I ran into a wall.
A wall that was about 5 foot four inches.
Just tall enough that I couldn’t see over it.
When did I realize that I was blocked by this invisible
yet real wall?
Exactly when I decided not to write a post about stink bugs.
You think I am kidding.
I. am. not.
So there stands the wall not willing to budge.
But I did learn that I am a die-hard
encourager as I glanced at a line written while
trying to face down that wall,
How sad for a stink bug to be called such an unpleasant
name when it is doing what it was created for?
Yes, I decided to spare you more musings
about little creatures.
Where do we run when we hit a wall?
Who do we turn to for encouragement?
When perspective has vanished?
I was at a gathering yesterday and at one
point in our time together, the Word was presented.
The Word was read out loud.
The responses were varied.
Mouths opened wide.
Eyes fixed firmly on the one reading.
There were lots of “oohs” and “aahs”.
The Word of God is living and active.
This is the Word I took home with me:
Your words are what sustains me.
They bring me great joy and are
my heart’s delight,
for I bear your name,
O LORD God Almighty.
Jeremiah 15: 16
What words are helping you encounter a wall
in your life?
Leave me a comment.
Tell me what words are sustaining you
and keeping you company.
Ask me a question, perhaps I will compile
a few answers to help scale the wall
during the last
of these 31 days.
