Again I saw all the oppressions that are done under the sun. And behold, the tears of the oppressed, and they had no one to comfort them! On the side of their oppressors there was power, and there was no one to comfort them. Ecclesiastes 4:1

Being alone is never easy. Not for the rich nor for the poor. Not for the poor person in Spirit not the rich person in Spirit.

Do you think the person who is more Rich in Spirit is less lonely then the person who is poor in Spirit? Honestly after reading the above verse and if you continue to read the 4th chapter it talks more about it.

The point is that this is another reason of faith because truly it’s really considered all meaningless because of faith.

And I thought the dead who are already dead are more fortunate than the living who is still alive. Ecclesiastes 4:2

This to is meaningless however so true. How many times in your life have you felt so lonely you just wanted to die. Why would there be any reason to be on this planet with no one to spend it with.

I used to think this way. I used to be that person that wallowed if I wasn’t with someone for sure. It was one relationship after another.

Then I met some realistic people that taught me that it’s ok to be alone and really get to know who you are. Like YOU! In personal development and reading the Bible and of course my number one fan is GOD taught me just that. He taught me who I was made to be as well as to love myself for who I am. That was the beginning of this journey.

I think about the faith and how long this journey has been of so many things. For years I thought that yes it is better to be dead than alive.

As GOD was showing me more about gratitude and faith. To trust, to learn and understand the knowledge of the being the way the mind works when you are connected with GOD.

This is not easy. It gets easier, and what makes it easier is his love for you and I. Then there is the love that brings two people together.

It’s the state of mind that is connected to one source, one mind if you will. It’s a state of being that sends clear messages from both to the universe that comes back and connects the 2 minds together.

And though a man prevail against one who is always alone, two will withstand him-a threefold cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12

Now in this sense GOD is using this as what connects the 2 minds to one. In which is the universe. That’s the unity of the of the souls. It’s the silver cord that connects to heaven.

The silver cord is our souls. The Lumination in the spiritually rich man seems down they are still spiritually rich, and can lift the other up.

Back in 2015, I had this vision of this blog. I could not for the life of me figure out what the triple braided cord was. I master mind with a couple people and all I got from them was wow that’s deep Melissa. I didn’t get the answer.

There is still lots to write about this because it also goes into the thought process of the mind of flesh and the mind of spirit. That too can be the both the silver cord and the triple braided cord.

Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone. Ecclesiastes 4:11

This to is all meaningless it’s like chasing the wind. Because it’s all about faith.

I love you father in Heaven for all you do to me for me and with me. Thank you for everything to everybody that is in my life. As I continue to wait patiently with a smile and gratitude I will continue to have faith. Thank you.

My friends much Love. Have faith

Unequal weights and unequal measures are both alike an abomination to the Lord. Proverbs 20:10

Dang it! I started this blog not really knowing where it was going. The proverb above stuck out like a sore thumb. I didn’t know why.

I’m sitting outside saying GOD why can’t I stop smoking and honestly like I really don’t do this to often because just like with everyone else. It’s like he’s done everything for me to make things better for me and it’s me that’s not doing it. So I feel really bad when I talk to him about stopping certain things because there is no reason for me to do them. It’s strictly free will. I know the benefits and promises that are to come when I make that decision to just stop!

Dang! I know longer beg or pray for things like that. Now, as I’m talking to GOD outside. He says go write about it. I say ok come in and pull up that Proverb! 🤦‍♀️ to write about not smoking.

Here is what it means to me. Smh it’s so stupid! On my part of course. Knowing the GOD that I know and his plan for me.

Unequal weights meaning doing things I’m not suppose to do knowing that I’m not to do them and unequal measures sums up what I do. It’s me. It’s saying I’m going to drop and then not stopping. It does not make GOD happy with me at all. I can’t complain about anything because it’s my decisions that leave me where I’m at.

