STAND

by Nick Furey on 03/24/15

STAND -Strength To Achieve New Direction 


During a court hearing, a judge may ask if there is anyone who will STAND in support of the defendant. Some people wonder if they were in a bad situation if anyone would take a STAND for them.  People who are Bullied wish that someone would take a STAND against the oppressor; yet who will take a STAND for the Bully (to discover WHY he/she is a Bully?

During this Easter season, we reflect on the Passion of the Christ.  If you have ever seen "The Passion", there is a very graphical scene where Jesus is being whipped.  Normally, after 30 lashes with the leather straps, a man would simply lie there in misery, but Jesus did something deviantly powerful - He stood up!  This was an insult to the torturers, basically telling them that "That's all you got?!".  Jesus took that STAND because He knew He had to pay for your hurts, your cancer, your divorce, your uncertainty.  "By His stripes we are healed".  Each time they whipped Him, He stood up!  
So when you need Strength To Achieve New Direction in your life:
1. Remember that Jesus stood up for you.
2. Take a stand for someone in need. (Cross racial, religious and other barriers if necessary)
3. Rely on PASSION and POWER to overcome difficulties in life.  
PASSION - Power And Strength Show Inspiration Over Negativity
POWER - Persistence Over Weaknesses Enables Restoration

4. When you develop this new Strength, use it to make your life Better and not become Bitter.  Notice the two words (Bitter and Better) are almost identical except for two letters i and e.  In writing, ie. stands for "for example"; and I want to give you an example how to find new direction:  the i stands for - Individual, Impossible, Incorrigible, Inconsiderate, Inability; whereas the E stands for - Everyone, Enlightenment, Enabling, Encouraging, Eternal.  The things of your PAST - Put Aside Shadowed Times can cause us to become Bitter or we can choose to Forgive, releasing us so we can become Better.

I would like to leave you with an inspirational poem I wrote:

STAND-Strength To Achieve New Directions
----------------------?
?
Emptiness envelops so many people, 
 young and old.  
Could we truly bear to hear  
 the stories they have told?  
Of abuses and pain  
humiliation and fear  
 Of hopelessness and abandonment  
and wondering why they’re here.
?
Because of their color  
 lifestyle, or status in life  
They are made fun of and hurt  
and left with undo strife.
Racism, hate crimes, bullying  
 and judgmental minds  
Must begin to look in their heart  
and discover what they’ll find
?
Take a STAND for these souls  
 give them a sense of HOPE,  
for you never really know  
 if they may be on their last rope.
?
Suicide kills more than a life  
it kills HOPE as well  
 It makes us realize how life  
can be a living hell.
?
Take a STAND in your school,  
 on your job or on the street,  
 knowing your support and grace  
might get them on their feet.
Strength To Achieve New Directions  
 is the hope their longing for  
To know that they’re life is worth it  
and see love outpoured. 
?
Where there’s violence, Take a STAND  
When there’s injustice, Take a STAND;  
Where there’s hopelessness, Take a STAND  
Where there’s bullying Take a STAND 
?
Want to Achieve New Direction in your life? Take a STAND and in Strength begin to see your life turn around.
