Colin's Wise Wednesday - 26th June 2019

Thud! Lyn looks up from the dressing table to see what has hit the glass sliding door in our bedroom. Nothing - that’s strange. On investigating, looking through the door she sees a dove lying on the ground, jerking as if taking its last breath.  She calls me and I can tell from her voice that she is concerned and upset. I said that I couldn’t do anything.  I didn’t want to admit that I was “scared” to go and have a look. One seems so helpless in circumstances like this and my “copout” was that human presence just heightens the birds stress.  So I left it.  About an hour later I asked Lyn what she had done with the “body”. She said nothing but the “body” was gone.  The dove must have been dazed, came around and flew off. The dove had no idea why we had placed the sliding door where we did, he could not have seen it as his journey came to an abrupt halt. The glass door did its job by keeping the dove from following a path into the house, into a maze of rooms where there would be little chance of finding his way out.

This made me reminisce of how I have run into  “glass” walls, seeing my dreams take a tumble, just lying there in tatters the only movement being some inappropriate knee jerk reaction.  God has put invisible barriers in my path many times. God knows that while I won’t see or understand, hitting these barriers is what’s best for me. God knows that other than leaving my imprint on the glass, looking a wee bit dazed, confused and frustrated, I will  get over it,  I will be just fine. And you know what…. God knows that the outcome will be far better than if I had succeeded in following my own plans. Think back over your own life, is that not your experience as well?

Let’s pray: Please God when things don’t go accord to my plans please remind me to look to You for Your plans that You have customized for me. In Jesus name we pray with so much love and so much thanksgiving. Amen.

God Bless ~ Lyn & Colin
