 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...


Psalm 16:1-2
 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.


  1. I like that, run like crazy! And you are so right, that is what we need to do instead of just sitting still; very good advice! Regardless of country living, possums, in the middle of our big town, have been known to be road kill from time to time (that and skunks).

    hope the day was a nice one!


  2. Run like crazy to God and sometimes run like crazy at the enemy :)


i really appreciate comment away...
