They say we should be positive thinkers all the time. But I would rather be
a realistic thinker with pretty much a positive perspective and attitude..
Another American journalist,
Steven Sotloff, of Time Mag just got beheaded by #Isis (who has long declared war on the USA). Guess it’s past the time when we should have started to get a strategy. http://ow.ly/3pN7jh
At least 20 other American journalists are still in their hands.
Isis has declared war on us, but you watch as our leader and still have your mom jeans on. You signed up to do a job that you refuse to do, so we demand that you take a golf break and resign effective immediately.
Feelin’ low? Well, He (God) can make your feet like hinds feet ..nimble.. to be able to handle it well when He puts you up on high places for His glory instead of for your own. Walk humbly instead of all full of yourself in pride.
In a sense the way up is choosing to go down where the people are and serve. And the way down is to put yourself up. So many people do that and aren’t up on top of the heap very long. They get put down.
If we die to our old fleshly nature, to our own destructive way of sin…and I don’t mean killing our fleshly bodies cuz that would be selfish and dumb - you are valueable, have great worth, have been bought at a price and aren’t really your own…then we can really live! I so want you to live as you were designed to live. This all might seem religious or counterintuitive to hear, but it’s true. And it can happen right, cuz you are already rightly loved.
"He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied…" -Isaiah 53:11
"Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve… You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." ~ Martin Luther King
