ESSAY-LIKE SUNDAY MORNING: Ultimate Power

24 Sep Featured Image -- 1214715

God is the Ultimate Source of Power. I plug myself into the Lord’s Universal power to receive energy!!!

The Time Tunnel

The lesson today was marvelously taught by Sister Johnson who inspired some lively discussion today; that is, until we were quieted by the bell of the Sunday School Superintendent. The lesson was entitled, “ULTIMATE POWER”. The Scripture was from the book of Isaiah 40:21-31. The KEY VERSE was verse 28 which reads, “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom (NIV).

The lesson’s INTRODUCTION told us of the “remnant”—those Israelites who remained after near destruction by conquering armies, some say, as punishment for turning away from God—some even chose to worship powerless idols instead of an OMNIPOTENT—all powerful—God! Lunacy!

Now, they faced imminent judgement. The sad thing is that, this judgement had already been predicted and the people warned but they failed…

Beauty from Broken Pieces

17 Sep

Isaiah 61:3

New King James Version (NKJV)

3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

I don’t hide in the shadows any longer. It was a conscious decision, although at the time I didn’t really know what that meant. My memoir was published a year ago. I went from no one knowing my story to letting the whole world know my story. It’s more than a story, it’s my life, my truth. It’s true that I don’t lay out all the sordid details of my past in my book, and very few people in my life have earned the right to hear all the details, but, I share enough of myself and the resulting struggles I have with PTSD that I’m comfortable with the volume of my voice and that I’m being heard and making some wonderful connections.

I still struggle every day. It’s the way it is for me. Fall is a particularly hard time of year. Now, instead of pretending all is well while feeling…

My Promise To My Readers

13 Sep

Same here for me. The Triggers and flashbacks are still with me. Just when you think all is well then Boom!!

CynthiaBaileyRug

I’ve noticed an interesting trend with this blog.  When I write about my mistakes, failures or struggles, my blog gains more followers & views.  My recent post about a bad C-PTSD day gained me quite a few more followers & a lot of views.

 

I believe this is because people are tired of people who claim they’ve been completely healed from their past, saying all you have to do is pray & believe, & God will deliver you completely from your past.  People who are completely delivered from their pain are in the minority, yet they are the ones most in the public eye, it seems.

 

The problem with this is it makes people feel like failures.  It sure did me.  I felt like I must not have enough faith or I was praying wrong.  Maybe because my experiences weren’t as bad as some other folks’ God wasn’t…

Why Did I Become a Muslim.

27 Aug

May we all submit to God and spread God’s Love All Over the World!!

My Spiritual Interpretations of the Quran

Perhaps this is only information for me to keep to myself. But seeing the way the world is the way it is, I feel it is our intentions on revealing the truth that will lead us out of the lies and illusions of this world.

Many times I ask myself deeply, why do I even label myself as a muslim?  I after all, am not ethnically from this region of the Middle East, Africa, or Asia where Islam spread to originally. I am as Northern European as one can get with Celtic druids in my ancestry.

So, WHY am I a muslim today? Because it simply means “submitter to God, or servant”. A long time ago when I learned who Jesus was and his immense character and sense of morality, I made it my point to become like him. As best as I can. Jesus was on another level as…

The Value of Friendship

6 Aug

Timely Blog Post. Spoke to My Heart as I’ve been going through some issues with one whom I thought was a friend who has now been downgraded to acquaintance.

Untangled

So much has been written about friendship; from the trite to profound, but the truth is we (the human race) are a gregarious species. Our survival is dependent upon living in cooperation with others. Part of that living in cooperation is making and having friends, and that is sometimes easier said than done.

As I have been traveling down this healing path, I have had to ponder the question of friendship more than once. Sometimes, I was trying to discern who was no longer healthy for me, because they fed the fuel of my tendency to be taken advantage of by narcissists. Other times, I was un-friended by those couldn’t deal with the fact that I was suffering from PTSD, they just couldn’t handle it.

I pondered four questions: What is friendship? How do friendships endure? What’s the difference between an acquaintance and a friend? And how much do we need…

Faith is like Wi-Fi, it’s invisible, but it has power to connect you to what you need. Faith makes things possible. The Almighty Lord of the universe always gives us what we need in time. Fill your heart with FAITH in Allah and it will become the most peaceful place on earth.

semras 45

The best of mankind is my generation, then those that follow them and then those that follow them. Then there shall come a people after them who will become avaricious, who will love gluttony, and who will give witness before they are asked for it.”
