THE SIMPLEST OF THINGS!
I believe most of us and some of the worst of us want basically the same thing, to be Hopeful, for others to Honor us, to do our Duty, to have the Freedom to move about the planet, and of course Justice; to be treated the same as everyone else regardless of our birth situations.
There is really no need to Goggle me, I just want The Simplest of Things, but for some reason they are elusive, and it seems as if hard times can sniff me out with one whiff. I believe this happens because we claim trouble at the slightest indication it may come our way.
Don’t get me started on the Power of the tongue coupled with the Know it All’s.
Have we trained ourselves to expect trouble always, causing us to give up on our day will come because of the lack of Faith? Are we really afraid to hope for fear of failure? Will we allow things hoped for that did not surface knock us back, crushing our hopes by destroying our faith? If so, there is a solution to all that drama.
When you fall get up with something besides fear. The smart thing is to pick up some courage and begin again? For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2nd Timothy 2:7
We can have the simple life if we are not afraid to look beyond ourselves. We should know by now that any man who seeks, honor and praises God through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior will be granted his desires.
I want to get ahead like most of us, the blessing is: I know having a giving spirit coupled with wholesome ambitions play a big part when it comes to success. So my attitude is, I ain’t messing up my blessings trying to get over on you; I would rather do it the ole fashion way; Earn it.
And when it comes to Honor; No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave. Calvin Coolidge
Duty calls for maturity, and maturity is being able to carry out a job until it is finished. As a matter of fact, maturity is often achieved when we can put off our right now pleasures for long-term values. And we know we have matured when problem solving becomes a priority, and when making mistakes in the midst of all our frustrations we can still speak and act with dignity.
Freedom comes when we are comfortable within ourselves and surroundings.
When we feel a certain type of way about who we are, often we become sure-sure so it may be safe to say we know ourselves. But we will never experience real freedom until we give all the Glory to God by shedding who we pretend to be, and stop lying about who is in control.
A word to the wise: We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be. Kurt Vonnegut
And we are reminded in Matthew 5:36 that we are not Gods; You cannot make even one hair white or black. It’s easy to get caught up and start believing our own lies, the Devil is good at turning us against ourselves, and we don’t even know it.
Fairness is what Justice is. It’s as simple as that, but often hard to come by. Did you know fairness is not an attitude; it’s a developed skill that unites people everywhere they go, so when we are fair, we generate solutions and are able to compromise with one another using the power of reasoning.
I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it’s for or against. Malcolm X
I want The Simplest of Things, because like the small things they carry their own importance, and I know in order to have them I have to kick the hardest of all evils to the curb; Pride, Selfishness, Jealousy, etc… It’s those things that make having “The Simplest of Things” impossible to obtain and Hell to pay.
It’s Something to Think About!
Thank you, Lord, for all you do and it is in Jesus name that we pray. Amen!
