#228 – Rise, take up thy bed
Worry or worship, it is your choice. You can raise your hands in surrender, to the process or surrender to death and defeat. The differences between hopelessness and helplessness are in your mind and are a matter of faith.
What you except as the truth, becomes your truth, though it be a lie. When a lie becomes the measure you live by, it is like building a house on sand. The edifice is built on nothing.
Your value systems are moved by the wind, the rain and the storms. Nothing is secure, because each storm changes you. You are living from storm to storm, from lie to lie and from calamity to calamity.
Take up thy bed and walk, play cripple no longer. You are strong and very capable, stop living under a lie. You are powerful and have many talents, gifts and abilities. Stand up straight and start showing the world, how greatly, I have made you.
“The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.”