Dang! 🤦‍♀️ his reality makes me feel really bad. I even try arguing him with him at times. Like why do I have to stop smoking??? And if I’m so holy why don’t I live like the pope! Like protection wise. That sounded really bad. Then he says you are protected what are you talking about?! 🤦‍♀️ OK. Thank you father for all you do to me for me and with me! Please forgive me of all my sins.

Just thought I’d share.

Much love my friends!

What then shall we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet if we had the law, I would not had known sin. For I would not have known what it is to convet if the law had said, “Do not convet.” Romans 7:7

You shall not be jealous of one another. The gift given to someone else is not the gift that was given to you. Does the gift given to the person you are jealous of better than the gift that you were given? By no means! Yours is different not greater or less than not the other way around.

The beauty of the personal relationship that we have with GOD. Yeah fool! With GOD! Yeah wise man! With GOD!

I can’t express the meaning more of a fool or a wise man?!?!? Who is who?

Passion, wealth, strength, in what?

Wealth of houses, vineyards, words, negative power in which is thought of a wise man? What is it to you?

More importantly what is it to GOD? Who or what has the power? You may think you do in reality who is this land of Love? Wait power and love do they mix? Wait go a little bit deeper…..

Does the wise and the fool mix?

Then I said in my heart, “What happens to the fool will happen to me also. Why then have I been so very wise? And I said this on my heart that this to us all vanity. Ecclesiastes 2:15

Truly a hard reality! Vanity! Meaningless?

So I hated life, because what is done under the sun was grievous to me, for all is vanity and striving after the wind. Ecclesiastes 16:15

For “being” a “Wise” man or a “Fool”?

Life is like the wind which way is it truly going to go! Frustrating? All the complications of thought! Geez! What the what. Why? Why me?!?

For of the wise as of the fool there is no remembrance, seeing that in the days to come all will have been long forgotten. How the Wise dies just like the fool. Ecclesiastes 2:16

See the only thing we have in common is we all die! Why not eat and drink and just be happy! Reward each other with laughter and joy, encourage one another to do and be better. To love instead of not love.

Will then, will you be wise or a fool? What would you call it?

All judgement, what would you say to your fellow neighbor? You did wrong, you did this you did that, complaining about everything under the sun except, accepting the love of the wise and the fool. For who can judge to be either? Only the one who sits higher than all of us rather than the wise or the fool!

It’s all GOD. Much love my friends.

What about drinking?

For a prostitute is a deep; an adulteress is a narrow well. Proverbs 23:27

Is a prostitute any worse than an adulteress? Or the difference between the guttonier or the drunkard?

Hmm makes you wonder.

Who has woe? Who as sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaining? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of the eyes? Proverbs 23:29

Is it the wise or the fool? Is it the drunkard or meat eater? Is it the prostitute or the adulteress?

Those who tarry long over wine; those who go to try mixed wine. Do not look at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup and goes down smoothly. Proverbs 23:31

Shall I start drinking wine the drunkard would say to the man drinking wine thing they are wise. Truly both are fools.

In the end it bites like a serpent and stings like an adder. Your eyes will see strange things and your heart utter perverse things. Proverbs 23:32-33

Rather it be in the early day or in the latter days it soon will hit like a rod of lightening in some way shape or form.

I know that wine for me was Vodka. It at times hit me as a prostitute, adulteress a glottoniare a drunkard someone completely in non control of everything around me. It made me see things that were not true. It hit me like that rod of lightening that was so hard hitting I didn’t know what happened the night before. Did it happen suddenly? Absolutely not! It snuck up like a serpent on a rock and not me in the ass many many times. Without seeing or feeling anything.

You will be like one who lies down in the sea, like the one who lies on top of a mast. Proverbs 24:34

A mast of self destruction!

They struck me, “You will say,”but I was not hurt; they beat me, but I did but feel it. When shall I awake? I must have another drink. Proverbs 23:35

That dang wall jumped in front of me causing that black eye, my arm is broke because the sidewalk was uneven. The chair had a broken leg and I did not see it.

That “thing” was there in front of me I did not see it. That person struck me when I was drinking and did not feel it.

