Harmony isn’t just a “Dating site”


What is harmony?  Peace, unity, order, a pleasing combination of elements in a whole.
An agreement made or balance of a suitable arrangement.
It is a working together in friendship or cooperation. linus

What is disharmony besides the opposite of harmony? It is the state of being deranged or lacking in orderliness. It is also conflict, strife, warfare,disunity or dissension.

If Heaven has only harmony, then could it be much of man’s difficulties come from disharmony?

We have constant disconnects, confusion, and cry over lack as if there is no abundance when God makes it clear he has plenty of everything to go around. (Philippians 4:19) He created the earth with more provisions than man would ever need for every person who will ever inhabit it until the end of the age.  That being said, man in his selfish habits and greed once again manage to “muck it all up.”

You may argue the point there is an evil enemy who lurks around like a roaring lion wishing to devour any and all of us. (1 Peter 5:8) However, if we humans would have figured out from the start and by that I mean Adam and Eve we could have extinguished, eradicated, slaughtered and completely wiped him out; yeah. It would have worked. But we didn’t.  So to make it easier on ourselves we will just blame Adam and Eve especially since they are no longer around to defend themselves.  

God keeps his promises which give us no way out of this mess except through him.  As common sensed as that sounds, many have no clue to pursue him. 

Why does he tell us to seek him?

Could it be if we did we would find an inner understanding and knowledge from God to explain in simple terms how to deal with life’s troubles and problems?  (Matthew 11: 28-30)

If we will allow God to reveal his processes by going to him first, he will walk us through every moment in perfect harmony.

Isn’t that “Heaven on Earth?”

Geographical Trivialities and No Nonsense Belly Aching


For the last few months the news has zeroed in on Syria. Another country chained to a sadistic dictator.

President Assad continues to ravage his people with death all in the name of power.

The ultimate in greed and selfishness, these people will do anything to keep their position.

As if that isn’t bad enough, Afghanistan insurgents beheaded 17 civilians at a party.

Pakistan has displaced 700,000 people after flooding. Civil unrest continues along with the
mistreatment of women and young girls. Rape, forced marriage and domestic violence are abuses being done every day.

Recently the police recovered the dead body of Muqadas Kainat and postmortem was
conducted which proved that Muqadas Kainat was gang raped and later strangled to death by five men. She was a Christian.

August 16, 2012 in Islamabad, a 13 year old Christian girl was beaten, and imprisoned for burning the Koran; she did not do this. She wasn’t even aware of the law. She is one of a family of about 500 Christians who were living in Islamabad who after this false accusation fled their colony as the Muslims announced over the loud speaker what she had done. Angry attackers attacked their homes, breaking down doors, and beating many of them. They burned what little they had and told them to leave.

These horrific accounts happen daily in these countries. The last 2 are the ones we, in America rarely hear about. There is little or no protection for Christians and women.

And we think we have problems here.

We have nothing to complain about.

How can we possibly be fighting over such trivialities in America when in these other countries they are glad to have lived one more day?

Our peacekeeping measures work as long as our military is present but once we leave territories full of extremists; they start all over again with the “war mindset.”  They know nothing else. They fight. They hurt. They kill.

We in America have been spared of so much. Why I wasn’t born in Pakistan or Afghanistan is a mystery. It could have been any of us living in these war ravaged countries.

Crossing my mind, many times is the huge body of water that separates America from Europe; the Atlantic Ocean.

Had that body of water not been there, our lives here may have been very different. Due to the distance between the two continents  in a strange sort of way it has cushioned us from battles; wars, and attacks of all kinds. Who would have thought a body of water would be a wall of natural protection. God?

Do you think he planned it that way?

Do you think he had reasons we don’t know about for placing the earth’s geographical regions where they are?

If that is what he did, why is Israel a sitting duck? Why is that tiny little spot on earth surrounded by groups of people that want to annihilate it?

The only answer I can come up with is God is going to show his awesome power by preserving his people and his land. No one will be able to take what belongs to him.

And maybe, just maybe our position on earth in America is the support system God planned for Israel.

Anyone want to bellyache now?
