A realization...

I realized about how much people start thinking about themselves when they hurt themselves. This also goes for me too. I could think I can stand everything, just becuase i've got hurt in a few ways. Like, the other day I got a slash on my chest. It is in the shape of a half of a hoof of a horse. And then a few days before that I was making a youtube video with one of my friends. Only, while doing a stunt on a tree, I missed the branch that I was supposed to catch and swing to another lower one. Only i missed, and found myself dropping in an air sheet.


Down, Down I went. I landed in a terrible position on a sharp upward pointing root. I hurt my tailbone, but I need to realize that at the height I fell, I could have had a lot of worse injuries. So I think that we need to realize something. That God is a wonderfully lover as well as a protector. It wasn't because of me that I landed how I did. I'm not fighting to find work just for food. I'm not faced with having to move out of my house because I couldn't pay for it, like my neighbor had too. It's very easy to take for granted all that we have. I've noticed this, and I'm very happy that I have a soveriegn protector in my heavenly father. That just came into my mind, and I had to give out.

Why thank you. It does seem I have a knack for hurting myself.
