I hate what fear does to people. And at the same time I know it plays a part in this gig we find ourselves in. It's suppose to be the beginning of wisdom. But we must remember that fear is not actually what produces the wisdom, it's what pushes us to Wisdom himself and in this process we come to know that there is nothing to fear. When that happens in an individuals life fear is replaced with trust and love. The lack of this expression in this nation I live is what saddens me and leaves me longing for something else.
I grew up in the religious system in America that uses the name of Jesus but many years ago came to the conclusion that something was terribly wrong. The path I have been on for the past 20 years since I walked out of that familiar religious system has taught me that if fear doesn't lead to wisdom it leaves people in an even worse condition....people using God's name for their own gain at the expense of everyone else. This couldn't be anymore opposite of the message of the gospel.
The day I long for is the day when this earth is filled with an expression of sacrificial love coming from the people that claim Jesus as their Lord. That won't happen as long as people remain trapped in their fears. It just won't.
I don’t know where this is going
I’m taking a ride on a wing and a prayer
Follow me there
We’ll both be surprised
