“If only more of today’s military personnel
would realize that they are being used by the
owning elite’s as a publicly subsidized capitalist goon squad.” Smedly Butler
Not only has He reAD your story… is He wrote it.
His perspective is different, His purpose is clear;
God uses struggles to toughen our spiritual skin.
arrive at our every side., you know that under a
force beyond our control out faith-life is forced
into the open so all aware people take notice
as to how deep those true colors run inside
one’s being. We caution most to not try to
escape circumstance prematurely. Let it
do it’s work so we can become mature
and well-developed, no deficiency in
any way, shape or form. James 1:2
The craftsman places an ingot of
silver on an anvil and pounds with
a sledgehammer. Once the metal is
flat enough for shaping, in a furnace it
goes. The worker alternately heats and
pounds the metal until it takes the shape
of a tool he can use. Heating, pounding.
Heating, pounding. Dead-lines, traffic.
Arguments, disrespect. Loud sirens,
silent-phones. Heating, pounding. Heating, pounding.
silence, phones. Heating, pounding. Heating, pounding.
Did you know that the smith in silversmith comes from the
old english word smite? Silversmiths: accomplished smiters.
So is God. Once a worker is satisfied with the form of his tool,
he begins to palings and pumice it. Using smaller hammer and
abrasive pads, he taps, he rubs and decorates. No one stops him.
No one yanks the hammer out of his hands and says, “Go easy on
that silver. You’ve pounded enough!” No, the craftsman buffets the
molecules of metal until He is finished with it. With some silversmiths,
I’m told, keep polishing until they can see their face in the tool they are
making. When will God stop on you? When He sees His reflection in you.
