Descriptive Attributes of God
“And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran.” (Acts 7:2)

There are seven beautiful descriptive attributes of God mentioned in the New Testament. The first was used by Stephen, who called Him “the God of glory” as he gave his defense to the Jewish council just before he was martyred and indeed “saw the glory of God” (Acts 7:2, 55) himself as he finished his testimony.

The apostle Paul later called Him “the God of patience and consolation,” while urging his fellow Christians to be “likeminded one toward another” (Romans 15:5). In the same chapter, he also called Him “the God of hope” in a benedictory prayer: “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing”…

The Heart of Christmas (The Movie)

Hello my readers! Happy Boxing Day (Day after Christmas, which I hope you all enjoyed).

Have any of you watched a movie that came out about 5 years ago called The Heart of Christmas? It is a 100% true story about Julie and Austin Locke and their son Dax who was diagnosed with Leukemia when he was still a baby and spent 18 months at St. Jude’s hospital getting treatment and other forms of care. He was born in 2007 and barely made it through Christmas and barely made it to New Year’s Eve in 2009.

The story moved me so much when I was watching it (just finished watching it), I looked up his name and found a foundation site in his name/honor and donated what I could give right now. If anybody at all is interested, here is the site address:
The objective here with this foundation is to raise money for the kids currently being treated at St. Jude’s and for any child who will need to be in the future, since it is what I believe will be a permanent foundation in this little boy Dax’s honor. I know many of you are struggling financially like I am, but even a dollar would help! And you can do a 1 time donation then just go back when you can afford another dollar or more. No one has to donate, but I hope at least some of you will! And watch “The Heart of Christmas” on Netflix, or rent it if you do not have Netflix. Well okay I spoke my peace. I know many of you have loving and open hearts and that is why I am posting about this. At least that is what I understand it to be for. You can read more about it on the web site I gave the link to. Also, if you haven’t yet watched the movie, I suggest it because it is inspiring to see so many moms watching their children struggle with cancer and still having so much faith, hope, and joy and the way they all band together to support and love one another through the ups and downs. 
It kind of makes me feel guilty for my struggles with my own faith in the Lord when these families featured in the movie (especially the Locke family and the 2 mothers and their daughters that Julie Locke connected with while at St. Jud’s) had endured far more pain than me, watching the life of their beloved little ones fading slowly from their eyes and false hope that later led to greater pain when their child died (well one of them did before Dax did, I do not know about the other child). I struggle with depression, anxiety, asthma and allergies that are bad and induce the asthma problems and chronic aches and pains probably from the depression. But I cannot help but wonder if I had the amount of faith these women did even when things looked bad for their children’s health/life, if most or all of my health problems would disappear and I could be healthy and whole (in Jesus). Fear is what I am pretty sure has been the root cause of my depression and anxiety, but I daily study my Bible and when I am not super sick I go to church on Sundays. I missed 3 weeks in a row due first to bad headaches from the depression, anxiety, and a messed up sleeping schedule and then the last 2 Sundays because of a bad cough from either the flu or some awful virus one of my nephews got from a sick kid in his pre-school. He then gave it to his twin brother (my other nephew), their mommy (my sister), their nanny, and me and got better for a while. Then he (the original nephew who got sick) drank from my water when I told him not to because I was sick and he’s been coughing and sniffling again. So I think my brother-in-law and my visiting father (visiting from Vegas) are the only 2 not sick (and hopefully it stays that way since my sister and nephews need to be cared for in their sickness). I do not feel confident about posting any more about this right now because people who do not suffer from depression or anxiety do not seem to understand or even want to try to understand what it is like to be me with all my daily struggles. What I will say is, I pray to God, in the name of Jesus, for Him to take my mustard-seed faith and use it to help me overcome all of the sickness and struggles and to overcome all my trials and tribulations with my small mustard-seed faith and come out the other side healthier and stronger and a shining example for others who need a shining example of the Lord in their lives to help them.
God bless the whole entire Locke family for how deeply they moved me, and so many other people too. And God bless everyone taking the time to read this! If any of you have even a dollar ($1) to spare to Dax’s foundation, I hope you will consider donating! Every dollar counts! Goodnight and once again, God bless you all!
Remember, It is more blessed to give than to receive.Acts 20:35
P.S. If there is anybody here who needs prayers, I am a prayer warrior and I have seen my prayers for others be answered in the most amazing ways!!!!!! I love you all and so does Jesus, and We are here for you! Amen!

Colossians 2:15 tells us that Jesus has disarmed and despoiled Satan and his kingdom. The only weapons Satan has left to him are his lies, but they are no match for the truth of God's Word.

The Difference Between Laziness and Inability To Do Something

The Difference Between Laziness And Inability To Do Something

There is a huge difference between being lazy and not being able to do something. Laziness is when you have the ability to do something but don’t do it at all, or try to get someone else to do it for you. When you are unable to do something, it is usually from lack of resources (i.e. health insurance/dental insurance, money) or it requires physical action a person is not currently able to do. And there could be multiple reasons such as injuries, physical sickness, or emotional or mental health problems (or spiritual health problems, or all of the above).

So before you go around accusing someone of using excuses not to do something, make sure you have all of the facts. Just because you cannot see someone’s illnesses or pain does not mean it does not exist! Would you tell someone who was paralyzed (whether temporarily or permanently) “Get up out of your wheelchair and walk! Don’t be so lazy!” ? Would you tell someone sick in bed with a 104 fever, “Get up out of bed and go to work!” ? Most likely the answer is no. Don’t jump to the wrong conclusion that just because someone is not currently doing something that you think they should be doing, that they are lazy, irresponsible, stupid, or selfish, or “making excuses.” Either take the time to learn information, or, if you don’t want to gain understanding, keep your mouth shut. People who have invisible illnesses and invisible pain have enough problems and struggles to begin with without you making them feel worse by spewing your insensitive and uncaring crap all over them.

This applies whether you follow Jesus or not. Although if you do follow Jesus (are in a soul-saving relationship with Him and follow His ways), then it goes against His will and His way to be unkind, judgmental, discouraging, rude, or uncaring. The first two commandments are “Love the Lord Your God (the One and Only God) with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. And the second commandment is equally important, love your neighbor as yourself.” (Mark 12:29-31) And Jesus goes 1 step further in John 13 and i5, where He tells us we must love one another the way He loved us. (read John 13:34-35, 15:12-14) He loved us enough to die for us. So we must show Christ-like love for one another and find ways to lift one another up, and help each other out when we need it. Only Jesus has the right to judge, and it is only to Jesus we are each accountable for what we do, or do not do.

If you know someone who is suffering from depression, anxiety, or any other invisible illnesses or pain, educate yourself on whichever disease they have and learn how to help them instead of judging them, or leave them be if you don’t want to be informed on what is going on with the person or how you can help them.
