LESSONS FROM THE LITTLE MAN

The Little Man loves to cry wolf in the form of these words--"HELP, I'M TUCK!"  There are times he is "Tuck", but in most cases he has stuck an arm or leg somewhere and is pretending he cannot get it free.  A great game guaranteed to have the adults in his world running to save the day.  Once he began to play the game, I began to pay less attention to his cries for help.  At times, he really is stuck, but I had heard his cries so many times, I ignored his pleas--not knowing he really needs help.  Be careful when crying, "Wolf"!



I was shadowing him outside today when he stopped by for a visit and began thinking this over.  Please know "I am NOT stuck".  "Suffering is the pathway of obedience."  God is teaching me--again.  I can be a slow learner.  A friend admonished me to go back and read my own book and take note of the steps on the journey of grief.  I know this will pass and I will rebound with joy once again reigning in my heart.  The joy and peace which has God as the only source.  I have read The Book and know the examples He has given to show me this promise.

So you, Dear Friends, become my sounding board when I am walking down the path of suffering.  You get to hear some of my thoughts, some of my cries to God, some of my heartbreaks, and some of my despair.  I PROMISE YOU THOUGH I AM NOT STUCK!  He will not allow me to stay in this place and I see His Light shining brightly through all of your concern and prayers.  Bear with me--I will move on.


38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a]neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39

  1. Don't you love how God is right there in the middle of those places that feel so stuck, but really aren't?

    And don't you love how He uses those little ones in our lives to teach us great big lessons that we so badly STILL need to learn?

    He keeps inviting us to something deeper, greater, more beautiful, even though we sometimes feel like we're going nowhere fast. I'm so grateful, with you, Lulu ...

  2. What an encouraging post for all who feel 'tuck from time to time. God is faithful and we find that the more we are in his Word and with his people. Have a blessed Holy Week as we remember the Source of all our hope and blessing.

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
