There was a fly on the windshield this Summer. I tried to save it 10 times in one day. It kept flying around trying to save itself...Then it died.

People are like that..

They think they are their own saviors. In some ways we are our own saviors. But we need help from others too at times.

There was a squirrel a few days ago that ran across the street in front of me. I stopped, then it ran back in the street. I stopped again, and it ran back across. I drove on..An the car behind me hit it because it ran out in the road again.

I was sad. I had tried to help the squirrel. But it wouldn't let me.

Indecisiveness killed it...

We can spend our whole lives trying to decide what we want, what we need, when it is right there in front of us. Calling out, "Right here, I am right here." We often choose the easiest route. Not because it is the best. But because it is the most familiar, and comfortable. Like an old pair of shoes that stink. But we can't bear to get rid of them, so we put up with the stink.

We plod along, reaching for the next rung on the ladder. Putting the career that we want most in the back of our minds. Maybe because we haven't had encouragement. Maybe because we are scared to succeed.

So we sweat, we cry, we lay broken in a heap on the ground, trying to figure ourselves out.

Sometimes we need to be carried..

We need others to see what we can do, what we are capable of..And we need to encourage people around us to use the talents they have. Don't expect your son or daughter to take over your business when you are gone.. They may want a life of their own.

They may want their own career..That they choose. Not you

We need the arms of the Creator to hold us..Closely

We need to see that 1 set of footsteps in the sand

To have our heads anointed with oil

To be immersed in peace..

To be be saved....

About Me

My photo
I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.

So why not make one?

Though I am surrounded by troubles, my God will preserve me against the anger of my enemies. He will clench His fist against my angry enemies! His Power will save me. The Lord will work out His plans for my life- for His faithful love endures forever.
