"If" you have been a follower of my post, then you may understand how weird I can be.LOL!
But for all of my efforts and intentions, they are meant to be as positive, humorous, or inspirational as possible although my post at times may not be coming across this way to some folks.
But the fact is, that others misinterpretations have very little to do with me
So many things that folks, unfortunately, choose to participate in things or with people that are disturbing to them in some way.
For many, they keep coming or going right back to the very same things that they find disturbing. So this is the reason why I made the statement that it has very little to do with me. Or with other People, Places, and Things that disturb them as well.
I also make many typos in my post at times. But I have been trying my best lately to slow down and proof-read. But my mind races, and I find it difficult to catch them all. Even when I review and edit my post many times.
But for those who do enjoy my stories and my dear friends who accept this about me, they tend to overlook these errors and still enjoy them. Thank You!
Although for some who cannot tolerate mistakes, that frustration can serve as a "Distraction."
Which is the topic of this story-post? Being "Distracted from the Good" by only seeing the perceived Bad. And what is perceived as bad may only be in many instances the person's attitude and perspectives.
"If Your Looking For Something To Be Wrong,
Then You Are Bound To Find It"
For example. Sometimes when I make a story post, like now, and as you will see below, I choose to use Upper Case Captial Letters. Why? Because I just felt like it.
I have had on occasion a "disturbed" individual that has replied to me that when I do use Upper Case Captial Letters that it....well...it disturbed them. And so they feel compelled to tell me that they didn't read it because I did.
Ummmmm? ugh? Ok. Feel better now? Really?
Well if that were the case then that person completely missed the message that had been intended to be useful, helpful, funny, enlightening. or whatever could have been beneficial.
A Person having disgruntled feelings from the expectation of anything in life, for things to be the way that that it should be, according to them, is almost always leaving a human being. on some level. "Disappointed".
And having certain expectations that lead to disappointment is yet again a whole other post for another time. But for now on with this post.
And we begin.
Never Lose Faith In God! Just When The Darkness Seems To Prevail And All Is Lost.
When Your Hopes Seems To Fade And Diminish Into Defeat That Is A Distraction.
And When All Your Efforts And Energy Become Weary And Weak From The False Narratives Whispered In Our Ears, That It "Does No Good, No Matter How Right And Just You Are. This Is The Most Common Tool Of The Adversary.
The Enemy Of God And Humankind. Whose Purpose Is To Distract Us All From The Good, And From All Of Our Accomplishments And Achievements too.
It Wants Us To Have "Doubt" In Our Own Faith!" The Seeds Of Doubt Planted In Our Minds. But We May Be Distracted Because We Are Not Alone With God. Even In A Bustling Crowd Or In Chaos We Can Be Alone With God.
The Enemy Wants Us To Be Blind To Our Progress, Blessings, And Privileges. The Grace That Exist Everyday In The World And Bestowed Upon Each One Of Us!
But This Enemy Is Not More Powerful Than God Is. No, It Is Not! Bit It Would Have Folks And Even Some Christians Believe In Fear, That The Enemy Is Equal To God.
It Would Be Foolish For Me To Ignore The Enemy Of God! But Even More Foolish To Recognize It "Before" I Give My Will And My Life Over To The Care Of God.
And If I Am Able To Securely And Confidently Believe In The Love Of Christ Safety And Divine Guardianship, Then I Most Certainly Can Walk Through The Valley Of The Shadows Of Death And Fear No Evil. For I Walk Alone With God.
But It Is Very Clever And Influential! I Cannot Be Angry At This Enemy For Doing Its Job And The Reason God Allows It To Exist.
Because This Enemy Only Has The Power That I Too Allow To It To Have Over Me.
I Know This To Be True In My Life! We All Do, Who Believe In 100% Faith And Belief. Whether We Falter Or Sin Daily, That God Is Omnipotent, Infinite, Eternal And The Ultimate Creator Of All Things.
Therefore In Constant Contact, Openly Or Subconsciously (not fully aware that were are) Through Habitual Prayer, We Are Always With God And Living In The Truth And Power That Protects Us From The Enemy.
We Are More Likely To See And In Deep Gratitude Appreciate Our Blessings One By One. We May Then Throw Away That Long, Long, List Of Personal Regrets. What I "Coulda, Shoulda, And Woulda" Done. But I Didn't.
Yet Another Clever Distraction. We Often Set Ourselves Up For Failure. How? Well, By Perhaps Settings Our Goals And Standards Too High Or Too Fast Or Too Much For Us.
One Day At A Time Is Keeps Us In The Advantage Position Where Can See Our Progress And Then Can Believe We Are Achieving Our Goals.
Yes, another story for another time. But actually, you can find those topics in my story archives.
Now That We Have A Better Faith, Then We May Want To Make A New List!
A-List Of All The Really Positive Influences Of The Good That You Did For Yourself, Of Others And Even In Society.
The smallest things that you may not consider Big but are. Did you say something nice to uplift someday that perhaps they really needed to hear? You may never know. There are literally hundreds perhaps thousands of good deeds and actions that we do every day!
Ya Know If We Can Recognize Them They Add Up! What Positive Impacts Are We Having On Others? What Are We Leaving Behind In The Wake Of Our Presence?
