Light Going Against the Grain
Would you have courage to use your voice to say what needs to be said?
Would if it meant standing by yourself in pure vulnerability?
Would if it meant letting go or moving on to fulfill your purpose?
Would if it made you lose something?
Would you stick with something if it went against the grain of everything you believed in and hoped for?
The phrase going against the grain is when something is very difficult for you to accept or do, because it conflicts with your values or beliefs.
Choosing to be turned on by conflict versus turned off engages us in doing something about it. Sometimes you will be used for what you can do by others who dislike the thread that you represent to fight the battle that needs to be fought.
When you face opposition and are figuring out how you will respond, it will be hard. Some days you will respond as a warrior ready to fight the battle and other days as a worshipper ready to spread the word about what’s worth fighting for.
Are you in a moment of going against the grain, in a place where it is challenging to accept or be a part of something that conflicts with your beliefs?
Will you be courageous and make your voice heard through battle and give worth to what you need to fight for?
We will all face battles and will have to choose how to respond, in those moments we are a light going against the grain. Go out there, do not be afraid and do not get discouraged. Get out there and face them.
