When its 4 am in the morning and I am the only one awake and I ask myself what am I doing this for?
I think to myself the scripture in Proverbs 24: 30-34. "A little sleep a little slumber a little folding of the hands
to sleep so your poverty will come as a robber and your want as an armed man.
I've used that scripture for as long as I can remember to stay on the job and do what I dont want to do
So I can pay my bills and take care of my family.
I followed that verse so long that everything I have has turned to gold.
I have to exchange some of my gold, throw it in the street for a loaf of bread.
When I see all the insanity around me when the judge lets a man who uses a gun to rob someone go home
and sends another man to jail for taking a bicycle he finds laying in a ditch, I bite my tounge and think of I john 5:19 "We know we are
children of God but the world lies under the power of the wicked one"
When I live in the midst of evil, corruption , incompetance sometimes the only way I can maintain a touch of
sanity is to reflect on scripture.
I do see the bible is used by both sides good and evil, God and the devil.
the rulers and the peons. Everyone takes something from it and uses it to try and get what they
want, thats life.
