I have been through serious ups and downs throughout my life. I would always put on a smile but was really crying on the inside. I conformed to the people around me just so they would like me. I was seriously insecure and a people pleaser. I was so shy and quiet in high school so when I got to college I was determined to be different. I became more outgoing for sure but I got into drugs and alcohol. I hurt many people around me and my depression and shame skyrocketed. But I truly believe every single thing that happened in my life was meant to happen to bring me to where I am right now—every person that came into my life was meant to be there to change me and themselves. Some people in this video are not in my life anymore but I am so thankful they came into my life at the moments they were supposed to. I am so grateful for the people in this video who are still in my life. This video doesn’t contain all of the people I love so much in my current life, but it has some of them. Today I am learning who I really am. I’m finding that I am actually shy and quiet but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I’m learning to love myself. I recommend making a video like this of yourself to see how much you’ve grown over the years. It’s very encouraging. I love you all♥️ Song: I’m not perfect by Lori Martini

Very Happy Spot

“Before Him will be gathered all the nations, and He will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And He will place the sheep on His right, but the goats on the left.” Matthew 25:32-33ESV

On the Xapity social media site, a follower posted his recent dream:
‘People will milling around, when a strange sound started blaring. The people ran into a church. Some people had one kind of spirit on them. Others had another kind of spirit. As he watched, there was an old man with the different spirit being zapped out, leaving everyone with the other kind of spirit behind. Following this demons ridiculed and tormented those left behind.’
The man relating this dream said, he was left behind.  When he awakened, he knew, not everyone attending or working in churches were going to be raptured at Jesus’ return. Many think, ‘I go to church, pray, tithe, I’m good with God.’ But are they?
Are we?

We think all is well. But finding out, you’re not making the rapture won’t won’t be a pleasant discovery. After all, church attendance gives people the illusion, we’re fine with God, got our love on.

Nothing is as important to me as my relationship with Yahweh. At first, I was buying ‘fire insurance,’ avoiding hell. After these forty plus years, I love Lord God so much, He’s my ‘very happy spot.’

Blessings come from being Jesus’ sheep. i.e.
Seated in authority—“…He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, …God, being rich in mercy, …even when we were dead in our trespasses,…and raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,” Ephesians 1:20, 2:4-6ESV.
Seated in protection— “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.” Psalm 91:7ESV
Seated in preservation and deliverance— “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me.” Psalm 138:7ESV
Seated without fear— “For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” Isaiah 41:13

In our text, Father God was separating ‘sheep’—‘close-followers,’ from ‘goats,’ ‘fringe-followers.’ Understanding the goat mentality doesn’t register with me. These are those who won’t give over their lives completely to God.

Matthew 25:34-39ESV “…The King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? …when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? …when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’’ Sheep were so busy being like Jesus, loving even their enemies, they didn’t even notice, they were serving Jesus. Rewards weren’t their goals. Loving, helping, supplying, giving were their normal outflows.

What is flowing out of us? In this pandemic, per Facebook— judgment,  speculation, anger, injustice, hatred, jealousy are flowing everywhere. God wants us to let love flow, very difficult for me. Can you? It’s your choice. You choose.

PRAYER: Lord God I need help, we need help to have an outflow of love. Please do through us, what we can’t do for ourselves, in Jesus’ name I pray.

Is it just me feeling so blessed after this episode ???? My God it was so good, I loved all the parallels so much, I loved the construction of Ocyoza’s family. All their love and care for Hope and for eachother. I just loved it, Marie was so good at representing how grateful Octavia was for finally coming out of the dark, but her longing and desperation to show Bellamy that she understood him and that she changed. I continue with my thoughts that Octavia need not be ashamed by her dark phase, they all did and still do shit, but I understand that she is just the girl under the floor and that hunted butterflies whose world had always been seen through the eyes of her big brother. Anyway … I loved the flashbacks, the parallels with Gabriel, Hope and Echo … I loved how devoted and loving Hope is for Octavia and how much she misses her “Aunt O”. Is it too early to ship EchoHope ?????

We’ll never finish exploring the immeasurable vastness of the heavens and depths of the earth’s foundations. But we can stand in awe at the complexity of the universe and trust the maker of the moon—and everything else.
