And so, every trip outside, I have to corral her, with my words or at times by going out to the pole, to bring her back. To ensure her safety....to watch over her.
I wonder how many times there are poles in our life......area's that we walk around blindly, not knowing the danger that surrounds us. Sin, that seems to be 'not so bad' or even just walking so close to the line of sin....that one wrong step, and we are wallowing in the pool of offense. I wonder how many times, God, in His loving nature, tries to warn us, or corral us, as it were, to keep us safe. And yet, our will, our desires, our want to hang out at the pole.....so often keeps us from listening to the prompting of the Holy Spirit. We recklessly swing around the pole, ignoring the danger.
In this Season of Lent, may we look inward to those things that hinder....and the sin that so easily entangles...and run with perseverance....away from the pole.
