Beulah Land

Beulah Land

Faith is the oasis I walk toward, to eliminate the worldly exposure of, “why bother? I hear that two word statement too often. I know it because I, myself, have said it, felt it, and cried it into my pillow! Why bother!?

 

There was a voice that kept giving me an answer, but I wasn’t hearing it. In fact I was a bit concerned about hearing any voice, given today’s agenda of misfit humans. Then one day I stepped into what I call, “my prayer closet,” and politely asked this voice to “explain or leave me alone.”

 

Don’t change the channel because you think I’m a preacher! One song sung in peace and reverence of G-d means more than any 2,000 word power sermon! I am the way I am because I have chosen a road that leads to that faith oasis.

 

I am an avid reader of “The King James Bible, version 1611” without a copyright. That means that the company that translated the original voices or languages did not add or take anything away from the 1611 version. That’s what I read. Why bother? Because I really believe there’s a power that’s running everything… He is the beginning of time and the end of time. There are no coincidences… everything is planned out from the beginning. Keep living, “it” will prove “it” to you.

 

Back to the closet: I had been reading my KJV1611 and noticed a set of verses about having a “prayer closet.”  I was reading Matthew 6:5-8:

  • Verse five talks about being humble, not loud and proud to impress people.
  • Verse six says to enter your closet, shut the door, make your prayer secret to Him and He will openly reward you.
  • Verse seven says you can keep it short without vain repetitions, much speaking, and
  • Verse eight tells you to avoid being proud and that your Father knows what things you need, before you ask him. (All paraphrased)

 

Okay, so why bother with this? Remember I’m walking towards that oasis where the faith is kept. I didn’t know that the oasis was the faith. That place, that spot that you come to and you feel really content with a higher power running everything. You are no longer taking on the big role of “gotta do this, that, etc.” You are clearing your heart and mind to remain in this faith oasis. Old-timers referred to it as, “Sweet Beulah Land

Sweet Beulah Land

 

I’m kind of homesick for a country,
To which I’ve never been before;
No sad goodbyes there will be spoken,
Oh time won’t matter anymore.

Beulah Land I’m longing for you,
And someday on thee I’ll stand;
There my home shall be eternal,
Beulah Land sweet Beulah Land.

Well I’m looking for a river,
Where my faith will end in sight;
There’s just a few more days to labor,
Before I take my heavenly flight.

Beulah Land I’m longing for you,
And someday on thee I’ll stand;
There my home shall be eternal,
Beulah Land sweet Beulah Land.

Beulah Land sweet Beulah Land.
