Boxing out is a basketball term. It’s a type of basketball maneuver in which a player positions his body against an opponent, in an optimal space on the floor between the opponent and the basket, in order to secure a rebound.
I tend to utilize this play, “Boxing Out” God when life overwhelms me. I don’t feel like praying because, well frankly, He hasn’t answered my prayer. Or my heart is too broken to pray. Without choice, my heath issues don’t afford me the energy to pray. Whatever the reason, I perform like the basketball players, boxing out God and allowing isolation in. I attempt to let my heart rebound, but it is impossible to bounce back without God.
Isolation is one of the worst walls we can build around our hearts. True, we all need time alone away from the world, but the last thing we need is time away from God.
When we isolate, there are seven must dos in order to recover your heart. I will be sharing those with you over the next few weeks. In the meantime, Camp on how you either box Him out, or let Him in.
