This is a GOOD one! Read the parenthesis in the last paragraphs. That’s where I give myself in!
For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.
For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him. Joh 3:16 ,17.

Only a few minutes before midnight, at 11:48 pm? I prepared to sleep. O my Father—O Father of mine? You know how I want to escape into the sleep zone. I wish to avoid the monster reality of these horror days. I want to stop looking that way. I don’t want to look and get hooked. I don’t want to embark to take part of the blame game parade.
Indeed! “For God So Loved the World…” The Spirit within my heart grieves and weep with each lash of the whip. Am I judging and condemning the condemner? Nay! How can I? I’m not less guilty than the next one. The mind. The tongue? No man can tame. We all play the same games. “Ah! The people! Oh! The people! The people this/the people that! Don’t waste your time, they all going to hell!” What about me? What about you? What about us?
“Me? You? We? Of course! We do well. We go to church. We do not kill nor steal. We don’t smoke or get drunk. We do our best not like the rest! We are productive citizens of this world. All is well with my soul all is swell! We are not going to hell!”
Oh! Oh! What about love? What about our Creator’s love for the world inhabited with people? Do we love the world loved by the Creator? Are we guilty? Yes, we are, we are people just like that rest, but! There is hope. There is always hope for all not just for you and me.
The Father/Creator of our beings has a plan for our good. The plan of restoration to the original intent for our creation—to love and to be loved is in effect. Therefore, He beckons and warns you and me,
Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; But if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword. For the mouth of the Almighty has spoken it.

I pause. I reflect. All while doing dishes or whatever chore. I reflect. Why are we so quick to judge and condemn whoever for whatever reason we deem right or wrong? Been there. Still there lots of time, but! Now? On conviction I been pardoned! My penalty? Compassion in my heart. Wisdom in my mind.
The conviction of the lack of love in my heart. The pride and arrogance in my mind. The hypocrisy of my self-righteous religious life? It did not happen overnight. I had to pay the price. The price? Yes, the price. High price. The price of self-surrender that accepts the blessing.
I had to incline my ear, to submit and consent to the divine will. I had to come to the Father/Creator’s Spirit within my heart. I heard! My soul revived! The Father/Creator made good His everlasting covenant or league with me, even the sure mercy or kindness, goodwill, and compassion promised from ancient times. As it is written,
Isaiah 55 AMP REVISED NAMES
WAIT and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy priceless, spiritual wine and milk without money and without price simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing.
Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your earnings for what does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness the profuseness of spiritual joy.
Incline your ear submit and consent to the divine will and come to Me; hear, and your soul will revive; and I will make an everlasting covenant or league with you, even the sure mercy or kindness, goodwill, and compassion promised to David.
Now? There is compassion in my heart. Wisdom in my mind. I can no longer judge indiscriminately. I can no longer condemn, but! There is the wisdom of discernment. There is no longer shock, condemn and blame and back to business as usual. “Don’t think about it.” “It does not apply to you!” “It is none of my concern!” “Forget about it!” “That’s life.” On and on we go. Either giving advice, or! Worse yet, theorizing to show off our knowledge of such matters.
Me? I called Pat. Did you hear the news about Las Vegas? Dear Pat muses, “What are we to do?” “Don’t look at the monster, Pat!” “O good! I feel better already.” Next call, “Pat, did you hear that man was a millionaire?” Thanks goodness Pat had company so I could not expand my so ‘important’ information.
No sooner I hung up the phone? It came to me, “Why are you looking at the monster?” Convicted! Guilty! Absolved. Next? Must confess the matter to my readers. Why? And why not? Must I keep my lapses a secret? Nay! My readers need to know I am not a ghost. I am a human just like the next. Only difference? You don’t let me get away with anything outside Your Loving will for me and for all my concern.
Can you see, dear Reader? There is compassion in my heart. Wisdom in my mind. I can no longer judge indiscriminately. I can no longer condemn, but! There is the wisdom of discernment. The incident with Pat helped me to discern not just blab about the matter. The journal of my life exhibits the continuous work of my Father to ingrain His compassion, His wisdom within my being.
You know what? The ways of mankind (including yours truly) are insane, (yes, my natural reactions are insane!) troublesome, heavy loads imposed on each one of us. Indeed! This world is ridden with insanity.
(Hum! Hm! Hum! The buck stops here! Hahaha! HalleluYah! I was not thinking like that when I originally wrote about the ways of mankind. I was thinking only about you all and the rest of the world, not me! Duh!)
Insanity Affect Us All! The Secret to Abolish Insanity? It’s in My Journal—My Story. Enter Into My Journal—Partake Of My Story….
The Journal of My Life holds the Secret to Abolish Insanity. Read on and on until you find that secret to avail you for eternity. (Little by little that secret is no secret anymore. Keep coming back. The victory is at hand. Freedom from our carnal selves! We will all shout the victory together!)
Hope. There is always hope! Behold! The Power Of Love And Wisdom From On High! He drenches it Upon Us All on the daily basis. It Never Fails. It Always Avails!
His love in my heart for all remains there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia.
