New Blog!

  Hi guys,  I know I haven’t been very active here, but there’s a good reason. I’m in transition to a new to me logging site. Sense the domain hooked to this site does not run out for some months you will on occasion see a post here. To check out my new blog go to my author’s site link below.

A Wonderful Journey


It is a wonderful journey here with the Lord by my side!

Living here on earth is a journey towards our final destination. As harsh as this may sound, our destination is one of two places, either heaven or hell. For the believer, it's heaven! For a non-believer, it's hell; bottom line. One can make one's time here a goal in earthly pleasures and enjoy it the short time one is here or one can enjoy one's life in the presence of God and enjoy life eternally. It's that simple!

However, for some, the simple life doesn't seem obtainable as some seek having the simplicity of comfort in what one can obtain or experience of this world only. When the simplicity of comfort goes way beyond what one can obtain in earthly comfort and experiences. As I have mentioned before, I am not a studied theologian (although I do read and study God's word), but God has blessed me with the knowledge, and I've had experiences in knowing the Lord our God, Jesus, and heaven does exist. I thank Him everyday for the understanding and the experiences He's given me to know without a doubt in my belief that the spirit realm is real. I used to think I was cursed with the visions and dreams I've had during my existence here, but now I have an understanding that was, and still remains, to have been and are God's way of holding on to me. I now see them as a favored blessing. I'm not trying to boast here, for I have seen. Although I feel blessed in the knowing, in a sense, I think more blessed are those who haven't seen and still believe. Jesus said this to Thomas, one of the disciples, when he would not believe Jesus was raised from death when He appeared to the disciples: "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." (John 20:29). 

It is hard for one to see beyond this world when they haven't had God given spiritual experiences to back up one's belief. Having spiritual experiences and knowing they come from God is just one of the many blessings some experience as a Christian. And everyone's spiritual experiences are not the same as another. They can come in many different ways and forms. God gives to each what He wills and what He deems necessary in one's walk with Him. He gives it to one's purpose in fulfilling one's reason or mission for his or her existence in this world. 

I'm a very stubborn person. Without those visions and dreams, I think it would have been very hard to convince me of the existence of God, heaven, and a spirit realm. It still amazes me, thou, how long-my entire life-it took for me to come to the realization that God gave me those visions and dreams throughout my life and at different times in my life, to just now knowing that He did it like that for this time in my life. Although, I don't fully get the gist of some of them, nor the why, I do know they came from Him. That He never took His hands off me in my journey here in this world. My life's journey, to this point, has not been easy. It's been a roller coaster of a ride with many ups and downs, throughout my life. But, God has made His presence known around every corner of my life. And now my life's journey with Him is even more amazing and wonderful. 

There are so many blessings one can and does receive from our Lord in just believing on Him. It's a wonderful life that one must experience to behold. But, the first step towards this wonderful journey with our Lord, is to believe in Him. It's sad that so many people have the thought there's nothing beyond this world, this life. That one has to live-it-up, so to say, because they believe nothing exist beyond one's life here. That one is gone after life here; so sad!

Don't take me wrong, in the atmosphere of spiritual maturity, life as a Christian does go through pain filled moments as one spiritually matures. It's not always easy, as well. However, it has its rewards and that is also what makes the journey wonderful; and, for you believing Christians, you know what I am saying here. The journey here gets more wonderful the closer you become to our Lord. I can only imagine how wonderful heaven's going to be when we go to live with our Lord. Meanwhile, enjoy your wonderful journey here in the hope He's gives us of being there with Him when our journey ends here!

"Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight in glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal." (2 Corinthians 4; 16-19). 

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time." (1 Peter 1:3-5). 

"Most surdly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. Most assuredly. I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the son of God; and those who hear will live." (John 5: 24-25).

A Poem - "Understanding of You"

  Understanding  of You Because my affections are of few  I entrust my heart Yours to guide Lord, I need understanding like You Hope in reciprocating that a new  I keep You close to where care does reside Because my affections are of few Advise me in receiving a breakthrough In knowing to how Your love does provide Lord, I need understanding like You For to few the understanding of me And the acceptance even smaller still As I draw ever closer to Thee Thou my battle of knowledge is uphill In seeking discernment in my life I know in knowing You this fulfill To this understanding I come to life Because my affections are of few I cling to the hope of the afterlife Lord, thanks for understanding of You                       ©Doris Elaine

"Thank You Lord for my Temperamental Energy"

  Repost: Originally Posted, January 11, 2023  In the past I used to wonder why I reacted to certain things the way I did and why I act the way I do now. I knew people have personalities of different temperaments, but, I never really payed it much attention within my own self; until, recently. After reading a few web articles, I did learned I have a more  Melancholic Temperament  to my personality than any other temperament. I did read many articles to understand my temperament, but I referenced  Donald W. Ekstrand   as to me, he gives a clear understanding of personality temperaments; in addition, has a long standing in the Christianity arena.   Learning more about myself and understanding myself better has helped me break through some moments in my life, I thought I would never get through. To me, knowing myself better has also enhanced knowing the world around me, to a certain degree, in being able to function better in my world. For instance, Melancholic temperaments are introverts
