Major's Moment

Last week, we experimented with our dog, Brownie. We put her in the shed at night to protect her from the raccoons that we're pretty sure have attacked her. We also wanted to spare the neighborhood from a barking dog in the middle of the night. Brownie would also be nice and warm from the elements.

However, the next morning we found some of the shed door trim chewed up. Brownie was anxious being in a new place, a different scene, and didn't feel comfortable with being in the shed. She didn't realize that everything was done for her good and for the good of all. She just felt trapped and wanted to fight her way out.

Do you relate to that feeling? Sometimes we want to fight our way out of what should be a good thing. Why is that we often times don't want to see or can't see what is actually best?

Lord, help us to see how you are working in our lives - not to hurt us, but to help us, to help your kingdom.
