|You cannot stand in the ticket line at the train station forever trying to decide where your destination will be and which train to take to get there. Sooner or later you have to make a decision and get aboard one train or another. As the old adage says, “Time and tide wait for no man”, and so if you are not careful, you will find yourself standing at the station long after the train that you needed has departed, leaving you to wonder yet again, “Where do I go from here?” ~ Keith Lionel Brown|
For far too long some of us have listened intently to the voices of all the naysayers and ne’er-do-wells of the world who have not only tried, but in many cases have succeeded, in thoroughly convincing us that we are just a bunch of worthless nobodies, going nowhere. They have convinced some of us that what might have once been is the way that things will always be. And so, feeling all alone, rejected, depressed, and defeated some of us have chosen to live a life of seclusion and to slowly drown in a sea of deafening silence.
The hour has now come when we must arise from the ashes of life, lift up our heads, and raise our voices to let the bearers of negativism know that they are nothing more than perpetual liars. Now is the hour to serve them notice that although they may think or believe that they represent the majority voice, they are indeed the minority whisper. Now is the hour to let them know that what might have once been, no longer has to be, nor will it be.
We need to pull ourselves up by the proverbial bootstraps and with clarion voices lift the rafters as we proclaim in jubilation, “Henceforth and no further!” Now is the time to rise up and send a very distinct, simple, and clear message to those who would otherwise try to keep us down and kick us around that we are not just a bunch of nobodies, going nowhere – we are children of Almighty God, and hence, we are somebody going somewhere.
We are not in this world to live in servitude to any man, or to bow down to any man as if he were our king. It is time, and indeed the hour has come, when we need to lift our voices together, like the three Hebrew children who were thrown into the fiery furnace, and unashamed and unequivocally declare that we have but one True Master – one True Lord – one True King – and it is He and He alone whom we will bow down to and worship and none other. It is He who has already determined our destination.
