Bend Your Knees
Long ago my husband and I had a 21’ deep V boat with a center console. We live in south Louisiana so we would go fish at the rigs in the gulf. Can I tell you, sometimes I got more waterlogged in that boat than taking a shower. The waters would become unruly, id gets nervous. I couldn’t sit down because the bouncing would hurt my back. My husband told me to stand up. When you see we are about to hit the wave bend your knees. Sure enough, it worked. I saw the storm coming and knew what to do. Bend my knees.
My husband used finish sheetrock and I painted. Using stilts to do high work is very productive. He told me if you ever start to fall make sure you bend your knees. I’m thankful I never fell. I knew if I did I better bend my knees.
Today, I see a lot of storms, diseases, unemployment, death, divorce, and fear. I’m sure you could name some more. Yet the advice my husband gave me is true for all the above, bend your knees, this time in prayer.
O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
