It is a cool rainy day and the rain continues to come down. There isn’t a bird in sight so that tells me it will most likely be drizzling for a long time. Inside my condominium it is about 69 ° and peaceful. I enjoy times like this when I can be with God without any distractions. It provides me a type of peace and I am able to refuel for the days ahead. These are likewise the times I have the ability to look back and see the lots of times Jesus was by my side and yet other times how I pushed him away believing I understood what was best for me. Luckily the older I get the smarter and more powerful my faith ends up being. I now know when to select my battles and when to be peaceful … most of the time!
The poem below is called, “Do What’s Right.” We all have choices we should make every day. You might have lost a liked one and now need to deal with loved ones. Will you keep your mouth shut even though they may be wrong? Perhaps at work there are things being done that are prohibited. Will you speak out or keep quiet? If you remain in school and a fellow student makes a degrading remark about you or someone, will you state something? What if somebody is asking you to lie? Will you? There are many times you will be confronted with the choice of doing what God says or being too scared to speak out. What option will you make?
About 20 years ago I worked for a house enhancement business and was asked to lie on some papers that were being submitted with the wrong dollar amount. When I refused to lie, the sales supervisor chewed out me calling me names and said I was to do what he stated. Needless to say when I didn’t, about a week later my position at the company was deleted. I was told it was due to spending plan cuts. Was I terrified? Yes. Did I cry when I lost my job? Yes. Was it unjust? Yes. Did I want I had lied so I could have kept my job? No!
This same supervisor would call me names and tell lies about me. He did everything he could to make me quit, however I declined to let him bully me. He remained in the wrong and I asked God to offer me the strength to withstand the unfairness and he did. I wept every night I got home from work, but I understood that God’s will be done and it would remain in his time and not mine.
No matter what you are up versus, please understand that God is right behind you and has your back. Life is hard, but God is great. Stand up for what is best no matter what the repercussion. God will be loyal and in the end you will victory. That business I had worked for … they closed their doors less than 3 months later!
Make it a wonderful day and remember you are a kid of God so do what’s. You are representing Him. He will always have your back.
Do What’s Right
I got to stand with Jesus today. I felt so afraid inside.
No one knew that I was terrified or the lots of tears I wept.
I wished strength to do what’s right and the I hoped some more.
It’s difficult to go versus the grain when you do not understand what remains in store.
I just knew I ‘d do what’s best no matter what was stated.
I ‘d utilize my heart to help me feel and after that I ‘d use my head.
It’s in some cases hard to stroll by faith, but it’s the only thing to do.
Deep inside you might know the cost, but you have to persevere.
No matter the outcome keep the faith and understand God will win the battle.
You may not see the difference today, however time will make it.
One day things will end up being brand-new. One day you, too, will see –
God reaching out his arms to you stating,” Come … pertained to me!”
Always keep in mind God likes you. There is absolutely nothing that you lack.
Stand your ground and do what’s right. God will constantly has your back.
