Be Up And Stay Positive

Be up and stay positive.
To know it possible.

Changes being made,
Seems intended to make everyone crazed.
By taking away what had been normal.
To turn that upside-down.
For other ways to introduce,
A life to live that has nothing to do...
With preferences to wish and want,
A going back to a past already had.
Without looking forward to adjust and adapt,
To a future without comparing it...
With a purpose to seek a comfort sought,
Being comfortable and familiar...
That will allow what is unknown,
Coming these days to be shown...
A being up and staying positive about it,
Is better than trying to find...
Something that medicates the mind.
In an attempt to numb and evade,
What is going on everyday in the World.

Be up and stay positive.
To know this to do is possible.
Even though what is seen to show,
Whether accepted or not...
Whatever this is that brings regret,
Disappointment and tears.
Just know...
God does what God chooses.
Without expectations for explanations.
Or answers questions that are asked,
About choices God makes...
To satisfy and appease HIS creations.
As if this done to do,
Will make a difference...
To what God does and has chosen to do.

I thought we were the chosen ones.'

'Everything God does,
Has been a choice to choose it chosen.
Besides being deluded and fictioned,
Where else have been hiding in denial.'

    You don't know anything about the Devine nature, You talk as a not so well informed person of worldly things. You are a dime a dozen A little bit of God here will and there makes it right !
    You have to live the life and be born again, try and figure that one out
    I calls them the way I sees them
    And you don't look right to me !
    You are still wet behind the ears, get real or get off the pot !