I have the shakes I just got get another drink. All in one. Rather it be a thing or person it’s all in one.

SELf DESTRUCTION, of the fool saying they are wise.

Much love my friends.

Do you use your ear to hear?

Apply your heart to instruction and your ear to words of knowledge. Proverbs 23:12

Honestly I think the ear is the problem. However, the knowledge is so awesome, understanding is even better….. it’s the damn ear.

It says in Matthew what good would your ear be if it was attached to your nose or your nose attached to your eye or a leg an arm or an arm a leg. What does each part mean?

Does the deaf actually hear? And if your not truly deaf are you really using the ear to hear?

My inmost being will exult when your lips speak what is right.

This is the talk that we tell ourselves You can’t, you won’t of what you speak. The inmost being that wants craved the innermost of life. Which is you. So what is right…. only the word of GOD when we use the ear to hear.

Hear, my son, and be wise, and direct your heart your heart in the way. Proverbs 23:19

Be not among drunkards or among gluttonous eaters of meat, for the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty, and slumber will clothe them in rags. Proverbs 23:20-21

Drunkard glutton eater! What does that mean? Someone who over indulges in drinking and/or eating. Yup. To most dang it! Is this me could I be both?

What really would be the talk? Addiction?

Should this blog be about eating or drinking or both?

This actually took a little bit more of a turn than I was intended. Key word I, You, who is probably wondering what really is being spoken here.

You shall not make yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is of heaven above or in the earth beneath, or that is in the water below the earth. Exodus 20:2

In which this is the 2nd commandment of the 10 Commandments. How ironic that this is about addiction of every kind. The worst being of food or of drinking or of drinking and of food. Truly which comes first?

The point is that is all based on Faith truly. Everything is based on hearing the words and the commandments of who sits above us in which is Love, The Father In Heaven, his son Jesus Christ.

The ear has a meaning it is to hear the knowledge gain the understanding and use it to apply it to your life.

Much Love My Friends. Feel free to comment below your thoughts questions and concerns. Also use your ear that is attached to you your head for the purpose of the ear.

A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever. Ecclesiastes 1:4

Do you think that this is a choice? No choice. People come and people go right. We are all born and we all die. So then the question above wouldn’t make sense. Right? Right!

There is no remembrance of former thing, not will there be any remembrance of later things yet to be among those who come after. Ecclesiastes 1:11

This is true? No, not really. There are many people who are remembered, and why they are remembered. Right? Yup!

And I applied my heart to seek and to search out by Wisdom all that is done under heaven. It is an unhappy business that GOD has given to the children of man to be busy with. Ecclesiastes 1:13

It is not GOD who leaves us. It is Us that leave him. He did not make this an unhappy place for ya. It is us that choose to be unhappy. The realization of this passage really has set in.

GOD is there for both you and I daily. I feel like it is the teachings of the word is what we do not listen to.

In the circumstance that is here in the presence time is that Faith yes. It is the right time. For there is no other time to wait. If you are unhappy it is a choice to be that way. To be grateful is another. So, again there is no unhappy business in this world unless it’s you.

The only thing new on this planet you. It’s who you are and who you are becoming. It’s what you present yourself to be. It’s what holds in your heart and in your mind.

The only solution to being whole in self is Be in one mind with the father in Heaven. It’s a state of being. It’s a higher frequency of consciousness. It’s amazing when reached.

Faith is the master of life. Everything under the sun is completely meaningless, which is why there is YOU and FAITH.

Much Love

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tee life. Proverbs 13:12

This verse reminds me of my theory that we are all trees. Think about it a heart deferred mean procrastination about something you know needs to be done. But a desire fulfilled means what it’s telling you to do. You have in your heart what need to be done and you not doing it.

The desire is your why! Why are you on this earth. That desire is the purpose and the tree is you.

It takes sometime depending on how hard you work to be built up to find out that purpose. A well rooted tree does not be grow over night it takes time. It takes water, and sunlight. It takes trimming and some trees have to be cut down because it is dead right?

