Q u e s t i o n s  W e  M a y  H a v e

-Life is so hard at times. How can I stop from 'going crazy'?

Philippians 4:7. And how to get it? Others will pray for you.(Philippians 1:2,8,9), and you have a part too.(Philippians 4:8,9; Colossians 3:15).in keeping Christ's nature of concern and love for others in your heart.

But for those far away from sanity.

Christ guides us into His peace:.Luke 1:79. Ask Him to do so for you. 

He can provide the guidance to sound mindedness and emotional stability:.2Timothy 1:7;.Romans 16:25,26 "Now to him that is of power to stablish.(make you stable).you according to my gospel and the preaching.(original is 'preach', 'publish', 'proclaim openly').of Emmanuel the Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, but now is made manifest and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith.".Without that, it is another story:.Romans 8:22

Pets help one be less absorbed in their own lack. Get a pet! But not a bird if you or anyone in the family has a weakened immune system. A pet is something you can express affection toward and something that will love you unconditionally. Keeping it well

Doctors at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York found that even healthy birds can carry cryptoccal meningitis.(CM), a potentially deadly fungus that is carried in their claws, beaks and intestines and is transmitted through the air. One way to protect yourself.

Things you can do in keeping your pet healthy.

What has been accepted into one's heart from life is our 'programming':.Numbers 16:30. Really what else did most of us have to go by until we found about higher consciousness? A few are in an attitude of self sabotage. If one is sabotaging himself or herself, they do it to others.as well.

Then one is unbalanced and in a state of opposing himself of herself?.2Timothy 2:25.(the word 'acknowledging' in this verse, in the original Greek means, 'to have precise knowledge of', that's why 'Study' is important. The word 'repentance' means an attitude for 'change' or a changed attitude. Note also the other implication this verse offers, that of, if you are in precise knowledge of the truth, you will not be opposing yourself)

A true story, condensed:."On our way back, the sole of one of my hiking boots came loose. The thoughts came that it would be ok to go on and that I needn't say anything to the group I was with, as it would be a pity to disturb the whole group and hinder them because of a broken boot. When I had these thoughts a friend behind me said that I should inform the leader and he would stop the group and I would avoid the risk of getting injured. At that moment I felt a resistance within myself. I did not want to be the reason for causing difficulties for the group. Finally we stopped for a break. The friend behind me urged me again to say something, so I finally did. The whole group looked at me and the boot. I felt very guilty and ashamed for being the cause of holding up the whole group. I felt panic rising within me. While experiencing these feelings, I suddenly had a surprise. Quite unexpectedly, a friend from the midst of our group came towards me, took a plastic strap out of his backpack, stood in front of me, went down on one knee and tied the strap around the boot. He didn't just hand it to me expecting me to do it. He smiled and was happy to be of service. As we left to go back, I had thoughts. I felt warm and cared for. It was as if a sunbeam had pierced a dark cold place in me. And as we walked on I had the thought that I was ready to sabotage my own safety and well-being for the sake of others. Why didn't I finally love myself? This brought pain to my heart. I felt I was incapable of giving and receiving love and that I could not love myself. I cried. This lifted the burden off me. I could now see the difference between true unattached love and the dependent kind I had been used to. The kindness of the gentleman with the plastic strap was so sincere. He only wanted to help me. I'll always be grateful for this experience. I am becoming more self-assured and confident and I can say No when I am asked to do something for others that does not make me feel comfortable. I am not afraid to take a break for rest when my body seems to need it. Most of all, I can now understand, in a loving way, when I cannot respond to a 'love' extended to me, because I recognize that it possibly does not come from the right source. The source from which love springs is all important."....L.Y. Chicago, USA

Life can be a pall of doom at times if we are not being diligent in keeping focused.(Romans 9:27).on what Christ in us actually means:.Matthew 11:28-30 "Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart and you shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.".It is not what you go through while desiring good things, but how you allow it to affect you, that is important for your spiritual growth. All tests and trials of life are to drive a person to the spirit part of him, the soul and the Soul connected with it, which is God, for God can instantly stop any and all negatives affecting a person, turning dark days into days of light.

There is a rest for spiritual persons of loving heart.(Hebrews 4:9).and when you get out of mind of this, life becomes harsher.

This rest of the soul, comes by belief:.Hebrews 3:18; 4:3,5,6,11.

There is no rest in unbelief. But many sincere believers in Emmanuel lack in the belief that would prevent them from ever falling into alternate potentially hurtful philosophies. Believing in His person is one thing.(even the dark side believes in His existence:.James 2:19), but believing in what He is.and what He gave you.(Romans 5:17).is another.


-Since we are basically individual spirits each in our own body, shouldn't we be concentrating more on the spiritual than the physical?
We should be good examples in all ways to others and realize that even physical exercise has profit for us now:.1Timothy 4:8.

Ancient warriors didn't use expensive gyms. They got themselves into fighting shape by doing pushups, carrying water in clay jars, running with a log, etc., they didn't need dumbbells and barbells. 

But the theory of, 'exercise is good for the heart' because it helps one lose fat by 'really going at it', has been killed
 


-What about giving to bums who accost you on the street?
Matthew 5:42 "Give to him that asks you and from him that would borrow of you turn not thou away.".So it costs you a hundred or so a year! Perhaps set a percentage of your worth for this as part of your budget for living. See 'Compassion' when you have an evening to spare. 

It is not up to us to judge what a bum might do with it:.Hebrews 13:2 "Be not forgetful to entertain.(original Greek is 'be hospitable') strangers. For thereby some have entertained angels unawares.".Probably angels would not appear as a bum, but regardless of how they may appear, they would always have a respectful, yet not obsequious presence.

However if one is a legalistic type of spiritual person.(see Mosaic Law), he or she probably would not do that, as it might hinder his 'giving to God' and a few of those who like the name spiritual, hide behind a misinterpretation of:.2Thessalonians 3:10.
