Reputation There goes the lie on spindly legs. It crawls about trying to find a route out of the doubts that it may not be who it seems. The Lie: We must protect Reputation - at all cost: kill if you must steal, fight and cuss. But don't let out the truth of what it is... Constructed to please the crowd now a monster too proud to be cowed by humilty. Knees stiffened back straight eyes fixed on success' frivolities. Now it goes through the door Head held high headed for the gate that leads straight to hades. Humility stand just a way off, waiting for those who seek, waiting for those who are meek.
Honesty Honesty says yes she was self-serving in serving. Honesty says yes she tried to get ahead on top of your head. Honesty says yes I made many mistakes and was blinded by pride. But - she is ready to make an effort to be better do better and remain honest that she is imperfect.
Two Elephants Fought
Two Elephants Fought Two Elephants fought, and there was inconsolable weeping because they brought nought but senseless destruction and bleeding. Two politican made a bet, each from the comfort of their cars how many citizens will welcome death to make them their luminous star. Two enemies tampled underfoot, the gentle blades of grass, the grass rooted helplessly looked as hastily their futures scurried pass. Two goliath drew their sword, in a worldly display of power they each declared themselves lord but mercilessly shreded the gentle flowers. Two sycophants stood at court, before the people looking for their support but their words were poison and lethal. The weak though many, are the ones who get hurt the ones whose loads are heavy loads which stomps them slowly in the dirt.
Harvesting In Crisis
Harvesting In Crisis Are you in a crisis or are you in a harvest? Your crisis can be somebody's harvest. What you did will expose you. Did you keep the faith set a good foundation? Hard Times are here, They come to expose you. They will tell you the truth, reveal the true you. What will you see in your mirror? Do you see strength or Do you see waste? Will you make it through, last long enough, so you and all you do may gather for the harvest?
No More I know we say it's for the best that it is love expressed by sacrifice That's the test! But enough! No more! If fear is the centre of our world it will crumble with no true love returned. Let us stop painting fairytales that create too many scales that hide the ugly truth. Let's give over to loss carried and tossed by the misfortunes of reality. No more let us cling to a dream that destroys Selfesteem nor be a slave to a misfortune gained in infantile candour.
What is Required of You
At a time such as this many people search for relieve. A relieve from constant bad news, death, misery and the threats of things seen and unseen. There is no end to the quest for relieve. However, finding such relieve seems to be more impossible as each day goes by. No matter what you do or how good you think you are trouble finds you. Now, this trouble comes in many forms and you get overwhelmed and run scared.
In your flight maybe all reason escapes and you start making bad choices, you start doubting yourself, God and every single person you know.
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God?
As you seek to outrun your thoughts, fears and bad choices you become lame and get slower and slower, until your feet give out and one day you and your burdens fall to the ground.
What to do then?
Stop running. Let us stop running. We can never out run the problems around us and the problems we have.
We need to stop and realize that everyone has problems, we all have burdens we carry, the only thing is that some may seem lighter than others. Is it possible to support each other, bear each other up? If there is a need we are more than capable of bearing each other up. If we can mange it, why have we abandoned the cause to simply be kind, spare a thought for someone else’s suffering and not just our own. Even if we get annoyed with others, we can’t take out our frustrations on them. We have to resist the urge to lash out, judge and condemn. We have to dig deep even while we carry our individual burdens to be fair to those around us.
Can it be done, knowing how we can be? It can be done, but it takes a constant struggle of doing what is required of us and not what we feel like doing just because.
