Yup, I know--the title says hedges and this ain't no hedge, as they say! This is one of the things I see on my walks---Cyprus knees--so cool don't ya thing?! I took this on a gray day ;-)
I called the title of the post hedges because I have been reading in Job and in Job 1:9-10 it says, "Then Satan answered the LORD and said, 'Does Job fear God for no reason? Have you not put a hedge around him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. 11 But stretch out your hand and touch all that he has, and he will curse you to your face. 12 And the LORD said to Satan, Behold, all that he has is in your hand. Only against him do not stretch out your hand. So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.'
I am just glad--that God does have hedges around us and that anything that comes into our lives is sifted through His hands. It only comes by his permission. This gives me peace in the midst of the trials! I thank him for Job because it lifts a little of the veil and shows me many different reasons for trials and at the same time the need to trust God even when we have no understanding of the WHY.
