Bricks and Tents


So many walls.


Built so tall.
A brick at a time.
Protection.
Safety.
Hiding.

We are very good at it, you know.
Building up those walls around our hearts.
We insist we're doing it for our own good.
After all, we've been hurt before, right?
And we're done with that.

Let Him break them down.
Yes, I know it's too hard for you to handle on your own.
But He never asks you to handle anything alone!
Just step back, stop lugging those bricks around, and surrender your safety.
Expand your tents and allow Him to bring new people and experiences in!

Stop hiding.
Start living.


Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes.
~Isaiah 54:2
~~~
He will bring down your high fortified walls and lay them low; he will bring them down to the ground, to the very dust.
~Isaiah 25:12
