Church is where I go just about every Sunday to receive the word of God. I love it. Not only do I hear the music, but I feel the music. The older I get, the more songs hit me. The sermons are inspirational. I get the sense that I am not alone and God is by my side. I know that if I continue to go to church, listen to the Word, meditate on it, and apply to my daily life, I am going to make it into Heaven. But what about the handful of people who come up to me and ask me to pray for them so they can make to Heaven? I invite them all to church with me, and they all say, “Nah! Church is not the place for me. I don’t deserve to be in God’s House.” Excuses, excuses! Do these individuals really think there is a such thing as a buddy pass to Heaven?
Everybody gets into Heaven the same way–by their own merit. God’s will must be fulfilled by the individual. It cannot be done by nobody else. No one’s road to destiny is the same. Nobody can depend on another person’s faith, service, worship, and praise to get himself/herself into to Heaven. There’s no pass to present at the pearly gates that states that a close friend or family member has granted permission to enter Heaven with them. The only way to get into Heaven is to put in the work individually. There’s no way around it.
I will gladly pray for any person who is in need of prayer; however, my prayers alone are not going to get anybody into Heaven without them putting in their own service, worship, praise, and faith. We are all God’s people. Everyone is allowed to come to church. God doesn’t shun people away. People ignore God and reject Him, thinking that He first rejected them. That’s not true. God wants everyone to be in His house. I cannot convince God to allow anyone, but myself, into Heaven. Friends and family cannot get me into Heaven and vice versa.
Go to church and build a relationship with Him. Do what needs to be done to fulfill His will. That’s the only ticket into Heaven. Not doing this is a recipe for disaster.
I have decided to dash away the whole idea of writing about my favorite TV show, “Ugly Betty.” I have changed the name of my blog to P.O.W. Pink Owl’s Word. I came up with the name Pink Owl for myself a long time ago. One of my favorite colors is pink and I love owls. Pink is the color of positivity, it’s cute (like me), and it makes a statement. Owls represent wisdom. Their vision is sharp. My mother blessed me with the nickname, “Sharp Eye,” at a young age because she could never hide anything from me. I pay attention to detail.
I plan for my writing to cause people to think, discuss, and question. I want to hit them with my words (in a good way). I want my words to go, POW!
This is my first ever blog. I chose to write about my favorite television show Ugly Betty. I absolutely love this show, and now that I have a DVR cable box I can record every episode and watch it at any time. I just found out that my favorite show is about to be a thing of the past. According to Wikipedia.com, Ugly Betty will air its last episode on April 21, 2010. I’m sad about that. I don’t watch a lot of television and there haven’t been a lot of TV shows that have kept me glued to the TV since Sex and the City. I’m gonna miss America, as in America Ferrera. America plays the title character, Betty Suarez. Hello world! Welcome to my blog.
