We are going to revisit some past points of view. In stead of reposting them, I am simply going to pull out a couple of nuggets from each. We can blend them nicely into all this and discuss them next week.

I want us to visualize something now: Picture an arena, with the crowds all around cheering about something. Now observe that their focus is on you in the center of something which appears to be a coliseum. There is a bull facing you, and believe it or not you are a matador! You are thinking through all your experiences when attempting this combat previously and making a plan. Right now the bull is doing the same, you can see it in its eyes. Suddenly, the bull is charging and you start moving .....flailing really. In terror you grab onto this massive animals horns and jump to the side.
The fierce bull snorts, shakes, bucks but you are still holding strong. At this point you are simply grateful to still have the bull by the horns and not being down in the dirt trampled beyond recognition.
How many times are the thoughts we are wrestling with like that bull. Revisit our conversations about keeping your peace and entering the coliseum today. Who needs to have a bull by the horns anyway. What do you have to prove to the crowds? We know that the bull might allow us to "think" we are in control and at the reigns in this position. However, when push comes to show.....the bull always has us and not the other way around.
May God bless you and keep each and every one of you today in His peace which surpasses all understanding. Ponder Proverbs 23:4 Don't wear yourself out trying to get rich. Be wise enough to know when to quit. Sometimes we are the bull, thank God He won't throw us to the ground. I also thank God that even when I am being the bull He will never leave me or forsake me. He is VERY skilled as the righteous matador!
