I’d Rather Give Audience to Spirit by Elizabeth Bice Luerssen
I really wasn’t enjoying the show playing on my stage of consciousness–sad, depressing, even frightening, and with a cast of characters no one could love.
“The show must go on.” It must? Must something so bad have a good run? Then I had an angel of an idea: I stopped watching; took away the audience. And the show closed!
That poem resonated with me the minute I read it and I thought of times when those unwanted shows tried to entertain me in my thoughts. Psalm 34:19 states “A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.” This means to me that I need to question my focus when an endless tape is playing and I will do that today.
