What One Word Describes our Life; The One We See In Your Mirror?

What One Word Describes our Life; The One We See In Your Mirror?

When it is just you, alone, with just your thoughts late at night, can we be honest even then? When we have no one to lie to, no one to impress, do we even know what the truth about our own self is? When we blend in all of the really good things that we did in our past life (time up to this point) along with all of the ignorant and cruel things that we did (even if our ignorance is our defense), how does the picture look to us when it (our life) is all shaken out? This blog is really about conversation, I want the few folks who do read this blog to think and to look inside ourselves and think about the really cool or nice things that we did but also the really shameful things that we allowed ourselves to do, the sins we have done that are unspeakable. I try to get folks to look at these issues when it is just you, yourself, and your mirror (and hopefully private prayer time with Jesus). Personally I very much hope that your one word was better than mine. Why would I say that? The answer is simple folks, because so often my ‘word’ is shameful. It is shameful because I know in my heart that most days I function on ‘cruse control’, literally everyday of my life I know in my heart that I could have done better, more ‘good’ if I had just tried harder. My wife and son tell me that I am to hard on myself, yet I wonder if that is what Jesus will say at my judgement.

(Philosophy/Poem) The Destiny Of All Men

The Destiny Of All Men

 

Is there such a thing as a truly just man or a faithful woman
Do not the good deeds like the evil ones return to the dust
Why is the heart of a man so hasty to taste the agony of anger
Are not the bonds to a bitter woman worse than bands of death
Are not the trials of the living poor better than the grave of a King

For all things know that there will be a day where all taste of death
Eat your bread and drink your wine with thankfulness in your heart
The Lord accepts the works of the poor who toil with thankfulness
If the Rich slight the poor in their wages, Hell surely awaits them
For the Rich only eat because of the sweat on the poor mans back

Enjoy the days of your youth while you are still blessed to have them
Wisdom in one’s child is like fine wine upon the pallet of their parents
Fear God, keep His commandments for this is the light for all mankind
Nothing we do is a secret for God’s judgment is upon all of our works
We came from the dust, so don’t be fooled for we shall all return to it
