The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.
Ok I know I have been a bit of a whiner lately.
have had a friend who was awesome.
But here is the thing. Her husband is weird. And the church they attend is weird.
And since they got married on ’09 things have been weird.
All that talk about how people who have faith are not bothered by wujo (unless they invite it around (in which case one wonders about the type of faith they have – right?))
I admit there were plenty of times when I was way WAY out there.
But I ain’t got nothing on my friend Marie here. Her younger sister (let’s call her Lisa) and two grade school children were in trouble, so they asked if they could stay at Marie’s place and help out or what ever – at first the answer was no, but surprise (!) the husband changed his mind and said sure…all of a sudden. weird.
then he goes to this holy roller retreat and it is revealed that Lisa and her children need to get out because evil spirits have attached themselves to her and that is why the teenage son (Joe) of my friend is rebellious, and also why they have so many flies in their house – because they are attracted to the evil..
I am beyond, way the hell beyond – trying to figure this out. I am a little angry. Mostly because I see how this affected the young people involved and I think it is not very nice to do that to your kids.
Which brings me back to my main point -ok? right now I am feeling a bit tested and vexed – a lot of people are – it is not wujo – it is natural growing. Train for a race – get sore, capiche? no one gets sore because of evil spirits – they get sore because they are working harder than ususal and developing muscles.
Or because they are not too bright and do more than they are ready for too soon.
Or like Marie and her household they think they are being super spiritual and they are being super boneheads. So in the spirit of the season I tried to call, I left messages and I am at the point now where the Lord told me to let it go – he would take care of it. This person is not in a listening place.
But this season is about looking at your life and seeing your shortcomings and why are you being stretched in the ways you are.
Not about earning your place, not about pointing out flaws in other people. It is about seeing where you are lacking – where your weight is revealed -TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting;
And when you find the areas that cry for improvement you do your best to fix it, not because you need to in order to be loved or worthy – but because that is the best direction for your life! When you are faithful over the littles you can be trusted more. You can help more. The more responsiblility you show, the more you get. Still, it is not fun to be on the sidelines in this event.
