Love

Be The Very Best

Being a patient you learn the truth about some things and one of those things is that you really are supposed to put yourself first here on Earth. It is not being of the world, it is being in the world using the prophetic knowledge of our savior Jesus Christ, the smartest man who ever walked the face of the Earth. Being in the world is ok because Earth is our temporary home. Being of the world is putting tangible things before God.

There is no way we can serve with the greatest magnitude unless we love and take care of our selves first. If one doesn’t take care of oneself, one is not able to listen to the prompting of the Holy Spirit to serve for God. Like when people are mean or nasty to everyone. The Holy Spirit/God cannot be present, there isn’t goodness. So, the only way one is able to serve is to love thyself. That causes us to be able to hear God. Im not saying God doesnt use everyone for his work. I am saying that if you arent in a good mind, you wont listen to God, you’ll choose the wrong instead of choosing the right, and it is because you are not being love. Therefor, you are causing yourself to be alone without the ability of discernment and not in the presence of God. It is your choice. One cannot love completely with out having the presence of love in your heart. The same as the presence of God. You have to allow love in first in order to love your neighbr

You love others as you love yourself. Matthew 22:39-Love your neighbor as yourself. You have to love yourself to love your neighbor properly. That scripture has multiple meanings. It also means you are going to treat your neighbor the same way you treat yourself. How good do you feel after a warm, relaxing bath? That same good feeling is how you will treat your neighbor; in a relaxed and refreshed manner.

John 15:12 This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. This tells how to love our neighbor and also gives us a clue on how to hear God when we are needed to serve for God. Jesus said love just as I love you because he is giving us a short parable. Love so I can talk to you and you can hear me. 

It really bothers me when I make a decision that is good for me, then it makes someone else mad. Trust me, I’ve been accused of being selfish. Others may say, “go ahead, I know it is all about you, I know.” Then stomp away. I am not going to let it bother me any more. Just because I am an individual with different needs does not mean I don’t care. It does not mean that I will step on people to get what I want. It means that I am trying to improve myself and it has nothing to do with any one else but me. There is not one person in this world that is exactly like me. I will always work at loving myself so I can love others. Isn’t that the first step to wellness?

When you leave yourself behind, you get sick.

DO NOT LISTEN TO PEOPLE WHO MAKE YOU FEEL LESS THAN YOU ARE OR WANT TO BE. IT WILL MAKE YOU SICK.  REMOVE THEM UNTIL THEY CAN ACCEPT YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE. BE PATIENT AND PRAY FOR THEM. WAIT FOR THEM TO COME TO YOU. WHEN YOUR PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED AND IT IS PROVEN THEY CAN LOVE YOU AS THEIR NEIGHBOR, LET THEM IN. YOU CAN DO AND BE ANYTHING YOU WANT. ALWAYS TRY TO BE THE VERY BEST AND BE LOVED CENTERED.

Just as Jesus Christ said to do, follow Matthew 22:39 and John 15:12.
.
If you havent understood anything i wrote remember this:
THERE IS A WHOLE FAMILY OF PEOPLE WHO WILL JUDGE YOU IN THIS WORLD. THEY ARE NOT LISTENING TO GOD. THAT MAKES THOSE SAME PEOPLE BITTER. THOSE PEOPLE WILL NEVER TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE RIGHT NO MATTER HOW MUCH GOOD YOU GIVE YOURSELF OR SPREAD IN THE WORLD. DO NOT WAIT FOR ANY ONES APPROVAL. THE ONLY APPROVAL YOU NEED COMES FROM GOD. JUST KNOW YOU ARE DOING THE BEST YOU CAN AND DO NOT FALTER FROM YOUR PLANS TO BE A SUCCESSFUL, LOVING SERVANT OF GOD.

I hope this made sense. Lately I have noticed that I am scatter brained and it is flowing over into writing.

