If you can’t swim, you can’t help someone drowning in the deep end of a pool.
Today, people you know are drowning in life’s deep end of frustration, anger, anxiety and fear.
This short post has Three Simple Steps for one of the following reasons:
- To help save your own life.
- To help you save someone else.
It begins with a reveal about humankind’s #1 desire: For Freedom. And from any listing of them, the following seven will show up as very significant.
In ways we can only imagine, Adam and Eve, heirs of Eden and God’s amazing grace, enjoyed:
Financial Freedom, with the vastness of Eden’s lush acreage.
Relational Freedom among themselves and God their Creator.
Environmental Freedom – without any pestilence or poison.
Educational Freedom with open ended conversations with God.
Recreational Freedom with sacrificial, transparent sexuality.
Emotional Freedom from guile, deception,and self-indulgence.
Spiritual Freedom no “trap” of hypocrisy, superstition or anxiety.
But due to the “stinking thinking” now rampant in all humankind, they lost freedom, prestige, and rights.
See, the joint managers of God’s pristine creation gambled and lost their wealth believing the fiendishly foolish lie by Satan who told Eve:
“You’ll become like God.”
Beginning to see why real “freedom” is now so temporary and elusive?
Now ours is a legacy of flawed thoughts. Our natural tendency for the traps and trappings of “roller-coaster” living and regret stalk us daily. Lifelong – as mourned by Tevye, love-able dad. The devoted milk – man in Fiddler on the Roof:
“Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset, swiftly fly the years
One season following another, laden with happiness and tears.”
Yup. Tevye’s sad brooding is about the fate of all humankind.
Seems all we can do now is mourn the loss of our freedoms in Eden by “mom and dad”
See why, even if we’re “top of the world” happy – there’s a gnawing we’re “in make believe” and later we’re miserable – but “normal” again?
Due to our loss in Eden, “normal” is a fleeting bird. One sooner or later we’ll intuitively let go.
But there’s good news!
Ours is a feisty spirit – sure, been beaten down since Eden, but:
… still is not totally defeated!
Know why? Well, here’s the thing …
John 1:11 reveals the hard times Jehovah God suffered on earth in the body of his Son – Jesus:
“He came to his own, (the children of Jacob or Israel) but they didn’t accept Him:
… so now to all who accept Him – God gives the power to become His sons and daughters, and to:
Really Enjoy Life. Everlasting life”. (our paraphrase)
And permanently regain our long-lost freedoms.
Just another reason why Lord Jesus Christ in the person of His Holy Spirit living in us – hooks us every day to be:
- The very best we can! And why:
Today in century 21, drowning in life’s “deep end” of frustration, anger, anxiety and fear is…
Completely Avoidable!!! So, here’s the:
Three Simple Steps to Take If You’re in Life’s Deep End
- Everyone is born into slavery to Satan and sin.
- We must be born again. simple as A, B, C.
- Admit – “I am a sinner”

What To Do Next…
