The show.


The Show by Lenka

I'm just a little bit caught in the middle

Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go I can't do it alone I've tried
And I don't know why

Slow it down
Make it stop
Or else my heart is going to pop
'Cause it's too much
Yeah, it's a lot
To be something I'm not

I'm a fool
Out of love
'Cause I just can't get enough


I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go I can't do it alone I've tried
And I don't know why

I'm just a little girl lost in the moment
I'm so scared but I don't show it
I can't figure it out
It's bringing me down I know
I've got to let it go
And just enjoy the show

The sun is hot
In the sky
Just like a giant spotlight
The people follow the sign
And synchronize in time
It's a joke
Nobody knows
They've got a ticket to that show
Yeah


I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I dont know where to go I can't do it alone I've tried
And I don't know why

I'm just a little girl lost in the moment
I'm so scared but I don't show it
I can't figure it out
It's bringing me down I know
I've got to let it go
And just enjoy the show


Just enjoy the show

      Do you ever wonder... Why we don't have a manual for Life? Success? Relationships? & Love?? I mean really, why don't we? Wouldn't life be easier that way? Really, if we had a book.. with an index, for when a dilemma appears, we could turn to page 96, second paragraph and there would be our solution. No more problems. No more crisis'. No more set backs. No trouble. Just solutions. A book where we could follow our life according and life, as we know it,would be just fine, more than fine! Happy. Stress free.

      Like in school, we were taught biology (I'll never use), or history (yeah its great to know what happened in the passed, but do we really need to learn about it for 12 years, and 4 after that?) Or what about Calculus (I will NEVER use that stuff, EVER. and surely I will never remember it even if I did need to use it one day.)? Why weren't we taking classes such as Surviving the Dating Stage? Or Parenthood 101? What about Making friends? Or MARRIAGE? (because we ALL know we need to learn that stuff.. wayy too many divorces happening these days) Or How you know he's THE ONE?

      But if there was a book... Or if they taught us in class, would we even listen? Probably not. We would most likely try and break every rule in the book. But you still kind of wonder.. Hmmm what it would be like. Would you purchase the book? Would you sign up for that class? I would. I could sure use a tutor right now too.

      Or if we followed every rule.. Studied for every test... Knew this subject back and forth. Could ace any test... Would it work? Like if we could learn about every situation.. every scenario, and know the correct solution, would it apply directly to our lifes?

       Or would life be like it was in the music video at the top of this post? Taking you places without your permission. Leading you down paths you never thought you'd chose. Always picking us up and dropping us off in random places, without warning. Is our life just one big "Show" that we have absolutely no control over?

       I believe it is a mixture of both.. I think God spoke his words so we could still read them today.. in the Bible. It is "God breathed." In a way its God's guidlines, rules,  for us to live our lifes by everyday. The Bible gives us examples of what to do, and what not to do and everything in between. Yes every single life is different and uniquely designed. Sometimes things aren't gonna go our way. Things aren't going to be the way we want. Sometimes things will run unusually smooth. We might struggle and get confused. But at the same time, we need to enjoy life's crazy ride. Life will throw you curve balls, you can learn to swerve and miss them, striking out, or you can hit them way into outfield and run the bases and finally slide into homeplate,  with the perfect homerun, winning the "game", the game of life.


     Life IS a maze. You are going to make wrong turns, get mixed up and turn right back around. You might even find yourself back where you started. You will hit dead ends that cause so much dissappointment and it might get so stressful you'll want to give up. You'll have to backtrack in an effort to find the correct route.  You think that every path you go down is leading closer to the end, you think you are almost there, but you are further away from the finishline and you are stuck. You'll turn to material things, "Ohh if I buy this new dress, car, computer, house... If I had a million dollars... If I marry the man of my dreams... If I move to the big city... then I'll be satisfied." Then you go down another route, drugs, drinking, new job, new hobby, new husband, new this.. new that... It all leads to a "new" dead end, leaving you worn out and restless. There is only ONE way through this maze, you may have to try every option possible to get to the end. But you will feel so relieved when you reach the end.. when you stop looking for a way to the end.. Stop thinking so hard, think outside the box. As a kid, I would always start at the end of a maze, and try to find my way to the start. So maybe if we start at the end, if we start with being happy, content, fully focused on Him, then we go through the maze looking how our life should be, what it should look like. Once we figure it out, we can start tracing our path and figure out it was all too simple, God's there. Waiting for you at the finish line. With open arms, Start with him. and end with the beginning. Know what your life should look like at the end, and start making the correct turns that'll lead you there.. Just like in the video, God will pick you up and place you where you need to be. You may not like every point in your life. But you'll know in the end everything will turn out just the way it should.

      Love IS a riddle. I don't know about you but riddles, to me, are ridiculous, and very hard to solve. I mean who wants to make your brain think and THINK and think so hard about some silly riddle, a joke, a puzzle, a phrase with a double standard meaning. I know every time someone tells me a riddle, I think about it for about 3 seconds and say "I don't know I give up, Whats the answer?" But we shouldn't give up. Not at all. Yes they are definitely hard to solve, and extremely difficult. But just wait, it will come to you. Just give yourself time. Give yourself time to figure "love" out. Let the answer come to you. Stop putting so much pressure on yourself to find the answer. IT WILL COME TO YOU, your prince will find YOU. He will and he'll be your answer. Everything will make sense. You'll know why all your other "answers" weren't the right ONE's. Why nothing else worked. It'll just click!


       ------------------------------------

You've got a front row ticket for the show (even backstage passes) to... YOUR show! It might be a bumpy ride, so fasten your seat belts, sit back, relax, grab your popcorn, put on your 3D glasses, and just enjoy the show...

A Skin Bag for Jesus! said...

Oh wow! I get more impressed with every new blog you post! This one had a zillion treasures in it! I loved them all! Ahhh, I see a wise writer in you!

Yeah, God's given us a manual... but we still have a lot of questions that we're continuing to seek answers to. He tells us to ask for wisdom, and He promises to give it to us if we do. Though, He hates it when we waver and began to doubt what we were told. Sadly, we're quick to doubt Him, quick to waver, quick to turn from the wisdom He's given.

I LOVED your "Life is a maze"! Isn't it though! But who doesn't like drama while watching a movie? Who doesn't like knowing how it'll all work? Who doesn't like the suspense? Life would be boring without a whole lot of unknown.

And of course (you had to know I would!), I LOVE these lines that you put there, "So maybe if we start at the end, if we start with being happy, content, fully focused on Him, then we go through the maze looking how our life should be, what it should look like. Once we figure it out, we can start tracing our path and figure out it was all too simple, God's there. Waiting for you at the finish line. With open arms, Start with Him. and end with the beginning. Know what your life should look like at the end, and start making the correct turns that'll lead you there.. Just like in the video, God will pick you up and place you where you need to be. You may not like every point in your life. But you'll know in the end everything will turn out just the way it should."

Bravo, dear girl! Poof, you've found your answer! :)

I looooooooooooooooooove YOU!
