Wrestling with thoughts this morning. It was a late night for us. We left the house for the second time last night and drove into Mt Vernon for a Political Meeting. Second one in my life time for me to attend something political.
What literally amazed me was the mire that folks allow themselves to get into and they get so deep into they cannot find the truth in anything. Remember I have written before when you live in sin or you are not on the right path, you are living in darkness. Your eyes adjust to that darkness. Everything continues for you in darkness. Suddenly when someone opens a door and the light comes at you, you shield your eyes and turn away from it because the light hurts your eyes. That was what I felt last night.
If you believe in something and ally yourself with the beliefs of a group or a political party, you stand for it. Despite all the flying accusations from an email and other stuff, when someone from the audience spoke from his heart passionately about the condition of this country and where we need to be heading to better ground... it brought applause from every one but two tables of folks. It seem to imply they disagree with trying to get America back into a better place. My question to them was, are you with us or against us? Why were they there if they did not share the common beliefs of the this political party? Why were they not supporting the current elected officials?
The truth often hurts. It is much easier to turn away from and not face what caused the pain or the problem. The true reasons behind what we do are often buried in the quagmire we camouflage them in. When you lash out at someone in anger, you may not really be angry at them, but frustration from earlier in the day will set you off if someone looks at you funny.
"My wish for you my friends is the happiness that I have found. You can depend on Him, no matter where you're bound. I'll shout it from the mountain tops, I want the world to know, the Lord of Love has come to me, I want to pass it on."
It only takes a spark to get that fire going and bring light back to our lives, our homes and our towns. We have to believe and stand by those beliefs passionately. The Lord must lead, guide, guard and direct us. We cannot stand unprepared for what is ahead. We must rely on Him to light the way.
“He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”- 1 John 5:12
