See the Light

learn to adapt

Everyone is different and we of course have many similarities in that we are all human beings but also many acute differences making us individuals. This world and we who inhabit it were not meant to be perfect or live in such a tumultuous plane of existence in blissful harmony!  You mention adversity and to me that is the key to our being here, to meet any and all challenges with tenacity and determination to see what we can do with what is before us, to never quit or give into the great lack or imperfections that infect this world. Many unfortunately it appears give into circumstance or that lack of this or that while others say no way I won’t accept this and fight to change whatever they can or at least in the process themselves, hopefully for the better!

My wonderful father told me something once when I was a very young teen, he said, “Lawrence my son in this world a person has to come to realize that it comes down to adaptability!” He added, “That you have to learn to adapt to whatever comes your way in life and accept and make the best of things, because you’re not going to change the world.” Very wise I realized in time that my father had this objective wisdom that he imparted to me, as I would later recognize we are all “individual works of ART” and no telling what each will be in the final analysis, or until the fat lady sings!  Each of us have multitudes of decisions or moments in the finite plane of material living and each one alters the path we are on whether ever so slightly or dramatically; each one leads to the remaining moments of the rest of our lives and no telling how it will all sift out!   I could have been a shit heel almost all the way to the finish line cheating others and more importantly cheating myself, but perhaps before it’s over see “the light” that God has put in this world for all to realize which is of a Divine nature and infinitely wiser than any of the wisest among us; telling me that this must be the ticket, to be “divinely inspired” is a sure bet to accomplishing our own “individual mission” which is all in the “hands of God ,” not us or any conceptualization one can ponder, let go and with “humility” say I’m yours Lord to mold and shape as “You will.”

Just like the criminal on the right side of Jesus at Calvary being crucified for his crimes he saw the light before it was too late and the other criminal to His left denied the LIGHT causing his eyes to be plucked out!

We have FREE WILL to change Course and Consequence every single second of our lives!  Plenty of opportunity to answer God; before He either embraces us or let’s go!

It’s not about formulas, programs or cookie cutter patterns to follow for success.

“God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change…the Courage to change the things I can…and the Wisdom to know the difference.”

  1. Awesome message in this post. Lawrence has shared a deeply moving message about God’s love for each of us and our choices in life enabled by God’s light. If we want to reap plenty we must chose to sow plenty. Thank you my Brother in Jesus name.

    1. Dear Rev. Frank Taylor, thank you so very much for your acknowledgement and wonderful insight! Your comment means so much to me because recently I had a sort of epiphany that time ticks by too fast and none us knows when our individual clock will run out of ticks! Then I asked myself what is most important to me from what I’ve learned in my lifetime; there are many things I could talk about and many folks know I’m a talker, but to nail it I’d have to say what a very close relative told me a short time before passing on; he said with genuine faith and conviction that makes me cry even now to remember those powerful words, “We are here to love and serve God!” And that is what made me think recently about how can I do more to make the absolute best of whatever time I have left on this earth, and I knew it would have to be trying to make a difference in some most needed way that I can involve myself into and be a servant of God’s to my best ability! Writing has always been something that came easy for me and I love trying to put my feelings or thoughts into words that communicate well with others and hopefully in the process share something that might help them in even a tiny way. Then I saw all of the radical developments within the abortion industry by such atrocious legislation being passed and how I should try to help the Pro-Life cause and so I have begun to seek ways to help the word get out to others, how we as human beings and children of God must all seek God’s will for us and do the most we can to be helpful in this stressed out weary and even chaotic world; and as I see it, Pro-Life is a great place to start as without the sanctity of life and respect due it, we will stumble and fall into many more social ills, pitfalls and quagmires of doom as we are already witnessing all around!
      Rev. Frank your comment is so beautiful how it dovetails perfectly with my mind-set and heart lately in that, it is the “Golden Message” and “Golden Opportunity” for all of us to take to heart those prophetic words you shared! We need to think and pray to God each day on how we can “serve HIM” and “SOW” as much of the “good seeds” to be harvested when God so chooses; but more importantly for each of us we will either gain or lose what we can Reap, which is truly all dependent on what we seek to know about God’s will for each of us, and how to SOW it!
      God’s Blessings to You and Yours Rev. Frank Taylor!
      Your Brother in Christ Jesus,
      Lawrence Morra