Our Adversary Is Not Pleased Needles To Say. However, Even If You Didn't Meet All Your Goals It All! An "E- For Effort!"...Tomorrow's Is Another Day, That Is If There Is Another Tomorrow. LOL!
No, That's Not A Terrible Thing To Say, Just Reality And Facts! Since Nothing Last Forever On Earth And Another Tomorrow Was Never Guaranteed In The First Place Right? So I "Live" Today Like There's No Tomorrow! Woo Hoo!!
But Don't Fear It. I Don't Fear Anything Until I Am In Fear. Say In Fear For My Life Of Course? But So Far (Thank God Almighty) That Has Not Occurred.
But Its No Secret I Do Put My Self Out There Sometimes And Ruffle Some Feathers. &$%@ Happens Folk's Good And Bad! So Is Your Glass Half Empty? Half Full? Or Full Of @^%$!! LOL!💩
What's That? You Can't Come Up With Anything Positive That You Do? Not One Good Positive Thing!? That Is Even More Evidence That The Adversary/Enemy Is Doing Its Job. And Well I Might Add!!
This Negative Force Enjoys Sitting In A Lawn Chair With A Nice, Tall, Cool Glass Of Fresh Lemonade While Watching Those Who Promote Chaos, Destruction And Division Do Its
Job For It!
So Why Does This Deceiver Of Lies Have So Much Power? If It Needs No Assistance From Us? That Exactly What Its Purpose?
It Has No Interest In Going After The Anarchist Or The Depressed, The Angry, The Unhappy, etc. So What And Whom Is Its Target?
Well To Use All It's Strength To Go After The Faithful Of Course! Those Who Have A Positive, Realistic Optimism Embedded In Their Cognitive Outlook Even Amid The Darkest Of Times! Like Right Now!
The More You Turn To God, The More Of A Target You Are!
But What Can We Do Together That Works? And Always Works If We Work It?
Knowledge, Awareness, And Recognition Are A Winning Strategy Folks. That's Why Knowledge Is Power! The More You Know, The More Prepared You Are, And The More Likely To Keep Yourself In The Advantaged Position!
Remember This Word. "Options!" The Very First Independence Bestowed On Humankind! "Free Will"
The Choice Of Right And Wrong! And If We Do Wrong, Then The Option/Choice To Learn From Wrong Is An In Opportunity To Learn What Is The Right Things Too Do!
We May Not Always Do Right. But Now We Know The Differences. Now And That Makes Us Knowledgeable, Aware And Responsible Too. For Our Own Actions And Choices.
Every Time I Or Any Other Person Reaches Out With A Message Of Hope. Inspiration, Encouragement, Empowerment, Or Any Other Kind, Loving, Motivational, Healing Or Supportive Message That We May Share From Our Own Experience That Gives Us Wisdom.......
Then The More People The Message Reaches And Influences Hope.
So Now Back To That Positive Check List.
Heat, Water, Air Conditioning? check.
Family, Friends, Family, Love, Security? check.
Well-being, Emotionally/Mentally/Spiritually? check.
Arms. Legs, Eyes, Ears? Over Health? check. check and check
And What Of Freedom?
That Should Bring Some Light To How Truly Blessed We All Are.
Lets Us All Pray (if you choose to) To The Lord, Our Savior, Jesus Christ, For All Others Who Do Not Have These Precious Gifts From The Father, The Son, And The Holy Spirit.
And I Proclaim This Unapologetically, In Hopes That It Does Not Disturb or Distract Anyone From My Intentions Of Sharing Solutions Through Love And Kindness.
Even Though I Have Days Where I Just Want To @$#^ At Some Foks And &*!@& And Then +@*% And.......oh I am so sorry. I haven't had lunch yet and get a lil cranky. LOL!
So I Will Now Conclude This Novel Long Post By Pointing Out Simple Human Propensity.
When We Question Why God Would Allow All This Disturbance To Occur ..Then That Should Be Even More Evidence That You Are Being Distracted.......
I Mean It's Ok To Want To Know Why?, Just Try Your Best To Not Let It All Distract You From All The Beauty In The World All Around Us As We Speak.
Mountains, Streams, Forest, Children Playing And Laughing, Family Meals, Blue Skies, White Fluffy Clouds, Green Grass, Flowers, Animals, Art, Rainbows, Music, and on and on and on and on......
These are things that God Made. What You See On The Nightly MedAllowance To Let Our Human Egos To Be Influenced By The Enemy.
No, It Is Not Complicated, But rather Very Simple. In A Childs Faith. Let Go And Let God. You, Will, Feel So Much Better. I Promise. Yes, I Just Made A Promise. Trust In God And See.
Thanks once again for letting me share! Peace Out!
The City of Hitchcock is located on Hwy 6 in Galveston County 10 north of Galveston and 30 miles south of Houston.
Hitchcock is a city in Galveston County, Texas, United States. The population was 6,386 at the 2000 census. Hitchcock was created as a station of the railroad between Galveston and Houston in 1873 and around the turn of the 20th century became a vegetable shipping center. The settlement's economy crashed in the 1930s after insect plagues in the surrounding areas, and the area stayed impoverished until the establishment of both an anti-aircraft training base and the Hitchcock Naval Air Station at the beginning of World War II.
