the entertainer

It takes a special type of person to reflect the complexities of life making them entertaining. To have the ability to make you laugh, when you want to cry; forgetting your whole world is crumbling around you. That’s the quality, the magic the entertainer possesses. Most of our lives are a continuous cycle of working, paying bills, taking care of our families and just trying to make it through the day.

This routine becomes monotonous,we search for ways to escape our mondaine lives. A night on the town, a movie or play, or just some much needed quiet time away from the children. The question becomes “what should we do to entertain ourselves”? What is brought to remembrance is “a mind is a terrible thing to waste”, what we feed on will eventually take root in our lives; guarding our thoughts, eyes, and ears is very important.

When the desire to escape our lives arises we must be mindful of the avenues we choose to walk, we have been forewarned; “as a man thinketh in his heart,so he is”, “if a man walk in darkness he stumbles, and “what you feed will grow while what you starve will die”. On a daily bases these things seldom enter our thought patterns, we are so busy trying to survive the day. We must retrain ourselves to be intentional, to allow light to penetrate every facet of our lives; where there is light no darkness can dwell.

We have an enemy, an entertainer of sort; who will use anything to distract, deter, detain, and ultimately destroy our lives. His dwelling place is darkness, his desire is our company there, and once we make the choice to visit; he does all he can to make us feel comfortable. The table is spread with all the delicacies he offers; sexual depravity, alcoholic beverages, drugs of all types, hate, greed, fame and gluttony. He knows for some enough is never enough, they always want more.

We see him on the television, internet, in books, music and even in our conversations with each other; he is there lurking trying to remain undetected. We can see the importance of protecting the mind, eyes and ears from the entertainer. When the urge to escape looms over you like a warm blanket, fortify yourself by asking the Light bearer to Create in you a clean heart and renew in you the right Spirit.

My revelation as I sit by the pool of grace.
