Stressed-out anxious farmer, or peaceful-easy, cheerful farmer? You decide.
We can all get a little crazy, anxious and stressed out.... A simple secret to a sweet, happy and more peaceful life amidst the stress and anxiety. "One secret to a sweet and happy life, is learning to live by the day. It is the long stretches that tire us. We think of life as a hole, running on for us. We can not carry this load. We can not fight this battle continuously for a half a century. But really, there are no long stretches. Life does not come at us all at one time; it comes only a day at a time. Even tomorrow is never ours until it becomes today. It is a blessed secret this, living by the day. Any one can carry his burden, however heavy, till nightfall. Any one can do her work, however hard, for one day. Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, until the sun goes down. And this is all life ever means to us - just one little day. “Do ... not weaken or distract yourself by looking forward to things you can not see, and can not understand”. God gives us night, to shut down our little days. We can not see beyond." -Fr. Lasance, My Prayer Book, p.51.
What's the best thing I could want? (Serious question)
What’s the best thing I could want: money, pleasure, success, fame, shiny stuff, security, and good things in all the world? How do they compare to... Eternal life... if there is, eternal life. Would you trade one for the other? Forget about if you believe heaven and the afterlife exist or not, just think about the question. Wouldn't it change everything?

YES. Religion, God, Jesus, Christianity is something for the weak.
I am Weak. A lot will argue that religion, God, Jesus, Christianity is just something for the weak… and I would agree. Yes, religion is something for the weak. And I think if we are honest, we all would admit that we are weak in some way. It is strength that is an illusion. Only God is strength. Jesus says: “My Strength is made perfect in weakness”. (2 COR:12).

Please consider supporting this ministry at: https://www.imbeggar.com/take-action Video Transcript: I love I you. now before you laugh or make fun of me, or just think I'm weird, let me tell you what I mean by that first. I don’t mean it in some fake, warm and fuzzy, sentimental kind of way. And I’m not saying it just to be nice, or to look good, or to get you to like me. What I mean is, at the very least, I only want what is good for you. At the very most, I mean, i'll give myself, my life, in any way I can, for your good. And I don’t care how I feel, or how I look, or what Im getting out of it, or if I feel like it or not. Love doesn't go this way. Only this way. And who are you? Well you could be anyone. my friend, my family, my spouse, person I like. well thats easy, anyone can love the people they like. What about the person I don't like, the person who doesn't like me, the person nobody likes, what about the person I totally disagree with, the person who's completely different from me, there person I want to hate, the person everyone hates, the person who repulses me. DOESN'T matter. Love doesn't pick and choose who to love, just like the sun doesn’t pick and choose who to shine on, it just shines. And what is your good? Well it's all those little things that are gonna help us find the one thing that we all want, that we’re all searching for, happiness. as much as we can find here in this life, but more importantly, the full happiness that we can only find in the next life. and I'll love you no matter what you do, but that doesn't mean I’m going to love everything you do. Love has to be tough, sometimes even fierce. If you do anything that's gonna harm, impede, poison, delay or divert your good, or the good of anyone else's, I have to stand against it, not you. Even if it's awkward, even if it's unpopular, even if it's gonna turn you against me, for a little while. But even when love is tough, Love is always patient. That's why we have a whole lifetime. love is always gentle, kind, tender, loving, never pushy, preachy, pointing fingers, rigid or mean. and I don’t care what you’ve done, or how big you've screwed up, or how vast our differences are, or if your life is a giant, global sized disaster. love is bigger than all these things. And I don't care how worthless, or flawed, or unlovable, or insignificant, you think you may be. love breaks through all these. and if you get hurt, which we do, or get into trouble, which we do, or get beat up by the world, which we will. and you're tired, and angry, and bitter, and miserable, and scared, LIKE THE REST OF US, and feel like you’re, drifting all alone in a sea of, suffering… ill suffer with you. and if we disagree and get into those epic fights, which we will, and even if you betray me, and laugh at me, and make me look stupid, and walk away a thousand times, Ill forgive you, a million times, because nothing that could ever happen in this tiny little universe, could ever be more important to me than you. Not even myself. This is what I mean when I say I love you… but this is not my love… my love is weak, and self-centered at best. this is his love. and he said, he commanded, go out there and love one another as I loved you. so I'll say it say again even though I know i'm gonna fail at it a million times today. [I love you]
Stop Calling Jesus a good teacher: He was either a Madman, a Conman, or God: you choose.
You can say Jesus was many things, but stop saying he was just a good teacher, or a philosopher, or a nice guy. There are only three choices: madman, conman or God. Who is Jesus? A philosopher, a spiritual sage, an all around good guy, a great moral teacher? According to C.S. Lewis, there are only three options, and we have to make our choice: Madman, Conman or God. A beggar's take on Lewis' trilemma argument. #imbeggar #whoisjesus #jesus
Sin will destroy these 3 things in my life right now.
Sin destroys love which destroys relationship. Sin is the anti-love. Whether you have faith or not, we all live in relationship with ourselves, each other and with God. This isn't about heaven or hell, its about what does sin have to do with me, my relationships, my psychology, my heart, right now! Before we ask, what is sin, we need to ask, why is sin bad and why should I care.? Or in other words: what does sin do to me right now. Then we can begin to understand why sin is God’s greatest heartache. CURIOS, go to channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGSmy2st0rb63fAkoO1aGyw?view_as=subscriber
This is who you are in the mind of God.
Who am I in the mind if God? You were an idea in the mind of God long before the universe existed. What is my identity? How do I find my self worth, and where does it come from? Finding my worth in the mind of God. Whether you believe in God or not, just imagine that you were and idea in the mind of God long before the universe ever existed, before time and space, before anything. How would this change how I look at myself. How would this change how I look at others.

