This week, the house across the street sold. I happened to be up early one morning and saw the truck take one of their moving pods. I have to gush….it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. 😊 There’s a semi-truck, flatbed. And a metal contraption, like a skinny railed metal framed box.
The metal frame comes off the truck and the guy rolls it around the pod, cradling the pod.
Now, these pods are stinkin’ heavy. They have to weigh a gazillion tons. And the metal frame thing fits around it, and then hooks to the bottom of the pod with chains. The metal frame is mechanical, so it goes up and down and side to side to open and close and fit perfectly around that pod.
As I’m looking at the metal rail frame, knowing he’s going to try to lift that pod using only that metal frame, I laugh with doubt. Ain’t NO WAY that skinny railed little thing is going to lift that monstrosity of a pod…ESPECIALLY, while it’s FULL! It’s just not going to happen.
But it did! 😮
It lifted the pod right into the air, so that the pod was literally suspended in air, swaying back and forth in the wind (I just knew it would crash into the whole house!) while the semi-truck drove his flatbed underneath the pod, lowered the pod onto the truck, strapped it down, and drove off. No crashing involved.
The guy was an expert…he knew EXACTLY what he was doing. It took absolute PRECISION at every step, to be able to accomplish all that.
I don’t think I’ll EVER forget that. What I saw was incredible.
It makes me think of our lives as Christians and how the man represents God, the expert, absolute precision at every step with us. Every turn, every day, He’s precisely leading us where HE wants us to go to accomplish His will.
And how we are the rails…the skinny rails that everyone underestimates (LINK TO POST WHEN LIVE). I admit, I did NOT think those rails were STRONG ENOUGH to do that! But they were. Those skinny little rails lifted that entire thing and put it where it needed to go. We are like that too. We LOOK LIKE we can’t do something, but the power that God places inside us as Christians is something that can move a mountain.
It’s only through His strength inside us that can move a mountain. But He uses skinny little underestimated rails like us to accomplish HUGE things, in order that HE get the glory.
If you feel like you’re underestimated in your life…GOOD. You’re in the perfect position to be used by God and used by God you will be.
Just as those skinny rails were CREATED to move mountains, you and I, friends, were created to do the same!
When others laugh at you, let them, just know in your heart, that you were made for SO…MUCH…MORE!
