As a young man I have made allot of major mistakes, but all the while I was making them I thought I was being responsible, only to now realize I was being pitiful!
What it has made me realize is that many people, in life use things like love, faith, destiny, dedication, and loyalty to describe situations they should have avoided but do to fear and comfort they believe lies, told from others and told to themselves! Are you really suppose to have people to depend on in life? You know that best friend or family members, or did God create you to be completely self sufficient? I am not a “life long friendship/relationship” person whether it be family or friends, I really do speak my mind and do what works best for me and my household first, because as a man and a leader that’s my job! That is the type of responsible parents I had, and the type of mother I have! But I do wonder about the “sociability” aspect of life! How many times have you swallowed your pride or lied to yourself and supported an unhealthy relationship just to appease yourself, please a person or people you feel you couldn’t live without?
In life I believe as a Christian person that most people say they are they path to self righteousness and fulfillment is through the act and belief in having faith in GOD! All to often do we as humans place our life and our faith in other humans. Whether it be for work or it be for love and our own social standing I feel as if we are far taken into a realm of social acceptance that negates us from actually calling upon the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ hoping that our mothers, fathers, siblings and/or friends can save us! These types of behaviors and false witness are given to us and spoon fed to us through television and other means of entertainment whether it be books like “Huckleberry Finn” he had his trusty side kick, or movies like “Lean on Me” a classic buddies going through hell and high water together to form a life long bond! I think girls are hit with it early and often throughout their whole lives starting with “Barbie’ and ending in something like “Fried green Tomatoes” or any other various chick flicks. Men are more targeted off the combat fact say like the Civil Service cartoons and role models, being a solider having each others backs “G.I. JOE”, “Transformers”, ect… but it is done in a tough and more fundamentally first nature type of package deal most common is a sports setting!
Not too suggest that something is wrong with these types of settings and processes for which camaraderie and dependability skills and traits needed to survive the day and life in general are nurtured. But we tend to learn to depend on these skills and we move away from what Jesus said and from what we read in our bibles, and from our spiritual guidance counselor (clergy) harps on and repeats every Sunday, which is based on the biblical facts:
“Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” —Matthew 17:20
“Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” —Mark 11:22-26
There are several more just like these versus in the New Testament that allow you to not walk on egg shells, when you have a problem but better yet pray and depend on the Lord to deliver and come through clearing a path for any injustices and iniquities to be resolved on your behalf, in your favor! By faith, can only a person actually even believe in the Lord and Savior, because you can’t physically each out and touch him, see him, smell him, or metaphysically obtain any type of connection with him other than to say, YOU BELIEVE!
Tying this all back to the original point is that anytime you think that you can fix something or any one else can fix it for you, before you have polaced in God’s hands and allowed him to guide you, then yes you are being PITIFUL! But as you begin to recognize that the truths as stated int he bible and the words that Jesus spoke instructing you to fall and place all worries at his feet, then you are showing your responsibility and self worth and maturity by getting back to the basics and following what Jesus Christ has instructed us to do! Pray and pull out your Jesus cell phone and dial that faith number when you need some help, you will realize as you call that number more on a everyday basis, your emergency calls will be marginalized! Amen and Hallelujah!
