Woman, do you ever feel like a dead tree, even though you know God has filled you with living water and knowledge/wisdom that needs to be shared? Well, be encouraged. Do what's necessary to go from feeling like a dead tree to BEing/sharing the fruitful, flowering tree that God has made you and wants to contiue to make you.

July 14-16-2022 Boundaries - Walls, Fences, Gates.
The difference between a fence and a wall. Just because I'm looking at, listening to and receiving your conversation, doesn't mean I'm going to let you in. It's not a wall. I'll listen. It's a fence. You can stand at the fence and talk but I don't know if I'll let you in.
I have put up walls where I should and shouldn't have. Past experiences have led me to put up impenetrable walls to keep out some people and to try to forget some places. I don't plan to be hurt by those people or places ever again. You've seen walls. They usually remain for a long time. Walls aren't as easy to take down. They require heavy tools, a vehicle hitting it purposely or by accident, or a strong storm. I've heard testimonies of people who removed personal walls because a personal storm acutally helped them make the decision to tear down self-constructed wall. Lord, may I never have to be snatched into a mindset that forces me to tear down my walls. Heal me that I may tear them down purposely and without pain.
WALL - Brick - Can't see over it or through it. Hard to hear through it. Don't even try.
continuous, vertical, brick or stone structure that encloses or divides an area of land.
* (Are we humans not ‘land’? Yes, we are. Dirt. Created from a human who was created from dirt.)
to protect or lend some privacy
to hold back
form a periphery of a room or building
*SOLID, can’t see through -
“Don’t look over here.”;
“You can’t climb this easily so don’t try.”)
*(Some situations require a WALL, People.)
I have fences around major areas of my life just letting others know "Don't go there. It's not hidden but I'm not giving any explanations either. It is what it is. You don't know what the Lord told me. You haven't lived with that person. You haven't had to deal with them at work or in a group. I got my fence up around that area. Ask permission to enter."
FENCE - Chainlink - Can see through it. Can probably climb over it. Can hear through it. You will be allowed to stand on the other side of the fence and have a conversation, but that doesn't mean you'll be allowed to enter the yard.
Wood - Can't see through it very well, except through the small slits between the boards. Can hear through it. Can have a conversation through it, but you're not be allowed to see the person on the other side and may not be allowed to enter.
a barrier, railing, or other upright structure, typically of wood or wire, enclosing an area of ground to mark a boundary, control access, or prevent escape.
*(are we humans not ‘ground’? Yes, we are. Dirt.)
“You can look through, but this is mine.”
“You can see what we have, but don’t climb over or come through the latched gate.”
“You can talk to me over or through the fence, but stay on that side.”
“You can’t see what’s over here. Yes, you can knock it down since it’s hard to climb,
but you can’t see what you might meet on the other side when you knock it down, so
don’t even try.”
*Metal – (4’ white – like neighbors)
sturdy, but low enough to climb or go around because it doesn’t go to the end of the property or connect to the house – meaning – “Come over or around. I don’t mind because I know you understand my boundaries and will not overrun or overuse the privilege of access.”
You may enter this part of my life, but only through a certain path. Don't climb over. Don't dig under. Don't go snooping around asking other people, searching, questioning, surmising, taking information any way you can get it. Ring the bell for me to open the gate. Lift the latch that doesn't have a lock on it. In other words, ask. Ask me. You can enter but via a specific route and with my permission.
a hinged barrier used to close an opening in a wall, fence, or hedge.
Wall, it’s a door. Knock or ring. If no answer, leave.
Wire – unlatch and come on in.
Wood – unlatch and come in, at your own risk, because you can’t see what you
may meet on the other side
Lock attached – keep out. Call, ring, knock or leave.
