People like to challenge you out of the depths of their own shallow depth, stealing breaths, and happiness from one moment to the next… Speaking life’s antithesis, as their own greatest witness, and generously serving you a platter of their unbelief with a glass full of unforgiveness… See, these are they who have dreamed, and became so enthralled with the invisibility of the unseen scene, that they cut it.  Got heated and changed teams.   Creating various logical sequences on their ambition’s delinquency, that they’ve changed frequency, and tell you that if you air something else you’re free falling into failure…

Ohhhhh but when you know.  See, a lot of people have a burn to believe in something greater and unconditionally loving, and then when you present the gift of Jesus Christ from God Himself, they act like it’s nothing… Ohhhh but when you KNOW!!  When things are so far beyond your control, that you no longer even LOOK for the remote.  When your lack is drowning you, outside the castle in the moat… Some people whither and others grow, and the ones that grow, KNOW.  Jesus is not just a passing statement or a religious icon.  Jesus is not just a character in a movie as the Light One.  He is not a myth that groups of people have designed in order to engineer happiness… No – my friend… No…

When you’re stuck in the dark of your confusion, and the light never comes on, but your feet find their way home?  And you encounter revelation, and the negativity is gone?  That’s Him.  When “some voice” tells you to back down, cool off, take another route, double check, say hi, duck, give a dollar, give a hug… That’s Him!!!  You KNOW you’re not that nice or insightful.  You KNOW that without somebody working on your behalf alongside you that your life – no matter how bad it is – would be vastly more frightful.  You can’t dodge bullets!  Or catch them in your hand!  You’re not your own hero – YOU are not Superman.  No – my friend… No…

I’m yanking on the chain hoping the light comes on.  Racing, leaving bars of light behind me like Tron… When you KNOW, you can’t help it!!  Your gratitude – can’t shelf it!  You cease caring about others’ Jesus beliefs, because the seeds of His deeds, have proceeded into trees, and the fleas of doubt flee, and with a blink… you can see.  … Because when you know – you KNOW.  And if you don’t – then let Him show.  Ask Him, and I guarantee He will.  Because YOU specifically are written into His will.  If you will, then He will, and when He wheels – Hold on Jill.  You don’t have to roll down the hill.  Just stay there and watch, til the tocks grow still, and the ticking counts down to an explosion – for you to be healed.

Because when you know… you KNOW.

And what you know cannot be stolen.

What you know cannot be refuted.

It’s yours – hold onto it.

Then live in such a way that it inspires others to catch a clue, and seek out the truth – that God LOVES you, and Jesus was crucified, buried, then came strolling back into life – so that they can KNOW and live free too.

… Because when you know – you KNOW.
