We all have a PULSE ~

We all have a PULSE ~

Are you trying to figure something out ~

Are you trying to get answers to questions ~

Are you a person and not an a piece of furniture ~

Then you have one ~

A PULSE ~

It means your alive ~

It makes you real ~

Your heart beats as a reminder ~

In the center of this amazing reality lies the ingredient of choice ~

Free will ~

It can be revolutionary ~

God allows it and designed it ~

We can use our will for selfless non-manipulative pure works for the greater good ~

But, if our will is of trickery or ill thought secretively self-serving for deceit or revenge ~

It can be destructive and devastating ~

At times, it's be balancing act, on a tightrope of which way we may slip in response to that will~

The Holy Spirit reveals knowledge, are we listening? ~

Imagine the possibilities with the gift of the Spirit ~

The Holiest Spirit and lighted glow of our Lord guiding us through our stages ~

Remember stages are always changing ~

Different scenes different lighting ~

Happy stages and sad stages ~

Clear stages and confusing stages ~

Right stages and wrong stages ~

Most importantly is that our stages are shared~

We are all on the same stage of life just different settings ~

We all have good roles and bad roles ~

We all need to experience life and understand just when we figure things out ~

New scene ~ and ACTION!

Sometimes you get to play the good guy~

Sometimes you get to play the bad guy ~

Sometimes you get to be the teacher ~

Sometimes you get to be the student ~

Sometimes you get to be the question ~

Sometimes you get to be the answer ~

Sometimes you get to understand ~

Sometimes you don’t ~

One day if we just have Faith and Believe ~

We get to meet the Director ~

And He wrote the SCRIPT ~

We will all have tough times, bad times, broken times, at times critical and not fun times. We also will have beautiful, happy, memorable and euphoric times of great joy. People on the outside of your window will always attempt to look in and understand your experience. They want to relate to your scene or, at least, learn something from it. We are a society that craves knowledge. We will always assume we know what we would do in any given situation and we are always shocked when that is not what we do when truly faced with the actual event. If we can process and understand things we could somehow control our life or so we think. We attempt to shelter ourselves from the beating pulse of life especially if it slows down too much or speeds up too fast.

Let's be honest we like things NORMAL. But what is NORMAL? What if NORMAL isn’t normal at all and it changes and it will? What if it is no longer normal to eat, or drive or use spoken language? Think about it, we are all so used to our normal and we get lost in it. We even try to protect it in so many ways. If we do this, will things stay normal? If I do that will things be normal? What is constant? What can you rely on? We can rely on the one who gave us our PULSE!

Life has a PULSE a rushing of blood pumping through our veins. We have a desire to have peace both inside and out of our physical self. The truth is, our pulse of life does get to fast sometimes and sometimes it gets to slow. Sometimes we want a little break and sometimes we want more of the euphoria and sometimes we just want to breathe. Sometimes we want it to stay still and quiet as it is as near perfect as we can imagine. We all feel it when we exercise, sometimes we can feel it or even hear it, our PULSE. Sometimes we can feel it stopping and when that happens it doesn’t matter anymore because that is when we know what is constant.

God is constant, He is all powerful, no matter what others think or say about us, no matter how completely lost you may feel. NO MATTER WHAT! All the time we should talk to God. He will guide us. If we are open to Him and His whispers. God decides how our pulse will be in response to the life He has provided and He also decides how others will react to it. He will decide when you are to be strong and when you are to show weakness. He gives you strength faith, love and even humor in difficult times. He understands things will come against you. How we field those curve balls is so important and we will have our moments, but with Him all things are possible.

You are wonderfully made. No one person is more important to God than you. Others will judge and assume and decide how you should be, react, in belief or even feel. They believe they know a better way for you to be. They even think they may know how they would do your role differently. Try not to worry about that. There is a reason He did not cast them in your role even when they are in your scene. They are important and so are their feelings because they too are important to God. We all are. They are just not part of this role. God gave you the lead for this one and He will direct you.

God loves you no matter what, He gave you your pulse ~

My reference to stages is about different stages of life ~ childhood young adult adult senior ... and how each stage of our lives is designed by God our Director and He chooses our cast in each stage. My book has that in the title :) I do see the humor in the family comment you can choose your friends but not your family. But then again when you become a Christian we are all suppose to be family so guess we are in trouble either way LOL

Hi Dave ~

A funny thing just happened I wrote a response and when I went to enter it went poof away. Talk about will LOL

When I mention Free will I am talking about the Free Will that God gave when He created us. This will is discussed as far back as the garden. He made Adam and Eve and provided for them everything. He required one thing of them . To not eat from the fruit on one tree in the garden. The tree of knowledge. He gave them for a better word choice, right from wrong. The choice was made to His disappointment and therefore there were consequences. So I would never make the claim that by my will am I capable of anything either physical or emotional without the desire or will of my Father to complete a task. It is by His will that all things are possible. However I do realize as in Romans Chapter 7 that i will struggle in my flesh. For although I have committed my life to Him it is by the flesh that a war of WILL is to rage until I am with my Father in heaven(God willing~ no pun intended) As Paul states I know what I want to do but I do not do as I want to do... The flesh binds me until the glorified and with my Father. It is by this flesh that we will struggle. As a christian we commit our lives to following Christ and attempting to be like Him. Again we will still battle with the flesh until the day when His will is finally decided in my life. I know he died for me and by His blood I am free. Sadly in this body on this earth the tight rope with remain. I do know this tight rope will not be temptation in heaven but rather a joyful piece of gym equipment, but here it is a different story. Thank you for sharing hope it is okay that I clarified my thought. Have a blessed tomorrow :)

I like the part about stages. What's that about, "The world is a stage?" Was that Shakespeare? You get to audition people who come into your life, and it's up to you whether to keep them on your stage. EXCLUDING of course, your family. lol.

My main disagreement is one that I have with other Christians too. I fully agree that we have "Free Choice" the right to choose but I see it as impossible to have any form of "Free Will" Neither you or I can simply look at an object and "Will" it to move from one place to another, But God and Jesus Can. In the Lord's Prayer we state "Thy Will be Done" Not thy will over my will be done. Therefore only God has the power to "Will" Something, as He willed the world and everything in it into being.

Thank you Dave

Disagreement is a good thing it allows for us to have discussions and learn from one another. Communication is so cool like that. It is only when we stop, that we stop learning. Have a great Day :0)

This is great. A lot said here makes sense, though there are some statements I disagree with.

Thank you for this Hub it got me thinking.
