Be Perfect?


Be Perfect?

Life can be so very hard at times. And there is great suffering in the lives of so many, here in the states as well as around the world. Many question why? In the book of Lamentations, God is questioned again and again as to why he brings such suffering and misery into the lives of those that ignorantly walked out of their union. In the end the answer is to return to this unity, to return to trusting God, returning to the understanding that if you do good to those you around you, you will recieve good yourself. To better our lives we must first understand that we will have dificult times, and that we must be able to not allow our hard times to brings us into the pits of hell (ignorant suffering). We must truly know that even our suffering, even our hardship, is perfect work that will ultimately lead us to a place where we walked again, not after our vain imagination (believing our ego is in control), but we walk after the path that has been predetermined for us. The path that has been set before us will not always be an easy one, but if we truly understand it is a necessary part of our growth and we don’t condemn ourself when we allow it to get to us, then we will find our suffering fade away, and our hope increase. I hope you enjoy this simple video I did last night, and it reminds you that no one in this world was perfect (as we know perfection to be). So don’t beat yourself up, be encouraged, you are here reading this, you are in this moment exactly where you need to be, which means, you haven’t messed anything up. EVERYTHING REGARDLESS OF HOW YOU HAVE PERCIEVED IT HAS BROUGHT YOU TO THIS MOMENT! Without your past you would not be who you are today, now it’s time to move past your past, and embrace and be thankful for the moment. Peace Jacob

    Great work Jacob when we are in tune with ourself as to who we truly are then and only then can we help others become in tune with themselves and know who they really are. After all we are all one in the kingdom of our Father.

    John 17:21-22
    21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
    22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: (KJV)

    This video for some reason seems like one that I can watch over and over…Coming at me from many sides, then I must face each side with full attention. Jacob I heard some life giving truths in this video. When those truths are spoken and heard, the sea rages no more. I heard a man say once that Jesus walked on water to signify that all that man thinks will destroy him or even kill him, Jesus has put beneath his feet. Now why am I wearing shoes?
