What Do You Really Want From Life?

Updated on March 12, 2011

Good and evil-which one will prevail?

The struggle
The struggle

Who represents love?

I first want you to know that this hub is not demanding anything of you but only to imform you of the many questions you have asked and to let you know that many are where you are right now. Please take a moment to read it. Then you decide. Ok?

So many believe that believing in God means they are a holy roller or they will be set apart from their friends and family if they believe in God and live a Godly life. That they will be cast aside and hated or treated like they are different or that they are the plague. That they can't enjoy life and what it has to offer anymore. That it's all over. They are embarrassed and or ashamed to even acknowlege God.

Have you ever asked yourself what God represents? What God stands for or who God is. Or do you even care? You've been a person of the world and you enjoy the benefits. So what are the benefits and are you really satisfied and is there more? Is there more to life and do you want more from life? If so..

Ask yourself these questions. Is love a good thing? Is peace a good thing? Is joy or contentment something you hope for? Do you wish that hate, anger, fear, jealousy, distrust, depression, confusion would just go away. That these distructive emotions would disapear and no longer influence and control your life or your happiness. And why are they even there???What is the purpose for them?

Good and evil resides on the earth. Without evil we could not distinguish good, likewise. We are given free will to decide what works for us and what does not. Good is good and bad is bad. Fact. We either live happy or sad.

We all experience trials. Trials are things we go through until we figure them out and come to terms with them. Trials are moments or days or even years of suffering until the problem or problems are solved. Change can only happen through trials. If we didn't go through trials we would never learn a better way. Fact. Trials are for our betterment. Agree?

We all want to feel better, to feel good about life. How do we get there? Once we face "the truth" about something we are able to deal with it appropriatly. Even tho the truth hurts sometimes it is still the truth and the facts remain. The truth never goes away. We just need to except it. The truth brings about more understanding of a situation whether it is good or bad for all effected by the circumstance. It is then and only then that we can make a constructive decision and apply it. So...the truth will set us free from the lies. Fact.

Love. Everybody needs and desires love. Fact. Faith is a good thing. Faith is an extention of our Hope. We have hope that all things will go well and we believe with all our hearts that they will. Faith is nessessary in hoping that things will come to pass. So why can we have hope and not faith, for without faith hope is in the air. There is no substance or benefit to it. Faith and hope are both unseen, therefore having faith is essential. If we can have "hope for" and "faith in" then why can we not believe in greater things in all things pertaining to our life? Peace within. A most comforting and content feeling. And Joy....knowing we have all the above. This would be the ultimate life, would'nt it?

Now I ask you....What does God represent? What does God stand for and who is God? The answer is All the above. Now we look at the other things I mentioned. Hate, anger, fear, jealousy, distrust, depression and confusion. Now ask yourself these questions. Why do we hate or get angry or fear or get depressed and confused?

These are battles, things we struggle with. All built on lies and deception. If we were really aware of the truth behind them we would overcome them and be free from the bondage they put us in. Fact!

So many spend too much time in these emotions. They allow these things to control their life and overwelm them and become their main focus. These horrifying emotions are intended to cause us to self destruct because these emotions are self destructive. We have been deceived by something. Blinded by and led astray.

Nobody in their right mind wants to be a bad person so...with this being a fact then they must be being mislead or simply nieve. Right? Follow me here. They must not have a clear understanding of something so, if that be the case then can you really hold them responsible/accountable for their actions or inactions? This is where forgiveness on your part comes in. If you feel they are accountable then lets remember...Hate breeds hate, anger breeds anger, revenge breeds more revenge and so on. Then happiness, love, hope, joy etc; goes right out the window. Evil has prevailed. Fact.

Would'nt seeking after "the truth" the real truth bring healing on both sides. Healing brings forth peace therefore forgiveness. Peace in a persons heart, mind and soul. Seek it. Seek after the truth for it will set you free from every stronghold that has you in its grip. I tell you the truth!

Lies are meant to decieve us. Keep us from the truth. God represents the truth and Satan represents lies. Satan is the master of deception.

If you ever come to a place in your life where you desire all that is good, essential and wonderful and you come to realize that God represents ALL that is good and that he gives them all freely to those who ask, then I would say that it would'nt matter how, where, when, what or who cuts you down or persecutes you for it! And if you are persecuted then it is because they are without understanding. I will say...Welcome to the truth!

