(In) Courage - A Moment to Breathe - Day 200

I hope you are having a great day.

In today's online class I worked on Day 186 in the 

Heather's Hobbie Haven - A Moment to Breathe - Day 200

Isaiah 55:8-9
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways." This is the Lord's declaration. "For as heaven is higher than earth, so my ways are higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."

Today's story is about child-proof locks.

I push down hard and turn it to the right.
The lid still won't open.
So I try it again.

Children aren't supposed to be able to open certain things.
Seat belts are in cars for a reason.
Electrical outlets are covered for a reason when little ones are around.
They're meant to say "KEEP OUT!"
But as children, we go meddling with our little fingers, twisting and turning until suddenly, the cap comes off.

We do this as adults too.
We meddle with our words and our mouths.
We stick our heads into business that has nothing 
to do with us.
We whine when we don't get the answer when we want it, how we want it.
We whine when we get the wrong answer.
It might seem harmless, but this whining and meddling could be dangerous not only to us but to those around us.

The next time we're facing an obstacle, a closed door, maybe we should just back away from the situation. 
Maybe it's like a child-proof lock from our Father.

Sometimes a closed door or a denied opportunity is meant for your protection.

I don't know about you but I know I need to work on this.
I want things when I want them.
Everything is on my time.
I can hardly ever see the greater plan.
Life seems like a giant child-proof lock.
