Get Going

In my head I can hear them say, "when the going gets tough, the tough get going" over and over again. What do you say when that doesn't work? Maybe a quote like, "excuses are the tools of the incompetent, those that use them seldom accomplish anything" resonates in the mind. Sometimes words such as, "under the bloodgenings of chance, my head is bloodied but unbowed...out of the night that covers me, black as a pit from pole to pole... I am the master of my fate, the captain of my soul" have stirring power too. Once in a while a sage being might recite "If" a poem by Rudyard Kipling, words of knowledge, of wisdom and human insight about the trials and jubilations of life. Ending with the confirmation "now you are man."

What do you do when you are between a rock and a hard place? Close your eyes and hope you don't get smashed? Pray for a miracle, the seemingly impossible occurance at last? Maybe you recite a verse well known. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for. The evidence of things unseen." Wishing anything works to deliver you, change the situation of your being.

All tools to inspire or encourage the soul within. Meant to provide faith when courage weighs thin. Many depend on them to make it through the circumstances that life presents, especially when things aren't going our way and hope seems distant.

Well I guess this is our fate. The lot we drew in life. We will overcome. Sustain the misery and strife. Keep our heads to the sky not pondering why. Time always reveals and provides the reasons why. So many questions I wish I had the answer to. Only God can judge and He always knows what is true. Put your faith in the fact that He loves you. Never giving you more than you can handle or get through. At the end of life make sure you hear Him say. "Well done my faithful servant. You did it My and not your way."
