The Watered Soul: Angles, Arrows, & Awards

Angles, Arrows, & Awards

I remember studying angles in geometry class. Some were narrow, many were wide and others were right angles. Each blogger has their own unique angle. According to Wikipedia the world wide web is infested with with over 156 million public blogs. Now that’s a bunch of talking and writing going on. But what determines the right angle for you? Some blogs focus in on a narrow selection of topics, while others have a wide scope. What’s your blogging angle? Is it acute or obtuse?

Today, I  jump in with more than 500 other bloggers into the triathlon of blogging challenges—the A to Z Challenge. As with any course, each blogger will face it their unique way. Throughout the challenge The Watered Soul’s angle will remain narrow in it’s focus on sharing inspirational truths I learn as I journey throughout this course of life.

Whether you like to swim around and discover broad topics or prefer the calm waters of a small pond of ideas, you are bound to discover some new blogs through the many participants.


As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Psalms 127:4

This passage of scripture came to mind today. I don’t have any children and uhmm you can’t really call 30’s young but I walked away with some fresh insight. An arrow is meant to hit a target and if the one who is shooting the arrow is mighty and/or skillful, He has the ability to reach his goal. Children are fruit that is produced. A parent’s job is to help aim that child in the direction that it should go. Our relationship status or family roles do not exempt us from birthing out or producing something of purpose in our lives. It does not matter if we are birthing blogs, books, poems, art or clothing lines, we have to use the skills we have been given to aim it in the proper direction.

Is there something in your life that needs to be readjusted?


On another note I’d like to take the opportunity to thank those who have so graciously bestowed awards to this blog.

The awards are deserved!

Math! Geometry! I'm getting a cold sweat just thinking about me, Jesus! Isn't God good? He's given us all the tools to walk the straight path and to make all adjustments. I need all the help I can get!

It's nice that everyone has their own unique angles. I admit I enjoy seeing everyone's different perspective.
