Proverbs 18:1 He who willfully separates and estranges himself [from God and man] seeks his own desire and pretext to break out against all wise and sound judgment.
When things go wrong, it’s easy to, as they say “crawl under a rock” and forget anyone else matters for a moment. In those times, nothing seems easier than to “die to the world”. In doing so countless opportunities are wasted, not necessarily on purpose, but simply because nothing holds relevance anymore. Sure, there is always that thought in the back of your mind that you’re not the only one with problems, but everyone else’s problems just don’t seem to ever get better, so why should yours? They’re only dragging you down, right? Then there’s those people who think they can help, what do they know anyway? All these questions tend to come to our minds in a state of deniable complacency, it’s not that you don’t care, you just don’t see how you can help.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of complacency taking us out. We as the body of Christ have to chose to stand together, forget the empty prayers. Am I saying not to pray? Of course not, but if you don’t mean it, shut up. Prayer isn’t supposed to be the easy way out, it’s by all means not bad, but praying isn’t your only part. The easy way is like, many things but lets start with this;
Candy/cookies/stuff like that
Is that necessarily bad? In essence, yeah, but a little of it won’t hurt. Too much can cause all kinds of problems inside you that you don’t even know about. Sure, it’s what you want, it’s sweet, it’s good for you, right then, right there. But after a while, you’re hungry again, in fact those unpronounceable chemicals are causing you to desire more. Like taking the easy way, once you’ve done it once, the hard way seems like such a pain in comparison.
After hiding under the rock so long your head becomes numb to the pressure.
Why do we hide from problems? Because normally there’s this little sense that says “It’s my fault” “All they’re gonna do is blame me” and we tend to believe it. Where do you think thoughts like that come from? The enemy. Why would the enemy make you want to climb under a rock? Because there, you can’t do anything to stop them.
Once again, I’m probably just rambling, but hey you were the one who read all this xP
In any case, I have some other drafts to finish and this thought has blanked out.
Live long and prosper, Tori Lynn.
