Political Stuff

I usually refrain from making political posts because people end up attacking me or each other but I think our priorities are kind of messed up when certain Americans who say they don't want to vote for someone who gives handouts wants to vote Republican specifically Trump who has filed bankruptcy multiple times which is essentially asking the judicial system for a hand out.  In my opinion actions speak louder than words.  After months of research I going for Bernie.  His ideals match up more with mine and unlike other candidates he's straightforward.  I am still researching however. 

Typically with political posts I like to publish both sides just because I usually tend to disagree with both.  I feel the main reason there is income gap because small businesses have died out.  We all rely on someone else to pay our bills by trading our time rather than hustling ourselves and creating our own business.  This creates a class of people who are dependent on the decisions of a few people.  Then those people who think about business needs first take advantage.  However the reason our government is in a deficit is because our government is not the best stewards.  Waste, fraud, and abuse run rampant.  This is typically what conservatives point out.  They are also correct. 

For example the same government entity in charge of overseeing our taxes and affordable care act is the same entity who spent 4 million dollars on making a star trek movie for employee morale.  The irs has shown they aren't the greatest stewards. 

I think the tax code has to be rewritten to be clear and fair.  Without bias.  Self emoyment tax I believe is one of the biggest challenges facing the middle class.

Ok that's my rant.  Have an awesome day.  I have more to say but it could take all day.

Whoever finds God, finds life.

Your own worst enemy

     We are our own worst enemy.  Many times we go through life blaming others, our circumstances, and our abilities.  We constantly lie all the time and the worst part is we lie to ourselves the most.  In the bible it says “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? Jeremiah 17:9 NLT
     This means to me that our own hearts, being, soul is wicked by nature.  It is selfish and conniving by nature.  We typically always think things through a selfish perspective.  I've learned we are meant to be more than just selfish.  We need to love and serve others but we don't have the strength ourselves.
     We were all created for a purpose.  A purpose we were specifically designed for and that is to love our creator.  Our creator sent his own son to die for us.  What does that mean exactly?  It means that the creators son took on our sin, truly deceitful wickedness, our selfish desires so that we can have a relationship with our creator through his son.  Then we will be complete.
     Most of us are broken, purposeless, a ship without a rudder.  We don't know really what's the point in all of this.  We fool ourselves by putting our faith in our work, money, security, and even our own families but ultimately we are all human and they all let us down at some point in our lives.  The good news is that we have a creator that wants to complete us.  Wants to be our friend, companion, teacher, mentor, provider, etc.
     This is where we become our own worst enemy.  We feel we don't need our creators help.  That we can do it all alone.  We fool ourselves into thinking we got it all figured out, but we were meant to be alone we were to be complete by loving our creator and others.  All it takes is for us to recognize that we are selfish and sinful by nature, ask our creator to take away all of that sin, and ask our creator to come into our life and be our companion.
    My friends ever since I have done this my life has truly never been the same.  It is beyond words how peaceful I have been since fully accepting this.  My life was a wreck, personally with loss, and professionally and I realized that I can't do this on my own.  I invite you to do the same.
    Maybe you not sure about this but want to find out more.  I myself go to Life Church and you can go to their website life.church.  You can also join me sometime at any of their locations.
