What Mickiel is obviously alluding to regarding my words, is not where my heart is at. At all.
I hope that you see this.
I've had these same ideas and thoughts written over my posts in red ink before.
Just red ink all over that does not belong and does not FIT what I am truly saying.
I have no desire to engage in fruitlessness such as this.
It's all right..
One day we will truly be great friends and play checkers, Mickiel..
But for now, we're just having a little breakdown in communication it seems.
I suppose I can understand why you see what you do in my words...
but there is nothing I can say or do to make you see it the way it is intended.
It's a perspective thing... that's all.
Well I assure you that I hold no intention of blotting out what you have said in red ink, your thoughts are more common than mine. And I am not argueing a point, I am simply expressing my views as you are, and enjoying the freedom to do so. When someone feels they have lost direction in Life, that can be a very important crossroad for them, and often is the very entrance to them finding the Truth. That is more important than how you or I feel. What was lost and feeling downhearted, now is on the verge of being found, which is a cause to rejoice.
I quess where me and you differ, is that when you run accross such a person, you feel their pain and want to lead them to lay down and rest, and I understand that, espically if thats how you handled it yourself. I didnot handle it like that, and still don't to this day. Nor do I encourage such an approach. If you have lost your direction, then find it. Get up off of your depression and do something about it. And God will help you to do something. I see then two contrasting views to how to handle loosing your direction in Life, One, Rest in Christ; or secondly, do something in Christ. I choose the latter, and pray God finds me doing as such when he returns. A doer of his words, not resting on them.
