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

Present Suffering? – Video

Present Suffering? – Video

We all go through hard times. Some worse than others, but pain is still pain. When we suffer it feels like there is not point. We have been told by many religious leaders that if we do what they say, follow their particular faith, give money, etc, that we will be free from illness, financial trouble, emotional distress, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth. And it is the TRUTH that sets you free. Whether it was Jesus crying for God to take his cup of suffering away, Paul who said, he would rather die than stay in the troubles of this world, King David who was constantly crying out for death and deliverence from his enemies and pain, Jonah who cried and prayed for deliverance from the belly of hell (The great fish/carnal imagination), the many barren women of scripture, Joseph who was beaten, thrown into the pit, made a slave, falsely accused, imprisoned, etc, we see a pattern of God’s chosen suffering. Yet, because of all they wen’t through many were brought to know the truth about God, and in the end they all realized “No present suffering could be compared” to the glory that was revealed because of it. Because of everything Joseph went through he was prepared to rule all of Egypt, and the same is true for us. We don’t know what tomorrow holds. But we do know that God is in control of it all. So every tear we cry, everytime scream, every heartbreak, every hard times has a place and a purpose. And when we understand that even our suffering has a purpose then we can embrace our cross knowing that our pain last for but a moment, but our purpose will stand for all of time. This video is a reminder of these things, I pray it gives you hope and regardless of what you are going through, you will understand these things aren’t happening TO YOU, they are happening FOR YOU! And in knowing this, you will overcome and walk in the excitement and hope of what is to come because of it all. Much love Jacob

With crayons in hand and paper beneath
The young girl creates her beautiful masterpiece

With blotches of yellow, black, blue, and red all over the place
With scraggly hair, eyes that don’t match and an oblong face
A sky that is purple and grass that is brown
A nose colored so red, it would be better suited for a clown

The child draws with nothing but her imagination around
It is a gift for her father, to turn his frown upside down

Without the ability to spell, there are three x’s and three o’s for Daddy to see
A token of her love and appreciation this great masterpiece will be

The child does not worry that she cannot spell or draw straight lines
She does not care if her composition is lacking and is she appears color blind

Her art is her gift and she knows it will make Daddy smile
Times have been hard, he’s lost job and been out of work for a while

She didn’t feel pressured to be perfect, or worried she might not succeed
She only wanted to show Daddy that he is all she will ever need

He sits at a table swallowed by bills,
His head hangs low and is very still

She takes her picture to him and holds it out with great care
“Daddy, I made this for you” she says with a wide-eyed stare

Like a fire lit in his eyes, he takes her gift and to his surprise
After looking at this picture he suddenly began to cry
In that moment there was something that he realized
He may have bills, he may struggles, but he has something money could never buy
He held the picture to his heart, and Daddy finally smiled
