120 Years...or more...

Lives cut short:

Our lives are cut short by so many things in this sin cursed world. Drugs, lifestyle, overeating, toxins, lack of body health care, murder, and many other things threaten our lives and the productivity of our lives today. There are more classified diseases today than one could have imagined 100 years ago. They aren't just being discovered they are mutating and increasing.

Not just 80 years:
Among the many things we CAN control about our lives is our words. The bible says life and death are in the tongue. (Prov 18:21) People in the church world for years thought of this as a biblical cut off time. People should live to be 70-80. This is not only false but very false. This is referring to the children of Israel living in disobedience. God needed them off the scene to move the next generation into the promise land.

Psalms 90:10 says: The days of our lives are 70 years, and if by reason of strength they are 80,...

Not just 120 Years:
Then some have taken the scripture in Genesis and increased our thinking to believe God for the 120 years marker...(Genesis 6:3)

However I submit that even THAT marker is not refering to man in general or even to lifespan at all, but rather an actual time frame given by God to a specific group of men, those living in the preflood times with Noah. He says that there will be 120 years from the time he declares he will rid the earth of sinful men to the time he does it. This gives him time to reach Noah and get him building an ark. Have you ever been called of God to do something and then delayed, doubted, stopped and started several times... etc... I imagine with preflood tools and an entire earth population against the idea he took a while to complete this massive project. Infact I don't doubt that Noah could have taken between 100-120 years to complete the project. He was 500 when he had his third kid and 600 when the flood came. Why not more kids? I submit that he started that ark project shortly after kid 3...

Study here:
Genesis 6 tells us another interesting fact about life and even then people are looking to use it as a cap on life. People are so quick to make the infinite finite...
 Verse 3: And the Lord said: "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh, yet his days shall be 120 years.
Verse 13: And God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before me, for the earth is filled with violence through them, and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Genesis 5:32 Noah was 500 years old when he begat his three kids
Genesis 7:6 Noah was 600 years old when he entered the ark and the flood waters hit the earth.

120 Years and beyond:

Since there is no real cap to our lives, and many tales are told of people in recent times living beyond 120 years I imagine it's entirely up to you and God. I have determined that, should the Lord wait long enough, I will live to 150 years old, strong, healthy, full of vigor and then decide how much longer I want to go. I will be stronger and healthier then than I am now. No sickness, feebleness, perfect eye sight, and full of the Holy Spirit. Like Moses who died at 120 years old (Deut 34:7), also due to disobedience by the way (Numbers 27:12-13), I will remain strong with perfect vision.

Hmm... How long will you live?

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…
