We all have a PULSE ~

Updated on June 14, 2017

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 a piece of furniture

Then you have one


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

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 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 stage 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 at this 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

He is, was, and will be our everything

No Matter What!

No matter what trust the one who gives the pulse

We will have tough times, hard times, broken times, and not fun times. We will have, happy, memorable and euphoric times of great joy. People outside your windows will always try to look in and understand your experience. They want to relate to your scene or, at least, learn something from you.

A society that craves knowledge and people assume they know everything. They become shocked when not sure what to do when faced with a similar event. To assume if we can ignore and understand things we could control our life is laughable as the flesh lies.

We to shelter ourselves from the beating pulse of life when slows too much or speeds up too fast.Let's be honest we want normal. But what is normal? What if our idea isn’t normal, and it changes, as it will? What if normal is to no longer eat, or drive or use spoken the language? We are so used to our normal or are we lost. We even try to protect it. Because admit it we love whatever we consider as normal.

But, you can rely on what is constant the one who gave us our PULSE!Life has a pulse a rushing of blood pumping through our veins. We hope to have peace both inside and out of our physical self. Our pulse of life gets too fast sometimes and sometimes it gets too slow. Sometimes we want a break, more of the euphoria, we want to breathe. We wish for life to stay still and quiet when it's as near perfect as we can imagine.

The pulse is always present we notice it when we exercise, sometimes we can even hear it. what if the pulse it stopping? When that happens it doesn’t matter anymore because what remains is that which gave us our pulse, to begin with, If we know what is constant.God is constant, He is everything, no matter what others believe, or how lost you may be in your own normal.

NO MATTER WHAT! Talk to God, He will guide you. 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 decides how others will react to it. Our Father will decide when you are to be strong and when you are to show weakness. His strength gives you, faith, love and even humor in difficult times.

Understand stuff will come against you but you are never alone with your stuff. How we field the curve balls is so important and we will have our moments, but in these moments try to remember His grace. Act according to the grace that God gives to you and things will be okay. Let go of figuring out and trust who gave you the pulse. The pulse of His Spirit is grace and mercy loving one another in the highs and lows. Come alongside one another while not necessarily in agreement, but rather in unconditional love no matter what.

God gives grace so share it

One person is not more important to God than you as we are all made in His image. Others will judge and assume and decide how you should be, react, or even feel. They believe they recognize a better way for you to be. They think they can do your role better. 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. Nonetheless, we are not part of every role.

God gave you the lead for this one and He will direct you. Here is the tough part, there will be times you play the Villain and other times you play the good guy. No part is less important to the growth He has designed for you. Don’t improvise too much in the scenes His direction is perfect.

The outcome is a happy ending even when we can't see it when we are in the show. Life is so temporal and therefore not surprising we struggle with letting go to His Spirit. Control is a tricky thing when we have it we may lose it. To have too much control can empower us to a lofty state and then we spiral downward. The desire to control is not healthy unless releasing it to a power greater than self, a power that will reign in its purpose.

Denying self, yet reacting with self-control is a humble use of control. Realize you’re never in control when it consumes you, and better able to have control when guided to humble refrain, of a power not of self. The pulse in your veins ignites when released to the power of the one who gives us that pulse.

God loves you no matter what, He gave you your pulse, be sure to share the enthusiasm of all you can do with this life when counting on the God who gave us our life pulse.

Ordinary people can be extrordinary

Pulse by Melissa Etheridge Honoring the Orlando victims

The song pulse was written honoring the Orlando tragedy victims!

"I am human, I am love, and my heartbeats in my blood, love will always win cause underneath the skin everybody's got a pulse."

everybody has a pulse, use it to love one another, hands up if you're alive!!!!

      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.
