Have you ever wondered what the tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9) looked like? Although I know it was impossible for the people back then to have built something as picturesque and magnificent as the skyscrapers in Dubai, I do like the idea of thinking that they might have inspired the Dubai architects!

“The fear of rejection is one of our deepest human fears. Biologically wired with a longing to belong, we fear being seen in a critical way. We’re anxious about the prospect of being cut off, demeaned, or isolated. A big part of our fear of rejection may be our fear of experiencing hurt and pain.

I see so many people who just shrug their shoulders and say non-gallantly “It’s not my responsibility” I’ve been challenged these last few weeks on responsibility. What is your Christian responsibility? To put it plainly: what is your CREATION responsibility? Isn’t just to easy to say "It wasn’t me"? Pondering the meaning of the word itself, I realized I don’t really understand it completely. So trusty dictionary open I read:

God knows when He sees potential…and Jesus saw potential in Peter! He saw something in this fisherman that very few other people could see. But He did not look at Peter in the flesh, He saw what he could become in spirit! Because if Jesus only looked at the outer person, He would have only seen a dirty, sweaty, smelly man who works with fish the whole day. A man who leaves the shore early in the morning to go and sit in his boat until late afternoon, hoping to catch something.

I am one of those people who admire great architecture. I can spend hours walking in and around buildings, gliding my fingertips over the stone and think of the song "All in all, it's just another brick in the wall..." But I appreciate the vision of the pioneer and the blood and sweat mixed with the mortar as the building rose to it's height. With today's modern technology it's a lot easier to construct a building, but back in the day... it was manual labour to construct these beautiful…

While unpacking the contents of my shopping basket, I complimented the cashier on the bright pink she had woven into her braids. With a shy smile she thanked me. In silence we carried on with our “retail transaction” until she suddenly asked me: “My boyfriend is upset with me. What should I do?”

Lately it seems like the “bad news” just escalates and grows to spread like a malicious incurable cancer. I want to clamp my hands over my ears and run away when I hear the words “Have you heard...?” I try not to read the newspaper headlines paraded on lamp poles when I drive past. I feel like those three little monkeys: See no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil.

For the first ever inspirational for this blog, I wanted to publish something spectacular! Weaving words together to inspire and encourage. I prayed, pondered and scribbled, but nothing seemed to be just right.  And I realized the message I want to carry over, cannot be said better than the Words of the Word itself - Psalm 139. www.women-of-the-word.weebly.com

“From a distance the world looks blue and green, and the snow-capped mountains white. From a distance, there is harmony, and it echoes through the land. From a distance we are instruments marching in a common band. Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace. They're the songs of every man.” – Partial Lyrics, From a Distance

We all crave to receive revelation. Sometimes we even desire something more dramatic and more complicated than what has been shared before.
