Our Walls....
Mood:  quizzical
Now Playing: Thanks to Brother Godwin for this one....
Topic: Wise Christian Quotes!

I woke up early this morning and was going back to sleep but a lot of things running through my head...namely a Rick Godwin tweet..which I thought was non pertainent, yet even trite...but that is how a "WORD" sent out will hit You at a flying mallet or a velvet covered brick (My Favorite)

The Quote:

Sometimes you put walls up "not "to keep people out, but to see who cares enough to break them down!- Rick Godwin

So here I read it and re-read it...seemingly not for me..but I'm tired trying to get another hours worth of rest.... and realizing this was me, and is me! Have my own walls been ever taken down...have they been just to see, or just to keep others out? Maybe a little of both!

We all have walls, and most of them have been built with the bricks of hurt and disappointment, to protect us...they are veneered with the graffiti of life, or facades of toughness or the dangerous ones of faux lowliness...sometimes they are even camoflaged with the Word of God.. Yes the people that can quote a verse on every occasion...nice folk, brethren, yet do You know them, can You get past that wall, that barrage of Scripture and ritual to a level of transparency and know them? 

This seemingly simple statement by Rick speaks much....I think it is key to where real relationships of depth are formed..the soul ties in a positive sense..yet it means vulnerability (therefore the protective walls).

I really do not have a distinct summation to this post except that I know there will be some  who will read this and it will make them reflect.

Yet My walls are up just like everyone else, excepting I have always tried to keep a nice picture window that is clear to see in... hoping maybe  there will be that one who will see in, see the potential and throw the brick....

I know of one like that with me...I see the toughness, the sharp wit, the sarcasms, all are truthful, yet truthfully saying I am waiting for someone to "throw the brick", I want to be known, and loved for who I am inside not just a nice outer wrapping....

I thank God that He is with me in all I do. Just as a point of clarity, I am not talking of this relationship I have with the Lord in regards to the quote...I am talking of life and relationships in the here and now, with those around us..My relationship with Christ is what keeps me together and He gives me the strength and tools to discern the walls in my life and others...

So My Prayer is You and I encounter those bricks or wrecking balls from the right ones, to open us up and to grow...

Well now having writing what I need to, I still can grab an hour of sleep before my breakfast and power walk with Buster the wonder dog!  Have a blessed day,

In Him, Brother Tim

P.S. I think is Tom Petty is close to the mark...
