UNLESS: A Bottle of Prescription

Unless………this word has been affiliated with so many of the things that I have untaken in life. Unless defined simply means “except on the condition that”. So, if A does B then C. Many of the transactions that we undertake in life are gauged by the cause and effect relationship of a powerful and robust unless.

Unless…….Mackie comes home he will be kicked out of the house.

Unless…….Daddy buys me a new pair of shoes, he does not really love me.

Unless……William gets off of drugs, he will be banned from our family.

Unless……I can wear Christian Louboutin, I will not fit into the elite group at work

Unless, unless, unless. The new culture of communications. How pressure filled is that?

Adults daze around in circles wondering what their life will be life if only they had made a different decision on life and because of it can never get a firm footing in the life they are currently living because the security of  a life already lived had never sunk in.

The love of God is a love that is not built upon an unless. His love is unconditional and without pretense. The love of God says, “Even though you were addicted to drugs, I can still love you extravagantly.” It is hard for many to comprehend being given such an awesome gift to be liberated when you were once walking around like a slave in the rat race of life and trying to remain on the plantation of society and culture.

The word unless has been responsible for so much grief in life after all, we are a series of the events that we untake and products of our environments right?  Unless has become a bottle of prescriptions for many where they believe that conditions must be thrown out in order to get someone to act the way that they should but who are we to always try to direct the traffic of the pain that we are not willing to treat. People don’t want your stuff, they want to know that you care. This may be the cause for the high rate of persons cutting themselves all over the globe…to the tune of 4 million people because they may have been met with an Unless which elevated their stress absent the unconditional love to work through the drama and get to the healing.

Unless, I keep writing, will you not believe that I love to?

Orphans walk with one eye present to be among the living, but a constant twitching in the eye because at any moment they made be yanked back into a system of bondage that they desparately want to escape. Traveling around from here to there with a stack of luggage on their back, if not visable to the eye, it is emotional weight that constantly feeds the track of their minds with full occupants in a race, going round and round, and around. These mental demons are on a treadmill attacking confidence, belonging, identify, inheritance, healing, and a possible future of peace.

This is the orphan spirit. A behavior that manfests what we belive we are not entitled to because we are unworthy to recieve such an awesome gift from a loving God. There is no need to prove yourself to your Daddy God. He knows what you are capable of whether you are holding a gun in your hand, a bag of weed, or a can of Bud Light burping incessiantly. God loves you and He does have a plan for your life. Associate yourself with the belief that no matter what I have done, Daddy God still loves me and has a place for me in His kingdom. Desire to be there and turn away from your current activity knowing that you have been adopted.
