The Wall

A small child stands

facing a wall

he wishes to see what’s

on the other side

but is too small.

He tries to climb it

but there is no grip

jumping up he

touches the top

with his fingertips.

As his curiosity grows

he looks around

searching for an

implement to help

knock it down.

To his frustration

he finds nothing

suitable for the job

so he sits back down

and begins to sob.

His father who

is observing

from a distance,

smiles to himself at

his sons persistence.

He walks over and

lifts him up high

and for a second the

boy thinks he can fly.

Suddenly perched on

top of the wall,

he cries out in terror

afraid he might fall.

    There are walls, things in life that are in the way. We may feel as though we hit a brick Wall, but don’t give up. God sees and he knows. We must Stay persistent, don’t give up. Endurance during the process

    How many times do you try something before you give up? A child tries their hardest and may or may not succeed. Can we learn something from them?
