I have learned to look for the encouragement and exhortation of Christ Jesus to live the Way of Truth that is Life in any and all circumstances I encounter.
Examples of going eye to eye with what others deem a losing proposition; an exercise in futility; an irrational refusal to face facts; a behavior that will be an affront to those we seek to enlist; and an embarrassing display of supposed lone rangerism, nourish my soul and remind me that the impossible is possible and the truth will prevail in the in the long run in the face of cowardly behavior and selling one’s soul for the sake of approval which will wither and perish in the heat of true wisdom.
These people remind me that the right path may be the path that only one will take and in doing so incur the wrath of those who have sold out to business as usual for the sake of pretending to be something that they are not. I am inspired by those who have a fire in the belly that drives them to paddle against the Tsunami and live in harmony with their deepest convictions. In the face of such courageous displays of allegiance to the truth regardless of the cost I must repent to my own unwillingness to do the same within the realm of my struggles.
“…never give in, never give in, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” Winston Churchill
Bravo to the courageous few (or the one) who hold fast and take a stand for the truth and the way of truth in any and all facets of life.
