Ever had one of those days when it seems like the entire world and everything in it is conspiring to exclude, demoralize, and humiliate you?
Ever have one of those days when all people seem greedy, ugly, and very difficult, if not impossible, to love? And you are the worst of the bunch?
When awkwardness abounds?
When anger and jealousy take hold?
When you don’t understand why you’re living?
When the Bible seems uncertain and God distant?
When every pursuit seems tedious, vain, and painful? When there’s no one who will understand?
When you want to tough it out and cry it out at the same time? When you wish someone would notice that you’re not okay?
Never had a day like that?
Neither have I…
Well, at least golf is starting to make sense. At least I got to eat some noodles. At least the day is almost over.
You know what sounds good right now? Besides drowning the cares of the day with some kind of drug? To just lie in someone’s arms. Maybe Jesus’ arms. That sounds nice. Just like a helpless, thoughtless, little lamb. Warm, sleepy, peaceful, a lullaby being sung by angels.
“No more tears and no more fears.
No more pain and no more rain
Never be lonely never be sad
Never be angry never be bad
Just singing songs to God above
Peace joy love, peace joy love.”
It sounds nice when the angels sing it, if not in your head.
