At times your mind is an auditorium as it hosts a number of cast players going by the names pride, fear, worry, and pity party .The players each take turns and they dutifully exhaust their roles. The devil sits at the VIP lounge enjoying every scene as it unfolds. He cheers the loudest as he makes the meanest remarks like, I told yah , you cannot hold on for so long.
Funny thing all the oomph about this play is just a mirage – there is really nothing fancy about it .Yet one really gets stuck there.
Getting out of it seems hard .Yet, it only takes a paradigm shift of the heart, soul and mind for everything to be reinstated. As this awful play plays in my mind day after day, I can’t help but feel guilty for allowing the enemy to depress and steal the joy Christ purchased with everything he had for me at calvary.How God is able to put up with me is way beyond the grasp of mind.
My case can be likened to that of a rich man who lives in a shanty and destitute conditions as he is so blind to see what he has .I have made such mistakes in the past. However, I will not just sit and wallow in regret as that’s unbecoming of a child of God. Reason being, the longer I keep up with this, the more I am signing myself into misery. Therefore,it is time I hide the word of truth in my heart .The anthem that my heart shouldn’t tire to sing is that of “ if I want to live I have to die”. Die to self pity,to worry ,to wrong thinking,indiscipline,lying tongue,ingratitude.There are no shortcuts in this journey I am travelling on.The path is defined .Its narrow to be precise .And only those who have allowed Christ to lift of their burdens and other loads will be able to run the race to the finish line .
That said ,the ball is now in my court. Child of God be wise.
