I woke up thinking of a friend who was discouraged working hard to sell a hard-to-sell hugely over-priced product. A way out is moving from sales to management, but that might mean pressuring others to meet targets to sell the same product.
Hard, this world’s system. It suck you dry, as we used to suck sugarcane, then spits you out.
Suck, swallow people’s life-force, spit them out when they are used up and dried out.
How much better to be in Christ. You still offer him everything you are and have, but are now in him, inside him, protected by him, and that is a very safe place to be.
I love Hannah Whitall Smith’s vision of a ring of light surrounding Christians, which will not part unless God purposes it to part.
And he will only purpose it to part for a good reason!
“Do you not think I can even now ask my Father, and he will send 12 legions of angels,” Jesus says in Gethsemane. The protection of 12 legions of angels!!
We are safe!
