Oh it is really just too cute! Honey bear really plumps up in winter and the fat rolls are just adorable and the more I scrunch them, the more he eats! Lol! Well now, its not like he has a complex about it, no he considers himself quite the 'brekker' (tough guy), especially as he passes by the mirror with a fist pump! Oops, no sorry, that's Garfield!
But Honey the brekker was no where to be seen this morning. After the usual, wake mommy up routine, that he and Ginger perform, I opened the door and they both went out. Honey however heard something that gave him a fright and he came charging back inside and up the stairs, and nothing I said could get him out again. Ag shame!
We all have things in life that we are afraid of, things that send us back into our cave, hiding and waiting for the danger to pass, and I'm not just talking about physical danger but emotional stresses as well. Some try to deny their fears and pretend that they don't exist. Unfortunately this only makes the situation worse because when we are then faced with the harsh reality that bad things do happen, our fears are multiplied.
Can I make an alternative suggestion? Face them, acknowledge their existence but then bring those fears into subjection to the knowledge of Christ. Scripture tells us the following:
2 Corinthians 10:5-6King James Version (KJV)
“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
In Christ we can have the strength to look our fears in the face and then confess the Lordship of Christ over them! God will turn your fearful situation for good and for His Glory! Hang on to that promise and don't let go!