The Box at the Front Door

I use Amazon all the time. My account is set up. It is easy and simple and I get quality product at my doorstep. I even get free shipping. I like to use 6pm for buying clothes and shoes, occasionally. My account is set up. It is easy and simple and I get quality product at my door step. I use other sites too, but these two are the ones I use most often. I’ve used swim outlets, running stores, cycling stores. They all have the same things in common; I have an account. It is easy and simple. I get quality product at my doorstep.

If I can go on line and click a button without having anything tangible in my hands, and know without a doubt that I will receive the product, I should know immediately that a prayer will be answered?

The store is like God, it has everything I need. The account is set up, he knows me. There is a button to click, so all I have to do is ask. My product will be at my door, so I believe, unwaveringly, that my product will come. I ask myself what I want. I seek out my desire. I click (sounds like a knock) a button. Then I get what I want. All I have to do is wait. I know what I want is coming. I don’t even think about it again until, BOOM, there it is right in front of me, at my front door. Boom; oh my gosh, yey, I have what I ordered. Now that is service.

If I can trust these online stores and not waiver. Then surely, I can trust God will answer my prayers. That I only have to ask once. Only one time. No need for repeats. God will answer the prayer because God is Great.

Faith takes work. Believing. When a prayer is answered, it will be better than any online store could offer. Sometimes items are returned. Answered prayers are never returned. It is because they are designed specifically to be greater than what was asked for. Answered prayers are greater than any box at the front door.

Inspiration For Obedience

I needed a darker back ground for my phone. It is because with a white back ground I can’t see the date or whether the phone is charging.  I decided  to seek out quotes that had a gray of black back ground. I found a quote with a darker back ground and it is written by one of my favorite people. The quote is by Dieter F. Uchtdorf. I am pretty sure he is from Germany. It seems that every quote he writes or every book he writes speaks straight  to me.

It is amazing how many countries that my church lives. It is amazing  how many countries our missionaries can go to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is also amazing how many caring and educated men lead my church towards the foundation of Jesus Christ. It is amazing how many giving, smart, caring women that teach and give their time for children an all women and their families to rise above the temporal world to live righteous lives. For that I am extrememly thankful for.

It is not easy being LDS in an environment where children grow up seeing propaganda in their parents church or they have parents that teach them only what they want to teach. One time, I actualy picked up a pamphet written by Charles Stanley that was propaganda and I had the church remove any type of propoganda from the front foyer. I’ve been told I do not celebrate Christmas. Although the whole existance of my church is based on the gospel of Jesus Christ. I’ve been asked if I celebrate biirthdays. That I am completely confused about. I’ve been told I have horns. In my opnion I believe that many people in my area claim to know what the bible says but, when I quote the bible I am questioned as if I am trying to fool them. Even though I can literally find the passage. I’ve been accused that I believe that I will get my own planet to make babies for eternity and that all my church believes is that women are only baby makers and have to have perrmission from husband’s to do anything. I am equal to my husband and we become one when married. Notice I said husband, were are not polygamists! I live in an area where people read propganda before they will ask me any questions and then all I get, is what I call people posessed with evil spirits, arguing with me about religion which in my church is a completely unacceptable for members to argue about religion or how people should worship God.

My church is awesome. I am so grateful for my church that I actuallly well up inside. I don’t know what I would do without my church family. They try to understand or at least make a tremendous effort to show empathy towards me and  my situation. They would never shove people under the bus. They always help when anyone needs anthing. They show up at the hospital and give me blessings. They come to my house and give me blessings. I have two beautiful ladies that come to my house to teach me a lesson on faith every month and they are always a phone call away if I need anything. One time I called one of them because I was in a lot of pain. She rubbed my back until her hands hurt, she made me a PBJ that was so good {probably because it was almost 5 years since I had one}. Then she did all my dishes and of course said a prayer with me before she left. I love my brothers and sisters in Christ andd I know they love me and every single person in my family. I always feel safe and secure at church. Every child I teach is very smart. I know that every person prays for me and I know that they pray hard with a lot of faith. They cook me dinnner, bring the youth to mow and clean my yard, fold my laundry….they are just so awesome. I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder Day Saints.

