Am I A Pillar? Or In Need Of An Alter?
A pillar stands strong. A pillar supports. We as people can take on this role. Many of us do. We have the choice of kneeling at the alter. Or being a pillar. Both can be done at the same time, depending on what you are going through. An alter is a place usually set in a church environment consisting of a carpeted platform, designed for getting on your knees and praying to God for change. Be it yourself or a love one. Or life in general. A place where one can offer a sacrifice to the lord. "Lord I ask you to help me with my anger issues, I sacrifice this fault of mine oh Lord for you to bless me and my family so that I may show them love and kindness". Thus the saying I cast my burdens to the Lord here at the alter. The question to ask oneself is "Am I representing a pillar today?" or "Am I in the need of kneeling at the proverbial alter?" Both of which are choices in our lives. Psalm 5:3 My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord in the morning I will direct my prayer to you, and I will look up. Ephesians 6:18-19 Pray on all occasions. With this in mind, be alert that whenever you open your mouth, words may be given to you so that you will fearlessly make known that God is your strength.
