oh the spikes of life!

often we KNOW they are there so we try to avoid them…
walk around them.

sometimes they SNEAK up when we least expect it…
popping out of the ground RIGHT in front of us.

they can even be adorned… disguised to look innocent & pretty…
all the while it was the devil holding the stem.

hurtful… painful… disappointing… they ARE.

the spikes of life are inevitable.
some are WAY bigger than others…
some will stick & stay around a while…
some will knock us to our knees.

the thing about it…  we will ALL face them…
large… small… simple… life CHANGING… they will be there.

convinced… and learning more each day…
with HIS glove… HIS armor… HIS grace…
we can reach in… reach out… stand up… BE STILL…
for there is no thorn that will defeat us!
