It’s Alright

I’ve actually blogged about this song before.  My plan is to sing this tomorrow for my church.  It’s one of those songs that reminds me to not freak out, stress or go crazy about any situation, because it really is going to be OK.  Thank You Jesus!

We all have that person in our lives that says that to you.  You may have more than one person that does it for ya.  My biggest OK man was my dad.  He was my cheerleader.  He was the one I went to with any question at all.  When he answered me, it made perfect sense.  He could always comfort me.  He was a voice of reason.  He would just say, “It’s going to be ok.” and I was *thumbs up*!

This song reminds me that I still have people like that in my life.  God has put people in my life to remind me that no matter what, it’s going to be ok.  I can call or text my people in times of craziness and they are ready to give me a word, shoot me the perfect emoji or most better yet, send me a Bible verse and pray for me.

I take comfort most of all in God’s word.  God truly tells us in the Bible that it is going to be OK.  It is going to be ALRIGHT.  We win.  We overcome!  He sent His son to overcome so we can too.

I can go through times of sorrow, times of confusion, times that I want to hurt someone because they are crazy, times that anger me or cause me to doubt myself, BUT with God and His gift of mercy and grace,

IT’S ALRIGHT!

PERSPECTIVE

I have so many blogs that are labeled or just about perspective.  I try not to use the same title, but I had to on this one.   

To me, that is the #1 thing that MAKES a circumstance or situation. It’s how you look at it. 

Today, at the last general session of the leadership conference I was blessed to take 21 students to, our speaker was all about perspective. 

Make sad happy–
By giving and not taking
By helping others
And doing all you can to make a change.
Don’t think you can’t, believe you CAN.

You are not who you are because of what you look like.
(AMEN!)
True leaders don’t judge others who don’t make the cut.
It’s not about me, it’s about what I’m honored and blessed to give you.
Your life is limitless.

Attitude is not a cliche.
It’s powerful.
-Alvin Law

This guy was a motivational speaker, but as he said, he wasn’t there to give us motivation, he wanted to give us
PERSPECTIVE.
He gave it to us by the example he lives. He gave it to us by his actions. He was born with no arms and instead of looking at that as a disability …he said it was just a little struggle or difficulty.  To overcome those –no matter what they are—we must work.
This is so true! We all have our hang ups whether physical or mental and we have to WORK, put effort to it to make it past them.  It doesn’t happen overnight or in one day. It happens because we make our attitude a habit. Attitude truly is power.  PERSPECTIVE is what drives our attitude or visa versa. To me, they are one in the same.
Here’s a little clip I found on YouTube featuring this speaker–

SUPER HERO

SUPER HERO.
((Extraordinary or superhuman –also, an exceptionally skillful or successful person.))

We love watching SUPER HERO SHOWS. This week, my kids and I watched The Avengers. I know, we are way behind on our movie watching. It’s an “old” movie now especially with IRON MAN 3 coming out just yesterday. Anyway, the movie had great effects and it was a neat story of good overcoming evil. We have a few favorite parts like any movie we watch together. One of the parts was when the Hulk took the evil guy pretty much by his feet and threw him around like a rag doll. It was a little comical and totally surreal, of course, but still one of the highlights of the movie. We like it, I believe, mostly because, it was a scene where the good (altho a huge green monster) Hulk was basically putting the bad guy in his place–literally. We love it when GOOD OVERCOMES EVIL!

Sometimes I wish there were no evil to overcome at all, but I know that no matter what, it’s inevitable. I do not claim to be a realist EVER, but deep down, I know what “real” is. We have real things that come on us. It may not be as crazy wicked and evil as some alien self-proclaimed god like in the movie we watched, but at times, it seems pretty close. We have things like disloyal friends, rebellious children, mean bosses, forks in the road, sickness, illness, and the list goes on and on. We are surrounded by gossips, murders and basic spawns of the devil himself. I’m just saying, we come up against evil all the time. The devil gets in and stirs his pot of nasty in our daily lives.

My post today is mostly a proclamation of how we can overcome evil much better if we have a SUPER HERO on our side. I’m not talking about the big green guy although if you could keep him from destroying your house, that would be pretty cool. I’m talking about the ONE TRUE SUPER HERO who no matter what happens, is there to win your battles. He’s there to calm you and give you the peace that surpasses any peace we will ever find in this world. He knows what you are going through whether it be small, medium, large or those -on occasion- SUPER SIZE moments of despair. HE ALWAYS HAS THE VICTORY! You cannot find true victories and keep victory in your possession without Him. Sure, you can feel happiness or peace to some extent, but without this SUPER HERO in your heart, you cannot feel it to it’s most largest and fullest extent. How can you know how true peace is? –ONLY with this SUPER HERO…

SUPER

Yes, it is true, JESUS doesn’t have a cape on with a big S on the front of His chest. This picture probably doesn’t even represent Him in His true physical appearance. We all have our mental imagine of Him. I kind of picture Him as The Hulk with longer hair, not so green and definitely MUCH less angry. haha! You picture Him as you will…but KNOW FOR SURE, without this SUPER HERO–you will never OVERCOME this world!
