Two Wolves

The+legend+of+the+two+wolves

I tend to expound on the people and things that shaped me into who I am, and the Cherokee legend of the two wolves hits the nail on the head. For too much of my life, I fed the evil within me and allowed it to guide my steps. Fortunately, the good was the more powerful force, and as time went on, I began to feed it, and watched in amazement as it easily overpowered the evil I’d given control to. Looking back, I realize the good wolf within me was made strong by the good people God placed in my path. People like Judge Billy Meck who taught my Sunday school class when I was around the age of ten. It wasn’t just the things he taught me in that class, but even more so, it was the kind of man he was. Truth is, I don’t even know what kind of man Judge Meck was, but I know what kind of man I saw when I was a boy, and that’s how I will always remember him.

Still Climbing

I was raised by a man who was constantly ranting about how this person, or that group, was out to get him, and life just wasn’t fair. I seldom saw him at peace. Unfortunately, his ways rubbed off on me, and I spent much of my life fighting against the world. As a result, I had no peace within my soul.

trees trip quoteI didn’t learn to be at peace, and I didn’t one day figure out how to defeat those I perceived to be against me; God delivered me from my enemies—many of them imaginary—and delivered peace unto my soul. That’s not to say I am in a constant state of perfect peace, but I’m learning to let go of things quicker than I used to and turn to God for relief from the battles—whether perceived or real—of this world.

He has delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many against me. Psalms 55:18
