Slow slays haste unawares.
Take your time but not the denials. Learn to wait but refuse to wilt. Scream if you will and curse if you must, resuming afterwards your confidence and trust. The universe is slow but knows how to serve. If not, you can always resign.

Some people wear shades to shield their eyes. Others model to mask their gloom. Yet eyes are never as tender as gloom pretends. We just aren't used to being perturbed. So, we don the lens to project the lie that all is well.

"When the heart is hurting God is speaking."

When you encounter abuse how does it make you feel? Do you silently question, wondering if God us real? If so, you've yet to grasp your responsibility because circumstances should not impeach God's existence or limit our compassion. We should ponder rather our relation to Him and to our immediate circle. How much injustice fills this? How aware are we of others struggles? If their plights elude, how can we slander God? If we don't confront what we can, how can we confront what we can't? Our complaints are only valid when we get involved. Otherwise they deceive though they enrage. Yet rage alone fails; only action frees. The responsibility for changing the world rests with us, not with its Author. God created the world, not its abuses.

Things always muddle in the middle. But if you keep walking, enduring the dangers (and daggers), you'll emerge with a swagger self-redeeming. Then others will pay to see your wounds, even those who doubt your win.

Will you be brave when things fade and defeat seems certain, or will you prematurely fold and behold the loss of your mission? That's the decision we face when disappointment douses. Then we must decide whether to strive or to have a stroke, surrendering our hope because something broke our heart. Persistence in this regard is another word for "heart." Without it we won't achieve it, whatever it is no matter how much others give us their support. Ultimately, the dream is ours to abort.
