Locust trees & Feeling Miffed: THE CONNECTION

Locusts are a great hard wood for fires, 
have fragrant long flower bunches
in the spring... 
    and thorns. 
Young branches have tiny bitty protrusions 
you can mock as useless defense-- 
much like a young kitten's claws 
that can't hurt you. BUT.. they grow long, hard, actually dangerous: 

Can cut deep into your skin- causing blood to flow fast.
FEELING MIFFED is a joke I've used: 
"I may get miffed a lot, 
              but I seldom get actually angry." 
Today cutting down various length locust thorns NEGLECTED for months, 
growing in far end of yard, I realized: 

We each   "invite" dangerous sin 
by not cutting down the little miff feelings... 
 before they grow in time to actual   FURY. 

What does LORD God say ??    James 1:15 b:
   "...sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth DEATH."

It's funny on some days, not others! --  how often I have to go to Windows Network Diagnostics to re-set my connection in this area
where cable & all those fancy offers of Fast Internet don't come
as far as my part of the countryside. YET >>
98% of the time, somehow WND fixes the problem that stumped me. 

Now if only I went to the LORD God that fast when things in my life feel like I'm getting || BLOCKED || by HUGE WALLS....

Yet: God PROMISES that those who honor Him can be excited to know He has special plans for us.... for YOU and me:
Jeremiah 29:11-14
Psalm 139
Logic of a Great Creator...

God tells us to TRUST Him... 
God promises WISDOM if we ask....  
James 1: 5-7

So... When we're blocked by walls:
Just pray for God's will to be done. Even Jesus did that!

What does LORD God say ??  
Ephesians 3: 19 and 20 >>
... know the love of Christ which passes knowledge;
that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to Him who is able to do 
exceedingly abundantly above 
all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, ...."

To HIM be the Glory. Even when we feel blocked in by walls.
