walls

I just recently finished a book called Chasing Daylight. In it I came to a chapter that discussed finding God’s will for your life. There the author described how too often we look for God’s windows and doors, but fail to see the walls. Yes God put walls up, but not to stop us. Sometimes we have to run through the walls. Life isn’t always going to be easy or a matter of navigating opportunities, there comes a time when we have to step up and put or faith to the test.

I don’t remember which Harry Potter movie it is but there comes a point in which Harry has to run full speed into a wall to get to the right train station. I think if he instantly saw the platform, no faith would be required. He had to make a choice, either risk life in limb for a dream or never try.

In my own life, I have no idea whether I’ll get through the wall or if I’ll crash hard into the bricks. All I know is that nobody gets through walls jogging, and right now I’m sprinting!

    "You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you. It is easy that you believe a rope to be strong and sound as long as you are merely using it to cord a box. But suppose that you had to hang by that rope over a precipice. Wouldn't you then first discover how much you really trusted it? … Only a real risk tests the reality of a belief." — C.S. Lewis.sorry, i was reading around and this post reminded me of that quote. 🙂