With this understanding you will find genuine true happiness if you seek after it, for this is the way (the only way), the truth (the only truth) and the life! and if anyone tells you any different then they need to seek after the truth also and be set apart from the lies and deceitfulness of this world .

God says.."If you are ashamed of me I will be ashamed of you before my Father in heaven". So why would you be ashamed of someone who is good and only wants good for you? Why do you reject him?

If you want a life that has so much to offer you and so many to welcome you that really want whats best for you then find a church that believes in the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. For all are nessessary. The reason I say the Father is because our Father in heaven is God and he sent his Son Jesus Christ to this earth to teach us, comfort us and die on the cross for our sins so we could be set apart from sin and be free from it. Jesus is The Word that was sent upon this earth and his word is written in the bible.

There is more to the bible (a lot more) than just words, there is wisdom and knowledge and.. meditating in the word brings the Holy Spirit into your life to teach you and comfort you and help you and heal you. Prayer is essential to healing in all areas of ones life. We need to pray, for one in prayer is having a relationship with God and God desires to have a relationship with us. In prayer we not only ask but we thank him for what he is doing and for what  is about to do. In the bible it says that "Where two or more are gathered in prayer, it shall be done". This is more power in prayer. If you believe with all your heart, expect it and if it alines with Gods will, it shall be done!

My life has changed drastically because I believe. I went to church last Sunday and my Faith was recomfirmed. God breathed a breath in me (literally) that I had never breathed before and it was awesome! It was deep and restoring. I wept and praised him for the love he showered on me! Theres no feeling that compares to his Love!!!!

My Out of Body Experiance with Jesus!

I'd like to share something with you. When I was 18 years old I had an out of body experiance. This only happened once in my life. I was laying down in my sisters travel bus (we toured together as singers), I don't recall falling asleep. The next thing I knew I was standing before Jesus and the heavens were dark except for a dim light in the distance. With this light I was able to see Jesus's face. He was huge! I was smaller than his nose. He spoke a thousand words and his words were not of this world and they were quick but very clear and I understood them to mean only one thing and those words were meant to change my life. He was telling me I needed to get my life together. I then became aware I was not in my body and I wept because I felt I was loved more than I had ever known in my life. I realized at that moment my body could not move. I had to wait for me and my body to become as one again. I will never forget that moment!!! It was amazing!!!

We don't have to know what is in store for us when it comes to God. He will direct and guide our path. We just need to replace our will with his will and believe me his will far superceids our will. Our will has gotten us nowhere. His will will get us everywhere! And we have eternity in heaven with Jesus and our loved ones that have gone on before us. You have nothing to fear anymore for Jesus says; "Fear not for I am with you!" Amen and Amen! Praise be to God our Father and his unfailng love which will abide in us forever and ever!!!

In our worldly thoughts we wake up everyday with the same ol same ol. Would'nt it be nice to wake up knowing that God has something in store for you? It could be a miracle, something that gives you a far greater purpose than you ever thought possible.

If you want to learn more about whats in the bible revealed from in depth studies about whatever it is you need to know or comfirm I strongly suggest you read one or more of these hubs from the link I have provided below. Judah's Daughter (her name) just finished a hub entitled "'The Lambs Book Of Life". God Bless you from the bottom of my heart!

      I am reminded of the Scripture, "Without Me you can do nothing." But also, I can do "all things through Christ who strengthens me." I so agree that the key is what God's will. Your conviction and not God's conviction will have you banging your head into a wall. That's why I try not to have dreams to follow. I tend to dream my will. But God's vision for me is different than my dreams. It works God's will and not my own. Many times it is not where I would want to go at all. (until I get myself right). I love you my precious sister.

      There is still something we must do. We must come to a point in our life where we "genuinly realize, beyond a shadow of a doubt" that we cannot control the flesh. We cannot completly control evil, we need help. God will help if it is in aline with his will. This is when we truly begin to trust him in all things. We cannot overcome till we genually and completly give it to him. Until then, we will remain in it. In the sin. I love you brother!!!

      It sure seems commonsense to me. Choose God - choose life, reject Christ, embrace the flesh, choose sin as the thing you will cling to and you will lose that life. It is true "he that loves his life will lose it." Jesus paid the price and all we must do is let Him. Makes sense to me, especially since I have nothing to pay that sin debt with. I'll let Jesus do it for me. Love you sister, Bob.

