Have you ever been chugging along and then all of a sudden something or someone just stops you in your tracks? And you know, there really isn’t a reason for that person to be stopping you they just seem to get in your way. Over the past week I have had the pleasure of dealing with one of these people.
Now the multi-tasking inner preschooler in me would like to shoot him, stuff him, and mount him on the wall, but fortunately (especially for him) the mature, multi-tasking, Christian adult is prevailing and I am dealing with every question, inquisition, stall tactic, undermining attack, and so on and so forth with every bit of grace that God gives me – and I thank Him for it!
So why am I sharing this? Because it is an opportunity to talk about struggle or as I prefer to call them speed bumps. When things are going amazing in your Christian walk and everyday life Satan throws up a wall. Well, instead of looking at the wall and getting angry and discouraged how about you look at it as a speed bump. Take a minute – Pray – and continue to roll on. Yes it may slow you down, and it may be a little bumpy, but in the end you will be all the better for having pushed on. And who knows – maybe God is trying to teach the “bump” something as well.
