Dancing With the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol, et al… it’s most a popularity contest. I’m not diminishing or demeaning anyone’s talent or lack of, far from it. I’m only too familiar with thinking myself to be more talented, skilled, or liked than I am, only to have the prize go to someone else. Life, huh?
Now that I’m older, wiser, some might say “seasoned” or “veteran” of the whole life thing – I’m much more content to live with who I am. Because I know just like the “dark-web” there is an unseen world out there that is not about popularity at all. So I fight for the prize that will never tarnish. I struggle to win the battle that will last through eternity.
Not many will vote for me to win, some in fact will cheer my competitors, simply for the fact that they don’t want me to win. I get it.
Some will not like my message, they will seek to silence me.
I rest in the grace of the one who carries me daily through the rigorous struggle while I walk in the mire of this earthly clay.
I adopt the words of the Apostle Paul.
I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
