In all else stand

wattled_plover_maraIt is in the moment of trials and tribulation people like myself often choose to stay and frolic around rather than to retreat or run as fast as life will allow. It is in happiness we forget to find our solace or resting place. Far to often we find ourselves in that happiness, questioning the goodness thereof and in. We are guilty of failing to question the chaos and opting out rather than standing still in it.
I ponder over the scripture where the writer states “in all else stand and faint not”.

Why is that?

Was he really telling us to stand in times of chaos or was he telling us not to faint from fear or preposterous sights or surroundings? I know I am guilty of standing when I am in need of flight and fleeing when it is critical for me to stand.

It is on this day I will stand. I call unto me the ability to stand. I will stand in the happy, joyous, loving, and peace-filled moments and savor the flavor of LIFE… living in full enjoyment with the enrichment of knowing I am!

Today I celebrate the will to stand… in all else/happiness STAND!
