The Fences

I walked down the ally's again. This time I took note of all the different fences. And, It got me thinking about all the different fences I've had around my heart, sometimes. Fences of fear, pain, regret, bitterness, resentment, distrust. I've built them up pretty big, like a fortress. I've had to pray a lot, work a lot to break down those fences and allow myself to see God's truth. Allow myself to live in peace, faith, hope, and joy.
Right now, I've noticed that my trust fence has gone back up. Darn it! I just tore it down and was thinking I could step out in trust, a little bit. But, no, it's back, secure around my heart, for now. I've been praying to sweet Jesus to tear it down, one board or brick at a time. I don't want it to become a fortress.
Jesus, I know you are working in my life and on my heart. Keep me secure IN your fence, and break down my fence. Say That Again to me today. You love is my fence and I can trust IN you!

  1. Great post...great illustration...oh I am working on that trust fence I put up again recently also...I want it removed also

    Now I love the look of the last fence, it isn't so strong you can't step over it or go between the slats....


Thank you for your comments, I like hearing from you!
