Had a wreck yesterday. I don’t know why life has to be so hard, but it is. It’s about putting one foot in front of the other. It’s about being kind when others aren’t because everyone is fighting a battle. It’s not about sermons, demanding others act the way you think they should act because they aren’t going to act the way you think they should. Once again, nothing can be won by force what can only be won by submission. And I’m not writing about the kind of submission the 1950’s man lorded it over women and minorities. Those days are history, and women and minorities have had enough. I’ve had enough. When anyone bullies anyone else we all lose.
Abuse and bullying in any form should not be tolerated, and before you fly off the handle at it make sure you have all the information correct before you enact justice. Anyone can be the victim of abuse or bullying. And if you decide to lie about it like the actor from Empire know that liars burn in hell (Revelation 21:8). That’s not my semantic. I’m just the messenger.
Life is hard as hell. I don’t know of anyone that doesn’t face adversity. If you don’t have adversity then I feel sorry for you, but I don’t think anyone who reads this blog can make that statement.
Look at Tiger Woods last Sunday at The Masters. He created his own living hell by the choices he made, and I’m sure his ex-wife and lawyers didn’t make it any easier, but look at what he overcame to win the 2019 Masters. Greatness doesn’t mean you won’t fail. It means you got back up more than you stayed down.
I had a wreck yesterday, but I went to work today, and now I share this hope with you. I hope you’re encouraged.
