My Little Corner of the World - In Other Words
Corners are funny things. They must be interesting to us, because we have quite a few sayings that we associate with them.
"I believe she has turned the corner." This usually means someone has made some noticeable improvement or progress in either a long-standing dilemma or illness or project. Something like that.
And then there is the saying about "blind corners" as in "You never know what's coming at you around a blind corner." True, but then again, I rarely know what's coming at me anyway, even on the straight-aways.
And, of course, the old standby, "He has certainly painted himself into a corner this time." Uh-huh, been there, done that. Put myself in a position such that no matter which way I walked, I was going to make a mess.
So today, I am really relieved that He created the corner in the first place, that He knows what is around it, coming at me, how to get me out of one I have boxed myself into, or how to help me turn the corner.
I have long known He was the God of light and dark, up and down, and this and that; but it is good to be reminded that He is also the God of corners. My little corner of the world is better for it. Hope your is, too.
