as my heart speaks … of a bump


A bump could be an unseen elevation from a blind vantage point that can cause damage or harm… yet, it can be a good thing.

In the busyness of life, we become trapped in a routine that needs to be accomplished before getting into yet another conventional circumstance.  Experiencing a “bump on the road”  can thwart us from becoming mere zombies who are caught up in the trap of the usual.

A bump,

…awakens us from the most passionate desire to succeed
…reminds us of the more important things we have forgotten
…shakes us to feel again
… jolts us to realize that we are not alone
…makes us stop everything so we can look up
…allows us to simplify our lives

A bump, after all, is a good thing.
