Conundrum And Irony

It is important to know your WHY.

My life is so full of conundrums and irony.
Now more than ever.
Why, Lord, Why?

What shall I do, Lord?


Walk in the Light.

Stay in the beam of positive vibrations.

Keep to the narrow path.


Do not run away from the beast or it will chase you.

Confront evil.

Prepare the catapult and be ready with a calm heart.

Aim. Focus. Shoot. Relax.

Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

Keep walking.

Sit down and rest. Stand up. Take another step.

Why is my life so full of irony, condundrums and so much irregularity to deal with, Lord?

Why God?

Why are even the simple, basic, ‘given’ things now even more weird?

What will You do today, Lord?

In Jesus’ Name.
I pray for calm.

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
From whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord
Who made Heaven and Earth.”


I know my WHY,
But I do not know WHY all the other stuff.

It is important to have the WHY sorted
For peace to reign.

Amen again.
