Pool Fun

Posted in Religion & Spirituality: Christianity by joeprainito on November 16th, 2012

Do you like swimming? You know, like most people I love swimming, whether it be in the ocean a lake a pool, or a simple puddle to stomp in. Yes I seem to find some sort of humor and entertainment from some of the simplest things, and why shouldn't I? I really do Love life!

You see Sometimes we can get so caught up in the stress of everyday life that we forget to have fun. But let's consider, do we really think that Jesus came to this earth, was beaten, bruised, scorned, humiliated, and murdered so that we can live miserably? No way...Jesus came that we might have joy in this life.

In John 17:13  Jesus states that He desires that we will have the full measure of his joy.

So I encourage you, dive into a pool, jump in a puddle, play a game with your family! Amongst the stress I encourage you to Enjoy your life....you can be assured...it's Gods will that you'd do so.

Dentist Drill

Posted in Religion & Spirituality: Christianity by joeprainito on November 10th, 2012

I hate the dentist, the chair, the dental assistant, the shots, and especially the drill. But there's one thing that keeps me going back to the dentist, the desire to have good breath, and the desire to have a good smile. Well maybe that's two things but either way I know that even in the midst of all the drilling and numbness, the final outcome will leave me with a smile and breath that'll leave me looking like a smiley happy camper

You know this life has a lot of crazy things that we have to endure. We endure pains, hurts, losses, and sometimes have to make decisions that honestly we just don't want to make. but we must understand even in the midst of our trials, God has a plan where His final outcome is that our joy will be fulfilled.

1 Peter 1:6 says

Be truly glad There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine.

So let me encourage you, even though this life may be drilling on you, just know that there is great joy ahead that much like the dentist visit, will leave you smiling from ear to ear. Remember, if Our god brought you to the trial He will bring you thru the trial....

Thanks Give Me

Posted in Religion & Spirituality: Christianity by joeprainito on November 26th, 2011

It’s that time: holiday cheer, the sound of sleigh bells, and buy buy buy our way into happiness. Yes Thanksgiving is a day to remember the many blessings that have been given to us; our life, family, our jobs, and our eternal salvation hidden in Jesus. We have so much to be thankful for, yet as thanksgiving presents itself, many homes are planning how they can chime in on the holiday sales, beating others to the stores, gaining the best bargains on that new TV, or gathering all the videos they can at that all time low price, and the attitude that fills the malls; well its an attitude that’s everything but an attitude of thankfulness.

Honking horns and cursing can be heard in the shopping mall parking lots, cutting in line, shoving and pushing is found on the inside of the stores across the nation, and the thankfulness found on that day; well I guess it only lasts until the turkey has begun to digest. We find people uptight, and stressed, neglecting to take a moment to remember what the Lord has done in their lives. Listen scripture says in the book of Hebrews 13:5

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said; “never will I leave you never will I forsake you. So we can say with confidence, the Lord is my helper, I can not be afraid what can man do to me?

I encourage you; take your time remembering what the Lord has done for you this year. The year may have presented its trials, you may have had to endure some tribulations, but be encouraged by the fact that God, the God who created you, loves you, and will never leave you abandoned. So when you're out doing your holiday shopping, remember the greates gift that has been given to you, is not only priceless, but it's free; so give it away; the love of Jesus Christ.

Twas the Night Before Christmas

Posted in Religion & Spirituality: Christianity by joeprainito on December 18th, 2010

Do you remember those days of gathering around the fire, and reading the famous book Twas the night before Christmas? We remember the reindeer, and Santa Clause, the stockings ready for a fill up, and presents that fill the tree with shiny paper ready to be ripped apart. But in the Midst of all of this, have we forgotten the real reason for Christmas? Have we forgotten what God did one night in the manger with one woman, who gave birth to a baby, that one day she herself would call Lord? Listen to this Podcast and hear the story of Why we celebrate Christmas Day...

Twas the night before Christmas

Joseph and Mary on the Run

Knowing King Herod wanted the head of their son,

They came to the inn, there weren’t rooms anymore

Not a bed, not a cot, not room on the floor.

Mary went out to the fields with the cows and the horses

She gave birth to our savior all heaven rejoices.

Joseph arrived and said “what did I miss”

But when he saw baby Jesus he offered a kiss.

A star brightly shines for the world to see

Is God saying I now unite you unto me.

Believe in my son and you’ll never die,

Draw near unto me and to you I’ll draw nigh.

God said anything you ask in Jesus name you’ll receive,

Give love unto others and you’ve done t for me.

Though Santa is jolly and places gifts under your tree

My gifts will not perish if you live unto me.

So remember this Christmas to keep Jesus your sight.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good LIFE!

Have you found difficulty finding time to pray? Have you found difficulty while trying to hear the voice of the Lord speak to you? Television, Compact Disks, Radio, and other media outlets have become a very loud noise in our homes these days. Trying to find a quiet place in our homes to read our Bibles and pray is rarity, but that doesn't make spending some quiet time with God any less important. God desires that we would set some time aside to spend with him, but the truth is that we've made cell phone calls, social networking, programmed T.V. and Radio a priority while wondering why we just don't hear the Lord speak to us. Truth is...if we want to hear from the Lord, then we need to make some changes.

Matthew 6:6 says: When you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut the door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place, and your father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

You see sometimes we just need to shut the door to the things that are going on around us. we need to shut off the TV, shut off the radio, silence the phone, and spend some time with God, I tell you the truth, not only will the Lord hear your prayer, He will speak to you, give you direction, and give you a hope that is greater than any sitcom, phone call, or radio program could ever give.

News Helicopter

Posted in Religion & Spirituality: Christianity by joeprainito on April 7th, 2010

Have you ever heard a traffic news update that reported everything but the traffic? More than likely not. These reporters have one job when they step into the cockpit of that chopper and that is to report the traffic, if they did anything else we’d be a little upset wouldn’t we? We want them to do their job of telling us the best roads to travel that will get us to our destination without any accidents or detours. Because when they do their job we get to plan our lives more effectively.

In a like manner there are many Christians who have failed to do their jobs as Christians, and no I’m not saying that we need to get into a helicopter and report the good news of Jesus; however that wouldn’t be a bad idea. However we are instructed to lead people off of the road that leads to hell, and give them the news that will lead them towards the paths of righteousness, and eternity in Heaven.

Scripture tells us “to go into the entire world and preach the gospel, make disciples”. But many Christians have just sat back and enjoyed the scenery of the world, fixing their focus on the things of the world, and failing to do as we are instructed to do. I encourage you to set your sights on what God has called us to do. Let’s begin reporting the good news of Jesus to the world. Not only will you lead others to a life of joy with Jesus Christ, but God will be sure to show you many many amazing things throughout your life as a result of your obedience to Him.
