We can be in despair, believing that no one cares. Misery can seem to overwhelm and our life is without a helm. So we lift our arms in disgust, when hopelessness and anguish seem to be a must. Is life really worth living, when most people aren’t forgiving? Despair is what we feel, when life becomes so surreal. We work so hard to fit in; that we believe that putting our trust in what we think can make us win. Real despair without care will have desolation and dejection there. Life seems to be so unfair, because we believe that for us that no one or even God is not there. If loneliness and isolation is what we do, then we will find despair always is in our view. What do we want or what we will be, if we fail to believe that we can’t be free? We don’t have to be in despair because God cares just look up and see He will answer our prayer. Let us please open our eyes and realize the reason why, that hope for the hopeless is given by the one who has shed His blood for us and died. Despair doesn’t have to exist as long as God is there and to know that He shelters us with His loving mercies and tender care. Please let us walk with Him, knowing that Jesus will always be our friend. There is no reason to be in despair, misery, anguish, or dejection, because Jesus Christ is our refuge and protection. OUR HOPE SHOULD BE IN NOTHING LESS THEN JESUS CHRIST AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. By Bruce Bynum ©

Change Through pain

Change through pain

The family is the most important unit in our society in the past and still today. When we look at any systems, especially those that help family through protection of children, such as SRS and other private and state agencies. There has to be true check and balance, meaning we must have a way of assuring that it purpose (safety of Children) is being done with out bias, prejudice, and malice in the system. In all systems there is corruption of that system, although it may be the few that corrupt it, this do have effect and affect on many life’s. The fact that in family unit our lives are connective to each other, not only in our mediate family but our extend family, i.e. Cousin, Aunt & Uncle, Grandparents, Community, Church, and other social activities we are in involve with. There are times we will hear about family that go through these pain of changes that tear the family unit apart, and we believe that these are isolated indent and no real connection of what we hear, see, even read about from time to time. I believe that the real problems are we are not connective, or we don’t communicate/view these issues as interconnect, so situation seam to be far and few in between each indent. In Wichita KS, as in other cities and states there are groups trying to connect these major issues, but I believe that we have a few groups representative of the few, and some of these are radical groups. We don’t know or understand how many relatives are affected by lack of support. If we don’t have a voice we can’t be hear. How do we effectively change the cost of the life’s so disrupted? It is stated, “when the pain of not changing become greater then the pain of change, then people will change”. When we look at Kinship/ relatives rising family member, where there is no voice for what they are going to be facing. Families are dealing with just how to manage their new lives, and some are going through the court systems, then you add on the finances that soon follow. We have put stress on the family unit and to point of failure, and the pain that become almost unbearable. To many families have given up and believe that it is hopeless, that we must take it no matter what. Question: Has that pain become some much that we are will to make change, or do we need to still suffer?

I pray to God today in such an intellectual way.
I got so much intoxicated about all I had to say.
Then in a moment I heard from God,
about why I’m making such a long blog.
God stated that my words are not impressive to him.
It is more of my heart he wanted to have, and
if I give him all of my heart
then that would be a very good start.

Principles, standards, morals, ethics, ideals, Worth, Cost, Charge, Importance, Assessment, Appreciate.
What are we thinking about? What are we looking at? What are we doing? What going on in this world? What is important to us? These things are the values of who we are and what we do. Is caring really part of our living, or is it just going through life without purpose? What really concerns us? We go through life sometime without looking, or thinking of what the future may hold for us, and those around us. We may believe that there are no choices in what we do. We may believe that if we have choices they are very limited, and really our choices become no choices for us at all. What we hold to, what we believed and why we believe, this has become the viewpoint of how we see the world, or our world in which we live. What is the hope of what we see and feel? What is it we can or can’t do to change or make a change? Do we just go along with what going on? Is everything we do for a reason and a purpose? Are the values we have for ourselves, which affects all of those around us healthy? Do we care? Should we care? As we can see, there are many things to for us to think about although we know that some of us won’t. This should concern us, because of what going on in our life’s, but we shouldn’t force someone to believe in things we value or what important to us. We should live our life’s as to show others that we care, but this is my value my concerns, and sometime my pain. Look, work, and act on what important to us, yes let have the values that reflect a caring and loving way of life. Accountability should bring on responsibility.

If only

If only, i.e. was, done, could, etc, what if, i.e. won, had, could be, etc. These are words thought we use because of the belief that’ our life could have change if only, or what if this or that happen. This is a unrealistic way of looking at our life, believing that we can’t change noting about our self, and there is an unreachable thing out there. We all have things to over come, some more then other, but do this mean that we can only dream about a different life or what some may call a better life. I know that Kansas has a reputation because of the Wizard of OZ, but think of what the song Some Where Over the Rainbow means, and the theme of OZ. If only, what if, and all along those things were in front of her. We can always blame other for our not being, doing, going, were we believed we should had been or be. Why is it we can’t change or more think we can’t change. We try then give up, or don’t try at all and blame life for us not going along with are plans. This become problematic in our lives and we start to feel incomplete, so we look to other things to fulfill us. Yet never being fulfills, that why we start fantasy about if only, what if. We will always look at our life as failure, as long as we continue to make excuse for not getting, doing, or achieving the things we desirer to do. What really stop us for going for it: failures, someone else, us, laziness, are it beliefs, not caring, don’t know how? Only if, What if, these are our fantasy, because we will only do what is familiar and comfortable for us, we said we want change for our lives, but our actions are far from it. My pastor had challenge us, to quit walking in insanity, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting something different to happen. I know that people believe what they believe and do what they do, but if you are ready to go beyond only and what if, then look toward God the dream maker and ask him for direction for your life, he do love you and care for you, whether you want him to or not.

All about life

What is it we want to resolve? Life is not as bad as most of us may think. We look at things from our own experiences and not willing or even think on other people experiences. We may think of what we or other people experience, may or may not give them reason for hating or evening hurting other. We may even want to excuse them or ourselves for what we do, because of what we may have been through. Is this a good way of viewing life or our life experiences or should we look at life as important and valuable for all? As I look at my experiences and other experiences, the outlook can be very different on how we react to those things we go through. What make this different? Why doesn’t everybody who goes through similar experiences act the same way? How do we change for the better that is not being hateful, not wanting to hurt other the way we might have been hurt? What is it about life, that bring us to pain and wanting to find ways out, that eventually can destroy us. Is it that we want to look at everything in the view of what man do, or expect noting because of things we see or experience. This can’t explain the many things we see, who has experience similar or much worse that our own, yet has done much more better then the experiences they have face. Let start by treating other the way we want to be treated. Hopefully that with respect and love.
