Ever know people who build up walls? You know, the kind of people that refuse to let anyone in or any love out? I just hate that.
Well, I must confess that many times I erect picket fences.
Picket fences are so much less threatening than walls. Everything looks all welcoming and friendly. And I just stand at my fence and wave a nice little wave at you and a "How have you been?" and "Aren't you just so sweet" and so forth. But the truth of the matter is that you still aren't invited inside. And I can stand protected on the other side and grit my smiling teeth at those that I feel threatened by while waving my ever-jiggling arm at everyone and things just look so fine.
But that isn't how it is supposed to be. So I am going to try to swing open the gate first, then hopefully I can kick down the pickets and live the wide-open, fearless life God has always intended for me.
