Staying in Line, Words from my Heart by A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Staying in Line.

Thoughts of childhood and all those lines we stood in. Minutes that seemed like hours.

Times you broke out of line only to be corrected and times your mind wandered and you forgot to follow the line... you were staring off into space.

OR there was a really neat rock almost five feet away and you desperately want to make a dash for that rock... while no one is looking. No one like the adult in charge.

Remember those lines? Hands to your side. Do not touch anyone. Walk in a straight line.

How about  these lines? These children have no food.. they are staying in line..hoping and lifting up there hands for nourishment. They are starving. They will not budge from this line. If they did they would miss what is being offered to them.

Are you starving for joy in your life?
Are you in need of a plateau to rest?
Is the climb to hard right now?

God does not demand a line...but staying in His light makes a huge difference. When you turn away from His light and make a dash for that special 'rock' or thing that is tempting you... or push the limit on the direction you want to go totally opposite of where He is leading you...the result will be less than satisfying. We are often tempted to put more faith in what we perceive around us than we do in what He offers from His kingdom. His light will fill you with the power to make this journey. His love and grace will support you in every need, providing exactly what you need.

Words from my heart,

"When a land rebels it has many rulers; but with an intelligent ruler there is lasting order." Proverbs 28:2