      Thank you Dave! Right you are! Hope is for things not seen, as is Faith. If we can hope can we not also have faith in what we are hoping for? Faith that it shall be done and faith comes from our Father. Faith is the most powerful thing one could have in their life yet some of us regect it. Blessings to you!

      Thank you GarnetBird! An unbeliever's hope is singular, on individual things in the moment and they don't believe there is a power greater than them or life itself. They believe they hold all the power and believe that doctors etc; hold the power of life in their hands. Mortal mans power only goes so far and thats it, but the power of God goes beyond. As the Bible says.."All things are possible with God"! If only they would believe..their lives and the lives of their loved ones would be in greater hands! Blessings!

      Thank you djbraman! All joy and peace of this world is short lived because things of this world will eventually shut the door on them. God gives us an everlasting joy and peace that cannot be moved from it's foundation because God is for us so nothing can come against us for his foundation is built on a firm ground, a ground of truth and where there is truth there is unmoveable and unchangeable hope, love, forgiveness, joy, comfort, assurance and most of all faith in all these. Therefore we have faith in God who provided them to us. For God gives us a Spirit of all these through his Holy Spirit which is everlasting and nessessary for us to be truly content/happy, therefore the meaning of life is hopeful and reasurring. Blessings to you!

      Thank you RevLady! For those who don't believe I am telling you God is real! I had my doubts, but as soon as I decided to give my unmanagable frustrating and depressed life over to him I am seeing a difference! Praise be to God and blessings to you sister!!!

      Thank you DeBorrah! God represents all that is good so by doing what is good we represent him! We should never feel shamed or embarressed of God for he is the one who created it all! Blessings sister!

      A recently newly adopted saying or expression usually seen around Christmas Season could and should also be applied at this time of the year, even more so during the Easter Season.

      It is now seen on cards,posters, and yup here in Toronto,Canada billboards, and even bumperstickers, yes bumperstickers.

      It is thee most appropriate saying that any Christian should be proud to display and repeat and validate 100%.

      I quote. "Jesus Is The Reason For The Season"

      As a Christian, If it were not for Jesus and His sacrifice, there would be nothing to place our Faith and Hope on.

      Loving Christ, by choice,

      Brother Dave.

      I don't know what non-believers use for HOPE. Especially today--thank you for writing this.

      Nothing in this world ever gave me peace and joy. It was all short lived. But with Christ an inner peace takes over and none of life's crisis moves you off your foundation. An unspeakable joy reflects the inner you forming on the outside. I didn't begin to live until I died and Christ resurrected me into a new man! Well, Glory! Good hub!

      TimesHealsAll, Great question! Choosing God really is the best thing that you can do in life. God brings purpose and balance to your life!

      "We all want to feel better, to feel good about life. How do we get there? Once we face "the truth" about something we are able to deal with it appropriatly. Even tho the truth hurts sometimes it is still the truth. The truth brings about more understanding of a situation whether it is good and bad for all effected by the circumstance. It is then and only then that we can make the proper decision and apply it. So...the truth will set us free. Fact." Amen!

      Thank you for sharing this insightful hub! In His love & Blessings1

      Thank you sis! Life doesn'nt have to be so difficult. Life can be made simple if we just look to God. You are right on when you speak the word of God which says "Lean not on your own understanding". God will reveil himself to us in ways we could never imagine if we look to him. God Bless you and I love my little sister!

      Awesome message, sister! Straight from the heart and what a testimony! In my study of the wise man who built his house upon the Rock (Jesus Christ) and the foolish man who built his house upon the sand (anything other than Jesus Christ), BOTH were subjected to the rains, floods and winds (Mat 7:24-27). You are right on, sis! The peace of God passes all understanding (Phil 4:7) and in Him we trust, and never have to lean on our own understanding (Prov 3:5).

      I pray many hearts are touched, healed and brought into the family of God through faith in Christ Jesus ~ that's all it takes; He will do the rest. And He who began a good work in us will be faithful to complete it until He comes again! (Phil 1:6).

      Love you so much, sis!! Keep on sharing the love He's shown you and placed in your heart that others may know that He lives and loves them!!
