And Grieve NOT the Holy Spirit by the way you live, the way you act and the words you say . Ephesians 4:30

Awesome article to help us become more sensitized to the Holy Spirit.

Ancient Paths

 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption

This is a verse that I don’t hear often, but how many of us consider the Holy Spirit within us before we speak, act ? or think?  watch a movie? read a book? gossip? or before we treat someone badly?

As the world starts to run down the wide and easy road to destruction, I want to warn you of the dangers of grieving the Holy Spirit and falling off God’s path for your life. When God showed me I had grieved His Holy Spirit, I felt like I had hurt my best friends feelings. I suddenly understood how important the Holy Spirit was to me. I had always relied on God’s Holy Spirit, I knew He was always with me but I decided to ignore the right thing to do and go my own way…

A Good Quality of Life

This is such an amazing blog post that I think everyone should consider before we go about whining our way through the day. Not that everyone does…but we all do at some point, me included, whine about things that really are not all that important.

I’ve been thinking a lot about quality of life issues lately. More specifically, I’ve been trying to figure out why some people that (in the natural) possess virtually everything we think would make for a good quality of life, yet they’re miserable. Conversely, many others have almost none of the ingredients that we think must be in the mix for a good quality of life, but they seem perfectly content.

I think about this issue more and more as life with ALS becomes an even greater challenge. If ALS takes its natural course, the victim will die of respiratory failure. The muscles needed to breathe become weaker and weaker to the point where you just can’t breathe anymore.

The Bible vs the Sodomites

Genesis 13:13 says; “But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly.”

Jesus said; “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”
