i must do a lot of country driving because yes...this is yet another post inspired by roadkill. i am sincerely sorry.
when a possum is scared by a oncoming car what does it do? it hits the pavement and plays dead. this is a great strategy when dealing with certain predators. but cars don't care if the possum is dead or not...and there is always another car coming.
so...don't be like the possum. in times of trials don't lay down and play dead. don't give in to temptation. don't give up and lie there waiting for the predator to go away. because our enemy doesn't care if you are dead or not...and i'm not trying to discourage you...but there is always another trial coming. if it's not your finances, it's your health. if it's not your marriage, it's your parenting. if it's not your job than it's your ministry or your home. always another trial off in the distance. so...don't lay down and play dead...
GET UP AND RUN LIKE CRAZY!!!
Keep me safe, O God, I've run for dear life to you. I say to God, "Be my Lord!" Without you, nothing makes sense.