I’m also thankful for my neighbors who find the time during the day to cook me dinner. I have a friend from another church {i do the books} who has taken me to every chemo appointment. Baby sits my little one. Checks on my 16 year old. I am sure she gives them a lot of comfort because she does that for me and my husband is thankful for the time she spends making sure I am alright. She has also cleaned my house, made me an omelet, folded and put away my laundry, and so many other things. She is one awesome lady.

My family is the greatest. Although the therapy can make me tired, grumpy, and angry; I hope they reailze that they are the most important people in my life. Including my mom, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Ryne had to grow up very fast and take care of me and his brother. He is really great and wise beyond his years. I tell Parker everytime I feel better and he always comes to me with “healing hugs”. My husband is a hard man to read and he is very difficult to talk to understand. He is just not like any man in the whole universe. I can see his heart softening and when I say , “I love you,” I mean it more than ever before. He tries so hard to handle work and me and kids. I can imagine it can be quite stressful. This is why my darling daughter got us gifft cards for dates. Which are needed so much. One more thing, my husband gives the best hugs and kisses.

As always, I know that having the “C” word allows patients to see the true colors in other people. I know who are true and who are not. I’ve learned that these people need to be appreciated and prayed for and that is what I do.

I am happy where I am and as Dieter Uchtdorf said, “Love is the measure of our faith, the inspiration for our obedience, and the true altitude of our discipleship.”

I want to say thank you to every one who has helped me. Your loving gifts, in any form, have abolished fear and doubt and bring me to an uplifted state; which is where I deserve to be.

Thank you with much love,

Jenny

This is my articles of faith. Maybe they will offend you. Maybe your heart will be softened by the kindness of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.

2 We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam’s transgression.

3 We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.

4 We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.

5 We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.

6 We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.

7 We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.

8 We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

9 We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

10 We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.

11 We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.

12 We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.

13 We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

I just love you

Through out the years
My capabities were questionable.
Couldn’t do anything right.
Getting by on just looks really isnt a way of life.
Now, I am capable of everything.
I can still be whatever I want.
words of wisdom guide my life.

You look out for me.
Ah you just love me
Chocolate candy kisses.
Oh you love me.
Kiss me and I know your love is real.

Every evening I take a walk
Checking out the town.
Trying to find that special friend that cheers me up when I’m feeling down.

Then you find me, I see it in your eyes, your expression gives me butterflies.
You just love me.
I am the luckiest girl.
With an honest man.
You just love me.

It’s because you love me and you bless me so much.
You give me what I need and so much more.
I’d follow you everywhere.
I love the gifts you give to me.
I just love you.

Ease Contention

Something short:

When one comes into a conversation with contention, leave the conversation with good intention.

Remember, contention causes irrational thinking and a lack of heart.

The only way to ease contention is through prayer. ~ jenny

The void before the spark

Before there is a spark, there is a void. The good spark is the good thought after the void and before creation. The good spark involves feeling a need for a change. The good spark is not a creation. It is the good feeling we get before a good idea. We are made to feel first then react. It is the ignition switch to create. Without silence/void, there cannot be thought. That is how we move between thoughts, by the instance of a void.

Read Genesis 1:2-3
Genesis 1:2-3(KJV)

2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Silence moved God, God noticed it was dark. Before God made light, God thought, then said let there be light. The verse makes it seem that God doesn’t think. However, God does think. God saw something dark and made it light.

Another instance that we humans are in the likeness of God. Not only in spirit but how we think as well. God is good so naturally God made light and saw it was good. Then rested, the silence before his next thought then creation.

There is a void between every thing that happens in the universe. Silence first, then thought, then creation.

What you do with the Spark is what matters. That is your freewill. Get comfortable with the void, feel it, be moved, accept the void. Get to know peace and know God loves thinkers. Then release Good Sparks/thoughts, then create with actions/words, and watch your creation of “Good” spread.
