Facing Life

Overcoming curses

“We were put in this world to help each other do both.” ~The Wishing Map

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, knowing that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Therefore, let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, no longer lacking in anything.” ~James 1:2-4

  1. I might have been less likely to call them curses…and more challenges that need to be overcome…but guess to each their own.

    Each second that passes, I should not have to repeat and suffer again … / Give me a real purpose, I cry out, and it’s not enough simply to live / nor that it’s a beautiful sunny day with colorful fragrant flowers! // I’m tormented hourly by my desire for emotional, material and creative gain / that ultimately matters naught, I explain. My own mind brutalizes me like it has a sadistic mind of its own. I must have a progressive reason for this harsh endurance! // Could there be people who immensely suffer yet convince themselves they sincerely want to live when in fact they don’t want to die, so greatly they fear Death’s unknown? // Oh leave me be to embrace and engage the dying of my bitter light!

    This verse from James is going to be VITAL for the western church very soon.
    A recent song caught my ear, “if it puts me in the fire, I’ll rejoice ’cause You’re there too,” and I wondered if the singers really understood what they were singing so glibly.
    Pray for the Church that we will be ready for the purifying fire that is coming.
    ❤️&🙏, c.a.
