“A POEM FOR THE CHRISTIAN ‘HUGUENOT’* [MARTYR] IN ALL OF US!” a.k.a.: “Be Sure To Leap ** For Joy When You’re Hurtin’!” Feb. 17, 2019 (Sunday)
BEING T O O-COMFORTABLE – May NOT-be a blessing!!!!!
So! SOME TRIALS AND STRESS [and-we-aren’t-just-a-guessing***]
Might-be WHAT-YOU-NEED – to GROW AND DEVELOP,
For God’s LOVE can “test,” and – it-will envelop,
Your life – and-CAN-CHALLENGE-YOU, but HELP-YOU, you know,
TO KNOW [that] The-Lord-really-loves-you**** [and-has-told-you-so!]
THEREFORE, WHEN-YOU FACE “TRIBULATIONS” TODAY,
Do as Jesus did! [and]-Shout: “Hip! Hip! Hooray!” 🙂 – I don’t know! Well, OK!!
* – The “Huguenots” were a group of French protestants, persecuted quite vigorously under King Louis XIV, who issued The Edict of Fountainebleau, which allowed for legal harassment in the form of “dragonnades,” where The Huguenots were driven from their homes into exile; so, they were true “extremists,” devout and ready to suffer martyrdom for the sake of glorifying Jesus Christ. [ Now, THAT’S DEVOTION!] Huguenots were DEFINITELY – about NOT BEING TOO COMFORTABLE!!! “It’s important – to be comfo’able . . . sometimes!!!” The Mystic Poet et al!
** – Even though it’s NOT “a leap year,” like in 2020, where we will have 29 days in February, to make up for four 1/4 day periods in the previous years! 🙂 -Yay!
*** – IF you happen to be acquainted with The Christian Faith, you will know that Jesus
said we should expect difficulties in life, just as he experienced not-so-pleasant things, but that we should rejoice in those difficulties, for they would be evidence of our living “righteous” lives! see, e.g., John 16:33: ” . . . In The World, you WILL have trouble, but TAKE HEART . . . .”
**** – and EVERYONE! 🙂 – Yay!
