Good morning to you! My title: crazy way to start out the day. For those who’ve read my posts, it’s not that far-fetched. Actually, it’s quite the opposite. I was talking to the Lord, again (…again and again and again and again lol) concerning what’s been happening since Junior High (hmmm, I think even since elementary) the build of mounted anger and frustration for change. A specific change of humanity and worth! Yelp. Small things that matter most is, merely, an afterthought for many. If only it were my yesteryear.
Then versus now is the ability to articulate, though simplicity may be better (lol), and loquacious. “An ounce of joy that can penetrate the deep seeded pain of everyday.” Yes. That sentence seems like it’s incomplete but it is the BARED essence in the mental tug-of-war faced each day. We bear things that strip (bare) us passed vulnerability. The companionship of hostility is liken unto the murderous ways of taking a life: guns, bullying, etc. It is the “going through hell” moments presiding in prevail and, as it appears, there’s no stopping it! Which brings me to this window of opportunity.
In talking to God I thought about the scripture “He’ll keep you in perfect peace who’s mind is stayed on Him.” Now, that seems absurd. I said to Him, “That whole statement seems like you stay in the mental state of euphoria. I cannot afford to act like life isn’t happening.” And this lead me to the search. I didn’t add the apostrophe in ‘he’ll’ which, of course, is ‘hell’. And the song by Rodney Atkins pops up “If You’re Going Through Hell”. The song I needed for the service I render this morning!
I encourage you this morning, and in times to come, that:
“If you’re going through hell, keep on going. Don’t slow down, if you’re scared don’t show it. You might get out before the devil even knows you’re there. …. If you’re going through hell, keep on moving. Face that fire, walk right through it. You might get out before the devil even knows you’re there!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l50L4GYhpLc
