YES, I know. Slow. Little posts. Yadda Yadda.
There have been many things happening that I couldn’t talk about and it would be better that I didn’t. Though like most I find myself pushing forward and wondering when that break is going to happen.
I was listening to a sermon last night. I found it fascinating actually. A lot of Christians tend to toss the Old Testament off to the side and pretend it doesn’t exist or that it was a rough draft for the real meat and potatoes in their eyes which is the New Testament.
This sermon though I was impressed with. It linked the old and new together much like the Catholics do, which is rarely seen in the Protestant world much less the more Evangelical flavors. It was about faith and the story of Abram or Abraham. Many see this story from the modern point of view and from the New Testament point of view. Most fail to see and comprehend the true tests that occurred. The years of not knowing when the promises would come true. The doubts. The taking matters into ones own hands and trying to force a claim to the rewards promised. The over all weakening of faith and out right in what would today be considered blaspheme. Abram even fell to the ground and laughed when God came to him to let him know the time was present for the fruits of all his labor to begin showing.
Doubt is a sneaky little critter. That’s why when I communicate with my God, I always ask for strength, wisdom, peace, and fortitude.
I share this today because, I personally have traveled my fair share and I am still traveling. Growing. Living each day the best I can. I know if there are times I doubt, I fear; then others do to. So hopefully it helps to know the old adage is true, ‘this too shall pass’.
Stay focused. Focus on what is important and not all the little annoyances of the world.
With that I am going to share one of my favorite music artists. The humor and perspective is what I personally believe we all need to tote around with us each day.Static Magick
