Politics...

If you are in Australia, no doubt you know who our leaders are....and their childish behaviour...here is my simple view...

When these 'key leaders' stop using their mouths, I may actually listen to what they have to say...

That is all :)

Squirming...

Do you ever feel like a child whose parent wants to hold you, but you just want to squirm out of their comforting arms....because you don't want to feel vulnerable and broken... the love is there, but you don't want to give in...

Standing in the Watch Tower

There are those of us called to duty in the Watch Tower - their calling is to stand alert in the towers overlooking the city... to protect and intercede for what they see below.

Sometimes this can be a place of heartbreak. It can be a place of joy.
It is hard when they see the lives being lived out below that could be so much better....or those who are falling into a pit, or those who have turned from the good path and are following the path to destruction...

The frustrating part is that those in the watch tower cannot really do anything. They often wish they could walk down to the person on the wrong path and warn them of what continuing on that path could do... but instead, they remember their calling. Their special calling from God.

The watch tower is a place where big things happen. God is there. Instead of allowing those in the towers to walk to the people below, he gives them the skills to intercede for them. They watch silently and pray hard. Most people will never see what happens in these towers, but My Oh My! They see the results - even if they don't know it!

Being in the watch tower can be lonely, but there are many towers in many locations, all skilfully positioned by the creator himself :) Those placed in these towers consider it a privilege. Their calling may come at a cost, but it far outweighs the results :)
