Time Will Reveal…

Its Amazing to Me how people can come up with ALL types of excuses or reasons to justify their Sinning or Wrong Doing. For some reason many of Us seem to think that Jesus’ dying on the Cross gave Us FREE-REIGN to Sin as much as We like and then simply ask for Forgiveness and ALL will be ok and BEAUTIFUL with the World. This is So far from the TRUTH! Yes, its TRUE that GOD Forgives Us Our Sins but HE also tells Us in HIS Word, ‘Flee from Sin…Run from it…Keep as far away from Sin as You can…The wages of Sin is Death…,’ this to Me means that We should not Sin. And, Yes, We are ALL Sinners…Born into Sin…We have ALL Sinned and Fallen short but after We ask for Forgiveness of those Sins We are to keep away from those Sins that We have asked Frogiveness for. GOD LOVES Us and wants the best for US, HIS Children, but if We continue to choose Sin HE will have no choice but to discipline Us through HIS LOVE for Us. When We Sin or continue to choose Sin GOD never leaves Us, HE allows Us to have to deal with the consequences of Our Sins so that We will learn from them and hopefully, through Our ‘Consequence Learning’ We will choose to stay away from Sin. It is never GOD that leaves Us, it is Us that steps away from HIM to do as We please, by choosing Sin over Fleeing from Sin.

There are many that choose Sin and actually ask for Forgiveness during the actual committing of the Sin. Talk about CONTRADICTION! Thats Man for you, right?! How can One know that an act is Wrong in GOD’s Eyes, continue to take part in the act and ask Forgiveness ALL at the same time? I guess that individual feels that Sinning in this way makes the Sin a ‘Little White Sin.’ (What the Hell…)

My writing this post comes from reading more on the Bishop Eddie Long case and thinking of ALL of the individuals out there that have Sinned and are Sinning and might feel that their DARKNESS won’t have LIGHT Shined upon IT…Oh, My Friend, the time for Your Sin to be revealed is coming, just as everyone’s Sin in days past have been revealed. Be assured that if You have Sinned or are Sinning GOD will not and does not allow Sins to go unpunished. Whether We have a feeling that Our Sin is justified because it ‘Feels Good to Us’ or ‘Our Sin is out of Revenge or Anger’ or ‘We have asked Forgiveness during Our Sinning thinking that makes it Ok’ or ‘We have a LOFTY idea of who We are because of Our title or status’ or ‘We feel that the World owes Us something,’ the Sin that We commit will be Revealed and GOD will allow Us to deal with the consequences until We learn from those Sins, no matter how long Our learning or disciplining takes. 

My Friend, We have ALL Sinned and most of Us will continue to Sin, for One reason or another but GOD is continually calling to Us to choose to ‘Flee from Sin…’ so that HE won’t have to discipline Us and so that We won’t have to deal with those consequences that We Truly don’t want to have to deal with from the start.

I’m continually checking Myself …What are You doing to Flee from Sin? Or are You choosing to Sin because You feel You have Free Reign to do it?

What They Don’t Know Won’t Hurt Them…

What They Don’t Know Won’t Hurt Them…

-‘Nothing weighs on us so heavily as a secret.’

                                                                    Jean de La Fontaine

 

As I ran this Morning, watching the Sun take its position in the Sky, transforming Morning into Afternoon, I
pondered what I would write about today. Idea after idea running through My Mind, mocking Me as I ran around the oval pathway… I thought of topics that I’d written about before, whether I should revisit them and I thought of a multitude of others that have yet to make it to My blog, to be read and contemplated by its readers.

As I came to the finale of My Morning run, thinking back on the past, while at the same time focusing on the Moment I was experiencing, INSPIRATION walked up to Me, tapped Me on the shoulder and whispered in My ear, ‘Why is it that People say, ‘What they don’t know won’t Hurt them…’ when the TRUTH is, it will do Nothing but Hurt them and that is why the One that doesn’t want them to know is trying to keep the Secret from them.’

‘Hmmm…? What they don’t know won’t Hurt them…’

As I thought more about that statement it came to Me that, just like a Secret, most of the time, along with that
statement comes an Action or something that We do that we are Ashamed of, and don’t want anyone else to know about. Like
Infidelity, Cheating, Stealing, a Fabrication, Information, anything that can cause Hurt or Pain to another and We are so Selfish and Hell-Bent on ‘instant-gratification’ and what it is we WANT that We continue on with the Action that We know will cause another consternation and We tell Ourselves…’Well, they won’t know what I did or am doing…So, what they don’t know won’t Hurt them…,’ but ALL the while it’s not only Hurting them, it’s also Hurting the individual doing the Wrong…

‘What they don’t know won’t Hurt them,’ leads to One having to Watch every little thing that they say so as not to ‘slip up,’ Lie about their activities, Hide behind those Lies, Remember the Lies so as to be able to Build upon them, Be Watchful of themselves and make sure they aren’t being ‘found out,’ Be Sly about things that they do and a plethora of other things so as to keep that Secret a Secret, whether it is to be kept from another individual or a group.

This alone, is a Heavy Weight for One to have to carry, doing ALL of these things so as not to be found out, in
addition to ALL of the other things One has to do from Day to Day but Selfishness doesn’t seem to care of those things, that is until the weight becomes too much or One’s ‘Dark Deeds are brought into the Light.’

Secrets that We hold that We don’t want another to know about, which We are actually ashamed of, are truly Heavy Weights to carry because We are Hurting Ourselves, first of ALL by having taken part in the Behavior that caused it to have to become a Secret and having to have to carry it around with Us ALL of the time. Then add to that the fact that We have to keep it from another so that they won’t be Hurt by Our actions, is akin to Atlas Holding the Earth upon His Shoulders…

My Friend…My Reader, if the Action You take or are about to take is Questionable, Wrong, Gut-Wrenching, One that will Hurt another or One that You are or will be ASHAMED of, don’t take part in it because…
