Learning On Faith

Learning On Faith

I am not who I once was. I am not even the same person I was when I began writing this sentence. With every word I write on this page, I become someone new. New thoughts emerge. New ideas blossom into keystrokes on the keyboard. They, in turn, move into words, and thoughts, and phrases. 

It has been said that every day we are learning. I believe that is true, but I wish to break it down further. Every moment we change. Every moment we grown and we learn. As you read these words new thoughts are emerging from you. Because of this one blog post you are now a changed person with more knowledge. You have learned my thoughts, if nothing else. 

Every moment is new from the one before. Every moment we grow older and often times we learn from our experiences. But will we ever experience the exact same experience twice? No. Time and learning marches on. Even if we experience the same situation a thousand times we are still different every time it occurs. 

Life is a series of infinite learning experiences. Although, in the grand scheme of Eternity, they indeed are not infinite. One day, we will have all the answers to our questions. Until then, we will keep on learning on faith. 

Lost Again.

Today’s Daily Prompt Word is Ghost and once again, I am lost on how to write about this word. I used to have a huge draw towards ghosts and the paranormal. I still enjoy things that are unexplained, but for me, ghosts are explained. 

In my honest, not highly educated on the subject, opinion, ghosts are demonic presences (Stacy, is presences a word?). God created this world and Satan really wants control of it. When a person says they have seen a ghost, for me, 99.9% of the time I can honestly say I believe it to be a demonic presence that is manifesting in the known world. 

Our world is full of things we know. Our world is full of the things we don’t know. And when we are truly honest with ourselves, we must admit there are things in this world, in our daily lives, that we don’t even know that we don’t know. Spirituality and how things really occur in God’s eyes is in this area. We believe in what we don’t see and we call it faith. 

We try to explain things so we can understand, but the truth is, we will never full understand every single morsel of everything this universe (or multiverse if you prescribe to that camp) has to offer. Ever. Only The creator can know all that and He chooses what to allow our human brains to conceive. 

All of the scientific and spiritual breakthroughs of the past few centuries were no mistake. And they were not out of God’s thoughts. There are things we currently know. There are things we currently don’t know. And, like I said, there are things we don’t know that we don’t know. 

I have changed a lot in my Christian Journey and if I am honest, I am not fully there yet. I still fail daily. Until I am so wrapped up in a relationship with Jesus Christ that nothing else matters except what He will have me do in this world, I am still learning. But, one thing I can tell you that He has taught me, ghosts are nothing more than demons Satan brings to entice us into a lower world where everything looks fun, sometimes scary, but we are enticed nonetheless. When we see something we really want to look into, we must ask ourselves, ‘Is this really something God wants for me? Or will it make me a ghost of my former better self?’ Satans demise will often be wrapped up in our greatest wants and desires and it is nothing more than a ghostly trap set to enslave us. Be careful of the ghosts in life, my friends. They can often trap you in a Devil’s Grasp. 

The Last Supper

Feast or Famine

Have or Have Not

Live or Die

Day or Night 

Black or White

Why must we ALWAYS live our lives in one of two extremes? It makes no sense! God has provided enough for all. God gave all in His Only Son, Jesus Christ. 

How about a new comparison? 

Greed or Grace. You either take more than you need or you give what you don’t truly need so others can have some. What’s wrong with that ideal? 

Jesus lived, died and rose again so we all can join in the feast. Are you willing to come to the table?

Sometimes We Smile.

Sometimes We Smile.

Sometimes the devil whispers in our ear, but we smile anyway. 

Sometimes the devil tries to convince us we are not good enough, but we try anyway. 

Sometimes the devil whispers to give up and give in, but we fight through anyway. 

Sometimes the devil convinces us we are frail and weak, but we fight through our weakness because Jesus is stronger. 

When we are weak, Jesus is strong.

When we are unsure, Jesus gives us peace. 

When we are at war with others, Jesus whispers turn the other cheek. 

When we have been wounded and are frail and weary, Jesus gives us strength. 

Seek ye first the kingdom, and even though this life brings pain and frailties and weakness, we can be made strong. 

A shepherd slew a giant. 

12 fishermen spread the gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide. 

A deaf composer composed some of the greatest music we have ever known. 

Do not fear frailty! Embrace it and see how The Lord uses you to bless others. 

Be Like Water, My Friends. 

Be Like Water, My Friends. 

Bruce Lee once was quoted during an interview talking about how water becomes the shape of its surroundings. It is smooth, and refreshing. 

But, I want to caution you against too much of a good thing. Even water, though it be smooth and cool, flowing like a river over time, it can erode even the harshest of rocks. It can turn the sands of time into dust. 

Be like water, my friends, but be careful to not erode the beauty and strong structures placed in your life for protection.

3 Days Of Quotes. 

3 Days Of Quotes. 

I was recently nominated by specscladeyes to do a 3 days of quotes. I am also supposed to nominate 3 other bloggers to do the same. However, I don’t know of 3 other bloggers who would definitely follow through with this task, so if you wish to join in the fun, please do so. I nominate all who may read this. 


We all have our own opinions and it is very rare to find two individuals who agree whole-heartedly on every option of every opinion ever formed by either of them. 

You are an original, just like everyone else. That is another quote I find amusing. And they go hand in hand. In my opinion, any way. 

We are all originals and no two people will ever look at anything from the exact same viewpoint ever. In order for that to happen two individuals of exactly the same height would have to stand in exactly the same spot in exactly the same position. Physics is trying to work this out through quantum physics, and yes, some particles have been found to do these traits, but humans cannot. 

We are each individuals with our own experiences and it is very rare that we believe we are wrong. Enter arguments. Enter reasons for battle. And mostly, enter the male ego! I am a male, so I can say that. You may have a different opinion, and you are wrong! HA! 

But seriously, one of the most funny men of comedy said this once and I found it deeply profound, true and most of all, funny. Laugh a little, my friends. Put down the opinions and shake hands, or hug, or just say good job, it’s more hygienic these days. But love each other. We all have opinions and we are never going to agree whole-heartedly on anything in this world until it is proven as fact, like gravity. Drop something from a tall building, it will always fall. We can all be right someday when the world joins together as one humanity. And that will be a glorious day we all agree. 

Circus. 

Circus. 

Spectacle

Circles

Animals

Cages

Whips

Cotton candy

Peanuts

Cracker Jack

Popcorn

Ring master 

Control

Twirlers 

Jugglers

Laughter

Clowns

Sadness

Fear

Acting

Lions

Bears

Elephants

Dreams

Actions

When I think of the circus I think of these things. It’s a lot like life, isn’t it? Some things are good and some are bad. Some we are meant to stay away from, and still others bring us in and we are locked. A circus is like that. Good and bad. But life isn’t meant to be lived as a circus. 

You are not under the control of one ring master coordinating a show for laughter and amusement. 

You have choices to break the chains and be free to not have to do tricks for others. You are free to enjoy life like the innocent child who sees twirlers and acrobats and animals that have a soul, be free!! 

A circus is a cage of illusions. Your life is not a circus but a wonderful thing full of unknown joys. Find that, like a child at the circus.
