The past few weeks have been quite interesting for my family. Last week our neighbor’s dogs managed to enter our fence and attacked my wife’s cat, Tucker. Our dog Beau tried to fend them off, but it was too late. Tucker is now recovering from multiple lacerations and a dislocated elbow.
In addition to this, some other things that have been going on outside of my family that have left me and little down and even a little bitter. I’ve been a follower of Christ for a few years now, and I definitely know that bitterness, anger and the like are NOT fruits of the Holy Spirit, but these are part of my old nature that I struggle with quite often. I struggle and fall into those so easily…
Finally yesterday morning I resolved to pray about this bitterness and let it go. That’s when the blessings started. After I’d been a few hours at work, my neighbor’s insurance called to ask a few questions. Later they called to say that they’re covering Tucker’s veterinarian bills. That was only one of the blessings!
I find myself in awe of God’s handiwork. I know that he’ll provide, but all too often I worry. I know that God can be trusted, that he’s always faithful, but all too often I live like I have to do this on my own.
Again I find God having to remind me of these simple concepts:

  • Trust God.
  • Forgive.
  • Pray when you have trouble doing those things.
