Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be"
The jet packs and Rosie the Robot maids that we all assumed would be the norm by now have been replaced by terrors abroad and on home soil...dishonest leadership...nonexistent accountability...and disregard for creation.
We never discussed this in home ec class...
Hell and damnation were reserved for the vilest of sinners...while the rest of the population would just float along in a sea of tranquility and blow bubbles from wands dipped in the imagined squeaky cleanliness of their noble lives...not a care in the world.
But we know that’s just not real...
What is certain is -
- have struggles
- grow weary
- feel pain
- lose loved ones
- not understand
- reach a breaking point
- want to give up
there are promises...
more promises than the “might happens”...and “will happens”...and “already happened”...and the “happening right now”...
When you have to step off the shore of supposed safety and venture into deep waters...and the buoys and life preservers are hidden behind the darkened clouds of a world gone mad...and arms flail and feet slip and heads threaten to go underneath the unrelenting current...
the Father’s strong right arm reaches down,
the Savior lifts up,
and the tide turns as the Spirit rushes in.
"Victory is the placewhere our breaking pointbecomes our turning point."
— L. Burt