The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, that one may turn away from the snares of death. Proverbs 13:140

I have said it time in time that reading a Chapter of Proverbs a day teaches you to be wise. GOD shows you your Character Defects in a way sometimes you don’t want to know. You are a chosen being.

With that said in order to find Purpose in your life, you have to become wise and turn away from all the behaviors and addictions that you may display. You guys, this is not your fault. You were taught this way. It takes the desire of the heart to learn to become wise in order to find out what that purpose is.

For you are a people holy to the Lord your GOD. The Lord you’d GOD has chosen you to be a woolens for him treasured possession, out of all the peoples on the face of the earth. Deuteronomy 6:6

I remember when this journey first started. He was teaching me a lot of things. When GOD first came in my life I was a very angry person, I was drinking a lot and doing drugs here and there. I was a addicted to sex, food at times, drama, and the need to be loved. I was addicted to self pity, I had extreme low self esteem. In which still struggle with today. However, it’s better than it was before.

In my life I have been through molestation, incest, suicide, my parents divorced when I was about 1 years old. Both my parents were drug addicts. Thank GOD my dad took my brother and I away from that.

All these things happened before I was 8 years old. Dad had my brother and I in counseling for a very long time. I still remember her name. Fran was an awesome lady.

Living with my dad, he had women in his life. He married a lady named Karen who was super loving and took really good care of us. She went through some really rough times with my dad and his kids. She did not have any kids. My dad worked a lot. He was a workaholic. He traveled a lot. Karen was with us.

Not knowing my mom, she came back into our lives when I was 9. Sheen meeting her she had 2 other kids at this time. Dad gave us the option to go and with her to visit. We lived in Englewood, Colorado, she lived in Evergreen, Colorado.

I went Jason did not. She was so mean. She drank, smoked pot, and cussed. She lived in a really dirty cabin. I never went back. It was completely the opposite of what my dad did. He didn’t do any of those things. Nor did I know anything about them. So I didn’t go back in fact didn’t even talk to her for about 3 years later.

As I look back at my relationship with GOD and how he has made me., and has shown me my purpose he was with me the whole time. I did not realize it then, however now I know he was.

Continuing on dad divorced Karen. He met someone knew. That was hard because she was there for us more than he was. She was the second person that was pulled from my life that I truly loved. The first was my grandma to suicide.

He ended up marry this lady Anne. She was good at first then after they got married that was it of mrs nice. She was mean, it only got worse after they had a baby. We now were living in Las Vegas. My mom cane back into our lives. By that time I wanted to leave because of Anne.

So we arranged me to go live with my mom for 1year. I thought that I would be happier with her. Prior to living with her I went to go visit her and it was the best time. She then had 3 kids instead of 2. They were all young compared to me. I would have to say that was the one and only time I really felt my mom loved me.

After going back home things were still really bad, so that’s when I went to go live with her. We were still in Las Vegas and she was living in Crawford Colorado. We lived on the rim of the black canyon. It was a culture shock. Not only that she was pregnant again. Drinking, smoking, had a husband that heat her and yeah I don’t know what I was thinking. I was only 11.

Ended up being the mom to the kids. And experienced a lot there. With in just a couple months I was calling my dad come get me. He would not because of the school year. He said he would come get me when school let out. So I didn’t have the choice but to stay. I promise you my stuff was packed and ready to go a week before my dad got there to come get me.

He brought Jason and we went to the blue Mesa for a little mini vacation and went back to Las Vegas. It was awesome because it was just my dad and my brother. And he drove, more quality time with them. It had been 9 months since I saw them. I left my moms happy to leave to say the least.

During this time Anne also had a baby while I was gone. Me being a mom at my moms house by the time I got to my dads house it was a walk in the park with their baby. I think Anne was jealous of that. She was a new mom. Anyways she always had a problem. Maybe it was because o was back and Jason and I were just my dads kids.

To make a long story short. I thought that I turned out pretty good. Leaving home which ultimately turned out to be my moms at 16. I knew I had a choice on which way to go. By now I’d seen good way of living and a bad way. I chose the good way for a long time.

