All Shook Up




I kept my daughter's and son-in-law's dog today while they are packing to move. Maile is usually a very obedient dog. She's not allowed on the furniture, but today I had to hall her off the sofa 3 times. She senses something is changing and she's flustered.

As I was looking at her, God reminded me how much we are like Maile. God wants to lead us to a new place and we're flustered and fighting against Him. He's going to move us to a new place and we're afraid.

Trust. That's what He wants. Trust that God has our best interest at heart.

Who's all shook up?

Well, that's a good question.

Leann,
Oh my goodness, I love Maile! I'm a major dog person (I have 2)so my heart goes out to her during this transition.
Your faith correlation hit me between the eyes. God spoke to me through your post. Why is trusting God's timing so hard to rest in?
Anyway, thank you! I needed it.
