Tail Feather: Turtle Crossing


This week’s Tail Feather is brought to you by Patty Wysong. I got so inspired when I read this short devotional I had to share her insight with my readers I pray you are all as blessed as I was.

You got to stick your neck out sometimes to get to where God wants you to be. Holding up in your shell makes you an easy target for the enemy to come along and well you’ll get the picture. Now on with this week’s Tail Feather.

Florida Redbelly Turtle Pseudemys nelsoni

It’s the time of year when the turtles come out and we often see them crossing the road.

Just the other day there was a little box turtle three-quarters the way across the road and he was just sitting there, hiding in his shell. He was so close to safety, but he couldn’t know that with his head pulled in like it was.

So many times I do the same thing. I get three-quarters the way through the hard time or problem and then pull into my shell in an attempt to forget what’s going on, or to protect myself from perceived danger.  All I’m actually doing is making myself sit in the situation longer, and leaving myself in a place where I’m more likely to be run over.

If that little box turtle would just come out of his shell and get back to walking, he’d have a better chance of making it across the road safely than he does all pulled into his shell.
