You Have to be Bold With It and Know That You Know That You Know IT’S YOURS!
One of my favorite sacred passages that I refer to time and time again is in the Bible in Numbers 13:30.
Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.”
In the original text, the name Caleb means ‘dog’. Likely, he did not consider himself to be of the elite class, but he was a believer so all he had to stand on was his God. He was an adult of about age 40, who went with Joshua to spy out land they said their God had promised them. The land was filled with grapes, milk and honey, and the spies came back and reported the sons of Anak still lived there and the Annunaki descendants were giants.

Initially I titled this how to live in a violent society then I realized not a lot is going on in front of my physical eyes — it’s basically what is being shown in movies, on television and on most news channels. Sometimes you try to get everyone in your household on board with boycotting the news however it doesn’t always work. It pops up on your phone and in your apps — the bad news is always there; someone has done something to their parents, someone has done something to the police, the police has done something to someone, etc. It’s draining to say the least.
There comes a time in your life when you know exactly what to do next. Unfortunately, those times don’t happen often so many more times you trudge along for however long it takes until a new opportunity makes itself clear before making any new moves.
What is the Meaning of the Word Surrender? Start with the Prefix ‘Sur’.
This morning, it was impressed upon me to look more deeply into the word surrender.
The latin word ‘sur’ means above; over; or in addition to, like a surcharge is an amount paid in addition to the regular cost. It is related to the term ‘super’, which also means ‘beyond’ or ‘in addition to. Think of Superman and how his abilities surpassed that of mere mortals.
When you think of survival, you may think it means to live (vive) despite some obstacle that challenges your existence. It is to rise above or supercede circumstances that threaten life.
Always Rise Above Your Circumstances and See the Forest with Its Trees.
It’s important that you know where you are in life for if you become lost, you may not be able to see the reality of how things are. Keep a life compass in your hands and identify who and where you are at all times; only then will you know where you are going. Remember to breathe along the way.
