dichotomy

I gave you meat and you became a cannibal. I gave you life and you live it in spite. Fulfill your dreams – fulfill my call, this is all that I require. No more and no less. All else is shackles. All I ask for you to give, is what I already gave. By my power you breathe, by my strength you live. With the life I gave you – you sin. Fulfill your dreams by answering my call is all I ask, this is all I ask. All else is shackles. All else is chains. With threads from the fabric of your life – by your neck you hang.

This is War.

Life is difficult, at times it seems impossible. Such is the nature of existence on a fallen world. How much of the pain and sadness can you bear alone? How much of it is in charge of your life?

So, you can’t do certain things… is this different form normalcy?

So, you have to adapt your life to your ailments… is this so impossible to overcome?

It can be a burden beyond enduring for those that refuse to lean on the Source of Life. For them, I have nothing but pity and empathy. What agony it must be to endure and claw through the day on your own – by your own power in a broken shell of a body! I pray for all those who are bearing the burden of life and find themselves in a grief stricken hole of despair. It comes to all in various ways and is made known in various levels of pain or sadness, agony or rage. But, come it does.

All on earth must endure. How much better to endure as a champion of the Most High and walk, run, or crawl as you are able all the way to the end of your days here, always with a bright shining light and a deep compassion in your heart. How magnificent to scale the walls of an enemy stronghold and take him hostage in his own house whilst fighting your own weakness and physical limits! Drive on! Stop fighting when you’re dead. This is war.

 

Ineptified Construct

Most people live a life of double innuendos,

rapidly searching for secret shadows to creep into.

Sometimes they get caught by suspecting bedfellows,

some days their game is a never ending success.

At times the mirror cracks and the facade is destroyed,

Yet they ever progress toward the nameless void.

The blackness inside becomes the darkness without,

and no one observing is left with any doubt.

The identity they showed us is false and obscure,

we will never know who they really truly were.

Lambasting generic fear mongering

I am getting so tired of people spewing random conjecture as if it were fact. But, that’s usually more a symptom of complicated thought processes encoded into a few short phrases in order to quickly convey a point. My biggest beef is the people that intentionally market their own brand of blanket-blaming. Calling out entire sub cultures or sub categories of people groups and blaming them all for specific atrocities. Racism, sexual insults, religious bashing, sexism, blah blah blah. I would love to see more random comments from complete strangers that lead to new thoughts, or anything nice. Anything whatsoever that is complimentary or self aware or non-toxic. Please, people. It’s difficult, but it can be done.

If anyone serves, he should serve with the strength God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen. 12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial that has come upon you, as though something strange were happening to you.…Berean Study Bible · Download
