IGNORANCE IS BLISS

Yesterday I kind of blew my stack when I discussed being offended.  Sometimes it’s better to just not know all the ugly stuff going on in this world.  Sometimes it’s better to be blissfully ignorant.  Well – not really!

God wants us to be watchful.  He wants us to know the evil that inhabits our planet.  It’s a good thing to know your enemy so you know how to combat him.  It’s also good to be vigilant and stand up for your beliefs.

As soon as we let our guard down, the enemy weasels his way into our thinking, our way of life, our politics, our very existence.  It is our duty as Christians to be educated in the ways of the world.

Luke 21:36  “Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
but also to be learned in the ways of the Lord.”

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    It’s nicer not to know that there’s a rattlesnake under the next bush; it leaves one feeling a lot more peaceful. Until we step too close to the bush …
    You’re right on: Ignorance is bliss … and blissful ignorance, is terminal!
