Before I shut down for the night I usually spend a little time in the Psalms. I say ‘shut down’ euphemistically because with six light sleepers in the house under the age of six, we more nap than actually sleep.
Last night, the phrase that stuck in my head – and resurfaced a number of times in the night – was that the hills melt like wax in the presence of the Lord…I kept mulling over how things that would appear to be obstacles to what He wants to do and where He wants to go have a tendency to dissolve when He gets involved (and He’s always involved).
I read that it happens.
I’ve watched it happen.
And yet I wonder if it’s going to happen again.
I’m facing my share of hills right now – some of them squarely between me and what I believe He is wanting to do. I need to adjust my thinking to make room for His ability to make those go away…or if He does not make them go away, to have the grace to venture through or over them.
True obstacles to His intended course of direction melt away at the appointed time.
