Word for today; Rebel
a person who rises in opposition or armed resistance against an established government or ruler.
I used to hear this word when I was a kid. A family member would speak of a rebel child or a rebel adult. I never really understood what it meant, but today I see it and recognize it.
Actually there are rebels everywhere, mixing and socializing among us. I don’t always recognize them right a way but when I notice my spirit is changing from who I know it is, I think a rebel must have been nearby.
My goal each day is to remain true to myself. This can be a real task because we don’t always know someone is gradually feeding us with rebel thoughts. Gossip is a great way to turn our spirits into something we don’t want.
Political truths and lies plays havoc on our minds and souls. We all want the same things. Working together, honesty, helping each other are just a few. Who do we believe? Which commercial is truth?
What about the new friend we just made? We are pretty sure we want to have that relationship grow and then along comes rebel words. ” Did you hear what she did last weekend? Did you see those clothes they were wearing?” Gossip can be rebel, stronger than government lies.
Nothing is worse than hearing gossip from a friend we trusted for a long time. Finding out it was all a lie hurts, no matter what the reason for the lie was in the beginning.
There are rebels in churches, schools, work force. I guess if you look real hard, you can find a rebel in about any situation. So, be careful, stay true to thine self but yet enjoy your God given talents and don’t forget; always lend a helping word, hand to those in need.
