As someone who has lived far too long, with those whom I loved having illness always playing a role in my life, I believe I can say...that illness can either draw one closer to God, or call us away.
Prayer for those we love, is of course a way of keeping the person whose ill, in our thoughts and good will for their hopeful recovery. But for those who are the care takers, a person who is in constant need of attention because of thier ills,can take us away from our God, in the constant need of the other.
Today, I choose to keep my thoughts on Christ/God. Today as another crisis has been presented to me, I choose to focus more on Him, than on the illness which seems to constantly draw me to attend to it. Knowing full well, there is nothing I can do, to heal or help. Knowing full well , that all the care is being given the person who is in need of His healing. And that this time is better spent on keeping my thoughts on the only person who can truly give anyone their daily life!
So today, I will give all my thoughts to Christ. I will seek His counsel, rather than rush to a place where all I will see, is a bed and my loved one in it. Instead, I will look to my God, as those around him are doing what they are trained to do. To help God heal his body. I will write these words, rather than focus on what I can not do, to help him regain his strength. And as those in whose charge it is to care for his well being while he again needs tests taken to determine what it is that is expressing itself, in his constant need for suffering..I will seek Christs mercy, for him. I will ask that whatever it is, that my loved one needs to learn during this time, he can learn with less pain and physical suffering. I will seek Christs help to understand that God doesnt give us suffering, it is our separation from him, that does. And with this understanding, I will pray today, that my loved one , lean on Christ for all he needs to understand. So that his illnesses will no longer be needed for him to grow greater in his understanding of Gods purpose in him.

We are indeed creatures of habit. I am a nester at heart. Change is always happening around me, but my nest is secure in His Heart.
So today when I was able to get back onto Belief-net, I felt as if I was indeed, again Home.
I have been writing my thoughts and feelings regarding my relationship with my God/Christ, for more years now than I can even remember. All I know is , that when I write HERE, it does in a way, feel like home.
The illness of a loved one, took me away from here , so that I could give him the needed attention required, to help him hold onto He in whose life, we all commend our spirit too.
He still has a way to go, but he is closer to home, than he had been two months ago.
So thank all who prayed us through the darkness of the valley of death, for he indeed was at deaths door.
All Glory to He who continues to give us life, for His purpose in us..so that we in our marriage can grow closer in understanding Christ as the Beloved. For without Christ as the center of all our lives, we will never have the fulfillment our Souls need to experience, as the purpose of our being..
Thank you who knew and prayed, and all who love to speak here about Christ, even if no one ever reads your words...

The shrewed mind can weave its way out of the weeds, by filling its listeners with tons of information, much of which, has little to do with explaining a truth. It can stealthly dodge with cunning the facts which would reveal what questions asked are seeking. It can create diversions, so convincing, that to the willing believer, will convince them, it is a solid truth. This mind can keep itself, so far from what it fears will expose it, so that although it seems as if it is telling you all there is to know, it will never be responsible enough to admit or accept even a modicum of responsiblity.
The shrewed mind, can get around any issue, and because it is quicker than many of its followers, it is accepted as being intensely smart.
Those who know the difference between the Mind of Man, and that of Christ, could never equate, much less define the Mind of Christ, as smart, or shrewed. Those who dont worship the mind of the earth, know how the decievers mind works. It always avoids complete truths. In fact it perfers to dazzle you with half truths, deceptions, sins of ommision, than coming too close to that which will anhiliate it...His TRUTH.
Christ is Absolute Truth. The Mind of God emitted Christs light, as the Truth. As Word of God. And the word of God is Truth. It is Absolute. And within it are the eternal truths. Truths that can be expressed in mans Souls as principles, and virtues. And in a mans character, as principles of value. Both held and stored. These virtues are inspirations of the Soul. Which, when drawn upon by man out of commitment and love for his GOD, become the Godly Character a virtuous man.
Something no man would call cunning or smart. For the Mind of Christ has no real relationship to that of the Intellect. Its why all the questions in the world, asked by unbelievers will never fulfill them. For the Mind of Christ was not formed, nor does it have a need for defensiveness. Nor is its truths filled with knowledge needed for life on earth. It doesnt have a need to use certain tactics, or prove to itself or to others, it is right, or smart. It fears not!

“Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:21
Why is it we waste so much time, in vain attempts at understanding Christs words? We waste time in believing we will be judged, when it is we who are doing the judging. Is it not what a man says that tells you what he believes?
Remember Christ told us, it is not our place to judge another. And those who truly believe in Christs word, know full well, we place more judgement on others, than see if we do the very thing ourselves?
Judgement on a man, will be no different than the judgement he placed on himself. And it is that judgement, which will be what separates ourselves from Him. Judgement of others, leaves when we choose to change what we see, to decernment. Awareness that man is seeking His perfection, with the time released understanding of his God.
All everyman needs to know , and focus on is, where he places his treasure?
Do you choose to seek fulfillment with that which is seen as material treasures of the earth? Or are you a man who seeks the virtue of God, as your goal? Are you a man who loves life so, that your heart is open to all who seeks entry? Isnt that too, a Godly goal?
Or are you a man, who gets his heart tested, to insure its a healthy as it can be. Yet are you that same man, who never tested the health of your hearts capacity to love? Are you more concerned with the beating of that muscle, than working on its full capacity to LOVE!
Without Christ, we are 100% less, than who we were meant to be. Without the Love of God, we will bring anger to the very people we say we love. Without the treasure of Christ in our heart, we have not yet learned what it is to LOVE. Without Christ, men seek to buy coins to fill their bank accounts with gold. But with Christs love in our heart...we have treasure beyond any price man can afford!!

Our Government asks us every election, what kind of people do we want to be?
And for the next few years, the values the earth believed is of importance, becomes the political agenda of the time.
As individuals, we also ask a similar question? What is the purpose of my life?
Governments choice of values, can never reflect the values of the whole. Therefore it becomes easy for us to see, they are the values chosen by men, and can be bias, and even at times, against the values given us by God. Yet they are done, with all good intentions, as they progress ,(not aways in the right direction, towards God) but towards what the world believes are the needs of men.
What we have done, is to allow government to do our work for us. To love ones neighbor, now doesnt need to include our neighbor next door. Nor our parents, or our workers, or our fellow man. We can ignore them, not even know their names, but we are forgiven, because we can vote, in the way we wish to treat them!
No longer does love thy neighbor, need to be applied from an inner perspective. Or as something that requires a change of character by the individual. And because we have lost that purpose, we can see its results on any politica partisan blog. The government in time of our choosing which values we want written into law. Uses the very tactics no man would, had he truly be a man of value! No man who claims to love his neighbor would stir up such hate, to than say, its all for our common good?
Somehow we allow ourselves to show the worst part of ourselves, to then say we want the best for our people? And as these same politicans write laws, to abandon HATE SPEACH, they use the very thing, they want us not to do!
What I have come to realizs is, that "winning" an election means is that the winning party in power can now enforce the values they want enforced, down the throat of the losing side!
And this is done in the name of loving ones neighbor!
Government does do some good. But because it has the right to enforcement, it can never do in TRUTH the work GOD asks. The difference between the good done on earth, and the good expected by GOD from men to reach Heaven, is never on His part an enforcement of power. The good that is GODS, is given to each man, as his good character. It asks each man to live in truth, the mind and heart of God. Not out of fear, for Christ said, "be not afraid", nor does God urge man by threat of rule of law, but He urges MAN by the good conscious he has given him, so that he may learn Gods LOVE!
Christs GOOD, cant be a paritisan issue, for that is the duality of man. And that is indeed our biggest clue! God never seeks to separate us, because it is in HIM that we find ourselves whole..
The all GOOD, is a state of mind, and when we can see from that state, than the TRUTH is indeed SELF EVIDENT! And can be seen as the same, by all!
Christ never asked for His Kingdom to be built on the earth. If He wanted to be President, He could have established Himself, President of Israel. Israel, like Christ's Conscienceness, is a state of mind, as well as a place on earth. He wanted His people to reach His state of Mind where there is Peace..
And thats the difference between governments and GOD. No matter how much those on earth want it to express His Kingdom, the earth will always be a place where men will have dual values, that will always be at odds, of one man or another.
Christs Character, is alive in certain values and principles, that only men who commit to them, will reach His state of Mind. And they have little to do, with protection of the earth, but all to do with the Soul that unites us to His Heaven.
When He told us we must love our neighbor, did He tell us to bring it before the Roman Government, so as to put it into law?
When He spoke of love, did He see (love) as a VALUE? And that when we say we love our neighbor, could He have meant, value him, as we value ourselves?
How do we today show we value another? Do we make use of Christs WORD? Do we know our words intentions? Do they respect others as we respect ourselves? Do we project thankfulness, for all we have in every word we speak?
Should we seek to bring His GOOD WORD to a pagan, who seems to be happy in what he believes? Or should we bring it to a pagan, by our good example, more than our words? Wouldnt the best way to bring Christ into the world, is to live His values, and keep His principles...which validate Him in our every word.
But in how we live them? How do we apply His word into our lives?
We must use His words ..when He said He was TRUTH. Do we speak the truth or do we cover the truth, for fear of being rejected? Do we speak the truth to our family, our friends, our lovers? Or do we hide the truth, so that we look better in the eyes of men?
Love is TRUTH, for without TRUTH, no TRUST can exist. And without TRUST..Love will never be the ROCK UPON WHICH A FOUNDATION BUILT BY GOD CAN EXIST.
