How do we get ready? What about we just put on our dancing shoes for some action today? I did this recently and traveled back into my childhood days. What was I looking for? America the beautiful. The home of the brave. The nation God shed his grace upon from sea to shining shore.
I decided we might be lost. Even so, do you still want to go with me? We may just need a traveling map. Why? To move, to act, to become a child again. Why? Could be to move from bad days to good days; from wringing our hands to clapping our hands. One requirement is to put a smile on your face. Don't feel like smiling. Then let's just fake it 'till we make it.
Did I hear you ask, "Just who is on this action filled journey and where are they going?" We'll, let's first come to terms with the fact it involves playful minds for serious intervention. We may have to get together on this adventure and shut some doors. We need to remember to travel back into our childhood days.
Confession time is necessary to get cranked up for the journey, too. We will have to admit we will find a lot of "bad" out there. We then need to stop hiding. Stop pretending. Stop whining. Now. Right now. These are the directions. Our map comes directly from our child-hood days. "On your mark. Get set. Go
"One- two...Buckle my Shoe." Buckle up and keep moving until we find this land. Seemingly a lot of people today are using the tactics of terrorism, politics, race, gender equality to cause us to lose our focus and our way to "One Nation under God, with liberty and justice for all." That's the Land of Liberty and Home of the Brave located in the United States of America.
"Three-four...Shut the Door." That means as a nation we may have used the map and opened some doors needing to be remained closed. Could be the doors labeled....How to Please Everybody. How to be Politically Correct. How to Remove all Christian Values.
"Five-Six...Pick up Sticks." Yes, as a nation so many want to visit, we need to stay in the people picking up business. Let's don't forget to lend a hand in a way so others will be equipped to stop looking for hand-outs as a solution for their problems.
"Seven- Eight...Lay them Straight." When we look around we will find a lot of folks on crooked roads. The question is where do we find the straight roads? Getting on with this journey will take a mixture of work and prayer, give and take, pride and humility.
"Nine -Ten...Big Fat Hen." And not a skinny rooster parading around for others to admire. But if we the people of our nation stand strong. Stand strong enough and become more than willing to start putting some good on the lives of the people of our nation and other nations...then we might could hear and experience"Peace on earth; good will to all men."
Seems to, me on this journey I am learning a valuable lesson. That which is valuable is worth putting on your dancing shoes and meeting up with others on the way to travel from sea to shining sea.
Why? Because God has shared His grace on us and crowned our good with brotherhood from sea to shining shore." Now...Put your hands together.
Why? Because..." God loves the little children of the world. Red and yellow. Black and white. They are precious in His sight." That is one action adventure I don't want to miss...being part of on the greatest packed adventure of all times.
