Blogtober, Day 4. Laugh Out Loud.

If you know me at all, you know where I stand on a spiritual, and political level. The short version is that I’m a Spirit-filled Christian, and I’m a conservative.

The days we have been living in, honestly, have been wild, regardless of where you land on the political or spiritual spectrum. These are crazy days. Enough to make you want to curl up in bed til Christmas. However…oftentimes, when I read whatever fresh, steaming garbage is in the news, I can’t help but laugh. Sometimes, I laugh really hard. Out loud, one might say.

I’m not sure why this is, but I think my faith is the biggest reason. Because of the confidence I have in the Lord and His will, the blatant evils I see just remind me of how short the devil’s time is. He’s freakin’ out, like a goon. This is not to diminish the very real threat he poses, but when you know who wins in the end, it’s easy to look at it all and just laugh at how ridiculous life is. Follow that up with gratitude for my salvation, and frequently trying to keep my will surrendered to God’s, and you’ve got a general sense of peace.

Do I know what’s coming? Nah, bro. I know Jesus is coming, but that’s it. Do I know how to prepare? Ehh, I don’t even have a bag packed in case of an emergency evacuation. However, I know that God has seen it all. He has won every battle. I only have to stand firm through it. Which, if I’m honest, can be really hard. But ya know? I actually think it would be harder to feel afraid all the time. I don’t know how some of y’all do it. I just can’t vibe that way.

So, while I will burrow under my covers because it’s cozy season, I will not bury my head in the sand, and I will not fear what comes. I’ll just heave a sigh, raise my eyebrows in disbelief, shrug because I’m not really surprised, and laugh because what have I got to lose? Not much. Not when heaven is my home, and Jesus my King is waiting for me.

Maybe I really am becoming a Proverbs 31 woman, after all…

“Strength and honor are her clothing, and she can laugh at the days to come.” Proverbs 31:25
