Recently, I was in Florida for a wedding. It was wonderful to run some early morning miles, soak up some sun, and sit by the water, I just wish I knew more about one tiny issue.
The issue is a little bug that people call “no-see-ums”. Why? Because you can’t see them, but they sure see YOU!
Apparently, they are small and have a big appetite for exposed skin. (Like my legs!)
OH MY WORD, do these bites itch! I’ve been putting anti-itch cream on, and it does help. But they itch like poison ivy!
Here’s the lesson I’ve learned. While running, I was on the lookout for big things like gators in the pond, snakes, and getting pooped on by birds. I was never prepared for no-see-ums.
Many times, we’re on the lookout for the big, dangerous things in life. But, we often miss those small things that don’t seem like a big deal. But, if you don’t pay attention, they’ll bite ya!
Is there something in your life that’s currently a ‘no-see-um’?
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.1 Peter 5:8 NIV
Avoid no-see-ums. Go make a difference. Always run by faith. Oh, and I’d love for you to subscribe for more encouragement!
