Pastor's Corner Another"Under the Floor" Lesson When we left me last week I was laying on my back under the floor of our new church building trusting God to deal with my fears, but I was soon to learn another very helpful lesson for life. As I began to drill holes in the floor joists and nail up the clips for the pipe, that space that helped me deal with my fears became a real "pain in the neck7 You see, I was having to hold my head and shoulders up like doing a crunch while nailing and drilling. Not too bad at first, but after drilling 15 holes and nailing up 30 clips I'd had enough. So I wiggled out from under there perplexed by my new frustration. For the next couple of days I pondered my problem and returned with some other guys from church to attack the project with renewed energy. But after just a few minutes my shoulders were already cramping and I knew I would have to quit soon if I couldn't find a solution. I knew I couldn't hold myself up to do the work and that's when the second phrase in Proverbs 3:5 came to mind, "Lean not on your own understanding." I had already tried several different positions and contortions to hold myself up and none had worked very well. And I just couldn't come up with anything to lean my head and shoulders on that would work. So while giving my shoulders a rest I poured out my problem to my heaven/y Father. I described my frustration and lack of solutions and asked for His help. Then I remembered an old couch that was given by Wayne Freedman to our church that had vinyl cushions that would be slick and could slide on the plastic under the church. I climbed out and grabbed those cushions, gave two to the other guys and climbed under to see how they would work. They were just the right height and slid around beautifully so that we were able to stay under there for 5 hours and get a lot of work done. So I learned to lean not on my own understanding but God's. By the way, my neck and shoulders were very grateful.
