The wolf in sheep’s clothing

The one true strength between good and evil, the truth, no matter how long it takes, will rise to the surface.
They say power moves the world. If it is so, what is your greatest strength? When good versus evil, evil most often will stop at nothing to win. It is deceptive. It is underhanded. And most often, it wins by misleading the facts. Bad things happen to good people. It doesn’t matter if you have been wronged. It doesn’t matter if you are 100% right. Evil has no conscious. Nor does it have empathy. It is sad. But it is true. Evil has the upper hand because it is evil and will do anything to win; where good acts with the consciousness of truth and the faith that justice will prevail.
Good does not always win. In fact, triumph over evil is most often a long frustrating road that can lead to discouragement and hardship. It can lead to doubt, disbelief, and heartache. It can take the strongest believer and turn them cynical. It can snuff out the sun and leave days cloudy and gray without hope of a better tomorrow.
It takes the purest heart to believe and hold on. It takes time, patience, and diligence. It takes holding on to the truth and standing with it in good and bad times, in times when there seems no inspiration or hope, when the world seems to be falling apart all around you, and there seems to be nowhere to go or no one to turn to.
The one true strength between good and evil, the truth, no matter how long it takes, will rise to the surface. Evil will eventually burn out in its own flames of trickery and deception. The wolf in sheep’s clothing will eventually be exposed. It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. But as the old proverb goes – every dog has its day.
