“Down to earth”

At the first look of this “title” you might think that it might be a post relating to a person who is showered with the quality of “humility”. Sorry to disappoint you guys! You are in here for a surprise.

Yesterday as I left church I was really excited to go to my junior church where I teach kids (hihi.. hopefully they are not misguided because God is still in control of the  wrong lessons I teach too 🙂 and He corrects mysteriously in His ways!!)

Anyways, as I left church I was greeted by a church member who jokingly passed a comment on the way I walked . As I’m really tall I take big leaps not like the “big leap for mankind one” as in  Neil Armstrong on moon!! But still I walk fast and it is really difficult for people to catch up. Hmmm..  So after seeing his display of my giant steps and being publicly humiliated in front of my mother and friend, I hung my head low and I literally pleaded to him not to expose my “funny walk” again!

Well after escaping by a whisker I was continuing the same style, unaffected by those cold remarks I again started to follow my own ways!!! Oops.. ….until I fell “down to earth”!!@!@##$%^$^ TRAGEDY!! I couldn’t barely move . Nearby shopkeepers flooded around as I lay there flat on ground. God has a very strange sense of humor I guess. I had felt proud of the way I escaped public humiliation at church , but there.. I’m humiliated in front of total strangers. They are offering me help, pulling me by hand, asking me to rest, shake my feet, drink water, what not! At that time I obeyed everything  they said word by word. I wonder where my intellect went! Suddenly I’m a little kid who fell when she was playing!! Blaaah!!

Well to keep the story short, my leg got sprained and I have been advised complete bed rest for this week!

What a wonderful way in which God offered me rest!! I’m grateful to Him c’mon who doesn’t like to just “sit simply” on bed with a laptop, a good book to rest your head 😛 and of course what is life without an ipod . But I’m sad because I’ve to miss my kids at church this entire week for their VBS(Vacation Bible School).

Whatever be the reason this happened it did make me feel down for few hours where I felt I’m useless. Too much fun is bad right!

Still I’m able to appreciate the little baby steps I take now than the giant leaps..hihi :D… Because those little steps were always and will always be the foundation. Maybe God wanted me to fashion my walk in the way He wanted it to be. Maybe He is telling me the way I did it might be really unsafe. I want to believe that alone is the purpose behind my historic fall.

My only prayer this time

“Dear God ,

Hold my hand as I learn to walk once again depending on Your strength.Make my feet strong to withstand the thorns and the heat on the way. Guide my path with Your light that can cast down all the darkness in my life.

Lord, have your way in me! “

So cheer up if you’ve become or have fallen  “down to earth” because God is going to lift you up to higher places! Its always good to refresh your  basics once in a while. Ground is the best place to start I guess! Return to the roots people (not with an accident !! :P)baby-steps
