Sharp Edges

     How easy is it for you to walk barefooted across a rocky parking lot?  I know kids do it but my feet are just not that tough.  The jagged, sharp edges just make me cringe at the thought of them poking in my skin.
     Sometimes life can be like a sharp edge that drives us into who we are to be.  We want that thorn removed but yet God says His grace is sufficient.  He uses our weaknesses to make us spiritually stronger.  I personally just have come to accept my weak traits without focusing my life around them the best I can.  I know there will come a day without any of them to bear.  What a glorious day that will be.
     Have you ever reached a point in life where you've tried and failed in all your efforts?  'What more can I do,' may have run thru your mind.  That is rock bottom.  The Rock of Ages is awaiting your awareness of Him for strength and all your needing at the time.  Our sense of helplessness is like a lighthouse light leading us to Him.
     When we hit the bottom, there is no where to go or look but up.
