Where would I be right now if my sins have not been forgiven? Where would I be without the assurance of love and eternity? No doubt that hope will be non-existent. I would be devoid of real joy, peace and happiness! But then I have those and in increments. I have been forgiven so much it is mind-boggling and I am very grateful!
I, therefore, promise myself today, by the mercies of God, to extend that which I have received to as many as requires it as long as I live. Holy Spirit, help me here for I cannot do it by myself! Freely I have received, freely I must give. Willingly so!!!
I am very grateful for the fresh encounter I have daily with the person of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, dear Holy Spirit, as you reveal the heart of the Father to me daily, expose and uproot every seed of bitterness that may be hiding within mine heart also. Sweet Spirit of the Most High God, take permanent residence in my heart! May I not grieve you I pray in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
A tamed 500 pounds Gorilla ridden like a horse into town is unheard of and dangerous in itself. However, if the rider notices a change in the tamed Gorilla, common sense would warrant him/her to return back to a safe zone- the environment where the Gorilla was tamed right.
In taming any animal, the animal is conditioned by reward for an expected action in a controlled environment over time since its usually done from birth. Riding a full grown Gorilla then to an uncontrolled environment with pointers strewed over reminding the Gorilla of how it was tamed is probably not a good ideal.
This is what happened in this story. A gorilla was rode on all four into town. Everyone was in awe, it was a spectacle. Everything was in order and the rider was having fun until, she/he sees what the Gorilla sees. Every iron bar is a reminder of captivity, a chain lock by a school ground reminds of restraint. The rider consciously guided this 500 pound mass away from the play ground. In an alley way, there was a barred container jolting memories long dormant but the rider saw this also and gently guided this mass away from wrecking havoc should instinct take over that moment.
When safely out of this populated area, just in the border of the controlled environment the scientist came and brought out a chain to restrain so they can give a dose of medic to the Gorilla, bringing out a chain lock, like that used to secure a bike. The rider warns the scientist seeing the look on the face of the Gorilla. It was almost like it got an ha ha moment.
This 500 pound mass just acquired a form of intelligence that cannot be tamed. It stood up and sat like human with the human trying to inject serum to kill this new sight just received so close to an uncontrolled environment. Can you imagine what will happen if this mass breaks loose. The residence and schools unguarded? What is about to take place leaves no room for guess work?
Nobody has ever tamed a Gorilla in the true sense for they are intelligent and powerful, however in a stroke of chance, if you find any tamed, I guess threading with caution will be a good idea right?
What does this mean I pondered!! What does this spectacle mean? What possible out come can be envisioned? Is this even ever possible? Please comment!!!!!! Your response will help in deciphering this message!!!!

The Importance of Attitude
This may shock you, but I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me, or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. The attitude I choose keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there’s no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.
Yet we must admit that we spend more of our time concentrating and fretting over the things that can’t be changed than we do giving attention to the one that we can change, our choice of attitude. Stop and think about some of the things that suck up our attention and energy, all of them inescapable: the weather, the wind, people’s action and criticisms, who won or lost the game, delays at airports or waiting rooms, x-ray results, gas and food costs.
Quit wasting energy fighting the inescapable and turn your energy to keeping the right attitude. Those things we can’t do anything about shouldn’t even come up in our minds; the alternative is ulcers, cancer, sourness, depression.
Let’s choose each day and every day to keep an attitude of faith and joy and belief and compassion.
Take charge of your own mind!
