Trustworthy & True

Lily Among Thorns Song Of Solomon 2:2 In the Last Days 2nd Peter 3:3

Shape Up and Fly Right, Chapter 2, Pages 72, 73

Trustworthy and true is the Lord’s Word, and the love of the Lord enabled me to continue. I did so suffering the monotony of the day-by-day mundane coexistence. On the rare occasions, however, everyone was summoned to hear yet another mind-numbing lecture, or perhaps a long-winded government propaganda film. I began to think on these occurrences as more of a blessing in disguise and took these opportune moments to relax from what was soon becoming the routine.

A bit befuddled at times I felt like, how could this be happening to me?  Because if it weren’t happening to me, I would never have believed it myself!

Chapter 2, Page 73

On one particular night, and maybe perhaps two months into this venture, I as always gave it my earnest effort to finish the job. But on this night with the weight of the workload weighing me down, which was pretty much the norm for anyone of us on any given night, I knew come closing time no way would I be anywhere near to completion. In a most stealth-like manner, our little group pulled together and those nearest to the one in trouble were there to lend a helping hand.

Author’s Commentary

Lily wishes more than anything she could awake from this living nightmare. But there looks to be no light at the end of her tunnel of horrors. The high-minded in high places are wielding  their power as errand boys for a malicious “Beast Cabal”.

Lily raised to live by the Golden Rule, to treat people the way she wish to be treated. Lately Lily as a small benevolent cog in a gigantic fierce malevolent machine, she is coming to experience the Golden Rule doesn’t apply very well if its only one sided. The new normal is well said in the Bible as it is written in Isaiah 5:20, Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Lily has no delusions concerning her unpleasant captivity and  no matter how minuscule her participation may be in the grand scheme of things. She knows without much deduction on her part, because of the hostility toward her belief in the Bible and “As It Is Written”. Lily is not very optimistic she will ever live in “Liberty & Justus For All” ever again. Now with the weight of the world literately through forced labor weighing her down. Lily comes to the agonizing conclusion this is only the beginning of her sorrows.
