We Win!

victory-3
I started this blog to learn how to write non-fiction. And like a teenage boy going through puberty, this blog is still trying to find its voice. Its own unique take on the world and its occupants. So bear with me, as this blog squeaks and cracks along until it finds a mature (maybe) voice among all the chatterboxes of the internet.

  Sometimes we as humans can get discouraged by the circumstances that this sinful world sends our way. Good people seem to get punished, while evil seems to have its way. However, as a Christian I am constantly reminded that this world is messy because of what we’ve done to it. There are no good people. We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Is that pessimistic? Yeah if you stop there. Orson Welles once said that if you want a happy ending, it all depends on where you end the story. Well in that case, let’s look ahead. Because Jesus came to this earth to live a sinless life. He died on the cross as a payment for our sins. And on the third day, he rose from the grave. Later, he ascended into Heaven where he sits at the right hand of his Father. And while sin still runs rampant, there are those who are washed clean from the eternal consequences of our actions. They have repented of their sins, confessed that Jesus Christ is Lord, and they have asked God to take over their lives. I am one of those people. And for those who have let Christ in, we know the story does not end there. He will come back one day, wiping out evil. This song  by MercyMe has reminded me of that the last few weeks, and it perfectly sums up why I called this blog “Death to pessimism.” Not because this world is full of pink fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows, (though that would be awesome) but because this is not how it ends. In the end… We Win!

I don’t, have to know you, just to know you
Have been lied to at some point or place
Well, I can relate
And you’re wondering, if it’s worth it
Heartbroken, feeling worthless
Oh the hurt is too great
Like a punch in the face

But don’t forget
We’ve got something else in common
Bigger than all our pain and all our problems

This goes out to anyone down for the count
It’s not over
Don’t give up, don’t throw in the towel
Just remember, who you belong to
Let Me remind you
How this ends
We win
Woah, we win

We get pushed down, we get beat up
So afraid life’s gonna keep us
Up against the ropes
But hang on there’s hope
‘Cause if Christ is inside us it won’t be a fair fight
‘Cause Deep down we know
How the story goes

This goes out to anyone down for the count
It’s not over
Don’t give up, don’t throw in the towel
Just remember, who you belong to
Let Me remind you
How this ends
We win
Woah, we win
We win
Woah, we win

Ain’t no stopping us
He’s not done with us
We are more
More than conquerors
Ain’t no stopping us
He’s not done with us
We, are
More than conquerors!

Just remember, who you belong to
Let Me remind you
How this ends
We win
Woah, we win
We win
Woah, we win

Ain’t no stopping us
He’s not done with us
We are more
More than conquerors
Ain’t no stopping us
He’s not done with us
We, are
More than conquerors!

Ain’t no stopping us
He’s not done with us
We are more
More than conquerors
Ain’t no stopping us
He’s not done with us
We, are
More than conquerors!
