Don't Let Your Heart Condemn Your Soul

If you happen to be reading this, (Yes You) I have a question for you. What does your family, friends or spouse really mean too you? I used to believe that blood was thicker than water or that family really meant something or mattered. But what I have found  in this cruel, judgmental or mean world, it seems that a lot of people are forgetting about what's really important and that's our family, friends or our spouses. It's really sad that there is so much infighting within our own government, churches, families, friendships, marriages and relationships. All of us should expect to fight when we leave our home or our family, but no one should have or expect to wage war at home. It makes one wonder when is this evil all going to end and why won't most of us realize as husband wives, family members or fiends that we are all we got? I heard a very sad true story today, that really touched my heart. Its about a thirty- one year old lady, who's in the hospital with pneumonia .What sad about this story is that the young lady's organs are failing, she could die and there are no family members or friends there by her side. It makes one wonder why? Why aren't they there and why don't they seem too care? She is someones daughter, girl friend, sister or friend. It doesn't or shouldn't matter what she has done in her past, present or what she has become, she is some body's family member, someones friend, church member, co-worker or on some body's friends list on a social network and deserves better. Has the world become so cruel or heartless that we stop caring about our fellow man or woman needs?

This brings me to another story, (well its not a story sadly enough) because it has become normal or a fact of life. Our young men are fighting, shooting, robbing and then killing each other everyday. None of them(our children) sadly to say seems to respect their parents, teachers , law enforcement or even Pastors or Preachers at local churches. I wonder when are we as brothers, men, fathers, mothers, Pastors, Priest or our so called leaders are going to have the courage or faith to walk up to our young men to tell them too stop the killing. Also tell them that we love them and we aren't going to any more funerals, because they have to much to live for. Tell our young men that we want them to live and to get off of the road of destruction. Tell them to fill their hearts with love, instead of hate and embrace the wonderful gift of life. This is a special message to anyone who is blessed enough to read this, "Your children, family, friends, mother, father, grandparents and even your spouse are blessings from God". Yes! Love them while they are living and don't wait until they are gone to tell them how much you care! Stop being or don't become one of those people, who can't wait until their loves ones are gone, just so that they can collect that persons life insurance policy, money, house, car or material things! I know there may be some who don't even care or even give a second thought about these two real life stories. Before I close let me ask you are we our brothers or sisters keepers? To those people who may feel or think that I am being a little harsh, "Don't Let Your Heart Condemn Your Soul". Because what you do here on Earth will and shall be judged in Heaven by our Father God.
Have a blessed day,
Jeremiah 4:22 "My people are fools; they do not know me. They are senseless children; they have no understanding. They are skilled in doing evil; they know not how to do good."

Jeremiah 5:21 Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:
Ezekiel 12:2 "Son of man, you are living among a rebellious people. They have eyes to see but do not see and ears to hear but do not hear, for they are a rebellious people.

  1. Charles, this story doesn't surprise me at all. I've witnessed friends and family members who have siblings that not helping with the care of their ailing parients. So much responsibility on one or two people while the other siblings are living their life like no one is in need. I couldn't comprehend until it happened to within my family. I had to do alot of praying and so thankful for my daughter who picks of the slack. I just pray that I don't get weary in well doing. While my dad was in the nursing home, I visited him daily while see other people with no family to come see about them. So heart wrenching. I tried to help them as much as I could. People are just so selfish these days.
