Funny how sayings get started and then suddenly everyone is using them. You hear them on talk shows, late night entertainers say them – they become part of the culture (almost).
No big deal.
Livin’ the dream.
Not to worry.
It is what it is.
Deal with it.
Build a bridge.
Get over it.
Live and let live.
And, my absolute least favorite?
It’s all good.
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
The other day I posted some health-related info on Facebook and in the comments my sister said, “That’s my sister – the life of the party!” I laughed when I read it because I know how snarky she can be! However, she always calls me or texts me with things like what’s good for high blood pressure? what oil should I use for itchy skin? what should my friend do for kidney stones? So even though she snarks and calls me the “life of the party” I know she values my information and (sometimes) my opinion.
My opinion means nothing though, folks. There is only one’s opinion that matters and His Name is God. Period.
The images on yesterday’s news were rather revolting. And, then to get the news that the bill to defund Planned Parenthood was voted down in the Senate. What has happened to the conscience of humankind? There is something intrinsically wrong with picking through aborted baby parts in a Pyrex baking dish. ***
When I hear someone say it’s all good to a fairly serious comment on a fairly serious topic – I want to scream…
NO, IT’S NOT!
We live in an upside-down world. Things we thought would never happen are happening right before our eyes. I, for one, want to know what I believe and WHY I believe it. My opinion means nothing – it is God’s opinion, written in Holy Scripture, on which I’m basing my truth. It’s not “all good” but one thing I do know is this…
My God is always good. He is always just. He is always true.
Let’s start a new saying, “It” isn’t all good but I know One who is ALL GOD and ALL GOOD, ALL THE TIME!
