So, yesterday Wesley and I were taking a walk and we found ourselves strolling across the foot bridge by the All Sports park.
A couple of boys...friends...dashed by us on their bikes shouting some profanities and laughing with eachother about whatever boys laugh about. It was quite loud and a bit obnoxious to be blunt. Boys will be boys, right? I guess.
Then, right after them two young ladies about the same age passed us on their bikes. We overheard one of the blonde girls say to her friend, "Kelly, who am I?" Kelly responded, "You're my best friend." And they both giggled with contentment.
Then I had a thought:
"I'm so glad I'm a girl".

Sometimes things rise up to the surface that you thought you had dealt with…pains, fears, faults…they bounce up and greet you with an odd familiarity. You try to push them down but they bounce up none the less. You pray for God to come and and take these little torments away. You don’t want to deal with them. The Lord answers by allowing more of these little annoyances to bounce up from the depths. “Do these all belong to me?” you ask. The Lord holds on tight and tells you He is there to help you change. He doesn’t allow the pains, fears, and faults to sink, He allows them to rise. He asks you to face them and to learn how to deal with them. He asks you to surrender and to become more like Him.
