I finally finished this book:
My mom gave it to me months ago, and I started reading it months ago. It really was a good read, but I’m easily distracted I guess.
When she first gave it to me I decided to read it solely because she said it was good. I didn’t really feel fearful about the future, or fearful of anything for that matter. Maybe I’ve just gotten used to “uncertain times”. Ha.
A group of ladies at church are reading this, and I bought it so I could read along…thinking to myself, “What is it with the fear issue? Is the Lord trying to tell me something?”
If He is I’m still not certain what it is.
To top it off, last night, our dog Lulu was just bark-bark-barking in the backyard. I sent Duke out to check on her, and he came back laughing. He reported that Lulu was trapped in her invisible fence…
…the fence that she hasn’t been in for a few weeks…
…the fence that’s connected to the collar that she hasn’t worn in a month…
…the fence that’s connected to the collar that had a dead battery for a month before she stopped wearing it.
So, Duke went over to her, made a clicking noise with his mouth, and she ran happy and free.
Fear kept her trapped.
Fear of something that wasn’t even there….something that was long gone.
Fear of a situation she had walked into herself.
I hope I’m not like Lulu…and if I am I hope that the Lord will snap me out of it.
So, I’m praying that Lord will show me any hidden fear I have…or maybe that he’ll use me to snap the collar off of someone else.
Until then I’m resting on the fact that God holds yesterday, today, and tomorrow, and His promises are sure.
Just some thoughts from the shade.
Resting in the truth.
