Alright... Stop, collaborate and listen. Josh is back with a brand new edition. Something has ahold of me tightly...Caught ya!! You were singing it weren’t you. Anyway there is something that has ahold of me tightly and that I need to get it off my chest and let you guys chew on it for a while.
I know that I technically billed this blog as a sports themed blog, but as
it evolved it turned into a view of my life, as a panoramic view in the
nosebleed section. Being able to step back and really take a good look at what
is going on in my life. Good, bad or otherwise. Lately I have been stuck in my
own head, chewing on a lot of different ideas and thoughts. Some I have shared
some I keep for myself, but most of them have a common theme.
The last few nights I have been reading up and someone who is quickly
becoming my new favorite author. C. S. Lewis. I really want to explore Narnia
with my kids, and after their asleep I want to explore the dark recesses of my
soul with The Screwtape Letters.
If any of you have not read this book, it really makes you think. It is
about a Senor Demon taking his nephew on as an apprentice. I have only read
part of it and am working on it, but it gives you a good picture of what is
happening on a deeper and supernatural level. Being someone who has always been
interested in the supernatural it gives you a really good picture.
"He wants them to learn to walk and must therefore take away His hand;
and if only the will to walk is really there He is pleased even with their
stumbles. Do not be deceived, Wormwood. Our cause is never more in
danger, than when a human, no longer desiring, but intending, to do our Enemy’s
will, looks round upon a universe from which every trace of Him seems to have
vanished, and asks why he has been forsaken, and still obeys.”
This statement, which may seem harsh to some, is far from. It shows that
when you feel that God has left you to yourself, and kicked you to the curb but
you still do his will it causes fear and chaos among the ranks of demons. What
I know this post feels kind of different that my other post, but it is truly
something to think about. Step back and put the 3D goggles on and take a look
at what’s really happing on the field of your life. You have your game being
played, but as soon as you put the goggles on you get another game completely,
on one side you have the demons, trying to destroy you and on the other you
have the greatest QB that ever lived with his team of angles kicking the crap
out of the other team.
So if this post keeps you from reading my future posts than thanks for
reading so far, and I will miss your views, but I will not change what I
believe or am led to put on paper for anyone.
Thanks and I hope you enjoyed this edition of life in the Cheap Seats
