He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying,“My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” – Matthew 26:39
So last weekend, we rented the latest in the Hobbit movies. I loved it. Really, you should see it.
Imagine my surprise to find myself right there in the middle of the movie! Seriously, I’m a star! I was kicking booty and taking names.
The only reason I recognized myself was the fact that my head topped the Mohs scale of hardness charts. I knew right then that I was looking in a mirror. Tusks and all.
**(I come in at about 1:10 and go till 1:30…. an awesome 20 seconds of screen-time)
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. – Galatians 6:9
There’s no doubt my stubborn will has at times been the only reason I keep going.
And so as I pick up my battle axe and get ready to head-butt, I will pray that my hard-headedness may never be used to stand in the way of the will of the Almighty. May I ever be submissive to my King.
But when the enemy ambles over, all big and awkward, may I knock him to his knees without missing a beat. When ugly is charging me for all he’s worth, may I meet him head-to-head, assured of whose victory is already secured.
Are you hard-headed, too? You probably are, seeing as you’re still here, still kicking, still praising.
From one hard headed dwarf to another, “Fight On!”
Holy God, thank you for a noggin that withstands what the devil throws at me. Thank you for Your strength, so that I never have to rely on my own. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
