Upside Down

I've been thinking lately...with the recession, mortgage crisis, financial crisis, new currency standard, world unrest etc. etc....ever feel like we are spinning round and round and may very well have fallen down a well...we may very well be on a road going nowhere as a nation, as a a world? I think perhaps we have been in this state for quite sometime but haven't realized reminded me of these lyrics...or I should say, these lyrics reminded me of this upside down state we find ourselves in today in our world. Nothing is as it appears, right becomes wrong and wrong becomes right. All I can think to say is "Lord, Help!"

“LIVING LIFE UPSIDE DOWN” lyrics by Russ Lee

What if we’ve fallen to the bottom of a well
Thinking we’ve risen to the top of a mountain
What if we’re knocking at the gates of hell
Thinking we’re heaven bound
What if we spend our lives thinking of ourselves
When we should have been thinking of each other
What if we reach up and touch the ground
To find we’re living life upside down.

Boy, it sure feels like it. Everyday, you wonder - What next? Who next? Up to my elbows in spring break has given me a break from that world. It is abut kids and trying to find some fun with rotten weather and I have left the Real World behind for a while - feels good. Will back at it soon enough...

That song is really relevant, and thought provoking. This is one crazy upside down world...more and more I feel like the Bible say...I am a stranger and an alien.

I'm with Pat...this world is not my it any wonder we feel all discombobulated when we survey our surroundings!

That reminds me of the passage in Acts, when some men brought the apostles forward and accused them of "turning the world upside down". The truth was, the apostles were turning the world "right-side up!"

I guess that's a challenge for us, too, isn't it? To get this crazy world turned back the right way!

Great post...

Everything does seem upside down. I find myself overwhelmed at night praying for our country...

people lost ... a world lost ... any wonder why? for turning their backs on God. Lord Jesus, please forgive your children ... restore us unto You.

Dear jada gigi,
deb is right...this world is not our home.
i really wish that i realized this more and prayed like mrs. mac did for the poor souls who are not saved yet and can't claim heaven their home.
i think that the lord is causing these bad times so that their blinded eyes would open.
i wish that dad golden could see this. he is 82 and not saved yet.
this was a good post jada terry
