Standing with the Saints… to Kick Someone’s Face In

Nursing the bruises, listening to the stories, and reading another blogger detail my own sinful sentiments; seems we really are a desperate lot for grace.

6ITP6Titled, “Today I Wanted to Forget About Jesus and Kick Someone’s Face In,” JS Park carries his readers through a day in the life, a day of expressed failure, a day much like those in my recent past. It is those days that bring more questions than answers, more anger than solace, more me and less Jesus.

I can, in no way, express thoughts any better than Mr. Park has. Although minus the black belts and Asian influence, his and my walk seem to have traversed similar paths of contention far from yore, so if you’ve not read his work, I invite you to spend a couple moments embracing reality in the raw… we just ain’t there yet, are we?

    I am so glad that the title you wrote says “Standing With The Saints” first! SAINTS! This is our name. This is our hope. As a child of The Lord we are not trying to become saints…we ARE saints…who are becoming more like Jesus. Great big sigh of relief!!! And in that phrase “Standing With The Saints” I find my greatest help because…God is working in me both to will…and to do…His good pleasure. I will never more a saint than I am right now! I am standing!!!!!!! And have all the resources to be what God calls me. And His grace is enabling and sufficient. Wa-hooooooo!!!! I don’t have to leave a trail of bloodshed and broken parts. 😉

    Well,” Momma, told me there would be days like this, days like this,” I have felt like that, but declined to act on it. Luther said about sinful thoughts, ” You can’t keep birds from flying over your head, but you can keep them from nesting in your hair!”
