Superior Independence

Soul Snack 8/124 ... Superior Independence

Time reasonably available, distractions pleasantly absent. Softly, carefully and patiently she speaks to this struggling and fragile student. Lessons of protection and correct behaviour this student must learn.

Summoning all her well learned skills persistently, she explains. Brown eyes of trust peer up attentively. Little ears listen hopefully and dutifully. Yet, this lesson is still not received despite the willing efforts of both student and teacher. Humbled, she releases the little girl to play yet again.

How great is the Lord! How uncontained is His ability to bring progress to His people!

His independence from humans for success is our hope, His ability is our guarantee.

       neither are your ways my ways,"
       declares the LORD. Is 55:8
