The Jarrah tree found in
also known as “ironwood” is known to be so dense and hard that the termites
hate it. It is also widely used in
construction, for obvious reasons. It
takes skill, strength and determination to build with ironwood.
In life we are often faced with “jarrah” situations. There are daily challenges that happen where we see no end in sight and sometimes feel that they are impossible tasks to handle. These situations will seem so big that it hinders our vision to what is behind it. What is behind it, no matter how enormous is God, the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is omnipresent, deeply personal and all powerful. The Holy Spirit wants us to use Him, yes, in every jarrah situations that seem impossible to “cut.”
The most important thing is to ask for help as soon as it appears in front of us. To ignore such challenges is to allow it to grow and develop as sturdy and as hard as a Jarrah Tree. We are expected to ask for the assistance from the Holy Spirit. That is what He is there for. Jesus’ promise to be with us at all times is the Holy Spirit. Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.
Practice asking. Till my next rant… LOVE ONE ANOTHER! Love you, mean it!
