I bet all the dumb things you were complaining about last year, you would take now. Or the things that irritated you back then – you would rather deal with now. You should take this-worldly climate as a lesson in appreciation; because as they say, “it could always be worse.”
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows….
2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
“Hang on to the world as it spins around Just don’t let the spin get you down Things are moving fast Hold on tight and you will last Keep your self-respect, your manly pride Get yourself in gear, keep your stride Never mind your fears Brighter days will soon be here….”
You can’t play both sides – that’s not how it works.
You’re that lukewarm water that drains in the dirt.
You’re that strained ego that always gets hurt.
You idolize evil and wonder why your prayers don’t work.
You can’t play both sides. That’s not how it works…
Revelation 3:15-17 (NIV)
“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.”
