Day 25: The Good Way

The apocalypse.

People are afraid of it, though there are some who are looking forward to it like a bunch of fanatics.  We may try to deny it, but the apocalypse will come and when it does, we must be prepared for it.

No, I am not talking about building some kind of barrack or underground lair or whatever to hide us from whatever disasters the apocalypse might bring.  I am not even thinking or talking about building spaceships that would bring us to the safety of another planet that we could inhabit.  I am talking about being ready in the sense that we have no regrets, that we have made peace with ourselves and with others, that we have done what it is we have set out to do.

It might sound easy, doing all of those things, but it is hard.  Hard but not impossible.

Today’s song is a song from Avalon, it is entitled “The Good Way“.

I love this song because it puts into perspective that it doesn’t matter if you’re reach or poor, if you own a Porsche or a motorcycle to go to work or school, if you have the best set of gadgets that the world has to offer, if you’re popular or not.  Those things don’t matter.  What matters is how we live our life.

Do we live it by lying, cheating, corrupting and being greedy?  Do we live it by taking and taking and never giving?  Do we live it by going one day at a time, living our lives to party and never caring if we just waste our lives away.  Or do we live it by simply living one day at a time, to the fullest.  Living without any regrets.  Living like there’s no tomorrow?

I don’t know why some people think that they have all the time in the world to accomplish those things that they need to accomplish, to fulfill their dreams and their aspirations.

I don’t know why some people think that they could take everything for granted–their life, their family, their loved ones, never saying that they love them and that they care for them.

Nothing in this world is forever.  We won’t live forever.  We won’t be able to bring the things that we are slaving for–money, fame, the material things–when we die.  What we can bring from this world to the next are those things that we have done and those things that we haven’t done.

As the lyrics of this song goes: Believe in your heart, right down to your soul.  Speak the true things, and know that you know.  ’Cause this might be the day, so live like it is.  Find a good way, and walk in it.

Below are the full lyrics of the song.  Listen to it well and hopefully you may get something out of it.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

Traffic noise, expensive toys
A love that never lasts
Broken homes and self-made thrones
We’re livin’ life too fast
That we forget the things that His love brings
Beyond what this world is
I can hear it still today
What the preacher used to say
This is how you live
You’ve got to..

Believe in your heart
Right down to your soul
And speak the true things
And know that you know
‘Cause this might be the day
So live like it is
Find the good way
And walk in it
Walk on

Saints of old and streets of gold
Will gaze upon His throne
Singin’ holy, holy
God of glory
We’ll worship Him alone
So keep your eye on the sky
While it’s all passing by
This world is not our home
‘Cause someday soon
We’re gonna be made new
But until then
You’ve got to…

Believe in your heart
Right down to your soul
And speak the true things
And know that you know
‘Cause this might be the day
So live like it is
Find the good way
And walk in it
Walk on

Believe in your heart
Right down to your soul
And speak the true things
And know that you know
‘Cause this might be the day
So live like it is
Find the good way
And walk in it
Walk on

Take a look around
The world is falling down
Why can’t we see
That it’s almost over
The clouds are rollin’ in
He’s gonna break the sky
The dead are gonna rise
Those who are alive in Him
Will fly, will fly

Find, find the good way
Find, find the good way
Find, find the good way

Believe in your heart
Right down to your soul
And speak the true things
And know that you know
‘Cause this might be the day
So live like it is
Find the good way
And walk in it
Walk on

Believe in your heart
Right down to your soul
And speak the true things
And know that you know
‘Cause this might be the day
So live like it is
Find the good way
And walk in it
Walk on


There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling".
