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?

Fatalism: When bad things happen

Fatalism is not the answer!

I've had no less than four or five conversations around this general topic recently, so I decided to say something about it. Although I have several friends I want to say this to, the primary audience for this speech today is me. I spent all of yesterday in a fatalistic funk. Today, I'm choosing to make a new choice.

You are not living the life you live because of fate. Period. 

God. The Stars. Fate. They did not create the hardships you face today. There were some factors outside of you that contributed, often in major ways. But you ultimately choose how you will respond from today forward, not Fate.
Fatalism: a doctrine that events are fixed in advance so that human beings are powerless to change them. Websters Fatalism is exactly the opposite of Truth. God empowers you, he does not disempower you. If you believe you are the way you are, living the life you live, because of Fate, you are believing a LIE of Satan. That lie is keeping you bound inste…

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…

Holy Spirit > Righteousness > Peace > Joy

For the kingdom of God does not consist of food and drink, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17 NET Bible

Lexicon at Bible Hub:
but righteousnessδικαιοσύνη
(dikaiosunē)1343:righteousness, justicefrom dikaiosand peaceεἰρήνη
(eirēnē)1515:of uncertain derivation, perhaps from eiró (to join): lit. or fig. peace, by impl. welfareand joyχαρὰ
(chara)5479:joy, delightfrom chairó

Righteousness: I AM, right now, regardless of failings or faults, the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Jesus in the eyes of God. I stand before my Father in right standing not because of a single thing I've done except that I accepted his Son standing in my place. When he sees me, he sees his son, in whom he is well pleased.

Peace: Eirene/Shalom: Nothing Missing. Nothing Broken. Everything Whole and Complete. This is the wellness of spirit, soul, body, mind, finances. It's an all-encompassing peace. I need not have it functioning to understand it belongs to me. I have tools I don't use in my toolbox…

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…
