She’s a petite little thing, my beautiful girl, and more than anything she hopes never to be noticed by a professor. It’s funny that I’m this loud broadcaster and she’s the quiet, behind-the-scenes type. (I think God made her quiet because he knew I would need someone to absorb all these feelings and words of mine. Doesn’t every talker need a listener?)
Anyway, I have to pass on this funny story she told us.
It was an 8:00 a.m. class, and her 5’2” frame walked in behind a skyscraper basketball player. She sat down in her seat, and he sat down in front of her and a little to the side.
Then he turned around and said to her, So you can hide behind me, right?
She smiled at him and shook her head, Yes.
Don’t we all feel like this most of the time -small and inadequate? Well, I’m sure you know I do, if you’ve read my blog for more than three days in a row.
We need a buffer against all the hard and overwhelming things that come against us in one single day.
So there’s this verse:
“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” (Proverbs 18:10 NIV)
God’s character is a 6-feet-something point guard. (Matt, are you totally blown over by my impressive use of basketball lingo?)
So take your seat, you small little girl.
Right behind the big guy.
