Entering That Rest (Sunday Inspiration-10-7-2018)

Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” Hebrews 4:11

As most people know, God created our bodies to get tired; we have a need to rest. It feels great to get a good night’s rest, then to wake up feeling refreshed after a hard day’s work the day before. If we were to work for days without stopping to sleep, eventually we would not be able to function properly. God has also placed in every person a longing for a “rest” in his or her heart. The world today is filled with people endeavoring to satisfy that desire, that rest but most, are going to the wrong source.

Some, try drugs alcohol or immorality; others go to seeking wealth (money, bling,etc), still others can’t leave fashion, electronics, pleasures, even sports alone….. and many, wrap their lives around politics. But a person who gives to these pursuits will only compound their problems. These cannot ever satisfy; we would only come up needing more and what we perceive to be something different from these and other desires. The unsatisfied quest sought for daily!

They, are left with the same hollow feeling as before, because the inner desire of one’s heart will NEVER be truly satisfied with anything this world offers.

Today’s key verse (see above) admonishes us to “…labour therefore to enter into that rest…” Normally it takes little effort to engage in physical rest, but here we have a “rest” that requires much effort to gain and diligence to maintain.

This “rest” is for the soul and it comes at a price. You must “want” this rest more than anything you own or ever hope to possess. It demands our all! In natural life, we rest by sleeping and taking breaks. But in true Christianity, the true seeking and finding of the One and ONLY true God, we dare not take breaks, lest we fall by the wayside chasing some other worldly path.

So how do we find this “rest?” In Matthew 11:28 (KJV) Jesus (the Son of God) gave this beautiful invitation: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” The ONLY way for your inner longing to be perfectly satisfied is by coming to Jesus and surrendering your life to Him; stop seeking your own way. Only then will you find that “rest” that our souls desperately need. May we do this today and continue through this new week coming, to enter into this rest and maybe bring someone with us. Others around us need a good rest as well. 🙂

James 1:2 “Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.”

Hebrews 4:8 “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.”

10 Science-Backed Benefits of Cannabis (LINK)

“Cannabis may still be prohibited by the U.S. federal government, but that doesn’t mean the prized plant isn’t a medicine. While federal prohibition may make scientific research on cannabis harder to complete, many studies have shown that the plant has wide-reaching medicinal benefits. Research continues to show that for dozens of conditions, cannabis could be a natural solution.

As of 2018, 29 U.S. states have legalized cannabis for medical use. In the U.S., legalized medical cannabis is gaining more support than ever, with an 84-percent approval rating according to recent survey data…..”

Cannabis can relieve many types of pain

For chronic pain sufferers of any kind, cannabis can bring relief with fewer side effects and less risk than many mainstream treatments. Studies of patients with peripheral neuropathy have shown that pain reduction can be observed within a week of regular use. CBD, or cannabidiol, is thought to be the key pain alleviator here; reports say that it “reduces the inflammatory response and binds to TRPV1 receptors, which are capable of mediating antihyperalgesic effects.”

Cannabis protects brain cells

Despite popular belief, cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant can actually help protect your brain – especially CBD. Sources say that CBD is “proven to reduce short-term brain damage and was associated with extracerebral benefits.”

Relieves the symptoms of MS

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a serious disease with no currently known cure. But studies have shown that cannabis can provide much needed relief to people who have MS – especially those struggling with painful muscle spasms. Muscle spasticity effects an estimated 90 percent of MS patients. Studies show that cannabis can help relieve this symptom; survey data indicates that as many as 97 percent of MS patients could benefit from it.

Will Our Lack of Humanity Be the END of Humanity? (LINK)

“………It seems that I can publish the most heart-wrenching thing and if it doesn’t fall in line with somebody’s political opinion, they can turn it around and say something that makes me doubt they even have a soul……..” -Daisy Luther [Read more from Daisy at link below]

Thanks Daisy!! 🙂

Will Our Lack of Humanity Be the END of Humanity?

https://www.theorganicprepper.com/end-humanity/

I’ve seen the same thing. Thanks Daisy for expressing your feelings in this awesome tell-tale article. I believe (albeit very few) that there are still a few people that have souls left; that somehow they still have a natural compassion for the weaker more needy person. I hope that we have not dissed humans in favor of say, “trees, plants and animals;” while these are blessed in their own created right, they are not made in the image of God such as we are and we have hearts and emotions that can be expressed and even understood. No plant, vegetable or mineral can do that. As for animals, yes, they have souls I believe, but for the greater of humanity, I recommend we put people over animals always! Without us, they’rd be no them…at least happy ones. If there were no humans to be guardians, they’d be awful lonely“. -Moraldiplomat

About Daisy:

Serenity of Faith

Calmness of mind, body and soul is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of placing faith, trust and your entire being in the hands of a loving and all powerful Creator. Peace in the being of a believer is an indication of ripened experience, coupled with faith in Someone bigger than that of self and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of faith.

A person becomes calm in the measure that one understands themselves as a God-created being, for such knowledge necessitates the understanding of others as the result of all things were created, and as one seeks wisdom from a loving Creator and a right understanding of morals and values seeing more and more clearly the internal relations of things by the action of cause and effect, one ceases to fuss and fume and worry and grieve, and remains poised, steadfast, serene in God’s love and inner peace.

The calm person, having learned how to let God direct his or her paths, knows how to encourage others; and they, in turn, reverence their spiritual strength in a once and forgotten faith, and feel that they can learn of them and rely upon them. The more tranquil and God-dependent a person becomes, the greater is their success, their influence, their power for good. Even the ordinary trader will find their business prosperity increase as one develops a greater knowledge in God’s will and accepting His peace in their souls, for people will always prefer to deal with a person whose demeanor is strongly stable and at peace about matters.

The strong, calm person is always loved and revered. They are like a shade-giving tree in a thirsty land, or a sheltering rock in a storm. Who does not love a tranquil heart, a sweet-tempered, balanced life? It does not matter whether it rains or shines, or what changes come to those possessing these blessings, for they are always sweet, serene, and calm. That exquisite poise of character which we call serenity is the last lesson of culture; it is the flowering of life, the fruitage of the soul. It is precious as wisdom, more to be desired than gold, than even fine gold. How insignificant mere money seeking looks in comparison with a serene life – a life that dwells in the ocean of God’s truth, beneath the waves, beyond the reach of tempests, in the eternal calm!

How many people we know who sour their lives, who ruin all that is sweet and beautiful by explosive tempers, who destroy their poise of character, and make bad blood! It is a question whether the great majority of people do not ruin their lives and mar their happiness by a lack of a God-control flow few people we meet in life who are well-balanced, who have that exquisite poise which is characteristic of the finished character!

Phil 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: …” (KJV)

Jn 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, my Peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (KJV)

A Recipe for the Soul

Fold two hands together,
And express a dash of sorrow;
Marinate it overnight,
And work on it tomorrow.

Chop one grudge in tiny pieces
Add several cups of love,
Dredge with a large-sized smile,
Mix in ingredients from above.

Dissolve the hate of good within you,
By crying out to God for help;
Cut in and help those around you,
If he or she should be in need.

Stir in laughter, love and thankfulness,
From the heart it has to come;
Toss with genuine kindness, then
share with people who may need some.

The amount of people served,
Will all depend on you …
This recipe can feed an entire world,
If you really want it to!