Worked at Wendy’s for 4 years. Self supporting for a long time. The one thing I lacked was Love. My thought was every time I really loved someone I lost them. My grandma to suicide Karen who dad divorced, my dad and my brother in the end because they were not around. So I seeked it in men. Married at 18, took care of this guy for a long time. I was working in the convenient store industry was an assistant manager by 19. Divorced this guy went right into another relationship. By 18 I was smoking pot. I drank a little bit however when I felt like I was going into the alcoholic mode I stopped.

By 21 I was using meth. Was very insecure was in a bad destructive relationship in which I stayed in for 10 years. We had one child. Divorced him left my child. Started dealing meth, and doing the worst with it. Got in trouble. Yeah.

Always had a thought that I would someday be a teacher lawyer or accountant.

Then the loss of my daughter. That was a rap I gave up I didn’t know why that happened. I was pissed to say the least. I would say to GOD I turned out pretty good for all the things I’ve been through. Why now this. I was truly broken.

I knew that if I didn’t go to the Bible I would have some serious problems. I read everyday however was still pissed and hurt.

He started showing my gifts that I didn’t know I had. I feel like when Jesus was in my room with my little girl he touched me or something. It calmed me down to know that Jesus was there. It took about 2 years to realize that. However when I did I can’t tell you how I felt. Then things started happening like I would be thinking about something or have a dream about something and it would happen. The first thing I remember was these animals I was thinking or dreamt about them I don’t know one of the 2 and I looked up in the sky and all the clouds were animals. I was like what is going on.

Of course made me smile however I didn’t understand. Moving forward to that journey I just know that GOD was there however I wasn’t listening. Bad things starting happening. Like breaking the smallest bone in my body. Cutting my hand twice stitches and still numb-in both places.

Still not listening homelessness. Which taught me a lot. Losing my daughter to my dad who still has her. I will have her back.

The point is that I knew that we are all made to help each other. That’s why we are made and that’s why things happen to us. Especially if we don’t listen. During this time GOD was teaching he character defects that I had. Like how I was treating people. It was not good. I shut everyone out. And honestly 8 years later after my daughter grew angel wings I’m just learning how to let people back in my life. It’s a challenge for me.

Now that I am willing and all of these things that happened are for a purpose. It’s the purpose that GOD had in my life. He chose me and he chose you. The difference between knowing your chosen and doubting or blaming GOD is how you think.

Through the years and during being homeless is that I didn’t have a choice but to surrender to him and what he was doing to change my thinking. It is our troubles in our life that makes you who you are. GOD loves you and wants you to find your purpose through what you’ve been through.

For those of us that go through the most. Like most adults don’t go through the things that I have gone through. Most people don’t experience the things that I did in the first 12 years of my life.

I am sure that some of you can relate. Which brings me to why it is important to know that’s why your called.

I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. John 17:23

Father, I desire that they also whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the earth. John 17:24.

He knew you and I before we were born. It is up to us to go to Jesus to be reborn. In order to completely as one you have to surrender to him.

If you feel through out your day things are happening like Deja vu thinking you have met some body or bad things happen. It’s GOD trying to get your attention. Start recognizing it. Even the simplest things. He will make you humble. He will get your attention I promise you that.

If you have a desire in your heart to do something go for it. If your called to take a leap of faith to do something different that’s GOD. If you’ve been through something that you know can help someone else go for it. If you feel sick and tired of the way your living change it to be a better person. Listen to what GIFs telling you to do. At worst he will help you change your thinking to be of him. What’s wrong with that?

I say at worst because that’s how people think. It is Jesus that came to save us. He is the potter and you are the clay. You are the tree that he is tearing down and building back up so that you may ge the tree of life. His tree of life and that’s through understanding gaining knowledge of wisdom so he may tell you why you are here.

You guys I am a serious testimony of how to find your purpose in life if you let him show you. How to walk into your destiny if you just listen.

I love you all
