Pointy End of the Spear

Yup. Not always comfortable being an apostle of something different in our culture. Sometimes it’s distinctly uncomfortable, even heart rending — as in the case of one family in our midst who recently underwent some serious threats requiring major defensive action from misguided relatives. All in the name of the Lord, of course.

It helps to understand the role which God is allowing us to play. It’s really quite an honor. We are …

The Pointy End of the Spear

Think about it. When hurled, the spear-head …

  • Takes the full weight of the impact,
  • Is first on the scene,
  • May get bent up or even shatter in the process,
  • Carries the full weight of those who are to follow,
  • Penetrates the deepest into the target subject, and (here’s the honor)
  • Opens the way for all of them.

Consequently, it tends to get the most attention from it’s maker. It gets the most

  • Heating,
  • Beating,
  • Shaping,
  • Sharpening, and
  • Tempering

You might call it discipline. It’s tough and not very pleasant. Yes, a mark of acceptance and honor as children by the Smith involved, but just no fun at all while happening.

But a thousand years from now, the shaft will likely be gone while that same spearhead may well be remembered in picture books and histories, reproductions and museum exhibits.

Our Smith is creating us and preparing us for long term use! Yee-Haw! Ride the spear! :o :)

At the end of my rope!

So for those of you who don’t know we had a fire at our house friday before last. We had no where to turn or go so the state called the ONE family shelter for us and they didn’t want 7 people so the state instead of making any more calls took custody of our children. We now have to play nice with these people who have our kids. We (Becky and my self) are on the streets cause we don’t have a drug or alcohol problem no one will shelter us. You guys please pray that I don’t lose my cool. I mean I really want to hurt these people and it seems like there is no hope coming. I know God has a plan, but what is it? Yall just please pray for us in general.