Do God and science contradict each other?
Does religion (God) and science contradict one another? Can religion and science coexist? What about evolution, DNA, the big bang theory? For some reason, we have the idea that it has to be either God - OR - science, as if one contradicts the other, as if one disproves the other, as if they are two opposing forces at battle, and only one can win. But if there is a God, and God is truth, then truth could never contradict science, and if anything, science should lead us to God, and never away. 👉 PLEASE HELP: We really need your help to survive and grow.

Is religion just another myth, fairytale, or legend?
Is God real? Was Christianity just made up. Or a myth, fairytale or legend invented for control, money, and power? Was the God of Christianity copied from other ancient mythical gods such as Mithras, Horus, and Dionysus? Is there any historical support to this claim? What do the scholars say? When asked, why do you think Christianity was made up? The most common answer given is: for power, control and money. But this cannot be the answer simply because: It’s impossible. Historically, the church had no control, no power, and certainly no money until, at the very earliest, the mid 5th century. That’s four hundred years (or more) after the death of Christ. That’s like saying that the United States was "made-up" for the purposes of something that will not occur until another two hundred years, or more, from now. Without a doubt, there were times throughout history where those in the church did abuse her power, (and unfortunately still do) for control and money. And this is gravely wrong. But to say that Christianity itself was invented for this purpose… is not only impossible, but disregards history. Much more at.. https://www.imbeggar.com
Why do I feel so empty, bored, unfulfilled, like something is missing...
Why do I feel so Empty, bored and unfulfilled like something is missing, like I want something more like there's this giant hole inside me. Want to fill the hole? CURIOS? GO TO CHANNEL: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGSmy2st0rb63fAkoO1aGyw/videos?view_as=subscriber Much more at: https://www.imbeggar.com video transcript: Why do I feel so empty? bored, unfulfilled, like something is missing, like I want something more Like theres this giant, bottomless, infinite hole inside me. So I try to fill it with all kinds of JUNK, to make it go away. but these don't work, they give me a quick high, but it doesn’t last, leaving me frustrated, addicted, and wanting more So I think, maybe its me - maybe i'm the problem. I need to be bigger, better, smarter, funnier, better looking. So I build myself up, on the outside, into some PERSON that I don’t even know, that don’t even like, and on the inside, I beat myself down, sometimes severely, and I feel more empty. Then I think: Maybe If I get my shit together and have the perfect job, with the perfect life, and the perfect money, and all the perfect shiny things I've ever wanted, that will fill the hole. So I work, and I work, and I work, and I work, But these things never work out the way we want, and now I got to deal with dead dreams and feeling like a failure. And even if they do work out, and I make it to the top and get all the things I always thought would make me happy, when I get there, I look around and I say, now what? Something's still missing. Time passes, the emptiness has been sitting, festering, fermenting, farting, becoming toxic, and it changes me, making me, bitter, critical, and self-centered, and i blame everyone and everything around me for not fulfilling me. and I go from job to job, relationship to relationship, place to place, leaving a real path of, cheeriness along the way. Ultimately, Im tired, I'm done searching, I just don’t care, and I give up trying to solve the mystery of the hole, and just deal with it. I'm perfectly fine going back to stringing together enough distractions and stimulations to get me through, keeping me MODERATELY SATISFIED, until the day I die. Of course, on the outside, no one would ever know, everything appears to be going exactly how I wanted it to go, exactly how I planned it to go. A big success, the perfect facade. But on the inside, I'm all alone, and I groan. Quietly. The truth is, I can have all the pleasure, wealth, success, admiration, and all the good things in all the world, but they're not gonna fill the hole because, they're just not big enough. The hole is bottomless, endless, infinite, these are all limited, ending, finite, and only the infinite can fill the infinite. So what is it? What's big enough? What's bottomless, endless, unlimited, infinite? Why do I feel so empty? because we're made for fullness, and only God is fullness.
it's what you're searching for (and may not know it)
It’s what I’ve been searching for my whole life and don’t even know it. What are we searching for, whether we know it or not? From the voice of the great orator Fulton Sheen, ("Life is Worth Living"), comes this excerpt about what we are made for, what we are searching for, and the definition of God.

Why doesn't God just show Himself?
If there is a God, and God can do anything, then why doesn't He just show Himself, then it would be a whole lot easier to believe... We all might ask this at some point in our lives whether we believe in God or not, so the question is: what would be the best way for God to reveal Himself? ... well, how would you do it?
