THE DARK SIDE, BEWARE!

THE DARK SIDE, BEWARE!

OH, NOT TO WORRY, I DON’T HAVE A DARK SIDE!

REALLY? I’LL JUST BET YOU DO!

NO, INDEED I DO NOT!

BET’CHA!

RECENTLY I POSTED A BLOG ABOUT THE DEVIL! YES, THE DEVIL WEARS MANY HATS AND PLAYS MANY GAMES!

SO WE MIGHT JUST SAY THAT THE DEVIL IS THE DARK SIDE. THE OPPOSITE MIGHT BE CALLED THE LIGHT SIDE OR THE GOOD SIDE. NOW IS THERE A LINE RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE? CAN WE STEP OVER OR UNDER AND JUMP RIGHT BACK?

THERE ARE TIMES IN OUR LIVES WHEN WE SAY, “THERE BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD, GO I!” YES , WE EITHER ACTUALLY STEPPED OVER THE LINE INTO THE DARK AND JUMPED RIGHT BACK, WE DIDN’T GET CAUGHT, OR HAD TIME TO THINK IT THROUGH AND MADE A DECISION NOT TO TAKE A CHANCE. WE JUST STAYED WHERE WE WERE!

WHAT IF IN ANOTHER CASE WE ARE PUSHED, DRAGGED, OR TRICKED INTO STEPPING OVER THE LINE? WHAT THEN?

CASE IN POINT: SOMEONE WE KNOW, LOVE, TRUST, DEPEND ON, BELIEVE IN KNOWS JUST HOW TO PUSH OUR BUTTONS AND WE CHANGE FROM THE GOOD PERSON WE ARE INTO A DARK PERSON WHO SCREAMS, CURSES, THROWS PUNCHES, IN OTHERS WORDS, ACTS JUST LIKE THE DEVIL. WHEN MY MOTHER WAS REALLY SICK THE LAST TWO YEARS OF HER LIFE, SHE BECAME SOMEONE I DIDN’T KNOW!!!!! ON PURPOSE SHE GOADED ME, PUSHED ME TO THE LINE AND THEN PUSHED ME OVER IT! I BECAME SOMEONE I DIDN’T KNOW! WAS THIS THE TRUE ME? WAS THIS THE TRUE HER?

HOW COULD TWO PEOPLE WHO WERE BOUND BY BLOOD ACT SO UNLIKE THE TRUE HUMAN BEINGS WE WERE? WHERE DID THE DARK SIDE COME FROM?

THOUGHT: OLD AGE, DISEASE, LACK OF REST, TOTAL OVERLOAD OF LIFE. THESE THINGS BREAK DOWN OUR RESISTENSE TO HOLDING OFF THE DARK SIDE OF US.

JUST BECAUSE WE STEP OVER THE LINE AND BRIEFLY ACT OUT OF CHARACTER OR ACT LIKE A DEVIL DOESN’T MEAN THAT WE ARE CONDEMNED TO FOREVER BE AN ANGEL OF THE DARK!!

BY GRACE WE ARE SAVED AND FORGIVEN!

BE AWARE THAT VERY FEW PEOPLE WHO HAVE WALKED THIS EARTH HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY ON THE SIDE OF THE LIGHT! TO SAY THAT THE DARK SIDE OF US IS NOT THERE WOULD BE A GRAVE MISTAKE (PUN INTENDED!) WE WANT TO LIVE AND STAY ON THE LIGHT SIDE ALL OF TIME, BUT IF WE MISSTEP AND MAKE A MISTAKE AND WEAR THE CLOAK OF DARKNESS FOR A WHILE…………..NO ONE CAN KEEP US THERE! SAY NO, TURN AROUND AND GO RIGHT BACK TO THE LIGHT….WHERE HAPPINESS LIVES!
