Where I Am Right Now

I received the following in an email this morning, and it sums up my life right now. I know I have been distant-in fact I have been non-existent to my blog, but I am experiencing a lot of struggles and uncertainties, and frankly I haven’t been in the sharing mood. Know that I haven’t forgotten about you, and I am hoping to catch up on all the blogs I follow over the next few days. Nehemiah is great, and when I look in his eyes I’m reminded of the reasons I cannot give up!

The ground I stand on is shaky, and the floor beneath me is cracked; nothing has remained constant except for change. I’m leaning on the fact that,

“This too shall pass.”

LORD PROP US UP...{there is more to this story, but here is what I wanted to share}

Every time I am asked to pray, I think of the old fellow who always prayed, ‘Lord, prop us up on our leanin’ side.’ After hearing him pray that prayer many times, someone asked him why he prayed that prayer so fervently.

He answered, ‘Well sir, you see, it’s like this.... I got an old barn out back. It’s been there a long time; it’s withstood a lot of weather; it’s gone through a lot of storms, and it’s stood for many years.

It’s still standing. But one day I noticed it was leaning to one side a bit.

So I went and got some pine poles and propped it up on its leaning side so it wouldn’t fall.

Then I got to thinking about that and how much I was like that old barn. I’ve been around a long time. I’ve withstood a lot of life’s storms. I’ve withstood a lot of bad weather in life, I’ve withstood a lot of hard times, and I’m still standing too. But I find myself leaning to one side from time to time, so I like to ask the Lord to prop us up on our leaning side, ‘cause I figure a lot of us get to leaning at times.
