The place where ash lays: Sleep

Blood drips, ash lays gently in the misted of a battle. The camera shifts revealing those who scamper away from horror trying to locate safety. Amongst this calamity some men fight while others emerge stunned and lost. I slump against my chair, watching the war story unfold. I am mystified.

Fleeing comrades I can sympathize with. Fight men, wow, I’m enthralled by their courage but the idiots who doing nothing? How inept are they? Wake up from your slumber be a man, be a woman, and progress beyond fear.

Choking on popcorn cornels . ….. The “do nothing soldiers” convict me. Asleep: never awakened to Gods depth, Afraid: pondering where he will lead... they are numb. Maintaining a relationship with God is more than love. It is determination.... past yellow brick roads and candy canes to the place where ash lays…..

God be real to me. Force me to fight…. to see you for who you are. Never allow me to forget the war that surrounds my world, the war that is within me. awaken those who sleep

Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.
