Is it because they have chosen a wrongful context? A dangerous context whose bottom is not bedded with the principles of honesty, integrity, shared values, transparency, humbleness, uncompromised ethics and principality. A context that should lead with love, refusal to harm, protection, security, intimacy, caring, peace of mind, truth, and stately convictions. Instead we take shelter under the skirted decency of others, gleaming from their goodness and patience. Blinded to the resentment our actions have caused.
We choose phony. We choose sneaky. We choose deception. We choose unhealthy dark places with little light. We placate our weakness within ever self-adjusting to our new normal. We won't stand strong unyielding to the temptation behind the next fix. We are addicted to sin and yet convince ourselves we are not. We visit places and participate in conversations where we would not invite GOD. Yet we sleep soundly, or do we? And if we don't, then why don't we awake to a new beginning? What is more important than those we live for? What out there draws us into a pit of destruction. Is it weakness? Or is it who we really are, we just have not owned it out loud quite yet. Instead we will wait to be outed through karma. Shown for who we really are in the light.
Perhaps our healing will be served by circumstances we did not invite but have no choice but to address. Our final dignity and respect will depend on an open confrontation. Our context it appears may come calling at the most inopportune time. How we choose to embrace it is yet to be seen. Only the borrowed time we have left will tell.
These words aren't meant to harm but meant to begin in your healing.
James 1:22-25 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
