Today B shares a 'not so lovely' photo of herself. She is in a dry place. B isn't flashing any pearly whites here. Actually she is doing the opposite. The grimace on her face gives you a hint into some of her growing up years. It isn't really the look she prefers to post today, but she is following the leader on this. As her friend Kermit the frog says, "It's not easy being green." And B, the turtle would add, "It's not always fun sharing 'the green' either!"
Meet B, the desert turtle. This turtle's terrain has not always been a lush garden, full of signs and wonders. Her path has sometimes been rocky, tiresome, and even lonely. B admits she felt abandoned in the desert. She did not raise her hand to travel this course, but found it a necessary route as she followed Jesus. B was tempted at times to compromise her walk in the wilderness. She questioned if she was cut out to do this. She heard another voice calling to her in her desert time. He cast doubt on God's words spoken to B. She considered his words. They sounded something like this. 'Would God really 'rock' someones world like you B? Who do you think you are? We both know you are not worthy of 'rocking'. If you continue walking.... I will b publishing photos of you when you were horrid . B, do YOU understand?'
In the desert, B faced a dilemma. Threats were hurled at her. This was a test. A big test. What would B do? What would you do? Would B continue walking to the oasis waiting to supply strength for the journey? Or would she shrink back in her shell, into her old patterns? B remembered the Lord's words to her.
Blessed is she who has believed what the Lord has said to her will b
accomplished. Luke 1:45
The view from above was clear. The Son was with B. He left His mark on her head. B was not alone, no matter how her surroundings looked. No weapon formed against her would prosper. B believed and she encouraged herself in the Lord. She started flapping her lips again repeating these words, "Keep walking by faith B. The Lord will b proved faithful and true to His word. "
