The four harsh truths that everyone in my generation needs to accept


Hopeannfaith:

Getting on with your life.
Our young are withering from the taunt of the entitlement dream. Dying slowly listening to a world that tells them, at once, that they are not worthy, yet someone, like their parents, owes them posh living and high wages for little work.
What our youth need to hear, from one of their own … a must read for the 18 to 30 somethings.

I’m a young person.

A ‘young adult,’ supposedly. I’m married with two kids and back problems, so I don’t necessarily feel like it all the time, but I do fall into that coveted 18-34 demographic.

As a young person, I take special note of all the bad press we tend to get. I’m sure you heard about the 18-year-old woman (not kid, not child, not teenager — woman) who sued her parents to force them to pay for her college tuition. She lost the first round in court, but you can bet that we haven’t read the last of this sordid tale.

I’m sure you’ve also heard about the various studies and reports, released every few months it seems, confirming and reconfirming and confirming again that people in my generation are very reluctant to move out of mom and dad’s house. A report this past summer found that over 21 million millennials are…

Explaining Matthew McConaughey’s Confounding Acceptance Speech

Explaining Matthew McConaughey’s Confounding Acceptance Speech

Hopeannfaith:

Amen and praise God! Alright, alright, alright!

Originally posted on Entertainment:

What exactly did he mean by all that?

After winning for his role as Ron Woodroof in Dallas Buyer’s Club, Matthew McConaughey launched into a semi-bizarre tale about his inner life. Here is what we learned:

1. He needs someone to look up to, something to look forward to and someone to chase.

2. He wants to thank God, who he looks up to. God is all about gratitude.

3. He wants to thank his family, who he looks forward to. His deceased father, he believes, is celebrating with a big pot of gumbo and a can of Miller Lite. His mother, still with us, taught him how to respect himself.

4. The person he chases is himself, 10 years into the future. He knows he will never catch up, but he wants to find out who that guy will turn out to be.

5. To all of that, he…

HUMBLE EGO TRIP?


Hopeannfaith:

Which side of the Cross are you on?
The side of the Law? Or the side of Grace?
What is past is past … and the Law has been fulfilled, let’s get on the right side of the Cross: Grace.

Originally posted on juliesramblings:

            I remember thinking, during a worship service, how grateful I was for the cross.  I was imagining myself standing at the bottom, looking down at his blood, and feeling so very overwhelmed with my own unworthiness.  In the midst of this tremendous emotional drama, I heard in my mind (in my own voice…like a random thought) the words, “You are on the wrong side of the cross.”  It caught me up short!  What?  What does that mean I thought, wrong side?

            At the time, I didn’t realize the importance of that statement.  I understood that it meant that I needed to get into the forgiveness side of things, but didn’t really know what that meant.  But, I knew it was the Lord.

Most of my Christian walk (since 1975), I’ve felt unworthy or less than.  When I was first born again, I didn’t…

It was certainly our sickness that he carried …


Certainly our sickness he carried …

The Lord opened my eyes during a message at church 2 Sundays ago!

Revelation! I have gone a bit deeper into my relationship with God! And once again it’s about healing, and healing is for all of us!

We were saved by the Grace of God, through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus, who died for us, so we would be reconciled back to the Father, our creator. So much is revealed in that run-on sentence.

He was despised and avoided by others;
    a man who suffered, who knew sickness well.
Like someone from whom people hid their faces,
    he was despised, and we didn’t think about him.

It was certainly our sickness that he carried,
    and our sufferings that he bore,
    but we thought him afflicted,
    struck down by God and tormented.
 He was pierced because of our rebellions
    and crushed because of our crimes.
    He bore the punishment that made us whole;
    by his wounds we are healed. ~ Isaiah 53:3-5

Now I’ve known and truly understood, to the best of my human thinking, that at the moment of our salvation we were healed. Were healed … not going to be, not better when we got things right! Not something that would occur at some obscure future date; rather something that happened thousands of years in the past …

Our healing was; already.

So why do I still take blood pressure and heart medications; actually, why am I taking them at all?

Basically because while I understood the concept of our healing, I hadn’t grasped that my healing was already complete. I hadn’t grasped that the seeds of my healing were deep within my spirit only needing me to plant them in my heart and believe.

You see the Word is the seed ~ the Heart is the ground ~ the Believing is the water.

Oh and Jesus is the Son.

The revelation was simple really … If all ( and all means ALL) of my illness, diseases, aches, pains; ALL our, yours and mine, sufferings were carried to the cross upon the person of Jesus Christ, then all those sufferings cannot be upon me or you.

Just like our sins, upon Salvation, that gift given so unconditionally by the Grace of God, all our illness and suffering was swept away on the waves of Jesus’ shed blood.

By the wounds of our sins and diseases, carried to the cross by Jesus, we were healed. Never to suffer again.

And so I learned, in faith that Sunday, two weeks ago, that I just need to wrap my head around the fact that if Jesus carried my illness and disease to the cross and died from my afflictions, those same illnesses, diseases and afflictions CANNOT be on me!

Like my sins, those illnesses were payed for and all I have to do is wrap my head around it and be whole again.

No strict diet or exercise plans … no self inflicted regimes to follow and fail at.

Christ Jesus, on that cross so long ago, said it was finished and He meant it! Illness and Disease were finished!

So my Pastor gave us a task to follow. And like all those other lessons by faith over the years, it is a mantra … something to put in my heart, over and over again until it is simply a thing I know for sure.

My mantra for every ache and pain, for the obesity, for the heart and lungs, for the joints and cartilage … for anything that is in or on this body that is not of God:

Jesus died for this obesity so therefore it is not on me, it is not mine. By the grace of God I’ve been healed.

Jesus died for this headache, therefore it is not on me, it is not mine. By the grace of God I’ve been healed.

Now you fill in your blank …

Jesus died for this ________  therefore it is not on me, it is not mine. By the grace of God I’ve been healed.

I’ve been praying these things, and others for the last week or so, and I feel better.

My friend said I seem to be losing weight again, and it’s apparent in my clothing. Don’t get me wrong I’ve been making an effort to eat better, and I’ve used the stairs more, but nothing extensive and nothing near diet or exercise.

You might say that it’s those things, but I know this: By the grace of God I’ve been healed and why would I want to knowingly do something that would jeopardize that? And the word said I could eat anything that He has said was okay … and He says the food I eat is okay (Acts 10).

Jesus did this for all (and all means ALL) of us. And by the grace of God we’ve been healed.

It is done!

I encourage you today to delve into the Word and find your Salvation and your healing. Delve deeply into your relationship with God and just bask in that unconditional love He has for YOU!

Jesus died so we could enjoy this reconciliation.

Father God sent Jesus for us, because He desired to have us by His side!

So … what’s on your __________________. What have you been healed of? Let me know in the comments, I so desire to know you and your experiences with God the Father, Jesus The Son and Holy Spirit.

God bless you.
