CAMPERVAN-K: A little prayer...
I've just watched the last episode of Game of Thrones. For me, it was such a big, big, BIG disappointment. When you think how much they invested in that story, and how much it has disappointed many fans.
The key to the storyline there, was that you had to stand back from the characters and think of the overall ‘game’ of it.
Life lived in pursuit of something like that becomes a game.
And, when you see the bigger picture, it becomes apparent that the game is not worth it. It all goes back to normal, the way it was before it all began.
All those lives lost and all those homes ruined… yet it all remains the same and people just get on with life.
The same goes for any war.
Our leaders want power or land or money - and the little people pay with their lives for it by being told lies about patriotism...
"You need to go to war to defend the realm/kingdom/country/family/religion…!"
Whatever the best excuse is to galvanise them into action. Pathetic that more of us haven’t figure that out yet - but when we do, they'll all be sitting on the only throne avaiable to them - the toilet!
Anyway back to the important topic of my campervan... I spent a couple of hours this morning sorting out the cupboards and putting in new ‘caddies’ and 'partitions' to hold stuff firmly, things that help reduce the rattles and bumps.
I moved the food cupboard from above the sink to below the cooking area. That old food storage now acts as the new clothes storage. The utensils are above the cooker and, oddly, this has made more room, there appears to be more cupboard space somehow.
For ages I had wanted to sit down in it and it was nice to be able to take the time and simply sit there and take it all in. Absorb it and watch the world go by.
In reality, I wanted to get into the driver’s seat, put the key in and drive off, out away from this horrid place.
I want to do so much, yet feel ‘tied’ to having to do stuff for others.
When am I going to have me time?
Perhaps I ought to do what the messages have been telling me to do – use Jesus’ name.
“Whosoever asks in my name it shall be given.”
As long as it is with confidence, surety, and humility. Not arrogance or bitterness, not even yearning... then it will come true for you. So, here goes:
Jesus, can you please change my life for the better? So that I am free to travel in my van, to enjoy exploring the world, this country, and being free to come and go as I please? I don’t want anyone hurt or harmed in this process, neither do I want an apocalypse to make that happen! But I do need to have enough money in the bank for me to dip into so that I don’t need to be stressed about wondering where the next plate of food is coming from. Ta very much.
That ought to do it.
