Excellent overview of the honest to goodness situation in real time!
“I’m lost on the battlefield, shooting and running, unable to clearly see my Commander in the chaos. And man is it chaos!”
What I believe you’re feeling is utter disappointment and perhaps some disgust and rightly so in first the human race in general and then in the actual purpose or reason for humanity when there is so much insanity in it! All of that doesn’t quite add up to being human at all. I’ve often said straight out lately and never did I ever feel this way or say this; but I’m ashamed to be a part of the human race so full of rottenness and debauchery afoot everywhere we turn these days! I just wrote yesterday that evil and Satan himself has a firm grip on mankind as it now attempts to crush and destroy all that is good or what’s left of good in this sick twisted world. This is just reality that you are seeing and projecting yourself into as you are now struggling like those poor fish in their final throws gasping for a bit of fresh air because the once plentiful good oxygen that was so abundant or accessible is disappearing! Of course you and I along with many if not all Christians have to begin to wonder what’s going on Jesus, are you going to allow us all to sink into all of this mire and confusion or lack!
We do need to realize that we are living in the most difficult of times so the faint of heart and those that scare easily will fall by the wayside while those left standing intact will have one heck of a job on their hands being steadfast and trusting totally in the Lord!
“….yeah, I’m pretty spent. And feeling a lot like my floating fish, gasping for air.”
Boy did you say a mouthful there Sister! This is an extremely important point and I must tell you I felt that way over the last 15 years a few times but the most just recently as the attacks come from all directions even on this social media networking where first of all we are in a very uncertain form of communication with strangers and who can say what these people are really all about or what their intentions toward us individually really are from moment to moment; too many variables to contend with as I began to see it lately with backstabbing and malicious intent directed at me by others whom I never did nor would I intentionally do so to them; but people can be so selfish and crass!
You brought up Battlefield and that is how it is at times here even in the personalized media outlets where it’s a landscape of mental battles at times just adding to the backdrop of chaos all around us in the world at large where deceptions run rampant and are getting more deadly all the time. But let me say that over these last 15 years when I literally had to fight for my life on multiple fronts against powers far exceeding my training, familiarity or pocket book I got so stressed out and tired of fighting the world it seemed even in court battles that I had to take on by myself while ill because nobody cared or would lift a finger for me to help unless maybe I would have begged or paid; that is how selfish a world we can be in at times now! But somewhat toasted I came out in control of my own circumstances due to Jesus never letting me go down the chute and He provided the inspiration along with my tenacious determination to fight off my foes to actually make it through many battles and along the way He made sure I had a few key allies on a professional level that came along because God put them there to help save me! A beautiful human being a medical doctor that I needed to succeed came into the look from the get goes which made a world of difference and without which the enemy would have been in a position to slam dunk me merrily as they some of these bad seeds running loose love nothing more than to crush the good guys like us! This is only one example but there are many that I could point to as junctures when God absolutely delivered me from the hardship, misery and impending doom to a better day; not heaven yet but a huge incentive which told me never give up; the promise is real and will be fulfilled.
I had a very emotional moment with one of my literal sisters during a long discussion who said today I’m in a rut, and I told her if you and most people you know had been through what I’ve had to bust my behind dealing with over and over while being my own lawyer and best buddy other than my dogs that give so much love on their level; you wouldn’t dare say that to me because then you would know that many people would have given up or died of a heart attack! We are in the battle of our lives now all of us and some are going to fail; we are required to be tenacious and willing to take it all the way to the finish line and never quit! I don’t actually know you and pretty much everyone on this Blog Site but I tell you all that if you say you believe in Jesus and are trusting in him you better mean it and not just be talking out of your butt! That means sure we have bad moments and slip or can’t be in our best form but the commitment to Him alone must be real, genuine and totally determined to allow Him to lead each of us on our own individual paths to heaven! It’s hard road ahead and it will be full of deceptions as well as fierce evils doing great harm but eternity waits down the road so we want that to be eternal life with God our Father in Heaven no if’s and’s or but’s; so that is all I will accept and will do what the Father directs me to do along the way!
“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.” (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

Lately, it seems like everyone is being attacked. The world and, more specifically, the church is being shaken down to its core, it’s foundation. People are being forced into taking a side and standing firm in their decisions. Evil is rampant and no longer concealed within the confines of the shadows.
The deepest, darkest fears, sins, spiritual failings, and doubts are floating to the surface.
Quite honestly, I’m tired of the endless trials that I’m being bombarded with from within and without. When will the shaking cease and the dust finally settle? What will happen next before it does?
As I’m typing this, I can see my dying fish floating to the top of its tank after I painstakingly tried to save it from ick only a few days ago. Sadly, a few other fish are also acting odd and I don’t know what or if I can do anything…
