“He shall bruise your head,…” Matthew 3:15
Today is Tuesday. It feels like a bunch of piled up Mondays. Maybe I should find a hole to crawl into somewhere. I think I’d prefer that right now.
I made a mistake last week at work. I found out this morning. The whole day has been nothing but damage control. It was something so basic, I can’t believe I missed it. But I did, and that’s that.
Readers know I’ve had health problems; bypass, major surgery, etc. I’m not young anymore. Things are gradually fading. I had myself tested this year for possible onset of…senility. Yeah, that’s sounds fairly benign. At the end of it, I had a memory test. The doctor scored the test and said it was actually a fairly impressive display…for someone my age. I got stuff most people miss.
Still, I know I’m not what I once was. That’s not a very fun realization. But there is hope.
When God caught Adam and Eve with their hands in the cookie jar, He informed them that they will return to the dust of the ground whence they came. I recall my pastor giving us the literal translation of the Hebrew.
“And, dying, you will die.”
In other words, we don’t just sail along until the chime strikes midnight and we keel over. We’re dying every day. It’s another way of saying life is terminal. It’s happening every day from birth.
I had a very good weekend. Thanks to MakeItUltra I had a huge surge in readership and new followers. Things are going fairly well at the moment, then today happened. I honestly think Satan likes to let us have some fun and then zing us right when we’re riding the wave. OK, old boy. Have your fun while you can. You’re going to have your pointy tail handed to you before much longer.
Eve’s Seed is coming for you. He’s going to bruise your head – some translations say “crush,” which I prefer. When He’s done, he’ll tell me and everyone who believed Him to come on home.
No more days like today.
