In Others’ Words: Along the Path
Disclaimer: I stole today’s quote. Sort of.
Let me explain.
Sometimes I pick my quote for the day from my backlog of quotes. Sometimes none of those quotes “reverb” with me, and so I go skimming through the Internet topically or maybe I do a search of a particular person . . . You get the idea.
Last night I ended up at my friend S. Kim Henson’s blog, aptly titled Kim Henson’s blog: Well-Written Days: All About Livin’, Lovin’, and Laughin’.
There’s a lot I love about Kim: her writing, her sense of humor, her genuineness, the way we keep saying, “You too?” to each other.
And, I discovered last night, that Kim loves quotes like I do — as evidenced by her Quotes ‘N’ Stuff page.
The path and puddles quote “reverbed” with me because, well, I landed in a few puddles this week. Got my feet wet. I even felt like sitting down in one big, old puddle and just staying there for a while.
Yeah — that would be called quitting.
And then God whispered in my ear: Isn’t the word for the year “Confidence”?
Um … yes.
And then God whispered this: And isn’t your foundational verse for this year “Do not throw away your confidence?” (Hebrews 10:36)
Yes on that too. (And God definitely gets my attention when he quotes his Word to me.)
Confidence doesn’t sit in a puddle. Confidence splashes through the puddles, maybe — but it definitely doesn’t sit down and throw a pity party for itself in a puddle of water.
Here’s what I’ve decided: It’s okay to get wet because there’s puddles along my path–but only because I’m walking through them.
In Your Words: When you come upon a puddle in your path, what do you?
