Small Town America

Small Town America


Bridges are a good way of getting from one place to another.  Usually they cross over water, or train tracks, traffic patterns, or maybe just a small stream.  They can be composed of everything a board over a ditch to the Golden Gate Bridge that reaches across vast areas of water in California.  We  have small bridges, like Tindle Bridge over the Sandusky River or the Chesapeake Bay Bridge heading from Delaware to Washington, DC.

The most interesting bridge I have ever crossed is the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel.  It is considered to be one of the engineering wonders of the world.  It runs for 17.6 miles across the ocean, between Virginia Beach and Cape Charles, Virginia.  This bridge includes 2 tunnels that run 40 to 50 feet under the bay.  They even have a place to stop part way across this bridge to buy food an souvenirs.  It’s quite amazing.


Sometimes we come up to a bridge that is closed because of flooding or is in need of repairs.  Then we have to find another way to cross to the other side. When we come to bridges in our life, we can be sure that God will always make a way for us to get where He wants us.

With some bridges, it is best to burn them behind us.  I don’t mean actual stone and iron bridges; but bridges in our minds that allow us to go back and forth on any given principle.  God provides mental bridges to help us make transitions to a new way of life.  These bridges should be destroyed lest we go back to a place of spiritual death.  In the spiritual realm, bridges are used to move us from one level of matuirty to the next, so why do we need to keep them in place?  That only gives opportunity for us to move backwards instead of fowards.

I have always loved bridges of any size and style.  They are interesting and exciting to drive over.  Bridges are just a part of life, they are not to be feared, but rather embraced for their help in our travels.
