So Many Times, I Am A Brick

If you noticed my post from yesterday, you saw that I was frustrated and angry over losing my hard work. I was not enjoying my lap top. At all.

I look back at the incident and have to laugh. My post from yesterday was going to be on perspective. Isn't that funny? I thought I could write something worthwhile on perspective, and when I lost my post to cyberspace... I lost my temper. Not a very good perspective, huh?

I have a feeling I am not the only one that has those type of moments.

I wish I had it all together. Oh, how I wish! But...I don't. I admit it.

I am trying to work on perspective. Two steps forward and one step back. That is the way it always seems to work out. Life is all about the lessons, isn't it? What does God want me to learn today? Am I malleable in the Potter's hand? Or am I stubborn and hard like a brick? Can he gently smooth  my rough edges, or does He need to hammer away at me, until I soften?

Sigh. So many times I am a brick.

I am so grateful that God is patient with me. He is compassionate to me and forgives me, my human frailties.

Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new EVERY morning; great is Your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23



  1. Dawn, I have been there a few times myself. Sometimes, it takes God throwing a brick at me to get my attention. If we could only be as patient as God is with us. Blessings!

  2. I’m here from Ann’s I know it’s Saturday – but I’m still playing catch up – there were so many “Thank you” posts to read I didn’t even start reading the Wednesday linky until today.

    From a fellow brick – I say Amen. If we stay moldable we don’t break and chip – a really really interesting thought. {smile}

    Thank you for this today.

    God Bless and keep you and all of yours
