the seeds and what we water them with, what is it that we want to follow, the image of the man, or the meaning of the teaching, in short, you follow Jesus in your deeds, it’s the action, amen.
Solomon smiled; the gospel of Jesus Christ shown to be true, what does that mean for mankind?
The judges listen to the evidence, every effort made to cause a miscarriage of truth, or what they call truth, the defendant flounders under the barrage of questions, his own lawyer looks on with a disdain that supports disapproval, how can we win this, the door opens, the other judge walks in, so this is what faith is like in 2022, they add up the bits, the plus the minus, are our habits that odd, the cover ups, we’ll cover for you, keep up the act, poor consolation, eternity is now real, the accommodation issues, the thorny one, the evidence continues, the judge looks on, what are the appointed ones doing; measuring everybody?
Every few seconds, the thought process at work, analyzing, working out, the human computer, the space in the head, depressed, tired, over worked, frustrated, worn, the head is down, the bank statement doesn’t look good, the mortgage is due Friday, the loan is due Tuesday, time for a time out, the thought in the head, thought. The color of the dress so and so wore, the happy environmentalist, the state of the environment, you wonder, the thoughts, the insecure feeling, add in spying, the world is full of ideas, there is corruption of thought, the sowing of doubt, the stakes are high, our habits at stake, can we keep this up, will we, our thought, the signs from above, the morning of the crucifixion, the sudden changes, the same thought today, the world changing, you just want to hang on, steady the thought, the figures gone south, the super intellectuals speechless, no thought on the subject, how thought does so much. The shop, the routine, the glance at the hygiene products, which ones can i use, can i afford them, the thought, the thought, did anyone consider it like this, the world at sea, the navigation lanes busy, the choices few, the thought, we better get this right, amen.
Solomon sighed, so much living was done in the head. The living words of Jesus, it’s a doing thing, the new understanding of Jesus, the conduit to the Father, the truth about Jesus, the reality of eternity, not thought, but with the miraculous, one thought worth hanging onto; The wisdom of Jesus and the how it impacts on all who believe, action not thought.
The healer wakes, light is showing, the curtain slightly off, a bar of sun runs through the room, five minutes the healer says, then time to get up. Stretch, thought, the day, what’s in store, the to do list, a run through of what is basic, before the serious business of healing. The kitchen side board is cleared, the area cleaned, the mixture assembled, the cake, so many ingredients, once together and in the right oven, the results are assured. The cook prepares the cooking tray, greases the base, the implements are cleaned a few times, after each use, the cook is busy until the area is cleaned again, while the cake matures in the oven. Two hours later, the oven door opens, a plume of smoke escapes, along with the sweet aromas of cooked fruits, a prick with a needle, ten minutes more. Three hours later, the cake is sliced while the tea is poured, then everyone digs in, the cook just smiles.
Healing sighed Solomon, you need to be prepared. You would not attend a wedding looking like a tramp, in the same manner, when you seek healing, you must prepare and believe from the start, amen.
Reasons, why this, the circumstance, the repeat, so many explain why, so few come up with solutions, as if we spend our lives trying to justify ourselves, rather than look at ways of improving life, is it so. The expert explains, a lack of this, another expert lobbies for something else, self interests, the box outside, forgotten of. Solutions, there are so many crisis out there, easy to explain, when it’s solutions. Jesus arrives, the local believers, those of God, believe him to be a warrior, a man to run the Romans out of Jerusalem, Jesus, the man who will avenge the nation, a man with the solutions. When they hear him talking peace, love, forgiveness, spiritual well being, they are confused, the leaders see their power usurped, Jesus now the threat, solutions, this man is costing us money. So they plot to silence Him.
The mass killing, the outcry, solutions; in what context would you carry an assault rifle; the answer; in a theater of war, amen.
. Mother Nature. Have you heard of the girl with the sun on her skin,Who can make flowers grow with her light from within,And she runs through the world leaving life in her wake,With blossoms all lining the path that she takes,She must be quite shy for she’s never been seen,But she’s what paints the […]
The motorway, the six lanes, the beginners with an experienced driver, the wider lanes, faster, the speed of the machine, the danger, how we organised. Gun lobby’s rules, the money supply, the voices, the arguments, the tragedies, the old debate continues, do we or do we, contentious thoughts aplenty, how does it get sorted, do we have an answer for it, that is based on wisdom. Solomon listened to the news, the innocent deaths, the fact that the victims, most so young, adding to the angst, it could have been our child, the emotions on fire, much said, as in olden times, not much done, Solomon sighed, it’s a matter of words.
The theater of war act, when do you need to use these weapons; the answer, in a war zone usually, Solomon sighs, allow these guns or armaments to exist, in theater’s of war, well, who can complain about that?, you don’t need to see the logic, but it explains in words, how our emotions can get the better of us, when wisdom is totally ignored, amen.
