So put Christ first each and every day, chose to follow Him and do what is right seep His kingdom not yours and see what happens.
 
you will still have the world around you but you don’t have to be caught up in its trap.

Ever plaid the computer game Sim Farm?
i became very successful playing it you build a farm one acer at a time, you till the land, plant, fertilize harvest and sell. As you make more money you purchase more land, plant or seed, equipment, and buildings and storage for your produce and grain. And then duplicate the whole proses over and over It just keeps going and eventually you either become dedicated to it with your time or your crops decay in the field, it all depends on how dedicated you were to build and develop your farm.
 
Our relationship with Christ is the same, we can choose to be dedicated to developing a strong relationship or we can chose to only spend a minimum amount of time and effort on the relationship. If your desire is to have a fruitful prospers life full of rewards, love, joy and peace you will dedicate your time and effort to the lord. If you are just looking for the occasional meeting with the Lord, He will be there but your life will be intermingled with the world and its ways.
 
So many games are like life but life is really not a game; our actions, reactions, and responses to the things in our lives determine the outcome just like your moves in a game determines its outcome with life when we get to the finish line there will be a Y in the pathway on one side it will lead to a small gate and the other to a vast abyss, you will be evaluated as to how you played the game what side you were on and you will be told inter in at the small gate my good and faithful servant, or depart from me for I never knew you and you will be sent down the wide path to the vast abyss.
 
Jesus said we are to in the world but not of the world (and be not conformed to this world) we are to live by the rules of God if we want to win the race we are on, not man’s rules.

Jesus told us that He did not come to destroy the law but to fulfil it.
And then went on to let us know that the law goes far beyond the act of doing or not doing something, it goes deep and involves our words and thoughts, our thought life is of great danger to us.
 
What do you spend your time thinking on (meditating on) work, movies, music, play, what you have or don’t have how you can better your income our position in life?
Or do you go through your day speaking with the Lord, asking Him to guide your footsteps, to direct your path, to make you the blessing to others He has been to you.
Are your thoughts good and up right or all about you and how to get ahead in life?
 
Jesus said the greatest commandment is to love the Lord your God with all your hart, mind and soil and the second is to love your neighbor as yourself.
 
Some people when i see them i think do you really love yourself that little, and some; do you really hate yourself that much. Look in a mirror and be honest what do you see; a love of the world, tolerance, disgust (for self or others), discontentment, worry, grief, hate? Or do you see Jesus; love, joy, peace?
 
Guard your eyes for what they see, guard our ears for what they hear, guard yor mouth for what it speaks for these three are the quickest to form thoughts in your mind and those thoughts will influence your heart either towards God or against God.

Matthew 5:13
¶ You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.
Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
 
Jesus is speaking to you. You are the salt of the earth; YOU if you have asked Jesus in to your life and you confess to men of being a Christian then you need to check and see if your salt has any savor (taste). Salt is a healer it hurts in a cut but it heals and preserves.
No matter how week your life may be as salt if you have even a speck of savor left the Lord will use it, and your life can still be a blessing to Him, others and yourself and just like when you came to the Lord the first time bring what you have and allow the Lord to use it.
 
Jesus goes on to say you are the light of the world; YOU are the light of the world and He speaks of not hiding your light but letting it shine for the world to see. At work, school, or play do people see the light of Christ or the darkness of man in you?
Have you hidden your light Christ placed in you for so long that your eyes have become a custom to the darkness?
 
Are light is like that of the moon have you seen the moon when it is full and so bright it lights up the night, our lives are somewhat like that we should be reflecting the light of Christ so that even in the darkness of glume and despair in this world we shine out, to draw the world to Christ even as a moth is drawn to the light.
 
Then take in to consideration you are salt and light, you have the ability in Christ to draw those out of the world and to give them healing words such as “Jesus loves you so much He was willing to die for you.
By the way you live your life they will be drawn to either the Lord or the world.
 
So go shine on someone today be a blessing, be a guiding light, let them hear healing words.

Saturday i wrote a bit about where are faith and trust seem to be miss placed on doctors instead of the Lord.
 
i truly think this is just the tip of the iceberg, and just like when you walk in to a dark room and hit a light switch you don’t think about the light bulb coming on you hit the switch and just go about doing what you were doing.
 
i believe that in our lives we have become so accustom to the things and ways of the world that we are most of the time not even aware we are partaking in them, that we have taken what the world says and expects out of us to be the right thing for us to do and live.
 
i believe this saddens the Lord because it takes Him out of most of our daily life and replaces Him with want and need. Jesus said if we will obey the Father and keep His commandments seek Him and His ways He will provide ALL our needs, in Matthew Jesus tells us that He will supply our food clothing and shelter, and from what i have found in His word is that He has also provided what we need for good health, (that is not to say we will never be sick or get heart) we will be because of the fall of man, what i am saying is that He has placed on this earth what we need to but in to our body’s to give our body’s the opportunity to heal its self, plants and minerals. But instead of having our faith planted in the Lord for health for so many it is planted in the pharmaceuticals and doctors instead of the Lord.
 
i have seen over the years that man thinks an education is the key to a good life and so many have gotten sucked up in to collage and the gathering of information. And aging the Lord is left on the back burner. When true knowledge come from the Lord why do we go to man for it?
 
i have even know men who put more faith and trust in their job rather than the Lord, putting there family and their walk with the Lord on the back burner so that they can “get ahead in this world” to only find their family is falling apart and their getting head has put them in a trap.
 
Don’t get upset and walk away from this take the time and look at your life evaluate what you are doing and why you are doing it, and in it are you trusting the Lord or are you trusting in something the world has told you.
 
The Lord created us to have fellowship with Him, yes because of the fall of man we now have to work but that does not mean we have to get so entwined in the world and the worlds ways that neglect the Lord.
 
The next time you turn on a light think about turning on the connection between you and the Lord “it is called prayer and we are to be in communication with the Lord 24/7 365 days a year not just at meal time or Sundays, it is to be a daily walk, a walk that is more important to us then life its self.
 
No matter what is going on in your life today take the time and ask the Lord for wisdom, guidance, direction and that He would show you His wishes for your life.
 
Go with the Lord and He will go with you, put Him first in your life and He will direct your path.



Hodgepenny

As time went on He just sat, knoqing, knowing what no one else seemed to know.

But staring in to the red leave's He knew spring was on it's way, and that His life would go on as He reflected on the Love He had felt.

And that no mater how the lonely streets desended upon Him He would continue to shin, as He sat their He could be heard sining softly to Himself,   This little light of mine.

Hodgepenny's philosphy has always been take care of home first, only give to those who are truly in need, never, No never take anything that you have not earned. always spend as much time with the Father ae you can, for His love will guide and keep you through all things, and this will make your life better than great.
