encountering legionary assassins with boone as your companion
Something concerning a friend is coming up and basically real life is happening. But I don’t feel angry for her sake nor am I doubtful things will be ok because I believe in my God and His grace. I hurt for her in that she has to go through this and it will be a test for her wisdom and wont be fun. But behind all of this I noticed a certain aspect to my peace concerning this. I feel a purpose. I am not saying I feel the desire to take care of this for her. I am not even in the same room as that thought. I Just noticed that in a general sense I feel like when things go like this the veil is torn back and I start to realize no matter how we blind ourselves to it, this is real life. People get hurt and have to struggle though things. In a way it is refreshing. There is a point. I hurt for those around me but it is a good hurt. It opens my eyes past my own desires and stresses and I find how God has designed this process so we may survive reality. That is why I find peace in drama. Because I feel like we humans only can experience a certain aspect of life when we finally see what is happening around us.
This is why, even when it hurts…. especially when it hurts… God is Good.
We can talk all we want about Uncle Phil being a Christian version of ISIS. We certainly cannot talk about what ISIS is currently doing.
We can speak of how we cant wait for football season. We cannot speak of the men who were killed for their faith.
We can be excited for Destiny’s release tonight. We cannot pray for the release of our imprisoned Brothers.
We can complain about Video games/movies/television/books never having a strong/real/non-sexualized enough female character. We cannot speak of the mothers/friends/wives being slaughtered.
We can view porn. We cannot see the pain of those being hurt.
Children are being beheaded.
Children. Babies. Toddlers. Eight year old boys with laughs and grins that shine up their mothers lives. Thirteen year old girls just learning what beauty is.
Be very careful you evil sadistic men and women who will fight for every injustice but the ones that matter most.
Time is running out. When Christ calls you to account for how you spent the life He died for. What will you show for it? Will that change the heart of God?
Trusting Christ is a privilege.
Suffering for Him is a privilege.
Suffering. We are destined for this.Walk into it.Embrace it not just endure it.
WORSHIP and rejoice in suffering.
