#Stems ~ Meet The Blockers!

Blocks! Road blocks! Stumbling blocks! Whether items, situations or people, they all serve a purpose to stand in the way of forward motion, to slow momentum or to halt progress.  Unlike the function of building blocks, it’s important to the blocks that form a family, fictionally known as ‘The Blockers, that we are restrained, constricted, restricted, immobile, and bound.  Their ultimate desire is that we not only stumble, but that we completely fall down in defeat of what we’re trying to accomplish or conquer. Although these blockers may not see it in this light, they can create spiritual strongholds in their attempt to provide the blockage–interfering with what God has intended for us.  What they don’t know, is that no matter their plan or strategic and well-thought out moves, there is no way that they can block what God has already predestined for us!

Even though members of the Blockers family sometimes get a little glimmer of light, indicating that the path lined with malice, spite, and sheer evil will end at their destination, there is a STOP sign! At that point, I believe that God steps in, removes the big old boulder in the road, takes the wheel, then turns the vehicle in the direction that He has already planned and pre-routed for us. The ole Blockers are right there, front and center, to witness the re-navigation. Why??….. Because it’s imperative that they get to witness His power, and to see how easily and flawlessly He takes over and controls the situation.  One by one, they step away from the vehicle, fully recognizing Who is the ultimate authority.

So, this STEM is to convey this message: Know that no matter what, God meticulously makes a way for us to become the person who He intended us to be.  He marvelously crafts an outline for us to persevere; to achieve; to succeed; to win! It was He who formed us–who made us who we are, as beautifully stated in one of my favorite scriptures, Psalms 139. What we must remember, is to walk in the light of the path that only He has paved for us.  What God has for us, it is just that… For Us! Absolutely no one can block that divinely navigated journey to get there—not even those conniving, manipulative Blockers! Their stumbling blocks are meant to deter us, however they are merely our soul’s stepping stones.  Keep stepping.  Keep walking in Faith!

13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.

~Psalms 139:13-14

Peace and Blessings,
