The Glass and the Bee…

I watched a bee on a window yesterday… He flew in circles trying to figure out why he couldn’t get beyond the piece of glass in front of him…

To me… Well he could see so much possiblity and opportunity behind the glass… But then an invisible wall kept preventing him from actually accessing it…

Watching him reminded me about how I feel… About how I feel about idols… About ideas and beliefs I’ve allowed to control my life… About how I stopped listening to what’s new and unfamiliar…

And that’s when I realized… There must be more there… More idols I don’t see… More beliefs and ideas holding me back…

And I do believe we don’t experience everything at once… That the revelation of truth is a process… Because well we have to process it…

But I’m learning that I’ve allowed myself to buy a lie… A lie that tells me I am still a very insecure person… And that lie has become an excuse…

Living in insecurities was something I did 6-7 years ago… And though I’ve grown and tossed most of them… There are a few I still hang on to.. And in the midst of hanging onto them… Well I’ve allowed myself to believe I’m an insecure person…

It’s rather exhausting… And I do feel like that bee I watched yesterday… With so much cabability and confidence he tired to fly through the glass… But then this clear object kept him from what he truly wanted…

And I believe this is where I need to have grace with myself… It would be easy to get angry and continue to try and break down what’s in front of me… Or I can have grace and move away from what I’ve allowed to stand in my way…

I can simply go around it…

Stop paying the thoughts and beliefs I have on insecurity any attention… And just go around them…

And in that… Well I believe I’ll be able to just live in pursuit of what’s on the other side of the glass…
