Light and Patience
We finally dug out from the ice storm that covered Tennessee Sunday night and Monday. The ice was three inches thick on the windshield this morning. As much as I tried I couldn’t get the wipers free without damaging them. I chipped away here, a little more there and finally decided the sunlight would have to do the rest. When I arrived at the office I parked with the windshield facing the sun and waited. Several hours later I began working on the wipers again. It still wasn’t easy but eventually they were ice free.
Sometimes in life we are trapped and long for freedom. We try and rid ourselves of those dark, cold things which hold us in their grips but cannot break free. Wisdom tells us that sometimes effort, willpower, desire isn’t enough. There are seasons, situations which require a willingness to let light shine on these cold, dark places and the patience to let freedom come to us.
