truthful perceptions: daggers…

img_0011-copy3

Words can cut like a knife. My Dad always told me that a woman knows she’s not as physically strong as a man, so she uses her words to make all things equal. Interesting theory but when it comes to domestic violence both men and women equally use the tongue like a steel furnished machete. 

When wielded with anger and physical intimidation words have the power to cause emotional internal bleeding and severe psychological damage. No man worth his salt as a man of integrity does this. Only woman beaters do this when he’s yelling or using hate-filled whispers to threaten and terrify his wife/intimate partner.

Possibly the worst form of verbal abuse is the silent one. The use of the silent stare which is a code that his victim interprets with a knowing fear of what is to come.

Real men use words to build up and not tear down a woman’s self-esteem. Being accountable for your words is a measure of true integrity and a yardstick of good communication skills.  As the good book say’s, “sweet water and bitter water cannot come from the same fountain…” So choose your words wisely and season them with decency. 

No matter the time or the circumstances, when you use your words towards your wife/intimate partner for positive direction, devoted encouragement and heart-opening dedication, you’re empowering a woman who will now love you to the ends of the earth. 

I believe words were created to be used wisely to build up a person’s life with both healing and dignity; not as daggers to stab and destroy their spirit.

truthful perceptions: mind…

Russel-147

Christ came into the world to teach us how to think constructively. What is it that makes you strong? What pushes you to push on in spite of setback, disappointments and failures?

The mind can either be a place where you’re stressed-out, burned-out, flipped-out or turned-out. GOD gave us a precious mind to be in-service, not insane. To be of servitude to Him and not insanity through the world.

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ JESUS. That we all speak the same thing with no divisions between us and that we are perfectly joined together in the same mind. For the Prince of Peace is our pattern of perfection, patience, power and persistence to succeed.

What makes you strong, blessed, wise, creative, resilient, loving and faithful? The answer is your beautiful mind.

GOD Bless You. Stay Encouraged. Love All-Ways & Keep Looking Up. IJPN.

truthful perceptions: nature

For some unmitigated reason, I’ve had to contend with the most overwhelming brilliance.  A mystical find of greatest importance, and yet treated daily with underwhelming significance to a majority of humanity, simply by virtue of our content with its existence.  

Well I for one refuse to be so disingenuously idle about this event, and I will not just sit back and take the magnitude of this blessing for granted.  Isn’t it just like human nature to subsequently throw under the bus those things of the most significance to our lives,. and yet bally-hoo about the most unimportant things and blow them up to huge proportions of worship.

For example, professional Sports. The manner in which we as humans, or at least a large portion of us deem the existence of sports as religious events rather than mere entertainment is mind boggling. Professional athletes are treated as gods to be worshipped while humans vulnerable to the addiction of gambling will go as far as losing their homes on gambling debts to bookies, or through foreclosure for using mortgage money for betting.  I’ll pass.

I played sports and love to watch the action just as much as the next guy, but all within reason and proportion. I’m also greatly partial to the beauty of the Sun, the Forests, Mountains, Oceans, and the Rivers that parlay themselves around this globe with a resplendent grandeur unequal to anything Man could possibly dream up.  That’s the overwhelming brilliance I speak of.

Why?  Because it lays upon mine heart the equivalent gift and blessing of Virtuous Women given unto Men through GOD. I call attention to this equivalent phenomena not to be disrespectful or facetious, nor to accommodate my conscience for some undue act of immorality.

I raise this empirical point for it is the Virtuous Woman that enhances a Man to be the best he may gainfully strive for himself to be.  It is the Virtuous Woman of whom inspires a Man to first marry himself to the acts of courage in his life, were he to then secondly become impressive enough for a Woman’s attention, admiration and attraction to a confident Man. 

The brevity of life hones our necessity to sharpen the arrows of wisdom to the people, places and things, most meaningful to our lives. I would pray that Men of all walks of life would lessen themselves to those things immaterial and vain, and hasten respectfully in contemplation to the inner beauty of Virtuous Women that surrounds us each and everyday.  Through supporting the efforts of a Virtuous Woman, we morally ground ourselves. When making exceptions of time within our busy schedules on behalf of a Virtuous Woman, we gainfully strengthen the spiritual cords that bind us all.  

We then learn the true meaning of faithful interdependence with each other, while lifting  the currency  of love through mutual respect as the greatest of all abilities accorded to our spiritual human nature.

truthful perceptions: children

Children Walk In Truth…

They have the uncanny ability to keep it real at all times. Neither pretentious nor seeking vainglory. They cannot help but be who and what we see them to be. Always joyful, always innocent..

Newly arrived from heaven and forever reminding us of how we used to be..And then here comes the world in all of its wickedness…The toxicity of it all ready to infect the innocence of another generation. A day and age where the existence of parental controls for television are more acceptable, than questioning the necessary invention for them in the first place. Our children become what they consume. They evolve more from what enters the eyes and the ears than the mouth..

A violent home most often produces a future batterer of a boy, and a glimpse of what may lie ahead for a girl. Let us allow love to reign in a mighty way. No parent can better achieve long-term peace of mind, than through the diligence of structured quality time invested in there precious children’s lives today.

Praying with them builds their muscles of self-esteem. Studying with them inoculates them with self-confidence. Endowing them with courses in History, Music, Culture and Mathematics teaches them the value of possessing an analytical mind to learn their place in the scheme of things, so that they critical think the necessity of a higher education and it’s vital importance to their success in there future…

Most importantly, feed them the Word of GOD and teach them to reverence the Spiritual & Moral necessities of Practicing Faith, Active Worship, Employing Wisdom & Biblical Tithing. For this will do more for the marrow of their bones than milk; and when they are old, they will not depart from it. From this endless River of Parental compassion, will they forever drink from the Seas of Love a legacy of integrity, to keep them determined and forever walking in truth. IJPN – In JESUS Precious Name.
