For God did... and does. But do I?
A common response to the real world and the reprieve that requires our involvement is “we’re not worth it”. Close family or associates should stir a fight, beyond this, the connection's gone. The first war a century ago, was in certain practical harder times, leaving a generation in Britain decimated. Why so many threw themselves into joining up to fight, shows a community sunshine we know little of today. Through until the 60’s, the local was regarded so much more acutely, local’s shared ownership. Albeit with gentry holding deeds and certain powers. Then came T.V. and the big shift over to Government taking control, on to the Internet capturing and shape us Globalist invasion.
An awoken turnaround? Where's this based on facts showing encouragement? Our desperate situation seems mired in complacent stagnation. A missing spark-plug is a sense and involvement in wider community. It's at best fragmented causes but this, a strategy working to oppose. If participants haven't a NWO clue, as long as the aim isn't a thorough slavemaster con. In finding local initiatives, even authorities-based options to participate in, we're resisting.
God is said to be ‘our very present help in trouble though the earth gives way’ and soon after; ‘He makes wars cease, breakes the bow, shatters the spear’. Well which is it? Then comes, ‘be still and know I am God’. Faith and prayer the decisive factor. Not be still and passive out.
In grappling to do this, I ought to explain, talking God-wards is all one stumbling groan. Hardly basking in heaven open. Spluttering little-much that feels or sounds strong. Clambering along, persistently restarting. If tiring, takes one more shake out from, or when, dozing off. Barely know what words to say. The only thing I know: Must and will do. Allowing sorrow to wash-up out the tides of emptiness doesn't help. Vague worries for tomorrow and memories that shame, flickering back on me. The first step of faith is to demolish this. Towards breakthrough and better ways. Nowhere else to go.
God loves the world, a reflection we've been steadily losing in decades and degrees. Research on student's levels of empathy, has plummeted. Not to decry all moves student-wise, there are some healthier trends but it speaks of significant changes. Good news, God loves the lot of us, empathy hasn't slipped an inch. Good news, God is worth us loving this world over. Knowing this - and if someone like me could get a lot more healed-up and touched by - will be unction to galvinise.
