i tried to pick my way more carefully as the rocks dug deep. the rocks piercing my bare heels reminded me of when sins try to dig their way deep into life. i kept walking, because i knew ahead there would be relief.
i came upon an even more rocky spot. the grass beside the road alured me... beckoned relief for my cracked feet. i remembered that He is our rest for our cracked faith when many pebble-problems are thrown our way.
the grass provided temporary relief before there was no grass and it was back to a wide driveway with packed dirt and the rocks. i am reminded that with Him, there is ever constant help... we never must worry that our help will run out as the grass had done. even when the rock tough-problems come, He is always there.
i come upon the gate. gracing a cowboy on his faithful horse-fleshed compainion, he is shown rounding up the cows. i unhook the chain and open it, reminding myself that He is the only gate-way into the full life.
ahead, i see sun gleaming on the rock-turned-to beachsand driveway. i remember that even though we may be going through a rocky time in life, there is always shining spots sent from God ahead.
