What are you walking into?

Sunday 27 March, 2011

Have you ever walked along a beach when there is a sports game going on and suddenly found that you’ve been knocked in the head by a stray ball? I sure have and I can tell you that firstly, I didn’t see it coming and secondly, it really hurt!

We are all walking somewhere in life, be it into a conversation, a work environment, a friendship or a home. We live in the midst of ever changing situations and circumstances. Hopefully, most of the situations and conversations we walk into are positive and constructive, however, there are also times when they are not.

Proverbs 22:3 (MSG) says, “A prudent person sees trouble coming and ducks; a simpleton walks in blindly and is clobbered.”

A Girl of Wisdom chooses to walk through life with open eyes and ears so that she is able to respond appropriately to the situations around her. She is the kind of girl who looks ahead at circumstances, even if for a brief moment, and is able to get a sense of what is happening. This may be through seeing people’s body language, hearing a change in tone or even a general feeling that something is not quite right.

Let’s be women who recognise those moments in life when we need to “duck” and avoid trouble.

    I find that I actually enjoy life more when I am alert to my surroundings! I don’t know how people manage to avoid accidents when they walk about plugged into a iPlayer or sending text messages.
